would like on that end of the Theyre doing a real good but I think they could be doing a little bit Brucks If they could be doing thats not doing a real good Moos Brucks had some problems last year with getting things out of the computer the way his or tax assessors from the districts par ticipating wanted He told directors that this he was trying to correct some of those problems by suggesting program changes here and But you have to be careful with he If you change a program one more often than youll mess it up somewhere Im afraid they Pickett over extended they took on more than they
