10 The SUN, Flagstaff, Arizona, Sunday, April 3, 1988 Legislators raise funds in 'off7 year PHOENIX (AP) - House majority whip Jane Hull raised more than $17,000 in campaign funds last year even though there was no election, and at least four other lawmakers raised more than $5,000 apiece, according to annual reports filed with the Secretary of States office on Friday. Some reports were not available as Fridays filing deadline passed, but officials said those postmarked Friday would be considered timely when they trickled in. Mrs. Hull, R-Phoenix, raised $17,219, largely from business executives and lobbyists. She also shared in $2,571 raised in conjunction with her two running mates. Legislative leaders often try to raise more than they need for their own races so they can help other members of their party, and the prospect of money at campaign time can make a tough vote go down easier. With Republican House Speaker Joe Lane facing a tough election in a stormy district and Majority Leader Jim Ratliff seriously ill, Mrs. Hull may also hope full coffers will help her forge the alliances that would let her move up the ladder after this falls elections. Several other potential House leaders also have been amassing war chests, however. Chairman Chris Herstam of the tax-writing Ways and Means Committee raised $10,650, for example, and Rep. Gary Giordano of New River, a leader of the House GOPs conservative faction, raised $8,420. Reports were unavailable Friday on Rep. Jack Jewett, another lawmaker touted as a possible leader, but a fellow Tucson Republican, Education Committee Chairman Jim Green, raised almost $5,700. Freshman Bobby Raymond of Phoenix led the Democrats whose reports were available. He garnered more than $10,500 last year, much of it from union activists, but still faced red ink because he had begun the year with a deficit of more than $14,600 from his 1986 campaign. Phoenix Republican Tony West, who chairs the Senates Insurance, Retirement and Aging Committee, raised relatively little last year but appeared to have the fattest cushion heading into the 1988 elections $39,567 thanks to a surplus from the year before. Rep. John King, R-Phoenix, had a $21,408 cushion, while Rep. Larry Hawke, R-Tucson, had $15,132, Lane had $13,484 and Ratliff had $11,000. Rep. Heinz Hink, R-Scottsdale, had $10,033 and running mate Jim Skelly had $10,025. Political Action Committees filing early included one affiliated with the Phelps Dodge copper company. Arizona socialite found dead Foul play suspected s i i JEANNE GUNTHER TOVREA 4 PHOENIX (AP) - The widow of an Arizona cattle baron was found slain in her hillside home in an exclusive residential area of Phoenix, police said. Jeanne Gunther Tovrea, the widow of Edward Tovrea, was believed to have been shot after surprising a burglar Friday, homicide detectives said. Police were dispatched to the home shortly before 1 a.m. Friday after an alarm company monitoring the home notified police that a burglary was in progress, according to police spokesman officer Andy Hill. When officers arrived at the home, they found evidence of forced entry and discovered the body while searching the home, Hill said. Officers on foot assisted by police dogs and a department helicopter searched the rugged area dotted with million-dollar homes but Hill said they found no suspects. Police speculated the killer might have slipped past the residential developments 24-hour guard house and reached the home on foot, then possibly escaped by hiking over the hills. Mrs. Tovrea, 55, had been a widow for five years. Her husband, before his death in 1983, was vice president of T and C Cattle Co., a feeding and breeding operation. State Nuke plant has Its problems PHOENIX (AP) The Nuclear Regulatory Commission has told the operators of the Palo Verde Nuclear Generating Station that workers at the atomic power plant are committing too many errors and senior managers are not devoting enough time to observing activities at Unit 2. The comments were contained in a letter from the NRC to the Arizona Nuclear Power Project, which operates the plant for its owners, a consor-, tium of utility companies including Arizona Public Service Co. The NRC also said control room personnel have become so accustomed to false alarms ringing that they do not consistently respond to Indications of , real equipment failure. The letter summarizes what federal regulators observed on a recent tour . of the plant. In their letter March 18, federal regulators warned that procedural checks and reviews by troubleshooters are failing to detect equipment problems at Palo Verde. Gift of political asylum backfires PHOENIX (AP) A 29-year-old Ethiopian, granted political asylum in the United States in 1984, has been sentenced to 20 years In prison for the murder of his landlady. Teshome Abate was sentenced in Maricopa County Superior Court Friday for the May 17 second-degree murder of Catherine McIntosh, 35. Abate had rented a room in McIntoshs Gilbert home for less than a month before the murder. Abate pleaded guilty Sept. 25 to second-degree murder, after being charged with first-degree murder. Abate was on probation at the time of the murder, after being convicted in Phoenix City Court for assaulting a woman in August 1986. Agents descramble cable plot MIAMI (AP) Nearly $4 million worth of cable television descramblers was seized as the devices were being illegally exported to the Bahamas and Latin America, U.S. Customs Service agents said Friday. The 9,000 descramblers were seized Thursday from raids in Tempe; El Paso, Texas; and Englewood, Colo., after a four-week investigation of controlled electronics. The VideoCipher II descramblers are used to clear up electronically scrambled cable and satellite signals for television reception. Pay television networks such as Showtime and HBO scramble signals to prevent transmission theft. Mofford answers queries behind own closed doors PHOENIX (AP) - Acting Gov. Rose Mofford, testifying behind closed doors at her request, told lawyers Friday that she has had nothing to do with the Draft Mofford committee that petitioned to place her name on the gubernatorial recall election ballot. The session was cut short when the mother of one of the lawyers was hospitalized with an apparent heart attack, but the remaining lawyers disagreed as to whether it should be continued later. Attorney Mike Rikkola, who represents Democratic Party activist Mike Morgan in a civil suit that seeks to remove Mrs. Mofford from the ballot, claims the draft committee did not follow election laws because it did not file proper campaign finance reports and because candidates must file personal financial disclosure statements before they can be placed on the ballot. But the committee says Mrs. Mofford, who was elected to a four-year term as secretary of state in 1986 and became acting governor upon Evan Mechams impeachment, cannot not file a statement because it might put her afoul of a law that requires officeholders who want to run for another post to either resign or be in the final year of their current term. Mofford chief of staff Andy Hurwitz, an attorney, said Riikola asked her repeatedly if she was involved with the draft movement. Shes not, and every time he asked her specific questions about it, she told him that she wasnt, he said. Reporters were barred from attending the session by Mofford press secretary Athia Hardt. Ms. Hardt initially said she did not want reporters at the deposition because she feared it would turn the session into a three-ring circus. But asked if she would accept a pool arrangement under which only one or two reporters would attend and then share notes with their colleagues, Hardt said that too was unacceptable. amsDmm JIH 2 Locations to Better Serve You: East by the Mall 3900 E.
