High Point Enterprise (Newspaper) - January 13, 1972, High Point, North Carolina Abstentions Are now with abstentions ruled out councilmen must be Clear by Forrest Cates Enterprise staff writer High Point City councilmen will have to be More positive in staking themselves out on Touchy issues As the result of new state Law which went into effect Jan. I. Councilmen can no longer abstain in votes and not be counted if they abstain the abstention will count As a a a yes vote on the Issue. Other changes in municipal government procedures Are required by amendments to state Law adopted by the 1971 general Assembly to become effective Jan. I. I972. City attorney Knox Walker is of the opinion that All of the City a zoning planning and subdivision control ordinances will have to be re enacted to comply with the state Law. A i done to think it was the intention of the Assembly for the cities to have to do this i think it was the intention for the cities to be allowed to keep their regulations the Way they were if that is what they wanted. But the language of statute makes it Wise for cities to re enact their ordinances to be on the Safe Side a Walker said. The main effect of the revised state Law on City councilmen is a provision declaring that All City elections for mayor and councilmen will be held in november. High Point now elects its mayor and eight councilmen in May elections every two years. The move to november Means that the present Council. Whose terms were to expire in May. 1973. Will serve until the following november. An extra six months. The general Assembly made sweeping changes in statutes which provide the zoning and subdivision controls exercised by cities. Refore cities had authority to zone within a one mile radius of their Borders called extraterritorial areas. The new Law extends the zoning and subdivision control arca to three Miles. High Point has for Many years zoned in the one mile area which lies within Guilford county but does not zone across the Davidson and Forsyth counties lines and zones in Randolph Only in areas which have been annexed. Tie City s authority to zone across the county lines has been challenged by Davidson. Walker believes that High Point could zone in the counties under provisions of the state Law. Tile revised statute also potentially changes Trie status of the so called extraterritorial members of the High Point planning and zoning commission before being revised the Law provided that the outside areas be represented on City planning boards. On the local Board there Are five regular members and five extraterritorial members. The revised statute allows cities to make the decision of whether they want outside representatives on their planning commissions. The general Assembly has Given municipalities until july i to bring their ordinances into compliance with the revised statute reforms in the state Abc Law enacted by the Assembly however present High Point officials with a More immediate task. The Law limits the Power of cities to prohibit Sale of Beer on sundays within the corp Ltd rate limits. City ordinances can Only ban sales b y establishments which do not have Brown bagging permits. The state Law permits places with Brown bagging License to sell Beer on sunday. Walker has advised councilmen that if they want to keep the curbs on those who do not have the licenses Thev must repeal the old ordinance and and it a new one. Councilmen Are mulling the Issue now. H i fall Market i n plan nixed Foj t u g in Chicago Art Buchwald a making life miserable Washington a in the super secret documents that columnist Jack Anderson released it was revealed that both president Nixon and Henry Kissinger supported Pakistan much More strongly than the country was led to believe and also were far More hostile toward India than anyone had reason to assume. The transcript of one of the High level meetings held at the White House during the crisis shows that Kissinger took a very Tough stand toward India. Part of the minutes read a Cdr. Kissinger also directed that henceforth we show a certain coolness to the indians the Indian ambassador is not to be treated at too High a now while this sounds Petty when you read it in cold print it is obvious to everyone that the most powerful nation in the world must show its displeasure when it believes another country has let it Down. One of the was this is accomplished is to punish the ambassador As or. Kissinger recommended. Rut How is this done0 deep in the bowels of the state department there is a Bureau whose sole function is to make life miserable for the embassy of a country that the United states is feuding with. It is known As the anti protocol office and it is at present headed up by Horace Ritterman a former guard at Attica prison. I talked to or. Ritterman the other Day and while he refused to confirm or deny that the screws had been put to the Indian ambassador he did Tell me How the anti protocol office operates. A when we get alerted by the White House that the president wishes to show a certain coolness to a country we go immediately into action. The first thing we do is notify the sanitation department not to pick up the embassy a garbage. Then we Send out a Fleet of used cars to Block the embassy a driveway. A we also begin digging a subway station in front of the ambassadors residence with our workers starting to Drill at 5 of clock in the morning. This serves two purposes. It prevents the ambassador from getting any sleep and the dug up Street makes it impossible for him to hold Ain diplomatic receptions because people have nowhere to a a that a pretty i said. A what do you do when someone in the White House says that an ambassador is not to be treated at too High a level a a the first thing we do is notify All the restaurants in town that if the ambassador reserves a table he is to be seated next to the Kitchen door. A then we Send out word to the town s caterer that when the ambassador holds a party he must be provided with three Day old hours do oeuvre. A we also telex All Washington hostesses to say that of he is invited to a dinner party the president wishes him to be seated a below the a when the ambassador requests to see the Secretary of state he is Given an audience with a code clerk trainee. We Tow his car away while he a in the build a to ing. A you people done to fool i said. A we done to set policy Here. We Only follow orders a or. Ritterman said. A what if the ambassador gets angry and goes Back to his own country in a Huff a said Ritterman with a smile a we notify the airlines and they arrange to lose his copyright 1972, los Angeles times Kitchen damaged by grease fire the Kitchen of the Robert Mcdonald Home at 1403 Foust St. Was damaged by fire wednesday about 4 18 .
