New Athletic Field At East By Jonathan Wright Several area businesses and Individuals recently volunteered labor and financial assistance to build a new athletic field at Greenbrler East High School (GEHS) in Falrlea. The field is expected to be in use next spring. According to GEHS principal Charles Carney, soccer and girls' softball teams will use the new facility. Girls' softball has' been organized at the school three years, but no soccer team is cur- renfly active. "We're looking at the possibil- ity next year of offering it," Mr Carney said. "We'll probably be presenting a proposal to the Board of Education to get to started." Mr Carney said local groups interested in the initia- tion of a soccer program at GEHS will likely fund much of the program at the start, but the Board of Education would hope- fully fund a coach. The new field occupies I-I/2 acres of a seven-acre plot owned by the Spartan Boosters Asso- ciation, a private group which supports athletics at GEHS. One of the group's ongoing projects is the construction of an athletic building at the rear of Spartan Stadium. I Introductory prices starting as low as 5 yr. Warranty Reg.

"For eight years now, it has been an ongoing battle with Ad- ministrations past and present to help veterans get the benefits and services they have earned and deserve," says Mr Staggers.

"It's a matter of priorities, We can make essential Investments in jobs, education, roads, heath care, and at the same time reduce the Federal deficit.
