They said they had no special plans for the money, planning to oav bills and buy a few of the things that might nave oeen outside their easy financial grasp before the windfall. By PATRICK BEACH Rsdttar Stuff Wrttvr Nearly a week after they won a 2.4 million prize from the state of Iowa, a Des Moines couple ambled into the Iowa lottery office Tuesday to pick up their first J90.000 check. 'Zi Carol Rivas and her husband, Tony, both 39, both of 1740 S.E. Park Ave. and both the very picture of calm, talked about what they'd done n' between winning last Wednesday's Jowa lotto drawing and appearing at a news conference Tuesday. The ticket was bought at the Hy-Vee Food Store at 1300 E. Park Ave. a few hours before the drawing. Carol Rivas said she watched the reg- ular Wednesday night jackpot draw-ing and called Tony, who was at his mother's house, saying: "You're not going to believe this. I just won the lottery." This Tout Includes July 21 BUS TOURS But Statehouse lobbyists said the large amounts involved in the case have prompted lawmakers to take another look at the issue of capping the insurance sales. Had Bankers Association officials been alert, they would have discovered the discrepancies in commissions earlier. In their petition, the bankers say Schaefer was a corporate vice president who "has failed and refused to account for and pay" commissions she received. The group said it believes Schaefer, either individually or through Colorado-based companies she heads, "collected large sums of money in the form of commissions." In a counterclaim, Schaefer said she had an oral contract with the agency allowing her to keep commissions. She said the agency offered that benefit as an inducement to her to leave her prior job to join the agency. Schaefer said she was hired in 1980 by the bankers to help sell a variety of insurance products. She contends the bankers were wrong in firing her and in interfering in her businesses. She also contends her reputation has been injured by the bankers' actions and she asks the court for an unspecified amount of damages from the bankers. Milner said the suit has nothing to do with the legislation to cap the amount of insurance a bank may ALASKA TOUR 26 DAYS thru August 15, 1991 ARE THE BEST TOURS Edmonton Mol Dene Notional Pat Travel the Alcan Highway Tour of Anchaoge Frantic Foltes Review in Columbia Glacier and Whitenorse Valdej 52899 cost is per person based on double occupancy Railroad Ride Kkjane Notional Pa Narrow Gage Salmon Boke dinner in 2 Day Inside Passage Cruise FarrDanla Gondold Ride In Banff LARRY RITLAND TOURS 2004 McCarthy, Ames, IA 5001 0, 51 5-292-1 395 TOUR PRICE INCLUDES: Transportation, lodging for 25 nights, luggage handling, 7 meals.

In January, Tommy Lee Williams 19, turned himself in to Des Moines police following the death of Shannon Turner, 17. Police had found Turner shot to death in the basement of a house at 1417 McCormick Ave. After interviewing seven witnesses on two occasions, investigators decided that Turner apparently stepped into the line of fire as Williams was pointing the gun and that the death was not intentional. Williams had been charged with voluntary manslaughter, which carries a sentence of up to 10 years in prison. Polk County Attorney John Sarcone said he would abide by the grand jury's decision and not prosecute the case. In other court news: A Polk County judge ruled Monday that a teen-ager should be prosecuted as an adult for carrying a homemade gun. Jeremy Joseph Lisle, 17, of 2237 S. Union St. faces two years in prison and $5,000 in fines if found guilty. If he had been prosecuted as a juvenile, he would have been released when he turned 18. In March, Lisle was arrested for carrying a homemade gun loaded with a bullet. Police took the gun away from the boy at Eighth and Locust streets shortly after they stopped one group of teen-agers from chasing another group.

Cohan Call piiKTi By DAVID YEPSEN RNUKr Stiff Writer An insurance agency owned by the Iowa Bankers Association has sued a former employee, accusing her of improperly pocketing commissions that should have gone to the agency. In a counterclaim, the employee, Margie V. Schaefer of West Des Moines, denied the charge and said she had an oral agreement with the agency to keep commissions she earned. Documents filed in Polk County District Court do not specify the amount of money involved. State-house sources said the amount is more than $900,000. According to court documents, Iowa Bankers Insurance and Services Inc. is asking the court for an unspecified "substantial sum" to "fully and fairly compensate" the agency. Neil Milner, chief executive officer for the Bankers Association, said the group is in a dispute over the commissions. He said the association formed the agency to sell insurance to member banks. Banks often purchase life insurance for key employees or for all employees of the bank as a fringe benefit. At issue in the litigation is who should get the commissions on the sale of the Insurance. Schaefer's attorney, William Ser-angeli, said neither he nor his client could comment about the suit. Neither Milner nor Serangeli would discuss amounts involved in the case.

Closed Session Harold Kramme moved to go into Closed Ses- Police returned Tuesday to an area marked by a psychic northwest of Des Moines but could find no traces of Johnny Gosch, the West Des Moines boy who apparently was abducted more than eight yean ago. "She described a bridge and a compost pile and some lumber and old boards. There is a bridge there and a fork in the creek and a bunch of junk boards so we decided to have a look," said West Des Moines police Sgt Ber-nie Taylor. The location was described by psychic Greta Alexander who sat in her home at Delavan, 111., Saturday. She gave ber "impressions" over a radio phone to police, who followed herSi-rections. Taylor said the area along Walnut Creek, north of Hickman Road and Northwest 128th Street, was a flood plain. He said it had been under waiter several times since Gosch disappeared Sept. 5, 1982, while delivering the Des Moines Sunday Register near his home. "If anyone was buried in a shallow grave" as Alexander contended Gosch had been in the area, "he remains likely would have been washed away some time ago," Taylor said. He said a bone was found near the site but it proved to be an animal's bone. Taylor said there were no plans to return. The search had been the Gosch family.
