Jenkins said that part of the financial problem is the funding system, in which about 60 of revenues are collected locally through taxes, and about 30 come from the state. She said she would prefer to keep the system as it is because, "that allows us the community to have local control." The problems in the district may only get solved with a new levy, Meranda said.

BY RICHARD LITHEN Enquirer Contributor Issues of growth and finances dominated a candidate's night Tuesday for four Batavia residents running for a seat on the school board. . The event was sponsored by the Batavia Parent-Teacher Organization. Incumbent Candace Koch is being challenged by three newcomers: Larry Elliot, Margaret Jenkins and Jeralyn Meranda. The school board faces problems of overcrowded classrooms and financial difficulties. More classroom space is needed now, Koch said. She said an advisory committee made up of parents, teachers and students should be formed to look at short- and long-term alternatives. Koch, who works as a paralegal, has been on the school board for eight years. She is married and has two children. Elliot called for a tiered approach to the problem. "(We) can't look at solving the shortage of classroom space overnight." NOW TWO GREAT LOCATIONS IN TRI-COUNTRY & FAIRFIELD Serving Hamilton and Butler Counties for 28 years.

She is also a past president of the Batavia PTO. Meranda said the board and the public must cooperate to solve the district's problems. She called for a series of town meetings, where parents can voice their concerns and offer suggestions. A lifelong resident of Batavia, Meranda works at the Social Security Administration. Unlike other government support systems, the school districts do not get cost-of-living increases, Koch said.

Marvin Thompson, city manager of Blue Ash, and Jon Bormet, city manager of Montgomery, said they would work with ODOT to solve the traffic flow problems at that location. They have been working on the problem for two years. ; Blue Ash wants a right lane from eastbound Pfeiffer Road to the southbound 1-71 entrance ramp and a new traffic light at . Pfeiffer. ' Montgomery, which owns the v property needed for the ramp, wants a third traffic light construc-: ted near the old Montgomery I Swim Club property entrance on ; Pfeiffer Road. Montgomery thinks that third ; traffic light is needed for future tenants so they can get to Pfeiffer Road from office buildings zoned for the former swim club property. ODOT needs a property easement from Montgomery before construction can begin on the new right ramp. .. . Blue Ash City Council already gave ODOT permission to use Blue Ash roads for its heavy equipment going to and from the site during construction, Thompson said. In 1990, Blue Ash offered to pay for the new ramp construction? But Montgomery held out for the third traffic light, so no decision was reached, Thompson said. Thompson said construction of the ramp could be completed next year if the two cities reach an agreement with ODOT soon.

Finding a diamond of this size is in itself a most exciting event. However, when it is determined to be a stone of top color and flawless quality, the finding becomes absolutely sensational. Of all of the diamonds in the world, this great flawless diamond is third in size only to the "Great Star of Africa" in the British imperial scepter, and the "Lesser Star of Africa" in the British imperial crown. Both of these diamonds were cut from the Cullinan, which was also found in the Premier mine in 1905. THE CENTENARY DIAMOND PART I At the G.I.A. Gem symposium held recently in Los Angeles, we were presented with an illustrated booklet from De Beers, which tells the story of the "Centenary" diamond. From this booklet, we present some highlights. The Centenary diamond, is so called, because it was discovered in 1986, the 100th year anniversary of "De Beers Consolidated Mines." It was found at the premier mine in South Africa. In its rough form This remarkable mine in the Transvaal east of Pretoria, not only has produced the 3 largest diamonds in the world, but almost 300 other gems larger than 100 carats, and a quarter of all of the world's diamonds larger than 400 carats. The Premier is the only diamond mine, which daily produces several diamonds larger than 10 carats. Since mining began here in 1903, some 300 million tons of ore have been processed to yield 90.5 million carats of diamonds.
