NGJUSD Board will not restore budget cuts 

Programs that were cut out of the Newman-Gustine Joint Unified School District budget last year will not be restored before the District goes out of existence on July 1, 1972.

That was the decision reached Monday night by the NGJUSD Board of Trustees.

Earlier the Trustees had asked Superintendent Kenneth Almeida to present a listing of all the cuts made and their present status, with the possibility of restoring some programs.

Newman gets open burn extension 

Newman has been granted a six-month extension of the state’s Dec. 31 ban on open burning.

The Newman City Council received word of the extension in a letter from the state. The extension was requested because the sanitary landfill site planned by Stanislaus County for west of Crows Landing is not ready.

The Council designated the two poles on the south side of the Kern and O Streets intersection as the official site for hanging banners across O street.

School Board refuses to reinstate economy cuts 

Trustees of the Newman Gustine Unified Joint Unified School District Monday night refused reinstate any of the economy cuts made during the 1970-71 school year.

At the Nov. 22 meeting, the board had asked for a listing of the cuts and their present status. The 30 listings showed most still under the requested figure with a few exceeding the original sum.

In view that the life of the joint unified district is just until June 30, and that school operations are progressing, it was the consensus of the board to leave the matter as it is.

Santa’s coming Saturday 

Hey kids— you’d better be good; Santa Claus is coming to town.

He’ll be at the annual Firemen’s Christmas party Saturday at 1 p.m. at the Gustine Fire House. The firemen have a Christmas tree, goodies, and special surprises in store for Gustine area children who attend the party.

One thing the firemen are sorry about — insurance regulations make it impossible for them to continue their traditional rides on the fire truck, so no rides this year.
