Sheriff Issues Warning Loose dogs are roaming in the vicinity of the Sharpsville School building and are deemed to be dangerous to citizens, Tipton .County Sheriff Richard Ziegler stated Friday evening. Numerous complaints have been relayed to the Sheriffs office and he said he was obligated to first warn all dog owners about letting their dogs run without being controlled and if the dog menace is not resolved within the next two days, all loose dogs must V be disposed of by legal means. Again the sheriff said he would like to see the loose-dog problem solved without arrest or the liquidation of dogs, but if the situation is not corrected immediately he and his deputies are obligated to take action. Residents Complain Of Trash Littering Tipton County Sheriff Richard Ziegler said he has had several complaints from residents south east of Tipton about litter and trash falling and blowing from trucks and other types of motor vehicles onto the roads and then left to be blown or drifted into properties adjacent to the roads. "' • Sheriff Ziegler s said he was now requesting all persons hauling trash to the Tipton County Landfill or any other dump site to take precautions to prevent trash or litter from falling onto the right-of-way and that if items do fall from^ehicles the^ law requires the items to be removed from the right-of-wav. Penalties are just as costly for involuntary littering as voluntary littering, the Sheriff stated. Ziegler said his office was more concerned in eliminating and resolving the problem than to have police vehicles stationed in the areas to make arrests for voluntary or involuntary littering. Drivers, with experience have suggested that all trash loads be covered with canvass or. plastic to prevent items failing off. oU 45$'PER WEEK SECOND CLASS POSTAGE AT TIPTON.

BARRETTE INDIANAPOLIS (UPI) —Two of Governor Whitcomb's proposals for funding of anti-pollution programs have yet to reach the starting gate with the deadline Wednesday for introduction of bills into the 1971 Legislature. . One proposal— a four-cent tax on each non-returnable container sold — appears unlikely to reach the introduction stage. The other, a' sewer use tax, may be introduced before the deadline, but probably will find ; the .sledding rough. The tax on containers so far has not mustered enough enthusiasm from any legislator to be drafted and introduced. The sewer use tax was an interim study committee proposal to which Whitcomb gave his stamp of approval, to be filed in Both would have the House, where all revenue raising bills, must originate. | Rep. Robert Bales, R-Danville, chairman of the House Public Health and Environmental Affairs Committee, said privately last week that he was. having trouble achieving bipartisan sponsorship for the sewer use tax bill. When Whitcomb. proposed it and the container tax, minority Democrats labeled them part of a "nuisance tax" package. •However, Rep. Richard C. Bodine, D-Mishawaka, House minority leader, said Democrats, had not taken a caucus position on barring minority House, members Lcm booking toe bii:> But he said most minority members would probably prefer an alternate method of raising such funds. ' •„ Molly .Rucker, a legislative council staff member with expertise in environmental matters, said lack of action on the governor's proposals would not leave a hole in environmental funding. "The only new money we're asking for is $400,000 in the Environmental Management Act'," she said. That act o would create a pollution control agency with broad powers at the state level. . • • I The $39. million that could be raised through the sewer; use tax and the container tax would be spent on programs at the local level. Whitcomb said $20 million from the sewer uee tax and $5 million from the general fund would go into a matching fund program with local and federal government for sewer treatment projects. ' | Without .the state's 25 per cent, local treatment projects could not- receive the 50 per cent federal funding evening if the local unit came up with its City Court City Court Judge Glen T. Boyer assessed the following fine in City Court Friday: Jack L. Lowery, 22,405 Woodland Dr., Lebanon; for speeding $10.00 plus court, cost $26,25. 4 Chairman Says Restructure of State Tax System Impossible In One Annual Session INDIANAPOLIS (UPI) — Restructuring Indiana's tax system is a bigger job than one annual session can achieve. A Republican tax program is likely to emerge from the ma­ jority members of the H o u s e Ways and Means Committee the week of Feb. 15, according York Scores— Jim York (42), Tipton's scrappy forward-guard, goes high In the air to "can" one of four field goals Friday night In the 66-64 Satan win at the Tipton gym. (Photo by Elwood Call-Leader) to Rep. Samuel A. Rea, R-Fort Wayne, the.chairman. But has explained that complete restructuring of Indiana's tax system will have to be done in three stages, of which only the first and possibly the second stage can be achieved in the 1971 session: Here are Rea's three stages: — Those changes that can be done now with, the "existing " tools" and be equitable. He referred to sales and individual adjusted income taxes which can be changed this session. — Reform of the corporation adjusted income and gross income taxes which" Rea said "possibly" could be revised this session, • Voters Must Approve — Changes that must await adoption of a constitutional amendment permitting the Legislature to divide property into "reasonable classes for purposes of taxation or exemption from taxation." Rea said these changes could not be made before 1973 if the proposed amendment is adopted by the voters in the .1972 election. However, since some lawmakers are not satisfied with the wording of the classification amendment as it passed the 1969 Legislature and as it now goes before this session, a chance of further delay until 1975 is possible. If the 1971 Legislature kills the 1969 version and starts a new one, it would have to be passed by the 1971 and 1973 sessions and go before the, voters in 1974. "We. will try to get a tax program out on the. 15th or the 18th," Rea said, referring to a 25 per cent. The other $19 million, which would come from the container tax, would be dedicated to "abating! pollution by our local communities," according to Whitcomb. The container tax, howeverj fan into the stiffest opposition, from legislators of any Whitcomb proposal. Conference On Revenue Sharing Rescheduled •• : . • i ••• • , .
