DRl'MN ADROCHIT, Scotland (AP) — The head of the biggest scientific hunt for the Loch Ness Monster doesn't expect to find the real thing, but concedes he can't kill a 1.400-year-old myth with a high-tech hunt that begins today. •‘I’m certainly not going to haul a Jurassic reptile out kicking and screaming for you.” said Adrian Shine, refering to animals from a prehistoric era Shine, a 38-year-old London salesman, has studied the 754-feet deep loch for 14 years and heads Operation Deepscan Loch is Scottish for ‘‘lake ” More than 20 motorboats run by IOO volunteers today are expected to form a single line across the mile wide lake and sweep the murky dep tbs with the latest American sonar equipment for any large objects that might be Nessie 'I am looking possibly for a very large fish ” he told a news con ference Thursday night “I would Im* delighted with a 20-foot eel or sturgeon or something like that ” Whatever does emerge, even Shine say s the legend that begun in 565 A I) when St Columba punished the monster for attacking one of the saint'*'followers will bs eon mFu »ther Coma!

Durham said he hopes to have some input in that selection “The individual needs to be the type that will fit into the community and office situation It is important to mesh as a unit Barbour told the court he enjoyed his work in Comal County and his relationships with both the court and the community "I have enjoyed working here ” he said “I do hate to leave the good people here in the county.” In other action, commissioners voted 2-to-l to enter into a one-year agreement with Dr Carlos Campos to become the county’s health authority Commissioner Clyde Jacobs voted against the agreement Campos’ hiring will be retroactive to Oct I and was made necessary by the expiration of an agreement with Dr Dorothy Overman Campos duties will be to administer medical services during regular sick calls to the county jail, provide supervision for jail nurses, and resource and legal authority for the county nurse and sanitarian Jacobs’ objection to the agreement stemmed from additional and un budgeted expenses for the remainder of 1987, although the county does have money to pay for those costs in surplus funds. Campos’ 1988 earnings, placed bet ween $16,900 and $26,OOO based on $50 per hour, have been included in next year’s budget Liability insurance coverage will cost the county some $9,500 “Just because we have a dollar doesn t mean we have to go out and spend it,” said Jacobs after the meeting We had a communications problem but I don t like to be pressured We are adding services and costs without first seeing if it is justified ” County Health Nurse Mary Lou Erben and Sheriff Walter Fellers endorsed the agreement with Campos Fellers said the fact that Campos was bilingual was a plus because of the high number of hispanic prisoners housed at the jail The county received only one bld for the repair of a concrete boat ramp at Canyon Lake Village and that bid w as opened The bid came sn only minutes before the ll 30 am deadline and was $37 850 more than anticipated repair costs Commis stoners based on estimates provided for repairs, expected costs to run SHMO The bid was by Myers Construction from Wimberley A company spokesman said the bid was hurried ly prepared and was based on repair to six boat ramps, not one Commis sioners court requested that Myers Construction and County Engineer Mac McCoy negotiate the price and report to the court at next Monday s session In another 2-to-l vole, again with Jacobs casting the no vote commissioners approved a line-item transfer within the district attorney s budget to allow for a clerk working Ui hours to become a full-time clerk District Attorney William Schroeder told the court the clerk had been working full time since Sept. 7 and requested full-time wages be reflected retroactive to that date Unspent monies budgeted for a new computer terminal and typewriter maintenance were transferred to cover those costs Jacobs said he felt ‘ a bad precedent' was being set if commissioners allowed department heads to request such changes “after the fact ” Schroeder apologized to the court for any inconvenience caused by the transfer request delay In other action, commissioners — for lack of a motion, denied a variance to the private sewage facility regulations for a homeowner in The Schuetz subdivision The request was to waive the requirement that the homeowner attach his discharge lines to a sewage main in the subdivision — set a $15 per linear foot cost for letters of credit regarding street construction pursuant to the county’s subdivision regulations and gave the county engineer authority lo increase those costs if necessary The move is temporary as the county continues reworking its subdivision regula lions Continued trom Page ’ fleer permanently licensed under lh* authority, of Art 4413 29aa \ A C > Vernon - Annotated Civil statute is allowed under this order I he last section addressed con cerns bv man) Canyon Lake residents complaining ot per -. n-target hunting in subdivisions creating hazards for residents living nearby In essence Jacob sorrier would u t dress pecificallv tho*'*- concerns aired bv an overwhelming!' pro Ilion crowd that asst* earner if legislature A -econ CHI Stammtisch___ Continued trom Page * pm to I a rn saturday Oct I" The dance is a benefit performance for Smithson Valley High .School Future Farmers of America and ad mission is $4 in advance S at the door well gate really Money raised will go to buy equipment and provide maintenance for the FFA -poultry and livestock projects Beer cold drinks and set-ups will be available If it rains or there is a snow blizzard or incredible sand storm, the dance w ill be held mild** the spiffy entercnnment hall instead of outside New Braunfels Volunteer Fir* Department will do a rummage sale to raise funds for equipment and such The sale will be at Krueger Chevrolet’s used car facility at 472 W San Antonio from 9 a rn to 5 p rn , and donations are needed lf you have something to donate to the cause call 625-4782 or 625-9289 so the guys and gals can come pick it up The Lake Dunlap Volunteer Fire Department s long awaited benefit barbecue is Saturday beginning at 4 p rn at Riverbend Park and what a day it will be The weather will be absolutely perfect for the fun. which will feature The Texas Gunfighters and the Saddle Tramps Band, along with games Donation is only $3 jo and the money w ill be used to help buy much-needed fire equipment and pay for firefighting training Community Education is sponsor mg a Health Fair at the Bracken Volunteer Fire Department tomorrow from 9 a rn to noon A blood analysis will be done for about $10 • don’t eat or drink after evening meal the night before).

Shine organized Operation Deepscan to follow up on his much smaller 1982 expedition which recorded 40 sonar contacts with large, sometimes moving objects as much as 350 feet deep “Loch Ness monsters are different things to different people." Shine said “My Nessie for today is a sonar contact that I don’t understand yet If the three-day probe verifies the 1982 sonar contacts, Shine said it still will not be possible to determine just what Nessie is “Then, we will go on to the next stage which will involve other technologies so I don't expect to t>e able to finish the job entirely he said The more than 4.000 reported sightings of Nessie in modern times have included long necks vast tails and a pnmev a1 flipper Skeptics hav« dismissed them as everything from ducks otters shadows and rocking vegetation to a \ iking longboat A mix of believers and skeptics including more than 300 journalists from as far as Rio de Janeiro Brazil and Tokyo have flocked here to watch or participate in the sonar sw eeps of the 23 mile long lake AARP publishes brochure about property tax relief The American Association of Retired Persons is offering older homeowners in Texas a free brochure that explains state pro grams designed to ease the burden of the high cost of property taxes In rex as older homeowners tan get property tax relief through the* Homestead Exemptions ann Homestead Tax I referral Program-Homestead Exemptions exempt a portion of a home s assessed vail* from property taxation Homeowners age 65 and older t an qualify for an exemption of at least $15 " lr the [referral Program eligible homeowner- receive a loan to pay property taxes The loan does not have to be repaid until they die or sell their homes These programs can be of tremendous benefit to older persons I ope that as a result of AARP s edu. ational efforts many more pee* pie will take advantage of It AARP Saegert wants to get this information into the hands of those who will truly benefit said Mice Korthauer of Brenham AARP s state director for Texa- With more than 2* million members KARP is the nation > largest organization of Amen*.ans -and older It is a nonprofit non partisan organization which offers a wide rang** of membership benefits legislative representation at tm* federal and state leve.s and educa ttonal and community sen .ce pro gram carried out through a nations network of volunteers and loca. chapters The assoc istion offer' a variety of educational and advocacy programs for older worsen wh« make up one fourth of AARP ' membership For a free single ropy of the brochure send a postcard to AARP Fulfillment DI2737 1909 K St N 6 M ashington D *    13**49 fewer than two dozen person- asked commissioners to enforce existing state and local law- pertaining to public safety anc asked that no measures that wou.d further restrict or prohibit hunting be considered \s far as I arn concerned it deals with the issue of public -afetv and that s all I want I ion ! care about Bur eau ai eg* Continued from Page I (led more than 60 papers in nit journals and professional tg proceedings VS uh a special consumer psychology he has ! a- cor-uitant to Prentice Ha.. her - Firestone Tire and Rub southwestern Bels Telephone i > Postal Service Office of .er Protection and the ^an \n Conv en lion and \ tailors among others •rt currently -erves on the ad ommittee on educ ational ad at ion for the coordinating Texas * olleg*- and University He ha' also t*een a member of the I TNA Strategic Planning Task Force chair of the southern \-soc ta Hon of College- and Schools sei‘ study Subcommittee on ''peciai Ac fix dies and ( hair of the I TS A < bllege of Busine" I en are and Pr * *r. * * Review Committer He has served on the ed:f ria. review board of Psychology and Marketing and The Journa of Advertising He is prest tent of the Division of Consumer Psychology of the Amene an Psychologic a. \-v« bon for 1987 kb saegert received hts bache., r s degree and hoi Is a den torate in psychology from the Cm vers:: v of Texas at Austin SBA Obituaries Berino Alves Services an* pending at A**..**: Funeral H**me for Benn© Alves of Rout** 2 in New Braunfels Alw- Ti, died (ret 8 at McKenna Memorial Hospital Arr arnement- are pending Dr. Raymond F.
