Variance- Continued From Page 1 supported Taylor's efforts to use the building for manufacturing. Taylor said the available parking at the building and a fenced-in area adjacent to the building will provide adequate parking for the facility and will not involve any on-street parking in Twelve Mile. He said some workers employed at the building will be walking to work and will not need a parking space. The Tay-Mor facility on Burlington Avenue is involved in the manufacture of wire assemblies. The board also granted a special exception variance for Verna Nulf, Rt. 5, for the addition of a second mobile home on a 40-acre site near Cass County Road 500E in Clay Township. A third request from the Pisgah Church Cemetery Association also was approved. Jim Campbell, a member of the church, appeared on behalf of the association. Campbell said 1.6 acres of farmland on the north and west sides of the church t 600W and SON will be used as an addition to the cemetery. Rick Maughmer, the board's attorney, said that work has begun on a fence around a lot used by Dennis Shively on 800E and Ind. 218 for the storage of old cars. Earlier this year, Shively and his mother, Doris Anderson, were ordered by Superior Court Judge Douglas Cox to either remove the vehicles from the property or erect a fence. Bayh- Continued From Page I steps in education, he would not have lengthened the school year and would have used more money "improving the quality of education." "I'm talking about improving the At-Risk program, expanding Prime Time, and developing the already existing math and science areas." On the topic of keeping industry in Indiana, Bayh said it was a question of getting back to fundamentals rather than bidding wars. "We in Indiana need to focus on attracting business to the state through good highways, a solid environmental program, and being more competitive," Bayh said. "This includes a long-term strategic plan for where we should be by the 21st Century." On the recent gasoline tax increase, Bayh said that although no one cares for higher prices, it was necessary to raise the tax for the benefit of state roads. "Our motto is the 'Crossroads of America,' and we can only take full advantage of that if our highways are in good condition," Bayh said. "A recent study indicates that 50 percent of our bridges are structurally substandard and our roads in a state of disrepair." When talking about cutting the budget in his own office, Bayh said it was something that needed doing a long time ago. "The people who have been in government for years and years forget that the money is coming out of your pockets," Bayh said. "I got rid of my private automobile, and the $20,000-a-year position for the person who was supposed to drive me around, along with cutting the monthly phone bill and the staff by 20 percent.'' And as far as his father is concerned, Bayh assured one student that he was not going to run for the race of governor in his father's shadow.
