MUNISING- City viewers may still be able to receive Marquette’s television station, WLUC-TV6, should Bresnan Cable Company drop it from their service in October. WLUC is exploring ways to boost its raw signal over the hills surrounding Munising, allowing viewers to pick it up with a standard antenna, TV6 General Manager Jim Kizer said. Bresnan has threatened to drop TV6 because the station is demanding payment for its signal under the new cable TV act passed by Congress last year.

ISHPEMING- Attendants at the Carnegie Public library today reported that nearly all the 132 new books received here during the last two days have gone into circulation. Only a few of the nonfiction books were still available by mid-afternoon. The shipment received at the Ishpeming library was the first real addition made to the library since last November and included 102 fiction, 15 non-fiction, and 15 juvenile books. Only one new book is being issued to persons holding cards because of the great demand.
