He will have a real challenge with this program because he must wait until the women's volleyball season comes to a close for some of his potential players to join the squad. This may mean a short period of time to prepare for their opening game as a team. He also mentioned he had no chance to recruit for this years squad because of the lateness of his appointment.

Officials are hoping that his selection will bring success to the women's program in years to come. Salem By Brian C. Nutter The law of physics teach us that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. From the actions of heavy flooding this past Spring and last week's earthquake in West Valley come the reactions of 'sink holes' that have begun to cause concern in Salem. Salem is currently experien Provo Seeks Safe Building Ordinance Provo is looking for ways to sink their teeth into an ordinance that restricts building in hazardous areas that are likely to be flooded or be hit by landslides or earthquakes. City officials have asked International Engineers of San Francisco to update a 1977 study of geologic problem areas like the city's steep hillside areas. Land Use subcommittee members plan to use results of a $25,000 geologic study to draft a new ordinance to replace one that regulates subdivisions. The new law would regulate individual building sights. The city recognizes that beefing up zoning regulations will increase building costs, said Neil Lindberg, of Provo's community development department. Tougher regulations also create enforcement problems and they raise questions about whether the city is liable if something happens to a building they approved. When development staff members reviewed issues with council members, they noted that Utah Governor Scott ! i j f " Tom Perkins was Eeacfis cing a small problem with sink holes. Sink holes are literally holes where the earth has just sunken into itself. A number of these holes have been encountered in the area surrounding the Salem Park. Ranging in size from about 6 to 10 feet across these holes are estimated to be about 150 feet deep. Not all the holes are visible Local News Line Matheson is for reviewing ordinances governing building areas that may be geologically unsafe. Chet Waggener, Provo's chief administrator, said he expects a firm proposal from engineers this week. A consultant will be hired to coordinate city work with the out of town firm. When the 1977 Hillside study was completed, no major problems resulted from building on the eastern mountain benches. Good fortune is attributed to development taking place in areas of "moderate hillside conditions," the study concluded. In the dozen years since the study was completed, however, building has progressed up the hillside where conditions are more precarious. The problems of hillside development were brought into sharp perspective last spring during the flooding, resulting in thousands of dollars in damages. To make future hillside building safe, thousands more might have to be spent on preventive measures like flood control and storm water projects. named the now women's basketball to StakMles above ground as some are on the bottom of the Park's pond. These underwater holes are creating a doming effect that is causing large deposits of silt to be forced through the water. It is anticipated that the pond may require dredging but no other ill effects are expected. The three major holes have closed the entrance road to the Orem "Off" Orem City had put itself on the map by the growth of it's population until recently that is. The Utah Department of Transportation neglected to include Orem on the front side of the newly published Utah State Road Map. Angered by the deletion, the Orem Chamber of Commerce will send an official letter to William Hurley, Director of UDOT, asking that a new map be printed including Orem and all Utah cities on the maps front side. A draft of the letter says, "Our board voted to recommend a recall and reprint of the map to include all Utah cities and towns. We realize this would be a major expenditure, but the loss of many businesses and industries due to an inaccurate or misleading map could cost the state much more in lost revenue from the additional jobs and taxes". UDOT officials said Orem and several other cities are not on the front side of the map in order to make it easier to see the roads. These cities are shown on the back side of the map. Connie Barker, Director of the Orem Chamber of Com coach. Photo by Mike Cais Park, caused landscape damage to an open grassed field and have sent a small retaining wall to take the plunge. No private property is in danger nor are any major structures belonging to the city. City officials are presently attempting to correct the problems and do not forsee any major complications at this time. The Map merce said, "We feel the map isn't being printed for the most productive use. It shouldn't be for getting people from one end of the state to the other, it should be to help people around the state". The main worry of city representatives and the Orem Chamber is that prospective businesses seeking new locations will not be aware that Orem exists. According to Barker, Chamber representatives have talked with consulting firms about marketing analysis. Companies rely on state maps for much of their marketing research. "They're just not going to turn the map over. There are professional organizations who analyze the maps. The state should make it easy for prospective companies to see what's listed here," said Barker. Tourism is also listed in the letter as a major reason for reprinting the map. The Utah Travel Council and the travel regions were created to encourage tourism and make Utah a destination point rather than a "pass through" state, it says. The letter will be finalized and approved then sent on to Hurley.
