Sunday Anril 1.1 1975 THK HF.RALD, Provo, Utah -Page 5 County Funding Asked for Itfescrvers' Several representatives of United Way of Utah County have asked the Utah County commission to consider aiding in the funding of Lifesavers Clinic. Jack Holmes, director of United Way. told the commissioners that a report of the clinic's operation showed 365 people were examined for veneral disease, and 1377 received immunizations. Commission chairman Verl D. Stone pointed out that Utah County partially funds the City-County Health Department, and the commission has preferred to have any funding for health services go through the Health Department. Asked how much the funding amounts to, Commissioner Yukus Y. Inouye, who represents the commission on the City-County Board of Health, said the county furnishes $206,000 out of a budget of over $1 million for the department. The remainder of the budget comes from the school districts and the state, he said. Bruce Hronek, member of the United Way board, said his organization has been approached for funding of Ijvesafers Clinic. "We don't want to run two parallel programs. We are interested primarily in dollar efficiency, and we would like documentation that verifies the effectiveness of the present health program," he stated. Mr. Stone said the Livesavers people have been to the county commission several times asking for financial help, but the commission has felt its funding should go to the Health Department. He emphasized, however, that the City-County Health Department is supervised by the Board of Health, and not by the county commission. Commissioner Inouye declared that he had attended one meeting of the Board of Health and had been treated in what he termed "an ungentlemanly manner." He related that he had been told he was not a member of the board Provo Declares Library Week The Provo City Commission is planning to declare this week National Library Week in Provo. The city fathers are encouraging the citizens of the city to take note of the increasing facilities and information available at the city library. The national week is to be observed from today through next Saturday. unless the board said he was a member. United Way representatives asked who appoints the health board, and the commissioners said they did not know. "Perhaps it is a self-perpetuating board. I don't know who first appointed it; it has been operating with the same people since I was elected," Commissioner Stone stated. Commissioner Inouye recommended that the Unitd Way representatives meet with the Board of Health so they can hear that agency's side of the matter. Mr. Holmes pointed out that he understood two members of the health board, its chairman, Mrs. Virgil Parker, and Dr. Virgil Parker will be leaving soon. "Perhaps this is a good time to determine where the responsibility lies and how the department functions," he said. Commissioner Inouye observed that the new comprehensive health plan coming from the federal government might require some changes to be made. The commissioners agreed to arrange a meeting between the two groups. Others representing United Way were Wayne S. Hansen, Mt. Fuel; Douglas N. Rich, Project Concern; Winston M. Crawford, LeRue Thurston, Dr. Kenneth Creer, and Russell Innes, all of United Way. Also in attendance were Darrell Cook of Mountainland Association of Governments, and Lynn Curtis of Community Action. The first land battle of the Civil War took place at Philippi, W.Va., when Union forces repulsed Confederates on June 3, 1861. NEARLY 100 SEATS in the 686-seat Huish Theater in Payson have been seriously damaged by vandals according to manager Dorothy McFadden. Efforts in the past to patrol the theater has failed to deter the rash of destruction to theater property. Damaged chair backs cost $18 to repair and each reupholsterlng job costs $6.50. Mrs. McFadden hopes for increased parental support, "Otherwise," she said, "Payson's only movie theater may have to close." Santaquin Council Okays p™ Stronger Policy on Dogs | , SANTAQUIN - Because 15 residents were bitten during 1974 by loose dogs and a number of lambs and sheep have been maimed or killed, Mayor 0. Doyle Crook issued a warning to dog owners that Santaquin dog laws will be strictly enforced. He and councilwoman Zaloma Goodall noted that all dogs over eight weeks old must be licensed or they will be subject to apprehension by the animal control officer. This ruling applies for dogs running lose, the officials added. The two pointed out that a friendly family dog is sometimes not so friendly after dark or when it is off the owner's property. City officials added that prior warning has now been given dog-owning residents and the law will now be strictly enforced. Councilwoman Goodall reported that rumors that the local animal control officer was using inhumane methods for disposing of animals was unfounded. Officials feel the new policy calls for cooperation between all concerned and that the policy is a step forward in resolving animal control problems in the city.
