The Seward Phoenix LOG

Expansion project clouded by claim of prior land option – There was some good news and some bad news at the City Council meeting Monday night. The good news was that the new city engineering firm advises strongly against metering of private water services. The bad news is that perhaps there is a roadblock in the way of the proposed University of Alaska Marine Science expansion here, despite the $2 million bond issue which passed only a few weeks ago. Dick Beissner, doing business as Seward Builders, asked Council to hold up action until he had time to get his records from Anchorage. Last spring Beissner maintained he had a valid option the property in question. At that time the Alaska State Housing Authority indicated Beissner has had no option past August 1973. The city is in the process of acquiring the property from ASHA. The planned SMC expansion includes research buildings, dormitories for the graduate students who will study here, and a large domed aquarium is to be built.

Liberty Theatre – Now showing: “The Owl and the Pussycat” and “For Pete’s Sake.” Coming soon: “Murphy’s War,” “Our Time” and “Doctor Zhivago.”

Student records rules change – A new nationwide policy on privacy and right-to-know on students records went into effect Nov. 20 with teachers warned to “clan house of all punitive records and personnel records of students” before that date. This was revealed to the school board at its Nov. 11 meeting. As Dr. Jim Hall explained, “The only policy we have at present is that we will not release the names of students and addresses to anyone but school officials.” The new policy decrees that parents have the right to inspect their children’s school records, and other persons or agencies are not to have access without parental consent.

This Week in City Hall – Looking ahead to next week, the City Council will hold a special meeting on Monday, Dec. 2.

Chugach Natives make first land selections – Chugach Natives Incorporated filed with the Bureau of Land Management Wednesday for 109,169 acres of land within the Chugach region.
