VALLEY WEATHER TODAY: Parly Cloudy High 55 Low 30 Tuesday Sunny High 56 Low 30 Halloween Sunny High 52 Low 28 7 j-4Sl IL lye L By Steve Schaack OF THE NETXNEWS STAFi" Last Thursday afternoon UVSC school president Kerry Romesburg and other leaders of the school took questions from the students on issues that are affecting the campus.Topics covered ranged from, parking, tuition, adjunct faculty, and athletics. On the issue of parking President Romesburg and Vice President Brad Cook said that we are out of parking spaces and there is only way to go and that is up. The onlv downside to going up is that it cost too much. They mentioned that out in the new free parking there is a big mound and that they would try to turn that all into parking but after that there are no other options. Romesburg and Cook both said that this is a major concern because 10 years from now they are expected to be the larges institution in the state with close to 40,000 students. The following are excerpts from comments made by President Romesburg as well as Vice President Brad Cook. President Romesburg and Cook on going NCAA "I suspect when we become a university people will still call us a technical college or a community col- i. 1 v i 1 r I J several athletic conferences in the west. What we are waiting for right now is that there is a two-year moratorium on any movement in the NCAA until June of next year... Even if we do get the transition we are still waiting for a conference that will take us. We have the best facilities in the country, not just for being JC." Romesburg on adjunct faculty and tuition "We have a very heavy reliance on adjunct faculty. Andrew GrMiDetinewi That happens because of fund- J ing from the state.

"Right now our strategic plan is that we are going to make that transition to the NCAA. We are visiting full time faculty. Last year we looked at this and we has some departments that has as many as three fourths, some with two thirds of classes taught by adjunct faculty. This is much too high.

Courtsey Photos v By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS OF THE AP WIRE WASHINGTON- President Bush on Friday signed a sweeping anti-terrorism bill into law, giving police and intelligence agencies vast new powers to "counter a threat like no other our nation has ever faced." "Today, we take an essential step in defeating terrorists while protecting the constitutional rights of all Americans," Bush said in an East Room ceremony even as the government grappled with a series of anthrax cases that may be linked to the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. "This government will enforce this law with all the urgency of a nation at war," Bush said. The legislation, while somewhat weakened from the administration's original proposal, expands the FBI's wiretapping and electronic surveillance authority and imposes stronger penalties for harboring or financing terrorists. It increases the number of crimes considered terrorist acts and toughens the punishment for committing them. The bill also gives policewide-ranging new anti-terrorism powers to secretly search people's homes and business records and to eavesdrop on telephone and computer conversations. "This law will give intelligence and law enforcement officials new tools to fight a present danger," Bush said. The ceremony, attended by Vice President Dick Cheney, lawmakers and uniformed law enforcement officials, came one day after Attorney General John Ashcroft said the Justice Department will begin using the new powers immediately. "Upon the president's signature, I will direct investigators and prosecutors to begin immediately seeking court orders to intercept communications related to an expanded list of crimes under the legislation," he said. Lawmakers, worried about possible abuse of the new wiretapping and surveillance powers, placed a four-year cap on that part of the legislation. "It gives us the time to investigate "anti-terrorism" continued on pg. 3 Hate crimes repeal denied By ASSOCIATED PRESS OF THE NETNEWS STAFF SALT LAKE CITY -Utah's 1992 hate crimes law has never been used and is considered by prosecutors to be unenforceable.A move to repeal the law was before the Legislature's Judiciary Committee Wednesday, but it look no action. Some proponents of hate-crime legislation considered that a victory. " They just made a decision to leave it alone because the heat's too high," - ' J Hispanic activist James Conales. Gonales worked for years will) the late Sen. Pete Suao and others to pass a bill that would punish crimes committed out of halied.

Paul Boyden of the Statewide Association of Prosecutors told the committee Wednesday that the statute is "simply not workable." But the argument took a back seat to symbolism Wednesday. Speaker after speaker warned lawmakers about "sending the wrong message" with a repeal. "Yes, it's against the law to hit people, it's against the law to rob people," said Ken Gardner of the Utah A I I .-CIO. "But the motive for it is also important." Pignanelli, who no longer is in the Legislature, suggested the law be left in place and fixed by amendments. Kep. Mike Thompson, R-Orem, proposed the repeal, contending (hat hale cuiiies legislation is a violation of the U.S. Constitution's equal-protection clause. "I do mil believe and I will never believe that by doing something unequal we are going to make lliings more equal," he said. "hate crimes" continued on pg. 3 Anthrax scare in Utah By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS OF THE AP WIRE SALT LAKE CITY- A man accused of an anthrax-letter hoax pleaded innocent to three charges in federal court Thursday. A federal grand jury charged Terry L. Olson of Price with threatening to use a biological weapon and two counts of giving false information to a police officer. The first charge carries a maximum penally of life in prison and a $250,000 fine. The second two charges each carry a maximum penalty of five years in prison and $250,000 fine. Olson is accused of placing a mixture of sugar and Nesquick in a piece of junk mail and showing the letter lo his neighboi and four of her relatives on Oct. I V All of tliem were tested for anthrax and started on antibiotics. Olson allegedly admitted the hoax when I ll agents started asking questions about the containers of sugar and drink mix they saw on his kitchen counter. FBI agent Carole Covert told a judge at a prior hearing that Olson faked the letter because he wanted "to see what he looked like on television." Stephen McCaughey said his client will also undergo a full competency mental-health evaluation. The exam could take up to 90 days. " The action itself leads to some indication there may be mental problems," he said after Thursday's hearing.He said his client was looking for 15 minutes of fame. But he called the charges 'overealous.' "I'd hate to see someone with no prior record put away for life," he said. "This was a dumb mistake made at a bad period of time." Brooke C. Wells, assistant U.S. attorney, said in response, " This case is extraordinarily serious." Olson's trial is set for Jan. 2 before U.S. Disriict Judge David Sain. nnn r-i n JlJgJLL 0 CDdDDDDCin QDDDi3 Calendar Its almost time for Halloween and costumes are scarce, find out just where to wear your costume.
