i Local FirmontlVibuiu; Tuesday, Jan. 26, 1993 A3 New home awaits dog that survived gunshot BY CINDY HADISH Tribune Staff A dog found near death after surviving a gum hot wound is on its way to a new home. A Cedar Bluffs woman on Wednesday will be taking home the chocolate Labrador retriever from the Fremont veterinary clinic where it has been recovering. The woman asked to not be identified in case someone would try to harm the dog again. The dog was discovered Wednesday by two men who were riding snowmobiles cast of Fremont near County Road 26. It had been shot at close range in the head and appeared malnourished. said Drew Wyman, one of the men who found the dog. llte dog may have been shot by its owner, who did not check to make sure it had died, he said. Fremont veterinarian Dr. Mike Christensen said the dog, which Lovitt, he said. Its new owner said slie would name the dog Bullet." "I've had animals since day one," she said, adding that her last two cats had died recently. The woman decided to adopt the dog after she was asked to donate money toward its operation. "We've been looking for a chocolate lab," she said. "Everything seems to be falling into place. It's like this was meant to be." "Bullet" has already been responding to house training at the veterinarian's clinic, she said. Lovitt said the bullet has changed positions in the dog's shoulder, and may possibly be left in. Money that was donated for the dog's operation has gone toward X-rays, antibiotics and other care, she said. We've been looking for a chocolate lab. Every -thing seems to be falling into place. It's like this was meant to be. Injured dog new owner he estimated at 2 years old, apparently suffered no brain damage. The bullet had gone through the dog's right temple and lodged in its right shoulder. The wound was already several days old when the dog was brought in to the clinic by Dodge County Humane Society Director Nancy Debate focuses on graduation requirements w I BY LIZ WELLING Tribune Staff Graduation requirements were the focus of Monday night's meeting of the Fremont Board of Education. About twenty people attended a public debate cm the competency requirements district students must master before they can graduate from high school. It was the first public forum hosted by the district. James Merritt, superintendent of Fremont Public Schools, said graduation requirements arent new to the district since the 1970s many schools have used them as a determinant of knowledge and skills learned while in school. But he said something more is needed because the present system assumes too much. "Just because a student has attended class doesnt mean learning has taken place, Merritt said. Dr. Michael Adams, board president, said everyone likely can relate to cramming for an exam, then forgetting the material after the test is completed. "It might be a little different if, at the end of the year, a student has to take their knowledge and apply it to a societal problem, he said. Much of the discussion, started by two members of the Fremont Senior High School debate team, centered on what changes would j mumt i Today TOPS 147, 6 p.m..

"More teachers and secretaries would be needed. There would be more paperwork. The overall cost to the education system would be more money. There is more stability with the current system. But, Mike OBoyle, another member of the debate team, said without competency-based education and authentic achievement, there really is no measure of what a student has actually learned. "We cant have people who slip through the system, he said. Students must not complete just the minimum competency level, like getting a D just to get credit. Changing the current system to something where students have more control over their own achievement might end one of the harshest criticisms in education, said David Probst, the school districts director of special education.
