Time and space-saving technology are reducing a century-old problem in the district court office at Marion County Courthouse.

The problem is tons of court records; the solution is a palm-sized 16mm film cassette and an electronic reader-printer.

This issue shows Phyllis Kreutziger and Vivian Pirtle as they use the new recorder.

Jerry Calvert, the new pastor of Eastmoor/Youngtown United Methodist churches, is the subject of this week’s “Personality Profile.”

There were several “first dollars of profit” plaques delivered this week by Chamber of Commerce ambassadors George Jackson and Donna Fruechting.

Receiving the plaques were Dennis and Dick Maggard for their new Main Street Auto Service garage; Mike Bredemeier who recently purchased the Dine Inn Cafe from Stanley May; and Frank Pecinovsky, owner of Midwest Sales and Service that he purchased from Lynn Christensen.

Ernest Meierhoff is the most recent entrant in the annual Marion County Record produce derby with an 8½-pound banana cantaloupe from his garden at 102 Grant.
