Where does Robert Miranda live? Not in the 5th District of the Alhambra City and High School District, where he hopes to win election to the school board Nov. 3, according to a lawsuit filed Friday in Los Angeles Superior Court. If the allegation is correct, then Miranda also does not live in the Garvey School District, where he serves on the school board. The lawsuit seeks a court order declaring Miranda ineligible for the Alhambra race where he faces candidate Jimmy M. Gin.

Dora Padilla, a school board member for two decades, has decided to not seek a sixth term in November. For much of her time on the board, Padilla has been one of the school district's chief cheerleaders. "It has been very rewarding and very special," she said. Padilla said that with her husband's recent retirement she wants to slow down a little and practice her golf game. "I've got to get better so I can beat him," she said.

Faced with a growing number of elementary school students, the Alhambra school board has directed administrators to draw up plans for a multimillion-dollar bond issue to pay for new facilities and renovate outmoded classrooms. The Alhambra School District Board of Education would like to place the bond measure on the ballot in November 1998, board Vice President Dora S. Padilla said. "We have schools designed for 600 students that have now got 1,100 students," she said.

There were big steps and tiny ones taken Saturday as volunteers across Los Angeles tried for the second time in seven months to wire schools so students can connect classroom computers to the Internet.

In addition to installing computer cables, about 150 volunteers painted and landscaped the campus.

Backed by the overwhelming support of parents, the Alhambra School District's 11,000 elementary school children next year will be connected by a common thread. A khaki, navy or white thread. In one of several efforts to help improve student behavior and safety, uniforms will be mandatory attire at all 15 of the district's K-8 schools, Supt. Richard Keilhacker said Tuesday.

It is very scary to see racism and bigotry publicly spoken by a city official The comments from Board President Kathleen Brzozowski of the Monterey Park city library concerning the other trustee, Marina Tse, are not only racist, but, unfortunately, have been used as an excuse behind racism. Brzozowski has viciously attacked a prominent community leader who has successfully completed many great projects in promoting intergroup relationships and is the winner of the prestigious 1993 L.A. County John Anson Ford Award.

As a 29-year subscriber to the Los Angeles Times, I was appalled and disappointed to read in the San Gabriel Valley section your headline stating "Election Creating School District Is Invalidated" (March 24). Your headline is especially offensive in that it creates a grossly inaccurate impression that some sort of final conclusion, adverse to San Gabriel Unified School District (SGUSD), has been reached. Unfortunately, many people only scan headlines--the juicier the better--without reading the article's contents.

"My dog ate it" still may fly as an excuse for lost homework. But "I left it in my locker" won't fool teachers at nearly half of the San Gabriel Valley's school districts. Vandalism and high maintenance costs have forced 10 of the valley's 22 unified and high school districts to expel student lockers from hallways, and four other districts plan to phase out lockers over the next few years. Eight valley districts still use lockers.
