Mental Health Great Financial, Social Problem ONTONAGON-Judge' Joseph M. Donnelly, Houghton, spoke to the Ontonagon County Board of Supervisors on mental health Tuesday afternoon at the Ontonagon Courthouse. He stressed that this is an increasing problem In the county, state and na tion. Donnelly noted that besides a sociological problem, mental health is a great financial problem. He stated that the first 12 months that a patient is in the Newberry State Hospital, the county must pay $5.90 a day. Ten years ago that rate was $3.33 a day and the costs are going up each year. Judge Donnelly feels that the remedy to the problem lies par-i a 11 y in Act 54. Act 54 authorized any number of counties to join and form a mental health  c 11 n 1 c> The  regulations are that If such a group forms, a permanent board of 12 members is chosen and adopts a State Mental Health approved budget. If this is done, the state will pay 60 per cent of the total cost and the counties 40 per cent. Judge Donnelly related to the board that the three counties of Baraga, Houghton and Keweenaw have already gone on record as approving a four county Mental Health Clinic set up. He distributed a financial breakdown of what is now being paid by Ontonagon County to the Upper Peninsula Guidance Clinic and to  the Upper Peninsula Mental Health Association   at Marquette. * ? ? - Donelly noted that In the four county endeav o r, the amount each county would contribute would nearly double, but it would mean that there would be a permanent psychiatrist for child and adult needs in the Copper Country. He outlined the Rice Memorial Clinic for Mental Health and the personnel that has staffed it since its building. The judge informed the supervisors that the clinic now has a chance to get a part time psychiatrist. He said the advantage of a four county unit would be that a psychiatrist will be available for the entire area and there would be no need to travel to Marquette. Donnelly urged that the board of supervisors consider adopting the resolution and approaching i two temporary members for the \ M e n t a 1 Health Board. The tern p o r a r y members from Houghton, Baraga, Keweenaw and Ont o n a g o n Counties would elect a permanent board. A lengthy question and answer period between the supervisors and Donnelly followed and a resolution to form a four county Mental Health Clinic was passed unanimously. James Hilger and Louis O'Malley were appointed as temporary board members and met Friday at Houghton to elect a permanent board of 12 members. As the next item on the county's agenda, Sheriff George D. Mogan introduced Ferris Lucas, secretary-treasurer of the Michigan Sheriff's Association, who spoke to the group on the importance of patroling and man power in the control of crime in this county. He praised the county's receiving of a traffic award for last year and of the improve ment of the record keeping sys tern of the department. Lucas explained that the accident rate v'i>w. �*{ ,       ,        y  iff,,       � ; if > ,      � w -v.

(AP wirephoto) and the miles traveled rate has gone up in the state as well as the c r 1 n e rate, and questioned the advisability of cutting the sheriff's department fr o m seven men to three. ? ? ? Lucas said, "I cannot see how three men can be expected to do the same job that it took seven men to perform in t h e past." The supervisors in turn praised Mogan's work and noted that in the past the department has gone over the budget's limit, time after time and the supervisors did not control it. It was noted that with the advent of the new administration they have insisted on strict adherence to the budget. Lu c a s said that Sheriff Mogan had agreed to eliminate two men from the force of seven volun tarlly but said "Frankly I don't know what the citizens can expect in the way of service with only three men, when one must be at the desk at all times In other action, the supervis ors went on record as supporting the same deer opening day throughout the state and a copy of the same will be sent to all concerned officials and depart ments. Chief Deputy Allen Carr appeared before the board with a request on behalf of the other two deputies for overtime pay at a rate of $1.25 for time over cost the county as well as the other requests and present them at the January meeting..Howev* er, the board decided that t h  false arrest bond should be approved immediately at a cost of $17.50. In other action, Duncan Cameron and Attorney Donald L. Munroe spoke of the efforts being made to receive an Accelerated Public Works Grant for the buidllng of a new jail as well as a new county garage at Bruce Crossing. The group has spoken to the state and area representatives in Washington and everything is being done to accomplish this. However, Mun-ro pointed out that Ontonagon County has already recel v e d from the Federal Governm e n t more money than many of the larger counties in the state. Supervisor Myhren noted that the representatives should be advised that the only thing keeping the jail from being condemned is that application lor grants are on file and If that door is closed the jail would be condemned. Munro recommended that the board formulate plans of steps to take if t h� grant is received for the county has only 60 days following notification to raise the necessary corresponding monies needed. * ? ? Attorney Munro alos spoke 48 hours; hospital insur arte elort the defeated harbor hill and paid; two weeks vacation with stated that efforts are under pay, and the payment of a false way to have it placed on next arrest bond with accompanying year's agenda, and of the work insurance. Carr noted that in case of a false arrest, the deputy stands to lose due to 1 a w suits, all they and their family own. He then outlined the pay and fringe benefits received by the village police department as compared to the county. He said he and the other deputies were not asking for a 40 hour week but only for overtime after 48 hours. He explained that the special deputies lined to relieve the regular men are not trained for police work and have regular jobs that they must attend to. * * ? The board held a lengthy discussion with Carr and pointed out that many of the requests were well taken. They asked him to try and formulate how much the overtime provision would of u.p.c.a.p.
