Squawfish Sewer UAW strikes key GM parts plant Continued from Page A-l tains between it and the Sacramento Valley, was connected to the Sacramento basin, Jones said. Later geomorphic changes connected Clear Lake to the Russian River system. Jones noted that most other Russian River fish also are the same as Sacramento River fish. He commended the Ukiah Rod and Gun Club for its efforts to discourage the squawfish population explosion. There really isn't an effective alternative way to deal with them at this time, he said. Lakes have been poisoned to kill off the fish, but that also poses a risk to drinking water and has political repercussions. In addition, poison wouldn't work in streams, where it can't be confined. To be eligible for the fish derby, contestants need a valid fishing license. The fish need to be 10 inches or larger in length. While it's offering money for the fish, the club isn't calling the derby a bounty. That's because it's illegal to offer a bounty on fish, Townsend said. So instead, the derby is conducted like a lottery. Contestants Marijuana Continued from Page A-l According to the supervisors' staff report, the $60,000 from the DEA will go to "overtime salaries for deputy sheriffs, reserve law enforcement officers, as well as operating costs, including aircraft rental, supplies, fixed assets (excluding vehicles), and other related expenses." bring in their fish and are allowed to draw $2 or $5 play money bills from a box, which they exchange for real money. Townsend said some people do quite well with the derby. "Two guys caught 40 in one afternoon," he said. The Rod and Gun Club funds the derby through salmon barbecues and other fund-raisers. Money and saving steelhead and salmon from squawfish jaws are probably the only reasons to fish for the beasts. According to Jones, squaw- fish tastes pretty good, but it's too bony to prepare at home. The bones dissolve in the canning process, but that's more work than most people want to go through to eat the fish. Squawfish also aren't a popular prize because they aren't much fun to catch, Jones said. "They give a fight but tire quickly," he said. But the squawfish from the derby aren't just tossed, Townsend said, they're recycled into fertilizer. "That's a great use for them," Jones said. Fire Continued from Page A-1 After the couple returned to Ukiah, Kate became even more ill. Bill took her to Ukiah Valley Medical Center, where doctors diagnosed her condition as bacterial meningitis. "They said she had an 8-out- of-10 chance of dying within the next 24 hours," Bill says. But doctors treated Kate "quickly and saved her life." She remained hospitalized for 10 days. Kate says she still suffers residual effects from the illness. Her illness also affected the couple's business. "We were just barely making it," Bill says. Kate's illness "pretty much shut us down." After the evacuation, Bill says, he and Kate were housed in area motels at city expense. But the experience was hardly a pleasant one. "Our treatment by the city was absolutely horrific," he says. And since complaining of their treatment to city officials, Bill claims, the Parkins have been harassed by city police. The backup "ruined our Thanksgiving and ruined our Christmas," Bill says. "I feel like a victim. (They) have no consciences." In her claim, Kate is seeking special damages of more than $25,000 and $100,000 in general damages. She is being represented by Ukiah attorney Michael D. Macomber. The city of Ukiah referred the claim to its insurance company, as it does with all claims. All claimants must file with the city first in order to pursue a lawsuit. NOYO THEATRE Continued from Page A-l excitement should start mowing now, before the grass is completely dry, local fire departments say. Cutting dry grass can start a fire, as witnessed by a recent grass fire at the Ukiah airport. Other anti-fire recommendations include: •Remove flammable vegetation for at least 30 feet around structures. •Clean old leaves, branches and debris from gutters. •Keep tree branches at least 10 feet from chimneys and check the condition of chimney Associated Press DETROIT — The United Auto Workers called a strike today at a key General Motors Corp. stamping plant that makes body parts for some of its most lucrative vehicles, including its full-size light trucks. The strike, the seventh against GM since early 1997, came after negotiators failed to reach agreement by the union's 10 a.m. deadline. Talks went around the clock in the final dav A lengthy strike could cost the No. 1 automaker hundreds of millions of dollars in lost sales of its high-profit pickups, sport utility vehicles and minivans. Like the rest of the industry, GM has been enjoying strong sales of light trucks. The Flint Metal Center north of Detroit makes fenders, doors, hoods and other sheet metal parts for most of GM's full-size light trucks and some cars. screens. •Clear dead branches and limbs scattered by storms. •Prune trees and trim branches 6 to 8 feet from the ground and remove excess debris. That will lessen the chances of a ground fire getting into the trees. •Consider using a chipper instead of burning trimmings. Dearborn said anyone planning to burn trimmings should contact their local fire department for regulations. Burning is prohibited in most of Ukiah and in areas served by the CDF. All burning will be banned by June 30.
