Tom Gerrity, director of the board of elections, asked Kathy Kuhlman of the county's tax map department to use her mapping equipment and the city's ordinance outlining ward boundaries to create a map showing correct boundaries.

AVERY - Texting, dialing and clicking their way through the day is so much a part of current youth culture that it may seem as if hospitals attach remote controls to newborns in the delivery room. Acting on the reality that teens and technology are a natural pair, EHOVE Career Center is benefiting from a training system that promotes the remote. As a regular part of classroom instruction, students in the transportation technologies (auto tech/auto body and diesel tech) programs use the electronic devices to participate in computerized lessons over a TV monitor through the Student Response System (SRS).

This letter concerns Shirley Dennison and her arrest for purportedly making threats at Christie Lane. My brother has attended Christie Lane for more than 40 years.

A belated congratulations (Mary Lisa Boose) on your Nov. 1 page one story headlined "JFS hikes bosses' pay in midst of union talks." It was very much in the public interest for you to publish that. Just as much in the public interest would be some figures on the retirement pensions that these folks will be getting. I'm sure a lot of people would like to see those numbers. I used to live in a small town in western Colorado, Palisade (pop. 2000), where editor Bob Dougherty used to print every single expenditure of the town government in the back of the Palisade Tribune near the classifieds. And I mean every expenditure if someone bought a couple of reams of paper at Sanders Office Supply, that would be in there. You can bet that money was spent very carefully in that little town.

Whoever decided we have to change the clocks twice a year must enjoy creating confusion. For one thing, how is it possible to "gain" an hour or "lose" an hour, when every day is always 24 hours long? I know, I know ... spring ahead and fall back. Over the weekend, I moved my clock an hour earlier, so it seemed like I had an extra hour in the day. But there are so many clocks to change! There is the alarm clock in my room, the alarm clock in my son's room, the kitchen wall clock, the clock built into the electric stove, the clock on the microwave, the clock on the VCR, my watch, the clock in the one car, the clock in the other car ... A person could spend the entire hour gained doing nothing but changing the time on the clocks.
