"They're a nice bunch of peo- ple." Jaws of Life: The board approved purchase of a hose reel and brackets to make the Jaws of Life more quick- ly accessible at accident scenes. With the new set-up, the hose won't get snarled up as it does when coiled in the bottom of its storage unit on the fire truck. Eckhardt told the board there were two prices for hose reels: $1,920 for a chrome unit; and $800 (installed) for a less impressive painted one. He added that money is in the budget to cover the cost of either one. "We don't need chrome," said Bill Monroe, board member. The other members agreed. The painted hose reel and brackets should be in place in six to eight weeks.

"We've never used Alar," said Jeanne Morrison who works at the orchard making apple juice. She said the orchard had received a few inquiries about whether it used Alar. There has been no reduction in demand for E & E products, she ad- ded. Most of the orchards apples and juice is sold to area stores. Some is also sold direct to individuals who stop at the Red Prairie Road busi- ness. One sample out of 25 apple samples tested by the Oregon Department of Agriculture during the first phase of a four week survey tested positive for Alar residue. The single positive sample had an Alar residue level of 1.5 parts per million (ppm), or less than 10 percent of the federal residue level of 20 ppm for fresh apples. The positive sample was taken from a lot of Rome Beauty variety apples packed by Snokist Growers of Yakima, distributed under the "First Prize" brand name and sampled at Roth's IGA in Woodburn, Oregon.
