Making the presentation is new president Wayne Callaway. (Staff Photo by Ann Rounsavall) from page one service is discontinued at both places," she said. Mrs. Blythe said that the ordinance that regulates collection of water bills states that bills become delinquent on the 20th of the month. "After that," she said, "we send out a 24 hour notice. If the account is not paid by that time ser- vice is discontinued and a $25 reconnect fee is charged before service is rein- stated. Arrangements are sometimes ntade for a day or so in special cases," she said. In this week's issue of The NeWs Airheart states that he asked to see the city books but was refused by Mrs. Blythe. She responded to the charge by saying that Airheart did ask to see the books, and when she asked which books he replied, "all of them." She did refuse to pull all of the city books out at one time for his inspection, since some were being worked on at the time by employees, "I asked him several times which books he wanted to see," she said, "and each time he replied, "all of them." He did ask to see the delinquent book, and I refused him that request," she con- tinued. "Our records are open to the public," Mrs. Blythe stated, "but only on reasonable requests. I did not feel it was necessary for me to bring out all city books at one time for his inspec- tion." Mrs.Blythe also pointed out that the annual audit of town funds is on file at city hall. The audit covers all transac- tions up to Sept. 30, 1980, the endof the town's fiscal year. The audit was con- ducted by Ran Massey, CPA, of Dallas. "As of March 26 we (the town) have $149,404.54 in total assets in the hank," Mrs. Blythe said. "I feel like we are in pretty good financial shapeifor a town of our size." The controversy should end Saturday as voters make their decision at the polls. Polls will be open at city hall at 7 a.m. and remain open until 7 p.m. "Strong beliefs win strong men, and[ then make them stronger." Walter Bagehot 'Love Thy Neighbor as Thyself." In-coming president Wayne Callaway said that the Malakoff Chamber of Commerce has a history of progress and plans to continue to strive for that goal. Callaway said the Chamber has many new projects in the making, in- cluding new welcome signs, new Christmas decorations, and other projects. Callaway said the the youth, school, and industry should be considered the cornerstone of Malakoff. Out-going president Jack McCool said that the past year had been a suc- cessful one for the Chamber after com- pleting a beautification program with the help of the city; making con- tributions to both the Malakoff Volun- teer Fire Department and Malakoff Public Library; providing Christmas decorations for the city with the help of Texas Power & Light Company; and their work to support local business. McCool presented Jack Murray with the Director of the Year Award citing his work toward Chamber goals. During the evening the Chamber of Commerce l~resented a $1,000 check to Betty Norwood, J. D. Waller and Howard Watson for use at the new Malakoff YMCA Park. All three in- dividuals have been instrumental in promoting development of the 21.5 acre park on land donated to the Henderson County YMCA for use as a park site. In accepting the check Mrs. Norwood expressed appreciation to the Cham- ber, to Texas Clay Industries in Malakoff for their help in development, and to Malakoff businesses who have supported the project. County Judge Winston Reagan presented Mrs. J. A. McLain with a check for $4,000 from County Revenue Sharing funds for the Malakoff Public Library. Reagan explained that the 202 Hwy. 31 E. 8:00 a.m. - 5:30 p.m. bald eagle About 300 American bald eagles have been counted in their traditional win- tering grounds around the lakes east of Wichita Falls.

J.D. WALLER, BETTY NORWOOD AND HOWARD WATSON were all honored "Tuesday night for the work the)' have done to secure a new park for Malakoff.
