Since the Historical Society began its renovation of this historic home the fireplace and wall were removed m order to make the house more original and earthquake proof. This change will also provide more wall space to be used for artifacts and exhibits once the museum reopens. The brick has been salvaged to be used to close up the opening left by the former fireplace. This week the "hole m the wall" has been closed through the volunteer efforts of Chuck Belifiore, Ken Screechfield, Russ Armstrong and Frank Rittiman. When the brick was removed it showed how the walls were con- structed with two vertical layers of brick without studs, a unique form compared to today's homes. come to a consensus on a business plan before an agreement is signed. The three hospitals would be overseen by the Warrack Hospital Board, but each hospital would still be governed by its own indi- vidual board.

'he company is considering a number of options for the Pacific Group, including third party di- vestitures or spin-offs, preferably to shareholders, Montalvo said. "A finalized lease of our Sonoma Count'/ hospitals to Warrack would not be interrupted as a re- sult of any of these options."

Bry- a was praised for his services to the Senior Center and the new cen- ter project. Other committee members are Helen Stewart, Elizabeth Grange, Jean Greenhalgh and Marie Van- dagriff. Other sites investigated includ- ed the Veteran's building, Penny Fair Market, Citrus Fair arts and crafts building. Seghesio and Boe- hm properties among others. The committee also notes that the Main Street site acquired by the City from, Cal/Trans contains the provision that the property can- not be sold or used for any private business or home for 20 years. While this could be changed it would entail a lengthy legal pro- cedure. The property is comprised of 16,200 square feet - two city lots. The City has set aside $20,000 in the Community Development Agency's budget to do prelimi- nary planning for the Senior Cen- ter Project.

Project spearheaded by the Chamber of Commerce Interest in the possibility of de- veloping an 18 hole golf course on properties southeast of Cloverdale has been growingsmce the Cham- ber of Commerce decided to sup- port the idea. Chamber committee members, Director John Doble and Attorney Jim DeMartini, are responsible for promoting the project. They wrote the City Council m October outlining the merits of a championship golf course m Clo- verdale and asking the city to as- sist m preparation of a feasibility study to evaluate the financial, environmental and legal con- straints that would be revolved m such a project. The Council considered the pro- posal at the Nov. 19 meeting and indicated the City would consider the request again m December. The Council felt more information regarding available financing through the Community Redevel- opment Agency, would be need- ed before any money could be corn- miffed. Attome Ken ad- ler a project Outside the boundaries of the Development Agency is possible if specific benefits to the Agency can be identified. Planning Director Joe Heckel prepared a detailed report for the Council which he presented Nov. 19. His report shows properties to be included m such a feasibility study include a major parcel owned by Louisiana Pacific, Inc. at its old sawmill site, and other smaller privately owned parcels. The acreage is identified m the City's general Plan as "Area II." In 1994 Louisiana Pacific (LP) engaged the RRM Design Group, a planning/engineering firm, to prepare a specific plan to see if a golf course would be feasible. Work proceeded on this project until Jan. 23, 1996 when the City was informed by the design group that all planning efforts on the plan were suspended. Reasons given for the suspension were need of an appraisal, the need to respond to offers to purchase the property, and changes in the corporate struc- ture of Louisiana Pacific, Inc. During the time the design group worked on the plan many tasks were completed included a .Second Annual Cloverdale Holiday B&B Tour set for December 4 Continuing the tradition start- ed last year, on December 4,1997 from 5-8 pm, the Second Annual Cloverdale Holiday B&B Tour will be. held, with the addition of an- other B&B, a notable Victorian and the model homes at Del Webb's Clover Springs. Participating this year again will be: Abrams House, 314 N. Main, and its owner Patti Robarts; Shel- ford house, 29955 River Rd., owned by Bill and Lou Ann Bren- neck; and Vintage Towers, 302 N.

The B&B's will be Outfitted in their holiday decor, ready to wel- come you. The Tour last year was such a success, that plans were made to_ add Victorian Homes to the event, allowing the community to see these "painted ladies". We are fortunate to ltave this year the Perrault Victorian. The Perrault Victorian is located at 117 Oak- brook Lane and is owned by Bob and Debbie Perrault. This unique home will provide an interesting contest in the building and design of a classic Victorian, being a modern rendition. And wait until next year to see who's Victorians will be on tour. As a special feature, Del Webb will celebrate the oj)ening of their model homes ifi conjunction with this year's Tour and will feature professionally decorated models, wassail bowls, yule logs and oth- er holiday surprise to share with guests. Those visiting the Del Webb Clover Springs model homes will be shuttled to the B&B's and Victorian. Again this year, each location will feature wine tasting from lo- cal premium wineries, including: Clos du BOis, deLorimier, Seghe- sio, Pedroncelli, Sommer Vine- yards, Bandiera and Wattle Creek along with food pairings created by the talented caterer's and res- taurants of Cloverdale. $10 tickets will be on sale through the Cloverdale Chamber of Commerce, Del Webb Sales Office, and at the B&B's. The tick- et is good for admission to all of the locations. Proceeds will bene- fit the Cloverdale Wine and Visi- tor Center. This is your opporturdty to meet the families who own these gor- geous and historic homes, and share a unique experience now becoming a Cloverdale tradition. Put on your holiday finery and step back in time to a Victorian Holiday Season. Happy Holidays!
