8 -THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 24,1987 -THE UKIAH DAILY JOURNAL Offshore testing may be halted MM LANDERS SACRAMfcfcTO (AP) —• the staff of the State Lands Commission recommended Wednesday that 19 permits Sought by oil and geophysics firms to survey the ocean floor not be renewed without a full environmental impact report. Recent studies have indicated that the surveys, used mostly to seek likely offshore oil deposits, could hurt the fishing industry, the staff said. the three-member commission, after a three-hour hearing, decided to hold another hearing Oct. 7 to decide whether to accept the recommendation. Industry representatives urged the commission to renew the permits and let them continue their work while any studies are conducted. But legislators, local officials and fishing and environmentalist groups pushed for the staff recommendation. At issue are geophysical survey permits that were issued in May 1984. they expired May 31,1987, but were extended until Sept. 28. those seeking to renew their permits include oil firms such as Phillips Petroleum, Shell, Arco, texaco, Chevron, Mobil, Exxon, Union Oil and Cities Service. the others aYe geophysical firms such as Land and Sea Surveyors and Geophysical Service Inc., and scientific outfits such as the U.S. Geological Survey and the University of Southern California. Robert Fabcr of the International Association of Geophysical Contractors said oil firms arc Ihc largest users of the surveys, both to locale formations that might contain oil and gas and to determine where to place drilling rigs. the commission staff report said commercial fishing groups say the noise causes fish to leave their normal feeding grounds and changes their behavior. Three studies have indicated that it happens, but critics have said all three studies are flawed. the staff report said abalonc and sea urchin divers arc concerned about potential eardrum damage and loss of equilibrium from the noises.

Anyone who gets ahold of a charge card number can call anywhere in the world. When my son was in Korea on field duty, someone broke into his locker and stole his wallet. Although the wallet was returned with his calling card intact, someone copied the code number. The phone company took note of the large amount charged to our phone and alerted me. When I told the woman at AT&T that my son's wallet had been stolen she canceled the card immediately. At that time the charges amounted to $485. When the bill arrived 10 days later, it was $3,594. Almost all calls were placed within. 13 days. Isn't it sad that someone would do this to a young man who is serving his country? — C.M. in Lancaster Dear Lancaster: It's not only sad, it's infuriating* Your letter will go a long way toward alerting people to this shameful scam. Thanks for getting the word out Dear Ann Landers: Several readers have complained about clergymen who mispronounced the names of the deceased at funerals as well as brides and grooms during marriage services, those letters brought back memories. In 1965, when my father passed away, the priest got his juniors and seniors mixed up and the eulogy he gave was for me and not my dad. I was amused rather than angered because I had been accustomed to hearing myself pronounced dead. In October, 1942,1 checked with my draft board because men younger than I were being called into service. The clerk's exact words were, "Why didn't you keep your big mouth shut? We have you listed as dead." I am — "Rafferty" in Glen Elyn, III. Dear Raff: I'm glad to know you are alive and well and that your sense of humor is intact. Dear Ann Landers: My wife insists that readers who write to you for advice or read your column are morons. I maintain that they are either idiots or Neanderthals. Who is right? I would also like to know what qualifications you possess to give advice to readers with pressing problems when you are not a psychiatrist, psychologist or even a social worker. — Readers on the East Coast Dear E.C.: The only qualification I have for this job is enough common sense to realize that no one person can know everything. For this reason I have cultivated a stellar array of consultants. In my opinion you and your wife are not morons, idiots or Neanderthals. in the Yokayo Shopping Center _ Beauty Supply House has a professional staff to help you achieve the Salon-Look at home and offers you the greatest selection of professional beauty supplies & accessories available to the public.
