BY Havalaii Giioldston E X K C U T I V K N K W S EDITOR UVSC students and teachers may soon have a new science and information complex to call their own. Slated for the land east of the present library complex, the Information Sciences Building is being planned as the newest addition lo the Utah Valley campus. Plans for the science building are being considered in lieu of a Student Center expansion this year for several reasons, the biggest being that the circumstances surrounding the science building are a lot more attractive and convenient for the time being. The most persuasive aspect of the science building is that it is on the priority list of the Stale Building Board. This will mean total expense coverage from the state and next position on the list for completion. Another factor is that in order to continue adding large parts lo the UVSC campus, the facility that controls the heal and air distribution in the buildings on campus , known as the heat plant, must also be expanded. This would be a million dollar project swallowed by the slate if it was built with the Information Sciences building. But even plans for ihis could hit a wall, according to Ryan Thomas, vice president for student services and campus computing at UVSC. "It's all incredibly political," said Thomas of the state process of selection. The stale has selected $25 million as the number mi m allocated lo state participation in this year's building of higher education facilities. But the science building is only one of three buildings planned by the state for the year. "Ours is second behind a RE. building at Soulhern Utah University and a new University of Utah Building. The only problem here is that our building alone could cost something like $24 million," said Thomas. In other words, the state could build just the UVSC building, or ihe SUU and the U of U building, but not all three, and nothing in combination with UVSC's. "But some people are also having problems with just building the UVSC struclure because UVSC has another building that is like sixth on the priority list." said Thomas. "This would mean two state-funded buildings within two years at UVSC, and the politics with thai are difficult." f - ,-: : y .. .-Am . .... v.

WASHINGTON (AP) President Clinton's lawyers have prepared a new, point-by-point rebuttal to Kenneth Starr's report, trying to answer a case that has already gone to the jury of the American people. The prosecutor's report lays out a tale of sex regarding Monica Lewinsky so lurid that several lawmakers called it disgusting. The White House argued that a sexual affair is not enough to end a presidency. Bui there are allega tions of a cover-up as well.
