Teamsters back Plaid Pantry strikers Statsman-Journal, Salem, Ore., Tuesday, September 2, 1986, 3B PORTLAND (AIM T.mut diiy to honor picket lines at 1'luid Pantry convenience Btores, where some clerks are seeking higher wages and other benefits. The show of support came as striking clerks established picket lines at four new Btores on Labor Day. Local 555 of the United Food and Commercials Workers is trying to obtain a contract for about 700 part-time clerks at 140 Pluid Pantry stores in Oregon and southwestern Washington. However, only about 200 of the clerks are tak ing purt in the walkout, according to Rosemary Reynolds, union spokeswoman. She said pickets were up Monday at 28 stores as union officials prepared for a long walkout. No negotiations have been scheduled. Reynolds said union officials estimate that customer counts at the stores being picketed are down 85 percent, But John Piacentini, owner of the stores, said his company's business was not being adversely affected. Reynolds said the clerks want a two-year con tract that includes lunch hours, Ineaks and medical benefits. "A lot of (the workers) are working 30 hours a week or better and aren't getting any benefits," she said, The workers also want a $1 increase in wages to $4.50 an hour, and an increase to $5 an hour in the second year of the contract. Reynolds said Piacentini's last offer was for no increase in benefits and a three-year wage freeze. The union also wants two clerks working in each store, for security reasons. AP photo Seeds grown by Ed Ammon, of Albany, will go into wildflower mix for Willamette Valley Seed and Grain. Profits blossom in the wild PORTLAND (AP) - Production of wildflower seeds has blossomed into a full-scale industry in the Willamette Valley. Between 1,500 and 2,000 acres of flowers in Oregon, 95 percent of the;n wildflowers, are cultivated for seed, according to Blaise Boyle, production manager for Daehnfeldt Inc. in Albany. Fields under contract for bachelor buttons, corn poppies, baby blue eyes and several dozen other wildflowers are brushstrokes of color on landscapes around Dever, Crabtree, Mount Angel and Silverton. Some flowers also are grown for seed around Medford, in Central Oregon and near Nyssa on the Oregon-Idaho border. The risks are high, but so are the rewards. Growers contract with the half-dozen seed companies in the valley who have bought wildflower seed for about three years. On the average a grower can expect to gross between $1,000 and $1,200 per acre.

HEARING AID SERVICE Lancaster Mall Salem 581-6177 Guru's armored Rolls brings $120,000 price AUBURN, Ind. (AP) - An armor-plated Rolls-Royce limousine that once carried Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh outside the safety of his Oregon commune sold at auction Monday for $120,000. The 1979 Silver Wraith II was one of 17 Rolls-Royces, many still bearing Oregon license plates, once owned by Rajneesh and sold at the annual auction of the Auburn-Cord-Duesenberg Festival. Prices ranged from $57,000 for a 1982 Silver Spur to a conventional 1985 Silver Spur limousine knocked down at $155,000. Rajneesh spent $1 million outfitting the Silver Wraith limousine to James Bond specifications, including gun ports, bulletproof windows, tear gas canisters mounted beneath the fenders, and a remote ignition with a bomb detector, auctioneer Dean V. Kruse said. Herbert Livingston, a South Carolina fireworks importer and car collector, bought the richly painted, two-tone green over ivory, lace-patterned car after two minutes of fast bidding. "It's going in Herbie's Antique Car Museum" in Charleston, he said. Livingston said he might lease the limousine to anyone, including the president and the military, who needed a high-security car. Many of the RollB-Royces offered at the auction sported similarly intricate custom finishes patterned after Rajneesh's visions of the sea and sky and the Japanese kimonos he favored. The finish alone on one model was appraised at $37,000. The guru's collection of 85 Rolls-Royces was purchased for $6.2 million last November by Dallas entrepreneur Robert Lee Roethlisberger after the Rajneeshpuram commune was dissolved. A Texas probate court directed the sale of the cars after Roethlisberger died April 20 of a brain tumor. During the three days of the auction, scores of other classic cars, including Bentleys, Mercedes-Benzes, Jaguars, and American models such as Auburns, Packards and 1957 Chevrolets were sold. A brightly colored 1956 Bentley once owned by former Beatle John Lennon sold for $79,000 to a Worcester, Mass., man, Leo Du-trem, who said he owns a chain of suntan shops. A 1928 Packard rumble seat roadster once owned by Clark Gable went for $67,000 to Blackhawk Col-, lections of San Francisco.
