Friends plan search for missing man NORTHWEST HERALD Wednesday, August 17, 1988 Page 3 By Donna puncan . Herald staff writer McHENRY COUNTY -While the massive search for an Arlington Heights sportswriter was called off last Sunday, area friends are not giving up. , They are planning to search the rugged terrain themselves. Keith Reinhard, 49, of 1155 Cary Road, in unincorporated Algonquin, has been missing since last Sunday when he failed to return from an afternoon hike. He is believed to have attempted to climb the 12,275-foot Pendleton Mountain in Silver Plume, Colo., about 45 miles west iof Denver. Sven, Reinhard's 26-year-old son, said his father's friends have not given up hope and are banding together to conduct their own search. ' ' ; " However, he said Tuesday, he has no further details about the group'8 search and would "know more Wednesday. Though the Alpine Rescue Squad and Clear Creek County Sheriffs Department ended their week-long search, Sven said he has "renewed optimism" his father is still alive. "If he died, the (search) dogs would have found him," he said. Sven speculates that his father may noi be on the mountain because he is not a camper. "He would never have any intentiono camp up on the mountain." "One thing searchers indicated is that a moving person leaves 80 clues an hour," Sven said, referring to the possibility his father is hurt and unable to move or is not on the mountain. The search ended last Sunday, after 23 teams of rescuers failed to find any clue to the missing man. Search efforts expanded just before last weekend, as 70 new rescuers from several neighboring states relieved 80 fatigued local ' rescuers,, who have been combing the rugged mountain terrain for almost a week. v The ordeal took a tragic turn last Friday when a Civil Air Patrol single-engine airplane in- volved in the search crashed, killing Terry Leadens, of Franktown, Colo. One passenger, Donald Drobney, 41, was seriously injured. v Clear, Creek County Sheriff Bob Cahill attended the funeral for Leadens Tuesday and was unable to be reached for comment. However, Peggy Kirkman, the sheriffs secretary, said officers will investigate the case only if new evidence is discovered. A wrap-up of the week-long search resulted ifl- 7,242 man hours and $65,178 in comparable salaries, according to the sheriffs department. In addition, the search cost $7,250 per hour for two Army Chinook helicopters. The Daily Herald, Reinhard's newspaper, set up a search fund to help defray the cost for the search and to contribute money for the family of the dead pilot, according to Bob Frisk, sports .editor. '...' Contributions may be sent to: The Keith Reinhard Search Fund, Account No. 002-004802 co NBD Arlington Heights Bank, P.O. Box 1848, Arlington Heights, 111. 60004. Kirkman reported the Civil Air Patrol of Denver is also collecting donations for the Civil Ajr Patrol pilot. Foul play was not suspected in connection with Reinhard's disappearance, according to Hunter Holloway, a rescue coordinator. : Holloway described the mountain Reinhard was said to. have attempted to ' climb as both as "beautiful" and "dangerous." It is covered with boulders, rocks and 50-foot drops hidden by thick forests. t Just south of Rocky Mountain National Park, the area is streaked with snow-covered areas. However, the weather can change instantly with a cold front or thunderstorm. Night tempera-" tures can dip to a low of 40 degrees, Holloway added. . He said it was partly cloudy and 75 degrees, withA occasional showers in the area the day Reinhard left. Navy holds memorial for crash victims United Press International ORLANDO, Fla. - Saddened sailors, officers and recruits overflowed the chapel Tuesday at the Naval Training Center Orlando for prayers and a memorial to four young Navy women killed in a collision with a pickup truck. Melissa Cherry, 21, of Lisbon Falls, Maine; Laura Emrich, 18, of Alonquin, 111.; Dawn Rhoden, 20, of Fritch, Texas; and Kristene Tackebury, 21, of Eire, Colo., died stantly Saturday in the crash east of Orlando on their way from a weekend at Cocoa Beach. Lt. Cmdr. Harold Wright, director of the electronic technicians school in which the girls were classmates, likened them in his eulogy to the rains God created to "wash away the anxieties and struggles of everyday life." "And like the wind God created, these four young women's lives blew across ours," he said. "They were the breeze blowing across the smoke and dust of life, leaving us with a fresh breath of air that was both satisfying and refreshing. "The wind of their lives touched us all." Tearful classmates prayed and sang hymns in the traditional service that ended with the playing of Taps at the 900-seat chapel. Both Cherry and Emrich had fathers retired from the Navy. Rhoden graduated the day before the accident and would have received orders for her next assignment this week. The other three were to graduate next, month from the recruit school all women who join the Navy attend. It was the first time in memory so many, training center personnel had been killed at the same time. None of the women's families were at the service and by late afternoon all four bodies had been transported to the family hometowns for burial, with a training center escort. Susan Ann Barber, 23, of Orlando, the driver of the pickup who lost control after the truck blew a tire and struck the worn- Rail talks begin again By Amy R. Mack Herald staff writer Railroad and union officials sat at the bargaining table Tuesday, attempting to hammer out an agreement in their long-standing dispute for the first time since a rail strike was averted by Congressional intervention. Whether the closed-door talks will resolve the conflict which nearly stranded 40,000 raU commutejs earlier this month remains to be seen. The Chicago & North Western Railroad and United Transportation Union are currently in the midst oL,& second "cooling-off" period initiated by Illinois Sen. Paul Simon and mandated by .Congress. The first federally-mandated ;OoI-off ended with strikers hitting the picket lines Aug. 4 and railroad management prepared to run the freight line .themselves. Because of the potential impact a strike would have on commuters, however, Simon and other Congressional leaders intervened. Facing a Sept. 9 deadline, both sides agreed to negotiate once again Tuesday, debating primarily the size of freight train crews. roup pushes for river testis By Amy R. Mack Herald staff writer McHENRY COUNTY - Getting the river tested may be an upstream battle, but the Friends of the Fox are not hesitating to wade right in and they are hoping otherp with heftier wallets will hop aboard. The recently organized citizens group will soon ask the McHenry County Board to help generate and finance Tegular water quality testing on the Fox River, Meanwhile health and environmental officials are continuing to debate the necessity and benefits of regular testing. With health officials warning swimmers, to stay out of the river because of high bacteria counts, the Friends of the Fox feel t,here is no room for debate; they just want action. "They've got to start pinpoin- ing where the problems are," organizer Deborah Naughton said Monday following a meeting between the Friends and health officials. "They say it would cost $5,500 or so to test the river once a week for an entire boating season," said co-organizer Bettye Anderson. "To me that's a spit in the bucket." a Representatives from the Illinois, McHenry and Lake County Health Departments, the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency, and; the Friends of the Fox met Monday to discuss the possi- N - tjx pip' BEEF PRICES ARE RISING!!

"I think everyone is talking and listening to the concerns," said Patrick MNulty, McHenry County environmental health director. "It's good to get them out on the table." Whether or not the meetings will lead to regular river testing during the boating season remains to be seen, both sides agree. Random tests conducted by this newspaper two weeks ago revealed highly variable water quality which would be unsafe for swimming. Random McHenry County Health Department tests last week the first since 1984 showed even higher bacteria counts. Since the health department tests may have been affected by a recent rain, the health department has retested the same sites, McNulty said. Correction A Northwest Herald news story Tuesday incorrectly stated that Kathy Romero, 32, 1925 Cary Road, Algonquin, pleaded guilty to possession of a controlled substance. Actually, Romero stipulated to the facts in the case and 19th Judicial Circuit Cojirt Judge Roland A. Herrmann found her guilty. The Herald regrets the error.
