A LOCAL LADY of uncertain age and throaty voice has been driven to distraction by phone calls between 1 and 3 o'clock in the morning, involving heavy words and heavier breathing,. She found an answer. The whispery voice on the line said, "And how are youuuu tonight?" "Not so well," sighed the lady. "The doctor just told me I have AIDS." CLICK!

FRIDA Y'S DEBATE between Supervisor Mike Antonovich and his challenger, former Supervisor Baxter Ward, is described elsewhere in this issue by reporter Gary Johanson. Very touching, by the way, the three-page letter supposedly written by Mike's father, sent out to several thousand people, begging for money (It ends: "Please help me help my son! ") The Antonovich staffer who REALLY wrote it reportedly has been dumped because he was ill-advised enough to call Baxter Ward 'a nitwit'...The impassioned plea for money is a laugh when one looks at the last (end-of-June) financial reports of both candidates: Mike had spent $91,407 since May 5, and was left with $134,426 cash on hand. Baxter spent $1,552 and had remaining in his bank account $4,590.

BY SLOW CAMEL from Indio comes the sad news that Dr. Carroll Word, formerly of the SCV, has died of cancer at
62. At the time of his death he was pastor of the First United Methodist church of Indio. He was pastor at the Santa Clarita Methodist church on Bouquet Canyon Road during that church's early growing years -from '68 to '74. He was more than a churchman; he was elected to the Hart high school district board of trustees during the district's most trying times in recent memory. It was the Vietnam er:: , and a group of students asked Don Jerry, then the new principal of new Canyon High, for permission to wear black armbands and sign an anti-war book during home-room period. They promised there would be no demonstration, and there wasn't. However, the Hart Board of Trustees got wind of the affair and the chairman improperly went over the head of the superintendent and ordered Principal Jerry to cancel his permission. Jerry refused, and Superintendent C.T. Haan stepped in to defend his principal's principles. The board fired the superintendent by a 3-2 vote. Results: Haan went to court and got a substantial financial award, then left to teach in Stockton. In a bitter recall election, the voters ousted the board members who had fired Haan. One of the recalled board members was replaced by pastor Carroll Word. He was a fresh wind blowing through the school district. Ah, memories...

TRIUMPH FOR FRONTIER DAYS: The October 1 parade will feature not one, not two, but TEN Shrine marching units, coming all the way from Moreno Valley on the east and Santa Paula on the west. With them will come the national award-winning Al Malaikah band, and their drum and bugle corps. Music, color, novelty -who could ask for anything more?

IT'S TICKET TIME in Santa Clarita: Money-money for the city and harassment-harassment for the citizens. One of those trapped by the diligent cops is City Council MemberJan Heidt, who also owns a book store. Jan had five boxes of books to mail after hours one day, so she drove to a parcel mailbox in Canyon Country. It was fronted by a red curb, so she left her engine running while she unloaded the books and hoisted them into the mailbox. Along came a Sheriff's car and, ignoring her protests, promptly ticketed her. She paid the $50 and THEN called Capt. Bob Spierer at the SCV Sheriff's station to suggest that enforcement was a little unreasonable. He said, "Sorry, lady, we don't make the laws, we just enforce 'em." Gave Jan, who DOES make laws, an idea: Why shouldn't there be green zones next to parcel mailboxes?

Fragile Cargo

Choppers Rattle Neighborhood

Citizen Staff Writer

Susan Olmstead said they make her headboard vibrate at night.
Patty Rogus said they violently rattle her windows.
Defying schedules, they howl over the horizon and drop from the sky, shattering the suburban stillness with rotor wash and their distinctive pop-pop-pop exhaust note.
Tonight their fragile cargo is a mother in her early 20s who was pried from the wreckage of a headon collision on the Golden State Freeway near Gorman.

Men Who Would Be Supervisor

By Gary Johanson Citizen Staff Writer
A handful of SCV residents weaved through 30 miles of congested traffic Friday morning and plonked down $13 for a 7:30 a.m. breakfast at the Calabasas Inn.
The tariff was steep, but the Santa Claritans hadn't come for the food.
The main attraction, which is unavailable at an SCV venue, was a debate between two politicians who have each reigned for eight years as County Supervisor in charge of the SCV fiefdom.
Like anxious fans at a title fight, the crowd, an unlikely mix of plaidshirted environmentalists and silksuited developers, eyeballed the combatants.
At one table sat incumbent Mike Antonovich, 49, a large, soft-spqken fellow with a mild demeanor, a bulging campaign treasury, nd

Developers Will Fund New Schools
Agreements have been reached between the Hart and Saugus school districts and two land-holding development companies which will provide money to build much-needed new schools.
In one arrangement, the Newhall Land & Fanning Co. has agreed to pay the Hart school district approximatelY\ $6 million to construct a fourth 1high school.
The \ agreement Newhall Land reached with the Saugus district was for $5 hlillion.

The schools and the money to build them are needed to lessen, the impact of 1800 new residences which the company intends to build in the in the northwest portion of the school district, directly north of the industrial park and east of 1-5.
That development is known as the Northbridge project.

Drug Arrests Up: A Gaudy Incident
By Emory Holmes II Citizen Staff Writer

Narcotics arrests can lead to some wild encounters.
As Sergeant Bob Wachsmuth of the SCV Sheriff's station reported that drug arrests in the SCV are up 30 per cent since Santa Clarita became a city last Deember, he reflected on some details.
Wachsmuth said that the jump in the percentage of arrests "probably doesn't mean that there are more drugs in the SCV.
There are more police on the streets since the city became incorporated; and with more police offic-• crs they have been able to observe more crime activity than before."
One of the most harrowing scenes involving drug abuse that the additional officers have observed in the past weeks involved two SCV Sheriff's deputies during a night patrol of Magic Mountain.
After a long evening pounding the beat through the high-tech neon

Hits SCV With Fees
By Kaine Thompson Citizen Staff Writer

H.P. Alexander of Canyon Country was really steamed when he received a delinquency notice this week that he had not paid his parking ticket. The delinquency notice demanded a $25 payment by the 15th.
Alexander refused to pay.
The parking ticket was issued in San Francisco. Alexander has never been to San Francisco.
Calling the local DMV, Alexander found he was not the only one to have received a citation from the Bay city. Nearly 50 people from Santa Clarita have also received such notices. One of them is an employee of the DMV.

There's a lot of Gold in Those Tracts
By Emory Holmes II Citizen Staff Writer
(In Part 1 of this article, in Wednesday's Citizen, it was reported how the current sellers' market in SCV homes had led prospective home buyers to try to outwit the lottery system whereby names of buyers are chosen by lot.
A Mrs. Geller claimed that she had sent gifts of value to salesman Dick Pins to obtain a favored position, and her efforts had produced nothing. The house she had sought to buy and resell at a profit was drawn by someone else.
"Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned," she said.)
Part 2
"Just to give you some indication of what the demand is for housing in the Santa Clarita Valley," says Dale Poe salesman Dick Pins. "I've been offered bribes like new cars, cash (over $20,000) and other things. And I've never taken a one."

mentalist" by his opponent.
Across the room, Baxter Ward, 68, a short man with penetrating eyes, a zinging verbal delivery, and a pauper's war chest, whom Antonovich once called a "demagogue," dabbled with his .fruit cocktail. ,
"Some of these people complain that the only time they get to talk to Mr. Antonovich is when they pay for a meal," said Ward.
Once the debate began, the audience found plenty to clap about.
Ward lashed out at Antonovich's eight-year-long record as Supervisor (1980-1988), while Antonovich responded by attacking Ward's tenure (1972-1980) in the same office. (Antonovich defeated Ward in 1980.)
Antonovich initiated the skirmish, saying Ward undermined the criminal justice system while he was Supervisor.
A reserve police officer, Antonovich said he favors stiff prison sentences for drug sellers, and credited himself with the establishment of "Just Say No" (anti-drug) clubs in county libraries and parks.
"My opponent, Baxter, spent his eight years attacking our Sheriff, our District Attorney, and not meeting face to face _with our judges on serious issues."
Ward responded that he fully supports law enforcement, saying he incurred the dislike of former Sheriff Peter J. Pitchess because he was instrumental in getting 144 deputies transferred from duties as file clerks to street patrol.
Ward also claimed Pitchess's nickname among other law enforce-

Drug Busts Involve Unexpected Collisions

the two officers decided to take a
restroom break.
When they walked wearily into the restroom, they heard a distinctive sound coming from the stall reserved for the handicapped.
It was: "Snnniiifff11 ... snifffff1"
Then, there was this dialogue:
"Damn! This is good 'cain. Thanks."
"No problem, man. We're here to have a good time. Here ... have some more."
"Hey -be careful. There are people in here."
"They can't tell we're doing cocaine."
The two deputies looked at each other, then bent over to observe the two sets of feet visible beneath the door of the stall.
In the words of Sergeant Wachsmuth, the two officers determined that a crime was afoot and that "two individuals were ingesting cocaine."
One of the officers peered through the crack in the stall and saw a powerful young fellow holding one of two large baggies full ofa white powdery substance into which the man had inserted a straw made out of a rolled-up $5 bill.
The man, Jeffry Prock, 25, and his erstwhile associate, Norman Hill, also 25, are the two fellows involved in the alleged drug activity.
Prock took a healthy snort and passed the goods over to Hill.
The two officers then knocked on the door of the stall and politely announ~ed: "Sheriffs deputy."
The powerfully built Prock immediately pushed his surprised companion out of the way and attempted to dump the cocaine into the toilet.
Hill bounced back against Prock and he missed the bowl, dumping the expensive stuff onto the floor as one of the officers clambered over the door and hurled himself into the st.all.
The airborne deputy dove for the bag.

Flailing and grappling with his uniformed foe, Prock managed to reach over to the wide-eyed Hill and snatch the baggie out of his hands.
The deputy wrestled with the truculent Prock and attempted to subdue him.
It didn't work.
Prock began a fitful battle as the

Antonovich also rapped Ward for advocating that syringes should be given to known intravenous drug users to stem the spread of AIDS, saying that money should instead be spent on rehabilitation programs and education.
"It's a myth, Mr. Ward, to say that giving alcohol to alcoholics is going to make a safer community," said Antonovich. "You don't start AA meetings with a cocktail hour."

"At the last debate ... Mr Antonovich held aloft a little bag of plastic needles and described it to a newspaper reporter as a 'photo opportunity'," said Ward. "Now, if I wanted to, I could have held aloft a plastic bag fuil of dollars from developers."
Replying that he has allowed only "responsible development," and is the author of the county's oak tree ordinance, Antonovich defended his campaign contributions.

"Mr. Ward is saying he is the . only person who can vote independently. The idea that contributions corrupt the system is absurd."
Antonovich touted his proposed mpnorail system during the debate, saying the monorail would shuttle commuters eastward along the Ventura Freeway corridor to downtown Los Angeles at the rate of 28,000 people per hour.
"During the eight years that Mr. Ward was Supervisor, he spent those years attempting to put in a train system, one which is more expensive than the Alaskan pipeline," charged Antonovich.
Said Ward, "The idea of a monorail was suggested Antonovich in 1980. How soon did he act on it? In 1988 .. .I'm the only locally elected official in 50 years to get a train actually running."

Perhaps the most renowned tree in this valley, aside from the Oak of the Golden Dream, is one in Pico Canyon forming a nearly perfect living arch. It has been written about in scholarly reports and featured in Ripley's "Believe It Or Not" series. For that reason, it is know far and wide as "The Ripley Oak."
. .

In the magnificent rock-rimmed valley ; where trees and even the very earth we live on are treated as callously as dirty disposable diapers, the word "Develop,er" has come to be
tantamount to calling someone Genseric the

tonously dull rows upon rows of tract home, which, in time, . will become instant slums. Then they have the colossal audacity to name their projects "The Oaks" or "River Oaks", "Oak Plaza" or some other meaningless epithet after decimating the oaks and replacing them with eucalyptus from Australia, European poplar and cedars of Lebanon.
Recently, news floated down from Pico that another native grove has been destroyed because the developer feared a harsh new edict from the newly formed City of Santa Clarita might still the chainsaws. Baloney! The parcel is not even within the city limits, which end at Interstate 5.
However, this particular builder may, after all, have something of a social conscience, for the unique Ripley Oak arrd a companion tree have been enclosed behind a towering chainlink fence, which extends well beyond their driplines, preserving them from the mindless wrath of bulldozers and skip loaders. A dr:ipline, by the way, is a band extending down from a tree's farthest spreading branches to the

Within this boundary, an oak has developed a complex system for keeping itself alive. Acorns and leaves provide food and cover for a variety of animals which repay their host by fertilizing the soil.
Within this valley, eight varieties of oak exist, under the general species of Quercus, which have managed to change and adapt to lessening rainfall and lowered water tables over the ages. While they might be considered survivors, oaks have never adopted a defense against ripsaws or tractor blades. For the first time ~ a million or so years, they are entirely dependant upon the whim of mankind. It would seem that the Ripley Oak has been spared by a corporate whim.
Who knows how long ago the sapling sprung from this piece of ground beginning to grow straight and tall as an oak should? It would have to be at least 200 years ago, and probably a lot longer than that. The seasons came and went -summer heat, winter floods, and, no doubt, a few earthquakes. A band of Tataviam Indians discovered oil deep in the canyon. This was valuable for waterproofing baskets and rubbing arthritic joints.
To mark the way, they bent the tree into a horseshoe, attaching the top to the earth. Most oaks did not survive this treatment, yet somehow this one did, continuing to flourish in this odd inverted U-shape while sending branches upward. Across the land\,in time came Spanish _ padres, Mexican dons ori' dark prancing stal- lion, Yankee soldiers with sabres clattering, oil men seeking riches at Mentryville, sweating farmers, cattlemen chewing dust, automobiles, freeways, smog and tract homes.
The Ripley Oak has stood a silent witness to the whole pageant of life in this valley. Let us hope that it will continue its silent vigil, undisturbed and respected.
The Ripley Oak is located a quarter of a mile west of Interstate 5 on Pico Canyon Road, which is the continuation of Lyons Avenue in Newhall. It is on the left side behind two fences, one protecting the property and the other protecting the tree. Stevenson Ranch Development is across the way.
For a look at how this monarch might have
grown had it not been tied down, drive around the comer on Chiquella Lane to the end of the street. Where Sage Crest intersects, there stands a truly stately Quercus agrifolia, looming 50 or 60 feet into the sky with widebranching limbs that must shade a quarter of an acre. May it be tliat no one begins calculating how many board-feet are contained in its arrow-straight trunk.

A driver that drives while intoxicated, even if driving slowly and 'carefully, is still a drunken driver.
That's what Debra Anne Beard, 31, of Redondo Beach found out just after midnight, last Wednesday.
Beard was intoxicated but carefully driving her '78 Cadillac 30-40 mph on Hwy 126 heading east when

Two tractor-trailers with double loads collided Wednesday evening on the southbound Golden State Freeway, south of Tempiin Hwy., spilling Gallo wine and almond hulls over the third and fourth lanes. The accident caused lane closures for six hours. The truck hauling almond hulls rear-ended the truck carrying the wine, sending the rear trailer halfway up onto the trailer in front. The almond hull truck was crushed in, sending the almond hulls skittering across the freeway, mixing with the wine in a bartender's nightmare. The driver of the almond hull tractor, Edgar Wilson, received minor injuries. The accident is still under investigation.

Photos By Gary Thornhill Ronald Taylor, 53, was driving his big rig loaded with 40~foot pipes, eastbound on Hwy. 126, Wednesday afternoon, when he came to the 40 mph curve. He approached the curve at approximately 40 mph, when he drifted to the right shoulder of the sharp curve. He tried to correct his steering when the pipes shifted, overturning his big rig. Eight of the 40-foot-long pipes, weighing 5000 lbs. each, were thrown over a steep embankment on the side of the road. The end of one of the pipes can be seen at right. CHP Officer Dave Pokorny takes a
statement from Taylor, who was not injured.
Possible Fraud
A 57-year-old man complained to Sheriff's deputies recently that he paid $700 for a dog of questionable pedigree.
. The man said that when he purchased the dog, a rare Chinese SharPei, from a 27-year-old Saugus man in May, he was told the dog was a registered pedigree and that the registration papers would be mailed to him within 30 days.

However, the papers never came, and the dogs seller, who has reportedly bilked at least seven other local Shar-Pei purchasers, does not have any Shar-Peis registered in the United States.
"Shine it on or do what you have to do," said the seller when he was told the Sheriff's Dept. was being asked to investigate the problem.
Attempted Grand Theft

Deputies zeroed in from several directions on two men who were behaving suspiciously in the 28000 block of Eagle Crest Drive in Canyon Country shortly before midnight Thursday.
One man, Carlos Magana, 18, of Inglewood, pretended to be asleep on the front seat of his car when the lawmen arrived.
The deputies ordered Magana to sit up, revealing burglars tools and a wire loop used to open car doors on the seat where he had been lying.
An acquaintance of Magana's, Manuel Flores, 19, of Inglewood, was then spotted nearby in the vicinity of a pickup truck.
A search of the truck revealed that a metal cap on the truck's ignition switch was missing, and a knife was found. When the truck's owner was summoned, he was surprised to find the knife and the tampered igntion switch.
Deputies then arrested the men for attempted grand theft.
Frying Pan Attack

A SO-year-old Castaic man was struck on the head with a frying pan by his daughter early Thursday morning.
The woman told deputies that her father had been drinking and ha J assing her that night, preventing her from sleeping.
At one point, he demanded she open her car trunk and remove a vacuum cleaner.

When she refused, the father attempted to open the trunk with a screwdriver.
When the daughter ran outside to stop her father, he hurled the screwdriver at the girl, cutting her leg.
The daughter retaliated by cracking her father on the head with the frying pan.
Broken Nose

A 20-year-old Canyon Country woman was entertaining a man in an office building in the 23000 block of Lyons Ave. late Wednesday night when she heard a loud knock on the door.
Fearing that the knocker was Christopher Lambert, 24, of Lake View Terrace, the father of the woman's infant daughter, the lady and her companion attempted to hide. ,
The strategy failed, with Lambert reportedly splintering the door frame and forcing his way in.
He then grabbed the woman by the throat and punched her in the face, according to witnesses.
The woman was diagnosed as possibly having a broken nose, but her male friend e0::aped injr.

Dear Sir,

With regard to your contest concerning your motto -while not being a Latin scholar, but being from the same country as the Iron Duke you refer to, I believe that an appropriate translation would be:
"Let not those who know not their fathers impede your progress or in other ways grind you down. '
Good luck with your project.
Yours sincerely,
Keith Paul
Dear Sir,

In response to your request for an immediate translation to lllegitimi Non Carborundum, an American idiomatic common translation is: "Don't let the bastards grind you down."
Knowing the circumstances involved per your inaugural editorial and similar ones, albeit representing the Signal, I couldn't agree more. Best of luck in your new endeavor!
Sincerely, Richard K. Edell, Ph.D. (Oceanography not Latin)

Coaches Ill the' Classroom: Shakespeare, History, Anatomy

Harry Welch discusses drama.
By Emory Holmes II Citizen Staff Writer
Canyon's Welch
There was a problem with the pit.
Harry Welch, English teacher extraordinaire glanced back at the drawing he had made of it on the
board then back at the perplexed stares of his first-period students at Canyon.
"How can I illustrate?" he asked
himself aloud, absorbed by the
question and growing more

His eyes searched the classroom: there were 20 or so students, all wide-eyed and watchful; stacks of textbooks on Shakespeare, world literature, and the novel were piled high on a nearby table; a number of green and gold Canyon football dufflcbags laid in a comer; an old football trophy stood in the distance perched atop a high cabinet.
Suddenly Welch moved to the center of the room.
The students of his Shakespeare class were seated in a-semicircle around him.
He pulled two empty desks and pushed them together to form a precarious table.
Then he jumped on top of it and, towering over his students he said in triumph, "This is what the actors on a Shakesperian stage looked like to the people in the pit."
Harry Welch is as driven by the plays of Elizabethan England as he is by the offensive and defensive plays of his Canyon football team.
Today, however, the bard's the thing.
Welch is discussing the design of the theater in Shakespeare's time, "Have you ever been to England?" he asks.
He retuns to the board and around his drawing of the stage and pit area he chalks in a series of concentric arcs indicating the area where the noblemen sat, above the rude and merrymaking peasants in the pit.
Welch described Shakespeare's England as an island forever brooding under foggy mists and stormclouds.

He describes the advantages the noblemen had in escaping occasional bad weather but asserts that Shakespeare was acutely aware of the foibles, distinctions and interests of "the classes".
"Shakespeare had the common touch," Welch says, still towering
over his students ' from atop his makeshift stage. "Sometimes his plays were inside jokes for the common folk. They were bawdy...Does anyone know what "bawdy" means?" Welch asks.
No one does; he steps off his stage, grabs a dictionary, and tosses it across the rooms to a female student, "Do you mind?" he asks rhetorically.
She looks it up.

Hardly anyone knows it, but Welch, besides being an often enigmatic and explosive presence, is also a very funny one.
The class discovers that "bawdy" means "obscene" "indecent", "offcolor" ct cetera.
"Shakespeare was aware of all different kinds of pressure: social pressure, emotional pressure, sexual pressure, physical pressure. Shakespeare was a genius."
Welch, of course, in his other life as coach of the Canyon High Cow-

boys is someone quite familiar with
various types of pressure, too.
Cowboy football, Welch says,
means three things: sportsmanship;
caring for one another; and keeping
things in perspective, whether that
is winning or losing.
Welch, like Dick Flaherty and
Dave Carson, the two other SCV
high school football coaches, was
hired as a coach because of his abili
ties as a teacher.

In the words of Canyon High principal Dr. William White, who is an avid sports fan, and former ath-. lete and coach, "Welch is a class act all the way. We hired him because he's a teacher. We want to turn out good students, and that is what our program is all about."
Saugus's Flaherty
On the other side of the hill, at Saugus High, history teacher Dick Flaherty sits at his desk in a brightly lit relocatable classroom on the outer fringe of the Centurion practice field.
His class is packed.
Flaherty, who was a doublemajor at CSUN, his alma mater, now teaches the classes he majored in there: physical education and
U.S. history.
An outstanding athlete in high school and college, Flaherty is comfortable and assured in his role as teacher-coach.
Since he is seated, one cannot see lhat he is wearing short pants; and his muscular forearms and booming voice belie his casual and occasionally sunny demeanor.
Right now he is all business.
He is discussing the Japanese destruction of the Russian fleet in 1904 and '05.
"If you can't place an issue in its historical context then it really won't mean anything to you," Flaherty tells his class.
'The Japanese destruction of the
Russian fleet was the model for
their attack on Pearl Harbor o
December 7, 1941. History has a context."
Flaherty's class is decorated with saftey and anti-drug posters, and a prominently displayed world globe.
Flaherty is an intense competitor, and is impossible to miss him on the football field among his fellow coaches and players.
Flaherty is in his second year at Saugus.
After turning around the losing program in his first year (from 0-10 to 4-6) Flaherty must not only teach his players the fundamentals of playing, but the fundamentals of winning as well: they're just not used to it, he says.
Still, Flaherty's squad had to settle for a 13-13 tie in its season opener with Hoover.
"I realized we have good kids here but we're just not used to winning. If Hart and Canyon are in a tight game, they expect to win it; our kids don't yet. We haven't developed that winning tradition."
Flaherty is a former assistant

coach to the strong-willed Harry Welch.
Two walking timebombs.
"Harry and I are both intense," Flaherty says with appropriate laughter at the understatment. "I admire him tremendously as a coach. He knows excactly what he wants and doesn't allow anything to deter him from it. His focus is on one thing: winning. I can get away from football on Sunday; I don't think Harry can."
But Flaherty uses the same word as Welch to describe his own philosophy: "perspective".

War to the present.
Everyone thinks Viet Nam is a hot topic, Coach Flaherty tells them. But in this class students will be
expected to know more about Viet Nam than what is contained in a few movies.
They'll have to know about the long history of struggle in Southeast Asia; and of the French, the Chinese and the English involvement in Viet Nam, and how and why the U.S. got involved in the conflict in the first place.
That's what history is, says the teacher -coach:
All those entwining threads of time, event, personality and place that give life its startling and enduring relevance.
History, he says, has a context.
Hart's Carson
Crosstown in Newhall, Hart High' s first year coach Dave Carson picks up his lesson plans and strides out of his office in the gym to greet his body conditioning class.
Carson is dressed in new black slacks and shoes, and a bloodred Hart High coaching shirt.
He moves with the quiet assurance of an athlete.
A victorious athlete.
Carson is a man who knows very well about the contexts of history. Viet Nam is no abstraction to him. He lived it.
Carson was stationed there as a

Canyon Loses to Bakersfield
Continued from Page 13
two plays after the Canyon touch
down and dashed 57 yards to put
Bakersfield back on top 12-7.
But then the roof caved in on the Cowboys.
On the ensuing kick-off, Peery had Lrouble handling the ball at his own 10, and a crushing hit popped the ball loose and back into the Canyon end zone where Ty Bowden recovered for a Driller touchdown.
Geary ran for the 2-point conversion and Bakersfield was up 20-7 with 5:05 left in the half.
Going back to more typical Cowboy football, Canyon marched 80 yards to score just before halftime.
Peery scored on a I-yard run with 58 seconds left in the half and Steve Mann's second extra point left Canyon behind 20-14 at halftime.
In the third period, a Canyon drive had stalled at the Driller 19 when massive 6'4, 250pound Driller tackle Derek Stevens sacked Baltau on fourth down.
But on the following Bakersfield play, the Cowboys recovered a fumble and eight plays later snuck in for the score behind center Lenny Grimaldo.
The go-ahead PAT by Mann was blocked by the ever-present Geary to leave the score tied 20-20 with
3:06 left in the third quarter.
Brady Beck's interception of a pass at the 9:57 mark of the final period set up Bakersfield's winning touchdown.
• Beck returned the ball to the Canyon 18 and three plays later Allison took the option pitch from
Geary and beat the Cowboys on a 6-yard run to the end zone comer to
put the Drillers ahead for good.
Allison added two points on a
swing pass from Geary to take a
28-20 lead.

The Cowboys made a gallant try for the tie as they took over on their own 8 with 5:42 left in the game.
Nineteen plays later Canyon had moved the ball to the Bakersfield 7 with 29 seconds left.
On third-and-four, beat the blitz and slipped up the middle for an apparent score.
But Canyon was flagged for holding and the ball brought back to the 23.
After a pass interference call on Bakersfield moved the ball down to the 12,. Beauer (6 passes for 105 yards) missed a ball in the comer of the end zone.
Another pass to Peery in the end zone was broken up and Baltau's final shot with no time remaining was just beyond Beauer's grasp.
"We had the ability to beat both Hart and these guys," Cowboy assistant Coach Brian Stiman said. "We're just playing very uncharacteristic football."
"We're not sure what's going to happen from here," he said.

Saugus Hammered by Alemany
Continued from Page 13 Indian's first and only punt back down their throats on a 56-yard romp to score.
Unfortunately, it was nullified by a holding penalty.
Next, Lopata pushed his team downlield with grit and style, before firing a 16-yard strike to receiver Scott Cutchall who sliced in easily
for a score. S're we vas ,so Remarkably, this score was also called back because ofanother holding penalty.
On the final play of the game, with second down and 30 to go,
Lopata was intercepted by Indian defender Bill Markowitz on the 13, with six seconds remaining on the clock.
The Indian's mercifully ran out the clock with the scoreboard reading Indians 38, Centurions 3.
Centurion coach Dick Flaherty said .-iat the loss "was easier than last week. We knew Alemany was a pretty good football team. They're very big and quick and we were pretty thin. They have a good back (Robuck) and their quarterback throws well."
Flaherty also lamented the loss of his three key players, Menta, Franchino, and Keene.
Regarding his own quarterback dilemma, Flaherty said "I think George (Lopata) did a good job. We've just got to do a better job of protecting him. We've got to find some linemen who are willing to do a job. They dominated our young line."
Looking ahead to Hawthorne, the Centurion's tough foe next week at COC, Flaherty said "It's going to be LOugh again. We'll be playing a team with a lot of speed and an outstanding quarterback. It's not going to be easy."

Chamber Golf Has Classic Finish
The Valencia Technical Systems team finished 10 under par to win the seventh annual Santa Clarita Valley Chamber Oak Tree Fall Classic Wednesday at Vista Valencia Golf Course.
The Chamber-sponsored tournament consisted of 144 players competing in a scramble event with a shotgun start.
It was both the first tournament win for VTS and the first time the four members played together.
The team consisted of VTS' owner Garry Angelotti, Dwayne Ogle, John Relic and Bill Lopez.

While we greatly appreciate the publicity given our group by the SCV Citizen's write up in the inaugural edition last Sunday, we feel that use of the word "swinging" used in the title of your article to describe our social group is one we consider to have an unflattering connotation.
In future articles regarding our group, we would appreciate ommission of that adjective to describe us.
Thank you again for promoting our group.

Flavor of Bile
I have just read through, and enjoyed, the first edition of The Citizen. I can say this with "pureness of heart", having no previously-embittered fee Ii ngs about The Signal. With that foundation set, however, I would like to offer an opinion.
It seems apparent that The Citizen is "cliff-hanging". The arms that hold it, dangling, on the edge of that cliff are free enterprise and freedom of the press. It also appears that there are one or more forces at work which are concertedly stomping the fingers at the ends of those arms. I find the situation appalling. Its flavor is that of bile.
This is no new situation . It's
not even rare enough to be mor. bidly amusing. It's part of the rot that is beginning to chew away at the fabric of our wonderful country. It's the "I-want-what-I-want and I-don't-care-if-it's-fair and the-hell-with-you" attitude that is being held over, by popular demand , for the umpteenth week... like some diabolical broadway play. But this isn't a play... it's real life. It's the ugly twin to the "it's your problem now attitude" that seems to also be

attracting record crowds . ..

Whether The Citizen rises or falls should be based on its own merit or faults; its reflection of the community, the quality of its writing, and a score of other checkpoints that belong in a performance review and not an editorial.
No person, corporate entity, or government agency should be able to limit its longevity or potential, providing that it operates according to the laws of our great land. But laws are only as good as the spirit and pureness-ofintention that are the true threads in the woven fabric.
Perhaps our attentions should be turned to motivations. What motivates attempts at bindingand-gagging The Citizen? Can any pureness-of-intention be found there?
Somewhere in our Constitution it should state:

My hope is that, with this lesson before it, The Citizen will never stoop to "shovel journalism". I wish it luck in its evolution and survival.
Bob Spelleri
Canyon Country

Last week I read approximately five stories about the Hart/ Canyon football game . This includes pre-and post-game articles. I was looking for something I didn't find--an emphasis on participation .
Coach Welch may have been "disappointed" with his team, but I was disgusted with him. Nowhere did he mention how hard these young men train. Nowhere did he mention the time students spend attending practice, studying game plays, etc. Nowhere did he mention how our schools benefit from the students' involvement in this extracurricular activity.
"Disappointed?" Not me. Not with the students. I'm sorry they don't all get to play. They should. They've all been told the same thing--school sports teach cooperation, encourage involvement, promote health, etc. The reality is, school sports are teaching that only winning matters; that involvement and participation don't mean muc,h unless you come out on top. Many students show up faithfully to practice only to sit on the bench all season because the school won 't "win" or be the "best" unless the "stars" play.
Few sports scholarships are awarded. Fewer professional contracts are awarded. Therefore, on a strictly statistical basis, they may as well all play. On a particular day, a particular team will win. But nobody loses when commitment is emphasized over scoring.
Yours truly,
Sally Chase Clark

Illegitimate Answers to the

Great Illegitimi Contest
The letters below were sent in answer to last Wednesday's editorial. They are all winners, but were selected for publication because they represent a variety of responses.
The correct answer is in the first letter.
Winners will be announced a week from today. Losers will be enrolled in a Romantic Language class at the community college of
their choice.

Congratulations to the staff of the new Citizen
I noted with great interest this morning that there were two papers on my driveway, as usual .. . I was surprised to find that one of them was The Citizen. I guess that the carrier for another local paper had slept in today!
A loose translation may be "don't let the bastards grind you down."
Gene Taylor

The translation of The Citizen's motto 'lllegitimi Non Carborundum' is -Don't let the bastards wear you down.
We received the first issue of The Citizen last night, and it was very enjoyable reading. It's high time we get a paper which presents the news of our valley without a bias opinion.
Congratulations and good luck!
Thomas R. Doemland

My Jesuit professors at Loyola probably would believe it, I have confused my Latin phrases once again. In the words of Ronald Ziegler, my letter of yesterday is now inoperative. "Sue the Bastard" is lnus Vocus Spurious, not lllegitimi Non Carborundum. Frankly, as embarassing as it is, I now have a lapse as to the correct meaning. A thousand pardons.
All my best wishes for success in your endeavor.
Very truly yours,
Bruce A. Nahin

P.S. After dictating above, new inspiration hit me. Could it be "Do not let the bastards wear you down?"
The Citizen:

The translation of your motto, as I have always used it, is:
Don't let the bastards wear you down.
Congratulations on the . new paper!
Lloyd Heeger
Dear Citizen:

Looking for a nice, palatable, accurate translation of "lllegitimi Non Carborundum?"
Might I offer "Ad Infinitum Nauseum Aeternum?"
Wouldn't you say that sums it all up, much the same as "Cogito Ergo Dumb" applies most quaintly to the war chant of the clown "All for one, and yo is one, and has won, and so forth?" Maybe?
Anyway, I have now won your promised reward. Give it to me.
Ed Dorsey
Dear Sir:

"lllegitimi Non Carborundum" was a favorite exhortation in my family when I was growing up in London, England, many years ago. Our translation (and I come from a family of renowned classical scholars) was "don't let' the bastards grind you down" -a perfect slogan for your beleaguered newspaper. However, if you want a bowdlerized version for publication that won't shock the local citizenry, I would suggest replacing "bastards"with "those of dubious ancestry".
May The Citizen go from strength to strength -the Santa Clarita Valley needs you .
Jenni Gainsborough

P.S. If I win the prize -I do, of course, already own the complete works of Ovid so I'll take the whiskey.


lllegitimi Non Carborundum succinctly translated reads: Don't let the bastards grind you down. Though I am not a graduate of West Point, I do believe that school long ago adopted this Latin phrase as their motto.
Good luck with your fledgling publication.
Kevin Gillogly
Santa Monica
Dear Citizen:
I think that your illustrious motto "lllegitimi Non Carborundum" loosely translates to "don't let the bastards grind you down" -to which I add, in English, "Amen!"
Keep up the good work!
Jeanne Sisson

Dear Editor:
How fitting the new Stars and Stripes and the new Citizen both launched in the same summer. Congrats to Dennis Connor and his crew and lawyers. Also, best wishes to the Newhalls for providing a witty and local paper .
As tor the meaning of your motto, "lllegitimi Non Carborundum," how about "Genuine not Counterfeit."
Bob Ginn

Santa Clarita
P.S.I know not Latin, but this is what I feel you'd want your paper to be.
Dear Editor:
We were surprised to find our family motto on the ribbon above the phoenix's wing tips. For over 32 years of marriage my scholarly spouse, the presiding_judge of the Newhall Municipal Court, has claimed that "illegitimi non carborundum" translated to "don't let the bastards grind you down." Tell me he hasn't been putting me on!
Virginia Byram

While I am sure this is too late to win either the collected works of Ovid or my favorite Kentucky corn whiskey, I do want you to know there are some of us 'who can recognize a famous battle cry when we see one.
Don't let the bastards get you down!
So right! So fitting! Fight on!
I don't want to miss a single issue of the Citizen. Enclosed is my paid in advance subscription for one year!
By the way, the literal translation for illegitimi non carborundum is "There must be no grinding down by the bastards," although to be perfectly correct, I believe "illegitimi" should have a "s" at the end of it. Picky, picky.
Good luck!
