4B THE PALM BEACH POST TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 14, 1999 Teachers' union director says move sends mixed message to educators How much for smooth roads and ) top-notch utilities in Delray Beach? The older sections of the city need the most road and utility repairs. The map shows how much it would cost to fix all the roads, water pipes, sewers and storm drains in each quadrant of the city. Older areas east of 1-95 heed most road fixes if ilium UmmmUmm Boynton Beach j j j I'll j $2,600,673 1 I m $19,877,124 have employees who like to create trouble for me," she said. Elfers said Monday he wouldn't have done anything differently.

She wants Pretty-man's seat moved off the bulletproof dais and wants her to undergo psychological testing, something board members dismissed. . "I think we need to watch her very carefully,' Montgomery said. Board Chairwoman Sandra Richmond said she is exasperated by how much attention has been swallowed up by something that has so little impact on the, business of education. i "Let's face it: Two board members don't get along with the1 superintendent. Two board members don't get along with the general counsel. Let's call it even," she said. "I don't get along with a lot of these people. The bottom line is: We have got to work together to see what we can do to make this school world a better place for our children. "I'm kind of fed up with all this other junk. It's very destructive to our kids." PRETTY MAN From IB selves in their homes over the Labor Day weekend even though Prettyman was in Mexico on a scuba diving vacation. Prettyman told board members she never meant for any of this to happen. "I am sorry about the great embarrassment it may have caused the school district ... the board members . . . and myself," she said. "I will never make a similar comment again." All along, Prettyman maintained the investigation was orchestrated by Kelly and Superintendent Joan Kowal with whom she has clashed to get rid of her. Kelly defended the investigation last week, even though the evidence wasn't strong enough for a criminal case. Prettyman said Elfers was simply getting back at her for giving him a bad evaluation. Elfers denied that. "If s just a tragedy that we said. Since 1996, nine employees have been disciplined for making threats against others, though all of them made more direct threats than Prettyman. Van Ludy, executive director of the Classroom Teachers Association, said he thinks Monday's vote sends a mixed message to teachers who are supposed to evaluate the words of children. "If the chief legal counsel can make statements like that and is exonerated, then what could a kid say to a teacher that is any worse?" he said.

Candidates soon decried the dirt roads in the Southridge neighborhood, just north of Linton Boulevard and the crumbling streets in the city's mostly black neighborhoods east of Interstate 95. The public has indicated they want an accelerated improvement," Mayor Jay Alperin said. "We have to see what the costs are, what the improvements are, and see if we can get it done." ; Not surprisingly, the areas most in need of road and utility repairs are the city's older areas east of 1-95, the consultant's report found. The northeast section of the city needs $20 million in repairs and the southeast section $21 million. In contrast, everything west of Congress Avenue needs only about $4 million in work. ' If the city were to concentrate on repairing only the worst roads ROB BARGEStaff Artist Source: Professional Engineering Consultants of Orlando Dead man's DNA to be tested against fetus that use utility fees and taxes and don't require a vote. The last time voters approved a bond issue was 10 years ago, when they passed a $21.5 million bond issue for beautification of the city's downtown and public works projects. and the utilities beneath them, the cost for the northeast section would be $9.2 million and for the southeast section $6 million. Harden still hasn't decided whether to recommend bonds that use property taxes and require voter approval, or bonds St. Lucie plant sewage burned before blaze Examiner's Office drew blood from Elkins during an autopsy Saturday. Authorities will now try to match DNA with the nearly full-term fetus the woman had been carrying at the time of her death. That could take weeks, Edwards said. He acknowledged that the condition of the woman's body might make it impossible to match blood types. And police wondered aloud whether they would ever solve the mystery. ; "Even if the baby the woman was carrying was Elkins', that doesn't mean he killed her," Nassau County police Lt. Kevin Caslin said. "This case might remain open and inactive." The murder mystery was front-page news all over the island Monday. On Forest Drive, as they put out trash for the garbage collectors, people talked about the barrel that had been placed in the crawl space underneath a family room addition the Elkinses built 30 years earlier. "It's something that doesn't happen every day," said neighbor Ivan Fried. Then he looked toward the white clapboard and brick home Ronald Cohen recently sold to a man named Hamad Tafaghodi. There was a rusting metal rocker sitting stilled next to four garbage cans. Nearby, neighbor Lynn Gordonson had her hands on hips, staring at two suddenly suspect black plastic garbage bags piled on top of the Tafaghodi discards. "It all makes you want to check their trash," Gordonson said. She smiled, but she was only half-joking. ELKINS From IB rose Plastic Company, Edwards said. Elkins co-owned the Manhattan maker of plastic flowers and trees commonly used in department store displays. The business was sold in 1972 when the Elkins family moved to Hollywood. It has since shut down. Co-workers at Melrose Plastic told police that Elkins' mistress also had another child. There was banter around the office that the child might be his," Edwards said. That child would be 31 today, police speculated. They do not know the sex or identity of the child, or whether he or she lives today. Edwards and Detective Brian Parpan traveled to Palm Beach County on Wednesday to confront the 70-year-old Elkins with what they had found. The police met Elkins the next day at his home in the Crescent Lakes subdivision, east of Lyons Road. "We had a give-and-take for about an hour and a half," Edwards said. "We asked him if we could swab his mouth for DNA and he refused. We told him we would get a warrant. "Mr. Elkins said he had a lot to discuss with his wife and asked us for some time. We complied, and that is where we left it." The next afternoon Elkins took a new shotgun to the Barrister Drive home of a family friend and shot himself once in the head. Palm Beach County sheriffs reports list the death as a suicide. Edwards said the Palm Beach County Medical By Michael Van Sickler Palm Beach Post Staff Writer The treated sewage that investigators blame for igniting the Aug. 29 fire at the Lykes Agri-Sales fertilizer plant was also the $ource for smaller fires a few days before the blaze, according to a report by the state Fire Marshal's Office. ; "Some of the employees had seen small spots of fires in the bay toward the east side of the building," said Lt. Richard Schuler. "They were small and confined to small areas of the sludge, and the employees easily extinguished them." - But on Aug. 29 a Sunday there weren't any employees around to extinguish the fires, Schuler said. The resulting blaze eventually forced the evacuation of hundreds of people in a 1- The sludge is combustible and can ignite if it gets hot enough, said Schuler. Schuler said that usually the bins of sludge are separated by barriers that keep it from other combustible fertilizer ingredients. If the sewage does catch on fire, it will usually consume itself, he said. During the Aug. 29 blaze, three bins two containing sewage, one containing potassium nitrate caught fire at the east side of the building. After that burn was discovered, employees were sent to remove some of the other chemicals in the building. Workers also had to build a dike in the middle of the plant to prevent water containing overheated sludge to flow into some ammonium nitrate, where it could have caused an especially explosive situation. square-mile area around the plant west of Fort Pierce. Harry Costello, a spokesman for Lykes, said he's surprised that a report has been filed. The report's investigator, Gregory Gilkey, hasn't visited the facility or talked to any company officials, including plant manager Conrad Hardle, Costello said. Schuler said the report was based on interviews with fire district officials and the conversations they had with Lykes officials. Costello added that there's nothing out of the ordinary with sludge smoldering. "When you have sludge like that, it isn't uncommon for these areas to have little flares," Costello said. "They don't really see it as a fire. It just smolders and then they put it out" Area deaths St. Lucie County Cassis, Peter James, 77, of Port St. Lucie. Wallace & White Funeral Home, Stuart.
