Salmon Continued from Page A-l Salmon population of Northern and Central California as a healthy and prosperous commercial and sport fishery." The demands included guidelines, enforcement, establishment and funding of a scientific team, a moratorium on timber harvesting in all riparian corridors until new rules are in place, state commitment to the Coho's recovery on private lands, revision of the habitat conservation plan laws, regulations and processes, and that the state revise sustained yield plan rules. In an interview following the forum, Bell said, "Almost any change that has come about recently regarding land use practices affecting salmon has come from the threat of or litigation. Volunteerism has not worked and is too slow to prevent the complete collapse of the salmon stock in California." Continuing he said, "If the NMFS, the EPA and Fish and Game fail to put in adequate land use regulations for watershed affecting the recovery of salmon, in the face of known scientific information, what choice do informed citizens have but litigation or civil disobedience - it's inevitable if the government fails to act - it's the only thing left. "The burden of recovery is squarely on the backs of fishermen," he exclaimed. "I know there are hundreds of thousands of extremely angry fishermen, sportfishers - mainstream, not environmental radicals, who are willing to take direct action." This group, he said, includes doctors, lawyers, carpenters, waiters - those who see the loss of salmon. He said he does not condone civil disobedience, but, "I see this on the horizon." "Our streams are choked with sediment and fishermen have been choked with regulations and process," Bell said, "20 years of process." According to Withers, as many as 40,000 jobs have been lost due to the declining fish population. Zeke Grader, spokesman for the Pacific Coast Federation of Fishermen's Associations, got a standing ovation with his impassioned speech beginning with, "I am filling the speaker's slot that was to be filled by Nat Bingham. Pay Continued from Page A-l ballot, Scaramella said: "Everyone, it seemed to me, realized that if it went to a vote, it would probably not pass." In any case, a vote would be purely advisory, as it would have to be the Board of Supervisors itself that would have the final yes or no on any raise. Another option for the supervisors, Cliburn said, would be to pass on this committee's recommendations to the grand jury. "They have historically addressed (raises for the board) in the past," he said. The next meeting for the salary committee is scheduled for June 25, although no meeting place has been set yet. These are public meetings, and Scaramella said he thought his colleagues "would certainly entertain" anybody who wanted Although he is physically not here, his spirit lives on. If anyone out there thinks the interest is flagging we will redouble the efforts to bring back the salmon," he said. "This is the home where the salmon restoration began 30 years ago - what began then, we will continue to carry out until the fish are thick in the streams." "First and foremost, we must have recovery - nothing less than that," Grader said, "not just some incremental 'tinkering of our Forest Practice Act.'" He emphasized there must be equity among the stakeholders. Today, he said, "there is no fishery on the coast because we felt it was necessary for recovery - if fishermen can be held to those standards, why can't everybody else?" He demanded accountability with public access to open books, adequate program funding, citing the funding for highway programs with freeways to nowhere...and "the egregious act - that the future of the North Coast is decided in meetings in Texas...the North Coast is not the Third World...we want to be at the negotiating table." Representing the sportfishing community, Tom Wesloh said, "Fisherfolk went ahead and negotiated - the result is we no longer fish for Coho Salmon in California." He said the fish can bounce back if they have the habitat and that is the real problem that needs to be addressed. What would happen, he asked, if other industries were given the choice of "take it or quit fishing (logging or whatever)? When we made choices it was for the fish." The agencies are going to have to provide the incentives and encouragements, he said, for other industries. Vivian Bolin, speaking for the Noyo Women for Fisheries, said the quality of nutrients derived from salmon are not comparable to anything else. "Farm-raised fish raised on drugs don't cut it." The salmon provided jobs for the fishing fleet, money spent in Fort Bragg, and the salmon brought ocean nutrients to other life forms such as birds, she said. "How can future generations forgive us if we allow them to become extinct?" Bolin asked. Gingrich wants all textbooks replaced with personal computers to express an opinion to the committee on the pay raise issue. Asked if he knew when the committee's final recommendations might be coming out, Cliburn said: "I'd like to give it a couple of months." In addition to talking to past supervisors, Cliburn said the committee planned to talk to future- supervisor Tom Lucier and candidates for the 5th District seat Greg Nelson and David Colfax. "We would also like to visit a few other counties that have aides," he said, "and see how that's working out for them. "The more we encompass, the longer it's going to take," Cliburn said. "But I don't care if it takes until the end of my term (December 1998), as long as we do a respectable job for the people." Associated Press ATLANTA — The onrush of technology will make textbooks obsolete in a few years and they should be replaced with personal computers, House Speaker Newt Gingrich says. "One of the goals should be to replace all textbooks with a PC," Gingrich, R-Ga., told the Super- comm trade show at the Georgia World Congress Center on Monday. "I would hope within five years they would have no more textbooks." Gingrich said personal computers are the new focus for Salmonella bacterid tests on cereal come back positive Associated Press MINNEAPOLIS — Salmonella bacteria were found inside unopened boxes of toasted oat cereal made by Malt-O-Meal Inc., the U.S. Food and Drug Administration confirmed today. The Minneapolis-based company voluntarily recalled up to 3 million pounds of its plain toasted oat cereal Friday after the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that some of its cereal was the likely source of 188 cases of food poisoning in 11 states. No deaths were reported. FDA technicians then took samples from 15 unopened boxes of the company's Millville brand cereal, combined them into a composite sample and tested for the agona strain of salmonella, FDA spokesman Don Aird said today from Malt-O-Meal's Northfield plant, 40 miles south of Minneapolis. The positive results that came learning and students should be given one when they enter first grade. His suggestion drew criticism from Harriet Tyson of Washington, who wrote "A Conspiracy of Good Intentions: America's Textbook Fiasco." Computers are terrific sources of information but they provide no moral or philosophical guidance, she said. "The world is drowning in information," she told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. "What kids need is structure. A kid needs a written, organized, portable source of knowledge." Find the pet for you in Journal Classifieds Transit Continued from Page A-l authority will turn to other funding sources, including the state's Intercity Bus Program, from which the authority hopes to obtain a $400,000 grant. Although there are some potential roadblocks to the project, involving the construction of a crossing at Clay Street and an additional entrance from Leslie Street, Richard hopes a final decision on the project will be made within a year. Add another six months for design work, he said, and "that brings us up to the first of the millennium" before construction can begin. back Monday indicate the contamination happened before the boxes were sealed at the plant. The FDA also found the bacteria in one opened box of Milville cereal obtained from a customer, Aird said. The agency was still working with the company to find out how the cereal was contaminated, and other types of the company's cereals also will be examined. "We're going to continue to look for other product with the same problem," Aird said. The Millville brand was the first Malt-O-Meal-produced cereal to be suspected. Grocers were asked to pull Malt-O-Meal brand plain Toasty-Os and Toasted Oats from their shelves, as well as plain toasted oat cereals sold under 38 other brand names. The salmonella cases were reported in Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Missouri, New York, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Iowa, Kansas, Wisconsin and West Virginia. Health officials believe six Minnesota cases Jso may be linked to the cereal.
