Last week, he agreed with Pearson's assessment, calling the new districts "a compro- mise." Supervisor Don Clark, whose district sustain'ed mi- nor changes, praised his col. leagues for finally reaching an agreement. He compared Plumes County's situation with the redistricting woes in Butte County. The five supervisors in neighboring Butte county scrambled to make sure that each of them now occupies a piece of Chlco, which is the county's largest community. "I'm very satisfied that we did the best Job we could do with this thing," Clark said. !

Obituaries: Page 8B Classifieds: Page 2D Opinion: Page lOB Letter=: Page 11B Budget OK'd The Plumes County Board of Supervisors has thrown its support behind a $67.7 mil- lion budget. The supervisors, who will vote the new budget into law Sept. 4, said they wanted to be prudent this year. Most departments are see- ing modest increases in their budgets, but few of them are getting the kind of money they envisioned. Supervisor Don Clark urged departments to "share the pain" of balancing the budget. Controversial budget is- sues faced by the supervisors included new funding for tourism, public safety and economic development. As usual, big portions of the budget are devoted to public safety ($6.3 million), roads ($15.1 million) and so- cial services ($7.7 million). For details, see Page IIA.
