MOAG & SO:,'S LDO:. .-': SPRINGPOT ICHI'3A. 492& As the voter registration deadline for the June Primary approaches, County Clerk Eeve T. Lewis reminds Sonoma County residents that they must be registered to vote by May 5 if they want to vote June 3. Residents who are already registered must reregister by that date if they have moved since they last registered (even if they have moved across the street). Voters who wish to change their party or who have changed their names should also reregister by that date, Miss Lewis said. Also, residents who are not 18 by that date, but who will be 18 by election day should also register by the May 5 deadline. Stamped, self-addressed postcard registration forms are available throughout the county at city halls, public libraries, various banks and savings and loans, realty and other offices and businesses. They are also available at the county Election Department. You should also be sure to notify the Election Department in writing of any change in mailing address.

"However, the method being advocated by the Federal Department of Transportation to allocate the remaining obligational authority for highways among the states causes an even greater hardship on California and is in our opinion grossly inequitable," she continued. The Federal Highway Administration plans to distribute the remaining balance of obligation authority to the states without considering the statue of planned obligations. This method penalizes those states, like California, which had planned to obligate the bulk of their federally-participating program in the latter half of the Federal fiscal year.CalTrans supports a more equitable formula based on sharing the reduction among all states in proportion to their percentage of highway program apportionments in 1980. On March 17, the federal government imposed a temporary freeze on federal highway obligations forcing Caitrans to halt advertisements on all federal-aid highway projects. The freeze was lifted recently, but before CaiTrans resumes its advertising schedule all highway projects will be assessed in light of the remaining obligation authority for this fiscal year. The status of projects  delayed by the freeze or scheduled for future advertisement has not yet been determined. After a lengthy period of negotiation. the Cloverdale City Council has granted permission for Cloverdale Ready Mix to remove gravel, sand and loam from cily property near the Russian River. The 20 year contract requires the firm Io pay Ihe city 28 cents per cubic yard removed from the land near the First Street Bridge When 25.000 cubic yards are taken, Cioverdale Ready Mix will pay 14 cents ard. The company has been y property Since J'an. 4, 1978 when its first contract with the city was issued. According to (he new contract, prices for [he removal of gravel, sand and loam can be renegotiated every three years. The council last week also asked City Attorney John Klein to draft a new ordinance that will follow regulation established by the 1975 state mining act. Mining reclamation plans must be filed under terms of the state act which applies to the excavation to be done by Cioverdale Ready Mix. The city still has the right to remove gravel, sand and loam from the properly as it needs it. ALLEY CLOSURE Council members unanimously ap- proved the closure of a block long alley thai runs from Main Street to East Street. "We'd like very much to see the alley closed." said nearby resident William Cordtz. He noted that in three years he has seen the alley used once - by two police cars, Councilman Clifford Snider, who has a dental office in the area. said he wasn't even aware of the alley's existence until the study of city alleys was made. Land along the city owned alley will be deeded to adjoining property owners. CITY PARK CUSTODIANS Mr. and Mrs. Larry Lagle were hired by the council to maintain city park. They will be paid a monthly salary of $876 for the work that was formerly done by a maintenance worker who resigned recently. The Lagles live in the park in a mobile home Io provide 24 hour security there. Lagle told {he council he plans to resign as a park and recreation com- missioner (o avoid any onflict with his new job. Paulsen sl"ow was a great success Comments from the large crowd attending the Pat Paulsen show in Co(at( last Salurday night were highly complimentary. "He's great ! .... What a performer", "There's nothing like a live performance by a top entertainer." As in everything else that has to do with helping the Cloverdale Band trip to Vienna. Cloverdale turned out enmasse for the performance, which was held at the "Inn of the Beginning." in Co(all, as a benefit for Ihe CHS Band. The "'Inn of the Beginning" is known lor providing lop name performers. Paulsen. wflh his unique humor, reminded Ihe crowd that they chose to elect Richard Nixon for president in- stead of him. You will remember thai Pat Paulsen ran for President on a Straight Talking American Government (STAG) plat- form back in 1968. and became a mlional figure in the political scene, achieving worldwide fame. Paulse||. his wife Jane and children live m CIoverdale on their ranch where Ihey are now building a new winery. Jane Paulsen is well-known for her work in the communily and is a vohteer al the tlealdsburg General Hospital COMPLAINT LETTER The council received another letter from Clover Crest Theater owner Michael Tompkins reiterating his complaint about the cancellation by the police department of a live concert on Feb. 16 at the theater. City Administrator Bud Groom said the cancellation was made by the mutual agreement of Tompkins and the police department. At a recent council meeting Tom- pkins was invited to  the matter wit Police Chief Rodney Persons. But in his letter Tompkins said "I'm fearful for my safety if I go to the police building." Mayor Jack Demenichelli said "it's the most ridiculous thing I've heard in my life" and offered to accompany Tompkins to the police department. Council members said future letter= from Tompkins on the matter will not be placed on the agenda "It's adding fuel to the fire," said Councilwoman Marie Vandagriff. .  HEARTWEEK .  The council 00pru Ceatlnaed on page 14 Angelo Scalese Marie Vandagrfff Cloverdale city election results This was the total tally of the election for the two City Council seats after all was said and done at the poles on April 8lh. Marie Vandagriff - 356 votes. Angelo Scalese - 333 votes. Dr. Clifford Snider - 321 votes. Everyone concerned agreed on two things. The race was very close and 23 percent turn-out of voters was about the Iowesl in Cloverdale's history. Councilman Marie Vandagriff, in- combent, has served on the Council ahoul 8 years. One of the reasons she chose to run for another four year term was her interest in good planning which she feels is important and inevitable with the completion of Warm Springs Dam. In her list of priorities she says we must continue to concentrate on the 101 by-pass and follow through on the annexations coming into the city. Mrs. Vandagriff has lived in Cioverdale for 26 years and has been employed by Dr. Sayre for the past 20 years. She and her husband, Bill have raised two children in Cioverdale; their daughter Valerie and son, Kirk. Councilman Angelo Scalese won his council seal by just eight votes. He was the only nonincumbent to seek election Io the City Council. Sca]ese feels that one of the most important problems in city government has been the lack of communication belween the community and the council. In a recent interview with the Reveille he said, "I have seen too many people go to City Council and ask for information and they don't get an an. swer." One of his main concerns is the complelion of the Cloverdale Freeway By-pass as originally planned. He is also inlerested in getting more industry Barbara Peugh into the Cloverdole area. In a statement of appreciation( to those who voted for him, he acknowledges that the race wire close. "However, you've done your part now I must fulfill mine. I will do the best I can to be fair and work with the City Council, but most of all I multi be fair with you." Scalese continues, "I would like to Continued oa pa 14 Weather DATE HI LOW April 7 71 36 April 8 72 41 April 9 71 48 April l0 77 44 April 11 87 45 April 12 85 45 April 13 81 45' RAIN 0.15
