Support Clean Air
To The Editor:
There have been so many conflicting statements made about the
Clean Air Act and the various amendments which have been proposed
. that our nation is totally confused. There is no doubt that we as
citizens want to live and work in a clean environment. Numerous opi-
nion surveys have shown this to be a fact.
What is not so well known is that Opinion Research Corporation of
Princeton, N.J,, released the results of a survey in December 1981 that
showed 81 percent of the public and 78 percent of environmental ac-
tivists agreed that changes in the clean air act probably could be made
so that air quality could be protected at a lower cost than now.
Each of us has to answer the question: “How can our limited
resources be most effectively used to safeguard public health and the
environment at the same time we fulfill our national demand for
economic growth?” Barbara Blum, recent EPA deputy administrator,
stated, “The greatest opportunity for a clean American Environment
lies in a healthy, revitalized economy. Rebuilding America’s industrial
capitol base provides a big chance to attain economic as well as en-
vironmental goals.” Our economy lies stagnant. A part of the reason
for this is the long delay required in obtaining new environmental per-
mits. Eliminating red tape, delays, and confusion and irrational re-
quirements strengthens, not weakens, the Clean Air Act.
Why doesn’t Congress act? Is it because our representatives are too
concerned about November to think of what is best for our country?
Representative Jim Broyhill has offered amendments that will preserve
the environment, yet allow for needed industrial growth. Let’s let him
know we support and encourage his actions.

Youth’s Future Not Bright
To the editor:
Being concerned citizens, we wonder what the future holds for the
youth of Grover. As it stands now, it doesn’t look very bright.
As some of you may know of you read last week’s Herald, Grover
hosted a Dixie Youth Little League District Tournament starting on
Saturday, July 17, at 3:00 and ending on Wednesday, July 21. There
were seven teams playing in this sport which has a lot of supporters.
There were approximately 300 people who came from Dallas,
Tryon, Bessemer City, Kings Mountain, West Lincolnton, East Lin-
colnton and Grover each day to watch their son or someone else’s play
ball. There was good ball, good food, everything was going real good
until Monday, July 19, at about 3:30, when a Duke Power man came
down to the Grover ball park and turned the lights off, because the
mayor and council decided at a meeting that they would no longer pay
for the boys to be able to see to play ball.
Here we were expecting six teams and their faithful fans to come to
Grover to watch a good game, but there is no power for the 6:00 game,
which probably would run into dusk, and then there is an 8:00 game
which definitely needs lights. Why can Grover youth not have a fair
chance to play sports or whatever activitiy just because of a handful of
people? We don’t ask for any money because we know the town would
never support a youth program. Why should they when they decided
to no longer pay the light bill. a
Qur league president knew that after the July 17th tournament that
the lights would be turned off, because the mayor sent him a letter, but
who would ever guess he’d have them turned off in the middle of our
After much discussion with the mayor the lights were turned back
on, but who knows for how long. The purpose of this letter is to let the
