By Dale Piper

   Dutton Smith, Chair of the Site Committee and Vice-Chair of the School Board presented Gailer's rebuttals to the major objections to the move, specifically school, truck and pedestrian traffic, the stated industrial use of the area and the fact that the school would not oppose future industry in the park.  Also presented was a petition opposing the school's position by Tony Neri, signed by Industrial Park business owners and management.   Some parents of Gailer students felt that if this site were not available the school might have to close.
