That changed last year with legislation that allows disabled hunters to use equipment or hunt at a time previously forbidden. With the flexible new permit, 15 disabled hunters took to the woods last fall. So far this year the number of permits more than doubled, to 34. If this kind of progress branches out and continues, it could change the way we all view outdoor sports. Fred Hurley, the Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife deputy commissioner, said the law came about because the department was challenged repeatedly about the opportunities it offered to the disabled. He said the language in the law before restricted the department from doing more. Now, he said, there is no limit to the hunters who can be considered for the special permit. Hurley said next on the committee's agenda is reviewing opportunities for other disabled outdoorsmen and women in other sports. He said Maine's dynamic new law charges the committee's eight members with the task of creating other opportunities.

Americans Say to Congress - "Help Disabled Children,
But Not at the Expense of Non-Disabled Children!"
American Association of School Administrators (AASA),
Sen. Susan Collins, Sen. Paul Wellstone, Rep. Charles Bass Release Dramatic New Findings on Children with Disabilities. New Luntz/Laszlo Survey Shows:

Washington, DC– June 13, 2002– The American Association of School Administrators (AASA) today released a new Luntz/Laszlo poll that shows 84 percent of Americans oppose having opportunities denied to non-disabled children because of the lack of funding. Because funding of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) is mandatory, the shortfall in funds has typically been made up from other education funding. The shortfall has forced state and local governments to cut funding and eliminate programs for non-disabled students. Sens. Susan Collins (R-Maine) and Paul Wellstone (D-Minn.) and Rep. Charles Bass (R-N.H.) announced the bi-partisan poll results at a Capitol Hill press conference.
"For 26 years, Congress has forced state and local governments to choose between disabled children and non-disabled children," said AASA Executive Director Paul Houston. "Every child deserves a good education.

Maine School Library Facilities Handbook PREFACE
Table of Contents
Considerations Essential Areas Comparison Tables ... Committee Excellent school library media centers require excellent programs, staff, materials, and facilities. The Maine School Library Facilities Handbook is designed to assist school library media specialists and architects in planning new or renovated facilities to meet the continually changing needs of both school children and school communities. Computers and telecommunications continue to transform how students access, use and create information. Goals 2000, the State of Maine Learning Results, Improving America's Schools Act (IASA), and other school reform legislation carry the expectation that all students will be able users of a variety of resources and technologies. Students in our schools must develop the skills needed to locate, evaluate, and use information in order to meet their academic and personal needs, and to participate fully in a technological society. The school library media specialist, in collaboration with classroom teachers, provides a library media program in which individual users, groups of students, and whole classes learn, develop, and practice these skills. These expanded expectations for students, along with the need to follow federal ADA requirements to accommodate the needs of the disabled, necessitate a new look at library design. Library media center facilities must provide for a variety of learning and teaching styles and access to new technologies. The library media center must be flexible and incorporate spaces which can accommodate a variety of simultaneous activities: whole class instruction, individual research, group work, recreational reading, and quiet study. ADA requirements often necessitate more space and special equipment or furnishings to accommodate the needs of physically disabled students. The growing role of school library media centers necessitates additional areas and increased square footage.

Jeffords's Special-Ed Plan Revived
As power shifts, Democrats press for full funding. By Susan Milligan, Globe Staff, 6/4/2001 WASHINGTON - Newly empowered by the defection of Republican Senator James Jeffords, Senate Democrats take control this week with plans to push for a project he has championed for more than a quarter-century: a special-education program that would funnel as much as $100 million yearly to Massachusetts. Local school boards around the country have long been fighting for the program, the cost of which is now heavily borne by property taxpayers. In Maine, advocates estimate that full federal funding of the Individuals With Disabilities Education Act, or IDEA, could reduce property taxes as much as 5 percent. The White House and Republican leaders in Congress have argued against committing the federal government to paying its legally mandated 40 percent share of the program. Although Jeffords and other supporters forced a voice vote on the Senate floor last month in favor of the plan, it appeared unlikely that a Republican Congress would include the measure in the final education bill and in the appropriations process. But with Senate Democrats set to retake the helm this week, ''I'm absolutely convinced'' the $181 billion over 10 years will be approved, said Senator Edward M. Kennedy, Democrat of Massachusetts and the incoming chairman of the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee.

On the lighter side, CNN Education/AP report that Prune burgers may be coming to school cafeterias ! Some new products that the Agriculture Department may offer to schools in the near future were student-tested recently at Van Ness Elementary in Washington, D.C.. New items tested included hamburgers made of a blend of beef and prune puree, a raisin-tomato barbecue dip for chicken nuggets, sweet potato pancakes, and turkey-prune hot dogs. USDA official John Lund spoke to the obvious concern of any experienced teacher for prune burgers saying that there wasn't enough prune content in the burgers to have any laxative effect. I sure hope Mr. Lund is right.
