Lester THE UKIAH DAILY JOURNAL -THURSDAY, JUNE 26, 1997—" Meals Continued from Page I that he had read in the paper about the previous 8-4 deadlock and said: 'It's time we convicted this guy.'" At least one juror clearly misunderstood Petersen's instruction to the jury regarding circumstantial evidence, Vroman said. Another reportedly told attorneys: "It's a good thing (Massini) didn't ask for the death penalty or we'd never have been able to vote to convict (Lester)." Massini has indicated she may seek to try Lester a third time for the decade-old slaying of the Billy Grondalski family. Massini is at a San Diego conference today. Deputy District Attorney David Basner will be in court at 1 p.m. this afternoon to convey Massini's wishes to Petersen. "A third trial is a possibility," Vroman said. The lone holdout on the jury was a woman, the daughter of a retired Los Angeles Superior Court Judge. The woman, Vroman said, had found the testimony of the state's key witnesses, Charles Haas and Michael Tankersley, riddled with inconsistencies. While admitting that Lester might be guilty, she felt the state had failed to prove its case. Grondalski, his wife, and the couple's two children were shot to death in October 1986 at the family's rented farmhouse on the Fort Bragg outskirts. Massini had asked the jury to find Lester guilty of second- degree murder in Grondalski's killing and asked for a verdict of first-degree murder in the killings of Grondalski's wife, Patricia, teen-ager Nolan Vande- graff and 5-year-old Dallas Grondalski. If convicted, Lester would have been spared the death penalty, but could have been sentenced to life imprisonment. Massini did not introduce any new evidence in the case, Vroman said. FBI searches for armored car driver, missing millions Associated Press STROUD, Okla. — An armored car guard returned from a fast-food restaurant to find his partner gone, as much as $3 million missing and a postcard hanging from the rearview mirror. 'Is Paris this nice this time of year? Oui. Bye," read the handwritten note. FBI agents said between $2 million and $3 million was taken Wednesday morning from the Loomis Armored car. Bobby O'Neal Negri was charged in a warrant with bank robbery and became the subject of a nationwide search. Despite the taunting note, investigators do not believe Negri left the country. The more likely destination was a metropolitan area. Continued from Page I in addition to the free meals Plowshares now serves at its Luce Avenue dining room. Plowshares says it contacted the Senior Center to see if the board of directors would allow it to use the center's dining room to serve lunches because it is an excellent facility, and provides an atmosphere of fellowship and social activities for seniors. But Tuesday the Senior Center board met and decided to not open up its dining room to Plowshares. However, the meals situation was to be discussed this morning at another special board meeting. "I still think it's up in the air," said board member Helen Smith. But with the funding from AAA gone, Smith said she and one other member of the 12-person board are in favor of turning over meal preparation and service to Plowshares. "It would get rid of the expense of hiring cooks," Smith said, "and the expense of buying food." Meanwhile, the Senior Center is planning to continue to serve lunches at the Senior Center after July 1, charging $3 for lunch and $5 per meal for a home-delivered meal program called Meals To Go. Smith doesn't know how many seniors will be willing to pay for lunches if they can eat for free or give a donation to Plowshares for the lunches it supplies. "It will be hard to make it without AAA funding," she said of the Senior Center's lunch program. "The first two weeks in July will tell the tale," she said. If the center loses its patrons, Smith hopes it will contact Plowshares and work something out. Plowshares plans to cook all the meals at its Luce Avenue kitchen and transport about 40 lunches a day to the Episcopal Church on Orchard Avenue, said Brodsky. The Mendocino Transit Authority has offered to put benches out by the church and create a stop there along an already established bus route, she said. While Plowshares now server about 100 meals a day, that rrarrt- ber will increase to 200 or more when it begins providing meals to seniors. It has asked the cdm-. munity for help in gathering the, needed supplies to make all tflfc meals. ", The Ukiah Valley Medica'f Center will probably be able 't6 donate to Plowshares some of the cooking utensils and supplied it has acquired from the purchaSfe of the old Sizzler restaurant oft Perkins Street, said hospital. President Val Devitt. UVMC wi ty be using the former restaurarit y location for an outpatient physj; t cal therapy office. , '\ While Devitt just received a^ letter from Plowshares outlining^ the equipment it is looking for; he said "by the first of next weeR^ or by Friday, we should have a* better idea of how we can help.": Some of the equipment cur/- rently used by the Senior Center' is also expected to be transferred to Plowshares, but Brodsky ha"$' yet to receive that list from AAA 1 .' 453-97 6-26, 7-3,10,17/97 NOTICE OF HEARING ON PETITION TO TERMINATE PARENTAL RIGHTS OF ALLEGED FATHER TO: JEFF KUHN, ALLEGED FATHER FOR THE CHILD BORN ON APRIL 23, 1995, TO TERI MILLS: °LEASE TAKE NOTICE that on September 17, 1997, at 1:30 p.m. in the Superior Court of Sonoma County, sitting as a Juvenile Court, located at Los Guilucos, 133 Pythian Road North, Santa Rosa, California, a 366.26 Hearing will be held on the Petition of the StfnVJhia 'County' Human • Servldes Department to terminate the parental rights of Jeff Kunn, alleged father of the child bom on April 23, 1995 to Teri Mills.
