According to the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife, a new sablefish limit of 8,000 pounds per trip for trawlers will go into effect one minute after midnight on the morning of Friday, Aug. 22. The limits are designed to lengthen the season on the black cod, according to an ODFW spokesman. And at the same time on the morning of Sunday, Aug.

31, new limits will increase the amount of Sebastes complex rock fish that may be caught north of the Coos Bay North Jetty. The limit is currently 25,000 pounds and will be raised to 30,000 pounds. In addition, the current limit of 10,000 pounds of yellowtail rock fish will be raised to 12,500 pounds. According to the ODFW, the regulations have been set to accommodate various sizes of boats.

The ocean sport salmon season north of Cape Falcon has been closed, but fishing is being allowed in the mouth of the Columbia River, state officials told Associated Press. The closure took effect at 12:01 a.m. today after Oregon fishery officials determined sport fishermen would exceed the catch quota of 103,000 for the area some time Monday, according to Maj. Roy Hyder of the Oregon State Police game division. But the area extending from the Astoria Bridge and Buoy 10 on the Columbia River will remain open to sport anglers, Hyder said.

The area closed extends from Cape Falcon north to the red buoy line in the mouth of the Columbia River at Astoria, Hyder said. The area from Cape Falcon south to Cape Blanco was closed to sport fishing last week. Sport fisherman had been averaging a total catch of about 13,000 salmon per day during the last five days in the area north of Cape Falcon near the mouth of the Columbia River, Hyder said. "We just opened the fishing into Buoy 10 and it wasn't as good as expected," he said. "The result was that people went back out to sea.

He said the catch on Sunday exceeded 15.000 salmon. Fishermen are limited to two coho or chinook salmon a day, with no more than six allowed for any seven consecutive days. while traveling northbound near Lakeshore Drive about 6:15 a.m. and overturned in the ditch, Oregon State Police reported. Mills told OSP that he momentarily lost consciousness and when he woke up he was pinned between the seats and the roof of the van, OSP reported.

Members of the Florence Fire Department used a hydraulic device commonly called the "Jaws of Life" to pry the roof away from Mills, OSP said.

Police said the four men were hit Monday night by a car whose driver said he didn't see them because he was blinded by the lights of the disabled car the men had left their vehicle to inspect. One person was knocked from the southbound lane of the Bronx River Parkway into the northbound lane' where he was hit a second time by another car, police said. 1 The four men left their car and went to the disabled car, only to find that it had been deserted by its occupants, said Officer Vincent Jones.

According to Young, however, the project can be financed without the aid of increased taxes through the use of available grants, revenue bonding and private development money. "The key is, it can be done without obligating the taxpayer," said Young. "We just have to make sure we do it that way." As part of its responsibilities, the interlocal agency to be formed between the port and the city council is to develop a financial package to fund the project, including acquiring grants and issuing revenue bonds to commercial enterprises, which would repay through rental agreements.

The land acquisition for the first of the five-phase project will cost an estimated $170,000, Young said. The project would not proceed without commitments from commercial developers and well-financed tenants for the facilities. 1 -CaJHB 145 GRAND open -Cow Scenic' 1 to Mexico car crash kills DEA official MEXICO "CITY (APf-'An 1 American secretary with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration was killed in a car crash in the western city of Guadalajara, the U.S. Embassy said.

An embassy official said Susan Hoefler, 33, was killed Saturday when she apparently lost control of her car near an exit ramp as she drove to the airport on the outskirts of Guadalajara, 360 miles west of Mexico City. She worked in the DEA's Guadalajara office. Police said the car hit a utility pole, the official said, speaking on condition of anonymity. The official said authorities have been asked to investigate the woman's death but that it appeared the crash was an accident. A DEA agent in Guadlajara, Victor Cortez was detained last Wednesday and allegedly tortured by Jalisco state police in an incident that prompted a sharp protest from the United States.

Mexican officials have acknowledged Cortez was detained but have denied allegations that he was mistreated.

The district, in a counter proposal outlined in February, called for a one-year contract with no across-the-board pay hike for teachers. The district also proposed elimination of early retirement benefits, a cap on insurance costs and other changes.

During earlier talks between the district and teachers, negotiators never reached the subject of possible pay hikes. No funds for a teacher base pay increase were included in the adopted school budget for the upcoming school year. The district proposed a number of other changes in the contract as well, which teachers complained amounted to dozens of rollbacks. Those proposed changes have the teachers bristling. Alice Jacobson, who just completed a term as president of the teachers' local union, said the district wants to change the way it handles evaluations, grievances and layoffs.

"It's security language. They want to take away what autonomy we have." While she conceded that little progress has been made so far, Jacobson said she is hopeful that things will change with the aid of a mediator. "Maybe we'll go in Thursday and find out they were just kidding," she said. The mediation session Thursday is open to the public, although both the school board and teachers generally close their doors for private caucuses. The session begins at 9 a.m.

Among other items, the council will discuss the creation of an urban renewal agency for the city and the recent notification of sewage plant violations by the Department of Environmental Quality. The DEQ fined the city $7,500 last week for yiolation of sewage disposal regulations and the council will dis- cuss the possibility of asking for a reduction of the fine as well as ways to clean up the Coquille Estuary, which has been contaminated by the illegal dumping of raw sewage-mixed sludge.

A hasty move to adjourn the meeting to shortstop further challenges to the decision was also defeated. Subsequent discussions among the squabbling Democrats resulted in a motion to send uncommitted delegates "favoring" but not bound to vote for Barbara Roberts should she announce her candidacy prior to Saturday. That motion was approved 19 to 10. Short later moved to "strongly consider Bill Bradbury" as a second choice should Roberts not be available.

That motion carried on a unanimous vote. Delegates to the State Central Committee caucus will include Short, Eymann and Jake Jacobson with alternates being Mitzi Loftus, Bert Long and Ruth Short. Coos County has approximately 17,000 registered Democrats or 3 percent of the state's total. Other candidates being considered for the Senate race include former Gov. Bob Straub; state Sens.

Ed Fadeley, Rod Monroe and John Kitzhaber; and state Rep. Rick Bauman. Retired Court of Appeals Justice Betty Roberts, whose name has been discussed, says she would not run. Bradbury's position is that he would run if drafted, according to the state senator. CHINA NIGHT Increases expected PORTLAND, Ore.

(AP) Enrollment in most of Oregon's public colleges and universities will continue to increase until the end of the decade, state officials say. The total number of students is expected to rise from a low of 57,196 two years ago to a projected high of 62,504 in 1989. The increase already is being felt at the University of Oregon in Eugene and Western Oregon State College near Monmouth. More than 17,500 students will fill the Eugene school to capacity next fall, despite tougher admission requirements. Dormitories are under construction at Western Oregon, where 3,550 students will be admitted, and 35 liberal arts course sections have been added.
