At least 35 are dead, more than 700 injured. By ROB BEARD OF THE NETXNEWS STAFF Violence consumed the Middle East throughout the weekend, as Palestinians and Israelis continue to fight in the bloodiest conflict the region has seen since 1996. At least thirty- five are dead, twenty-seven of them Palestinians. More than 700 have been injured. Fighting began Thursday when Likud Party chairman Ariel Sharon made a visit to the Temple Mount, to prove that Israelis still have control of the sacred area. Sharon's visit provoked Palestinians to take up arms against Israeli soldiers, in an attempt to prove that the sacred site would not be given up to Jewish rule. The rioters threw rocks at Israeli soldiers, who responded by firing tear gas and rubber bullets into the crowd. Snipers also fired live rounds at the Palestinians, who were no match for the well-armed Israeli troops. Palestinians were encouraged by Palestinian television, which has been airing footage of teenagers hurling stones and firebombs during the intifada, an uprising against Israel in the late 1980's. Palestinian radio broadcast war tunes, not heard for many years. One such song asks "Where are the millions, where are the Arabs?" and inspires feelings among Palestinians much like "Battle Hymn of the Republic" did for Union soldiers in the Civil War. Yassar Arafat, leader of the Palestinians, ordered all Palestinian schools to be shut down so students could mourn for the dead. Instead, the students spilled into the streets of Gaza and the West Bank, rioting and attacking Israeli police. The heavy-handed response of Israeli troops has brought much criticism, and is the reason why the violence continues, claim Palestinian leaders. The United States warned that the violence would continue 10 spread, and... has advised American citizens to avoid the area. Richard Boucher, spokesman for the State Department, publicly denounced Sharon's visit to the Temple Mount, saying the visit "created tensions." He also condoned the violence that has occurred since. Palestinian and Jewish leaders blame each other for the violence. Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak threatened to send in tanks and more troops if it were necessary to "protect the citizens of Israel." Arafat issued a statement of his own Monday, claiming that the Israelis are to blame. "Stop shooting our soldiers, our old people, our youths, our women," he said. "Get Israeli soldiers out of Palestinian cities and refugee camps." The violence continues with no end in sight. Despite recent advances, the peace process has hopelessly stalled. The words of Bassem Nairn, a Palestinian activist, echo sentiments felt throughout the area, "The battle of Jiiusdii.ni has begun. ' 4 - - ... 1 4 $ m , m,. yA-mmMm 4- - 4 .... , -.

Polls swing bade, forth on whim of By WILL LESTER ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITER WASHINGTON (AP) First George W. Bush ruled the polls. Then Al Gore appeared to be gaining momentum. Now Bush appears to be making up lost ground. This year's presidential contest seesaws based on the whims of a relatively small group of loosely committed swing voters. Democratic pollster Celinda Lake said it's typical for polls to change this late in the campaign. "What makes it different is that the race is so close, the shift puts somebody different in the lead." Pollsters say it's hard to tell who the likely voters are at this point because many of them don't know themselves. And the group swinging the race back and forth includes many late deciders, including independents, women and busy parents in working-class families. "This is a moving target," said Andrew Kohut, director of the Pew Research Center. "Just the same as who people say they might vote for. That's why you have to keep taking surveys." Everyone these days, from pollsters to the political parties, is trying to figure out who voters support and which ones will turn their candidate preference into a vote on Nov. 7. "Politics is not the most important thing in their lives right now," said Laurie Moskowitz, who runs the Democratic Party's state field election efforts. "These are parents, people who are likely to be working two jobs." continued pg.3 see "Polls' Net Spot 'THE HOTTEST SPOTS IN: NewxPol'rtks r5.fs.ted.irsTireAeam5.cofn youthvote200fl.orgnews cnn.commPOUTICSI msn.com mty.comnavintrochoose orloose msnbc.comnewsdefaulLasp 'Entertainment: utahvalleymall.com music.uiah.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 Promoting mental health awareness By DANIELLE WHITE OF THE NETXNEWS STAFF UTAH COUNTY In continual effors to issues into the state legislatures stream of consciousness, the National Alliance for the Mentally III in Utah (NAMI) is devoting this week to promoting mental health awareness. A non-profit organization dedicated to support and advocacy for families and friends of people severe neurobio-logical disorders such as schizophrenia, ADHD, bipolar disorder (manic depression), and obsessive-complusive disorder (OCD), NAMI-Utah is one of 1,200 state and local affiliates in the US. "It is important for people to share their experiences and give that strength to others," said Ann Lickey, president of the Utah County affiliate and the project director for the associate dean of student services at UVSC. "Truly these people (with mental illness) are the most empathetic, compassionate, loving people who just have some barriers."In addition to providing support and education, NAMI lobbies for governmental assistance and attention. NAMI public relations say that the public mental health system is in a crisis."Persons with mental illness have been neglected in the State of Utah," said Carol Lee, member of NAMI. "Stigma and ignorance are a piece of the problem but the lack of sufficient service is a greater problem," she said. Paul Williams for Vista Care Hospice agrees. "We're trying to normalize it," Williams said. "Even back in the time of Buddha, there were studies on chronic bio-brain chemistry disorders." Williams continued, "Living with mental illness is a loss.

There are less than 500 days until the games put Salt Lake City in the lime light, and both Anderson and Romney have spent the last month in Sydney preparing. After attending Sydney's medals venue both Anderson and Romney have decided alcohol does not belong there. The decision has nothing to do with the LDS church, which owns the building where the awards will be given, according to Anderson. The medals plaza will attract a lot of kids, said Romney, It would be inappropriate to promote or sell beer or any other alcohol in the vicinity, he said. "Alcohol and caffeine are something Mormons should avoid, but that is not something I would seek to impose on anyone else," Romney told The Salt Lake Tribune, which quoted him in a copyright story. "This is not related to the Mormon church but an appropriate concern for the youth generally." Although it has nothing to do with the LDS church's stance on Alcohol, Romney said, Church officials agree with the desci- contlnued pg. 3 see "Alcohol" '.'MlMllVtV', in I- .i.. l-Hid IIUND0N MORRISTHE C0LIE6E TIMES With less than 500 days until the 2002 Olympic games, a debate rages over where alcohol will be served.
