Water Sale Threatens Lower Arkansas Valley By GORDON G. GAUSS DENVER ( A P ) - Urban development and growing demands for recreational facilities are threatening to change radically llie rich irrigated sec- lions of the lower Arkansas Hiver Valley of southeast Colorado. Tile peril develops from efforts to purchase water now used for the crops. Traditionally, the land is best known for its Reeky Ford melons hut its produce extends far beyond that into vegetables, wheat, alfalfa, livestock. sorghum and Nobody knows at present how immediate lire threat is, but it lias reached the point where an official agency issued a report on what might be expected in I'rowcrs County if a rumored water purchase goes through. Several legislators have expressed concern over the prospects !o .a reporter. So have water experts. One 'Rape of Valley' lawmaker, Hep. Carl Showaller, K-Greeley, characterized a prospective water riglils sale as "the rape of the Arkansas Valley." There is a feeling among spokesmen for agriculture t h a t the situation which appears to be facing the Arkansas Valley al Ihis lime coulcl be repeated in (he Soulh Plalln Valley of northern Colorado in a gener- alion and Hie Colorado Hiver Valley sometime in the future. Two things precipitated the concern about (he future of agriculture in (he lower Arkansas Valley. One is the slate's effort lo purchase water rights from (he Caflin Canal for a 10,000- acra fool |eniianent pool be- Junta to be used as a recreational facility. The other is a report that some developer -not named in Ihe state document--wants lo purchase (he waler rights of Ihe Amity Canal, perhaps for as much as $15 million. It supports a third of Prowers County's irrigation. The legislature appropriated $1,050,000 two years ago to buy water rights for the recreation pool, primarily for use by boaters and fishermen. One deal fell Ihrough but olber negotiations are under way. It is the altempt lo buy Callin Canal water which has spurred Representative Showalter to'op- posilion. He said he understands that belween 900 and 1100 shares of the ditch water will be needed to replace about 3,500 acre-feel in the reservoir annually to offset evaporation and seepage. Out of Production "It donrerns me," he told a reporter, "that the Stale of Colorado is stalling in the direction of taking'agricultural lands out of production in an area ment plan can )e designed The conclusion .says (hat results of the study "indicate that the value of water from the county's viewpoint is considers; bly higher than the value determined from t h e viewpoint of the direct agricultural seller. . "The losses in the community in lerms of business earnings, incomes and tax revenues should bs considered before Water transfers are approved." The study says many agricultural producer's .who have "eked out a living since World War II cannot be criticized" for wanting lo sell waler rights since they are · Hearing, retirement and bidding by municipalities has significantly increased the value of water shares. It cites an instance where bidding boosted the sale price of some water in Crowley County from $250 a share three years ago to over $900 this year.

The official police report of the April i8 incident says the patrolman, Larry R. Tallerday, struck Kirk Chapman of Aurora 'with a. closed fist on the face and rose" after Chapman allegedly "pushed" two police officers and ripped buttons and name tags from their-uniforms. Chapman's legs were blown off in a land mine explosion in Vietnam. Putnam said the suspension stemmed from a department investigation, and Chapman never ..filed an official complaint. "Our report was kind of one- sided," the chief said. "All we had to go on was statements from the. officers involved and from'reporters: "We. tried to get in touch with Chapman,- but he never responded." Putnam said Chapman has no telephone and officers left messages with his landlady on three consecutive days, but the Fryingpan-Arkansiis trans- that is economically depressed 1 Arkansas Valley when the lo maintain a pool of qdeslion- able recreational value."
