A coalition comprised of individuals in and around Utah County protested outside the AT&T headquarters in Salt Lake City Nov. 10.' They claim that the company distributes pornography through local via the world wide web and television broadcasts. "I received some unsolicited 'Current Resident' mail from AT&T Broadband. I am sure this mailing list went out to many communities in Utah," said Jacques du Plessis. "And right from the AT&T page you can link up to the Spice Channel's porn Web site-thanks AT&T," he said. The fight against the sale and promotion of sexu ally explicit material in Utah first made headlines when video-store chain owner Larry W. Peterson was charged and faced the prospect of serving jail time and filing bankruptcy. While Peterson was found not guilty, it was discovered that the majority of residents were getting adult shows through cable, namely AT&T. "It is appalling that a telephone company would support this sort of thing," said Jennifer Sneedon of Salt Lake City who participated in Fridays protest. "AT&T claims to provide 'family friendly' service to the public, but to make sure, they are making money airing pornography," she said. AT&T customer service representative Jerome Cohen said that "Unfortunately we have adult cable. It comes from foreign distribtuors. "Cohen said the company is required to "allow people to air whatever they want." "We don't like it.' It causes problems. It hurts, and we don't need the business," said Cohen. "But how do you stop something like this in America?" He also mentioned that AT&T is the biggest company in the country with over 1,200 in six states that enrolls approximately 100,000 new customers daily. The department of customer complaints at the AT&T headquarters in Salt Lake remain steadfast in defending themselves. "We don't support those types of materials," said Courtney Mosley. "That is not a true statement, that we support it," he said. Sneedon disagrees. "They may not advocate pornography, but they are not oppositional toward it," she said. "They are basically ammoral toward an immoral thing." Although AT&T declined to report revenue figures, a report by Showtime Event Television indicated that adult pay-per-view programming grossed andestimated $367-miIlion last year. "It is the abuse of our children.... that we as Utahns will have to pay for," the coalition said. "AT&T will not be responsible for the results. ..now is the time to make them accountable to communities they serve." Stony Olsen, a Law student at BYU, added that AT&T is bound by legal zoning technicalities. "AT&T is actually required to air it," Olsen said. "It is the only cable service ,in Utah. It has been zoned. There are zoning laws. Riverwoods has been zoned by Provo City to sell adult materials," he said. "While Provo has most definitely tried to fight it, they have to adhere to rules and regulations."For more information visit www.stopattporn.com or call AT&T1-800-697-4021. International students, employees trudge through ignorance at UVSC Many are tired of disrespect and alienation By DEREK M. BROWN OF THE NETXNEWS They are everywhere on campus and throughout the valley. They hold the jobs on campus no one else wants because they are socially unacceptable. You walk past them and they walk past you in the halls. You observe them curiously in the dining areas and in class as they migrate together. They are Japanese, Russian, Chinese, Mongolian, Russian, Brazilian, and so on. These students are of the masses at UVSC each semester. These are the foreign exchange and transferred students who travel from distant lands to broaden their horizons in Utah Valley. Last week, following a live performance held in the Reagan Theater, one of the foreign employees of the UVSC cleaning services, was ignored upon a request and disrespected by a group of young men.

Bush camp turns to legal action to prevent another recount By DAVID ESP0 OF THE ASSOCIATED PRESS George W. Bush's campaign went to federal court in Florida on Saturday, determined to block Democratic requests for hand recounts of votes of portions of the state that holds the key to the 2000 presidential election. Former Secretary of State James A. Baker III said the Republicans had acted "to preserve the integrity and the consistency and the equality and finality" of Tuesday's close vote between the Texas governor and Vice President Al Gore. Within moments of Baker's announcement in Tallahassee, Gore's spokesman , Chris Lehane, accused the GOP presidential candidate of trying "to use every legal means available, including lawyers and court injunctions, to block the speedy and accurate count of Florida votes. We are confident that Americans will reject Mr. Bush's arrogant stance and will demand a full fair and accurate counting of Florida's votes." The stakes couldn't have been higher. The winner of Florida's 25 electoral votes stands to take the oath of office on Jan. 20, 2001 as the nation's 43rd president. An unofficial tally by The Associated Press of the recount in Florida's 67 counties showed the Texas governor with a 327-vote lead over the vice president in the state whose 25 electoral votes will determine the next president. State officials said their recount showed Bush leading by continued on page 3 see "Recount" Net Spot 'THE HOTTEST SPOTS IN: NewrPoCtta youtii0t2000.org'n5wv' -J-IScom -oin.oinLLPOIJTiGmin.ciira -netxnews.netnews -msnbc.comsew5default.asp Entertainment: -playersanonymous.org -ew.com -cinecon.com Music Online: -emusic.com liquidaudio.com -MP3.com ' Student heps: -rnakingcollegecount.com :-ekcom -fasrweb.com -firetalk.com -lycos.com Sports: -UYsceduathletia -nflfans.com -nhl.com -nfltalk.com -espn.go.com -nba.com ; - -I320kfan.com Service: -unitedwayuc.org -voluiitetfunitedwaytic.org i-uwceduldssa s " Olympic spirit already thriving By SOPHIA WILSON OF THE NETXNEWS SALT LAKE CITY As two ice hockey teams skate onto the ice, two Olympic volunteers cheered their support to their "home team." Interpreters Shapolov, of Russia, and Katherina Holzhauser, of Czech Republic, say they are thrilled to volunteer for the practice games. "I signed up the first day, over the internet." said Holzhauser. Both signed up on-line and are working with the Language Services. Victoria Cobler, also of the Language Services, said, "the Language Services usually has around 225 people interpreting and about 90 of those are native speakers with residence in the US." Shapolov was born in St. Petersburg, Russia and has been living in Salt Lake City for four-years. He is currently attending the University of Utah. "This is a great chance and I'm happy to be here," he said. Holzhauser has lived in the United States for over 30-years. She moved to Salt Lake a year ago from Seattle, WA. "This is a great opportunity and yet so many think 'oh, it's (the games) are so far away' and they miss out," Holzhanser ' ' said. "They need to get involved and see how everything is done... and meet all the great people," she said. , The practice games provides an opportunity for all to be involved with the Olympic venues. Cobler said, "We do inter preting for 3 (hockey) teams. Usually the Swedish know so much english, they don't need a translator, but the Finland, Russian and Czechoslovakian teams we have interpreter for."

By SOPHIA WILSON OF THE NETXNEWS 'Tute for Tots fundraising has started at the LDS Institute and will last until Dec 2, 2000. The money raised goes towards families without enough to provide a Christmas for themselves. The Institute is asking for donations, as well as providing an "Eatery" Through Decemer 3, where students donate food, treats, and drinks. Then all the food is placed in the North and South foyers where one can purchase what they want; however, there is no set price. They ask that you give what you feel you can or what you feel it is worth. "If a penny is all you feel you can honestly give, that's all we are asking for." said Brother Kauffman, a teacher at the LDS institute. Besides these EFY surplus items will be on sale. This year they also had a t-shirt company donate t-shirts that are on sale now in the south foyer. All though November students will be collecting canned foods, making quilts to donate, and planning individual or group service projects. November 18 is set continued on page 6 see "Institute"
