Beet, Potato Harvesting Dealt 4th Snowy Setback Written by Horaci Gretley in 1871 A N D THE GREELEY REPUBLICAN VOL. «--NUMBER 2 GREELEY, COLORADO WEDNESDAY, OCT. VI, Via WEEKLY TRIBUNE ESTABLISHED 1870 Love Sees Spending Hike Of $70 Million in 1970 Wayne A. Sodman Wayne A. Sodman, one of the three council candidates in Ward One, is an employe in the beef processing department and chief union steward at Monfort Packing Co. His statement follows: "In my opening campaign statement, I promised thai I would listen to the people of Ward One in north Greclcy and then, if elected, I would do my best to carry out their wishes. "I also pointed out thai no purpose could be served- by attacking present or past members of City Council.-- or my worthy opponents in this election. "In addition, I vowed that my approach would be constructive; that I would try to view Greeley's problems as problems that can and must be solved -- starting right now, and not in some long distant future. "Finally I also stated that Greeley is the city my wife, Anne, and I have chosen to raise our four children, a city that we have called home for 10 years, a city that we want to be a better place -- not a little worse, but a little better -for our children and their children than it is for us. Change in Philosophy "Since making that opening (Continued on page 19) Andrew Gurtner Andrew Gurtner, east Greeley businessman and longtime resident of the city, said in regard to his candidacy for Ward One councilman: "My contention is that too often City Council positions are filled without regard to qualifications. I feel I qualify to fill the post of Ward One councilman for the following reasons: "Thirty years business experience in Greeley. "Six years service on the City Planning Commission. "Recently reappointed to a five-year term on the Weld County Board of Health. "Presently a member of the City Civil Service Commission. Sewage Plant Odor "I am acquainted with the present needs of our city. Too often needs are known but no action js taken, or at best delayed. "The odor from our sewage plant and other facilities has given Greeley a most unfavorable reputation. Through my efforts as a the Weld County Board of Health, I am fully aware of what needs to be done to help correct the situation at Ihe sewage plant. "This can be accomplished with the present facilities if they are put in working operation (Continued on page 19) Mrs. Uba Stanley Mrs. Uba Stanley, accountant and executive secretary for the Stanley Commercial Radio Co. here for the past 11 years, is a candidate for the Ward One council post. In her statement, she said: "It is my belief lhat one of the biggest problems in Greeley is to have a city government :hat is responsive to the interests of all Greeley citizens. "The public needs to be more informed on the problems caused by rapid growth. The citizens will have to take more interest in their city government or be willing to live with what is 'dished' out to them. "Past zoning practices need to be scrutinized and changes made. Property owners need adequate protection and new zoning of unzoned areas should follow a master plan for growth. Dump, Sewage Problems "Such a plan, of course, needs to be updated as growth patterns change the overall picture. The lack of communication between the council and the planning commission should be corrected. "The council needs to take a second look at (lie 'dump' prob- (Continued on page 19) By GORDON G. GAUSS Associated Press Writer DENVER (AP) - Colorado's state spending will increase by around $70 million next year, Gov. John Love says, but a tax increase can be escaped. The governor's disclosure, which referred directly to the state's general fund budget, came at a news conference Tuesday afternoon. It would mean a total spending from the general fund of around §408 million for the fiscal .year beginning next July and total stale spending approaching $900 million during the 12-month period. Includes Cash The $900 million figure would include money spent from cash funds such as the motor fuel tax, game and fish licenses and college tuition, and also would include all money received from he federal government. The governor is beginning jreparation of the recommenda- .ions he will make to the legisla- .ure in January on spending.

COLO. FIVE-DAY FORECAST Thursday through Monday responsive to the desires of the people. The Ihrcc, Can-ell Deacon, Gil llause and Joseph E. Poerl- ner, voiced their views at a Ward 11 campaign meeting sponsored by the Citizens Coali- lion at Our Savior's Lutheran Church. Only about 25 persons attended, one of whom was Mayor Dorothy Zabka. Quite a few of the persons present were individuals who have become persistent critics of the present council because of past clashes over zoning, the sales lax and financing of the City Complex. The candidates were first asked by Jack Priddy, who presided, a series of questions the Citizens Coalition has been asking at the candidate meetings it has been sponsoring. Liquor Question All three agreed in answering the first question regarding their stand on the proposal to repeal Ihe prohibition against the sale of liquor in Greeley, lhat this was a matler that would be decided on a personal basis by eacli voter. Poertner said he was going to vote against the proposal, llause said he favored bringing liquor inlp Greeley "since il is already right on our doorstep." Deacon answered he fell the proposal had to pass if Greeley is lo grow. The second question concerned the candidates' stand on the proposed amendment lo the Cily Charter to provide for an election nn retaining the cily manager. Deacon answered that, although he was for the proposal, "yet I'm sorry to see it on the ballot. I think it's more a reflection on the council than the city manager. I think il shows the people are telling the council they want it lo run the city and not the manager." Hause said he was against Ihe proposal. "I feel, when a council is elected by the people, Ihe cily manager should be responsible lo Ihe council." He added, however, he believed il was Ihe council's responsibility lo see thai Ihe Ihings being done by the city are the tilings the people want done. October's Third Storm Pelts State By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The third snowstorm this month pelted Colorado today, triggering heavy snow warnings for the mountains and Eastern Slope of the Continental Divide Up to six inches of snow was expected in many areas of the slate, with accumulations of up to five inches predicted for the heavily populated metropolitan Denver area. Snowpacked roads and hazardous driving conditions were reported in the mountain passes, with roads in almost all areas either icy or snowpacked 01 wet. A frontal system moving across the central Rocky Mountains was blamed for the icy rain that soon turned to snow. The scattered snow and icy drizzle was expected to continue tonight, with some relief in sight Thursday. Below freezing temperatures were predicted for tonight, adding to the likelihood of more hazardous driving. At Colorado Springs, Ihe Rocky Mounlain Kennel Club called off ils dog racing card for toniglil because of snow. Snowpacked or icy highways were reported in all areas of Colorado except near Salida, where roads were dry shortly jefore noon. The Colorado Stale Patrol advised against travel over Independence and Douglas passes. During the first two weeks of Dclober, heavy snows caused .housands of dollars in property Poertner said he didn't seeldamage and played havoc with (Continued on Page 6) [crops in Colorado. The legislature's Joint Budget; Committee will open hearings on appropriations requests next Monday. Eventually, the legis- alure will have to vote whatever money is to be spent. Love said he was not far enough along, to have specific 'igures on his: recommendations but said there will be "quite a substantial increase this time," due in part to provisions writ- en into the 1969-70 budget adopted last spring. Pressed by reporters, the governor came up with a "guess" of an increase "in the neighborhood" of .$70 million in the general fund budget. Referring to-built-in increases, le noted the $47 million boost in state aid to · schools effective next Jan. 1 was funded for only lalf a year in the budget for 1969-70 and said the same ap jlied to state i takeover of most court costs. He said there also will be an increase in the medi caid program--under which the stale furnishes medical care 'or welfare recipienls. Also, the governor noted, school aid will increase by another $20 per pupil annually on Jan. 1, 1971, and half of that increase must be funded in the 1970-71 budget. There are aboul half a million pupils in public schools in Colorado. Joe Kyle, staff director for the legislative budget committee later estimated the courl costs will jump from about $6 million the current budget to abou $14 million in Ihe nexl budget He ss'd the slate is now paying about $21 million of its own funds, plus $27 million of fed eral funds, for medical aid pro grams. How much the increase will be is uncertain, he said, de pending upon how fast costs rise and what new programs are added.
