The school district is asking the Orange County Transportation Authority to reduce bus-pass fees for high school students. Overcrowding in Santa Ana Unified School District has prevented some students from attending the high schools they normally would, Deputy Supt. John Bennett told the OCTA board of directors last week. And the school district, Bennett said, doesn't have the resources to bus every student. Many students do not have access to a car, he added.

The Antelope Valley Union High School District will follow the course of a growing number of year-round elementary schools by placing its first high school on a similar schedule, officials said Thursday. Highland High School, one of five campuses in the Antelope Valley Union High School District, will convert to the year-round schedule in July, 1991, officials said. The school, now in bungalows, is scheduled to move into permanent facilities about that time.

Construction will begin next year on an elementary school that has sat half-finished for four years because of a contract dispute, Los Angeles Unified School District officials said. The $9.7-million school at East 42nd Street and McKinley Avenue was proposed to serve up to 850 students, easing overcrowding at nearby elementary schools. But construction was halted in June 1996 because of a funding dispute between the district and the contractor.

Glory days , well they'll pass you by, Glory days , in the wink of a young girl's eye . . . --from "Glory Days" by Bruce Springsteen Rarely do we have the opportunity to examine portions of our lives in precisely divided chunks of time. For the most part, life is a continuum of days that stretch into weeks, months and years without sharply defined beginning and end points. Suddenly we are older, without ever realizing just when it happened.

The developer had constructed affordable-housing projects up and down the West Coast with little controversy, but he sensed trouble when he saw the flier circulating in upscale Mission Viejo.

The drawing looked more like the notorious Cabrini-Green project in Chicago than the 168-unit suburban apartment complex that Michael Hall wanted to build in south Orange County.
