EDITORIAL Cooperation We know that we are members of a community. But sometimes our vision of what that community consists of is limited. And that can create limits on progress and growth. While most of us are citizens of formal communities, we are also members of a larger community. The towns around Cedar Creek Lake have much in common, which makes all of us a communtiy. This is one of the fastest growing areas in Texas. It is an area that holds great promise for those now living here. How well that promise is fulfilled is up to each of us. If the residents of the various communities around the Lake become involved in petty squabbles among themselves, no one will benefit. If, on the other hand. the people, and the leaders, of these communities work together to create a better life for all residents of the area, everyone will benefit, individuals and communities alike. How can such cooperation be achieved? One step is for individuals to forget the prejudices against other nearby communities, realizing that everyone in the area benefits if the area progresses, and everyone m the area suffers if the area fails to progress. A gain for any community in this area is a gain for all of us, not an occasion for jealousy. An organization exists through which areawide cooperation can take place. The Cedar Creek Lake Association has shown that area communities, business firms, and individuals can work together to benefit the entire region. This organization has done a good job in the past. With even wider support in this area, it, can do an even better job in the future. By having a membership with as wide a base as possible in the regson will allow the Cedar Creek Lake Association to continue its present programs and projects, and to expand its activities in the future. The Cedar Creek Lake Association has shown that area communities and individuals can work together to create a better way of life for everyone in the area. There are other means through which regional communities can cooperate for the benefit of all, d every step should be taken to try to explore and implemen such means. The term "community" is usually used to define a definite geographical location, such as a town or city, but there can also be a "community of interest", and those who live in the Cedar Creek Lake area are members of such a community of interest. It is to be hoped that everyone m this area will work to support this community of interest, to the betterment of the entire region. Spe:ial Rate S3. | YUf ][][11 FEBRUARY MALAKOFF NEWS P.O.

Both houses of the legislature have agreed on the proposal to lift the present six percent ceiling on match- ing state contributions to the pension funds (replacing it with a 10 percent limit). If voters approve, retired teachers will get boosts in their benefits ranging from five to 18 percent, and pensioned state employees will get an additional 12 percent. Cost of the teacher benefits' raise is estimated at about $98 million and the state employees' pension improve- ments at $21.8 million. Meanwhile, the House of Represen- tatives also approved for the April 22 ballot a proposed constitutional change to raise legislators' pay from $400 to $600 a month and expense allowances from $12 to $30 a day for length of a lawmaking session. Senators may balk at the pay raise proposal which has been advanced in more than half a dozen forms over the last 15 years, without convincing voters. Governor Dolph Briscoe said he will actively support the legislative pay raise proposition if the Senate goes along with submitting it on the April 22 ballot. A quick recapitulation on emergency spending matters already before the fegi'slature (or finally passed) indicates about $310 million in outlays have been committed during the first month of the 64th lawmaking session. 2a.s FEBRUARY 20 Shonda Crocker Ruth Wheatly Elmer Phillips FEBRUARY 21 George Estes Janett Stanfield Denice Loven Camille Cliver FEBRUARY 22 Juanice Loven FEBRUARY 23 Debbie Stanfield Ricky Burton Donald Hart FEBRUARY 24 Ronnie Westbrook Charles Gilbert Linda Fleming FEBRUARY 25 David Bankston Reminiscence 20 YEARS AGO Bob Farmer of the Malakoff High School coaching staff, according to the high school publication "Tiger Rag," is credited with stellar basketball recently as a member of the Henderson County Junior College all-star team against the celebrated "Harlem Magicians."
