Pago 2C LOCALOREGON Statesman Journal, Salem, Ore., Saturday, August 1, 1992 Court in Jackson County dismisses father's suit The judge rules that Oregon has full jurisdiction over the adopted child. The Associated Press MEDFORD A California man trying to gain custody of his son after his ex-girlfriend gave the infant up for adoption saw his lawsuit dismissed Friday in Jackson County Circuit Court. Judge L.A. Merryman ruled that Oregon has full jurisdiction over the child, and a California court order granting custody after the birth to Mark Hylland, 26, of Norwalk, Calif., had no force in this state. The child was born in Oregon and adoption proceedings were carried out here. The judge also found that Hylland had failed to produce sufficient evidence to show he helped support the child's birth mother, which would have been grounds for granting him parental rights. Hylland has shown off a check for $500 with the notation "child support," but opposing attorneys have repeatedly asked for supporting bank records. Merryman found there was no evidence to support Hylland's claims of fraud because the adoption forms listed the biological father as unknown. The rulings came on a motion to dismiss the case before it went to trial filed on behalf of the adoptive parents, whose names haven't been publicized. Hylland said he would appeal. A former truck dispatcher, Hylland was living with Janet K, Ohnemus, 25, until she was seven months pregnant. Claiming Hylland was abusive, Ohnemus went to Oregon last year, where she arranged through Open Adoptions and Family Services of Portland to place the child with a Jackson County family. The child turns 1 year old on Sunday and remains with the adoptive parents. Hylland has never seen him. Senate toughens drift-net ban The president is authorized to impose mandatory sanctions against violators. The Associated Press PORTLAND The U.S. Senate on Friday gave teeth to the United Nations ban on drift-net fishing, authorizing the president to impose mandatory sanctions against countries that violate it. "For too long, our seas and marine resources have been ravaged by foreign drift-net vessels," Sen. Slade Gorton, R-Wash., said. "Today's passage of this drift-net legislation is long overdue." The legislation requires that the president ban imports of fish, fish products and sport fishing equipment to the United States from any nation found using drift nets after the end of this year. If those sanctions don't work, the president can prohibit the import of any product from the offending country. "It seems quite unlikely to me that drift-netting nations would risk a ban on any of their valuable export products," Gorton said. Sen. Bob Packwood, R-Ore., a sponsor of the bill, said Congress wanted to be clear that drift-net fishing would not be tolerated. "It is estimated that about 21 million North American salmon and steelhead have been taken each year by Asian drift-net fleets in the North Pacific," Pack-wood said. "Drift-netting is sucking the blood out of the U.S. fishing industry and killing millions of marine mammals and salmon each year. It's got to stop." The United Nations in December adopted a ban on drift nets worldwide by Dec. 31, 1992. The resolution asked nations to take action individually and collectively to prevent drift-net fishing. The House and Senate have spent the past year working on legislative language to implement the mandatory sanctions. The bill will be returned to the House for final approval and then will go to President Bush.

Lulu Bell's blue ribbon shows all that she's a prizewinner By Tom Visoky The Statesman Journal McMINNVILLE Lulu Bell showed Friday that she had what it takes to be a prizewinner at the Yamhill County Fair. Lulu Bell, a 2-year-old Saanen goat, won a blue ribbon for her owner, Patrick Oleman, 13, of Dayton, in the dairy goat showmanship competition. The goat show was one of several animal-judging contests that culminated Friday with an auction of many of the prizewinners. All of the animals, though, will be on display again today when the fair ends its four-day run. And grand champion showmen for each breed will give a final exhibition at 6 p.m. Lulu Bell's blue ribbon performance Friday proved a point, Patrick's mother, Pam McClain, said. "We were told that she wasn't fair quality," McClain said. "So we decided to find out for ourselves." But getting Lulu into prizewinning shape took some work. "I got her from my uncle and she was kind of Yamhill County Fair continues today The Yamhill County Fair continues today from 10 a.m. to 1 1 p.m. with live music and entertainment, and produce, craft and animal displays.

The show begins at 7 p.m. in the rodeo arena. Cost is $8 for adults and $5 for children age 12 and younger. wild," Patrick said. "I had to tame her for a year." Lulu and Patrick, though, will have to polish their routine if they hope to be grand champions next year. "I have to work on controlling her head," Patrick said. "She's lovable, though; she kept trying to give me kisses in there." ALMANAC Grocery robbers called professionals Corrections Obituaries From staff and wire reports PORTLAND Two robbers responsible for the longest and most expensive string of robberies in Northwest history are cool professionals who probably lead outwardly normal lives, a police psychologist said Friday. "They're probably not appreciably different from the guy next door," said Richard Newman, a clinical psychologist for the past 20 years. Police said the two men had robbed 35 grocery stores in Oregon and Washington since 1987. The robbers have gotten away with $1.5 million, averaging $43,000 per robbery. Six Mid-Willamette Valley stores have been among their targets, police said, including a Thriftway store in Salem in April 1990. Others are in Woodburn, Newberg and McMinnville. FBI publicized the investigation this week in hopes of generating new leads. FBI spokesman Bart Gori said the agency had gotten several dozen phone calls and agents were following up. Nobody has been hurt in any of the robberies. The latest robbery occurred July 19 in Astoria. Errors in the Statesman Journal may be brought to the attention of the city desk at 399-6677.
