The buildings and the school grounds will be transferred to Juab County, Nephi City, and the Nephi LDS Stake. Juab County will take possession of the high school building. The county plans to refurbish the building for use as a county complex. It paid $20,000 to the school board for the building. Nephi City will take posession of the former vocational building and the gymnasium. The city gave the school board four acres of land in its industrial park as payment for the structures. The school board will probably use the industrial park site as a new home for the Nebo Training Center. The school board traded approximately 2 Vt acres of land on the upper portion of the campus to the Nephi LDS Stake for the stakes seminary building, which the board will use as an office building. The stake will probably use the site for a new church two-bloc- k building. The board concluded that the plan as presented had good public support. It authorized the superintendent of schools to inform the parties of the transfer and to begin work on the agreements necessary to make the transfer. The board also reviewed efforts to secure funding for a new training center. The present building is not satisfactory, the board says. The training center has also been using the old high school vocational building, but it will soon be transferred to the city. In other business, the board: Heard a report on the artist in residence program at Juab High School, which was recently completed.

Nephi City is in good financial shape says Salt Lake auditing firm Nephi City is in very good financial condition compared to two or three years ago, the city council was told at its regular meeting last Wednesday night. Warm wishes for a bright future, our gratitude for letting us serve you . . . that's our New Year message to you! The report was made by Earl Andrews of the accounting firm of Roberts, Parker, and Andrews. One of the reasons for the citys newly found financial health is the use of its computerized general ledger system, Andrews told the council. The computer system works so well that it will be used as a model for systems in West Jordan, Tooele, and Brigham City. Another reason the city is doing better financially is that idle city funds have been put to work to earn interest. Getting interest from city funds requires more work for the city staff, Andrews said, but the extra income produced by these funds has made the effort worth it. The city has also learned how much working capital to keep on hand and had ended overdrafts. Andrews had several suggestions for the better operation of the city. He thinks the city recorder should be given an assistant, that every cash amount received should be receipted, and Christmas-Ev- e fire does little damage to home wail of fire sirens in Nephi made many peoples hearts run cold, but for The Christmas-Ev- e little reason, it turns out. Fire department volunteers arrived at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Eldon Belliston at 610 South Second East to find a chimney fire in progress. The fire department received the call at approximately 11:45 p.m. According to Nephi Fire Chief Boyd Park, the fire was started in the homes chimney when Christmas wrapping paper was burned in the homes stove or fire of the fireplace. The extra-ho- t caused the creosote on the paper inside of the chimney to catch fire. The fire department checked the roof and attic for fires and put out the chimney fire. Nothing was hurt at the Belliston home but there was some smoke damage.

The roads were icy. said Ander-'ip gin Trooper Anderson said that a number of cars had gone off the road near the accident scene, and that the occupants of the cars were attempting to get them back on the road.
