The fees will add $3,750 to the cost of building a 2,500-square-foot house. The fees are the maximum amount permitted by a state law, which took effect in January.

The Paramount Unified School District board adopted a $37-million budget Tuesday night, an increase of nearly $2 million over last year's budget. Board President Joseph M.

The new budget does not include raises for teachers or non-teaching employees; contracts for both classifications are currently in negotiation.

School board members have voted 3 to 2 to fire veteran Supt. Richard B. Caldwell when his contract expires next June. The board took the action Tuesday night after a three-hour closed session.

Travelers to New Mexico may delight in the fact that there are nearly 1,000 collectible pueblo Indian potters working in New Mexico's 19 pueblos, or tribal settlements. Since pieces range in price and quality, there is pottery for all budgets and most tastes. Once used as practical storage vessels, pueblo Indian pottery has become a highly respected art form, helped partly by tourism. The change began 50 years ago when tourists bought the pottery as souvenirs.

Getting there: Our imaginary Chile Trail begins in southwestern Colorado (about a four-hour drive from Denver over excellent highway) and ends at the southern border of New Mexico, 44 miles from El Paso, Tex. An automobile is mandatory. Start the journey in Denver, Albuquerque or El Paso, all served by major airlines. If renting a car, be sure it has enough power to negotiate mountain roads if you plan to explore the high country north of Santa Fe.
