Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - April 9, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa $7,800 Starting Wage in Independence District district would receive additional $216,008 in state aid next year. The majority of the board members felt they would rather give a higher base salary than approve the long-range costs of the percentage change of the increments. When accepting the proposal Driscoll read a statement on behalf of the teachers saying they accepted the board's offer with “reluctance and regret.” Red Rotating Lights Asked For Capitol DES MOINES IIDPA) - The majestic state capitol is about to take on a new look at night.

The meeting was held at the Middle school commons with a large majority of the teachers present. The new $7,800 base represents an overall increase of about 9.5 percent and will cost the district approximately $122,000. As chairman of the salary committee of the Independence Community Education Assn., Gene Driscoll requested a base pay of $7,600 for teachers but dome at the request of the Fed with some percentage increases oral Aviation Authority (FAA). in    the    salary    index schedule.

Herman was sentenced Monday to one year in the reformatory at Anamosa in connection with the beating of his three-year-old stepson, Shawn, on Jan. 24. Herman, 23, of 3000 J street SVV, pled guilty earlier in Linn district court to a charge of assault with intent to inflict great bodily injury in the incident. The county attorney had recommended Herman be placed on probation if he agreed to undergo psychiatric treatment. Judge Harold Vietor said Herman would not be placed on probation and that he could withdraw his guilty plea since it was based on a plea bargain involving a probation recommendation from the county attorney. The defendant did not withdraw the plea, and the judge ordered him to turn himself in to serve the term no later than noon April 22. The child has been placed in a different home. His injuries included a severe fracture of a hand bone. Some concern about the way the civil service test for Cedar Rapids police chief candidates was conducted has been voiced Commissioner James Steinbeck was elected to the council.

Truck Firms Drop Request To Hike Rates Dick Petska, manager of the Chamber of Commerce transportation bureau, says a change in tactics by trucking firms is taking place in the “double bottom truck’’ issue. Proponents for a IO percent surcharge on freight into Iowa, which was to compensate carriers for “loss of efficiency and resulting fuel costs” due to the Iowa law against 65-foot twin trailers, have w ithdraw n their plan submit ted to the Middlemost Motor Freight bureau. Now, says Petska, firms are urging an amendment to the state legislature’s transportation bill to legalize the long trucks. Petska says the surcharge plan was apparently withdrawn due to pressure by shippers who felt they were being “punished for something the legislators had done.” Injured; Both Face Charges Two motorcyclists suffered minor injuries Monday in separate accidents.
