Friday NEW PLANT TO PO8TPONE OPENING CUSHING -- Fleet- wood Enterprises will de- lay opening their $1.5 million dollar plant in the northeast part of Cushing until their is turn around in the economy for this region, basically Texas and Oklahoma. Treasurer David Mar- riner said the mobile home market for this region has gone down, a great deal of which was attributed to the reduc- tion in the oil economy. It is thought that the Cush- ing plant opening may be as late as November. The new building will be com- pleted inside and out and security measures taken to protect it from vandal- ism or fire. It will be ready for production when it does open. Appar- ently the state is going ahead with the industrial access road. Park (From Page 1) the high school baseball season. Theresa Niles, who was elected last Wednesday as chairman of the Perkins Parks and Recreation Board said the board was trying to make a park that would have use to people of all ages. "I got on the parks board because I have four small children and I had to take them to Stillwater parks. As a citizen of Per- kins, I was under the mis- conception that Roscoe Emerson Park was a city park and I couldn't under- stand why the city didn't take care of it, so I'm real- ly encouraged by what's going on," she said. "Once we get some grass out there and get~ the stickers under control, I think 1 II be real proud to say I'm on the park board," she added. Hall said the board would be developing two additional sites for parks in the future. thru Thursday 61 9 S. MAIN 372-21 I I UNFAITHFULLY Blame It on YOURS PG Rio R Mat. Sat. and Sun. Mat.

Doctors are often accused of malprac- tice, administrators of maladministering, mechanics of skulldug- gery, lawyers of being shysters, teachers of be- ing lazy,etc. Every profes- sion has its cross to bear, and reputation to live down, so to speak. We're not sure just now we got off on this subject. I think we're not the only affected by this kind of thinking in recent weeks and months, and I think it time to start taking a look for the end result that everyone is trying to accomplish, and tha~ is to make this community a good place in which to live, where folks can live with peace of mind and respect for one another. XXXX Saturday afternoon Yvonne and I got away from everything to attend the matinee and I 'm still not sure, several days later, just what I thought of that highly rated movie. "rerm~of Endear- ment," is chock full of good acting, but the sto- ry was terrible. It was an immoral sludgpot, and all the extra-marital cheating and attitudes towards the l institution of marriage and decency were pretty hard to stomach. We have weighed the overall effort, though, and believe it was worth the time invested. We'd be interested in what you thought about it. -O- ers.

Many people wondered how this was possible. He stated the Seiling Public Works balance was $316,142.67. The SPWA operated the city owned water, sewer and natural gas systems. There is also $134,813.35 in the City of Selling treas- ury, and $60,641.38 in the Revenue Sharing Funds, plus $14,429 in the sinking fund to meet all bond pay- ments. The city owned hospital bond is being re- tired at $2,000 per month and is ahead of payments. The gas distribution sys- tern bond will be paid off in 1988. A recent $1 per month hospital fee was taken off the utility bills because the hospital bond is nearly paid off. '~Seil- ing's bonded indebtedness is nearly nil because of the revenue generated by each issue. Selling residents ap- proved a million dollars in revenue bonds over the past 20 years to construct a natural gas system and a 16-bed hospital that is the only on in that area surviving except Wood- ward, even though it received statewide public- ity for several years as the board closed it down be cause they could not find a doctor. It now has four doctors and is a success. The city hall remodeling, to be completed with present city funds, will feature a new police department office, two jail cells, a board room/cour- troom facility and offices for the city clerks and city manager.
