Fish head Vandals / Area suffers rash of damage M i ' \*J jf,ROM PAGE A1 Si-ash can with smoldering mops. 1} "It was spooky," said Tread way, the executive director of the Central Kansas Council of Girl Scouts. "I was scared. I think they had iheir party and tried to clean it up with the inops." * One week later, a closer look revealed $700 worth of damage. Windows had been shot out. ;-A mattress had been slashed. « But the camp isn't the only property in the 'ftrea, east of North Ohio on the border of Saline «nd Ottawa counties, to face problems during ihe past two months. According to a property Manager and law officials, cattle-grazing land jpwned by six property owners near the area has faced extensive vandalism, including a possible arson that burned a garage — and 'Jhree vehicles — to the ground. Ji On Oct. 3, Saline County Rural Fire District *iSIo. 7 answered a grass fire call and found the turned building. Three cows also were shot "'and killed that same night. The Saline County '^Sheriffs Department is looking at the incident ;tes a suspicious fire. ««' Three men will be questioned Monday by ihe Ottawa County Sheriffs Department in Connection with the recent damage the area 3and Camp Sacajawea. ; * Treadway was used to giving keys to Boy ^Scouts who did projects out at the campsite, so &he had never felt a reason to verify whether ^hey actually were members of a troop. The 13- acre campsite was deeded to the Girl Scout Council in 1963. ';t "We've never had any problems before," Broadway said. y She connected the party to the key she rent**d out, but when she called the young man to Ijget it back, she found out he was at the St. •"Francis Academy in Ellsworth, a psychiatric- based treatment center for youths. "We're not going to let some young punks or vandals intimidate us." Debbie Treadway Central Kansas Council of Girl Scouts executive director Treadway then decided to stop renting out the camp to anyone except Girl Scout troops. She changed the locks. One week later, a different young man claiming to be a Boy Scout walked in wanting to rent the campsite. Treadway checked him out. He was lying. "He talked about how much he loved the Boy Scout program," she said. "I tell you what. They've got it down." The young man couldn't be traced. He gave a false address and name. Treadway said she had not had any problems until Oct. 4, one day after the fire, when some Girl Scouts saw a young man put up a "Camp Sack" sign, apparently for directions to a party. The sign was taken down. Even so, despite the danger, Treadway is determined to keep allowing Girl Scouts to use the camp. "We're not going to let some young punks or vandals intimidate us," Treadway said, her voice rising. "I will prosecute anyone who trespasses there. I won't mess around." A sign of the times Mike Jenkins, who manages 500 acres of the property where the fire took place, estimated the damage to be around $50,000. Jenkins works for an absentee landlord he wouldn't identify. Shane Komarek, assistant chief for fire district No. 7, which covers the north-central area of Saline County, said he didn't know how much damage the fire caused. The three cows, Jenkins believes, were shot with a .22 caliber rifle by people riding in the back of a truck. Two more cattle probably will have to be destroyed because of injuries, he said. "The sad .thing is, with the market being so tight, a single cow is your profit margin," Jenkins said. "If you lose one mature animal, that's the difference between a loss and a profit for the year." Jenkins said vandalism was a problem all the time, but it had escalated during the past two months. Ottawa County Undersheriff Karmon Kindall said he wouldn't comment of the specifics of the vandalism, but he did estimate that $4,500 of farm equipment had been damaged. He also said he noticed it had been going on the past two months. He is working with the Saline County Sheriffs Office in connection with the vandalism. Saline County Sheriff Darrell Wilson said the fire and the vandalism, as well as the activity in the camp, were being investigated. Wilson said he didn't know whether the events at Camp Sacajawea and the areas in Ottawa County are related. "I think these things have been scattered out during the last two months," he said. "The serious things have been the fire, and even though you have people checking into the camp, it isn't all that serious yet. In fact, what's going on in the camp may be a different situation all together. "I don't know that there's any pattern to the whole area, that there's any problem out there. It could be some random acts." But .others such as Jenkins and Treadway are keeping their eyes open. "Whoever did this appears to have had some inside knowledge, like they know the area pretty well," Jenkins said. "It's scary. And it's too bad." The Associated Press Robert Burns, Sydney, carries a 77-pound mulloway from his boat Wednesday after struggling with the fish for almost an hour on the Hawkesbury River north of Sydney, Australia. It is one of the'biggest of its kind caught on the river. Onlookers on the bank cheered as he landed the prize. T BASEBALL PLAYOFFS New Yorkers hail home run catcher 12-year-old defends reaction to fly ball that may have been caught By LARRY McSHANE The Associated Press NEW YORK — Yankee fans are toasting him. Orioles fans want to wring his little neck. The most crucial glovework in the opening game of the American League championship series became a tale of two cities Thursday: New York bestowed instant celebrity on 12-year-old Jeffrey Maier, the fan whose quick glove boosted his beloved Bronx Bombers to a victory, while Baltimore cried larceny. Baltimore Mayor Kurt Schmoke opened his weekly news conference Thursday by saying the stolen catch showed New York doesn't have a true zero-tolerance policy toward crime. "We were robbed and they saw it and nobody did anything about it," Schmoke said. WBAL radio's talk show phone lines were inundated with callers outraged about the kid and about right field umpire Rich Garcia's failure to call interference. Another station urged listeners to send in old eyeglasses for Garcia. In New York, callers to WFAN's all-sports radio shows somehow were less irate. Jeffrey's eighth-inning lean- and-grab of a Derek Jeter homer that looked like it could be caught landed him on ABC's "Good Morning America." A deli in his hometown, Old Tappan, N.J., ran a Jeff Maier lunch special. (It includes a turkey sandwich.) And the pint- sized star received an ovation inside The All-Star Cafe at Times Square. The Little Leaguer, who played hooky from school to meet the press Thursday, was quick to play down his nationally televised (and endlessly replayed) grab of a fly ball that had seemed destined to die in the glove of Orioles right fielder Tony Tarasco. The Associated Press Jeffrey Maier, Old Tappan, N.J., poses Wednesday in a Yankee outfit on the set of "Good Morning America" a day after he pulled a ball into the stands for a home run. "I'm not as famous as the Yankees," Jeffrey said. "The players, go out there every day. The Yankees deserve the credit." Jeffrey also had an answer for those who accuse him of changing the outcome of the game: "They don't understand. If they were me, a 12-year-old kid at a New York Yankees playoff game, they would try and catch the ball, too." After lunch — paid for by the Daily News, which also served up eight tickets to Game Two and a ride to Yankee Stadium — Jeffrey turned down $1,000 for an afternoon appearance on "Geraldo" to go to the 3 p.m. game instead. Not everyonte in the New York area was gloatir "To think that^his kid is a hero and to idolize hinvis absurd," said Greg Nalbandian, a\eal estate appraiser in the kid's\hometown. "He interfered with a pl^y and it's a playoff game." "The kid should be embarrassed, not proud, to go on TV," said Dave Bernroth, a house painter from Ringwood, N.J. Baltimore Sun sports columnist Ken Rosenthal referred to the kid in print as "the little miscreant." ON THE RECORD Hospital report Salina Regional Health'Center PENN ADMISSIONS — None.
