During his writing days Mike Fitzgerald, sportswriter at the Las Vegas Sun newspaper, became one of Al's fishing buddies. Fitzgerald, now sports editor for the Columbia Daily Tribune in Missouri, recently wrote a touching column recalling his days with Henderson's Al Cieri. It's a column that Jim Goff and every friend of Cieri will enjoy reading. Little Sean brings memory of Big Al By Mike Fitzgerald The sky was a brilliant blue as the day dawned with so much life and so much promise. Sean Roy, 8 years old, was going fishing and his face was brighter than the rising sun. The pond was a sheet of glass, reflecting the azure sky, and a Canadian goose flapped ita wings near the far shore. A light breeze barely moved the new leaves on a nearby tree and two small rabbits Bcxirried for cover in See One Man's View page 2 ammonium perchlorate manufacturing plant may have caused the blast. The report was prepared by the PSC's Regulatory Operations Staff in the months of inspections following the blast that caused two fatalities, more than 300 injuries and property damage estimated in excess of $70 million. In the Executive Summary portion of the report, it said that "a 16-inch high-pressure natural gas pipeline operated by Southwest Gas Corp.'s Southern Nevada Division (Southwest) ruptured during the catastrophe," but did not cause the explosion. The summary explained that the "primary purpose of this investigation was to identify probable non-compUances identified during the course of the investigation were not responSee PSC, Page 2 PATRIOTS—Kayann Black models Indian artifacts which incorporate national symbols into the design.

Photo by Jeff Cowcn Kerr-McGee move cleared, Apex bill passes By Ben Baker News Staff Writer A bill that would allow the sale of federal land in Apex to Clark County passed the Senate unanimously Tuesday night. That bill is instnunental in allowing Kerr-McGee to shift parts of its ammonium perchlorate production facility out of the Henderson area. The bill would permit Clark County to purchase more than 20,000 Homeowners plan LID 818 meeting by other By Ben Baker News Staff Writer Homeowners protesting the current Section 19, Local Improvement District 818, lawsuit will meet at 7 p.m. tonight in the James Gibson Public Library, according to City Councilman Andy Hafen. "It will be a lively meeting. We hope everybody will get a picture of where we stand," he said. The general topic of the meeting will be what the homeowners can do about the lawsuit brought property owners. "I've had people contact me [and they were] livid, scathing. About 20 people have contacted me asking is there a countersuit [they could bring]," he said. As a city official, all he and other members of City Hall can do is provide updates to the property owners. They can offer no recommendations or decide what action to take next, Hafen added. See LID, Page 2 acres at Apex, some of which would be used by Kerr-McGee. Some revisions were made in the biU. It will be returned to the House of Representatives where supporters expect it to pass easily. Kerr-McGee plans to build a storage and blending operation for AP at the Apex site. Officials at the plant are also planning to build an auxilliary plant at Apex. The Henderson plant will remain in full operation. "We are building a production facility out there. We are not moving. We have no plans to move, currently," said Annita Bridges, manager of media relations. Bridges estimated that the new plant will increase KerrMcGee's AP production by 20 million pounds per year. The new facility, planned for 3,700 acres, is expected to cost about $60 million when complete, Bridges said. No construction has begun. Delays, such as getting federal approval to buy the land at Apex, have stalled construction efforts. Once a groimd-breaking ceremony is held, the new building should be completed within one year to 18 months. Bridges said. Council vetos traffic board suggestions By Ben Baker News Staff Writer The Henderson City Council voted unanimously Tuesday night to deny two requests DAMAGE INSPECTION-An unidentified Henderson -firefighter examines the damage to a car and a truck following a rearend collision at Boulder Highway near Greenway Road that sent two persons to University Medical Center with serious injuries. Cole Cameron Cook, 24, driver of the truck, was arrested and charged on two counts of felony driving under the influence of alcohol. Pkoto by KatlMtiM A. Sc*U from by the Citizen's Traffic Advisory Board. The first proposal was a suggestion to anlend current regulations to make cul-de-sacs bigger. The board mentioned congested parking as the reason for the request. 'The current radius is sufficient," said Mark Calhoun, PubUc Works director. The council did request that the City Hall staff look into parking regulations for large RVs and large boats, the source of contention, according to some residents. The other request was for traffic-warning signs on the comer of Ocean and Van Wagenen for a blind resident of that neighborhood. The resident, Leon Paris, asked for a new crosswalk, the signs and a crossing signal. A school crosswalk is in place at that intersection. The Council denied the request based on staff recommendations and cautions. City See Sign, Page 3 More workers will be hired to man the Apex facility, according to Bridges. She added that some workers at the Henderson plant will move to Apex. The move to Apex is the result of public outcry in the wake of the Pej)con disaster. Some Henderson residents have expressed fear that the Kerr-McGee operation could suffer a fate similai to that of Pepcon. 4Inside L.
