On January 19 the Counsel held a hearing about the Com- munity Development Block Grant (CDBG) program with its emphasis on helping low to mod- erate income people overcome poverty, through grants in five categories: housing and neigh- borhood renewal, public infra- structure, planning, economic de- velopment and a category called "neighborhood stabilization".

We learned CDBG is funded by the federal government, and administered by the state. Over 28 years CDBG has awarded more than 120 million dollars to Montana towns with populations less than 50,000 and with 51% of their residents' income at "low to moderate" levels. This is an av- erage of $4,285,714.29 per year, flowing to Montana towns. CDBG grants provide Round- up citizens an annual opportunity to obtain funds for projects that could raise the spirit of our town. The lack of ideas from citizens at the January 19 hearing, in my opinion, was due to our unfamil- iarity with the process. The City Counsel failed to educate the public prior to, or even during, the hearing. People can get educated, how- ever. People can assess the natu- ral and social advantages of our small rural town and envision CDBG projects that promote re- sponsible economic change. Yes, many of us would agree that an investment in "water rehabili- tation" is needed, but does our thirst for clean water outweigh all else, especially our crucial need for sound businesses and revitalized neighborhoods? =Please, let us inform ourselves and breathe some energy into the City Counsel's deliberations. A good place to start is at the next public hearing on this issue. The next public hearing is set for Tuesday March 2nd at the city office (date may change). Any person not able to attend the pub- lic hearing may submit in writ- ing idea(s) to the Roundup City Counsel. Troy Evans Dear Editor, Blip-blip move your lip. I find the idea that global warming i s caused entirely by our burning of fossil fuels to be an idea without merit. You must realize our weather is subject to change on a short- term basis--sometimes on a daily basis or even perhaps on weekly basis--sometimes warm and sometimes cooler. Climate, like weather, is also subject to change, but in a much longer time frame. About 17,000 years ago it was thought the largest single ice sheet south of Canada covered The following cases were heard at the Roundup City Court during the month of January: Domenic James Simondi, dis- orderly conduct, $185 fine; Sherry Lynn Dodd, failure to carry proof of insurance, $135 fine; Wade James Granbois, criminal posses- sion of dangerous drugs, $335 fine and jail time and criminal posses- sion of drug paraphernalia, $335 fine and jail time; Karla Zaida Freasier, MIP, $385 fine; Jacob William Gantner, disorderly con- duct, $185 fine and jail time. Kaitty Jo Finch, MIP, $385 fine; Jessica L. Ayers, disorderly conduct, $185 fine; Sheila Marie Riggs, operating vehicle without interlock, driving while license suspended and DUI (fourth of- fence), all three cases transferred to another court; Fred Peter Hoff- man, stop sign violation, $85 fine; Fallon Elizabeh Brown, speeding, $65 fine; Christopher Joseph Holmes, failure to yield when entering highway, $85 fine and operating without liability insur- ance in effect, $285 fine. Ronald George Ruse, speed- ing, $55 fine; Glenda K. Bern- hardt, DUI, $685 fine; Dorothy Redel McCleary, failure to yield to vehicle on right, $85 fine; Ann Butenhoff Tuss, speeding, $55 fine; Rebica Bryant, parking violation, $15 fine; Cody James Kinn, failure to yield to vehicle on right, $85 fine and seatbelt violation, $20 fine; Jonathan Lee Pitts, criminal mischief, deferred prosecution; Christopher Joseph Holmes, careless driving, $85 fine; Alberto F. Sanchez, DUI, $685 fine; Amanda Lynn Rich- ards, disorderly conduct, $185 fine and assault, $335 fine.

But some 4,000 years later most of the ice was melted and plants were be- ginning to grow where only ice had existed before. Today nlost of the entire region is covered by vegetation. Climate like the weather is also subject to being sometimes wann- er and then sometimes cooler. I refer to these little warmer and these little cooler episodes as blips in which climate shows weather like symptoms of warming and cooling. Scientists are not in complete agreement as to what causes these climatic changes to come about. However, when push comes to shove--I don't believe every scientist would agree all global warming from 17,000 years ago to present day was caused by man burning fossil fuels. Oh, golly gee, I'm so stupid. I can't figure out the greatest blip of all. If our government collects a tax on fossil fuels after the fuel global warming? I really need help to understand especially when global warming is caused mostly by natural factors other than burning fossil fuels.

Member NCUA. !!'! ! !! Hi Folks, Another strong sale here at the auction on this second sale of February. We saw just under 500 head of cattle this week, including 60 head of bred cows. The bred sale sparked interest, even with the limited offering, and we topped those middle-age solid mouth cows at $8.35. A few bred heifers crossed the auc- tion block, most-of them "lighter," weighing under 10(X)#, and they sold in the $770-810 range, while the short term bred cows landed between $525-625. There was quite a bit of buyer in- terest in the feeder cattle this week, and we called that market steady with last week's trade. The grass cattle continue to sell strong, and depending on the weight, those steers will bring from $105 to $125 cwt, with those 400-650# hfrs bringing from $97- $113 cwt. The cows ad bulls are holding firm, and that trend should continue. Next Tuesday's auction will be an all class cattle sale starting at 11 AM, and or the 23rd of Feb, we'll end the month with another "Peeder Special"...give us a call any- time, and thanks for bringing your business/, right here to Lewistown Livestock ....
