"(L s involved; however, in the search for finding another contributer and help us have the groundbreaking ready to go by June," he said. Brinton originally pledged the money in August 1999 saying he did it for the love of the game. "There just wasn't enough money to do the project," Brinton said. "We'd like to build the field. I think it fills a great need in the commu nity," he said. President Kerry D. Romesburg and Jacobsen both said that the said the demur was amicable and that they anticipate working with Brinton in the future. "It was as mutual agreement that the baseball field was not functional for us or him at this time," Jacobsen said.

Bush refuses to apologize WASHINGTON (AP) President-elect George W. Bush will not apologize to the former Russian prime minister for alleging that he pocketed international aid, a spokesman said Friday. "The president-elect made his statement. He's a plainspoken man and we consider the matter to be dealt with. He has said what he thinks, "said press secretary Ari Fleischer. Fleischer was responding to a report by the Russian news agency Toss, in which a counselor to former Prime Minister Viktor Chernomyrdin said representatives for the two politicians have been negotiating some sort of Bush statement of regret. Bush claimed during UVSC not second-rate By 0VILLA WILSON OF THE NETXNEWS STAFF The new trend in MBA schools is to require students to complete a semester working somewhere abroad, but you don't have to attend Harvard to intern with an international business. ; Former UVSC student, TJ Fund was fured by a management consultant firm based in Germany, with offices in Paris, after completing an internship with the company. Fund credits his success to his experience in the German and International Business programs here and his work on student council. He began his education with the intention to transfer to BYU, but because of his positive experience, Fund decided to stay. "I came here with the intention of going over and transferring to BYU, but coming and seeing all of the faculty getting really involved with the students I was really impressed. The faculty was supportive and then I got involved with student council. My experience here was really great," Fund said. Fund graduated from UVSC in April of 1999 with a degree in Internationalbusi-ncs-. Siiuv then In. has been working in Paris, first as an intern then as a full time employee. Other students who wish to major in international business, Fund says, should take at least one foreign language, macro and micro economics, and take a job tutoring. As a tutor you can have a flexible schedule, and it reinforces your basic knowledge. "People are very impressed when they v - x y MATT BR0WN.TKE COLLEGE TIMES hear than I'm American and I speak French and German because they have the idea, and rightly so, that Americans don't speak other languages," Fund said. "It costs really nothing to apply and the benefits are great international internships," said German professor Ruediger Lcnhart. "Internation.il internships are key to e.et;.;iu a iut.il n.li. Working with ih-international professors is key to success and not just after school or in your senior year," Lcnhart said. I enhart reported that last year several UVSC students were honored for achieving national excellence on language and international business tests. "Those tests are extrordinarily difficult and they excelled compctitivclv," he said. " Ihev are the best of the best nationally."

And such appears to be the case with the Centurion, a newly released independent student newspaper. UVSC students Aaron Shinkle, Jon Mayne, Dori Grange and David Ray have collaborated to create the publication, in which they dub as "a paper dedicated to overcoming social and political ignorance." After distributing their product last Thursday through College Times news boxes, varying reactions have circulated the around the campus. "F'very student has a right to voice their opinions and we student government) encourage students to form opinions," said Bob Rasmusscn, director of student life and leadership. "They might have considered the ramfications of some of their aricles but It will be interesting to see how far it goes. Ve tend to see things like this surface every few years" he said. Centurion Fditor-in-chief Aaron Shinkle initiated the project in hopes to "expose the unrelenting bureaucratic stranglehold forced upon the students on UVSC campus." He reports that his staff is dedicated to addressing a call to arms and combat extreme liberalism that has allegedly hindered students' intellectual growth. "We, a student group of svriters, unanimously proclaim that student's opinions, positions, concerns ansd rights have, at times, been ignored or even sacrificed on behalf of educational diversity," said Jon Mayne, associate editor. "We are prepared for this war! May this be a warning to all faculty members and student organizations that indoctrinate.. ..may this be a battle cry or a trumpet sounding the charge of the conservative revolution," he said.
