Page 2 WELLSVILLE DAILY REPORTER. WELLSVILLE. NEW YORK Tuesday. August 31. 1976 Flood work continues on Genesee near village The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, in an attempt to "modify" its flood control measures constructed in 1957, is currently installing river bank protection and a water velocity reducing structure in the Genesee River south of Wellsville. Part of the $820,000 project also includes stream bed cleaning of Dyke Creek between S. Broad St. and Miller Place. The major effort of the project, according to Hank Walters, construction representative for the corps, is to construct a drop structure to reduce the velocity of the river water through Wellsville This will also help to reduce river bank erosion which will also be checked by compacted gravel and fill, he added. Mr. Walters also said the drop structure will be much the same as the structure on Miller Place only larger. It will be constructed of slabs of concrete and will allow the water level to drop three feet in a 115-foot long section of the river. Immediately downstream of the construction site, the river bed has been leveled so that the wa*er will flow more slowly while upstream a three-foot deep pond is expected to back up about 800 feet because of the drop structure. Construction is expected to be finished Nov. 17 but before that happens, crews will erect a small levee on the west bank of the river on the old Wellsville- Addison-Galeton Railroad bed to protect the low-lying areas previously inundated by Hurricane Agnes in 1972. The levee will stretch from just behind the Otis Eastern Service Inc. property to about 800 feet south. According to Joseph Kurek, engineer in charge of the project, the high waters caused by Agnes "totally cleaned out the river bottom obstacles increasing the velocity of the river." "New computations were then made based on new information," Mr. Kurek continued, "and this work is a result." K mart store opens Sept. 9 ^.•<«I^U"^<^ & ^i^^'Sfei: ;^ •-£•"'- 5 Sf f %W$ ' : vvS? The 53,000 square-foot K mart discount department store on Bolivar Road in Wellsville will open to the public at 10 a.m. Sept. 9, according to the manager, Donald E. Story. The Wellsville K mart will bring the number of K marts in New York to 21 as the Kresge Company, operator of K marts, continues its expansion of its K mart chain in the state. On Sept. 9, K marts will also make their debuts in Waterville, Me.; Wind- Story to head local store The K mart division of the S. S. Kresge Company has named Donald E. Story general manager of the 53,500 square-foot K mart discount department store on Bolivar Road in Wellsville. After attending Tennessee Temple College, Mr. Story joined the Kresge management-training program in 1966 in Champaign, 111. He was promoted to the management of his first store in 1973 — a Jupiter limited -line discount store in Kenosha, Wis. Mr. Story then managed two Kresge variety stores in Harrisburg, 111., and St. Louis, Mo. Early this year, he transferred to the K mart division of the company as co-manager of the K mart in Kansas City, Kans. Mr. Story reports to Wellsville from his Kansas City assignement. Discussing K mart's entry into Wellsville, Mr. Story said: "Kresge's decision to enter Wellsville with one of its K marts was based on,, factual research that the ratio of sales to the population was below average. "It is expected that K mart will complement existing retail outlets providing Wellsville consumers with adequate shopping facilities to satisfy all their everyday needs, thus eliminating any necessity to travel out of the Wellsville area for general merchandise items. The increased traffic should benefit all the retailers in Wellsville." The Wellsville K mart will be under the supervision of Arthur E. Riley, vice president of Kresge's Eastern Region headquartered in E. Brunswick, N.J. DONALD E. STORY sor, Conn.; Great Harrington, Mass.; Union City, Tenn.; Santa Fe, N.M.; Bolingbrook and Lansing, 111.; and Belle Vernon, Waynesboro and Pittsburgh, Pa., for a total of 1,116 K marts in the United States, Puerto Rico, Canada and Australia. Kresge expects to open more than 200 K marts in 1976. Wellsville officials and top executives of the Kresge Company will take part in a brief ribbon-cutting ceremony at the main doors of the department store immediately before opening. Police have been asked to give special attention to the traffic on the streets surrounding the store during the first few hours of opening. This is for the safety of the motorists driving by. The new K mart, selling nationally advertised products, will be a discount department store in its pricing policies. Following are highlights of the merchandise the department store will carry: appliances; building tools; floor coverings; draperies, yard goods and sewing materials; women's fashions; men's, boys', girls', and infants' clothing; bedding; jewelry; camera supplies; books and records; pet supplies, and health and beauty aids. The K mart will have a complete automotive center with an auto music section featuring stereo tape players and tapes. The store will also feature a sporting goods department. More than 60 Wellsville area residents will be given full employment when the new K mart opens. Additional personnel will be hired parttime during holiday seasons. The first K mart opened in a suburb of Detroit in 1962. UPSTREAM-Construction crews are hard at work of Wellsville.

County State's Attorney Bernard Carey, who filed suit Monday, said much of the airlines' security against terrorist attacks at the nation's busiest airport is left to untrained high school students who run weapons-detecting devices. Carey said the airlines were in violation of state law by employing nonlicensed personnel. He said O'Hare is the only major airport in the United States which hires persons from an ushering service to operate weapon-detecting devices.
