Ziese said that of the felony arrests there were no Cloverdale residents. In the Healdsburg section of the detail, Ziese reports there have been several fatal accidents and was happy to say that once driv- ers noticed the large number of highway patrol cars on the road there was a significant reduction in speed. There were several people stopped who were driving with suspended licenses, or with re- voked licenses. Roughly 32 cars were impounded for up to 30 days. There were an estimated 45 misdemeanor arrests for drugs. Possession of less than a pound of marijuana is a misdemeanor. "Those folks were cited and then released," Ziese said. A stolen gun was recovered from one ve- hicle, along with a couple of other guns yet to be identified. Sixty citations were issued for traffic violations, and an addition- al 34 for mechanical corrections (fix-it tickets). And, 330 people can consider themselves lucky- this time. They received only verbal warnings. Furber Center given an 18 month extension An extension of a requirement for undergrounding of overhead utilities associated with the Furb- er Ranch Shopping Center and the Chevron/Redwood Oil station was granted by the City Council Oct. 22 through June, 1999, at the officers can search vehi- have reasonable cause. include vehicle occu- signs of intoxica- under the influence request of the Furbers and Red- paraphernalia like pla- or zig zag papers, the drugs, or if an officer's find drugs, hits on total of 87 vehicles were during the six day detail Oct. 25. : reports that there were 25 arrests for possession of transportation or for sales, or people influence. was roughly $400,000 of drugs confiscated, in- one sizeable shipment would not identify be- a continuing investiga- did say that it was not wood Off. The Furbers had initially re- quested an extension until Decem- ber, 1999 or until the issuance of the last building permit for the shopping center, whichever oc- cured first. The Council felt that this was to long a period of time. The agreement called for comple- tion of the undergrounding by December, 1997. Craig Furber told the Council that completion of the Center to its present level took longer than had been anticipated. He said that a lot of money had already been spent on undergrounding and that his company was making every effort to comply with the City's request to install conduits across S. Cloverdale Blvd. prior to Cal/ Trans resurfacing the street. H e " of the controlled substanc- included marijuana, . mushrooms, indicated he was havmg problems with Cal/trans in trying to accom- plish this. Some of the cars pictured above in Emerson Automotive's towyard were impounded as part of the CliP's Golden Gate Division Special Enforcement Unit crackdown on the stretch of 101 between Healdsburg and the Mendocino County Line. CHP Public Affairs Officer Wayne Ziese estimates that-32 cars were impounded, that 25 felony arrests and 45 misdemeanor arrests were made, that 60 citations for traffic violations were given and 330 verbal warnings made during the week-long detail Christmas baskets from Cloverdale Family Services Cloverdale Family Service will hand out Christmas Baskets this year, just as we have done for many years. Letters are going out to all of our churches, clubs, and other groups, and you will hear more from me through the Reveille. We don't want to see any family in Cloverdale go hungry or needy at Christmas. For the last few years, we have served more than 200 households with food, and many, many families with donated toys and warm winter clothing or blankets. Long gone are the days when we had 25 or so needy families, and "parceled them out" to churches, clubs and individuals. For many years now, we have committed to buying 250 Standard Boxes from the Redwood Empire Food Bank. They and the Salvation Army co-ordinate the Christmas Program with all the other providers in the County, and with the Social Service Department. Through donations, bulk buying and planning they are able to provide up to about $30 worth of foods (at least), Christmas for a family of four, for $10.50. It may be just a little bit more this year. Larger families get two or even three boxes. We stretch and supplement the boxes with donations from food-drives at our schools and churches, and from all of you. i I'm afraid we will have to raise $2800 to $3000, by December 1. We also count terribly on the Christmas generosity of Cloverdale, to carry us through the rest of the winter. Problems do not end with a Christmas dinner. As for toys and clothes, we will work for clothes with the Soropti- mists and Lions and the Community Thanksgiving Dinner. As it will already be cold, they will collect and distribute all the blankets, warm bedding and warm clothes they can at Thanksgiving. What is left, and whatever else we can collect, we will pass out the week before Christmas. All we ask of all you good people is please go through your closets as soon as possible. Warm bedding, winter clothing, sturdy children's school clothes-and anything for babies and toddlers. But please, clean. In good condition, useable as is. We do not have the personnel to go over and fix things. You may drop things off at the fire department and we will have much more for you later.
