The residents and staff of the at Atlantic OMAHA -- A 14-thousand- foot levee along the left banks of Troublesome Creek and the East Nishnabotna River is recom- mended for flood control at Atlantic, according to the Army corps of engineers. This recommendation is in an interim report completed by Col. O. H. Robinson, acting division engineer, Missouri River division, U. S. Army Corps of Engineers, and Col. B. P. Pen- der.grass, Omaha district engmeer. The report is being referred for review to the Board of Engineers for Rivers and Har- bors in Washington D.C. Atlantic would be protected against discharges equal to the maximum floods of record on Troublesome Creek and the East Nishnabotna River which oc- curred in September and July 1958. The proposed levee would extend from the Chicago, Rook Island and Pacific Railroad embankment east of Atlantie's powerplant to U. S. Highway Six west of Atlantic. Work would include raising both a railroad bridge and a highway bridge. Built with three to one side slopes, the levee would have a top width of ten feet. Estimated first cost of the improvement, based on 1968 prices, is $1,451,000 of which $1,297,000 is Federal. Non- Federal costs for lands, easements, rights-of-way and for certain relocations and modifications of existing facilities would be $154,000. Operations and maintenance costs, estimated at $3,900 an- nually, would be a non-Federal responsibility. BRIX IN TEXAS WICHITA FALI_, "rex. - Airman Roger J. Brix, son of Mrs Evelyn R.

LETTERS TO THE / Dear Christmas City: ' God is Love! Love became Human! To be haman is to be loving. This is the reality I found Harlan to be - haman and loving. This was not an occasional oc- curence, but a daily reality - as all adult love is. Your love was not Methodist, Catholic, Lutheran, Baptist, etc., but human. I! ever denninations, nationalities, or race interfer with this reality, the community will commit communal blasphemy. I pray daily in gratitude for the Harlan Community, and that always and everywhere, anyone who encounters this community will find it Incarnate (In-The Flesh; humanly Christ-like) as I did. Christ came to serve, not to be served; to give Life; Life more abundantly. The gift has been offered; Harlan has accepted it - continue to do so.
