Chris Henrichsen Executive News Editor The ethics report of the Salt Lake Olympic Committee.i due out this week, and one might wonder how the pur image of Utah became tainted so quickly. Olympic pride was rampant in Utah as most Utahn anxiously awaited the arrival c the 2002 Winter Games. The came the KTVX report that th daughter of an lnternatione Olympic Committee (IOC) mem ber had received a $10,000 scholarship from the SLOC.

Namely, Brigham Young University, Salt Lake Community College, and most recently. UVSC. SLOC prx-viu'ed Attarabulsi a scholarsnip (they called it "humanitarian aid") that any student would almost kill for. In addition to having his tuition and books covered, Attarabulsi received a $700 dollar monthly living allowance. Attarabulsi spent three semesters at BYU, a while at Salt Lake community college and at least fall semester 1 998 at UVSC. He told the Deseret News that he still had two or three semesters left to finish his associate's degree, leaving some to wonder what he was doing all this time while living off SLOC. Attarabulsi vehemently denies that his scholarship was a bribe to buy the" vote of his father, Bashir Attarabulsi, in the Olympic bid process. "People think it is bribery.

A7 ment for a new student center, with the remaining increases being put into computer labs and student programs. Dave Nabrotzky, Student Body President, is proposing that the Utah County Journal Building be the new student services center. The Utah state legislature requires that the school obtain 125 percent of the funds needed to buy the UCJB. The additional 25 percent of the bond payment will put $3 million dollars towards the purchase of the building. The space on campus currently by student services will be remodeled into classroom space. "We recognize the need for classrooms due to the demand in our community for education at UVSC. As you are aware, it is not an easy project to get state approval for new buildings at UVSC. The students should never be burdened with the responsibility to fund new facilities.
