Water rates raised
By Sandy Hinton
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 l.as 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
"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

Midway Drive man fights eyesores
By Robin Garr III
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
"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.
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,
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.

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
The county system already owns an
eight -acre panel of land close to West -

would be "attached" administratively,
VanHoose recommendea tne architec-
tural contract be given to the firm of

sociates as compensation for the plans
drawn for the Thomas Jefferson School
which was never built. "We are some-

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.
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
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.
— Masonry and trowel trades
— 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-
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-

at lock-in rehearsal
By Karen Grimes
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
At devotions in the chapel, Boertje
asked the choir to relate to each other

ciation and honesty. "We can't sell

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
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

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
sponsors film program
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
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
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
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

their problems, hut it's dedi-
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
like him for this alone,
deep down they respect ;
consider our school to be
imher one in the county. Our
aching staff is of the highest
inllty, We have the best band
the state. Our school, also
is the best students" And
in proud to say I am a mother

we are sure that many other

in touch with them during school
hours. We, too, are interested
in a poll of the student body to

"Troublemaker" shows up in
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
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-

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-

In St. Matthews, more dogs than police
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

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-

Unfortunately, I was unable to

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

Mr. Hardin and get their views
first-hand; ' visit our class-
rooms and talk with our

of our students and parents and

Find out under what circum-

High School. Your implication in
the editorial was that Mr. Sexton
dictatorially and indiscrimi-
nately made these decisions.

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

trucks, pick orders and stock the ware-
house. They are supposed to work only

frigerated area, said another employee,
Doug King, of Apt. 157, Parliament
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

And, Eberle and the others say they

jokingly added, "bacteria are not al-
lowed to grow." Pointing with pride tnhls
personnel records, he claimed that there

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,

Intent to expand In other areas," accor-
ding to Foellger.
The president of Lo-Temp is John
Parrlsh, owner of Convenient Food Mart

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

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

work In the extreme temperature.
The Icy warehouse has presented some
unusual problems. Due to the exti
cold, lights in the refrigerated ]

Into a smaller receiving room a
larger stock room with a thick door

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

Is I don't have to feel tense when Tony

Community Center plans to grow
By Sandy Hinton
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

ject has been donated, he added.

Yeager reviews River Region years

After two years of work in the Jef-

Yeager Is leaving his job at the River

As a member of the Jefleisontown
and community relations. He recently
talked about areas of local need, and
progress being made.
In his job, Yeager has been respon-
sible lor organizing several community

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

for Fel . 23 with the Comn. unity Schools

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."

By Jamie Garretson
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

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.

Lakeside and Plantation showed
everyone that Louisville is not only

and finished In the top three In about
everything she entered, On Saturday
she won the 200-yard freestyle, 200

Camllle was also in one Of the most

Camllle had to come back In the final

Friday night a swimmer jumped up,

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,
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-
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 Valentine rarn.it 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.
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
The Thespians make 25 rents on the
sale of each of the red, pink, or white
flowers, which are purchased throucrh

profit exceeded $125. Proceeds will
be used In send students to regional

"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.
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
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
"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
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
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-
"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."

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

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
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

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
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

missioner Tom Larimore that sanitary

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

viting homeowners to report any prob-

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

"Our police forre Is a local supple-
ment to available county police and

Jr., chairman of the city's board of
The trustees have been concerned for
some time that MSD's plan showed

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

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."
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

can't people in good health do the

NEXT WEEK: County agencies
Legislators hear of welfare, busing
By Robin Garr III
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-
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.
