As an administrator with the Cucamonga School District, I was appalled by "Grim Days at Grant High." I find it difficult to comprehend that within the endless hours of Sandy Banks' reporting she couldn't dig up a single sentence on the positives at Grant High School. Thank you for reinforcing the public's perception that education is in a dismal state. As for the principal of Grant High School, Robert Collins, he should enroll in Public Relations 101. Granted financial cutbacks have strapped site administrators.

Customs Commissioner William von Raab said in a statement filed in U.S. District Court in New Orleans that the hiring, part of the Reagan Administration's and Congress' stepped-up war on drugs, "cannot go forward at this time without drug screening."
