THE OHIO COUNTY t IMES, tiARTFORD, KENTUCKY, AFRIL 7, 1977 3 0 After predicting a slow start for his Ohio County High baseball team, Coach Bill Leach and his Eagles have registered three consecutive wins on the young season. In the opener last Wednesday, the Eagles accounted for only eight hits but laced the Butler County Bears 14- 4. Steve Autry picked up the win in the game shortened to five innings because of the 10-run rule in high school baseball. Kevin Gardner hit a double and single, stole a base and drove in a run. Mike Westerfield cracked a triple. Ohio County continued its winning ways Thursday with a 12-4 drubbing of McLean County. Gardner, Richard McCrocklin and Autry led the 13-hit Eagle attack. Gardner had a pair of singles and a double to account for three runs batted in. He also stole two bases. McCrocklin banged out a single and double and also accounted for three runs batted in. He swiped one base. Autry had a stolen base and two runs batted in to go with a single and double. Dale Westerfield was the winning pitcher. Prior to last Friday's game with Madisonville, Leach lined his players up in the dugout and warned them that Madisonville would be out for blood. You'll have to be ready because they will come at you with a lot of strong hitting and pitching," Leach told the team, Last Friday afternoon the Eagles won their third straight by whipping the Maroons 7-3, Steve Heflin picked up the mound win. He was backed up by the con- tinued good hitting of Gardner and Autry. Gardner poked a single and double and drove in a run. He also stole a pair of bases. Autry had a double and one run batted in. Saturday's games against Central City and Whitesville and Monday's game against Bowling Green were postponed because of rain. The Eagles host Warren East Thursday afternoon and travel to Owensboro Senior Friday. The team leaves for its annual Florida trip Saturday morning.

But today, thanks to modern wildlife management, beavers are so numerous in some sections of the Southeast that control of their numbers is necessary. --New environmental protection regulations severely limit the steps a professional wildlife manager can take to control wildlife "pests." --Wildlife biologists can now use space satellites to help them classify and evaulate wildlife habitat. These are among the items members of the Department of Fish and Wildlife's game management division discussed at a day long continuing education conference in Frankfort March 30. Sponsored by Auburn University and the Kentucky fish and wildlife department, this short course for said. Hill, who presented the session on beaver population control, Dr. Michael Golden, assistant professor of forestry at Auburn and Chuck Danner, a wildlife biologist with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, were the instructors for the conference. Golden spoke on the forest habitat classification, stressing the im- portance of evaluating productivity of land for wildlife purposes. He described a new technique he and other scientists at Auburn are developing, a technique which uses satellite photographs. Golden said that a satellite map showing the forest habitat regions of Kentucky should be available soon. Danner, who is stationed in Lexington, brought the participants up to date on the latest theories and techniques of wildlife pest control. "We used to speak of the eradication of pest species," Danner said.

Although it is now on a trial basis, this program may become per- manent, according to Commissioner Arnold L. Mitchell of the department of fish and wildlife. Future programs could be funded by a combination of state and federal money, Mitchell Highway 81 (I0 miles Southwest of Owensboro) MANAGER populations in Alabama, where he has been engaged in a variety of beaver control experiments. Most beaver damage, Hill said, occurs from the flooding their dams cause, although their diet of wood can cause destruction of timber or ornamental trees. Hill's studies show that commercial trapping offers the best control measure, since it only eliminates the beavers from problem areas but also provides income for the trappers. A Prestonburg native, Hill is a former biologist with the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources. He thinks beavers have the potential for improving the watershed quality in strip mined areas of Kentucky by their dam building activities. Approximately 20 wildlife managers from around the state attended the conference. Despite weekend rains, several headwaters have white bass activity and black bass fishing remains fair to good on many lakes.
