The parking lots of Cambridge on Devonshire (CoD) often become overcrowded due to narrow parking spots and double-parking.
On occasion, individuals have also voiced their concerns of having their cars scratched or dented by adjacent cars. CoD should assign a number to each parking space, and have a tag for the resident's vehicle matching that parking space number and current license plate or have the night guard on duty verify cars are in their designated locations. Parking spots should be widened to assure drivers can enter and exit their cars comfortably, decreasing the probability of accidents.
Parking spaces should be assigned upon the resident's apartment lease date.
CoD should have security cameras installed ensuring that there are no hit and runs occurring within the safety of their gated parking areas. Parking spots should still be widened to ensure that tenants are able to get out of their cars comfortably.
There was little debate, no dissension and no vote when Syracuse University Chancellor Kenneth A. Shaw consulted his board of trustees executive committee April 6 about barring the Hiawatha-Seaway Council of the Boy Scouts of America from using the Carrier Dome for its annual Boypower Dinner.
The Scouts had used the Dome and the university's catering service for 17 of the past 18 years, raising as much as $500,000, before Shaw decided that the Boy Scout policy excluding openly homosexual adult leaders was at odds with the University's mission.
However, in June 2000, the United States supreme Court ruled that the Boy Scouts, a private organization, were within their constitutional rights to bar homosexuals as scoutmasters. Syracuse University is penalizing the Boy Scouts of America because the almost-century old organization both refuses to nullify its pledge to be "morally straight" and will not abandon its central mission to teach young boys what George A. Davidson, a lawyer for the organization, described to the Supreme Court as "true manliness" - a man's responsibility in marriage and fatherhood.
