Committee visitors will observe the operations of schools in Newport, Taft, Dallas, Philomath, Toledo and other locations with similar enrollments. "It's important to know how other schools that size are organ- ized," Kelley said. "For instance, if there are six English teachers, is there a head English teacher or is the department organized another way?" Kelley said consolidation would also likely place school athletic teams in a different league. "We would be playing bigger schools, but we wouldn't be playing in Portland like some people think we might be," he said. The committee is also proceeding with efforts to organize and fund a consolidation study, and hopes to approach the Sheridan and Willa- mina schools boards with specific costs for the study by June. The work will be done by employees of the Oregon School Boards Association. Cost estimates range up to $12,000, but the com- mittee hopes to reduce the amount significantly Kelley said the group hopes to have the study completed by this fall so that the consolidation issue can appear on the May 1992 primary election ballot.

Spa Durant, a 1986 graduate of Sheridan High School, was among the first American troops deployed to the gulf. He was a cook for a unit fwing Patriot missiles from Dha- hran. In a letter to his family published by The Sun, be desbed his war experience and the coc- lions of life under attack by Iraqi SCUD missiles. "He sounded real excited to be home," his mother said Monday. "He's expecting to get home leave within two weeks." Durant told his mother that he was greeted by a welcomin$ crowd of more than 2,000. "He said everyone was hugging everne else, welcoming them home and congratulating them," his mother said. "He said it was won- derful." El Paso is Durant's home base. His wife and two young children have lived with his mother in Shed- dan since he was deployed.
