Transportation fund increased up comb. $195,183.1970 building totals lag behind 1969 the latest report issued by the building department indicates that while february 1970 the drive a reformer has been defined from time to time some of our readers ask As a person who does t want Why the names of juveniles who have been picked his uhen vet do things he up by police appear in the columns of the Tribune. A a a it is a Good question. Generally speaking older it s a Safe bet that some of residents know Why but newcomers Are evidently because Quot s Don t wit n0t act Luain Ted with the p�1 of this paper which dates Back Many years. It was in 1961 following an incident Here that we wrote an editorial entitled Quot where we draw the since that time we have reprinted it. From that editorial which established a fair and definite Standard we quote the following paragraphs we do not believe that a Community newspaper should display lurid headlines or play up unfortunate incidents but we do believe we should print the True happenings of our City if Only to dispel gossip by reporting facts. We believe in anonymity up to a certain Point. But when some ill advised or misguided youth is involved in the destruction of Public or private property or is a party to the impairment of the life or health of any person then we draw the line. There have been times when we have turned our Heads because we have been thinking of families. We have been thinking of kids whom we hoped would see the error of their ways and turn Over a new Leaf. Unfortunately some of these hellions came right Back bragging because they got away with it. Now we re through. We shall print the names of All youths 18 years old and also those under 18 if they have a prior record in our police department. This applies to those charged with malicious destruction of private or Public property or those accused of impairing the life and health of our residents. From Here on if aberrant persons do not wish to see their names on the wrong Side of the Ledger they should watch what they Are doing. After All Law enforcement officers Are paid to do their duty and besides the police blotter is open to the press. Reprinted irom issues of August 3, 1961 and August 17, 1967 you the Reader will undoubtedly agree that such a program should deter the youth of our Community from doing something Over the tics because they Don t want their records examined.

Bradford Crow Nick Ugrin and Daken Broadhead casting affirmative votes were mrs. J. Terry Maxwell and l. Sherman Telleen Board president. The decision came after two months of heated debate on the Issue both in and out of Board meetings. Letters received by Board members were reported to be in excess of 100 with citizens expressing viewpoints on both sides of the question. The original plan As presented two months ago by or. Kenneth Bullock High school principal provided that classes would meet for 55 minutes As they do now but Only four times a week. Teachers would be teaching no More hours but they would have one More class. With each class in session four Days a week instead of five the schedule would allow the Opportunity for students who wish to take another class or a Quot seventh Quot period. According to or. Bullock and the administration the plan would accomplish the two primary objectives of reducing class size and providing a greater variety of available electives. Alternative plan As one of the main objections to the Bullock proposal was the reduction of actual class time by 20 percent Board member Nick Ugrin came up with an alternative proposal two weeks ago. Termed a combined five and four Day schedule Ugrin s plan provided a five Day per week schedule for required academic subjects at the freshman Sophomore and Junior Levels and a four Day per week schedule for All other courses. A third proposal was submitted by Jerry Knudson a local resident calling for classes to meet five times a week but with periods shortened to 45 or 50 minutes. Teachers would teach one More class than they do now or 30 classes rather than 24 or 25. Teachers in response to both the Ugrin plan and the one proposed by Knudson or. Bullock reported tuesday night that the teachers had expressed disapproval based on the irregularities in teaching schedules that would be unavoidable in the Ugrin plan and the additional class Load that would be present in the Knudson plan. Prior to taking the vote each Board member gave a Brief statement. Broadhead mrs. Crow and Ugrin each gave the 20 percent reduction in class time As a primary reason for their negative votes. In addition Ugrin said that we cannot improve upon the present level of Quality education by making a Model Quot of the entire student body of the High school to conduct an Experiment in he said he was unwilling to try the proposed plan for a few years and then return to the present system if the seven period schedule is not a Success for in the process the education of a four year Cycle of High school students might be seriously impaired. Ugrin concluded by recommending that Quot we plan for improvements on a Broad basis that results in change in the right direction Quot not change for the Sake of Daken Broadhead told those present at the meeting that As a trustee he had the responsibility of appraising the proposal in Quot the Light of All future developments including the possibilities of How it will affect the he said that he understood that Many of the teachers had indicated a willingness to teach additional courses. Further he said Quot once they assume the new schedule i5 it not logical that they May ask to be paid additional compensation for added responsibility if this situation did develop the school District would be faced with ways and Means of finding adequate funds to meet these demands which May not be possible other than through increased mrs.
