Petition for street closures JOSHUA SMITH " News writer Orem residents living around UVU have been prompted to submit a petition that would block certain intersections around the school due to escalating traffic problems. As the school continues to grow, the amount of cars follows suit. Many students drive to school and as a result there is a build up of traffic in certain residential areas. While this may seem like a minor inconvenience to those driving, residents that live near the school have more than just the backed up traffic to deal with. Lynda Seckletstewa has lived in her home next to UVU for about 20 years and said that there has been a problem with traffic for at least 15 of those years. Campus sex crimes an undeniable reality ! JlouiuM LvtiK.tniii " Campus editor Sex crimes are more prevalent on campus than students may realize. The trouble is that many victims are so distressed by their experience that they would rather disassociate themselves from it, move on with their lives and not report the crime. This is, of course, a valid reaction, but the problem lies in that the offender continues to offend, which creates more victims. A reported sex crime could potentially save another person from being emotionally or physically violated. While "sex crime" is a general term encompassing a multitude of sex-related crimes, students are susceptible to everything from voyeurism to rape, because there have been reports of every variety. Most recently, there have been reports of indecent exposure, classified as a lewdness crime, in a campus building. While the witnesses to these offenses reported them, they were naturally traumatized by the experience. "A major concern with All artists and participants will be donating their time. Tickets for students presenting a school ID will be $10, and 100 percent of proceeds will go toward funding the scholarship. "Themes in Literature, Heavy Metal" will be offered during spring semester and will be held on Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 2-2:50 p.m. "Too many cars fail to yield and obey traffic rules when going through these streets," she said. But the ' biggest problem Seek- : letstewa has faced is the students parking. "Student's aren't paying the heavy-duty taxes that would give them the right to park here," Seckletstewa said. While there are signs to warn students not to park in these residential areas, Seckletstewa said she has-still had to deal with cars crowding around her house and the surrounding streets.' Other residents feeling the same have put in a petition to the city of Orem to close off certain intersections to students. Paul Goodrich, a transportation engineer for Orem has been assigned to See PETITION A5 anyone who commits a crime of this type is what they are going to do next? Are they going to physically assault someone? Rape them? It is a serious issue for us," said Police Sergeant Justin Sprague. Offenders have been reported for exposing themselves in buildings, in the parking lot, on the bus - no location is exempt from this crime, although perpetrators generally engage in these behaviors in unpopulated areas. "For a while we had an individual who would ask females for directions in the parking lot, and when they walked over to his car he would have himself exposed," Sprague said. "Most of the victims would freak out and run away, but the last one ridiculed his size and wrote down his license plate number. When we arrested him in front of his wife and child, we found out that he was a repeat offender and had been doing this over at BYU and other locations." Since 2005, a total of nine incidents of lewdness have been reported See CRIMES A6 ; i, ,J K ' !Mll- -1 - .
