I I 16 The Arizona Republic Phoenix, Sat., Aug. 15,1970 Northern Views Flagstaff's newest prospector will double as city manager and help set up merit plan< FLAGSTAFF —The newest city leader here may have to switch his hobby of panning gold to one of collecting cinder samples. This area hasn't been noted for major gold strikes. He is Richard A. Williams, 31, former acting city manager and then airport manager at Prescott and now assistant city manager here. His wife and two children are keeping the prospecting shovels in Prescott until he finds tham a house to live in here. Williams was selected from more than a dozen applicants for the $12,500* -y e a r job here, according to City Manager Leland C. McPherson. In Prescott, he assisted in classifying city jobs and setting up pay plans, something he will be assisting this city on as a merit system gets under way. For himself, Williams preferred not to define his job too narrowly, commenting, "I'd like to work in any area where I feel I can handle the problems." He has been close to municipal service since graduation from the University of Kansas in 1966. In Prescott, he started as city clerk, moved up to assistant city manager, then served as acting city manager and airport manager. Earlier he was assistant business manager for the Lawrence (Kan.) Daily Journal, for the First National Bank of Lawrence and for Black and Veatch, consulting engineers of Kansas City. But for an avocation he said he preferred prospecting and hunting, in that order. He isn't about to give up city management for gold hounding, however. "I guess I can make 1 to 10 cents an hour panning gold," he said of his finds in streams and rivers near Prescott, Once located, gold apparently is not difficult to spot. "It's almost 20 times heav- Geronimo gains special status at Ft. Huachuca FT. HUACHUCA - The name Geronimo once turned Arizona pioneers' blood cold. But today Geronimo warms the hearts of American Red Cross workers here because Geronimo S. Mendival has given 72 pints of blood to the Red Cross and he plans to give a lot more. Most of Mendival's blood donations have been made here where he began work in 1954. He works in the mobility and weapons branch of the maintenance division. He began giving blood in World War II when he was serving on Okinawa. He also was with the 32nd Regiment, 7th Infantry Division in Korea. Born in Miami, Mendival has spent his entire life in the Southwest. A widower, he lives in Benson with his teenaged son. To Red Cross workers Men- dival is known as Geronimo. "I was named after my grandfather, who was from the Mayan Indian tribe in Mexico," he said prodly. In addition to his regular Red Cross donations, Mendi- val responds to emergency appeals for blood. "I've been overseas in the fighting areas and I know the need for blood," Mendival said. "Many of my friends now have sons in the service and I try to help them in any way I can."

Williams' biggest find was a grain about one-tenth the size of his little fingernail. "I'll bet I don't have a dollar's worth of gold. It's just a great way to be outdoors and even finding a small nugget is encouraging enough to get you out there again," he observed. Some of the best gold panning areas in the Prescott area over the years have been Lynx Creek, Hassayampa River and Big Bug Creek, he recalled. Even without any gold prospects in Flagstaff, he may need that prospecting pick here. If he decides to build a home, he'll be hacking at solid boulders to put in a 30-inch foundation. Richard Williams Kearny citizens question fire department fund cuts KEARNY - With the town's vintage fire truck in need of repair, residents here questioned a cut in the fire department fund of the new town budget. Phil Rosato, town manager, told citizens that funds available in the Public Works Reserve Fund could be used to repair the old fire truck which "was donated to the town. Rosato said that the $13,903 in the fund was probably not enough to adequately rebuild the vehicle, however, as other equipment also had to be purchased from the fund. A special council meeting is scheduled for Tuesday night to resolve the matter, Rosato said. Mayor .Ray Hughes told the council that Kearny has been cut out of the Federal Civil Defense program. He gave no reason for the loss other than that Kearny was one of a number of small towns cut off the program. The council approved the 1970-71 budget of $190,093. CAC holds course meetings ORACLE — Central Arizona College Eastern Division is holding a series of organizational meetings in eastern Final County to set up fall classes in the various communities. Mike Smith, executive dean, said 50 courses will be offered with others to be added if a minimum of 15 students express interest. The meetings will be held at 7 p.m. in these communities: Oracle (Union Hall) Monday; San Manuel (high school cafetorium), Tuesday; Mammoth (gradeschool); Wednesday; Hayden (elementary cafetorium) Thursday; Kearny. (elementary school) Winslow tax stays same WINSLOW - A lower city budget will not be followed by a lower city tax rate in Winslow due to an expected drop in sales tax receipts, city officials reported. The Winslow City Council adopted a 1970-71 budget of $1,584,460, a decrease of 135,000 compared to last year. The tax rate will remain at $1.50 per $100 BMessed valuation. The expected loss in sales tax returns is based on Winslow's population decrease as shown by the 1970 census. The Winslow population dropped from 8,862 in 1960 to 7,982 in 1970. Special projects included in the budget are: flood control, $46,472; street improvements, $4f,MO; and land purchase for new police station and jitt, 1X400. Outer projects include reactivation of the disposal p&nt, library improvements §nd improvements for the animal shelter, airport, rodeo grounds am} city parks.

Winslow to ask better service from power firm WINSLOW - Urged by protests from r e s i d e n t s, the Winslow City Council is requesting anupgradingof electrical service in the community from the Arizona Public Service Co. Mrs. Dolores Davis told the council many power outages had occurred recently and complained of low voltage often carried by the local power lines. Bruce Normandin of Radio Station KINO also testified that there were periods of low voltage in Winslow and said that power voltage fluctuations were hard on the station's radio equipment. The council also passed an ordinance creating a $1.50 a month service charge on residential sewer connections. 4-H youngsters end a week of camping NOGALES-Fifty-two Santa Cruz County 4-H ypung- sters head for home today following a week of camping to Sycamore Canyon near here.

BENSON — The old Benson Hospital will be put up for sale next week while the new hospital stands complete and ready to operate, but without a doctor in residence. The town's only remaining physician, Dr. Dale Kartchner, closed his practice Thursday at the old hospital following a notice of eviction served by the hospital board. Dr. Kartchner had rented space for his office and clinic from the hospital board, which, in turn, was leasing the old building from the San Pedro Valley Hospital District. The sublease arrangement had gone on for seven years. Dr. Kartchner said yeter- day that when the hospital was moved into a new $800,000 building on July 22, he had been assured by a board member that he would be able to retain his office in the old building. "On Aug. 3 I received the notice of eviction and I moved out Thursday," Dr. Kartchner said. "The new hospital does not have office or clinic space for rent, I have been moved out of my office, other space in Benson is at a premium, I have no place,from which to practice so I have closed my practice in Benson," Dr. Kartchner said yesterday. Dr. Kartchner said he could not give any indication as to his plans. Meanwhile, the Benson Hospital Corp, board voted at a recent meting to change some of its bylaws. Dentists will be allowed to use hospital facilities as needed for their patients and for surgery. The board also removed the restriction that limited hospital privileges to medical doctors. Osteopaths will be able to admit patients to the hospital. Amos Browning, president of the hospital board, has announced that Ernest Teagarden, D.O., is expected to arrive in Benson on Monday and hopes to be able to start his practice soon after., Benson residents, meanwhile, h&ve been receiving hospital medical care through Recover your Danish chair cushions for as little as $9.00 per cushion FOAM FASHIONS 1014 I.
