Then again, most people haven't had the bad luck of William "Bud" Post, whose life went downhill ever since he won the Pennsylvania Lottery in 1988. Now bankrupt, Post arranged on Sept. 26 for a federal judge to auction off what was left of his prize payments to Prosperity Partners of West Palm Beach, Fla., for $2.65 million. The money was supposed to pay off Post's debts and leave him with $500,000 to $1 million. But Monday, the company tried to set up a press conference to announce it was backing out of the sale. Post refused to attend. "You know Murphy's law? If anything bad can happen, it will happen? That's me," Post said. "We keep this up and we'll be in the lottery business forever." Post said the prize will now go to the next-highest bidder, Singer Asset Finance Co., which bid $2.64 million. Dog kennel wins county approval But owners are given 11 conditions to meet in order to keep permit By CHRIS KOGER The Salina Journal Seven months after denying a conditional use permit for a dog kennel in northeast Saline County, the Saline County Planning Commission approved the permit, but only if the owners comply with an extensive list of demands. Bobby and Bonnie George, 532 E. Shipton, had to move their their kennel from its present location on their property because it isn't zoned properly. But the location they picked on 80 acres on North Holmes Road north of East Riordan Road, has met with strong opposition from residents in the area. The commissioners voted to approve the conditional use permit 4-1, with Commissioner Ed Aylward voting against it. In his motion in favor of the permit, Commissioner George Currie listed 11 conditions the Georges would have to abide by, or the permit would become null and void. Among those conditions are: • There will be no more than 30 dogs, instead of the 50 requested by the Georges, on the property. • A health inspector and County Planner David Gurss will look at the property soon. The Georges have already moved between 20 and 30 dogs onto the property, and if the current conditions don't meet approval within three months, the dogs will have to be removed. • Living quarters for people must be built or made available — and occupied — within three months. • The Georges will have to reapply for the permit in two years, and it becomes void if the land is sold or leased. • Six-foot tall trees must be brought in to screen the dog runs and kennels. • The Georges must gravel the road to their property. Area residents said the Georges already were disobeying the commission, and have had large dogs on the property for weeks. Some of those residents, the closest who lived about a half mile from the dog kennels, voiced their concerns at Monday night's planning commission meeting. "I can hear those dogs day and night," said Elizabeth Johnson, 2558 E. Humbarger. "I feel that our community is a rural community. It has been for ages, and I think it should be kept that way." Bill Pratt Sr., 2717 E. Riordan, called for an investigation of the Georges. "I don't really think there should be dogs there at this time, and they, should be moved immediately," Pratt said. "I think there should be an outside investigation at this time." Rick Hunt said the permit should have been denied, because the Georges were already disobeying the county. "That's telling me, he's going to do what he wants to do," Hunt said. "He's not going to listen to you, us or anybody else, and I don't think that's right." George, a pastor at the Bel-Air Southern Baptist Church in Salina, and his wife were not at the meeting. George Yarnevich, the attorney representing the Georges, said he understood concerns about the noise and said the Georges will comply with the conditions set by the commission. "I think the key thing here is screening what is necessary to avoid any problems," Yarnevich said. "The Georges are more than willing to go with conditions that David (Gurss) hasn't even proposed," he said. "In most cases, were willing to abide by those recommendations in a manner of trying to compromise this and have something that's workable for the Georges and their neighbors." T CAMPAIGN '96 Tired of Bob and Bill? Try Socks and Leader By The Associated Press WASHINGTON — A fourth debate in the presidential campaign holds all the trappings of a fur-flying confrontation. Television show host John McLaughlin, saying he's tired of "wishy-washy" responses from presidential candidates, plans to moderate a debate pitting Chelsea Clinton's incumbent cat Socks against Bob Dole's dog, Leader. At issue: Which would be the best first pet — a dog or a cat? The National Humane Society and the publisher of both Cats Magazine and Dog World will co-sponsor the event, set for Oct. 17 in Washington. LEADER A team arguing for Leader's side will be led by Dog World's contributing editor John Cargill. Amy Shojai, President and founder of the _ Cat Writers' Association and contribut- of Cats Magazine, ing editor will lead the cat side.
