Gogebic, Ontonagon working on jail fees ONTONAGON — The overflow of Gogebic County prisoners will continue to be housed at the Ontonagon County jail while a price for those prisoners will be negotiated. The Ontonagon County Board of Commissioners a month ago indicated it would charge $35 a day for housing inmates. Gogebic County had been charged $20. The commission said that was not enough. A letter to the county from Gogebic Sheriff Donald Pezzetti indicated the proposal was for a cooperative jail agreement which he said Would be of benefit to each county, when needed. He then proposed a $25 rate. The county board indicated it would charge Gogebic County $20 through Sept. 1 and then $20 a day until an agreement is reached. Once there is an agreement, the charge will be retroactive to Sept. 1. The board suggested perhaps Pezzetti could be charged a bulk rate. Ontonagon County Sheriff Gerald Kitzman said Gogebic County has paid $1,380 in July and will be billed $3,200 in August. "I'm sure we can reach a price agreeable to all," Slye added. In other action the Ontonagon board: —Approved an application for up , to $75,000 for a new wheelchair lift bus for the transit. —Agreed to permit the prosecuting attorney's legal secretary to become part of the union bargaining unit. —And tabled pending additional financial resources a request that a visual approach slope indicator be installed at the Ontonagon County Airport.

Transfer completed (Continued from page 1) Tilk told Rick Sparapani, president of Customer Metal Fabrication, the cSosure and ending involvement of Copper Range which will be occuring in the next few years, is "sad." To keep the memory of "...what happened here in the 1950s alive," Tilk presented Sparapani with a framed share of Copper Range stock, issued in 1947. Sparapani said the turnover of the buildings would not have been possible without the help from BHP Copper, Copper Range, and Dorothy Bussiere, of the Ontonagon Economic Development Corporation. "We located here because of the workforce and the quality work from them," Sparapani said, noting, "This would not be possible without the people within this fa- Beach closed GROSSE POINTE FARMS, .Mich. (AP) — A beach in this Detroit suburb has remained closed since early June because of fecal bacteria contamination ofthe water. • Bird droppings are considered the main source. Pier Park's beach normally is open until Labor Day. "It looks like there is a combination of the sources of contamination, but one of the prominent factor* we feel are the bird droppings," Dick Huhn, director of Grosse Pointe Farms Parks and Recreation, told The Detroit News for a story Thursday. "The beach was " always packed," said MaryJo Harris, who had her young sons David and Daniel at the park. "People don't want to let their kids play in the sand because they are afraid of bird droppings." County and city officials also have identified combined sewer overflows and a lack of water circulation as factors for the high levels. ALUMINUM CANS See Us Again Sept 10, 1998!! 2nd Thursday of every month cility." Sparapani then introduced his partners in CMF, Tom Wickman and Dave Ethington. Sparapani said there are now 25 employees at CMF. The company is doing work for BHP, Stone Container and other construction companies. The purchase of the buildings by CMF has already had an economic domino effect. Just hours after the transfer from Copper Range, CMF transferred A-Warehouse and one half of B-Warehouse to Flo-Wall, a third firm oa the Copper Range property. Tom Roddy, plant manager at Flo-Wall, said marketing work is being completed and he hopes the firm will be doing additional hiring by the end of September. Flo-Wall manufactures a metal insulated panel.
