fc » « . FM 6 Says.. It's The prospect of adding a two week course in human sexuality to the Fayetteville-Manlius health curriculum is being studied by school board members. \We know there are controversial issues involved here,\ said Dr. Philip Martin in explaining the proposal, \but experience in our current health classes shows that pupils want and need this in­ formation and parents have ex­ pressed interest in an optional program.\ Dr. Martin said he made the proposal at the beginning of this school year so that the community would have time to consider this is­ sue and that the committee could begin work in October. \By suggesting a non-man­ datory program of limited scope, it is my hope that its consideration will not become high-pitched and overly emotional,\ he said. As outlined by Dr. Martin, the human sexuality unit would be given in the final two weeks of the regular health course. State re­ quirements now mandate one semester health classes taken once in the seventh or eighth grade and once in grades 10, 11, or 12. At present there are two full-time health teachers at FM, Carol Rutherford and Tony Pace with Linda Schmitt added as a part-time teacher in September. Dr. Martin said the committee would report to the Board of Education in time for a decision to affect the September 1980 semester. In making the proposal, Dr. Mar­ tin said he had discussed the human sexuality unit with members of the local clergy and would expect to present a balanced point of view on the controversial topics of abortion and con­ traception. No textbook has been proposed, But... and the school is looking at other • materials used in other schools. i The present health curriculum involved nutrition, first aid, drug and alcohol abuse, use of cigarettes, body physiology and care of the body, Dr. Martin said. ^ Under the optional plan-^ proposed, parents would be notified in writing one month before the j\ human sexuality unit is begun. Since it would be the final two weeks of the 20-week course, those pupils who were excused would probably have two weeks of study hall. The subject covered during the final unit would not be part of the exam, he noted. (6 Our ALL SPORTS Issue New StopLight A full phase, three color traf­ fic signal will probably be installed at the intersection of Salt Springs St. and South Manlius St (Rt. 257) in Fayetteville sometime next year, according to plans of the state Department of Transpor­ tation. '* 'The, signal will be phased to poor din ate with the light already in place at Genesee St. (Rt. 5) and North Manlius St. (Rt. 257). Ron Idzi of the DOT said this week that the new signal at Salt Spring St. would \give guidance\ to drivers, and would help the traffic flow \somewhat\ through the intersection and hopefully end the confusion there. He noted that his office had had several complaints about the traffic flow from citizens, and had notified Fayetteville officials and Assemblyman Hy Miller about the proposed new signal. A sign \Halt Here on Red\ which had controlled nor­ thbound traffic on Rt. 257 at the Salt Springs St. intersec­ tion was removed recently. The new sidewalk from Manlius to the Fayetteville-Manlius High School is in place along Seneca Tnpk, giving FM pupils a way to walk to school without being in the highway. The walk was installed by Manlius Village workmen. Proposes New Restaurant Tom Tarantella, the developer in charge of most of the Dennys Restaurant buildings in the Syracuse area, has a plan to bring one of their franchises to East Genesee St. opposite the Fayetteville Mall. Mr. Tarantella proposed build­ ing a Denny's Restaurant on the southwest corner of Mott Rd. and East Genesee St. u property formerly owned by the Estabrook family. Although the zone for the area is residential, Mr. Tarantella told the Manlius Planning Board Monday that a zone change would be in ac­ cordance with other-changes in the area. \I have worked with other town boards, Clay, Cicero, Fairmont and Syracuse, and we have always come to reasonable terms that were happy for both of us,\ Mr. Tarantella said. Denny's restaurant is a 24 hour, full-menu restaurant, he explained. \We're not a fast food res­ taurant, so you won't have the hustle and bustle of McDonalds or Burger King in the middle of the night,\ he said. \People pass by us and come in for a bite to eat.\ Maple Trees In Trouble Concern for the health and appearance of the many maple trees in and around the village haa prompted the Fayetteville Village Board to seek the ad­ vice of Dr. Howard Miller, professor of entomology and extension specialist at SUNY 's College of En­ vironmental Science and Forestry. Meeting with trustees Mon­ day, Or: Miller recommended thai a survey of the trees be dons to determine the number of trees that need attention and the extent of their damage or disease. He assured the board that he and the school would offer their assistance in this matter but pointed out that the maple tree problem is state-wide and due, in part, to the very cold winter spalls and high in­ cidence of disease. Once the extent of the problem is determined, he said, the village U us tees must decide which trees they will attempt to save and then treat each tree individually with proper pruning and fertilizing.
