(TIMESphoto by Ken Good) City Council At Springdale Meets Tonight SPRINGDALE-The C i t y Council will discuss a resolution to reallocate $9,388 the city's revenue sharing funds at its regular session tonight in t h e city administration building. The funds to be reallocated are those left over from the 1973-1974 fiscal year's revenue sharing budget. All the money allotted the police, fire and recreation divisons in the budget was not spent. This money will be reallocated to the same departments but will be used for different purposes. The fire department will spend- $2,000 of its reallocated money on a portable heart monitor-defibrillator that will be used in the recently-purchased intensive care ambulance. · A new employe will be hired for six months with $2,700 of the police department's money to serve as a records clerk. ·Police money was also used to relocate the traffic office within the department. · Money allotted to the recreation division last year will be spent on a trampoline and football equipment for the : Murphy Park Youth Center anc : a pool table for the Park Street - Community Center. ' In the former budget, parj . of this money was to be usec to buy playground equipmem . for the Park Street Center, but state funds will be obtained for this project.

Coon Reports On Funds Collected For State Race LITTLE ROCK (AP) -- Ken oon, the Republican candidate or governor, said Monday that c had collected $52,000 and pent about $37,000 in his race or governor. Coon said he was making a ull disclosure of his campaign nances and called on his }emocratic opponent, David 3 ryor, to do the same. Coon said the public has a ight to know who is financing ie campaign so the voters can ecide if a candidate is in debt o anyone or to any special in- erest. Coon also said he would open Is campaign books so that the lublic could see who is financ- ng his campaign and how the ·noney is being spent. "One of the major reasons 'm doing this Is to do some- hing positive about winning ack the confidence of the pul c." Coon said. "The public's onfidence in government is at n all-time low, and we have to o something to earn and win jack that confidence. And, the nly way we can change the ipinion of the public is by some lositive action. Just talking about it, like my opponent is doing, won't make it happen." Charles Bernard of Earle, toon's campaign manager, gave the largest single contri bution -- $5,100. Coon's records showed that most of the 550 )lus contributors gave about $5 o $25 each to his campaign Bernard was the only person to donate more than $1,000.

Jail Food Adequate OONTlNirED FROM PAGE O.«) soul food when you are locked You cat a lot of meals be- use you know that you won't t any more food atler Uie eal unless you have snacks, said. He was then questioned about e claims of the juvenile in- ales. "A fat juvenile was always Iking about not enough food, dually, they were good kids it they were smart-alecks. ley would yell obscenities up le'hall and write on the walls their cell. They tore their 11 up. two of the boys, ana at's why they were made to ash the walls and scrub the oors," the first inmate said. The second inmate, who has erved t h r e e and one-half onths for assault with intent kill, agreed with the first male. "Feed Is f a i r here, con- derlng it's a jail. We have a n c a k e s for breakfast smetimes and a sweet roll and offee for lunch. They're a little hy on the meat they serve but a man ain't working and just ing around a cell, he can ake it tine. I've got to say ley've treated me fairly, he The third Inmate, convicted f burglary and grand larceny, as served one month in the .11. "I'm a high security prisoner, laring the cell with a drug fender, and we have a efrigerator in our cell. My wife as brought me steak. In the ning area, we've had a lot vegetables in the last three eeks. "On Sundays, we have pot ies. Last Sunday we had stew r e have hardly any meat and ver milk. It's enough for me Ve don't do nothing anyway nd so we don't need much don't believe there's anybody here that's hungry," he saic the jail diet. The fourth inmate inter rievved served seven months in he Benton County jail for delation of the Arkansas ho heck law. He has been al Vashington jail for one month. "This is like a hotel for fallen ngels compared to the Benton ounty Jail. I've gained weigh ince I was moved here. At ths 3cnton County jail, they ha more of a variety in the foo( ut you couldn't eat it. It often vas cold or had hair in il h e r e were no snac! privileges there. A prisone: vas allowed two books and twi nndy bars," he said comparini tie two jails. The fourth inmate also sail hat prisoner treatment wa much belter at the Washingtoi County jail. He said that an nmate is allowed to take on hower a day and is given fresl owels and clothing once a veek. Sometimes, at the Benton bounty f a c i l i t y , thes irivlleges were withheld. "We're allowed visitors six !ays a week here. The cell: ire cleaned every day and wi an have radios to pass tii ime. In Benton County I saw a lot of cruelty. Sometimes the ook combs and toothbrushe away for a month and ther were times that I was cage n a seven by seven cell fo 0 days straight. "Here, we get out at leas wice a day for meals and It' nice to visit with othe prisoners then," he said. The inmate was then asktx about morale at the jail an v h e t h e r any unfavorabl conditions existed. "One of the new jailors give us a hard time sometimes, t juy can ask for medicine an le's slow in getting it. At nigh ie'll wake ' all. the guys i jarrncks cell and take a head count. There's about 15 guy in the barracks cell. But that about all. "I've been in jails where the use electric cattle prods o prisoners and ridicule the in mates with mental problem But that kind of stuff doesn go on here," the fourth inmat aid. The Inmate was then asked bout prisoner feeling toward ic law enforcement staff at the til. SAYS LONG FAIR I can't spcuk tor all the guys ere. I think that the sheriff a pretty fair man. I've seen im do a lot of good things jr inmates and he'll treat you ght if you treat him right, he wanted to. he could make things rough here but he'll o whatever he can to help you. he guys don't badmoulh him ere," he said. The juvenile incident was hen mentioned and the inmate aid that he had seen this roblcm other times in his jail xperiences. "I've been in four different 11s and there's always trouble rom the juveniles. They're oung and so they don't have much sense. They fight and c r ew up the privileges of Iher prisoners. They're just mmature brats." he said con- erning past jail experiences. Nina Clark, jail matron, was . u e s t i o n o d concerning her xperience with the juveniles is jail matron, she over-sees he preparation of prisoner meals and cares for all uveniles in custody at the jail. 'The six juveniles wantec omeone to mother them ant would buy them candy anc igarettes if they didn't have ie money. Being immature hey were in a slate of constaiv urmoil, wanting something all he time. Other than occasional ad language, they were nice 0 me," she said. MATRON COMMENTS Mrs. Clark then commentec on the feeding of the six boys vhich stirred up the recen :ontroversy. "The boys were fed the sani hings as the other prisoners Some days a local doughnu ,hop would bring day-old doughnuts and the boys were he first ones to receive them. "One overweight juvenile hat hree helpings of food one nigh and then proceeded to eat of if three other boys plates when hey finished. He was con stantly complaining of the food )ut he had enough,to eat," Mrs Hark concluded. McCann said that a proble: exists as to the funds whic are allotted for feeding of coun ty prisoners. Feeding of the inmates is th responsibility of the Sheriff. Th Sheriff Is allowed $2 per da per prisoner for food and thl saves the road for "lega :orruptlon" in the program. McCann says that it is techn cally legal for a sheriff to hoi his food budget down as lo as he can, then pocket th access. He believes that thi has occurred at the county jail GUILT DENIED Sheriff Bill Long said Monda that his office is not guilty c any mismanagement of fund In the feeding program. "If I have 25 prisoners o one day, I am allotted $50 the county for that day. At th end of the month, adding u [he expenditures for each day 1 am reimbursed. Some month I come up short and othe months I make a profit. It a evens out," Long stated. Long said that food purchase are made from local market and economy houses h deputies or matrons upon h: order. He said that, if give the choice, he would giv charge of feeding of th prisoners to some other count agency. Mayes said Friday that blam for any mismanagement of th food program has not bee aimed at anyone. He said thf perhaps all the people are blame because we sometime "tend to forget about those place in jail." Investigations are expected continue this week and author ties hope that findings will soo determine whether the couni jail is truely a "Devil's Island or. reversely, a "hotel for falle angels." · Fields Pleads Innocent In Shooting Death Of His Wife Dale Eugene Fields, 31, of 905 C a u d l e Ave., Springdale, suspected of the Oct. 5 shooting death of his wife, pleaded not guilty in Washington Circuit Court Monday to a charge of second degree murder.
