Wallace requested and Alabama received five major declarations during 1975. FDAA tells us that this is a record. the last three years Alabama has been involved in tajor disaster declarations than during the entire history Defense. Yet less than I00 Alabama citizens have lost ~es as disaster victims. -eight of our sixty-seven counties are presently re- under our federal/slate disaster assistance re- Program. 4,000 Alabama citizens have received federal/state Central and Southwest Alabama with amounts of 7 to 15 inches. Besides major river flooding, there was also extensive flash- flooding to other areas including the Mobile area. Damage totals over the whole area was something like one-fourth million dol- lars. SEPTEMBER 23 . . . HURRICANE "ELOISE" She moved onshore just East of Fort Walton Beach, Florida, about 6 A.M. CST on September 23 and moved Northward ra- pidly through Southeast and East-Central Alabama. Winds ex- ceeded Hurricane force over several Southeast Alabama Coun- ties. Heaviest damage was in the 14 county area of Chambers, Lee, Macon, Russell, Bullock, Barbour, Pike, Crenshaw, Cov- ington, Coffee, Dale, Henry, Geneva and Houston. Winds were clocked at 120 MPH at Fort Rucker. Other peak gusts included 88 MPH at Dothan, 74 MPH at Auburn and 59 MPH at Anniston. Eloise inflicted very heavy damage to agriculture with an es- timated 50,000 uprooted pecan trees. Much of the corn crop was a total loss and the soybean crop was severely damaged. Hundreds of buildings were damaged and somedestroyed. Numerous mobile homes were destroyed or damages. Power outages were wide- spread and, in some cases, lasted for several days. * THE YEAR OF THE RAINS Parts of South Alabama got nearly a two-year supply of rain during 1975, but it was wet practically everywhere. Even in ex- treme North Alabama, Huntsville had crossed the 70-inch rain- fall amount by the third week m December. That's a surplus of about 20 inches. But the real wetness was over South Alabama and it looks like the Conecuh County seat of Evergreen will lake the rainfall "honors" for 1975. By December 29, theyear's total there stood at an incredible 106.67 inches. That's nearly 50 inches above nor- mat! It is believed to be the most rain ever recorded in one year anywhere in Alabama. In fact, Evergreen had already received their normal year's supply before the year was half gone-- 58.40 inches for the first 6 months including 18.20 inches in April alone. * Indicates Major Disaster Declarations would be mighty nice if that kitchen could be finished - cabinets built and the kitchen furnished with cooking utensils, china and silverware. It is mighty inconvenient to use as it is now, though a lot of people enjoyed the use of it during the summer months for family reunions, class reunions, etc. It could be a lot nicer if we had a Representative and a SENATOR who was interested in the welfare of this end of the county. How many of you have seen Crum Foshee in the Florala- Lockhart area since he was here asking for yonr vote and sup- port in his Senate race? I haven't heard what his plans are, but I hope he does come this way once again asking for my vote. I want to have the opportunity of saying - - NO, thank you! I feel a little differently where Frank Jackson is concerned. He is about as friendly a fellow as you will ever run into - the kind of person that you can enjoy being around. When he called last week, he asked about all the family, including Mack and Lucile (Morn and Mack). Now some of that is the politician, but some of it is genuine concern, too.

Alabama Weather Highlights Director Sullivan also sent us a summary of Alabama wea- hlighis, from the National Weather Service, which has to sort of a record, also. It is most interesting: ALABAMA -- A YEAR FOR THE DUCKS vet in Alabama by any standard but over parts of almost unbelievable amounts of rain fell--in- ~eWhopping 107 inches at Evergreen.

The Hugh Hinsons who reside on North Sixth Street, sure had a bad experience during the weekend. Their youngest son, Mark, a fourth grader at Florala City School, had saved his money and bought a pet goat from a friend for $7.00. Mark's mother, Peggy, had told me earlier about the goat and how much her boys and their friends enjoyedplaymg with "Billy" goat. Additionally, Peggy said that she loved having him around because he served as a garbage disposal -- he would eat just about anything. But his favorite food was sweet potato peelings. They really are an amusing animal and are just as personable as can be. Hugh had built Billy Goat a pen in back of their home and he was kept penned so as not to bother neighbors. The pen has a spring-type gate that swings only one way, making it fairly easy for anyone or anything to get in the pen, but near impossible for Billy to get out, unless someone turned him out. Mark, who bought feed for his pet out of his own money, got up early Sunday morning to feed Billy Goat and found only his re- mains in the pen. A dog or dogs had either been turned in the pen or pushed the gate open, killed thegoat and had eaten most of him. Of course the boys had cried and were so upset that all three of them slept with Peggy and HughSunday night. Peggy was famished, to say the least, Monday morning when she came by the office to report this happening - they were none able to sleep. I just don't know what the answer is going to be with all this dog trouble. It looks to me like the Mayor and Council will have to pass some sort of leash law to try and cope with this situation. This is a problem that all towns face - large or small. We can't afford to hire a dog catcher and operate a dog pound, which would be the most logical answer. Theonty other alternative I can think of, would be for Council to pass a leash law. Mr. Oscar Wooten, employed with The Bank of Florala, told me at the football banauet Saturday nicht, that he thought he had seen the dogs I had written about in last weeks column, out near 10 TORNADO OUTBREAK land area of St. Clair County where one persorl was ~d 38 injured.

It probably is a good thing they didn't. Mothers with small children sorely do need to be very careful not to leave them in the yard unattended. Dogs that would kill and eat a goat, if they were hungry, would do the same to a small child. And according to this report, theywould not really be safe behind a fence. Those dogs either had to jump the fence after killing the goat and eating him, or someone had to let them out, after allowing them to commit this vicious act. People staying at home need, not only to look out for them- selves, but for their neighbors and report any suspicious look- ing dogs, especially thos'e without collars, to the Florala Police Departm ent. The Hinsons have reason to believe the killing of Billy Goat may have been a malicious act. But they have no way of know- ing for sure - except that someone may have seen something susnicious Saturday night. If so, the Hh, sons would certainly 23 TORNADO OUTBREAK appreciate your letting them know.

Hopeful: ly, action will be taken on the Town's grant applications dur- ing the month of February, 1976.

Councilman Reynolds asked what action had been taken to purchase a used truck for use by the Town's maintenance crew. Mayor Timmerman sta- ted that we were still trying to locate a good used truck at a reasonable price. Councilman Lassiter sug- gested that bills owed by the Town be reviewed by all mem- bers of the Council prior to payment. All Council members agreed that henceforth all bills, with the exception of routine utility bills, shall be reviewed by members of the Council dur- ing the regular council meet- ing held on the third Monday of each month. All members of the council expressed some concern about the lack of control over duties performed by both the Town's Recorder and the Town's police- man. Councilman Birge asked the Town Clerk to review all matters relating to these two functions and to present his findings and recommendations to members of the Council at the next regular council meet ing. This study request was approved by Mayor Timmer- man and all members of the council. There being no further busi- ness to come before the Coun- cil, a motion was made by Councilman Birge to adjourn. Motion seconded by Council- man Manning. Meeting closed with prayer by Councilman Man- ning. The next council meet- mg will be held at 6:00 p.m., January 19, 1976. Laurel Hill City Council Minutes Admits His Shortcomings I received a long distance telephone call last Friday afternoon and the guy on the other end of the line, Representative Frank Jackson of Opp, said - "This is that old ugly ducklin' you wrote about in the paper this week," or something similar to that. Anyway I was pleased to hear from the old boy and find that he was still kickin', if not so high. Frank said that he had been sick and stayed in the hospital about three weeks and then at home recuperating another three weeks. He had a problem with not getting enough oxygen to the brain, which the doctors said might require surgery. We cer- lainly hope not and he said that his wife had put her foot down and wouldn't agree to that at all. Frank says he is feeling much bette r. On the subject never receiving any of the State Legal Notices - Proclamations by the Governor, he said that was a problem that arose before his and my time and he didn't think there was any- thing he could do about that. However, he said he would try. He said that he never had asked for the proclamations for any news- paper, though he guessed he should, but never had made a prac- tice of doing so. You know I told you last week that Jim Lambert thought we had received the other half of the Proclamations. Since The Opp News published No. 8 through No. 17, and the Andalusia Star News didn't receive any, he thought surely The Florala News had Proclamations No. 1 through 7. When I told him that the governor's office didn't recognize but two newspapers in the Laurel Hill City Council, m regular session Thursday night took immediate action to pro- vide council supervision m the present and future special pro- jects. The action was taken follow- ing a report by Council chair- man Day in what he said was strong criticism from the pub- lic when workmen on the new storage building at the main well site failed to "dry in" the roof before quitting work, which allowed the uncovered roof decking to get wet during the holiday rams and buckle up, that could have required installation of new materials. All agreed some actio n should be taken in eliminatinglike pro- blems in the future. Following a lenghty discussion on the matter, Councilman Sanders a- greed to take over the respon- sibility until this building is completed and also re-roofing of the RuritanClubHouse, dam- aged during the September hur- ricane. In other action council re- quested Councilman-Fire Chief Wynn to operate the fire truck at adequate intervals to insure that the truck would be ready at all times for immediate use and voted to pave the fire house driveway. Sanders was author- ized to proceed with this pav- ing when paving the ramp at the new building. The need for immediate ac- tion on the two items became apparent Friday night, Decem- ber 26, when the fire truck failed to start and the neces- county, he called and gave them a racking over about not getting sary manpower wasn't on hand the other half of the proclamations, to push it off. The parking In order for the amendments to be legally voted on in the res- pectiv e counties in Alabama, they must be published in each COunty in the State of Alabama for four successive weeks next preceding the day appointed for the election... Not a portion of the procla- mations, but ALL the proclamations. When editor Lambert made his call, of course the Governor's Office made some excuse about having sent them. But Jim said that he and his wife were the only ones who opened the mail and he had been looking for them, specifically. Guess what? The other half of theproclamations arrived at the Star News Office thevery next day, but too late for them tobe pub- fished for four successive weeks and otherwise, the vote in Cov- ington County won't be legal.

In other action approved an ammendement to city Ordmaee 136 in reference to penaltys imposed on all unpaid water bills, which states "All unpaid customers accounts shall be deliquent on the 21st day of each month. A $10 penalty will be added to the deliquent bill. To continue water service, the customer must pay unpaid gross balance, plus the $10 penalty". In related action to the matter council also approved a request by clerk Hurston to include a copy of the ordinance along with a letter to each customer sta- ting the "Clerks office will be open for payment of water bills on the 2, 3, 4, 9, I0, 19, and 20th of each month from 6 p.m. till 7 p.m., ex- cept Sundays and Holidays.
