Fitness legend gives $1 million to The University of Texas at Austin 13 Reads
AUSTIN, Texas—A gift of $1 million has been pledged to The University of Texas at Austin’s Todd-McLean Physical Culture Collection, the world’s largest and most complete archival collection of materials related to physical fitness, sport training, purposive exercise, bodybuilding, physical education and alternative medicine. The donation was made by Joe and Betty Weider, pioneers in the areas of bodybuilding and publishing. The money will be used to support the work at the Todd-McLean Collection.
“Joe Weider is a legend in the fields of weight training, health and fitness, and Betty has been an icon symbolizing the beneficial effects of exercise and correct eating since the 1950s,” says Dr. Terry Todd, creator and co-director with his wife Dr. Jan Todd, of the Physical Culture Collection. “Jan and I are extremely grateful for their support. We’ve amassed more than 200,000 items in our collection, including books, photos, art, film, video and artifacts on everything from the Olympic movement to naturopathy, vaudeville and ergogenic aids. It’s very gratifying to have people as well-known as the Weiders acknowledge
the importance of this archive.”

Firefighters save Putnam company's documents
By DON BOND
Norwich Bulletin
PUTNAM -- The good work of firefighters from
Putnam and three other departments in halting the
spread of an arson in a converted-mill building early
Saturday helped save almost all the records of a local
accounting firm.
The company, LaPointe, Steele & Co., P.C., of 23
Ballou St., was able to move most of its records to its
Norwich office over the weekend.
"There was only a minimal loss of paperwork,"
Richard Steele, a partner in the company, said
Monday. "We were able to get into the building on
Sunday and have recovered our records and
paperwork."

Do you shred?
Shredding documents thwarts dumpster divers seeking personal info
By EILEEN AMBROSE
Baltimore Sun
4/27/2004
On a recent episode of the NBC-TV
sitcom "Whoopi," Whoopi Goldberg's
character had her identity stolen and her
friend was shocked - not that a 58-year-old
man was passing himself off as her, but
that she doesn't shred.
As more Americans are discovering,
tearing up credit offers and canceled
checks into tiny pieces by hand doesn't cut
it any more.

Register of deeds to seek third term
From staff reports
Apr 27, 2004 : 12:40 am ET
DURHAM -- Durham County Register of Deeds Willie L. Covington filed for re-election to
his post Monday.
Covington, who is serving his second four-year term, said he wanted to continue to apply high
technology to his office, which was fully a paper operation when he took over.
The filing period for the primaries opened Monday at noon. Because of a court battle over
legislative district maps, the primaries were delayed from May to July.
"I was looking at the possibility of a second career in some form of real estate, and I came
down and used the office. I found out our operation was totally antiquated. It just struck me as
odd that we in Durham are at the hub of technology and we have a manual operation," he said.

Former Lowndes
cornoner turns over
files to successor
Associated Press
COLUMBUS, Miss. - The former coroner in
Lowndes County has turned over five years of files to
his successor, a longtime political rival who Don
Harris said could have been more polite in asking for
them.
Harris gave the files Monday to County Attorney
Tim Hudson. Harris earlier had told officials that most of these records had been destroyed.

Mortgage refinancings trigger flood of documents for county register
Tuesday, April 27, 2004
By John Martins
Journal staff writer
Homeowners and lending institutions weren't the only ones who benefited from
the mortgage refinancing craze of 2003. Hudson County also made off with a
pretty nice take - to the tune of about $9 million.
Since every real estate transaction involves a number of documents that must
be filed with the county, the fees incurred in the process can, depending on
volume, be quite substantial.
When you add to that a percentage from the state-mandated realty transfer
fee, the processing of those documents can easily turn what some might call
humdrum bureaucracy into a cash cow.

Herald Tribune
Lawmakers to examine teacher records issue
BY VICTOR HULL CAPITAL BUREAU
TALLAHASSEE -- A Herald-Tribune public records request has angered school teachers across the state, prodding lawmakers to seek ways to prrevent public disclosure of teachers' Social Security numbers under Florida's open records laws. 
But state lawmakers aren't likely to approve a public records exemption before they are scheduled to adjourn Friday. Instead, the Legislature plans to study the issue over the next several months to prepare a bill for next year.
Crafting an exemption that protects the privacy of teachers and other public employees without complicating the disclosure necessary for their personal financial transactions -- paycheck deposits, pensions, credit applications and the like -- is proving more difficult than expected.

DISK DRIVES: How fast can they go?
Keay Davidson
The ultimate speed of magnetic disk drives is at least 1,000
times slower than previously expected..
So claims a team led by physicist Joachim Stohr of
Stanford's Linear Accelerator Center that includes
collaborators at Seagate Technology, a major manufacturer
of disk drives.
The implications are significant. It means that existing
technology is fast approaching the outer limits of data
storage speed. Beyond the limit, computer scientists will
have to use alternate, "denser" means of data storage that do
not involve magnetic recording.

Wichita Police Seek Serial Killer Using Laserfiche Technology
LONG BEACH, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--April 27, 2004--It's any cop's nightmare: a serial killer who
disappeared a quarter century ago pops up again, taunting police with clues about unsolved murders. But it's not a nightmare; it's a real case unfolding in Wichita, KS.
Wichita IT analyst Cliff Thomas became part of the search team in early April when local detectives and FBI agents arrived in his office. They told him Wichita police reports stored in the LaserFiche digital records management system contain clues needed to break the case. They've been studying LaserFiche files daily ever since.
