Friends of Fremont Area Parks Inc., which formed last summer, Electronic to be used BY DEREK UPSON Staff Writer Two men were ordered to wear an electronic monitor as part of an intensive supervision program in Dodge County District Court Monday. The monitors allow law enforcement officials to check the location of the men at different times each day. Kent Hartung, 24, 1 820 E. 19th St., and Gary Townsend, 18, of Arlington, will wear tire monitors for the' first 180 days of their three-year probations. Judge Mark Fuhrman said this was the first time he had used the intensive supervision program, which became available to the courts in October. Hartung admitted on Jan. 28 to violating four terms of his Dodge County District Court probation. Hartung had been placed on probation after being convicted of a Class IV felony theft charge in 1988. He was sentenced to an additional two years probation under the same terms and conditions.

Different people have differ-' ent interests, Dillow said. Some want new lights, new dugouts; but there just is not the money in the budget for these improvements. Sutton 'agreed, saying federal funds, which used to fund park expansion projects, are no longer monitors on 2 men DISTRICT COURT On the same day, he also pleaded guilty to possession of cocaine. For that offense, he was placed on 36 months probation. Townsend pleaded guilty to the theft of a 1978 Pontiac Firebird. He .allegedly duplicated the keys to the vehicle during a test drive and stole the vehicle on Dec. 4. Bill Fauncc, intensive supervision coordinator for the region that includes Dodge County, said the program is similar to placing offenders under house arrest. Faunce said the program uses electronic monitoring equipment, including an ankle or arm bracelet and a monitoring box connected to a telephone. The bracelet, slightly larger than a watch but not easily removed, emits a signal to the phone monitor that registers on a computer. COUNTY COURT The law requires the dealer, a person possessing more than six ounces of marijuana, to pay a tax of $100 per ounce to the Nebraska Department of Revenue. The firearms and possession charges are Class III felonies, punishable by one to 25 years in prison andor a $25,000 fine. The tax stamp charge is a Class IV felony punishable by, up to five years in prison andor a $10,000 fine.

Superintendent Gary Schmidt said at Tuesdays Board of Education meeting. Ground-breaking for the addition, located on the Third Street side of the school, began in Sep- tember, Schmidt said. The mechanics of the structure should be done by April 1, he said. Finishing touches will be added at that point. The actual size of the schools gymnasium has not been increased. On the ground level, a mens coaches office, weight room, storeroom, and custodial closet are near completion. A stairway leading to the second floor was poured on Tuesday. . The upstairs will consist of a wrestling room, womens coaches office, girls locker room, custodial closet, whirlpool and dressing area. - . - This really gives us the room that we need, especially with the weight room, Schmidt, said. Weight equipment is currently kept on the stage area in the gymnasium. . A rubberized floor covering has been selected for the weight room, . - -.It wont tear, he said. ' The projected total cost of the project is about $250,000, Bergan Principal Randy Eikmeier said. About $147,000 has been spent so far.
