Do fort Dodge a. Responding to widespread Public concern Over government Domestic spying and the increasing use of computers to keep tabs on individual citizens Congress passed the privacy act of 1974, which was signed into Law by president Ford on december 31. The Law deals almost exclusively with the activities of the Federal government and not private employers. Basically it guarantees the right of a citizen to see government files which mention his name and to permit a citizen to prevent such information from being used for another purpose without his consent. Personnel re cords of Federal employees Are included in the Law but not those of private employees. The greatest problem involved in making this new Law meaningful is providing a mechanism for the individual to find out exactly where such information might be found within the vast Federal bureaucracy.

Deeds filed in Sioux county your Faith & mine by Tom Westfall Challenge Fairview Peak dominates the area where our summer Cabin is located. A famous landmark of the Region its Bald head juts 13,216 feet into the Clear Blue sky of Colorado. Visible on the very top is a Small dark spot which i had been told was a fire watcher s station abandoned Many years ago. Through my Field glasses i could Dis Cern it was a Small building. Various residents of the area told me different stories about the building and its construction. Some said it was made of Brick. Others who claimed they had climbed the Peak vowed it was constructed of Wood. Still others declared it was made of Stone. For nine summer vacations i sat on the front porch of my Cabin and wondered. Year by year i refused the Challenge. The Peak looked grim and foreboding As it glared out above a wooly Muffler of dirty White Clouds. So for nine years i sat and watched it. But finally this year i could resist the Challenge no longer. I had to find out what that building was made of so i climbed Fairview Peak. It was one of the most thrilling experiences of my mature life and not nearly As hard As i had anticipated. From the Summit it seemed i could View the whole world. But even better now when i sit on my front porch and see that speck on Fairview s Bald Pate i know it is a Little Stone Shack. I wish i had made the climb years ago. No doubt by now i would have repeated it Many times. If i had accepted the Challenge earlier i could have been enriched by just that much. But As so Many peo pie Are i was too cautious with my life. I preferred to be an Idle Spectator instead of entering into a challenging but exciting experience. Now that Fairview is behind me i m looking Forward to More and better challenges. I like the feel of the Mountain top. To the pen is mightier than the Bill when you use our wide awake checking account. You just write off each payment.
