It was John O. Tynes, the mayor, who presented a proclamation designating Dec. 1 as World AIDS Day in the city. But it was Tynes, the father, who has lost a son to the disease, who said he would spend the rest of his life comforting people with AIDS. Both roles came together for Tynes at Tuesday's City Council meeting. With a section of the AIDS Memorial Quilt hanging behind council members, the mayor issued the proclamation to representatives of the Orange County HIV Planning Advisory Council.

When John Tynes capped nearly 40 years as an educator in 1979, he had plenty to show for it, but his accomplishments were by no means ended. Over the years, he had worked his way up from athletic coach and teacher to superintendent of Placentia's schools. Two buildings--an elementary school and a park building--and a street, Tynes Drive, were named for him. He pioneered special education programs that were adopted by educators across the nation.

The commission now plans to take action on the proposal at its Aug. 16 meeting.
