We were waiting for our next assignment so we spent our time learning how to set up our radio Station. I had become Chief Petty Officer just three months before, so had much to learn the other Chief had been in the Navy more than 16 years so was smart and wise in Navy ways. All over Barbers Point there were huge stockpiles of supplies for units that were just forming, back in the states. Our outfit had been issued a minimum of tools. With 150 men, any loss or breakage would have been serious. But the Chief looked around and came up with two five gallon cans of straight-grai- n alcohol (Medicinal quality). We tried every way we could think of to make it drinkable. Half water, burnt sugar, caramelized sugar and powdered fruit drinks, but nothing made it palatable. But, for trading, it was worth its weight in Gold. On Okinawa, our huge communication bans set out like sore thumbs. We attempted to dig trenches for them but under the soil was Coral, impervious to pick and shovel. But the Chief had the answer, he filled a quart bottle with alcohol and visited a Construction Battalion (CB). He came back with an operator and the largest of bulldozers. It sliced through the Coral and made a trench that we could drive the large vans into. The Chief also located 3 powerful radio receivers. One he to gave the Officers, one to the Unit and one was for our tent. On Okinawa when the sirens sounded we had a very short time to get before the bombs began to drop. But, with the to the receiver tuned to the frequency used by the picket boats, we had two or three minutes to get dressed and to the hole. One night, the enemy messed things up by coming in from the opposite direction. What should have been two or more minutes was that night in our skivvies. "Right Now!". We hit the When we left Barbers Point I was in charge of personnel, the Chief supervised the loading of our equipment aboard a transport. Some foolish person parked his jeep near the ship so the Chief loaded it aboard too. He gave it to the Unit, the Officers and men used it for the next year. A few weeks later a message came asking all Units and Motor Pools to search for a Jeep with a specified motor number. It must not have bee;i found for in April of the next year, that same message was sent out again and just before the war ended it was sent out for the third time. We didn't understand why there was such a fuss. There were thousands of Jeeps in the Pacific Area. This person must have been very, very angry and wanted revenge. He surely, must have been a high ranking Officer. After all, it wasn't so much that it had been stolen, it had been borrowed and put to a good use for a year and then was returned to the Government at the end of the war. -A Track Medley Relay - 3rd Place Lindsay Barnes, Rachel Holm, Jennifer Netto, Nisha Livingston Boys Dustin Whittaker 1 1th - 3200 run Nisha Livingston Craig Barnes 8th - 300 Hurdles Craig Barnes 8th -- 1 0 Hurdles -4 XI 00 Relay 2nd place 4X400 Relay -- 6th Place Kristen Bailey, Sarah Mayer, Rachel Holm, Hailee Dustin Whittaker, Craig Barnes, Nick Schofield, Willden Todd Ecklcy Coach Hoagland says he is veiy pleased with the season, and sends thanks to his assistant coaches Adrianne Whittaker and Cathy Palmer.

Mayor Mary Wiseman said she was unable to smell the hog odor Saturday morning, and was irate at the suggestion. She said she had ridden her bicycle out toward the pig farm the previous day and there was no odor. She told council members that she had called a number of people last Saturday who said they hadn't Councilmen smcllcd a thing.

Jesse Riker, Chad Pender, Some senior students at Beaver High School were concerned about the flag flying over their school because it is old, ragged, and dirty. These young people wanted a beautiful new flag to fly proudly next to their new high school, so they wrote letters of request to Congressman Jim Hansen asking for a flag that had flown over the White House in Washington DC. Congressman Hansen answered the class stating they would have to pay for the flag. Each class member gladly paid $ 1 .00 for the new flag. About two weeks ago the new flag arrived, along with a certificate stating the flag had flown over the White House on March 25, 1997. The class voted to have Josh Shotwell, who is a Marine, present the flag to the school at the Honors Assembly that will be held on Wednesday, May 21, at 1 :30 p.m. The students are looking forward to flying their new flag Graduation Day, May 29, 1997. County Assessor Max Limb says there is no word yet on the centrally assessed properties. The worst case scenario would be for all centrally assessed properties to follow Wiltel in the protest. Depending on outcome of negotiations between the Utah Association of Counties and the State Tax Commission, local property owners may be saddled with heavier tax burden. Limb says the cities are just about to the legal limit of their taxing capability to pay for services, and may suffer if centrally assessed revenue drops. M.H.S.
