Ukiah Uhiiied board decides Sch ool p r I ncipd I s h a ve option on smoking area The Ukiah Unified Board of • Education Tuesday night indicated that it favored establishment of designated smoking areas on high school campuses if shioking is to be allowed on campus by students. ' . . But it decided to leaVe the option of allowing smbking on campus by students to high school principals at Ukiahi and South Valley. Smoking would only be permitted at the high schools, and not on any junior high or elementary campus. However, the board did not take action on adopting a change in policy wording last night. It will wait until Feb. 14 to act on several board and administrative policy modifications regarding expulsion, smoking on campus and limiting enrollment at South Valley .High School. Board member Dennis D^ny urged that the principals see to it that a warning about the dangers of cigarette smbking be given students. But the bpard, by cpnsensus, seemed to feel that a designated smoking area on high school campuses is necessary, if only to "give the restrooms back to the nonsmoking students." Principal Bill TuUy, who has made available to Ukiahi students a smoking area adjacent to the school, said that nadecision has yet been made by the student body of administration as to whether or not smoking will be permitted on campus next year, the first on the new Low Gap Road campus. But he wanted the option to decide which, and to enforce smoking area rules. Oscar Groves, South Valley prjincipa}, asked for options so that students who do riot observe rules can ^ disciplined, or the option to smoke may rescinded if necessary. Groves also presented to the board an overview of the 100 or so students at South Valley, what they study, how their study is on a more individualized, do it at your own pace basis; and how such students can. achieve more in this setting than in a class of regular size in a large school. A board pjolicy to be voted on next meeting would serve to assure continuation of the South Valley goals.

The prison sentence given to FijMtch was the maximum allowable under California's new Determinate Sentencing Act. A^ the time of the offense, the defendant had been on parole l6ss than thre6 months from a prior stateiprison sentence for robbery and assault with a deadly weapon. Johh R.

Assembly Health Committee Chairman ^rry Keene charged today. Keene was joined by Assemblymen ' Hefschel Rosenthal (D-Los Angeles) and Tom Bales (D-Oakland), all members of the special subcommittee on health care investigations. "When talking about a contract that could cost' the taxpayers a quarter of a billiuh dollars' in • administrative expenses during the next five years, the strictest competitive bidding process should be required," Keene said. Blue Cross and Blue Shield have acted as fiscal intermediaries for almost all Medi-Cal payments since,1966, operating on a month-to- month contract with the state initially obtained without competitive bids. Hearings before Keene's special subcommittee and other committees revealed some problems with "the month-to-month contract and with the companies' operation- of the program,, Keene noted today. The administration had decided the year before after its own investigation to award a five-year contract through competitive bdding. "Now the companies appear to be trying to short-circuit the bidding process through the application of [lolitical pressure. Why? It is against their own interests because it would be viewed as an admission that they cannot be , competitive," Kenne said. Keene said he and other members of the special subcommittee. Assemblymen Bates and Rosenthal, consider the proposal to elimTfiaTe" competitive bidding ps fiscally imjfirudent and socially unsound. The fiscal'intermediary, Keene explained, processes Medi-Cal claims presented by hospitals, doctors and other health care providers. These claims are expected to total as much as $20 billion during the five-year life of the new contract, he said. o College Offering You Classes in: re^reaiion real estaie business . dfu* aeronauiies ienms ari german yoga soeialogy ' drama eiifflish poM^tn* tneehanies adntinisiraiion of Jusiiee spunish Registration: 27 R -30-12 .130-B 5-Bpm HOME ARTS BOItDING^or WlHits8.Lakepprt Centers $1.25 IS - ^FbracJditional information call-462"HE ONLY FEE CHARGED TO CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS TO ENROLL IN MENDOCINOCG CLASSES
