The Sharon architectural firm had been directed to prepare cost estimates for adding from two to four permanent classrooms to each school. Each building currently has four modular classrooms that are separate from the schools. HHSDR on Monday presented six renovation proposals ranging in cost from $3.8 million to $12 million. The lowest-cost option included retaining the modular classrooms in what was described as a "bare-bones" project to repair the roofs, replace the heating and air conditioning systems and to provide other basic improvements to the two schools. The lowest-cost proposal would not qualify for state reimbursements on improving the Saltsburg schools. However, the lower costs would enable the district to com- Professor researches Singapore crime rate IUP News Service A 2003 University Senate Research Award allowed an Indiana University of Pennsylvania criminology professor to do research on crime in Singapore. Dr. Timothy Austin, who teaches comparative justice and theo- ritical criminology at IUP, spent ' last summer in Singapore in an attempt to uncover how a low crime rate is maintained there. With almost 90 percent of the population living in high-rise apartment blocks, Austin studied the relationship the island residents had with police'in order control the crime rate. "Most of our theories suggest they would have interpersonal conflicts," Austin said. Through research, Austin found that the average Singaporean's ability to maintain harmony with local police hinges on neighborhood police posts inside high-rise apartments .and residence committees, similar to neighborhood watch groups in the United States. There is "a very close connection between the people and police," Austin said. The people had "informal justice" for minor crimes and disagreements. "There's no need to call the police, because you peacefully deal with your own problems." Austin also discovered the edge electronics is giving police in Singapore. In his interviews with police, he discovered some of the posts had' been converted into electronic centers for reporting crime to police. Instead of having a physical police presence, there are communications devices that allow the people to quickly contact police. Another factor contributing to the low crime rate in Singapore is that all males must serve two years in the armed forces at age 18 and 10 years in the armed forces reserves. And finally, Austin concluded, "They're on an island. What can they do? They can't run and hide." Austin hopes to continue his research next summer and eventually publish a research paper or book on the subject. AFSCME meeting set Local 763 of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees at Indiana University of Pennsylvania will hold its regular monthly meeting Monday at 7 p.m. in the Allegheny room of the Hadley Union Building on campus. Blair-Sal School District bine the cost of the Saltsburg project with the balance of a loan for the building program in the 1990s in Blairsville and pay off both building projects by 2016. Paul Bell of Blairsville, board president, said the bare-bones project would enable the district to get out of debt and give future school boards a chance to consider a consolidation of the high schools if that is needed because of declining enrollment, which is expected to drop by 100 students. F. Daniel McGregor of Saltsburg said the board should provide the same type of facilities, regardless of the projected decline in enrollment, for students in the Saltsburg attendance area as in Blairsville. After about two hours of discussion, the board directed HHSDR to present more options for the Saltsburg schools at the next workshop meeting at 6 p.m. Oct. 13 in the Blairsville Middle- Senior High School. In a move to pay bills until a state budget with the basic edu- DON'T FORGET TO VOTE IN THE GAZETTE'S ONLINE READERS POLL cation subsidy is passed, the board voted to seek quotes for a $2.5 million loan. Cathy Rodgers, business manager, said the loan could be needed in November if the state reimbursements for basic education are not received in October. To date, Rodgers said, the district has been using current tax receipts and a carryover balance from the 2002-2003 budget to pay for school district operations. She said the district is due about a $1 million reimbursement in October. In other action, the board accepted the resignation of John Drahnak of Northern Cambria as supervisor of building and grounds. Drahnak is retiring after six years of service to the district. H. Patrick Rosborough of Blairsville was hired to succeed Drahnak at a starting salary of $37,452. The board also approved the appointments of the following as student representatives on the school board: Clint Shinsky, Grade 12, and Lance Cariss, Grade 11, both of Saltsburg High School; and Eli Tomb, Grade 12, and Elise Auvil, Grade 11, both of Blairsville High School.
