From Staff Reports ** Regents OK curriculum standards V^ Kansas eighth-graders will have to start preparing next fall if they want to go to college in 2001 By The Associated Press WICHITA — Kansas eighth-graders who plan to attend college in the state will have to start preparing next fall under a new agenda. The state Board of Regents approved Thursday without dissent a curriculum students will need under new state standards that will be in place when they enter universities as freshman in the fall of 2001. Currently, any graduate from a Kansas high school can attend one of the state's universities in Lawrence, Manhattan, Wichita, Emporia, Pittsburg and Fort Hays. Kansas is the only state with open admissions. The 1996 Legislature passed a law requiring that seniors graduating in 2001 either graduate in the top one-third of their class, score a 21 on the American College Testing program or T GAS LEAK Contractor causes gas leak near Tony's achieve a 2.0 grade point average on a 4.0 scale and complete a precollege curriculum. That precollege curriculum will include: • ^Four years of English or language arts — one'class each year starting in ninth grade. • One year of computer technology. Students who pass a computer proficiency test may not be required to take the computer class. • Three years of mathematics, including two years of algebra and one year of geometry. Applied math I and II can be substituted for algebra I. • Three years of social sciences, including one year of U.S. history; one semester of U.S. government; one semester of world history, world geography or international relations; and one year of psychology, economics, civics, history, current social issues, sociology, anthropology, or race and ethnic group relations. • Three years of science classes, with students choosing from chemistry, physics, biology or earth and space science. The regents decided that an applied science class can be substituted for either the biology or earth- and space-science class — if it meets standards set by the Center for Oc- cupational Research and Development, is taught! by a teacher with science credentials and has] been approved by the state Board of Education. | Students also are encouraged to complete.two; years of another language, although it is not re-* quired. The regents approved the curriculum for! the state's scholarship programs — the state, scholars program, the ethnic minority scholar^ ship and the teacher education scholarshipi i Tlie scholarship curriculum is the same as the precollege curriculum, except it will require two! years of another language and an additional] mathematics course, and it will not allow ap j plied science courses as required science cred-1 its. ! There are about 20 high schools that have rad-! ically different grading systems from the 4.0; scale. Students in those high schools can either make a case for why they qualify for state uni-1 versities, score 21 on the ACT, graduate in the! top one-third of their class, or try to get in under; a safety valve that allows each university to ad- 1 mit up to 10 percent of all freshmen students as! exceptions to the policy. | By DAN ENGLAND The Snlina Journal A gas line that serves the Airport Industrial Center and a south Salina neighborhood was cut with a backhoe at 8:10 a.m. Friday, causing a leak that lasted three hours. The line, located south of a freezer facility owned by Tony's Pizza Service, should be in full operation today, said Tom Girard, chief of the Salina Fire Department. The line was cut by Stevens Contractors, 422 E. Avenue, which was putting in a main water line for a city project to upgrade the lines at the industrial center. The center was in no danger of gas poisoning, said Chris Cole, KPL division manager for Salina. "We were very concerned about it, but we and the city monitored the site to make sure the gas wasn't going into any buildings," Cole said. "Everyone should be safe now." The more than 600 residential customers serve'd by the line were not affected because KPL made temporary connections, Cole said. However, 143 industrial customers in- the center didn't have full gas service. Cole didn't have an estimate on the cost of the damage. Most of the customers were on the west side of Centennial Road. The customers had gas, Cole said, because there still was gas in the lines. But the gas wasn't at full pressure. "If the business didn't use a lot of gas, they were probably OK," Cole said. "But a larger business ^Jina Journal Published seven days a week,.'365 days a year at 333 S. Fourth, P.O. Box 740, Salina, Kan, 67402, by Salina Journal Inc. ' > ,,- £-.,; ; & .\..

Stevens Contractors had the lines located, Cole said, and the company hit an abandoned tap that had been capped off. An abandoned tap is one that once served a customer. When a customer's service is moved W a different pipe, the tap is cut off and capped. Cole couldn't say whether Stevens was digging within the state standard of two feet from the gas line, but he did say the taps usually were located within two feet of the pipe. "I'd like to say they were digging too close to it," he said. "But I wasn't there, and at this point I'm not pointing any fault. It would be highly unlikely if we were at fault." But Charlie Stevens, president of'Stevens Contractors, said the tap was sticking out four feet beyond the main gas line. "I went out there and looked at it," he said. "We were two feet from the line, like we were supposed to be. We didn't know this stub was out four feet from the line, and we hit it." Stevens said he would have a meeting with KPL to decide who would pay for the line. "I'm just thankful it didn't catch on fire and that no one was hurt," he said.
