Clinton sets strict logging guidelines By SCOTT SONNER The Associated Press WASHINGTON — President Clinton laid out strict guidelines Friday for protecting wildlife in Northwest forests, and some government experts say the result could be logging cutbacks to half the traditional levels. Conservationists aren't entirely pleased with Clinton's instructions to his scientific team. They say it could yield a protection plan too weak to meet U.S. environmental laws. President Clinton, after a conference April 2 in Portland, Ore., directed his Cabinet to report back by June 1 with proposals for the Northwest forest management. The White House on Friday released a four-page "mission statement" that explained his directive to three interagency working groups developing the strategies. "Your assessment should include alter- natives that range from a medium to a very high probability of ensuring the viability of species," the statement said. Martin Raphael, deputy leader of the forest ecosystem management team appointed by Clinton, told The Associated Press that the team interprets "medium" to mean at least a 50 percent probability of ensuring the old-growth species would survive. Forest Service biologist Jack Ward Tho- mas, the leader of the team, could not be reached for comment Friday, his secretary said. Thomas and three other scientists — known as the "Gang of Four" — told Congress two years ago that such a level of protection would require logging culbatks to less than half the 1980s average of more than 4 billion board feet of timber on national forests in Oregon, Washington and Northern California. LIVING WITH AIDS Philo pair live life one day at a time By LOIS O'ROURKE Journal staff writer No one pictured in one of Michael Kane's photo albums, except himself, is still alive. Kane, 30, a Philo resident, and a native of New York, has AIDS. His live-in partner, Keith Bauer, 29, also has AIDS. Kane and Bauer did not infect each other. They both had AIDS when they met about a year ago in Forestville in Sonoma County. They moved to Mendocino County last June when they decided to get a home together. Kane has had mild symptoms of the syndrome since 1989 including thrush, chronic diarrhea and nausea. In January 1992, he developed esophageal candi- diasis. Since then, he has had no major infections, but his immune system has continued to weaken. "I feel low energy a lot of the time," Kane said. Bauer was asymptomatic until last month when he was diagnosed with lymphoma — a cancer directly attributable to the AID,S virus. He has been in Ukiah Valley Medical Center twice since his diagnosis and was scheduled for chemotherapy during the time of this interview. County a microcosm of nation By LOIS O'ROURKE Journal staff writer Mendocino County ranks first in rural California counties in incidence of Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome per 100,000 population, according to statistics compiled by the Public Health Department. Mendocino County AIDS Project Director Rosalie Anchordoguy said the county is a microcosm of the nation when it comes to AIDS statistics. See COUNTY, Bock Page The men are two of 89 people diagnosed with AIDS since the Public Health Department began keeping statistics in 1982. That's ihe year that the first cases of AIDS appeared in Mendocino County. "I've known I've been HTV positive since 1985," said Kane at his modest home with a beautiful view of the southwest portion of Anderson Valley off of Highway 128, west of Philo. When he first discovered he had the disease, he said, he became depressed. "I drank more, used drugs. My therapist called it a passive suicide. I didn't take care of myself," Kane said. But this February, Kane entered St. Helena Hospital's program for alcoholism. He stayed there a month and when he got home he found out his partner, Bauer, had lymphoma. "What's harder than having AIDS myself is all the people I've lost," Kane said. He has lived in both New York City and See PHILO, Back Page This is the first in a series of articles detailing how AIDS is affecting the lives of Mendocino County residents.

Their goal was to build a memorial for those who had died of AIDS, and to thereby help people understand the devastating impact of the AIDS epidemic. Today, more than five years later, the NAMES Project AIDS Memorial Quilt is a powerful visual reminder of the AIDS epidemic. More than 20,000 individual three-by-six foot memorial panels — each one remembering the life of someone who has died of complications related to AIDS — have been sewn together by friends, lovers and family members. The NAMES Project Foundation coordinates displays of portions of the quilt worldwide. Part of the quilt — about 500 panels — will be displayed in Ukiah June 12,13 and 14. It will be the first time the quill has been shown in Mendocino See QUILT, Back Page Cease-fire agreement signed between Bosnia, rebel Serbs By ROBERT H. REID The Associated Press SARAJEVO, Bosnia- Herzegovina — The Bosnian government and rebel Serbs signed an agreement late Saturday for a nationwide cease-fire beginning at noon (3 a.m. local time) Sunday and demilitarization of two besieged eastern Muslim towns. The agreement, which also provides for the demilitarization of the besieged Muslim enclaves of Sre- brenica and Zepa, was signed at the Sarajevo airport, which was heavy sniper fire throughout the day. There have been dozens of truces signed and broken in the year-old Bosnian conflict. But the truce Saturday was signed by Bosnian Serb's top military commander, Ratko Mladic, who came under increasing pressure this week to reach some agreement to stop the fighting. The government commander, (Sen. Sefer Halilovic, also signed the agreement, and French Gen. Philippe Morillon, commander of U.N. forces in Bosnia, signed as a witness. According to the agreement, it was "aimed at a cessation of armed attacks or any hostile acts within the whole territories of Bosnia- Herzegovina." It provides for the demilitarization of the eastern town of Srebre- nica on Monday, and of Zepa Wednesday, with the commanders to determine the precise boundaries of the demilitarized areas. All forces would be required to withdraw or surrender their weapons to U.N. troops, who would police the demilitarized areas. Despite the accord, shelling and heavy sniper fire continued Saturday night in Sarajevo. Sarajevo radio said two people were killed and 20 wounded in the city Saturday. The U.N. headquarters in the capital was hit twice by artillery fire in the evening. No casualties were reported. Sarajevo radio said earlier Saturday that Serb attacks on Zepa were continuing and the town's defenders were making a "superhuman effort" to resist. On Thursday, Mladic had signed an agreement allowing U.N. troops into Zepa, Mother's Day gifts both unusual and sweet By Dally Journal staff Today is Mother's Day — the day Moms are supposed to be honored, often with gifts. But oh, those gifts. Tokens of affection given to Ukiah area Moms have ranged from a funeral plot by a loving husband, puzzling pieces of string and wood as well as life itself. Mom's being Moms, however, loved each and every token of affection no matter how unusual. Madonna Wade, mother or two grown children said the most unusual gift she ever received for Mother's Day was a funeral plot. She said her husband, Jim, came home and said he bought her some property for Mother's Day and handed her an envelope. Inside the envelope was the deed for the burial plot. "It just happened that he bought it at the time. It was a plot next to my mother's and he knew I wanted to be next to my parents," Wade said. "I think it was thoughtful. After all, what do you get the woman that has everything?" she said. It was a board with a bunch of nails and a wad of string. I think I was supposed to wind the string around the nails or something. I never knew ... I still have it, wtiatever it is. —Patti Dye But not everyone gets a burial plot. Patli Dye, who works behind the cash register at the Hopland Superette, said her son Matthew once gave her something— she's not sure what—he made in school. "It was a board with a bunch of nails and a wad of string. I think I was supposed to wind the string around the nails or something. I never knew. I never asked him and he never told me. But I told him it was wonderful. I still have it, whatever it is." Bev Martin-Jones, who works for the county's Air Quality Control District, may have the answer to Dye's puzzle because she received a similar gift once. "My son gave me some string art one time. It's a little board with a bunch of nails in it. Then they wrap all this string around it. He took about eight different colors of thread. Now it's hanging on the wall," she said. Donna Roberts, who also works at the Air Quality office, said her favorite gifts have been picture frames with her sons' pictures in them. She gets all kinds of frames for all kinds of occasions, including Mother's Day. "Julian made me a cute ceramic picture frame this year," she said. Others have included frames out of canning jar lids and ones made from abstract paintings. "You get all these wonderful things from these kids. They come home with pictures in the most amazing livings," Roberts said. "You don't collect all these knicky knacky things until you have children," she noted. "Of See GIFTS, Back Page
