Cline said he has enjoyed his many years on the council and through the years has helped make many changes and improvements to the small Jewell County town, population 130. According to Cline, one of the first large projects he helped with was in bringing rural water into town. "It was when we found out the city well water was contaminated. Virgil Mohler was the mayor and we drove to Topeka three times trying to get the govern- ment to help," Cline said. A grant was Spring seems to be "bustin' out all over," accelerated by the April showers received and water lines were installed received in the area recently.

Velma has been a long time church accompanist. They have a son, Rod, Glaseo, and a daughter, Leilani Dikkers, Arizona. They have one grandson. "I have enjoyed being acity council member and the part I liked the most about it was seeing the projects come together and seeing the end results. I would have liked to see more city clean- ing up done," he said. He tells what to him makes a good city council member. "It is accom- plishing something for the benefit of the people and the city".
