Norm Bangerter and State School Superintendent Jay Taggart to task for blaming parents for Utah schools' woes. "It's the system that's at fault, not parents," Howard Stephenson said in a prepared statement. On Monday, Bangerter gave Utah parents an "F" in his education report card. Taggart, meanwhile, complained about parents criticizing him. "Utah has the most dedicated parents of any state in the nation and for Gov. Bangerter to give them an 'F shows that he's out of touch with reality," Stephenson said Wednesday. "When parents are given freedom of choice in determining how and where their child ren are educated, then they will deserve the praise or blame for how well their children are educated," he added.

SUMMERS Sports editor of The Signpost Weber State University quarterback, Jamie Martin, has been named the Sports Illustrated Offensive Player of the Week. This marks the second time in three seasons a Weber State player has been honored by the magazine. In November 1989, WSU defensive back Mike Babb earned the honor after intercepting four passes, returning one for a touchdown against Idaho State. "I feel proud for our offense and our team," said the ever-humble Martin. "It's a tribute to our whole school, not just the individual. When the people look at the magazine, they will see Weber State and that makes me proud." Martin completed 33-51 passes for 440 yards and seven touchdowns in Weber's wild 63-59 victory over conference rival, Eastern Washington. The seven touchdown passes set (See MARTIN page 8) .......

|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.|
