Dear Mrs. Caswell:

Because of your conscientious efforts, the members of the Kingston FFA Chapter feel that our Safe Farm Power Use Program has been a success.

Our program was very well received and we are hopeful that we prevented a few farm accidents. The chapter members and our advisor are most appreciative of the services you rendered and for your continued support of our accident prevention programs.

In our community we held 2 public meetings and talked to 52 families. We feel people now are more aware of their responsibility toward the safe use of farm power.

Thank you for your assistance.

Kingston, Michigan

Mr. Clerk

As a taxpayer in the Village of Kingston, I would like to ask a question which has bothered me, and from what I’ve heard several other people in this town.

A person has a home, and does their best (as money allows) to keep it as clean as they can for their own personal pride, and to be an asset to the town. So why is it that these same can’t even walk into their own back yard without the sight and smell of horse manure? This sight and smell is especially offensive when on a nice summer day people would otherwise enjoy the use of a picnic table. I can’t understand why farm animals are allowed inside the village limits. I think people should be more considerate of others that have to live near them.

My question is asked, Mr. Clerk, What is the answer?


Confused Connie

The above letter while not signed is a carbon copy of many complaints that myself and Pres. John Burns have been getting since warm weather has come. There is no ordinance banning horses from our village but we believe that everyone should endeavor to maintain their residence in such a manner that the neighbor next door can enjoy his residence, too.

I invite your attention to Ordinance No. 6034—2 in part: No person shall place or deposit, in an insanitary manner upon public or private property within the Village any human or animal excrement---It has been the policy of the village council to not take a hard fast line everytime an ordinance is fractured a bit. We would appreciate everyone trying to apply the golden rule to their lives and we are sure we would have a wonderful place to live.

Sincerely, Walter Harmon
