It has prompted UVSC to establish a rape crisis hotline. Diane George, a therapist at the Wellness Center, who graduated with a Masters of Social Work from BYU, says she has had several women come into her office claiming to have been sexually violated. This inspired her to create a group of volunteers to help provide 24-hour support for individuals involved in crisis situations. "If someone is on a date and they are uncomfortable, they can call the hotline and talk to their peers for sup port. If there is a major problem, there will be therapists on hand who can provide counseling and intervene in case of serious emergencies," said George. The hotline is expected to be operational by the end of the semester. "I'm so excited; this is my baby. This is something we have been working very long and hard on, and it will help educate so many students," George said. "I have different women coming in every week, up to several times a month, saying they've been raped. It's definitely a serious problem." "Part of the problem," George continued, "is that people don't talk about sex due to the predominance of Latter-day Saints, therefore these people go to college and have no idea what to do in a dating situation. They have no sense of personal sexual boundaries because the idea of sexual boundaries is foreign to them," she said. George works in conjunction with the Utah Rape Crisis Center coordinating"healthy dating" seminars that address issues of sexual violence. "I call the seminars 'healthy dating' or 'healthy relationships' because if I used the word 'rape' or 'sex,' the chance of people attending them will be lower and it's sad, but that's the attitude," she said. The hotline has been created during a time the U.S. Department of Health has dubbed the "Red Zone."

HOWELLS OF THE NETXNEWS STAFF The Provo City Fire Department . received a call at 11:35 a.m. Sept. 15 when a chemical fire caused multiple explosions at Liberty Safe in East Bay. Owners believe the fire broke out at the store, 298 East 600 South in Provo, and burned the store down was started by welders who were repairing the roof. An employee of the store, who called the fire department, reported the company had been engulfed in a billowing black plume of smoke that could be seen from 30-miles away, according to Salt Lake news reporters. Lead-based paint and acids contributed to the severity of the fire, store owners said. Upon arrival at the scene, Fire crews faced a warehouse full of acetylene, acetone, propane, and various other unseen hazards. The thick smoke blotted out the sun, bringing an eerie dusk to the Provo Valley which prompted the local Red Cross Emergency Response crews to evacuate area residents to an LDS Chapel. "We are quite upset because we were not adequately informed of the evacuation and danger posed until burning wood and metal fell into our backyard from one of the explosions," Samantha and Amber Dillenbeck said.

Battalion Chief Mike Bledsoe of the continued pg. 3 see "fi re Police warn: 'Students beware' By MEGAN CARLSON OF THE NETXNEWS STAFF The Provo City Police Department has been looking for the criminal or criminals who have been breaking into homes and stealing cash. Officers patrolling the Carterville area, which includes Bulldog Boulevard to University Parkway and North of State Street in Provo, have been called to robbery scenes quite frequently. "There has been an abnormally large amount of robberies in the Carterville area," explained Officer Franklin Arrowchis. "We have to stop it; we're afraid it may get to the point of someone getting hurt." The robberies have been going on for the last three months, and they happen only to girl's apartments. The police believe it is one male or two males who look similar. "Keep in mind that this area is mainly students. There are lots of guys who want to pick up on girls, so it is advantageous to him," explained Arrowchis. "This guy may be scouting apartments before the break-in. A couple of days prior to the incident, a guy will stop by looking for 'so-and so.' Then a couple of nights later, the girl will wake up to the same guy in her room or in the apartment. When he's confronted, he says he looking for 'so-and-so,' then he leaves... he's a smooth operator." The next morning the girl will notice her purse moved or cash missing. Normally radios, T.V.'s, or C.D.'s are stolen, but right now the burglar is only taking small items. "We find eighty percent of them burglars on drugs, so it's very dangerous for them to be in the apartment," explained Arrowchis. "Eventually there might be an assault, rape, or homicide." Arrowchis warns people to lock their doors even if they are waiting for a roommate to come home, lock the screens, continued pg. 3 see "Theft" Net Spot THE HOTTEST SPOTS IN: NewsxPolitics r5.hMus1irtteam5.:om youthvote2000.orgnews OTn.comALLPOLrnCS msn.com mtv.comnavintrochoose orloose 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 majorleaguebaseball.com nflfans.com nfltalk.com espn.go.com nba.com wnba.com I320kfan.com Interview with a candidate By JARE0 W. BLACKLET OF THE NETXNEWS STAFF Bill Orton, the democratic gubernatorial candidate, is somewhat of a political phenomenon for these parts. Not only was he elected to represent the people of Utah's 3rd district in Congress- quite possibly the most conservative district in the nation. ..a place where, rumor has it, many people wanted the state animal to be an.ele-phant--in 1991, but he was also reelected four years later. Yet, I have discovered that many students don't even know who he is or for what office he is currently running. Mike Leavitt, by comparison, seems to be a household name.

Bush, Gore agree to four debates By DOUGLAS K1KER ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITER WASHINGTON (AP) Republican George W. Bush, giving in after a two-week battle over debates, agreed Thursday to Democrat Al Gore's demand that they meet in three prime-time confrontations sponsored by a bipartisan panel. The running mates will debate once. Americans will see Bush and Gore go head to head on television Oct. 3 in Boston, Oct. 11 in Winston-Salem, N.C., and Oct. 17 in St. Louis, with each debate starting at 9 p.m. EDT and lasting 90 minutes, according to the agreement reached Thursday. Details on the format must be worked out, and the campaigns were to meet on that Friday. Bush's communi- cations director, Karen Hughes, said the Texas governor is still pressing for the "more free-flowing and more spontaneous format" that had been a major part of his earlier debate plans. Bush previously had balked at the proposal of the bipartisan Commission on Presidential Debates, but he has been under pressure to accept, not only from Democratic foes, but from Republicans who wanted him to put the distraction behind him. The agreement was announced by Bush campaign chairman Don Evans and his Democratic counterpart, Gore campaign chairman William Daley, after their first joint meeting with the debate commission.
