No objections to where the housing commission planned to put it or to the building itself were Ever raised during that Long hot debate Over whether an elderly project ought to be built but now critics of the site and. Building Are coming out of the Woodwork. Its a Little late for that sort of thing now that the Developer has bought the land for $45,000 and paid Many thousands More for architects plans for a building suited to that site. And yet some tried to use the zoning boards Power to halt the project there makes you wonder where these people were when the real debate was going on. We said no objections had been raised to the site before but we should Point out mayor Lewis while not really objecting did think it would be better Over behind the Post office but he backed off from this when most of the elderly people he talked to said they did no to want to be near the noisy traffic on Broadway. The two zones Doc Decker and Bill Brown who voted against granting the variances the project needed did no to do so because they were against elderly housing they just Felt the Board would be violating its jurisdiction As out lined in the zoning ordinance.

Housings scarce in South Haven let alone cheap rentals Amu lines we mentioned last week that firemen in Van Buren county wanted no part of running an ambulance service if the sheriffs department gave up the task Well we be got to clarify that some. A fellow in the Covert fire department called and pointed out the voters Down there were in favor of an ambulance service in a recent election and that the fire department would provide it beginning in november or december when it receives its ambulance. A a we based our comment last week on the fact the county firemen a association rejected the ideas but the Govert fireman said his end so Day will then be set department argued life hours against that Resolution and then cast its vote against it. According to information reaching us South Haven fire chief Les Olmstead abstained from voting on the Resolution so we can to really say All the firemen in the county Are against providing ambulance service just most another lady called us and told us about an All Volunteer fire department in Ohio where a relative lives which sponsored an ice Cream social to finance running an ambulance which shows it can he done if you want to do it. People Are still spying if we can afford a Marina and things like that in this City we can certainly afford an ambulance service.

She be convinced and Hung up Rajher madly. But then she called the next Day and said i apparently was right after All because people had actually been calling her to find out what her songs ticket was All about even before a Story about it appeared in the paper. To borrow a quip that appeared in a local stores and this week a if people done to know the trouble you be seen you done to live in a Small town wed Point out that its far better for folks to learn what you a done via the newspaper which tries to he accurate than from the grape Vine which never seems to get the whole Story.
