Every year, Mexican immigrants in the United States send tens of billions of dollars to relatives still south of the border, and for their largesse are hit with billions more in fees. Born in Mexico and now an American citizen living in South Philadelphia, Rosalba Meneses, 24, knows the bite of commissions and foreign-exchange charges when she sends money three times a year, totaling $1,000, to an aunt in Puebla state. "She uses it for groceries, clothing and spending," said Meneses, who pays commercial services - including Western Union, Sigue, and the online Xoom - to make the transfers, known as remittances.

Entering his senior year last fall, Richard Watson was an honor student who ranked 19th academically in his 374-member class. He also was a starter for his school's football team and had been designated a captain for its baseball team. Despite his academic and athletic prowess, however, Watson is not playing baseball this spring for Edgewood High School. And the reason he has been prevented from doing so caused his family to do battle recently with the New Jersey State Interscholastic Athletic Association (NJSIAA)

Riverside High will have to forfeit two football victories because it used an ineligible player. The NJSIAA has penalized the Rams for using the player in a 35-0 win over Maple Shade on Sept. 25 and a 42-7 triumph over Palmyra on Oct. 2. Instead of being 3-1, the Rams are now 1-3. School officials declined to comment, saying that all questions on the matter should be directed to the NJSIAA. "The forfeits will stand," Boyd Sands, the NJSIAA executive director, said yesterday.

Bensalem school officials said last week they were surprised by the quick and large response from teachers to plans for the first graduate-level course to be offered by the school district's Bensalem Academy. Originally, there was to be room for 23 teachers, but the course drew interest from 31 teachers in the first three days it was advertised, Assistant Superintendent David Archibald told the school board Wednesday during the monthly agenda meeting. Because of the surge of interest in the course, called "Writing Across the Curriculum With Computers," the board decided to split the course into two groups to be taught by two computer teachers.

A law signed Thursday by Gov. Christie pushed New Jersey a big step forward in the race to become the first state to erect offshore wind turbines. Legislators said the action could bring hundreds of green-energy jobs to Paulsboro, which they hope will become a hub of turbine manufacturing. Christie hopes to secure the title of first in the nation to attract developers and manufacturers associated with wind power. The law applies the same tool that helped the state become second, behind California, in solar-power.

The Springfield High School Class of 1990 will have to meet new graduation requirements because the school board voted 6-0, with three members absent, to adopt a new policy at last week's meeting. But the new policy is not much different from the old policy, which was far tougher than that required by the state, according to Superintendent of Schools Charles McLaughlin. "Eighty-five to ninety percent of our students were already fulfilling or exceeding the requirements set forth by the state board of education," McLaughlin said after the Thursday night meeting.

The Bensalem Township school board decided on Tuesday to establish an academy where its teachers could take graduate-level courses, but only for a probationary period of one year. Assistant Superintendent David Archibald, who serves on the staff development committee that proposed the academy in August 1988, said the probationary period would allay the board's concerns over the financial impact the Bensalem Academy for Professional Development would have. Archibald said he expected the administration to come back to the board in December with a request to run the first academy course early next year.
