EQUAL OPPORTUNITY
May 15, 1999
To the editor: As the parents of sixth-grade Centennial School students, we wish to bring attention to the fact our school needs more students while other schools are completely over-crowded. Centennial kids have been bused for more than 20 years. It has been a great convenience most of the time to have the kids picked up and delivered right to, or within a block of, their homes. We know when they leave and when they get home. We very much feel like part of the school even though it is not in our neighborhood. Being bused is a way of life for us and has not negatively affected our family. Busing and boundary changes seem to be the only solution to properly allocate students to eliminate over- and under-crowded schools. During the past seven years, our enrollment has dropped by approximately 100 students. This is a result of neighborhoods being eliminated from our school: boundary changes and the opening of Sunflower School. In addition to this is the recent news that another Centennial “neighborhood,” Gaslight Village, may possibly be eliminated, which will cause further reduction of students. Teachers and programs have been lost as our population declines This is a negative effect to the students, and they deserve the best. The school board has made a decision to have Centennial School remain open. They have an obligation to provide equal opportunities to students who are in fully populated schools. We have a great school with great staff, students and parents. We want the school to live and thrive and deserve a commitment from the school board to make this happen.

MOTIVES
May 15, 1999
Once again, the actions of President Clinton and his advisers are questionable. There is a big danger in getting one’s needle stuck when writing or talking about any subject. Oftentimes, it is best to walk away from a given matter. But try as one might, there are situations that almost are impossible to ignore or to look the other way.
THE CHINA SYNDROME
May 15, 1999
Will the Chinese leadership be able to put its demonstration genie back into the bottle? There is no way to atone totally for the mistaken NATO bombing of the Chinese Embassy in Belgrade. No apologies and reparations can fully compensate for the damage and deaths that resulted or for the tarnishing of the American image because of the ghastly error.

25 YEARS AGO
May 15, 1999
IN 1974 The actual cash position of Lawrence Memorial Hospital apparently was nearly $224,000 below what was believed to be the case after the 1973 year-end report. An official audit made public indicated the hospital ended the year with a revenue deficit of $9,604 as opposed to a previously announced surplus of $214,275.05. The board of trustees was carefully studying the situation with an eye to changes that could alter financial strategies and abolish the gap.

To the editor: I am very concerned at the portrayal in a recent letter to the editor by our new school board member, Scott Morgan, of the whole collaboration time issue as one of parents versus teachers.

My kids attend Cordley Elementary, where teacher collaboration time was implemented in 1993.

S BE REALISTIC ABOUT RELATIONS WITH CHINA
May 15, 1999
NATO says it will rain tens of thousands of rockets, bombs and shells on Serbia if they are needed to win the Kosovo War. But none of those deadly munitions is likely to have greater strategic consequence than the misguided missile that destroyed the Chinese Embassy in Belgrade last week. The air-launched U.S. rocket blasted a final gaping hole in the shaky foundation of the “strategic partnership” that President Clinton has sought to construct with China’s Jiang Zemin. Jiang’s refusal to take a call from an apologetic Clinton over their symbolic “hot line” underlines the fragility of that overly personalized attempt to reconcile two historic and political adversaries.
