[Forest Service chief says new study looms on road management By JOHN HOWARD Associated Prm Writer SAN FRANCISCO - A long-awaited study on managing 380,000 miles of national forest roads is near completion/and one of the likely options is scaling back the roadway network, said U.S. Forest Service chief Michael Dombeck. Dombeck told the Commonwealth Club on Tuesday that the report, which will be offered within weeks for a round of public hearings, is the first step toward devising a nationwide plan to it The problem is that right now we have more roads than we can afford. -U.S. Forest Service chief Michael Dombeck H manage the controversial road system that includes local citizens and officials, and federal .authorities. ; "We'll sit down with county supervisors" and Bothers to work out a plan, Dombeck added. !>* Environmentalists believe the roads can contribute to environmental harm in the nation's 192 -million acres of national forests. Dombeck ^agreed, in part. ; '-• The question is, which roads should be elimi- ijated? Some roads may be a "bulwark against iroxious weeds, invasive species," Dombeck said. '•; "The problem is that right now we have more roads than we can afford," he said, noting that roads, especially those that are poorly maintained, can degrade fisheries and wildlife habitats. "We're losing access by our inability to maintain roads. About 1,000 miles of roads annually fall into disrepair," said Dombeck, a fisheries expert from Wisconsin and a university professor ;\vho was named by President Clinton to head the Forest Service in 1997. "The one new thing today is that a road policy is coming out that is emphasizing conservation and stewardship," said Jay Watson, regional director of The Wilderness Society. "I think it's going to strike some balance for decommissioning some of these roads. There will always be a place for roads in the national forests, but it will be a far cry from when timber was king," Watson added. But Chris Nance, a spokesman for the California Forestry Association, said Dombeck and the Clinton administration have focused on roads to the exclusion of other elements that affect forest health. "To say that it is roads alone is missing the point and failing to address the issue," Nance said. "Roads may or may not be part of the forest health solution, but to say it is only roads is dangerously limited in scope. There is a bigger picture here. The national forests are dangerously sick. The General Accounting Office says 39 million acres (nationwide) are at risk for catastrophic fire," Nance said. The issue of roads in the national forests is a two-part dilemma. There is a ban on new-road construction. Last year, President Clinton called for eliminating construction of new roads on federal forests, and Dombeck has presided over a moratorium. The president also urged setting aside at least 50 million acres of roadless wilderness, which includes the most pristine federal timber land, for protections against logging, development and off- road vehicle use. A yearlong series of public hearings on that issue currently is under way. The land-protection issues are touchy ones, particularly in the West, where environmentalists, developers and timber interests have clashed over how much land should be set aside. "It's high time to have policy to monitor and reduce the expansion of the road network," Watson said. Parents are the key to top school ranking in Palo Alto By MICHELLE LOCKE Associated Press Writer PALO ALTO - It may not be too surprising that students at Walter Hays Elementary School outscored their peers across California in newly released school rankings. Turns out their parents did pretty well in school, too. A survey found 75 percent of Hays parents have not only completed college but gone on to graduate school, a ranking that reflects Palo Alto's setting. State rankings released Tuesday show Walter Hays performed the best of any elementary school on the state's 1999 achievement test. Ask parents and teachers what makes Hays exceptional and they come up with a "three Cs" formula - balanced curriculum, sufficient cash and community commitment. As a city in the eye of California's high-tech storm, the Palo Alto district doesn't face the financial crises of many urban schools. Although Hays' pinkish-brown, one-story buildings are far from lavish, computers are plentiful, there is a psychologist on staff part- time and all the teachers are credentialed. Hays lives up to its technology-rich setting with a snappy Web site and programs that blend Internet innovation with education basics. Students in Cathy Chowenhill's 4th-grade classroom, for instance,'participate in a program called "Pixies and Paintings," in which they draw a picture of a fantastic creature, write a detailed description of it and send the description sans picture to a 4th grade class in another school. The receiving team then attempts to recreate the picture from its description. Both pictures, the text and a critique of the reproduction are posted on the school's Web page. Like most suburban schools Hays is largely white, 76 percent, with Asians making up 13 percent of students. Hispanics and blacks each comprise 6 percent of the student body of about 400. Only 5 percent of the children qualify for federally subsidized lunch programs and in 1998-99 only seven students were normative English speakers. Statewide, about 25 percent of students coming to school do not speak English as a first language. Teachers and staff don't downplay the advantages they have. "I truly don't think we're any better than most of the rest of the schools in California. Kids come in well-prepared and parents support them. We're lucky," says Mrs. Chowenhill. "I think about teachers in districts that scored lower who are just as good as we are, they work just as hard as we do." The biggest factor in Hays success, says Ms. Piraino, is "the human contributions we get here." The average class gets at least four or five parent volunteers a year, allowing teachers to break their classes down into smaller groups and take on more ambitious activities. "If they're not able to be here, they're at home supporting what goes on in the classroom," Ms. Piraino said. "Kids are having trouble in school — they want to know, 'What can I do to help them? 1 " Among the parents volunteering at Hays on Tuesday was Paula Powell, there to help rehearse an upcoming school play. Getting involved is a natural in a community where "parents realize they're part of the equation," she said. Volunteering isn't the only thing that makes Ms. Powell a typical Hays parent. She's also working on her master's degree in psychology. 039-00 FICIIIi 00440 1-19,26,-2,9AX> 1-5.12,19,26/00 USINESS 036-00 1-19,26,2-2,9/00 003-00 THE FOLLOWING PER,SON(Sy IS(ARE) DOING BUSINESS AS: Utte Raacal'z Day Can 1990 Elm St. UMah, CA 95482 Rosemary Anna Brown ' 1990 Elm St. Ukiah.CA 95482 This business Is conducted by an Individual. 1 The registrant commenced U> transact business under the fictitious business name or names listed above on January 14, . 2000.
