ELSIE THOMPSON Memorial Services By BILL HAGER Herald Staff Writer Manatee County Commissioner Ken Burton apparently has lined up of influential allies for Manatee County's unof-1 ficial Preserve the Piney Point Port Power Plant Site and Save Our Inland Resources movement. Burton, in Washington, D.C.

this week for a water resources conference, said this morning U.S. Senators Lawton Chiles and Edward Gurney and U.S. Rep. James Haley "are inclined to agree" that the Florida Pow-" er and Light Company generating station should be at the Port rather than in the county's interior region.

County officials have been generally opposed to alternative to the port site, a 000 acre tract near Parrish which would require for plant operation tremendous volumes of fresh water from the Little Manatee River.

"It would be silly to move i inland when we have a place right there at the port. And it looks pretty good that we can rely on their (Chiles, Gurney and Haley) support when and if we get somebody to make a decision," Burton said. The commissioner said he spent three to four hours Monday at a House committee hearing on electrical power emergencies throughout the nation. Haley is vice chairman of the committee. The matter of decision-making apparently is a major problem alleviating the nationwide power crisis, he noted.

Burton said there are 40 to power plants currently ready for construction in various regions of the U.S., but development has been delayed by indecision on the part of state and federal regulatory agencies. The status of plant application has remained unchanged for months. The state Air and Water Pollution Control Board rejected the initial application to the port site on grounds the plant could have an adverse effect on Tampa Bay ecology. The alternative site, revealed recently, is about four miles east of the port. The tentative plan involves creating a acre artificial lake to be used for a cooling pond.

The necessary water would be drawn from the Little Manatee River, a principal source of the region's future water County officials have been a good deal less than enthusiastic about the proposed alternate site. But the decision rests with the state pollution control board, and it has virtually condemned the port site as a possibility for the $200 million plant. Burton said he spoke "very briefly" with the congressmen about the I-75 extension through Manatee County. "They seem to think it's up to the State Department of Transportation to make the decision on I-75. But we have their support on getting the money to fund it." The most recent announcement on DOT plans for extending I-75 south from its present terminus in Tampa came last Thursday from DOT Secretary Ed Mueller.

Mueller said if "everything goes absolutely right," the fourlane highway should be constructed through Naples by 1976. He said the Manatee County section from State Road 43 to SR 780 in Sarasotawill not be under contract before mid-1974. Environmental al considerations delayed the original I-75 extension timetable. The DOT initially had planned to have the work complete by 1975. MJC Warehouse Plans Are Approved By Board By BETTY TROVINGER Staff Writer Manatee Junior College Board today approved construction of a warehouse for storage to be located beside the mantenance building on the north end of the campus.

While board member Hal Chasney protested what he termed spending "all this money for 100 employes," MJC President Samuel Neel reported the non-certified staff members have "gone along with these "We can concieve of paying someone to negotiate with them (staffers)," said, in response to Chase's comments. William Evans, chief business officer and comptroller, suggested the "labor turnover has been cut down" since the board approved the first pay study report three years ago.

Recently, the Manatee County Library Board asked the city to include a library facility in the overall plans for the 50-acre site. Bradenton City Council turned the proposal over to the advisory committee for study. Croll told The Herald, "All suggestions are being discussed and we are not to a point where we could make a recommenda-(rida Ition as yet, but the library has been receiving able consideration."
