On Tuesday, council's Law and Safety Committee approved the measure, introduced by Republican Jim Cissell, 3-2. Charterite Tyrone Yates abstained from the vote. Yates said he had not yet made up his mind on the issue. Cissell's plan, endorsed by the city's police department and numerous community groups, would make it illegal for minors to buy, own or carry a beeperpager without a signed parental consent. The law, if passed, "would provide police officers with another crucial tool to stop drug deals," Cissell said. Gloria Morgan of the East Price Hill Community Council agreed: "This would give more teeth for police to stamp out drugs." Police say the pagers are used by drug dealers and by young people seeking to imitate drug dealers. But Democrat Dwight Tillery, chairman of the Law and Safety Committee, said the proposal would not deter drug trafficking. He predicted Tuesday he would lobby the five votes necessary to defeat Cissell's measure before the full council. "I just don't think it's the solution," Tillery said. "Why put another law on the books for the police to enforce when it won't address the problem? We have a law against drug trafficking. That's the law that should be enforced." The law would be the first of its kind in a major U.S. city, Safety Director David Rager said in a report to council. VEERKAMP William H beloved husband of Catherine H.

BY DICK KIMMINS Enquirer Columbus Bureau COLUMBUS, Ohio New State Superintendent of Public Instruction Ted Sanders said Tuesday local schools must be allowed to experiment and occasionally fail in their quest for new ways to educate the state's children. In his first public appearance minutes after being sworn in by Ohio Supreme Court Chief Justice Thomas Moyer, Sanders said his priority is Ohio's urban schools. After his inaugural speech to the Buckeye Association of School Administrators, Sanders was welcomed by Gov. George Voinovich at a Statehouse reception. Voinovich, who engineered Sanders' selection by the Ohio School Board, praised the former assistant secretary of the U.S. Department of Education. "He is the orchestra leader," said Voinovich. "I'm on his team. I'm part of his orchestra, and whatever part he wants me to play, I'll play it." That part may be pushing the state's massive public education bureaucracy into change, including a shake-up of the Ohio Department of Education. Sanders said he did expect to rearrange the Columbus-based bureaucracy reportedly responsible for spending more state tax dollars than any other agency. Improvement of public education, Sanders said, must be engineered not in Washington, D.C., "but state by state, district by district, school by school. And that is why I am in Ohio with you today: back where the real action is." "The challenge is to find a way to bring quality education to the great urban centers of this country and this state. And that in itself is probably the most crucial piece of unfinished business of American education," he said. Ohio has some of the nation's most problem-filled schools, he said, citing poverty, drugs and unemployment rates. "Such schools must be our first order of business," he said. "Failure is an inevitable byproduct of freedom, but it also is the frequent forerunner of success," he said. "No school system that refuses to make allowances for honest failures can expect to promote successful innovation." To solve the problems of urban education, Sanders said, schools must mimic many Ohio corporations, "particularly their quest for quality." "I come with a set of experiences, most of them positive. My notebook is open; my pencil is sharpened; I'm willing to learn," he said. PATTERSON Dortha B wife of the late George A. Patterson, beloved mother of Richard C, Dr. Charles and J.

That has been collected with minimal effort, Kaiser said. The group, called UNITED Stop 195, stands for Unincorporated Neighborhoods Involved To Enhance Development. It hopes to raise $100,000 to get the airport to return to straight south departures from the old north-south runway. The hour long meeting was interrupted several times by the noise of the departing jets. For residents of Boone Air Estates, Fox Run, Oakbrook, Pleasant Valley, Spring Garden Estates and Timbercreek subdivisions, jet noise took off in January when the airport opened a second north-south runway. To keep a safe separation during simultaneous takeoffs from the parallel runways, the airport re-quires' flights taking off from the old runway to turn right 195" and over their homes. The new flight pattern brings increased noise ovef about 3,000 homes, Kaiser said. Welfare CONTINUED FROM PAGE B-l er." People who depend on general assistance are filled with fear for their survival, said Mike Fontana of the Greater Cincinnati Coalition for the Homeless. "The ones that I'm most concerned about are people in various drug and alcohol programs, who are using their checks to pay for recovery," Fontana said. "The threat to their income may knock them out of programs." Frank Hardnett said he must move out of Prospect House, a drug-treatment center in Price Hill, because his lowered benefits mean a choice between treatment and buying insulin for diabetes. "GA gave me a tool to help myself," Hardnett said. "It was the solution to the choice of going to a treatment center and not to jail. I didn't have the money to go into one of those fancy treatment centers." , "The governor (George Voinovich) needs to wake up and realize what he's doing and stop punishing the people," said Vietnam veteran Roger Zellars, who said general assistance helped him turn his life around. Checks CONTINUED FROM PAGE B-l dence in this body. Do this because, as the American public knows and is letting us know, it is the right thing to do." The General Accounting Office, Congress' audit arm, recently reported that lawmakers wrote 8,331 insufficient-fund checks between July, 1989, and June, 1990. During the last six months of that period, 581 of those checks were written by 134 members for $1,000 or more. The House bank covered all of the checks and charged no overdraft or interest fees. Last week, Speaker Thomas Foley, D-Wash., said names of lawmakers who wrote the checks would not be made public. He also said the bank no longer would cover bad checks. Boehner and six other freshman Republicans asked Foley on Thursday to disclose the offenders. A day later, Rep. Charles Luk- "A little over eight years ago, I was homeless and I was on GA for about six months," Zellars said. "I went into alcohol treatment, developed some stability and recovery, and found a job. I found out I was suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder. After being sober for two years, I went to work as a chemical-dependency counselor," Before marching to Fountain Square, the group gave speeches, held signs declaring the cuts inhumane and sang songs. At the square, the group stood in view of the Star Bank Center, where Ohio Senate President Stanley Aronoff's office is, and chanted, "Aronoff, restore our cuts." The senator was in Columbus and unavailable for comment, an office spokeswoman said. Cincinnati Councilman Tyrone Yates told those in the crowd they must do whatever it takes to stop the cuts, including petitioning, marches and camping on doorsteps. "The first line of attack has to be to try and get the Ohio General Assembly to reinstate the cuts," Yates said. "In George Bush's terms concerning Saddam Hussein, these GA cuts cannot stand." en, a Cincinnati Democrat and also a freshman, sent a letter to Foley with the same request. "What trust the public does have in the Congress is seriously jeopardized by this affair," Luken wrote. All Tristate lawmakers Boehner, Luken and Reps. Willis Gradison, R-Cincinnati; Bob Mc-Ewen, R-Hillsboro; Jim Bunning, R-Southgate, Ky.; and Lee Hamilton, D-Nashville, Ind. said they had not bounced any of the checks at the House bank. The inability of some House members to balance their checkbooks and the special privileges afforded them at the private House bank have angered constituents, Luken and Boehner said. "The joke at the football game Friday night was, 'Hey, Boehner, have you bounced any checks lately?' " said Boehner, who attended the game at Lakota High School in West Chester.
