Programs Keep Rural Youth Busy The past year was a good one for Carroll County 4-H and other extension youth programs, in spite of the loss of two programs, according to Bob Millender, extension 4-H and youth leader for Carroll and Calhoun Counties. The Conservation Field Days for 6th Graders was dropped in Carroll County because of the difficulty in getting instructors in various areas, Millender said. The Carroll County Extension Council decided to drop the traditional 4-H aid program during the summers of 1975 and 1976, because of the lack of county funds available, he added. The county had been paying 20 per cent of the salary and all expenses. The 1975 program was under the direction of the county 4-H committee, consisting of Hubert Hagemann Jr., chairman; Mrs. Amos Kusel, vice-chairman and Mrs. Robert Van Horn, secretary. Other members included Jim Baumhover, Ralph Bock Sr., Mrs. Kenneth Bromert, Franklin Mohr, Clair Snyder, Edgar Snyder and Mrs. Paul Venner. Ninety-five 4-H leaders assist with the program which is under the direction of the Extension Council with Robert Halbur, chairman. The special emphasis in 1975 was clothing for girls and animal science for boys. One of the highlights of the year was the election of Jim Halbur, a member of the Willey Rockets 4-H Club and chairman of the County 4-H Council, as vice-president of the state 4-H organization. This is the first time Carroll County has had a state 4-H officer in several years. Thirty-three members attended the Citizenship short course in Washington, D.C. during the first week in August.

The meter money is not used as a money-maker, according to state law. Rather, it is used as an incentive to keep persons from parking in a spot all day, thus reducing the number of parking spaces available for use close to stores for shoppers. Money from meter collections goes into a "parking meter fund" to be used to pay the city's two meter maids, buy new meters and repair old ones and develop off-street parking. Fines go into the Carroll general fund.
