Clover Springs early_ sales unprecedented Opening. weekend rush Nick Brooks, Del Webb's spe- cial Projects Sales Manager, has announced that the launch of Clo- ver Springs, the company's first wine country active adult com- munity, has been one of the most successful ever for the develop- er. Of the initial release of 48 homes and homesites currently for sale, a remarkable 25% sold out on the opening weekend. The first res- idents are expected to move into the community in early spring, 1998. "Response has been unprece- dented for a community of this kind," Brooks commented. "Our buyers tel/us that for them, Clo- ver Springs has filled an impor- tant gap in the Sonoma County homes market as it offers the ben- efits and amenities of a more con- ventional active adult communi- ty, but with a uniquely rustic wine country location and life-style. We're right in the heart of one of California's leading wine regions, and just down the road from the majestic North Coast redwoods - not to mention an easy drive from all the cultural attractions of the Bay Area. It would have been hard to find a more beautiful site in Northern California." Del Webb's Clover Springs com- munity will feature approximate- ly 350 single-family detached homes and such amenities as a fitness center, club and meeting rooms, bocce and tennis courts, an outdoor swimming pool, and walking and biking trails. Also featured are the remains of the old Moulton hill Winery. Built in the 1800's, this winery form a link to Sonoma County's rich and color- ful history and will be the focus of several of Del Webb's recreational amenities, Brooks said. Clover Springs, located on S. Cloverdale Blvd. is offering three home styles ranging in price from the mid,$160,000's to mid- $200,000's.

Fire Board deadlocked 2-2 on staffing issue Cloverdale Fire District direc- tors are deadlocked on making a decision regarding the replace- ment staffing for the position now vacant following the August res- ignation of Captain Ron Barney. At the October meeting two board members, Chair Janet Col- lins and Director Terry Stewart were in favor of Option Five as submitted by Fire Chief Jack Rose- year. This option would include the 10 shifts Barney covered per month by paid volunteers and qualified interns and a contract with the California Department of Forest- ry fire crew from November through June. Directors Gary Jones and Coby Richards favored Option Seven which would include hiring a per- manent replacement for Barney 'plus paid volunteer/intern cover- age November through May. Cost of Option Five would be $59,071 this fiscal year. Option Seven would cost $82,125 which includes the District's obligation to pay Barney accumulated vaca- tion time still due him when he resigned. Jones and Richards are support- ing the views of some of the volun- teers who have urged the Board to fill Barney's position with a full- time employee. Director Chris Andersen, whose vote would have broken the tie, was absent on vacation. A special meeting was sched- uled Oct. 20 Building meeting when the Boardvoted on the staff- ing issue once more. (The meeting was held after the Reveille's dead- line.) Both options would provide minimum staffing of two people on call 24 hours, a level the Chief has said provides a higher degree of safety for crew members on duty. .
