it District Court There was quite a crowd at the spec.lal meeting last Wednesday night at the'Community Center in Westbrook to hear about the possibility of a new cable television service In Westbrook. From some of the comments I have heard since then it seems that many of those at the meeting did not realize the purpose of the meeting. Some said they thought they were going to vote on a new cable system and others didn't really know why they were there except that it had something to do with cable TV. The meeting was actually a public hearing, required by law before any further action could be taken on granting permission for the City Water and Power Commission to apply for a franchise for a cable TV system In Westbrook. Following the hearing, the council met and granted approval for the commission to apply for a franchise. This does not necessarily mean that there will definitely be a city owned system in Westbrook, but it is a first step towards that Judge Bruce Gross, Presiding September 28, 1990 - ' October 1 - 3, 1990 Speeding: $44.00--Warren James Christoffersen, Whitewood, SD; Douglas Robert Heffern, Rutland, SD; Nancy Ann Ward, Minnetonka, MN; Thomas Roy Weber, Lemars, IA; Daniel Orlando Serie, Luveme, MN; Alice Ann Epley, Chicago, IL; Janice Kay Harries, Mountain Lake, MN; Dave Allen Burbank, Sioux Falls, SD; William Clifford Hunter, Storden, MN; Janice Elaine Lorman, St. Louis Park, MN. $55.00---Vicentc Ramon, Jr Pena, Mountain Lake, MN; James Lowell Benson, Jackson, MN; Angela Elaine Horkey, Westbrook, MN; Ronald Duane Staples, Worthington, MN; Benson Wayne goal.

My brother, Robert ;-I" Sherbert and I, read it every week, especially the obituaries. Our childhood friends are featured in that column too often. We also look for news of our uncle, Maurice (who is at the Tracy Nursing Home) and our three cousins and their families. They are Richard and Donald Davis and Babe Jensen. Maurice Farber and his family lived only about four blocks from us before he retired. They have since sold their home and moved near Shelton. We would see each other shopping, etc. I have been in Seattle since 1944, so I don't expect to move. My husband, Duke, worked at Boeing for 37 years before he :etired in 1977. He worked in the tooling shops and enjoyed his job. My class will have their 50th anniversary in 1992. If it's possible, and a reunion occurs, I will try to attend.

Unfortunately, very little plastic in this area can be reused or recycled.The resull is that plastic household was' is taking up roughly three cent of our landfill space. Although technology for re- cycling plastic is currently not as advanced or as widely used as metal and paper product re- cycling, there are some ways we can have an impact on pies-" tic waste. Reduction of usage is the easiest to do but the most diffi- cult to get public acceptance. The alternative is to recycle those types of plastic we can and continue to appeal to both manufacturers and the pub-! lic to decrease plastic use. At DAC Enterprise Recy- cling Center, we accept class I (PET) and 2 (HDPE) plastics. Basically, they are plastic pop bottles, milk, water and like jugs, soap jugs and auto lubri- cation containers.
