New Police Station to be named "The Leon Yeager Building".

Dennis Yeager, a Midland oilman shown above, has pledged a substantial amount of money for the new Police Station that is now under construction. The City Council voted at their meeting last night to name the new facility the "Leon Yeager Building". Chief Yeager served this community for almost 13 years and passed away after a battle with cancer in 1967. Dennis Yeager is one of the Chief Yeager's sons, and he was on hand at the Council meeting to make his pledge in honor of his father.
