That's the highest level of immigrants living in U.S. since before World War II. . A3  Rita Beamish  Associated Press  NEW YORK - With the Statue of Liberty as a backdrop, California Gov. Pete Wilson formally entered the GOP presidential race Monday with a dark portrait of a federal government "out of step, out of touch and out of control."  Wilson pledged to restore fairness to a nation that he said has slipped into decline since his immigrant grandparents came from Ireland at the turn of the century. He said he would keep faith with Americans who "work hard, pay their taxes and raise their children to obey the law."  The famous statue has long been a beacon to immigrants, but Wilson used it as a symbol of his fight against illegal immigration, saying there is a "right way to come to America and a wrong way."  Wilson sought to portray himself as an activist governor who gets things done while Republican rivals merely debate the issues. He criticized affirmative action programs and expansion of welfare — central themes, along with crime, of his effort to tap into voter anger and fear.  Wilson accused President Clinton of blocking welfare reform and said the president has waved a "white flag" in the war on drugs and waffled on for  eign policy.  "He can't balance our budget. He can't even secure our borders," he said.  Wilson's campaign has been slow to start, although he has announced his candidacy in several formats to reassure supporters that he is in fact in the race. Throat surgery and then state budget talks this summer postponed plans for a formal kickoff.  Although polls have shown him running well behind front-runner Bob Dole even in California, and faring poorly in the field nationally, Wilson on Monday noted he has come from  Turn to RACE/A5  JETE  i init * a® mjfjk a maß  wil K(\\ ^SONjIPfBT  Knight-Ridder photo  Gov.

For students, summertime is history  Schools open for new year in Mid-Valley  Dan Crawford  Appeal-Democrat  Summer vacation always ends too soon for some students.  "School stinks," said Yuba City High School senior Sean Stro-mer, 18, in a break between first-day classes at the Mid-Valley's largest high school Monday.  "It's pretty crowded," he said.  But Principal Frank Motta viewed the resumption of classes for up to 2,700 students in more positive terms.  "It started extremely well," he said of his third year at Yuba City High, describing the campus atmosphere as "calm and serene."  Motta said all students found their way to classes or the counseling center by 8:15 a.m., just 15 minutes into first period.  "What an improvement," he said. "My first year it was 8:45 a.m. It's gotten better every year."  He said the center helped 40 students early Monday — down from 100 last year. Most students failed to pick up class lists in advance or still needed to register.  Jeanie Van Tassel, 18, — married just 10 days ago — waited with her husband Jason, 20, to see a counselor to enroll for her senior year.  She found out Monday that married students could attend the regular high school program. A student who answered her inquiry also was married, Jason Van Tassel said.  "I thought I was going to have to go to continuation high school," Jeanie Van Tassel said.  She attended the 540-student Sutter Union High School last year. No stranger to large schools, she attended Nevada Union High School in Grass Valley as a freshman among more than 3,000 students.  The Van Tassels took her registration packet home to fill out rather than spend the day sitting in the office. She hopes to find her way into classes soon, "maybe tomorrow," she said.  She picked Yuba City over Sutter to save money, since she now lives in the city.  "It's too far to drive," she said of their '65 Chevrolet with a V-8 engine. "The gas money would kill us."  Cooperation from Mother Nature, who served up a light breeze and temperatures in the  Turn to SCHOOL /A5  Dave Nielsen/Appeal-Democrat  Yuba City High School Principal Frank Motta points out directions to the correct rooms for a pair of students looking for their classes Monday morning.  Uniforms get 'cool' reception from students  Dan Crawford  Appeal-Democrat  School uniforms drew mixed reactions Monday at Alicia Intermediate School, where about a third of the 800 students showed up in the voluntary attire the first day of school.  "They're cool!" said Nancy Olivarez, a 13-year-old eighth-grader who wore a white blouse and a navy blue skirt.  "It's better than any other clothes you wear," said Jonathan Ollar, 12, a seventh-grader sporting a gold earring with his white polo shirt and dark pants.  Students may choose either dark blue or black pants, shorts or skirts to go with a white shirt or blouse with a collar. They also may wear a gray or forest green sweatshirt.  With gang violence a concern at campuses across the nation, schools such as Alicia view uniform policies as a way to ease the problem.  "The gangs won't go after you," said Joe Vue, 13, another seventh-grader.  "Not everybody's in a gang," countered Mary Gentry, 14. Branding uniforms as stupid, the eighth-grader said, "I think we should wear what we want."  Eighth-grader Amber Ortiz also criticized the standard apparel.  "You don't have a choice of colors," she  Dave Nielsen/Appeal-Democrat Alicia School students Kyle Malecha,  14, Ravi Arman, 12, and Tim Moroak,  15, wait for their bus after school Monday. All three wore uniforms for the first day of school.  said.  Moua Vang, 12, a seventh-grader, also berated the idea, even though he wore a uniform. "My old clothes are better," he said.  Ortiz admitted teasing some who showed up in uniforms, a practice at  tendance clerk Shauna Dansby said the staff hoped to discourage.  "We're trying to stop it," she said, "but you know how cruel kids can be."  Others freely drew from MTVs Beavis and Butthead lexicon to describe their feelings about uniforms.  "They're ugly; they're bug; they're nasty," said Joanne Lawson, a 14-year-old eighth-grader.  "I don't like 'em dude, they're weird," said Scott Swope, 13.  School principal Jack Stokes, said he thought they looked great.  "It just improves the whole atmosphere of the place," he said.  Stokes hopes the uniform trend will gain increasing acceptance among the 800 students in sixth, seventh and eighth grades.  "Financially, it's a great deal for parents," Stokes said.  The most economical outfit costs $8. A variety of styles are available from several local outlets.  Alicia becomes the largest public school to offer uniforms as a clothing option in the Mid-Valley. The push came from parents last year, Stokes said.  Students who do not uniforms must adhere to the school dress code that bans gang apparel, hats, tank tops for boys, baggy pants and extremely tight garments.  Braund quits YC council  Spouse's transfer forces resignation  Todd R. Hansen  Appeal-Democrat  Less than a year after her election to the Yuba City City Council, Councilwoman Mary Braund has announced her resignation effective Friday.  "Due to the need to move out of state for my husband's employment, I will no longer be able to carry out my duties as council-woman. Though I will miss serving the community, my priority is, of course, my family," Braund wrote in a letter filed with the city Friday. She could not be reached for further comment  "Regardless of Money magazine's rankings, Yuba City is a wonderful place to call home," the letter states. It also thanks the council, the city staff and the voters who elected her.  Braund had served only nine months of a term that expires in November 1998. A candidate who pushed for the creation of jobs, she had little opportunity to address that issue, but was on the council when the new bi-county Economic Development Corporation was formed.  "It has been exciting being involved in forging new directions for our community and city gov-, ernment and playing a part in planning the future for what I  Turn to BRAUND /AS  Mary Braund  Leaving the state  INDEX  INDEX     Classified    D1      Comics    D6      Community    C1      Crosswords    D1      Entertainment    C5      Features    C4      Finance    B5      Life    C6      Markets    B5      Obituaries    C2      Opinion    A4      Sports    B1      Television Log    C4      Vitals/Lottery    C2      Weather    A6     A Freedom Newspaper Vol. 135, No. 34 1530 Ellis Like Drive Matysville, Calif. 95901 741-2345  A Freedom Newspaper Vol. 135, No. 34 1530 Ellis Like Drive Matysville, Calif. 95901 741-2345  <
