Page 6 THE BATTALION FRIDAY, MARCH 28, 1980 Rychlik gets planning post kii By Becky Swanson City Staff The Bryan City Council appointed Judy Rychlik to fill the unexpired term on the Bryan Planning Commission left vacant by the resignation of Morris Hamilton. Rychlik took her post at the March 20 meeting of the commis sion. Her term runs through October 1982. City Planner Hubert Nelson said Hamilton, a building con tractor, resigned because he did not have time to attend the meet ings. Hamilton had not attended any of the commission meetings this year. Rychlik has served as president of the Bryan Chamber of Com merce, has been active in the March of Dimes and United Fund, and is the president of the annual community festival, Bra zos de Dios. Rychlik said she became in terested in city planning when she was in the chamber of com merce working on growth and planning projects. D. D. Williamson, chairman of the planning commission, said Rychlik has been appointed to the development and transportation committees of the commission. Rychlik said she felt she was appointed to represent the whole community. Members of the commission are often appointed because of their expertise and experience with real estate or building and construction, Rychlik explained. She said she felt she had been appointed to represent the com munity’s interests. “I have no personal gain by being on the planning commis sion,” she said. “They (the city council) wanted someone who was interested in the city. “I think everything we do in one part of the community affects the whole community. ” Students can view life from wheelchai r By ROSEMARY ALYEA Campus Rep campus neporter Every person has those days when going to class is an effort, and fatigue hangs on every step.
