say Supreme Court further clouded issue with split decisions By STEPHEN HENDERSON Knight Ridder Newspapers WASHINGTON In split rul ings the Supreme Court reached a compromise Monday on gov ernment displays of the Ten Commandments that advocates on both sides of the issue decried as adding mud to murky The justices struck down displays in two Kentucky court houses saying their intent and purpose were explicitly religious and therefore at odds with consti tutional protections against gov ernmentsponsored proselytizing But the court upheld a 44year old display on the Texas Capitol grounds

of north from Santa Fe to the opera being rebuilt the last three years is now free of construction equipment and bypass lanes though cars coining to the opera from the north still have to cope with lane restrictions Then the operas lovyer parking lot once dirt that turned into mud during rain has been paved for patrons comfort and conve nience And postperformance drivers may take either the north or south opera gates to access via new ramps and inter changes That should help drivers arrive and leave more quickly and much more safely But Trujillo and his 15person crew will still be parking up to cars and five to 10 buses each night We want all cars to come in the south entrance when Trujillo said They need to take the Tesuque exit where it says Opera Drive When they leave they can go both ways that is either north or south People who want to avoid the highway altogether can take the frontage road from Opera Drive south to the Tano Drive bridge over the main As in the past few years once cars leave the grounds police cars will be on hand for further safety Since the construction has all opened up people are breezing along pretty Trujillo said So we will have our friends
