News Tribune, The (Newspaper) - February 17, 1975, Fort Pierce, Florida The News Tribune Monday February 17 1975 Page 2 Army Kills Women Inmates Birds Rampage But Plenty Left PADUCAH Ky UPK About of an estimated 1.5 million blackbirds were killed near this western Kentucky city over the weekend when sprayed with a soapy detergent which removed oil from their feathers and skin and they died of exposure But there's slill an unbelievable number of birds said City Manager William Howerton It doesn't look like we made a dent in killing them There's still plenty flying around Eighty miles southeast of this Ohio River city at Ky Army officials are faced with a similar problem but the Defense Department wants to make sure the chemical would not harm humans We expect some type of decision for a go-ahead today or day at the said George Atkins mayor of Hopkinsville which is located near Ft Campbell The army is still consulting with impartial scientists some here in Kentucky going over its plan using the spray to make sure that it's said Atkins If action by the Army is not expedient we'll be very disappointed Millions of the blackbirds roost on the military reservation at night then at daylight fan out over the surrounding countryside playing havoc with the farmers feed and the populace in general with their droppings A U.S Circuit Court of Appeals panel of three judges last week handed down a ruling permitting spraying in the Ft Campbell area to kill the birds The federal court ruling came in a court battle conducted by two wildlife groups which sought to halt the killing of the birds In Paducah Saturday night Coleman Myers 57 was hired to spray the area and made more than at level ping the detergent on the birds Lights the type used at road construction sites illuminated his way as he dropped about 800 gallons of the detergent on the birds Getting rid of the dead birds may be a problem looks like the birds that did die be left to be eaten by other said a local member

Share a GRANT PLAZA TALLAHASSEE Kla UPI Roger and Katie Nichols paid so much for the solar energy system to heat their new home that they are embarrassed to talk about it But they expect to make it up in low electric utility bills about half the cost of conventional heat sources Installation costs for the Nichols were high because 1 their house covers square feet and 2 they were halfway through building it before they decided to adapt it to use the sun's free rays for heating the house and water A solar system to heat the bath and dish water for the average square foot home would cost about according to Dr Clayton Morrison of the University of Florida solar energy research center Central heating of the house would add another or more The Nichols who have five children at home insisted on a 000 gallon water storage tank That meant sinking a big tank in the side yard and a pump to push the water up to the roof to be heated The most noticeable part of the system is a double row of black rectangles on the roof These are the solar made of aluminum They collect the sun's rays and transmit the heat to the water which is continuously pumped out of the storage tank to the room and back through copper coils The heating system picks up the heal off the hot water coils and blows it into heating ducts in the house It also heats up the water for baths and dishes The same water is used over and over A demonstration collector brought the water temperature from 45 to 135 degrees in three hours and 30 minutes on a sunny after- noon But Nichols deputy state commissioner of education says it's a diehard system that is 40 per cent efficient even on cloudy days Morrison said the heating operates just like gas heat or turning on a pump that pumps out enough hot water to turn off the thermostat control Nichols wanted to recycle the hot water to fuel his air con- system but was told this is at least two years away Builder Betty Harley is sold on it noting that solar energy School Counselors Get Good Grades rarely goes on strike it's inexhaustible and it's nonpolluting Dr Nichols thinks the government should give a tax credit to people who build solar energy homes to encourage them to save fossil fuels which are in short supply House Unit Organizes To Study Impeachment TALLAHASSEE Fla UPI In the three years since the legislature provided funds for elementary school

facilities and are financed by underworld figures State Attorney Richard said Sunday possible criminal and civil action might result from the investigation which was prompted by com- plaints from patients relatives as well as similar probes underway in various other states We're going to try to mine whether any criminal laws have been violated and whether there is a necessity to mend new
