Programming and scheduling Engineer G W, Anderson, warning the commissioners he was bringing them “bad news, not glad tidings,” reported construction costs in fiscal year 1975 are going to be up 33 percent over projected estimates.  Added to this is a reduction  ’Sippi River Bridge Demolition Plans Told  MARQUETTE — Tentative plans for the demolition of the present Marquette to Prairie du Chien Mississippi river bridge have been set by Wisconsin highway officials.  C. D. Anderson, district chief engineer of the Wisconsin division of highways at the Lacrosse office said Wednesday he has completed plans and specifications for the demolition of the bridge.  The plans call for a bid letting on the project Sept. 17 with demolition work to begin about Dec. I. Completion of the project is expected in June of 1975.  Anderson notified Prairie du Chien Mayor Al Winter of the plans.  No mention was made, however, of Marquette’s request to retain the west end of the bridge as a scenic overlook.  in resources, brought about by less than anticipated federal funding and increased budgetary requirements approved by the Iowa legislature.  Present Program Anderson said the present j975 program assumes the availability of $101.6 million for new right-of-way and construction, including $10.9 million of over-obligation to be paid from 1976 resources.  However, only $80.3 million will be available.  “This smaller amount,” he said, “must cover the $12-15 million carried over from 1974 due to inflation, plus proposed projects now estimated to cost  $133.6 million.” He added that recommendations will be made as to what projects should be cut down, scrapped or deferred.  Federal Funds  Anderson said latest indications are the federal government will provide Iowa with $60 million for all programs next year, which is $15 million lower than expected.  And, he continued, the Iowa geenral assembly approved $7.1 million more in budgetary costs than was anticipated.  Vice-chairman Stephen Garst responded to the report by saying it looked like a reduction in personnel and projects were imminent.  velopment programs.

Sentimental Journey In a Model T Ford  A Davenport denist, Dr. Alan D. Hathaway, is set to take off on a sentimental journey Sunday from New York’s battery to San B’rancisco in a model T Ford.  Dr. Hathaway, who plans to travel on historic U.S. highway 30 for as much of his trek as possible, is scheduled to stop overnight in De Witt Friday and pass through Cedar Rapids next Saturday.  Dr. Hathaway notes that 50 years ago a similar trip again using highway 30, was made in the one millionth model T.  His auto, appropriately decorated, is ithe ten millionth model T, of 1924 vintage.  Ignoring offers from gas companies and others to sponsor his trip — and gain advertising material — Hathaway plans to go it alone for the estimated two weeks.  He does, however, have an air-conditioned camper to back him up.  Get a Physician  WHAT CHEER - There is a possibility What Cheer may have a physician in a few months.  Spearheaded by the What Cheer Lions club, a committee of eight has been working on the matter, and Dr. M. L. McClena-han of Sigourney is seriously considering maintaining an office in What Cheer.  Several details remain to be worked out before such a plan can be concluded, lf those details can be worked out, Dr. McClenahan would continue to live in Sigourney, continue his practice there, and would be at the What Cheer office on a parttime basis.  A nurse would be on duty in the What Cheer office during morning and afternoon office hours.  An option to buy the Farrow residence was signed by the Lions club. Jt would be used as the doctor’s office. Were this to become a reality both the Keo-i kuk county hospital, Sigourney, Mahaska hospital, Oskaloosa, would be available to his patients.  What Cheer has been without a physician since April 8, 1972, when Dr. John Maxwell retired -ii the age of 81, after 58 years of practice in What Cheer.  30 YEARS AGO - Lt. Gen. Mark W. Clark predicted Rome would fall “before many days have passed.”  high school juniors & seniors - give Coe College a try!
