Pharos-Tribune, Logansport, Indiana, Thursday, March 24, 1988 PageS Farm Show May Shut Schools ROCHESTER - Rochester schools may close during the Farm Progress Show next year. The possible closing of the corporation from Sept. 26 to 28 was discussed this week by the Rochester School Board. Superintendent Robert Poffenbarger said Wednesday that some decision will probably be reached in the next 30 days, but school officials want to meet first with officials at Caston and Tippecanoe Valley. The show is expected to attract some 75,000 to 150,000 people. James Barkman, the school corporation's transportation director, said he thought it would be impossible to run bus routes during the three-day event. In order to comply with the state-mandated 180-day school year, board members agreed that the days should be made up during Christmas vacation or spring break. Monday, the board heard a presentation from Doyle Baum of DMB Corporation, Elkhart, who explained new federal guidelines for asbestos inspec- tion of school buildings. Baum said state and federal regulations require school corporations to prepare and submit to the state by Oct. 12 an asbestos inspection, operations and maintenance manual. An asbestos containment program also must be implemented by July 9,1989. Baum was hired at $12,000 as the school corporation's asbestos inspector and planner. An additional $3,000 was approved for asbestos testing.

The agents testified Wednesday Hancock County Sheriff's Capt. Malcolm E. Grass ignored their advice. During the arrest, Grass was shot and killed, allegedly by one of the suspects, Marvin D. Castor, who says he didn't know Grass was a policeman. The two agents were among defense witnesses called Wednesday in the murder trial of Castor, who is trying to show he was afraid of hired killers when he shot Grass. Castor could face the electric chair if convicted. Grass was shot, when he and five FBI agents prepared to arrest Castor, 47, and his brother, Gerald D. Castor, 38, in an alleged $250,000 extortion scheme against the Castors' employer. Sugar Creek Resort Club. The shooting occurred May 8, 1986, at a service station north of Greenfield.

Bulmahn testified he had asked Grass to have marked sheriff's cars at the arrest scene. And Special Agent Charles W. Harvey also testified he talked to great D Bulmahn about marked police cars being in the area of the intended extortion payoff site. Bulmahn also testified he coached William A. Coilett Jr., manager of the Sugar Creek club near Greenfield, how to call Marvin Castor to arrange for the extortion payoff under police surveillance. The brothers had asked for $250,000 to remain silent about their allegations that hundreds of outdated club memberships were being used as fraudulent collateral for bank loans.
