Money raised to date for Vienna trip ,SO0 School spirit and pride spur s caters on About 75 skaters (C.H.S. Band members and friends) Started a Skate- a-Than Friday and at least four of them, blisters and all made it to the end. Brian Ramos, C.H.S. Band student, with the help of Mgr, Joel Banttare of the Cloverdale Roller Skating Center, organized and co- ordinated the successful Skate-a-Thon held at the Citrus Fair Building. "I've never seen anything like it", Mgr. Banttare said. "The kids were incredible! I've never seen any group skate this long and actually physically n(ving. Two of them, Tru_da Hicks and Dan Waiters, went at exceptional speeds the whole time." Linda Singleton skated $34 per hour and lasted for $340.00 (ouch) dollars worth. One who didn't make it was lying on the floor with his feet propped up saying, "This is the agony of de- feet!" Some of those kids hanging on for the full 24 hrs were skating for 25 cents, but it didn't seem to matter. The 24 hr. ordeal brought blisters on top of blisters, some of the kids had to quit because of them. As one parent said, "The feet of some of those kids are a complete disaster!' But it didn't stop them from attempting to skate 'til the very end. It certainly did not dampen their spirits, diminish their pride or fellowship. Peter Tschirch had never skated before the Skate-a-Thon. In the beginning, two girls held him up and Continued on page 17 Clo vet"da le vet.lie Volume 102 No.13 Wednesday, March 26, 1980 1 Section 18 Pages 20 cents Springs project ' gressing lanned watched the Springs project by Congress in to at last see much enthusiasm approach that we again last week.

NORTH END ACCESS The 24 miles of new roads and relocation plus three new bridges will include access roads from the Cloverdale area. Plans are to use and develop about the first 5 miles of Kelly Road (Owned by the Corps of Engineers) and switch north to connect with Hot Springs Road thus avoiding the switchbacks on Kelly. This will leave Cloverdale just minutes away from the Lake. According to the Lake Sonoma Master Plan an information and Ad- ministration Center is designed for location at the Hot Springs Road Portal Area and will serve the total north lake area. "Functions housed in the center include an entrance lobby-recreation area where visitors can obtain in- The soft mist and fog hovering over the location of Warm Springs Dam gives an illusion of the way Lake Sonoma will appear when it is completed and filled with water. formation; sales of books, art or ar- tifacts, if the demand occurs; a major exhibit area addressing history, ethnology, archeology, vegetation and wildlife, social development and lake aesthetics; a multi-pm'po room which can function as an orientation room, meeting room and theatre; workroom and storage; office and sleeping and bath facilities for the center's staff. Public restroom and mechanical equipment space are also included. This structure is approximately 2,500 to 3,500 square feet in area. The Master Plan continues, "The structure echoes, in an abstract form the nature of many primiUve Indian structures. The courtyard takes on the circular plan reminiscent of ceremonial buildings, such as the traditional Pomo roundhouse. The Continued on page 17 Craig Northrup. Photo oy Jose Esparza Little Cloverdale One of two bands from U.S. going to International Music Festival in Vienna Craig Northrup, Director of Music for the 1960 International Youth and Music Festival, to take place in Vienna, Austria in July, visited Cloverdale High School on Monday, March 17, where he presented a fascinating talk along with color slides depicting the highlights of the trip and Festival in which the Ckwerdale High School Band has been invited to participate. The Band, who will be one of two from the United States going to Austria for the Festival will fly in a route passing (,ver the Hudson Bay, Maine and then landing in London and on to Austria. Northrup informed Bandmaster, Steve Connoily that out of the twelve bands selected from the United States only two are preparing to go. The other is the "Marching Patriots" from the Adalai Stevenson High School, Lake Barrington Shores, Illinois Northrup, Director of Music for the Saratoga High School Band, who was the winner of the Festival in 1974, ex- plained to the students that a national search is done each year to select the finest bands in the United States. He had heard the Cloverdale Band and was so impressed be became instrumental in Cloverdale receiving its invitation.

Shown left to right Photo by Janice City Council Inflation may shoot down freeway bypass Inflation and declining state gasoline tax revenue may be the culprits in limiting funds that will be available for Cloverdale's long awaited freeway by- pass. "We are $19 million short of the estimate for the five year plan for this region," Metropolitan Transportation Commission regional planning manager Peggy Woodring told the Cloverdal City Council at a special meeting Friday. She attributed the shortage of freeway construction funds to inflated costs. Another problem faced by the state is that, because California motorist are driving less and using less fuel, there is a decline in gasoline sales tax revenue. The money has been a prime source for highway construction funds. "I'm becoming increasingly more apprehensive about the validity of it actually happening," said William Lucius, MTC vice-chairman and a former Healdsburg City Councilman, of the Cloverdale by-pass. Shrinking funds for proposed freeways means all projects have to be studied carefully, according to Woodring. "My real concern is to study all the alternatives we have for the by- pass," she said. Under consideration are four separate plans for Cloverdale's proposed 4.4 mile by-pass east of town from Kelly Road to the Preston Bridge. City Councilmen have already gone on record in favor of a proposed $21 million four lane freeway with all en- trance and exit ramps for main ar- teries.. A second proposal is for a $17 m Continued on page 17
