"fai? i Campus police under review An article in the Deseret News sparks inquiries as to whether or not UVSC police is going to be disbanded, but it is said that such is merely specualtion and a misunderstood rumor. BY DANIELLE WHITE OF THE NETXNEWS STAFF UVSC campus police have taken another blow as the battle between them and the student body continues to fester. An article in the Deseret News last week elicted wide-spread concern as they reported UVSC officials were contemplating disbanding the campus police. According to Derek Hall of College Relations and Student Government President Jared Finch, such is not the case. "We're not looking to disband them or take any sort of immediate action," Finch said. "Rather we have formed a committee of adminstrators and student representatives to review the force and look at possible options," he said. This comes just weeks after former campus police chief Lonnie Fisher was removed from his$36,000-per-year post. Fisher is currently under investigation by Utah County Attorney Kay Bryson for "personal conflicts," Hall said. Officer Tracy J. Marriot has been acting in Fisher's place since Feb. 1. Bryson declined to divulge details about the investigation saying it was "against policy." "Somethings were done last week, so we should be able to take some action really soon," Bryson said. "But We can't discuss anything. Not only is it against policy, it is fairly premature to say or try to predict what the results are going to be," he said. Finch said that the timing of the committee review and Fisher's release just happened to be a "coincidence.""It has been suggested that we look at other institutions around the country and review what systems they use that work well," he said. "The timing just happened to coincide." "Vice President of College Relations Brad Cook is Continued pg. 3 see "Police" 0 J. V r . PHOTO IU0STRAII0N Y KEVIN MARLERTHE COLLEGE TIMES Officer J.

Jared Finch, StuCo President says there Is definitely a rift between students and Campus Police. Weight on our shoulders With the added demands of classes and high prices of books comes overloaded backpacks. By MATT EASTIN OF THE NETXNEWS STAFF A lot can be told about a person by what's in their backpack."Sometimes I like to bring frozen burritos, just in case I get hungry." said UVSC's Justin Bird. "I bring my laptop computer so that people think I'm rich and important," said one student wishing to remain anonymous.Overpriced books, gum, calculators, and frozen burritos are just a few of the things that UVSC students have been caught carrying around all day at school. This overload of "stuff" is why backpacks seem to be so necessary and vital. There was a time when it was socially unacceptable to carry a backpack. "Only the nerds had them," Kyle Blaisdell said. However, thanks to helpful trends, backpacks aren't just convenient, they're also popular. Some students such as Devin Taylor, a Hall of Flags regular, bring empty backpacks to school just to be able to blend with the more serious students. "You just have to have a backpack at school. Everybody has one," he said. Backpack shapes, styles, and prices all vary. Some people enjoy the traditional double strapped bag while others use the newer, trendier, one strapped look. "I think it's lame when I see someone using a brand new $200 mountain climbing backpack to carry around notebooks and . ' !'

Jay Porter, company president. By BRITTANY WISCOMBE and DANIELLE WHITE OF THE NETXNEWS STAFF Hundreds of Utahns are reaching out and touching somebody's hand. Meso Development (or Meso Desarollo) is a recently established non-profit company based in Orem that is dedicated to extending volunteer service to Central American countries mainly El Salvador. Meso was organized by a group of individuals who had previously lived in El Salavador many were representatives of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The founders wanted to be able to give back to the people of El Salavador and promote economical and educational progression in the country. Currently Meso Development is organizing service groups to send to El Salvador and aid with the earthquake victims there. They will be concentrating on efforts similar to that of Habitat for Humanity by rebuilding, as the country suffered much damage. Volunteers will also be teaching English, training in career development and providing needed medical attention. "Our mission is to extend Christ-centered service to the people of El Salavador," Jay Porter, company president, said. "We hope to do that by teaching important business and life skills and instilling a vision for improving the quality of life.

Drug use on the rise among Utah youth By JAMES EASTON OF THE NETXNEWS STAFF The evidence is all over the television, radio, Internet, and newspapers, yet people in authority seem to continue to brush aside the simple fact that drug use is rampant in today's schools and the availability of them is far too high. While the government spends enormous sums of money on the war on drugs, it seems to have no effect on schools. A graduate of Cottonwood High School, "Marcus," said that the drug culture was big in his school. If he wanted drugs there was always somebody who could help you out. If he wanted acid, all he would have to do is go down the road at school, and yell "I want some acid!" and there was always someone who would stop and sell him some. "Marcus" also said, depending on the drug, he had certain people whom he could approach to get his drugs. "Marcus" said that the most common drugs at his school were marijuana, acid (LSD), and the occasional "shrooms." "Marcus" also said that among usual drug users the weekly cost was at least $30, and that would buy a little bit of marijuana (around an eighth of an ounce). Even in "Happy Valley," drug use is a prominent problem in schools today. Dan, a graduate from American Fork Crinkle marks keep can from crushing.
