Cifford Senior News Director "Backstab Spending" and "Mad About Broken Promises," student government bills 006 and 007, are the latest action calling for the impeachment of Student Body President Ken Patey. At his impeachment hearing March 5, Patey was retained through a 25-8 council vote. Though Patey at the time said the hearing cleared his name, after the bills were brought up in Thursday's council meeting he said "I will consider resigning." Bill sponsorer Dave Madden said "We voted him back in not because wehad confidence inhim. We voted him back in because he promised to do certain things." According to bill sponsorers, those promises were not kept. Bill 007, sponsored by 19 council members, claims Patey s vows to spend more time in the office, participate in and help with more activities, and adhere to council and constitution rules were not kept. It also states that the 75 percent attendance required at ASUVCC sponsored activities was not adhered to. "At our most generous estimation," the bill states, "we can only account for Ken's attendance at approximately 33 percent of those activities." Bill 006 condemns Patey for donating council funds for charity after the council voted against the spending. "President Patey blatantly ignored this vote," the bill states. Reallocated funds bring new teachers Lynn Nave-Free Staff Writer UVCC's nursing program will receive two new full-time teachers this fall.

V L J Robbl BuCoey Timet Students got a close-up look at this 2.5 ton cargo carier and other heavy duty equipment displayed around the ponds on Orem Campus for Armed Forces Day. Armed Forces Day succeeds in time of military cutbacks Cynthia C. Pulsipher Senior News Editor Heavy duty machinery and high-powered weaponry displays brought the military closer to home for many UVCC students during festivities commemorating Armed Forces Day, Thu., April 2. Approximately 121 UVCC students serve in area units of the Utah National Guard and Reserves. Additionally, there are currently 82 military veterans us ing their G.I. bill benefits to attend college at UVCC. According to the troops representing several Utah County units, recently announced Pentagon cutbacks in Guard and Reserve personnel strength will have little effect on their battalions. "Senator Jake Garn told us that there will still be Special Forces in Utah," said Sgt. Jeff Dunn of the 19th Special Forces Airborne, refering to a speech Garn recently gave before the unit. "We're going to get cut, but thaf s good. It will get rid of a lot of dead wood." Dunn said that of the several proposals currently on the table, the most probable would be for the battalion, which consists of six teams, to be cutback to four teams. Sgt. Michael Mann and Cpl. Michael McCarthy, members of the Marine Corps' C Company, 4th Light Armored Infantry Battalion , located at Toole Army Depot, said See ARMED page 4 UVCC to give honorary doctorates Larry T.

Companies find unlimited options for financial aid Brad Zumbrunnen Staff Writer There are several companies thatprovidestudentswithdetailed information about financial aid for a fee of about $50. KarlChoples, former owner of a local company that provided this service, gives interested students advice on ho w to boost the number of aid possibilities available and how to increase the chances of receiving it. "Information about financial aid and scholarships. can be found in most school libraries, but unless you have the several hours or days of free time, then it is worth the $50 to pay a financial aid information service for an individualized list," said Choples. Most companies will provide a student with a several page list of options thatbest fit his or her needs. The list is compiled from the company's database that contains several hundred thousand types of financial aid opportunities. They match information students provide about themselves on a questionnaire with the best financial aid options available. Choples also mentions that this list does not necessarily contain all of your financial aid options. "Anyone who tells you they are giving you all of your options is lying to you," he said. After initially contacting one of these companies, they will send a questionnaire that must be filled out and returned by a specified date, usually within two or three weeks. When completing the questionnaire, Choples recommends that you include all of the informa tion about yourself that you can think of. "Don't make it look like you lead a generic life, even if you think you do," said Choples. "If you have been interested or involved with Boy Scouting,m or bicycle racing, or whatever you can think of, put it on the list. Anything you include can increase your chances of getting financial aid." After you receive your list of aid options, it is important to apply for every item. "A lot of people go over the list and only apply for the options that seem best to them," said Choples. 'To increase your chances of receiving aid, you must apply for everything on the list." This is also important because if you do not apply for all of the included options, you will probably not be covered under the company's guarantee. Be sure to read the terms of the guarantee carefully and follow all time deadlines that are required. Many companies offer a $100 to $200 savings bond to students who do not receive any financial aid after applying for all aid mentioned on their list, within a specified length of time. Mr. Choples cautions students to watch out for companies that charge high prices. "These services who charge $89 or more are only paying about $6 for the information." ' That is a hefty profit margin. Usually you can find tha same service for a much better price. The companies who charge $39 or $49 are still making a lot of money. "But if you are a busy student, it is usually worth the money to hire one of these companies to do the work for you," said Choples.
