Water rates raised 

By Sandy Hinton 
Staff Writer 

Due tothe Louisville Water Company's 
increased rate and the proposed $1-1/2 
million sewei expansion In Jefferson- 
town, water and sewage rates in Jet- 
fersontown will be raised effective 
March 1. The Increase will add 'i0 
cents a month to the minimum water 
rate an t sewer chances will rise by 
about 46 cents far minimum usage. 

The city's water and sewage com- 
mission voted unanlniouslv to raise the 
local rates at their meeting Tuesday, 
Feb. 12, according to Richard L. Maz- 
zoli, city council representative (Hi the 

The increase is based on a high 
industrial rate -- the lamer the con- 
sumer, the larger the Inc rease. The 
majority of residents in the city 

pay $3.50 per 

h for water service. 

The increase will mean a new bill of 
$4.20, Mazzoli said, for the minimum 
usage of 4,000 gallons per month. 

Top user in the city is Celanese 
Coatings Company' in the Bluegrass 
Industrial Park, which averages 
1.520,000 gallons of water a month. 
Their Mil will Increase from $944 
per month to $1,434, Mazzoli said. 

The average business In the industrial 
park falls in the 10.000 to 20,000- 
gallon range, and their bills will go 
up an average of $3.18 per month, he 

Sewage rates will go up to $2.74 
per month for a 4,000-gallon water 
user. The Increase is not a flat per- 
centage, but based on a sliding scale 
determined by the amount used, Mazzoli 

The additional revenue realized from 
the increase has been calculate! al 
approximately $80,000. Federal funds 





for local sewer plant expansion have 
been impounded, so the Increase will 
help pay for that project, Mazzoli said. 

"There is still an outside chance lhat 
we can get federal money for the ex- 
pansion and if we do, then the rates will 
go back down," Mazzoli said. 

The sewer project will serve a 
population of 26,200 when complete. The 
commission mm is awaiting final 
plans from the engineering firm In 
Lexington before advertising for Mds. 

The Louisville Water Company, sup- 
plier of Jeffersontown's water "has 
us on a utility rate, higher than Ford 
or GE," said Thomas A. Witherspoon, 
water and sewer company manager. 

Mazzoli believes this Is a form of 
discrimination. "We are being put 
into an unrealistic category," he said, 
"industrial rather than municipal. 

"We are providing a service, not 
for fun and profit, but Just to meet 
costs and expansion," he concluded. 

Old, new judges differ on DUI case 

The transition to a new police court Judge In Jef- 
fersontown has raised questions about the handling 
of ■ local man's arrest for drunken driving and 
reckless driving last Dec. 8. 

The case Involves Merlin J. Schneider, 30, of 2504 
Ballad Blvd. Schneider had his operator's license 
revoked for six months for a conviction for drunken 
driving. But there appears to be no court record 
of any conviction on that charge. 

Former Police Court Judge William E. Cummings 
said this week the revocation Is the result of a 
clerical erro -. But newly-elected Police Court Judge 
Raymond J. Ward believes Cummings made the error 
and the revocation should stand. 

Schneider was arrested by Sgt. Maynard Mattlngly 
and Office Ronald Morris, and given a Breathalyzer 
examination which showed his blood alcohol level to 
be .24. (.10 is considered evidence of being under 
the Influence of alcohol.) 

Former Judge Cummings handled the case when It 
f ame to court Dec. 10. Court records show Schneider 
was a patient at Pleasant Grove Hospital on LaGrange 
Road from Nov. 10 to Dec. 26, 1973. 

The Cummings court docket lists the charges only 
as "RD.DC" whlrh are abbreviations for reckless 
drlvine and disorderly conduct. The drunken driving 
cnarge was not listed In the docket book. 

The disposition stated, "plea guilty -- license su- 
pended (sir ), remanded to cusiody of Pleasant Grove 
Hospital. Costs paid, $9.45." 

Asked why the charge of drunken driving did not 
appear in the docket, Cummings offered this ex- 
He said the charges had been "merged" to reckless 
driving and disorderly conduct on the recommendation 
of then- Prosecutor Joe Pike with the agreement of 
the arresting officers. 

"It was In a pre-trial conference In the conference 
room that they decided to merge the charges, but 
I asked when they came before me that he volun- 
tarily surrender his license while In Pleasant Grove, 
but I didn't send his abstract to Frankfort." 

(Abstracts of arrests and cunvtulons are required 
to be sent to the state Division of Driver Licensing 
to allow state authorities to apply points against li- 
censes and suspend or revoke licenses In accordance 

"The docket entry wasn't clear; we failed to write 
it was merged," Jud(?n Cummings said. "The girl 
Just put in the wronfc charge, but there was never 
any question In court," h   said. 

Present (Hurt Clerk Mrs. Jerrio Kavlrh, however, 
said "the whole docket was In his (cummings') 

When Judge Ward took office this year, one of Ms 
first acts was to docket the Schneider case for hear- 
ing on Jan. 14. 

Ward said he docketed the case "because the 
original arrest record shows, in Judge Cummings' 
handwriting, the case was continued to Jan. 14. 
So I placed it on the docket for Jan. 14, not knowing 
it had been tried." 

At the Jan. 14 session, the docket listed both original 
charges of reckless driving and drunken driving. 
When Schneider failed to appear, a bench warrant was 
Issued. The warrant later was withdrawn, Ward said, 
when Schneider telephoned and claimed the charges 
had been withdrawn In Cummings' court. 

Ward said he then processed the Cummings findings, 
sending an abstract to Frankfort showing a convic- 
tion for drunken driving. 

Kenneth Sparrow of the Division of Driver I 
said he received the abstract, together with a 
stating Schneider had been convicted for driving 
while under the Influence of alcohol 

Sparrow said, "we pulled his license Feb. 5. Last 
week he and another fellow came in and I told him 
he would have to go back to the new Judge and have 
Mm send a corrected abstract — he would have to get 
the court records changed in Jeffersontown first." 

Judge Ward said he has "no right to change court 
records. The original findings in court are true and 
correct except the charge was incorrect against 
Mm. So, I corrected It to be in agreement with the 
arrest card. If he wants it revised, he will have 
to take civil action." 

On Feb. 5, Mrs. Lena Hubbuch, former city clerk 
under the Taxpayers Party administration and aunt 
of Schneider, called Judge Ward asking that copies 
of records In the case be given to Schneider. 

Ward complied with the request, explaining in a 
letter to Schneider that "the judge must try your 
case under the exact charges that appear on this 
arrest card; otherwise you could be heard again 
on any charge left off.'» 

Judge Cummings has written to Sparrow In Frank- 
fort explaining about the "merged" charges. The 
letter was delivered by Schneider, and said in part: 

"Testimony indicated that subject had used a mouth 
spray just prior to test rendering the results Incon- 
clusive. Mr. Schneider, at this time, was further 
quite ill. 

"I am confident that the error Is a result of In- 
ability or new clerk to understand my docket entries, 
and will be grateful if you will correct the record 
accordingly," Cummings wrote. 

Neither Sparrow nor Ward say they Intend to change 
any records.

Midway Drive man fights eyesores 

By Robin Garr III 
Staff Writer 

Tom B Hayes Is mad. 

He's mad at Jefferson County Judge 
Todd Hollenbarh and other county of- 
flclals who, he believes, have failed 
to respond to his complaints. 

He's mad at some of his neighbors 
along Midway Drive east of Jeffer- 
sontown who over the years, he be- 
lieves, have halved the value of his 
home and property by allowing the 
area to deteriorate into a rural slum. 

Haves, 46, and Ms wife Geneva have 
lived at 11213 Midway, just west of 
Blankenbaker Road, since Thanks- 
giving Day, 1964. At that time, he 
recalled, Midway was a quiet, rural 

"I 'paid $5,500 for the shell of a 
house and this lot," he said. "Me 
and an old country uncle of mine 
built the whole inside, and added the 

"I wouldn't doubt but what I'd have, 
of my own money, $18,000 or more In 
the house all together." 

But that was before things began to 
go sour around Midway Drive. 

Hlghbaugh Enterprises, developers of 
the nearby Bluegrass Industrial Park, 


gan annexing Highbaugh's acquisitions. 

Future industry site? 

"In a nutshell," hayes theorized, 
"everyone back here Is saying "we're 
going to get rich off of Hlghbaugh.' 
They're just waiting to be bought out 
for industry, 

"But I think they're going to be 
fooled. Even if Highbaueh wants this 
space, whlrh do you think he'd give 
more for -- a dump, or a good piece 

It was about five years ago, Hayes 
recalled, "that the first bad thing 
happened. A trucking company started 
bringing in dump trucks -- 14 or 15 
of 'em every day -- running a trucking 
business out of the property next door." 

Hayes complained to the county build- 
ing inspection department, and the 
trucking operation came to a halt. 
By then, though, the roadway's graded 
surface was potholed and torn up. 

band together 
against busing 

Mrs. Olivia Schmidt of 2403 Steeple- 
chase and several other Jeffersontown 
residents are calling their neighbors 
this week, asking families to keep their 
children home from school on Tuesday, 
Feb. 19. 

Mrs. Schmidt said the "group of con- 
cerned parents," unaffiliated with any 
organization, Is asking residents to 
support "Family Day" on Tuesday. 

The group is encouraging residents 
to travel to Frankfort on Tuesday to 
lobby for effective antl -busing legis- 
lation. Mrs. Schmidt said a busing 
resolution passed by the House on 
Feb. 8 "has no teeth." 

They believe, Mrs. Schmidt said, 
that racial busing "takes away free- 
dom." They will support any effective 
antl-buslng legislation, she concluded. 

"The neighbors used towork together, 
and we'd all chip In money and labor 
to fill the holes and grade the road," 
Hayes said. "Just look at It now.!' 

More mud than gravel, the bumpy, 
potholed road can only be negotiated 
at five moh or less. 

Hayes has asked Jefferson County 
Works director Scott Gregory to help 
repair the road, he said, but Gregory's 
hands are tied. Midway is an undedi- 
cated road, and the county has no 
authority to use tax money for repairs. 

Area 'goes to pot' 

"At least two-and-a-half or three 
years ago," Hayes continued, "every- 
thing really started to go to pot. Peo- 
ple started dumping their garbage 
around. Two years ago, the tenant 
of a two-story house near Blanken- 
baker dumped a huge pile of garbage 

in his yard and a 

Only the deteriorating shells remain 
of three old houses and an abandoned 
blacksmith shop. Only the Uttered 
foundations remain of two more houses. 

At least three large piles of trash, 
Junk and garbage, including old stoves, 
line the sides of Midway. And, around 
the corner on Blankenbaker, nine aban- 
doned Junk cars fill a neighbor's yard 
and the road edge, 

"A couple of years ago," Hayes said, 
"I commenced to gettln' on the county 
health department. I'd call 'em on the 
phone, and write letters. 

"I've been down to Hollenbach's of- 
fice, but you don't see Hollenbach. 
I figure I'm luckv to get him on 
the radio."

Vocational school to serve 6,200 will open in 1975 near Westport High 

By Anne Calvert 

A new vocational school will be built 
just east of Westport High School, it 
was announced by the Jefferson County 
School Board, Feb. 11. 

The school, expected to open in Sep- 
tember 1975, will be built under an 
agreement with the state, which will 
deed the jeffersontown State Vocational 
School to the county, if the system 
builds another vocational school. 

Scrapping an earlier plan to locate 
a vocational school on the campus 
of Thomas Jefferson High School, 
School Superintendent Richard Van- 
Hoose said an Eastern vocational 
school "would create a better balance." 

One recommendation of the east end 
Minimum Foundation school study 
group a vear ago was for a vocational 
school in the Westpon Road area. 
The study group included parents and 
school administrators. 

The county system already owns an 
eight -acre panel of land close to West - 
port High School and the two schools 
would be "attached" administratively, 
Vanlloose said. 

VanHoose recommendea tne architec- 
tural contract be given to the firm of 
Hartstern Schnell Campbell Schadt As- 
sociates as compensation for the plans 
drawn for the Thomas Jefferson School 
which was never built. "We are some- 
what obligated to him because of our 

Hartlage cast a lone dissenting vote 
because of prior problems with the 
firm's subcontractor Brock Electric 
Co., and added construction costsonthe 
Southern High School renovation pro- 
ject which has exceeded its estimate 
by $1 -million. 

Students polled 

The Westport Road vocational high 
school will help fill the needs of about 
6,240 students who responded to a re- 
cent poll of 11,000 ninth-lOth and 
11th grade students in the East End. 

Those students, representing West- 
port, Seneca, Waggener, Eastern and 
Ballard high schools, were enthusiastic 
about learning skills in the building 
trades and commercial and graphic 
art (printing). 

William J. Aiken, school director of 
vocational education said the county has 
seen a decline in high school graduates 
going to college and an increase in 
those interested in vocational train- 

Aiken plans to recommend to the 
system the following instructional ar- 
eas for the Westport Vocational School: 

- Carpentry - residential, commer- 
cial, finish and casework. 

-- Plumbing 

— Masonry and trowel trades 
-- Welding 

— Heating, air conditioning and re- 

-- Graphic arts (printing) 

— Electronics - radio andTVrenair 

— Auto mechanics 

— Auto body repair 

— Commercial art 

— interior decoration and design 
A large number of students also were 

interested in computer technology, but 
with the high cost of setting up such a 
program, the county will likely use 
only the existing setup at the Jeffer- 
sontown facility. 

hewer East End students selected 
vocational agriculture or horticulture 
than in the south end, Aiken reported. 
With half the total eight acres beiw- 
needed for the school buildings a 

would have to be on a more limitec 
scale than the program at either Jef- 
fersontown or Pleasure Ridge Park. 

When completed, students at each of 
the feeder high schools polled will be 
"bona fide" students of that school for 
half a day and take the second half of 
each day at the vocational school. There 
will also be some redisricting of the 
two Voice-area vocational schools. 

No post-secondary courses will be a- 
vailable at Westport, and Aiken pre- 
dicted that the current 50-50 under-

Teens 'together' 
at lock-in rehearsal 

By Karen Grimes 
Staff Writer 

Junior and senior high choirs of St. 
Matthews Baptist Church took part In 
a "musical experience in love" at a 
lock -in held at the church last week end 
from 7:30 pm Friday through Saturday 

Sixty-nine blue jean and sneaker clad 
teens came to church carrying sleeping 
bags, blankets and pillows to rehearse 
for their March 10 production of "Come 
Together", a new religious musical. 
The lock-in, under the direction of 
Wendell Boertje, minister of music, 
was a work session with time out for 
fun. Five rehearsals were held during 
the evening and forenoon, with short 
breaks for refreshments, a muvle, and 
outside games. 
At devotions in the chapel, Boertje 
asked the choir to relate to each other 
as Individuals In friendship, appre- 
ciation and honesty. "We can't sell 
■Come Together' If we aren't united 
ourselves." , 
Boertje was In constant motion during 
rehearsals -- his body swaying, arms 
waving and fingers snapping to the beat 
He led the choir through 
song after song, encouraging and cor- 

At 10 pm the choir stopped for ham- 
burgers and entertainment by Ollle 
Carpenter, who told stories, drew pic-

oertje, Carpenter's 
performance was symbolic of the 
uniting of young and old members of the 
church. The choir enjoyed his per- 
formance so much they gave him the 
choir "super clap", thunderous 
applause followed by one loud clap. 

During another break, the choir ate 
popcorn and watched a Laurel and 
Hardy film. 

At 1:30 am some of the choir decided 
to hit the sack. Girls slept on the 
third floor and boys bedded down on the 
" floor with Boertje stationed 
somewhere In between. Mrs. Rachel 
Boertje, Ken and Judy Relnhardt and 
Carolyn Schaaf provided overnight 
A 7:30 am breakfast of pancakes, 
homemade maple syrup, sausage, 
orange Juice and milk, prepared by 
Betty Gregory, was followed by re- 
hearsal number four. Then the choir 
chose teams and went outside amid

swirling snowflakes to see which team 
could pack the most people In a 
Volkswagen. On the first try team 
one packed In twenty, but team two 
needed two efforts to pack in that same 
number. Proclaiming a tie, Boertje 
awarded the prize, a "Come Together" 
candy bar, that is, 30 candy bars melted 
to form a large one. 

"Come Together" is a message 
musical stressing love, understanding 
and rediscovery of the spirit that 
brought the first Christians together. 

Some of the songs use verses from 
favorite hymns set to a mixture of 
blues, soul and rock music. Accom- 
panied is provided with rhythmn and 
bass guitars, piano, organ and tam- 
bourines. A narrator reads scripture 
between the parts. 

The musical requires congregational 
participation In the form of singing, 
clapping and raising arms. At one 
point the choir will mingle with the

LETTERS: the discipline debate 
attracts parents critical of school 

Dear Fditor: 

We (two alumnae of JHS and 
their parents) thought your 
"Cop vs. Schoolmaster" edi- 
torial ( Ian. 24) was great; and 
we want to echo Captain 
Tucker's appeal for "guidance 
by proper, positive means, not 
negative punishment." Your pa- 
per is doing a real service by 
questioning the use of harsh 
disciplinary methods in the 

Almost two years ago five of 
our children completed a total 
of dO years in the Jefferson 
County schools, eight and one 
half at .HIS. Ihey had little 
contact with Mr. Sexton, and 
so-called "Sextonian disci- 
pline" from the school admin- 
istration was limited to a few 
questionable suspensions and 

But many times in the 20 years 
of our school involvement we 
were exposed, at II IS and else- 
where, to insensitivity among 
school administrators, 
teachers, and school board rep- 
resentatives. We honestly be- 
lieve that on a few of these oc- 
casions "damage to their young 
lives" was prevented only be- 
cause we as parents stood stub- 
bornly by the child with prob- 
lems, to even up the sides, 
rather than let him face the 
educational hierarchy alone. 

If Mr. Hardin and Mr. Sexton 
and others in their positions 
really want to earn the coveted 
title of "sensitive administra- 
tors," they should ask them- 
selves a few questions about 
their present system, which 
doesn't seem to be working ton 

I. How many disciplinary 
problems have actually been 
created by the school's arbi- 
trary rules and continue on and 
on, simply because the admin- 
istration refuses to admit that 
the students have valid reasons 
for objecting to the rules? We 
agree that some rules are nec- 
essary for safety, order, etc. 
Students understand such rules, 
hut the reasons for them have 
to he stronger than "We don't 
want our students looking like 
a bunch of long-haired hippies," 

and "Slacks for girls aren't 

2. Is the privilege afforded 
the schools by state law to 
"thwart disruption" by pad- 
dling, suspension, detention, 
and expulsion being overused 
or abused? At what point does 
a minor disobedience or non- 
conformity become a disrup- 
tion? What is the actual benefit 
of paddling? 

3. What effort is made to clean 
up the source of a lot of stu- 
dent discontent: unfair treat- 
ment from teachers? You need 
to provide an ear to learn of 
these injustices, and the par- 
ents need to wake up and let 
you hear about them. 

One parent can feel pretty 
lonely, intimidated, and guilty 
when his child has trouble at 
school, but he often learns later 
that there have been other par- 
ents with similar frustrating 
There are many good teachers

are grateful for the Influence, 
both academic and personal, 
that they have had on our child- 
ren. But contact with one in- 
ept, unfair, or downright cruel 
teacher can demoralize a stu- 
dent's total educational effort, 
so that some type of rebellion 
is almost inevitable, whether it 
takes the form of confronta- 
tion with the offending teacher, 
psychosomatic illness, various 
degrees of psychological with- 
drawal, or cowed submission 
with the resentment finding out- 
lets elsewhere. 

Dorothv Hughes, a parent, sug- 
gests in her letter (Feb. 7) 
"going to the Board of Educa-

try to change the rules." She 
should try It! We already did, 
and this is the way it works; 
a fifteen-year-old student en-

teacher's unfairness and final-

cated teachers like Mr. Sexton, 
who really care about the stu- 
dents of the school, that keeps 
us on toil. 

Mr. Sexton was a counselor 
and was able to get to know the 
students and talk to them, Now 
as assistant principal where his 
job is to discipline these same 
students, it turns a good angel 
into a rogue. Let's lace it: 
no one enjoys discipline. And 

some of the students may d

deep down they respect ; 

consider our school to be 
imher one in the county. Our 
aching staff is of the highest

in proud to say I am a mother

quite an amount of people to

we are sure that many other 
people agree. 

t here are probably many more 
students who feel as we do; how- 
ever, it was impossible to get 
in touch with them during school 
hours. We, too, are interested 
in a poll of the student body to

has given similar orders to the 
teacher. The unfairness grows 
into tyranny. The school admin- 
istrators seem sympathetic but

him to attend a weekly class 
with a lot of knife-wielding,

big, black letters in his file and 
returns to haunt him later on, 
anytime he has a minor prob- 
lem. It is used almost as a 
club, when he contends that 
the arbitrary rule at JHS re- 
garding hair length infringes 
upon his constitutional rights. 
He is "thinking critically on 
his own," according to Mr. Har- 
din's description of JHS phil- 
osophy, because in sociology 
they teach that a democratic 
society provides a place for 
people to appeal such grievan- 
ces. The place he is sent for 
his appeal is the Board of Edu- 
cation, where he is told that 
such matters are left up to the 
individual school principals. 
Mr. Hardin and others in his 
position need the aid of parents 
in identifying the many little 
sources of discontent. To save 
space we list only a few of many 
things that bothered us, exam- 
ples selected because they 
range from cruelty to ineffec- 
tual teaching: a ninth-grade 
health teacher who greeted stu- 
dents who were late to his class 
with a hard whack from a pad- 
dle; a history teacher who as- 
signed the presidential cabinet 
offices and office holders for 
the class to memorize, and in- 
cluded on the assigned list 
names of two men who had been 
out of office at least six months; 
a biology teacher-coach who 
used biology class time to show 
football films, library rules ttjat 
were so strict that use of -Xie 
library was very difficult. 
(These were observed two or 
more years ago and, hopefully, 
may have been corrected.) 
These gripes may sound tri- 
vial, but they are enough to 
undermine a student'? confi- 
dence in his school. When you 
multiply the complaints from 
our one family by several 
hundred families, there really 
ought to be someone who will 
listen to a noise like that!

MORE LETTERS: against busing 

Dear Editor: 

One of our basic rights as 
American citizens is freedom 
of choice. That freedom is guar- 
anteed by the Constitution of 
the United States. The Supreme 
Court is sworn to uphold that 
Constitution and protect the 
civil rights of all men. By forc- 
ing our children to be bused, 
the civil rights of the parents 
and the children are being vio- 

Is it fair to deprive students 
of attending their own neigh- 
borhood schools? Is ir to 
make them spend hot a bus 
when they now spenu nlnutes 
walking? Is it fair to penalize 
parents for hard work and sac- 

One of the basic reasons for 
choosing a partice' home is 
the quality, distan nd access 
to schools, churches, shopping, 
etc. Such homes are expensive. 
Taxes are high and often times 

services normally provided for 
by the city have to be paid for 
as extras. We as parents choose 
to do this. 

Now the Supreme Court has 
implied that freedom of choice 
is not a freedom after all. We 
don't have the freedom to choose 
the school for our children. The 
Supreme Court is making that 
choice for us based on equal 
numbers and not on equality of 

All people, regardless of race, 
color, or creed are entitled to 
an equal quality education. Bus- 
ing will not achieve this. Busing 
will achieve: hard feelings 
among parents and students of 
the involved schools, lessening 
of the quality of education, an 
even greater lack of school 
spirit and support, and an end 
to extracurricular activity. 

In my opinion equal education 
can only be achieved by equal 
opportunity. This opportunity 

can best be provided by improv- 
ing the quality of all schools. 
The money, time and effort 
spent for busing can be spent 
in this way. If this can be 
accomplished, no student would 
have to be bused from his neigh- 
borhood school, no student 
would be separated from his 
friends, but all students could 
be proud and anxious to attend 
his school and each would ac- 
quire a quality education. 
The Supreme Court has given 
the terms equal numbers and 
equality the same meaning. Be- 
fore they deprive people of their 
civil rights in order to achieve 
equal numbers, they should con- 
sider protecting people's civil 
rights by providing equal

In St. Matthews, more dogs than police 

Dear Fditor: 

I wish to refer to the letter 
which appeared in the Jan. 24, 
issue of your newspaper headed 
"Loose dogs in St. Matthews." 

On Jan. 24, the same day the 
letter appeared, the Jefferson 
County Dog Pound, as a result 
of a request by our Police 
Department, assigned two 
trucks and three men to work 
with us. Two St. Matthews 
policemen were assigned to ac- 
company their trucks and were 
given directives to patrol the 
entire St. Matthews area for the 

purpose of picking up loose dogs 
and citing the owners of such 
I might point out the action 
of the Police Department and 
the Dog Pound was not a result 
of the letter. I didn't know such 
a letter had been written. On 
many occasions, at the request 
of the Police Department, the 
County Dog Pound, accompanied 
by a police officer, has worked 
the area. 

Mrs. Loehle admitted she has 
seen the Dog Pound truck on 
Massie Avenue but there 

these patrols. I agree with Mrs. 
Loehle -- the owners of loose 
dogs and pets are really the 
ones at fault and such violators 
will be cited to appear in court. 

Furthermore, we follow up on 
all complaints registered by 
citizens but loose dogs and pets 
far outnumber the police. A 
little extra effort by all con- 
cerned would solve the problem.

Asks for an apology to Jeffersontown High 

Dear Fditor: 

Unfortunately, I was unable to 
stay for the complete program, 
but for the length of time I 
was there and what I heard, 
myself, I feel compelled to 
state, that in my opinion, your 
reporter was unfair and biased 
in this (.Ian. 24) article. 

As always with taxes and death, 
the question of disciplining our 
young people is always with us. 
it would appear to me that we 
as parents have become more 
and more willing to thrust onto 
the school the matter of dis- 
ciplining our children. If we 
assumed this responsibility 
more within the home, our 
schools could devote their time 
to educating our children and 
not having to act as substitute 

Also, being a parent of three 
teenagers, it was of particular 
Interesi to me that your re- 
porter did not see fit to report 
more about the discussion of 
the use i)f drugs, whether it 
Iv narcotics or alcohol, by 
our voting |ieople. 

Of greater Importance to me 
in writing this letter was to re- 

ply to your editorial, "Jeffer- 
sontown contrast: a cop and a 
schoolmaster," found in the 
same issue of your paper. I 
must admit that my first re- 
action to this was one of out- 

I would feel that only if cer- 
tain requirements have been 
met could you possibly with in- 
tegrity and credibility have 
written the editorial which you 
did. Those requirements are 
as follows: Visit our school 
and talk with Mr. Sexton and 
Mr. Hardin and get their views 
first-hand; ' visit our class- 
rooms and talk with our 
teachers; talk with a fair sample 
of our students and parents and 
get their ideas and opinions; 
if possible, interview substitute 
teachers who from time to time 
are sent to our school to work 
and get their views as to the 
questions involved. 
Also, learn what means are 
implemented in disciplining our 
students when the need arises. 
Are they counseled? Are thev 
warned? Do they have detention? 
Find out under what circum- 
suspensions, expul- 

sions, or physical punishment 
are meted out at Jeffersontown 
High School. Your implication in 
the editorial was that Mr. Sexton 
dictatorially and indiscrimi- 
nately made these decisions. 
My question to you is: Does 
the local school have the re- 
sponsibility to fulfill the rules 
and regulations laid down by 
the local School Board, the 
State, and, yes, in some In- 
stances, our Federal Govern- 

You should also find out from 
the students if they know the 
rules established to try to make 
our school serve the purpose 
for which it is there, and that 
is to provide the best educa- 
tion possible for each student 
wishing to take advantage of his 
or her opportunity. 

Until you have verified the ac- 
cusations which vou so 
flagrantly made, 1 feel vou owe

TERRY SMITH dons warm gloves and a bulky coat 
before a session working in the icy warehouse of 
of Lo-Temp, Inc., in the Bluegrass Industrial Park. 

It's winter all year 
in Lo-Temp's warehouse 

By Kathy French 
Staff Writer 

Slinging crates of frozen orange Juice 
and pizza pies in 22-below-zero tem- 
peratures doesn't seem to bother the 
three men who are employed by Lo- 
Temp, a firm In the Bluegrass Indus- 
trial Park. 

The Jeffersontown business Is a frozen 
foods warehouse, 7,000 square feet largej 
6,500 feet of which are refrigerated. 
Tony Foellger, the general manager, 
describes the warehouse as the largest 
refrigerated building in the Louisville 

Terry Smith, of 308 Caroldale In Mld- 
dletown, began working for Lo-Temp 
before the warehouse was ready for 
business. In fact, Foellger said, "I 
was the general contractor and Terry 
was my assistant' during construction. 

"Terry and I laid the Insulated floor," 
said Foellger, describing the construc- 
tion of the building. "The walls, ceil- 
ing and floor have five Inches of poly- 
urethene, like an oversized refrigera- 
tor," he said. 

The building is of "modular" metal 
construction with the insulation over the 
metal frame and finally, white metal 
sheets on the celling and walls. 

The floor has a five-Inch concrete 
base, covered by the five Inches of 
Insulation, and surfaced with five more 
inches of concrete, explained Foellger. 

Among his construction duties, Smith 
said, he helped the roofers. But, when 
the building was opened for business 
last September, Smith began his chilly 
duties. He said It took him a month 
to get used to the below -zero climate 
In the building. 

"The first week I couldn't stay (In 
the warehouse) over 30 minutes," said 
Smith. Now, he said, he can stay over 
an hour without the frigid air affecting 

The men receive shipments, unload 
trucks, pick orders and stock the ware- 
house. They are supposed to work only 
45 minutes to an hour Inside the re- 
frigerated area, said another employee, 
Doug King, of Apt. 157, Parliament 
Square, Jeffersontown. 

The employees are protected from 
the cold by heavily insulated pants, 
coats, gloves, hoods and boots. They 
admitted their feet, hands and exposed 
face are most susceptible to the cold. 

King said "after 45 minutes I get 
Icy crystals on my eyelashes," but, 
things used to be worse. The men said 
they began the job without the insulated 
boots. Now, they claim, they actually 
perspire under the light-weight Insulated 
outer wear. 

Hank Eberle, who joins King on the 
night shift, always wears a short-sleeved 
shirt under his uniform outer gear. 
And, Eberle and the others say they 
never get sick. 

"I think It's healthier. Your nose runs 
continuously," said Smith. And, Foellger 
jokingly added, "bacteria are not al- 
lowed to grow." Pointing with pride tnhls 
personnel records, he claimed that there 
"has been one man day off within 378 

Part of the men's standard equipment 
Is the always-full coffee pot. During 
the hour the men load the frozen foods 
in the warehouse, a baseboard heater 
in the warm outer office is drying gloves 
that are often replaced with icy cold 

.hood while operating the fork lift In going 

the refrigerated room. He claims Ms 
long brown hair keeps him warm. 

Frozen foods need only be stocked at 
zero degrees, but "we went to 22 -below, 
mostly because of Ice cream, In case 
It comes In soft, ltwlll harden quicker." 

The products stored in the warehouse 
are a "general line of frozen foods 
that you would find In any grocery 
store," explained Foellger. 

Lo-Temp purchases, stores and de- 
livers all the frozen foods for the 96 
Convenient Food Marts In Kentucky and 
southern Indiana, he explained. 

Owned by the local Convenient Food 
Marts and the franchisor, Comenlent 
Industries of America, Lo-Temp Is their 
first and only warehouse. It Is the first 
Joint venture between the franchiser and 
the franchisee, Foellger added. 

Because the small grocery stores do 
not have a high volume of business 
In frozen foods, "the cost of buying 
is high and storage presentsa problem," 
explained the general manager. So, the 
whole concept of Lo-Temp is centralized 
purchasing and distribution to the stores, 
he said. 

Located at 2418 Data Drive, Lo-Temp 
sits on 3-1/2 acres of land, "with the 
Intent to expand In other areas," accor- 
ding to Foellger. 

The president of Lo-Temp is John 
Parrlsh, owner of Convenient Food Mart 
#1 on Klondike Lane. 

Although seven, 10-horsepower c 
pressors cool the building, Foellger 
said the machines use a surprisingly 
small amount of electricity. Asked If 
he was concerned about the energy 
shortage, he said his main worry Is 
the fuel the dlesel delivery trucks use. 
He added, "We have a number three 
priority because we are a food dlstrl- 

Lo-Temp employs two route men. The 
truck drivers are Gary Mollyhorn, of 
Jeffersontown, and Alan Payton, of New 
Albany. Since the trucks are kept at 
20 below zero, these men also must 
work In the extreme temperature. 

The Icy warehouse has presented some 
unusual problems. Due to the exti 
cold, lights in the refrigerated ] 
flicker dimly, although Foellger said 
the fluorescent fixtures are numerous 
and standard equipment. The fixtures 
next to the compressors burn deep 

The general manager said the company 
has to leave the lights on continuously, 
or It "takes a half hour for them to 
get bright." 

The refrigerated warehouse is divided 
Into a smaller receiving room a 
larger stock room with a thick door 
between. The building has two loading 
docks with heavy insulated seals around 
the overhead doors. 

The receiving doors present problei 
too. Foellger said the door openings are 
large enough to accommodate a s 
tractor trailer rig, 13 feet high. The 
Lo-Temp delivery truck is six Inches 
shorter, and that gap is "enough to let 
warm air In. You take a 90-degree 
summer day, we could lose everything,' 
Foellger said. He hopes to solve the 
problem before outdoor temperatures 

The three men who work four days 
week on two shifts appear to like their 
work and like each other. King 
eluded "the reason 1 like working here 
Is I don't have to feel tense when Tony 
comes in." And the three men laughed 
at a joke cracked by the boss before 
back to work. 

Community Center plans to grow 

By Sandy Hinton 
Staff Writer 

The Jeffersontown Community Center 
board of directors last Thursday agreed 
to proceed with plans for a 30-by- 
52-foot addition to the building. 

Preliminary plans presented by 
treasurer John H. Connors show the 
addition on the left side of the building, 
and Including two additional rest rooms 
with doors outside the building. 

Connors said the board could depend 
on "a lot of the materials being donated. 
We could extend it for no more than 
$8 per square foot." 

Federal funds now under consideration 
by the U. S. Bureau of Outdoor Recre- 

ation (BOR) may not be used for the 
building extension, as requirements do 
not allow permanent attachments to the 
building, but could pay for necessary 
sewer work, he said. 

Connors also announced dynamite 
work sctteduled on the ball field to 
level right field. All work for this pro- 
ject has been donated, he added. 

President Ches Wheeler said the new 
addendum to the community center' 

portion of match-sharing funds.

hear, no news is good news," Wheeler

Yeager reviews River Region years 

By Gaye Holman 
Staff Writer 

After two years of work in the Jef- 
fersontown and Middletrovn areas, Tom 
Yeager Is leaving his job at the River 
Region Mental Health and Mental Re- 
tardation Board.

talked about areas of local need, and 
progress being made. 

In his job, Yeager has been respon- 
sible lor organizing several community 
resource meetings which allowed dif- 
ferent groups and Individuals to dis- 
cuss together their activities and to 
coordinate their eflorts, if they de- 

Yeager said his primary concern now 
is the many directlms groups are going, 
in an attempt to establish a center 
for youth activities in Jeflersontown. 
"They need to bark up and coordinate 
their eiforts to really do an effective 
job," he said. 

He would like to see the interested 
groups sit down together with youth 
of the area to more definitely define 
the needs. He believes youth involve-

houis. In an eflort to discuss with 
the interested Individuals what ran 
be done, a meeting has been planned 
for Fel . 23 with the Comn. unity Schools 

The association, headed by George 
ZorkWIn, is a city-wide group dedi- 
cated to opening up srhoolstothe public 
for activities. 

Yeager said he understands there is 
a lot ol money available for com inunity 
school projec ts, if an area becomes 
interested in the idea. The meeting will 
be held Feb. 25 at 7 pm at the Jef- 
fersontown branch library. Any In- 
terested individuals or groups are 
invited to attend, he said. 

In other areas, Yeager also sees a 
need for more organized community 
impuJ into zoning matters. He said 
this could become a real concern 
throughout all the East End. 

He would like to see a local com- 
mittee established, with representa- 
tives rioin each neighborhood working 
closely with the rity council on zoning 

Through working in Jeffersontown, 
Yeager said, he feels the black com- 
munity Is being Ignored. "I don't know 
exactly what the problem Is," he said, 
"but they don't seem to have any 
representation in the cilv. It's almost 
like the black people here don't exist." 

Admitting the problem Is something

"We are getting more and more refer-

Scout Sunday, Feb. 10 was a very 
special day for James Kelly Cleavinger 
Jr., of Troop 239 at St. Paul's Epis- 
copal Church on Lowe Road. 

Kelly received his Eagle Scout award 
from the Rev. William Gentleman. The 
Eagle Scout award is the highest honor 
that a Boy Scout can achieve, given to 
a Scout who has shown out stalling 
service to others and his community. 
There are five progress awards before 
a Scout earns Eagle rank. 

Hal Cory, Boy Scout Executive of the 
Old Kentucky Home Council, who at- 
tends St. Paul's, said of the Eagle 
award, "The value in this award is 
in the personal development that comes 
to the individual as he strives to gain 
Eagel Scout status." 

Corey stressed that the Eagle service 
project must be directed toward the 
community, and not just toward 
scouting. Kelly's service project was to 
help prepare a new ball diamond at Jef- 
fersontown's Community Center. 

KeUy, 16, has been a Boy Scout for 
five years. He is a sophomore at jef- 
fersontown High School. Kelly is the 
oldest son of Mr. and Mrs. James 
Kelly Cleavinger Sr., 9107 Taylorsville 

Troop 239 was honored as a group 
on Scout Sunday and sat together with 
their families at the 10:45 am church 

The troop at St. Paul's has 28 boys 
and is led by Scoutmaster Sammy 
Hayes. The Cub Scout pack is ted by 
Glen Hawkins and includes 44 boys. 

Sunday also was a special day tor 
another member of the Cleavinger 
family - the newest addition to their 
family was baptiied. 

The Cleavingers' youngest child, born 
Dec. 23, 1973, was baptized by Mr. 
rwmtlaman at St. P aul's on Sunday. 

The newest little Cleavinger was 
named after Mr. Gentleman and was 
baptized William Gentleman Cteav-

Kelly is 16. Rodes is 10, Mary Shelby 
is 9, and the new baby is six weeks

alone. The school is expected to open

A $426,000 renovation at Kentucky 
Reception Center, 8310 Westport Road, 
also began in January. 

A permit for the second of three 
proposed restaurants to be built on 
property at the corner of LaGrange 
Road and Shelbyville Road by auto 
dealer Don Ford was issued Jan. 15. 

Ford said International Pancake House 
will begin construction with hopes of 
opening before Derby weekend. Con- 
struction cost is listed as $100,000. 

Ford Motor Company's truck plant 
on Chamberlain received a permit 
to build a 350-by-150 foot addition at 
an estimated cost of $800,000. 

A Ford spokesman from the company's 
regional public relations office in At- 
lanta said the addition will be used for 
additional production and storage. No 
new jobs will be created, he said. 

The truck plant, only one of its kind 
in the country, "has a considerable 
backlog of units onorder," the spokes- 
man said. Company policy prohibits re- 
vealing the numbers of units back- 
logged or the total cost of the project 
beyond the $800,000 construction cost 

August is "the target date" for opening 
the addition, the spokesman said.

developers of The Village shopping area 
between Breckinridge Lane and Browns 
Lane, for construction of an office 
addition to the tennis center building 
at 4010 Dutchmans Lane. 

Joe Filiatreau. a salesman for Vil- 
lage, said no tenant has been signed to 
occupy the building. He said the building 
is to be located in front of the tennis 
center building, but not actually be part 
of it.

Midwest Invitational 

Local teams are 
swim meet victors 

Rocks bow in basketball ; pin wrestling 

By Pill Platchke 
Swimming writer 

Lakeside and Plantation showed 
everyone that Louisville is not only 
known for the Kentucky Derby, as they 
both earned first and second places In 
the Midwest Invitational Swimming 
Meet held at Plantation last weekend. 
Lakeside had a team total high of 1,479 
followed by Plantation with 1,403. 

It was the Rlrls' If anil that really 
came out on top. Nobody was near 
Plantation or Lakeside in the girls 

The boys fared well, too, hut l oth 
teams had trouble with the Riviera 
Swim Club from Indianapolis, which 
has three fine swimmers In Jim GUI, 
Cress Templeton, and Jeff Holbrook. 
These three finished 1-2-3 In the 400- 
yard Individual medley and reached the 
finals In several other events. 

Spurring on Plantation's girls was 
Hobbtn Wright, a perennial contender In 
swimming action. A surprise showing 
was put on by Chancellor Dugan, who 
came close to "national cutoff times" 
In several events. 

For l akeside it was Camllle Wright 
all the way as she won several races, 
and finished In the top three In about 
everything she entered, On Saturday 
she won the 200-yard freestyle, 200 
butterfly, 200 Individual medley, and 
was mi the winning 400-yard medley 
relay team, 

Camllle was also in one Of the most 
exciting events of the meet in winning 
thl IM. She just beat out Robbln Wright 
by .91 second with a 2:12.887. 

Camllle had to come back In the final 
25 yards before catching Bobbin. 

•When she caught me on the back- 
stroke, I thought sure I was dead," 
said Camllle after the thrilling finish. 

•The breaststroke Is about my worst 
stroke and by the time its over I 
usually don't have much left, But to- 
night I was surprised. I really held the 

When Camllle wasn't doing It, It was 
Kim Estep, Pam Higgs, or Jean Kleln- 

the two swimmers who kept their 
from falling apart by winnlngor placing 
in the top three in key events. 

It was a team effort lor Plantation's 
boys, who didn't finish in the top three 
very often, hut always had two or three 
boys In the top eight, which Is worth 
some points too. 

This meet, like other big swim meets, 
had Its own flavor, Its own color. 

Friday night a swimmer jumped up, 
stripped to his bathing suit, and went 
flying to the starting blocks, just In 
time for his heat, He thought he was 
in the next one, but when someone 
started yelling at him to "getupthere", 
well, he did. (Talk about embarassed)... 
Sunday morning was a hard time for 
most swimmers, as they trudged In 
the pool area after a probably late 
Saturday night. 

A coach pleaded with his star 
swimmer, "C'mon, you have to get In 
the pool and warmup, you want to 
swim your best event todaydon't you?" 
Looking at the cold water, the sleepy 

athlete replied. "Well, I'll have to 
think about that one." 
The same coach could hardly get any 
of his swimmers to warmup, so he 
lined them up and one by one pushed 
them In the water. (Any way you can 
get'm coach). 

Technology has affected swimming 
too, as a boy walked around with an 
electric, digital, glow-ln-the-dark 
timer on his clipboard. What ever hap- 
pened to the plan, old, usually broken, 
hard-to-see stopwatch'.' 

Men's lib reigned for one heat when 
a boy with long hair used a (you 
guessed it) bathing cap to keep his 
hair from going In his eyes and 
supposedly to make him less water- 

He finished seventh In his heat, and the 
cap almost fell off. 

A lot of swimmers wear patches on 
their warmup Jackets, symbolic of 
the meets they have been to. One 
particular boy's jacket was so clut- 
tered you could probably tell where 
he'd been for the last five years, If 
you wanted to take time to study It.

Griffin Building 


The Ballard Bruins learned last week 
that there's more than one way to win 
» game, as they coasted past Moore 
82-44, then barely squeaked by In a 
return match with the Male Bulldogs, 
62- CO. 

Last Friday night, Ballard traveled 
to play before a large crowd at Moore 
High School, and sent most of them 
away disappointed, as the Bruins won 
by 38 points. 

The Bruin machine went to work early, 
and never really quit, with forward 
Bob Undsay startlnr Ballard's scoring 
on a long Jump shot from the corner 
with 7:06 left In the opening period. 
With their good defense and good 
shooting meshing together to form a 
potent attack, Ballard built up an 8-2 
lead with 3:27 to go In period one. 

Ballard had its foes outclassed, and 
the rest of the game went the same, 
with a 56-19 halftlme score, and a 
77-35, third quarter score. The fourth 
period was all subs for both teams, 
and even a freshman, Jeff Lamp, got 
into the game for Ballard, scoring four 

Last Saturday night, Ballard took on 
rival Male for the second time this 
year. Earlier, In the second round 
of the L.I.T., the Bruins nipped the 
Bulldogs by three points, and Male 
was only one point better this time 

Playing before another packed house, 
the Bruins started nut hot, Jumping out 
to an early 8-2 lead. 

Bulldog center Zach Adams played 
well Inside, and Darrell Grlfllth dis- 
played an amazing touch on his lone 
outside bond s. 

So, Male took an 18-16 lead when 
lh k quarter came to a close. 

Male's outside shooting became the 
factor In the second period, as Jefl 
Mack and Larry Bibb combined with 
Griffith to accumulate a good team 
shooting percentage. Ballard counter- 
acted this with forward Don Jackson, 
who seems to play especially good In 
the big games. 

The third period was Ballard's, as 
the team tallied the first four points 
and held the lead for most of the 
period. The Bruins' own three blocks 
of granite, Lindsay, Dwane, and 
Jackson, manned the assault which 
wasn't as eflectlve as It could be 
because of Zach Adams, who kept 
blocking shots and hauling down im- 
portant rebounds. 
Jeir Mack's reckless playing in the 
early part of the final quarter Inspired 
Male, as the Bulldogs got hot and 
quickly outscored the Bruins 6-2. Then 
the lead Jumped out to five points and 
the Bruin fans were getting worried. 

If that wasn't bad enough, Lindsay 
took a hard fall and was Injured very 
badly, It seemed, with 4:32 left in the 
contest and Ballard trailing 55-50. 
Only 21 seconds after his mishap, 

Lindsay came back tn, much to the 
delight of the fans, who had probably 
expected the worst. 
Ballard did get the ball back with 

Substitute guard Kerry O'Brien, an 
unlikely hero, tipped the ball through 
the hoop with 27 seconds left to tie 
the game at 60-all. Three seconds 
later, Male called time out. 

Defensive star, Jefl Shaw, then 
sprawled across the court three times 
before drawing a charging foul on 
Darrell Griffith. With 19 seconds left, 
Shaw made both shots on a one and 
one. Three seconds later, Shaw flew 
again In the backcourt, and the 
charging violation was assessed to 
Griffith again. Shaw missed the front 
end ol a one and one, and with 16 
seconds left, Male had a chance to tie 
the game. 
Ballard's defense gave the Bulldogs 
only three bad shots, one of them a 
"turn around- where am 1 7" Jump shot 
by Mack with four seconds left, Male's 
last chance at a victory, 
The Ballard J\ team won over Male 
In a squeaker, 39-37, before the varsity 
game. Jerry Gerlch's shot from the 
corner with nine seconds left gave 
Ballard a one point lead, then Mike 
Howard added a free throw to seal 
the win.

Valentines act 


Headmaster pushes for student action 

By Spencer Harper, III 

The Valentine Ion sale is an 
annual event to benefit the Warner 
Thespians, an affiliate of a national 
theatrical honor society. 

Twenty-six amateur dramatists spent 
last week and Monday and Tuesday 
taking carnation orders. Each flower 
cost 75 rents and over 000 were sold. 

l Waggener 

The flowers are sent anonymously and 
distributed through home- rooms. While 
the cost has gone up over the years, 
the popularity of sending carnations has 
too. Jill Slmlngton, chairman of the 
sale, attributes this to the fart that 
people are now sending carnations to 
friends, not just their "lovers." 

Jill also rommented, "I think that 
sending a carnation is a beautiful ges- 
ture; the carnation sale rives students 
a chance to express their feelings.- • 

Teachers are not automatically given 

carnations, but many receive them from 
their students. 

The Thespians make 25 rents on the 
sale of each of the red, pink, or white 
flowers, which are purchased throucrh 
Nanz and Kraft Florists. Total Thespian 
profit exceeded $125. Proceeds will 
be used In send students to regional 
and state drama competitions with 
representatives of other Thespian 

EMILY WALKER and Kenny Knowes 
recently presented a one art play at 
the niloajlls. Kenny was given special 
recognition for his performance. In 
addition, the Thespians will present 
three one act plays over Kentucky 
Educational Television later In the 
spring, as a result of their outstanding 
work last year. 

Ofllcers of the group include Danny 
Wilson, president; Jill Slmlngton, 
senior vice president; Emily Walker, 
secretary; Laura Cliamberlaln, trea- 
surer; and Sylvia Greenwell, junior 
vice president. Sponsor is Miss Carol 
Clay, drama and speech teacher.

"I want this meeting to be the begin- 
ning of a series between administra- 
tion and students. I plan to cover al- 
most any area with you," said Head- 
master John R. Gernert. 

He was addressing KCD*s student 
council at a meeting in his home on 
Sunday, Jan. 27. The significance of 
this meeting is the fact that it is 
the first meeting ever held between the 

Mr. Gernert asked for the council's 
ideas and suggestions. The central 
issues which arose were mandatory 
athletics, the heavy homework load, 
ineffective study halls, the present 
dress code and the representation of 
the student body at board meetings. 

Though nothing definite was decided, 
the council was able to hear Mr. 
Gernert's opinions. 

Students feel the homework load and 
situation with athletics are connected. 

"We go to school all day then we 
have athletics until 4:30. By the time 
we get home we're too exhausted to 
do any work at all. Some students have 
been behind since the beginning of the 
year," said Kaki Rhodes, councilpresi- 

"It may be necessary to replan home- 
work schedules, athletic \ 

c programs and 

( Country Day 

there must be a change," Mr. Gernert 

He also supported the council's idea 
of electing a student representative 
to sit in on board meetings. 

"A representative should be present 
for matters involving students, but the 
student member should not be pre- 
sent at business meetings," said Mr. 
Gernert, stating Country Day school 
board policy. Council members agreed. 

Gernert said the study hall problem 
stemmed from lack of campus space 
to expand. Many students have com- 
plained that the study hall is over- 
crowded and too noisy an area for 
working. He agreed and was open to 
suggestions from the council. Members 
are now working on a proposal for a 
new arrangement. 

The dress code was the most con- 
troversial issue mentioned during the 
meeting. The council had suggested 
that boys wear dress shirts and pasts 
but not be required to wear a coat 
and tie. 

"The board tended to be conserva- 
tive," said Mr. Gernert. "The dress 
code is a very nebulous sort of thing. 
There are people on the faculty and 
administration who have completely 
viewpoints and decisions are 

of school limitations that must be con- 

the school's financial situation, the 
state requirements, and physlcalbar- 
riers of the campus. 
Gernert said the school must depend 
on tuition for 96.9 percent of its total 
yearly income, compared to 21 similar 
schools that depend, on the average, 
on tuition for only 75.5 percent of 
all income. The information was con- 
tained in a list given students by Mr. 

On the other hana, the other 21 
schools have about $122,000 in endow- 

come yearly 1 
average is only $29,0 . 
Income from other funds, such as 
donations, amounts to $20,000 yearly 
at Country Day compared to $86,122 
average fund income for 15 other 
schools listed. 

Despite these factors, Country Day's 
average tuition for all grades is $1,420 
compared to an average of $1,794 for 
21 other schools. Highest tuition listed 
was $2,332 at Detroit Country Day 

School and lowest was $861 at Sayre 
School, Lexington. 

State laws require a certain number 
of credit hours in school and specific 
courses necessary for high school 
graduation. The school is also re- 
sponsible for the student once he re- 
ports for the day. These factors affect 
school policies, which cannot be 
changed. For example, students cannot 
leave the school on unnecessary trips. 

A third limitation is the amount of 
land at the Rock Creek campus. Since 
there is no room to build, lack of 
classroom space and crowded study 
halls have become problems. 

"I want you to see the whole picture. 
If we can improve communications be- 
tween students, faculty, and ad- 
ministration, the council will be more 
effective," Mr. Gernert said. 

All members were pleased with Mr. 
Gernert's attitude towards the coun- 
cil's ideas. 

"We were very frank and honest." 
said sophomore Jenny Gault. "Mr. 
Gernert made the suggestion that we 
visit other schools who have made 
changes like some of those we plan, 
to see how successful they have been. 
I think that will aid us in deciding 
what we need to work on first."

Ballard's Rupp wins science contest 

By Roger Auge 
Staff Writer 

Edward J. Rupp, 17, is as good at 
winning science awards as his mother 
is at bringing blue ribbons home from 
the annual Kentucky State Fair. 

This year, Rupp, a senior at Bal- 

( Ballard j 

lard, is the only Kentucky winner 
among 300 national winners in the 33rd 
annual science talent search sponsored 
by Science Service, of Washington, D.C. 

His winning project is the design 
and construction of an optical tape 
reader using primary colors. 

His mother, for the past few years, 
has been one of the big winners In I

Though the board has not given an 
answer to the dress code proposal, 
Gernert said the council could ex- 
pect one "relatively soon." 
Gernert's ideas and suggestions in- 
cluded improvement of assembly pro- 
grams, student-teacher relations, and 
added academic awards. 
Many programs with outside speakers 
were planned at the beginning of the 
school year, but only a few have 
materialized. He offered the council 
the opportunity to arrange more pro- 


A lot of emphasis has been put on 
athletics with award banquets in the 
spring and fall. Students are recognized 
only on class day at the end of the 
year. The council should poll the stu- 
dent body to determine if students 
want more attention given to awards. 

Gernert also felt that the council could 
help stimulate better student and faculty 
relations by working with both groups. 

"There are things which are more 
important than wearing a tie on Mon- 
day," he said. "I want to see you get 
down to things with long range value." 

The headmaster reminded the council 

Life Saving courses are scheduled 
to begin in late February at Plantation 
Country Club with a new Guard Course 
slated to start in March.

Courtyard reopens 

By Denise Logsdon 
Representatives and alternates of 
Seneca's Student Council met last week 
to discuss, among other items, the 
re-opening of Seneca's courtyard to 
students during lunch. 

[ Seneca ) 

The courtyard is surrounded on three 
sides by the main school building. This 
area was closed to students last fall 
when teachers complained that noise 
from students in the area disturbed 
classrooms opening around it. 

But with warmer weather approaching, 
students once again want to relax out- 
side in the courtyard during their lunch 
break. Before it was put off-limits, 
students used the grassy area to study 
and toss Frisbees. Trees provided 
shade for teachers to hold class during 
hot weather. 

Seneca's administration agreed to al- 
low students to visit the courtyard 
during lunch on a trial basis. Stu- 
dent Council President Peter Russell 
said the experiment would begin 
around the end of the winter quarter. 
Continued use of the area will de- 
pend on how much students control 
the noise and trash.

With the problems of corruption in our government, 
conflicts among nations, inflation, poverty, and the 
energy crisis, there seems to be a general feeling of 
apathy throughout the country. Americans are getting 
tired of "bad news". They care what happens, but 
don't care to do anything about it. Business has long 
displayed social responsibilities and is trying to change 
the "bad news" feeling. With the support of the 
people, the Future Business Leaders of America will 
continue working toward solving these problems.

Forest Hills revives merger talk 

Dormant plans to upgrade Forest Hills 
to fifth- or fourth-class rlty status 
were revived at the town board meet- 
ing on Monday. 
Last fall, Forest Hills officials dis- 


Acres the possibility of merging the 
two cities, then annexing surrounding 
areas to meet the 3,000 population 
requirement for fourth class. 

Purpose of such a plan, said Forest 
Hills Board Chairman Alvln Davis, 
would be to regain local control over 
rezontng matters. 

An alternative plan discussed among 
area cities last summer Involved the 
possible merger of Forest Hills and 
Hurstbourne Acres with St. Regis Park, 
Cambridge Village, Lincolnshire and 
Houston Acres, along with unincor- 
porated areas between the smaller 

This plan would form one large suburb 
stretrhlng along Taylorsvllle Eoad 
from Louisville to Jeffersontown. 

Davis said Forest Hills now plans 
to revive discussions among any or 
all of these small cities, with an eye 
to upgrading to fourth-class, or at 
least to fifth if the larger overall plan 
can't be realized. 

Discussions among the cities came 
to a halt last fall, when officials agreed 
to await Jefferson Fiscal Court's de- 
cision on the proposed Sutton Place 
rezontng, which would allow apartments 
and a commercial complex to be built 
on both sides of Hurstbourne Lane just 
south of 1-64. 

No decision has been reached on that 
rezontng, and transcripts of the Sutton 
Place public hearing still have not been 
provided to the court. 

Forest Hills' derision to resume mer- 
ger talks without waiting for a Sutton 
Place ruling, said Davis, came about 
because, "If Sutton Place Isn't ap- 

proved, It will just come up again un- 
der some other name." 

Before planning formal meetings with 
neighboring cities, Davis concluded, 
Forest Hills officials will meet with 
attorneys and other experts to deter- 
mine procedures tor upgrading, and 
the benefits and disadvantages to the 

In other business at Monday's meet- 
ing, the Forest Hills trustees: 

-- Appointed Miss Joan Daugherty as 
city clerk. 

-- Received a report from sewer com- 
missioner Tom Larimore that sanitary 
sewer construction Is ahead of 
schedule, with homes on Axmlnster and 
surrounding streets, and two-thirds of 
Narwood Drive, ready to tap on to 
the mains as soon as board of health 
is received, 
the possil 

! sharing and state muni- 
cipal aid funds to have storm sewers 
installed in drainage problem areas 
while the sanitary sewer contractor Is 
working in the area. 

-- Told Marshal Lee Horan to advise 
offending residents of the city's dog or- 
dinance, then to cite dog owners and 
finally have stray dogs Impounded if 
the problem doesnt clear up. 

-- Again heard a request by Marshal 
John Weber that he be placed on a 
monthly salary. The trustees made no 
final decision on the matter, but de- 
cided to learn the residents' views on 
the proposal. A newsletter will be 

Ing the names of city officials and In- 
viting homeowners to report any prob- 
lems or complaints. 

Houston Acres 

At their regular monthly meeting on 
Thursday, Feb. 7, the Houston Acres 
board of trustees discussed their duties 
for the next two years. 

Board Chairman Robert Bassett said, 
"we are going to stress good services 
to the city such as garbage collection 

asking if Weber should receive com- 
pensation and what amount. 

— A resident of the city and a 
member of the Louisville city police 
spoke against the effectiveness and 
capabilities of rlty deputies by com- 
paring their hours of training with that 
of city and county officers. 

"Our police forre Is a local supple- 
ment to available county police and 
have been effective here," Bassett said. 

Hurstbourne Acres 

The Metropolitan Sewer District 
(MSD) may revise their plans for 
sewers within the city of Hurstbourne 
Acres, according to Henry Wilding 
Jr., chairman of the city's board of 

The trustees have been concerned for 
some time that MSD's plan showed 
oversized pipes laid at a deep level. 
Thev believe a more shallow depth 
would minimize the amount of blasting 

On Jan. 14, trustees met with MSD 
official Jack Wilburn and "he seemed 
receptive to our Id^a, so we are sup- 
posed to have another meeting with 
them In the near future," said Wilding. 

Sewer construction Is slated for this 
spring in the sixth-class city. The 
trustees met Tuesday, Feb. 12.

Tom Hayes is mad about Midway Drive 

Continued from Page 1 

rec order, Hayes smiled as he played 
back tapes of two WAVE radio "Tell 
It to the Judce" programs. 

Those tapes reveal Haves, on Dec, 
28. 1972, and again on Fet . 22, 1973, 
tellini: Jurtiie Hullenbach about the Mid- 
way problems. 

On the December tape, Hollenbach 

A representative of the health depart- 
ment did contact Mm, Haves recalled, 
but no action followed. 

So, a year ago next week, Hayes con- 
tacted the judge during the radio pro- 
gram again. 

"I recall talking to you," Hollenbarh's 
taped voire said. "I turned this mat- 

ter over to the board of health. It's 
irritating to me ... I apologize if 
they didn't follow it up. The proper 
authorities assured me It would be 
taken care of. 

"The board Oi health operations are 
handled bv a commission," Hollenbach 
told Haves, "jointly appointed by the 
mayor and the county judge. 

'Bureaucratic setup' 

"The board of health is responsible 
to this commission, not to the judge 
or the mayor. It's the kind of bureau- 
cratic setup that leads to breakdowns 
In communication like this." 

During the radio conversation, Hayes 
invited Hollenbach to come out to Mid- 
way Drive and see the condition for 
himself, and the judge said "I'd be 
happy to do that."

SIX JUNK CARS lined the edge of Blankenbaker Road 
near Midway Drive on Monday morning. Jeffersontown 
police said the property owner, Calvin Garrett, was no- 
tified Monday to remove the cars within 48 hours. 
Board of Health officials said Garrett has been sum- 
moned to appear in Ecology Court on Friday, Feb. 22. 

A year later, thisweek, Hayes laughed 
"He never did." 

From all his calls, including letters 
to state officials in Frankfort, Hayes 
said, he's only had one success -- the 
neighbor on Blankenbaker was told to 
remove the junked cars from his yard. 

"That was last year," Hayes said. 
"But lo and behold, it wasn't long 
before he's back at it again. That's 
R-4 residential property -- you can't 
run a junkyard in a residential zone." 

Hayes, an Army veteran of World 
War II, contracted a severe lung disease 
while fighting the Japanese in Korea 
during the war's closing months. 

Then only 17, he was retired from the 
service on 60 percent disability. Later 
operations, he said, "removed two- 
thirds of one lung and half the other." 

Disabled veteran 

By 1962, he'd been placed on lOOper- 
cent total and permanent disability, 
and retired from work on his Army 
pension and social security. 

Pointing out his neat, freshly- painted 
yellow frame house on Midway, sur- 
rounded by carefully landscaped 
grounds, he asked, "If I can keep my 
property up, and I'm disabled, why 
can't people in good health do the 

"Would you believe, I've come down 
as low as $12,000, Just to get out of 
here, but I can't sell because of the 
surrounding area. I tried to sell it as 
potential industrial for M5.000, but I 
know that would go over like a lead 

•Tve tried it high, and I've tried 
it low, but I just can't get out of 
here," Hayes said. 

"I just wish I could get somebody 
to do something besides promises. 
I think they think I'm just a trouble- 
maker, but let them come out here, 
investigate it, and they'll see I'm 
telling the truth. 

"My wife put it this way. Maybe 
there's a reason they won't make 
•em clean it up, because liighbautjh is 
going to buy it. But if that's true, 
just let me know, and maybe I'll quit 
hollerln' about it. 

"She tells me, maybe they know 
something I don't know. Well, If they 
want to get me off their back, just 
let me know it." 

NEXT WEEK: County agencies 

Legislators hear of welfare, busing 

By Robin Garr III 
Staff Writer 

Discussion of welfare and morn talk 
about racial busing dominated the 
weekly Saturday breakfast meeting 
sponsored by Rep. Mark 1). O'Brien 

A number of the 20 guests at Satur- 
day's breakfast at the Rainada bin on 
Hurstbourne Lane represented the Co- 
alition on Human Needs and Priorities. 

Representatives of the coalition asked 
O'Brien to favorably consider tlioir 
stand. They favor extending the Aid to 
Families with Dependent children pro- 
gram to families with unemployed 
fathers at home; expanding the public 
assistance program for families with 
unemployed parents, and generally im- 
proving general assistance welfare 
programs administered by state 

Asking O'Brien to support legisla- 
tion providing "100 percent of need" 
to welfare recipients, Maty Ellen 
Timperinan, a coalition representative, 
said present policies provide needy 
families only 73.1 percent of the 1960 
standard of living. 

Few East Enders on welfare 

"Not to ignore the problem," O'Brien 
responded, "but I don't believe this is 
an issue of general concern in the 31st 

Mrs. Thaler added, "but, we will 
have to vote on it when it comes up, 
even if it does not greatly affect our 
districts." Few residents of the East 
End house and senate districts are on 
welfare, the representatives believe. 

"More money has been alloted in the 
budget for health and welfare," O'Brien 
continued, "but we don't know yet how 
it will be spent." 

The 31st District representative ex- 
pressed general agreement that the 
state welfare system should be changed. 
He admitted a need exists for welfare, 
but suggested "incentives to work and 
earn, and a system of goals need to 
be built into welfare. Now, you get on 
it, and you stay on it." 

Discussing die relationship of segre- 
gated housing patterns and segregated 
schools, O'Brien said the establish- 
ment of low-cost housing throughout 
the county might have merit, but 
"traditionally, public housing becomes 
a new ghetto." 

Circuit Court Clerk Paulie Miller, 
a guest at the breakfast, recalled the 
early days of Louisville's history, 
"when the Irish settled in Portland, 
and the Germans in Germanlown, during 
the first generation." 

Assimilation came in later genera- 

Busing resolution 

Speaking of last week's house vote 

resolving to petition Congress to in- 
troduce a constitutional amendment 
banning racial busing, O'Brien said 
"It was a watered down version, re- 
questing a single amendment, rather 
than a Constitutional Convention," as 
its backers had wanted. 

Since the resolution has passed the 
House, though, O'Brien said, "it's 
Daisy's problem now." 

Noting he has received no letters in 
favor of busing, O'Brien added, "I think 
this issue has caused a lot of people 
who are not normally concerned to be- 
come interested in what their legisla- 
tors are doing." 

"On every issue there's going to be 
two sides." O'Brien added. "I know 
I can't make everybody happy." 

Mrs. Thaler added "Contrary to what 
some say, this is not a racialproblem. 
I've talked to black people in my dis- 
trict, and they don't want to leave their 
community schools, either." 

Bleick von Bleicken of Fern Creek, 
chairman of (lie Million Dollar Youth 
and Community Foundation, told the 
group, "A pressure cooker situation 
is being created, as the black inner 
city is being surrounded by white 
suburbs who don't want them. 

"The black, inner city schools are 
inferior. We must be concerned about 
this. Busing is not Hie answer, but 
good answers need to lie found. 

"Tlie constitution cannot protect yon 
to the exclusion of any minority," 
von Bleikoii concluded. "Solutions must 
be found."
