There's one thing I miss and that is my friends at my old school. reading aerial photos and conducting on the ground studies to determine the area and types of habitat inundated by the dam. The Bonneville Power Adminis- tration is paying for the study which will set priorities for wildlife mitiga- tion. Congress required power plan- ning, fish and wildlife protection, mitigation and enhancement by power producers in the 1980 Northwest power Planning Conservation Act. Citizen comment will be incorpo- rated into the final report which will be submitted tot he Northwest Power Planning Council. The council then set mitigation objective for Chief Joseph Dam in relation to other wild- life mitigation goals it sets within the four-state Columbia River basin. Specific mitigation projects can- not be developed until the council acts on the plan. Written comments will be ac- cepted until January 6, 1992.

(Public water systems are systems that have two or more permanent connections.) Water is tested for the presence of coliform bacteria. Coliform group bacteria are not necessarily disease producers but are reliable indicators of organic pollution. If coliform bacteria are staff recommends that water from private wells be tested at once a year. Water also should be tested if there is an unusual taste or odor, it there is continued diarrheal illness in .the family, or any item surface water drains into the well. The Okanogan County Health District has a state certified laboratory where coliform testing is done. Growers approve higher search assessments Washington State growers of apples and stone fruits other than cherries have voted to increase as- sessments to fund research for those commodities. In a referendum just completed by the Washington State Department of Agriculture, apple producers voted 865 to 748 in favor of the assessment increase. The assessment rate will increase from the current 25 cents per ton to 50 cents in 1992, 75 cents in 1993 and $1 in 1994 and thereafter. Growers of stone fruits other than cherries voted to voted 150 to 100 in favor of increasing their current as- sessment of 25 cents per to $1 per ton starting with the 1992 crop. Both current assessment rates have been in place since 1974. About 47 percent of the state's commercial apple growers and about 22 per cent of the growers of stone fruits other than cherries voted in the referendum. Only a majority of those voting was required for approval. The assessments for other tree fruits were not a part of the referen- dum. Cherries currently have an as- sessment rate of $2 per ton. Pear growers pay $1 per ton for research. Assessments in 1990 totalled ap- proximately $840,000. Under the new assessment rates, the annual grower funds available for research would rise to an estimated $2.5 million by 1994. The research funds are adminis- tered by the nine grower member Washington Tree Fruit Research Commission. Research projects sup- ported by grower assessments en- compass cultural practices, storage and handling technology, pest con- trol and more. - BEST FARES- Three weeks advanced purchase necessary Some Christmas Space Available (Some Restrictions) I rerben:l I| dI-'" r a  'e I Own a -' Hammond or Baldwin Organ for ?
