2 · Northweil Arkanwi TIMES, Thurs., Sept. 26, 1974 FAYETTEVILLI, AKKAN1A* w SdooU A six-member team of Fay- · elteville teachers is the focus group for the schools' drug · abuse prevention program this year. The ADAPT program ·:; which had operated in both Fayetteville and Springdale during the past two years ended :. Iri June. Five Fayetteville teachers, Rita Hardgrave and Roincy T h o m a s o n from Woodland, Shirley Durning from Ramay, Joe Slaven from Central Administration a n d Marty : Deweese from FHS, attended in ' July a training cycle sponsored : the Region VII Drug Train! "''; ing.and Resource Center in San Antonio, Texas. A sixth member, Martha Agee from Uptown School, has been added to the team. THE PLAN'developed at San 1 Antonio focuses on the seventh ··-:_ grade classes and a high school class called Goal Development and Decision Making. Emphasis in these classes will be on decision making skills, values clari- t i c a t i o n , seeking available alternatives, b u i l d i n g , self- esteem, and learning to meet personal needs. The plan has as objectives to reach as many students as possible w i t h these skills and lo make the public aware of skill development as the most successful approach to prevention of drug abuse or any other negative behavior. The plan definitely aims rather than Osage Oil Wins Local Sign Dispute "It's too large, too close to the road, and probably too tall, and if we win the appeal we filed in the Supreme Court, it will have to come down," said City Manager Donald Grimes in commenting about the large sign recently erected at 1GOO N. College Ave. by the Osage Oil Co. "I think the sign is a good example of why we have a sign ordinance and why we need one," Grimes said. . Osage Oil Co. recently won a decision in Washington Circuit Court against the city in regard to the large sign. The court in its ruling declared unconstitutional several provisions in the city's old sign ordinance. The court also directed the city's Board of Adjustment to grant the variance requested by the company which had previously at prevention treatment and makes no attempt to identify the students according to past behavior. A MAJORITY of the teachers in Fayetteville schools have received training in these same skills and effort is being made to develop mini-teams within each secondary school whose goals 'Will be to make use of these skills whenever appro : priate in as many classes as possible. The mini-teams will also consider the needs for developing alternative activities in each school. been denied. The Fayetteville Board of Directors at its Sept. 17 meeting agreed to pursue the matter as far as the State Supreme Court in the hope of having Circuit J u d g e Maupin' Cummings decision overturned. While the suit filed by Osage was still in progress, the city adopted a new sign ordinance · with many of the same provi sions as the old one. However City Attorney JirrfSMcCord is researching the new ordinance to determine whether or not the matter can be dealt with under the present ordinance. The present ordinance as well as the old one permits a sign no larger than 75 square feet. The sign erected Wednesday by Osage has a total area of 249.5 square feet, much larger than the size permitted by ordinance. In addition, Building Inspector Harold Leiberenz told the TIMES this .morning that no permit for the erection of the sign had been requested or granted through his office. According to law, a permit must be obtained before a sign an be erected. Future ICONltNUED FHOM PAGE ONI) her former husband in Springdale.
