A5 &iI6 Rocky Anderson explores the voice of conscience in war ; JACK WATERS Editor-in-chief Former Salt Lake City Mayor and human rights advocate Rocky Anderson delivered last Wednesday's keynote at the annual Martin Luther King Jr. Commemoration.Introduced lightheart-edly as a "nutcake advocate for human and civil rights," Anderson immediately gave regard to Martin Luther King, Jr, asking the audience to "recall not only his tremendous contributions, but also his courageous stance agarhst the Vietnam War." Anderson then shifted into his prepared keynote address, entitled "Voices of conscience in time of war." He began by lulling the audience with seven words, which he would then repeat multiple times throughout his address, "A time comes when silence is betrayal." The former mayor described the silence as "a betrayal to our lfr A I l . o . - , Rocky Anderson, former mayor science in time of war. consciousness, to our nation and our progeny. It's a betrayal to our brothers and sisters." Anderson, known for his open opposition to the Bush administration's foreign policies, reserved a significant portion of his remarks in critique of the Trent Bates UVU Review of Salt Lake City, speaks to UVU about the voice of con- war in Iraq, using the critique as a springboard for his overall message. He would refer to the Vietnam and Iraq wars as being similar wars of unjust aggression.In a challenge to the audience, Anderson encouraged the recognition of responsibility to dissent when necessary. He asked them to "rise up against wrong-doing, otherwise it shows support by becoming complacent and complied in the very act." Anderson went on concerning the obligation we have as human beings to become, "moral actors full of integrity and courage, and then acting on that impulse." The crowd filled the auditorium in the digital learning center for Anderson's keynote, and remained attentive and cordial, a rare instance for the former mayor when he speaks to large groups in Utah. Usually an outburst or two is expected in opposition to Anderson's statements, but the presentation went on without scathe. Anderson closed his remarks, "How great will it be if we can look back at our years and say that we didn't leave it for others, but we took a stand and fought in the service of what is right. Let us never be silent. We should raise our voices in accord to our informed awareness of what is right and wrong. Nothing in the world can be more important than that." Outdoor Adventure Center: Winter sports rentals and more L AMIE WELLS Asst. News editor No need to leave campus to plan an adventure. The Outdoor Adventure Center (OAC) located on the first level of the Sorens-en Student Center provides outdoor equipment rentals and maintenance, adventure trips, and a variety of outdoor clinics and activities.Winter sports rentals include snowboards, snow-shoes, cross country skis and avalanche awareness gear, "We offer outdoor : equipment and an affordable rate," said Kim Reynolds, director of OAC. "Our equipment is very up do date and we keep it in very good condition" The OAC also offers an assortment of monthly activities. Among the upcoming events for January are night boarding at Brighton Resort on Jan. 21, a free cross-country ski and snowshoe demonstration in American Fork Canyon on Jan. 24 and a heli-skiing tour scheduled for Jan. 31. In addition to the many services and rentals they have to offer, each February the OAC sponsors the widely popular Banff Mountain Film Festival to stop by campus as it travels throughout the U.S. on its annual world tour. The film festival will take place on Feb. 10 and 11 in the Ragan Theatre with different films showing each night. Tickets are $9 each or $ 1 6 for both nights. One of the most popular services that the OAC has to offer is Adventure Trips which are available through every season and range from day trips to multi-day trips to places such as Catalina Island, Baja, and Havasupai, not to mention local destinations as well. . "We don't make money off our trips," said Reynolds. "If you decided to go through a commercial outfitter you would end up paying between $600 and $800 for a trip that would cost around $200 through us." Reynolds said that they have a few trips planned for spring break which include a Science Excursion to Death Valley where students can earn up to one sci-. ence credit, a backpacking excursion, and a sea kayaking trip to Lake Powell. During the fall and spring semesters, the OAC is open Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. and is closed Saturdays and Sundays.

KIRA TERRY News writer Budget cuts are everywhere and" are affecting everything and everyone, even UVU's athletics but the students are keeping them afloat through increased attendance and student fees. Many sources and contributions go into funding the athletics department including: base funding, fundraising, private donations and corporate sponsorships. However, UVU students may find it interesting that it is they who contribute the largest amount to fund the athletic programs. Such news may make students think twice about declining an invitation to attend a basketball or volleyball game, a wrestling meet, or a soccer match in the future. "The largest amount of money we have comes through the student fees that each student pays, which is about $123 per year, which goes to athletics," said Mike Jacobsen, director of athletics. Each athletic team uses the money for different things to fund their seasons. As far as distribution of money for the teams goes, it is distributed evenly for men's and women's sports. "With the travel we just fund the travel that they're required to do," Jacobsen said. "So one year it might be more for the women than it is for the men depending on where they're going, but we fund all our programs pretty muchidentically." See ATHLETICS A3 . ...
