"We're obligated to pay for an indlgent's attorney fees so we have to," said Judge Reagan. Other financial matters attended by the conunissi(mers Monday included authorizing County Auditor Thomas Simmons to pay $28,000 worth of monthly bills and $525 annual dues to the National Association of Counties. The Judge said the Washington, D.C.- based lobbying firm represents the majority of counties throughout the nation in dealing with proposed federal legislation affecting the local govern- mental entities. The annual dues are based upon census populations and a letter read to the court Monday by County Clerk Joe Dan Fowler noted this year's fees were increased by either 15 percent or whatever the 1986 census projected population would be, whichever amount was greater. The projected 1986 population of Henderson County was listed as 41,635 and Judge Reagan said all future dealings with federal agencies would be based on this new statistic.

The study, covering 69 cases in which pets were found to be dying of cancer, said guilt over the animal's suffering and death "was found to be an impor- tant variable" and recommended that veterinarians ditcourage pet owners from making the decision alone and on the spot. The research, carried out for a master's thesis by veterinary student Vicki Bailey of Spring, offers some of the first documentaiion that many people feel pets are members of the family and not just four-legged com- panions. Auxiliary sets 0 "If they feel they need one more year to evaluate the problem, we need to give it to them," Speed said. "I hope they're not stalling for time." "I'm not interested in how they (the administrators) feel," Merman responded. "I think sometimes we tend to over-administrate. I think we need a change." The board voted 4-3 in favor of the current policy after Speed voiced concern on the timing of changing this late in the year. "It's too late to change. We are required two reading to change policy and there's just not enough time to do it before school starts. Jan Shoed, Lana Perkins, Mark Ferrell and Speed voted in favor of the current policy.
