Several College Station city
boards are talking about getting
tough and cracking down on
Northgate parking problems.

and the Zoning Board of Adjust

ful of Northgate merchants,
toured Northgate Wednesday
night to get a first-hand look at
problems with inadequate park
ing and unused lots and to hear
suggestions of fered by the mer
The major complaint of the
merchants is inadequate park
ing. They say their parking lots,
which are supposed to be re
served for customers, are always
filled with cars whose owners are
not shopping for books. The
merchants say that students
simply store their cars in these
packing lots rather than battling
the parking problem on
There were various sugges
tions about the problem. Some
merchants suggested one hour
parking limits at Northgate, J^o

Other merchants suggested
tougher means of getting stu
dents’ attentions — such as plac
ing clamps on the tires of any
cars which violate parking reg

effectively prevent people from
moving their cars before they
could be towed.
All the merchants seemed to
agree that stricter enforcement
by the police would help the
Another meeting between the
city boards and Northgate mer
chants was tentatively set fqr the
end of the month. The mer

the lead singer for the group.

while on tour with a gospel

Vegas. On the tour, he met sin

turned to Houston, he sent West

Larry Gatlin and the Gatlin Brothers Band will
be performing in G. Rollie White Coliseum
tonight at 8 p.m.
The turning point for the
Gatlin Brothers came when they
released the album “Larry Gat
lin, Family and Friends” which
included the hit “Broken Lady.”
That song got them a Grammy
Award in 197(i.
Since then the Gatlin brothers
have recorded hits like “Statues
Without Hearts,” “I Don’t Wan
na Cry,” “Love is Just a Game,”
“Night Time Magic” and “All
the Gold in California,” all writ
ten by Larry.
The Bellamy Brothers, whose
hits include “If I Said You Had
A Beautiful Body, Would You
Hold It Against Me," “Sugar
Daddy” and “Lovers Live Lon
ger,” will open for the Gatlin
Brothers. The Bellamys hold
the distinction of having more
number one hit singles than any
other country music duo today.
Tickets for the 8 p.m. concert
are S7, $7.50 and $8 and are
