"We'll take on this respon- . sibility," Hunter told members of the Greeley Rotary Club. "We want to tell our citizens that business is not the evil entity it's made out to be." Hunter, executive vice president of the chamber since late February, said the nation's business community scored an important victory with last year's Congressional defeat of the common situs picketing bill. Thirty volunteers were That bill, which was heavily honored by the Weld County backed, by labor, saw strong Probation Department at a provides one-to-one counseling business lobbying against the dinner earlier this week. - for probationers, measure.

"It has been said that politics should be the part-time job of every citizen and I couldn't agree more," Hunter said. Among bills now pending before Congress which Hunter said businessmen should oppose are measures creating a consumer protection agency, placing a ceiling on hospital cost increases and establishing some form of national health insurance. Hunter said many of the jobs proposed for- the consumer agency are already handled by existing agencies, such as the . Food and Drug Administration, Consumer Product Safety Commission and the Environmental Protection Agency. "It should make you shudder," he told the Rotarians, adding that he believes the existfng agencies have created headaches for the business community.. · ' The health insurance proposal, too, could cause headaches for business, he said. "If you're enamored by Social Security, if you're in love with the U.S. Postal Service, you're going to marvel at the wonders national health insurance will bring you," he said. Hunter said he already believes the nation faces serious difficulties because of big government. One in five persons works for government agencies, he said, and the national debt averages $11,000 for each citizen. By JOHNSEELMEYER Tribune Stall Wrlltr Weld County Commissioners Wednesday encouraged the operator of a landfill south of Fort Lupton to take steps to prevent trash from blowing from the dump. John Hall, an employe of the county's health department, said several complaints have been received .about papers blowing from the landfill operated by Ralph Roweeder. "The nature of this complaint arises because cover is not being applied at frequent- enough intervals," Hall said. State law calls for trash to be covered every day, but Glen Paul, another health department official, said that's often not economical, especially for landfills which serve less than 50,000 persons. Health department officials had discussed daily watering of the trash to keep it from blowing, but department director Dr. Franklin Yoder said concerns arose about possible pollution of groundwater as the the water seeped through the trash. Ideally, Paul said, the dump should be closed and facilities opened elsewhere. "We're just sitting on trouble down there," Paul said. He said solid : waste disposal has been one of the biggest problems during the 30 years he has worked with public health. "It's been one of our biggest headaches and it-still has me backed into a corner," Paul said. , The commissioners told Roweeder to built a fence around the property in an effort when county officials found Big R of Greeley at a cost of to control the trash and will they built a road grader station $216. schedule further discussion of on property the county didn't Ambulance Director Bob the problem. own.
