The company with the franchise, United Transmissions, Inc., informed the Harlan City Council this month of its intention to discontinue the fight. It was hard enough for the company to get the right to a franchise in Harlan, but their attempts to get approval from the Federal Communications Commission have been futile IN A LETTER to the council, Hayward Fisk, secretary of United Transmissions, pointed out: "United Transmission, Inc., sought the franchise in good faith without knowledge or an- ticipation of the regulatory ob- stacles that subsequently arose, and sincerely regrets its inability to provide CATV service to the residents of Harlan, but hopes that this action on its part will enable the city of Harlan to pursue other possible avenues for obtaining CATV service in Hat]an." Fisk states that his company and others have been precluded from operating such cable-TV franchises because of a ruling by the FCC June 26, 1968.

It was defeated in the first public election on Feb. 14, 1967, but then carried by a 450-392 margin on a second election on March 30, 1967. United Transmissions estimated that over $i15,000 would have been spent on the project in a story that appeared in the June 30 issue of the Harlan Newspapers. This money ap- parently won't be spent, and other expenses will have gone down the drain, as Fisk's letter states that his company "relinauishes its rights as granted by franchise ordinance 327" with the city of Harlan. Mayor K. L. Mueller had requested Fisk's letter following a conference between him and Gene E. Olson of United Tran- smissions Oct. 13.

Another new councilman, Earl Baldwin, has already been in office as an appointee to replace John Vanderheiden, who resigned. His elected term starts Jan. 2. - Salaries of the councilmen and mayor vary. It is against the law for councilmen to vote themselves a raise during the current term. So the recent pay raise, from $5 a meeting to $10 a meetin for councilmen, will onL, apply to Councilmen Bill 11nsiey, 'Earl Baldwin, LeRoy Christensen, and Darrell Burger, since they have been elected to lhe office since the pay raise was voted. On the other hand, Councilmen Earl lJdwin and Jim Noble will not collect the raise until they are elected again in the 1971 elections. Mayor K. L. Mueller will receive his raise from $600 a year to $1,000 since he was elected again last Tuesday. -Next municipal election will be the first Tuesday in November, 1971. Terms expiring will be that of mayor and Councilmen Boltinghouse, Noble, and Baldwin. Baldwin was elected last Tuesday to fill out Vanderheiden's four-year term. - Voting by wards in last Tuesday's election for the at- large spot on the council was as follows: First ward: Christensen 44, Tinsley 44; second ward: Tinsley 93, Christensen 53; third ward: Tinsley 98, Christensen 45; and fourth ward: Tinsley 96, Christensen 43.
