ELIAN GONZALEZ GOES TO SCHOOL IN MIAMI.
Cuban boy Elian Gonzalez takes a wheeled school book bag after his great uncle Lazaro Gonzalez unloads it from the family car January 18 as he begins his school day. Relatives in Miami are preparing to take their custody fight to U.S. federal court in the next few days. Gonzalez was picked up at sea November 25, 1999 after clinging to an inner tube for two days. His mother and 10 others died when their small boat sank in the failed smuggling operation.
