Wednesday, March 17, 1976 Pago 9 Uah Foundation Reports Federal OuMay In Summit Colinfty ' Federal outlays in Summit County during the 1975 fiscal year totaled $7,632,000. This fact was reported by Utah Foundation, the private tax research organization. According to the Foun-' aaiion analysis, reaerai expenditures in Summit County last year were equal to $1,165 per capita or approximately ap-proximately 22.6 percent of total personal income in the County,, By way of comparison, com-parison, Federal outlays throughout the State during fiscal 1975 totaled $1,788,878,000 and were equal to $1,500 per capita or 32.2 percent of personal income. Federal outlays include all Federal spending for salaries (civilian and military), retirement and other employee em-ployee benefits, Federal purchases, contracts, and construction, grants-in-aid to state and local units, and other Federal . payments made to institutions and i nlia1nnln ' Miuiviuucua. - The Foundation study -observes that Utah's share of total Federal spending has declined during the past five years. Between 1970 and 1975, Federal outlays in Utah have risen by 55 percent, compared com-pared with an increase of 72 percent for the nation' as a whole. Although Utah realizes a slight "net gain" from Federal operations, the State suffers a "net loss" when such Federa expenditures are financed through added borrowing. Foundation analysts point out that' Utahns pay out more than twice as much in Federal taxes to meet interest costs on Jthe national debt as individuals in-dividuals and institutions in the State receive back in Federal interest payments. Thus, additions to the debt and increases ' in interest costs tend to take money out-of out-of the State. : ; The Federal Budget for the 1976 fiscal year indicates that there will be a deficit of approximately $76 billion in this year's operations. Based on the 1975 experience, the Foundation report estimates that the net effect of this prospective deficit will be "a $12 million annual drain from individuals and business firms in Utah." Nationally, income security payments (social ; security public assistance, retirement, etc.) have surpassed sur-passed national defense as the main object of Federal spending programs. Last year income security payments throughout the United States totaled $104.2 billion, or 31.9 percent of all Federal outlays. Total expenditures ex-penditures for national defense and international relations, on the other hand, amounted to $88.3 billion" or . 27.0 percent of all Federal spending in fiscal 1975. In Utah, national defense still is the largest single area of Federal activity, but it is being rapidly ' replaced by -w -t- r w 'fkw h .. .n ' TV . - " ' -unr ft mm i VI It A.. . : i fr t hotihg: - u - mm mm m. m mm mw mm m mm mm m m w WAe SP&ietb Choice fcfc ai at pcuime Q)inenp ' (Pfien 7:00 a m . to 40:00 fi.tn y.

((' fish Wednesday income security as the major area of Federal spending within the State, Between 1970 and 1975, Federal outlays in Utah for income security climbed by $287 million, or 153 percent. During this same period, Federal spending in the State for national defense activities rose by. only 21 percent. The Foundation study also indicates that while Federal programs and activities may have a stimulating effect on local economies, they often prove to be liabilities to state and local government operations. This is especially ' true in programs that create a large increase in Federal employment but no corresponding increase in taxable wealth and income in the private sector of the economy. . Studies by Utah Foundation have shown that the typical family, in Utah pays ; only about one-half of the taxes needed to finance essential state and local services (such as schools, sewers, roads, water, police and fire protection, etc.) used by the family. The other half of the cost for such services typically is borne by the taxes paid by business and industry. in-dustry. The report concludes that Federal programs which do not stimulate growth in the private sector, are likely to result in reduced local services ser-vices or higher taxes to support such services. : (to is Enough Efv( X HI by Henry Louis "Perfectly dreadful!" the woman said. "Sheer stupidity's what it is. I tell you, some people !'r Her husband, or the man with her, said nothing, only watched. She was shaking her head; she was right. We were in the subterranean garage of Three Kings Condominium, Building 4, bundled in heavy fur (they were) and a down vest a shade more blunt than fire engine red. A garbage , truck was blocking the entrance-exit, and the men connected with it were running to and from the Laundry Room water spigots, yelling, hoses in hands or hands in pockets. One of them, apparently Number One, in decibel count if nothing else, wore a sheepskin cap and way saying the same kind of things as the woman (only where she was PG, this guy was somewhere between R and X) as he hung from the back of the truck where the steel, garbage-eating mouth was hut. The inside the, garbage was on fire. Our respective cars were warming up and we were standing between their ends which were spewing out exhaust which, coupled with the smoulder odor of garbage, was, to say the least, asphyxiant; so I shut mine down and took the stairway to fresh air, if not heaven. In no time the man and woman had joined me. "I understand you are a writer," the woman said, not asking, and thankfully so because no answer exists; and I filled the gap by mumbling something about using the term loosely. "Well, write an article about this carelessness for The Newspaper. Write a letter," she said. "I'm going to!" "What?" "Write something about this. It's dreadful. Something shuld be done." "'I"8jppe6." """" 1 , i- - ltatti itt!Pni going -to! " She walked off and into hecpnaq. " ' ' Ah, I hope she does, I thought. "r , Well, folks; to make a short story even shorter, she didn't I suppose 1 could give her the benefit of the doubt and say maybe she did and it didn't get printed, but that's neither here nor there nor what I want to talk about. Maybe she was the one responsible for the whole mess; maybe she wasn't. But, no matter who was the culprit, we have now been belatedly brought to the point of this pieces i , Each building of condominia has in its subtarrane,, to one side of the entrance-exit, two large brown sliding metal doors: on one is printed Firewood, in yellow; in the same color on the other, Trash. Behnd Trash you will f nd an assortment of normal size silver garbage cans, none of them shiny. Like in a puzzle in Children's Corner, one of them is different. Can you find the different sivler can? Engolf Deros of Hamas', the man behind Summit Valley Sanitation, certainly hopes so; the people staying in the building hope so; the condominia owners hope so; the companies .holding insurance policies on the condos hope so; and of course the Park City Fire Department hopes so: but unless on one of the cans is a lid, you are doomed to remain in Children's Corner, confused. See, for each Trash room there is but one lid, and on it, printed in red capitals, ASHES ONLY. The problem is that that lid is often leaning against a wall hidden. Someone said that perhaps a note on or near each hearth reminding tenants to douse and separate the ashes before tossing them might be the solution. But look at the doors marked Trash and Firewood across both of them in bold white is PLEASE KEEP DOORS CLOSED, almost always left wide. Look, I don't like to follow orders either,' but sometimes it helps. The woman didn't ask me to write something about the careless tossing of ashes, she told me to. Mr. Deros says it happens all the time. ' MOANA? ',,.' Moss Expects Quick Confirmation Senator Frank E. Moss says he expects a quick confirmation of Mrs. Diana L. Dougan of Salt Lake City who has been nominated, by President Ford to serve as a member of the board of directors of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. Mrs. Dougan appeared before a Senate Subcommittee Sub-committee on Communications Com-munications March 10, for a public hearing on her nomatinion. Sen. Moss, a member of the subcommittee, sub-committee, co-chaired the hearing with Sen. John Pastore of Rhode Island. In a statement in Mrs. Dougan's behalf, Moss said, "I believe Mrs. Dougan is uniquely qualified to fill a vital role on this board. I would like to point out that at the present time there is no representation on the board from the large geographical area stretching between Chicago and the west coast. The citizens of this nation who reside in these western states deserve a voice on this important board." Moss said Mrs. Dougan has already attained national prominence through her work as a member of the board of directors of the National Friends of Public Broadcasting. Broad-casting. "I am impressed," he said, "that in addition to the obvious commitment of Mrs. Dougan to public television, she would bring to the CPB board professional Knowledge and expertise based on her many years of experience with a local licensee." Mrs. Dougan is presently serving as chairman of Friends of KUED, a fund-raising fund-raising group for the educational TV station at the Mrs. Dougan was introduced in-troduced to the subcommittee by Sen. Moss, Sen. Jake Garn of . Utah, and Congressman Harley v Staggers of West , Virginia who is chairman of the House Communications Committee. Moss said the full Commerce Com-merce Committee of the Senate would take up Mrs. Dougan's nomination in its next executive session. He said he expected she would be confirmed "perhaps next week." "As a member of the committee, I've got one vote in my pocket," Moss said, "and Mrs. Dougan certainly has mine." flTgiTlTriTiTlr:Mte It can make you feel better. Call me.

MUSIC NOTES by JayMeehan Park City's boom ski-season has affected the local live music scene to such an extent that a few Saturdays ago music buffs could choose between a couple of electric country-oriented bands, a traditional accoustic string band, a vocal duo, a jazz act, and a folk singer who performs in a half-dozen languages. During the next two weeks this column will attempt an overview of the Park City music scene. Country music's national boom is manifisted to such an extent that even jazz guitarist J. D. Moffett of the Car 19, includes material written . by.Waylon Jennings, Tom T. Hall, and Billy Joe Shaver. Country's time is here and Park City is very fortunate to have two clubs devoted almost exclusive to its various forms: The Club Annex and the recently re-opened C'est Bon Lounge. Operated by the local Joe; Doug; Billy; Bear; Craze ; Wayne co-op s the Club Annex has featured Salt Lake based Back Home the last few months, giving Park City its first.regular quality country-rock act. And quality is indeed the proper word. Back Home's ins trumen tall uniqueness, no fiddle or steel guitar, is soon forgotten: as the twin lead guitar interplay of Gary Locust and Steve Burton coupled with Scott Sweeten's drums and Lee Smith's bass bounce through dance-oriented sets, heavily laden with progressive country and tasty original tunes. And then there's the vocals. All four sing. Damned well. Harmonies, soft and floating, or biting, with the hard edge of country blues These four dudes who interpret the Willie Waylon; Jerry Jeff sound better than those aggressively promoted outfits; this quartet of country-pickin' funkys honorary locals. They've become part of us. And now they're gonna be gone for a while. A gig in Lyman, Whyoming followed by a month in Salt Lake City will be capped off with a date backing up Baldamar Huerta (also known asd Freddy Fender) on May - 1st at the Salt Palace. Don't worry though they'll be back in Park City. Back home. If that isn't enough, a few weeks back, ex-Phoenix ex-Phoenix club owner and Salt Lake City promoter Marshall Marinakis along with partners Mont and Jeannie Rosenberg re-opened the Cest Bon Lounge and immediately began booking such diverse country groups as the famed Deseret String Band, a group whose expertise lies in Scots; Irish, southern traditional, early western-swing, western-swing, Mormon pioneer, and Deseret territory mc'if:yw Wranglers a" western-' swing ;bluegrass group and the subject of the remainder of this articls. Laurie Bogart, lead singer and accoustic; ac-coustic; rhythm guitar, to borrow a line Waylon Jennings used on Jessi Colters first RCA album, 'sings as good as she looks and looks uncommonly good.' Woody Whitney; fiddle; Mike Freed; steel guitar, 5-string banjo; and Al Lundquist on mandolin, all out of Salt Lake Citys early 70's bluegrass schene, provede the lead instrumental solos. James Whitfields drumming and strong vocal lines, along with Steve Hansen's bass round out the group. If your taste runs to lively country dance music of the Bob Wills, Ernest Tubb, Hank Williams variety, then no doubt the Weber River Wranglers are definitely your slice of of zucchini. Response to their music has been enthusiastic enough to at least quarantee their semi-regular return to the C'est Bon Lounge. I say semi-regular because Marshall likes to mix up his acts. Recently he promoted Salt Lake Concerts featuring Jerry Jeff Walker, Charlie Daniels, Tim Wiesberg, Tom 'Waits,'.' Flash Cadillac and Harvey Mandell. Those who performed per-formed at his Phoenix club read like a who's who of popular music. Signatures that would put Hoyt Axton in the C'est Bon for two nights in P April are close to being affixed to the contractual line. Staying open all year long is also in the works for both of these fine establishments: The Club Annex and the C'est Bon Lounge. The afore mentioned J. D. Moffett has been one of Utahs truly class guitar players for years, and has been playing Park City on and off since 1970. Until his current stint at the Car 19 though, his guitar work was all we were allowed to witness as he usually backed female singer combos.. But that was then. Now, things are different. Performing Per-forming downstairs at the Car 19 J.D.'s music is now entirely his won. He sings, too, with a very effective, strong macho-base type of untutored un-tutored vocal delivery. The material: the entire seven yards. What you want is what you get. Accompanied by Kevin Johansen on guitar J.D. runs through material as diverse as Tony Joe White, John Lee Hooker, Lerner and Lowe, Willie Nelson and Jr. Walker. Early, pre fame Wes Montgomery tunes show some of his many varied roots. An interesting individual with a degree in banking, Mr. Moffitt teaches courses at the University of Utah in Jazz Guitar Ensemble: . Fo r non-students, an easy way to audit this workshop would be to either acquire a membership mem-bership card to the Car 19 or a friend with one and kick back for a special musical treat. J.D.
