annual Spring Blossom Festivcll Celebrated March 29-30 for the of March and com- 20th Blossom welcome to the promised are cause and the Chamber of tours of tours can begin V'dla Chart- owned Villa etc. and Sample and cookies, goodies. When this Countryside called the lhdval, but this fertile and beautiful area returned to its heritage of growing fine wine grapes and many of the prune orchards were replanted to vineyards. However, there are still enough orchards, festooned with their lovely white blossoms, to give you a good idea of how the whole countryside looked when it was mostly covered with a blanket of dazzling, white prune blossoms. You're very welcome to springtime in Blossom Country, and you'll be glad you tore yourself away from weekend chores to leisurely visit the lovely countryside and wend your way along the 30-mile Blossom Tour through Alexander Valley and Dry Creek Valleys, where some of California's finest wine-grapes are grown and some of the state's most outstanding wines are pressed. There are any number of well-known new and old wineries along the route, some of them world famous, featuring tasting rooms and retail sales of their award-winning wines and where you are most welcome to taste and buy, or just admire the views and exhibits. One of the high lights of the occasion is the famous country luncheon put on by the Farm Bureau members at the Alexander Valley Community Hall which is always gayly decorated with prune blossoms and flowers of the season. The buffet style luncheon features delicious ham and baked beans prepared in the kit-  ................... chens of the members and includes salads, bread and butter, beverages and pickled prunes, and about as many different kinds of home- baked cakes as there are members who bake them. With it all you'll get as much red and white wine, from grapes of the region, as you wish included with the price of the luncheon, which is $3.75 for adults and $1.50 for , children. Reservations are ' : not required and tickets are sold at the door from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Last year over 1,400 people enjoyed this delightful experience, some of them for the 12th straight year, and you're invited to join them.

Sonoma County is and will be a beautiful place to live as long as agriculture continues to be a viable industry. Hopefully prices returned to growers will be enough to offset ever rising production costs and land planning practices will keep our most productive land, productive. The 1979 Sonoma County Agricultural review would be easy to write statistically. The figures are totaled and gains are seen in some commodities, while losses are recorded in others. But, while statistics may be im- portant economic factors, tthey will show another ( at San On Rainy DRIVE-UP Days WINDOW Prices Effective Wednesdoy thru Tuesday where " they ( and the ,( the m the ing cell Services record year for agriculture in Sonoma County), what isn't recorded is inflation, added government regulation, urbanization, lack of labor, unforseeable problems associated with weather, predators, and other forces unique to farm management. The year 1979 ended a decade of change in agriculture for Sonoma County. Urbanization ac- counted for the loss of former bay, grazing, orchard and vineyard lands, especially in Petaluma, Rhonert Park, Santa Rosa, and Sebastopol. More stringent water quality regulations forced many dairy operations out of business or out of county. In the North there was a great change over from prunes and pears to premium quality grapes, resulting in an in- crease of 15,000 acres planted in wine grapes since 1970. Our sheep flocks drastically decreased from 75,000 head in 1970, to 45,000 head in 1979, due mainly to predators, coyotes and dogs. Nineteen-seventynine was a good year for many crops, including apples, pears, and prunes with grapes having a lower than expected yield, because of rains effecting the later maturing portion of the harvest. Sheep and cattle were still down from the drought years and predation, with "egg prices off slightly from 1978 and milk holding fairly steady. s going on in Youth Services EY mates in the future.

Spring & well warning issued Sonoma County public health officer Robert Holtzer is advising residents to take precautions against potential contamination of wells and springs because of the recent heavy rains. All municipal, public and mutual water systems are required to submit water samples to a certified laboratory on a regular basis for bacteriological testing, Hotzer said. However, sampling of individual wells and springs is the responsibility of the owner or tenant, he said. Sanitarians have been making spot checks of water systems most likely to be affected by the heavy rains and flooding, Holtzer said, and to date findings indicate water system operators are maintaining adequate chlorine residuals for protection against con- tamination. Holtzer said discoloration of water frequently indicates surface water infiltration and contamination. Emergency precautions that can be taken against contamination include: Boil water briskly for at least 5 minutes, allow to cool and store in a clean, covered container. If the taste is flat, poor the water back and forth from one container to another to allow air to be absorbed. This is the simplest and afest method of treating small volumes of water, Add 3 drops of any 5.25 percent solution of sodium hypochlorite (household bleach) to one gallon of water to be disinfected. Mix thoroughly and allow to stand 30 minutes before using. Oblain,:water from an ap- provl public shppiy. Additional informatmn can be obtained by calling the division of environmental health of the Sonoma County public health services, 527- 2992.
