Page 2 Pharos-Tnbune, Logansport, Indiana, Tuesday, March 15, 198,8 Henson Continued From Page 1 Superintendent David McKee were aware of his intentions, but the three decided to wait until after the basketball season's conclusion before making any announcement. "I had bascially made my decision coming into the year," Henson said this morning. "I had written my resignation before any of this (about the petition) came out." Henson's first team at Caston, in 1983-84, tied with Carroll for the Midwest Conference championship. The Comets won the title outright the following season, but have fallen on hard times the last, two years, School — Continued From Page 1 studied the elementary school situation, he felt it was imperative to use the new Columbia facility as much as possible even if it required the closing of an older building. Kain said he also noted that Franklin Elementary was overcrowded to the point that music and art rooms were used for regular classrooms. The proposal also calls for transferring 83 students, all of whom will be from the attendance areas formerly served by the McKinley, from Franklin to Columbia. The move would decrease Franklin's enrollment from 527 to 444 and free up two additional classrooms. Columbia's elementary enrollment would increase from 137 to 367, making Columbia a school with three classes for each grade from kindergarten through fifth grade. Students who live north of Northern Avenue, west of Mount Hope Cemetery to Dykeman Park, and east of Michigan Avenue to Chase Park would be transferred from Franklin to Columbia. All students in the old McKinley Elementary School district would be bused into Columbia. The proposal, Kain said, not oiiiy relieves overcrowding, but will create a three-section elementary school with two kindergarten classrooms, three Step-Up classrooms, and three Gifted and Talented classrooms. "The building will also provide special areas for art, music, physical education, library services and special education," Kain said. "The proposal does not re- Obituaries finishing 3-18 this past season, after a 3-2 start. Prior to coming to Caston, Henson was the assistant coach at North Miami High School for five years. Before that, he served five years as the head coach of L&M High School in Lyons, Ind. Henson added about the petition, which questioned his treatment of student-athletes and his tactics, "Those petitions were a day late and a dollar short." He also said there is a "long story" behind the petition, contending it primarily involved one family, but did not elaborate. Henson lives at Rt. 1, Macy, with his wife and their four children. Rueal B. Tate quire the transfer of the Franklin staff to Columbia, and provides familiar faces in the new building for students from the closed Longfellow building," Kain said. "All of the transferred students will be provided bus transportation to Columbia, and will continue to feed into Columbia Middle School." Kain said he met with Longfellow staff Monday afternoon about the proposal. "They accepted it and are looking forward to the transfer," Kain said. "Longfellow is fifty years old, and has just simply outlived its value as a school in today's environment." The board will review Kain's proposal and give its decision within the month. The board approved several recommendations for the Gifted and Talented program, all of which were proposed by director Dr. Lynn Erb, and presented to the board by Kain. In an attempt to provide greater opportunities for talented elementary students, Erb proposed housing the program at Columbia, involving fewer students in the program, increasing the time spent in pull-out classes from one half day to two half days, and adding additional staff. In other business, the board: •Approved additional appropriation of $50,000 from the Cumulative Building Fund to the Columbia Elementary/Middle School project for furniture and equipment. •Approved to employ ATEC Environmental Services, Indianapolis, to administer the Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act asbestos inspection.

(AP) - An Indiana woman and her hitchhiking companion killed a Columbia, Mo. man after he demanded sexual favors from the woman in exchange for a ride to California, a prosecutor said Monday. Sandra Hamilton, 21, of Peru, Ind., should be convicted of first-degree murder in the death of John R. Stacy, prosecutor Bill Ossmann said in opening arguments. "Ladies, when this case is finished, you will find for the first time in your life (that) you've been sitting face-to-face with a murderer," Ossmann told the 12-woman jury. Defense attorney Al Bandy warned the jurors not to form first impressions on the basis of Ossmann's statements. Bandy said Hamilton knows things about the case that are not known to investigators, but he refused to elaborate. Bandy said Stacy had know- ingly picked up the hitchhikers to use his car to gain sexual favors from Hamilton. "He used their poverty. He used their road-weariness," Bandy said. Hamilton is also charged with aggravated robbery in the June 27 death of Stacy in a Topeka hotel room. Her companion, James N. White, 20, of Peru, had been convicted earlier of first-degree murder, conspiracy to commit first-degree murder and aggravated robbery. He is to be sentenced Friday. Ossmann said Stacy met Hamilton and White at a Columbia restaurant on June 26. He bought them breakfast, let them shower and eat at his mobile home, took $300 from his bank account and set off with them for California. The three stopped in a Topeka hotel, where Stacy demanded sexual favors from Hamilton, Ossmann said.

Stocks NEW YORK (AP) — The stock market was little changed today In early trading. The Dow Jones average of 30 Industrials rose 0.16 point to 2,050.23 In the first half hour of trading. Walden— Continued From Page 1 "The trigger effect causes a person to react to a current violent situation coupled with the intensity of the last violent incident," Taylor said. "This causes a double or triple effect in the person's mind." Taylor testified that Vaughn suffered from his disorder most acutely when he heard the first shot on June 23 and also may have suffered some memory loss. Taylor further testified that, as with all domestic violence cases, there is a recipient of the violence and an abuser. The abuser, she said, has all the power, is possessive, threatens the recipient, and will often times isolate themselves from partner and family. The recipient, she said, adjusts to the violence in order to assimilate and survive. "Consequently, the violence escalates ; to where it is out of control and' lethal." > Taylor's testimony continued throughout the morning. Vaughn appeared in court today wearing a sport jacket and tie.
