I I 1 1 I I Page B2 - THE SACRAMENTO BEE — Friday June 1 1979 Rural Schools Face Funds Squeeze By KEN PAYTON Bee Staff Writer Growing enrollments in Northern California's rural schools have many administrators worried that double sessions and portable classrooms may become permanent fixtures There are two parts to the problem: People are moving in great numbers to the rural areas particularly the Sierra foothill counties th The ition 13 tax initiative curtaiiedPrsterksvi districts ability to raise money for permanent school buildings Although the state-wide trend is toward reduced school enrollments the foothill school districts are growing so fast that they have insufficient classrooms to house the students They have only enough money for double sessions or purchasing portable classrooms Somehow administrators say the state Legislature must come to the rescue with money for developing new school sites Many of them say however this will be difficult in this era of fiscal conservatism when support for legislation must come from the metropolitan areas most of which are losing students "Education is not top priority now" said Bob Edwards superintendent of the Buckeye and Mother Lode Union School Districts sprawled along busy Highway SO west of Placerville "Parents with school children are in the minority -Maybe in five years after we're all on double sessions we'll get the support" One hope is the omnibus school financing bill ABS authored by Sacramento Democrat Leroy Greene Supported by the state-wide Coalition for Adequate School Housing the bill would earmark I percent of all construction permit fees for an annual $150 million school building construction fund School districts could qualify for matching funds according to long-standing state criteria The bill would make available another $15 million for buying a school district's portable classrooms which the state would then lease back to the districts until they no longer needed them A third provision of the bill would allow school districts to set aside one-half of I percent of their annual budgets for maintenance which the state would match dollar for dollar Already at least one public school campus in the foothills of El Dorado County — the Green Valley School in the Rescue Union School District — consists entirely of nine portable classrooms because student housing is so short Superintendent Gaylen Freeman says he has six other portables in the district and plans to open nine more in September including a new portable Green Valley School campus to be relocated at Bass Lake and Green Valley Roads By WAYNE WILSON Bee Staff Writer Sacramento County Superior Court Judge Robert W Cole Thursday summarily denied a defense motion to strike five of seven felony sex perversion counts against Dr William E Miof sky Miofsky's attorney Donald P Dorfman promptly notified Cole he will seek a change of venue and said outside the courtroom -The pressure is too great to have further court pro By PAM SLATER Bee Staff Writer Shaded by a 40-foot-tall century-old village oak developer Henry Urrutia pointed to the surrounding grassy nature area off Discovery Park and described Thursday the DO-berth marina he would like to build there The 68-year-old Urrutia is no stranger to marinas Last January the city sunk his proposed 616-berth Garden Marina that he had planned since 1965 That 122-acre site on the American River is located less than a mile from where he was standing four months later with renewed hopes Urrutia explained his marina revival to representatives from the city and county the press and two environmental agencies during a one-hour field trip conducted by the Environmental Council of Sacramento The new Sacramento River site once proposed for a marina by the county would not have the kinds of environmental problems that led to the defeat of his previous attempt Urrutia said The Sacramento River he said has been described by environmentalists as more appropriate for marinas Urrutia has proposed a swap of his 122 acres for the cotmty's 32-acre site on the Sacramento River Marina architect John Harvey Carter said "Obviously it's not going to be a straight across-the-board swap" The county would have to pay for some of the Urrutia land he said - But Urrutia aware of the scarcity of park bond money said that he wouldn't ask for immediate payment "We're flexible We don't need a lot of money We could wait 10 15 years" The swap would have benefits for both the county and the city Carter said The county could add the acreage to the American River Parkway and the $6 million inverse condemna A41APqa e ” :4P c s d- 11 r '" Lia 7t 141 Students at Green Valley School attend all of their classes in portable buildings The Rescue district grew 20 percent last year and another 25 percent since school opened in September In Nevada County children from Alta Sierra and Lake of the Pines in the Pleasant Ridge Union School District have been on double sessions since September when school opened with 150 more students than the previous year Pleasant Ridge is the fastest-growing district in Nevada County It claims 50 percent of the western half of the region where 4000 residential subdivision lots are in the planning stages and less than 50 percent of an additional 2000 approved residential lots have been developed Superintendent James Meshwert said he would need at least four new classrooms next year if growth continues at its present rate unless district trustees devise a different plan "Low-cost facilities" he observed "generally become high maintenance facilities What we need is a method for funding long-range facilities" Throughout the Sierra its the same Nevada Union High School will build a school with funds that became available before Proposition 13 was passed But district business manager Ty Blount says "by the time it's built we'll need another if our growth Miofsky Charges Upheld Venue Change Sought ceedings in this town" Cole scheduled a hearing on the change of venue motion for June 12 "I'd like to move this to a different setting where it isn't under constant scrutiny by the press outside the broadcast range of the local television stations and outside the circulation area of the local newspapers" Dorfman said He did not specify his preference but indicated it would have to be an area roughly equivalent to Sacra men Urrutia Shows Where He Wants Marina On Sacramento tion suit filed by Urrutia in 1977 against the city would be dropped he said The latest proposal is located within city jurisdiction but on the 32 acres of county land along the Sacramento Guilty Plea In Slayings Case Della Hunt 28 one of four persons charged with the 1978 deaths of two parolees who had links to the Charles Manson family has pleaded guilty to being an accessory to a felony and assault with a deadly weapon Superior Court Judge Rothwell Mason referred Mrs Hunt's case to the county probation department for a report and sentencing for June 27 Deputy District Attorney Ken Hake asked Mason Wednesday to dismiss the other charges against Mrs Hunt including conspiracy to murder one count of murder two counts each of kidnapping and burglary and three counts each of robbery and assault with a deadly weapon The other defendants in the case are Mrs Hunt's husband Chester Lee Hunt 29 Robert Harry Chrisman 25 and Donna Lorene Bierer 28 They ' are accused of killing James Terrill Craig 38 and Edward Albert Barajas 27 who were left in the trunk of a burning gasoline-doused car early Nov 15 on the Garden Highway Barabas was found dead of a gunshot wound to the head Craig was in critical condition at the University Medical Center for a month before he died Dec 22 His jaw had been shot away his buttocks burned off in the auto tire and his right arm and three fingers of his left hand amputated at the hospital -
