The effort, which was initiated as part of the national Take Pride in America program, is conducted annually as a way to preserve and maintain the environment and promote stewardship of pub- lic lands. Volunteers, both groups and individuals, are needed to assist in the cleanup of trash along the shoreline as well as other areas throughout the park. Volunteers are asked to report to any boat launch area starting at T.30. At noon, all volunteers are invited to enjoy a free lunch and entertainment. Volunteers are also eligible to win door prizes just for participating. The lunch will be provided courtesy of the Gateway Foods group and McDonald's Restau- rant of Huntingdon. Following .the meal, participants will be entertained by a variety of local talent. Vocalist Debbie Higgins will open the 'show with The Star Spangled Banner" with a formal color presentation by the Hunt- ingdon County's Sheriff Passe. Other entertainers will include Dough Sonny Davis of Tyrone, and members of Huntingdon Belles Beaus Alumni Chorus. Over in door prizes will be awarded throughout the after- noon. The Adolph Coors Co. of Gold- en, Colo., has supported the local effort as well as similar under- takings for several years.

Repaying project in Bedford begins BEDFORD Work started early Tuesday morning on a project to repave Pitt Street in Bedford Borough. The project also includes resur- facing 1.8 miles of Route 915 in Broad Top Township, according to PennDOT District 9 assistant construction engineer Keith Eichelberger. New Enterprise Stone and Lime Co. Inc. is the contractor for the project. Workers started by milling off of the top surface at Pitt and Richard streets. The milling oper- ation moved to the west end of the borough near the Route 220 ramps. The contractor is milling off the intersection first so the contrac- tor for the traffic light signal can complete the installation of the loop detectors in the pavement, Eichelbergersays. New Enterprise workers are expected to finish the Pitt Street repaving job by Labor Day week- end. During the contractor's work hours, parking will be prohibited on Pitt Street, the portion of Route 30 that goes through the borough. Reade Twp. considers new per capita tax By Linda Hudkins Staff Writer BLANDBURG Reade Township residents over age IS may be shelling out another 55 a year in nuisance taxes if a pro- posed ordinance to collect a per capita tax is passed by the township supervisors next month. Township officials have adver- tised an ordinance that will enable them to charge residents a per capita tax of Howev- er, the Glendale School District has already levied a per capi- ta tax under Section 511 of the state's Tax Enabling Act, which limits to the amount a resi- dent can be charged. That law says if both the municipality and the district enact the tax, they must split the Township Solicitor William Lynn Hollen said Tuesday that he believed the school district was already collecting and that the township would just The levy could bring the town- ship up to begin sharing in the proceeds of the tax. The district's business manag- er, Jennie Ivory, said the mis- conception could have come from the fact that the district also collects a per capita tax of from each resident over the age of 18 under section 679 of the Public School Code. Hollen said that several years ago he took action that allowed the township to collect a share of the real estate transfer tax which formerly was all collected by Glendale. A 2-pcrcent tax is collected from the proceeds of real estate transfers, of which 1 percent goes to the state and the other percent is split between Glendale and Reade Township. According the Cambria Coun- ty Recorder of Deeds office, in some cases the schools still keep the full percent. About 500 people are in the age group to pay the new tax which could net the township up to Ivory says. If passed, the tax will be col- lected by the district's tax collec- tor along with their worth of the 511 tax, then forwarded to the township, Hollen says. The township supervisors will vote on the ordinance at their Sept. 12 meeting.
