-THE UKIAH DAILY JOURNAL THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 17, 1987—3 Duke may appoint two new judges By RANDY FOSTER Journal Stan Wrttw Last week's Legislature approval of a third superior court in Mendocino County may give Gov. George Deukmejian the unusual opportunity of appointing two superior court judges in a county where there are only three. Deukmejian's staff is still sorting through candidates to replace First Superior Court Judge Arthur Broaddus, who is stepping down from the bench in January. Several candidates are being considered to replace Broaddus, but a spokesman with the Governor's office said Deukmejian is in no hurry to make a decision. "He wants to make a thorough and exhaustive study of the candidates before he makes any choices," said Tom Beermann. "He wants to make a quality appointment. Certainly a decision won't be made until after the first of the year." Broaddus' governor-appointed replacement will remain seated until 1989's November elections, when the office will come before the voters. If Broaddus had decided to retire in December or earlier, the seat would be placed on the ballot in June 1988. A third Mendocino County superior court was part of legislation that created 109 judgeships 'statewide. "The Governor has not taken action on the bill yet,' Beermann said. "Gov. Deukmejian said last week he was leaning toward signing it, but he wants to take a close look at the bill first. It may be a little premature to say he will." He has until Oct. 2 to take action on the bill. If the bill is approved, the same selection process currently underway to replace Judge Broaddus will take place to fill the third superior court vacancy. That appointment won't take the bench until July 1,1988, said county Administrative Analyst Mike Scannell.

Children hit by truck PHELAN (AP) — Two children were hurt critically and three others suffered major injuries today as they were struck by a pickup truck while waiting for a school bus, the California Highway Patrol said. "A pickup ran off the road and hit a bunch of kids waiting for a school bus," said Pat Tennis, a supervising dispatcher for the CHP's Barstow office. Federal bill would help replant forest Rep. Bosco seeks $50M By RANDY FOSTER Journal Staff Writer Efforts to restore federal lands burned during September's fires may be bolstered by an appropriations bill that would pump some $50 million into restoration work. • Spnsoring the bill are Rep. Doug Bosco, D- Occidental, and at least three other representatives from areas most hurt by the recent fires. The package, which could be tacked on as a supplement to the 1988 Department of Agriculture appropriations bill now being considered by the House, is still in its concept stage and won't be put to the floor until accurate appraisals of fire damage have been made. "It's still a little too smokey there," said Bosco aide Mitch Stogner. The money would be doled out through the Forest Service to restore federal lands in the Pacific Northwest region hit hard by the fires, he said. The Mendenhall fire burned more than 60,000 acres, mostly within Mendocino National Forest boundaries. It is still burning, but officials expect the fire will remain within its control boundaries until the coming rainy season completely extinguishes the flames. The Forest Service on Monday pledged some $600,000 to restore its land burned in the Mendenhall fire. How the appropriations bill would affect the Mendenhall fire region and the Forest Service's pledge has not been decided. On a broad scale, the money would be directed toward forest rehabilitation and protection of soil and watersheds through erosion control. Much of the region burned lies within the Lake Pillsbury watershed, and ultimately provides drinking water for 300,000 people in three counties. The area was also a productive timber zone and some of the money would fund a survey of salvageable timber. But Bosco said private landholders hurt by the fires won't get any relief from the bill and little from other sources. "Assistance programs look better on paper than they turn out to be," he said. "There's really not all that much the government will do for private landowners. I don't want to raise people's expectations." OPEN 11-9 MON-SAI CLOSED SUNDAY 570 N. STATES!
