Area engineer for the bureau of Reclamation's Salem offic% John Mangan, attended a dinner and meeting with councilmen to outline possibilities on the city's obtaining additionalwat er in the future. Di.ccn'sen centerq n *b BureauPs Red Prairie Projec% on which studies have been underway to determine feasi- bility of the project. It was pointed out how far planning has gone on the project and dif- ferent methods Sheridan could use in obtaining water from the project dam when completed. Mangan answered questions put to him by members of the council and Mayor Mel Agee, as well as Chamber of Com- merce President Art Hebert, who also attended the meet- ing. When the big irrigation pro- ject is completed, Mangan said, probably the best way for Sheri- dan to obtain water is to pur- chase it at wholesale cost right at the reservoir. It then could be piped into the city and used by city residents after proces- sing through a treatment plant. Another possible method to bring water from the damsite also was discussed. This would be to have water from the dam dumped into Mill Creek and for this flow to be picked up by the city and passed through a treatment plant for use by local citizens. Mangan pointed out that any water from the dam probably is "about I0 years" away. Plans for this water are being made because of the prohability of Sheridan and this area's growth in the next several years. The water would be in addition to the 450,000 gallons per day that can be brought from the city's supplied to the city, approxi- mately three times the amount available from the springs. The proposed Buck Hollow project near Willamina also was touched on at the meeting, with Mangan pointing out this is being figured as a supplemental project to "catch additional areas" not accessible from Red Regular monthly business session of the Sheridan Chamber of Commerce next Monday noon will bring reports of more than 52 paid chamber memberships and a treasurer's report of more than $1000 in the bank, according to Presi- dent Art Hebert.

Sheridan, which placed fourth get calls for expenditure of $412,736 during the coming school year. He also pointed out this means about a 10 mill increase in the tax levy because of heavy reduction in state funds. He said the millage rate in the district would have been "exactly the same" if avail- able revenues had been the same. Public hearing on the pro- posed document is scheduled for Monday. April 6, Stivers said, and the budget will be on the ballot for voter approval in May. Budget for the district last year was $391,377, compared to the $412,736 one proposed for the coming fiscal year. Stivers pointed out the $21, 400 difference would have been handled at the same millage rate if revenues had remained the same. The 12 1/2 per cent reduction in funds from state sources has brought the money due the dis- trict from $206,473.79 last year additional millage levy. All school districts took the same percentage reduction, he said. Total evaluation in the Sheri- dan district is about $2 1/2 million, the school leader said, so each mill levied will raise about $2500. It looks as though Sheridan will carry a 92.7 mil- lage rate this year, compared to 82.7 last year. Even then, it was pointed out, this is only a four mill increase over the past truce years. Stlvers announced April 4 as the last day to file petitions for candidacy for the school board post which Board Chairman Art Hebert has indicated he will not seek again. Petitions may be obtained from District Clerk Edna Moore at the superinten- dent's office at Faulconer school. The school board is consider- ing more than a dozen applica- tions seeking the superinten- dent's post to be vacated by Stivers after this school year. Hebert said application forms to approximately $177,073.79 have been received from coming forthisyear. Hepointed several qualified school men to out the district has to make up take over the superintendent's this $29,400 loss through an duties. P tW" artans os tnntng Season Despite Losses Finishing the basketball sea- son on a losing note s the Sheri- dan High Spartans still emerged from a tough campaign with a winning record. After 24 games the Sparts won 13 and lost 11, including their final four outings against their season-long antagonists, Dayton and Nestucca. Coach in league standings, also took fourth in the playoff tourna- ment, dropping the final game to Nestucca. 56-52. (Sun Photo 111) Bob Close's squad was unable to best either the Pirates or the Bobcats in three encounters with each squad. Spartan efforts in the Yawama league playoffs in McMinnville last Thursday and Saturday nights saw them end up in fourth place, lust where they finished in final league stand- tags. Sheridan tried to slow the game with Dayton to a walk and dropped the encounter 33-16, after trailing 10-5 at halftime. The defeat, coupled with Yamhlll-Carlton's win over the league's second-place Nestucca Bobcats, brought the Spart "5" face to face with their other nemesis in the playoff for third- place. After going through a cold shooting period in the second and third panels, the Sparts finally caught fire and made a good run for the win before falling 56-52, the closest they had come to Nestucca in the three meetings.
