Neighborhood's ^paee-age' house on tour of homes The American Association of University Women, (AAUW) is holding its annual tour of homes Saturday Oct 2. Proceeds are placed into a scholarship fund trom which many area students have benefited since its inception 41 years ago. Tickets and visit guidelines are available from Joan Parsons in Lorain at 288-0676, or from Patti Wegehaupt in Amherst at 988-8016. The $10 tickets are also available from: Higgins Pharmacy, Off Broadway Flowers, David Anthony Salon, Fratiane Flowers, Palace Civic Center, The Mermaid's Tail, Brandau Jewelers, Zelek's Florist, Sisson's Flowers and the William's House. One of the six homes in this year's tour of homes has been chosen from the Amherst area. The Lesner home, located at 45180 Middle Ridge Road, is known as the "Jetson House" by the neighborhood kids because, of its space-age appearance. Mark Lesner grew up in the Highland Park area of Lorain, graduating in 1972 from Admiral King High School. He attended Baldwin- Wallace during the 1972-73 school year,-before electing to work for a year at the steel mill. Lesner then returned to college, switching to Kent State University, and graduated from there with a five-year architectural degree in 1979. At first glance at the house, one might wonder if Frank Lloyd Wright had built a home in Amherst.

Annexation a must for city to take on 'nowhere sewer' ; The Amherst Township "sewer to nowhere" is still going nowhere. ; Mayor John Higgins presented a proposal to the Lorain County commissioners on Sep. 9 outlining the pity's terms and conditions lo provide sanitary sewer service to rati- jdents who will tie into the Rt 58 hewer system. 1 According to commissioner Mary Jo Vasi. the holdup is that me com- jpiissionen need more information from the city. rTheh proposal was vague; whet's fee cost going to her Vasi asked. 1 "I don't see too many people Un- W up around her to grab this thing, hut they sure wist to make it diiB- Higtlae cation. As part of an agreement, Amherst insists that in inspection verifying condition should be undertaken, preferably by both dty and county, and any repairs that might be needed, should be paid for by the county. Amhent is dogmatic about the area along Rt 58 between Middle Ridge Road and Rt 113 being annexed to the chy, and that residenu who tie into the sewage system from outside the Rt 58 annex ana would have to agree not so fight annexation should that be required later.
