Down but not out Bush speaks to America UVSC student fairs well in recent elections By DANIELLE WWTE OF THE NETXNEWS STAFF Oh, sweet "V.I.C.T.O.R.Y!" How delicious the taste and chameleon its forms. Justin Thompson, a second-year UVSC student, vied for a seat on the Orem City Council Nov. 6, along with five other candidates. His resume rang similarly to that of hisopponents-platforms encompassing less taxpayer burdens and alleviating traffic congestion and active participation on various political committees.Despite such, he still managed to stand distinctive among the seemingly homogenous crowd. In fact, he clocked in 2,700 votes (which accounted for an estimated 17 percent of the ballots casted) which ranked him fourth place. Perhaps, that is a victory in of itself. "He was running against people who had experience under their belt. They were older, and more established, and he still grabbed over 2,000 votes. I'd Justin Thompson, a UVSC Orem City Council. say that is quite an accomplishment," Chad Lowell, a fellow UVSC student, said. "That took guts to run." A :'baby" among the big whigs ... He is 22. Yet Thompson assured his youth was not an indication of immatu- j rity or in competency. "Society says our generation doesn't do anything, but when we do they say 'Oh, no you can't.' That just isn't true. We can do it, and we are doing it. We can all serve," he said. Forefront upon his mind, still, is UVSC growth. He plans to remain actively involved with the issues especially those that stem from V such-mainly city con- ndr GrtenHelXHewi gestion Wltn trattlC student recently ran tor and Iimited h,ousinS-UVSC, according to Thompson, will likely double in population within the decade (currently there are an estimated 24,000 UVSC students). Such demographics need immediate attention and long-term planning to accommodate. "UVSC is really as important to Orem as students think it is, and the community appreciates UVSC," he said.

General Assembly, Osama bin Laden's latest message to the world has provoked profound new security concerns for the United Nations and its global work force. How to respond to bin Laden's perceived threats is far from clear. In his message, he singled out not only the United Nations, but various world leaders -either implicitly or by name, as was the case with President Vladimir Putin of Russia. Analysts say that his oratory is further proof of his shrewdness in assessing the mood of both the West and the Muslim world, and his ability to take advantage of both. In the videotaped message broadcast last weekend by the Arab language television network Al Jazeera, bin Laden said, "The United Nations is noth ing but a tool of crime," and he called Secretary General Kofi Annan a "criminal." Bin Laden then listed a series of conflicts in which he charged that the United Nations was siding with the "crusader" interests of the West and against Muslims. As the accused mastermind of the worst terrorist attack on the United States, bin Laden contin ues to cast himself as a populist holy warrior who has not only eluded the military campaign thus far but has also kept an open channel to his followers by smuggling videotapes that reach a restive Muslim population around the world. President Bush called on Americans to defy acts of terror by strengthening their communities, comforting their neighbors and remaining vigilant in the face of further threats. In a prime-time address Thursday, he assured the nation that the United States would ultimately prevail in its war against terrorism. Still, he conceded that the gov ernment does not know who is behind theanthrax-by-mail attacks and said the war abroad is only just beginning.The "great national challenge," he said, is to turn fear into action by mentoring a child, participating in a neighborhood Crime Watch or eeumenmort volunteering at a Bush once again speaks to Americans and gives them hope and direction, hospital. "One way to defeat terrorism is to show the world the true values of America," he told an enthusiastic crowd of 5,000, who interrupted him with applause more than 25 times in his 32-minute speech.

With America at war, and the recent events of September 11th, many people will sit back, this veterans day and think of the many men and women who fought, and many times gave up their lives, their health and sometimes their sanity in the name of freedom. On June 4, 1926, the United States Congress recognized November 11th as a national holiday to commemorate the events of November 11, 1918 in which "the most destructive, sanguinary, and far reaching war in human annals and the resumption by the people of the United States of peaceful relations with other nations" occurred. Congress also deemed that the nation celebrate this day every year by displaying flags, and praying for peace throughout the world. In May of 1938 this national holiday was officially named Armistice Day, to honor the veterans of World War I. In 1954 after World War II and the Korean War congress fell it necessary to rename the holiday "Veterans Day" so lli.it all those that fought and may fiht in (lie future would be recognied and never forgotten. To officially proclaim this holiday President Dwight D. Eisenhower issued this address: "In order to insure proper and widespread observance of this anniversary, all veterans, all veterans' organizations, and the entire citizenry will wish to join bands in the common purpose. Toward this end, I am designating the Administrator oh Veterans' Affairs as Chairman of a Veterans Day National Committee, which shall include such Committee in every way possible." Since that time Veterans Day has been celebrated f X r X1 si! . ' ' 1 J 1 ;V AK - - - i ,A , v' Daniel HulUilzer Veterans Day Is will be celebrated Monday November 12. The nation will remember those who (ought lor our freedom. across the country by holding parades and special ceremonies to honor these brave men and women. The only war that many students at UVSC can remember is when America fought during the Persian Gulf War, and many were still to young to other persons as the Chairman may select, and which will coordinate at the national level necessary planning for the observance. I am also requesting the heads of all departments and agencies of the iixccutii'c branch of the Covet nmeut to assist the National realize what was going on. Now with American at war with those countries harboring terrorists a new appreciation has been born for those that have fought in the past and those that are fighting now. President Bush, and the U.S. congress have recently dedicated the entire week, November 11 - 17 as National Veteran's Awareness week. In Bush's Veterans Day address, he stated, "I ask all schools to observe November 11 through November 17, 2001, as National Veterans Awareness Week, and to invite a veteran to speak at their school. This "Lessons in Liberty" initiative will serve to honor America's veterans, while reminding young people of the strong principles upon which our Nation is founded." Kelly Haux a student at UVSC and currently a member of the National Guard stated that, "To me Veterans Day has always been a special day, even before September 11th. I have had family in past wars and since I have become a veteran. It has always disappointed me that it has never been recognized appropriately." To participate in Veterans Day activities students can check their local papers. Spanish Fork is also holding Veterans Day activities at 4 pin at the Senior Citizen's Center, 167 W Center St. More information regarding Veterans Day and the history behind it can also be accessed at w w w. v a . go v v e t s d a y .
