Fire Railroad Continued from Page 1 have knocked the candle over. The dog was killed in the fire. When Steinman and her children arrived on the scene after midnight, the house was a total loss. Steinman was shocked to find the Red Cross at her door by 4 a.m. with vouchers for a room at the Holiday Inn in Ukiah, meals at Denny's and a gift certificate from Wal-Mart to by some clothes and other necessities. "You don't realize how great the Red Cross is until it happens to you," she said gratefully. Steinman and the children will be able to stay at the Holiday Inn until Thursday. After that, she's not sure what will happen. The children's father lives in Ukiah and they may be able to stay with him for awhile, she said. Embarrassed at donations already coming in, Steinman said she's thankful for the help nonetheless. What she really needs, she said, is some financial advice: how to apply for loans, what funding may be out there for her to replace her home with a trailer or other structure. She said she's been told she's not eligible for any social service programs because she is employed. She works three jobs: at the Redwood Health Club, at All Forest Products and for a local caterer. On Monday, Steinman was upbeat but admitted her situation hasn't really sunk in. She knows she's lost more than her home. "I'll miss the photos of the kids, the videos of them, those memories," she said. Anyone wishing to contact Steinman can do so through the Redwood Health Club in Ukiah at 468-0441. Gangs Continued from Page 1 said. Several petitions, signed by area residents, urge Massini to "prosecute these crimes to the fullest extent of the law." Since the arrests, Roberts said, no one has "tagged" the area's traffic circles or signs with graffiti. "The islands are painted white npw and we've had no more problems." Area residents she said, "have worked vuy hard to improve the safety and aesthetics .in this neighborhood," and the group wants to send a message to gang members, at least some of whom reportedly live in the area: Continued from Page 1 "Rail-Ways has been absolutely great," she said. NCRA Vice-Chairman Dennis Wood, in a press release about the $507,000 advance, said he was grateful for the aid offered. Wood added it had become clear during the recent round of discussions that the NCRA needed to regain the confidence of the government agencies it works Escape "We're not going to be victims. We're not going to put up with this." To get the message out as strongly as possible, Roberts and other members of the group will address the City Council, seeking a "letter from (the Council) in support of our efforts." She urges Ukiah residents "who want to put a stop to gang- related violence" to attend the meeting and support the Wagensellers group's petition. "This is just not a Sidnie Court issue," Roberts said. "It's happening all over the city. We're just being vocal about it." The council meets at 6:30 p.m. in the Ukiah Civic Center. with. "We have to complete our outside audits," he said, "resolve the FEMA audit issues, and regain the confidence of the California Transportation Commission. "This latest round of support by the Wilson administration is a clear signal that this railroad has a future, but the agency needs to take control of its destiny." Continued from Page 1 system to prevent such escapes. "We thought we had installed security when we built the building. We knew there was an area where a person could get from one area to another. We thought there was security grating. What was supposed to be there wasn't," he said. After breaking a hole in the ceiling and climbing into the duct, the inmates were able to find their way to the public corridor, where there is no jail staff, break another hole in the duct and ceiling and drop down. McDermott said finding the unstaffed corridor was probably dumb luck because no one, to his knowledge, knew the ducts weren't reinforced. He said the security breach is being fixed. The inmates apparently were seen by people visiting other inmates, but no one turned them in, McDermott said. "They didn't say anything," he said. At least not to law enforcement. "I believe one of them said, while interviewed on the radio, 'I've been in and out of this facility; I'm not going to turn them in,' " McDermott said. From the third-floor public corridor, the two men, wearing their jail-issued sweatshirts inside-out over their pale blue jail outfits, caught an elevator to the second floor and walked out with a group of visitors. The escapees' luck didn't hold out for long. Both went to places they were likely to get caught - Hagan to a bridge he was known to frequent, and King to his brother's house. "I think that's very typical," McDermott said. Mendocino County Sheriff's spokesman Capt. Kevin Broin said deputies were tipped off to King's whereabouts during a burglary investigation. But they would have looked for him eventually at his brother's home anyway, he said. Broin said Mendocino County has been lucky when it comes to jail escapes. "It's been six or seven years since we had somebody escape," he said. Directors meeting TAiesday The NRCA is holding its March meeting Tuesday at 10 a.m. at City Hall in Cloverdale. The board will discuss long- range planning goals and will hear a report from Director Sheridan Malone on Mendocino County's Regional Transportation Plan. The Mendocino Council of Governments first prepared the county's RTF in 1990, updated it in 1994, and readopted it in 1996. According to Malone, the plan calls for "a safe, energy efficient and balanced multi-modal system" which should be "imple- mented on the basis of area and regional priorities which view the transportation system in total and not by individual modes." Malone does not think MCOG's recent decision to reserve all $17.3 million in 1998 state transportation money for the Willits bypass matches up with the goals of its own plan. In his report to the NCRA, Malone says: "The recent decision by MCOG to fund the Willits bypass with all of the local money from SB 45" is not consistent with its own plan. Arrest Continued from Page I Johnson said he doesn't have any details about the South Lake Tahoe bank robbery. Hynes is being held in the El Dorado County Jail, and bail is set at $60,000. Ukiah police have been told the FBI will seek a federal indictment for Hynes and they plan to prosecute him at the federal level.
