'Gigantic mess' may involve more deaths THE UKIAH DAILY JOURNAL. WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 16,1987—7 . KNIGHTS LANDING (AP) — Investigators fear more deaths in what one called "a gigantic mess" involving two bodies in Yolo County and the arrest of two California teen-agers in Oregon. The Yolo County sheriff's department reported late Monday the discovery of two bodies in Dunnigan Slough, about IS miles northwest of Sacramento. Both victims had been shot to death, said sheriffs Lt. Jerry Shadinger, who added the "gigantic mess comment. . Throughout the day Tuesday, .authorities hunted for a possible third body. Two Knights Landing boys, ages 16 and 17, were arrested Friday in Oregon by state police on the lookout for a stolen vehicle. The teenagers were held in the Eugene, Ore., juvenile detention center for investigation of grand theft and burglary. Authorities in Eugene said the vehicle contained two handguns when the youths were taken into custody. Shadinger said the Knights Landing youths have been linked to the two Yolo County bodies, but he declined to provide details of the evidence. .Meanwhile Sept. 6, the body of t Montana fireman who came to California to help fight the recent rash of lightning-sparked brush and timber blazes was discovered near Eureka, according to Humboldt County authorities. .He was identified as Grant Boe, 23, of the Rocky Boy Indian Reservation in Montana. Humboldt County authorities said his shooting was also linked to the teen-agers, bat investigators did not elaborate. Yolo County District Attorney pave Henderson said the investigation has been complex. "There are a Ibt of stories going around about who did what," Henderson said. "We're getting different stories, jiist a lot of pieces." S.F. protesters warm up before pope's visit Air tankers up in Klamath By The Associated Press Air tankers and helicopters have once again joined ground forces in the battle against fires raging on 162,000 acres in Klamath National Forest, officials reported today. "Tuesday was the first time in about two weeks that we were able to have any kind of air show," said John Garland, a spokesman for the U.S. Forest Service. "The air was clear of smoke and we had no tremendous problems." Garland said the smoke was so bad on Monday that no flights were made by reconnaissance aircraft capable of taking infrared photos. The reconnaissance flights were made on Tuesday night, placing the latest figure at 162,000 acres. Meantime, the Shasta and Trinity national forests were closed Tuesday to public use, including deer hunting, because of dangers to firefighters and visitors, the U.S. Forest Service announced.

If they are comfortable in what they are wearing, no one has the right to call them names. They aren't hurting anyone. while death brings sadness, it can also bring peace and closeness to loved ones who still have their lives to live. Here's the obituary: Pamela Sue Goldsmith, 40, of Boise, died peacefully at 10 p.m. Sunday, shortly after sunset on Father's Day. During her six- month illness she received an enormous amount of love from her friends and family. Despite the illness, her last days were happy. We want to thank all who helped in so many ways. My hair is considered wild by most people. It is shaved on one side and is a blazing cranberry color: Big deal. I am comfortable with who I am and how I look. I enjoy being a little eccentric.

MONTHLY AVERAGE U.S. GASOLINE PRICES In dollars per gallon of self-serve regular unleaded gasoline: SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Two days before Pope John Paul H's visit here, some of San Francisco's multitude of protesters warmed up for the event under t sunny sky at Civic Center. Four distinct demonstrations, and a fifth aimed at sabotaging one of them, were going on Tuesday within on a block of City Hall around the lunch hour. One of them, a satirical effort, was hostile to the pope. It was this unfriendly group that drew the attention of agents outside the federal building. Packing a Polaroid camera, the agents snapped one picture after another of the garishly garbed "Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence." "The pope's visit to San Francisco is prejudicial to the public interest," pronounced Sister Vicious, a grease-painted male dressed in a khaki leotard, snakeskin boots, an Army private's jacket and veil and headdress of the middle ages. Homosexuals in San Francisco, as elsewhere, have denounced the Vatican view that "homosexuality is intrinsically evil." Down the street, in front of City Hall, about a half-dozen bald-cut Hare Krishnas chanted, danced and I banged drums and tambourines. Off to the side, a table bore evidence of their current cause — "Soviet Krishnas (who) want recognition as a religion in their country." "Free the Soviet Hare Kirshnas," read buttons freely handed out. On the other side of the street, a pickup truck made up like a parade float appeared to be a backdrop for informational activity. The truck bed was decorated with cut-put figures of a young girl and boy in diapers. A sign on the truck asked why Catholics don't have women priests. Back at the federal building, an hour-long anti-Contra demonstration, complete with guitar music and singing, finished up, as the Sisters of Peipetual Indulgence did their thing. Just as Sister Vicious was getting ready to "declare war" on the pope, a male in skirt, mascara and three- inch eyelashes flounced in and protested the protest. There is currently an internecine feud going on within the organization. "We are so outraged," said "Sister Sadie, the Rabbi Lady," by "these people who steal our banner and let you think that there is only one statement and it's a violent one ... we want to make sure everyone enjoys themselves (in the pope's visit). It's still a free America. Shame on them." Men's 3 Pack Tube Socks 3 pack lube socks by SpaMfcif feature cotton/nylon construction, and come in a variety of stripe color treatment*.
