Single Copy 25* Supervisors nix Sutter prison vote Proponents vow to make initiative effort By ERIC VODDEN A-D Staff Writer Sutter County Supervisor Roger Chandler last night failed in his bid to let the voters answer next November the question of whether the state should continue looking into the possibility of building a prison in the county. But Live Oak Mayor Leo Chesney, who has been spearheading a drive in support of constructing a prison in the county, said this morning proponents will circulate petitions in an attempt place the matter on the ballot. Chandler's motion calling for an advisory measure to ask voters their opinions on the proposed prison died for lack of a second during the regular meeting of the board. Some members of the board were visibly irritated the matter resur- faced before them for a second time since they voted March 4 to oppose construction of a prison anywhere in the county. "I think this thing ought to be put to rest," said Supervisor Joe Bena-tar. "I have seen no new facts that have been presented to change my mind. There has been no grounds-See Back Page, PRISON | Khadafy: 'Military plans' to challenge U.S. finished Threats against American targets worldwide renewed TRIPOLI, Libya (AP) - Libyan leader Col. Moammar Khadafy said today he and his top commanders have completed military plans to challenge the United States. He renewed his threats against American military and civilian targets worldwide. "We have just finished making military plans for confrontation in response to the latest American threats to us," Khadafy told reporters who had been called to his heavily guarded bunker in the Libyan capital. He spoke in Arabic and his remarks were translated by an official government interpreter. "It is axiomatic that America will be defeated militarily," Khadafy said. "It is axiomatic that if aggression is staged against us, then we shall escalate the violence against American targets, civilian and non-civilian, throughout the world."

U.S. carrier's departure for home from Mediterranean area canceled YCHS students work to keep others from driving while drunk WASHINGTON (AP) - The Defense Department, in the clearest indication yet that plans are being studied for a military strike against Libya, has canceled the departure of one of its aircraft carriers from the Mediterranean Sea to home, sources said today. The Navy has also been told to drop plans for a liberty call for the second carrier in the region, the sources said. The officials, speaking on condition of anonymity, stressed the Navy had yet to receive any orders to reform a naval battle group in the central Mediterranean off Libya's coast. But one source added, "It has become clear over the past 24 hours that we're going to keep our options open for the moment by keeping two carriers over there." At the same time. President Reagan was telling newspaper editors that the United States is "not going to just sit here and hold still" in the wake of renewed terrorist attacks against American* in Europe. He said Libyan leader Moammar Khadafy is "definitely a suspect" in the latest fatal bombings aboard a TWA jetliner over Greece and in an West Berlin nightlclub. The president refused to say what he plans to do, other than continue to gather evidence about the incidents and seek the support of European allies. "We are investigating and trying to gather all the information we can so that we can actually, with solid evidence, point a finger at who is repsonsible," Reagan said. Asked if he that evidence now points to Khadafy, Reagan replied, "Let me say he is definitely a suspect " "We're continuing to try and get more support now for action that would be appropriate in view of the greater threats that are being ut- See Page A-7, CARRIER % By GORDON SULLIVAN A-D Staff Writer School clubs engage in a wide variety of activities, but Yuba City High School may be seeing a first. Since Monday, students at the school have been confronted with a wrecked car in the middle of the school grounds. That exhibit is just one of the events planned this week by Students Against Drunk Driving (SADD) to dramatize the dangers of drunken driving. "The object of the week is to increase our membership and make the student body and community aware," said Cathy Flores. the club president. The club is just one chapter of SADD - there are others nationwide. The organization is the brainchild of Robert Anastas, Flores said, a man she heard speak at a convention in Anaheim last year. "He was a coach at his school." Flores said. "In one year, around graduation time, he lost four players from drinking and driving." The YCHS chapter of SADD meets the first Monday of each month, and officers meet a second time every month as well. In addition to Flores, club officers are Denise Barfus, vice president; Joe Lind, secretary; Viki Estes, treasurer; Shelly Boyd, ' publicity coordinator; and Susan Nolan, sergeant at arms. The club adviser is Karen Mathews, who teaches in the learning center. But if Mathews is an adult, that doesn't mean the club is run by adults. "Of course there's a faculty adviser," said school Principal Martha Bunce, "but groups get started because students want them." Membership is currently about 30. That's down from about 65 members when the club began last year, a decrease Flores said reflects the fact that some members have graduated, and that many students do not like to attend meetings during lunch hour. At those meetings, students plan ways to publicize the dangers of drinking and driving. Some of those ways are as simple as putting up See Back Page, SADD t Weather Fair and sunny.
