Syrians release captured pilot
DAMASCUS, Syria (AP) — Syria today freed U.S. Navy LL Robert O. Goodman Jr., a day after Jesse Jackson met President Hafez Assad and made a direct appeal for the airman’s release.
Goodman, who had been held since his attack jet was shot down over central Lebanon a month ago, was brought to the Syrian Foreign Ministry shortly before noon in a civilian car and, as he went up the steps, told reporters, “I’m very happy.”
He and Jackson, a candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination and a leader of the black civil rights movement, emerged together moments later. They raised their hands in the V-for-victory sign and were driven in a limousine to the Sheraton Hotel where Jackson had been staying.
The Pentagon in Washington said a U.S. military plane was sent to bring Goodman home. Jackson said he also would be on the flight, and that it would probably stop en route to the United States so Goodman could ‘'go through the necessary medical examination and the necessary debriefing.” Goodman changed into a well-tailored suit following his release and appeared at a news conference with Jackson.
"It’s unfortunate that people are killed,” Goodman said, when asked how he felt to be free. “I’m a naval officer and the fact that I’m sitting here is just fate. It could have been 1,000 other” servicemen who were shot down and captured.
Goodman, 27, of Virginia Beach, Va., was navigator-bombardier on a A-6E Intruder jet that was shot down Dec. 4 during the only American air strike against Syrian anti-aircraft positions in

Lebanon. The plane's pilot was killed in the raid, which was in retaliation for attacks on U.S. reconnaissance flights.
Asked why he thought the Syrians granted Jackson’s appeal for his release, Goodman said: “I think he was able to come from a different point of view” than the Reagan administration.
Earlier, Goodman refused to speculate if efforts other than Jackson's could have succeeded. “I don’t know. I’m just happy to be going home.”
Jackson has denied that he made the mission because of race reasons. Goodman is black President Reagan said that all Americans "are delighted that this brave young nian will soon be united with his family and that his ordeal is over,” according to a statement read by a White House spokesman, Bob Sims.

Edwards settles fish lawsuit
The Edwards Underground Water District and the U.S. Department of the Interior have settled a lawsuit filed by the EUWD more than three years ago.
The water district has agreed to dismiss its complaint that the U.S. Fish It Wildlife service acted improperly in designating San Marcos Springs and River a “critical habitat” for the Fountain Darter,
San Marcos Salamander, San Marcos Gambusia and Texas wild rice.
The settlement, signed Dec. 21, calls for mutual communication between the two agencies on potential surface water reservoir sites.
It also calls for two-way communication regarding new listings of threatened or endangered species which may be found within those sites. In the case (rf plants or animals being considered for such listing,
Fish & Wildlife will provide the EUWD with relevant biological data on the species, and the EUWD will be
given an opportunity to comment on the data.
EUWD manager Tom Fox said this settlement will allow the district to be aware of any fish and wildlife issues associated with surface water reservoirs before those issues become impediments to the development of the sites. He said it would prevent the types of problems that have affected the Tellico Dam in Tennessee and Stacey Dam in Texas.
Action areas now under discussion in EUWD planning include:
— Sabinal Reservoir site, on the Sabinal River, seven miles south of Utopia in Uvalde County.
— Concan Reservoir site at toucan, Frio River.
— Montell Reservoir site, Nueces River, six mies upstream of laguna.
— Applewhite Reservoir site, Medina River, southwestern Bexar County.
