Sears said existing law requires a state standard, which, he added, defense attorneys use to tfieir advantage because no two towns are alike. Require that the managers of sexually oriented businesses be able to see the entire premises at all times. Pima County is considering a similar ordinance. Sears said the bill would put peep shows rooms where clients watch sexually oriented movies, for example, in private effectively out of business. State Rep. John Kromko, D-Tuc-son, a commission member, said after the meeting that he will oppose the bill. "I've been very protective of the rights people have of free speech and free expression," Kromko said. "Some people have a completely different idea of what's obscene than Qther people." Tim Johnson, owner of the Follies Burlesque Theatre in Tucson, said the proposed legislation "sounds like Russia. It would really hurt me to think the state could do it." "They ought to put this guy away," Johnson added, referring to Sears. Paul Felicione of Pleasure World Book Store, an adult store in Tucson, called the measure silly. Felicione said sexual devices "obviously are in demand or they wouldn't be sold." He added: "We're in such a hypocritical society." Making alcohol for class irks student's mom SCOTTSDALE (AP) Robert Myers' mother was less than pleased when the Scottsdale seventh-grader told her that he could earn extra credit by making beer or wine. "We'd just moved down here from Oregon," Jean Myers said. "I'd been involved in a 'Just Say No' program (to fight drinking and drug use among youths). We don't even condone having alcohol or drinks in our house, and my son comes home with this assignment. I was freaking out." The assignment for pupils at Supai Middle School has been retracted, and principal Corwin Ellsworth and science teacher Greg Hall have apologized to parents.

Sears works for Citizens for Decency Through Law a conservative Scottsdale-based group. Among other provisions, the bill seeks to: Outlaw the sale or import of any obscene devices. Violators would face up to two years in prison and be subject to a fine of up to $1 million. Sears said the devices are health hazards. He said the bill would not affect people who have the products at home for their own use. Asked to explain how people could have the products if they couldn't buy them, Sears said women don't like using them, anyway.

By Melissa Rigg The Arizona Dally Star PHOENIX The sale of dildos, vibrators and other sexual devices would be outlawed undera new bill. The bill, to be introduced by state Rep. Leslie Whiting Johnson, R-Mesa, also is designed to put peep shows out of business. A draft of the bill was released yesterday to the Joint Legislative Study Commission on Pornography. After the meeting, Johnson said she believes "pornography is a pernicious evil that we should keep carefully in check within the guidelines of the law." Johnson co-chairs the commission, which has been meeting since early November to discuss ways to strengthen Arizona's pornography laws. Alan Sears, the attorney who Vn NLY 1 57988.

"These are essential biological processes that occur in baking bread or in fermentation." Pupils in the science class were told that they could earn extra credit for doing out-of-class research on the processes that occur in making wine or baking bread. The credit award was to be 50 points for a handwritten report, 75 points for a computer-written report and 125 points for demonstrating a controlled anaerobic reaction by making beer or wine. The assignment made it clear that the credit would be given only if parents returned a signed statement that the pupils had been successful in their fermentation, Hall said. But Mrs. Myers said the assignment showed poor judgment in light of the fight against drug use. Ellsworth conceded that the assignment was ill-advised, and said that at least one other parent had complained. But he noted that the textbook Hall is using contains a sec-' tion on chemical abuse and prevention. "So I don't think students would have gotten the wrong idea," Ellsworth said. "It's certainly not the intention of our teachers or schools to instruct kids in that process (of making alcoholic beverages)." Hall said the assignment was changed to offer extra credit for pupils who can succeed in growing penicillin, which, like yeast, is a type of mold. Report of new sun to be debate topic An archaeologist who claims to have found a sunlike star will debate the Tucson Skeptics' chairman tomorrow at a meeting of the American Atheist's Tucson chapter. In September, local archaeologist Jeffrey Goodman announced the discovery of a 10th planet in the solar system. Last month, he said the planet was actually a sunlike star with four large planets orbiting it Goodman called his discovery Abba, and said it has gone undetected by astronomers. James E. McGaha of the Tucson Skeptics will debate Goodman at 6:30 p.m. at Coco's Restaurant, 345 W. Drachman St. The meeting is free and open to the public
