"The Peace Corps sent the infor- mation to us to pass on," said re- turned volunteers Thelma and Mel McKibbens of Sheridan. The McKibbens spent two years in Micronesia as Peace Corps volun- teers. They both have some wonder- ful stories to tell of the time they spent on Tinian and Saipan. "Peace Corps volunteers can real- ly make a difference," Mrs. McKib- bans said. "And this call is for only half the usual amount of time." The request is to fill an immediate and urgent need for teacher educat- ors in the Phillipines. The Peace Corps is specifically looking for teachers with five years experience at the secondary level in math, science or English, or five years ex- parlance at the primary level in any discipline. The time frame in which to apply is short. The Peace Corps want applications by Jan. 15. And training for the assignment starts in early April. For further information, either contact the McKibbens at 843-2057 or call toll-free 800-424-8580, ext. 293.

Haugeberg said a highway solu- tion must be found before ongoing residential and business construction in Newberg/Dundee makes a solu- tion impossible. "If we get to a point where all the areas for highway solutions are filled with houses, the cost will become prohibitive, and we become literally landlocked," he said. "The rest of the world isn't going to wait for us." Haugeberg is also concerned about the nature of development ad- jacent to the corridor. "Another important goal near- term is to make sure future develop- ment doesn't diminish the ability of that highway to carry people," he said. "You hear people continually decry the construction of new free- ways.

The 38-foot by 240-foot barn was insured for $50,000, but will cost $110,000 to replace, he added.

The attendant found the spill when he came to work and immediately called the fire department. BEST BI our present highways. I've suggest- ed intergovernmental meetings bet- ween cities and counties to talk about land use planning." Although the Newberg/Dundee area is at the top of its list, the Park- way Committee has its eye on the en- tire county. "Along with Newberg/Dundee, our committee will be looking from one end of the county to the other," Haugeberg said. Haugeberg emphasized the impor- tance of bringing the weight of the county's consensus to bear when ad- dressing ODOT. "If these highway projects are go- ing to succeed it will be because all the governmental enities, the busi- ness enities and the people who live along this corridor come to a consen- sus of what ought to happen," he said.

The chief explained the fire de- partment closed off the area while service station employees cleaned up the sPill. "They used special absorbent rags to get the top layer. Any that soaked through the ground was dug up," Eckhardt said. The cleanup was completed Sun- day, according to the chief.

ODOT is not going to spend money on projects where there is disagree- ment, because they've got plenty of projects where there is agreement. They're just not going to involve themselves in family feuds. "It is the ability to get a consensus from one end of the corridor to the other that gives us major clout," Haugeberg added. Hageberg said the committee plans to come up with a proposal to ODOT by late spring or early sum- mer. ODOT will hold public hearings on its six-year plan early in 1990. The Parkway Committee is com- prised of county government and bu- siness leaders, and its mission is to purpose projects to and obtain fund- ing from the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT).
