RUTLAND DAILY HERALD. FRIDAY MORNING, APRIL 2, 1982 4 Obituaries Vermont Times Whittaker Says Change in Law Just Awful Vermont Press Bureau MONTPELIER Environmental Conservation Secretary Brendan J. Whittaker Thursday said a proposed change in state water resources law up for consideration by the state Senate would be just This change would strip the state of jurisdiction it's had for years over some of the most critical and important lands in the state of Vermont, Whittaker said." If this passes, its the same as stripping Act 250 (the basic Vermont development-control law) of several major provisions. At stake is Vermont's jurisdiction over barely-submerged shoreline properties. The state Water Resources Board now allows construction in such areas via a carefully controlled permit process.

Shoreline lands are viewed as environmentally important since they serve as breeding and feeding territory for birds, fish, and many other forms of wildlife. The provision before the Senate Friday would allow the state's jurisdiction to extend only to the low water mark of every lake and pond in Vermont. Present law allows that jurisdiction to extend further inland, to the mean water-level mark. The proposed change is part of a thick bundle of housekeeping changes in state water resources law. It was first made hastily on the floor of the House, was corrected in the Senate Energy Natural Resources, and was re-inserted by the Senate Agriculture Committee.

"It would allow structures and seawalls, camps, and everything to be built in that area with no controls. It would be just awful, Whittaker declared. It has nothing to do with posting or ownership of land dr anything like that. It has to do with whether the state will have anything to say on that very critical lake-margin areathat's actually underwater. Water Resources Commissioner John Ponsetto opposed the change Wednesday.

The Senate is scheduled to consdier the change Friday morning. brother, Albert Watts of Barnard; a stepsister, Mrs. Merton (Rachel) Thompson of West Woodstock and Florida; seven grandchildren and two greatgrandchildren.

Injuries to Brain Killed Morgan Girl NEWPORT (UPI) A pregnant 15-year-old Morgan schoolgirl died last May of brain injuries after being struck in the head 14 times, the states Chief Medical Examiner told a Superior Court jury Thursday. Dr. Eleanor McQuillen, who took the witness stand in the fourth day of the first degree murder trial of Wade Willis, 16, said four of the blows were severe enough to cause death. Willis is accused in the springtime killing of Terri Weed, who prosecutors say was beaten to death with a baseball bat and shovel. He is alleged to have killed Miss Weed his girlfriend and neighbor because he thought she was pregnant with his child.

Mrs. McQuillen said that during an autopsy on the victim, a "well-formed male fetus was extracted from Miss Weeds womb. She said the schoolgirl was about 4W months pregnant at the time of her death. During an afternoon of grisly testimony, the jury was shown slides of the various wounds to Miss Weeds head. Willis was not in the courtroom during the display, marking the first time since the trial began on Monday that he was not present with his lawyer.

Defense lawyer Duncan Kilmartln has said he will show that Willis was an emotionally disturbed youth driven to Armed Robbery In Underhill If you need or wish to make deposits, you may do so with our 24 HOUR TELLER CARD at any one of our convenient locations A Free Service To Church-School Accord Vermont Pres Bureau MONTPELIER The Vermont House has accepted a conference committee report that paves the way to implementation of a law that requires fundamentalist religious schools to report to the state. The House and the Senate passed different versions of the measure earlier in this biennium, and as a result a committee with members from both chambers was appointed to hammer out the differences. The conference committe report is much the same as the version of the measure passed by the House, and the House Wednesday agreed to accept the committee report. The Senate version of the bill would have allowed onsite inspections of the schools, but the Senate members of the conference committee agreed with the House to strip that authority from the bill. The Senate has yet to take action on the conference committee report.
