Orem mayoral candidates face off Lara Gifford Staff Writer Stella Welsh and Joyce Johnson, Orem's mayoral canidates, discussed their veiws on issues facing the city in a debate held in the UVCC ballroom Fri, Oct 25. Among the issues discussed were Orem's Re-development Act (RDA), housing, UVCC becoming a 4-year institution, traffic problems, and recycling. TheRDAgivesbusinessestaxbreaks for coming into a community, usually in an under developed area. Many businesses that have recently moved to Orem such as RC Willey and Wallmart were enticed by the incentives offered to them through the RDA. On this issue Welsh said, "If they are used the way they were meant for, I don't have too much of a problem with them. However, I am adamantly opposed to giving tax breaks to big business," according to Johnson, "In this era business expects government to be partners with them. Thereare a lot of big businesses out there who will not come to a city unless they are offered incentives," she said. "If we make this a beautiful city we won't have to pay businesses to come in, they will beg to come in," countered Welsh. ' - ' ' ' ....IIHUUl'." .JL. '.J I'".' I . . . .,.,. Joyce Johnson Stella Welsh Both candidates admit housing is a problem. Johnson believes we need to adjust zoning. Welsh says there is no place currently in Orem to put houses. Both would like to see UVCC as a four year school. Johnson said she has spoken to Kerry Romesburg about going to the Board of Regents to obtain land on the other sid e of the freeway to expand. Welsh said she is ready to deal with the traffic, parking and housing problems created by an expansion. She would like to see students cut down on driving to school, and would support a bus pass program with UTA. " On the issue of recycling, Welsh said that Orem lacked a large enough population to recycle. We have no place to recycle plastics and it's very difficult to recycle glass. We could provide a place for lawn clippings or branches. The best way we can help the enviomment is to consume less," she said. Johnson said, "We do have places to recycle antifreeze, oil, aluminum, and newspaper. People care about the environment, but it will be a long time before our economy is ready for a full recycling center." Johnson also said another problem with recycling is get ting companies to use recycled material.With a rapidly growing population, a major concern to Orem is traffic. Johnson's solutions include widening Center Street from 400 East to University, widening 800 West, and widening 800 North, which, Johnson admits, will mean having homes on one side of the street come down. Welsh agrees that some roads will have to be widened, but also says, "We're going to have to start driving less and taking the bus." This election is the first time in Orem's history that two female canidates have run against each other for mayor. Johnson, acting mayor, is the first woman tobe mayor of Orem and Welsh was the first woman elected to the city council. Rick Swope Staff Writer Three speakers from the Utah state prison came to UVCC last Tue to take part in Red Ribbon Week. Tammy Hart, a drug and alcohol therapist at the prison, and two inmates, Larry Carter and "Ned" were the speakers. According to Hart 90 of the 2,500 inmates at the prison are in for drug and alcohol related crimes. Being incarcerated hasn't controlled their problem, however. "In prison drugs cost 10 times what they cost on the street, but people still get the money for them," said Carter. Hart said, "there isaheavydrug problem in the prison, and we are cracking down by using a drug lab to test urine samples." She went on to talk about the ways our country is making a dent in the drug problem. "Due to drug and alcohol education there has been a drop in the use of drugs by teenagers, and marijuana use is down 50 in 5 years. There is a real push for drug and alcohol education," she said. Carter, is serving 0-5 years in the state prison for distributing cocaine. "I started smoking weed at the age of 13 or 14...I sold See PRISON, page 4 DRUG ABUSE AND YOUTH: Two related stories discuss levels of addiction and new programs for drug prevention.

On Fri in the Hall of Flags cans of food for Community Action,an organization that provides food to the homeless and poor, will be accepted by those who wish to donate. There will also be a scavenger hunt for food, a forum featuring Barry Fillmore, who is associated with Community Action, a dance with the institute where admission will be a can of food and a dollar, and other related activities. "We chose this service activity because there is always a need for food for the poor," said Mark Driggs, chair of the food drive. "Community Action will make sure the food is used. They go out and find families that need the items." Community Action's warehouse is in need of canned items,but "ramen" noodles, rice, Jello, dried milk, macaroni, and candy are also accepted.
