Faculty prop recommends choir
director leave after spring semester
GRAND FORKS, N.D. — A University of
North Dakota faculty group is recommending
that choir director Anthony Reeves be dismissed
at the end of the spring semester, the end of the
controversial director's contract.
Reeves, an assistant professor, has contended
that the university is trying to fire him because he
is gay and because he and his partner tried to
adopt a 19-year-old student.
University officials denied the accusations.
Reeves was accused of unprofessional conduct
and neglect of duty.
A faculty committee heard nearly 80 hours of
testimony in Reeves' grievance hearing against
the university that began Nov. 7 and concluded
Reeves' attorney said he is considering send-
ing a letter to the university's president asking
him to hold off on taking any action until Reeves
can respond to the faculty report.
Protests by Phelps clan spur
iwmakers to act in Illinois, Indiana
After an anti-gay group staged protests at a
handful of military funerals in Illinois, state offi-
cials announced Tuesday they will push for a law
that would ban such demonstrations, joining
other lawmakers around the country in proposing
"It is not right, it is not legal, it is not constitu-
tional for any person to disrupt a funeral," said
Lieutenant Governor Pat Quinn in announcing
The same day in neighboring Indiana, a leg-
islative committee gave its approval to a bill that
would make disorderly conduct a felony if it
occurs within 500 feet of funerals or memorial
Both measures were intended to counter the
extreme techniques employed by Rev. Fred
Phelps and members of his tiny church in
Topeka, Kan. At an Indiana funeral for a service-
member killed in Iraq, church members dragged
American flags on the ground and shouted insults
at surviving family members. Phelps contends
that American soldiers are being killed in Iraq as
vengeance from God for protecting a country that
Similar legislation is being pursued in
Missouri, Nebraska, Iowa and Oklahoma.
'Brokeback Mountain' screening
canceled in Salt Lake City suburb
SALT LAKE CITY — A movie theater
owned by Utah Jazz owner Larry Miller abruptly
changed its screening plans and canceled the film
"Brokeback Mountain." The film, for any gay
person on the planet who doesn't know by now,
is an R-rated gay love story between cowboys.
It was planned to open Friday at the Megaplex
at Jordan Commons in Sandy, a suburb of Salt
Lake City. It was pulled form the schedule
A message posted at the ticket window said:
'There has been a change in booking and we will
not be showing 'Brokeback Mountain.' We apol-
ogize for any inconvenience." Cal Gunderson,
the manager of the Jordan Commons Megaplex,
declined to comment about the situation.
The film, starring Health Ledger and Jake
Gyllenhaal, is about two cowboys who discover
they have feelings for each other. To two even-
taully marry women but usually arrange to get
together once of twice a year.
Anti-gay bullying may have prompted
slashing attack, police say
Police in Sunrisej Fla. are investigating
whether a student who slashed a schoolmate with
a razor blade on Tuesday did it in retaliation for
being bullied about his sexual orientation,
according to a report in the Miami Herald.
'"We are considering that as a motive, in addi-
tion to other possibilities,'" said Lt. Robert Voss.
Broward County Schools spokesman Keith
Bromery said he was unaware of whether the
Bair Middle School seventh-graders were feud-
ing because one had harassed the other about
possibly being gay.
Voss said at least 20 other students saw the
Tuesday afternoon attack outside Bair Middle
The student who slashed the forehead and leg
of his classmate was charged by police with two
felonies: aggravated battery and possession of a
weapon on school grounds, Voss said. A school
official said he will be suspended for at least 10
days and likely will be expelled.
The boy who was cut got 14 stitches at
Plantation General Hospital. Because he had
punched the other boy, Voss said, he was taken by
officers to the police station and charged with
simple battery and released to his parents.
