MiLady's MERLE NORMAN COSMETICS 642 NORTH 'H' STREET BUS: (805)736-5220 4 :'.! A suit filed in Superior Court in Santa Maria last week alleges Marvin and Patricia Roberts, owners of Post Time Farms, Inc. illegally used the name Flag is Up Farms at their horse ranch on Highway 246 between Buellton and Solvang in August. The suit, filed by Hastings Har-court, who died last week at the age of 73, asks that Flag is Up Farms be awarded $15,000 in general damages that the Robertas alleged use of the name "has :aused and continues to cause" to he reputation and well-being of he corporation. The suit also eks an award of $1,000 in mnitive damages by the court to he plaintiffs. Flag is Up Farms was formed in 1966 by Harcourt and was one of the "largest and best thoroughbred farms in California until it was dissolved in 1973," the suit contends. The right to use the firm's business name and trademark was allegedly retained by Harcourt. He formed a successor corporation under the same name earlier this year. The Robertses are assuming the Flag Is Up Farms name with "no contest" from the plaintiff, "hoping to create confusion in the public mind and mislead the public into thinking their business is identical to the plaintiffs," the suit alleges. -.j . - i it. - - Jfctf ,! . iv W.

"I never thought I'd see the day. I'm delighted to be here." These are the opening remarks of Mike Pahos, County Parks Director, who announced to Solvang Municipal Improvement District Directors last Thursday the plans for constructing a new restroom facility in Solvang Park. The new frame and stucco Danish-style structure, estimated at $55,000 will be located west of the existing facility which will be removed upon completion of the new building. Pahos' department has been working on the project for several years. The plans he showed the directors were dated 1975. "We have made a number of modifications, but the idea is the same." January construction foreseen There will be one more water closet in each compartment than in the existing restroom facility, tiled floorsv and wood 'framed screens. Bids will be requested before the end of November Pahos said. "It will take 30 days to get the bids, two weeks for bonding plus a week. With luck the project could begin before January 1," Pahos said. Maintenance responsibilities of the new facility was not discussed but SMID Secretary-Manager Leo Mathiasen said he would work closely with the Parks Department prior to and during the construction. "I have some suggestions to reduce maintenance and vandalism and even possibly costs," Mathiasen told Pahos and the directors. Ranger facility In HCA Park A park ranger facility, purchased by the Parks Department for approximately $20,000 will be placed in Hans Christian Andersen Park, this year, Pahos also announced. In a brief slide presentation he showed the directors where the metal mobile home unit would be placed. Pahos said a great deal of time and effort had been spent placing the unit to prevent nearby residents from having a spoiled view from their homes. The park entrance will not be visible from the unit, Pahos said, but with a Ranger in the park, gates will be closed and locked each night. Director Tom Nielsen requested Pahos have the area staked out for the board to vjew this week to which Pahos agreed. Pahos said the land preparation work may need private con- tributiOns ' including a possible $2500 from SMID. Taxes distributed Nearly $106 million was distributed this week to California cities, counties, and transit districts from the October allocation of sales and use taxes administered by the State Board of Equalization. Santa Barbara County received $262,500. An idling engine can use up to a pint of gas every five minutes. Price pleads not guilty Lewis Price pled not guilty Friday morning to charges he shot his co-worker at the remote Ogilvy Ranch Oct. 9, then shoved him head first into a flaming barbecue pit to destroy the body. Municipal Court Judge Joseph Lodge set the preliminary hearing for Dec. 1 at 9 a.m. in Judge Arnold Gowens' courtroom, and anticipated it would take about five days. The preliminary will determine if there's enough evidence to bind Price over for trial in superior court. Price, 23, of Santa Barbara, is being held without bail. He had a right to a speedier preliminary, but his attorney from the public defender's office, Jim Herman, needed more time to prepare and Price told the judge he was amenable "to whatever my lawyer says." The victim is James Harris of Nevada, also known as James Howell, 21, who sheriff detectives said was AWOL from the U.S. Army since July, after which he obtained a job as caretaker with Price at Sunburst Farms' Ogilvy Ranch, 30 miles north of Santa Please turn to Page 14A Creative Fashions for the Valley Lifestyle Valley Plaza, Solvang 688-1557 3& BIT (V DENMARK Restaurant Dinner Specials THURSDAY: Roast 1 Prime Rib FRIDAY: , Red Snapper Provincal MONDAY: Grenadine j of Beef 6.251 TUESDAY: i Top Sirloin $6.50 WEDNESDAY: 6 50 Cnef's sPecial 15,751 8.75 rd 1 473 ALISALRD. i7 i.
