Page 10, Cloverdale Reveille, February 19, 1997 FAIR eant had Mardi Gras and carni: val as its theme. Local and coun- ty officials were on hand to start off the festivities Friday night. Cloverdale's Mayor Tom Sink, a lifelong resident, noted how the fair is really an annual com- munity reunion. "It shows the love we have for this time and place," he commented. Richard Gutierrez, president of the Citrus Fair Board, thanked the board members, many vol- unteers, and the fair staff who all make this event possible. He noted the passing of Bill Vanda- griff who had been a longtime fair volunteer and supporter. 'air CEU, Gary McDonald said that every Citrus Fair is unique and discussed some of the changes of the 1997 fair, including different venues for the wine tasting event and arts and crafts. Midway through the pageant, Gary McDonald presented Mike Wlodarczyk with the Blue Rib- bon Award - an honor given ev- ery year to an outstanding indi- vidual who donates time and energy to the fair. The award is given by the fair's board of direc- tors. Six contestants vied for the title of Citrus Fair Queen and presented interesting commen- taries on serious subjects rang- ing from the death penalty to teenage alcoholism. Jenny Nickolaus is the 1997 Citrus Fair Queen and Corinne Theile is first runner-up. Gina Perrault was named Miss Con- geniality. For her monologue, Nickolaus talked about the devastating ef- fect of divorce on children and her talent presentation was a song titled: "How Can I Help You Say Good-by." First runner-up Corinne Theile spoke about the issue of dyslexia and preformed a stun- ning dance number "Copa Ca- bana." MCs for the event, Gary Strat- ton and Bob Christopher, inter- viewed this year's Lily Lemon Zoe Ottoboni, and Oran Orange Wes Hetrick, during the pag- eant. Stratton and Christopher, who live in Orlando, Florida and work at Disney World have been host- ing the pageant for nine years. They supplied their usual self- deprecating humor and funny pokes at Cloverdale, including jokes about staying at the "Bates Hotel." Winners of the Citrus Sculp- tures were announced. Junior Citrus Sculpture winners includ- ed: Girl Scout Troop No. 31 (Man on Stilts) first place; JEH Memo- rial High School (Jester) second place; Girl Scout Troop No. 341 (Masks of Carnaval) third place; Cloverdale Fire Explorer Post 17 (Carnaval of Flames) fourth place. Adult Citrus Sculpture win- ners included: Laureate Theta Beta (Court Jester) first place; Safeway - Healdsburg (Masks) second place; Toastmasters (Riv- er Queen) third place. Frank, Bob, and Firends (Road to Rio) took fourth place in the feature exhibits and Cloverdale High School (Carnaval in Ven- ice- Gondola) took filth. WEBB pacts and policing services would be less, and, finally, that a re- tirement community generates a strong volunteer base for the city. John Barella, one of the land partners, also addressed the Council. He was asked why he- wanted to change the nature of the project. He said that he and his partners were not able to find any builders out there will- ing to take Clover Springs over with its present configuration of mixed housing. The Del Webb offer has been the only one he has been able to secure. He noted that letting the land con- tinue to go undeveloped - possi- bly another 3 to 5 years - was costingthe partnerships millions of dollars. One advantage to approving the change was pointed out. Del Webb intends to proceed with development of Clover Springs at once. Barella said he did not know how long it would take to find a willing builder to proceed with Clover Springs in its present design.
