Though a law suit is still in the frame of completion, students are excited at the prospect of once again having non-curriculum clubs in school. In an official press release, Danny Poelman, Highland High School student body president, expressed his contentment with the decision. "I think it's great. There are going to be so many more opportunities for kids to be involved in school. We're going to start spreading the fact that we have clubs back," commented Poelman. What began as a request by a group of East High School students for a gay-straight alliance turned into several heated debates and even an illegal meeting of the Utah Senate. At that time, the school board voted to ban all clubs not related to the curriculum, in essence then banning groups such as the Polynesian Club down to Students Against Drunk Driving. Now, a new policy will allow students to establish academic clubs sponsored by the school and to create nonacadem-ic clubs that cannot participate in school fund-raisers. On September 5, all school board members, except Cliff Higbee, voted for the new policy after listening to students and residents voice their opinions. A crowd of about 50 cheered once the final verdict was reached. Higbee was again open about his displeasure with the allowance of gay-straight alliances as clubs by saying, "I believe there are some things there is not a compromise for." Students are just happy to have their clubs back. ' , . -- , r' " - - t .

The ability to walk to class, to sit up in bed. or speak clearly with others, are a few things w hich are often taken for granted. A non-profit organization, called Courage Reigns, teaches people how to walk and talk w ith the assistance of horses. The organization provides a therapeutic atmosphere in which people learn to ride horses. "We use horse therapy. We work with all kinds of people w ith disabilities, and w e teach kids how to walk by riding horses," explained Tarn era Coffnun. Program Director and founder of Courage Reigns. "It's an incredible program." The program began two years ago, with the assistance of donated property. Steve McLaughlin gave the property to Coffman after hearing her idea. The space he donated has become a place where miracles are an everv dav occurrence. "The first time she (Jaycee Pyne) came she couldn't sit up by herself," explained Jan Pyne, Jaycee's mother.

By REBECCA COOK ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITER SEATTLE (AP)-The word "rats" has taken on a whole new meaning in this year's presidential race, thanks to a keen-eyed Boeing retiree. Gary Greenup, 64, was watching television when a Republican commercial began touting GOP candidate George W. Bush's plan for prescription drug coverage for seniors. Never a big fan of political ads, Greenup started reading a newspaper. But out of the corner of his eye, he saw a strange word flash across the screen. He watched closely the next time the ad airedboth parties consider Washington a battleground state, so he didn't have to wait longand he saw the word again. He videotaped the ad and slowed it down. Words flash on the screen to echo the announcer's message: "The Gore prescription plan: Bureaucrats decide." But just as the announcer says "bureaucrats decide," the word "RATS," in large, white capital letters, fills the black screen. After showing his tape to some family and friends, Greenup passed it along to the state Democratic Party, which passed it to the Gore campaign, which gave it to The New York Times. The rest is history. Greenup spent Tuesday fielding calls and knocks on his door from reporters who wanted to talk to continued pg. 3 see "Rats" Election Tidbits Register to vote online at rockthevote.com become part of the young ameri-can movement that is trying to make a difference in the United States.

Protesters clash with Australian police By MIKE C0RDER ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITER MELBOURNE, Australia (AP)-Police armed with batons and riot shields charged into protesters on Tuesday to break through blockades that were preventing delegates from entering or leaving a hall where an economic forum was being held. Protest organizers said scores of demonstrators were injured and 22 hospitalized. Police said one officer was taken to a hospital with breathing difficulties. In an early morning raid, hundreds of police surprised demonstrators who had staged an all-night vigil outside the Crown Casino, the venue for the Asia Pacific Economic Summit of business and government leaders in the southern city of Melbourne. Thousands of protesters who oppose the globalization of the world's markets and economies surrounded the complex on Monday, the opening day of the conference, stopping about 200 of the nearly 900 registered delegates from entering. The number of protesters fell overnight and police charged into them Tuesday morning, breaking the cordon long enough for several charter buses carrying conference delegates to speed through. On Tuesday evening, when delegates began to leave the hall in buses, police charged about 150 protesters at one blockage to clear the way for the fleet of buses. The violence came several days before the Summer Olympic Games are to begin in Sydney, another city in southern Australia. Protest organizers accused police of using excessive tactics. Police said the measures were appropriate."What we have over the last few days is not peaceful protest but something verging on riot where we have had ball bearings, marbles, screw s, glass and urine continued pg. 6 See "Protesters"
