The B-2 has never crashed and should not be confused wi fh Bl15 that recently went down at an airshow, Beyma said. According to General Richard E. Hawley, US Commander, the B-2 combines four characteristics never before captured on the same aircraft: intercontinental range, large payload, advanced precision weaponry, and stealth technolo- gy. He states, "The B-2 is almost as revolutionary as the concept of flight itself....It is an aircraft for all seasons - a true renaissance in aerial achievement." The 13-2, with a crew of two, can cruise 6000 miles on one tank of gas. The plane can reach any tar- get in the world from just three strategically located bases in the United States with a large pay- load. The significance of these features is that two B-2 bombers can do what it took 38 bombers to accomplish in the past and can operate from US bases. The B-2 can save lives, and cut costs of electronic jamming, and air de- fense suppression aircraft required to protect non-stealthy aircraft, the Northrup Grumman brochure points out. The aircraft is unique with its engines mounted on top of the flying wing design. Colonel Beyma was introduced by Program Chair Nancy Avansi- no.

Based on concerns expressed within the community and before the Council in the past with the number of blighted properties in Cloverdale, Planning'Director Joe Heckel undertook the work some months ago to work toward strengthening the City's nuisance abatement process. Goal of the long-term program is to prompt property owners to either upgrade their property or, in the case of seriously substan- dard buildings, to abate and de- molish them. The program calls for the Police Department working with the building inspector to identify and document nuisance violations in town. It entails creation of a code enforcement team, involvement of the Pride Committee, when ap- propriate, and a nuisance abate- ment procedure. The latter will be implemented by the municipal penalty ordi- nance, which wiU allow the dry to Ru rum to imok IMp Phi win hold their "Holiday Craft 1- 2 at the Cloverdale and crafters will for the holi- year P 7 o 118 years of serving the community 35 Cents Train depot and rail platform project underway Spring '98 First in Sonoma County Cloverdale is about to enjoy a very heady experience when it becomes the first City in Sonoma County to see the completion of a Transit Center, Depot and Rail Platform. According to David Knight, Acting Deputy Director of the Sonoma County Transportation and Public Works Departments, Cloverdale's depot and rail plat- form will go to bid this winter and construction will begin for the $1.2 million project in the Spring, The bid documents will be is- sued soon with the opening sched- uled for late January or early Feb- . ruary. "We have the financing lined up for this project which will put Clo- verdale first, ahead of everyone in the County, to have such a full- blown transit facility," Knight said. Earlier the Park and Ride lot, which represents Phase 1 of the project was dedicated in Clover- dale. Knight has spearheaded this project for several months with the support and cooperation of Supervisor Paul Kelley and Con- gressman Frank Riggs. Also this week a $1.5 million development of the Geyserville Visitors' Center through the Hous- ing and Urban Development De- partment's 1998 appropriation, was announced by the Congress- man. The Center will be a combina- tion visitor's and intermodal trans- portation facility showcasing the Alexander Valley premium wine- growing region tourist economy while protecting the agriculture uses through reliance on public transportation access. EDC topic for study session Because less funding is avail- able in the current two year bud- get for economic development programming in Cloverdale, the City Council acting as Directors of the Community Development Agency (CDA), has scheduled a work study session to be held Wednesday, Oct. 15 at 6:30 p.m. in the Chamber of Commerce office, 105 N. Cloverdale Blvd. to discuss with the community the future of economic development planning in Cloverdale.

Ace Hardware to move to empty Clover Market building The runffors are true--Ace Hardware is moving south to the vacant Clover Supermarket Building. Ace owner Will Jopson says the move gives him an opportunity to expand, add more merchandise and carry more variety. "The community wants us to carry more things and when the opportunity came up to have more room, we took it," Jopson said. Jopson has owned the Ace Hardware store in Cloverdale for the past six years, and during those years he says they have constantly been upgrading and expanding, but are now running out of room. "As we look to the future and we expand, we have to have the space to offer our customers more merchandise. This move will allow us to have the room," he said. According to Jopson, work will probably begin e end of November to improve and convert Clover Market into a hardware store. He said he is happy to have Longs Pharmacy and Treasure Cove Pizza as neighbors. The new hardware store, which will feature a modem layout, should open towards the end of February, '98. Sydney Sciaini and her husband Bob own the building Jopson currently leases. Sydney says they have an attractive property and are confident they will find another tenant. I I IIII I I I I II
