We are going to do that with Independent Music Showcase," says IMS Producer Greg Hansen. "The major difference would be that we're partners with education." Terry Petrie, coordinator of productions and former intern director for the Sundance Film Festival, says that IMS benefits UVSC because "We have people who are making their living as professionals, rubbing shoulders with students who are shooting towards those goals." Dennis Lisonbee, television producer and Media Systems Designer, says, "The idea is to promote the independent music in Utah."

Combine this with the creative academia at UVSC, and there is a great possibility that IMS will go far. To those who experienced the show, IMS was an impressive demonstration of what we can do here at UVSC in student media. As Lisonbee put it, "We're digital magicians." IMS not only offers exposure to Utah artists, but it also presents innovative opportunities for UVSC students to obtain real hands-on experience in live multimedia productions. IMS was not just an event, but an organization that will require continued participation in hosting, IV production, concert production, and marketing. The effect was a polished, professional show, recorded live for Gardner cleared in conflict of interest concern V Stacy hmmons HA" nJilor-in-Clucf In the January 26th issue of The College Times, the question was raised as to whether Utah County Commissioner David Gardner was in fact violating constitutional statutes by teaching part-time at UVSC. According to Asst. Attorney General David Jones, the statutes in question do not apply to Gardner and therefore present no conflict of interest."No one has complained with regards to David Gardner's status as a college faculty menibei at the same time as Utah County Commissioner. When the student newspaper at UVSC raised the question, the allegations were looked into and it appeared that television broadcast, as well as a bampkraibum of the performed artists. This was made possible because IMS was able to overcome the challenges of establishing distribution channels, obtain funding to produce a sampler album of the performed artists, and put together an official web site. One of the goals of IMS was to create an environment where students could learn as they work. In bringing the show together, UVSC student services teamed up with Multimedia Communications Technology (MCT) to provide the effects, and with Lisonbee's Multimedia marketing class to provide the marketing project necessary to get the word spread. Alisha Dewey, Student project director, See IMS CONTINUED on pg.7 the statutes quoted by the reporter did not apply to Gardner's position. There is no apparent conflict with him being a part time teacher at UVSC and Utah County Commissioner," he said. In regards to Gardner's position as a whole, Tom Hover, Dean of Student Life here at UVSC feels that the negative media attention is unwarranted. "I feel sorry for him. It seems as though instead of lending a helping hand as a community, the news media is just interested in taking another piece of him," he said.

There will be two presentations on Wednesday, Feb. 2: the first will be held from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. in the Ragan theater, and the other is scheduled in the evening from 7 to 8:30 p.m. in room 213 in the Student Center. Norris will introduce England and speak about what the position of a writer-in-residence can do for the community and the school. Following his speech, he will present some of his critically acclaimed poetry. Following Norris 's presentation, England will read some of his personal essays, including one about the holocaust which was published in Sewanee Revue, a prestigious literary journal. England says he hopes for the audience to come away with a better understanding of writers- in-residence and an appreciation for Student Center expansion on horizon IT Ryan Rogers A NetXNews Reporter Thanks to a huge increase in student numbers and a significant rise in student fees, the approval of the UVSC Student Center addition, which has been in the works for two to three years, is close to a done deal. The project is being funded by an eight dollar increase in student fees, implemented last semester. Now with the House, Senate, and Governor's approval, the 11 million dollar change will begin. Ken Mathews, Director of Student Center auxiliary services, is excited for the improvements to begin. "We've made a few modifications to the plans, so after approval, the architects have until March 17th to change the plans," he said. After adjusting the plans, the architects will prepare to submit them to a number of financial the wide range of existing Mormon literature. He also hopes that by familiarizing the public with himself and his abilities as a writer-in-residence, he will be invited by teachers and schools to speak to students and encourage writing. Norris has visited grade schools, high schools and colleges around the community and state to talk about the importance of writing and its inevitable influence on society. England came to UVSC in October of 1998, shortly after his retirement from BYU. Lucille Stoddard, vice president of academic affairs, invited him to take a half-time position as awriter-in-residence to encourage young, aspiring writers and to help the college community gain a better appreciation for writing. "It is quite an accomplishment for UVSC to do this. Usually a writer-in-residence is something that happens only after a school has become a university and is well established with a developed writing program. To start this early with this program is a sign of maturity; a forward-looking vision that they really want to develop writing as an important part of " RESIDDJCE CONfiNUED anpg. 3 institutions for bidding.

It will add 87,150 gross square feet and 66,750 net square feet or usable space. The new Student Center is expected to be a beautiful facility with a completely different look. Balconies, skylights and large tiling will all contribute to a more spacious and comfortable atmosphere for students to enjoy. Additional upgrades include a ballroom twice the size of the current one, a new game room, a revamped commons area and even a convenience store where students can "refuel" for the day.
