New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (Newspaper) - June 20, 1995, New Braunfels, Texas 6 HeraldZeitung Tuesday June Snyder students take heated rivalry to court LUBBOCK Texas AP Court room maneuvers have overtaken the rivalry for grades between two top students at Snyder High School The covaledictorians faced off Monday in a lawsuit filed to deter mine who gets her college tuition waived for one year Holly Jones 18 and Veana Clay 17 both took the stand during a hear ing called to help settle the dispute Miss Jones went through four years of high school and finished of a point behind Miss Clay who grad uated after just three years by taking correspondence courses through Texas Tech University Sayder Independent School District officials this spring named them co and put No 1 rank ings on both transcripts while des ignating only Miss Clay for a tuition voucher from the Texas Education Agency We felt like they were so close such outstanding students we wanted to honor high school Principal Larry Scott testified Robert Nebb attorney for Miss Jones accused the school of inter preting its rules on a whim District Judge Sam Cummings said he will rule Friday whether to grant the preliminary injunction Miss Jones is seeking That injunction would prevent offi cials from submitting Miss Clays name for the TEA scholarship award ed to each school districts top gradu ate The scholarship pays for oneyear tuition at a state school Heres the issue Whether the schools Tiger Tips student hand book allows top recognition for a threeyear graduate Miss Jones alleges that school administrators committed breach of contract by violating the handbook which states At the end of four years of high school students shall be ranked according to the total average of points But officials denied that Tiger Tips represented a contract And they interpret the handbook to mean the equivalent of four years of course work Superintendent Gayle Lomax testi fied Monday that administrators decid ed Miss Clays higher gradepoint average makes her the sole choice for the TEAs tuition voucher High Court OKs gay ban at parade BOSTON AP The veterans group that organizes the citys St Patricks Day Parade says it was a victory for ftee speech and family values when the Supreme Court allowed them to bar gays and lesbians But the homosexual organization that challenged parade organizers says its members are being excluded from their rightful place among the Irish The Supreme Court ruled unanimously Monday that since the parade is a private event and symbolic form of free speech the veterans group has the right to decide what groups and messages are included The ruling reversed lower court findings that the parade was a public event with no particular message and therefore subject to a state law that forbids discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation in any public accommodation It was always just a family day The Supreme Court had the wisdom to see that even though the courts in Massa chusetts did said John Wacko Hurley spokesman for the South Boston Allied War Veterans Council Its a great victory in South Boston and a great victory for the whole This is a total vindication of everyones First Amendment right to speak as they please in a public said Chester Darling lawyer for the veterans group which has run the parade with city funding since the 1940s But the IrishAmerican Gay Lesbian and Bisexual Group of Boston or GLIB said the veterans stance has divided the Irish community and spoiled the parade Its a hollow victory for them because they have ruined the event by their said Cathleen Finn GLIB cochairwoman They have prevented us from taking our rightful place among the Irish Cochairman David OConnor said his group does not want its own parade And he predicted that the decision would someday be regarded the same way as rulings that jus tified discrimination against blacks if they were provided with separate but equal facilities Separate but equal is not what we believe in We believe in one parade for OConnor said The parade has featured as many as marchers and a million spectators It traditionally honors not only Irish Americans but also Evacuation George Washingtons victory that forced British troops out of South Boston in 1776 The high courts narrowly focused decision written by Jus tice David H Souter does not allow the veterans group to pre vent gays and lesbians from marching as members of other approved parade groups It does say that the veterans council should not have been forced by lower courts to let the gay group march in 1992 and 1993 under its own banner since the veterans group disap proved of the banners message Sponsors canceled last years parade rather than allow the gay group to participate We use the word parade to indicate marchers who are making some sort of collective point not just to each other but to bystanders along the Souter wrote Parades are thus a form of expression not just motion the parades overall message is distilled from the individual presentations along the way and each units expression is per ceived by spectators as part of the he added New location HeraldZeitung photo by MICHAEL DARNALL
