THURSDAY, AUGUST 2, 1973 THE RIO GRANDE HERALD PAGE 19 I 1 'I i I- h L _ It May Be Just a Small Town, but It's All His LOTTS CREEK, Iowa — Realtor Oliver Carlson has bought himself the near-ghost town of Lotts Creek for $4,400 and plans to pump some life into it and into his pocketbook. The decision came when the Algona, Iowa, man was having coffee with a fellow realtor who suggested, "Why don't you buy Lotts Creek." That was in August 1971. Car- lson bought one side of the street then and recently com- pleted purchase of the other side of the block-long "down- town" area of this town near the Minnesota border. His six buildings include a former general store, hardware store, locker plant, feed store, creamery turned into a cheese factory, and what once was a buttermaker's residence. Carlson, who allows that some folks "think I'm a little eccentric," says he also owns Oak Lake near Algona along with four other persons. It's a 100-acre sports oasis for snow- mobiling and skiing if yo...

THURSDAY. AUGUST 2, 1973 THE RIO GRANDE HERALD PAGE 21 !* u • A- has lost last court battle The State Board of Regis- tration for Professional En- gineers received notification on July 17, 1973 of the successful termination of the most pro- tracted legal suit in the Board's thirty-six year history. In 1961 the Board revoked the license of Homer Trimble to practice engineering in Texas. This action was based on sworn testimony of two city officials at Kermit, Texas, where Trimble then resided, alleging he offered a bribe of 85,000 in seeking a city contract. Trimble then engaged in a long series of legal appeals, going several times to the Texas Sup- reme Court. His appeals did not challenge the original alle- gations but were based on pro- cedural questions of due pro- cess. Trimble, who once resided at Austin and San Diego, Texas before moving to Rio Grande City, retained his license while his attorneys pursued le- gal maneuvers in the courts. After Trimble failed in ap- peals to t...

THURSDAY, AUGUST 9, 1973 THE RIO GRANDE HERALD PAGE 2 Lounging on a raft in a swimming pool one hot summer day, I spotted one particular cloud. There were other clouds in the sky, but I watched this one. It was small and compact, complete in it- self. and apart from the others. As I watched, it shifted, grew, and spread out across the sky, completely changing its appearance and its relation to the other clouds around it. * * * * Our lives are not unlike this cloud. When we are young, our worlds are small, and we are totally engrossed in that world of self. But as we grow, we begin to relate to others, to touch those around us, and our lives are thus changed completely. The more lives we touch with ours, the larger our world becomes, and the more meaningful our existence seems. * * * * Mr. and Mrs. Arturo Montemayor Jr., have returned from a trip to Chicago. They spent a week there visiting their daughter, Ara- celi. Araceli, married in April, lives in Chicago with her hus- band, Rod...

He mailed out phony invoices to a number of businessmen, billing them for ads they had never ordered, and waited for the money to roll in. Some money did. But so did two federal investigators, who haled Eddie into court on a charge of "using the mails to de- fraud." In short order he landed in jail, following the path of countless get-rich-quick artists who have run afoul of the United States Post Office. Under our legal system, most crimes are local. Robbery and riot, murder and mayhem ordi- narily come under the jurisdic- tion of local governments. But mail fraud is federal busi- ness, because the Constitution gives exclusive control of the postal system to the federal gov- ernment. Of course, to constitute the crime, the fraudulent scheme must include som...

The panel Is heading Into the flnal week of the first phase of Its hearings after compiling a massive, tangled transcript of testimony full of conflicts and already more than 7,000 pages long. Congress recessed for a one- month summer vacation last Friday, but the committee Is staying behind, working long days, to finish questioning three more witnesses.
