LOTTO: One ticket purchased in Sacramento matched all six" numbers drawn Wednesday night for the twice-weekly game "Super" Lotto," worth an estimated $15 million, California Lottery officials said. Here are the numbers drawn — 4, 8, 15, 29,33 and 47. Language Casino Continued from Page 1 playing number games that would frustrate high school foreign language students, first- graders leading the class, some speaking Spanish one minute and English the next, without thought or hesitation. Program teachers say working with partners or in cooperative groups and hands-on learning is important for any young child's development, but is crucial to immersion. "It's so neat to see the interactions and the confidence," Arroyo said. "The Spanish- speakers help (the English- speaking) students out." Besides giving them equal access to an education, Spanish- speaking children benefit from Imrnersion programs with heightened self-esteem and lead- efship skills. ', • "The confidence and self- esteem of the Spanish-speaker is 'great," said Bob Frassinello, Nokomis principal. "This is validating their language." For the English-speakers, benefits include developing an appreciation of other cultures, cross-cultural competency and a subconscious exploration of personal values and social responsi- bilities. "They're growing up with two languages, which builds cognitive thinking processes," said Alicia Huertero-Yepez, a first- grade teacher. "They know there is more than one way to do things, more than one path. They are starting to see Spanish'in a different light - as a language with prestige. The kids see its power as something that will help them succeed." This is what attracted many of the parents to take a chance on this program. "We wanted (Willie) to have a multi-cultural background, Cayler said. "We recognize that Spanish is going to be a primary language in the United States very soon and we wanted him to have it. He's also seeing that not every child is white and middle- class." Catching up with world-class education was another hope of parents. "Most children in other countries are at least bilingual," said Weissleder. The other hope of teachers and parents is that a bilingual foundation can lead to so much more. "Language is really powerful to them," Arroyo said, giving the example of how much fun the children have using the Chinese phrase for "thank you" they learned while studying the Chinese New Year. "They see language on a global level, but also within the school population." "We let them know that they can communicate with people far. away from here," Yepez said. "They can get online and communicate with people in Mexico or Spain. They get excited and know that they're going to strive for something exceptional. They see themselves as something different, but in a positive way." But high hopes extend beyond Spanish. "I have one first-grade boy who is already talking about learning French or Italian," Yepez said. Weissleder spoke of Caitlin maybe learning German, their family's native language. Though Weissleder was hesitant when approached about this program, he now has complete confidence in it, "(Caitlin is) practically bilingual already," he said. "This program is phenomenal. I recommend it to anyone interested. Caitlin has learned more than we ever expected. It's so impressive and exciting to watch. We plan on putting our 3-year-old son in the same program." Expanding the program may be problematic. There are now 19 to 20 students in each grade level, and a waiting list for kindergarten in September. While Frassinello said he is committed to a quality program for these students through the sixth grade, and already has a third- and fourth-grade teacher in mind, he knows that starting another strand may be difficult. "The teacher needs to be absolutely fluent in both languages - fluent enough to teach proper Spanish," Frassinello said. Then comes finding enough families to participate in the program. "I need strong, supportive, English-only families," he said. Parents know what he means - it takes dedication to work with a child learning a foreign language. "Willie keeps us on our toes," Cayler said. "For his homework, we sometimes have to pull out the English/Spanish dictionary and do it with him." Warning issued again on Burger King toy Robichaud 4-month-old boy suffocated by toy Associated Press INDIANAPOLIS — The Consumer Product Safety Commission today issued its second nationwide alert in a month after a 4-month-old Indianapolis boy suffocated in his crib on a Burger King Pokemon ball. Zachary Jones is the second infant nationwide to suffocate on one of the "Poke Balls," a hollow red-and-white plastic toy about the size of a tennis ball that opens into two halves. Zachary suffocated Tuesday after half of a toy's hall-shaped container* lodged over his moiith and nose. "This is a danger parents wouldn't even imagine because these balls look innocent enough, but they can be deadly if they get stuck over a child's face," safety commission spokesman Russ Rader said Wednesday. Millions of the toys were handed out with Burger King children's meals late last year. The packaging contained ho warnings and described them as "safety tested and recommended for all ages." Burger King on Dec. 27 issued a recall for millions of the toys following the Dec. 11 suffocation of a 13-month-old Sonora, Calif., girl who was found in her playpen with half a ball over her nose and mouth. Rader said the alert was sent today, and a video new release will be issued to television stations. He said Burger King is purchasing radio and newspaper ads in major markets warning consumers of the toy's dangers. "The Pokemon ball half can get stuck over a child's nose and mouth," said Ann Brown, chairman of the product safety commission. "And as a child struggles, the suction gets stronger and stronger and the child really can't cry out. It's a silent death." In December, federal officials accused the fast-food giant of being too slow in recalling the containers, which the company denied. Zachary's family members said they weren't aware of the recall. "It's hard to believe that you go get the kids something to eat and you bring home a lethal toy," said Michael Jones, Zachary's grandfather. Continued from Page 1 take the case or render assistance because the case is very involved," he said. The County Counsel's office already has said it will help with the case. It made the same offer early last year, but that offer wasn't accepted. Continued from Page 1 payment on the September contract because of a billing dispute concerning the July contract. Instead, the council asked Smith's firm to cease work on the casino and hotel designs, but to be ready to resume once the billing dispute was resolved. As of Jan. 5, the council owes him about $814,487 in fees and interest for work already completed, and additional profit he would have earned on the casino-hotel contract, Smith's suit claims. That's more than $1.2 million for all the work done from July through December, Smith said. A nationally known architect whose firm also designed the new 17-story San Francisco State University high-rise residence hall and guest center and is currently designing the proposed Bo Can Ama Porno Museum and Cultural Center south of Mendocino, Smith claims his firm devoted "virtually all of its business resources and efforts" to designing the Sho-Ka-Wah improvements. As a result of the billing dispute and the council's failure to pay its contracted fees, Smith says he was forced to seek outside financing to keep his business operating. But banks would not lend him money unless the council was willing to acknowledge the debt, Smith claims. And that was something the council refused to NOYO THEATRE INDEPENDENT FILM SERIES INSIDER <"> Sift Deuce Bifokw <«> DAILY: 6:40,8:56 do. As a result, Smith had to close down his firm and lay off his staff, according to the suit, and also faces the loss of equipment and facilities. He's also unable to either seek or accept any new business. His loss of, reputation in the architectural community and in prospective and future work has cost him about $1 million, Smith claims. Smith is asking for another $1 million in damages from members of the Tribal Council and Ukiah attorney Lester Marston for breaching the two contracts, plus attorneys fees. On Jan. 5, Smith placed a design professional's lien on the casino site. If he wins his suit, he says he wants the land sold to pay him his money. No date has been set for a hearing. Calls to tribal offices and Marston were not immediately returned. UJlAH (SI 2 S.St%li- I62-67HH DAILY: 5:06,8:00 iPBHS ADO. MAT.
