-THE UKIAH DAILY JOURNAL- WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 30,1987- 3 Potter elk legislation signed by Deukmejian SACRAMENTO — Gov. George Deukmejian has signed legislation by Assemblyman Dan Mauser (D-Arcata) to help Potter Valley ranchers deal with a severe tale elk problem that has been costing them thousands of dollars a year. Assembly Bill 998 instructs the Department of Pish and Game to create a management plan in Potter Valley and other areas of the state where tule elk are causing havoc to local property owners to make sure they cause no further problems. Under the plan, the Department could relocate the elk or, in certain cases, allow them to be hunted, provided that statewide the herd remains at at least 2,000. "The problem started about 20 years ago when the Legislature passed legislation to protect the state's tule elks, then undergoing a steep decline in population. To achieve this, one of the tools the department had was to relocate them to other good habitat areas," Mauser explained. "It was a good plan for the most part Unfortunately, the elk that were moved to Mendocino County were supposed to stay at Lake Pillsbury. Instead, they migrated about 20 miles to Potter Valley, where ranchers' fences did not stop them from getting into all that delicious food the ranchers were growing for their own livestock," the North Coast lawmaker said. "We've crafted a good bill here that will take the tule elk off the ranches where they are not wanted, either by placing them elsewhere in areas where they can't do destruction to local property owners, by allowing them to be selectively hunted, or other means the department works out with local ranchers. This can be done without diminishing the original intent of the legislation's purpose, which is to keep the herd at about a 2,000 population level," Mauser added. Mauser's office had negotiated with the Sierra Club and the Friends of Wildlife in crafting the bill, and both environmental organizations removed their opposition to the bill as it moved through the Legislature. Fort Bragg arson reward up to $15,000 FORT BRAGG—Willis Kyle of Kyle Railways, Inc. is donating $8,750 toward the Secret Witness Arson Fund. The town's library, court and historic Piedmont Hotel burned Sept. 20 in suspicious early morning fires. . Also, the Fort Bragg city council Tuesday night contributed $5,000 for a total fund of $15,000. In appreciation of Kyle's pledge, KMFB/KPMO is donating $2,000 worth of advertisement to Fort Bragg's famous Skunk Train, operated by California Western Railway, t subsidiary of Kyle Railways. "We want to see whoever started these fires caught so that the community is freed of the fear it's under now and can get on with life," said radio station owner George Anderson. Anderson said federal investigators told him at a news conference earlier this week that rewards in these types of arson cases were generally around $10,000. That prompted Kowas' request of Kyle. Cash donations to help rebuild the library may be sent to Operation Phoenix, Friends of Fort Bragg Library, Bank of America, P.O.

Ignore 'disinformation' Reagan speaks up in Bork's defense Senate votes to ban all Iranian imports WASHINGTON (AP) — The Senate has agreed to halt all Iranian imports into the United Slates, but it still can't agree whether to approve a congressional veto of President Reagan's, Persian Gulf, policy. The chamber was scheduled today to return again to a Pentagon budget bill that is being held up by Democratic-backed proposals dealing with Reagan's policies on the gulf and nuclear amis control. While the Democratic-controlled chamber struggled to finish the measure, the nation's lop military officer admitted the Navy underestimated the threat posed by Iranian mines. "We made some mistakes," Adm. William Crowe Jr., chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told a Senate committee Tuesday. "If I had it to do over again, I wouldn't do it that way." "Obviously, we didn't want the Bridgcton to happen," he said, referring to the July 24 incident in which the giant Kuwaiti oil tanker hit a mine in the war-torn waterway while it was being protected by a trio of Navy warships. During three weeks of debates and decisions on the $302 billion Pentagon bill, both sides have argued about Reagan's policy of reflagging 11 Kuwaiti tankers and protecting them with Navy convoys through the gulf. Critics fear U.S. involvement in the Iran-Iraq war. The Democratic proposal would end the reflagging and convoys 90 days after the law takes effect, unless both the House and Senate approve thcjxilicy. But Reagan has ihreaiened"b veto any bill containing that restriction and Senate Republicans arc considering a filibuster that also would block the chamber from voting on the issue. Crowe told the Armed Services Committee it would be a "terrible error" for Congress to order a withdrawal. Shortly after Crowe spoke, the Senate voted 98-0 approval of another amendment to the Pentagon bill that would bar the import into the United States of all Iranian goods. Democratic presidential candidates Albert Gore Jr. of Tennessee and Paul Simon of Illinois did not vote. The ban was proposed by Sen. Bob Dole, R-Kan., who said, "while (Ayatollah Ruhollah) Khomeini is recklessly attacking gulf shipping to stop the flow of everybody else's oil, we're buying a half-billion dollars of his oil every year." The 90-day amendment.is backed by Democrats who complain that Reagan should have invoked the War Powers Act, the 1973 law which limits a president's authority to send troops to areas of "imminent hostilities." No vote has been set on the amendment. WASHINGTON (AP) — President Reagan, fighting to keep his Supreme Court nomination of Robert H. Bork alive, today urged the Senate to ignore a "campaign of disinformation and distortion" against the conservative jurist. He did not say whom he was accusing of such a campaign. Reagan, in a speech to supporters at the White House complex, said his nominee represents the mainstream of U.S. legal thought, and he hotly disputed the idea that Bork is a radical who would upset the balance of the court. "I do not believe the United States Senate will succumb to allowing the special interests to choose Supreme Court members," Reagan said. The president, in the latest in a series of speeches designed to counter recent polls that have shown the public is turning against ' Bork, argued that those opposed to the nomination had twisted Bork's record and misinterpreted his writings as a legal scholar. Judge Robert Bork will enrich and invigorate that court and the Constitution it guards,'" Reagan said. "Let us insist that the Senate not give in to noisy, strident pressures and... not be swayed by a deliberate campaign of disinformation and distortion," Reagan said. "We will not be satisfied with allowing special interests to determine the qualifications to serve on our country's highest court," he added. Earlier, Reagan took issue with Sen. Alan Cranston's prediction that the Supreme Court nominee is "licked." "I'm very optimistic," Reagan told reporters. "I think common sense will prevail and they will realize he's the best choice in the market today for that post." Reagan, asked about Cranston's survey — which shows 49 senators likely to oppose Bork, 40 likely to vote for him and 11 undetermined — responded simply, "Sen. Cranston's been wrong before." At the hearings, meanwhile, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Joseph R. Biden Jr. said today he expects the panel will vote Tuesday on sending the Bork nomination to the full Senate. Committee members are holding private discussions on whether the nomination will move forward without a recommendation of approval or disapproval, or whether opponents can muster enough votes for a negative recommendation, according to several committee sources. There now appears virtually no chance that the panel, which has eight Democrats and six Republicans, will give Bork the favorable recommendation given most nominees. Biden mentioned the likely vote next week at the start of the final day of confirmation hearings. Before the session got under way, Cranston, D-Calif., and Sen.

State St. (across from the Ukiah Airport) rick Leahy, D-Vt., announced their opposition to Bork. Both had been expected to oppose confirmation. One day earlier, Cranston said of his informal poll of fellow senators, "This reflects a loss of five potential votes for Bork since Sept. IS," the day Bork's confirmation hearings began before the Judiciary Committee. Leahy, a committee member, declared his opposition in a speech on the Senate floor today. He described Bork as brilliant and decent but said Bork is far from a leader in defense of free speech. Bork has moved away from some of his more isolated positions, Leahy said, but still has demonstrated no "passion for vindicating the individual rights of Americans that matches his passion for his rigorous and coherent legal theory of the Constitution." Cranston said in a speech today that Bork "has neither the insight nor the compassion to view discrimination from the perspective of its victims." Confirmation would be "an invitation to the radical right to try to overturn decades of constitutional law in several areas," Cranston said. At the hearing, Biden said 1,925 deans and professors, from 153 of the nation's 172 law schools, have signed letters to the committee opposing Bork. Leadoff witnesses today included New York Attorney General Robert Abrams and Attorney General Charles G. Brown of West Virginia, both of whom attacked Bork's views on antitrust. Bork opponents have said the nominee would allow mergers of large companies, leaving only two or three firms to compete in major product lines or services. Two other Democrats announced their opposition Tuesday. Sen. Paul Simon, D-I11., a candidate for president and member of the Judiciary Committee, said in a speech in Chicago that he will vote no, according to his campaign finance director, Bob Edgar. Sen. Bill Bradley, D-N.J., said he will oppose the nominee because he believes Bork would reverse progress in civil rights cases. UkahDtuly "Journal ~ ManaaelM Count,..
