Dr. Mehta

Dr. Nalin Mehta, 34, a native of India, would open an office for practice of medicine on July 15 at Second Street in Albemarle. He wanted to encourage the development of greater cancer-treating facilities here.


Work was progressing on a new exhibit building at the Stanly County Fair. The new building, 24 by 56 feet, was to be ready in advance of the 1981 fair.


Stanly County commissioners agreed to an interim contract with the Town of Oakboro to supply water at 80 cents per 1,000 gallons and a minimum of 4 million gallons, pending further consideration.

The action was taken after Mayor Claud Teeter, all members of the Oakboro Town Board and Art Rogers of Stanly Knitting Mills met with the board and protested the planned 95-cent rate approved by the board earlier.
