Boat ramp work, downtown park get council OK Wars Wis Nevv visitors are welcome Even while in the hospital with a broken arm, Andre Hardville, 10, gets to hear about his sister Yulonda's adventures. Their visit at St. Mary's Medical Center is authorized under a new policy allowing sibling visitation in the pediatrics ward. Children can visit the hospital's medical and surgical patients during normal visiting lournal Times photo by Paul Roberts hours, but on the pediatrics floor, only siblings are allowed and only if both the patient and visitor are over the age of two.

Andre and Yulonda, 11, live at 239 Harrison St. Everybody may have to pay to use Sturtevant building By Marcia Watkins of the Journal Times All groups using the Sturtevant Village Hall will have to pay a users fee if Village President Abe Kirkorian has his way. Some groups pay for using the hall and others don't, Kirkorian said Tuesday night at a village board meeting. He said a more universal rental policy for the hall would probably be included in the village's 1983 budget. As it stands now, nonprofit groups from the village and village residents do not have to pay rent for meetings in the hall at 2744 Wisconsin St. Profit-making organizations and groups which invite the general public must pay a $15 monthly fee for meetings, said Barbar Pauls, village clerk. '!....!-. .. . People who use the hall for wedding, anniversa ry or other parties are charged $75 on weekends and $50 on weekdays, Pauls said. In a related matter, the board refused to consider a request from the Sturtevant VFW to allow the group to expand and remodel the village hall for its exclusive use. Gordon Peterson, a VFW representative, told the board the VFW would return the hall to the village if the veterans group disbanded. "We're not about to give up the village hall to anyone," Kirkorian told Peterson. "If it isn't big enough the way it is, that's too bad. I'm getting tired of people trying to take over the village hall." In other business, the board approved paying $1,206 to Lang Engineers Co. inc. of Rochester for resurfacing the tennis court at North Park. Town hires secretary In, a special meeting Monday, the Caldeonia Town Board hired Janice Simonsen, 47, as a secretary to replace Kathy Peel. Peel resigned effective Aug. 20 to take a job in Virginia Simonsen, of 3710 5 Mile Road, started part-time Tuesday afternoon, said Emmajane Lee, town clerk. Simonsen will start full-time Aug. 30, Lee said, at an hourly salary of $5.50. Park yearbooks arrive Park High School yearbooks can be picked up by students who ordered them in the school's cafeteria between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. Thursday. By Lori Bergslrom of tho Journal Timet City Council members Tuesday took two more steps toward revitali-zation of Downtown Racine. They approved development work at the small mid-block parking lot in the 300 block of Main Street and authorized funds for engineering an expansion of the 5th Street boat launching ramp. The parking lot project involves landscaping, lighting, installation of benches and a stage area. Some parking space would be retained in the project proposed by the Old Main Association, a group of downtown merchants. Estimated cost of the work is $20,000. The council proceeded with plans to double the size of the 5th Street boat ramp, approving $12,000 for hiring of a consulting engineering to design six additional ramps. Expansion was proposed by a special study committee named to seek ways of providing more boat access to Lake Michigan. The project, estimated to cost $211,000, is targeted for completion by next spring in time for the 1983 Salmon-A-Rama. The council also agreed to spend $2,500 for an appraisal of a 6.1-mile railroad right of way abandoned by the Milwaukee Road. The Milwaukee Road recently received approval from the Interstate Commerce Commission to discontinue service on its tracks from Willow Road to the end of the line at the lakeshore. Lloyd Miller, the city's secretary of economic development, said the Milwaukee Road will share cost of the appraisal. Miller said the property is being appraised because it is property the city "... may like to own." In addition, some industries also may be interested in acquiring adjacent property for development, he said, and "we want to work with industry." "If the council decides whether to proceed with the purchase, industry will be contacted to see if it wants to participate," he said. In addition, the part of the right of way from Stannard and Water streets to the mouth of the Root River is an important part of Racine's river and harbor management plan, Miller has said. In the plan, which hasn't been formally adopted, the line is envisioned as a public pathway along the river. In other action, council members: Gave final approval to a schedule of bus fare increases proposed by the city's transit and parking commission. Effective Oct. 1, single ride fares will be 35 cents, up by 10 cents; and the fare for elderly and handicapped riders will be up a nickle, to 15 cents. In addition, monthly passes will increase from $10 to $12. Approval also was given to several route and schedule changes which go into effect Oct. 1. Approved funds to pay eight seasonal employees to re-establish the city's weed-cutting program, abandoned earlier in cost-cutting efforts. Overgrown weeds became a problem after 32 jobs were cut from the Department of Public Works, Commissioner Fred Larson has said. Referred to three council committees a request by Jack Hess of 1916 Blaine Ave. to open a combina- , tion sporting goods store and shooting and archery range in the old A & P grocery store at 21st Street and Lathrop Avenue. Thomas Wright, director of city development, said the commutes may consider developing an ordinance relating to shooting ranges. Approved construction bids for two sewer projects. The contract for a sanitary sewer project in the Prospect Street area was let to Michels Pipeline Construction Inc.. of Milwaukee, on its bid of $2,067,051. Bidding winner on a sewer separation project on the city's near northside was . Gabe's Construction Co. Inc., of Sheboygan, on a bid of $3,160,479. Adopted a policy plan developed by planners from the city, county and Town of Mount Pleasant to help guide future land development in the area around Regency Mall. Two Wind Lake fires cause damage A tractor caught fire Tuesday afternoon, exploding and causing an estimated $15,000 worth of damage to a garage in Wind Lake. Patsy Deak, 28, of 6814 Johnson Court, told sheriff's deputies she was filling the tank of a tractor with gasoline in a garage at her home, when slie heard a hissing noise and saw the tractor catch fire. Deak told deputies she ran from the garage as the tractor exploded, singeing her hair and causing minor burns to the back of her neck. She didn't require hospital treatment. The fire caused heavy damage to pool equips ment and other items stored in the three-car garage, according to Deak's husband, Frank., Deak told deputies the tractor hadn't been used for several days and wasn't running when it caught fire. Deputies today also were investigating a fire of suspicious origin that caused an estimated $12,000 worth of damage Monday to another Wind Lake house. That fire destroyed a sofa and caused heavy smoke damage to an unoccupied house at 26941 Apple Road. The owner of the house, John A. Pintar, was in Gonzalez, La., when the fire was reported at 9:20 a.m. Monday by a Wisconsin Electric Power Co. : meter reader, according to deputies. Wind Lake firemen broke into the house and found that a sofa had burned to the floor, causing heavy smoke damage. A can of what appeared to be charcoal lighter fluid was found in the rubble of the sofa, reports said. Firemen said the house was tightly shut, and a lack of air may have prevented the fire from spreading Rugby club asks for Roosevelt Park The Racine-Kenosha Rugby Club, which played its spring series of game at Racine's Lincoln Field, has requested city permission to use Roosevelt Park for its fall series of rugby games. Gub members were censured by. the Racine City Council last year after they sponsored a game in September between a team fronv the Union of South Africa and a group of Midwestern rugby all-stars. The South African Springboks had been the object of demonstrations and protests because of the country's racial policies, and city officials charged that the Racine-Kenosha team exposed the city to possible disorder and insulted residents of the Roosevelt Park area, which has a large minority population. Racine Parks and Recreation Director Alan Domer Tuesday night said the Racine-Kenosha Club, though it has played its games at Lincoln Field, has been practicing regularly at Roosevelt Park "without incident." The club's request was referred to the city council's license and welfare committee and the Board of Parks and Recreation Commissioners.
