PAGE 10-CHILLICOTHE, MISSOURI-64601 CHILLICOTHE CONSTITUTION-TRIBUNE, WEDNESDAY, JULY 2, 1«0 Neighborhood upset over threat to close couple's flavored ice stand ARBUTUS, Md. ( A P ) - For 14 summers, Adolph and Betty Gapsis have sold flavored, crushed-ice "snowballs" from their front porch. Now the dis- abled couple's stand has been ordered closed, and their neighbors -- including a group of nuns -- are fighting mad. "Is the law always right'" asked Joseph Ambrose Jr., whose funeral parlor is a few doors down from the Gapsis home in this working-class Daltimorc suburb "It's the talk of the neighborhood Everybody's up in arms about it " "They're nice people and every body here loves them. I t ' s a s h a m e , " a d d e d Margaret Hayes, who works for Ambrose The uproar began last year when Frank and Cathy Neubauer, who moved next to the Gapsises in 1978, complained that the refreshment stand was a nuisance and was located in a residential area where businesses are pro- hibited.

The Gapsises take blocks of ice and shave them into snowy crystals The crystals are poured into paper cones, and the customer's choice of syrup flavors is poured over the shavings On Tuesday, a Baltimore County Circuit judge granted a t e m p o r a r y i n j u n c t i o n against the couple until their appeal is resolved. T h e c o u p l e ' s l a w y e r , Charles Kountz Jr , said Wednesday the injunction closing his clients' stand should take effect within a few days. No decision has been made yet on appealing the injunction, Kountz said. The Neubauers have been told by their lawyer not to comment. "I've never hurt anybody as long as I've lived here," said Gapsis, known locally as "Babe," who is crippled by muscular dystrophy. He and his wife of 32 years, who has undergone hip surgery and moves with some difficulty, have lived here since 1954. The Gapsises are a well- known and popular local couple. The fact that both are disabled fueled the controversy. Gapsis, 57, who works as a production supervisor with Westinghouse Electric Corp., said he may soon have to leave his employer because of his ailment America: Past., Present And Future. Independence Day. It means more to Americans than just a celebration. It serves as a stepping stone to the future. It's a door leading to bigger and better achievements. It's an opportunity for all of us to look back at our great historical struggle for Democracy. To look at the present and see how much has been accomplished in only 204 years. And, perhaps most important, it enables us to see that the future of America lies in OUR hands. HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY!
