Mayor Scott Mitchell said paving crews were in town and were expected to finish the first half of the paving project within a week. Mitchell said the crew was then going to go work on a runway at the Rolla Airport and then return to Rolla to finish the second half of the paving project. When they are completed, that will put a bow on what has been a six-month process that has seen 27 blocks torn up throughout the city. The project is being funded with USDA Rural Development Funds, which are made up of an approximate 45 percent grant and low-interest loan. The total estimated cost of the project is $4.4 million. With that particular project wrap- ping up, the city has been debating what to do with their water treatment plant. Over the past few months, the council has discussed upgrading the city's water treatment plant, or pur- chasing water from Public Utilities in Belcourt. According to figures provided by Moore Engineering, the annual ex- pense to upgrade the water treatment plan[ would be roughly $584,451.55. City (Continued from Page 1) The cost to purchase water from Pub- lic Utilities would be approximately $584,224. The estimated user rate in- crease would be $22 per month to up- grade the current facility and $20 to purchase water from an outside source. The council has said it will not move forward with any project until it hears input from the community. With that, a special meeting has been set for this Wednesday, October 22, at 7 p.m. at the city hall. Lastly, it wouldn't be a regular Rolla City Council meeting if the governing body didn't briefly debate a subject that hasn't been discussed in a quarter of a century, if not longer. The topic of Halloween trick or treat hours was brought up by Councilman Chris Albertson. For years eager trick or treaters have had only one hour to accumulate as much precious candy as possible. Albertson asked that the allotted time be extended and, following a brief discussion, it was moved to add 30 minutes. The official trick or treat- ing hours in Rolla will be 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. No word if the hot topic is going to be reignited and debated fur- ther at the special meeting on Wednesday. Candidate (Continued from Page 1) "A decision will be made but it's probably too late," Peltier said Sunday afternoon. "I don't have a good feeling about my chance to get on the ballot." Peltier said Judge Vetsch's decision was based on a "that was then, and this is now" stance regarding his circumstances. In 1983, Peltier was charged for using $100 from a tribal housing program to help a couple pay rent, which was ...................................... against federal regulations. However, "We he was never tried and his records do not list him as having a federal misde- meanor involving the misuse of tribal funds. In 1988, the case was officially dismissed, made it as diffiCult In addition, a 2004 case in which as possible for me, il Peltier was put back on the ballot specifically notes the following: "As- real suming, the Constitutional Amend- ment does pass or is authorized (which : , , it did); it does not apply to Ronald going to end. Peltier because it is considered an ex post facto (after the fact) law. A law Ron Peltier cannot apply retroactively; it can only apply perspectively and may apply to future candidates because the standards for elected officials should be set high." Peltier said Judge Vetsch did not accept the argument that he was being in- correctly denied entry into the election despite the fact that his name is specifi- cally mentioned in the 2004 court order. He also alleged "foot dragging" on the part of the Tribal Court staff when it came to filing his appeal after Judge Vetsch's decision. Peltier said Judge Vetsch did not sign off on the decision until Wednesday afternoon. Monique Vondall, Peltier's attorney, attempted to file the appear that day but the clerk of court had taken the afternoon off. On Thursday, Pelter said Vondall again tried to file the appeal but when he checked on the progress of the motion, he was told that the attorney did not leave the correct amount of money to cover the court fees. After correcting that matter, Peltier said the appeal was to be filed Friday morning, but the clerk of court called in sick. He said Vondall then took it upon herself to file the appeal and contact Appellate Judge B.J. Jones in Grand Forks, requesting an immediate consideration. "We really got the run around," Peltier said. "(The tribal court staff) made it as difficult as possible for me. I really wondering when this is all going to end."

Bankruptcy (Continueci!'from Page I) is a large contributor to the city's sales tax funds, much of which is used to ease infrastructure costs for property owners. In court papers, Alco blamed the effects of the "lingering economic slowdown" on its customers, many of whom are living on fixed or low incomes in rural areas. While it has positioned its stores to avoid head-to- head competition with larger dis- count chains, Alco said it couldn't escape the effects of economic dis- tress in the U.S. The bankruptcy filing puts about 3,000 jobs on the line, most of them in stores in areas of Texas, Kansas, Colorado and other states, located in small communities and sparsely pop- ulated regions. While it seeks bank- ruptcy-court approval to move ahead with the liquidation, Alco will also be i  lrsuing a going-concern sale that would preserve operations at some or all of the stores. Potential buyers have been approached, Alco Chief Executive Stanley B. Latacha said in a court filing. Employees (Continued from Page 1) worked with the court only three months. A specific reason for Tillich's removal was not stated in the state documents. Holewa stated the clerk of court's has a variety of responsibilities. "They are taking any information and getting ready for the judge to re- view, scheduling hearings and once a decision is made, they make sure that decision is recorded and sent on to the parties that can act on it," Holewa stated. Holewa said the positions are being advertised and should be filled within six weeks. In the meantime, deputy clerks from Devils Lake and Grafton are ro- tating to keep the court system in the county functioning. "We are committed to continuing court in Rolette County and making sure that the residents get excellent service," Holewa said. "We have the same standards there as we do for the rest of the state." fll00 QUENTIN N.
