ARDE. cENTER Located West of Gibson's Discount Center Hwy. 85 & 274 Seven Points 432-2851 40 lb. Bag Cow Manure Henderson County Precinct One Commissioner Jim Blak- eney called an emergency meeting of Henderson County Commissioners Monday. He asked approval from other conhaissioners to complete a job on Mill Run Road near and in the city limits of Athens, and to dispute, reports published in the Pea Picker attributing road work at Hen- derson County Junior College to Blakeney's crew. Blakeney, serving as chair- man pro tern in the absence of County Judge Winston Rea- gan, who is on vacation, told the court he considered the meeting an emergency since he had a man waiting to go to work on the Mill Run Road project. County Attorney Billy Bandy, arriving early in the meeting, told Blakeney that if the meeting had not been properly posted he re- commended that commis- sioners discontinue the dis- cussion. Blakeney told Bandy that the I0 a.m. meeting had been posted at 8 a.m. which he understood was the time limit for emergency meet- ings. Bandy left the court- room to research the law, and returned later confirming Blakeney's interpretation for calling emergency meetings. Orvil Pirtle, past president of Henderson County Junior College, addressed the court explaining his volunteer part- icipation in work being done at the campus and his em- ployment under an East Texas Council of Governa- meat (ETCOG) program. Pirtle said that he had ap- peared before commissioners several weeks ago to ask for equipment and men to help slope the banks of a creek on JCJC property, a request that commissioners ap- proved. Pirtle said that he had no contact with the road work underway at the college, received no salary from the college, and had not request- ed that commissioners help with the work on the Fine Arts Building Road. Contractor Jim West of West and Wyrick told the court that the grader photo- graphed in the Pea Picker and alleged to belong to Precinct 1 actually belonged to his company, and was operated by Billy Wallace. West said the road project under question, to the Fine Arts Building, was being built under contract by his firm with the college, and that no county equipment has been Mixon's Beauty Shop Hwy. 175 Eustace 425-3180 Kodene Mixon - Owner Hazel Lane & Lois Taylor- Operators Ann Reese.

West in- dicated legal action might be taken if necessary to prove his crew had done the work. Blakeney requested and re- ceived approval from other commissioiners to work Mill Run Road inside the city limits of Athens. Blakeney said that his men had begun work on Mill Run from Road #753, but had held the job up outside the city limits. Athens City Mayor Tommy Smith, present at the meet- ing, said that he had crews cleaning the ditches along the road and the city had reached an agreement with Blakeney to buy the road oil for work done within the city limits if Blakeney's precinct 1 crew and equipment could do the work. Smith asked the court if he needed to appear before the entire group of commis- sioners in making requests for shared work between the city and county. "I not only have done it this time (made an agreement with a commissioner while re- presenting the city) I've done it before with previous com- missioners. We certainly want to be in compliance with the rules," he said. Smith said residents and officials of the City of Athens would be grateful for any joint effort, and pointed out that Athens residents pay county taxes as do residents of all other incorporated cities within the county. Commissioniers unan- imously approved Blakeney's motion to work on Mill run Road to Cayuga Drive in Athens city limits. Blakeney asked Bandy for his opinion on county equip- ment working on city streets. Bandy told the court that it was legal for commissioners to designate work on city streets, but that there may be some formality about the proper legal proceedure. Blakeney told a representa- tive of The News that he had 10 YEARS AGO financial condition, the mer- Members of the Malakoff Band Club have elected Mrs. Melvin Crouch as president of that organization for the 1967- 68 school year.

Crops are an average and with the farmers in good chants are doing good busi- ness. Farm Prices Under Pressure With this vear's feedgrain crop expected to reach the level of 1976, prices to farm- ers will continue under pres- sure, says grain marketing specialist with the Texas Agricultural Extension Ser- vice. However, the recently announced increase in the farm loan rates for corn and sorghum should cause the prices of these grains to increase for current levels after the harvest season ends. The new national loan rate for sorghum is $3.39 per hundred- weight and for corn is $2 per bushel.
