[~Off'/SYOh~S Page 9 1976 FHS Football Report The Florala High School had another outstanding year in football this year in all respects. The estimated total attendance for five (5) home games was 6.569 and the paid attendance was 5,296. Total income for the athletic department for July 1, 1976, through November 17, 1976 was $9,043.23.The largest part of this came from gate receipts for varsity games which was $6,854.00. The total expend- itures were $7,683.58. The largest item here was equipment. $2,992.37. This leaves a balance of $1,359.6S. Outstanding accounts are approximately $147.93. This leaves an approximate balance thus far this year of $1,211.72. The coaches, players and managers did an outstanding job of caring for equipment, etc., and making a little go a long way. There will be a great need for much new equipment this year though. The support shown by all our fans this year was typical and great. Principal Charles Stevenson expresses his thanks to everyone for their help and cooperation. With the won- derful support of our school officials, local and county officials, school students and staff, and all our community businesses and individuals, we can have an outstanding athletic program and excellent schools. This is all greatly appreciated. BAND Continued from front the fact that we did not try to sound like a 150-piece band. but sounded full with a SO-member band," he added. "They were also impressed with the fact that we utilized everyone in the band," Alsup stated. It is great to know that the judges could appreciate the hard work our band did for this show. he said. The judges said that they could sec the sense of pride, the discipline and the good sp/irit of the Florala Wildcat Band, hc concluded. The Florala News, along with the City of Florala, congratulates the Wildcat Marching Band, Drum Major Willie Sasser, the Color Guard and Mr. Andy Alsup on a job well done in Valdosta. equipment and Councilmem- bers Buddy Strickland, Wilson Jones and Sybil Mickler said they hoped the city might even be able to do more for the fire department. However, any action on the purchase of the listed equipment was tabled until the next meeting of the council on a motion by Councilman Strickland. This action was taken because the council has not yet seen their operating budget for next year and felt it necessary to see what funds would be available for the purchase of equipment. All the council approved the motion with the exception of Council- man lnabinett, who opposed it. Applications for Grants Most of the meeting was chaired by Mayor Pro-tem, Carious Buffalow, because Mayor Joe Evans had to attend another meeting on city business. However, before Mayor Evans left the meeting, he brought the council up to date on the City's applications for grants under the Public Works Bill. Evans said that the application for a $1.2 million grant for the construction of a new city hall complex, had left Dothan and the city would be notified in 90 days if the program were no( funded. If the city is not notified within 90 days, the grand is automatically approved, Evans said. The city might hear of approval before the 90 days, if the program is funded, Evans said. since the federal government is planning to approve or disapprove ap- plications as they recieve them. In any case, the city should know by February 22 if we will receive a grant for a new city hall, Evans said. Evans also told the council that applications under the same program will be submitted in hopes of getting grants for a new well and for assistance on a sewage treatment plant. Submitting requests for these two grants will in no way effect the first application, Evans said. the old dump if a man were stationed there to see that there was no "illegal dumping". In other business, the council voted to allow the company demolishing the old ice plant to use the city's crawler equipment to finish the job at the old ice plant, if they signed a legal contract drawn up by City Attorney, Allan Cook. taking all responsibility for any damage the crawler might do while on the job and pay a standard rental fee for the use of the equipment. The council also heard a report from Councilman Stri- ckland that Joe Cox, presently serving on the Utility Board for the city, could legally remain on the board until someone else was appointed. City Clerk Mar(ha Byrd reported that City Attorney Cook had said that as long as someone was living inside the city limits at the time of their appointment, they could legally serve out their term. Joe Cox moved into a new home just outside the city limits after he was already serving on the Utility Board. The next council meeting will be December 13 at 10 a.m. at the City Hall.

Gillman Dan Giliman 11-2S- I tpd The Problem at the Old Dump The mayor and council also discussed the problem at the old dump in Florala. Recently the Health Department of the state, ordered the old dump closed to all dumping. The city had been using the old dump as a place to deposit leaves, trees and other natural waste. The problem, according to Evans, is that other people bring household garbage to the old dump. The dumping of this raw garbage is illegal and breaks environmental protec- tion laws.
