Senate passes
tuition refund
bill for students
called to duty
Mountain lions threaten
residents of Western U.S.
AUSTIN (AP) — The Senate ap-
roved a bill Monday that would al
ow student reservists called to active
military duty to get a tuition refund
or course credit. The measure was
passed to the House 28-0, without
The bill sponsor, Sen. Rodney El
lis, D-Houston, said the need for
such legislation was brought to his
attention by a constituent attending
the University of Houston.
Ellis said the student was in one of
the first reserve units called up for
the crisis in the Middle East, and
hundreds of student reservists have
been called up since then.
“The intent of this bill is not only
to relieve these students of a finan
cial hardship, but also to let them
know that we are concerned about
them and that they will not be penal
ized for serving their country,” he
Ellis’ bill would allow tuition and
fee refunds, grant students an in
complete grade, or authorize course
credit if the student has finished at
least one half the semester and the
professor says the student has dem
onstrated sufficient proficiency.
It is retroactive to the fall semes
Current law states that colleges
cannot refund tuition and fees in
full after the 12th class day of a se

to the House on voice vote a bill that

Clear Creek Secondary School, the
victim of a mountain lion attack.
Not long thereafter, Colorado
Springs police shot and killed a 151-
pound mountain lion after it at

In September 1989, 5-year-old
Jake Gardipe was killed by a moun
tain lion while riding his tricycle in
his front yard in the small, wooded
town of Evaro in western Montana.
The boy was dragged from the yard,
and his body was found several
hours later near his home. Wardens
and scared residents killed at least
four mountain lions that threatened
humans or attacked livestock over
the summer.
These are just a few of the attacks
reported recently in Montana, Colo
rado, California, Texas, Arizona and
even British Columbia in Canada.
In the weeks since the Lancaster
attack, wildlife officials have spent
long hours meeting with concerned
people who live in the mountain
foothills, which the mountain lions
also call home.
“Even some who have lived here a
long time now believe the lions have
gone mad,” said Mike Sanders of

Colorado Division of Wildlife offi
cials, however, say that’s life in the
West, and people better get used to
it, because the humans aren’t mov
ing out and neither are the moun
tain lions.
“We can’t guarantee anyone’s
safety out there,” said Bob Davies, a
wildlife officer in Colorado Springs.
“There’s a certain risk to living, and
if you live in this part of the country,
this has become a part of it.”
Animal officials say they have no
real guidelines for how to cope with
the mountain lions who share their
home territory. There have only
been seven fatal attacks nationwide
in the past 100 years, and data are
Davies said one of the reasons
people move to the Rocky Mountain
region is to be near wildlife.
“Then they decide it’s an inconve

nate it. It’s not going to happen, he

with mountain lions for years, but
people who move here haven’t the

Humans have built their houses
close to the foothills of the Rocky
Mountains, because these are some
of the choicest spots, featuring natu

and raccoons and even providing
salt licks in their backyards.
