He was attacking the avarice, gluttony and sensuality of his time. He depicted the passengers and crew of a ship enjoying the sensual pleasures but ignoring the course of the ship or the dangers ahead. Appearently this ship landed in Washington D.C. and the fools made their home in the offices of the Social Security Administration. It was shocking to read recently that a con- victed murderer in Soledad Prison in California, on a claim of mental impairment, is receiving $195. a month in Social Security disability payments. Shock turned to disbelief when David Berkowitz, the convicted "Son of Sam" killer is getting $300 a month for the same reason. Considering that Berkowitz is only 27 and could easily spend 50 years in prison he might be paid at least $180,000 from funds taken from working Americans. How many more criminal inmates are receiving monthly checks? Good question. It isn't difficult to understand why the Social Security System is reported to be going bankrupt. And it isn't difficult to understand why millions of retired, hard working Americans are struggling to survive on less than $300 a month. The fuzzy brained bureaucrats are shelling out our tax dollars not only to pay Social Security payments to prisoners but also they are paying hefty salaries to criminals while teaching them job skills. One rapist got a salary of nearly $10,000 to learn to become a plumber and can't get out of prison to start looking for a job until 2003. Administrators weren't even aware of the release dates of those they lavished time and money on. An armed robber, not eligible for parole until 1991, was given a salary of more than $9,300 a year while training as a library technician. The list goes on and on. This is a crime and we the taxpayers are the victims. The answer: Use our voices loud and clear, especially in this election year. It is up to each one of us to do our part to try to prevent the "Ship of Fools" from wrecking the Ship of State which is on the verge of spiritual and economic disaster. Letters to the editor Playing "pork barrel" F_xlitor: Just what the heck are our County Supervisors pulling on us this time? Instead of carrying over to next year's budget...or refunding the 2.6 million surplus county funds back to the taxpayers ...Supervisors have decided to play "pork barrel" politics by dividing the loot up and spending it on pet projects in their respective districts. This is the first time in Sonoma County's history that large sums of money will be given "Carte Blanche" to each Supervisor. This act of unsound judgement is a discredit to responsible decision making. It should not be tolerated by the electorate, and to think Supervisors have the gag to raise dump fees 300 percent when at the same time they have millions in surplus money to blow. Sincerely, Former County Supervisor Philip L. Joerger Cash for cans Editor: The Woman's Im- provement Club would like to remind all that it is once again collecting aluminum cans. During the fund drive for the "Miracle of Vienna", the Club temporarily in- terrupted its collection of cans so that they might be gathered by the band for its project. With the successful com- pletion of that program the Club is now resuming active collection and would ap- preciate it very much if everyone would keep us in mind and give us a call at 894- 3495 when you have pick,'l)S for us. Every penny of the money realized is, as always, used for local civic im- provement projects. Ruth Oedlng Chairman Cash for Cans Bosco blasts Brown administration Assemblyman Douglas H. Bosco said today that the Brown administration "has acted in the most callous and irresponsible manner possible" by refusing to sign legislation that .would require opening the salmon season in state waters for the first two weeks of July. Bosco said Fish and Game Director Charles ldlerton announced publicly that he would recommend that Governor Brown sign the measure; however "it now appears that Brown is going to wait until the last minute before allowing the legislation to become law." Such a tactic, according to Bosco, would effectively destroy the measure, in that fishing would be delayed until the tenth of July. The Governor has 12 days to review legislation before he must either sign it or allow it to become law without his signature. Bosco said hi asked Governor Brown to,either immediately sign the bill, AB 2857 or veto it so that the legislature could override the veto. "This measure went through the entire legislature without a single "no" vote," Bosco said, "and I am confident we could get a two4hirds vote to override a veto. It is important that action be taken immediately and I would rather have him veto the bill than play cat and mouse with us for ten days." Bosco said Brown's inaction was a " slap in the face" for local fishermen and showed "indefensible bad faith in dealing with the legislature on a matter of utmost significance to thousands of small fisher- men." In addition to reopening the salmon season, the measure would also make gillnetting of salmon and steelhead illegal in all state rivers and raise the penalty from a misdemeanor-$.q)0 fine to a felony-$SO00,or up to one year in prison, or both. The bill is an urgency measure, and is co-authored by Senator Barry Keene (D- Elk).

Reduction of timber cut "inse Congressman Don Clausen recently called President Jimmy Carter's proposal to reduce the timber cut in National Forests "in- sensitive" saying that its implementation would put many people in the Redwood Empire and throughout the nation out of work. After pointing out to the President the adverse economic impact his proposal would have, he asked that there be no reduction in the timber cut in Six Rivers and Mendocino National Forests. Clausen. in making this request, cited the economic conditions following the expansion of the Redwood National Park: "The recent expansion of the Redwood National Park, at the expense of private timber land, has already had a severe economic impact on our area, putting countless people out of work," he pointed out. "One of the principal hopes we had for a new source for the timber necessary to sustain the jobs threatened by the park expansion was an increased timber cut in the nearby Six Rivers National Forest," he added. "The Redwood National Park Expansion Legislation you signed contained a provision requiring that a study be made recommending ways this could be accomplished. Any reduction in harvest often levels would be severely privateOr detrimental to the North could Coast's economy," timber Clausen was unimpressed which hi by Carter's proposal to ployedin replace the reduced timber industrY. production in National He als0 i Forests with increased cuts portance in State and private forests.
