How St. Mary's began (Cont'd from Pagel) St. Mary's, enrolls an ecumenical student body with 189 Catholic students and 31 students of other faiths. "And we hiive ^ faculty who enjoy their teaching and help make this school run," says Sr. Francis Clare, "We have Sr. Lisa Apn teaching first grade, Diana Ballestra teaching second grade and Dfeloris Williamson with • the third graders. Barb Kessler teaches fourth, and Sr. Mary Damian fifth. Sixth graders are taught by Glen Bowers, Sister Mary teaches seyenth and the eight graders are taught by Jim Hons. W? also have Lodie Deitz as a title I teacher and Don Williamson who keeps our school waxed, polished and shined. Sister Jane coordinates the religious education program for St. Mary's School." With a faculty like this. running St. Mary's, school is both pleasurable and rewarding, "And there's something else that keeps this school running," she says, "that's the annual Mardi Gras." Mardi GrJas is in it's ninth year of raising funds for St. Mary's school. Operating on a deficit budget, St. Mary's school needs additional money each year to keep its school doors open. Tuition and church meet only 60 percent of the school's operating expenses. In 1969, a steering committee decided to ask the community for support with a "Fun for Funds" idea. Since then, Mardi Gras night and Sunday's carnival have become a community event and the major source of the extra money St. Mary's school needs to help meet ' its operating budget. Crushed body identified as Robert Nead The body of the man found crushed under the rear of a pickup truck near Usal Creek in northern Mendocino county was identified early Satruday. Robert Nead, III, 29, was identified by the sheriff's office and listed^ only'^s a resident of Whitethorn. He was found Wednesday when a report was made from Eureka highway patrol office that a body wa:^ in a sleeping bag, with the tires and wheels off the pickup truck and the rear axle of the truck crushed on the man's skull. ' Mendocino County sheriff's office declined to name the incident a homocide or accident pending,the completion of a coroner's investigation. Estimated time of death was placed between Jan. 22 and 25, according to the sheriff's office report. hNonda^ Htes for long-fime Coveloan Funeral services will be held at 2 p.m. Monday at the Presbyterian Church in Covelo for Rose E.

Passage of the ordinance came after ten months of planning with an ad-hoc committee composed of representatives of the county, agriculture and gravel extraction businessmen. The ordinance, which is a compromise plan worked out by the committee, calls for the regulation of use permits issued for gravel extraction as well as plans from mine and gravel extraction operators for land restoration. Also required under the new ordinance will be the surveying and mapping out of all creek bqttoms by the county in preparation of a creek management plan, to be completed within two years. The action was seen by the supervisors as very necessary in light of thegontroversy surrounding gravel extraction ' in Lake County during the pasi two years. Fanners have charged that gravel extraction from Kelsey Creek, as well as other areas, has lowered the underground water table with the result that less water has been available for agricultural irrigation during the drought. On the other hand, gravel and mining operators have charged that the county has unfairly been restricting their rights in earning a legitimate living by denying use permits for operation expansions without a defined county plan. The planning commission recently denied an extension of time to the use permit of Lange Brothers Construction for graVel extracjion. An appeal by Lange Brothers to ' the board of supervisors, was denied last week. Sole opposition to the ordinance came from Supervisor Bob Jones, who felt that the ordinance was going too far in restricting operations. He sfdd he favored a "bare bones" ordinance which didn't get carried away with too Discarded fires pose fern probli Additional information- about the large number of rubber tires piling iq> on the coast without a dump site has been provided by the department of public works. . In recommendations submitted to the board ,of supervisors the department proposes that the county accept large quantities of tires at Caspar and stockpile them on-site until an economical use for them is developed. Becaused of an agreement negotiated by the city of Fori Bragg with the county that specrfically excludes acceptance of large quantities of tires for dumping, the number (rf tires that need to be disposed of is growing. Due to wet weather conditions, the county has been unable to proceed with building a stockpiling site near the Caspar dump. The proposal is still under consideration by the board of supervisors. A proposed fee schedule for dumping the tires was proposed by the department in hiany regulations. The county was required to adopt a mining ordinance by the state undefr the Surface Reclamation and Mining Act, ' passed in 1975. The board of supervisors emerged from its executive session Monday afternoon with the announcement that the San Francisco firm of Bronson, Bronson and McKinhon will be defending the ten past and present' supervisors being sued oyer a' salary dispute by the Taxpayers Association of Lake County (TALC). The firm, which has a b-anch office in Lakeport run by partner Ed Broiison, will defend all ten individuals named in the suit unless someone decides to hire a personal attorney. TTie County of Lake and its former in- smrance company, Fireman's Insurance, are also named as defendants. Legal fees will be paid by the county since the a rten were acting in their off ficial capacity during the times mentioned in the suit. County Counsel Charles Haughton had apparently been advised by the State Attorney General's office that the hiring of an outside legal firm was the proper course. The civil suit filed by TALC last week charges that the supervisors illegally collected pay raises totalling $49,428 since 1973. It was at this time that the first of three pay raises was adopted by the board .by resolution. Last^ summer TALC discovered that pay raises must be passed by ordinance under the civil code and the state constitution. TALC is also asking in the suit that an additional $9,586 be collected from the defendants for their use of county money, along with $85,374 in actual and punitive damages. A. Lee Sanders of Redwood City, attorney for TALC in the suit, said the actiojn was to be an example for public officials who mi^t wish to get away with illegalities which niight benefit them. Immediate response from the present supervisors was in the form of a press release that same day, stating that the action adopting the pay raises by resolution rather than by ordinance was an unfortunate 'oversight passed on the advice of legal ' counsel, but nonetheless done "in gooci faith in pubhc." The supervisors also called the suit a "vindictive campaign" on the part of certain individuals.

Did not meet. Assemblyman Barry Keens has introduced a package of bills to complete four long- delayed links in the Redwood Highway, the main traffic artery running from the Golden Gate Bridge to Oregon. "The Redwood Highway, U.S. 101 and U.S. 199, has four major bottlenecks," said Keene. "It runs down city streets through the middle of Ooverdale and Eureka, and down narrow winding roads disturbing jedediah Smith Redwood State Park and Richardson Grove. "It's more than just inconvenient. It's a killer — for the people of the area, and for motorists who drive the Redwood Highway," Keene said. The Brown administration, Keene reported, has turned down the North Coast assemblyman's appeal for, support for the bills. "With administration opposition, these bills have only the very slimmest of chances of passage, if they h^e that," Keene said. "However, the public debate over these much- ' needed highway projects already has done some good, and' I intend to continue to press for them," the assemblyman stated. Keene in September told Gov. Brown he was "flabbergasted that the administration's latest six-year plan again ignores the critical needs of the noi-thern California coast." "Your administration, ' for some obscure or occult reason, again has failed to make any plans to complete the highway system in an area that has virtually no alternative means of transportation, for individuals and for commerce," Keehe told Brown in a letter in September. Keene in the same letter announced his plans to introduce the four bills which he actually introdiiced today, and appealed for the Governor's support. The CaUfornia Highway Commission later modified the administration's six-year highway program. It put the Eureka freeway and the' Cloverdale bypass on a list of projects "that should be given high priority consideration for the period immediately following the six-year period." "This at' least recognizes that these are important projects, but it puts, their co'pstruction too far in the future,," Keene said today. These four bills introduced today would require the California Transportation Department to start building these four-lane freeways in fiscal 1978-79:. .. — AB 2305, the Cloverdale bypass in Sonoma County. — AB 2306, the Richard Grove bypass in Humboldt County just north of Mendocino County. — AB 2307, the Eureka freeway in Humboldt County — AB 2308, the Jed Smith bypass in Del Norte County. All four bills are coauthored by Senator Peter Behr.
