Page Six, Monitor, Monroe, WA., September 1, 1977 Carele88 Campers To Lake Access Areas A minority of so-called sportsmen threaten to close access areas at popular Hannan and Fontell lakes near here, the ' result of bad habits and just plain "piggishness". Frank Damarell, access area supervisor for the State Department of Game, led a clean-up crew last week to the two lakes, southeast of Monroe and came away shaking his head. "It's kind of sad that these so-called sportsmen can be so thoughtless in these areas," DamareH said, pointing to the 46 1-yard bags of litter and garbage he and a group of Dept. of Ecology youth corps picked up at the two lakes. "ThOse 10 percent are going to ruin It for the other 90 percent." Among other transgressions cited by Damare!l: signs urging campers to do their part to help control litter are filled with shotgun patterns and rifle shot holes. Below a "No Fires" sign on a tall spruce is the remains of a camp- fire. Beer and soft drink cans and bottles were strewn about the landscape. "It's a miracle we didn't have a forest fire in this area back when It was so dry," Damareli said. "That would be about all it would take for Weyerhaeuser to bulldoze the road closed and put these beautiful areas off limits to campers." The access areas are on Weyerhaeuser Timber Co. land and are maintained by the Department of Game. Damarell said such carelessness on the part of users of access areas costs state hunters and fishermen countless extra dollars each year in replacement costs. Vandalism of restroom facilities and signs is a common practice throughout the state, he said. Since hunters and fishermen contribute to nearly all of the game department budget through license fees, it is they who are most affected by the careless few, said the access supervisor. He urged campers who observe others damaging the access sites or leaving garbage behind to report the incidents to game department personnel so that follow-up investigations can be made. Persons who litter or vandalize the access areas can be subject to fines. The last time the access areas at Hannon and Fontell were cleaned, in May, about 11 yards of litter were taken out, Damarell said. During last week's clean-up, there were nearly 50 yards of litter, including a rusted out stove, automobile tailpipes and a bale of chicken wire. Damarell requested that campers using any such out-of-the-way campgrounds pack their garbage out when they leave.

Such sloppiness on the part of the users threatens to close the access areas, says Frank Damarell of the game department.

Wilson said about 50 players turned out this year when two-a-day practices began last week. And for the first time in several years, there are more seniors on the team than juniors and sophomores.

The chapter participated in judging competition in the Skagit County Fair at Mt. Vernon Aug. 12, with the live- stock judging team bringing home third honors. Team members were Wayne Nelson, Robyn Bergen, Nick McDonald, Rob Thomas and Heidi Boyden with alternate Tillis Johnson. Nelson received highest scoring in the event. Dairy team members were Marie Van Ess, Stacy Boyden, Arnie Feddema, Heidi Boyden and Robyn Bergen, with Dave Barr as alternate. The team took fourth place in overall competition. The Northwest Washington Fair, held Aug. 16-20 at Lynden, provided the opportunity for several FFA members to test their strength as future farmers by exhibiting some of their own animals, reported Miss Bergen. Showing their Ayreshires, Stacy and Heidi Boyden took Grand Champion, Reserve Champion and several blue ribbons home. Marie Van Ess and Robyn Bergen each received blue ribbons for type in fitting and showing competition for their Holsteins. The Monroe dairy team took third place in judging competition Aug. 20.

The youth facility is launching its second annual commun- ity birthday calendar sales campaign this week, to run through the month of September, according to Gloria Hop- kins, director. Listings of birthdays and anniversaries of local people, meeting dates and special events of local service dubs, organizations and governmental bodies will all be placed in the calendar, which is being sold only through advance ord- ers, she said. Family listings will be $1.50, $2 and $2.50, depending on the size of the family. Any individual, business or organiza- tion wishing to be listed in the Monroe Birthday Calendar is asked to contact the Youth Club at 794-5151 or 794-5305. Proceeds will go towards improvement of youth club activ- ities, the administrator said. "Rod is an outstanding passer who can really throw the ball. I think he could be the best passer in this league. He's also an excellent team leader," enthused the coach. Creswell, who possesses "outstanding speed to go along with his superb size", also plays strong side defensive end just to keep warm during games. Wilson said he expects great things from junior running back Joe Dickinson, who started last year mid-way through the season. He will be the number one tailback because of his excellent speed and quickness, the coach stated. Dickinson may feel the hot breath of "understudy" Bill Roberts on his neck in positional battles. Wilson described Roberts, a sophomore and a key to last season's co-champion fresh team, "a pretty classy looking running back for a younger kid." On the line, where bulk is best, Wilson said he is impressed with senior strong guard and defensive line- backer John DiMaggio. Perhaps it is DiMaggio's 200-pound plus stature, but Wilson hopes he will also turn into a team leader to anchor the line. The Bearcats will utilize an inverse or "flip-flop" offensive line and flood one side with strong positions. Nailing down the strong tackle position will probably be 6-foot-2, 200 pound senior Rick Dowery. Dowery also will play a linebacking spot on defense. When Drivstuen releases his aerials, there is a good chance they will end up in the numbers of senior Dave Whitfield, a small (150 pounds) but quick end whom Wilson describes as the best receiver on the team. "He's got good hands and lots of speed," said the coach. Flanking on the other end of the field will be Scott Witherow, a sophomore who was originally slated to play at fullback until a prospective basketball-sized end moved out of the district. "He's too good to leave him as a second string fullback all season," Wilson asserted. Several players have been switched to other positions this year to fill gaps left by graduation or moves out of the district, Wilson said. Against Lake Stevens Sept. 9, Wilson and his team will try to avenge a 45-6 scalping suffered on their home field last season, which saw the Bearcats finish with a dismal 2-7 record. Wilson hopes to improve on that record this year but admits the task will not be an easy one. Sort of like standing at the forks of the Little Big Horn ....
