Reader claims parking exists

To the Editor:

To the Editor:

It is amazing that apparently many Tech students think there is a problem with parking near campus. I donít know what this is based on, other than being symptomatic of a modern American disease ó perhaps it should be called ďIím young and healthy, and I have legs, but I donít want to use themĒ Syndrome.

There are plenty of lots only a few short blocks from campus for students and plenty of free street parking on routes like Louisiana Avenue, where there are plenty of spaces every day no more than three blocks away.

I know, because I walk to work every day, rain or shine, hot or cool.

I live almost exactly a mile from the GTM building where my office is located. 

This is not a long walk, and the idea that most people these days consider it too far is probably causally related to a variety of common health problems.  In fact, the walks to and from work are some of the best parts of my day.

Iron Dawgs need help, too

Regarding the article last week appearing in The Tech Talk about the debate team not being able to defend its national title because of the hold on matching funds for clubs, they are not the only club in jeopardy of not being able to defend their National title.

The Louisiana Tech Powerlifting Team is also facing the same hardship if these funds stay on a hold status.

We have to travel farther this year than we have had to in several years, requiring us to raise more money than in recent years to travel to the meet and compete for Louisiana Tech University.

This plays a major role in our defense of the menís national title, and reclaiming the womenís national title.

So please help us out with our fundraisers.
