"They're not really a thing of beauty," said Mayor Hartvig Forberg. 'They have grown up over some cheap fences around the ponds and they're so dense that very little can get through except for small children." wire However, several of Lynnview's citizens expressed displeasure at a Forberg said that in the past the rose bushes have proven to be a fire hazard. He noted there were a couple of small fires last summer. "There are between 20 and 30 houses that border one of the ponds so it could be a serious threat," he said. "Sometimes small children who get through the bushes have matches. If we didn't have the bushes, we EiaFem Shows.

DAVID KAREM Baptist Women Visit Prisoners Okolona Jaycees Will Discuss Busing BY CHARLES SPRINGER Forced busing will be the topic under consideration as the Okolona Jaycees gather for a meeting at 7:30 p.m., Thursday, Feb. 28 at the Knights of Columbus building on Trio Lane. Mrs. Joyce Spond, president of' Save Our Community Schools, Inc. (SOCS), will be one of the speakers. Her group is currently behind a move in the Senate to get a bill passed calling for a constitutional convention to consider the busing issue. The House of Representatives recently passed opposition to a any deleted resolution expressing forced busing, but mention of a constitutional convention. Also Fathers Mike Silliman, president of the Okolona Jaycees, said the club is also trying to line up a speaker from the Civil Liberties Union Kentucky (KCLU) so "that our members will be able to hear both sides of the issue." Silliman noted that most of the Jaycees are also fathers and arc concerned about the issue. "We like to give our membership an A group of about 20 members from Bethlehem Baptist Church on Preston Highway gave a Valentine Party for inmates at the Women's Correctional Institute at Peewee Valley last Saturday. The trip was sponsored by the Baptist Young Women of the church. Mrs. Barbara Champlin, a member of the group, explained that the church visits the prison once each year, in addition to providing clothing for the inmates. , "We just want the ladies to know that we do care for them," said Mrs. Champlin. "They usually respond very well and really join in the fun." "Dance: A Creative Approach" is the title of a new course being offered by the Bellarmine College Division of Continuing Education. To be held on Monday nights from 5:30-- 7 p.m., the course begins on March 4 for six V V Lynnview Community Center.

"Nobody likes busing, but we don't like the idea of calling a convention cither." Silliman said that his club probably would not take a stand on the issue. "This is more for the information of the members," he explained. "As individuals, wc couldn't really take a stand unless we're informed about the issue. "lt will probably be a hot meeting, but then busing is a hot subject. If you're given the facts, you can make a wiser decision." Mm THAT'S RIGHT FtlGG CHECKING! o NO MINIMUM BALANCE o NO MONTHLY At Bellarmine r ' I A Breeding Place He added that he didn't think Lynnview would have any problem getting the funds approved for allevitating the situation. Adding to Lynnview's woes is the fact that the ponds and rose bushes appear to be breeding places for mosquitoes. "If we can get rid of the roses, we may cut down on the mosquitoes," Forberg said. The residents also expressed interest in improving their facilities to handle storm-wate- r drainage of Preston Drive. "During big storms the water just pours onto Preston Drive and has gotten into some houses," Forberg said. "We really don't know what is causing the problem." Forberg noted that these problems and a review of the city's financial records will be discussed at the next meeting of the Lynnview City Council, scheduled for Monday, March 4 at Dance Classes To Be Offered - ' i wouldn't have the problem. The community meeting was called to discuss how the city would spend its approximately SI 5,000 in federal revenue-sharin- g funds. "Some of the residents want to put new fences around the ponds," he said, "It may take all of the money we have allocated to take down the roses and put up new fences." Forberg said that one of the ponds is already surrounded by a chain-linfence which was installed in 1953. "One of our problems may be to get all of the property-owner- s to agree on our approach to the problem," Forberg admitted. 7:30 Worship Service For the party, the women took along candy, cookies and punch. They also put on skits, and provided a worship service. "It makes me feel 100 per cent better after visiting them," said Mrs. Champlin. "It gives me the feeling that the Lord is leading us on a mission to tell other people about Him." Reverend Ralph W. Hodge, pastor of Bethlehem Baptist, said that the church has definite purpose in mind for the visits. "We want to show them that the church is open and responsive to their needs," he said. "Although they are shut off from us, we are not shutting ourselves off from them. "We always get a warm feeling after visiting with the inmates. I think they really appreciate our efforts." -- f k To Abortion Resolution BY MARY MUSICK 1974-- A7 SERVICE CHARGE o NO CHARGE FOR CHECKS OPEN YOUR FREE CHECKING ACCOUNT TODAYI sessions.
