FOTO FACTS By Mike Rogers ^•••^••••M People tend to "freeze" when they know a picture of them to about to be taken. This may be because picture taking has always been associated with posing. "Say Cheese" means not only "smile" but also "hold atuT* to most of us. Also, it's only natural for everyone to want to look their best, so we pose in what we hope will be an attractive, flattering attitude. As a refreshing change, try to get imposed pictures.... shots of people who are active, busy, relaxed and natural. Put people at ease before photographing. Ask questions, get them talking and thinking about Anything but posing. Think about us when you think of better equipment, photo film or other supplies.

George Deukmejian and his wife paid $15,829 in federal, state and local taxes on income of $59,228 in 1986, he reported Friday. Although his salary of $48,749 was about the same as in 1985, their income was nearly $11,000 less, and they paid over $4,000 less in taxes. His salary jumped to $85,000 on Jan. 1 this year. SACRAMENTO (AP) — Outside a complex of one-story offices along a suburban street, a plaque listing the federal and state agencies located there has a makeshift yellow paper taped on it. "U.S. Dept. of Labor. OSHA" is hand-written in black marker on the paper to indicate one of the offices. Inside that office, boxes are piled in one corner in the unmistakable sign of recent occupation. Thus is indicated a transition — and a legal and political battle over worker safety likely to continue into the 1988 election year. Beginning July 1, die federal government took over inspections of private workplaces affecting 9.8 million California workers. Gov. George Deukmejian, carrying through his proposal to end the state worker safety program, vetoed $18 million in state and federal funds in the 1987-88 budget, leaving the state program largely unfunded. The California Occupational Safety and Health Act program, known as Cal-OSHA, and its 1973 law, more stringent in many respects than the federal laws, remain on the books. But nobody is enforcing them anymore. The federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration, or federal OSHA, on July 1 began enforcing only the federal laws in California because the Republican governor in effect eliminated the state program by cutting its funding in the budget Four lawsuits seeking to block Deukmejian's action as overstepping his legal and constitutional authority are pending in three courts, including a California Labor Federation, AFL-CIO, suit in the state Supreme Court. Hearings probably won't be scheduled until the fall and final decisions could be months away. Meanwhile, Democratic legislators strongly opposed to Cal- OSHA's demise are talking about putting an initiative on the ballot next year to reinstate the worker safety program. And the fight is likely to resume in the Legislature when lawmakers return Aug. 17 from their summer recess for the final four weeks of session this year. Pending bills include ones to shift some worker safety enforcement to criminal courts and to reinstate a modified Cal-OSHA program in exchange for worker compensation program reforms. Last January, Deukmejian in his proposed 1987-88 budget said he wanted to save money by eliminating the state program and letting federal OSHA take over. He said the federal program was just as good. Department spokesman Richard Stephens says 27 Cal-OSHA employees have retired (a' 'Golden Handshake" early retirement plan was offered), and 93 professional workers and 72 clerical workers have resigned. The remaining 112 workers whose jobs are being eliminated are still working for the division, while the long civil service process necessary to end a job continues, Stephens said. ANN LANDERS Lady Godiva' a traffic hazard -«.-* j -a ....... Dear Ann Landers: My husband and I are truck drivers who travel thousands of miles every month. We thought we had seen everything until one night last week, a few miles outside of St. Louis, we spotted a woman driving completely nude, in a nice-looking ARE YOU WORRIED ABOUT CRIME IN MENDOCINO COUNTY? YOU SHOULD BE. ~s. Here is why: • Since 1973, the number of calls for service received by the Mendocino County Sheriff's Office has gone up 168 percent. • During the same time, the number of deputies patrolling the county has gone down. • Sheriff Tim Shea estimates we need to add 66 deputies just to keep pace with crime. • The proposed county budget would mean cutting even more law enforcement functions-fewer deputies, less patrol, less protection against crime. The criminals are already cheering. y What can you do? Contact your County Supervisors. Write letters. Make phone calls. Attend the budget hearing on Wednesday, July 29 at 9:00 a.m.. Sign one of the petitions available at any office of the Mendocino County Sheriff's Department. MAKE YOUR FEELINGS KNOWN! This information is brought to you by the Mendocino County Deputy Sheriff's association- concerned about your saftey and ours. car with the lights on. The naked lady passed us, gave a couple of friendly toots on the horn, waved and went on to pass another truck, sounded the hom, waved and smiled. About 20 miles up the highway we decided to stop for gas. Guess who had pulled into the service station? Right. The naked lady — still naked and still smiling. My husband asked if I would mind if he went over and had a word with her. I said, "Not at all. I'm dying to know what she's up to." He duly reported after about three minutes of conversation (trying his darnedest to look only into her eyes) that she was not a prostitute and did the night ride sans clothes "for kicks." Apparently it has not occurred to her that there are some decent people out there who don't appreciate her hobby. There should be a law against this. How about it? — Seen It All in Gentry, Ark. Dear Gent: There is a law. It's the prohibition of indecent exposure. "Lady Godiva" would surely be hauled in if she were spotted by a highway patrolman. That woman is a hazard to public safety. Such a sight could easily startle a driver, causing him or her to plow into another vehicle or straight into a ditch. Dear Ann Landers: I live in Utah, where physically abusing a woman is looked upon as a very serious charge. I want you to know what I've put up with for three years. (I'm now in the process of being divorced.) When my wife doesn't get her way, she becomes violent. I'm 6-foot-5. "Mary" is 5-foot-4. She has put me in the hospital twice. We've been married three years. In all that time I slapped her only once, when she threw her $1,500 engagement ring out the window. (I never did find it.) Since that time, I haven't laid a hand on her. But she has kicked me, torn my clothes, pulled my hair out and scratched my face and arms. The reason I let her beat on me is because in Utah you don't hit a woman. I had to appear in court when she charged me with aggravated assault. (My wife didn't nave a bruise on her body.) It was a humiliating experience. Everyone knew about it — family, friends and my employers. A lot has been written about wife-beating, but very little about husbands who get beaten up by their wives. Husband-beating is one of the best-kept secrets of our time. Please speak out, Ann. — Salt Lake City Dear" Si,.: Husband-beating is no secret to me, or to anyone who reads this column. I've dealt with it many times. My advice to men who get clobbered by the spouse is the same as for women whose husbands beat them up: Insist that the offender seek counseling or get out pronto. Dear Ann Landers: My parents have been divorced nine years. The good news is that my mother recently married a wonderful man. The bad news is that my father has been seeing a widowed Catholic. She wants him to have his marriage annulled so she can accept Communion. If my father's marriage is annulled, what does that make me? The word that comes to mind is "bastard." Right? — Null and Void in Mich. Dear Null: Wrong. According to a research theologian at the Archdiocese of Chicago, a marriage annulment in no way affects the children. They remain legitimate.
