While students at Hoover High School poured out of classrooms Monday to grieve at a sidewalk memorial for Raul Aguirre, a senior stabbed to death in front of the school, authorities met to discuss ways to increase campus safety and defuse ethnic tensions. Officials said they are considering installing surveillance cameras around Hoover and hiring off-duty police to patrol the campus, as well as closing off the street in front of the school and possibly naming it after Raul.

U.S. teammates Jack Davis and Harrison Dillard were locked in a close race in the final of the 110-meter hurdles at the Helsinki Olympics in July 1952 when Davis, who was barely ahead, banged into the ninth barrier and lost his slim lead. At the finish line, the sprinters were clocked at an identical 13.7 seconds, a new Olympic record. But a photo finish showed Dillard first by an eyelash. Four years later, Davis lined up in the starting blocks of the same event at the 1956 Melbourne Olympics.

After struggling for months over severe budget cuts, the Glendale Board of Education this week found itself in the happy position of receiving unsolicited money--a gift of nearly $344,000. The money, which the board accepted by a unanimous vote Tuesday, came from former district employees Ian and Edna McLennan, who bequeathed their estate to Hoover High School, along with three other beneficiaries, upon their deaths two years ago--four months apart.

Police have released a 20-year-old man who was arrested on suspicion of setting a fire that caused nearly $3 million in damage to Hoover High School, citing lack of evidence. Sgt. Rick Young said Zavar Manokian was released Thursday and no charges were filed against him because there is not enough evidence placing him at the scene of the Nov. 1 fire. "The district attorney wants further information that would link Manokian to the fire," Young said.

Glendale Unified School District officials have decided against putting a multimillion-dollar school bond proposal before voters in 1995 in the wake of the recent defeat of a similar measure in Burbank. Citing the continuing recession and subsequent anti-tax sentiment among voters, board of education members said they favored putting on hold a bond issue that would be used to make improvements to many of the district's aging buildings.
