"* —^ Tense but safe landing — fire trucks escort a plane along the Ukiah Airport runway after emergency landing. Tense lesson in emergency landing The pilot of a two-seater Mooney 201 had a tense lesson in emergency landings Monday when the plane's landing gear indicator failed to light. The pilot, 42-year-old Perry Beal, has been flying for two years and was on a training flight from Sacramento to Ukiah to keep his license current. Passenger and flight teacher Harold Luse, 31, was able to see that the rear landing gear was down, but the dash light didn't indicate that all the wheels were down. Since they couldn't see the front wheel, the pilot called the airport just minutes before landing to say that he might have a problem. Four Ukiah fire engines and the police arrived at the airport and watched as the plane made a safe landing. "No. No, I wasn't nervous," Beal said, adding a nervous laugh to the meaning of his words. • Police and Fire Log Pot raids yield one arrest A Covelo man was arrested last Friday on marijuana cultivation charges. Sheriff's marijuana investigators reported Monday afternoon that they had arrested Jaime Cortez Hernandez, 32. Hernandez was arrested Friday morning after deputies served a search warrant at a Little Valley residence. They discovered 15 marijuana plants ranging in height up to seven feet. Raiders from the state Campaign Against Marijuana Planting seized 560 pot plants found Monday growing in the area of Iron Peak, near Laytofrville. Raiders combined four scattered garden sites, seizing irrigation equipment and garden tools, but making no arrests. Fire Calls Ukiah fire lighters responded to the folio nc calls Monday: •8:43 a.m request for medical aid at 173 Seminary Drive. •1:54 p.m. standby at the airport during an emergency landing. The aircraft landed without incident. •No time given for a call to a vehicle fire at the North State Street overpass. • • 3 V' 1 • •4 •••'if FIRE Hot and humid weather can feel even hotter The "heat index" is a measure of how hot the temperature feels to the average person at various combinations of actual temperature and relative humidity.

Money-market fund: Merrill Lynch Ready Assets: <0 day average yield" ft !<> By TOBY YOUNG Journal Staff Writer Caltrans expects to finish an experimental solar-powered sprinkler project along the Ukiah interchanges next month. The $165,000 irrigation system is being installed to water the trees and shrubbery around seven of the U.S. 101 on-ramps in the, Ukiah area. - ,., ,, •.;, .';.•..'..,',..,'.,, , ...„•., Although the sprinkler system will be powered by solar energy, conduit for 120-voltage power is also included. If the experimental system fails, the controllers for the sprinklers can easily be wired for electricity. Don Burghart, Caltrans resident engineer, says the reason the experimental system is being tested here because it can be replaced with regular voltage without much trouble. If the project works, Caltrans will install similar solar systems in rural areas where electricity is -HEARINGS (Continued from page 1) duced a vision of "a secret government, directed principally by National Security Council staffers, accountable to not a single elected official, including apparently the president himself — a shadowy government with its own air force, its own navy, its own fund-raising mechanism, and the ability to pursue its own ideas of national interest, free from all checks and balances and the law itself." Sen. Warren Rudman, R-N.H., said that "we cannot promote democracy abroad while undermining it at home, and that is what these men did." "There was too much secrecy and deception," said Rep. Lee Hamilton, D-Ind., chairman of the House investigating committee. "The president did not know what his own staff was doing; staff did not keep senior officials informed;npolicies were often contradictory." The committee leaders offered their own summations after the final public witness, Defense Secretary Caspar Weinberger, testified that "the interests of (he United States were damaged overall" by Reagan's decision to make secret arms sales to Iran. Weinberger and Secretary ol State George Shultz both said they fought hard against that policy but failed to convince the president. Weinberger said the way to avoic such damage in the future is "not to embark on a policy of this kind.' Rudman singled out Poindexter for special condemnation. "It is clear that Admiral Poindexter attempted to deny the State Department, the Defense Department and White House staff the information necessary to enable them to engage in a review," he said. "With the exception of Admiral Poindexter, every high-level U.S. official who testified statec that Admiral Poindexter did not have the authority to approve the diversion; that the diversion was improper and possibly tillegal and that the president would not have approved of the diversion had he unavailable. The savings expected by using solar powered controllers are both in the construction costs and the maintenance. CalTrans is saving about $30,000 by installing the solar controllers instead of the electrical wiring. Mike Yancheff, the designer for the project from the Eureka Cal- trans office, said what will mainly determine the feasibility and success of the solar system is the amount Caltrans'can save,in maintenance costs. "Our maintenance staff is being stretched more and more," said Yancheff. "The feature that is criti- cal is the amount of maintenance it requires." The sprinklers will be operated by ten computer controllers near the location of the sprinklers. The solar panels will be installed at the same location of the controllers, Yancheff said. Eight of the solar panels are being manufactured in Willits, and two of a different design are being made in Texas. The five Ukiah .interchanges that are included in the project are at N. State, Perkins and Gobbi streets, Talmage Road and state Hwy 253. The other two interchanges are at El Robo and Robinson Creek Road. (Continued from page 1) How soon and at what cost the Eureka Southern can repair the Arnold Tunnel are key questions for the future of rail transport on the North Coast. The railroad is already in Chapter 11 bankruptcy with its operations directed by a court appointed trustee. A report released by the California Public Utilities Commission earlier this year concluded that if the Eureka Southern ceased operations permanently, the Northwestern Pacific from Willits south, and the California' Western Railroad, operators of the Skunk, would also inevitably be out of business.
