Inside Campus Update P3- 2 Signature P9- 5 White beats Purple pg. 11 Rock concert draws crowd by Bob Parrinello It was a warm, sunny Saturday afternoon at Weber State as thousands of people turned out for the grand finale of Sunfest, the outdoor concert portion-Solar Rock '82. Shortly after 12, the first of seven bands started setting up while crowds began arriving for what was to be one of the biggest outdoor musical events in Ogden this year. An estimated 12,000 people were on hand throughout the day, taking part in the sunshine, free rock music, and a variety of other activities. Although beer and alcohol were readily visible, the atmosphere remained festive. The crowd seemed to prefer the sounds of Stryder and Mannequin, two of the bands involved in the event. Frisbees were flying throughout the day and into the night. Some people even took a dip in the duck pond to cool off. KWCR supplied the filler music, while the bands were setting up for the next act. KSL featured the fireworks display on the 10 o'clock news. The fireworks lasted about 5 minutes arid were accompanied with music performed by Mannequin. Tood Boothe, newly elected Cult iral Vice President and co-coordinator of Sunfest, said, "This has been the best Sunfest in 4 years." Boothe contributes the success to the College Activities Board (CAB) members and their dedication towards the event, along with good publicity. "This is proof that CAB is working with and for the students," said Boothe. Although the crowd was a mix between college students and non-college participants, Sunfest was an overwhelming success, according to Boothe. Considering the large turnout, there was only one incident to reach the campus police blotter. One student was picked up for DUI when he apparently lost control of his car while driving along Dixon Drive. He swerved into some parked cars and missed the large pillar near Harrison and Dixon by mere inches. Damages were estimated at $4,000. Lt. David Hestand of the campus police said, "We were lucky that this was the only serious thing that happened, considering all the alcohol that was being consumed." Hestand thought the Sunfest was quite successful otherwise. VV - VJ ' rh I H 5 ! VH Ml !! ! ' ' 7 U I S3, III! p' MMmMF III. Ill J I.

Weber State student dies in skydiving accident by Jim Konkel On Saturday afternoon, as the music and excitement of Sunfest blared on, a bizarre mishap claimed the life of a Weber State student.At approximately 6:45 p.m., Denise "Dee',' Brimhall, a freshman majoring in Fashion Merchandising, fell 3000 feet to her death in a skydiving accident in Logan, Utah. Brimhall, 21, had spent the day at the LoganCache airport with friends, receiving lessons in skydiving. She was reportedly making her first-ever solo jump when the automatic main parachute failed to open. She was said to have unsuccessfully tried to open the 'chute by hand, and apparently passed out and was unable to pull her reserve 'chute in time. She was pronounced dead at the hospital in Logan an hour later. Dee was an active member of the Residence Halls Association, having lived in both Promontory Tower and Stansbury Hall. She was active in planning and publicizing event put on by the halls. Vinnie Salemme, the same WSC student who parachuted onto the campus during Thursday's Sunfest activities, was the pilot of the light plane which was dropping the jumpers. Two others skydivers had gone before Dee, and a third was scheduled to jump after her, but did not. The cause of the accident is presently under investigation by the Federal Aviation Administration.

|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.|
