Maybe not this exact storyline, but for other wild plots, nearly 8,000 people will be attending the third-annual Story Telling Festival Nov. 16-18. The Festival runs from 9:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. each of the three days and will include legends, fairy tales, myths and fables for all ages, as well as workshops for parents and educators. It takes 35 members of a board that meets all year long to set the Festival up, said Karen Lofgreen, chairwoman of the event and Weber State University teacher education professor. "Some part of every day for a year, I work on the Story Telling Festival," she said. This year there will be 47 storytelling sessions and eight workshops. Almost every session has a student, national and regional speaker. "Every year we add something new that seems to make it gain momentum," Lofgreen said. As something new this year, there will be three sessions of multi-lingual stories. Stories will be told in French, German, Japanese, Russian, Spanish, Ibo, Hindi, Cherokee and Native American Sign Language for students who are taking or know those languages. There will not be an interpreter for those stories. Also, two sessions will be interpreted Monday for the hearing impaired, and students from the School for the Deaf and Blind will attend.

|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.|
