Headaches, nausea and orneriness is the tone for those who work in the Old SAC the past three weeks. The building was plagued by "sewer and mold" smells throughout the past decades. Until recently the smells were not as bad. Three weeks ago, the smell seemed to permerate in the afternoons and evenings and the students and faculty were reporting headaches and nausea symptoms. Some had to leave because the smell made them sick.

Officials from the College of Eastern Utah and Price City, librarians from both institutions and a writer from The Eagle newspaper recently took a trip to Salt Lake City to tour the new Salt Lake public library to get ideas to further their look into building a library which would house materials from various facilities in a joint library. According to the Sun Advocate, this idea of a "super library", a public and an academic library joining, is not new.

Campus police are looking for a suspect or suspects who keyed or used a sharp instrument to carve obscenities into the hoods of these two-late-model vehicles parked in the Aaron Jones Parking Complex. Police estimate the time of the damage was sustained after 11 p.m. on October 13 (Monday) when most students and faculty were home on Fall Break. One of the students whose truck was damaged is unable to pay for the repairs because his deductible is more than the cost of replacing the hood. Thus he is forced to drive his vehicle with the obscenity clearly displayed.

The gun policy on Utah's campuses has been a hot debate recently. The reason for this is that Utah has ordered places like offices, hospitals, parks and college campuses to let people who have concealed-weapons permits carry guns in these places. Utah has 42,000 concealed-weapons permit holders. This may not seem out of the ordinary until you realize that the total Utah population is only about 2.1 million people in the state of Utah.
