Brinton, the UVSC baseball team will receive a brand new, state-of-the-art baseball field. The 25,000 seat baseball field, which will cost UVSC approximately $1.5 million, was originally expected to be completed by the beginning of the 2000-2001 season. But according to Mike Jacobsen, UVSC Athletic Director, who has been coordinating plans for the new stadium, construction on the new field will begin in the Spring of 2001. "There was just not enough money to do the project," said Jacobsen. Fund raising by the athletic department for the remaining $200,000 is still in effect and it is expected that it will be donated in time for the beginning of the construction. Because of the vast planning and approvals required to complete such a large project, final designs and budgets are still undetermined, but will be approved soon. As part of the deal between UVSC and Brinton, the North Star Construction company, which is owned by Brinton, hopes to be able to build the new complex and "believes" that UVSC has permitted his company to do so. "We'd like to build the field," commented Brinton. Aside from the 2,500 capacity seating, the new stadium will be equipped with locker rooms, a team clubhouse, concessions, a press box area, a VIP reception area, coach's offices, laundry and storage facilities, and a professional lighting system. In honor of Brinton and his efforts to fund the stadium, the field will be named the Gary R. Brinton Field. "I think UVSC fills a great need in the com munity," said Brinton. "When they presented me with the proposal of donating money to build the field, I was very impressed with Mike Jacobsen and UVSC President Kerry Romesburg. Basically I thought UVSC is going somewhere. In the next 20 years UVSC will have the largest population in the state," said Brinton. The stadium's location will be adjacent to the parking lots near 1-15. Jacobsen has confirmed that the Helena Brewers, of the Pacific Coast League, has shown interest and asked questions regarding use of the field, as the team is reportedly considering a relocation to Utah Valley. It would be on a temporary basis until a permanent field is built. "It's a great opportunity, not only for our college but for our community," said Jacobsen. "I see the stadium as an icon for the community and as one of the premier junior college baseball facilities." r ''MV&SMMr.s. ..j, sfs,- ' .y, . iv-Wt&i tuvivsjtiw ''-;.,wWS".,.. . " a i- p ,i . !

Minorities dubbed as scapegoats in crime By AMBER VOORKEES OF THE NETXNEWS STAFF When it comes to ethnic minorities, many juvenile delinquents feel that they have been targeted. University of Utah professor Russell Van Vleet conducted a study, released Wednesday, to determine whether or not minorities are specifically targeted by police. His findings indicated that African American juveniles were arrested 41.08 more times than Caucasians. The odds for other ethnic minorities were similar: Asians and Pacific Islanders 10.69, Native Americans 9.3, and Hispanics were 8.93 times more likely to be arrested than whites. Reportedly, of those studied juvenile arrests in Salt Lake, Ogden, and Provo, the odds for black youths of being arrested were 32.58 times greater, Native Americans 12 times greater, Asians and Pacific Islanders 10 times greater, and Hispanics 9.68 times greater compared to Caucasians. Various officers claim that Utah's racial demograpics are the cause of minority descrepancy.

The software maker reportedly will cut its work force by eliminating the jobs of 900 people, approximately 400 to 450 in Utah. The company announced Aug. 16 that net income in the most recent quarter was $S.6 million, down from $49.3 million in the same quarter of 1999. Revenues fell almost $57 million over the last year, and CEO Eric Schmidt announced that operating expenses would be cut to align them with lower revenues. Earlier in the week, industry analysts had predicted that the layoff would be more widespread, including predictions that the company would be forced to layoff as much as a third of its work force. The job cuts affect UVSC students who expected a tuition reimbursement from Novell at the end of the semester. Many of these students are now left to wonder w here that money will come from. Utah Valley State College is working on a plan to help displaced workers, headed up by Ian Wilson, dean of the UVSC business school. Many Novell workers will be available for immediate employment, while others will likely re-enter local colleges for further training, including UVSC. In addition to the job cuts, Novell announced that it will write off other assets, and plans on taking a pre tax restructuring charge of between $40 million and $50 million. These actions are intended to reduce Novell's quarterly costs by continued pg.3 see "Novell" Net Spot THE HOTTEST SPOTS IN: NewsPolitics r5.fs.fed.uv1ireAearn5.com youtfrvote2000.orj'nW am.comiALLPOUTICSI msn.com mrv.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 Howell to Hatch-Warm up the bus By ROB BEARD OF THE NETNEWS STAFF Debates are not just for presidential candidates; at least not according to the Scott Howell campaign. Howell, the Democratic nominee for the US senate, is calling on current senator Orrin Hatch to embrace the type of campaign Hatch advocated last winter, while vying for the Republican presidential nomination. In a letter sent to Senator Hatch's office on Wednesday, Howell made reference to a letter Hatch sent to the George W. Bush campaign on Dec. 3, 1999. In that letter, Hatch proposed that all the presidential candidates, "campaign together.. .from town to town, without our handlers, and in 3 open format."According to Hatch, politic' candidates rely too heavily on tlcjridvisors and spin doctors, resulting 't scripted debates, and heavily tilted frums. Hatch complained that this kiit f campaigning is not "particularly "lightening for the voters." he Howell campaign has called on itch to participate in debates at the dt Lake Rotary Club, the Utah ledical Association, and the Utah -eauguc of cities and towns. Hatch has Jeen unable to arrange his schedule to accomadate these events, prompting Howell to suggest an alternative approach to this year's campaign. Howell's statement on Wednesday includes a proposal for the two campaigns to hit the road together, from town to town, in communities from continued pg. 11 see "Howell" YipYap 'More than 20 million meteroids enter Earth's every day.
