(September 2000) Rick Mermelstein, Coordinator of the T.E.A.C.H. program for Sober Living By The Sea, a drug treatment program in Newport Beach, California, 800-647-0042, wodsomseekr@msn.com, announced they are seeking new affiliations with colleges, counseling providers and recovery oriented organizations throughout the country in order to coordinate follow-up services to graduates of Sober Living By The Sea who move elsewhere. 

(September 27, 2000) It is with sadness we received word of the passing of David A. Giem, M.D., founder of the Crater Lake School near Klamath, Oregon. Woodbury Reports publisher, Lon Woodbury, remembers several pleasant occasions when he was impressed with the quality of Dr. Giem as a human being. Lon associated with Dr. Giem when he was in the process of founding the school, and visited Dr. Giem during early days of Crater Lake School.

(Aug/Sept. 2000) Lorri Hanna, of Soltreks, Duluth, Minnesota, 218-525-5803, soltreks@computerpro.com, was featured in the regional publication The Area Woman, which described her as “Nurturing by Nature.”

(September 27, 2000) The New Leaf Academy, Bend, Oregon 541-317-0844, newleaf@bendcable.com, announced they are opening their second school and are beginning to enroll students in the new school. The original campus, now called New Leaf Academy – Green Ridge, was founded in May of 1997. The new campus will be called New Leaf Academy – Rock Mesa. Both schools will serve the same population, girls ages 10 through 13 at the time of admission. Craig Christiansen will handle admissions for both schools. Jane Samuel will be Headmistress at Rock Mesa, Carol Ranstad will be Director of Academics for both schools, and Marci Padgett will continue as Headmistress at Green Ridge while supervising all therapeutic programs.

(October 5, 2000) According to Spokesman-Review, attorneys for two ex-CEDU students argued to the Idaho Supreme Court that the students should be able to bring their case before a jury. The students alleged that the North Idaho schools have poorly trained staff who physically and verbally abused them. “The 1998 lawsuit stemmed from information parents and lawyers learned about the school after a student riot in January 1997.” CEDU had appealed a District Court Judge ruling that said the arbitration clause suggested by CEDU didn’t apply because the students were technically not a part of the contract. “At issue is the right of parents to contract for their minor children and whether those children have a right to proceed with their own cases.”
