Pilots warned of dangerous volcanic ash All aircraft pilots are warned that volcanic ash from the Mt. St. Helens volcano in southwest Washington has now reached an altitude in excess of 60,000 feet and extends 250 miles wide through several states, according to the Federal Aviation Administration Pilots planning flights into or near these known areas should contact the nearest FAA Air Traffic Control facility prior to takeoff for updated information on the movement of the dangerous volcanic ash. As of four o'clock on May 20, satellite pictures showed the most dense band of volcanic ash to extend across Washington and Montana, and then south-southeastward to the southern border, running through Idaho, Continued on page I! City Council Protest of Grand Jury report continues Cloverdale City Council members have ordered a letter to be sent to Sonoma County Superior Court Judges to let them know the city is unhappy about a recent grand jury report that alleged conflicts of interest by "one or more city employees". The letter, which will be written by City Attorney John Klein, will also tell th e judges the council feels that future grand juries should have more in- struction and training. Klein and the council are listurbed that the grand jury's report did not offer any further information to back up the conflict of interest allegation. The report said the jury has received "evidence" bqt the lack of a city conflict of interest code in Cloverdale makes prosecution impossible Klein maintains that state statutes are available for prosecution in such cases. "What's wrong with this case is that it has been publicized. I can't think of any legal means to make the grand jury rectify its mistake," said Klein. He explained that all grand jury in- vestigations are secret and cannot be opened to public scrutiny. Klein said the jury's report "doesn't say there is anythning wrong. It is really hypothetical. As a lawyer, I would tend to believe the grand jury has nothing in its report." He said the "'evidence" the juw claims to have could be a "crank complaint or pet peeve" from a citizen. Mayor Jack Domenichelli said it is disturbing to think that an individual could make a complaint to the grand jury which would then "flip that into the newspapers." City Councilwoman Marie Vandagriff said "I think their irresponsible action has shattered my faith in all grand juries. I always held them in esteem and thought they had credence." CONFLICT CODE Council members deferred adoption of a new conflict of interest code until June 10. The code will apply to the council, planning commission and city administrator. The council also decided to include the city attorney, engineer, superin- tendent of public works, assistant superintendent, and planning con- sultant. They will be placed in a special category in thel code that will allow them to protest their inclusion. Any of the five employees can request a special council hearing to state why they should not be bound by the conflict code. FREEWAY BYPASS City Engineer Dick Carlile told the council a new Cloverdale Bypass project report calls for construction to star! in 1986. A recent estimate was 1984. "'The whole thing is grinding to a slow halt," said Carlile. Carlile also reported that another alternative construction plan for the bypass shows a four lane freeway as far as First Street where an overpass would be built. The rest of the new part of Highway 10l would be a two lane expressay. Carlile said this plan "does make some sense" because no dangerous ground level intersection would be built on the expressway portion of the bypass. The freeway portion would have regular on and off ramps. Continued on page 11 Weather DATE HI LOW May 26 76 43 May 27 77 44 May 28 72 42 May 29 78 49 May 30 79 47 May 31 80 51 June I 80 51 RAIN .04
