A perilous combination of record breaking weather and six fires have exhausted local resources calling for additional aide. Breaking out Last iian in I'rovo Canyon and now stretching in Wallsburg. Cottonwood, Iron Mine Lake, Castle Rock, Oak Hill and Nebo, over 400 firefighters from California, Missouri, Oregon, Minnesota, Arizona and Wisconsin, including local firefighting teams, have been using Canyon View Junior High in Oreni as base to coordinate efforts to contain the fires at least one of which was diliberate- ly started by an unidentified suspect that is- currentlv under investigation. Provo residents encountered the initial threat of the Last Vivian fire in the early mot tling hours ol July 30 when smoke blanketed the city with a thick, blinding overlay. "This fire will not be put out because of the unpredicatbility of the weather and the fact the resources we have to work with are quite low," said Char lie Johnson from the California Santa Barbara team who is stationed at the Interagencv Inicident Command Post at Canyon View. "We had that lire almost contained until a gust ol w ind came from several thunderstorms Wednesday rekindled it and caused it to spread". As of Aug. 2, the Last Vivian Lire had burned an estimated 1 ,6S0 acres and is expected to burn at least 2,500 acres, posing immi nent danger to the neighboring community of Sundance. "The Sundance is in trouble," said Johnson. "If the Vivian fire comes in contact with hot embers, or the wind pushes it dow n the hill, it has a high probability of jumping the fire lines firefighters have made and even hopping the highway. II it does that there won't be anymore Sundance," he said. According to the Public Relations division of Watsatch Public Forests, Robert Redford, w ho owns Sundance, has been notified, and that due to recent temperature drops, have encouraged him to be comfortable w ith the status of the community.

The event celebrates the best of LDS music and is sponsored by the Faith Centered Music Association (FCMA). Women dominated the evening, with three artists win ning a combined eight awards three in major categories. Violinist Jenny Oaks Baker received three Pearl awards, including Best Instrumental Album, Best Sacred Recording, and Instrumentalist of the year. Hilary Weeks took trophies for Best Inspirational Album, Female Vocalist of the Year, and Songwriter of the Year. Julie de Azevedo won two awards, for Best Contemporary Album and Best Inspirational Song (Mercy's Arms, which de Azevedo wrote and was recorded by Gladys Knight). The biggest surprise of the evening was not what happened, but what didn't happen: Lex de Azevedo (Julie's father) received the most nominations this year, including Producer of the Year and two nominations in the same category, but failed to w in a single award. Former Utah Jazz player Thurl Bailey scored points with his singing career by nabbing tw o Pearls, one for Best Contemporary Song, and New Artist of the Year. The Pearl Awards, unlike many other award show s, has the feel of a family reunion. Many artists are friends with each other, and don't feel that the Pearl Awards are a competition. "It's just icing on the cake if you actually win an award," said Julie de Azevedo. "I'm just as excited if someone else wins." Scientists find nine new planets Swiss and U.S. teams say discoveries further prove possibilty of life outside our solar system BY JILL LAWLESS ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITER LONDON (AP) Scientists trying to connect the dots that make up the universe filled in key pieces of the puzzle Monday, announcing the discovery of nine new planets that orbit stars outside our solar system.Scientists say the discoveries provide further evidence that the Earth and its neighbors may not be as special as we like to think, boosting the potential for life elsewhere in the universe. One of the so-called exo-planets is known to be the second planet orbiting a single star. It was only the second time astronomers have found more than one planet orbiting a star outside our own solar system. "The findings suggest that it's quite common to have planets around other stars, so our solar system is not as unique as we might think," said Jim O'Donnell, a spokesman for the International Astronomical Union. "That makes the possibility of life in the universe more likely." Three teams of researchers from Switzerland and the United States presented evidence of 10 discoveries at an International Astronomical Union conference in the northern English city of Manchester. Two of the discoveries turned out to be the same planet. Scientists from Switzerland's Geneva Observatory told the meeting about the discovery of six new planets, including one that is the second orbiting a star. The star is known as HD 83443, slightly smaller than our sun and some 141 light years from Earth. A light year is the distance light will travel in a year in a vacuum, about 6 trillion miles. continued pg. 11 see "planets" Net Spot 'THE HOTTEST SPOTS IN: NewxPol'itics rS.fs.fed.usli reAeam5.com youthvoteJOOO.or'news cnncomALLPOUTICS msn.com mtv.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.eduatheltics majorleaguebaseball.com nflfans.com nfltalk.com espn.go.com nba.com wnba.com I320kfan.com Gore "Bush-whacked By 0VILLA WILSON OF THE NETXNEWS STAFF With mil-- lions watching, George W. Bush delivered the most important speech of his campaign trail his official accep tance of the presidential nomination. Polls immediately following his oration boosted Bush's approval rating by 11 percent (no more than expected), putting him well ahead of Gore... for the time being. Bush's acceptance speech was given Friday, August 4 at approximately 8:00 p.m. It lasted 52 minutes 14 longer than the anticipated 38. With the possible exception of the October debates, this is the most watched and most important speech of the year. Bush has been practicing his speech since May, but perhaps the most effective, persuasive agent used was his selection of prelude speakers. George P. Bush, the candidate's nephew who recently appeared on People Magazines "Top 10 most eligible bachelors" enticed youth and Americans of mixed ethnic backgrounds, especially Latinos. "I'm an American, but like many, I come from a diverse background," he said. "I'm really proud of that." The young Bush, who is a teacher in Florida, also solicited the votes of parents and many specifically involved in the educational system. "The best hope for every kid is to continued pg. 5 see "Bush" YipYap This just in, eh! j Alaska has the longest border with Canada of all the fifty states.

According to Atoa, he was very encouraged with the way his team competed and feels his team has made improvements. "I think the Brazil trip helped us quite a bit," said Atoa. "It helped us get together earlier before the season. We were able to accomplish a lot. I was very encouraged by improvements made by our sophomores and by our freshmen coming in." continued pg. 11 see "Sao Paulo" rir? .A' V V JARED FINCKUVSC STUDENT ASSOCIATION Former UVSC Student Body President Baron Rohbock supervises as coach Sam Atoa (squating) helps athletes during service project.
