; Page 4 - Wednesday, July 30, 6980 Chamber Chatter By V1VIAN WEER THOUGHT: You know what? I don't care who shot J.R .... HEAR YE, HEAR YE: Robert McHale, Director of the Sonoma County Economic Development Board has put out an announcement to all Chambers in Sonoma County about three public hearings on the Commercial and Industrial Study. The purpose of these hearings will be to allow persons with specific input regarding the study to present their views to the E.D.B. for use in its current review of the C & I Study. The bearing, convenient to Clove/dale, will be held by the Healdsburg Chamber for North County residents on Thursday evening, July 31, from 7-10 p.m. at the Healdsburg Com- munity Center on 131 Matheson Street, Healdsburg. "If you have specific comments on the study and its recommendations, you are invited to attend," says McHale. For instance, there are those among us who feel that the Clove/dale General Plan was not taken into consideration in the area of industrial zoning for Cloverdale. Much of the land identified as Industrial in the Clove/dale Plan is not included in the County sudy. We desperately need more light industry in Cloverdale, and such planning at the county level could be prohibitive. Others feel that the length of time and complications in building according to the Sonoma County Planning Com- mission "rules" constitutes loss of time and money and sometimes results in the loss of an industry which would otherwise locate in Sonoma County. This is your chance to go and learn...or provide input. IT "MUSTER" BEEN GOOD: Wht ! know about Fire Department's competitions in "Muster meets" you could put on the end of a nozzle, but the Cloverdale team must have been pretty darned good when they met at San Jose on July 18 and 19 to come in second place over all: According to our source, teams came fromall parts of the West Coast and Canada to compete and it was covered by Channel 5 TV. Clove/dale did their thing in 30.2 seconds. I bet we will be hearinglots more about his group.. AND LET' HEAR IT: for Janice Cory, editor of this newspaper, who was awarded the American Legion Auxiliary's California Golden Press Award. The special citation for her excellent coverage of the Clove/dale High. School Band's invitation to the International Music Festival in Vienna was chosen from entries of 500 units and 30 districts throughout the state. Her series will now be sent to Boston to compete for the prize on the National level to be decided in August. Watch for more. ALL THAT GLITTERS: Ohe of the main experiences I had planned during my vacation was learning the trick of panning for gold. Unfortunately," my traveling companions were not all that enthused about stopping along the Trinity River and tiny creeks that whizzed by the window along Highway 299 east. Silently we passed dozens of dredge operations along the river and the fever mounted. Can a woman over 35 find happiness panning for gold in a floppy hat? At occasional stops at small out-of-the-way mining, camps where the settlements now depended on the tourist dollar instead of strikes, I managed to seek out pieces of information from old timers with such questions as "How do you pan for gold?" and "What does a nugget look like?" After the laughter subsided, I was able to learn a little bit here and there and pur'cnnse several small books on the subject. One was entitled "Finding Gold in a Campground." This en- couraged me, but failed to cause much excitement with the tour conductor. "Look for black sand and then dig down 6 inches," said the e lady at the store where I purchased a pan. That night I burned it over the open camp fir as per instructions and reread the information supplied earlier by the Cloverdal Library. lwas ready. The next morning, we checked into a resort with a swimming pool. There is no black sand in a swimming pool I was patient. LAND HO: The next day arrangements had been made to rent a patio boat and spend the better partof the day on Trinity Lake.. We packed apicnic and I smuggled my gold pan aboard just in case we might venture near a creek. "Don't worry about a thing," said the captain. "You just sit back and relax and get some sun. I'll do the navigating." Then he proceeded to bait his trolling lines and spent the next half hour getting all in readiness for the un, s uspecting fish. As soon as I realized we were going around in very large circles with the wheel spinning at its own will, I managed to take over the helm while the captain continued his eager trolling oblivious to our location and the fact that the water was becoming quite rough. Suddenly I cried out, "Black sand ahead!" and asked the captain's permission to go ashore. He granted permission absently, still wrapped up in his dream of catching the big one. What he didn't realize was that the black sand created the necessity of making a 90 degree turn rather abruptly. Needless to say there followed a booming five minutes of the saltiest language you ever heard. The lines had become so entangled, he simply cut the entire mess from the pole and lfitched the lure, lines and all into the drink. I scampered quickly onto the beach and dug great handfulla of black sand into my bucket. Finally, turned around, we headed in heavy silence back to camp. Two days later, when the captain began speaking to me again, it was decided to travel to Lake Ruth before the last day home. I was given permission to pan for gold anywhere r' wanted on the way. Needless to say, I was thrilled. We stopped at Mad River where ! Planned to pick up more information about the area and start panning. Mad River :(population 36) was having a flea market that day and all 36 s..-med to be there. Inside the small grocery store I encountered the very large ,*woman proprietor who wore a lot of makeup and long red ringlets in her hair. * "De you have any books on gold panning?" I asked eagerly. "Nape," she said abruptly. "And it wouldn't do you any good if we did... Ain't no gold this side of the mountain." I suddenly had the unlady like urge to hurl the cash register at her. Instead I bought some fish line and left. So ended the dream of a would-be prospector...Imt waiCll next year!

Allen and Lola are your hosts and this week they have featured complete dinners at very special prices. The choice this week was BBQ chicken at $3.45 and BBQ Beef Ribs (usually $6.25) on special at $4.45. We had the ribs and believe me, they are everything a rib lover could desire.

Early deer season will open Aug.2 An estimated 70,000 hunters will trail over the hot, dry foothill country of the central ,. coast and adjacent mountain areas Saturday (Aug. 2) with the opening of California's first general deer season. Hunters can look for few surprises, according to Department of Fish and Game field reports, but the opener is expected to be at least as good as or perhaps slightly better than last year's inaugural weekend. On the basis of tag returns, hunters last year took 7,860 bucks in the early season, a 9 percent success rate for 85,179 tag holders. Again this year, fire danger will be high-extreme in some sections of the open area--and hunters are cautioned to use care with fire. Hnntprs ais 9 are reminded of the boundary Chafige thai has placed the northeastern portions of Mendocino and Lake Countins-t raditionally in the early season area-into the late season. This year the areas are included in hunt zones B1 and B3. The change was made in part to conform hunt boun- daries to the concept of management of deer based on herd characteristics. Placing the areas in the late season is an attempt to separate migratory, from resident herds. Inthe past, said the DFG, some of the migratory deer were hunted twice in the same season, during both the early and late seasons. These deer, it was explained, have a later reproductive cycle than resident coastal herds. Formerly, the majority of the bucks taken in the nor- them part of the early season area had velvet-covered, soft antlers. This year, however, hunters will find most bucks with hard antlers, Most bucks. Will not enter the rut during the season. In ad- dition, the weather will be cooler.

The error involves the boundary running along Bell Springs Road near Leggett, Mendocino County, about 20 miles north to he Humboldt County line. Actually, the boundary line in that area is Highway I01, which runs norlhwest through Leggett to the counly line. Legal descriptions, as shown in the hunting regulations booklet, are correct, the DFG said. In both cases, hunters should read the descriptions carefully before going into the field. Access this year is largely unchanged from that for 1979. Again, there will be many special closures on both public and private land. As usual, the DFG includes the reminder that most of the early season area is in private land where per- mission to hunt is required. may take the seasonal limit of Iwo bucks, forked-horn or better. Sales of zone A tags had topped 50,000 by midweek and were expected to reach beyond 75,000 by opening day. The early season area extends along the coast and adjacent inland areas generally from the northern boundary of Mendocino Counly southward to the counties of Santa Barbara and Ventura and the nor- lhwest corner of L,os Angeles County. Shooting hours are one-half hour before sunrise lo one- half our after sunset in the season which will continue through Sunday, Sept. 14. Zone information-- including access, conditions and expected pressure and success--is included in the hunting regulations booklets available wherever licenses are sold. Hunters may obtain more information by calling (707) 944-2443 during normal HolderS of two zone A tagS  working hours on weekdays.
