Lawrie $1,000 scholar- Town and artist battle oyer monument The Associated Press SUTHERLIN - A devout Catholic artist and the city council are drawing battle lines in the debate over a tall spire meant to honor Mother Teresa. Designer Dominic Gospodor calls it a memorial, but the city terms it a sign. The distinction could limit just how high the structure can reach. Gospodor's plans call for an 82-foot-tall pillar topped with two huge, softly glowing copper spheres plus a-J.2-foot statue. Not only does building such a structure require city permission, city zoning rules set a ceiling of 35 feet for such monuments. Now the city council is set-to decide Monday whether to ellow the 77-year-old retired businessman from Seattle to construct the monolith on a piece of industrial land he owns along Interstate 5. Ordinarily, someone putting up a spire or belfry or cupola on heavy-industrial land in Sutherlin wouldn't need the city's permission, notwithstanding a 35-foot maximum height for most structures in the zone, city planner Richard Schwartz said. ! But in this case, the structure that Gospodor wants to build consti- DEATH NOTICES Daniel William Slater ; Daniel William Slater of Corvallis died Saturday, Sept. 11, at the Mennonite Home in Albany.

"In our code, a sign is defined as something designed to attract attention, which this spire undoubtedly will do," he said. Schwartz recommended that the planning commission grant Gospodor an exception to the zoning laws so he can build his memorial to the East European-born Roman" Catholic nun who spent her adult life working with ill and poverty-stricken people in some of India's worst slums. But that's not what the planning commission did. The denied an ' exemption for the spire, perhaps in response to concerns raised by several people who live near the site. Gospodor said he finds the city's reaction to his proposal frustrating. They've issued variances for a lot of 'signs,' so why shouldn't they approve this one?" he said.

Still, Gospodor believes his spire would put Sutherlin on the map, attracting people who drive the 1-5 corridor into the town to take a closer look at his handiwork. Gospodor said ' he's already installed two similar copper domes on a church building in Anchorage and hopes to win approval to create another on a piece of property owned by the Roman Catholic Church next to Seattle's Space Needle. Tracy Ward, who lives near where Gospodor wants to build his spire, said he doesn't object to the idea of the memorial, or sign, or whatever anyone wants to call it. "My opposition is that the area around this proposal is residential on three sides, and this just isnt compatible, especially if it's an 'attraction,' " said Ward, a retired Sutherlin High School woodworking teacher.

"I had a feeling right then that I'd never see her again," said Beverly Burr, the girl's mother. Now, more than 38 years later, she and Donald Burr have scheduled a memorial Mass for their firstborn child next Saturday at St. Patrick's Catholic Church. Why did they wait? "Each and every year," said Donald Burr, 71, "something came up to make you look into the possibility (of finding Ann)." The nightmare began after the Burrs put their four children to bed Aug. 30, 1961. In the middle of the night, Ann Marie Burr brought a sister, Mary, 3, downstairs to their parents' room because the younger girl complained of itching from a cast in which her broken arm had been placed after a playground accident. "I told Ann that Mary would be all right," Beverly Burr recalled. "The cast would be off soon. Just CORVALLIS POLICE DEPT. Arrests Friday Antonio Cortez Perez. 27. of 325 N.W.

Tt Corvalll Clinic Pttyvtcferw ft Surgeon A totuxy of r-i irn- !; me about Ann Marie Burr," said crime writer Ann Rule of Des Moines, Wash. For the Burrs and some investigators, the leading suspect is the late serial killer Ted Bundy, who grew up in Tacoma and at one time lived in the same part of town as the family. He was 14 at the time. Bundy, who confessed to at least 35 other killings and is widely believed to have committed many more, repeatedly denied any involvement in the Burr case before he was executed in Florida on Jan. 24, 1989. For example, oh June 8, 1986, he wrote the Burrs, "I do not know what happened to your daughter Ann Marie. I had nothing to do with her disappearance. "You said she disappeared Aug. 31, 1961. At the time I was a normal 14-year-old boy. I did not wan-" der the streets late at night. I did not steal cars. I had absolutely no desire to harm anyone. I was just an average kid. For your sake, you really must understand this." The connection was first drawn by Rule, who worked with Bundy as a volunteer in a Seattle crisis clinic and later wrote a book about him, The Stranger Beside Me."

OR 97333 those currently for sale, and those which were offered but did not sell (the expired listings). Each plays a role in the final determination of price on the seller's home. Homes recently sold Carry the most weight, indicating the price buyers have already been willing to pay. Homes currently offered for sale are considered the competition, against which prospective buyers will be measuring value. Having not yet sold at their asking prices, they carry less weight in the final price determination. Homes on which the listing expired without a sale are a strong indicator of prices buyers are not willing to pay. Homes priced above the market are likely to languish without a sale. Those priced within the range established by an accurate market analysis are quick to attract serious buyers. Looking for help with your real estate needs?
