AM) t a k e a bow.' Today's column is being rtevoled lo t w o tellers which Tom I). Stevens has received from readers in Canyon County. Dear Tom Stevens: After yesterday I felt lhal I had to write this letter. Las I week my boy saw a pool of blood in Ihe road. II was obvious (hat some small animal had been knocked with a car. but there wasn't a sign of one. This was a t ? a.m. Al 3:15 p.m. when the boy came back from school he found a little puppy lying in Ihe'dilch. barely breathing, almost frozen stiff and covered with blood. I wrapped the little guy up and tried bringing warmth lo his body. All he could do was moan quietly and then he finally died. I went home and cried. Thai poor litile puppy had lain oul there for nine hours because the person who had hit him had thought he was dead and dumped him in the ditch where no one could see him. Yesterday we came across a beautiful cat lhal had jusl been hit by a car and left. The cat was going around in circles in a daze with blood gushing oul of his mouth and the area where there was once an eye. Please lell your readers that if they knock an animal with their car isn't jusl unconscious. A loi of people won't even bother checking in case they have lo take the animal lo a vel and fool the bill. Please let me know ifil is possible for Ihe public lo purchase something lo put an animal that is too far gone out of its misery at the scene of Ihe accident I think il would be a good idea to carry something like this in the car. Sincerely. Caldwell reader Dear Mr. Stevens: i wish you could pul something in your column to make people be better pet owners. I live in Nampa and there sre lliree dogs on my block. Two nf the owners are neglectful and one is a good owner. Two of (he dogs.ireInrnei! loose whenever Ihe people think lhal the dog catcher is not on duly.

Fact finders suggest changes in negotiations CAI.DWF.U, - Changes have been recommended in four of nine ilems brought before a fact-finding commission by representatives of Local 1B21 of the International Association of Fire Fighters as matters of dispute in negotiating a contract with the city of Caldwell. While no: considered binding by either city officials or union representatives, the recommendations basically allow negotiations to continue. One rcconuneuiliilio.') is for tin. 1 two (actions to "meet at Ihe earliest possible dale, and in no event later than Monday. March 1, ti)7G, and give serious consideration to the recommendations determined, which are felt by this commission to be in the besl interests of the parties concerned." Caldwell Mayor l!ob Pasley. who Tuesday night released Ihe commission's findings lo The News-Tribune, said some members of Ihe city council are out of town and he was not sure a meeting could be arranged by Monday, but thai "a meeting will take place before any aclioa is laken on Ihe recommendations." He sail! copies would be given lo all council memhcis 'for study" prior to Ihe meeting. After a Feb. 18 hearing in the Canyon County Courlhouse. at which time representatives from the city and (!ie firefighter's union presented (heir cases to a thi ee-man fact-finding body called for by (lie union, the commission found "no dispute remained" in four of the nine areas of contention presented. These were holidays, which remained unchanged: clothing allowance, which was increased by $25 per year: granting a higher rate, of pay lo firemen who are repeatedly required to perform in [insitinns of increased responsibility: and bargaining time. Recommendations included a change in the grievance procedure, a work week reduced from M to 54 hours per week; a change in management prerogative with Ihe addition lhal "no member can be dismissed without jusl cause" and a 12 per cent wage increase in cerlain classifications and ID per'com in others. Not included in Ihc lisled recommendations was the question of additional vacation lime which had been requested by the union negotiating committee, indicating thai no change was suggested by the commission. Serving on Ihc fact-finding ermmiissior, were Ered J. Smith, Uciisc. chairman: Ered Stringfield, Caldwell, appointed by Ihe cily. and Jim Martinez. Boise, unini\ appointee. According to earlier statements hy Pasley. Ihe city's position, particularly in Ihe area of wages, has been thai '"the council can't do for une deparlment of cily employes whul they can't do for all." Al the lime negotiations were stopped by the union's request for the fad-finding commission. J'asley said Ihe council had not had opportunity lo make a salary offer because budget preparations we're incomplete. While officials have indicated lhal all cily employes have been granted a raise, no official statement concerning percentage of increase has been released. The firemen had requested a 31 per rail wage increase.
