DEAN McCLUSKY, an Emeritus Professor of Education from UCLA, with a Nice mailing address and a residence in Precinct I Of Upper Lake; McClusky has been a resident of the Upper Lake first precinct since 1959, and it is his belief that his long experience as an educator, with over 40 years as an administrator and teacher, and more than 18 years of community 'service in .Lake County, would enable him to be of service to Mendocino, College. He served as Lake County Chamber of Commerce president two years, and as chairman of the Lake County OEDP committee, charged with developing Lake County's Overall Economic Development Plan in 1967. EUGENE J.M. (GUIN- NESSJ MCFAbDEN, Potter Valley: McFadden states that his reasons for wanting to, serve on the board revolve around a strong desire to' see the community develop, and maintain a sound, useful college program, based upon Miss Lillian on Flynt centerfold? PLAINS, Ga. (UPI) - Local residents expressed cautious optimism today over Hustler magazine owner Larry Flynt's purchase of President Carter's hometown newspaper — despite his promise to print a centerfold of "Miss Lillian in white with a black man as Jesus." Flynt bought the Plains Monitor Thursday from Sam Simpson, a Barnesville grocer who launched it a year ago, for an undisclosed sum. Simpson said he would stay on as editor. Flynt, who claimed recently to have become a born-again Christian under the ministration of the president's evangelist sister, Ruth Carter ' Stapleton, said in a statement ; issued in Columbus, Ohio, "I • won't have to botfier Ruth : when I want to send Jimmy a ' message." : "I'm not going to prejudge • the paper until I see it," said ; state Sen. Hugh Carter, the :president's cousin. "I don't ; know anything about JWr. • larry Flynt, but I luiow that if it isn't a clean, upstanding • paper it won't survive in • Plains. But if Sam's still going ;to run it, I feel it'll be OK." Gieorge Harper, deacon of : the Plains Baptist €hurch, " where the president attended l&inday schoql on Christmas, said Flynt's "exploitation of filth is against church principles. "I don't know why he wants" the Monitor, Harper said. "He wouldn't get to first base" trying to open a Hustler-like publication in Plains. "There must be some other motive behind it." But Harper concluded, "I'm not worried about it." Flynt's statement said Simpson approached him at the behest of the president's son, Chip, but both Simpson ahd the White House denied that. The statement said Flynt planned few editorial changes in the Monitor, whose circulation has fluctuated wildly between 2,000 and 17,000 weekly. ,;i The statement had Flynt replying to a question as to whether the Monitor would resemble Hustler by saying, "Just a centerfold. I hope Miss Lillian will be the first ;.. We will dress Miss Lillian in white, and j^ose her with a black man as Jesus." Simpson called Flynt, a ''genius." "This man seems to be a very sincere businessman, and he's the type of person that . appreciates a small community newspaper like this," Simpson said.. the highest staindards of academic and vocational excellence, community service achievement, and a responsible guardianship of public funds and trust. He feels,he can contribute toward these goals. DONALD E. TODD, Potter Valley: has actively been involved in agriculture and real estate operation and management. His experience in those areas covers a period of about 30 years. He has been involved in many civic activities, including serving as chairman of the Mendocino County Farm Bureau. In the field of education, Todd has been active in Mendocino County for about 17 years, during which time he has served on four different school boards. He was in- trumental in formation of the Potter. Valley Community High School. Because of his interest and experience in the field of education, he feels well qualified to serve on the college board. JOHN. H. TOMKINS, Lucerne: also resides in Upper Lake First Precinct, moving there in 1974. He terms himself an "enthusiastic supporter" of the (statewide) community college concept and feels Mendocino College presents greatly expanded opportunities for career advancement and personal development of its students. He-feels the alternatives the college offers to students in the Upper Lake arep are a special source of satisfaction. Tomkins is presently associated with the college as a member of the Business Education Citizens' Advisory Con\mittee, and is an instructor for a course in personal income tax procedures. He has a varied background and feels his points of view may be an asset to the district. WILLIAM WHEELER; Redwood, Valley: is a local real estate broker and has been involved in subdivision and development of land. He also has had some experience dealing with contractors in construction of homes. He attended a very comprehensive seminar at University of California, Berkeley, in the summer of 1977, dealing exclusively with the latest technology, costs and construction of solar heating and cooling. • A seventh person applied for consideration by the board of trustees which will appoint a person to fill the Easterbrook vacancy within the next few weeks. But Edwin S. Ryon II, lives in the Clear Lake Riviera area, which is not in Trustee Area 5 of the ^ollege district.

Some were 4,000 families sorved last year Second helping of free milk stopped WASHINGTON (UPI) — The Agriculture Department, responding to concern in Congress that free milk has been wasted, will cut off free second helpings at mealtimes to an estimated 1.4 million needy children to save about $25 million a year. Assistant Agriculture Secretary Carol Foreman said Thursday the Feb. 1 cutoff will affect second helpings served with school breakfasts and lunches, as well as all meals served in child centers under a child-care food program. Ms. Foreman said the Agricultijre Department took the action because of a law enacted by Congress that "expressed the concern of the Congress that some of the free milk has been wasted." The action will . eliminate donation of 250 million half- pints annually. Needy children receiving free meals will continue to get a single free half-pint of milk, which is served as part of the meal, Ms. Foreman said. Children now , can get a second free half-pint, part of a separate program — a $155 milHon "special milk program." Only the second half-pint will be'canceled, the official said. Regulations will continue to in-ovide a free half-pint to any needy children who bring bag lunches from home instead of eating the free school meal to which they are entitled. Schools will have to continue giving half-pints free to needy children in programs where the milk program is operated outside lunch hours, Ms. Foreman said. Children wanting a second half-pint of milk will be able to buy it at subsidized prices, she said. The county's social service department, had 22,940 inquiries, made 8,591 contacts and served some 4,000 families in ,1977. The statistics were pven in a report Tuesday from Social Services, Director Dennis • Denny to the board of supervisors that wrapped up laSt year's activities and discussed plans for 1978. The report is required by the federal government's Title 20 program, under which federal welfare funds are distributed. Denny was careful to define the figures. Inquiries meant the number of times people contacted the department in person for information and referral, he said, and contacts were actual services provided, such as getting on food stamps. One person often had several contacts, he noted. That figure will rise to 10,000 thig year, according to the plan.. Two services will be phased out of -the social services department this year: family S anning and legal services, je health department will be taking over the former, and the legal services agency will handle all of the' latter, he said. The director noted that while, an estimated 5,000 people need family planning services in the county, only 19 were served by social services last year, with the health department handling the bulk of requests. Similarly, the department estimiated there were 1,058 persons in need of legal services while only 30 were served by social services. In 1978 there will be a new emphasis on employment and training, Denny said. This departmental shift came as a result of his talks with the county supervisors' health and welfare committee. He said the shift could be seen in the projections for 1978. Employment related services are set to increase from 53 persons served in W7 to 75 in J978. Education and training. services will rise from 104 to 120. ^ The director was questioned about these figures by supervisors who noted there were thousandsof unemployed people in the county. "The emphasis is on quality not quantity," Denny told them. "We want, to be effective and we can't be if We rush through too many people." Supervisor Ted Galletti questioned Denny about the projected figure of 10,000 contacts this year. "With the social service programs increasing, and more federal dollars coming in, shouldn't there be some effect? Shouldn't you be seeing less people, not more?" Galletti asked. "People always ask, they are always checking into areas where they might get help." Denny replied. He added that the couiity' was growing rapidly and many of the new people were young and transient, the type that put a heavy demand on social services. ' ' Supervisor John Cimolino said Jiiendocino was a "target county" for many young persons on welfare because of the attractive environment. Supervisor Ernie Banker addeid that this problem began several years ago when the residency requirement for welfare recipients was dropped. "This is putting an undue liardship on rural counties like ours because we don't have the tax base of the larger areas," he said.
