The billions Redwood statistics are based on U.S. Census Bureau data, and were commissioned by the Tourism Office from the U.S. Travel Data Center in Washington, D.C. "This illustrates the. magnitude of travel as a contributor to the economy of the State and the Red- wood Empire," says Jack Macdonald of Eureka, Redwood Empire Association president. The Sonoma County study shows that visitor spending was $97,984,000, tourism payroll was $19,344,000 and tourism jobs was 2932. The Redwood Empire's south gateway, San Francisco, a major travel and convention center, had visitor revenues of more than $2 billion during the period, with a tourism- related payroll of $448 million supporting 61,722 jobs. The study covered only U.S.-originaLed tourists, nee the fast-growing foreign visitor market; thus, the State Office considers it conservative. It further reports that during 1978. the seven Redwood counties and their incorporated cities collected more than $3 million in taxes on hotel- motel, resort ac- commodations; and that travel-related business generated $14.6 million in State taxes.

Skaggs Springs hot pools closed Monday The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Monday closed the Skaggs Springs hot pools to the public because 410 acres in the area, which eventually will be inundated by Lake Sonoma, are being cleared. The corps said a $1.7 million contract has been awarded Unicon Con- struction Corp., Oakland, which began work Sep- tember 15. The hot pools, which a group "has fought to keep open, were closed "to preclude any safety hazard or risk of injury to the public" during the clearing operation, the corps' district engineer, COl. Paul Bazilwich, said. The area was opened in September, 1979, for walk-in day use by the public while construction of the main embankment of Warm Springs Dam was un- derway. Bazilwich said the area being cleared is between elevations 363 to 454 mean sea level. Vegetation below elevation 363 will be left for the fisheries management program, and that above elevation 454 will be utilized in the recreation areas. .016 Guage VINYL TILE $15 oo 45-12x12" Squares Carpet Special Multi-Color 100 Percent Nylon Face- Low Pile Loop Carpet NOW JUST S4"=yd.
