2B LOCAL Wisconsin State Journal, Thursday, September 30, 1993 District will study use of school sites Madison Superintendent Cheryl Wilhoyte will appoint a Special committee to study new policies for the use of school district buildings by local organizations such as Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts, the district announced Wednesday. The committee, to be chosen as a Subcommittee of the school district's Community Partnership Council, will develop policies, fee structures and guidelines on the equitable use of school space. The current criteria used by the district has proved unsatisfactory in deciding whether to grant fee waivers to groups during the 1993-94 school year, according to a school district press release. Organizations that have already applied for fee waivers' may continue to meet in district buildings without being charged until a decision is made. Afterward, all organizations will be given a grace period to allow' them to decide whether to continue meeting in district buildings or relocate. Armed robbery: Madison police arrested a man they believe robbed several people at gunpoint in a Simpson Street apartment building Wednesday night, and police were searching for his accom- . plice early Thursday, Lt. Jil Klubertanz said. A group of about six people were in a hallway of the building at 1531 Simpson St.. about 10:45 p.m. when two men, both with handguns, entered the building and robbed two people in the group, police said. One of the victims notified Trek Security, which called police. Jody Clay, 23, no permanent address, was arrested after a foot chase The other man, described as black and in his 20s, about 5-foot-6 and 140 pounds with braided hair, was being sought The robbery may have led to a second incident near the Wortning-ton neighborhood about 12:15 a.m. today, Klubertanz said, in which eight to 10 shots were fired. She said a victim from the Simpson robbery may have gone to look for the suspect Seven injured: Seven people, including five juveniles, were injured Wednesday night when the car in which they were riding left a Sun Prairie street and smashed into several trees in a park, Sun Prairie police said early today. The car, driven by Antoine Whitehorne, 23, Madison, was speeding, police said, in the 1100 block of Vandenburg Street about 7:50 p.m. when it veered into the park. Whitehorne and six others, whose names were not released, were taken to Madison hospitals by ambulances from Sun Prairie, DeForest and Madison. A second Madison man in the car was taken from the scene by Med-Flight helicopter. All of the juveniles are from Sun Prairie. The conditions of the driver and passengers were not available early today. White horne, who sustained a head injury, was tentatively charged with -drunken driving; other charges were pending. fl Inmates fight Three Dane County inmates are being held in the jail's segregation unit after a fight at the county's work-release center that left one deputy injured. The inmates Kimyora Cross, John Isom and Eugene DeWalt were in the Ferris Center when Cross began hassling Isom about the size of his jail pants, said Dane County Capt David Listug. When Isom tried to walk away, Cross grabbed him and Isom tried to hit Cross with a chair, Listug said. Deputies intervened and as they were taking Cross away he struggled and Deputy Eric Weir fell to the floor, injuring his knee DeWalt became involved after Cross was taken away and also hasseled Isom. The two fought, so they were transferred to the jail Downtown, Listug said. All will receive hearings on breaking jail rules and Cross is likely to face charges of disorderly conduct and resisting an officer.

B Bryant Kearl: Kearl, 72, who began a long tenure as a UW-Madi-son administrator during the riot- torn 1960s, died Wednesday. Kearl, a professor of agricultural journalism, was named vice chancellor in 1967, serving under three chancellors as UW-Madison weathered the student protest era and the sometimes traumatic merger with the UW System. He was acting chancellor in 1968 and later the first dean of outreach. He retired in 1989. A quietly eloquent man, Kearl worked behind the scenes to build consensus. He is credited with helping launch such UW institutions as the Land Tenure Center, the Poverty Institute, the Round Table issues discussion group and the Wisconsin Ideas Seminar, which introduces new professors to Wisconsin people and issues. "He had a creative, problem-solving mind which he applied to all facets of university administration," said Bernard Cohen, also a former vice chancellor and acting chancellor, and a longtime friend. "All of us even those who never met him will be forever in his debt." Kearl's memorial service will be 4 p.m. Saturday at Cress Funeral Home, 3610 Speedway Road. ' The first in a series of public hearings about the city's transit system, sponsored by Madison Metro, is tonight at East High School starting at 7 p.m. An incorrect date was reported Wednesday. The remaining hearings will be Oct 6 at Schenk Elementary School; Oct 13 at the Downtown Public Library, Oct. 14 at Marquette Elementary School; Oct 18 at the Mea-dowridge branch library; and Oct. 20 at the UW-Madison Memorial Union.

But officials, residents and business leaders say that's changing. They say a housing rehabilitation program barely three months old already is turning the North Side neighborhood around. They say the crime rate has dropped, due in part to a concerted effort that combines a neighborhood social worker, neighborhood police officer and housing rehabilitation. Vera Court is a short street off School Road. Lined with apartment buildings, the street isn't far from the main offices of Dane County Human Services on the hill along Northport Drive. In one of those brick Vera Court buildings, Wanda Rogers was cleaning a refrigerator Wednesday afternoon. She used a yellow sponge and soapy water to carefully wipe down the food-stained plastic shelves. Rogers, who has a 16-year-old daughter, lives next door to the building where she was working. She is among 35 welfare recipients hired for the project "It's a pretty good job," she said. "You learn a lot of stuff." She laughed. "You learn how to clean up." Some participants have learned more than that. The project was de signed to provide training for neighborhood residents so they could compete for private-sector jobs. Fritz Grutzner of the Meridian Group, which manages the project, said employers have been so impressed with the skills shown by the resident workers that some have been offered permanent jobs. The project is a joint effort by businesses, Dane County and the Greater Madison Chamber of Commerce. Residents this week moved into an eight-unit apartment building on Petterle Place that was renovated under the project Work crews have also been trimming brush. Outside the window of the apartment where Wanda Rogers was working, business and political leaders gathered Wednesday to laud the project "The real heroes in Vera Court ... are the residents," said Dick Hanson, president of Firstar Bank. County Executive Richard Phelps said the Vera Court neighborhood was part of a pilot area for the county's Joining Forces for Families program. He said the 1994 budget, to be unveiled Friday, calls for adding two neighborhoods to the program. Darlene Horner, president of the Vera Court Neighborhood Association, said the project has meant positive change. '. "People are beginning to have more self-esteem," she said. Flutist Continued from Page IB method based on flutist Marcel Moyse's theories used in Europe, U.S. teachers each have their own methods, he said. To hammer home the point, he noted that no American flutist has won a recent major competition. Smiling, and with his melodic Irish voice softening his words a bit, he told the first two volunteers he was 53 and didn't have time for nervousness or to explain basic concepts. Then, Mandry got her chance to take the stage. Galway put her through her musical paces, sometimes brusquely stopping her midnote and making her repeat tones and scales. She took it all in stride, nodding her head in understanding at his in- struction and offering an occasional "OK." At one point, he offered her his" own flute to try. Later, he confided his own practice technique of playing to his plants. The audience rewarded him with laughter as he leaned nearer to an invisible plant' and said, "Here's F major just for you." "It's a rush," Mandry said later of the experience. Working with Galway has "been my dream since I was 5." She had been well-aware of Gal-way's reputation for frankness, and said she appreciated his teaching' style. She reflected a bit of the master's directness herself, when asked whether she hoped one day to be a soloist like Galway. "I will, somehow," she said. .

CITY OF MADISON 1 993 FALL LEAF COLLECTION SCHEDULE Last fall, the City of Madison collected over 10,000 tons of leaves. These leaves were composted saving valuable landfill space.
