Martin Luther King Jr. as the slain civil rights leader was remembered in ceremonies marking the anniversary' of his birth. The memory of King “should serve not just as an inspiration to black Americans, but to each and every one of us, to stand firm for our principles and to strive to better ourselves and our country," President Reagan said Thursday in a television address made available to schools nationwide. “During his short life span he touched the lives of every American and helped dismantle the legal vestiges of discrimination and racism," Reagan said.

The move, the first phase in a project to relocate 17 households, was timed to coincide with King's birthday. “This is the best way to demonstrate our love and respect for his dream." said lawyer Rose Sanders. In the nation's capital, a wreath was laid on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, where King delivered his famous “I have a dream" speech in 1963. U.S. Education Secrtary William Bennett taught a class of Atlanta third-graders about King, and later addressed an assembly at the Martin Luther King Jr. Center for Nonviolent Social Change King “played a role in helping to topple Jim Crow. changed forever life in the South and profoundly altered the course of American history.” Bennett said King "taught us of the importance of peace, but also of the value of struggle He taught love, but also show ed how deep the hatred of others can at times become. He awoke this country to its greatest failing, while awakening it to its greatest promise." Obituaries Walter A. Dietz Services for Walter A. Dietz of 627 Lakeview, Apt. 103 will be at 2:30 p m.

You must have excess money to meet the demands and needs of the community in case of any unforeseen events,” the league official stated. Michie related that this Is the first time in recent history that the city has needed to dip into reserve funds to finish out a fiscal year's operating costs. “We are not going to be able to get through the current budget year without going into the fund,” he replied. “It's a roll of the dice, a judgement of a city's council. You just hope there are no bad circumstances that cause you to use your reserve monies," Willis added noting that amounts of contingency funds fluctuate from year to year. “Ideally you would like for it to remain the same every year, but it just doesn t work that way,” he said.
