It has three maximum security cells and one run-around. According to members of the sheriff's department, "It isn't what we need, but it's what we've got." Its 1906 construction was great in 1906, "but it doesn't have the facilities for modern times." No way around it, we need a new jail. Three Colorado kids 17-18 years old, ended up in the Donley jail a week or two ago and were transferred to the Potter County jail very quickly. One reason is that the three cells were full (they still are, by the way) so these three youths were kept in the runaround. The main r¢son,'owever, is that, these three kids, while occupying the jalt,'managed to do $200 wffxth of damage to the facilities. They broke out the storm windows which had been installed in June. They tore up the mattresses, and stuffed the bits and pieces of mattress into the plumbing, creating a small flood upon the jail floor. Donley County's jail failed to pass the state regulations regarding jails, but is in a big company, since only two jails in the state did pass. Therefore, Donley County's jail is good only for overnight or holding less than 72 hours. Ideas are being passed around to close county jails and establish regional jails, but that would be expensive on the counties that would have to pay transportation, plus room and board. In fact, there is a suit hanging around somewhere that would force the regional jail idea. However, there is only one obstacle to Donley County's obtaining a new jail. Since Donley does not keep enough prisoners to warrant federal help, the county would have to cough up the estimated $200,000 for a jail that would meet the state standards. Could this county take a bond issue for $200,000, or for that matter, would it? We have to decide if we should be satisfied with a jail that does the job, if barely, and is somewhat vulnerable to destruction, or if we should spend $200,000 for a jail that will hold precious few prisoners during the year. One area town built a new jail a few years ago, but it didn't pass the state regulations either. If we build a new jail, we will have to go whole hog about it. So, folks, there it is. What do you think? Dr. Fred Howard, professor and head of the department religion at Wayland Baptist College, will be the guest November 20, 1973 at the Baptist Student Union.

The public is A couple of weeks back, something appeared in this column about an office feud between Helen Woody and Sally Hester. Well, Helen sent a copy of the column to the Anson Western Observer. and darned if the manager wasn't one of Helen's old school chums, and a long-lost one at that. I'll give myself the Good Samaritan Award for that one. While covering the basketball game Monday night, 1 managed to show my usual clear-headedness by not taking stats for the first quarter. I was about to panic when I noticed the team manager sitting beside me working like a demon on a slat sheet, and thanks to him I was able to get the rebounds, shots, goals and such like that. Somebody knew what was going on, at least. Speaking of the basketball team, if you gotta start the season ........... some way, that's the way to do it! With calls coming from all corners of the globe for you and me (John Q. Public, in other words) to conserve energy, it is time for us to look deep into our souls and bring forth the patriot to cut down on fuel consumption. Since many of us have no choice but to cut fuel consumption, it is nice to do it voluntarily. I have, for the past week, been obeying the speed limits, which is as much as I can bring myself to cut at the momenf Once or twice, I have actually held my car to 50 miles an hour. and in a perverse sort of way it's fun, since so few other people are doing it. Doing 50 also gives one a since of wellbeing, knowing that he is the only orderly person in the world. There are only two things that can disrupt this well-being, the first of which is someone riding your bumper with his brights on who doesn't want to pass you but wants you to go 20 miles an hour faster. The other thing that can make 50 miles a hassle is knowing that you have a basketball story to write, and miles to go before you sleep, and miles to go before you sleep. I have also been exceedingly patriotic in keeping my house temperatures down, not necessarily due to patriotism but to the fact that I never can accurately gauge how cold it will get at night. And at 7 a.m. comes the moment of split second decision when you throw back the covers, roll out of bed and roll right back into bed after finding out that it's cold out there. Of course, that's also when you decide that, come deadline or no deadline, you are not leaving that bed until it warms up. On the matter of the lights staying off, I'll admit that I'm a downright traitor to the cause of fuel consumption. Living alone, PHONE 874-3641 with your locals. you hear noises all over the place, especially in rooms that are dark and that the light switch is in the middle of the room. Even if it invariably turns out that the noise is something totally natural and explainable, or at least is something out in the alley about to crawl in somebody else's window, you never really get • Your switch.USedt°blunderingar°undinadarkrooml°°kingf°ralight electric dryer My patriotism positively grows by leaps and bounds, however, h d at thethoughtofcuttingdownonofficehours. Unfortunately, works ..ar there are just some things that cannot go, and midnight oil, although in short supply, does need to be used at times, f0ry0 And there are probably any number of school kids who would 11,,. jump for joy at the thought of cutting school hours. More than a few teachers might not mind, either. Parents who have a bunch of kids in school might not get too thrilled over it, though. -TAKE A MOMENT : TO CLEAN iTS FiLTEI] ! i !!'i:i !!i!iiii*!iiiii!,:iiiii!'!::i!: i,)i!il :iFl'he Clarendon Kiwanisi00 ; ' ready for the next load.
