Downtown Fire Ordinance The Malakoff City Council decided Monday night to rewrite its city fire ordinance to expand the types of allowable construction within the downtown fire zone. At the same time, it reviewed })riefly the current fire zone for the business district and dr;tided to ask the Federal Fund Use Planned tlenderson County Com- missioners Court authorized a planned use report for $345,628 in fede|'al funds at ts regular meeting Monday. The planned expenditures, only described in general use terms, included $20,628 for muhipurpose and gene|'al government capital expendi- tures: $80,000 in public safety, $80,000 for public transportation, $110,000 for health, $15,000 for recreation, and $40,000 for financial administration. In other action the com- missioners authorized adver- tising for bids for improve- ments in Coffee City Park, Chandh,r Park and tloliday Ilills Park. They also agreed to seek bids on a washer and dryer fm the county jail following a request by Sheriff J.W. Brownlow, who told the con> nfissioners the jail was having problems with losses ot laundry when sending it out. The commissioners side- stepped appointment of a constable for l)recinct 1, de- ciding to wait until the next election for the vacancy to be filled. Dr. Buster (]eddie, Mike Berry, l)urwood B. Kirby, Bob McGee and Joe Alexander were among the names submitted for the post. They also postponed any action on adjustments in pay for justice of the peace salaries until after it considers next year's budget. Approval of public weigher bonds was given for Theodore Murray and Dedra ttollowell. C.F. (Patl Cope of Cancer Care Associates in Carrollton, asked the commissioners to allow him to poll county employes about a group cancer policy with the county to withhold the agreed sum from the employe's salary. The matter was taken under advisement. Bicentennial Parade Here July 3 The Malakoff Bicentennial which funds will be raised, to Luther Ellis, general chair- not been set.

The present fire ordinance, city manager Ron Turner pointed out, excludes all construction within the down- town fire zone except brick and mortar. "Smce the passage of that ordinance, all-metal and con- crete-block structures have popularized themselves in the construction field while main- taming acceptable structural standards," he said. In discussing liberalizing the type structures allowed, I.W. Brown said the 1949 limits would retard the pro- gress of the city. The city fathers kicked around the subject of fire limits, but postponed an)' action pending a report from members of the fire depart- mont. Council memhers also voted unanimously to purchase out- right a hand-held radar gun now being used on a lease-pur- chase plan at a savings of some $50 in interest. Purchase price on the radar gun which was leased in 1974 is $553.12. ,loe Riley Brown commended city employes for putting out mosquito spray. In the discussion which fol- h)wed it was disclosed that about half the city is sprayed every time the weather and atmospheric conditions are right. Spraying is not done if it Is raining or if the wind is high, it was learned. In the mayor's report, A.M. (tluddyt Thompson told the aldermen that there had not yet been any official designa- rio. for the name of the city park on Cedar gtreet. "'The park commissioner has recommended the name KRt ) Park, and 1 think it is a good recomn;endation," he said. tie said the name would be left up to the council and that the name would be submitted for approval to the families of the donors. lh' noted that new equip- ment purchased following authorization of $2,500 expen- ditures by the cotincil had })et,|l put in place, and was ah'eady m use at the city pm'k.

His mother was a pure-bred beagle and his father was a friendly neighbor of question- able lineage. So joyfully we took him home to be friend and com- panion to my three children... to divide his time between the comforts of the air condi- tioned interior of our home and to wander about the wooded neighborhood at his leisure. Little did we know what problems faced us as the cute, cuddly lil feller evolved into an over-sized beagle with all the markings of every imaginable pooch except the beagle. The cute little teeth that nibbled excitedly at young fingers soon became discon- went with such simple fare. Shoes, house plants, even the rubber welcome mat outside the front door became his fare. Two bedspreads developed huge gaping holes even while l slept beneath them. So he was banished to the outdoors.

But faced with a move to a more rural setting this spring, I winced and said to myself things will get better when we are away from such close neighbors. And so we moved. And the carnage continues. Still, shoes get eaten. And now he's found a far more enticing neighbor than ever hefore-R.H. Lee Park. A few overturned grills, stolen sandwiches and pur- loined picnic goodies later l'm faced with the dilemma again. What does one do with a 9-month old lovable pooch who just doesn't understand the laws of theft and the right of private property. One who is all over you lovingly when you don't want him around, and won't come when you do want him, tteld at the end of a length of chain he's a heartbroken mutt whom bring a tear to the hardest heart. Fencing an acre to keep him in is a cost, I can't bear at the moment. So how do you convince someone else they should adopt your pet when you know how aggravating he can be? Odds are, you don't. My chiklren don't want to give him up, for sure. But I'm afraid we must. Though they coming, it was noted. ! Couneihnen di.scussed the number of speeding tickets being handed out hy city police, but no action was taken. AI lnmon and Ernest Wilson both said they had received complaints "about excessive ticket-writing. Wilson said that now that school was out more tickets near the Junior High School were being written than during school. In answer to a question from Inmon concerning city street signs, Turner said the holdup at present is Jack ltearn who is in the process of updating the city map. tlenanfing of streets to suit postal requirements has been one of the things that has delayed the ordering of signs, he said. Mayor Thompson also voiced an interest in con- ducting a |flood donor drive in Malakoff and said he would contact the Rotary Club to see if they would help sponsor one. Leroy Rogers said he would contact the Lions Club to ascertain their interest. pet him far less than they should, the mere mention of passing him on to someone else engenders tears, loving pats. and accusations along the lim,s that I'm the meanest father in the valley. But the time has come. The man down at the park wants to strangle him, and I can't say I blame him. My wile has bought the last pair of shoes she intends to that aren't outgrown by my children.

Anybody who fits this descriptkm may call me here at the office, and if after a personal rundown of why you don't want him, you still do, then I'll turn him over to you, And change my address and get my phone number unlisted real quick, just in case you change your mind.
