Champion Hitchhiker DeVan Smith, 47, wto hias toavded 300,000 mites by hiifedh- fli'ilwg in the past quarter oif a cemitury, thumbs far another ri'die on a Kansas City, Kan., stopover. The Penmisylviaraian 'is 'asking for ttettibens of trmmmendialbiion ifrom public officials as ia means of goodwill touring China. NEA 'Denny~ 2, fayourvwught^\ Dear Penny, We belong to a private lake association, and we.have worked hard to make this place an enjoyable place to take our children and relax. This year they are allowing liquor at the lake, and it isn't possible to enjoy yourself with that going on around you. It is a well-known fact that water and liquor do not mix, and I'm afraid there will be more accidents if something isn't done. Upset Member Dear Member, If you are a member, that means you must have an organization of some sort. Let your feelings be known to the president or the board of directors, and urge other members to do the same. You can be sure that if enough members feel as you do, there will either be a change in the rules or policing of the premises to make sure that present rules are followed. Dear Penny, Who can taxpayers turn to in order to get township roads maintained when the road commissioner does nothing? He says he is unable to work, but he still draws his salary and does not hire any help. The roads have not been maintained for months and arc in terrible shape. No Roads Dear No Roads, The first person to check with is the township supervisor. If you don't get the right answers there, remember there is an annual township meeting when township officials are elected. Generally speaking, it does not take too many votes on the township level to influence the outcome of an election. Find a willing candidate for the post of road commissioner and organize support for him. If you have a commissioner who isn't doing his job, it shouldn't be difficult at all to convince the voters they would benefit from electing a person who would see that their tax dollars are put to work to their best advantage. Dear Penny, We are a group of 12 people who order out every night at various restaurants in Galesburg. Last night we ordered from a well-known restaurant and called individually to reduce the chance of error. When we received the food, it was short almost half the order. Coupled with this was the fact that the food was cold because it was packed with cold drinks, most of it was undercooked, and the salad container—which cost $1.25—was only half full. When we discovered the error, we called and were told we would be given the Items we were shorted. When we sent a man to get the rest of the order, he was treated rudely by the cashier. We have all eaten at various restaurants, and we have never received worse food or service! We plan to talk to some of the business associations in town. What, if anything, can be done beyond this? We could have gone on an on about the various things that were wrong with the order, but we realize you arc limited on space. Call Us Hungry and Dissatisfied Dear H. and D., With food prices what they are, I really don't believe you have to do anything. It is my opinion that people are very price and service conscious right now, and they won't long settle for being gyped. A business that doesn't give full measure today, especially in the restaurant business, will soon suffer from an acute lack of customers. Thinking of you . . .
