. Maybe we should stop talking about
bow much we need our streets
repaired since talking solves few
Let’s put our energy toward
reaching a solution. Let’s work with
the city council and plan how to im-
prove our streets.
We may not be able to afford new
streets this year, but I’d rather be
planning to build streets in the near
future. That’s a whole lot more fun
than trying to figure out how I’m go-
ing to miss the big chuck bole in front
of me without having a head-on colli-
sioo with the oncoming vehicle.

The Dublin High School Class of
1939 plans to have a get-together and
visitation Oct. 18.
The group will meet at Wall Art
Gallery from 2-5 p.m. Coffee and tea
will be served.
Other former students of Dublin
High School are urged to come by and
An informal dinner is also planned
for Oct. 18 if enough interest is shown.
Those wishing to attend the dinner
should contact Tom Peacock before
Oct. 12. His number is 817-879-2884.
For other information, contact
Hack Maikell, 425 N. Patrick, Dublin,
Texas 76446 or caU 817-445-4691
Individuals or groups interested in
sending Christmas mail to members
of the Armed Forces should send a
self-addressed, stamped envelope
(business-size if possible) to:
Military Mail CaU, Box 14397, Nor-
folk, Virginia 23518.
Last Christmas maU received from
across the nation was sorted into
more than 65C bundles and sent to
destinations all across the United
States and around the world for
distribution to two million ser-
vicemen and women. These
Christmas greetings can be letters as
weU as Christmas cards.
It was good to see the road work
which the county and the city are
working on together. I’m sure the
rain has slowed them down some, but
the road should be finished soon.
Seminar set on marketing festivals, events
Besides, I’d rather look at the pret-
ty yards instead of worrying about
damaging my car.
How does a community stage a suc-
cessful festival or special event?
To help planners, the Texas
Agricultural Extension Service, in
cooperation with the Texas Festivals
Association, is conducting three
seminars on "Marketing Festivals
and Events" in the coming weeks.
The seminars are scheduled as
foUows: Oct. 24, Civic Center, Port
Arthur; Oct. 28, Knox HaU, Texas
Ranger Hall of Fame, Waco; and
Nov. 7, Ramada Inn, Midland.
•'We invite community and
organizational leaders as well as
Utters to the Editor
To The People Of Dublin:
Because of some mixups, people
have obtained wrong information as
to when I am at the W. M. Wright
Historical Park to show groups
through the old Miller Mill, etc.
There was quite a mixup when 77
third graders, three teachers and
mh four parents went to the MU1 Sept. 26
I think I’ve attended every public on a Thursday. Well, there were some
hearing the city has held during the disappointed children and angry
past three years. If my memory
serves me correctly, street repairs
have headed the list at every
meeting. And Dublin does need a lot
of street repair.
Street repair is very expensive, but
it would be great if we could get the
money needed to put every street in
women. After they contacted me, I
showed them through on Oct. 1st.
So anyone wishing to go through the
mill, contact me at 445-3457. I am at
the mill Monday and Tuesday all day
and Wednesday until 1 p.m.

PIONEERING SPIRTTAT WORK
STAYING AT THE LEADING EDGE OF ENERGY TECHNOLOGY.
[in fuel costs
vl KRjjtt ^rom ^ginning, we’ve been
pKsS a leader when new, better, and more
I efficient ways of providing electrical
energy have been developed.
As early as 1926, we opened the
first power plant in Texas to use
lignite for fuel. Even in the 1940’s,
when Texas natural gas was abundant
and inexpensive, we were planning for the future by acquiring
major supplies of East Texas lignite.
In 1971, at Fairfield, we completed the first
lignite generating unit - others followed, and
have saved our customers more than $3.5 billion
in the last 10 years. And right now we’re nearing
of the first nuclear power plant in Texas.
We’re still planning for the future in
wide-ranging energy research that in-
cludes everything from conservation
and load management to fusion, solar
and wind power. Wre using additional % Bmun
energy’ sources such as cogeneration and combustion turbines'. All
of these have one aim - to continueflQjdeliver adequate electricity
to our customers at a reasonable cost7
The pioneering spirit isn’t a list of past deeds or an outline of plans
for the future. It’s an attitude, a commitment to looking for, finding
and developing better ways to do
our job. Providing energy
