By Roberta Lyons Another Cloverdale Citrus Fair has come and gone -a new queen is reigning and a "first ever" winner of the Citrus Fea- ture exhibit has been announced. This year's theme "Carnaval of Citrus," sparked the imagina- tions of Cloverdale's creative cit- izens. Cloverdale 4-H was a first time winner in the Feature Exhibit category with their "Party of Two" gazebo. The Cloverdale Lions came in second with "The Jester," and the Cloverdale Pre-School took third place with their French Quarter }louse. Two teams of judges are used to assess the exhibits.

Planning Director Joe Heckel and City Manager Bob Perrault asked the Council to consider the new concept only at this time, whether a senior project rather than a mixed housing develop- ment would be acceptable. May- or Tom Sink said that he wanted input from the public on this issue before making a final deci- sion. Clover Springs, as it now stands, has gone through sever- al years of planning; has com- pleted its environmental stud- ies; has arranged with the Clo- verdale Unified School District pup, Bear, participated in annual Pet Parade as part of the Cloverdele Citrus Fair that was hdd on Saturday. to provide a school site for et,- mentary grades adjacent to ded- icated parklands, and has had housing designs approved. A major change in the funda- mental nature of the project would have to have approval of the City Council initially to be followed by more hearings on a new design plan. Council members were mainly concerned about the impact this change would have on the school district's plan. Mayor Sink told Hummer that he would not okay the change until he could be sure the school district's concerns had been met. School District Superinten- dent Dr. Sato was present at the meeting but declined to say whether changing Clover Springs to a retirement commu- nity would preclude the need for a new elementary school. Hummer said that his clients are meeting with school district officials regarding this issue. Councilmembers Jim Teague and Sink were also concerned about public access to recreation- al facilities under the new con- figuration. Kenin Payne, representing I)el Webb, said that such facilities would be under the control of a homeowner's association. Payne told the Council that Del Webb was excited by the prospect of coming to Clover- dale. The Corporation is known for its Sun City developments in Roseville and in Nevada. He invited the Council and city staff to tour the Roseville complex to see the quality of the homes and the facilities provided. He said that Del Webb feels there is a market for such a development in northern Sono- ma County and had high praise for Cloverdale's geographical Cloverdale teen Miss Sonoma Cty Cloverdale High School's Pi- rette Robertson was named the 50th Miss Sonoma County Sat- urday night in a scholarship pro- gram at Rohnert Park.

Boy receives Congressional Recognition Victor Sanchez, a 14-year-old Cloverdale resident and Wash- ington School eighth grader was given a Certificate of Congres- sional Recognition for his heroic efforts Feb. 8, when he saved his 64-year-old neighbor from chok- ing on a piece of food. Chief of staff of Congressman Riggs Office, Darrell Shull, pre- sented the certificate to Sanchez at a school-wide assembly last Thursday. Sanchez's family and the man whose life he saved, Don McMichael and his wife were also present. Shull commended Sanchez's willingness to get involved and his quick thinking actions that saved McMichael. Shull told those assembled that Sanchez stands as an inspiration to this community. Cloverdale Fire Captain Al Delsid also addressed the stu- dents and adults gathered and d'esribed what he saw when he arrived on scene at the McMicha- el's. "I saw McMichael gagging and Victor doing the Hemlich maneuver." He praised Sanchez for his calm, explaining that there is a lot of stress when some- one's life is on the line. He urged all gathered to learn CPR, first aid--and the Heimlich maneuver which he demonstrat ed on Sanchez. On February 8, Don McMicha- el was nearing unconsciousness when his wife Mary's pleas for help reached Sanchez ears. Sanchez raced to the McMicha- ers apartment and applied the Heimlich maneuver, saving Mc- Michael's life. About a month ago, Don Mc- Michael taught the Sanchez's the Heimlich maneuver when a member of their family started choking. II I I I II I I III
