30 YEARS AGO

Rutherglen Reformer - - Memory Lane -

A Cathkin man gained an in­ter­view af­ter ap­ply­ing for nearly 500 jobs, only to have to throw it away due to DHSS red tape.

Ruther­glen’s trou­bled swim­ming pool was to fi­nally re­open af­ter con­tro­ver­sially be­ing shut for six months for re­pairs and main­te­nance.

Labour’s par­lia­men­tary can­di­date in the up­com­ing gen­eral elec­tion ac­cused op­po­nents of con­duct­ing a smear cam­paign against him.

Police were in­ves­ti­gat­ing a blaze in a Ruther­glen tim­ber yard that had left some se­ri­ous dam­age.

The five mile road race be­ing held as part of Lan­de­mer Day had a few prob­lems - as it clashed with the Scot­land v Brazil friendly in­ter­na­tional and a back­log of traf­fic caused the start to be held up.
