ALBUQUERQUE JOURNAL Friday, December 30, 1977 A-9 Highway Feud Gets Comment By Ferguson By JIM LARGO Lt. Gov. Robert E. Ferguson, a candidate for the 1978 Democratic gubernatorial nomination, said Thursday he would have handled the state highway department controversy differently than Gov. Jerry Apodaca. Ferguson commented on the highway feud during a press conference called to announce his net worth. Admitting that he was not consulted by any of the principals in the highway controversy, Ferguson said he would have created an investigative committee to research the department, weigh suggestions from citizens and make recommendations. The feud has involved Apodaca and his disagreements with a majority of commission members and Chief Engineer James Bird. If Ferguson had been governor, "We would have gotten a solution," be said. With regard to finances. Ferguson revealed that his net worth is $618,480, with total assets of $890,456 and liabil-' ities of $271,976. Making such a full disclosure "is not easy,"1 Ferguson said, and he challenged other gubernatorial candidates to disclose their finances. '" ; .. , ;..' He explained that his primary income is from his insurance and real -estate operations in his home town of Artesia. and in Albuquarque and Santa Fe. A "balance sheet'' released by him showed that nearly half his assets are tied up in the insurance offices. State Man Loses Bid To Move Site of Trial AMARILLO, Texas (UPI) - District Judge George E.

Mary Poole, director of development for Presbyterian, of which Kaseman is an affiliate, said that a computerized system has already been installed to track medical records. She also said Presbyterian will ask for a waiver of certain of the building regulatioms "because the costs of implementing everything (recommended in the commission's report) would be very high." The two hospitals are iunong many nationwide that received the limited accreditation. Sixty per cent of the 2,750 hospitals surveyed by the commission staff this year received only the one-year approval. Mrs. Poole said Presbyterian and Kaseman were surveyed in July and the commission's report and the accreditation were issued in September. ... The two facilities will probably be surveyed again in;' July 1978, she said. Concerning the medical records, Mrs. Poole said that at i the time of the survey, the hospital "had more records i that were not completed within a specified time than they (the commission) recommended." " However, since the survey, she said a computerized t system has been installed that flags unfinished records so that they can be completed. Since installation of the sys-J tern, Mrs. Poole said, "The number (of records that are) not up to date has really gone down dramatically." "j Airport Fogbound The Albuquerque International Airport, packed with holiday travelers, was closed for about five hours early Thursday because of a rare occurrence fog.

Sharrer said the takeoff ban started at about 7 a.m. and that by 11 a.m. a few planes were taking off. By 12:10 the problem was over. "It's unfortunate this had to happen this time of year, during the holidays," Sharrer said. A weather bureau spokesman said no fog problem was expected this morning.

By GEORGE JOHNSON Chilili residents, who complained they can't buy fire insurance because their town in Bernalillo County's hinterlands is foo far from a fire station, talked with county officials Wednesday night about setting up their own fire house.- "These people are really , great," Jim E. Bennett, chief " of fire and rescue for Ber-f nallillo County said. "They'' said I was the first fire mar-, shall ever to come to Chilil-i." The town, on south NM-14 in the Manzano Mountains is now an outpost of Fire Dist. U,whichisl0tol2miles away, Bennett said. "The Chilili residents want to help us set up their own substation," Bennett said. "They asked that we meet with them, so I went up there with my assistant, (former sheriff) Tom Richardson, and Frankie Chav ez, administrative assistant for the county. "They said Richardson was the first sheriff to come to Chilili," Bennett said . . , I think it's time we stopped ignoring them they're part of the county too." Bennett said the residents' 6f f er to lease ' five acres from Chilili's communal to the county grant land for a station would be presented to the county commission, r "They've even offered to let use a building up there for one year to get a station started," Bennett said. He said that if a station is approved, Chilili residents will be trained as volunteer firefighters and rescuers. "Fire Dist. 11 does a fine job taking care of the area, but it's just too far away," Bennett said. "Like Wednesday night when we were up there there was snow on the road. If there had been a fire it would have caused a delay." CATALOG SHOWROOMS You get it right every time. EAR PIERCING $199 THK CLASSIC STt U 24k (M ovrr surgirtl gride sWinlrs.
