METRO PLUS TUESDAY APRIL 13, 1993 TV ShoW To Feature 1988 Disappearance CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 eluding us, wants to know what happened to Tara ," Ortega . said. "We're still putting pieces of the puzzle together. I think Tara's family knows that we haven't shut the door on this case." Patty Doel in a telephone interview Monday evening said she took the show's film crew to the site of the disappearance, on NM 47 about four miles south of Rio Communities. "It was really difficult because I hadn't been out there for quite some time," she said. "Just after it happened, I used to go out there and walk it every day. When I went out there today, it was like it happened just yesterday. It brought it all back." Calico was a 19-year-old sophomore at the University of New Mexico Valencia Campus when she disappeared on Sept. 20, 1988. Tara's pink Huffy 10-speed bicycle was never recovered, but sheriff's officers did find a cassette tape belonging to her about 100 yards off NM 47. Bike tracks that could have come from her bicycle were found, along with vehicle tire tracks and an oil slick. Footprints led to what might have been the site of a scuffle, where the tape was found, police said at the time. In July 1989, Patty Doel appeared on the television show, "A Current Affair," after the show aired a mysterious Polaroid snapshot of a young woman and boy shown bound and gagged. Doel identified the young woman as her daughter. The photo was found in a Florida supermarket parking lot and was believed to have fallen out of a white van, police said. The boy in the photograph was believed to be Michael Henley Jr. of Grants who was missing since April 1988. However, police in June 1990 found Henley's body in the Zuni Mountains near Grants, where he had died apparently of exposure while on a hunting trip. A number of reported sightings of women matching Calico's description have been called in to investigators, but none have led to her, police have said. The family has offered rewards and has mass distributed flyers and information to police departments across the country, but none has resulted in Calico's recovery. Doel said a police chief in Missouri contacted "America's Most Wanted" to do a segment on the missing woman. Doel said she has r ' .... 1 ) -J t u' 3 i T ' f ' NEWS IN BRIEF Tara Calico Missing since September 1988 mixed feelings about the latest effort to generate leads. "In some respects, I'm hopeful it will produce more news where possibly we can go out and get her home," she said, adding that she's also afraid Tara's abductor may panic and decide to dispose of her. Doel said she and her husband recently bought a 1979 gold Porsche 928 because it was Tara's dream car. They plan to give it to her when she comes home, Doel said. "In my opinion, there's much more proof that she's alive than that she's dead," Doel said. Boy Injured in Drive-By Shooting LOS LUNAS Someone in a pickup truck fired five shotgun blasts through a window, injuring a 5-year-old Belen boy with shards of flying glass, Valencia County Sheriff Anthony Ortega said. Ortega on Monday said an investigation is continuing into last Wednesday's incident at the home of Debbie Lovato, of 1232 NM 116 in Belen. According to a report by Deputy P.L. Councilman, Lovato was standing in her kitchen eating dinner about 9 p.m. when she heard a vehicle pull up in front of her house and stop at the end of her driveway. Lovato told the officer she looked out her window and saw a white Chevrolet pickup with no bumper on the front and chrome gas covers. Suddenly, several shots were fired from the pickup, forcing her to dive to the floor, she told the officer. Lovato's son, Leo, was also in the kitchen and ran to the living room. While he was running, the boy was cut over the left eye from flying glass from the shotgun blasts, the report said. The boy's father, Leo Sr., ran from the living room and fell on the boy to protect him, the report said. Councilman said that when he arrived, he found five shotgun shells in the driveway. A county rescue crew treated the boy's cut at the scene. Bernalillo Council To Look at Law BERNALILLO The Town Council agreed Monday to look at revising its subdivision law because it is outdated. The law, in' place since 1978, does not specify what type of road improvements developers are responsible for, said Councilor Charles Aguilar. : : "Times have changed a lot" since 1978, he said. : The law will go before the town's Planning and Zoning Commission for review and possible recommendations for the council. In other business, the council agreed to spend about $30,000 to update its telephone system. The new phone system would allow people to dial direct to somebody's extension and to leave messages in a voice-mail system, said AT&T representative Berdel Bolanger. . The current phone system was installed in 1985. It's not known when the new system will be installed. City Officials Will Look Younger RIO RANCHO City officials are going to look younger Wednesday.

It would occupy about 85 acres on the site of the former Alameda Airport. Potential anchor stores include Dillard's, Mervyn's, J.C. Penney and Montgomery Ward. The infrastructure improvements by the assessment district made up of area property owners and the city are to take place concurrently with the mall's construction. Lunsford said once the project is taken off hold, a number of items will need attention; such as relocating the alignment of a high pressure gas line and getting construction easements. Projects will be advertised for bid after that. One of the improvement projects is a bypass road between NM 528 and Coors. The city already has put in a sewer line along part of the existing two-lane bypass. The mall formally was proposed in the mid-1980s. News stories about its progress over the years quoted Simon and Associates officials saying they anticipated ground breaking in 1990, with the mall to open in 1992. Seven Bar Ranch Sector Plan Ellison Rd. Cibola IV School Tsy Planned Mall CAROL COOPEHRIDER JOURNAL Subsequent reports in 1991 and afterward said ground breaking would be "soon." One 1987 story said West Side shoppers could look forward to a mall by 1990. sn a & gd b L?3GEG B W O Cf S7 SI (51 S7 IPFDCgO Don't wait for a sale to get professional help in the Kitchen f.t.
