Fresno schools chief Carlos Garcia has been named the new superintendent of the Clark County School District, the nation's eighth largest. Garcia, 48, is a Los Angeles native. The Fresno district he now runs is the fourth largest in California, with 79,000 students. In Las Vegas, Garcia will be superintendent of a fast-growing district of 217,000 students. He was named Thursday to replace Supt. Brian Cram, who is retiring in July after 11 years as schools chief.

The Supreme Court stressed again Monday that a single crude remark by a supervisor is not enough to trigger a sexual harassment lawsuit. The justices threw out a discrimination claim brought by a Las Vegas school official who said she was demoted after complaining about her supervisor's comment. In an unsigned opinion, the justices sought to clarify the difference between offensive comments and workplace discrimination.

The present only seems to be bright in the garish glow of the Las Vegas Strip, and the future really has Chris Webster worried. Curfew started for local teen-agers an hour ago, but they are just beginning to appear, cruising by Circus Circus casino in shiny cars with blaring music, hanging out with friends and laughing at tourists with active cameras. "See all the cars going up and down the strip?" asks a cold and bored Webster, 18, as he loiters with friends outside McDonald's.

One teen-ager was shot to death and another critically wounded Friday by a gunman who fired at them as dozens of horrified high school students looked on. The shooting took place a half-block from Bonanza High School, where school had been out for about 25 minutes before the incident. The 19-year-old victim was declared dead at the scene, while a 16-year-old was taken to University Medical Center, where he was listed in critical condition with a gunshot wound to the head.
