Hcno Evening Gazette Friday, September 3, 1982 11 1 3 seek Lander commission seat; 5 vie for sheriff's post By JOAN STROJNY BATTLE MOUNTAIN - Republican candidates for the Lander County Commission District 2 seat want to reduce unemployment and run the commission meetings "by the book." Broy Harding, an employee of the Duval Corp. gold mine, said he wants to make the commission meetings go by the book without violating state laws. David Lindsay, owner of the D.B. Trucking Co. in Battle Mountain and president of the Battle Mountain Chamber of Commerce, sees unemployment as the area's major problem. He said he would try to get the county commissioners to work with other community organizations like the chamber to attract more businesses to the county. The winner of that primary will face Democrat Edwin Ruth, an employee of Imco Services, one of Battle Mountain's barite mining concerns, in the Nov. 2 general election. Incumbent David Layton chose not to seek a second term. Racing for the sheriff's slot are Democrats Curtis Watson and Harry Yenor and Republicans Bruce Dohms, Ray McClelland and incumbent Tom Beebe. Independent candidate Allan "Jersey" Turner will advance to the Nov. 2 ballot along with the winners of the Republican and Democratic primaries. Watson, a Duval Corp. security officer, claims the present sheriff's department has an image and morale problem. "The department no longer operates on a professional basis," he said. "It requires budget control and improved training programs." Yenor, manager of Royal Ace Hardware store, wants to restructure the sheriff's office. "I want to work on the budget, have better disper-sement of personnel, better records and equipment," he said. Dohms, an Imco Services miner, said, "I want equality. Everybody should be treated the same. A lot of people are neglected under the present administration." A retired fuel inspector, McClelland wants to follow the code of ethics and add qualified officer to the force. McClelland works part time at J and C Auto supply store. Beebe previously held an elected office, constable. "I want to continue to maintain law and order, the peace of the county," said the sheriff. "I like to carry out my duties professionally and in an unbiased manner. I strive tor impartiality and insist on fairness and justice for everybody by the deputies." County clerk candidates say they want to work within the budget and strive for efficiency. Karen Frazier and Geraldine Gerhart are challenging incumbent County Clerk Carolyn Mering for the Republican nomination. Frazier, an employee of the Sage Gift Shop promises to "promote cooperation in the office. The public image of the office needs improvement. I would make it efficient and organized." Gerhart worked in the county clerk's office for "a few months." She is currently unemployed. "That office has to stay within the budget," she said. "I would be clerk for all the county and run the office more efficiently and cost consciously." Mering, appointed last year, said, "If elected, I will continue to work to find ways to more efficiently serve the people and save the taxpayers money." Democratic clerk candidate Judy Negro said, "The county clerk's office should work toward the betterment of Lander County in a professional manner and be accountable to the public for a balanced budget." She works for Duval mines. Idonna Trevino, also a Democratic clerk contender, wants to "establish file integrity of records and maintain control of the files." "The integrity of the files was lost in the transition of government from Austin to Battle Mountain and must be re-established," she said. Trevino is purchasing clerk for Imco. Raye Fagg and Estelle Saralegui are contending for county recorder-auditor on the Democratic ticket. The winner will meet Republican Pat Campbell in the Nov. 2 general election. Fagg, clerk of Argenta Justice Court, said she sees a need for better rapport and smoother transactions between the office of recorder-auditor and all other county offices. Saralegui has held the office for eight years. She vowed to continue the efficient operation of the office. Three candidates are running for Argenta justice of the peace in Battle Mountain. The nonpartisan candidates are Theodore Gandolfo, incumbent, undersheriff Duane Amberson and Ivan Broadway, a welder for Silver State Trucking Co. The Austin Justice of the Peace race also has three contenders incumbent Frank Bertrand; Andrew Kaltenbach, owner and operator of the Frontier Tav ern; and Ray Williams, a retired U.S. Air Force officer, manager of the Golden Club and operator with his brother of a backhoe service. Primary candidates for school board District 3 are Gary Dodson, mine superintendent at Duval; Cynthia Ruth, housewife and Laura Wooten, homemaker. Four of the eight other district candidates will be selected in the general election. Other district school board candidates include: Fred Beeman, manager of exploration for Imco; Howard Hill, vice president of Hill Corporation (Lander Station) ; Mark Lake, Midway Grocery employee and owner of a stereo concession in Midway; David Ramsdell, incumbent school board member and manager of Shell Station; Penny Fagg, secretary for Stone and Webster Construction Co. at Valmy; Ronald Hinton, Dresser Industries employee; and George "Rick" Wagner, warehouseman at Duval. Debbie Evans, former incumbent, is on the ballot. After filing for another term she accepted a position as an English teacher for the school district. Superintendent of Schools Leon Hensley has asked the state attorney general to determine if a teacher could also serve on the school board. Evans resigned her post on the school board until the attorney general responds. If she can't be on the school board, her name will remain on the ballot anyway. "If the opinion is that I may not serve on the board and I'm elected anyway, I'll resign," she said. In the event of a negative opinion from the attorney general, Evans may be the only candidate campaigning to lose. , Tri-County Fair Eureka sheriff faces 2 primary challengers teaxures roaeo WINNEMUCCA Nevada's oldest continuous rodeo, a Mexican rodeo, street dances and car races, will be part of the Tri-County Fair, opening at 10 a.m. Saturday at the Humboldt County Fairgrounds in Winnemucca.

Churchill primary involves only sheriff, recorder races FALLON The Democratic nomination for sheriff and the Republican contest for recorder-auditor are the only county offices on the ballot in the Sept. 14 primary in Churchill County. Veteran Sheriff Dave Banovich is facing E.F. "Tex" Hood. The winner will face Republican Art Lohr in Nov. 2 general election. Banovich, a veteran of nearly 40 years in law enforcement, is seeking his third term. Before his election in 1974, he was a Nevada Highway patrol sergeant for 32 years. Before that, he served as Tono-pah Fire chief and deputy sheriff in Nye and Esmeralda counties. Hood tried unsuccessfully to start a grand jury investigation of Mineral County government before moving from Hawthorne to Fallon early this year. The Mineral County sheriff's department came in for Hood's criticism in particular. He charged that it was possibly corrupt and had a morale problem, but his petitions for a grand jury were disqualified two times in a row for legal defects by District Court Judge William P. Beko. Hood originally filed for Churchill County Sheriff in April, withdrew from the race May 5 only to file again for the same office, paying a second $40 filing fee, the next day. Hood said his wife, Ruby, had wanted to move to Illinois at the time, but changed her mind. They have since separated. Hood said he has six years experience as a security guard at an E.I. Dupont plant in Indiana and a construction firm in Kentucky. He said he plans to beef up patrols of rural areas where ranchers have been losing stock and dogs to highway kills. He vowed to accompany deputies on patrols on all shifts to get a feeling for the problems they have. Banovich called Hood's claim that cattle were being killed "hogwash" and added, "We patrol the outlying areas routinely, day and night. "I feel very good about the department, for its size," he said of his 15-member force. The Republican primary ballot will be just as sparse in local races as the Democratic one. Incumbent Recorder-Auditor Eva B. Whitaker and former recorder clerk Shirley Collins are vying for a chance to meet Delores Stennett, a Democrat, and another former deputy clerk, Nov. 2. Mrs. Whitaker was appointed to the position last year after Steve Erquiaga resigned to take a position with the Churchill Public Hospital. Although there are three candidates for district attorney, two independents Don Lattin and Catherine Hansen, advance directly to the general election to face Deputy District Attorney William Cooper, a Republican. Incumbent John Hill decided not to seek a second term.

Sahara dealers short of strike-sanction votes LAS VEGAS Teamsters Local 14 President Robert Dambro said Thursday a majority of the Teamsters employed at the casino at the Sahara Hotel on the Las Vegas "strip" favor a strike, but the total falls short of the two-thirds requirement to seek a sanctioned walkout. Dambro told a news conference that Monday's strike vote showed 83 dealers favor a work stoppage, while 74 opposed a walkout. "It shows a majority of the dealers at the establishment are unhappy," said Dambro. The union official said the Teamsters would hold another strike vote if the dealers request one. Dambro said if two-thirds of the members who cast ballots in Monday's election had requested a strike, he would Union Carbide plans Pine Creek layoffs BISHOP Union Carbide Corp.'s Pine Creek operators confirmed this week that another 20 employees will be laid off Sept. 15. That will bring to 260 the number laid off at the tungsten operation, including the April mill closing and the August mine closure. Manager M. E.

After Sept. 15, about 100 employees will still be on the payroll for special projects and maintenance have sought a sanctioned walkout from the labor council and the international union. Such a sanction would permit other unions to honor a picket line without violating their own union contracts. Dambro sent a telegram to new Sahara owner Paul Lowden Friday, giving the resort until Sept. 6 to sit down and begin negotiating a contract. If the Sahara does not come to the bargaining table, he said the union would file a complaint with the National Labor Relations Board. Lowden, who purchased the resort last month from the Del Webb Corp., said Wednesday the hotel would negotiate with the union if a majority of the casino dealers want to be represented by the Teamsters at the end of a 90-day period from the date of purchase.
