SALINE MEN GET BIG TURTLE CATCH: Trapping turtles isn't very common in Washtenaw county, and capturing 10 turtles in six traps is even more rare, but that's what George Hertler of US-112, Saline township, did Wednesday. The gross weight of the catch was about 150 pounds, and the largest turtle weighed 19 pounds. Mr. Hertler obtains turtle meat and turtle soup for his restaurant, and the turtles are caught in Snake lake near Clinton. Mrs. Hertler paints the shells like those suspended from the roof in the picture. Holding some of the catch, from left to right, are: Will Schumacher, route 2, Saline, Mrs. Hertler and Mr. Hertler.

Perseverance -- and following the proper City Hall channels -- has gotten Mr. Flood's Party its planter boxes. The first attempt by the owner of the W. Liberty Street nightspot to build a sidewalk planter failed because a permit wasn't obtained. Following unheeded warnings to stop the work, city officials used a front-end loader to literally scoop the box away. The owner of the bar, Ned Duke, then went to City Council for the necessary approval, but council said "no" after learning the city would be responsible for any accidents caused by the planter. A second try convinced council to grant the permit. Plantings in one of the two stone boxes was completed Wednesday by, from left, Pat Grammatico, who did the stone work, John Cruz, Carol Bernstein and Duke. (News Photo by Jack Stubbs)
