Audet placed the administrator's job on a list of budget cuts totaling more than $107,000. The admini- strator's position would account for $65,390. Other proposed cuts include elim- inating outdoor school next year to save $4,730 and trimming transpor- tation costs by $12,000 by eliminat- ing half-day in-service days and making them full-day instead. The budget committee will review Audet's list at 7 p.m. Friday in the Wiilamina Elementary School library. Two locals hurt in Highway 18 crash Jody L.

Not really. Mail order prescriptions might save you about two cents per day per prescription, but you have to give up the quick, personal service you've come to expect from us. One of the downfalls of mail order is that it may take a couple of weeks to get a prescription that we can fill while you wait. Plus we're right here so we can tell you all the important information you need to know about your prescription and instantly answer any questions you might have.

Rosalie Ayora has resigned as Chapman Grade School principal, a job she filled this school year. Ayora replaced Harry Shipman who had filled the principal's post for eight years but faced criticism for discipline problems at the school. Despite Ayora's take-charge style, discipline problems at Chapman are still a major concern. Some educat- ors feel the school should be div- ided in half with the 4th through 6th grades in one half and the 7th and 8th grades in the other. Board member Dick Paay said at a recent budget meeting that Chap- man's discipline problems are the No. 1 need in the district; that's why Paay supports spending $44,000 to send teachers from Chapman and Fauiconer Elementary Schools to a 7-day summer class to learn how to communicate more effectively with students. The expenditure has been questioned by several budget com- mittee members who have said the money might be better spent on equipment.
