said he is willing to deal with :Heritage Ministries about keeping alive Christian broadcasting on the PTL satellite television network He said in October that he was interested in PTL as a real ' estate deal The network carried on more than 800 cable systems is among PIL's most valued assets Other assets include I700 undeveloped acres in northern York County SC two 500-room hotels one of them unfinished and a water park Once Memick pays the balance of the $65 million the money will be distributed to PTL's creditors BENNETTSVILLE — Mr Daniel Moore Hall 67 Sonoco Products retiree died Dec 27 1988 at St Eugene Hospital in Dillon Funeral is 3 pm today at Whitner-Evans Funeral Home Survivors are his wife Ruby son Danny Hall of Hartsville daughter Mrs Rebecca Evans father Daniel McKay Hall sisters Mrs Elizabeth Davis of Panama : City Fla Mrs Margaret Smith Memorials can be made to Marlboro Rescue Squad PO Box 123 Bennettsville SC 29512 BENNETTSVILLE — Mr John Matthew Quick 77 died Dec 28 1988 at Marlboro Park ' Hospital Funeral plans are incom: plete Norton-Rushing Funeral ' Home of Cheraw is in charge CHERAW — Mr James Fred Lisenby 62 retired truck driver died Dec 27 1988 at Veterans Administration Hospital in Co lumbia Funeral is 3 pm Friday at : Westside Baptist Church Visitation is 7 to 9 tonight at Norton-Rushing Funeral Home Survivors are his wife Dora son Jimmy Lisenby of Patrick daughters Mrs Linda Chelluk of Lugoff Mrs Cheryl Grice of Chesterfield brother Julian Lisenby ' sisters Mrs Gladys Brooks Miss Dorothey Foust CHESTER — Mrs Alberta L Brown 83 died Dec 28 1988 at home Funeral plans are incomplete Denton Funeral Home is in cptarge all Tourney Vied --: :- -

measles outbreak first appeared about a month ago Since Dec 15 the number of suspected cases in Rowan County has doubled from 44 to 88 she said "The main reason for closing sports events is to keep it from spreading out of the county" said Schaffer The area measles outbreak was further aggravated by a Rowan County church group that was exposed to a child with measles while visiting in Florida over Christmas she said Measles is most contagious five days before the rash breaks out and four to five days after it appears The request to close the tournament was made jointly by the NC Division of Health Service's JIM GUNDStatt off some clothes at the Goodwill South Boulevard in Charlotte manager in Charlotte said people should keep a list describing in detail what they've donated "If they're ever audited if there is a question about the value of the goods they donated the list will help" Sneed said Taxpayers should be careful he said to claim no more than the fair market value of an item — what it could reasonably be sold for "A lot of people don't realize the market value of used clothing for example is fairly low" Sneed said He suggests that those in doubt check prices at a thrift

For Permanent Runs By TED MELNIK Staff Writer Charlotte uptown officials are looking into making permanent the 10-day-old experimental shuttles that move office workers and shoppers around the central business district About 50 people a day have ridden the red- and blue-flagged vans which loop through uptown along two routes But some officials believe ridership could increase substantially if the shuttles — now scheduled to stop Jan 6 — keep running and become better known Mike Schneiderman executive director of Charlotte Uptown Development Corp said the shuttles could become an important link between shoppers and uptown stores "This is just one way to make shopping more convenient" he said The shuttles sponsored by CUDC and the Central Charlotte Association began Dec 19 as an experiment to put more uptown stores within reach of lunch-hour shoppers The vans are free and run 11 am until 2 pm daily Stops are Center in Lancaster Funeral is 3 pm Friday at Charlesboro Baptist Church
