L * From page 1A - SUPERVISORS congressional representatives to work for a return of the federal rev- enue sharing program that existed prior to 1983. Such funds would go a long way to building a new jail, he noted. Sub-division regulation All four candidates also are in agreement that the county will need to address possible rural sub-divi- sion regulations, even to the point of looking at county zoning. However, News they differ in approach and extent with DeL'ong noting that the county "needs some type of regulations about rural sub-divisions." Schneider said some kind of guidelines are needed, "but not like Johnson County where they tell you just what kind of house you can build." "We would developed a sub-divi- sion regulation to fit Washington County," said Stout, stressing it is an issue that needs study and careful consideration. Murphy agreed that the issue has to be examined, and stressed that "this is an agricultural community," that urbanizing rural land is not a good move. Taxes All four voiced concerns about taxes, especially in view of this year's large increase brought about by state-ordered reevaluation and a 13 percent equalization order. The need to meet existing needs, as well as providing for unexpected costs was noted, particularly in the areas of mental health and other social services. Stout also explained that the county has to have a carry- over (from fiscal year to fiscal year) to cover the three months "when we receive tax money." All four ranked budget planning and tight fiscal measures as impor- tant. All four candidates will take part in the Kalona News sponsored debate set for Monday, October 23, in the downtown Chamber of Commerce Building. However, the time has changed to 6:30 to 9 p.m., to permit additional time for the four Iowa State House candidates to take part.

I had to express my gratitude to the people at Mercy?' - Marlin Peiffer Washington, Iowa i  i i Exceptional Medic#u,. Extraordinary, Care. Marlin Peiffer is a man of few words, but he has a lot to say about the care he received at Mercy Iowa City. After being diagnosed with colon cancer, Marlin underwent surgery and immediately began a year-long course of chemotherapy. And while that year took its toll, what Marlin remembers most is the remarkable oncologists, advanced technology and upbeat, caring staff who gave him the motivation to keep fighting day after day. To learn more about Mercy's oncology services, talk with your family doctor or call Mercy On Call at !-800-358-2767.
