THIS IS LITTLE MISS 1969, the official "First Baby of the Year" in the Saline area, Cheryl Holly Desbrough. The little girl, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Ron Desbrough of 1081 Judd Rd., was born on January 9 at St. Joseph Mercy Hospital, and so became the welcome winner of gifts from many local merchants. Among thoose who sponsored the d Father Time Javcees Give Certificates to Two Men Here Jaycees presented two local young men with Distinguished Service certificates, at* their Bosses' Night Banquet, Wednesday, but the major Distinguished Service Award* was not given.

Site Comes Under Fire An ordinance to regulate mobile home parks in Saline, and the proposed RMH zoning of a Maple Rd. site, were both tabled by Council after a well- attended hearing Monday evening. Maple Rd. residents emphasized that they were "neither for nor against''5 trailer parks . . . providing they weren't on Maple Rd. The proposed new mobile home ordinance, which lacks only final Council approval to become effective, was read to the overflow audience which attended the session. Th city can regulate trailer parks but cannot prohibit them, City Attorney Allan Grossman explained ; and failure to have any land zoned for them would probably be construed, bv the courts as an "intent to prohibit".

The ance. court held that the unimple- mented zoning ordinance in Warren was "not a reasonable exercise of the police power." No petition has been received for RMH zoning on the proposed 11.6 acres on Maple Rd., they said. The planners "looked into several sites", contest to greet Cheryl Holly's arrival were the Y.I.P.
