Chtttnlttg Mississippi River Waters overpowering the might of the Illinois at the confluence of the two rivers here have carried driftwood and debris down from the north, cluttering the backyard of this community's only feasible chief source of revenue — public recreation. .Lily pads, logs and mosquito- breeding swamps cover the shallow waterfronts along nearly two miles of potentially scenic shoreline, Instead of boat docks, harbors and camping areas. Health hazards instead of healthy atmospheres exist because of the mosquito problem. It is retardation instead of recreation. Debris-ridden shorelines are not compatible to boating and other water activity. Shallow waterfronts that need to be filled to facilitate marine activity are Instead a graveyard for dead tree limbs. The problems of Grafton Lake are not hard to figure out. And they wouldn't be hard to solve if the community toad die financial resources to match its natural resources. / The town's mayor, Gerald Nairn, a stocky, former beer truck driver and deputy sheriff, is probably more concerned about Grafton's ' waterfront development than anyone else. The whole community wants to get rid of the problem, but needs help. Nairn admits that his community, although rich in natural beauty, wouldn't be able to finance any elaborate development of waterways recreation area, so he has turned to the state and federal governments for help. Last year, the plans for a $1.2 million boat harbor and marina, half of it to be paid by the federal government, were set back at least a year when a : single bidder submitted a price . Some $406,000 over estimates. ; The federal government, as expected, turned down the bid. Mayor Nairn hasn't given up, but there are no plans for new bids. The elaborate marina and boat harbor with its nearly 200 •electrically-equipped boat docks ; and slips would have been the ; key to the door to Graftoi\'s rec- .' reational development. It wou?d have been a boon to ' the community's tourism industry and an inspiration to other private developers who have projects in mind for the area. Equally important, the harbor • and marina would have cleaned * up part of the shoreline. '. Two engineers from the U.S. ' Corps ot Engineers said the harbor, if developed, would help the waterfront problem, only in the area where the harbor is built. However, waters flanking the harbor they said would continue to attract driftwood, they said. The .1rift wood problem is caused by the overpowering Mis sissippi River waters pushing the driftwood against Grafton's banks. A strong current churning out of the Mississippi toward Grafton's sliores and wind blowing toward Grafton is the source of the problem, the engineers, Wil Ham Douglas and William Thomure, sa<d. The engineers investigated the problem last week at the request of Nairn. However, the inspection re' suited in little more than some goodadvce. The corps of engineers, ac cording to the inspection team, could not do anything about Grafton's problem since the fed eral government's Jurisdiction is limited to the river's channel. ' the corps of engineers coulc only dredge out the harbor if the driftwood were hampering ; the channel which it appearently is not. Only when the channel becomes more shallow than nine feet will the corps take any ac tion, and this happens in the Grafton aw$ possibly once every three o| lour years. H and when the channel it dredged, the corps, wttb toe CQO- eeut of Graraw, could shoot the river bottom-ififtU |nto tbe baj. sprucing up again for the tourist season. Already, Grafton offers so much to the tourist. Fine dining Meanwhile, Nairn said be turn to the state tap help. The Maya? said be feels that is mosquito problem could be labeled a health hazard, or per- fa said, the community receive some help un federal ReauUfieaUon Act. 11 j&aW lie i§ not touting ffSlBMMilSfl tfi tjfe week tie areas wfere fresh river catfish is served, antique shops and a riverboat museum are only part of its attractions. But, according to Nairn, the community could offer much more with the development of its harbor areas. WE THE FAMILY OP Mfl. Mamie Brown would like to thank the many friends, neighbor*, relative*, and personnel of the calvary Southern Baptist Church, Rev. George Peek and Rev. Howard (Todd) Taylor, for the many flowers, calls, cards, food, etc, that were donated during our time of Mr,'Robert M. Brown,...Mr*. Clifford Tatley, Mr. Mllford Brown, and grandchildren — 27 DRIFTWOOD TRAP — William Thomure of St. Louis, engineer for the U.S. Corps of Engineers, points out to the Mississippi River, showing where • driftwood is navigated toward the banks of Grafton. Looking on are Wil- liam Douglas (wearing hat), another engineer for the Corps of Engineers and Grafton Mayor Gerald Nairn. The trio got a good bird's eye view of Grafton's waterfront problem from atop a bluff above the city. CLUTTERED WATERFRONT — rina and boat harbor which was set Driftwood, debris and oil slicks cover back at least a year when bids were the Grafton waterfront. The area shown rejected, is. part of the projected site for the ma- November Asked By Shapiro SPRINGFIELD, 111.—(Special)—Gov. Samuel H. Shapiro made a bipartisan plea for voter support of the constitutional convention and the $1 billion Water, air and recreation referendums in the November 1968 general election. Speaking at the eighth annual meeting of the Bernard Horwich Jewish Community Center in Chicago Tuesday night, the governor told the group that these issues "should be completely apart from the realm of politics." "Approving the constitutional convention referendum is the first step in the long march toward modernization of our state charter," the governor said. Pointing out the obsolescence of the present Illinois Constitu tion, the governor noted that the Revenue Article deals with "such matters as taxing 'hawkers and jugglers'." The governor also stressed that "approving the call for a constitutional convention does does not mean a change in Illinois law. It only means that a convention will be held. The convention's proposals must go back to the voters for approval." In discussing the resource development bond referendum, the governor said: "Passage of the bond issue will permit us to put into effect a master program for the development and management o: our water, land and air resources. It will give us a capital fund large enough to finance this plan." Gov. Shapiro was honored at the meeting for this years of service in government and to the Jewish community in general Mrs. ZolUe Frank, president of Jewish Community Center, presented the citation. Home on Oakwood Drive Heavily Damaged by Fire Fire apparently caused by an electrical short caused heavy damage this morning to a 3- bedroom ranch-style home on Oakwood River in Godfrey. James Sanders, 22, said he had been making trash pickups for his father's firm, and had returned to dump a load at about 9:30 this morning when a neighbor told him she had seen smoke coming from his house. Sanders said he ran to the house and found the kitchen and rear porch on fire. He said he pulled the fuses from the fuse box and another member of the family called the Godfrey Fire Department. Firemen had the blaze extinguished at 10:20 p.m. Sanders said all he was able to salvage from the house was a stereo and a television set. Sanders said me house was Miller to Head GOP In Jersey JERSFYVILLE - Former Jersey County Sheriff Paul Miller has been elected chairman of the Republican central committee of Jersey County.
