It seems like the reconfiguration of Utah's freeway system will never end, but there is hope according to the Department of Transportation. It is anticipated that the University Parkway construction will be completed no later than fall of 2001. Geoffrey P. Dupaix, Region Three Involvement Coordinator for the State of Utah Department of Transportation, addressed the status of the construction and what students and faculty can expect. "The construction is going to effect how students and faculty get to and from school. Yes, UVSC is losing the hook ramp. It may not be as smooth of a transition to get onto the freeway and to merge into traffic, but I don't think it will be as bad as maybe most people think," Dupaix said. The Sand Hill Road hook entrance, near UVSC's baseball fields, will be replaced by safer and more convenient access to 1-15 northbound. "The plans show two right hand lanes merging right onto the freeway. There is going to be more space. The place where it is going to be somewhat constricted is there at that light because you don't have a lot of room." The plans show what is known as a 'Single Point Urban Interchange.' This means traffic will be contained through one light. The system will be similar to the ones used on Bangerter Highway and 10600 South in Sandy. The 'Single Point Urban Interchange' will be one of the ways in which the Department of Transportation hopes to increase the safety of travel on and off the University Parkway exit. One of the commonly unnoticed hazards of the exit is the condition of the concrete pillars under the overpass. The department is deeply concerned with the safety of everyone and will not leave that project untouched. "You look at the pillars, and the concrete is breaking apart, that's a big safety concern. You know if we do have an earthquake or if something happens and that bridge falls apart and kills someone, then people are going to be up in arms and continued pg. 3 see "i-i5" L. ' ,.

Tuition increase by 4-percent, not 25 Romesburg says tuition will not increase drastically, now discussions say 4-percent. By 0VILLA WILSON OF THE NETXNEWS STAFF A four percent tuition increase was discussed and will likely be approved for eight Utah colleges and universities with some latitude for additional increases to be decided by each school. The increase was discussed at the latest board meeting at Weber State University where students gathered to protest the tuition hike of historic proportions being discussed. Rumors implied the increase would be about 25 percent, a figure proposed by UVSC President Kerry Romesburg. "I suppose it is probably safe to expose this now, I tried to get the support of the other eight presidents in getting a 25 percent increase across the board. This was a contrived condition," Romesburg said. The intention was never to really increase tuition by that much, Romesburg said, we just wanted to get students and educators upset enough to speak out. "Not surprisingly, the members of the Board of Regents were not really willing to take that much heat," Romesburg said. In fact, Romesburg said he was proud of students who participated in the rally to continued pg. 3 see "Tuition" r N V.,: ' .

'Charlie's Angel' tops box office By DAVIO GERMAIN AP MOVIE WRITER LOS ANGELES (AP) "Charlie's Angels" got a heavenly reception at theaters as the cheeky update of the TV series soared to the top of the box office with $40.5 million in ticket sales. The movie starring Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore and Lucy Liu as the glamorous detectives had the second-best debut ever outside of May, June and July, the summer blockbuster season. Last year's "Toy Story 2" took in $57.4 million from Friday to Sunday over Thanksgiving and $80.1 million for the five-day holiday weekend. This weekend's other new movie, Robert Redford's golf parable "The Legend of Bagger Vance," opened in third place with $12 million, according to studio estimates Sunday. It stars Matt Damon and Will Smith. The overall box office was up for the fourth straight weekend after a long slump that started in midsummer. The top 12 movies took in $97.3 million, up 55 percent from the same weekend in 1999. Hollywood's revenues are running slightly ahead of last year's, when the industry took in a record $7.5 billion. More big offerings arrive in the next few weeks, including "Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas," Adam Sandler's "Little Nicky" and "102 Dalmatians." The industry could break last year's Thanksgiving box-office record of $225.5 million and finish the year with revenues at an all-time high, said Paul Dergarabedian, president of Exhibitor Relations, which tracks ticket sales. "Going into Thanksgiving, I've never seen this depth of potential blockbusters ever," Dergarabedian said. "The holiday is usually dominated by one film." Playing in 3,037 theaters, "Charlie's Angels" averaged a healthy $13,336 a cinema. "Bagger Vance" averaged $5,S22 in 2,061 theaters. "Charlie's Angels" drew criticism from reviewers for its thin plot but praise for its campy humor and glossy action.

AP MEDICAL WRITER LONDON (AP) British teens are smoking less, and talking more on cell phones. A couple of researchers think that may not be a coincidence. The cell phone seems to compete with cigarettes as teen statements of fashion and rebellion, the scientists suggested in a letter published in the British Medical Journal. While cigarette smoking among British 15-year-olds has dropped from 30 percent in 1996 to 23 percent in 1999, cell phone ownership had risen sharply over the same period to about 70 percent today, the scientists noted. "The mobile phone has a niche in teen-agers' lives that occupies the same place as cigarettes. It meets the same needs," said one of the theory's proponents, Clive Bates, director of Action on Smoking and Health in London. "Many kids can't afford to do both." "It sounds perfectly reasonable," said Sir Richard Doll, the Oxford University professor who first confirmed the link between smoking and cancer. "We've just got to sit and watch it for longer, to see if it turns out to be real." However, American researchers say any link would probably not be mirrored in the United States. Saul Shiffman, professor of psychology at the University of Pittsburgh, is skeptical and believes the teen smokers and cell phone users are different types of adolescents. Smokers tend to be from lower income groups. Teen use of cell phones boomed in Britain with the spread of"pay-as-you-go" service, which require no credit checks, no parental approval and prevents running up huge bills. In the United States, cell phones are restricted to affluent teens and are much more expensive to use than conventional phones, said Joann Schellenbach, spokeswoman for the American Cancer Society.

We are also fatter, less likely to save money and less inclined to be married. We're still glued to the TV, even as we find more time to go online. In the eight years since Americans last installed a new president in the White House, life has changed in ways large and small. There's unprecedented prosperity, crime has dropped dramatically and the Internet offers an explosion of information. But other changes are less encouraging: Obesity is soaring, teen drug use has nearly doubled, "road rage" has become part of the everyday lexicon, violence is proliferating on TV and in movies.
