North Canton To Receive $8$f0M For Ditch Cleaning According to Gary Connor, Stark County Hydro- lie Engineer, North Canton will receive more than •half of Stark County's 1977 ditch allocation of $169,000. Stark County Commissioners have allocated $85, 000 to go with $50,000 appropriated by North Canton City Council recently to clean a ditch and repair two railroad bridges near Glen- wood St.SW where residents were' troubled with severe flooding last July. The other major allocation is $20,000 to complete some $22,000 in work done last year on the Fairhope ditch tiiNii^gnuieatranti^. ship where # culvert, under US 62 is-beins leered. Mr. Connor said that last year the bridge allocation was more than $250,000 and permitted cleaning 12 1/2 miles of ditches. This \s the largest amount of ditching in one year in the county's history. Mr. Connor added that it . was difficult tochoosefrom a list of some 30 large jobs which would cost $10,000 or more and about 40 smaller jobs. He also stated that it would probably take about $1 million to do all of them and that the money just isn't available. Connor said the ones JjbesHAiW^r^ihp^e: bellved,. to affect the most people and. the ones to which wecounjty'.' • had'committed itself.

Regula Reports The inauguration of Jimmy Carter as our next president is center stage here this week. The "People's Inaugural", as this year's ceremony is being called, Is being scaled down in various ways and is expected to cost the taxpayer less than recent inaugurals. This cost- conscious planning may well be directly related to Mr. Carter's declared intention to balance the federal budget by 1981. I definitely will support our new president in his efforts to obtain a balanced budget, difficult as it will be. For years now, we have heard talk about balancing the budget and even of ending a fiscal year with a surplus. But it hasn't happened —not since 1969 and only twice since 1957. It will take some real doing—some belt tightening, some national self-denial, some cutting back on programs, elimination of others, better management of still others, and a lot of saying no to new and expanded programs. Because of my appointment last week to the House Budget Committee, I willbe in a position to assist the President achieve his goal. I think it important for this country to balance its budget and half the runaway spending of the federal government. On this issue I am in agreement with President -elect Carter. As amemberoftheHouse Appropriations Committee, I have worked for fiscal responsibility, as I see it, on the part of our government. Although this - committee has wide scope when it comes to .finding, lederal programs, theBudget Committee has even wider jurisdiction. As a member of 'ioth committees, I will be considering the funding of all areas of the federal government. The House Budget Committee is a relatively new committee and is the result of Congress'decision to re- assume some of its constitutional authority, which had been usurped over a period of time by the Executive Branch. The Importance of the federal budget hardly canbe overemphasized. It has been described as the nation's principal tool for determining governmental goals and economic policy, and it touches nearly every facet of American Ufe. Most adult residents of the 16th Congressional District, and Americans every* where tor that matter, have personal knowledge of the value of the family budget, and the desirability of balancing it. The House Budget Committee and the Senate Budget Committeehavebecome (Continued to Page 2) jkjJCikikjkjkjkjfc (Continued to Page 2) Meets Tomorrow On Thursday, Jan. 20th, the park and recreation board will meet at 7 p.m. All' parties are invited to attend a special showing given by Mr. Thomas H.
