4A--The Malakoff News, Thursday, April 28, 1961 By JOHN COX Banks within and surrounding Athens and Henderson County showed almost a 15 percent gain in deposits during the first quarter of 1961 over a corresponding period of 1980. In figures released this week II area banks reported 1302,461,491 making a first time grand total of over $200 million in deposits. Leaders at savings and loan institutions have expressed op- Umism and their deposit growth backs up their sm/les.

Total deposits for Athens banks climbed ever nearer to the $100 million mark as $92,842,458 was reported when the Inst/tut/ons closed for the day at the end of March this year. On the west side of Henderson County, the move from Trinidad to Seven Points is more and more proving to be beneficial for the Cedar Creek Bank (formerly the First State Bank of Trinidad). The bank led all of the 11 institutions in percentage growth, recording 46.42. percent. At the close of business in March 1980, the Trinidad facility reported $4,492,000 in depoaits.

The four commisMoners said in liter telephone interviews they cud not think the unit system was a good idea. "I don't think that (un/t system) will work," Precinct I Commissioner Jim Blakeney said. "We'd have to have an engineer that would require 135,000- 130,000 a year and I don't think pooling the equipment would offset that. We're already helping each other out Prec/nct 2 Commiss/oner Fred Box said he didn't think the system would work because all four of them might need the same plece of equipment at the same Ume and "I might have to bring the equipment way out, close to 35 miles [~ from Athens, and I'd have to spend : 'i most of my Ume travelling."

County Attorney Allen Boswell ap- peared before the court at Monday's he wouldn't need for the pay to go into effect until Jan. I, 1982. "As far as the budget is concerned," he said, "it wouldn't even come up until the 1982 budget is discussed. Each member is paid $100 a month." "The budget end is what I was worried about," Precinct 1 Com. missioner Jim Blikeney said.

Boswell told the court he needed to be on the Juvenile board because he had been handling all,of the Juvenile cases since the first of the year. "In our circumstances it is critical that we have someone up here to dispose of the Juvenile cases quickly. Our two DAs are home-based in Palestine and I agreed to handle the cases because I felt there was a need." He said he had disposed of more than 20 Juvenile cases since the first of the year and that if he was go/rig to con- tinue to handle them it was important he be on the board. "I need to he able to participate in the discussions and decisions the board makes because I am involved in the day-to-day problems with the juvenile: system," he said. He also told the commissioners that County Judge Winston Reagan said he would like the court to pass the resolution so that Rep. Elton Bomer could try to get it passed during this legislative session. In other business, Reagan said the court was responsible for the civil defense program and "right now we don't have one." Aubrey Taylor had agreed to serve as the civil defense director in October, 1980, but had resigned because he was never pal& He was supposed to receive $200 a month, with the county and the state spUtUng the cost. The commissioners said they didn't have the money to pay Taylor $100 a month and Reagan said they needed to find it. "It's like insurance," Reagan said. "You might not ever need it but who knows when we'll have a disaster. If we had one and we're sitting here without any type of program, it'll look real bad ff we were to get taken to court.

"We need to take immediate steps to redistrict and we need to employ a professional to advise us and see that this is done correctly.' ' The commissioners all agreed that the lines had to be re-drawn. They all said they thought they could start the re-dlstrict/ng and call outside help in when they were close to finishing. "I think the commissioners can go a long ways," Blikeney said. "We can get legal advlce in the end, but pretty Commissioners Box and Tarrant said a yearly audit was a good idea, while Blikeney and McLean thought it wasn't worth the expense. "I think it's a good idea," Box said. "The taxpayers of Henderson County would know what their money is being spent for each year." He said the cost, which would be about $17,000, might cause a problem though. McL~m and Blnkeney said they "This would create a task: your major crimes in rape, murder, Fields said.
