' Kossuth Approved For U.S. Food Stamp Plan ^ According to s. letter received by Mrs. Helen Huber, Kossuth aasiai w&Jars director, this week, this county is definitely to be included in the Federal Food Stamp Program, a'plan through which neeny laniilies may boy groceries at reduced rates. The letter stated, "Kossuth count}- has been approved to participate it ibs Food Stamp Program' and went on to say planning session^ ior the plan will get underway as soon as possible Mrs. aubsr stated Friday she had not received any information regarding £ possible date when the program will be put into effect Here. The letter she received came from the Iowa Department of Social n £1." "**—• 1 An application for Kossuth's inclusion in the play was made in May 1966- and it is expected the program might be in effect here auout the middle of this year. By Jan. 1 this year, 43 of Iowa's 99 counties were using the plan. The stamp set-up is designed to replace the surplus commodities program. Through it, food stamps will be sold at the welfare office here, with the stamps then used to purchase anything edible with the exception of some imported foods, beer and cigarettes. Grocery stores must be authorized to participate in the program The number of stamps that can be purchased by a family is dependent upon income- and there is also a bonus stamp arrangement, through which the needy family gets more stamps than purchased. Grocers then take the stamps to local banks where they are repaid the actual cash value and the banks redeem the same amount of money from a Federal Reserve Bank. The U. S. Department of Agriculture pays approximately two- thirds of the program costs and the county pays the balance. Tools Found A tool box and tools, reported lost or stolen by Ray Dreyer, Fenton farmer, to Sheriff Ralph Lindhorst last weekend, were found in that area Monday, according to the sheriff. Marshal Don Hurlburt of Fenton called Lindhorst to tell him the tools had been recovered and were being returned to the owner.

City Studies $170,000 Plan, Curb, Drainage Howard Smith, representative of Wallace, Holland, Kasler and Schmidt, Mason City engineering firm, told the city council here Wednesday night that estimated cost of a possible curb and gutter and drainage project, which may be completed here this year, will be in excess of $170,000. About 65 blocks.(both sides of the street) would be included in the project, which was originally proposed for completion last year. A total of 38,838 feet of curb and gutter is included- and with the drainage included, aproperty owner with a single lot (66 ft. and not located on a corner of a block) would spend about $299.64. However, the city council is studying the project further before taking action on it. The city might decide to pick up part of the tab - and if the council accepts one plan presented, that portion would amount to $69,844 - reducing the property owner's bill on a 66 it. front to $3 per foot, or $198. Besides the actual cost of the project, other costs would be involved. These costs, however, were included in the estimates, which are usually high. These costs would include design, $12,100; publication, legal and administration, $6,700; inspection, $5,700; staking, $5,300; plats and schedules, $2,000; and contingencies (possible other expenses), $7,608.70. Until final action is taken by the council, a possible date for starting the job is not known. Proposed ordinance 457, governing the prohibition of parking on several streets near the business district, was given a second reading. Wm. C. McCorkindale of Sky Coach, Inc., explained the service his company could afford the city and a resolution approving the road use tax report for 1966 was adopted. A class C beer permit was granted for Dunn's Sure Save market and the firm of Knobbe, Gallagher, Volberding and Wadsworth, Estherville, was again employed to audit the city's books for 1966. ! fy-x ••••• ••••- Irvingfon Ideals Irvingtoh Ideal 4-H club met on Jan. 21 in the St. Benedict School hall at 1:30.
