during the year we saw a lot of
people in the unemployment
lines. One of the big factors was
Housing Starts was at one of its
lowest points causing problems
with employment and in the
timber industry. There were a
lot of Saw Mills shut down
because of the declining economy.
In order for some to operate
wages had to be cut back other

, The Bah-Hum-Bug contest
received a total of 53 votes and the
winner is the one and only Mr.
"Benson Heath", now known as
the official Bah-Hum-Bug for 1986.
Benson received a total of 19
votes for all his efforts. Coming in
a close second place, with a total of
12 votes, was Cecil Conner.
Some comments received about
the winner; "I voted for Benson
Heath because of his stern attitude,
never smiling face, never says "hello"
to anyone, makes a fuss over the
radio music, gets grouchy when
"he" thinks its to loud and "he
richly deserves this honor and title."
A comment received about the
runner-up; "Cecil was aware of the
fact that the Christmas tree for the
office was coming in on a Friday,
so he took the day off so he would
not have to help decorate it!"
