Supporters had expected the $123-million bond measure to pass after similar efforts succeeded in the Capistrano and Santa Ana Unified districts earlier this month.

Carl Daniel Boese, who now lives in Crestline in San Bernardino County, fidgeted nervously as U.S. District Judge William Matthew Byrne Jr. questioned him about his involvement in the conspiracy and warned him about the possible penalties.

In response to your editorial of Nov. 15, I am pleased to note that you are focusing on what may be the most significant social problem for schools and the community. We couldn't agree more with your words, "What could help is school officials' working with the community and with parents in realistic anti-drug education program." Such an alliance is now in place in the Huntington Beach Union High School District, and an aggressive agenda has been developed. The Huntington Beach Police Department, Ocean View School District, Huntington Beach Union High School District and the community, in conjunction with the Orange County Department of Education, are working together to coordinate efforts in substance-abuse prevention and intervention.
