20 Years Ago JULY 6, 1994 ALMOST FINISHED Crews expected to wrap-up streetscape in next week Work crews are expected to have the bulk of streetscape work done by the end of the month \u2013 with an eye on a possible July 17 completion date, according to Evart city officials. Crews from McNeilly Contracting, of Farwell, were working on the downtown streets late last week. \u201cI would say it\u2019s probably about 75 percent complete and the sidewalks are about 90 percent complete, said Alan Bengry, a member of the Evart Downtown Development Authority, the lead agency for the renovation project. \u201cSo far everybody I\u2019ve talked to has been real positive about what\u2019s happening down town. A lot of people are coming in from out of town and their first reaction is to complain about all the dirt and the dust. Then they say that it will sure look nice when it\u2019s all done,\u201d Bengry said. Mayor Roger Elkins said the project \u201clooks great\u201d so far, but cautioned that it\u2019s not the end-all for Evart\u2019s economy. \u201cWe attended a seminar about six months ago where they talked about the idea that \u2018build it and they will come.\u2019 That\u2019s not true. We still have more to do,\u201d Elkins said. 40 Years Ago JULY 4, 1974 LOGGING TOOL\u00a0NAMES VP L. W. \u201cBill\u201d Wright has been named vice-president of the American Logging Tool Corporation.
