Charles Fisher of Union said his son Mark arrived in Saudi Arabia approximately one month ago from Fort Bragg, North Caro- lina. He is serving with the Army 504 82nd Airborne, I'hlngs are pretty rough over there," Mr Fisher said. "It's awfully hot, and they're into the sandstorm sea- son, too. One of the biggest problems I see Is with the mail service. I can get a letter from him in about ten days, but Pve sent quite a few, and he just doesn't seem to be getting many of them. That's been very frus- trating, and I believe people need to write their congressmen to ask why this is such a problem. One of the greatest things our boys need is to hear from us. It's awfully hot, and there's not much for them to do." Mark is single and is a Private S.

Mike's wife Julie lives at the Marine baax at Cherry Point, near Havelock, North Carolina. @ said she is also concerned about the slow mail. "It's very hard on him, I'm sure. From the letters [ received from hlm, he's not hav- ing it easy. He said it's dull. with no ergertainment--about all they do for that is to play football at night.

Mrs Longanacre said she received a letter from her son three weeks ago. "He told how hot it was. He also said how uncertain things were.

It was out of respect for him that I named this the "Klncaid Hydro Project," Mr Tuekwiller says. Most of the technology Mr Tuckwiller employs comes from his own fertile creativity and na- tive abilities. He is approaching this proposed power plant much llke the original builders of mills in this area did in the early 19th Raymond Tuckwiller perse- veres. He continues the long and laborious application process in order to fulfill hls dream of power from Muddy Creek.

Plans call for the re-construc- tion of the Rookstool MRII dam to its original configuration. Part of the dam has already been rebuilt and Mr Tuckwiller spends three days a week at the dam taking readings on the stream required by the federal government. "Assuming all goes well we'll get our license in September 1991. We will be in production by September 1993," Mr Tuck- wilier says. Once the license is granted, actual construction of the wicket gates and power house can begin.

Sheets of tin were then placed over the top to retain the heat. The pie was finished in one hour and ten minutes, after which approxi- mately 200 people sampled It. About one-half was eaten; the remainder was thrown away later in the day. Russell Jessee, one of those who sampled the pie, said. "It tasted good. The crust was thick, and the filling was thin, but it tasted just fine." Volunteers, most of whom were of elementary and junior high age, told what they thought of the joint effort. "Never in my life have I done anything like this." seventh-grader John Perry of Maflinton said. "It was a lot of fun--kids like to get their hands messy and pat the dough."
