141 Kaminski Responds to Major Objections to Cycle Park A Manitowoc lawyer has responded to four major objections against the proposed establishment of a motor recreation park in north central Manitowoc County. The responses were contained in a speech made recently to Two Rivers Area Chamber of Commerce members by Atty. Ron A. Kaminski, who owns some of the land proposed for the park. The State Department Natural Resources is investigating the feasibility of purchasing or leasing 425 acres of hilly and wooded land at the intersection of Highways 141 and 147.

The county site is the last of 59 separate locations inspected or considered by DNR officials. Eight sites were chosen for further study. Of the eight, three were not available for lease or purchase and five were rejected because of strong local opposition. "In each of the five instances in which the proposal was rejected because of strong local opposition, the local units of government, as was the case in Manitowoe County. passed resolutions early without giving the project a fair hearing on the facts." Kaminski said.

Kaminski said he was confident that "if the Manitowoc County Board supervisors were to get an in-depth study of the proposal their minds could be changed." Kaminski said the first and most prevailing objection seems to be that the location of the park would bring undesirable elements to Manitowoe County. elements would not be likely to visit the site as there is nothing there to attract them." Kaminski stressed. alcoholic beverages would be served and the facilities are designed for use only by offroad motorcycles and would not accommodate street bikes. He noted that off-road motorcycling has become a popular family oriented recreation activity in the county. A second objection.

he said. dealt with the impact on the environment. Particular attention was devoted in the feasibility report to the presence of the steep hill sites, West Twin River and a trout stream which runs through the Hidden Hills property. includes a expansion, and existing equipsanitation stanin cooking project will for the 164 Staff Photo residents of the facility. National Health Enterprises the facility's parent company, estimated the total cost of the project including construction and equipment to be in excess of $100.000, with completion scheduled for mid January.

1977. Dr. R. G. Strong.

facility medic director and current Manitowoe health officer, inspects the progress of the addition. Civil Suits Filed In Circuit Court Civil actions in which a former Mishicot police officer seeks reinstatement and contractual damages, and Tisch Mills and Two Rivers women seek personal injury damages. allegedly due to falls, have been filed in Manitowoc County Circuit Court. Joseph W. Buda, 710 Randolph Mishicot, is demanding judgment against the village for reinstatement as its police officer, and damages for back pay plus fringe benefits in the amount of $38.156.62.

Buda had filed a claim against the village, and the 90 in which the village board could have settled the claim elapsed in May. Buda then had six months in which to file a civil suit in Circuit Court, which now has been filed. He was hired as village police officer April 21, 1971 and fired by the village board Feb. 17, 1972. Buda alleges that the board's act of relieving him from his duties was null and void and had no effect because of the following: Officers of villages who are not appointed or elected officers, may only be removed by a judge of the circuit court of the county for cause, and the board meeting at which he was relieved violated provisions of the then existing Wisconsin open meeting law.

Buda said that at the time he was relieved he was earning $650 per month plus fringe benefits. Buda also has a previously filed libel and slander lawsuit pending in which four former village board members and two other village residents were named defendants. That suit seeks $186.000 in damages. In actions resulting from injuries allegedly due to falls, a Tisch Mills couple. lone and Harry Ballard.

suing Badger Mutual Insurance Co. of Milwaukee 26th and Viola Novy of 815 S. Manitowoc, for $50,000 and Dorothy Basken of Two Rivers is suing the city of Two Rivers for $25.000. The complaint in the Ballard suit alleges that on Dec. 21.

1973 lone Ballard slipped and fell on a patch of concealed by snow, while she was lawfully on the premises of Viola Novy. This complaint also alleges that bodily damages included a fractured right humerus, contusions and abrasions, requiring medical and hospital expenses, and resulting in pain, suffering, loss of employment and income and diminished earning capacity that are permanent in nature. The complaint in the Basken suit alleges that she sustained a severely broken ankle on April 21. 1976. allegedly due to the detective conditions of Adams Street in Two Rivers.

The city negligently and carelessly permitted a portion of the street to become and remain in a condition unsafe and dangerous to pedestrian and other traffic. the complaint additionally alleges, maintaining that the city knew of such danger, or in the exercise of reasonable care should have known of such danger, and allowed the street to go unrepaired and the danger to unabated. The complaint further alleges that a motion of claim was served on the city July 12 and disallowed Oct. 12 by reason of failure of the Two Rivers City Council to pass on the claim within 90 days of its presentation. Fatal Accident Trial on Jan.

18 Sheboygan County Judge John G. Buchen has set Jan. 18 as the jury trial date in the case in which James J. Herman. 19, of Rt.

1, Cleveland, is charged with two counts of homicide by intoxicated use of a vehicle. The trial date was set in that county following Herman's plea of innocent to the charges, and his demand for a was charged following the deaths of Dale W. Oehldrich, 22. of Rt. 1, Cleveland, and Lisa R.

Scheidt, 17, of 655 Westview Cleveland. They were riding a motorcycle that was struck from behind by a jeep July 24, at the intersection of County Trunk MM and Highway 42 in Sheboygan County. School Location Due Date Is Set Closing date for purchase of an elementary school site from the Bertler interests will be Dec. 11. the Manitowoe School District Board was informed Thursday night.

The 14.45 acre site is located on the city's far northwest side near Fleetwood Drive. The Fiscal Board previously authorized purchase of the property for $33.235. City Atty. Paul Lawent said that he had negotiated for release of gas utility easements on the proposed school site. City Clerk June Fetzer was authorized to record the deed for the property.

An additional objection has been that other property owners will suffer the taking of their land, Kaminski stated.

A 1970 law authorizing acquisition of land for motorcycle park specifically prohibits use of condemnation powers. 400 acre site is only a projection," he said, "and in all probability we are talking about a 150 to 250 acre site. In any event, if there are landowners who are concerned that the state may take their land for motorcycle park. they need not fear same since such would be against the law." The final objection has to do with the possible adverse effect on property values within surrounding area. Kaminski noted that the primary areas like Hidden Hills Cycle Park and the adjacent Hiddey Valley site have, been used for recreational purposes for many years.

He said that recreation land -generally was worth more than bare farm land and therefore he not see how an addition of $300.000 in improvements to the area could in any way adversely affect the property values." The loss of tax revenue by the towns and county would be relatively small compared to the assets which such a park would bring to the area. according to Kaminski. The DNR has built up a fund of about $1 million for a motorcycle recreation park based on an extra $2 annual license. Kaminski said the entire $1 million would be expended on the site, including $362.000 for land acquisition and develop- Inflation (Continued From Page 1) the amount left after taxes and adjusted for inflation grew five-tenths of 1 per cent in October. However, real earnings were down four-tenths per cent over the year because of higher taxes.

Consumer spending has slowed down over the last four months. The slowdown was apparently a key factor in what administration economists are calling a pause in the recovery from the recession. The surge in business spending may help counteract that slowdown. Durable goods include anything with a life expectancy of three years or more. October's increase was estimated $1.4 billion.

or three per cent, pushing new orders to a level of $48.04 billion. The biggest chunk of the increase was on the business side. where manufacturers of the capital goods used to produce other goods were up $1.7 billion. Traditionally, when business approaches the limit of its capacity to produce goods, it begins spending more rapidly on expansion, and that generates new jobs in both the industry doing the spending and the industry doing the supplying. ment and an additional $300,500 for improvements.

Projected annual operating costs of $40.000 would be covered entirely by revenues generated on the site. There would be no cost to county taxpayers for the project. The park would be operated and maintained by the DNR as a sub-unit of Point Beach State Forest north of Two Rivers. he noted. There would be a fulltime manager, and four seasonal personnel available on the premises.

Concessions like parts, accessories, snack foods and prepared foods would be sub contracted to be local available people. for snowmobile competition events and trail use during the off season. he added. "There are at least five other communities across the United States that have developed publicly run motorcycle Kaminski continued. "In each instance there has been no adverse reaction to the parks and they have become so popular that most communities had to expand the facilities.

Kaminski said that promotion of the motorcycling sport within the county would have a positive effect on local industry. Paragon Electric Co. of Two Rivers is a subsidiary of AMF Inc. which manufactures Harley-Davidson motorcycles and several foundries the area produce parts for the motorcycle industry. Kaminski said there were several qualities inherent in the study site and surrounding area that indicate it would be a feasible location for a motorcycle park.

He noted that it was well located in terms of population concentrations. easily accessible via a major highway. large enough to permit adequate development while retaining sufficient buffer area. largely free of conflicting adjacent land uses and that it has a history of the kind of use proposed for the study area. Kaminski said that the land has been used for approximately seven years for various motorcycle events and that there had been no arrests or complaints made to the County Sheriff-Traffic Dept.

regarding behavioral problems during these events. The park would have camping facilities and other items normally associated with a state park. The feasibility report indicated that more than 20.000 tourists could be expected to visit the site each year. "Following Kaminski's presentation. the Chamber of Commerce board of directors went on record endorsing the motorcycle park and asking the County Board of Supervisors to reconsider its action opposing the project.

A citizens advisory committee of 15 persons is being formed to investigate the pros and cons of the park and make recommendations to the County Board. Seven persons already responded to invitations to join the committee. Kaminski said. A public hearing on the proposed park project is scheduled for Dec. 1 by the DNR at Manitowoe.
