Students raise $2013 for Utah Food Bank by Candice Bowman News Reporter ASUVSC recently hosted the "Halloween Against Hunger" fund raiser and proceeds were presented to the Utah Food Bank on Thursday. Money was raised at five different locations in an unusual way. by playing a game. The "Scratch out Hunger" game was put together in lieu of collecting canned food. Donators scratched off one or more spots on a game card and donated the amounts that were revealed. The game pieces were amounts anywhere from five cents to three dollars. Those who scratched more than two places received a free discount pizza card. On Oct. 16. the Associated Students of UVSG hosted a movie night in the McKay Events Center. During this event, more than $130 was raised. Donations were collected from the "Make a Wish" fountain in front of the cafeteria. $1 40 in change was collected from this fountain. Oct. 24 was "Make a Difference Day." This is an annual nationally recognized day in which service organizations go out and complete service projects in their communities. Members of student government collected nearly $1 ,500 dollars from the community. Students stood in front of Wal-Mart with the "Scratch Out Hunger" game cards collecting donations and Wal-Mart matched each dollar that they received. There were also several anonymous donations from members of ASUVSC. $2013 was raised for the Utah Food Bank. Per each dollar that was donated, the food bank is able to purchase $!9.50 worth of canned foods at bargain prices. By purchasing discounted cans with dents or missing labels, the food bank is able to squeeze the most out of each dollar. In other words, the $2013.26 dollars that was donated will be used to purchase more than $39,258 worth of food. From each dollar that is donated, seven meals can be prepared. That's more than 14,092 meals that will be served. Chad Whimpey. a member of ASUVSC who participated in the "Halloween Against Hunger" fund raiser, had a lot to say about the event. The "Scratch Out Hunger" game was a huge success. We raised $2,013.26. Everybody was super willing to jump in and help out. The money will go towards meals for people in need. The Utah Food Bank provides food to a lot of families who can't always afford it. For every dollar that we raised at Wal-Mart, they matched it. I think we ended up with about $1,000 from collecting money at Wal-Mart." Anyone interested in donating should contact the Utah Food Bank directly, or stop by the student government office located in SC 104. rx r J r j in n I H f I I Gang s gain turf in Utah County by Joseph Senior Stake Stone R K PORT E R Gangs are here Utah County! Are civilians prepared to make the lives of gang members miserable? High school teenagers are reading "Romeo and Juliet" for a reason and it's not just to gain appreciation for Shakespeare. The play demonstrates the bitter outcome of hate crimes and violence and kids are presently getting involved in gangs at a younger age than the Romeo of sixteen. Educators across Utah attended a Gang Awareness Conference held at UVSC last week to coordinate police and educators efforts. They focused their work on how to hit home the hard mes- SEE GANGS CONTINUED ON PG. 3 .. ""'... -l.i. k !yi ii i l Candice BowmanVThe College Times WHY DO THEY DO IT? Motivational factors of gang members that commit drive-bys REVENGE When law enforcemerl knows tfia? rival gangs have had a dispute, they can anticipate that one will retaliate against the other. ANGER The anger element comes out the most in traffic disputes. It is difficult to predict when a gang member will get angry enough to shoot someone. It is the most dangerous motive tor an armed gang member TURF PROTECTION Turf shootings occur when gang members feel someone is invading their territory. INTIMIDATION The most common reason for the use of intimidation by gang members is to scare rival gang members. They commonly brandish weapons and make threats toward opposing gang members. THRILL SEEKERS This motive accounts for a higher percentage of drive-by shootings each year. Like the pyromaniac. kleptomaniac and even the serial killer, gang members seem to keep doing it until they are caught. But they are difficult to catch because of their lack of viable motive and random selection of their activities.

The bare expanse known as the hall of flags is once again back to normal. Early last week, the flags on the the east wall in the hall of flags, which represent various countries, were taken down in preparation for international week presented by ASUVSC. On Thursday, as part of the week's festivities, the Associated Students of UVSC led a parade of flag bearers from the international student office down the hall of flags. Student counsel members, international students, resident students, and staff joined together to participate in the parade. Following the parade was a flag ceremony in which the flags that were removed from the hall last week were rehung by students from the various countries represented here on campus. The hall of Flags was temporarily transformed into the "hall of many lands," with cultural clubs displaying items from their country including music and food. The parade led to the south end of the hall of flags where Paul Thopmson, Rick Bastian and Joe Creer sang the National Anthem as Justin Cleg hung the first flag, the American Flag. Flags from each country were then rehung in alphabetical order. Participants were excited as students hung flags from their native countries. Onlookers cheered for those who are far away from home. More than seventy seven different countries are represented this semester here at UVSC. According to an international student census, as of October 1 2, 1 998 there was a total of 580 international students enrolled in classes.

"The others hadn't had a place to play for several years and I said, if people need a place to play.' I'll do it." Hill said.
