Basketball players arrested Jeff Myera Staff Writer Two UVCC Wolverine men's basketball players were arrested Saturday evening in connection with brandishing a weapon, firing it and threatening others near, the University Mall. Keith Dickerson and Gamett Petteway were arrested at their Orem apartment, along with an acquaintance, Kari Coates. All three were charged with brandishing a firearm, and were cited and released. According to Orem Detective Gerald Nielsen, the three suspects were browsing at the University Mall when another mall patron inadvertantly bumped into one of them. The suspects then pursued the person and his friend to the parking lot, attempting to pick a fight. The suspects then got into Coates' vehicle, a red Honda Prelude, and moments later drove up to the two male's vehicle. One of the suspects aimed a small handgun at them, made threats, and drove off. A few minutes later, the suspect drove past an Orem fire department at 1000 S. 300 East and fired three shots into the air. Fire fighters witnessed theincidentand called Orem Police. Then, in the area of 110 S. Orem Blvd, the suspects fired three more shots into the air. An area resident witnessed this and called 911. Empty bullet casings were later recovered in the street. The license plate number of Coates' vehicle was reported, and police were able to locate her residence. However, all three of the suspects were arrested a few hours after the incident at Dickerson's and Pertewas residence at 1757 S. Village Lane in Orem. The three were issued misdemeaner citations and released. According toNielsen, the suspects were cooperative with police. The Jennings 380 automatic pistol was recovered.

Six years ago the Utah State Board of Regents mandated that UVCC student's tuition be raised to match that of SLCC. Gradual tuition increases have made that mandate reality but now UVCC students are paying more! "The difference," explained ASUVCC Student Body President Paul VonStrahl, "is that both colleges pay equal tuition and generally the same amount of student fee. If s just that SLCC has integrated their course fees into their tuition; we haven't That means UVCC students pay more after their tuition was raised to so we would pay the same." It is something that VonStrahl wants to change starting with gathering student signatures. His goal is4,000 signatures. Von Strahl will take those signatures and a proposal to integrate course fees with tuition, giving UVCC students an equity they don't currently have. VonStrahl says, "Its such a logical, sensible and straightforward proposal, i f s hard to see ho w the Board of Regents could say no. " "Too many students don't seem to understand where their money goes," said VonStrahl. "I know that once students become more See STUDENT FEES, Page 3 UVCC four-year hinges on new name change David J. Madden Editor in Chief The State Legislature approved the funding for the UVCC four-year plan, but the acceptance of the degrees by the accreditation committee hinges on a name and mission statement change. The Legislature put the $500,000 needed for the expansion in the state budget and also appropriated another $750,000 for University Centers, as asked by the regents. The accreditation committee, however sent a letter to the regents outlining some other concerns.First, a community college can't offer four-year degrees, so UVCC would need a name change before the degrees could be accepted. Second, the mission statement of the college must include wording providing for four-year degrees, thus UVCC will need a change in their mission statement to allow for such degrees. The library was also a concern, and UVCC will need upgrading. The committee also asked for specific degree and admittance requirements for the new degrees. UVCC president Kerry Romesburg,commented that a name change and a mission change are currently being worked on and should come before the regents in May. Library upgrades are also scheduled for this spring. The regents had originally stated that there would not be a name change or a mission change for at least three years, but Romes-burg is confident that they will reconsider. " I think that they real See FOUR-YEAR, Page 3 Mixed party candidates fill student positions ill TobinHill Senior News Editor The elections this year had an historical result. It was the first time that the newly electedStu-dent Body Executice officers belonged to three different parties. The winners of the elections for Student Body President, Academic Vice President, and Activities Vice President are respective ly: Stephen Hatch, Party Max; Lisa Mendiola, Party "Y;" and Larry Valdez, Party Solo. All of the newly- elected officers feel that even though they were from different parties, they are ready to act for the good of the students. Mendiola said, "We are read y to work together and be one." Hatch commented, "I think right now we'll just have to regroup to become united on certain views. I think we will do just as well as if we were all in the same party." Valdez said that the results were a healthy surprise. "When I was campaigning, all I'd hear is, 'Your'e an independent; you don't have a chance. But, now that I'm elected, with two other party members I can only see good things happening." All the elected officers seem to have the same goal to achieve confidence in the student body, and unity. "We want the student body to come and talk to us about any problems or issues they may have, and feel that we are on the same level," said Mendiola. Hatch also replied, "We plan on getting lots of support from the students, and by doing so, it in turn makes the school's image better.
