Sixty-five cent override tax election to come before citizens 

A suggested 65 cents “permanent” override tax election to come next spring will be considered by the 100- plus member citizens advisory group on Monday night when the group convenes in what will probably be its final meeting at Orestimba High School starting at 7:30 p.m. The suggested rate was arrived at through compromise and announced to governing board members of Newman-Gustine Joint Unified School District on Monday night of this week by Dr. L.S. McBride, co-chairman of the citizens, who for the past four weeks have been discussing a variety of means whereby the district might find solutions to present poor financial conditions.

AFS plans Christmas greeting club signup

It’s time again to start thinking about Christmas cards; and that means it’s time to think about joining the American Field Service Christmas Greeting Card Club.  How do you do it, and what is it? It’s the way you support AFS -  the organization that brings foreign students to Gustine and sends Gustine Students to foreign countries to live there for a year and go to school. And at the same time you’re supporting AFS, you’re sending all your friends a king-sized Christmas card in the Gustine Standard, along with all the others who choose to join the club.
