Dover Daily Reporter (Newspaper) - March 3, 1964, Dover, Ohio Council Moves To Install Water, Sewer For CIG Plant Tile Community Improvement Corp. has asked Dover to extend water and sewer lines to its Bobbie Brooks Inc. pilot plant on the Children’s Home site on N. Tuscarawas Ave., and City Council has initiated steps to comply. Following a 15-minute recess last night to study the request made in a letter to Mayor C. LeMoyne Luthy, the lawmakers authorized the preparation of legislation to proceed with the installations. Estimated cost will be in the neighborhood of $3,200, a sum which several councilmen expressed was necessary to “show Dover’s faith in attracting industry to the area.” City Engineer Don Dummer- muth explained during the recess that the sewer line could be installed with city labor at an estimated $1,200. The water line cost would be approximately $1,-800. Both installations will be made to the property line, running along Florence Ave. from existing facilities on Howe St. Council, in its action on the CIC request, also approved a recommendation by Water Supt. Walter HLsrich for the replace ment ol 40-year-old >inch galvanized pipe with 4-inch cast iron pipe for water service on Main St. Also approved was the purchase from appropriated funds of a 34-ton pickup truck with snow plow attachment for use by the Park and Cemetery Department, and a used utility body truck of 34 to one ton capacity for the Sewer Department.

I Charter Status As County School Head Will Be Studied By Ohio Board HEALTH ADVISORY COUNCIL MEETS McKeever, Ladrach Appointed W. E. Laws is retiring as superintendent of Tuscarawas County schools on Sept. I. The educator, who has logged 43 years as an Ohio teacher, coach and administrator — the last 28 as head of the Tuscarawas system, announced that intention at last night’s regular county board meeting. Laws, a native of Bethesda, O., will be 65 years of age in May. He came to Tuscarawas County in 1927 as executive head of Mineral City schools, and in 1931 he became chief administrator at Goshen Local. Elected county superintendent in August, 1936, Laws became the second so named in Tuscarawas County to hold a position created by the Ohio Legislature in 1914, replacing the retiring Charles Barthelmeh, who had served as superintendent since the office’s inception.

Since 1934, Laws has managed 25 county basketball tournaments, and for the past 20 years, many sectional and district bas- See VV. E. LAWS, Page 14 County Board Scans Salary By Pete Groh Daily Reporter Staff Writer The Tuscarawas County Board of Education last night approved a recommended teacher’s salary schedule, announced members of a steering committee for the proposed countywide vocational high school and reluctantly accepted the resignation of Supt. W. E. Laws. The board also entered in the minutes a copy of the 5th District Court of Appeals’ order to the board which deals with the disputed consolidation of Union Local School District. It was noted that the word “forthwith” had been removed from the entry. See COUNTY BOARD, Page 5 IN STATE REPORT: Compliment Goes To Tusky Valley No date has been set for action on the matter. The 5-member board accepted the teacher’s salary schedule, which calls for an average pay hike of $200 per year, after a lengthy discussion. It was pointed out that the schedule is only a guide and that the various county boards can hire personnel at other rates, either higher or lower. The pay guide, prepared by a committee of 3 teachers and an elementary and senior high principal in the county, ranges from a starting base of $3,600 Taxpayers of the Tuscarawas Valley School District, school officials and its board of education can take a collective how for “maintaining a school plant that is adaptable to the demands of a gowing and changing education program.” The State Department of Education made that commendation in a report which summed up its findings following a 2-day study of the school system Jan. 24 and Jan. 28.

Hennis, charged with grand larceny by trick, is expected to be set today, Northern District County Court Judge Charles R. Eckert said this morning. Hennis, 42. of 1920 Wooster Ave., Dover, is charged with unlawfully gaining possession of $12,505 in checks from John F. Reicosky of RD 3, Dover. Rei-cosky alleges he entered into a contract w'ith Franklin Life Insurance Co., of which Hennis was the agent, for a 20-payment life policy on Oct. 23, 1962. Reicosky, in his suit filed last Oct. 23, said that he paid several premiums and then paid for the policy in its entirety Jan. 7, 1962, with a check for $12,505. After that, the firm notified him the policy had lapsed and was no longer valid. Hennis, arrested on a warrant from the court by Dover police at his residence at 7:45 p.m. Sunday, posted a $2,000 bond and was released. “The hearing date,” Judge Eckert said, “will be set when Hennis comes into the court—I gave his attorney that prerogative—probably today.” cation officially were notified last night that the Ohio Department of Education has recommended discontinuance of the high school. The announcement — in the form of a 3-page report — w-as expected and will be no great surprise to the district’s taxpayers. The suprise, according to Board President E. C. Lorenz, was that “Stone Creek High was singled out from others in the county that are in the same boat.” The state action leaves the board in a ticklish position. It must either deal with other districts in an effort to consolidate, ask the County Board of Education to make the first move, or pay tuition to send the high school students to other districts. Five other county high schools, Midvale, Gnadenhutten, Port Washington, Tuscarawas and Baltic, all reportedly were notified in their reports that they should make an aggressive move toward consolidation. Lorenz said he expected several districts to receive the “discontinuance” notices at the same time, making consolidation negotiations easier. The school charter will remain in force, at least until after the close of the school term, although State Supt. E. E. Holt has indicated the matter will be discussed at Monday’s meeting of the State Board of Education, which will make the final decision.

Willard McKeever of 1112 Oak St.. Dover, owner of McKeever Decorating Co. and a former Dover councilman, was named to a 5-year term on the board, succeeding Dr. B. R Lewis of Dover, whose term expired. Dover Mayor C. LeMoyne Luthy stated that he had talked with Dr. Lewis about another term. “Dr. Lewis said he did not want to be renamed if McKeever would accept the nomination.” Luthy told the 23 at tending. “McKeever will do the1 Attorney General’s ruling and an Health Board a good job.” Paul Ladrach of RD I, Stone Creek, was named to fill the 2 years in the term of W. R. Patterson of RD I. Fresno, (Bucks Township), who resigned retroactive to Feb. 29. Patterson, who also is secretary for the County Trustees & Clerks Assn., said his resignation was prompted by an Ohio opinion from Prosecutor Harlan Spies that serving as a Health Board member and secretary for the trustees’ group was incompatible and one of the posts should be resigned.

The commendation was made by Stanley L. Fox, school supervisor for the State Department of Education, who surveyed the high school in January. Gtraway High, which Fox said fcenW bo continued on the list of schools approved by the department, has many needs, however. Its reorganization and enlargement has given it potential and promise for growth and development, according to the report. “The challenge is to develop an increasingly comprehensive and adaptable educational program,” Fox said, “and this will require continued administrative See GARAN AY, Pare S Mother Refuses To Pay Parking Fine, Goes To Jail MILWAUKEE, Wis.

In reviewing a recent study on the facilities and services of the local branch, made by E. W.
