There are schools, cafe's, gro- cery stores, hardware stores, a department store, a doctor, gas stations and garages, and a bank. For adult recreation, there is a domino parlor and pool tables in the local beer joints. The younger children can be intertained by the school play- ground equipment or in the municiple park. But what about the teens? The young adults? They are too young to be comfortable in the same place as the older folk who don't like the same kind of music or atmosphere. And they are too old for the swings m~d merry-go-rounds that Per- kins has to offer.

I have been able to with the men on these jobs and get a job finished. I that I can work with the rest of the council and the cit" izens of Perkins to help achieve what we the citizens ~" of Perkins want for our city. ~ There was an article in the Perkins Journal %~ week talking of our Police Department. I agree ~- we need an adequate police department; but as far ~- our crime rate in Perkins, I have lived here for 23 yearS' ,~ and have seen little crime. When one makes the state'* ~ ment that the older citizens of Perkins don't want Per~' kins to grow~ they should stop and think who made per* kins what it is today. The new citizens of Perkins evid~ ~ ently moved here because they liked the city of Perkip~ and we owe this to our older citizens. Lets work together young and old and try to keep hnproving Perkins as we have done in the past. C.L. (Bud) Redus ' Candidate for Town Council (PAID ADV.)
