News About From New Orleans A letter from MRS. CHARLES H. DAVIS, now living at 1618 De Saix Blvd., New Orleans, encloses a clipping from the New Orleans States-Item which surprised Mr. and Mrs. Davis with its big boost for the Galena Pilgrimage. While her husband was an insurance executive here, Mrs. Davis was for some years president of the Girl Scout Council and also headed the Freeport League of Women Voters. * * • The clipping enclosed is a column, "In and About Town," by Maud O'Bryan, and the one for June 3 was headed "Natchez of the North Holds Open House.' Mrs. O'Bryan says the name of Ulysses S. Grant used to be one of the less beloved around New Orleans, mainly because he defeated Robert E. Lee. But "103 years have rolled by since Appomattox and most of us are not 'still fighting the Civil War' down South ... "If you want to see Ulysses S. Grant's home, June 8 and 9 is the finest time of the year." She continues, telling of the open house conducted in Galena, "a quaint Victorian lead- mining town (galena means lead) on the bluffs of the Mississippi River." "Galena is as noted for its beautiful homes • and charming hospitality in the North as Natchez, Miss., is known in the South. "Dr. William Gillies, who was a pupil of my Yankee husband at Louisiana State University Medical School, has bought a home in Galena and is restoring it as we restore French Quarter houses here. "Two other friends of ours have invested in a nine-bedroom mansion in Galena and are furnishing it with antiques, coming down to New Orleans to buy them and take them back!" • • • Cycling In Europe Instead of vagabond shoes, JULIUS A. KEGEL, 1515 S. Park Blvd., has a vagabond motorcycle. He's on his llth jaunt abroad. Mr. Kegel, who will be 77 in September, is traveling with a motorcycle group. There are 26 travelers and 18 motorcycles in his entourage. The weather has been a bit wet and cool but the scenery very rewarding, he writes. His note was sent from Zurich, Switzerland. • • • Visits Her Hometown While visiting in Freeport and area, MRS. BETTY BETTS ADAMS of Chicago, who was born and grew up in Freeport, was happy and surprised to see her physician grandmother's picture and the old Belts' home displayed in the Chamber of Commerce window. The pictures were a part of the display of the Auxiliary to the Stephenson County Medical Society, which depicted early medicine in this area. Mrs. Adams' father was a lawyer in Freeport and her grandmother, Dr. Sarah Walton Lowman Wilson, was an early physician practicing in Freeport from 1850 until her death in 1891. In the past, Mrs. Adams, who has her master's degree in music, sang on many radio programs in Chicago. She wrote the music to "Your Country Is Calling," which was popular during World War I. She also iaught voice and piano for many years. In June she appeared on the Buddy Black radio show. Her hobby now is speaking to raise funds to renovate the Governor's mansion in Springfield. While in the area, she visited MRS. R. S. HOOVER, MRS. E. F. KORTEMEIER and MRS. EUGENE VICKERY. New City Revenues Needed?

Journal-Standard Pg. 6 Wed., July 3, 1968 Former J-S Editor Wins Fellowship By DUNCAN BIRDSELL Journal-Standard Reporter The Freeport City Council finance committee resolved some of the problems in making ends meet on the 1968-69 budget in its second working session Tuesday evening at city hall. A deficit of $160,000 between expenditures and receipts in the proposed budget was cut to workable proportions after a heavy slash in new equipment requests for the street department and some expectations that the sales tax returns will run higher than the amount estimated by City Treasurer Ethel Brewster. Tallies after revisions had been completed showed the expenditures for the portion of the budget covered by the corporate tax running about $95,000 above the 1967-68 budget of $1,146,975. Operating funds for the public library and forestry department are raised by separate tax levies. Wage Proposals The budget incorporates city . employe salaries at the same level as the past year, with a longevity factor included. No action has been taken yet by the finance committee on wage proposals by city employes within each department. Employes have asked for pay hikes up to 10 per cent in some cases and city-paid health insurance, according to one source. A meeting will be held next Monday evening with department representatives on the requests, according to Mayor Joe D. Shelly. The full finance committee and chairmen of other council committees that are concerned will be present. Budget Discussion The budget discussion meeting of the City Council was set for July 15, following the regular council session. A special meeting on July 22 was established to pass the appropriation ordinance. Under state statue the ordinance must be passed in the first quarter of a new fiscal year. Freeport's budget runs from May 1 to April 30. The city is levying the maximum corporate tax rate of 26 cents per $100 assessed valuation. The maximum rate would be used in the proposed budget, said Shelly. Brief mention was made at the meeting of using special taxes to make up any deficit that still may develop, but members were hopeful that path would be unnecessary. The city has used a utility tax and wheel tax in the past, but mem- bers appeared wary of reinsti- tuting them. Equipment Cutbacks Aid. Karl Smoyer said the city should check into a special lax on dispensing machines. 'Shelly replied he "could go along with this" and said the suggestion would be investigated. Major cutbacks on equipment for the street department made by the committee were a street flusher ($20,000), redding machine for storm sewers, plus required auxiliary equipment and manpower ($34,000), replacement air compressor ($5,000), one replacement truck ($3,250), and one new truck with hoist ($3,300). A replacement station wagon for the fire department was also eliminated, saving $3,000. A feeling that some of the airport improvement program would slide into the 1969-70 fiscal year brought a $5,000 decrease in that item. Revenues for the coming fiscal year other than property tax were estimated at $1,600 less than last year in the projections of Mrs. Brewster. Committeemen Surprised Committeemen were surprised at the drop when increased assessed valuation in the city and the full-year impact of the one- quarter per cent sales tax increase are considered. Shelly pointed out that there was a "windfall" from protested tax payments at the end of last year. The special utility tax also had an effect in 1967*68. The mayor said he would evaluate the estimated city sales tax returns for the coming year to see if more will be coming in than anticipated. The committee decided to send the library budget back to the library board for trimming since it is $8,000 more than the legal maximum of approximately $110,000 obtainable through the library tax. Forestry Budget The forestry department budget is $65,394, an increase of approximately $19,788 from the past year budget. The figure includes a third payment on a $23,000 sky-lift rig for taking down dead elms. Committeemen included a $10,000 expenditure for a job rating study for city employes. The city now has a price quotation for such a survey. Aid. Smoyer strongly advocated the study be done soon, even considering the tight financial condition of the upcoming budget. "If we don't get this study we'll have our backs to the wall every year," said Smoyer, in evaluating the bargaining strength of the city in salary talks. "Right now we have nothing." Expenses Earmarked The budget makes no provision for any salary increases for elected officials. A $2,400 salary for the new part-time civil defense director is included. Also earmarked is $12,000 for election expenses and $3,000 for a neighborhood analysis. A total of $100,000 is set aside for the city flood control program. The sum would be borrowed from the city industrial fund. Corporation Counsel Robert Schmelzle said an amendment to the state firemen's pension code adopted by the 1967 legislature will mean a five-fold increase in the tax for the fund this year from $30,000 to $35,000 to approximately $180,000. Schmelzle said half the increase will be on a continuing basis. There could be similar legislation for the police pension fund in the future, said Schmelzle. Present for the finance committee meeting were Chairman Elmer Hildebrandt, Burdette Mapes, Richard Luthin and Smoyer, Mayor Shelly, City Clerk Lueva McHugh and Schmelzle. Donald D.

He is em MISS PAULA JEAN BRAWNER By PATRICK CUNNINGHAM Journal-Standard Reporter The downtown plaza, only weeks away from completion, had its first visitors Tuesday with Mayor Joe D. Shelly and 'fficials of Greater Downtown Freeport Inc. (GDF) acting as guides. Des Plaines Mayor Herbert Jehrel and three officials of the )es Plaines Redevelopment Corporation toured the plaza and queried Freeport officials on revitalization of the down- own area. The Des Plaines delegation were guests at a GDF luncheon meeting at the Hotel Freeport. Charles Luecke, GDF vice >resident, explained the nature )f GDF's activities and gave a history of the four-year-old ;roup. Luecke explained that GDF lad been formed to find some solutions to a steady trend toward decay in the central business district. Small Budget "We operate on an annual audget of from six to eight thousand dollars," Luecke said. He noted that GDF has one paid employe, executive secretary James Bruehler. "Property owners are our major source of funds," Luecke said. "Retailers are in our group primarily to generate en- ihusiasm." He said success in efforts to revitalize downtown requires enthusiasm and active participation by retailers in those efforts. The trend in an increasing number of ground-floor vacancies in the downtown area has been reversed in the last year Luecke said. He attributed the reversal to "a combination ol things." Referring to the new trend Robert Kimes of GDF said, "We couldn't have done it withoui the (validated) parking lot." More Parking The validated lot has providec more parking in the downtown area, even with the subtraction of the parking spaces on what is now the plaza, it was observed. "How has business been during the construction of the plaza?" asked Robert R. Trotter of the Des Plaines group. Luecke said that downtown business has "generally increased" during the construc- ;ion. There were several decreases reported, he said, but added that he wasn't sure how severe the several fall-offs had been. Luecke explained that GDF lad emphasized to retailers that "the plaza is no substitute :or good merchandising." Des Plaines Mayor Behrel, who had seen the plaza area just after construction began ;wo months ago,said, "I was impressed with the signs that said this was being done with all private funds; this is some- ;hing we want to hear about." Maintenance Asked about maintenance of the plaza, by the visiting delegates, Mayor Shelly said GDF would provide maintenance for at least the first year. He said this would provide the city time to study the maintenance job and determine its role in the future maintenance. Bruehler said maintenance will be facilitated by the fact that only one-third of the plaza will be sod and greenery. Original plans called for half of the plaza to be greenery. Before taking a tour of the plaza, the Des Plaines delega- gation explained its interest in business district revitalization. Mayor Behrel noted that the Des Plaines Redevelopment Corp. had been founded two years ago under a non - profit charter. He said that future large-scale community developments could possibly involve for- profit developers. On the tour of the plaza, Mayor Shelly and Bruehler explained the various fixtures under construction. Retail expansion and remodeling were pointed out as examples of "enthusiasm" in the revitalization of downtown. The mayor and Bruehler led the delegation through several stores, showed them the valid- dated lot and answered questions concerning the past and future of downtown Freeport.
