In what City planner Don Mccarty termed probably the most controversial item on the Agenda the amendment would require that Public and Semi Public buildings be constructed in such a manner that they Are accessible and functional for the physically handicapped and the aged. Mccarty explained the ordinance does not Only include those buildings financed with Federal funds but All buildings open for Public use such As churches retail establishments and restaurants As Well As financial this is definitely a pretty important Issue to have open discussions Mccarty said. Representatives from both building and contracting associations and handicapped groups Are expected to attend the meeting to debate the Issue. When asked Why the planning commission might be trying to push these and other items through now when an updated master plan is in the offing Mccarty said the commission could not deny any property owner the right to petition for rezoning. When any property owner seeks to have Bis property retorted 1 simply place his name on the Agenda and the planning commission has the duty to consider the Mccarty explained. A wooded lot in South View addition just North of West 53rd Street and Between Southern drive and Pearl Street has once again been scheduled for planning commission action. The same tract of land has been petitioned before the commission on other occasions but no further action was taken Over neighbourhood opposition. Mccarty said the front portion of the land near 53rd Street is still intended for the construction of a furniture store. The major significance Between this and other petitions Mccarty noted is a sub division of single family dwellings planned for the Northern portion of the a proposal for an amendment to the present thoroughfare plan has been submitted by the Imperial Oil company for the redevelopment of land at the Northwest Corner of Nichol and Raible avenues. Imperial Oil co. Officials have expressed an interest to modernize the existing Gas station facility. According to Mccarty a problem could arise in this proposal because state Highway 32 begins at that Point and a canopy to be added to the station would impede the right of Way at the intersection. A rezoning request from Leo Dunn it sons to construct another building for truck sales at 1318 Alexandria Pike is also scheduled for commission action. The current facility at this location is set for non conforming use. Mccarty said he has seen similar requests go both ways in the past.1 he indicated there is no property to that Vicinity which is currently zoned for business which makes the proposal questionable.

Anderson level termed average Reading problems explored by Ted Tretter Herald staff writer american students Start Reading earlier than Ever before in school these Days. They study from scientifically designed Reading lexis. Their teachers know More about Reading problems than teachers did in the past. So. Why can t kids read we put this question to administrators and teachers at various Levels in the Anderson Community school system. Generally it appears Anderson students Are not any belter or worse than other american students. The curve is commented school attorney David Gotshall. We Are right on what would be the National this on the line comparison Only Means Anderson students Reading abilities Are going right Down the Chute along with the rest of the nation if we can believe statistical reports remedial Reading teacher at Anderson High school mrs. Karon teeters agrees with the National consensus of dropping ability. One reason she cites is Standard test scores. Standardized test scores Are Quile Low in some she admitted. But student intelligence is average or some persons Are convinced television is the major culprit. That if is pre Empting the time students used to spend Reading. There used to be a time when you would go Home and have a radio newspaper magazines and says school superintendent Harold Gallagher. If we were to go Home with of Nursery rhymes. Who in the world is Mother they Gotshall believes the National decrease May partly reflect a statistical phenomenon.

Many of my students have never Ever been read to when they were she stated. They never heard i think a part of the problem is we keep a lot More kids in school than we used he said. We have work study programs vocational training a lot of things we never had before. The students that May have dropped out before arc still in our schools and they Are poor the method of teaching Reading has been attacked by Many critics in my own opinion the problem with Reading began Many years ago when we abandoned the phonics says Highland High school principal Leonard Austin. Austin says sight Reading techniques left students to relate one word another. Several years ago Anderson schools Well Back to phonics again because they found that the sight learning method did not work he added. Gallagher feels phonics is important but pointed out that some children can read by sight and simply cannot learn phonetically. The present system in Anderson schools begins in kindergarten. There pupils get right Down to the business of Reading by learning a list of 15 Basic vocabulary words such As get go. In it and you. Which will be built on in higher Grade Levels. The Slough ten Mifflin Reading series used in the elementary schools is basically a phonetic approach but also combines sight Reading exercises. Kindergarten teachers can Tell you almost before they go to first Grade which ones Are going to do Well which ones will be average and those that Are going to have says Gallagher.
