David Jaye, who represents Michigan's 12th district, tells us Thursday was "Cost of Government Day," meaning it was the day when each American has finally earned enough to pay his share of the total financial burden of government. Th« good n#w* is you're not working for yourself. The bad in it took 176 days on, average to pay the $13,395 cost of government for every man, woman and child in America. ONTONAGON — A "First-Acre Ceremony," sponsored by the Soil Conservation District, will mark the beginning of a multi-year study of the soils of Ontonagon County. Bill Antalone, Soil Conservation District, told the Ontonagon County Board a ceremony to kick off the project will be held Tuesday at 9 a.m. at the Ontonagon Township Park. At the peak of the project, four employees will be engaged in surveying and testing the soils of the county. The only tost to the county will be for office apace, If you're... ...tired, here's why. Thin year Americans will work 48.8 days to pay for state and local spending, 39.2 days for federal regulations, 30.5 days for Social Security and Medicare, 13.7 days for national defense, 13.3 days for interest-on the national debt, and 30.2 days for other federal programs," said Jaye. Government spend 48 percent of the nation's net national product, and federal regulation will take more than $750 billion from taxpayers in 1&9S, Jay asserts. Does this mean those who take weekends off muat work for the government until September?

With demand for electricity soaring toward record levels, utilities in nearly every Midwestern and Northeastern state aaked customers to conserve energy by turning down their air condition- era and reducing appliance use. In cities from Texas to New York, the mercury had climbed past 90 by noon. The heat — which began Thursday in most areas —• isn't expected to break until next week.

In Nebraska, near-record electricity use in the Omaha area Thursday contributed to an outage that left 6,500 homes without power for nearly five hours. In East Liberty, Ohio, a Honda auto plant scheduled to close for a week stopped production a day early because there was no guarantee it would have power throughout the day, spokesman Roger Lambert said. Republic Engineered Steels of Massillon waa ordered by Ohio Edison to shut down its furnaces. Workers were sent home at 10 a.m. Industrial electric rates soared along with demand, and steel mills elsewhere in Ohio and Indiana cutback. ^LUNCHEON SPECIAL?"
