I^IERGENCY ELECTRICAL Through the cooperation of Art Hoyt and A1 VJ^llie the
tq TATcrpATTi^n Knoll Shores now has an emergency electrical
SljSM IS j:^I^TALLED system that will provide service in event a hurricane or
disaster would cause a power interruption. Some
months ago the town purchased a 3,000-watt gasoline-powered generator for
standby ser^ce. It now has been installed along with appropriate switching
par through the generosity of Art and Al, who donated their time and talents
to the project. The voltage supplied by the generator is not sufficient to
maintain all town hall services in the event of a blackout, but will furnish W
^wer to light the fire and rescue bay; the emergency headquarters over
looking the garage, the gasoline pumps, the police .station "and sufficient wall
sockets to charge walkie-talkies and beepers.

^SI»ipKEr*JS VEII* "Smokey,” the firehouse cat, has had her hysterectomy and
„ 3“^ ape^s ,to be well and continues her assigned duties
EHTERTAPIDiG of catching snakes and mice that make the mistake of visiting
the building. She also has attracted a large, and well-
groomed, male cat who drops by for a visit now and then, but obviously only
to dine at ”Smokey*s ” dimner dish. On more than one occasion the visitor has
been escorted from the firehouse, v/hich apparently fails to discourage the not
so amorous, but hungry, admirer.
