By RANDY CARDEN Staff writer of The Signpost KWCR officials have known they will be relocating since last year, however, the site of their temporary new home is still unknown. Eventually, KWCR will relocate to Union Building, where The Signpost's production department is now. The 'Signpost will occupy the area of the Union Building formerly occupied by Marriott Food Services, said Ty Sanders, director of broadcasting in the communication department. At the rate of current rennovation, KWCR and The Signpost will not be able to move by Dec. 15, Sanders said. KWCR has to be out of Annex 3 by that date because the asbestos abatement will begin. "What it comes down to is, move to a temporary space or go off the air. Where that temporary space will be, I i don't know," Sanders said. " "The temporary spot for the radio station has been decided on, but has not yet been approved by President's Council. It won't be approved until next Wednesday," said Michael E. ,-iwlis, director of the Shepherd Union Building. "We're looking to set up a temporary trailer. We're concerned with keeping the radio station on the air," Ellis said. "We're going to try to have the space available here for them to move into by Dec. 1 or there about." According to a 1992-3 Special Projects Request, written by Ellis, relocation of the radio station was proposed to take place in the summer of '92.

Reasons for the radio station not being able to move by the original proposed date derived from several factors, said Dr. Marie Kotter, vice president of student services. WSU's architectural service department contracted the remodeling project out to another architectural firm because WSU architects were trying to complete too many projects. "The rationale was to speed it up, when in fact it didn't speed it up it slowed them down," Kotter said. "Both The Signpost and KWCR made some changes. In other words, the architect did a plan and then came back with a preliminary plan and there were changes made, which slowed things dovn a little bit," Kotter said. The Signpost decided to change the location of a couple of doors and the dark room configuration, Ellis said. Because of changes, the architectural firm had to get on with other commitments they had with other organizations, said Jerry Jones, an architect from the WSU architectural service department. "That's essentially what the whole delay has been," Jones said. Money to cover the cost of this move and the renovation of The Signpost and the new radio station area is coming out of the student fee bond for the Union Building, Kotter said. "In student fees last year, we ap proved remodeling the Union Building based on keeping up with the student service building," Kotter said. About $100,000 has been approved by student services to cover the cost of the relocation of the radio station, which i ncl udes the cost o f a 1 1 the reno-vations that need to take place before the radio station can move in.

SLCC student newspaper plants phony letter Managing editor receives 30-day probation after trying to create student interest Associated Press SALT LAKE CITY The student editor of Salt Lake Community College Horizon has found himself in tempest of controversy after planting a phony letter in the campus newspaper. The goal of the letter, according to managing editor Dean Cruff, was to stimulate interest in the paper's editorial page. The result was something different. 'They definitely want to crucify me," he said, after the letter sparked a flood of sometimes nasty rebuttals and a petition drive for his resignation. "We did it, it was unethical, but we didn't kill anybody. We just tried to make people mad enough to write in." The letter, signed by a fictitious Jack Campbell, appeared on the op-edit page Oct. 21 and lambasted students who pay tuition with federal grants as "losers," "low-lifers" and "drug users." It infuriated readers, many of whom suggested just whereCampbell should put his ideas. The letter, however, was actually written by the newspaper staff and an interim adviser. For his part, Cruff has found himself on 30-days probation as the paper's editor. Cruff said the letter was put together by newspaper staff and a $9-an-hour temporary advisor hired to help guide students in their journalistic endeavor. The advisor, who Cruff would not identify, is gone. "He helped crea le the letter a nd thought it was great," Cruff said. The letter successfully fired up the 19,000-member SLCC student body, 6,000 of whom pay for college through student aid programs such as the Pell grant. "It makes the rest of us so sick that you all get to go to college for free," wrote the nonexistent Campbell.

|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.|
