"You need to raise rates, post haste." Luther was not at last week's meeting and the board discussed lower- ing the minimum amount of water and sewer before additional charges are incurred. Mayor Jerry Alexander and Ward 3 Alderman Derrick Gates were also absent and no one in attendance seemed to be leaning toward lowering minimum amounts. The board will read- dress the issue at its meeting next Tuesday, "The east lagoon going to S-8 is two or three months away," Ward 2 Alderman Gene Alexander said. "I'm afraid we're going to be surprised when SCUA starts billing us for the east lagoon." 25% off Storewide Select Handbags & Wallets  - CountrV Sfiol00e " k r Hwy49 S. 601-928-2395 " M,T, TH, F 9:3O-5.0O Sat 9200 CL,ed Wed.

Taken from the Sept. 1958 Bank of Wiggins Insert Pish out ater According to Aesop, a Lion roaming along the seashore saw a Dolphin basking in the sun on the surface of the water. The Lion, as king of the beasts, was always seeking allies, and made a compact with the Dolphin that they would help each other when either was attacked. So when the Lion and the Bull got into a fight, the Lion called upon the Dolphin to come to his aid, which the Dolphin was helpless to do. Aesop moralizes that one should choose his allies according to their power as well as their will to act. And a fish out of water is as helpless as a manwithout money in a financial cri- sis. Money is a powerful ally when it is needed. Bank of Wiggins } t
