Educators who applied for a grant, then were told by telephone that the program was canceled, also are disappointed. "It's hurting our children and it's hurting our country," said Janice Horetski, a teacher at Mesa Verde Elementary School in Tucson, who applied for $3,600 from the fund. "Children need hands-on experience outside the classroom," she said. "They also need facts ... to be prepared for the real world." Grant applicant Terry Downey, assistant superintendent of Cata-lina Foothills Public Schools, said: "Targeted grants would have improved environmental education offerings widely in Arizona." She said her application sought $43,000 for the first year of a three-year effort to create an environmental education curriculum for kindergarten through high school years - one that could be used statewide. "We wanted a program of real-world study in which children in the early grades would collect data that could be analyzed by students in the later grades," Downey gaicLY The district intended to use $12,000 of its own? resources on the first-year efforiihe added.

With the department's help, four environmental education resource centers were set up, Redman said. The centers are in Tucson, No-gales, Tempe and Flagstaff. They received just $2,000 each from the license-plate fund. "We really just got started last fall," said Beth LaRoche-Walkup, head of Tucson Resources for Environmental Education, at the Tucson Children's Museum downtown. She said the center provides books, show-and-tell materials, pamphlets, films and videos -and sponsors teacher workshops. "We've had a tremendous response from area educators," she said. Graham said she opposes the direct state involvement that the environmental resource centers represent. "The money belongs to the districts - our job just is to provide technical assistance," she said. "The knowledge of how to use the money exists at the school and district levels." She said a legislative study committee reviewed former superintendent Bishop's environmental education materials. "They did not meet its criteria," she said. In part because of the study committee's work, two bills striking out the requirement that schools provide environmental education have passed the House and Senate. "Environmental education should be part of all health and science curricula, without a state mandate," Graham said. "My of the Green Valley News for about five years until 1992.

The case gives the Supreme Court an opportunity to revisit -and perhaps expand - its 10-year-old decision giving public school officials greater leeway to search students than police are allowed. There is little question schools throughout the nation have reason to worry about drugs. The most recent study, completed by the University of Michigan in 1994 for the National Institutes of Health, showed that drug use by high school students, which had been tapering off for almost a decade, is on the rise again. One in three high school seniors and one in four sophomores said they smoked marijuana at least once within the past year. In 1991, when James Acton, a 12-year-old seventh-grader, decided to try out for the football team, his non-conformist parents, Wayne and Judy Acton, refused to sign a drug-testing consent form for their son. Instead, they challenged the testing program in a suit financed by the American Civil Liberties Union. "We didn't think we had to prove he wasn't taking drugs," said Judy Acton, 41. "And what kind of citizens will our children be if they become accustomed to authoritarian restraints on their behavior?" Wayne Acton said. In the view of Randall Ault-man, the principal when drug testing was begun, the school district ran out of options after seeing that speakers, seminars and dramas about the dangers of drug abuse did little good. The school district's officials and lawyers decided to focus the testing on athletes "because we were afraid we'd be sued to hell if we went to all students," Ault-man said. By limiting the testing, stressing athletic safety and keeping At- i . . ........... n j 1994 Star photo "Environmental education should be part of all health and science curricula, without a state mandate. My preference is to take the law off the books." Lisa Graham State schools superintendent preference is to take, the law off the books." The actions reflect a philosophical rift between those advocating a greater business and industry role in educating children and those who believe taxpayers should fund public education directly. Advisory council member Terry Hudgins, manager of environmental initiatives for Arizona Public Service Co., espouses the business view. "Corporations and their organizations want the same degree Talmage Pomeroy, 73, dies; taught science at Amphi High Talmage Emerson Pomeroy, a physics and chemistry teacher at Amphitheater High School for 33 years, died in his home in Patagonia on Friday. He was 73. Pomeroy, a 1949 graduate of Arizona State University who later received a master's, in education from the University of Arizona, died after a two-month battle with kidney and heart problems, said his wife, Bemice Pomeroy. The Mesa native taught at Amphitheater High School from 1949 until 1982, when he retired and moved to Patagonia. In addition to his wife, Pomeroy is survived by a son, Bob Pomeroy of Bisbee; daughters Mary Anne Fulton of Savannah, Ga., Ruth Frost of Snow-flake, and Xita Pomeroy of Los Ange the intrusion into personal privacy to a minimum, the district's lawyers hoped to meet the requirements of the Fourth Amend-, ment's ban on unreasonable searches. The tests at Vernonia required boys and girls to produce urine specimens in cups while monitors remained a circumspect 12-15 feet away and listened for sounds of urination. A laboratory screened the specimens for amphetamines, cocaine, marijuana and LSD. During the district's 4!2 years of testing, Aultman said, 400 to 500 students were tested and "about a dozen had positive results." All successfully completed counseling or treatment programs, he said, and only one student quit a team because "he knew he couldn't pass a drug test." The school district won the first round against the Actons when U.S. District Judge Malcolm Marsh of Portland found drug testing justified. On appeal, though, a federal panel led by Circuit Judge Ferdinand Fernandez of Pasadena, Calif., disagreed and stopped Vernonia's testing program in May 1994. Fernandez concluded that the town's drug problem was not sufficiently compelling to outweigh the students' expectations of privacy. That ruling conflicts with a 1988 appeals court decision that upheld random drug testing J of interscholastic athletes and cheerleaders at two high schools in Tippecanoe County in northwestern Indiana. As a result, random drug testing in public schools is barred in nine western states but permitted in Indiana, Illinois and Wisconsin. The Supreme Court did endorse a relaxed search rule in the 1985 case of a 14-year-old high school girl from Piscataway, N.J. To enable school officials to preserve order, the justices ruled, school searches, unlike police searches, did not require either a warrant or "probable cause" to believe a crime was committed. of access to the school systems" as the state, Hudgins said. "The school systems are in need of materials we can supply," Hudgins said. "There's an audience out there, and we need to educate the public to make the right decisions." He said the corporate community is concerned about public schools' environmental education efforts so far. "There's a perceived imbalance in what is presented to students," he said. "We've seen en-vironmentalism taught as an extreme position - as a Mother Earth kind of concept." Corporations instead want teachers to show how environ-mentalism can "interact" with business and industry "for the net gain of all," Hudgins said. Former U.S. Rep. Karan English of Flagstaff, who sponsored the law when she was a Democratic state senator, disagrees. "Health and science programs in our schools generally do not offer environmental education," she said. "The educational community has not turned out the kind of scientists we need for a healthy world." English said the attack on environmental education "is part of a movement afoot to control issues by keeping information away from people." "And it's being done to protect special interests," she said. "In this case, they fear that people's knowledge of the environment might have an impact on the way their business is done." les; six grandchildren and a great-granddaughter. .
