Vernon, Ill., man, Gregory Johnson, who had been living in Gillette, died April 29 in a Rapid City, S.D., hospital as a result of injuries he received in an accident April 16 on U.S. 14 just east of Carlile. Johnson was a passenger in a car driven by Thomas Jensen, 20, Gillette. Wyoming Highway Pa- trolman Wayne Ludwig, who in- vestigated the accident, said the men were westbound when the car missed a curve, leR the road and skidded 300 feet before being airborne for 85 feet landing on its top throwing both men from the vehicle. Ludwig said the car was again airborne for about another 50 feet, rolling two or three more times, going off a 50-foot cliff and landing on its wheels in the Belle Fourche River. Ludwig said Jensen has been released from the hospital and has been cited for driving with an expired license and speeding too fast for conditions.

Allan Temple, representing the Rapid City, S.D. engineering firm in charge of plans for the pool, reviewed the plans and dis- cussed the lift station determined to be necessary. Temple said it doesn't look like the pool will be a bere~lirety this summer, but should ady for the 1981 season. Following the council session, Temple met with members of the swimming pool committee. City bar owners attended the meeting and protested the pro- posed increase in the liquor license fee. Earlier the council said a public meeting would be held regarding the matter and told the bar owners this would be done. Ralph Go~son discussed the well control facility and said work on its construction is to begin in the near future. Goodson re- ceived approval from the council to file an amended plat with the corrected legal description for the Humphrey addition. The council accepted the res- ignation of Paul Sharp from the Land Use Planning Commission. Sharp indicated in his letter that he had served as chairman of the commission for the past five years and he felt it was time for a change. A letter was read from Marion Thompson asking why the name of the street in front of her home had been changed, why some- thing isn't being done about the odor near the North Pole Locker from meat scraps, and why the street continuing up to the canyon area isn't being watered to pre- vent dust. The council noted that an ordinance had been passed some 13 years ago to change the name of the street in question, agreed to check with the locker plant about a cold storage unit, and noted that the street is being watdred but the amount of traffic contributes to the dust factor. The council approved the land use planning recommendation to insert a section in the present mobile home ordinance to allow the general commissioner to issue {Cont. on Page I2) 25, Americans awak- that an attempt to rescue the hostages held in Iran since last November.
