Well the Turks and Bearcats are going :to have at it again --the inter-valley rivalry, five decades in existance, will come off again this Friday evening at Sul- tan after two seasons tn retirement. From the record book, and thanks to Tom Sofle of Sultan, the Cats' have dumped the Turks 36 times while the Sultanites have claimed victory 11 times. Three times dur- ing the 50 years the teams have worked themselves into a tie situation. The record also shows the Turks last victory was in 1960. And. any way you want to chop the grid- iron. this Friday's go should be worthy of a Howard Cosell commentary. Both squads have raps for outstanding defensive play, consequently the best offense should be the catalyst for victory. And the way we feel about it we don't care who wins in-so-long as its the Bear- cats. Snohomtsh County PUD is launch- ing a vigorous campaign to effect an immediate seven per cent reduction in usage of electricity of all of its 106,000 industrial, commercial and residential customers. The voluntary curtailment pro- oram being initiated by the utility pefully will eliminate the nec- esstty of mandatory curtailment later on if the power supply situation remains critical. PUD Manager W.G. Hulbert, Jr. said the current regional power Plans Worked Out For Tax flefunds Two alternatives have been out- lined to handle refund of overpay- ments on 1973 property taxes Sno- homtsh County Assessor Jim Haines said. Haines, working tn cooperation with County Treasurer Verne Stevers, has been computing the amount of overpayment on each parcel of land in the county. Earlier this Summer the State Supreme Court chopped two mills off the 22 mill basic tax assess- ments. The decision came about through voters approval of SJR 1 and Initiative 44 on last November's ballot which limited real and per- sonal property to 20 mills with the court ruling the measure applted to 1973 assessments and collections. The assessor said one mill was reduced from the state's two mill levy for public asststance and the 'other mill cutback was pro-rated for all taxing districts such as schools, sewer, water, cities, counties and Fire Calls Junior taxing districts. County wide, the rollback will re- flect an estimated $3 million reduc- tion. ; Following atre last Week'il calls answer~K1 by Monroe Fire Department as reported byFire Chief Jim Crawford: September 9, shortly after 6 a.m., volunteers Taxpayer, s who already haye paid their 1973 property taxes' full will be issued a refund checkkby Some- time in late November, Sievers.said. Persons who paid only the first crisis has been brought about by an acute shortage of water throughout the entire Columbia River water- shed. "Almost 90 per cent of the elec- tricity used tn the Pacific North- west is generated at hydro-electric dams on the Columbia and other Northwest streams and rivers," he said. "Since the beginning of 1973 the area has experienced a serious de- ficiency of water supply due to sub- normal precipitation and a light snow pack last winter. This has resulted in substantial underfilling of reser- voirs and some restrictions on the use of available water for electric oeneration. It has been impossible supply generation to carry exist- ing load and, at the same ttme, store water to be used for generation dur- ing this next winter's heavy load season." In addition to the possibility of the worst water conditions in 95 years, other contributing factors have com- pounded the problem Hulbert noted. "These include delay in in- stallation of new hydro generating units, forced outages at existing hydro sites due to mechanical and technical difficulties, the inability of the Centralia Steam Plant to gener- ate at full capacity due to air pol- lution restrictions and delay in com- pletion of the Trojan Nuclear Plant." "Obviously, some precipitation will be forthcoming during the Fall and Winter although it is not known at this time whether it will be suf- ficient to materially improve power generation capability. In fact, it is somewhat doubtful that reservoirs will fill sufficiently to insure ade- quate power generation for the fol- lowing year," Hulbert added. The PUD is making every att.empt to lead the way by setting a good example during the current shortage Hulbert said. The utility has curtailed all non- essential night time lighting as well as reducing the lighting, heating and cooling level in all utility buildings and properties throughout the county Names New to the maximum extent possible on a 24 hour per day basis. All PUD employees have been en- couraged to conserve on individual use of electricity in their homes and a suggested list of ways to con- serve has been furnished them for theirpersonal use and to advise their friends and neighbors on ways to cut back on their use of electricity. In a recent letter to the larger industrial and commercial bus- inesses in Snohomish County Hulbert explained the critical regional pow- er situation and requested their im- mediate help in reducing electrical loads by at least seven per cent. Suggestions for reducing electric consumption by business and indus- try (ncluded reducing lighting levels, eliminating unnecessary lighting, lowertng heating thermostats four degrees, raising air conditioning thermostat settings to 80 degrees, turning off all electrical apparatus when not in use and conserving on the use of hot water.
