THE BAYTOW1N 1 SUN Mont Belvieu residents get buyout money Sunday, August 30, 19*7 3-A By DEE M1CKELSON MONT BELVIEU - Frankie and Arneda Johnson are enjoying the positive about what could have been a negative situation. They are the first homeowners to close on their property in the voluntary Mont Belvieu buyout program sponsored by Chevron U.S.A., owner of Warren Petroleum Co. Chevron will pay approximately $944,00 for 23 pieces of property in Mont Belvieu, one church and 22 homes, according to Art Spencer, public affairs manager for Chevron. The Chevron buyout program is separate from the Mont Belvieu Program, a property purchase program which includes Warren Petroleum Co. as a member. Chevron will spend about $7 million for the two programs, Spencer said. Mr. and Mrs. Johnson and their four children will make themselves at home in a new house they have bought on Vista Drive in Baytown. The same day of the closing on, their Mont Belvieu property, Mrs. Johnson also graduated from Baytown Technical School with plans to work at Humana Hospital in Baytown. Her husband owns Gulf Tex Air Conditioning in Houston. "I'm glad to get out; to have the opportunity to improve myself," said Johnson, who called the Chevron buyout a "once in a lifetime opportunity." Other homeowners closing on Mont Belvieu property on the same day as the Johnsons included Gussie Williams and Oranza and Mercedes Terry. Mrs. Williams, an original Pablo Street resident, said she was "glad to move out. The house is about to fall down." She is planning to live in an apartment in the Mont Belvieu area. Terry, owner of Terry Lumber and Construction in Houston, bought the Pablo Street property as an investment. He said he was "very satisfied" with the sale of his property. Chevron sent "letters of assurance" to residents, who were advised to contact Nicholson Land Services to arrange times for closings. Statewide Title Co. of Baytown is handling the paper work for the closings, which should be complete by Nov. 20.

Mulvihill Legion commander Late flights to be monitored Bob Mulvihill of Baytown is the new commander of American Legion Post 552 in Sheldon. Mulvihill is a 16-year veteran of the U.S. Navy, serving during World War II as a gunner in the Pacific. He was also the first chief to tour with the famed Blue Angels. Mulvihill was nominated as Legioneer of the Year in 1975 by national headquarters while serving as commander of the 8th District. He is also a past commander and life member of Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 912 in Baytown. The new commander of the Sheldon post said that increasing membership of the post will be his primary goal. "Too many eligible veterans are not joining any veterans' organizations and are losing out on many benefits that are offered." Mulvihill said.
