An unpleasant bit of news for Many land owners in Putnam county is contained in a bulletin received by Mack Ooley spa supervisor for the Putnam and Parke area which is to effect that the spa will not continue to move Back fences for landowners along roads which Are to be Black topped with spa funds.

This ruling Means that unless the land owners not Only donate the land required for the 50 foot right of Way required for spa projects but also move their fences the roads will not be improved with spa funds.
