For the last few months, the final color coating on the roof has been peeling off. "The project is guaranteed, so the contractor is still responsible or the repairs," noted Folsom. "The bonding company is now in the process of discussing the problem with the manufacturer to determine who is responsible for the peeling." Folsom noted the roofing material was an asphalt-emulsion with color added. The contractor is Acord-Harris Construction Company. v r " ' i V., - 9 ?w .

May 26, 1978 ? t il by Beverly Taggart Utah Attorney General Robert Hansen said last Wednesday the issue concerning "public" information basically involves the rights of the public to know where their tax dollars are going, versus the right of individual privacy. "That's a touch issue," Hansen stated, "but I'd like to see those professor's legal backing first before acting on the matter." President Joseph L. Bishop stated in last Tuesday's Signpost that some faculty and staff members would sue if their salaries were made public. Bishop is the responsible authority concerning information (public, private, and confidential) at Weber State College. . When asked why all the Utah State Agencies had to comply with "public" information, but not the universities, Hansen said, "Historically, it's been a matter of practice (not releasing salaries) rather than the law." The Attorney General said the Signpost was the first to challenge a university in Utah concerning "public" information. Hansen also told Signpost Managing Editor John Redding that his (Hansen's) remarks were only a reaction to the issue, not a legal opinion. Assistant Attorney General Brinton Burbidge said he would have a decision in a couple of weeks. "I'll have to research the law before I can give an opinion," he said. Brinton Burbidge is the legal counsel for Weber State College. The Signpost submitted a written request last March to the Director of Personnel Stan Greenhalgh, asking for a list of names and salaries of all persons employed at the College. The information has been classified "public" since July, 1977.

|Description||Weber's current student newspaper, the Signpost, first appeared on September 29, 1937. For two years prior to that time, campus news was disseminated via announcements posted on a bulletin board known as the "Signpost". As a result, the masthead of the first issue of the paper itself featured a rudimentary wooden sign with the title spelled out in rustic-looking letters. Over the years the paper has been published continuously, though the look, size and style has changed several times.|
