The Salina School Board decided Tuesday it wants to know more about them. Plus, the board wants to look at school safety and discipline, building needs, technology and how it could help advisory councils at the schools. Meanwhile, the board plans to actively promote fair funding for public schools in Salina by lobbying the Kansas Legislature and seeking help from the community. Those areas were among issues the board talked about as goals for the 1996-97 school year at an informal goal-setting session Tuesday. The board will work for equitable funding for the district by learning how to lobby legislators and cooperating with other school boards with common interests. But the focus won't be just on local legislators. "Our local legislators listen to us," said board member Jerry Lundgrin. Don Lamb Salina School board member Ask Me For A Free Hearing Tesf 21 Alan Grigsby Years Experience HEARING AIDS 827-8911 1.800-448-0215 234 S. Santa Fe Salina "We need to work as a group with other districts about the same size to influence other legislators," said board member Don Lamb. The board should encourage others in the community to lobby legislators, Lamb said. Members of school site councils, groups of community representatives who advise the schools, also could work to influence legislators. "This is a crucial time and we do not have the power on funding issues," said board member Joni Heim. "That is the authority of the Legislature and state board (of education)." Another board goal was to improve communication and advocacy for public education. The board plans to do that by: • Strengthening the role of advisory site councils by giving them more power in decisions affecting schools. • Enhancing board members' roles in the schools, in the community and outside the community. • Developing leadership for school involvement in the community. • Using electronic media such as better using Cable Access televising of school board meetings. Magnet schools Lundgrin raised the issue of magnet schools, saying it was time the board considered the concept. A magnet school is a school that focuses on a theme or specializes in an area. For example, a school could specialize in science and math and another in fine arts. That doesn't mean the schools would not teach math or have fine arts. But those areas would be the central focus. "May be it would not work for us, but we need to look at it," said board member Larry Mathews. "It is something we would have never thought about if there wasn't unequal distribution of students in the district," Lamb said. Schools such as Hageman and Franklin, in south and central Salina, are full and require additional classrooms, while other schools such as north Salina's Hawthorne aren't crowded. "We need to make the best use of the schools, or the public will not buy into the needs we have for new facilities," Lamb said. The board agreed to have a series of workshops on regular school board meeting days to discuss issues such as magnet schools, buildings, school safety and the role of site councils. Site council members will be invited. The information will help the board make decisions after it hears recommendations from the long- range planning process called "Creating the Future." Recommendations for the plan are expected to be presented early next year. The board also wants to have a meeting with site council representatives to discuss important education issues for the election in November and the school board elections next April. Teachers and others involved in the schools will be invited. *• Salina Journal I Published seven days a week, $65 days a ; year at 333 S. Fourth, P.O.

Late filing meant damaged bridge stayed open to public for 2 days Disciplinary action might be taken against a Saline County sheriffs deputy who failed to complete an accident report after a pickup hit and severely damaged a county bridge. Because the report wasn't immediately filed after the Thursday morning crash, the bridge, near Smolan, was open to traffic for two days after it was damaged. County officials, after learning Saturday of the damage and inspecting the bridge, immediately ordered it closed to traffic. The century-old bridge, southwest of Salina near Smolan, is on Lightville Road, three-quarters of a mile south of McReynolds Road. Recounting the events Tuesday, Sheriff Darrell Wilson said a deputy was called by a tow truck driver after a pickup driven by Joseph Arpad, 41, 1914 E. Claflin, struck the bridge about 2 a.m. Thursday. "From a preliminary investigation, it looks like the deputy did not take a report in a timely manner," Wilson said. "We're still looking at what the breakdown was in our procedures." Wilson said that after a full investigation, the deputy might be reprimanded and a letter placed in his personnel file. Wilson would not identify the deputy. Arpad said Tuesday that it was raining when his truck skidded on gravel at the bridge approach. The truck spun and struck the steel truss of the bridge. When the deputy arrived at the bridge, Arpad said he stayed in his car and talked to the tow truck driver. The deputy did not talk to Arpad and did not file a report, Arpad said. Two days later, county highway workers were notified that the century-old bridge had been damaged. After an inspection, it was closed to traffic. Engineers are trying to determine if the bridge can be repaired. A sheriffs deputy met highway workers at the bridge Saturday and filed a report. 1st District foes wouldn't sign GOP contract By The Associated Press MANHATTAN — They don't agree on everything, but rivals for Kansas' 1st District seat in Congress have one thing in common: Neither the Republican nor the Democrat would sign the Contract with America. "I dislike the idea that you sign your vote away," said GOP candidate Jerry Moran in a debate Monday. He said he supports many of the reforms in the House OOP's 1994 Contract with America, but added, "Pledges are troublesome to me because they are rarely specific." On that point, Democrat John Divine agreed. "I haven't signed very many of these pledges because so many of them don't go into any detail," Divine said. "I would not sign the contract." But in the televised debate, the rivals for the House seat being vacated by Pat Roberts differed over whether federal tax cuts are wise and whether the Department of Education should be abolished. "Why in the world would we want to risk all we're trying to do balancing the budget by cutting taxes," Divine said. Moran, a Republican, said he believes the best way to balance the budget is to "have a growing economy ... it's the least painful way to do it.

T SALINA PLANNING COMMISSION Planners focus on lot for cars South Ninth site may be rezoned but limited to use for used-car lot By CHRIS KOGER The Salina Journal A proposal to develop a used car lot on South Ninth Street will be considered today by Salina Planning Commission members, who might seek to restrict future use of the lot to ensure that it doesn't someday house industrial businesses. Tim Sankey, 2651 Highland, wants to expand his used-car business to South Ninth Street, between Cloud and Woodlawn streets. The land, at 1617 to 1621 S. Ninth, has a house and the former Crumpton Cleaning and Restoration building. Roy Dudark, director of planning and community development, said it's unusual for a residence to share land with a commercial property, but Sankey has promised to move the house or turn it into an office by November 1997. He also plans to build a 40- foot by 48-foot building. At an earlier meeting, Sankey told commission members he would leave the rental house there in case the business doesn't work out. The land is zoned C-3, which FLU SHOTS S 10 PNEUMONIA SHOTS 20 No Co-Payment'Medicare B doesn't allow outside display, so Sankey has requested a C-5 zoning on a trial basis. City staff has cautioned the commission, however, that such a zoning change could open the door to unwanted businesses on the property. The conditional zoning would limit the property's use. If Sankey sells the lot, it could be used for a car lot, but not for other C-5 uses. Sankey plans to pave the area where the cars will be parked and has to build a separate concrete drive for the house. Temporary signs targeted The commission also will discuss zoning regulations concerning temporary business signs, which are becoming more popular for businesses to advertise specials and sales. Past zoning changes have limited the use of mobile signs; a permit for the signs is good for 30 days, but businesses may have only four permits a year, for a total of 60 days. Zoning ordinances say the temporary signs, many of which are plastic banners staked down near streets, can be used in connection with an event for a short period of time. Exactly for what events, and for how long, is not outlined. "This didn't happen until the last couple of months," Dudark said. "We've started seeing these signs more and more. We think it detracts from the looks of the city." The commission members will decide if city planners should schedule a public hearing on an amendment to limit when and where temporary signs can be placed.
