NUMENT INN Business owners join with police to fight crime rate in Baytown In a continuing effort to combat crime in Baytown, the police department has begun a crime alert program for businesses. The program involves patrol officers working with business owners to cut down on the number of burglaries of businesses in Baytown. Officers on the night shift are told to watch businesses for trouble spots which might be inviting to a burglar. Should the officer find any problems, he fills out a form about such and sends it to the patrolman on the day shift. This officer then contacts the owner of the business and makes suggestions on how to take care of the problem, thus helping to make the business theft proof. Robert Merchant, assistant chief of police, said that the program appears to be a huge success. "Business owners have been most cooperative." Merchant said. And he added that the idea has been well-received by officers. "They are doing a good job of reporting problems." Merchant said. "It is this type of program where the public works hand-in- hand with the officers "that makes crime in a community drop." he said. BRENDA DIAZ DE LEON Motor home venture all began with bus C.H.I!' (. oast Sea'ood 2710 Battleground Road • 479*1521 Tuesdays alter 5 PM • No Reservations • Dining Room Only ODESSA (AP> — When mechanic Loyd Delcore and cabinet maker Robert Slaughter met each other through a mutual friend a while back, they never dreamed they would team up to manufacture a custom-built luxury motor home. But 16 months and thousands of hours later, the pair are in business — the motor home refurbishing business. Delcore and Slaughter decided the best way to market their trades together was to build a motor home from scratch. Does it Again!

I-1M7 418-2639 Bay Plaza Hwy.146 So they bought a rusted body of an old bus from a junkyard in Abilene and went to work as Espen Coach Corripany — the Espen being Delcore's middle name. "We've had lots of calls on it," said Delcore. "Everyone is just curious where it came from, but we built it from scratch" They crafted cabinets using three-quarter-inch imported Canadian ashwood. They also added such features as a rearview television camera and an electric refrigerator that runs on butane when the power goes out, and then cuts off the battery when the butane is emptied. Delcore said no shortcuts were taken For convenience and luxurv. the pair installed a total of three televisions, a water bed. a built- in vacuum cleaner, a built-in safe, gas-fired barbecue and a hydraulic system that stations the bus on a level plane once stopped. Delcore's wife, Raye. said she rarely saw her husband during those months, but was pleasantly surprised with the end result, She said the two were so wrapped up in the project, that at one point, she had to serve them Thanksgiving dinner in the garage. "Thai's the day we designed the dashboard," laughed Delcoro. "But we look off Christmas," added Slaughter. Oddly enough, the most difficult problem encountered was what color to paint the bus. No one could agree on that,; They painted the vehicle five times before choosing a deep maroon accented by polished stainless steel and a mural ol their bus painted on back. Delcore figures about $500.000; was invested in the project — $±25,000 for the interior alone "I had one federal judge in New York City call me. 1 don't know how he heard about it. but the word is getting out," said Dc-lcore. Both he and Slaughter now plan to market their project at RV trade shows around the.
