Guthrie Ave. 442-3377 Puppy PURINA DOG CHOW Cat Chow PURINA FEED Purina Sun 10 New bicentennial license plate, financing approved in House By BRUCE SCHREINER Associated Press Writer FRANKFORT, Ky. The House decided today to lay additional groundwork for Kentucky's bicentennial celebrations, passing a bill to establish a special license and develop a formula to finance the multitude of events. Before sending the bill to the Senate on a 92-0 vote, the House stripped away a section that proposed paying for the celebration with higher license plate fees. The bill originally would have boosted the $13.50 cost of a plate to $16.

Supporters of House Bill 242 are requesting $4.8 million in each of the next two fiscal years to finance various celebrations commemorating Kentucky's admission as the 15th state in 1792. The bicentennial bill now will have to compete for money from the state General Fund. Funding decisions are expected to be made late in the legislative session. Rep. Pete Worthington, the bill's chief sponsor, said the celebrations will allow Kentuckians to "reflect on the 200 years of rich heritage." The events also will attract outof-state tourists, and will set the tone for the state's next century, said Worthington, D-Ewing, who also is co chairman of the Kentucky Bicentennial Commission.

The plant, which has been open since 1960, makes radial and bias passenger and truck tires. Another Kentucky site, the Brantley Landfill in Island, also was added to the list. The EPA action on Thursday brings the total number of sites on the list to 1,081.

A landfill used by General Tire Inc. to dispose of chemicals and other tire manufacturing wastes is one of 71 hazardous waste sites added to a national priority list for cleanup. The landfill, closed since 1985, is located on General Tire property, company spokesman Ed Kalail said today.

The company fought addition of the site to the list after it was recommended by the Environmental Protection Agency in June 1988, he said.

No action was taken on a proposed Cadiz p*rnography City Council ordinance meeting at the. Thursday night. Mayor Scott Sivills said the" six-member council was unclear on the legal definition of p*rnography. The ordinance, which is the same as the state statutes against p*rnography, didn't get a first reading, he said. Sivills asked that the ordinance be tabled until next month's meeting so his office can ask for an attorney general's opinion on the legal definition of p*rnography and on how an ordinance banning p*rnography can be enforced.

Three people from a local committee against p*rnography attended the meeting, Sivills said.
