: - 2 Galesbura Reaister^Moil, taolesbufQ, Saturday, Aug, 4, 1973 I County Zoning Appeals Board Approves | New Sanitary Landfill Site Near Wataga WW ,|,«!„ IBM wo w m law US WW atif MU ft* iw- ** #1 I By NORMA CUNNINGHAM (Staff Writer) The Knox County Zoning Board of Appeals Friday afternoon approved the county's plan to establish a flew sanitary landfill near Wataga. However, the zoning beard sett several conditions, including a requirement that the county operate die facility it" self. The project wilt also be "on probation" for two years. FLOYD GUSTAFSON, a zoning board member, moved to grant the conditional use permit to establish (the landfill on land, now owned by Floyd Grant, about a mile east of Wataga. v The county May 12 took a 6-month option on the 220 acres. Total price of the land would be $132,000 if the county exercises the option. "You couldn't have paid me to make that motion the other day, but after seeing two sue* cessful operations, I believe it can be done," Gustafsoni commented. Zoning board members earlier Friday toured the Whiteside County landfill at Morrison and the Scott County operation at Davenport. Both were successful, beard members said. J. Ross Baird, another zon* ing board member, said the operations the committee saw yesterday showed "there is' nothing complicated about running a good landfill — it just takes good management." BOARD MEMBERS said making the county totally responsible for operating the new landfill would provide better management. Balph Hawthorne, zoning board chairman, commented, "The county is pretty exacting, and ithey know what they're up against." The conditions set by the zoning board would make the county highway superintendent responsible for the landfill, and stipulates the county may not subcontract to any private operator. Zoning board members said probation period will run from the first day of operations. Another stipulation is that only the trench method may be used during the 2-year probationary period. The trench method requires digging a pit for refuse as opposed to the area method, which would allow dumping into a draw or ravine and then covering the Wflstc THE ZONING BOARD also decided to require the landfill operators to set aside 4-6 feet of top material to be returned after the land is filled. The site also must be restored to its original topography after land filling. Robert Masterson, county zoning administrator, said the probationary period would give the county a chance to prove its case. "If it doesn't, this board can rule in favor of the village (Wataga residents have sought, to block the project) at the end of the probationary period," he said. Masterson said that the board set the conditions out of consideration for village residents. "Some of the concerns expressed by residents were premature and some were psychological, but the board has set conditions which it believes will make for a good operation and allay those fears," Masterson said. OTHER CONDITIONS set by the zoning board include : — No open burning. — The county shall be responsible for the improvement and maintenance of all access roads, including litter control. — The site must be properly fenced and screened to retard any wind-blown material. — All refuse must be covered each day. — The site must meet all state Environmental Protection Agency requirements, and any uncorrected citation will automatically terminate the operation of the site. The zoning board's approval is the second hurdle successfully overcome by the Knox County Board's Sanitary Landfill Committee to establish the site. THE FIRST was the dismissal of a law suit, filed by village residents, seeking to block use of the site. Next step is approval of the site by the EPA. Landfill officials have said they would like to have the new site in operation by late fall, since the old site three. miles south of the city is nearly filled. Controversial Bike Ordinance Up for Council's Okay A controversial bicycle ordinance proposed for Galesburg will be on final reading at Monday night's City Council meeting. The session is scheduled to start at 7:30 p.m. in City Hall. Two aldermen objected to parts of the ordinance at the last formal council session. Aid. Curtis Erickson, Second Ward, said bicycles should not be impounded for violations of safety rules. Aid. Carroll Wilson, Seventh Ward, said he would not like to charge children a fee to register bicycles, and that such a registration and licensing should not be mandatory. Violations of the current city ordinance — it deals only with traffic operating rules — may result in fines from $1 to $10 or bicycles may be impounded for 30 days or less. The proposed ordinance would give first offenders warning tickets; second offenders could have their bicycles impounded; third offenders would be subject to $2 fines and 60-day impoundment; four offenders/ $2 fines and impoundment for 90 days; and fifth offenders would face revocation of their regis-r tration for one year. Registration is not required at present. City Manager Thomas Herring contends registration would help authorities locate stolen or lost bicycles. An ordinance to annex the Club 19 restaurant property on North Henderson Street also will be on final reading Monday night. The owner, Charles Calderone, asked that action be delayed at the last council session. Calderone today indicated he is no longer opposed to annexation. At first he expressed fear that some of his property would be condemned for future use as part of Carl Sandburg Drive as a result of the annexation. Herring said annexation and the city's possible acquisition of the property are separate matters. The levy ordinance for fiscal year 1973-74 is scheduled for first reading. The ordinance designates the amount of money the city wants to raise from taxes. The tax money pays for city operations outlined in the annual appropriations ordinance. The parking fund audit for fiscal 1972-73 will be presented to the aldermen. The audit shows $148,815 was collected from parking meters last year. In 1971-72, a total of $148,994 was collected. The annual vehicle tax report also will be given to the council. A total of $89,247 was collected last year from city vehicle taxes. The year before, $86,675 was collected. Other ordinances on final reading include an amendment to the traffic ordinance to remove parking on the west side of Michigan Avenue between See'City'- (Continued on Page 5) mat Expert Misses Top Barrow In Fair's Carcass Contest By WILLIAM CAMPBELL (Staff Writer) Even an expert can be wrong. Dr. Harlan Richie, a Michigan State University professor ind noted livestock judge, blew i. The 218-pound barrow he picked Tuesday as best on the hx>f at the Knox County Fair i ame in 20th when a second judge evaluated the carcasses ifter they had been slaughtered. "Its sort of been going that nay all year at the fairs," a veteran livestock exhibitor commented Friday. "It's a tough job — judging them before they're slaughtered." Another livestock raiser was less sympathetic. "I've been raising pigs for 30 years and he's a classroom expert. I'm a better judge than he is. Any of these boys out here that have been raising livestock for 20 years or more would be," he said wryly. "It's embarrassing, all right," livestock show director Dean Simpkins agreed Friday night. "I'm disappointed, to say the least. But the proof of the pudding is when they're hanging on that rail." Dr. Glenn Schmidt, University of Illinois meat scientist, Thursday picked a 215-pound barrow owned by Claire Pot- torf, Rio, as the best barrow of the original 42 entries. Richie had placed Pottorf's barrow fourth, and commented during the live judging that "you might find this pig is fuljl of red meat. He might be number one.": Richie had placed an entry owned by David Cox, Wyoming, in the top spot Tuesday. Cox' barrow, however, came in behind 19 others during on the rail judging Thursday by Schmidt.

Adlai Stevenson, HI, D-Ill., urged President Nixon Friday to re lease evidence to the special Senate coramaittee investigating the Watergate affair. Stevenson said Nixon "has broken the promise he made when the- Senate was holding hearings on the conlirmation of BUiot Rijchandson as attorney general. The President assured us that (special Watergate prosecutor Archibald) Cox would have, and quote, 'full access to all documentary evidence from any source.' " "I can't see an end to the Watergate investigation," Stevenson said, 'land I'm afraid we are heading toward the two J worst possible alternatives — i either doing nothing and con-! fess to the bankruptcy of our political system or start impeachment proceedings. "What we need to avoid this," Stevenson sadd, "is for the 'truth to come out as soon as possible." Stevenson also talked about food shortages during his news conference at O'Hare Interna-} tional Airport. ; He said he thought the ad-; ministration should have anti-! cipated the possibility of shortages and said he agreed with AFL - CIO President George Meany that an economic recession is likely in the near future. On another subject, Stevenson said he had asked the transportation center at Northwestern University in Evanston to study the proposed Crosstown Expressway that would run through Chicago. i He said he will support the center's findings because, he said, "no prudent layman" can determine '(the "advisability of the expressway" without study. "The Crosstown cannot be built without city and state cooperation," he said, "and the two sides must work it out together or risk losing $900,000 in sorely needed funds for Illinois transportation."

Tanaka, on a 6- dlay visit to the United States, stopped Friday in Chicago while on his way to San Francisco. UNIFAX Japanese Leader Urges More U. S. Farm Exports CHICAGO (UPI) — Prime Minister Kakuei Tanaka of Japan told a luncheon crowd of Midwestern businessmen Friday that much Midwestern produce finds its way to Japanese dinner tables and that Japan is anxious to purchase more American farm products. "We depend on the Midwest and other parts of the United States for over 90 per cent of the soybeans we consume," the stocky prime minister told a luncheon hosted by Mayor Richard J. Daley. "This explains why we are anxious to see you expand your*supply of farrh products to us rather than control your exports." THE ALLUSION to soybean consumption and expansion of farm; production marked Tanaka's only mention of Japan's being cut off from U. S. soybeans due to this spring's feed shortage.. Tanaka said the U. S. deficit in trade with Japan in 1972 exceeded $4 billion but, that through joint efforts, this year's deficit has been reduced to about half the 1972 level. Noting allegations by some American businessmen that Japan's business policies are restrictive, Tanaka said that the Japanese market today "is as open as the American market." Tanaka emphasized 2-way trade between Japan and the Midwest. THE PRIME MINISTER balanced a statement on the Midwestern popularity of Japanese cameras and color televisions saying, "More and more Japanese are today drinking Midwestern beer chilled in refrigerators made in Chicago." More than 500 city officials and visiting Japanese are Midwestern business leaders jammed the Red Lacquer Room of the Palmer House to hear Tanaka. The prime minister flew on to San Francisco following his Chicago appearance. Peoria Cop, Trooper Are Indicted for Illegal Bugs .. PEORIA, III. (UPI) — An indictment was returned Friday against a Peoria policeman and an Illinois state trooper, charging them with using illegal electronic bugs during an investigation of a suspected burglary ring leader. The indictment charges policeman Terry Fondrest and trooper Robert Webb with eavesdropping and official misconduct. It charges that the policeman bugged the apartment of Lyle Osborne in Peoria between Jan. 24 and Feb. 8, 1972 without getting permission from their superiors and without going through the necessary legal channels. The Peoria County grand jury, which returned the indictment, also indicted four other law officers last month on charges of official misconduct and eavesdropping. In that case, the four were accused of bugging the apartment telephone of former Peoria Mayor E. Michael O'Brien. They were members of a Tri-County intelligence unit formed to investigate official misconduct and organized crime in the Peoria area. Scott's Office To Probe Mistreatment of Children CHICAGO (UPI) - Allegations of mistreatment of Illinois children placed in Texas institutions by the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services will be investigated by the Illinois attorney general's office. Illinois Atty. Gen. William J. Scott said Friday that his office would conduct the investigation in conjunction with the Texas attorney general. SCOTT SAID investigatiors, in addition to probing allegations of abuse of children, would look into why the children were taken to Texas and whether the Texas institutions to which the children were taken were qualified. Scott said investigators also would attempt to determine if there was any wrongdoing on the part of the persons who placed the children in the Taxas institutions. "Our greatest concern is the welfare of these forgotten children," Scott said. "Two have died, there have been charges of abuse and even rape." SCOTT SAID his office would look into those charges and the possibility of criminal violations: Several hundred children—wards of the State of Illinois—were placed in Texas institutions in past years because the Department of Children and Family Services said there were no suitable homes for them in Ulinois. About half of the children have been returned to Illinois amidst charges that they were abused during their stays in Texas institutions. V
