She said he explained How he hid his abuse problems from his parents with deception. A a same so Mother also spoke to the group explaining the help the rehabilitation has been to her son and the family.

The first paragraph says we suggest adaptation to the particular family the group is seeking 500 signatures and the endorsement of 20 Community organizations in support of the codes and Tarvin said the endorsement should not be difficult. A the Only resource we have is our influence As parents a she said. A there has to be More Effort.

By Brian Macconnell staff writer improvement of Anderson township Park facilities and maintenance of current facilities is the of the ,62 Mill tax Levy the township Park Board has put on the june 3 ballot. Thomas Gaier president of the Board said a freeze in Federal Grant funds earmarked for development of a new Park on Forest Road has contributed to the need for the Levy. A we applied for and received approval of Federal Matching funds for the Forest Road project a Gaier said. A but since the funds have been Frozen prices keep going up making it aces scary to ask for a Levy. A Gaier said the funds committed at the Federal level will not now be Able to pay for the Forest Road Park. A if we want to get the Forest Road project going we have to ask for the Levy a he said. The Board has been working on a budget of approximately $103,000 per year Gaier said and the Levy will allow the Board to acquire More land since several studies have shown the township lacking in recreational facilities. A with Forest Road construction co6ts and land costs going As they Are we need to get land before the developers can get a Bead on it.

A the Levy Isnit a lot to ask. If the Market value of a Home is $100,000, the additional on the tax Bill would Only be $21.70 for a year. Its a cheap tax to build and maintain Parks a the Board president said. A maintenance building and rest room facilities Are Ateo High on the Park boards priority list if the Money is approved a general feeling against additional taxation should not Hurt the Chance for Levy passage Gaier said. A a we re pretty confident that we can get it passed. Despite a mood that says no tax people seem to know we need new Parks and they like and use Nagel the use of the Nagel Road Park has been a phenomenal a Gaier said a i always see a lot of mothers and their children in the picnic area of the Park a he said. A anyone who has been there can see Why we need other township if the Levy is approved by township voters Gaier said the Board will probably notify Federal authorities that Grant is no longer needed since it is Only allowed to be used for Forest Road and is no longer sufficient for that use.
