Internet / Policy in district is working thinks the terminals in that portion of the library should be restricted and filtered, and he also thinks a policy might be installed that requires the children to have adult permission to use the Internet. The policies wouldn't be foolproof, McKenzie said. One child who has permission to use the Internet might bring a friend who doesn't. And children can stumble across sexy images just by looking for the latest Beanie Baby. "You can put the word 'toys' into a search engine, and come across sites that sell adult toys." When the children's library opens, McKenzie might impose an age restriction on the unfiltered terminals, such as allowing only those who are 16 or older to use them. McKenzie said the good on the Internet outweighs the bad. "We think it's a good resource for families and children, and there's just a wealth of information on it for everyone." The end of the innocence The Salina School District was facing the same problem last year as it prepared to work toward a goal of wiring all its classrooms to the Internet. How do you protect all those innocent Bo Peeps from seeing material that the girl-kisser Georgie Porgie might enjoy? The district, like many districts across the country, developed an "acceptable use" policy that was adopted this past year by the school board, said Jerry Brown, coordinator of technology for the district. Under the policy, a parent must sign a permission form before a child is allowed to use the Internet. A student who enters an unacceptable site on purpose is banned from using the 'Net. Brown said there are only a few sites in the school libraries and a couple of classrooms, so the problem could grow as more terminals are given Internet access. "We haven't had any problems yet and no complaints," Brown said. "The concern wasn't a high school student getting onto the 'Net. What parent is concerned about a senior seeing something like that? But we didn't want anything like that in our elementary schools." The district hasn't put any filtering system on its Internet ter- "We think it's a good resource for families and children, and there's just a wealth of information on it for eveijone." Joe McKenzie Salina Public Library director minals. But Brown said that may change if there were enough complaints. "The question is, 'To filter or not to filter,' " Brown said. "We don't because if you have a debate student looking for information, you lock out a lot of good places. The teachers, like any good teachers, watch what the kids are doing, and so we haven't had any problems." College concern also KSU-Salina also has a guideline, what it calls an "ethical use guideline," that states that a user won't download something from the 'Net that may offend someone. Porn falls under those guidelines, said Kathy Connelly, assistant director of information systems. The university reserves the Internet computers for students but allows citizens to use them. "People are expected to follow those guidelines even if there's not someone there monitoring the, lab," she said. If they don't, their user ID/ which is a personal code required for use of the terminals, might be taken away. *';. "We have a normal standard of; ethics and polite conduct," Connelly said. "We expect them to be, followed." ''•Professor Engel believes education provides a good balance between censoring the "Net and free^ ' dom of speech. He also doesn't be-' lieve the filtering programs are- foolproof. "Most of the time, you have kids who want to do the right thing, and they will do the right thing as^ long as you make it clear what the' right thing is. With the filters" 1 ,'" they can be defeated, just like Alock can be defeated. But why aren't more homes robbed? It's because they are told not to do that, and it's because of our education-; al system." ' c ON THE RECORD Josephine L. Westhusin PLAINVILLE — Josephine L.

The list of honorees read like a 1970s pop chart: the Jackson 5, Bee Gees, Joni Mitchell, Crosby, Stills and Nash, and Parliament-Funkadelic. The Young Rascals and Buffalo Springfield, who broke onto the charts from 1966 to 1968, rounded out the performers honored this year. Gospel singer Mahalia Jackson and bluegrass band leader Bill Monroe were inducted posthumously as early influences. Sydney Nathan, founder of King Records, was enshrined as a non-performer. Until this year, the inductions were in New York or Los Angeles. Although Cleveland got a turn at playing host, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum otficials have said it would not be a fixture there. "Having the inductions in Cleveland is a little like having the Academy Awards in Salt Lake City," said William Hulett, the hall's chief executive officer. The ceremonies at the Renaissance Cleveland Hotel were taped by the VH1 music channel for broadcast Friday and Saturday. "It's starting off right. We had a great soundcheck," said Bootsy Collins, bass player with Parliament- Funkadelic. On Tuesday evening, celebrities hung out with wealthy locals at a pre-ceremony cocktail party. A crowd of about 100 people stood el bow-to-elbow outside, hoping to get a glimpse of the inductees. Reva Thomas, 23, and two friend^ stood outside the hotel since 2 a.in Tuesday for a chance to see Michae Jackson. "I'm so scared to leave,' Thomas said. It was all in vain. The King of Poi and the other arriving stars took a back door into the dinner.
