There's a :rioise ordinance, it mainly pertains to motorcycles, and mini-bikes but does prohibit "unreasonable, loud, 'disturb- ing unnecessary noise yrtiich causes niate- rial distress or discomfort to people of sensibilities." Better wait a few weeks. On a 105 degree day, it might difficult to prove the noise was unneces- sary, Q. Concerning beautificalion In the downtown area, what, happened lo the trees around the telephone building? Someone let them die. Is it (be city's responsibility to maintain and water the trees? A. Originally, says, Bob Bridges of Southwestern Bell, the city agreed to care for the trees if the phone company would buy them and also the containers. Three or so months after they were planted, the city decided it couldn't afford to take care of them so responsibility fell back on the plione company. Every single tree has.been replaced at least once, says Bridges, and watering and maintenance has become a real chore. Kids from the movie theater would throw cups and trash in lile planters, maintenance was an every morning oc- currence. Anyhow. ithe'trees have died, will be removed and not replaced. Q.

Bul if you expect to stay in the nursing home, after six months :your home would count against your cligi- bility for Supplemental Security Income. Q. I need a few rattlesnakes (dead) to make bells out of their skins. Know where I could get some? A. Tom J. Goss, Ileporiei-'News- corre- spondent from Colorado City, has your name and. phone number.
