The letter noted that a station wagon and driver supplied by the Athens Fire Department currently transports the mechanism. The fire chiefs' group also requested the county provide fuel and insurance on the pickup. Precinct 1 Commissioner Jim Blakeney told the court he would be able to give the firefighters a 1974 ton, fleet-size pickup his road crews had been using as a yard truck. Blakeney said he would transfer the exterior fuel tank from the truck to the pickup he currently uses and then drive his personal vehicle for county business and apply for fuel allowances from the county. The commissioners adopted a resolution authorizing Blakeney to make the switch. The resolution provided for the truck title to remain in the county's possession and all of the four commissioners to equally share in providing the fuel.

Royall Blvd. 489-2341 Malakoff RANDY MOORE By FRANK SOPUCH Henderson County Extension Agent Randy Moore will return shortly to the Texas Hill Country of his youth when he takes over as agricultural extension agent in Mason County later this summer. Wednesday was Moore's last day on the job in the local county extension office here. A three-year veteran of the Texas Extension Service, Moore's new headquarters will be halfway between Austin and San Angelo. The 26-year-old agent said Mason is approximately 50 miles from the Moore homestead where he was raised near Florence. His new post is also close to his wife, Julie's, origins. The Moore's have a three-year-old son, Rode. "Mason County is primarily ranching country," explained Moore. "They raise cattle, sheep, goats and hogs as well as approximately 7,000 irrigated acres of peanuts." The Tarleton State University alumnus noted that the move will be a promotion in his extension service career. He will be the lone agricultural extension agent in Mason County. There is also a horticultural and home economics agent serving the area, according to Moore. Henderson County was the Florence native's first assignment in the ,ex- tension service. He pointed out that his three-year tenure here was definitely a good reference in applying for the Mason County post. "Henderson County is considered a very progressive area as far as 4-H youth activities and agriculture is concerned," Moore commented."Slnce I arrived here in July, 1980 our 4-H membership has quadrupled with four new clubs being formed and adult lenders increasing from five to 63." Moore's Henderson County duties centered on working with area 4-H clubs, including the four new additions of the Frankston, Trinidad, Cross Rea s and Sunshine 4-H. While attending Tarleton State in 8tephenville Moore worked as an agronomy technician at the nearby Texas A&M UnlversRy experimental station. After obtaining bachelor of science and master of science degrees in agricultural education, he managed a peanut cooperative in Dublin before coming to Henderson County. Moore =mid his replacement here would probably not be named until September. By JOHN H. COX A correlation between record- breaking construction and banking increases for the past 12 months has yet to be made. However, area bankers tie much of their current business success to recent building activity and express concern that an interest rate boost might stymie Many financial followers feel the Federal Reserve Board will keep a careful watch on the money supply, a key element in the fight to keep in- flation under control. Last Friday, the money supply (M-I) fell for the first time in several weeks. Many financial observers speculate the probably play hock with local con- struction," said First State Bank of Eustace president Bill Ezeil. "Area construction is good now, but an interest increase will hurt for at least the next three to four months," expressed Kerens' First State Bank's cashier C.E. "Bubba" Blissett. One Athens banker said he could not forecast how slight interest rate fluc- tuations would affect the building in- dnstry but did foresee increased rates. "T-Bill's have risen about one per- cent in the last six weeks," said Athens' First National Bank's vice president David Monk. "With that in mind we can expect interest rates to follow during the next quarter." However, the three together had the year-to-date growth any area facilities.
