Beginning phase of construction, to accommodate 200 boars, is scheduled to begin March 1, 1997. Phase I consists of one 50' X 200 boar stud barn, an office and lab, plus containment basin and primary lagoon. Phase II, to be completed by the end of 1998, adds a second bam. The company has chosen the site because of the remote location and isolation from the remainder of the farm sites. Semen, which must be used within 48 hours and can not be frozen, will be extracted from the boars and transported to the farm sites on a daily basis. New boars are the basis an ongoing synopsis of genetic improvement in the herd. At the request of Beaver County Planning & Zoning Board members, Erik Jacobscn, Circle 4 development leader, conducted a mini tour of the site Monday.

New Birthing Room At Milford Valley Hospital Historical Tidbits Milford Valley Health Care Service is pleased to announce that we have done some rearranging of rooms within the hospital. This has allowed us to '"create" a new birthing room. In 1995 there were 15 babies born at the hospital, this year we estimate 50 babies being delivered in our facility. The new room is considerably larger and much brighter then the old birthing room. Years ago the new birthing room was used as the delivery room, but for the past several years it has been used as the Physical Therapy room. Doctor Spaulding loves the extra space, however we are not done with the room. We would like to get rid of the clinical look and make it a full fledged birthing room. This means a much softer and contemporary look. The hospital has selected a committee of five ladies to decorate the birthing room. The committee consists of Taryl Taggert. Julie Barnes, Luceil Hardy, Susan Potter, and Renee Jacobsen. This represents three employees from the hospital and two ladies from the community to help out. The community has always been great in supporting the hospital and we feel this cause w ill not be any different. In order to accomplish our goal we will need at least $10,000. Once the room is completed we will honor those who donated by listing their names on a plaque outside of the birthing room. We have already received generous donations from: The Pink Ladies Circle 4 Farms Greg Romans By Norman Baxter: This is in remembrance of a great Naval Officer and a wonderful man. Admiral Arlcigh A Burke (31 Knot Burke). He died in January 1996 at the age of 94. In early 1943 he was a commander attached to our Destroyer, the We were part of Task Force 68, a force of four light U.S.S. Waller (DD-46cruisers and 10 to 12 Destroyers, operating around Guadal Canal. In February the Task Force received orders to attack the island of New Georgia and destroy Munda Airueld on that island. Another island, Koolabangara w as near and a harbour was between them. The orders didn't sound very promising. We had no navigation charts so would go in blind. The area was thought to be mined, there were enemy warships in the harbour, Munda Airfield was large with all types of aircraft and large gun emplacements were imbedded in the mountains and cliffs surrounding the area. When we left our harbour, the Waller was ordered to go ten miles ahead to do the scouting. Commander Burks came to the Radio Shack to tell us that he would handle all communications from the Bridge, on the voice circuit. That left us with nothing to do but sweat. It was very dark and we hugged the shorelines to avoid Radar detection. We were so near the beach that you could see the Natives campfircs. Cmdr. Burke reported back that the water was too deep to be mined. As we neared the harbour entrance, four enemy ships came out. At first Radar reported them as Light Cruisers but changed that to heavy Destroyers. We were getting very near to them, so near that one of the radiomen whispered, "What is he going to do? Ram t them?" It was then that we realized that Cmdr Burke was going to attack them with our little ship. Finally the Cmdr launched a spread of five torpedoes. The first ship received two and disappeared as quick as you can say it. A second ship was hit with one, but stayed afloat. The Radio Shack was too confining so I went out on the bridge to watch. Brave? Hardly, numb was more like it. You are there and there isn't one thing that you can about it. Whatever was going to happen, would We did our shaking, afterward. Each salvo from the enemy was happen. nearer that the last one. We were about to get clobbered. But, at that moment, our Cruisers came into range and between us. the ships were sunk. The Waller went into the harbour and Cmdr Burke reported back that all was clear. The Cruisers came in and lined up. They chopped the airfield from one end to the other. What a sight that was! It was as though we were at one end of a long, arching bridge, with all the traffic going away from us. The red tail lights appearing to go fast then slowing in the distance.
