By PETER PAGE Journal Stiff Writer The second degree murder conviction of a Ukiah man has been overturned by the state Court of Appeals. Lorenzo Anzilotti was convicted November 1985 of murdering wife of 30 violent a in Joselia Anzilotti, his years, following argument. The Appeals Court, in a ruling released this morning by Duncan James, Anzilotti's attorney, said the jury in the case reached the verdict on the basis of erroneous instructions. "What it really comes down to was the jury was not properly instructed on the law," James said. The verdict was reached on the basis of an instruction that "if the killing occurred as a direct causal result of the commission of a felony inherently dangerous to human life" then the finding of second degree murder was justified. Although then-District Attorney Vivian Rackauckas had originally charged Anzilotti with first degree murder, with the special circumstance that the killing was done in the commission of a burglary and rape. That charge was later amended to drop the burglary and rape allegations due to a lack of evidence. The jury found Anzilotti not guilty of first degree murder. They were then instructed that if they deter' mined the killing was done in the commission of rape or burglary, Anzilotti was guilty of second degree murder. The Appeals Court ruled that if the killing was done as part of the felonies of rape or burglary, then Anzilotti had to be either guilty of first degree murder or innocent. The case was ordered returned to Mendocino County. The court noted that in similar cases) where domestic argument turns violent and results in homg cide, "not infrequently a verdict; such cases is voluntarj manslaughter." Anzilotti was sentenced to 1! years to life in prison for the killing of his wife. He has been jailed conti| nuously since his arrest in Fcbruar 1984. District Attorney Susan Massir said she will make a decision o| whether to file new charges afte she has had a chance to review th trial record and the appeals cour ruling. James said Anzilotti will probat ly be returned to Mendocino Cour ty in the next four to'six wecksl Grant considered vital to carpet jobs City Council expected to approve bid Tues. By PETER PAGE Journal Staff Writer Federal funding to extend an industrial sewer line to the Carousel Industrial Park is considered vital to preserving 110 jobs. The Ukiah City Council, at a special meeting Tuesday, is expected to approve an application to the federal Economic Development Commission for a $715,000 grant to extend a sewer line 1.1 miles along Soviets reportedly make proposal October Average Temperatures LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Soviet Union is proposing that any agreement with the United States on long-range nuclear weapons would automatically lapse if either side deploys space-based defense systems, a newspaper reported today. The proposal's wording is imprecise, but the plan apparently means the Soviets are trying to prevent deployment of President Reagan's Strategic Defense Initiative rather than trying to halt further development of it, the Los Angeles Times reported. The Times, citing unidentified sources at the nuclear arms talks in Geneva, Switzerland, said the United States will probably try to get a clarification of the proposal during the Oct. 22 Moscow meeting between Secretary of State George P. Shultz and Soviet Foreign Minister Eduard A. Shevardnadze. The Soviet offer was made two weeks ago during a meeting between Shultz and Shevardnadze in Washington, D.C., the paper said. It stipulates that a 50 percent cut in strategic nuclear weapons would be conditional on a 10-year extension of the 1972 Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty. The new limits would lapse at the end of the period in the event of any exceptional developments in the field of anti-ballistic missile defense, the Times said. the Northwestern Pacific Railroad right-of-way from the Louisiana Pacific mill to the industrial park. The extension, extimated to cost up to $1.3 million, would connect 40 existing businesses to the sewer system, but would also allow sewer' service considered essential for future industrial development north of the current city limits. The immediate benificiary, i according to grant documents, would be Carousel Carpets Mills. The mill needs the sewer connection to develop a yarn dyeing capability it feels is essential to remain competitive. The mill employs 110 people, with another 46 jobs expected to open up if the yarn dyeing project is completed. Without the yarn dyeing capability, the mill may have to relocate, according to documents prepared in support of the grant application. Nearly all the cost of the sewer extension is to be borne by federal and state grants, with the city an Ukiah Valley Sewer District payir $10,000 combined, and CarouS Carpets paying $90,000. Carousel Carpets will be requir to sign an agreement not to resis any future annexation effort by tT city, according to a memorandu submitted to the City Council. Action on the grant applicalic will be taken at a council mcetii scheduled for 4:30 p.m. Tuesday i the public meeting room of Grace Hudson Museum.

(AP) — David Snow's crusade to ban lawn darts has forced a showdown on the issue, less than six months after his 7-year-old daughter was killed by a toy dan. "I promised her that the toy that took her life would never take another," Snow said as a federal agency prepared to consider a product ban. "She knows that Dad always kept his promises." On Thursday, the three-member federal Consumer Product Safety Commission will meet in Washington, D.C. to decide if a ban is MURAL appropriate. The move follows months of letter-writing, congressional testimony and meetings with lawmakers by Snow, a 39-year-old aerospace production supervisor who had never even written a letter to his congressman before the campaign. Testifying recently before a House of Representatives subcommittee, he condemned the safety commission for failing to enforce regulations intended to keep lawn darts out of childrens' hands. A few days later, the commission began an investigation. MARKET Strong gains NEW YORK (AP) — The stock market ran up a strong gain today, inspired by hopes for a stable dollar in foreign exchange.

Hamilton believes it would be too difficult for current students to replicate the original work, and too costly to hire a professional. Instead, Hamilton believes that each 12-by-20 foot panel should be painted anew by the senior class on a rotating basis. Principal Phil Gary agrees. "Each senior class would be given a panel to be responsible for," he explained. "Every four or five years, there would be a new (mural.) Gary added that this method make it difficult to guarantee the continuity and quality of the artwork on the wall. Hamilton, however, believes that the project could be a success. "I feel it should be something consistent," he said. "But each senior class is unique and (the mural) should be represented in that way." Hamilton said senior art students could submit designs that would be selected by the art department. He predicted it would probably take six months to paint one panel. "If we had something changing, it would be invigorating for students and staff," Hamilton said. "In every class, there are two to four students that feel strongly about art and the school." Funds for the painttoould have to come either from the school or a community fund-raiser. Cost of the paint is expected to be about $125 for one panel. Paint for the original murals was donated to the school by a paint company.

Price the home too low and you just price yourself out of potential profits and you may wonder why so many happy buyers are standing in line outside your door with offers. Price the home too high and you send ouf a psychological signal, suggesting to buyers that you're after unaware of what's happening in the market or you're not all that serious about selling. Imagine, for example, hearing that Cindy Lindgren for $20,000, Would you make an offer? Pricing your home right is just as important as pricing any commodity right as you put it on the market. You want the highest possible price, but you also want to attract buyers. How do you arrive at such a price?
