Utai Governor s debate hed 'n the lVSC ballroom, candidates voiced their opinions ByJARED W. BUCKLEY OF THE NETXNEWS STAFF With election day less than three weeks away, the three main candidates for governor gathered in the UVSC Ballroom Wednesday for the second-to-last scheduled gubernatorial debate. The event drew a large crowd of students, professors and voters. Nearly every seat in the room was occupied, numerous people were left standing, and the back curtain was opened to allow people in the cafeteria a chance to view their candidates. The event also drew a few protestors. As the protestors had not given UVSC prior notice of their presence, they were not allowed in the ballroom. They stayed in the cafeteria, however, raising signs stating things such as: "Governor Leavitt Murdered My Family." The protestors were exclaiming grievance over what they say was an illegal transportation of quarantined fish from the Leavitt fish hatchery in Wayne County. According to the protestors, the transportation led to an outbreak of Whirling Disease, which causes a fish's spine to curl up until it dies, throughout the waters of Utah. What particularly set the debate apart from any other gubernatorial debates, however, is that ASUVSC had invited a third party candidate. Jeremy Friedbuam, the gubernatorial candidate from the Independent Party of America, had been excluded from all previous debates plus the last debate, hosted by KSL on Thursday, the 19th. Due to time restraints, the candidates were each given one minute to pose an opening statement. And they were individually given one minute to answer each question asked by the moderator, the President of UVSC, Kerry Romesburg. There was no time for rebuttal. The questions ranged from tuition increase to the sale of alcohol at the Olympic venues. In his opening statement, Bill Orton said that there has been no commitment to education from Governor Leavitt and that he would make education his top priority. Governor Leavitt opened by stating: "This t VA v i i! .-- Li ... ,,. ... i ! i; I; , U - 1 0 'V i '1 tl X.

The 20th day of fighting pushed the death toll past 100. Shooting broke out before President Clinton announced the truce at a summit in Sharm el-Sheik, Egypt, and it raged on afterward. Israelis and Palestinians expressed skepticism that the accord would take hold, and the militant Islamic group Hamas said it was not bound by the deal. "We will continue fighting," declared Hamas leader Sheik Ahmed Yassin, expressing a view many Palestinians appeared to share. Israel, however, said it would wait to see if the unrest eased in the hours after the agreement was reached in Egypt by Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak and Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat. "I hope that from (Tuesday) evening we will see the scope of the violence decrease," said Danny Yatom, security adviser to Barak. An Israeli official traveling with Barak said the two sides had also reached a secret security deal, a claim the Palestinians denied. The CIA, which has been involved in monitoring security arrangements, would help implement the agreement, the official said, speaking on condition of continued pg. 3 see "Battles" YipYap Did you know, a lump of pure gold the size of a matchbox can be flattened into a sheet the size of a tennis court!

Matchbox Twenty ignites Events Center By CLARKE CALDWELL OF THE NETXNEWS STAFF OREM, UT The Mad Season tour starring Matchbox Twenty and Shelby Lynne illuminated the McKay Events Center at UVSC Saturday night to a near sold-out crowd. Matchbox Twenty, who released their second album this year, treated the audience to music from their newest album, entitled Mad Season as well as their first, Yourself or Someone Like You. They began with their hit single "Bent," and played favorites like "3 a.m.," "Long Day," "Girl Like That," and their latest, "If You're Gone." During the show, lead-singer Rob Thomas, impressed with the liveliness of the audience, changed the line-up of their songs with a rendition of Tom Petty and the I Ieartbrcaker's song "American Girl." Thomas and lead-guitarist Kyle Cook returned for an enchore rendering of Cyndi Lauper's "Time After Time" before the band delighted the crowd with "Push," their first hit. They thanked the Orem crowd and promised to return to Utah on their next tour.
