. Filming of Sewers Continues On Monday, August 25, a crew from Ray Harvey/ Sewer Cam of Noblesville was continuing on a Town of Greentown project of videotaping about 5,000 ft. of Greentown's sewers. The procedure involves a motorized video camera on wheels being lowered into manholes. The forward motion of the camera is controlled from inside a van while a monitor in the van allows instantaneous viewing of what the camera sees. The equipment also records how many feet the camera is from the start point. Tapes are being made for future reference. Bob Armstrong, Town Council President, states that the purpose of the filming is to locate infiltration and inflow, a problem t h e Greentown sanitation Department continues to deal with in striving for efficient operation of the plant and compliance with IDEM ( I n d i a n a Department of . From Common Tool to Refined Instrument - PROW oy K. Jenmns rown Rejects 3ooch Request Doug Gooch came before the jreentown Town Council August 5 to request sewer service for his proposed Graystone Landing subdivision west of t h e reservoir and north of Hwy. 35j" 22. The Town is prohibited by law from annexing the property since it is not adjacent to present. town property; however, the Town could provide water and/ or sewage removal. Mr. Gooch was only requesting sewage service. Town Council president, Bob Armstrong, said he had talked to the town engineer and that the sanitation plant is presently short on sludge storage. Council . member Roger Wolf said he does not feel the town should get into " buying sewage" until the current problem is corrected. Upon a motion by Wolf and a second by James Harris, the Council voted to disapprove Gooch's request. Adrain Gibson of Marion delights groups and school children with the music he pulls out of a saw. Using a cello bow and accompanied on the keyboard by his wife Gathel, he played several hymns and old-time songs for a recent gathering of Seniors on the Move at the Methodist Church Fellowship Hall. Gibson taught himself to play the saw about twenty years ago after hearing a " sawyer" play. He uses a professional musical saw, manufactured in Ft. AtMnson, Wis., but says some ordinary saws from the hardware store w i l l make good music. He likes to point out the lesson for living from this fact: An ordinary object ( or person) can render a beautiful service when touched by a Master. He doesn't know anyone else who plays the saw but has read that there are an estimated 1,600 saw players in the United States. The story goes that playing music on saws originated during logglng days in the 1800' s. Asked how often he has the saw sharpened, Gibson quipped, " I play mostly in flats becauseif I played in sharps, I would need to have the saw sharpened."
