Magazine tie vote on pets Flossmoor ordinance is rejected Flossmoor trustees rejected a a a proper scooper ordinance for their Community monday. Trustee Patricia Paulsen head of the local animal control commission asked the Board of trustees to enact an ordinance amendment that would have required anyone walking a dog to carry a proper scooper or some other device for cleaning up droppings. She said Village Law requires the cleanup but that police have no Way of enforcing the Law unless they catch the dog owner shirking his responsibilities after the dog has a a acted a the pets owner would be More inclined to clean up after the animal if he was forced to carry along a scoop and Container when walking the dog off his premises was the rationale. Two other trustees William Kozel and Orval Adams supported the proposal but trustee William Santina g. R. Bobi Carrier and Charles Didrickson objected the motion failed As the result of a tie vote. Mrs. Paulsen also failed to win Board approval of another proposal that would have required policemen or firemen to capture and remove so called a wild animals from private property. Trustees said the police and fire departments already have this responsibility and that it was not necessary to write another regu la t Ion but the Board approved other recommendations which will be drafted into Law by Village attorney Daniel Hughes and formally considered by the trustees in october. They include a persons complaining about a neigh timers crime Boris Barking dog will have to sign an official complaint with police before the pet owner is cited for the nuisance a a domesticated animals such As horses can be kept on private pc per to no longer than 24 hours.

Shady retire inside to Magazine should look out for trustee William Santina who headed the Village Board meeting in the absence of ailing mayor Bert Reed voted to buy the timers but commented a your people spend $2,000 to go to Europe. Can to they go out and buy their own $6 timer a Stinnett said Many residents have their own timers but that this new program would enable them to utilize two of the devices when they Are out of town. He said the system had the support of the police department because studies have shown lighted Homes Are less victimized by burglars than darkened ones he cited the experience of an Oregon Community which made timers available to residents although he added that the City also was concerned about conserving Energy since it operated its own municipal electric Utility. A i consider this a very minor expense when you consider the Overall property loss from break ins a Stinnett said. Trustee Orval Adam William Kozel and Patricia Paulsen joined Santina in endorsing the proposal.

Patience pays a schnauzers Home by Charles Shields Lookout Lassie schnauzers Home Schnauzer is the 14-year-old miniature Schnauzer that disappeared last March from a Chicago Heights Home where he had been placed temporarily while his owner was a patient in St James Hospital. The Joyful reunion Between owner Herb Payton and pet took place Friday at a Chicago Heights Home. Right from the Start Schnauzer had indicated he did not care for the temporary care arrangement and a few Days later he took off evidently in search of Payton and More familiar surroundings Payton 61, is a diabetic who lives alone in a Mobile Home which he Parus at various places in the area while he works at Odd jobs. He acquired Schnauzer from an animal shelter in 1965, and the two had been together All that time when he Learned of schnauzers disappearance Payton placed an and in the stars a lost and found column. He also moved his Mobile Home to a supermarket parking lot in Steger which Schnauzer was familiar with and began a round the clock Vigil for several weeks hoping that the tiny Brown and White dog would show up the and and a later feature Story in the Star touched off an outpouring of Public Washington track to add thoroughbreds by Terry Boers when Winter thoroughbred racing comes to Washington Park on new year s Day Balmoral Park in Crete will be out in the cold. At least until 1978 the Illinois racing Board granted the never before tried Winter dates to the Arlington Park Washington Park thoroughbred Racetrack corporation at its meeting wednesday taking advantage of the 1975 Illinois racing act which made it possible for racing 12 months a year in Cook county Washington will open its doors on january 1 and run until March 6 Balmoral racing club which originally applied for thoroughbred dates immediately after labor Day thus will not have any thoroughbred dates in �?T77 but will have the january 1 to March 5 period in 1978 the initial proposal by the racing Board called for a splitting of the dates with Washington and Balmoral each to get approximately 23 Days of racing in 1977. Since neither Side was receptive the Board headed by Anthony Scariano of Park Forest decided to hand out dates on alternate years. A we re very very disheartened a said Thomsas Sweeney vice president and general manager at Balmoral a a we asked for Early fall dates we certainly feel disappointed with the dates we did Joseph Joyce chairman of the Board and president of the Arlington Park Washington Park Racetrack corporation sees it a different Way. Quot when the racing act went into effect in 1975, we wanted the Winter dates in 1976 he recalled a but the Board did no to award the dates until january of this year so we did no to have much Joyce who is also the senior vice president of Madison Square Garden corporation believes racing fans will Back the Experiment. A i think people in the South suburbs will help support the venture a he said a for at least should be Given the Opportunity. There seems to be a great Deal of interest in the Washington Park which saw its last thoroughbred meeting in the Spring of 1970, also will feature 78 nights of harness racing in 1977, beginning on october 1. A although it Isnit our life a blot a we think its a very doable thing a Joy let said a it will be a time consuming expend Sive Job to keep the track in shape it u ill require round the clock maintenance. A a we be sunk millions and millions of c Iol Lars into Washington Park the last cot pie of years and its in better shape tha n it Ever was wed like to get As much use out of it As Joyce says he has had favourable r each Tion from a number of Illinois horse men. A i already have about 20 or 30 trainers on the grounds at Arlington Park w no be said they a go to Washington Quot Joyce said a in fact some of them Are quite anxious i done to foresee any trouble getting Hon ies Quot i know the big expensive Stab s will still go to Florida for the Winter ant 1 foolish pleasure wont be out Here but horses wont be the problem a Balmoral which will need a major face lifting before the runners can run is no doubt going to feel the Pinch. �?o1 guess you could say i was c Nilly towards the Winter racing a said s Weeney trying to keep his sense of humor. A Winter racing is far More Fea sible for the harness horse. You can keep i he track hard packed and then just add t a Limestone screen. It will take a lot m Ore work for thoroughbreds a not viewing the project As opt Imi tical sympathy for Payton and his dog scores of people visited the Mobile Home offer ing to help search for Schnauzer Payton t Ilso received More than a dozen tips on the dogs whereabouts but they All pro Yed false a i never knew such a Little dog co uld cause such a big fuss a Payton said then on Friday Payton received a a All from the Steger police they said a we in an in Chicago Heights had called to re it Ort finding a lost dog monday near her hoi tie a neighbor had recalled Reading t he Star Story about Schnauzer and Sugg est de that the police might be Able to lot ate the owner the dog Steger police s.

A under our statutes we have Many considerations including doing things in the Best interest of racing As Well As the Industry a we feel the Winter Experiment could be beneficial to both racing associations. It was an alternative and the Best of the possible alternatives in the judgment of the Sweeney and the Balmoral club know where they stand a fall we can do is have one helluva of harness meet this year from october 13 to november 20 Quot he said.
