U.S. District Judge Richard Bilby of Tucson last week blocked the state from accepting more juveniles until they reached that limit. At the time, the lockups housed 72 more youths than the limits allowed. In the interim, county juvenile judges have continued to sentence youngsters to the state institutions, but the kids have stayed in county detention facilities. Five boys were being held at the Pima County Jail annex last night after they were turned away from the overcrowded Arizona Department of Juvenile Corrections this week. On Thursday, Pima County Juvenile Court officials took the youths by van to the department's intake facility in Phoenix. The youngsters, ages 12 to 17, had committed crimes ranging from auto theft to drug possession. But the department refused to accept them, so the van brought them back to Tucson, juvenile court officials said yesterday. Juvenile court and Pima County Sheriffs Department officials worked out an arrangement to hold youths at the jail's annex next to the main jail. The five boys brought in this week bring the total number of youths housed at the annex to 34. Blood Continued from Page One drug companies and federal public health officials had enough information to suspect the possibility of blood and blood-product contamination at least two years before tests became available. Bayer AG, Baxter International Inc., Rhone-Poulenc Rorer Inc. and Alpha Therapeutics Inc. gave plaintiffs and their lawyers until May 20 to decide whether to accept the settlement offer. The settlement would provide 6,000 plaintiffs or their survivors with $100,000 each. Only 100 litigants will be allowed to opt out of the settlement, or the offer will be withdrawn. The settlement includes an additional $40 million for legal fees. "I think it's a springboard to further negotiations," said Tucson attorney Rose Marie Ibanez, who has filed more than 20 lawsuits on behalf of HIV-infected hemophiliacs in Pima, Maricopa, Cochise and Yuma counties. Up to 200 Arizonans could be eligible to take part in the settle FUNERAL NOTICES VALENZUELA, Eva B., 62, of Tucson, died April 16, 1996. She is survived by her husband, Francisco Valenzuela; daughters, Olga Elenes, Rosemary Valenzuela, Bonnie Ro-bles, Maryann Varela, Rachel Valenzuela and Irene Valencia; son, Steve Valenzuela; and son-in-laws, Victor Robles, David Valencia, Charlie Varela, Ben Flores and Eddie Davis. Also surviving are sisters, Rosa Martinez and Juanita Yanez; as well as 13 grandchildren. Visitation will begin on Sunday, April 21, 1996 at 4:00 p.m. at Santa Rosa Mission, 2015 N. Calle Central.

Survived by daughter, Gail Eiland (L.E. "Red "); and grandson, Lee Eiland. She was born July 5, 1908 in Cochise County, in the Territory of Arizona and raised on ranches in Cochise and Santa Cruz counties. She graduated from Bisbee High School, attended (JSC and graduated from the U of A with a MA in English. A career teacher, she taught at Amphi. Tucson and Catalina High Schools.

Michael O'Connor. Juveniles may be housed at the jail but must be separated "by sight and sound" from the adult inmates, O'Connor said. "It isn't the ideal situation, but it is a situation (the jail annex) can handle at this point," he said. "Basically, 15 more kids would be OK, but beyond that would be stressing" the jail annex, O'Connor said. While the youngsters await bed space at the Department of Juvenile Corrections, the state is picking up a $50-a-day tab for each inmate. Though Bilby's order bans the Juvenile Corrections Department from accepting more youths until it meets population caps, Judge Nanette Warner, who presides over Pima County Juvenile Court, said the five boys were sent to Phoenix to set a precedent. The department had never said it would refuse the youngsters, she said. "For us to continue to take responsibility for these kids, we had to have an outright refusal" from the department, Warner said. "When we go to the Board of Supervisors or the Sheriffs Department looking for help, now we can say, 'We went to the door and they turned us away and now we need your help,' " said juvenile court spokeswoman Gabriela Rico. ment, Ibanez said. She and Tucson attorney Joseph Esposito, who filed suit on behalf of two clients, said they have not decided how they will advise their clients. "Ultimately it's the client's decision to make," Ibanez said. Both attorneys said that $100,000 falls short of what some plaintiffs should be awarded. "It's a step forward from where they were," Esposito said. But. additional consideration should be given to the plaintiffs who have devoted more time and energy to the litigation process, he said. Ibanez filed a class-action lawsuit in Pima County Superior Court in April 1994. It is scheduled for a hearing before Judge Bernardo Velasco on May 29. The lawsuits and proposed settlement apply only to hemophiliacs who were infected through commercial blood products - not to surgical patients and others who were infected by transfusions of HIV-contaminated whole blood. The blood products in question are so-called clotting factors derived from whole blood. Hemo Legislature Continued from Page One fered. Killian eventually met with Sen. Keith Bee, R-Tucson, the bill's sponsor, and Buster last night behind closed doors, but no action had been taken on the bill by 11 p.m. Proponents said the fix is a long time coming. For more than a decade, Maricopa County has been getting a disproportionate share of the state's highway construction fund. The fund comes from gasoline taxes and vehicle license taxes, and is distributed to counties and cities based on population. The problem is that there are 280,000 people in the unincorporated areas of Pima County, compared with 170,000 people in the Handcrafted by our shop in Contemporary, Southwestern ana Traditional -: ' " X ! ill ill 'HOT t.4" "Give us one room, we'll give you two rooms. " SpeedwayWilmot in Monterey Village Showroom Hrs: fvion.-Sat. 9:30-5:30 6242 E Speedway - 745-1186 X '. . . 7 . philiacs lack these clotting factors and sometimes require transfusions of them to keep from bleeding to death. Although the first accurate test for HIV was not available until 1985, a surrogate test could have been used to protect more patients from being infected, Ibanez said yesterday. The surrogate test was one used to detect hepatitis-B infection, which was epidemic in gay men in the early 1980s: The illness that would later become known as AIDS was first reported in a small group of gay men in Los Angeles in 1981. By 1983, Ibanez said, public health officials had noted the high incidence of dual infection of HIV and hepatitis-B in many of the cases they were tracking. It would have been reasonable, Ibanez said, for manufacturers to screen blood products with the hepatitis-B test before distributing them to the public. Doctors and the drug companies themselves have disputed that line of reasoning, saying the hepatitis-B test can not be accurately used to predict infection with HIV. unincorporated areas of Maricopa County. But the current funding formula gives Pima $22 million a year for roads, and Maricopa more than $60 million. The bill changes the formula to phase in more money for Pima County, drawing on the general fund and the highway fund, starting with an extra $3.3 million next year. "This would be the single most important thing to emerge from this session," said Rep. George Cunningham, D-Tucson. "Is this big? How big is big? How huge is huge? The proceeds can be utilized to pay debt services on hundreds of millions of dollars of road construction." But Senate Appropriations Committee Chairwoman Carol Springer, R-Prescott, said the bill creates problems for future legislators, who will have the growing Pima County share to deal with. "The best way to deal with it would have been to use the available revenues in the (Highway User Revenue Fund), and not add any more dollars," she said. "That would have been the best way, but it's hot the politically correct way. The bill would cost the general fund $5.9 million this year, and would not decrease funding for any other county - although Pima would benefit the most. "Most of the roads north of III 7 I T w fl -. t ' Ml m ... - Hi fit HI But Department of Juvenile Corrections spokesman Steve Meissner characterized the ill-fated trip as "a publicity stunt, a headline grabber." The department has been in touch with the courts on a regular basis, so Warner should have known that the boys would not be admitted, he said. "Every day we issue a memo to all the courts, through the Supreme Court, that we cannot accept any more youths and what our population count is," Meissner said. J On Wednesday, the department did accept a 15-year-old Pima County girl because there were vacancies at the 60-bed girls' facility. . The lawsuit says detention in county facilities for youths who are sentenced to the Department of Juvenile Corrections is not only inappropriate but illegal. "If the juvenile court's order is not being followed, the child is illegally held in detention," said attorneys David Katz and Ellen Edge Katz, who are deputy public defenders: They contend that when the state agency fails to execute the court order, "the person regains his liberty rights." ' "h The lawyers said that one purpose of sentencing youths to the Department of Juvenile Corrections is to provide them with rehabilitation. Allowing them to be warehoused in county facilities without rehabilitative programs defeats the purpose of the sentencing, they said. . In 1985, when testing became available, drug companies also began treating, blood products with heat to kill the AIDS virus. "We didn't know, nobody knew" before then what the risk of HIV infection was to the public, said Margo Barnes, Bayer's senior vice president of communications. Barnes said the drug companies were not admitting to any liability with yesterday's settlement offer. "In Bayer's case, we have not yet lost a case that's gone to trial," she said. "But it's been a long, costly and painful process for everyone to continue to litt gate." And with at least 600 lawsuits pending nationally, "there's no way our court system can process all these cases and provide relief to the victims and then-families, Barnes said.

The 43-13 vote sends the bill to the governor. A measure to preserve 50,000 acres in and around metropolitan Tucson and Phoenix also won House approval, 45-11. : ' But House Bill 2555, the Am zona Preserve Initiative, was watered down considerably. As irf-troduced, it would have protected 700,000 acres statewide. The measure now goes to the governor. ' The House voted 48-8 to approve a measure providing $3 million for at-risk youth and gang prevention programs. Pima County would get about $900,000 of the money. House Bill 2559 awaits Symington's signature. " Senate Bill 1380, the so-called polluter protection bill, is by most accounts dead. The bill would have given criminal immunity and confidentiality to polluters who confess their environmental crimes to regulatory agencies and agree to clean them up. "Sometimes it takes a few (sessions) to get issues like this worked out," said Symington, who vetoed a similar bill last year but supported this year's version, "I still think to encourage compliance by using this mechanism is good public policy," he said. - PUBLIC RECORDS : DEATHS t (The deceased are from Tucson unless othar-wisa noted.
