VALLEY WEATHER TODAY: Sunny High 75 Low 40 Friday Sunny High 73 Low 43 Saturday Sunny High 72 Low 40 IT AIL LL 3 Li n a n u wo w r n I l W Lri By Kelsey Haddow OF THE NETXNEWS STAFF More than a month has passed since the September 11th terrorist attacks, and Americans are still glued to the television. Newspapers and news shows are struggling to keep up with the ever-changing developments in the recent anthrax attacks on the United States and military action in the Middle East. As the numbers of those exposed to anthrax rise, many Americans continue to feel unsafe to the point that they now fear the delivery of the mail and what the consequences of opening it might be. So far, anthrax has claimed the life of one man and infected many who worked in the same Florida office building. Last week Tom Brokaw's assistant was exposed to anthrax through a letter mailed to the news anchor, and now a seven-month-old child has also tested positive for anthrax. On Monday, Tom Daschle, Majority Leader of the U.S. Senate, was informed that staff members were exposed to anthrax through a package that was sent to his office. In wake of the recent anthrax exposures, Health and Human Services Secretary Tommy Thompson told reporters he would ask Congress for $1.5 billion to help combat future bioterrorist attacks. Many are claiming that Osama bin Laden is responsible for the recent anthrax attacks. When asked if the anthrax attacks had been linked to bin Laden, President Bush stated "There may be some possible link. We have no hard data yet, but it is clear that Mr. bin Laden is an evil man. I wouldn't put it past him, but we don't have hard evidence." Evonne Olsen, a resident of Provo, also feels that bin Laden may be responsible for the attacks but would not be surprised if others were responsible. "I think bin Laden might be responsible for some of the anthrax attacks, but we have to remember there are a lot of crazy people out there who don't think twice about scaring and hurting others." COURTESY PH0I0 At home, Americans lear the threat of Anthrax. i " "'; i r - r COURTESY PHOTO American soldiers continue to bomb In Afghanistan hoping to put an end to terrorism. On Monday, in Utah, two buildings in Ogden were evacuated when a white, powdery substance was discovered in suspicious envelopes. Three employees were taken to a local hospital where they were treated and released. In both instances the powder was tested and came up negative for anthrax. Governor Leavitt promptly held a press conference and stated, "Let it be clear that the State of Utah will actively pursue, investigate, and prosecute to the fullest extent of the law those who either send illegal or dangerous substances or those who promulgate hoaxes."While Utahns and Americans are fighting back fears that have been made realities in the past month, the United States armed forces are working to strike fear into the leadership of the Taliban and Osama bin Laden. As U.S. forces continue to bomb Afghanistan in hopes of weeding out Osama bin Laden, propaganda leaflets that promote U.S. efforts to aid the Afghan people were also dropped. The military dropped over 400,000 leaflets with a message that was printed in a variety of languages which reads, "The partnership of nations is here to help." The leaflet also shows an American soldier shaking hands with a person of Middle Eastern descent. These leaflets are in response to the television station that the Taliban uses to promote its agenda throughout Afghanistan. The leaflets that are being dropped are designed to encourage Afghans to rise up against the Taliban and the terrorist regimes that they support.UVSC students are in support of the propaganda leaflets. "The leaflets are good because many of the Afghan people have been brainwashed into thinking that Americans are evil and have no respect for human life or the Muslim community," said Sabrina Kelly. "While the propaganda may be viewed as manipulation, it is sending a positive message which may build tolerance towards "War" continued on pg. 3 A gondola will be coming soora to make life easier By STACET BULLOCK OF THE NETXNEWS STAFF A gondola will soon be stretching across 1-15, connecting together the land that is split by the expressway. A gondola, which is an enclosed structure suspended from a cable, used for conveying passengers, will be an optional form of transportation to UVSC from a new housing project that will be completed west of 1-15. The Parkway Crossing project will have the ability to house 6,000 students. The student housing will be constructed in L-shaped buildings. There will be 1,000 housing units arranged on the developer's plans. The Parkway will also have 105,965 square feet of commercial and retail space. In another aspect of the development, the student housing project will provide 160,000 square feet of classroom and office space to UVSC. To cut down on traffic, there will be a grocery store put in one of the retail sites. There will also X:., be a LDS church on location to cut down on traffic. Another way to cut down on traffic will be to a telemarketing firm inside the retail stores, providing job opportunities within walking distance to student residents. The people in the community have had a positive outlook on the housing and retail store project so fa r. Thev are CHAD W.NKS NETXNEWS cven lookjng forward to it. "I will have to check out the new housing when it becomes available. I will compare it to other, student housing in the area. If I like what see, I'd move there", said Paul Mateer, a UVSC freshman. "We will be welcoming the competition warmly because the Remington Apartments staff know that competition is good for the consumer. It gives them choices. We are confident here that the housing project will not affect our occupancv rate. We know that we have a great location for students to live while going to school at UVSC" said Tori, a Remington Apartments employee. In five to seven years, the housing and commercial project will be completed. Excellence in Ethics presented to . . .

"Students are able to debate professors at forum. Usually, it is a professor just lecturing in the classroom." Since professors have a passive role in forum, students have the largest role in forum. David Keller, the Director of Ethnics, said "faculty will learn from the students if they let them talk." People who are not club members are welcome to attend and listen to forum. At forum, you decide your level of participation.Ruth, a Philosophy club member, likes to attend forum and form her opinion on the subject by the information that is provided by others.
