College Candicc Butcher, Devinc, Todd Horsley Staff Writer After a brief hiatus, The College Timer,, UVCC's official student newspaper, is back with a vengeance. February, 3, the Publications Board, which is composed of school faculty and administration as well as individuals who are not attached to the school, but have dealt with journalism extensively, decided to halt production of the paper. Dr. Wayne Kearny, vice president of student affairs, stated that the halt was mainly due to a significant lack of quality. According to an article in the Deseret News, Kearny was reported as saying, "The pictures are cropped unevenly. They accidently use two kinds of type in the same story. There are lots of spelling errors, dropped words and layout problems. Anyone can have a bad day, but the problems have lasted four weeks. The paper is going downhill on roller skates," said Kearny, "it WT Utah Valley Community Colleee "iat..ii-, Ci vveeiuy aiuueiu iNewspaper doesn't serve the student body to put out a rag like this." The board and students agreed that the newspaper had its share of problems with the loss of two editors, lack of training programs, and a high student turn-over, but Tom Hover, director of student services felt that the paper's quality did not reflect what college students were capable of. The board decided that the newspaper would cease production for a period of two weeks and resume on February 22. During the two week period, Darcy Butcher, advisor to the paper, was directed to set up training seminars for the staff while a new editor, production editor, and layout editor would be sought. Seminars included generating and finding stories and organizing news beats which was conducted by Linda Walton, who is a ooard member and is the owner of her own PR firm. Another was conducted by Kaylene Nelson, city editor for the Daily Herald and board J i xt member, on how to prepare a layout and improving the quality of layout. Staff and board members were also invited to a dinner at UVCC where lectures on salesmanship, team work, and unity on a newspaper were given by Tom Hover, Kaylene Nelson, and Troy Moiling. Since that time, the board has chosen a new editor for the paper, Richard Elton. "I know the paper has had its problems, but that's all past history as far as I'm concerned. We've got excellent personnel to work with as well as receiving some quality instruction from Butcher and other board members. I'm looking forward to having a good time, giving the students what they want and doing my best. There's a new sheriff in town." The paper's staff and advisor are equally enthusiastic for the return of the paper with hopes that the quality will meet not only the boards standards, but their own as well. n rrt.-HI Student Center to Expand Richard Elton Editor-in-Chief Not all dreams become a reality, but the dream of having a student center large enough to accommodate the growing population of the school may soon be a reality. Proposals for the new student center have been unveiled and await a few final go aheads. The three million dollar, thirty thousand square foot plan was presented with two priorities. The first priority includes a new theater with dressing rooms, step-down lounge, TV and listening room, and student offices. The second stage includes a health center, and bowling alley. When asked where the school was getting the money to complete the construction, Jimmy Woods, student body president said, "We are getting it from the student fees. Two years ago the student fees were raised three dollars to help the school (at a future date) get a bond so that they can expand the student center. There is nothing tangible that the students have to show for the raise in their fees, so it only makes sense to put it into the student center." Authors Speak Richard Todd Guest Writer Two nationally prominent scholars will be on UVCC campus on Feb. 23 and 24 to meet with Humanities Faculty and UVCC students. They will speak to the studentbody on Friday at 9 a.m. in the Ballroom. Dr. Thelma Altschuler and Dr. Richard Janaro, are the authors of the award winning book and video series The Art of Being Human. Their speech will center around the topic of "Ethics and Humanity." Following the speech the authors will informally talk to ' WE'RE BACK! 1 yy via i I For those who wonder why the school is spending just over three million on a student center when the school is unable to meet the demand placed on it by morning general education students, Jimmy said, "It's the student's money, and only over my dead body is anyone else going to get it." "I know that we have a problem with class room shortages," President Woods continued, "but that is where the state has to step in and foot the bill and not the students." The construction i s tentatively scheduled to begin in the fall of 1990 and completed in 1991, but first the school must get the architect to draw up the final plans while those who are in charge organize the perspectives. The perspectives will then be submitted to different financial institutions for bidding. Presently, $37 of each student's schools fees go directly to payment for the existing student center and the activities center. This bond will be paid by the onset of the year 2009 to Zion's Bank, the lien-holder. Dr. Doug Warner, Director of Budgets said that not enough information was available to give an approximate payment schedule for the new bound. at UVCC Forum interested members of the community, studentbody, faculty and administration. The public is invited to the speech and informal question and answer session. National Endowment for the Humanities is sponsoring the scholars as part of a grant that was awarded to UVCC in I987. The grant is designed to strengthen humanities faculty and students. The community is also invited to participate. The humanities faculty will meet with Altschuler and Janaro in formal workshops on Thursday and Friday afternoons.
