Mr, and Mrs. Jack Robinson Lunch rights: Sept. 14-2T PLANNING From Page ! the Department of Agriculture revealed a direct conflict bet- ween their interpretations of the laws and that of Prosecuting Attorney Robert Skinner. According to the State Health Department, the county dog warden, sheriff or a con- servation officer is responsible for enforcing laws dealing with Jog taxes and rabies shots. The commission will. confer with Skinner later in an effort to clarify the situation. In other actions, the county commissioners approved the sewer facilities study recom- mendations outlined by the planning commission two weeks ago, and directed Ad- ministrator Ash to notify the engineering firm, Howard Needles Tammen and Bergendoff to proceed in this direction. Approved was the request of the County Health Department, asking the commission to un- derwrite the cost of hiring a second sanitarian to assist the present one, John Cooper. The commission directed that a diesel engine, located in the old underground bunker at Summit Point, be removed and utilized by the landfill subject to the approval of the Parks and Recreation Board. A request from Charles Town City Manager Robert Cain that landfill facilities be made available on holiday Monday s.. to accommodate businesses which are in operation .... was taken under advisement, with a suggestion that a way be found to alleviate the problem. Received was a racing commission check for $4380 for the period August 7 through 19. And the commission was reminded of a planning com- misssion meeting October 10 to consider the Wilk, w Dale and Floyd Chanel development. E. Painter, Mt. Mission; and Robert F. Painter, Point of Rocks, Md. Funeral services were held Wednesday morning from Murrill United Methodist Church. The Rev. Frank Ment: zer officiated, burial was in Pleasant View Memory Gar- dens. Pinball Suit Court Tuesday The Harpers Ferry pinball machine ban will be back in court Tuesday, September 19, when arguments aimed at testing the legality of a town ordinance will he heard. In late June, the Harpers Ferry town council passed an emergency ordinance banning pinball machines, juke boxes and pool tables. The action came after the council had approved a permit for the owners of the Peanut Gallery, a new shop, to have a pinball concession on the second floor of their store. The court action, which claimed the emergency or- dinance is, among other things, unconstitutional, was then filed for the James K. Hutzler Ven- ding Machine Company by Attorneys James Crawford and Thomas Steptoe Jr. Keith Adkinson, attorney for Harpers Ferry, has asked for dismissal of the suit, claiming that the mayor and council, as legal officers of the town, are immune from liability; and also contends that the Circuit Court has no jurisdiction over the two offices. Incidentally, the plaintiffs are asking the court for damages of $1000 a month for each month the ordinance remains in effect. Ferry Council Creates A HUD Advmory Group The Harpers Ferry Town Council, meeting Monday evening in monthly session, adopted a citizens participation plan for a $400,000 grant ex- pected this Fall from the Department of Housing Urban Development. Under the plan, a five-person advisory committee will be selected. It will oversee the utilization of the HUD funds, which is expected to be used in the rehabilitation of low cost housing and the building and repair of streets and sidewalks. i i WORLD BOOK-CHILDCRAFT, INT.
