Editor Yearly Subscription Rates Sonoma, Lake and Mendocino Counties 9.00 Elsewhere in the United States 9.$0 Editorial Fire statistics are staggering Did you know that in the past five years arson fires have increased 200percent in the United States? We didn't until Milt Holt, Cloverdale Fire Chief told us. "Fire Prevention Week" is coming up the second week in October, and some of the fire statistics are staggering. FOR ONE, over 12,000 deaths a year are attributed to fires. And this has been the approximate figure each year for the past ten years. An appalling amount of these tragedies were caused by arsonists. We can't help but wonder if these criminals realize by setting a fire, they could be sentenced to Hill I IIII III I II I ]11 IIII II I I III prison for a term of two to five years depending on the severity of the crime. And where deaths occur, from a fire they haveset they could be tried for manslaughter or second degree murder. It doesn't seem possible that anyone could want to take a chance on spending years locked up in prison for the thrill of seeing a flame - or whatever pleasure they derive. Last Wednesday there was a fire in Cloverdale and one on Thursday. These two fires were not the work of arsonists, Holt said. However, the largest percentage of fires, to which the department responds are arson related. Chief Holt asked us to remind the residents of the area that this is the time of year to clean out fireplaces and chimneys. Pitch has had a chance to build up and could cause a fire, especially now when it's getting cooler and fireplaces will be used more often. The fire department will be alad to ao to anyone's home or business for a fire inspection. All you have to do is call, he said, and ask for this service. There isn't any charge. No one could ask for anything more. If we want badly enough to change these fire statistics in our area, we can help by being alert to any suspicious actionswe might get regarding fires, and by reporting them to either the police or fire department. We urle everyone to do so! Another bit of information Chief Holt asked us to relate is about an uhusual class the Fire Depart- ment will be offering to all people in the fire service. On Saturday and Sunday, September 27 and 28, the State Fire Marshall will be holding an automobile extracation class from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Fifteen or more firemen have signed up for the class. Already 80 percent have had the training, he said, but will want to take a brush-up class again. ,   , i ! Letter to the Editor Editor: This  morning, around twenty minutes to eight, my daughter-in-law, Cheryl, and I were driving to Heal- dlsburg where we work. I was driving under the speed Barely misses her Latter-day Saints Churches when a young girl ran in front of my car. I thought, "I can't stop in time, I'm going to kill this We were not beingtail-gated so we were not struck from behind. Her ride had let her off on the other side of the freeway, at least, in looking back, we saw a car pull not do this to your children, do not do this to innocent commuters.

The gate is to be City Clerk's Corner By BARBARA PEUGH City Clerk l attended the meeting at the Vets Hall last night regarding the Cloverdale History Book that is being put together for publication. It was really impressive to see the great crowd that attended. So, along the same vein I decided to let you know a little about the historic items City Hall is trying to preserve. We have a beautiful old (1884) map of Cloverdale that had been graciously presented to Cloverdale by Mr. Charles Sedgley some years ago. It has been hanging in an old black frame for many years. The frame did not do justice to the map so I have taken the map in to be rematted and framed with nonglare glass in a beautiful document type setting. The map will be set in a museum-type cover that will show up much better than it has in the past. It will be bolted to the wall in the Council Chambers for all to enjoy, hopefully it will be ready to hang by the time you are reading this. Hopefully, word will get around to new people moving into Cloverdale, people who never saw what Old Cloverdale looked like, and we hope they will drop by to take a look at this in- terestmg artifact. I am going to try to obtain a print to send in to the Hisory Book unlocked during the day hours so members friends may visit the graves. so that this might be in. eluded into our local history book. As I have found the time I have redone all the files in the Legal Files to show AP No. of the property, names of original owners, and description of locations of properties and have labeled the f'fles accordingly and have separated them into categories. There is some interesting Cloverdale history in these old deeds and easements. In doing this, one day I found the original purchase agreement on the City Fire Dept.'s old 1929 LaFrance. Sometimes this job is more fun!! Just a sample of all the interesting things I have found, take a look at some of these items: There are deeds to the city from J.F. Hoadley for right-of-ways dated 1879 and 1884, blocks 4 and 9 of Cloverdale. These are handwritten and one must study carefully to decipher the handwriting. There is a deed from F.J. Bowman to the city for Street Purposes dated lS, and it speaks of First Street and angles through the McElarney Estate and goes through the Larriboe lot.

One of those questions, discussed by the Board at some length Monday af- ternoon (August 15), is the matter of proposed reclamation of terrace mining pits by industry. The Board on a straw vote earlier this month approved 10-year permits for terrace mining operations, but that stipulaton was based on allowing flow of river bedload, as well as silt, to refill terrace mining pits. If the reclamation flow were go be limited to silt along, the refilling process would take substantially longer. The board pondered over that problem as Irwin Luck- man, environmental engineer and consultant for Kaiser Sand & Gravel, cautioned the board that industry's estimates on reclamation time frames were based on. bedload flow, as well as silt. In addition to that, Luck- man pointed out, industry planned putting back unused materials in the mining process, plus topping off overburden" that had been removed as the digging of each terrace pit was com- menced. Supervisor Brian Kahn commented it evidently would take longer to refill the pits by using silt flow alone, and this should be considered Horseless Carriage Club Visits Cioverdale at Veterans Memorial Building, 2 p.m. FOOTBALL, Cloverdale v. Calistoga here (high school). 6 in establishing reclamation Supervisor Kahn suggested guidelines. The board is attempting to determine what constitutes" "successful" reclamation progress by industry as a condition for permitting or extending gravel extraction in terrace mining operations along the river. The majority of the board . favors granting 10-year permits to terrace operators, with a 5-year review of reclamation progress as a condition for extending the permit. Supervisor Helen Putnam declared that any reclamation plan adopted by the Board should be a flexible one, responsive to the needs of both the gravel industry and the general public. "We're setting some rigid guidelines to get them (the industry) started," she ad- ded. "more dialogue" would be needed with the gravel in- dusry if flow of river bedload into terrace pits were prohibited. Current discussions by the Board primarily involves planning staff, board members and county counsel, since the Board has ter- minated public hearing. Thus, industry represen- tatives can only sit and listen unless called upon by a Board member for clarification or specific information. Greg Carr, county planning consultant, told the board tha according to one source it would take about 40 years to refill I00 acres of terrace pits, using silt alone. The proposed Aggregate Resources Management Plan calls for designaUon of a gravel mining district, consisting of some 2,000 acres Card of Thanks Our hearts are full of appreciation for all kindnesses and prayers of friends, neigh- bors & relatives in all our  recent sorrow.

Only a maximum of 250 acres would be permitted to be mined in the ensuing ten years, however. Carr ex- plained that prime soil comprises only a minor portion of the district. Supervisor Kahn smzogested granting mining permits in the mining district, but only if Williamson Act contracts are cancelled in proportion to zoning and other limitations to be set forth in the reclamation plan.
