Apparently it's not enough for Bush to smear the American Civil Liberties Union and the "L" word. He has tried to smear the peace forces in this country by lying about our position on the testing of nuclear weapons. Since 1982, the Nuclear Weapons Freeze Campaign has consistently advocated a bilateral freeze on the testing of nuclear weapons. Bilateral means both sides! The freeze movement has never called for a unilateral freeze or unilateral cuts in our weapons!

In the chilly fall darkness just before sunup, eight high school students huddled together inside the small shed high on the eastern slope of 10,023-foot Mt. Hawkins. They were waiting for a school bus. When the headlights of the Alpine County Unified School District bus rounded a bend on the steep, two-lane road and came to a stop, the students dashed from the shelter to join 34 other youths for the ride down the mountain and across the state line to Douglas High School in Minden, Nev.

At least 40 people, including 13 juveniles, have been arrested in the Sierra foothills community of Grass Valley as part of a crackdown by authorities on drug sales near area high schools. Nevada County Sheriff Bill Heafey, who said he had arrest warrants for 13 more adults and three more juveniles, said an undercover agent had made 63 separate buys for marijuana, cocaine, methamphetamines and LSD in recent months in Grass Valley, about 50 miles northeast of Sacramento.

Independence High School won the Nevada State Wrestling championship the past two years, was runner-up in basketball in 1983 and has a competitive football and track team. Yet the Independence High Colts have no cheerleaders, no school song, no homecoming, no yearbook, no annual awards banquets, no letterman jackets. No college or university recruits its athletes. Parents seldom show up to see their sons play. No one at the school is on the team more than one season.
