CNN predicted that Gore woidd win Florida, but after a close call a vote recount was mandated By ROB BEARD OF THE NETXNEWS STAFF NATIONAL Texas Governor George W. Bush cautiously declared himself winner of the 2000 Presidential Campaign Wednesday, despite the fact that his narrow lead in Florida was pending investigation. Bush's announcement came after a wild night of election results, one that saw George W. Bush projected to both lose and win the presidency. By the time the dust settled Wednesday morning, national polling revealed that Al Gore had won the popular vote by only 167,813 votes. But the all-important electoral college picture wasn't as clear. At the heart of the election is the hotly contested state of Florida a considerable prize in any election year the deciding fac- NetXNews revamps internet site By AMBER VOORHEES OF THE NETXNEWS STAFF Utah Valley State College has a new link to the world wide web. Campus Engine has aided the construction of the new NetXNews.net. The project has been completed and running since Tuesday. NetXNews.net has been designed specifically to connect the newspaper to the students in an interactive way. It offers a variety of features that will give students access to up to date news from the The College Times, and online study groups for students to meet on the web. Ovilla Wilson, Editor-in-chief, said, "I think the key is interaction. The students can get on and respond to any of the stories, they can set up an email account.. .participate in forums for study groups, and the newspaper is updated daily." Scott Holdsworth has worked to make the project come to life. Gavin Payne has been working alongside Holdsworth. Payne said that he thinks that it is overall a great thing for the school. It will enhance browsing on the internet, and has made it easier for the web staff crew. Campus Engine will be a benefit to the school and those who belong to the college newspaper by generating money from more ads, sponsors, and links. Students of UVSC can retrieve notes from class as well as study together. Log on to www.netxnews.net for more. tor in this year's contest. It is impossible for either candidate to win the presidency without carrying the state. Florida's 25 electoral college votes go to the candidate who finishes with the most votes in the state. At issue this year is just who that candidate is. When most of Florida's polls closed at 7 p.m. ET Tuesday, major news networks estimated that Gore had carried the state and would get the electoral college votes. The Bush camp emphatically insisted that their data indicated a Bush win in the state. However, for the next three hours Florida was attributed to Gore. The situation became frenetic at about 10 p.m. ET, when media outlets retracted their projections concerning Florida and moved the state to the undecided list. At that point it became clear that in order to take the presidency, the winner would have to acquire Florida and its 25 votes. As the night wore on, optimism began to build in the Bush camp. Election results showed Bush ahead in Florida throughout the night, although Gore began to close the gap as more precincts reported. Meanwhile, Gore took the all-important states of Pennsylvania, Michigan, and California. Bush built his electoral college total with victories throughout the Midwest, South, and West. Despite winning the big electoral prizes, Gore was unable to pull ahead. The battle waged until 2 a.m. ET, when the media consortium declared George W. Bush the winner of Florida, and its 25 votes. The projected win gave Bush 271 electoral college votes one more than he r 4 " y .. y: . jr" p ' 1 A 'v - 1 :.. ; - I ' - . ., A TAMMY SWANKTHE COLLEGE TIMES continued pg. 3 see "Bush" Voters discover the true meaning of "YOUR VOTE COUNTS" this election. . : , ; .i ,j -. . , . :: . i A , : i v' . ."

They are still trying to explain why their candidates experienced minimal success. By DANIELLE WHITE OF THE NETXNEWS STAFF UTAH COUNTY The buck stops here. Whereas the national elections kept Americans in a juger-naunt of suspense, Utah GOP appear to have reigned supreme as expected. There are some familiar faces. Republican Gov. Mike O. Leavitt, Chris Cannon, Curtis Bramble, Representative Glenn Way, and Utah County Commissioner Gary Herbert were all re-elected. "I had a lot of people ask me to run again. I wanted to be apart of keeping the train going in the right direction," said Herbert. "It was expected that Utah would have a clean sweep. I hope to bring a good face, again, to the county Republican party, especially after the conflicts with Comissioner David Gardner," he said. Herbert said that priority number one on his agenda is the fiscal budget and "preparing for the future." Cannon agreed. "I thought it would be terrible if a Democrat ran Utah County. This area is the most conservative in the country," he said. Cannon added that if local government spent fiscal funds wisely that a four-percent tax cut could be implemented. "If we didn't spend the surplus, we could help education. I expect that this year more will be done for UVSC," Cannon said. Education and balance of power are two issues Bill Wright, State Senate District 17-elect, plans to tackle. "We need to keep pur moral compasses in tact and prosper," Wright said. "We need to relieve the burdens on taxpayers and remind the state that schools belong to the taxpayers, not continued pg. 3 see "State' Net Spot THE HOTTEST SPOTS IN: NewsPolitics youtfivote2LXW.orgnews www.l-l5.com cnn.comWiPOUTIQmsn.com netxnews.netnews msnbc.comnewsdefault.asp Entertainment: utahvalleymall.com music.utah.edupagessche dules utahvalleymusic.com moviefone.com Music Online: emusic.com liquidaudio.com MP3.com Student helps: makingcollegecount.com edu.com fastweb.com firetalk.com lycos.com Sports: uvsc.eduathletics nflfans.com nhl.com nfltalk.com espn.go.com nba.com I320kfan.com Service: unitedwayuc.org volunteer-unitedwayuc.org uvsc.eduldssa Dear Elder: YouVe got mail! By CLARKE CALDWELL OF THE NETXNEWS STAFF Dave Bateman and Ben Zimmer, both BYU students, and UVSC student Amanda Webb launched a new Web site almost two weeks ago designed to assist communications lines to LDS missionaries serving in third-world countries. The Web site, DearElder.com is a free service to all. To use DearElder.com, the only information required to enter while using the Web site is the name of the missionary and the mission. Once the letter is typed and submitted, it is sent to Bateman and Zimmer, who print the letter onto paper, stamp it, and take it to the local pouch in Provo. "All you need to know is the name of the missionary and the the mission and you're good to go," Zimmer explained. "We print the letter and mail it that day." Bateman, an information systems major from Billings, Montana, developed the idea after viewing other missionary Web sites and recognizing the opportunity to help missions who receive mail through a pouch. According to Bateman, using the website is cheaper and faster. "Their mailing systems are inefficient. Pouches are sent priority to ensure that people get their letters, and we're taping into that resource," he said. "We get the letters into the pouch faster because we're closer. It speeds things up, it's easier and it's cheaper." "It saves the hassle more than anything," added Zimmer, an English major from Port Orchard, Washington.

BROWN OF THE NETXNEWS STAFF Stephen R. Covey, best-selling author of 'The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People' and other popular books, spoke to an eager crowd of UVSC faculty and students on Wednesday in the Reagan Theater and Ballroom. Covey was here as part of an "Excellence through Education" series of speakers hosted by ASUVSC. The session was free to any and all. Its purpose was for students and others who have never heard him to listen and learn and to pave, for the desired students, a path to college success and life fulfillment. "I'm going to focus on 4 attributes if students will cultivate in their life at school and after school it will bring them to great success," Covey said before the speech, "The 4 attributes deal with body, mind, heart, and spirit, the four parts of our nature." The four parts of human nature each possess an intelligence within.
