Nelson said the 1990 census figures don't reflect the tough economic times people have had in the past few years.

Although African-Americans were closer to parity in Arizona, Indians, who make up 5.5 percent of the state's population, were much further away. With a median household income of $13,004, Indian household incomes in this state were only 44 percent that of Anglos and dropped dramatically from 56 percent in the 1980 census. Indian household incomes were lower than in Arizona in only three states, West Virginia, North Dakota and South Dakota. The incomes were lowest in South Dakota, at $11,017. And although Asians nationally had about 117 percent the household income of Anglos, in Arizona, those households had a median income 96 percent that of Anglos.

Asians make up 1.5 percent of Arizona's population. GOP hopeful on the move Opponent assails address changes By Steve Yozwiak The Arizona Republic Doug Wead, a Republican candidate for Congress in eastern Arizona's hotly contested District 6, has listed four different addresses on eight public documents since moving to Arizona two years ago. The list of documents and addresses shows that Wead, 46, has hopscotched across the north and east Valley, prompting criticism from one of his GOP opponents, attorney Phil MacDonnell, that Wead lacks roots in the state and is a political opportunist. "You need a chart to keep track of where he is," said MacDonnell, 44, who has lived in Arizona for 18 years. "It seems like he was trying to keep up with the district lines as they kept changing." The state Legislature floated numerous plans for redrawing congressional-district boundaries before becoming deadlocked in March.

In May, a panel of federal judges set the boundary lines. Wead explained the numerous addresses as moves of convenience needed to accommodate his work as a consultant to a French home builder and a need for his pregnant wife to be close to a hospital she liked.

If they want to play with pigs or to feed chickens, all they have to do is stroll across a playground. Camelback Desert School, which opened last month on the grounds of what used to be a sprawling private residence, has a small menagerie of-barnyard animals to entertain and educate its 50 pupils.

The animals include three Vietnamese potbellied pigs named Chase, Pinky and Piglet, pigmy goats Van Goat and Happy Star, and an assortment of ducks and chickens.

Paychecks lose By Judy Nichols The Arizona Republic Hispanic households in Arizona in 1989 made only 73 cents for every dollar Anglo households made, according to U.S. census figures released this week.

And they had lost ground from a decade earlier, when they made 84 cents for every dollar Anglos made. American Indian households also took a smaller share of Arizona's pie, plummeting to only 44 percent of Anglo households' income in the 1990 census from 56 percent in the 1980 count. Only African-Americans gained ground, to 70 percent from 68 percent. "Whenever the economy is pinched, minorities feel it more sharply," said Edward Valenzuela, former president of the Arizona Hispanic Community Forum. The 1990 census figures said the median household income for Anglos was for people of Asian descent, Hispanics, blacks, and American Indians, $13,004.

Comparisons between the 1980 and 1990 censuses for Asians were not possible because 1980 figures were not available. Valenzuela attributed the comparative drop in Hispanic household income to underemployment. Even though Hispanics make up 18.8 percent of the state's population and are the largest Arizona minority group, they are underrepresented in high-paying jobs, Valenzuela said. "I look at the business promotions (reported in the newspaper), and I notice the paucity of Hispanics," he said. "On corporate boards, there is an absence of Hispanics." Household income for African-Americans, who make up 3 percent of Arizona's population, is closer to parity with Anglos than it is in the nation as a whole, where their household income is 63 percent that of Anglos.

"Some children are apprehensive about school, but when you can go outside and feed a rooster, the perception that school has to be regimented goes away," Barton said. "The mere presence of animals makes them feel more at ease." The three pigs were the picture of contentment Thursday, feasting on alfalfa pellets while a group of preschoolers giggled at their bulging bellies. "The pigs are pretty snorty," 4-year-old Stephanie Johnson said. "I like the ducks because they're pretty." Carolyn Song, also 4, said she prefers the goats, "but sometimes they run away from me."

According to an affidavit, a private investigator hired by Klis found her vehicle, which had been borrowed by Klos, about one block south of King's home.

Neighbors reportedly said it had been parked there since June 7. King has been jailed since mid-June on an unrelated charge of possession of marijuana, authorities said. He remained jailed Friday. His arraignment is scheduled for next Friday. The rest of Klos' remains are missing.

Torres, 25, is seeking a divorce from Scott, who is seeking to annul the December 1981 marriage. "I made the allegations because I was angry with my husband and wanted to hurt him," she stated in the affidavit, which was signed Thursday. Torres said she administered the drugs to herself without her husband's knowledge. Despite the affidavit, the board said it has ample information from a psychiatric evaluation of Scott, which concluded that he is unfit to practice.

Graham Gabin King, 30, is charged with first-degree murder in the indictment made public Friday. Klos' leg was found June 7 in a garbage bin in north Phoenix. His girlfriend, Patricia Klis, is quoted in a search warrant as saying that Klos went to King's house in west Phoenix a day earlier to deny impregnating King's girlfriend.

"The big thing is, who gets to person could not have survived that type of episode," said Detective Leo Speliopolous, spokesman for the Phoenix Police Department. About four weeks after Klos disappeared, Klis identified the leg as Klos' on the basis of scars near the knee, calf and ankle. The leg, hacked off at the upper thigh, was submitted to a variety of tests as authorities attempted to identify the victim, including DNA blueprinting, officials said.

Torres allegedly had been beaten by Scott and, while at a hospital, told investigators about being injected with the drugs. The Sheriffs Office contacted the U.S.

Drug Enforcement Agency, which polices physicians' prescribing practices. The joint investigation by the DEA and the board concluded with Friday's action. Scott was placed on one year's probation in the domestic-violence case. His prescribing privileges had been suspended July 2. After his therapy, the board will consider whether to grant Scott privileges to practice medicine again.

Gilbert Road, Mesa By David Cannolla The Arizona Republic The state Board of Osteopathic Examiners on Friday suspended the license of a Parker physician for six months and ordered him to undergo psychiatric therapy after hearing allegations that he injected his wife with Demerol so he could have sex with her. The five-member board took the action Friday evening, after a one-hour informal hearing at which it concluded that he is unfit to practice and could pose a danger to patients. Roger David Scott, 50, agreed to the suspension rather than face a formal hearing at which his license could have been revoked permanently. Scott refused to speak with a reporter after the hearing. At the hearing, he and his attorney, Charles Cruise of Parker, produced an affidavit signed by his wife, Barbara.
