David M. Bresnahan, 47, a former radio talk-show host and former Utah state representative, said that "the welcome mat was rolled up and the door slammed in its face" when a Scout group responded to the Salt Lake Olympic Organizing Committee's call for volunteers. Olympic and local Scouting officials both said the boys can't be volunteers for the 2002 Winter Olympics because they don't meet the minimum age requirement of 18. "[Bresnahan's charge] happens to be 100 percent inaccurate," SLOC President Mitt Romney said Two governors ban discrimination against gay state employees HELENA, Mont.—Montana Republican Gov. Marc Raci consideration to be President-elect George W. Bush's attorney general, has issued new state guidelines barring discrimination against state employees based on sexual orientation, the Billings Gazette reported. Racicot asked the state's Department of Administration to rewrite the guidelines more than a year ago, and specifically asked that sexual orientation be included in the" new policy. "We don't want people making employment decisions based on any of these factors," said John McEwen said, state personnel division administrator. In Dover, Del., outgoing Democratic Gov. Thomas Carper also extended similar protections to Delaware state employees, the Wilmington News Journal reported. The order applies to all state Cabinet departments and executive agencies that fall under the governor's authority, and will remain in effect unless rescinded by another governor. A bill that would have forbidden employment discrimination against gays in the public and private sector was defeated in the Delaware House earlier this year. In January, Carper will be replaced by Democrat Ruth Anne Minnow. Montana Gov. Marc Racicot, at one time a leading candidate for U.S. Attorney General in a Bush administration, issued guidelines protecting gay state employees from discrimination. Aspen officials reject rainbow flags to celebrate Gay Ski Week ASPEN, Colo. (AP)—The Aspen City Council denied a request to hang rainbow flags on Main Street to mark next month's Gay Ski Week. Instead, they voted to maintain the current policy of only allowing U.S. and Colorado flags and flags marking anniversaries of local groups at least 25 years old. They also agreed to let non-profit groups fly a single flag at Paepcke Park during ski week. "Aspen has the only Gay Ski Week in the United States," resident Greg Hughes said. "It celebrates Aspen on an international stage as being open to ' diversity." But Councilman Tony Hershey argued that the city shouldn't allow exceptions to its policy. "Suppose the American Nazi Party wants to have Nazi Ski Week. We'd have to have Nazi flags up and down Main Street," Hershey said. Mayor Rachel Richards said the real issue is the commercialization of Aspen. "It's how much and how often you want to promote this week's marketing event for the town," she said. "Do you want flags on Main Street 40 to 50 weeks a year?" Gay group in N.Y. wants legislators to ban teasing based on bias ALBANY, N.Y.—A coalition of groups led by the state's largest gay rights group is pushing the New York Legislature to enact a measure banning teasing based on bias in New York's public schools, the Rochester Democrat & Chronicle reported. The Dignity for All Students Act would establish statewide regulations to prevent harassment in public schools against racial, religious and ethnic minorities as well as gay classmates. "There's no uniform policy in the state that recognizes harassment as a problem," said Matthew Foreman, executive director of Gay Pride Agenda, a New York gay advocacy group. Free- speech advocates said the proposed legislation would inhibit the way students address each other in public schools. "Whenever the government attempts to regulate free speech, it's a concern to us," said Marina Sheriff, legislative director for the New York chapter of the ACLU. Former HIV-positive court clerk sues after termination earlier this year LITTLE ROCK (AP)—A former worker who was demoted after informing supervisors that he was infected with HIV, and later fired after missing days from work, filed a $1.2 million federal lawsuit Dec. 20. Christopher Haynes alleges wrongful discharge, discrimination and infliction of emotional stress in the civil rights lawsuit. He seeks damages, reinstatement, and back pay, and also asks that Pulaski County Clerk Carolyn Staley either be removed from office or that the court assign an officer to monitor her employment practices. The lawsuit said Haynes began work for the county as a deputy clerk in April 1999 and was promoted to administrative assistant the following August, It said Haynes informed Staley and Janice Hay, chief deputy clerk, in October 1999 that he is HIV-positive and that his absences from work were due to his medical condition. Haynes was demoted ISfJ . . to deputy clerk three months late and fired in
