As the election season heats up, candidates seem to make a new campaign promise every day. Most promises include spending millions or even billions of dollars of the projected $4.6 trillion budget surplus to benefit a certain group of voters. Gore's overall plan, "Prosperity for America's Families," includes tax cuts and the creation of a $300 billion "reserve fund," among other expenditures, according to USA Today. Bush's plan, "Blueprint for the Middle Class," also includes tax cuts, and promises billions of dollars for reading programs, teacher training and recruitment, community health centers and programs for people with disabilities. And each major party candidate is accusing the other of overspending the surplus by about $1 trillion, according to USA Today.
The Main Library was transformed last night, as nearly 200 people filled the lobby to attend a symposium to honor the archives of the late Herman B Wells. Throughout Wells' career with IU he saved a huge assortment of papers, including his correspondences, meeting notes and records.

A weekend of firsts awaits the women's cross country team as it travels to St. Paul, Minn., to compete in the Roy Griak Invitational Saturday.

This distance holds new significance this year, since the 2000 Women's NCAA Championship race will be a 6K, rather than a 5K as in previous years.
Wisconsin sits near the top of the Big Ten heading into the opening weekend of the volleyball season. Northwestern idles in the league cellar. Indiana hovers between both, not expected to contend for the conference crown, but not expected to join the Wildcats in the basement.
Local Boy Scouts are being forced to re-evaluate their funding sources after the Monroe County United Way board ruled to cut funding to groups that refuse to sign a nondiscrimination policy. The Boy Scouts cannot sign the policy, scout executive Randy Brown said, due to the barring of homosexual leaders and scouts from their organization.
