Daily report ELWOOD POLICE A 20-year-old rural Elwood man was arrested by Elwood Police foltowing a two-car accident at South F and Anderson streets at 8;15 p.m. Friday night. Michael Travis Hill. Rt. 4, Box 163, . Elwood, was charged with operating while intoxicated, illegal possession of alcohol and failure to yield the right of way. ^ Patrolman Phil Caldwell, who investigated the mishap, said Hill failed to yield the right-of-way while westbound and attempting to turn north onto Anderson Street. Caldwell said. Hill turned into the path of a vehicle driven by Beth A. Lee, 32, 1510 N. E St., Elwood. A 5-year-old passenger in her vehicle, Christopher Lee, suffered minor abrasions but did not require medical attention. Hill’s blood alcohol content tested at .08 percent, Caldwell noted. The officer said, however, that he exhibited signs of impairment from what he had been drinking and failed a field sobriety test. Hill was being held at 11;20 p.m. ‘ Friday night, but was expected to ' post $3,500 bond to obtain his release, Caldwell said. In a separate incident, Capt. Tom Elder had pulled over an motorcycle rider on a traffic stop for having un-baffled tail pipes and driving erratically. Elder warned the motorcyclist, who could not present a valid endorsement to ride motorcycles on his driver’s license, and told him to walk the machine home. A few blocks away, the rkJer hopped back on and began to ride away, and Elder pulled him over again and began to write him a ticket, when the man became obscene and fled on foot. The man’s name was not released. Police are waiting for warrants to arrest him on resisting law enforcement and other charges, ■ Elder said. Elwood police also arrested Rodger A. Moore, 32, Muncie, in the parking lot to P M Liquor Store at 2:29 p.m. today. They found him asleep in his car, which was parked in the liquor ^ore lot. A two-car property damage accident also was investigated by Elwood police at 3:33 p.m. in the 300 block of S. Anderson St., where a vehicle driven by Tim Himmelrick, 22, 2008 S. A St., Elwood, struck the rear of another driven by Ramona L. Lyóns, 26, 2518 N. A St., Elwood. Lyons had slowed in traffic. Himmelrick could not stop on the wet pavement. ELWOOD FIRE DEPARTMENT ' Brenda Beeman, 31, 214 Broadway, Alexandria,‘ was transported to Mercy Hospital in the Elwood Fire Department ambulance at 8:04 a.m. Friday from Shepard Tool. JUDGE REFUSES TO DISMISS THAKKAR SUIT ANDERSON, Ind. (AP) - A judge refused Friday to dismiss three counts of an eight count indictment against an Anderson doctor charged with performing an abortion without the patient’s consent. Lawyers for Dr. Pravin D. Thakkar argued that an abortion charge and two related counts should be dismissed because the five-year statue of limitations had lapsed before one of three alleged victims complained to authorities. Madison Circuit Court Judge Fredrick R. Spencer ruled that sufficient evidence had been presented by prosecutors at a hearing last month to show that Thakkar, 39, tried to conceal his alleged crimes by threatening a patient. - Carmen Hertzinger, 35, of Anderson contends Thakkar impregnated her in 1983, then aborted the fetus without her permission during the eighth month of her pregnancy. Spencer said he accepted Hertzinger’s testimony last month that the doctor had repeatedly threatened her and members of her family with death if she told anyone of the alleged incidents. The judge said no evidence to the contrary has been presented. Jeffrey A. Lockwood, Thakkar’s attorney, presented no testimony disputing Hertzii^er’s claims during the March hearing. Thakkar is charged with two counts of illegal abortion, once count of attempted illegal abortion, two counts of criminal recklessness, two counts of battery, and one court of failure to report an abortion to the State Board of Health. Arbor Day began in treeless state NEBRASKA CITY, Neb. (AP) -Earth Day turned 20 this month in a national frenzy of environmental excess' observed for weeks in song, dance, meditation, exultation and exhortation. On its heels comes Arbor Day. Remember Arbor Day? A tradition started in 1872, it is one of the oldest formalized conservation observances in the world. Its occasion has resulted in the planting of millions of trees in this country through 10 generations. "God also said, 'I give you all plants that bear seed everywhere on Earth, and every tree bearing fruit which yields seed; they shall be yours for food.’’’ The author of Genesis knew the importance of trees. But not since the legend of Johnny Appleseed tagged after John Chapman, a Massachusetts farmer who gave up the plow to sow orchards from the Allegheny Mountains to Indiana after the Revolution, has tree planting become so trendy. "A tree planted today can enrich the lives of generations yet unborn,” President Bush said March 22 when he planted an eastern red bud on the White House lawn. "So let us plant the trees and nurture them so that America will remain America the beautiful for generations to come.’’ Bush then mused that John Quincy Adams planted am elm on the White House grounds in 1826. That Andrew Jackson’s magnolia is among the first to bloom each spring. That Woodrow Wilson’s family picnicked amid a grove of bay trees. Franklin D. Roosevelt planted a little-leaf linden for Britain’s King George VI, and Herbert Hoover and Dwight Eisenho.wer, both Midwesterners, left their arboreal legacy in oaks. Bush’s grandchildren now swing on Ike’s sturdy tree. Bush, who wants to plant a tree in every state, last April personally turned the dirt for an offspring of the Adams elm on the grounds of the North Dakota capitol in Bismarck. But before the presidential spade tapped down the roots, hortiouftur^lists -had to take Impatient impatiens wait for cold GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) — The impatiens are getting impatient in greenhouses ácross southwestern Michigan as the recent cold weather nationwide stalls sales of bedding plants. "We’ve had orders laying on the desk for weeks, and when we call our buyers, they keep saying ‘Let’s wait,”’ said Preston Hopkins, a partner at DeWinter Nurseries Inc. in Grandville. Flats of bedding plants that Notices EASTER EGG HUNT The annual Easter Egg Hunt, sponsored by the Moose Lodge, will be held at 11 a.m. today at Callaway Park, in Elwood. In case of rain, the event will be held at 11 a.m. Sunday. FISH FRY SPONSORED BY RIGDON LION’S CLUB A fish fry will be held today at the Rigdon Lion’s Club building The public is invited to attend.

Michigan ranks fifth in the nation behind California, Florida, New Vork and Ohio in the production of floriculture crops, which include foliage plants, potted plants, cut flowers and bedding plants. The total value of the state’s 1989 floriculture crop was about $112 million, said Steve Pscodna, deputy statistician at the Michigan Agricultural Statistics Service. That included 47.2 million flats of bedding plants shipped from the state last year. Agricultural officials say nearly 200 acres of Kalamazoo County’s Obituaries . RALPH C. PORE Calling hours tor Ralph C. Pora, 76,2352 N. Keeler Ave., phicago. III., a native and former resident of Tipton, will be from 7 to 9 p.m. Saturday at Leatherman-Morris-Boyer Funeral Home, 314 N. Main St., Tipton. Cremation will be followed by burial at a later date. muck riverbed lands are covered with hothouses, growing about $30 million worth of bedding plants each year. The 40-plus greenhouse operations employ about 600 people Business there usually peaks in mid-April,-when growers load trucks for Missouri, Illinois and Indiana. Tim Stiles, general manager of the Kalamazoo Valley Plant Growers Cooperative, said cold spring weather has delayed bedding plant shipments even to markets in the South. “We have such a broad market that usually we can find some home for tnem, but if poor weather continues for two more weeks, it will be a real problem,” he said. Hopkins, a former president of the West Michigan Bedding Plant Association, said annuals can be delayed a few days, maybe even a week, by opening greenhouse vents and cooling the air inside. But when days are sunny, as they have been recently and are expected to be this weekend, the plants won’t wait. That means he has to pay employees to pick off dead blossoms to salvage thousands of flats that seem to think spring has arrived. emergency action against gypsy moth larvae that had taken a free ride from Washington amid the 12-foot saplii^’s branches. The president’s North Dakota tree is now thriving, according to S.F. "Buckshot” Hoffner, executive director of the North Dakota Centennial Commission. The elms Bush planted in South Dakota and Montana for those states’ centennials last year are also budding. On April 3, Bush planted another elm in Indianapolis and dedicated it to the comatose Ryan White, the teen-ager with AIDS who died five days later. -- - But Bush is not tackling his goal single-handedly. In his 1990 budget, he asked. Congress for $175 million to plant 1 billion trees. He has called on fellow citizens to plant 10 billion trees by the beginning of the century. In time, he said, those trees would annually absorb 13 million tons of carbon dioxide, 5 percent of nationwide emissions. Global ReLeaf, a project of the American Forestry Association, plans to plant 100 million trees in the United States by 1992. A private U.S.-Soviet venture plans to plant fruit trees along the coast of Nicaragua. Scrambling to get on the bandwagon, corporations are lining up to help the U.S. Forest Service with its National Tree Planting Initiative. Texaco, for one, has pledged $1 million to nurture new woods being planted this year by volunteers in Houston, New Orleans and Denver. Scientists say woodlands restoration comes none too soon. Over centuries, agriculture has done in nearly half of the Earth’s original forestland. Every year, tropical rain forests the size of Tennessee disappear under the machete and the bulldozer. Experts say football field-sized stands of trees are mowed down somewhere in the world every 3 seconds. Arbor Day, as with most great causes, began as one person’s vision and became an official, holiday long before ecology was a buzz word.
