LA County's juvenile hall has 10,000 kids in it right now, so think of the size of their juvenile hall school. Our juvenile hall has 42 beds, so we can have a maximum of 42 students enrolled in our school at one time," Kostas said. Breaking the barriers that prevent students from coming to school is one of the biggest challenges for educators at River Community School, who say attendance is always a big issue with these students. Gang fights have also been an issue at the school recently, though they are not normally a problem, Kostas said. "As for the fights ... we have students who have been expelled from Ukiah High for gang-related behaviors, and those students are generally enrolled at the River Community School," he said. "That is what our school is here for," he said. "It presents a challenge of keeping the peace between rival gang members," he added. But to meet that challenge, Kostas said a full-time probation officer works on campus, and the school also provides a lot of counseling and programs to minimize gang involvement and gang activity. "For example, the students that were involved in that fight two weeks ago, they were arrested, detained in juvenile hall, then suspended from school. On their return, we had parent conferences and the students were ordered into this counseling program called 'Making the Peace' to help them work through' their issues around gang violence," Kostas said. He also pointed out that gang fights on campus aren't common. "Here at River Community School... we have had about 120 days of school this year, and we have had three gang- related rights, so we've had about 117 good days. We don't want to lost sight of that; our teachers and students do a really tremendous job here working toward their education. "I can go into four or five businesses in Ukiah and see former students who are now in their early to late 20s that are holding down well-paying jobs and these were students who were referred to us by SARB or probation, when they were 14 years old," Kostas said. KZYX Fitch holds firm on California credit rating Associated Press SACRAMENTO — Although voters have approved a $15 billion bond deal to refinance the state's deficit, Fitch Ratings declined Friday to alter its negative opinion of California debt and held the state's credit rating at just above junk bond status, The Wall Street agency maintained its position even though Standard and Poors and Moody's Ratings both upgraded their outlooks on the state following Tuesday's election. But the adjusted outlook doesn't affect the state's credit rating, which helps determine the interest rate the state will pay to sell the bonds to investors. Fitch analyst Richard Raphael noted the $15 billion bond measure will provide Kidnap Continued from Page A-l the victim said he got Estrada to let him drive to»Safeway, where he called 911 and told police Estrada was hiding in his car. Estrada was arrested on suspicion of evading police in a vehicle, kidnapping, kidnapping while carjacking, carjacking, resisting or delaying an officer and violation of parole. The victim asked that his name not be used because he was afraid of reprisal by people associated with Estrada, who police said is a prison gang member. The victim said he returned to Quest Mart to complain about what had happened earlier. "Any person who refuses to let someone call 911 when they're in trouble is a coward in my book," he said. enough money to head off a potential cash crisis looming in June when short-term loans come due, but won't fix the state's ongoing spending imbalance that created the deficit. Until lawmakers either raise taxes or cut spending, he said. Fitch will likely remain cautious about future investment in California bonds. Even after the state pays off its existing $9 billion deficit, the Legislature and Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger face the task of closing another shortfall of $17 billion next year. Schwarzenegger has proposed using most of the $15 billion bond over the next two years to pay down the deficit but he wants to also impose deep spending cuts and other one-time savings. Democrats* who control the Legislature, woujd like to consider some tax 'increases instead.

The resolution also noted that the new studio would "add an active, contributing member to the Ukiah business community" and that it would "allow broadcasts of local cultural, civic and sporting events such as symphony and theater, meetings and political debates, and high school and college games to Ukiah-area listeners." Mendocino County Public Broadcasting is a non-commercial station that is partially funded with tax dollars and cannot advocate economic gain for any particular business but can be a vehicle for making people aware of what is available locally. It is not to compete with commercial stations but fill voids by broadcasting programs about public affairs, public meetings, campaigns/elections, debates, access to public officials, informational forums as well as cultural entertainment ranging from live broadcasts of local talent to anything else worthy of coverage. The Ukiah-based KZYX station would add to the current programming now aired and perhaps in some cases supplant those programs by airing concerns of the inland area on its own frequency (91.5 FM) while listeners on the other frequency (90.7 FM for Anderson Valley and the coastal areas) would have their choice. nature Theatres UKIAH 6 ; I.IL' S.
