The District Advisory Council is comprised of 15 private individuals who rep- resent different interests and advise BLM officials on policies and programs con- cerning the management of 10 million acres of public land in southern California. The six positions to be filled include one wildlife and one environmental rep- resentative. Council mem- bers serve three-year terms and may be nominated for reappointment for an addi- tional three-year term. Five council members are eli- gible for reappointment. One renewable resources position, which represents botanical interests on the council, will retire Dec. 31, 1997. The nominee selected for this position will serve an initial two-year term.

Mooney wins gold medals Howard Mooney is one fellow who can prove that you don't have to see what you're doing to be a cham- pion athlete. The 41-year-old Pahrumpian, who is blind, captured three gold medals in the 1997 Silver State Games in Carson City last weekend. Mooney's strength paid off in the Masters Division of the Power Lifting com- petition, winning the bench press with 354 pounds, the squat with 353 pounds and the dead lift with 475 pounds. The 1,182 pounds he lifted was shy of his per- sonal best of 1,234 pounds. The victories made him eligible to compete in the world meet for blind ath- letes in September in Colo- rado Springs, Colo.
