Edmund Brown Jr. clearly showed his contempt for the rights and needs of farmers in double-barreled action Wednesday. First the Brown Administration forces in the Assembly killed Sen. Barry Keene's bill which would have banned boating and fishing on the 12- mira stretch of Dry Creek from Warm Springs D;Jm to the Russian River. Dry Creek Valley fi rmers and both proponents and opponents of the V/arm Springs Dam project had joined in backing fne Keene bill. Then, late Wednesday night, Governor Brown ignored the wishes of Central Valley farmers and vetoed the bill which would have demanded that. the federal government proceed with the filling of New Melones Reservoir. There are good reasons for both restricting fishing and boating on Dry Creek and the filling of New Melones Reservoir. The Dry Creek Farmers had asked for the Keene bill because they fear an invasion of fishermen and boating enthusiasts once Dry Creek has a year-round flow. Private property rights would be threatened and streamside crops trampled if there is no control on Dry Creek ac- cess. The only organizations against the bill were the Sierra Club and the Izaak Walton League. The Keene bill would have placed a three-year moratorium on fishing and boating on Dry Creek. This would have given the Department of Fish and Game time to evaluate fishing conditions of the stream, and to consider proper rules for fishing there. It would have also given time t o consider the impact of boating on streamside ranches. As for New Melones, Governor Brown came out in favor of white water rafters as opposed to the interests of farmers and power-users in the area served by the New Melones project. Filling the reservoir would have enabled the project to be used to its fullest in regard to flood control and water storage. The hydroelectric power plant at the dam can't be used unless the reservoir is filled, thus choking off a valuable source of energy ivst to satisfy those who want a white water nlayground. The Federal Government may overrule Governor Brown On filling New Melones, but the Dry Creek bill probably will have to wait for a change in the political climate at Sacremento. We commend Senator Keene, the Sonatas County Board of Supervisors and all others in the county who worked for the Dry Creek bill. We hope they will continue their efforts on behalf of the Dry Creek farmers. ('From the Press Democrat.) Letters to the editor Thank-you Editor: I would like to thank all of the concerned people who sent an entry to the Sonoma County People for Economic Opportunity "Name the Fleet" Contest. I wish we could thank each person individually who took the time to suggest a name to us. Each person obviously gave much time and effort to their suggestion. In choosing the final winner, "S.O.S. Provide-A- Ride", he panel considered many of the entries very seriously. Again, thank you all - we wish that each person could have won ! Sincerely, Celinda R Program Director Senior Opportunities & Services, Correction In an article which ap peared in the Cioverdale Reveille on June 11, en- UUed "Vets Job Falre," Steve Congdon was quoted as having said "I estimated that each individual saved approximately $25,000 in transportation costs..." The correct amount should have been $25. Rabies clinic in S.R.

Sonoma County is a rabies indemic area. It is vital that all pets be innoculated against this fatal disease. County Animal Regulation had over 1500 bites reported last year. Unvaccinated and unlicensed dogs cause serious rabies control problems in Sonoma County especially when they are allowed to run at large. Low cost clinics give dog owners the op- portunily fo conveniently vaccinate and license their dogs. Sonoma County Animal Regulation urges the public to vaccinate their pets and license all dogs thai are at leasl four months of age. Calendar of events Wed.

"'The heavy rains of Ihe winler season have had beueficial effects on small rodent population, the principal source of food for the Weslern Rattlesnake. which is Ihe only rattlesnake species found in northern California," he continued. The Weslern Rattlesnake is easy to identify and should not be confused with the harmless gopher + snake or kingsnake. Specimens of both snakes are on display in the BLM Ukiah District of- fice. 555 Leslie. The snake averages three to three and one-half feet in length with a series of circular brown blolches separated by lighter cream-colored bars along t he backside of its body. The last five Io six inches of its tail has a series of well defined cream-colored rings which end with the rattle. In the past, most snake biles have occurred when the animal was teased with a stick or handled by the ob- server. Therefore, if one uses common sense, there is less chance of getting bitten. This snake is primarily defensive and does not attack people or chase after them.
