Phillip Savage said the review was ordered last week to coordinate all existing information on Public Service Co. of Colorado's Pawnee plant. He said the study was requested by an organization of Brush area farmers, who opposed construction of the plant as proposed. The farmers, who call themselves, "Information Please," said the environmental study used to justify the proposed site for the plant failed to properly assess the impacts. PSC plans to begin construction of the $250 million project this spring or summer. Utility officials were unavailable for comment on whether the LUC study would delay their construction plans. exclude country folk. He said he was recently angered about reports in Denver newspapers predicting a return of dust-bowl days in southeast Colorado. "We got a problem, I'm sure," Betz said. "I just wish people in Denver wouldn't jump the gun. They've got dust, too." Betz. a 12-year member of the University of Colorado Board of Regents, lost three bids for Congress. However, he says he doesn't regret the defeats. "I think living in Washington that long might have changed me, changed my family. "I'm glad it didn't have a chance to happen." Although Betz's bids for Congress were unsuccessful, he found several means to dabble in politics over the years. He was elected state Democratic chairman in 1955 and served as administrative assistant to former Colorado Sen. John A. Carroll in 1957. "I don't want you to get the wrong idea," he said. "I've been a newspaper publisher more than a politician. It's hard to imagine me getting out a paper every day while I did all that politicking, but I did." Today Betz is semiretired and his son runs the newspaper. Betz still writes a daily column called "About Your Friends," gathering information from his daily beat, which includes walks through the town drugstores, coffee shops and business offices. "I know I don't do as much at the paper anymore, hut I make a contribution," he said. "They miss me when I'm gone. I don't know what would have happened to me if my son had decided there wasn't any room for me anymore." / time IMRY 60 OUT IPVTHME fy^\ May We Serve You? -KING 715 7th St. 352-2131 310 8tfi St. 352-0544 Solar institute competition fierce DENVER (UPI) -The slate 'ropolitan area, along wilh (he project coordinator attempting cities of Colorado Springs, to locate the federal govern- Boulder, Durango, Pueblo, and ment's proposed Solar Energy Grand Junction.
