Arkansas Ponds «ooNnmirD FROM PAGE »c) worked especially well for Andy. Most fish caught averaged 3Vi to four pounds. The largest were about 5Vfe pounds; Andy reported catching a 5V4 pounder. He pointed out that most anglers were averaging 10-15 fish per day. Andy caught no fish weighing less than two pounds. -Two men fished from each boat, accompanied by a Mexican guide. They used flat bottomed fiberglass boats wjth comfortable arm chairs. All boats had 25 horsepower motors and trolling motors. Many boats on the lake did not have trolling motors, however. Parties got up at 3:45 each morning and fished until 6:00 p.m.'with'IMi hours off tor siesta. Days are very long this time of year in Mexico. Anyone planning such a trip should take at least two rods and reels. Because the brush is thick, most prefer level-wind casting tackle and stiff rods with fairly'strong line. . Plenty of plastic worms and heavy slip sinkers and hooks should, be taken, for the guides have no extra equipment.'Lures and tackle are difficult to find in Mexico. In early May, the temperature was in the 90 degree range, and the air was dry. Long-sleeved shirts and full-length trousers are needed to ward off the constant sun. Even a well-tanned individual can easily get too much sun during a long day on Lake Dominguez. This was Andy Lewis' first trip to Mexico. He described the country around the lake as covered with dry looking mesquite. The lake is thirty miles from the Pacific coast, near the town of El Forte. Los Moches, a town of about 100,000 inhabitants, is nearby. Andy's report from Mexico sounds good; in fact, one seldom hears a poor report from south of the border. It would be interesting to compare such a trip with a trip to Toledo Bend, Millwood, or Livingston -- all currently "hot" lakes close to home. Fifteen- bass limits weighing more than thirty pounds are commonly culled from daily catches of 25 or so. at Toledo Bend. In fact, much larger average weights are often recorded in the spring. But the Mexican lakes seem to be consistent producers of healthy-sized catches and well worth investigating. Stream Of Mud Tuesday, May 14 about noon there was a stream of silt-laden, muddy water running across Razorbaek Road at the corner of Nettleship Street. The mud was coming from a construction site west of Razorbaek and south of Nettleship. A witness asserted that the muddy stream was two feet deep for a time a little before noon. The water was substantially deeper than one foot at 12:15 p.m. When the heavy rain ended, a coating of slick mud and gravel was left across most of the street. Water from that area drains into a small and formerly clear and pretty stream which flows south and east to help form Town Branch, which runs eventually into the West Fork of White River, near Highway 16. Town Branch has provided many generations of children a place to get their toes wet and to catch crayfish and small fish. In fact, an occasional adult angler may be seen stubbornly seeking catfish, bass, or perch from its water.

"Thirty doctors said he would never race again." said Dr. Joannides. "Only Salt's phenomenal determination to race again has put him back in the cockpit. "It is a medical miracle."

He started racing motorcycles at 14--when he was strong enough to hold a motorcycle over his head--then came sprints, hydroplanes and the high-powered championship thunderbolts. He finished 33rd--last place-- in both the 1972 and 1973 Indianapolis 500s. Then came last year's horrifying crash. "When I reached the hospital, they told me he was breathing." the elder Wallher said. "The first words he said to me were. 'Dad, somebody hit me.' " The mother reached his bedside shortly afterward. "He looked at me and said, 'It hurts, Mom,' " she recalled^ "I was so relieved that he was still alive." Dr. Joannides said there was original concern that Salt ever would be able to grip a steering wheel again. "He fooled all the doctors." the physician said.

TO ALL VOTERS OF WASHINGTON COUNTY Dear Voter: As you are probably aware, I cm a candidate for the Democratic nomination for Sheriff of Washington County, Arkansas. Let me assure you that I am not a politician. My entrance into this race is motivated solely by my awareness of the problems now existing and my very serious concern that Washington County be served by a Sheriff who is efficient, qualified and reliable. After my experience as a Deputy Sheriff under the incumbent, I found that I could not reconcile my personal sense of right and wrong with what was, ond according to the Grand Jury report, still is happening in the office of Washington County's leading law enforcement officer. My disagreement with his thinking led to my separation from the Sheriff's office, and 1 went into private enterprise in the field where ! am best qualified-LAW ENFORCEMENT. As a result, in the recent past, I have been a part owner of a privately owned industrial security organize ton which has provided security service to many of the more important industries and businesses in our area, and t have likewise provided private investigative services to those who chose to avail themselves of my services. Because of my strong feelings about sound administration of public office, 1 have decided to run for Sheriff of Washington County. 1 no longer have any interest ir any former businesses as 1 am devoting full time to this campaign. This involves a financial sacrifice for me, but I have been raised in this community and the citizens have treated me well. When other people can sacrifice their time and energy to be members of the Board of Directors of this City, to serve on its various boards and commissions or otherwise discharge a civic duty, I feel that I, still a relatively young man, have an obligation yet to fulfill in the public interest, and being familiar with the operation of the Washington County Sheriff's office, I feel that this is where my duty lies. I am a graduate of Fayetteville High School with three years of college at the University of Arkansas. I have completed my military service in the United States Army with the 306th Civil Affairs Group. I was a Washington County Deputy Sheriff for two years. I completed the Seminar in Public Safety, Texas Technological University in 1970. t am a graduate of the Arkansas Law Enforcement Training Academy; further, I am a graduate of the United States Department of Justice Course in Identification and Classification of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs. I om a member of the Arkansas Law Enforcement Officers Association, a graduate of the Criminal Procedure Course conclusively by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and I have taken the Criminal Procedure Course at the University of Arkansas School of law ot Foyettevilie, Arkansas. I believe these facts will amply demonstrate my qualifications and my sincerity. I am asking you to support me in my effort to become the democratic nominee for Sheriff and you therefore have a right to know what I stand for. So let me pledge to you that if I am elected: 1. The Sheriff's office will provide efficient County law enforcement to all areas of Washington County. NO SECTION WILL BE NEGLECTED IN FAVOR OF ANOTHER. I will place a responsible Deputy on permanent duty in every major community in the County, and he will work with and cooperate with any local police who may have jurisdiction. · 2. The Sheriff's office will be operated with honesty and integrity and the account of that office will be open to public inspection. There will be no use of public property for private purposes. No prisoner in my custody will be released after having been arrested unless so ordered by the court. Nor will there be any "disappearances" of property held either in trust for the public or as evidence in prosecution. 3. No evidence of any nature will be suppressed or minimized in an effort to xus- trate the ends of justice, and no prisoners will be held in jail beyond the period of time in which they should be presented to the Court for arraignment for the purpose of profiting from the $2 per day food allowance which the Sheriff currently receives. 4. No private utility bills will be paid out of public funds while I am Sheriff of Washington County. 5. I will pay all gasoline bills incurred for my private use or that of members of rny family with my money and not the County's. 6. At any regular and specified times I will make myself available in every major community in Washington County to discuss with the citizens any problem the community may have. There are many other areas of law enforcement that I would like to discuss with you but I hope that this letter will help you to understand my position on these matterss without the necessity of my pointing theem out specifically. To summerize, let me soy that I am seeking the democratic nomination as Sheriff of Washington County because I sincerely believe that high personal and professional qualities MUST be restored to this office. I believe that I have these qualifications. I con assure you that my motives are sincere, and I represent no one other than the voters of Washington County. .Will you please support me in my effort to obtain the nomination. Sincerely- BILL MURRAY Pol. Ad Paid For By Terrene* W. Spencer
