The Saline VOLUME 18, NUMBER 27 - Wednesday, March ±5; 1967 10c PER COPY - $4 PER YEAR TREET REPAIRS MAY SURPASS $10 Shape Saline Fair Plans Advancing plans for the 1967 Saline Community Fair, discussed at a meeting of the board Monday night, included addition of a new event to the calendar, and re-alignment of department supervisors. The Fair, which will span five days this year for the first time, will open on Tuesday, September 5, and run through Saturday. The new event, expected to attract as many city dwellers as farmers, is a garden-tractor pulling contest under the chairmanship of Elmer Diuble. The little tractors will compete under approximately the same procedures as their heavier counterparts — "a mechanical pony-pull", said one Fair Board member. Negotiations to hold the Fair at the Farm. Council grounds are in process, according to Don Wiedman, chairman; discussion centers on proposed rental increases and proposals for permanent fair installations to cut costs per year. ' BOYS VANDALIZE RESIDENTIAL AREA Vandals struck a number of residences around the intersection of Mills Rd. and Hollywood Dr., at 2:30 a.m. Sunday, police said. Several boys were seen on foot by a home-owner, it was reported. Among the vandals' activities: several small trees broken off, mailboxes knocked down and one taken..away; stop sign and spefcd limit sign bent and pulled out of their mountings." Mr. and Mrs. Robert Starling have been named supervisors of this year's pony show, formerly arranged by the late Karl Weavie. Mrs. Weavie has volunteered assistance, as have Mr. and Mrs. Lloyd Feldkamp. Stanley Poet and Mr. and Mrs. Pete O'Mara will be in charge of agriculture exhibits, replacing Robert Hammond, who filled in for Oral Bassett last year. " William Weinhardt will represent the Saline Fair at a Michigan Fair School, to be held on the Michigan State University campus on March 30. FALSE ALARM The Saline Fire Department was called out at 9:30 a.m. Monday on a false alarm.

This figure includes increases of $179,900 in operating expense and $342,500 in building expense. It is estimated that (on our increased tax liase) it will take aii overall increase in total school taxes of about three mills to raise the necessary extra income. This will mean that on property anywhere in the Saline Area School District which would sell for $20,000, the taxpayer would have an increase in big school tax of about $30 per year. This $30 increase includes about $5 per year for the proposed natatorium (pool).

The only new work included in his $100,000 estimate is the paving of Clai'k St., extension of Harris, and application of the final coat on Henry and S. Lewis streets. Pavement of Bemis will pi'o- bably have to be postponed because of the greater urgency of other work, he said. Sections which should be repaved include part of Pleasant Ridge, part of N. Lewis, part of S. Harris, and all of Bennett St. Also in need of .new paving are Russell St., Mills Rd., all of Spring, S. Ann Arbor St., Davenport, and part of Detroit St. . . . but the latter would have to be torn up anyway, Strait, noted, since a new storm sewer is to be installed there this summer. One of the most heavily damaged streets is N. Ann Arbor, beyond the railroad tracks . . . but it stands virtually no chance of a new pavement because of its "half and half" status. From, the tracks to 418 N. Ann Arbor St., it is -in the city, but;it "should be lowered in places where it's higher than tne sidewalk", Strait said. Tho^ cannot be done until the areaT," in the township, from residence number 418 to th:e Cheese Shoppe, can be rebuilt .at the same time "' FaHher but, to the MEHA •site, only the east side of the street is in the city, so that any improvements there would'b,e a joint city-county operation. But' the county Road Commission has its own troubles with winter damage, the most extensive in years. City streets will "get worse before they get better", observed Strait. "The frost isn't all out of the ground yet." How much of the needed $100,000 can toe budgeted for streets is not yet, certain, ■since the Council's discussion meetings for the 1967-1968 budget have just begun, and the city's equalized valuation will not be known until the Board - o f Review hearings are completed. Going into, the Board of Review (which'will meet on Monday to hear appeals) the city valuation is up approximately $12,000,000 over last year . . . but this is subject to the Board's adjustment, either up or down, Assessor Robert Harrison pointed out. Last year, the Board dealt with approximately 100 appeals; this year, only about .30 are expected, Harrison said. Retiring after many years, as. board member and president of the Saline Mercantile1 Co., Arthur Heininger (right) this week was presentedUwith a plaque "in appreciation for invaluable and-dedicated service . . ." He was a member of the boatd from 1931 until 1967, president from 1932 until this year, and manager of the company from. 1938 to 1959* Ti^e plaque-was presented by a board member, Ernest Girbaeh. ~ New- president, ^elected &t fhe -annual meeting, is Alwin Marion. Other officers are Aithur Lutz, vice pre- . sident; Norman Wiedmayer, secretary; Alwin Emkbein- . er, treasjirer; and boardHmembers Webb Harwood, Owen Zahn, and Girbaeh.
