to CS parking problem by Brian Boyer Battalion Reporter A plan to contract a towing service to discourage parking on major streets was discussed by the College Station City Council Thursday night. Some no-parking /ones already have tow-away zone notices posted, City Manager North Bardell said. Until a tow ing service is contracted by the city, however, offending vehi cles will merely be ticketed, lie said. Brazos County STOPPER 775-TIPS Bardell said that illegal park ing is a problem near shopping centers and apartment com plexes that do not provide con venient or adequate parking for tenents. The plan is designed especially to discourage parking in fire lanes, he said. Along some streets, illegally parked cars force shuttle buses to stop in traffic, Bardell said. Requiring offending motorists to pay a towing fee in addition to a traffic citation should discour age illegal parking, he said. “Given the amount of money it costs to build a major street, it shouldn’t be used as a parking lot,” Mayor Gary Halter said. “You can build a parking lot a whole lot cheaper than you can a major thoroughfare,” he said. Halter said that he would like to eliminate parking along Jersey Street, which he said is being used as a parking lot by motorists without a Texas A&rM parking permit. Other business before tbe council included a budget re quest of $10,650 to help finance the Bryan/College Station Clean Community System. The coun cil approved the request, which must be matched by Bra/os County and the City of Bryan to meet the Clean Community Sys tem’s $51,950 budget. The Col lege Station City Council also passed a resolution approving the organization’s bylaws. In other business, a proclama tion designating the first Mon day in November as Teacher Appreciation Day was signed by Halter. The council approved an ordinance establishing a licens ing procedure for grave services before adjourning to a closed session to discuss land acquisi tion and personnel.

It was the guys who drink Lite Beer from Miller because it tastes great, against the guys who drink it because it’s less filling. And once again, the All-Stars proved they’re in a league by themselves. After a lot of pins (and quite a few Lite Beers) went down and the smoke finally cleared, the score was tied, with only one man left to go. Rodney Dangerfield. All he needed to win it was one pin. Aklutzsituation. Rodney, in topform,gotthesameamount of pins as he gets respect. None. ir Teammate Ben Davidson felt Rodney deserved a break, or at least a fracture. Billy Martin didn’t argue with that. Jim Honochick couldn’t believe his eyes. Neither could Marv Throneberry. So the First Lite Beer Bowling Tournament ended in a draw. And the argument over the best thing about Lite \ was left unsettled. 1 But there was one thing everyone agreed B on. It was truly every thing you always wanted in a bowling tournament.
