MAQUOKETA (UPI) Maquoketa residents are squabbling over the merits of a scenic view versus the value of an unsightly but effective erosion control project. Randall Xirkelbach. a 62- year-old high school teacher who built his retirement home above the Maquoketa river here, said the view from his picture window has been ruined by a neighboring farmer's junk cars. .Marvin Heneke. who has strewn the cars along about feet of the river, said he did it with the approval of the Iowa natural resources council as an erosion control project. Dr. M. A. Dalchow. a Maquoketa dentist who is a member of the resources council, said using old ear bodies to block erosion is not new and is needed to hold back the river. Without the cars, he said. Heneke could lose a 911- acre corn field. Dalehow said if Ihe nv er isn't held in check with control projects such as the junk cars, il would be necessary to build 'in additional bridge over the river which could cost about 87 million. However. Xirkelbach argues Ihe cars will pollute the river and are too unsightly lo remain on the river bank. "I'm amazed a slate agency would approve something like this." he said. "N'ot only is the aesthetic value ruined, there also must be ii pollution if those car bodies are going lo get wet and into the river." with a neighbor said he is attempting to deter- mine if the junk cars are in the jurisdiction of Ihe county or city so he can appeal the si- tuation to either the city coun- cil or the Jackson county board of supervisors. But Heneke reports bach should just sit tight and vines and trees will be planted along the car- and in "Iwo year's time yon won't be able to see the ears.

The opposition came at a hearing held by the Iowa county board of supervisors and the Iowa state highway commission on an agreement between the two regarding ac- ceptance of 149 from the state along with two other highway stubs in return for the stale's constructing relocated high- way 149 between interstate 811 and Homestead. Verne Folkmann, manager of the Farmer's Co-op drain and Lumber Co. of Conroy. charged that the county has been "sold down the river" in having to take old highway back. He said the highway com- mission has reneged on a 1972 deal in which it agreed ver- bally to retain old highway 149 into the state system. Assurance "In June. 1972. we met in Ames with the Folkmann recalled. "We came away with the assurance that this is what they had in mind. This leads me to believe the commission has gone back on its word and the county super- visors have weakened to their pressure." The supervisors called the hearing to discuss the agreement they signed with the commission in June. This calls for Ihe state to build the six-mile stretch of new 149 between the Ainana exit on interstate 81) and Homestead. In return for this, the county has agreed to accept highway 143 [lorn interstate 80 to U.S. (i north of Williamsbnrg past Conroy into the county system. The project is expected lo take five years. Agreement In the agreement, the county also will accept 1.3 miles of highway 411 north of Marengo and one mile of 2119 into Conroy into the county road system. The agreement calls for repairs to the highway 411 j bridge over the Iowa river and I resurfacing of highway 2119 before they arc turned back to j Ihe county. Also required by the agreement is a cash payment j of to the county at the time highway 149 is turned j back. The hearing, attended by about 25 persons, also heard continued opposition from Iowa township residents to ihe diagonal Howard Ilagen. represented his father (Iren Ilagen and his grandfather.

Opposition Also opposing the county ac- cepting old highway MS was Henry Tlagmann. jr.. a Conroy area fanner. He asked district highway Engineer Dan Snyder of Cedar Rapids what hap- pened to the plans to widen and improve highway in its present location. Snyder said these plans had been formulated in the late 1950s but were dropped in 1SB5 when the state developed ils freeway plan which al Hint time called for freeway lo be built from Cedar Rapids to interstate 80 along the general alignments now proposed for relocated 149. This freeway was scrapped by the highway conimsission in 1071 after similar opposition to its diagonal and also because of vehement opposition to its cul- ling through Ihe A in an a colonies. Review Minutes Kolkmann urged the com- mission to review its June, 1372 minutes to find that a verbal agreement was made to retain old 149 in the state system. Howard Hagen, who noted that he had been fighting this highway since he was in high school, said he wanted to correct a misunderstanding. He said he is for the state highway from the Amana in- terchange to Homestead, but he opposes the diagonal. He noted that even the straight north route would take considerable land from his family's farms, about the same amount the diagonal cutting- through the middle. But he said pointed fields would be avoided. of circumstances this year in southwest Iowa."
