State law already requires TB testing of all students entering the first grade. The county's new policy expands the testing to cover grades one through 12, if the student is moving into Orange County.

Wolff, a Mater Dei High School senior who was "mayor" for a day as part of an annual program to get high school students involved in city government, was amazed at the amount of effort her real-life counterpart, Charles V. Smith, must put into his job. "I just thought it was just a title (but) he actually works," she said. "I think the city officials deserve a lot of credit."
