Two weeks ago, based upon a news re- lease from the Public Disclosure Commis- sion, we indicated that candidates for small governmental political positions did not have to comply with the state Public Dis- closure . tatuteo We were wrong, and I think you'11 un- derstand why when you read the following from the P.D.C.: "Not every candidate is requiredto file reports of campaign contribution and ex- penditures, however. The campaign fin- ancing provisions of the Open Government Law apply only to candidates for an office the constituency of which encompasses a whole county or which contains 5,000 or more registered voters as of the date of the last general election" Eince that writing we have talked to Public Disclosure Commission Adminis- trator Graham E. Johnson. He said the above is true but does not apply to state- ments of financial affairs which are re- quired of all political candidates The re- [lease, as you can probably see, misled us :and only applies to campaign contributions received by candidates for offices which have a constituency of less than 5,000v0t- ers. Sorry we misinterpreted the-P.D.Co re- lease, on the other hand it was authored by a bureaucrat and to our way of think- ing, was deceiving. Viewpoint By Howard M.

Sirhan will be paroled in 1986, 18 years aRer he murdered Robert F. Ken- nedy and dictated to a nation who would not be their president. To be merciful is an attribute, but it must be mercy tempered with Justice, not devoid of it. The crime of Sirhan was not only the crime of first degree murder, but also the crime of treason against a nation. By his action, he mandated to a nation who would not be their chief executive. His action affected not only the Kennedy fam- ily but the fate of a nation and the nations of the world. Had Robert F. Kennedy been elected Pres- ident, what course would he have charted for the nation? Would it have been one that would have led to Watergate? To the debacle in southeast Asia? Who is to say? It is all Idle speculation. Kennedy may have never been elected President. But by the action of Strhan B. Sirhan, the people of this nation were denied a choice. Murder and treason, yet this man will be free on parole in 1896, only 18 years later. Perhaps he should Just be issued a pardon. selling steers, lambs, hogs at Puget Sound Jr, Livestock Show Marysville Stock Yards Show Friday, June 13 Sale 10 a.m. Saturday, June 14 for more information call Sultan High School 793-7951 A OGJALJTY PROOUCT o Countertop Model lets you spend less Hme cooking.
