"I think it's going to change the way we think. Sometimes we think math is math. But how is that part of the whole, and how will kids use it after school." School-to-work, Kirkwood said, will provide students with work portfolios to establish weaknesses and strengths and help that student make a choice toward which path they want to take. A path that may not mean a four-year college, but instead a vocational training facility or a community college. "The reality is, why would they go to college if they don't want to and don't need to," Kirkwood said.

Recent studies suggest students make more money after they attend a vocationaltechnical school or community college than a four-year college or university.

The council agreed to discuss the leather work day May ll Accessory building issue dropped By Stephanie Geery-Zink Daily Sun staff writer A councilman has dropped his request to have the Beatrice Planning and Zoning Commission reconsider size requirements for accessory buildings. Councilman Wayne Bitting told the commission Tuesday night that he was hoping the City Council would hold off on approving the change in the zoning regulations that it ended up passing Monday night until the commission was able to meet and make another recommendation. The change the council passed takes into account the square footage of the first two floors of a house in figuring out how large the accessory building can be, up to 1,200 square feet. The regulations also state that the accessory building can be no taller than 16 feet or the height of the house, whichever is smaller.

Bitting would like to allow accessory buildings to be taller and larger. "Why are we going to discuss it if they're (the council) happy with asked Commissioner Scott Knispcl. The original recommendation of the commission, made in December hen the issue first came before the City Council, was to allow an building no higher than 20 feet. Bitting said he has had some constituents who have told him that they cannot get a recreational vehicle into a 16-foot-taIl accessory building. Bitting said he doesn't have the support at the City Council to change the regulations again, so there was no point in continuing with the issue.

In other business: Parking Voted to recommend to the City Council a change in the zoning ordinance which would require a special use permit if businesses have parking off the business' lot to fulfill the city's parking stall requirement. The parking would still need to be within 300 feet of the business' property. This would apply to all zoning districts. port has to be given to students and to employees. Kirkwood said recognizing that every employee is a professional and giving him or her their just rewards is important and a valuable influence on students.

Renshaw agrees. "We've got to do more to renew our respect for professionals," he said. Renshaw said students in Gage County need to know that the truck driver is just as professional and important as the banker or the lawyer, and that these are the careers that should be glamorized, not pro athletes and such. But it's the athlete which often times is part of a team. Renshaw said school-to-work is team of people dedicated toward one goal: produce successful, productive citizens.

Although it's a cliche, Kirkwood, Renshaw, Roschewski and Barricklow know it's the truth when it comes to the school-to-work program "It takes a village raise a child." "You know in Odell, people are always taking care of one another's kids," Renshaw, who lives in Odell, said. "And that exactly the concept it takes a village that's it in a nutshell." By Darlene March Daily Sun special contributor BLUE SPRINGS The Blue Springs City Council approved the appointment of Fred Laber as a member of the City Council Tuesday night.

In Brief Belvedere project having problems The Belvedere bridge project has been plagued with problems. City Engineer Rex Behrends said the bridge should be completed by Oct. 1 at the latest, but he is hoping workers will beat that date by two weeks.

Diamond Engineering of Grand Island, hich is building the new bridge on Belvedere Avenue west of the Belvedere Addition, has had trouble getting supplies and has been some weather problems. Behrends said the men can't work in the mud. Add to that there was probably not enough forces on the job early on, and the supervisor had a heart attack last weekend meaning a new supervisor will have to get familiar with the project, Behrends said. The project was originally slated for completion in August. group in 1974.

Prosecutors say Lauck of Lincoln, peddled the videos in the early 1990s. But Hamburg state law has a 6-month statute of limitations for such propaganda offenses. Chief Judge Guenter Bertram denied other requests by Lauck's attorney, Hans-Otto Sicg, to subpoena one of the American's colleagues, Opal Soltau, and hear testimony from each person to whom Lauck is accused of sending neo-Nazi material. Bertram said no further testimo sxx.

"This is an ideal concept," she said. "Gage County could be a model." Jamie Renshaw, president of the Gage County Economic Development, said the idea of a school-to-work program was not new to the county, but that now was certainly the time get the ball rolling. He said in the early 1980s when the idea was first discussed, there were plenty of applicants for a variety of jobs. "But when you don't have a lot of applicants per job, employers start to take notice," he said.

"We wanted to roll up our sleeves and become part of the solution." In the late '80s, Gage County business leaders began meeting twice a month to talk about what path Gage County should take in getting students to become productive employees and citizens, Renshaw said. In February, GCED officials and business leaders heard about'the chance to receive grant monies from the federal government. Mike Barricklow, director of special programs and curriculum at Beatrice Public Schools, wrote a grant asking for funds to start a program in the district. "As I listened to what was being discussed, I realized that this was not just at our level, but it was a national issue," Renshaw said. The grant was approved, and Kirkwooo" was hired as the program coordinator.

Barricklow said the GCED members were at first apprehensive. "They were thinking, 'Why is an educator trying to communicate that to he said. But Barricklow said the GCED, business leaders, community leaders, parents and educators all wanted the same thing and working together only made more and more sense.
