! (SI D 4 ' THE COURIER-JOURNAL, TDE5DAY, DECEMBER 12, 1989 Motorists urged to turn on headlights as move against drunken driving By MIKE BROWN Staff Writer WASHINGTON U. S. Sen. Mitch McConnell yesterday urged motorists to turn on their headlights on New Year's Eve afternoon to help combat drunken driving, but a Southern Baptist official said stronger action is needed. Robert M. Parham, associate director of the Southern Baptist Convention agency that deals with social Issues, called for legislation to increase the federal liquor tax and restrict alcoholic beverage advertising. . . . McConnell, Parham and Sgt Lee Williams, the Radcliff man whose family was killed in the 1988 Carroll County church-bus crash, spoke to reporters on Capitol Hill after a ceremony at which President Bush declared this week National Drunk and Drugged Driving Awareness Week. McConnell arranged yesterday's speeches with Sandy Golden, a Washington-area resident who heads an effort called Campaign Against Drunk Driving. McConnell recounted the Kentucky accident in which 27 people died after their bus was hit by a pickup driven by Larry Mahoney, who is accused of driving drunk on the wrong side of Interstate 71. "We need to say today: No more Carrolltons. No more deaths from drunk driving,'' McConnell said. As a reminder not to drink and drive and also as a memorial to drunken-driving victims, the Kentucky Republican urged Americans to drive with their headlights on between noon and 3 p.m. on the last Eastern Kentucky school to serve needs of dyslexics Associated Press HINDMAN, Ky. A full-time school for dyslexics will help solve a learning problem that many Eastern Kentucky public schools are not equipped to handle, a school official said. ' Few teachers in the region have been trained to recognize or teach dyslexics. Consequently, educators sometimes blame dyslexic students' learning problems on laziness or lack of intelligence, said Michael Mullins, Hindman Settlement School director. The school currently runs after- school programs for dyslexic students' in seven Eastern Kentucky counties. On Saturday, it will conduct a ground-breaking ceremony for the full-time school The school plans to convert an old library in Hindman into as many as 14 classrooms, offices and a computer center. The new school, known as the East Kentucky Tutorial Program, is expected to open in the fall and accommodate 20 to 25 students in first through eighth grades. The renovation will cost $300,000 and is being paid for with donations from private foundations and individuals. Many dyslexic students become frustrated and drop out of school as soon as they can. Mullins said he hoped public schools would work to recognize the problems of dyslexic students and refer them to the new school. "This Is a dropout-prevention pro gram," Mullins said. "We're talking about saving children's lives." Annual tuition will be $2,500 to $3,000. Mullins said he had talked to a numDer oi scnoois mat nave said they might pay part of the tuition with tax dollars. Dyslexia affects perception. Al though it is difficult to diagnose, ex perts think that as many as 15 per cent of Americans have the disabil ity to some degree. Dyslexics are generally of normal or aDOve-averaee intelligence Dut of ten have trouble oerceivine sounds. letters and imaees. For instance. dyslexics often reverse the order of Group that filed to talk strateev. The Frankfort Bureau FRANKFORT, Ky.

The council, which represents about 70 oroDertv-DOor school dis tricts, has hired Alexander to helD it make its case to the Task Force on Education Reform, the leeislative- execuuve oanel that is soearheadine the school-reform effort Moreland, who is superintendent of the Davton Indeoendent School District, says the task force has lost day of the year. Borrowing Bush's campaign phrase, McConnell said It will be "millions of points of light, reaching out to save lives." Parham, who spoke after McConnell, said government action is needed to make highways safer. "If drunken driving is a national crisis, we must take steps beyond turning on headlights," he said later In an interview. McConnell, who is a member of a Southern Baptist church In Louisville, acknowledged in an interview that he opposes increasing liquor taxes or restricting advertising. . But be suggested that total agreement among everyone Interested In stopping drunken driving can't be expected. Williams, whose wife and two daughters were killed in the bus crash, faulted Kentucky Judges for not giving tougher penalties to drunken drivers. Williams, Golden and other speakers praised McConnell for helping to bring the drunken-driving issue to Bush's attention. The president, appearing earlier at a ceremony in the Old Executive Office Building next to the White House, called drunken driving "a national crisis" and thanked activists for their efforts to reduce the death toll Williams said he was introduced to Bush at the ceremony and that the president "just told me how sorry he was." McConnell later acknowledged the efforts of Marsha Woodward of Scottsville, who circulated a petition urging Bush to declare drunken driving a national crisis. letters and numbers, confusing b for d or 18 for 81. There are only two full-time schools for dyslexics in the state: The de Paul School in Louisville and the Charles L. Shedd APSL Research Academy in Mayfield. The need for such a program in Eastern Kentucky was evident last week as parents of dyslexic students helped screen about a dozen children for dyslexia. Amelia Shanley of Paintsville spent much of a morning filling out a questionnaire about her son Greg, 15, a sophomore at Paintsville High School. Shanley said her son worked very hard at school but had trouble spelling and taking tests. If he proves to be dyslexic, she plans to enroll him in the Settlement School's after-school program in Prestonsburg and consider full-time enrollment in the new school. The Hindman Settlement School is a private, non-profit corporation established in 1902 to provide a variety of services, including health and education, that are not met by other institutions. Hindman, a non-traditional school, conducts few classes at its existing building in Hindman and has no formal student body. Instead, its teachers rove the counties in bookmobiles and teach art and music in county public schools. The school's interest in education for dyslexics began 10 years ago when Lois Weinberg, a Knott County parent, asked to use some of the school's classrooms to teach her son, Jed, and several other dyslexic children. Weinberg was trained as a teacher of dyslexics and had grown tired of driving her son to the nearest after-school class which was in Georgetown. The informal classes developed into a program that has branches in Floyd, Letcher, Pike, Pulaski, Madison and Perry counties. Weinberg, daughter of former Gov. Bert T. Combs, said she was glad to see Eastern Kentuckians fulfilling their own educational needs. "People don't ordinarily look to Eastern Kentucky for leadership in education," she said. school suit seek members sight of the core issues In a state Supreme Court ruling that declared the public school system unconstitutional. He said school superintendents and board members of school districts that are not yet council members are invited to attend Friday's meeting and join. The court's finding that all Kentucky school districts provide an inadequate education gives all the districts, regardless of their wealth, grounds for a common cause, he said. Moreland also said the council will discuss membership dues. The group has spent nearly all of the $82,000 it raised about five years ago through an original assessment of 50 cents per child in the member districts, he said. "That's pretty cheap, when you consider the magnitude of what we did," he said. ALBANY Jasper Earl York, 85, died Sunday in Louisville. His wife, Cytha, survives.
