    Julie Beck is an articulate, well-educated, well-respected, world-traveled, and gracious woman who happens to be an alumnae of Dixie College. She is an appropriate and fortunate choice for Dixie State College.

    so anyone who served in a church position is tainted? I think those who support the 1st amendment would disagree. Former church service does NOT disqualify one from civil service.

    Marlin Jensen is, in my estimation, à great man and a spiritual giant. I am, and however, intrigued by the tangled web of church and state in Utah.

    This is bad news and I don't like it one bit. We all know there is no such thing as "former church leader", they always will be and they will never change their socialist ideals. It's bad enough that the LDS church has taken over our governmnet with high ranking LDS lobbyist controlling the legislators, now they are being given the green light to turn our education system into a socialized school system and the loss of free speech and civil rights.

    The state of Utah has every intention of turning Utah americans citizens into good little socialist and what better way to turn a democracy into a socialist empire than through the minds of our children. Train them to share their wealth before they can attain it or better yet make them believe they don't deserve to attain wealth. Our schools are alr3ady full of socialists children and parents of the foreign occupation forces to help lead the way to welfare poverty.

    Their is a major break down of separation of church and state in Utah with our government and government agency's being taken over by very high level religious socialist zealots.
