Letter To The Editor: Editor, Neil Hartigan, the Chicago Democrat running for Governor, has publicly announced that he is in favor of gun control. He announced this stand when he met with a group of conservation writers who are recently following the gubernatorial race.

Mr. Hartigan's views on gun control and the rights of those who hunt and fish in Illinois is disturbing to me. Hartigan doesn't understand that hunting is an activity important to thousands of sportsmen who reside in West -Central Illinois. It's important that hunting rights are not neglected by the next Illinois Governor and that we retain the right to use guns legally. I intend to vote for Jim Edgar for Governor on November 6.

Edgar grew up in a small town and is a hunter himself. He understands the importance of hunter's rights and gun ownership to those who live in rural Illinois. Jim Edgar is being supported by various groups working to protect our heritage, including the Illinois State Rifle Association, and other organizations dedicated to preserving our right to hunt, fish, and trap in the state. Neil Hartigan represents the view of most Chicago politicians who believe that private gun ownership should be banned. Protect your rights! Vote for Jim Edgar for Governor on Election Day.

Citizen's Lake Undergoes Renovation The Citizen's Lake north and south area on the west edge of Monmouth is undergoing a two-year.

renovation, Conservation Director Mark Frech announced Thursday. "In recent years these two lakes, which comprise 21 acres, have developed an undesirable sport fishing due to overpopulation by Frech said. "This project will improve the sport fishing, the fish habitat and provide nesting islands for the giant Canada goose flock of western Illinois. We hope to re-open the lake to fishing in Frech said the first part of the renovation project will involve a complete drainage of the shallow, north lake and a 7-foot draw down of the deeper, south lake. Qualitysized sport fish will be salvaged during the drainage and stocked in nearby public lakes.

In late October, the remaining fish population will be rehabilitated. A complete restocking of bass, bluegill, redear, and channel catfish is scheduled for November. Frech said the lakes will remain partially drained during summer of 1991 to enable Illinois Department of Transportation to obtain fill soil from the lake basin for use on a nearby road construction project. The DOT's soil removal from the lake basin will create one larger lake of about 28 acres.
