‘Firsts’ for 1973 (4 January 1973)

The ‘firsts’ of the year always receive notice, and in keeping with this time-honored custom, The Clark County Press publishes the following list:

First baby born at memorial Hospital, Neillsville: a daughter to Mr. and Mr. Lewis Walde of rural Greenwood, weighing six pounds, 14 ½ ounces, January 2.

First person to pay taxes: Albert Smith. He was previous, making his payment December 18. A number of people do this customarily because of effect on income taxes, according to City Clerk William Gallagher.

First to pay dog tax: Albert Wilson.

Vehicles driven by Janet J. Schultz, Marshfield, and Gerald A. Welch, Chili, were involved in the first county traffic accident reported in 1973. The mishap occurred at 9:50 a.m. January 1 on County Trunk Y, an eighth of a mile north of Chili. According to the report, the two north bound autos collected when the lead Welch station wagon slowed to turn into a church driveway. No injury was reported. Damage was estimated at over $200.
