Copies of the letter were sent to Chance and four newspapers including the journal been a juvenile court referee in Sharonville for 18 years. Other juvenile court officials also attended the meeting. A the meeting went very Well a Taylor said a and i think we Are really on our Way to getting some kind of court program in the Taylor said two different types of juvenile court programs now exist in the county. He termed one an unofficial system and the other an official system. A in the unofficial system a he explained a the referee does not actually have court authority. 1ram a Case is brought before him. He can recommend certain action be taken. Although it is up to parents and the offender whether or not the action is obeyed the referee can choose to make the hearing an official one and Send it downtown if his suggestions Are not the official system Taylor said would mean that a Branch of the juvenile court like Sharonville a would be set up in Anderson township with All the by Cheryl Bauer staff writer ohioans for a practical litter Law Are convinced that state Issue one which would require a 1,0-cent Deposit on every can and bottle of soft drinks Beer and malt beverages will not solve the states litter problem. And they re spending $900,000 to convince other ohioans. The anti Issue one group says that mandatory deposits will increase costs to bottlers can manufacturers retailers and Consumers. They say 10,000 jobs will be lost in Ohio and that the amount of litter will not be Sigivie Antly reduced. Michigan where a Deposit Law went into effect in 1978, if often pointed to by litter Law advocates As a prime example of the Pitfalls of a a bottle Kroger which has 110 stores in Michigan has spent $825,000 on capital improvements there during the last year according to Jim Mcintyre who is a Public relations spokesman for Cincinnati area Kroger stores. Charges of Price fixing in the Sale of Beer and soft drinks Are l egg raise Din Michigan. Mcintyre said Kroger can justify All of the expenditures it has had to make. Collection time a Friendly reminder that this is collection week for the journal carriers. Within the next few Days they will be knocking on your door for collections. When you pay your 60 cents be sure to ask for your receipt its Worth in percent off any Purchase at Larosae a in Forestville. Thank you. The journal newspapers c a Ercula lion 1 department about 100 of the Michigan stores have had to be at least partially remodeler to accommodate the increase of returnable bottles and cans. Shelf space is also being lost in stores to accommodate conveyors to handle the containers. A clearly prices for Consumers will go up a Mcintyre said. Just How much prices will go up has not been determined yet but estimates Are about $1 a Case for Beer and soft drinks. Costs in Michigan Are increasing for bottlers and distributors As Well he added. Mcintyre said it makes him angry when proponents of Issue one say that if customers take their bottles and cans Back for the Deposit Money the Deposit Law will not Cost them anything. That is a misleading statement he claimed. Labor costs have risen $2.6 million in Michigan in the last year due to the bottle Deposit Law he said. Added personnel to sort and count All the extra returnable requires 60 additional Man hours each week. Stirling and counting bottles and cans is about the lowest paying Job at Kroger but it pays about $5 per hour plus fringes Mcintyre said. A that makes it a very expensive proposition a he noted. Containers must be counted twice once at the counter when the customers brings them in and then again in the Back room after they Are sorted. All containers must be sorted according to vendors. Punting and sorting containers is one of the least popular jobs in the store Mcintyre commented. Usually by the time a person has been trained and knows which containers go to which vendors Means a constant re Taining they have enough sonority to program for the replacements move up to another Job. That Michigan stores have also in Michigan forced pm standing inline. A it a tdf4 is 0 it cd Jiing with forced deposits. that works. Rosters like this Are appearing in Many local grocery stores As the voting Dale for state Issue one the a bottle Bill Quot approaches. Retailers say that mandatory deposits on All bottles and cans of soft drinks Beer and malt beverages w ill increase Cost of those products to Consumers raise stores operating costs and Lead to Long lines at stores when customers show up with bags full of used bottles and cans. Many retailers belong to a group called ohioans for a practical litter Law. That group advocates passage of a tax on manufacturers of items that could end up As litter. The tax Money would be used to clean up litter and to educate the Public not to litter. Powers of the court downtown. Taylor cited two main advantages in the establishment of a juvenile court in Anderson township. A a first a he said a it is advantageous As far As the docket of the court is concerned. The court said they have around 110 to 140 cases per year from continued to Page a-7grocery stores fear changes bottle Bill journal Wolyk to broadcast returns for the second straight election the journal newspapers and radio station Wolyk will Combine their respective news staffs to provide the most Complete and up to Date results of the nov. 6 election. A the arrangement worked extremely Well last november a said de Wrightjr journal executive editor. A so we decided to do it Mark Jordan general manager of Wolyk said his station was a pleased to use the skills and knowledge of the journal election coverage will begin at 8 p m. Election night and continue until All the results Are in. Mark Heglin journal managing editor and Brian Macconnell reporter specializing in Eastern Hamilton county will broadcast returns from the Hamilton county Board of elections. The Veteran Wolyk staff will broadcast returns from the Clermont county Board of elections. A both Wolyk and the journal papers have the same interest to provide fast Complete results of the races in the area a said Heglin. A we find the broadcast medium is the Best Way to meet this goal especially when we can utilize a local radio station like Lyk a will mandate reported people having to wait in line longer to turn in containers and receive their deposits. The heaviest Days for returns Are Friday saturday and sunday which naturally Are the heaviest shopping Days. Kroger has tried to hire More personnel to handle the extra work on those Days but Mcintyre said that is also expensive especially on sunday when time and a half or double time is paid Quot. Currently about 60 percent of the soda pop Kroger Sells in Ohio is in returnable bottles. But about 95-99 percent of the Beer customers buy at Kroger is in non returnable con to i ners. Kroger officials dispute claims by proponents of Issue one that the measure would save Energy. Mcintyre pointed to a study by the Batelle Institute of Columbus Ohio which found two flaws in the Energy saving premise. According to the Batelle study Mcintyre said proponents fail to take into consideration the extra Energy that will be used in the conversion of facilities and system. The Kroger spokesman said the Batelle study also showed that proponents were confusing Oil and Coal use in computing savings. While there is a potential shortage of Oil Coal is still readily available he said. Mcintyre noted that a Michigan businessman was once quoted As saying that mandatory deposits in that state were a $60 million answer to a $3 million problem. He said he does not know if those figures Are exactly right but he agrees with the reasoning behind the statement. A mandatory deposits seem so easy and simple a Mcintyre said a but they Are a woefully inadequate solution to a very real this weekend in Forest Hills state sen. Robert a.
