-FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 25,1987 THE UKIAH DAILY JOURNAL- DF&G study shows a healthy Garcia River I *, Report premature says Townsend By PETER PAGE Journal Stiff Writer Fishermen with long memories are disj missing as "premature" a state study thai found a healthy fishery in the Garcia Riv-i er, but a timber industry representative' claimed the study proves logging and fish ing can be compatible. Brian Hunter, regional director of the Department of Fish and Game, wrote in a letter to county Supervisor Norman dfe Vail that a survey Aug. 17 to 20 found "excellent populations of juvenile steelhead" in the Garcia and some of its tributary creeks. "This report is premature," said Bill Townsend, chairman of the Mendocino County Fish and Game Advisory Commission. "The population they found is not a drop in the bucket compared to what used to be there." The key issue is erosion silting 1 up the river and ruining it as fish habitat, Townsend said. A follow-up study is needed next year, after winter rains, he said, and Hunter agreed. The study was prompted by a letter to Senator Barry Keene from de Vail last December in which de Vail asked Keene's assistance in "determining the cause of the loss of salmon and steelhead stocks in the Garcia River." Hunter, in a report back to de Vail, found populations of juvenile steelhead ranging from 602 per mile on the Garcia River itself, to 11,934 per mile on Rolling Brook. "It's clear that the timber harvest practices, and the rules we have today, are helping," Hunter said in a telephone interview. De Vail welcomed the report as "excellent news" but said he wanted it reviewed by the county Fish and Game Advisory Commission. The Garcia River and its drainage are in the southwest portion of the county in the vacinity of Point Arena. "We are concerned that people think logging is causing problems with the fishery, and we want people to know the populations are good, said Glenys Simmons, spokeswoman for Louisiana- Pacific. L-P has logged continuously in the Gar-, cia River drainage since 1979. The fish and game study proves thai logging, at least under current regulation, is .compatible with a healthy fishery, Simmons said. She noted that the corporation has fish rearing operations in cooperation with private groups in Mendocino and Humboldt counties. L-P also plans to open a facility to rear coho salmon to plant in the Russian River. "The (Garcia) river looks better than it has in a long time, but it's nothing like it was 40 years ago, and it all reverts back to the logging," said Leonard Craig, a lifelong Point Arena resident and an activist in the Save Our Salmon fish rearing effort on the Garcia. » Biggest party in city history on tap Saturday With the theme of "Ukiah, Then & Now, 1876-1987," a community celebration of huge proportions will be held Saturday to celebrate the completion of Ukiah's new Civic Center — the restored and renovated Yokayo Elementary School building on Oak Street Beginning at 1 p.m. a parade will feature the Ukiahi Band, flags, young people and old, new cars and old, along with entertainers who will be performing at the Civic Center during the day's activities following the parade. Depicting the move from "old to new," the parade will march through the center of town ceremonially emptying out the old city offices and moving into the new. It is hoped that everyone will join in at the end of the parade and progress to the new facility. Mayor Colleen Henderson will be in charge of the dedication ceremony which will begin at the conclusion of the parade. City council members, former Ukiah mayors and city council members, school officials, and other city dignitaries will take part in the program.

Overturning an 1864 law that has made it virtually impossible for veterans to get lawyers when seeking disability benefits "would make the system more formal, more adversarial," the VA's chief counsel, Donald Ivers, said in an interview Thursday. "I frankly don't think the end result (in benefit claims), veteran by veteran, would be significantly different. It would just take longer." 50/50 SAVINGS CLOVERDALE GRAPE FESTIVAL SEPTEMBER 25,26 & 27 MUSIC-MUSIC-MUSIC 50's- Wtstern NASA chief sees Soviets landing men on Mars first SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The Soviets will beat the United States to Mars, probably landing cosmonauts on that planet by the end of the century, according to NASA administrator James Fletcher. "They probably would win a race," Fletcher told the San Francisco Chronicle on Thursday. A cooperative flight to Mars with the Soviets "is a possibility that should be examined," added Fletcher, who was in San Francisco to address the Commonwealth Club. Fletcher, head of NASA in the early 1970s, came back to direct the agency after last year's Challenger disaster. The American space program is "solidly on the road back to reliable operations," he said, but added the program must be rebuilt on a Steady, step-by-step basis." He said that about the time the Soviets land on Mars the United States should be concentrating on such missions as a permanent base on the moon and scientific uses of a space station as preliminary steps to any Mars mission. Belcher told the club a space station was "the key to our future in space" and essential to eventual •recovery of space leadership.
