(( Call it the October surprise a few days late -- George W. Bush, riding a slim lead in most polls, was forced to admit something he hoped would never come out.
(SOT: George W. Bush)
(NARR:) The Texas Governor was only 30 years old when he was pulled over while driving a car near his family's summe

r home in Kennebunkport Maine. He pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of driving under the influence.
He had visited a local bar and failed one sobriety test on the road, and then a second test at a police station.


He paid a 150-dollar fine and had his driving privileges revoked in the state of Maine for a short time. An ancient mistake Bush admits --but he wonders about the timing.
(SOT: Bush) 919 "I have been very candid about my past I find it interesting it has come out five days before the elec

tion."
(NARR:)


Bush has often acknowledged past mistakes -- and quit drinking altogether 14 years ago. But in a 1999 interview with CBS station WBZ in Boston, he denied there was any so-called smoking gun. "People have been looking into my past since I was in politics, and ALL people want to know is if I will bring dignity to the office" cowan: "Bush's wife Laura was calling their twin daughters to tell them about the news -- a mistake that had been a closely guarded family secret for years. Bush says he never spoke about it because he was never asked, and he was ashamed, Lee Cowan, CBS News, Chicago.))

It would put grades six and seven in the high school.
Many residents say throwing grades six through 12 under one roof will make things worse.
But school administrators say they'll try to keep the middle schoolers separate.
