The postal service, they said, hadn't made enough effort to secure one of several avail- able downtown locations and was attempting to force the site on the community. At a meeting of the city council, Hulett said that the postal service tried to locate the building down- town. "We examined every piece of property, including the mountainous and a weedy spot on Ivy Street," she said. The city planning commission eventually approved the site and preliminary plans for the building, submitting them for city council approval. The council, however, changed the plans, increasing the size of the lot, turning the building sideways on the lot and adding a driveway for a drive-up mailbox. Because the arrangement had earlier been rejected by the postal service, the changes were interpreted by some as a move to kill the project. The changes drew an exasperated letter from postal officials. Doumit declined to describe the site plan as it will appear in the solicitation package. Purchase of the property, owned by Alice Propes of Dallas, and final aplxoval of the plans will be the builder's responsi- bility, he said. "We try to stay out of local politics," Doumit said. : reserve officers POlice officers are needed police depart- ing to Chief Frank H. he hoped to add up to to the city's reserve will be directed by Lyon.

"Prior to the incident, confidential inmate sources informed FCI Sheridan staff that inmate Stein was planning to leave the federal prison camp," Palmquist said in a press release. Using that information, the Bureau's Special Operations Response Team (SORT) began a stake out March 5, the day before the escape actually occurred. Here's how Palmquist described the escape and arrests: At 6:47 p.m. March 6 two irimates were seen walking between the sewer lagoons adjacent to the prison camp. SORT team members fol- lowed the inmates as they headed toward Highway 18. That's when one of the inmates' wives drove her vehicle down the westbound ramp of Highway 18 at a slow pace, honked the horn twice and then sped off. The vehicle was followed but the SORT team con- firmed no inmates were in it. The search was called off for a while because the SORT team assisted in a special head count at the prison camp. The manhunt started again about 7:40 p.m. adja- cent to the camp. About 15 minutes later, members of the SORT team gave chase to the same vehicle after it slowed down again on the westbound ramp of Highway 18, honked twice and sped off. The vehicle was slopped by Yam- hill County sheriff's deputies about three miles west of McMinnville. It was determined that it belonged to one of the escaped inmates' wives. The inmates were apprehended shortly after. They were located with the use of night vision goggles worn by Bureau staff. The two inmates, the 6th and 7th escapees since the prison camp began operating in 1989, were placed in detention cells in the medium-security prison. "We've gotten the message out to the inmates that we are listening to confidential sources to reduce this problem," Palmquist said. The two-night stake out, the use of night vision goggles and calling the county's 9-1-1 number also played a key role in helping appre- hend the two inmates last week, he said. Two inmates who walked away from the camp last month, however, are still at large. Sheridan council views goals and land purchase A list of goals for the city will be reviewed by the Sheridan city coun- cil at its March 18 meeting. The meeting begins at 7:30 p.m. in the library conference room. Also on the agenda is the pro- posed purchase of nearly an acre of property and a single-family home behind the Sears building. The council is considering the land for a future parking lot and boat ramp.
