Jury decision near BILLINGS (AP) - The Robert Close murder trial is expected to go to the Jury sometime today. Closing arguments were scheduled for this morning in a case that has Close accused of participating witii his uncle, David Close, in robbing and killing William Hill, a carnival promoter from Oklahoma. Hill was killed July 9, 1974. David Close also is charged with Hill's murder but is to stand trial later. Earlier this week, two relatives of the defendant testified Close told them several days after the slaying that he and his uncle robbed and killed Hill. Hill reportedly had more than $800 in cash. Prosecutor resigns FORSYTH (AP) - The special prosecutor for the Rosebud County grand jury has resigned because of what he termed a "gossipmonger" on the county's board of commissioners. James Sinclair, a Billings lawyer called in to assisst the grand jury investigation, referred to Commissioner A.W. Kamhoot's comments alleging that Sinclair had underworld connections and was privy to a group seeking to "frame" an unnamed person. Sinclair, whose resignation was submitted on May 26, said this week that he assumed the unnamed person was Rosebud County Atty. John Forsythe. Forsythe has been indicted by the grand jury on a charge of official misconduct and suspended from office pending determination of his case. Through his attorney, Forsythe recently asked District Court Judge Alfred Coate to postpone entering a plea to the charge until the grand jury has completed its investigation. Injunction dissolved BUTTE (AP) - Federal District Court Judge Russell Smith of Missoula cm Wednesday dissolved an injunction that had prevented the federal government from proceeding with funding and construction of the Lone Mountain access road to Big Sky of Montana. The injunction was granted by District Court Judge W,D. Murray of Butte Dec. 11, 1872. The order stemmed from a case brought by the National Forest Preservation Group, Montana Wilderness Association and Lester C. Baldwin against John Volpe, secretary of transportation, and F. C. Turner, federal highway administrator. The order was issued at a time when Big Sky was not a town and no permanent residences were at the end of the nine-mile road, Smith said in his ruling at Butte. Sufficient changes have occurred since the injunction was granted and reason for it no longer exists, he said in the five-page motion. There are 465 permanent residents along the road, plus a ski area, golf course, tennis courts, hotels, hostels, condominiums, restaurants and other businesses, he noted. Lone Mountain Road now is a connecting road, he ruled. It appears destined to become a spur of U.S. 191. When the road is designated part of the federal aid system, the government may proceed with funding and construction. National Environmental Policy Act requirements must be met, he said. Money to be found HELENA (AP) -- Gov. Thomas L. Judge announced Wednesday that if private donations are not sufficient to buy the Charles M. Russell painting "When the Land Belonged to God" then he will ask the next legislature to provide the money to keep the art work in Montana. The Montana Club, a private facility, is trying to sell the painting to the highest bidder to raise about $400,000 as assist in renovating its facilities. The club has been criticized for efforts that could result in the painting, considered one of Russell's best, being sold to an out-of-state customer. The club voted Tuesday night to give the Montana Historical Society 30 days to match the highest bidder from any other source for the painting. It turned down the society's first offer of 1250,000. Group to tackle vandalism . Last weekend's rash of incidents of vandalism has prompted the formation of a citizen's group seeking to halt such acts by offering rewards. "We now are offering a $250 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those persons responsible for the vandalism which occurred on the city's east side late Friday and early Saturday," G George Ostrom said. Ostrom is spokesman for a group calling itself Citizens Against Vandalism (CAV). "We had $2,000 to $3,000 worth of vandalism this last week and we want it brought to a halt," he said But while CAV is offering $250 reward because of the recent acts of vandalism, Ostrom said the group is making a starding $100 reward offer for information leading to the arrest and conviction of persons responsible for any act of vandalism where damage exceeds $100. In addition, a $25 reward also is being offered when damage is less than $100, Ostrom said. Numerous donations already have been made to CAV, he said, but the group is soliciting funds to offer FOCUS 1776 Through Jefferson's Eyes Thomas Jefferson once wrote that he longed for a society "where we love and are loved by every object we see."

Inf. 1976 25 former House members missing on general ballot HELENA (AP) - Montana's House of Representatives lost half a dozen members in primary-election contests, in addition to 19 representatives who did not seek re-election. Eliminated at the polls from serving in the 1977 session were five Democrats and one Republican, They were Reps. Gail M. Stoltz, D-Valier; James A. Sloan, D-Kalispell; Joseph M. Magone, D-Superior Duane P. McFadden, D-Great Falls; R.F. "Bob" Kelly, D-Butte; and John H. Anderson Jr., R-Alder. Voters rejected two of six women who ran for party nominations to the Senate and 10 of 32 women candidates for the House, including Miss Stoltz. Of the 50 Senate seats in the upcoming 45lh Montana Legislature, Democrats can count on at least 17 and Republicans are certain of at least 12. This is because 15 of the holdover senators are Democrats while 10 are Republicans. In addition, two Butte Democrats -- Sen. Robert E. Lee ami Bob Peterson -- are assured of re-election to the Senate because they have no Republican opponents to meet in November. And, for lack of Democratic foes, Sens. William L Mathers, R-Miles City, and Frank W. Hazelbaker, R- Dillon, also are considered elected. On the House side, Democrats are assured of at least 17 seats for tack of GOP epponents, while Republicans can count on at least eight seats because of Democratic defaults. Considered elected for want of opposition are: Democratic Reps. Glenn E. Jacobsen, Reserve; Francis Bardanouve, Harlem; Fred Fishbaugh, Carter; George R. Johnston, Cut Bank; Russell Baeth, Martin City; William R. Baeth and Arthur H.

' 'As these acts get more numerous that causes a hike in insurance rates because the insurance companies rate given areas," he said. Vandalism is going on constantly and increasing he said, and added that the formation of CAV is a citizen's effort to curb those acts. "We are not a vigilante group. We just want people to help each other and the police," Ostrom said. Persons with information regarding any act of vandalism should call the proper authorities with payment of the reward to be nvide on the say so of the police and prosecuting attorney, he said. Ostrom said in addition to offering rewards, CAV will be providing advice on prosecution and recovering damages as a result of vandalism and added that parents completely are responsible for acts committed by their minor children. Two counties to consolidate governments HELENA 'CAP) -- The nay vote won over the yea vote by a 3-to-l margin on local-government reorganization in Montana's primary election, but not without setting a precedent: the first consolidated government in state history. While voters opted for no change in all but four of 16 city-county government-reorganization elections, the residents of Anaconda-Deer Lodge County approved a unification charter containing the commission- manager form and non-partisan elections by a significant 57 per cent majority. Jack Haffey, chairman of the joint study commission which proposed the charter, said he thought people were well educated on the issue. "Citizens understood the form they voted for and were willing to take responsibility for making the new form of government work," he said. Voters approved local-government study commission proposals in Clyde Park and apparently also in Glasgow. The Glasgow commission-executive self- government proposal was ahead by one vote in the unofficial count with a second canvass scheduled Monday. Voters in Clyde Park approved the commission- executive form with an additional council member, two-year terms of office and at-large elections. The Helena self-government charter proposal was approved 3,331-2,891. The sub-otpion on the election of community councils also passed by a 2-to-l margin. The affirmative Helena vote, however, was not strong enough to offset rural-suburban reluctance to accept the commission-manager charter proposal of the Lewis and Clark County study commission and it went down by about 500 votes. The unification proposal in the city and county of Missoula went down 10,585-8,831. Voter-review proposals in Richland County and Blaine County were defeated by wide margins.
