What is your favorite place to eat in Hermiston?
Probably Taste of Thai — I like that place.

If you could travel anywhere, where would
Ireland, without a doubt, and I will be going there in
a few months.
What is the funniest thing that’s ever happened
There’s a lot I can’t say. But when we were kids, my

my brother ﬂ ipped and rolled down the hill. That was
pretty funny. He got back up and wanted to go again.
What is one of your goals for the next 12
To join the military.
What is your proudest accomplishment?
Probably the very ﬁ rst time I brought home a report
card with a 4.0.

•During the past 10
days Water Superinten-

busy practically night
and day pumping water
directly into the city mains
so as to give Contractor
Beisse an opportunity to
do some needed work on
the city reservoir located
on the apex of Hermis-
ton butte. With a force of
men the work was exe-
cuted in the least possible
time. The repairs consisted
of putting a stop to a leak
that had sprung in the bot-
tom of the reservoir by the
breaking of the concrete
ﬂ oor, and in the process
of doing this the big tank
was given a much needed
ﬂ ushing out and cleaning,
after which the walls were
thoroughly gone over with

•In a communication
received by The Hermis-
ton Herald, Collector of
Internal Revenue Milton
A. Miller, announces that
a federal income tax col-
lector will be sent into this
county on Jan. 3 and will
be here until Jan. 30. He
will have his ofﬁ ce in the
courthouse at the county
seat and will be there every
day ready and willing to
help persons subject to the
income tax make out their
returns without any cost
to them for his services.
Returns of income for the
year 1917 must be made on
forms provided for the pur-
pose before March 1, 1918.
Because a good many peo-
ple don’t understand the
law and won’t know how
to make out their returns,
the government is send-
ing in this expert to do it
for them. But the duty is on
the taxpayer to make him-
self known to the govern-
ment. If he doesn’t make
a return as required before
March 1, he may have to
pay a penalty ranging from
$20 to $1,000 or go to jail.
So if you don’t want to
take chances on going to
jail, you better call on the
income tax man. Whether
you see the income tax
man or not, you must make
a return if subject to tax.
