By Norman Baxter: About two weeks ago I wrote of the Grebes that fell out of the sky, in the early 1930's and again in Delta in January of this year. What a coincidence! Mrs. Wilma Coates at the Wah-Wa-h Ranch called to tell me terrible the that after windstorm on April 1st, there were many Grebes lying around the Ranch, dead.

Carriger said that since only one property owner.. ..Circle 4 Farms was James notified, they would be the only one effected. Mayer called foul. "A legal notice in the paper is notification," he said. "We are relying on our bonding attorney to set it up legally," Leo Kanell, Beaver County Attorney, added. Green Diamond Ranch presented a petition to withdraw property from the district. Kyle Jones, Green Diamond attorney, described the Notice as deficient, vague, and ambiguous. Concern is that while the roads are of no benefit to the Ranch, language in the Notice regarding "benefit directly or indirectly" does not protect against future assessment which could amount to s?

Are the pledged properties otherwise mortgaged? 4. Bonds are signed by the County Commissioners. Does that not obligate the County pay in the event of default? 5. Bonding status (bank qualification) changes for Beaver or any other county after $10 million in bonds has been issued in one year. With $6.5 million in GO Bonds for the jail (additional Lease Revenue Bonds will not be issued until 1998) and $3.58 million for the road project, what happens if the county has an emergency? 6. Why was B. L. M. And other public land included in I the district? Does Circle 4 own more than 50 of the district, by acre, if those public lands are taken out? If so, does this eliminate the choice for other property owners in the district to opt out? 7.

Did Commissioner Marshall actually write the letter which was published last week? Johnson agreed that the Notice lacks detail. With Commissioner Sullivan still hospitalized and Commissioner Marshall excused earlier in the day for health reasons, Johnson was unable to act. He said he would discuss the issue with Commissioner Marshall and, with his concurrence, reschedule the April 21st protest hearing for 2:00 P.M. on May 5th, with written protests due on May 2nd, "or the Notice of Intention to form the district will be withdrawn and the process will start over from the beginning " Editor's Note: The legal notice remains on page 5. The Monitor was not instructed to discontinue publication. Best information available is that it is necessary to contact the bond attorney before making a change, and that could not be done in time for this week's paper. The good news?
