THE UKIAH DAILY JOURNAL- SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 20,1987-** Soviet apologizes for shooting incident -SOLUTION WASHINGTON (AP) — Soviet Foreign Minister Eduard A. She- vardnadze is apologizing for the wounding of an American soldier on liaison duty in East Germany, saying Soviet troops only meant to fire a warning. Shevardnadze said Friday that the two-man U.S. liaison team was "very close" to a closed security area when the incident occurred. The Pentagon acknowledged the apology but said it would still insist on a fuller explanation. Shevardnadze, appearing at a news conference at the Russian embassy here, acknowledged that Soviet military personnel had opened fire Thursday after confronting a vehicle carrying the two U.S. servicemen, who are attached to an accredited military liaison office in East Germany. Shevardnadze insisted the Soviets had fired only warning shots and that both sides were at fault. Pentagon spokesman Robert Sims dismissed those assertions, Agenda County Board of Education A public hearing for the Mendocino County Office of Education's $9.9 million budget will be held at 1 ? .m., Monday, in the boardroom at 240 Eastside Rd. in Talmage. The budget is 12 percent down from last year, due to the transfer of special education programs to individual .school districts. The transfer included about 30 teachers and 30 aides. Also cut were about six administrative positions and another six workers whose positions are dependent on federal programs. Also on the agenda is a vote on purchase of six acres next to the River Center offices. MCOE plans to lease the property to the California Conservation Corps. • Trustees also will vote on a new policy that requires all consultancy contracts over $1,500 to have board approval. ;The newly-restored Native /pnerican program also will come before the board. The cost of providing the program to students is ejtimated at $96,450. »* Qkiah Unified School Board •* IThe Ukiah Unified School District Board of Education meets at 7:15 p.m. Tuesday at the School Services Center, 925 N. State St. :The board will vote on a propsal td use $500,000 in lottery funds to pay for employee health benefits. The lottery money already has been incorporated in the district's $21.3 million general fund budget under "reserve." However, specific use for the money must be reported to the state. 1 The board also will vote on selection of Dr. Don De Martini as the ntw district superintendent effective Oct. 1. : Also on the agenda is a report on tie Slingerland program, the Gann limit, a report on school enrollment, $id a discussion of the transportation budget. saying the two Americans were outside any restricted area, had been fired upon with an automatic weapon from behind, and had done nothing to violate the terms of the 1947 agreement that established the Military Liaison Mission system. "This was an obviously serious incident that had almost tragic results," Sims said. "What we have done is protest this as totally unjustifiable. We've said that we expect a full explanation for the reasons for the incident." Sims identified the two Americans as Air Force Capt. Bennett McCutcheon of Scottsdale, Ariz., and Air Force Master Sgt. Charles L. Barry of Tucson, Ariz. Barry, a 15-year veteran who was driving the vehicle, suffered a superficial wound from a bullet Fragment in his left arm, the spokesman said. Shevardnadze said the two Americans were "very close" to an area "which is prohibited to members of foreign military missions."

The district expected about 70 percent of the water would be used for irrigation, with the balance satisfying domestic needs. But actual usage was nearly the opposite, skyrocketing the district's payment. Now the district is some five payments in arrears and has accrued more than $1 million in interest charges. The district's board of directors have been trying for more thin a year to defer payments until 1989, when they feel customers and revenues will support annual payments of $300,000. Tiemann said the district currently serves 1,150 customers. He anticipates that number will increase to 1,800 by 1989. They are also hoping for a waiver of interest penalties. But the federal Bureau of Reclamation, its hands tied by the terms of the original contract, has refused to budge. "The bureau hasn't been against what we're proposing," Tiermrm said. "But as far as they're concerned, they have to' be directed by Congress." The district sought help from Bosco, who for almost a year attempted to deal with the problem short of putting the issue in bill form and putting it before the House of Representatives. None of the steps worked, and Bosco wrote a bill two months ago calling for deferment of the loan and waivers of interest penalties. Bosco aides aren't sure when the bill will face the full floor, but should get some idea by Wednesday. POPE (continued from page 1) wage earner from a family," he said. "There is material need and suffering in those areas or groups where unemployment risks becoming endemic. There is poverty in the future of those that cannot enjoy the benefits of basic education." Solutions to domestic problems, he added, must not ignore the impact on the rest of the world.
