Hint., aanm n, ANNOUNCES -- Radio and television personality Ed Scott, 47, announced his candidacy Wednesday for the Republican nomination for the U.S. House of Representatives from the 2nd District of Colorado. (AP Wirephoto) 'Sheriff Scott y' in Congress race DENVER (UPI) - Ed Scott, 47, a former radio station owner ana actor best known as "Sheriff Scotty" on a children's television show, announced Wednesday his GOP candidacy for the 2nd Congressional District. Scott, a former state legislator and county commissioner, said he had spent the past eight years as a private citizen, but decided it was time to run again for public office. The district now is represented by Rep. Tim Wirth, D-Colo. Scott said two things helped him decide to enter the race: Watergate, during which he said "a crisis of confidence arose in the minds of many Americans;" and his decision to sell radio station KLAK. 'The sale provides me with sufficient lime and resources to stop sitting on the sidelines," Scott said. "I have long agreed with the prrvm who Mid 'fn allow politics to become a cesspool and then to condemn it because it is a cesspool is * double sin.' "It is simply not good enough for one who might make a difference to stand idle, criticizing and wringing his hands." Scott, married and the father of six, attended the University , of Denver and the University of Washington before beginning his broadcasting career. He was an announcer at radio stations KING in Seattle and KOA and KLZ in Denver. In 1949, he joined the CBS staff ii Chicago, and worked for the next four years as a network and free-lance radio and television announcer and actor Scott returned to Denver In 1953 and had been involved in radio, television and motion pictures. In 1961, he bought the station. He also founded KLAK- KM in Denver and became owner and president of KAY( in Kansas City, Mo. Scott served as a councilman and mayor of Englewood, an Arapahoe County commissioner and a member of the Colorado Senate. He also served on the Englewood City Water Board, the Englewood Fire and Police Pension Board and the executive committee of the Colorado Urban Mayors' Association. He was the third Republican to announce his candidacy for the seat. The Rev. Robert Dugcn, former chaplain of the Colorado Senate, and Rep. Larry Hobos, R-Morrison, announced their candidacies earlier. g Lvyf*wiirv iwnvwp Bargaining biff passed; bonking biff kiffecf 1 ByCARLHILUARD proved 1B-16 and sent on to the -Make major changes in the Board of Equalization order dt- moneys from sales, bonuses, I Assoclile* PTRB Writer House, would stipulate th»l the voter registration law allowing reeling county assessors to set royalties and rentals of federal I Denver (AP) - House mem- salary top for a person In the registration by postcard and al- assessments on property at 33 lands which can be paid to I bers approved a holly-debated state's civil service system be lowing voters to register up un- per ent of actual value.

AOCK 1 ^^ Ph. 353-0246 ^ 807 8th St. Denver city employes bargaining leads to rift DENVER (UPI) -- The CuIiUov ·;!;· OVef Collective bargaining for city employes apparently has led to a bigger rift between the offices of Mayor William McNichols and F. Arnold McDermott, chairman of the Denver Career Service AuUiority. Ben Bezoff, the mayor's executive officer, last week drafted a collective bargaining proposal that would abolish McDermoU's job. It calls for combining civil service with career service into a new Career Civil Service Department. Civil Service currently handles firing, hiring, promotions and demotions of policemen and firemen, while career service handles those functions for most olher city employes. The chairman of the police- fireman-sheriffs coalition seeking collective bargaining for themselves said Wednesday they probably would oppose the draft city charter amendment proposed by Bezoff. "If it includes eliminating civil service, we're going to fight it," aid Kenneth Harris, president of the Police Protective Association. He said the coalition objected to the new department being controlled by a director and a board of directors appointed by the mayor. Harris said if the police department were controlled by an agency controlled by political appointees, the end result would be control by politicians. "I don't want to arrest a political! and fear losing my job,"he said. LOSE UGLY FAT OR PAY NOTHING Start losing weigh! today OR MONEY BACK. MONADEX is * liny sire lor eictst food. Eat Ins-weigh l«ti.
