UTAH VALLEY STATE COLLEGE n '1 wm EL BUEN PANO EN EL ARCA SE VENDE MONDAY, AUGUST 04 2003 VOLUME 32 ISSUE 36 By Erin McPherson t'lpwsSla . On August 7th and 8th, the Foundation for Apologetic Information and Research (FAIR) will be hosting a conference at Utah Valley State College. This is their fifth annual conference. FAIR is an organization committed to defending the LDS church and its teachings. The conference will be a sort of "Anti Anti-Mor- monism". On the FAIR website (www.fairlds.org), a disclaimer states that the organization is not affiliated or controlled by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Lance Starr, Media Relations Manager for FAIR says, "While we are not affiliated with the Church, we consider ourselves faithful members of the church. We believe in its doctrines and teachings and it is those doctrines and teachings we try to defend". The conference itself will include speakers such as Brant Gardner and Craig Foster who will address "Monotheism, Messiah and Mormon's Book" as well as "The Unchanging Ways of Anti-Mormons". After each presentation there is a question and answer session in which audience members can participate. Each audience member is permitted to ask one question per speaker (limited only to be able to accommodate all of the questions possible). There is also a luncheon every day during the conference. During the luncheon, guests can eat with the presenters and speak with them freely if they wish. During an interview with the Media Relations Manager, the question was asked, "What sources are being used that differ FAIR from the LDS church?" Lance Starr answered that the "question is difficult because the "FAIR" continued on pg. 3 m ;V.;I i I Sports Gett n to know Coach Nixon Coach Nixon answers tough questions.

Although a tentative truce was called Thursday, the competition between UVSC and Beat the Bookstore has been anything but friendly. On Tuesday, July 29, Beat the Bookstore owners, David Monk and Mike Winward, filed a motion in 4th District Court with Dr. Douglas Warner, hoping to obtain a temporary restraining order, which would require UVSC to provide the complete book - i ... ... ... ... - The shelves at Beat the Bookstore are mostly empty because the didn't receive a booklist until Thursday. list for fall classes. The lawsuit alleges that UVSC bookstore is in violation of Utah law, particularly GRAMA, (government records access management act). The act states that public entities holding public records need to supply those records when asked. "Unless BTB immediately receives the requested records.. .there is a substantial likelihood that BTB will be put out of business 1 and UVSC students will be deprived of an alterna-f tive, less-costly source to purchase textbooks," the motion said. GRAMA outlines what public information can legally be withheld from the public.

Family Literacy Centers, Inc. aims to help families and individuals develop the literacy skills they need to thrive in society. Volunteers contribute to the success of the program by serving as tutors, working one-on-one with a student. Denece Kitto, Education Liaison and Director of Centers says it is the commitment and attitude of the volunteers that makes a difference in the lives of the students. "Volunteers are the heart of the program," said Kitto. Tutoring is carried out in peer situations, and tutors and students are paired according to schedule and availability. Tutoring sessions typically last one hour, and tutors are asked to serve twice a week, for a minimum of three to six months. Family Literacy Centers are located throughout Utah County, in nearly every city. For the volunteer with more time to offer, qualified leaders in the community can assist by directing a facility. Family Literacy Centers encourage volunteers of all ages to use their skills to become involved, whether it be tutoring, assisting in the office or advertising for the centers. Jobless rate dips; 470,000 stop searches By Jeannine Aversa koiiali'd Press The nation's unemployment rate declined to 6.2 percent in July and nearly half a million discouraged Americans stopped looking for a job. Payrolls were cut for the sixth month in a row, suggesting businesses remain cautious and want to keep work forces lean despite budding signs of an economic revival. The Labor Department's report Friday painted a picture of a job market that remains stubbornly sluggish and continues to frustrate people looking for work. The economy lost 44,000 jobs in July. While that's an improvement from the 72,000 shed in June, economists were hoping that positions would actually be added. They were forecasting payrolls to go up by around 10,000. "The job market is going to be the last thing in the economy that improves," said Mark Zandi, chief economist at Economy.com. "Businesses have to feel the recovery is going to stick around for a while before they expand hiring." On Wall Street, the Dow Jones industrials lost 74 points and the Nasdaq was off 17 in morning trading. The jobless rate dipped to a two-month low of 6.2 percent from a nine-year high of 6.4 percent in June. The civilian workforce dropped by 556,000 during the month, contributing to the decline in the unemployment rate. Some 470,000 discouraged people abandoned job searches because they believed no jobs were available.
