Creston News Advertiser (Newspaper) - November 20, 1971, Creston, Iowa Visiting with neighbors by k. I. Vul Nostrand it May be possible Reston City and Union county can work out something whereby the voting machines can be used in City it actions hereafter. As a time Saver in results if nothing else Many would appreciate this. Officials of the two bodies have been visiting informally also about a setup where the City would make available a member of their staff like a police officer or a meter Man for helping service the machines. The county now has a Man from the engineers office. The City member could assist the county service Man in county elections the county fellow in the City elections Etc. 3 id the Creston news advertiser sat., nov. 20, 1971. She had a part with the a a relaxers As they Call sort of seventh inning break in a meeting and then awarded some prizes. Very personable resourceful Quick on the comment she made that part of the program entertaining and relaxing. She simply radiated enthusiasm. Having More than one locally based service Man is important because the machines while always stored at election spots do have to be put into action at about the same time. Can to move them out until about time of election. The county has wanted an extra Man for this. Helps As Backstop too. Working with the City could make this possible. Incidentally the voting machines Are now paid for chairman Harold Symonds reports. When purchased payment was set up Over a few year period. The Price was $46,000 or $48,000, or about that figure. Highway no. 25 North out of Creston is becoming a Busy stretch particularly the portion from no. 34 North through town and past the College and Hospital. One can get in a regular traffic Parade there. The Highway commission is said to have this in the program four or five years hence. We want to make sure they keep it there and keep bringing it up. Because the cars really accumulate. Of course the blocking of Townline Road while it is being paved no doubt shoves some traffic onto no. 25 South that would go through there. Still the College and Hospital traffic As Well As the usual no. 25 makes this a Busy place. We want to say a special word or two about a former neighbor Bill Hawks who finally lost a rugged Battle with a heart ailment this week. The Hawks lived next door for a number of years and like neighbors we have up Here on North Spruce very excellent.

The Section from Afton to Lorimor Junction is paved. The piece on East to Osceola will be Gravelled surfaced too. But there is a hitch there the Bridge Over the Burlington lines just West of Thayer Isnit finished and wont be finished this Winter. They should be Able to get things going next summer so it wont take All summer to pave it. Has been quite a problem this past summer the East and West i touring in this area. But will be quite a thing when it is reopened. No. 34 will really be a Road across Iowa. It really should strike a vehicle count then be first year in several there Hasni to been a piece of it Hung up. Speaking of old depots up at Webster City they have an Illinois Central depot in downtown area that is being closed out. They Are going to move it and Are raising a special fund to do it. Will make it into a museum. It has been built about 75 years. Familiar sound Isnit it the Creston depot would be quite a problem to move All those Brick. Any moving of the Brick we have a feeling would be a a Down the Chute As they say. But the Burlington does t need to move it for track space. Interesting How the old building just continues to stand and stand. Nobody much wants to comment about it. One sort of gets the idea Many feel it should be Tom Down removed but they think it sort of Sac religious to suggest such a thing. Want it out of Way but somebody else do it.
