Cloveraale blacked out Last Wednesday night at 6:40 p.m., right in the middle of the World Series Baseball game, all power in Cloverdale and the surrounding area was cut off. According to the California Highway Patrol, Maurice Jack O'Brien of Oakland, driving south on 101 in a Peterbilt Tractor with semi-trailer, pulled off the road just north of Kelly Road to adjust his load. As he pulled to the right side of the road the trailer swayed, overturned and hit a power pole. Residents and businesses reported being without power from 4S minutes to 3% hours. Clausen's District Chairman: "Bork's radio spots disgusting campaign tactic" . Don Emerson, District Chairman for the Committee to Re-Elect Congressman Don Clausen, today labeled Norma Borg's radio spots as a "disgusting campaign tactic dealing in character assassination with utter disregard for the truth." "I demand that Norma Bark publicly repudiate those radio spots and to order the immediate removal of the fallacious spots from the air," Emerson said. v "The slimy allegations depicted in the radio spots simply are not true and Mrs. Bark knows it." Emerson con- tinued. "It is apparent from this vile person- al attack on Congressman Ciausen and his long and outstanding record as a public servant that Mrs. Bork is not competent to discuss the issues that face this nation, preferring instead to indulge in personal attacks of the lowest order," Emerson charged. "I am confident that the fair-minded citizens of all parties of this district will recognize Bork's vicious charges for what they are - malicious falsehoods," Emerson concluded.

However, the show stealer of the night was a little puppet called "Iggy" who commented on th# contemporary political scene in a short and simple way. The lady, Rhoda, a ventriloquist from Santa Rosa. captivated the crowd with such quips as "Congressman Clausen, what about some federal help for the Cloverdale bypass? Did the money stop in Marin County?" Congressman Causen replied. "No, it stopped in Sacramento." The real "meat" of the convention took place on Friday morning, October 17, when after a general membership session, a panel discussed the matter of the Cloverdale bypass. Present on that panel were Council member Marie Vandagriff from Cloverdale, John West, recently appointed head of CalTrans District, replacing T. R. Lammers and Robert Roumigulere, representing the Supervisors Association. Vandagriff was first to speak and gave a brief summary of background on the history of the Cloverdale bypass. Very methodically, she began to up- date thepresent situation in Cloverdale. "In June of 1959, the California Department of Transportation Project Report recommended the construction of a four lane freeway bypass in Cloverdale. On November, 1959, the Highway Commission adopted the current route location, and a freeway agreement for the bypass was executed during the spring of 1960." Vandagriff continued, "Nothing more was done until 1964 when funding for a four lane freeway was included in the 1964 Highway Planning Program. $4.4 million dollars was scheduled to begin construction in he 1970-71 fiscal year." "Design activities commenced and Continued on page 3 Return to Standard Time Sunday Daylight Saving Time will be phased out until next Spring on Sunday, Oc- tober 26. Actually, the return to Standard Time occurs at precisely two o'clock Sunday morning, but with the exception of some night owls, most of us will turn back our clocks and watches before turning off the lights Saturday night. The California State Automobile Association reminds motorists that coincident with this time change, it's good to re-evaluate our late afternoon and early morning habits. Though it happeus every year, drivers are frequently surprised to suddenly be heading home under nighttime con- ditions at an early clock hour. According to Wade Acton, executive vice president of the California State Automobile Association Inter- Insurance Bureau, "Driving conditions following a fatiguing workday can contribute to an increased accilont rate. Unless all motorists are prepared to cope with the added hazards of driving after dark, it could compound the danger potential." The CSAA official advised drivers that early darkness bi'ings the dual risk of reduced visibility and the glare of Continued on page 9 7 Jennifer Allen and Lori Angeli want to remind evveryone to turn their clocks baek Sunday night when Daylight Savings Time will be phased out until next spring.
