PICKETS VOW LONG SIEGE Mrs. Sandy Nimersheim, 4123 Calumet Cir., Mason, right, led by a dozen homeowners picketing in front of Mason City Hall Friday. The group was protesting actions by the city administration. Mrs. Nimersheim said she was upset over an “unnecessary delay” in issuing a building permit to renovate her basement into a family room. She was joined on the picket line by her three children, Tammy, five; Lela, nine, and Jerry, seven. Also on the line were other Mason residents who said they were “sick and tired” of treatment they have received from the city manager. They vowed to picket all day Monday and attend council’s regular meeting Monday night. Saturday, March 11, 1978.
