Kerry Romesburg discussed Governor Mike Leavitt's higher education budget at the monthly meeting of the UVSC Board of Trustees on i niirsflav " 4.- fc- i-i. L . ... January 14. Romesburg, who emphasized that he didn't want to sound critical of the governor, said Leavitt's current higher education hudpfit, is thp worst he had sp.fn Gov. Mike Leavitt in his ten years at UVSC. The only increase came from the addition of a vocational center in Southern Utah which previously had been on the public education budget. The money allotted to higher education for solving the Y2K problem was pointed out by Romesburg as being a weakness in the budget. After Utah's higher education institutions asked for money to counter the Y2K problem. Leavitt agreed to have his Y2K advisor David Moon to take a closer look, Romesburg said. After taking a look at the recommendation made by higher education, Moon made his own recommendation which was slightly less. Romesburg said Leavitt cut Moon's proposal in half and didn't include any money for software upgrades. "Here's the advocate of the Internet c-univcrsity ana nes not giving to com-p u t e r upgrades," Romesburg said. Paul Sybrowsky, chairman of the board of trustees, said if not enough money and equipment are put towards resolving the Y2K problem the school will be in "utter chaos." He added that it will be too late if the state waits until the year 2000. Also in Leavitt's budget almost $20.6 million dollars are heading towards the construction of a pool and PE. facility at Southern Utah University. Leaviu's alma matter, while nothing is being set aside for a President Romesburg said at UVSC's Board of Trustees meeting on Thursday that the higher education budget Governor Mike Leavitt is proposing is the worst he has in his ten years at the college. SEE BUDGET CONTINUED ON PG. 5 White House lawyers are mounting an aggressive defense of President Clinton. Students comment on Clinton D A N I E I, L 0 W News Report e r In Washington, amid controversy President Clinton's impeachment trial continues. Here at. UVSC both students and faculty have their own opinions about what is happening. . ' The College Times talked to several student and faculty about the impeachment precedings. When asked if he thought the president V- would be removed from office, history and polit- , ical science professor Dennis Farnsworth said, . "No, the reason I don't think he'll be removed from office is the mathematics of removal are different from the mathematics of impeachment. The mathc- matic of impeachment require only a simple majority. The mathematics of removal requires a two-thirds majority, and there is a big difference between a simple majority and a two-thirds majority." Amy Young, a computer science major, felt that Clinton probably wouldn't be removed. She said "it seems most Americans are apathetic and that this has gone on so long that they just don't care, they just want it over." Krista Ashby felt differently though. She felt that he would be removed from office becauce "it's not so much the fact that he committed a sexual crime, but it's the fact that he lied about it, and if he's going to lie in front of a grand jury under oath then he's not going to chink twice about lying about other things in front of anyone." f J ZJ L liJSIDE Life!
