School board alarmed

two electric alarms-all set at
staggered times-aren't enough to

After teaching in Juneau 13 years,

Carpenter says he has had the

him with squirt guns.
But he says he didn't start coming to

saying he has received "outstanding
evaluations" as a teacher.

puzzled about the whole thing:
"I've tried going to bed earlier, and
different hours. It doesn't seem to mat-

late or sleeping right at school.
Sometimes I wake up early and
sometimes late. There doesn't seem to
be a time when I wake up. It's strange."
