Blackmon noted that tunnel fires can be "long and drawn out." The tunnel near the First Street ceme- tery in Cloverdale caught fire sev- eral ye.ars ago and lasted for months, he said. Smoke may remain visible off and on to passing motorist on Highway 101 and residents of the area. Blackmon said the tunnel structure is expected to continue to bum for at least a week until the fire is smothered by the lack of air. The tunnel has not been used since railroad services stopped over 10 years ago. The tunnel is 1,800 feet long and was originally built in 1898. It was refurbished in 1969 and used up until 1997 when train trav- el ceased because the train tracks to the north in the Eel River canyon have become unusable as a result of landslides and weather related damage. The cause of the fire is still being investigated. Oal Wednesday, fire persdnhel respdnded !o the burning railroad tunneJ.; rt ' " h of Cloverdale.

In the meantime, the duction of City of Cloverdale approved a new economic development plan that included the Micro Enterprise program. The city went a step further and obtained federal funding through the Sonoma County Community Development Commission that will leverage the Wells Fargo and Bank of America money, sustaining the program through June 2012. "Since none of us speak Span- ish," said Bob Cox, one of the three CAFI members and like Russell a member of the City Council, "an important challenge for us was reaching the Latino community, which is nearly 40% of our population." The three men approached Father Thomas Devereaux, Pastor of St. Peter's, knowing that the parish had a large Latino congregation. "Father Devereaux knew about Micro Enterprise and was willing to help," said Cox. Devereaux put CAPE together with George Ortiz, founder and retired CEO of California Human Development Corporation, a Santa Rosa-based nonprofit that has long worked with Latino families throughout northern Ca/iforrda. Ortiz met with some of the leadership of the local Latino congregation and convinced them to give CAFI's initiatives a chance. "That got the ball rolling for us," said Cox. "George has continued to advise us and it was because of his involvement that we were able to get a grant from Wells Fargo. That grant was important because it was the first fundIng for actual services." Building on the momen- tum created by Ortiz, CAFI has been able to attract bi-lingual volunteers Rosie Rocha and Andrea Sanchez to conduct the outreach and promotion to the local Latino community. "Our ability to access federal grant money really had a lot to do with County Supervisor Mike McGuire," said Rich Cowart, another of the three CAFl mem- bers. "He met with us while still Supervisor-elect and set up a meeting with County staff, and we were able to have a discussion about use of Community Develop- ment Block Grant funds."

The district has sold $8 million out of the $17 million in bonds ap- proved by voters. The district has three years to spend the first $8 mil- lion. In other business the board heard a report from Superintendent Clau- dia Frandsen on a recent budget study session. An increase in fur- lough days for administrators, with no increase in salary was approved; use of all federal ARRA funds that expire Sept. 30, 2011 was also ap- proved. This will ensure full use of 'all these funds and will permit a clearer analysis of on-going deficit spending in the 2011-12 budget, ac- cording to Frandsen; reduction of lottery allocation to site budgets and use of lottery funds for an on- going technology budget.
