The following items were taken from the Sept. 14 through 20, 1963, Examiner.
• Stephenson’s Apple Farm Restaurant, U.S. 40 and Lee’s Summit Road, has entered the Governor’s Trophy Contest. David Glenn Taggart, 2531 Glen Lane, submitted the entry to the Missouri Restaurant Association.
• The Rev. Charles Peters has been called to the vacancy at the First Christian Church in Buckner to take the place of the Rev. Charles Hagee, who resigned to go to the Weston Christian Church. Mr. Peters has been pastor at the Fawcett Christian Church the past two years.
• The Lake City Army Ammunition Plant is the new name by which the Lake City Ordnance Plant will be known, according to Lt. Col. Bruce Pierce. He said the change in name was in line with other changes in the names resulting from the reorganization of the Army.
• Independence will receive a $45,000 emergency hospital, the Civil Defense office announced. The 200-bed hospital, patterned after the Army field hospitals, will be stored in the Pixley Mine because temperature and humidity must be uniform.
• Edwin L. Goodrich, who was confirmed last week by the U.S. Senate as postmaster at Grain Valley, still is working as a carrier out of the Independence Post Office. He read in The Examiner about his appointment before he received a telegram from U.S. Senators Stuart Symington and Edward V. Long, informing him of the confirmation.
