Brighton Area Fire Protection Vote Saturday BRIGHTON — Residents of Brighton, Piasa and David Acres and adjacent farm territory will vote Saturday on the formation of a fire protection district. The proposed district is designed to provide more adequate fire protection and thus lower insurance rates. Public meetings have been staged to discuss the proposed district and it was brought out at one of these that a tax of 10 cents per $100 assessed valuation can be assessed to finance the district. At the present rate and present assessed valuation, this is expected to produce between 57,000 and 58,000 a year. Truck In Plnsa Plans, promoters of the district say, are to buy one fire truck and locate it at Piasa. There are now two fire trucks in Brighton, one municipally-owned, the other owned by Betsey Ann Association. Both of these would be maintained in Brighton, handy for runs to the south and to farm areas to the east and west. Boosters for the district, in a recently-circulated letter, contend that the entire area will get better fire protection for a slight tax increase and that the same projection available in Brighton will extended to the rural areas. Piasa Association In Piasa, however, Piasa Fire Fund Association has sent out letters opposing the formation of the district on the contention it will not enhance the fire protection there. The fire fund association maintains a fund to pay outside firemen for making runs to Piasa. Polling places will be Hopper's Service Staion on Route 111, the former Central School west of Carpenters Official Loses Contempt Appeal WASHINGTON (AP) — Maurice A. Hutcheson, president of the Carpenters Union, AFL-CIO, lost Brighton, the Country Store at David Acres, the Don Albert Farm east of Brighton and Brighton Village Hall. another round today in his fight against a contempt of Congress conviction for refusing to answer questions before the Senate rackets committee. The U.S. Court of Appeals upheld the District Court's refusal to grant Hulcheson a new hear'nu. Hutcheson had asked for probation to avoid serving his six-month sentence. He also sought dismissal of the indictment but the court held he came up at too late a stage of the case with the legal argument on which that petition was based. The conviction Involved Hutchison's refusal in 1958 to answer questions about an Indiana highway right-of-way transaction In which Hutcheson later was separately convicted. The contempt conviction already has been confirmed once by the Supreme Court which also has refused a rehearing on that appeal.
