When the inventory of the Tintic Area the description was taken in 1976-7was as follows: wood Site XVIII: Two-pos- t e feet in forty-fivabout headframe, lf one-hatwo and some height Located miles east of Eureka near Big Hill. Dates about the early 1900s. Significance: One of the rare . remaining early headframes of the Tintic District. As you can see in the picture, the impressive headframe is gone! We are sad.tp see this happen. Hie remnants of the mining activity in our area are really important. Those of us who live here and see them every day tend to fail to see the forest for the trees. Other mining areas in the country have dismantled their ghostly, headframes. The Tintic area is one of the last places where the past is so well documented by historic sites. scDuooi Blonds 100 operations Advanced Health Systems (AHS), was signed by Juab County Commissioners at their recent regular session.

Eureka request The commission discussed a request by Eureka for the transference of property deeds for two pieces of land on Main Street for the construction of a new fire station. The commissioners unanimously agreed to conduct a title search to make sure this property is clear before further action is taken. As a result of a review of county roads, the commission agreed to grade and improve an existing road near Eureka to provide landowners better access to their property. An oil company which is doing some drilling in the area, asked permission to improve the Sage Valley road in Mills. There is a need for gravel and the installation of three permanent cattle guards in order for heavy equipment to reach the work site. An ongoing problem in conjunction with an 86-lsubdivision, located 30 miles south of Nephi, known as Sevier proved by themselves or by the county zoning and planning commission. There are few improved roads at the site and since services, such as power, water hookups, etc., are some distance from the area, the commissioners felt there was a need to meet with the representative of the tract.
