Environmental groups fo zero in on nuclear power pfonfs Frl..Feb.n.l»7» CREEI.EV (Colo.) TRIBUNE 11 DENVER (UPI) - Environmental groups, which led the fight to keep the 1976 Winter Olympics out of Colorado and to prevent further underground nuclear testing in the state, say their next target is nuclear power plants. An organisation known as Coloradans for Safe Power, an umbrella group for several environmental concerns, is staking the issue to the voters in the November general election. Voters will bs asked to approve a proposal requiring operators of any nuclear power plant to receive a two-thirds favorable vote in both houses of the state general assefmtXy before they could build, expand and enlarge any nuclear facility. Mrs. Judy Elling, a spokeswoman for the organization, said that would apply to the the Butcher Block 251811Hi««e. 352-OM1 Greeley's Finest Meat And Deli Items We Feature Butcher Block Blue Ribbon Beef (Our Own Corn Fed) FOOD STAMP SHOPPERS WELCOME We Now Have MILK-EGGS--COTTAGE CHEESE--BUTTER-BREAD Chile, Sandwiches of all Kinds, Salads, Cheese Cake, Puddings, Party Trays.

Operators of nuclear facilties also would have to prove they had'adequate safety systems and would have to demonstrate that storage or disposal of radioactive materials and waste could be carried out without endangering public health and safety. In order to get the issue on the election ballot, the organization needed 03,040 signatures on petitions. It was able to get 89,000. "My feeling is that we will be successful," Mrs. Elting said. 'There has really been great interest developing in this. Peopleare becoming concerned about the situation." Many of those involved in the ef.'ort, she said, are the same people who led the successful drive to have the 1976 Wintei Olympic games booted out of Colorado and to force future underground nuclear testing to a vote of the people. Groups involved in the latest effort include the Colorado Open Space Council, the Colorado Federation of Teachers, Environmental Action, Friends of the Earth and a local chapter of the Sierra Club. Mrs. Elting said the group now was working to "educate people and raise a level of consciousness about {he whole issue.. We want to pose questions we think need to .be posed -- is it safe, can radioactive materials be stored safely, is it technically possible, is it even economical? "We feel that we should stop and look at it now and sec if that is the right way to go," she said. "There are a lot of possible alternatives. We need to look at them very seriously. One area we need to examine is conservation, ways not to waste energy. "Some scientists have estimated we waste about 50 per cent of our energy resources," she said. "Many people feel that conservation can be an excellent source of energy, particularly during the interim while we are looking for some long-range answers." Haskell bill would require advance notice of cutbacks WASHINGTON (UPI) - Sen. Floyd K. Haskell, D-Colo., is cosponsoring a bill to require advance notice of planned military cutbacks and provide for planning assistance to affected communities. "It's essential that the federal government help communities that have come to depend on military installations recover when those installations close or cut back jobs," Haskell said Thursday. "1 firmly believe that the government has an obligation to help with a smoothtransitionwhen military projects have become economically unfeasible." Haskell said the bill, prompted in parl by proposed plans to reduce the work force at the Pueblo Army Depot, also would provide wage compensation, retraining and continuing health benefits to affected workers. "If such help were availabe right now, we could have some assurance that the hundreds who the Army says will lose their jobs al PAD could find new jobs and be retrained if necessary," he said. Haskell and Sen. William Hathaway, D-Maine, also asked other members of the Senate Finance Committee Thursday to help eliminate $5 billion in tax loopholes during the coming fiscal year. The committee next month will begin considering the House-passed Tax Reform Act. Haskell said the bill still offered loo many lax breaks to high-income and corporate taxpayers,. Bundy admits he lied to authorities Ity DAVID BKISCOE Associated Press Writer SALT LAKE CITY (API-Final arguments wore scheduled today in the aggravated kidnap trial of Theodore R. Bundy who Thursday denied the charge but admitted he lied to authorities in an arrest that led to his identification by an alleged kidnap victim. Rundy, 29, of Tacoma, Wash., also answered questions about virginity, right and wrong, and whether he ever used handcuffs, a fake mustache or liad changed the license plates on his car. Third Districl Court Judge Stewart Hanson Jr., who is hearing the case without a jury at Bundy's request, was to take it under advisement following closing arguments. Defense attorney John O'Connell said he might call one rebuttal witness prior to closing arguments on the trial's fifth day. Bundy, under questioning from his attorney, said he evaded police Aug. 16 because he had been parked in a residential neighborhood smoking marijuana and wanted to clear the smoke and paraphernalia out of his Volkswagen. Police said they found handcuffs and a crowbar in the car and later charged Bundy with possession of burglary tools. Bundy, a former University of Utah law student, said he lied to officers, telling them he had been to a movie. He said he had actually just been out drivine.

Fred Anderson, R- Loveland, discusses his bill before the Senate Business Affairs and Labor Committee which would divide regulation of Electronic Funds Transfer Systems among state commissioners of banking and savings and loan institutions and the head of the Department of Regulatory Agencies. (AP Wirephoto) Senate unit OKs funds bill DENVER (UPI) - The Colorado Senate Business Affairs Committee has approved a bill to regulate Electronic Funds Transfer Systems already in use by some savings and loans institutions in the state. The senators added a controversial amendment exempting retail businesses from the mandatory sharing requirements of the bill, then voted 7-2 Thursday lo pass it on to the Senate floor for debate. Senate President Fred Andeson, R-Loveland, sponsored the measure, lie said lie was concerned about the retailers' amendment because it would allow them exclusive use of their equipment while financial institutions would have lo share their equipment with the retailers. "There is still more regulation than ) really care for, but 1 do believe there is adequate consumer representation,"Anderson said. Rep. Robert Orr, D-Pucblo. I lie sponsored of a similar bill in the Colorado House, said Anderson's bill failed to protect the consumers. "I'm noi sold on EFTS but \vc can'l slop the progress of technology." U r r s a i d . "Al least let's protect the consumer for things they can't prevent." Orr said ll'e consumer would be confused by the several regulatory authorities included in Anderson's bill. Orr's measure would have EFTS regulated by one agency -- the Uniform Consumer Credit Code administrator. VD in state increases DENVER ( U P I ) - State health officials say an I I per cent increase in venereal disease in Colorado lasl year compares with a similar nationwide trend. Dr. Tom Vernon, chief epidemiologist for the Colorado Health Department, Thursday said gonorrhea accounted for all but 317 of the 11,848 cases reported across the state in 1975. While the incidence of gonorrhea rose nearly 12 per cent, the number of syphilis cases dropped from :(8l to ;!)·), a decline of about 17 per cent. Persons in (he 20-to 24-year age group accounted for most of the venereal diseases. Teenagers from 15 through 1!) accounted for nearly 21 per cent of the gonorrhea cases and more than "i per cent of the L'iisus of syphilis. Despite the increase in the number of venereal disease cases, Vernon said lie was encouraged by the decrease in syphilis. "The decline in syphilis is attributable to an increasing effort to trace the contacts of infected individuals," Vernon said.
