The Bonfire was eliminated for Many reasons. The Bonfire has become a dangerous activity. One of our students was injured last year and required hospitalization. This also happened at the u of a this year i am told. I be Lieve a student was arrested last year for spraying gasoline on a policeman. We have had fights be tween our fire guards and various non Lathrop fire these attempts to Light the fire prior to the scheduled time present Many difficulties and Many hazards.

Both Borough clerk John Carlson and City manager Wally Droz who serves in the dual capacity of City clerk shake their Heads sadly and moan appropriately when con fronted with the task of explaining who can vote on what and where. Latest development casting a Little More confusion on the scene is the somewhat Early entry of Hamilton acres and Timberland subdivisions into the City. Yesterday morning the City Council took special action to make the annexed areas legally part of the City As of . Today. They passed ordinance 1365 which permits residents of the annexed areas to Register to vote the rest of this week. But Here s the hitch you live in Hamilton acres or Timberland and Register to vote in the City you will have to vote in two different places if you want to vote on both City and Borough issues. Since the City has legally advertised Only 12 precincts they must confine themselves to 12 precincts. Therefore residents of the area who Register to vote in the City will vote at precinct 12 or fair lanes bowl. If they vote on Borough propositions or Borough school Board members they must vote at the Hamilton acres fire Hall. If they do not Register to vote in the City election they vote at the fire Hall Only according to latest word from election officials. Both Carlson and Droz Call this the most confusing election both men say they la be glad when it s Over.
