8 GREELEY (Colo.) TRIBUNE Thurs., April2«, 1973 State school funding issue switches to House By GORDON G. GAUSS Auwtated Press Writer . DENVER (APJ-Tlie focus on (Ute aid to education and relief for property tax payers fhifted Wednesday night from Colorado's House of Representatives . to the state Senate where Denver Republican Joe Shoemaker is sponsoring bills which counter the program endorsed by Gov. John Love. One of Shoemaker's key bills, to provide rebates from income tax for property taxpayers was on the Senate's calendar for de- bate Thursday. As introduced by the Denver lawmaker, who also heads the Joint Budget Committee, the measure calls for a $60 million return to homeowners. However, Shoemaker told reporters he intends to trim the amount to $40 million. Also introduced by the Denver Republican is a bill providing an additional $50 million in state aid to schools through an increase in the state allocation per pupil from $518 to $596. The bill is in the appropriations committee which Shoemaker heads. Activity on school legislation moved to the Senate when the House passed Wednesday $312' million bill for state aid to schools supported by the governor. Shoemaker told reporters he doesn't think the state can afford that much money, even though it includes both additional school funds and property tax relief. Shoemaker said that there is "nu way" to stop the legisla- DON COOK Don Cook There is absolutely no reason why Greeley School District Six cannot provide state and national leadership in solving educational problems. Individuals as well as groups must be listened to. Parental and student committees are meeting and considering the issues but are not being listened to. Why? Every citizen should feel free to express his opinion and feel that it will be considered. Openness to the community input on these issues is paramount. As accountability chairman, I believe that I have proven my ability to listen ressponsively and act responsibly. t can establish a climate of positive cooperation only with your help. Vote Don Cook Mayl ture from launching other programs costing about $20 million in new appropriations. These cannot be handled, he said, if the $312 million school bill is passed. Sen. John Bermingham, R- Dcnver, indicated that he intends to support Shoemaker's position when he referred to education as "a sacred cow" in Colorado and said that he intends to vote against the House- approved bill because its adoption would mean cuts in proposed institutional programs. Meanwhile, Rep. Bob Leon Kirscht, Pueblo Democrat, told reporters he has not abandoned his fight to secure passage of a homestead exemption. The House refused to consider the exemption as part of the school bill, even though the principle has been endorsed by the governor. Kirscht said he feels certain the bill will come back to the House for consideration of Senate changes and that probably a conference committee eventually will write it. He also indicated that perhaps Shoemaker's property tax rebate bill for homeowners might be adapted to the homestead exemption, including relief for renters. Frontier plane skids off runway DENVER (AP) - A Frontier Airlines 737 jet with 51 passengers and a crew of six aboard skidded off a runway at Stapleton International Airport while making an emergency landing after its hydraulic system lost pressure on a flight from Denver to St. Louis Wednesday morning. No injuries were reported and the plane suffered only minor damage when it slid off the end of the runway and came to a stop about 50 feet away on a dirt strip, Frontier officials said. Regents give CU President Thieme vote of confidence 'State land commission 7 would quickly be at odds BOULDER, Colo. (AP) Following successive votes of no-confidence by 719 members of the non-teaching staff at the University of Colorado and 802 faculty members, President Frederick Thieme won a 4-2 vote of confidence Wednesday by the CU Board of Regents. The resolution declared the school has been "well served" by Thieme and called on the university staff, faculty and student body to unite behind its president. Dale Atkins, who introduced the resolution, accused the faculty of voting against Thieme for "their own selfish reasons." Geraldine Bean and Byron Johnson were the regents who voted against the Atkins' resolution. Mrs. Bean said the adminis- Iralion has been highly in- sensitive about the feelings an I input of the staff. | -·' The non-teaching staff members voted no-confidence in Thieme 719-267, with 306 abstentions, Tuesday, . /' I ' Slot car resets In the 200-lap wonip-womp race Tuesday evening Steve Foster was fastest qualifier with 12 laps, B sections.

By CARL MILLIARD Associated Press Writer DENVER (AP) - A five member "state commission" created under a new Colorado Land Policy Act might immediately be at odds with areas of local government, according to testimony at a hearing on the new proposal Wednesday. The hearing was the second on the land use act proposed under Senate Bill 377. The bill recognizes that land use planning is, and should be, conducted at the local level of government. But it also notes there are areas in which local governments simply cannot act. The bill designates the state commission as the state branch of authority in matters' of "statewide concern." The com- mission is apoinled by the governor and has authority to review and disapprove local land use plans. An El Paso County commissioner, Stan Johnson, said the bill "reflects courage," which he said is needed to tell municipal and county officials "they are not going to do it at all anymore." Johnson said the bill might be called the "Colorado state takeover act." He said local government has failed to act in some cases because it has neither the money nor the staff. B u t ' in other cases, he said, the stale itself has failed to exercise wise and prudent leadership in the areas of land use. Johnson generally praised the Radio /haek ONE-WEEK ONLY STEREO SPECTACULAR. · · SAVE OVER 20% ON THIS SPECIALLY MATCHED REALISTIC COMPONENT MUSIC SYSTEM SALE $ PRICE 189 T7i« STA-1B AM-FM 5f«r«o ff«*iV*r 129.95 Vo/u* Two MC-5OO AcouMtic SvjfMfufon Sptakir* «0.00 Va/tf* Th* LAB-12 Automatic Stormo Changer , 49.95 Value A Total Separate ffems Prfc* Of 239.9O Ihe fealuie-patked Receiver has inputi and outputs for adding a jlereo (ape deck; and separale bass, treble, and balance controls for personalized stereo listening.

He said it should be elected and be responsible to a constituency rather than appointed. He said an appointed commission could act in such a manner to cause local government to rapidly deteriorate. Johnson suggested that the commission might consist of local elected officials who arc members of land planning commissions. One of the bills sponsors Sen. Joe Schieffelin, R-Lakewood, said the five member commission must work full time, and duties of local elected officials are such that they could not do this. He indicated that a larger commission might be too cumbersome. Jim Austin, the city manager for Montrose, said if local governments could get better cooperation from state agencies they might be able to solve their own land problems. Two years ago there were no planners in Montrose, he said, and now there are eight and "getting them together at the same time is quite a job." He suggested (lie qualifications for planners might be strengthened but said he doubted the new law on land use and planning would do the job any better than laws now on the books. He said Montrose and its neighboring communities are now doing things on a cooperative basis and want to retain their local autonomy. The assumption is a frequent topic in the comprehensive land-use package and there are frequent references to stopping growth on the Front Range and increasing it in other areas. More than 150 people jammed the committee room to hear the discussion on the bill and committee officials indicated the next hearing would be conducted in the House or Senate chambers. 14 win Merit Scholarships EVANSTON, 111.
