Eureka Times Standard (Newspaper) - October 31, 1976, Eureka, California (Ton!inurd F rom F’age |, supervisor of the Oil and Gas Division of the California fApartment of Conservation in Woodland, said Thursday his office has no complete record of Standard's lease holdings in this area But Sullivan said he had recently seen a company map of Standards holdings in Humboldt County ‘They have lots of acreage under lease in the area close to Kureka," he said He could not specify precisely where. -Oil, gas drilling rights Sunday, October 31,1976 The Time* Standard, Eureka.

The Times Standard reporter and Humboldt County historian, but has gone on since IHM Leases in past years have been acquired for exploration at Grizzly Bluff, at Table Bluff, at Alton, and on the Eel River bar. he said There’s been an operating gas field on Tompkins Hill, he continued — but in now of these cases has there ever been enough gas or oil produced to make drilling and pumping com mercially profitable at large scale What seems interesting in the case of the proposed leasing of the Rohncrville Tuesday judgment nears iContinued From Page I» against former Indianapolis Mayor Richard G.

By most calculations, the bigger the turnout of voters, the better for Carter. Four years ago. about SS per cent of the potential electorate cast presidential ballots This time. the per centage showing could well be lower, perhaps below half The trend is downward Turnout in the last five presidential elections has averaged 62 per cent There are about 150 million Americans of voting age. and alxnjt two-thirds of them are registered to cast ballots Now comes their choice, after an extraordinary campaign It is the first campaign ever to be* financed with public funds. $21 H million in checkedoff tax dollars for each candidate F’ord is a unique incumbent, come to office through ap point ment as vice president to Richard M Nixon, resigned Aug 9. 1974 The early pollsters’ odds led Ford to a move that has become customary for the underdog:    he challenged Carter to debate It hadn t b**en done in a presidential campaign in 16 years, and no incumbent ever had agreed to debate So they debated, or. more accurately, appeared jointly to respond to questions put by panels of reporters In three 90minute sessions, at in tervals of about two weeks. Ford and Carter dropped everything for the nationally televised encounters. In prospect. they had loomed as the decisive arenas of tin* campaign Both Dole and Mondale roamed the nation from l^ibor Day to election day Harris said his surveys showed that Mondair was an asset worth two or three percentage points to the llemocratic ticket W hat Ford and (’arter could not do in their televised debates, they could not do in person neither candidate found the issue or the image to turn the trend decisively in his direction Every time it seemed about to happen, something intervened Usually something they’d said Carter was riding high when, in declining to disclose details of his promised tax reform, he left an opening which Republicans seized upon to claim that he would increase taxes for half the population Then he turned up in F’layboy magazine, with interview comments about lust and adultery. F’ord seemed to be gaining headway when Earl Butz had to quit the Cabinet for slurring blacks, and when F’ord had to explain away his own misstatement on F^astern Europe So the campaign charts were zigzag, up one week, down the next But even with his periodic setbacks. F’ord was closing the summer s wide gap in the polls, saying as he embarked on his final and most intensive campaign journey    that he    was    in position    ‘’to pull    off    the political    surprise    of    the century and come back    and win ” His problem was com pounded by an economic downturn in midcampaign F’ord called it a pause in a solid recovery from the recession Carter said it was evidence that the Republican administration has made a mess of the economy. In foreign policy, F’ord claimed exf>erience, pointed to peace, promised a strong America Carter said the administration has forsaken morality in foreign policy, asserted that Ford had let Secretary of State Henry A Kissinger become de facto president for foreign affairs He said he would never permit subversion of a foreign government, or use U S troops unless American security was directly threatened At the same time. he criticized detente with the Soviet Union as too onesided • Airport property, however, is that Standard OII obtained a lease for subsurface exploration there in 1971, but surrendered that lease in November of 1973, Anders indicated The following month, the Organization of Petroleum F’,xporting Countries announced tremendous increases in the price of oil That set off a series of changes in the United States which resulted in higher prices for domes! ically-produced oil and gas and vigorous new efforts to find new sources in the U S Asked if those changes had caused the company to reassess its previous search for oil and gas in Humboldt County, Anders responded, ‘‘Sure the prospects have been enhanced by the price of oil and gas being made more attractive “But I’m not certain it would be most important,’’ he said. ‘No comment’ Anders also said he would have “no comment on the geological    evidence regarding possibilities for st riking oil or gas here Another Standard Oil official. however, told The Times Standard that company geologists “thought (the area > looked favorable from the standpoint of exploration, probably for gas " The company made an initial proposal to the Humboldt County board of supervisors to lease sub surface rights at the Rohnervtlle Airport. Anders said Standard Oil then requested a negative declaration of environmental impact on the exploration No drilling, if it were un dertaken at the site, could occur directly on airport grounds. Anders said, but would have to be done from a location adjacent to the airport The supervisors acted unanimously Tuesday to open the airport property to sealed bids for sub surface oil and gas exploration Up to 99 years The lease resolution indicates the lease will run for five years and many run up to 99 years, if oil or gas production from the area is sufficient to warrant According to the resolution, rental for the lease would be a minimum of $3 per net mineral acre beginning with the second year of the least* term if drilling operations aren't begun sooner The rental would be subject to suspension in accordance with the provisions of the least* The county would also receive a royalty of 12*3 per cent as set forth in the lease Sealed bids w ill be received and considered by the board 2p rn on Nov 23 Peso decline brings hardships K t t CIUDAD JLARF;Z, Mexico »re so acute that F’resident Wednesday    0 ‘bounties’ (API — Two peso devaluations in the midst of Mexico's worst monetary crisis in decades have brought dt*ep hardship to an estimated l« million Americans and Mexicans who live and trade on both sides of the border Official figures show retail sales from Brownsville and Matamorros to (’hula Vista and Tijuana have dropped 5 to 20 per cent, defending tin the area Merchants in dozens of border communities in Mexico and the United States either went broke or are about to told FInrique Moreno Alvarz. general manager of the Ciudad Juarez Chamber of Commerce.    predicts unemployment here will rise another 25 30 per cent if remedies are not lound f’resently one of every five of this city’s 100.000-member labor force is out of work Since Aug 31.

Gerald Ford and Jimmy Carter campaigned hard Saturday in stales with the fat electoral bounties that make presidents. F’ord said he ll win.

Nov 2. not only to support me with your prayers but to support me with your ballots." He saw encouragement in the crowd of 6.(MN) that heard him in Houston “W ith a rally like this in Texas." F’ord said. “I feel we're going to win and win overwhelmingly on Tuesday." Carter, cognizant of the delicately balanced polls. made no such claim But his press secretary. Jody Powell, said Carter's own vote project ions are “E'certamly encouraging " Powell said if Carter wins the southern and border states, as well as th** traditional Democratic states, he would need to carry only three of nine states that are rated tossups Among those are New York.
