Reeve, who was paralyzed from the neck down in a 1995 riding accident, is coming to the Twin Cities on Oct. 27 to receive the National Courage Award from the Courage Center, which runs programs for the disabled. But some critics say his lobbying for more funding for medical research is siphoning off money for programs to help people deal with their disabilities. "His receiving the Courage Award is sucking up and draining the resources for those of us who already have a broken neck, who are quadriplegics, or who are blind," said Rick Cardenas, a community organizer with a St. Paul group called Advocating Change Together. The actor was chosen because he has raised awareness of disabilities, said Kathy Jundt, a spokeswoman for the center. "My sense is that the general public feels that Reeve is a hero, and he's really done wonderful things," she said. Wallace: Tell whole story MONTGOMERY, Ala. — Former Gov. George Wallace is flattered a movie is being made about him but worried it will tell only half the story. Turner Network Television announced the project Tuesday, saying the cable movie will air in 1997. It will be based on Marshall Frady's book "Wallace," which was last updated in 1972, before Wallace renounced his segregationist views. "The governor is very flattered that TNT has decided his life story merits a movie," said Wallace spokesman David Azbell. "But we hope they tell the entire story of the man, not only the George Wallace of the early '60s, but the later George Wallace who reached out a hand to every group in Alabama as well." Wallace was an outspoken segregationist governor and presidential candidate before he was paralyzed in an assassination attempt during the 1972 White House campaign. He won two more terms as governor, the last coming with widespread black support. Wallace will be portrayed by Gary Sinise, who played the legless Vietnam veteran in "Forrest Gump" and had the title role in HBO's "Truman." From Wire Service Reports WALLACE V ADVICE Computers cannot replace smarts in writing . Dear Ann Landers: I was surprised to read the letter from "Quebec Quandary," the teacher who was unsure about how she should evaluate handwritten English papers as compared with those that were word-processed on a computer. Technology is an integral part of today's work force. Since this is now a fact of life, it is the school's job to teach students how to use computers as well as provide access to them. Teaching the basics of language, however, is still the teacher's responsibility. *" Computer spelling programs do not pick up on typing and homophone errors such as "to," "two" and "too." I would never use, let alone recommend, a grammar-checker. One must have a fairly ANN LANDERS Creators Syndicate Inc. broad-based, in-depth knowledge of grammar in order to use the program. Of course, at that point, you don't really need it. The only real advantage of a computer- generated English paper is that it looks better. — English Teacher in Fairfax, Va. Dear Teacher: I'm sure even the computer buffs in my reading audience would agree with you. Keep reading for more: Dear Ann: I read the letter from "Quebec Quandary" about students using computers. .She seems to think all students have the right to a level playing field. That just isn't so. There can never be equal status for all kids in all categories. No student should rely on the computer's spell-check utility. It can't tell the difference between "wreak" and "wreck" because both are legitimate spellings of different words. It will accept either, whether the user wants to say "The storm TV TONIGHT wreaked havoc" or "The car was wrecked." The student who can't afford to buy a computer can certainly afford to buy a dog-eared dictionary at a garage sale. And the kid does himself a disservice by using the computer's mindless utilities. Such dependency will ensure that he will never become proficient in spelling or grammar. The goal of a teacher should be to see to it that all students have a firm grip on both these skills before the class year is over — whether or not they own computers. Gadgets will never be a good substitute for sweat. — Russell in Va. Dear Russell: Amen, brother. Keep reading. What follows will rattle your molars. It may also dampen a student's enthusiasm for computers: Deer Ann Landers: This is for the teacher in Quebec who was concerned about grading papers dun on computers compared two papers prepared bye stu- dents who hand right them. I think the computer is a solution too my terrible penmanship, but I must also take the time too recheck my papers if I want it too look well. A spell-checker only identifies misspelled words. Its still you're job two correct them. My sun uses the computers suggestions, but sometimes, their are know suggestions that fit. As you can probably guess buy now, my spell-checker can find know errors hear. Can ewe? Seriously, Ann, teachers must decide what they feel is most important — the content, the spelling or both. Maybe we could dispense with grading the papers altogether and just teach the subject matter. — Port Sanilac, Mich. Dear Port Sanilac: Some teachers have been doing just that for quite some time — no grades, just "pass" or "fail." I prefer the old-fashioned way. It motivates those who strive for excellence, and I'm all for that. Best bets • 8 p.m. — "Murder One," ABC, Salina cable channels 9 & 10.
