To the Editor:
Elsewhere in this paper we
have placed an ad containing
information concerning how
the upcoming initiative ballot
38, the "C lean Stream Initia­
tive," will affect not only us
personally, but the communi­
ty as well.
For 75 years, the Wilkinson
Ranch has always opened its
lands to hunters, local and
otherwise, and it has been our
pleasure to allow those who en­
joy hunting and fishing to have
access to our property. T h e ;
"Welcome to H unt" signs tru­
ly meant what they said and we
earnestly hope that we may
continue to offer this privilege
in the future. Please unders­
tand that the ad is absolutely
not meant as a threat.
We have never posted "N o
Hunting" signs and we hope it
will never be necessary. How­
ever, we are taking this means
to help our friends and neigh­
bors understand that the
"C le an Stream In itiative"
Measure 38, if passed, will
create a "G estap o " type of
state because of the unfair and
unrealistic liability and lawsuit
provisions it will put into effect.
Private landowners will be
deemed "guilty unless proven
innocent," which is the exact
opposite of our rights as citi­
zens of the United States. It will
change Oregon civil law as to
the right to sue by removing
the requirement that a person
must be affected directly. The
legal consequences will cause
us and other private landown­
ers to have to close lands to
hunting and fishing.
This is a very extreme and
un-American measure; it will
cause many more problems
than it will solve. We are ap­
pealing to you to inform your­
selves and others of the adverse
consequences if this measure
passes, and vote no on 38.

Candidacy doesn't make sense
To the Editor:
To the voters of Morrow
County-I have a concern regar­
ding the office of Morrow
County Treasurer. Why is
Majgo Sherer, who is the coun­
ty treasurer, running for re-
election when she has a lawsuit
against Morrow County? Why
would any voters of Morrow
County vote for her, when in
the long run it will cost tax­
payers of Morrow County to
pay for attorney's fees? Also,
Morrow County could lose
their liability insurance. This
does not make sense, her run­
ning for county treasurer.
