Remember you heard it here first. Locally In Sheridan, the federal government will reconsider its decision to locate a prison there. But not to worry, an enterprising businessman will convert the newly con- structed prison into a profitable honeymoon resort. He'll bill it as the only resort that gives young couples a true idea of what married life is really like. In Willamina, the school board will beg outgoing Su- perintendent Mike Wsiaki to stay on at least another year because it could not find a replacement with better public relations skills. Letters detailing the 30 percent increase in Willamina water rates have been mailed to all city water users, the mayor told the city council during the regular meeting last week. The new rates, which went into ef- fect Jan. 1, increase the basic cost of water to a private household by $3 per month, from $10 to $13 ($11 for senior citizens), for the first 750 cu- bic feet of water used. There is a charge of 58 cents for each additional 100 cubic feet used. Industrial users, as well as resi- dential and commercial water users outside the city limits, will pay $19. 80 per month, and 85 cents per 100 cubic feet of water over the basic 750.
