A copy of all of the bills due for the month of February were presented to all coun- cilmembers. The payment of the bills were reviewed and approv- ed for payment by members of the Council. First on agenda was the police situation in Lockhart. Council members referred to com- plaints made by local citizens concerning the availability to call the Chief of Police. After much discussion council mem- bers decided to table the mat- ter until the next council meet- ing until further discussion could be made. First on the agenda was a discussion by Mayor Timmer- man concerning complaints made hy citizens of Lockhart about the existing police situa- tion. Although various corn- is heading the 1976 Leukemia Society Campaign in Florala, contacted the Town of Lock- hart by letter in regards to a contribution to the Leukemia Drive. By law, the Mayor re- ported the Town of Lockhart is unable to make the donation, but urged each one individually to contribute. 4) It was dis- cussed that materials were needed to build a shed to store Town equipment such as the bush-hog, slip-pan, etc., pro- tecting it from the weather. This was tabled to be discuss- ed at a later date. There being no further bus- iness to come before the Coun- cil, a motion was made to ad- journ by Councilman Manning, seconded by Councilman Barge. All approved. The next council meeting will be held at 6:00 p.m. April 5, 1976. JACKSON Cont. From Front daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Cliff Hedge of Florala; Allen attend- ed Troy State University and is married to the former Debbie Davis of Route One, Laurel Hill, and Mike is a student at Blue Springs School. Jackson states that his am- bition is to serve to the satis- faction of the big majority of the voters. The fact that he was bern and reared in Covington County and knows the needs of its people will enhance his ability to sei-ve. Jackson was a member of the armed forces during World War II, having served twoyears, one oversears. Mr. and Mrs. Jackson are members of the Blue Springs Baptist Church. Staff Sergeant plaints have been made, com- plaints usually fell into one Mal F. Braun category, i.e., no policeman available when needed. Coun- nilman Reynolds made a mo- tion that the present Chief of Police be relieved of h/s du- ties. This motion was not se- conded and therefore no action was taken. After a lenghty dis- cession, councilmembers tab- led this matter until further discussions could be held. The Mayor stated that a mo- tion had been made and car- tied that qualifying fees be charged to candidates for mayor and council members in the February 2, 1976 council meet- ing. -- An ordinance to that effect has been prepared and approved.

March Of Dimes News year's chairman, Mrs. Lillie Mae Thompson of The Yellow Rose Club and telephone chair- man, Mrs. Pauline Green. The Yellow Rose Club was recog- nized, also. Florala topped all other areas in Covington County with a grand total of $631.23. This was accomplished through a door to door campaign, a Sa- turday road block by Yellow Rose members and of course the fine help of Mrs. Green, who is always so gracious in telephoning these she feels will give generously. The club was fortunate this year to have young Yellow Rose members to join the March of Dimes drive this year, four of which received 2-year awards. They were Sheteria Wilson, Sheila Parker, Cathy Parker and Barbara Wilklns. Other youth workers included LaFaye Maltbews, Dale Parker, Mary Alice Adorn, Syrenthia Brooks, Serrena Orndoiff, Jeanetta Wade. The chairman and club mem- bers express their deep appre- ciation to these individuals, businesses, churches, schools and clubs for their generous contributions which will aid in the prevention of birth defects among children. A memorial service was held for two deceased Covington County workers, Miss Lillian Dockett of Andalusia and Mrs. Essie Hilson of River Falls, Alabama. The service was presided over by Mrs. Mary Bass, March of Dimes co- chairman.
