Obituaries Union make a firm commitment Mon Day night to give the raises. It has been in excess of two and one half years since the employees last got an increase in Heinz told the 105 employees at the saturday meeting. He said the Public works employees would not be looking for an increase in excess of 10 per cent of their present two weeks ago the Public works department employees staged a two Day sick out because no salary increases were called for in the new budget but they returned to work when City manager Milton Davis said he would study the budget and try to find a Way All City employees could get raises. Heinz said that he did not believe there would be another sick out tuesday morning should the commission fail to make provisions for pay raises. He warned the workers that they have two a City worker has just two rights the right to cry and the right to quit. He has no other a news release issued by Heinz said in part the time Lias come for the City Blue Collar worker to unite behind a common cause to fight for what is fair and right. It has been nearly free years since these City employees received an increase in pay. This coupled with the Cost of living soaring to new Heights Over the past three years Means the City worker has fallen Way behind. He has not received a red cent. The City commission has stated that it did not have the funds available to raise salaries for the City workers. Yet on the other hand the wages of employees in the Utility authority were increased. This alone was enough to destroy the morale of the City Blue Collar Heinz noted that the spokesman for the City workers sent a letter to Summerlin and the City commission sept. 17, asking for a 5.5 per cent across the Board pay increase. Vie now state that 5.5 per cent is not enough. The City worker is entitled to a retroactive pay adjustment for the last two and one half years. This organization will request that the City com Mission delay passage of the new budget to enable us to present them the City workers Heinz said. Summerlin said the 10 per cent request was not Only impractical it s impossible. The Federal government s wage and Price control rail allow absolutely no More than 7 per cent in creases and thai would have to be done by a petition. Without filing a petition 5.5 per cent is the top raise you can Summerlin said that the City commission had granted Many requests of lie City employees including increased hospitalize Ion benefits pay raises in creased Days off retirement and life insurance benefits. We Are in such a financial bind that we fear we will have to discontinue services if a pay raise is granted and we ask their tolerance for even a few Summerlin said. Cates Issue the warrant. If the warrant in t issued Beasley said he would file a petition in circuit court asking for a writ of mandamus deman Ding that one of he judges Issue the warrant. They must accept the affidavit and Issue the warrant. Then they can hear the Case on its merits and dismiss it if they Beasley stated. He said he and Gates were asking for the warrant because Roloph pointed a gun and fired a shot and we now have additional testimony thai will show that Roloph fired the first shot that Hotoph told the jury that it was Cates who fired the first shot. Beyer testified that the first shot went Over my and was fired by Roloph. Cales insists that it was Roloph who fired the first shot. Cates and Beasley did not gel to talk with fireman Friday but they did talk with asst. State attorney Steve Hayskar who prosecuted the Case against Cates and Beyer. When they asked him if the state would file the charge against Roloph Cates said Hayskar Lold us he did t know what or. Brennan s reaction would be to our request but that it would be highly irregular or the state to turn around and prefer charges against their Star witness in the Hayskar told Cates and Beasley to go to Defriesf s office. Defriest was not in the office but when he was finally contacted he referred the request to judge Alderman Cales said. The reason i did not Issue a Defriest said when contacted saturday is because the whole thing originated in county court. I sent him to the eos it that had originally handled the whole judge Alden an Lold Cates that he would have to have a written statement from the slate attorney saying that he would Puli the Issue and that until be got he letter there was nothing lie could Cates said. Alderman told the news Tribune that whether or not a Man is prosecuted depends entirely upon the state attorney in these felony cases and i simply referred him Back to the state attorney to determine whether the state attorney will Alderman said that it the state attorney has no intentions of prosecuting the Case then it would serve no purpose for me to serve the Alderman said he also wanted to wait and see if there s any basis for issuing the warrant. Cates feels that charges should be placed against Hotoph since he fired the first Cates said. Both men were Al the scene of the shooting where Hayes was killed. Both fired guns although neither fired he fatal shot. Cates got five years for his involvement and Hotoph went free. That s what bothers Wayne Cates. Testimony at the trial revealed that Beyers and Hayes had swapped a few words outside the hotel s lounge earlier that night and that Hayes left Only to return to the hotel sometime around . With Hotoph. The two men jumped out of Hayes car both were armed several shots were fired and Hayes and Hotoph dropped their guns. Cates stood on lop of the seawall during he crossfire while Mike Harron and Beyer jumped into lira water. When the firing subsided Beyer jumped Back Over the seawall picked up Hayes Shotgun shoved in in his stomach and told Hayes to leave.
