Oskaloosa Mayor Mable McPher- son presented the key to the city to 4-H'ere from Maryland when the exchange group arrived to visit their Jefferson County counterparts. The Maryland 4-H'ers were intro- duced to county businessmen at the annualBusinessmen's picnicinValley Falls. RenTranlwas hired to manage the Oskaloosa City Swimming Pool when it was expected to open in August. Traul was to receive $600 a month durg the swim season to take care of the pool complex. Traul told the council he had run a pool before, about 10 years before. He explained he didn't foresee any problems managing the pool and conducting the pre-season football practice. Some council mem- bers were concerned that since he was the Oskaloosa High School football coach there could be a conflict. Construction on the swimming pool complex in the city park was progressing. Two tennis courts, lo- cated just north of the junior olympic L-shaped pool, had been fenced. The park project was funded through a bond issue and a Bureau of Outdoor Recreation grant. Jane Butterfield, a cheerleader at Oskaloosa High School, was recognized by the Association of Distinguished Young Americans as a member of the Who's Who Among American High School Cheerlead- ers. Butterfield was eligible for ADYA All-American recognition and a $1,000 college scholarship. A very small percentage of cheer- leaders nationwide received the honor. Oskaloosa-native Vestal Pat- terson was named vice-president of operations for Cardiff Cablevision, a wholly-owned subsidiary Of Cardiff Industries, Englewoed, Colo. Included in the new subsidiary were Cardiff Industries Cable TV operations serving 2,200 subscrib- ers in Marlow, Okla., and four towns in Lake of the Ozark resort area in Missouri. Patterson, son of Mr. and Mrs.Vern Patterson, Oskaloosa, graduated from Oskaloosa High School and attended the University of Kansas. 25 years ago this week July 23, 1987... Andrew Sotirhos, Oskaloosa, earned the title of champion frog racer at the Shepherd of the Hills Homestead and OutdoorTheatre near Branson, Mo. Sotirhos won his title in the Home- stead's bullfrog racing competition held at Old Matt's Mill, the setting of Harold Bell Wright's "The Shepherd of the Hills," outdoor historical drama. Sotirhos was awarded a certificate signed by the chief frog trainer. He was named an official member of the Shepherd of the Hills Frog Racing Team. Despite a $1 million drop in as- sessed valuation in the McLouth school district, the district's1987-88 budget experienced a one-half mill decrease. Superintendent Jack Bittner attributed the drop in valuation to the fact that production was down in drilling for natural gas and oil in the district. The previous year, the valuation was $9.6 million and it was projected to be $8 million for the coming fiscal year. A budget carryover of $431,726 helped alleviate any serious budget- ing problems, Bittner said. "That's what saved me,  he said. "Everything is so unpredictable and you have to have some type of reserve." Bob Crowe was elected president of the Oskaloosa Board of Education. Barbara Muiller' was elected vice president. In addition, newly elected mem- bers Jim Ware and Dana Killinger took office. Board members voted to keep the school lunch prices and textbook fees the same as the previous year. Lunch prices remained at $1.05 for kindergarten through sixth grade, $1.10 grades 7 through 12. Textbook prices remained at $10 for kindergarten atudents and $20 for all other students. 15 years ago this week July 24, 1997._ Five Oskaloosa High School stu- dents won first place in the American Enterprise Project at the National Future Business Leaders Conference in Anaheim, Calif. They were Annie Wampler, Shaw- na Dennett, Nickie Perry, Kristy Bertels, and Cristina Smith. Dennett and Perry graduated from OHS and the others were entering their senior year. Making the finals and receiving a trophy for 10th place in the job interview competition was Lindsay Viner. Viner was entering her senior year at OHS. Members of the Oskaloosa Lions Club installed Gary Reyer as their new president. Other new officers included: Janet Helm, tail twister; Ida Hehn, trea- surer; Jeanne Wright, secretary; and John Rebbins, vice president. The Oskaloosa club sponsored two students, Rebecca Bellinger, Oska- loosa, and Tim Pierce, McLouth, to the Lions State Band Camp Week at Emporia. Both students, along with their parents, David and JoEtta Bellinger, and Tom and Ruth Pierce, were dinner gueats of the local club. Oakaloosa's Book Barn had a fu- ture thanks to a Lawrence woman. Nancy Hubble planned to takeover the operation of the business Jan. 1 when the Oskaloosa Public Library's involvement was to end. Hubble, a former Oakaloosa resident, said her whole family was excited about the business venture as they were all interested in books. "I think the whole family will get involved," Hubble said. "We are all q)ook people,' especially my husband and son." Although it was still a non-profit organization, Hubble was considering changing that, but she still planned to keep book prices low. Hubble planned to continue to accept donations and she was also looking at purchasing books for resale. i Έ Tractor Pull McLouth, Kansas At Ih’ CrosroMs of 16 Ilwy. & 92 Ikw. Sat..
