Sauer is concerned that the "swap" of 1320 acres to developer Earl Holding could lock-out local ' residents from recreational activities, increase taxes, reduce Weber's WERC working for men as well By Debbie Boman Staff writer of The Signpost The title WERC or Women's Educational Resource Center can be misleading. Their program is designed to help non-traditional students return to school and prepare for the work force. "These services are also available for men," said Renee Johnson, a counselor at the INSIDE News 2 Editorial 4 Slate College student, opposes sale ol public Ogden's water supply and endanger the only nearby wetland wildlife habitat. "I think they're trying to push this thing through," Sauer said. "I don't think there's been proper public scoping done." The proposed development would consist of 1500 condominiums, an additional ski lift, several parking lots, restaurants and single family dwellings in what is now a protected wildlife area, according to a coalition bulletin. Area residents would be locked out from the upland game hunting, camping and horseback riding they now enjoy in the area. center. At the present time there are few men involved in the program. "Men might feel intimidated by the name," Holly Pierce said, the center's secretary. "But, our program is as pertinent to men as it is to women."

"The runs would be longer and there'd be two or three more runs," said Jock Glidden, a Weber State philosophy professor who is oppossing the land swap. "That's my benefit what does it cost me?" The average student who now can ski at Snowbasin for $18, would have to pay about $40 at the new facility. The greatest cost, though, would be the loss of the irreplaceable wetlands, according to Glidden. These wetlands were purchased by the Forest Service (See LAND page 3) John Foley, a non-traditional student, graduating this year with a BSI, said, "People think by the time you're my age you should have made up your mind what to do." The WERC helped Foley in couseling and by giving him tests to decide if he could compete with younger students. They also gave him test to find out his interests. "I'm 56 going on 40," said Foley.

|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.|
