Those feelings are manifested in quick turns, big leaps and martial arts kicks and punches. The choreography focuses on a woman's strength, much different than the light and feminine nature of other forms of dance like ballet. "This is letting them get into the other side of being female," Banchero said. The dance will be performed by Feat of Freedom this spring at the Mendocino College Dance Festival. The woman Banchero has been dancing for 22 years. She first trained in jazz, but as a child she also learned from another end of the dance spectrum: classical ballet. Her transformation as an activist- performer came while as a college student at the State University of New York at Buffalo, where she studied modern dance and women's studies. She soon found the two inseparable in composing her own pieces. "I was using the themes I was getting from my other major in women's studies. It was a really wonderful balance," Banchero said. The competitive nature of tfie dance industry, especially the focus on body image, gave way to Banchero's interest to bring women's issues into her performances. She has come to believe that dance and social messages should work together. "Often times the strict dance world or dance studio that doesn't talk about so many of these affirming val- ues, the kids end up being really competitive and really focused on their image," said Banchero, who also directs a children's program within Dance Brigade. The heart of such lessons on female empowerment came within the poem recited during the dance. "We, Sojourner Truth's children, the children of Emma Goldman, Rosa Luxemberg, Ida B. Wells and Ella Baker, we, the green, the freedom claiming and self-determining are undoing your murderous mania," states the poem. And as the activism continues, so does the dance. "They are at the middle of the train that Harriet Tubman started," Banchero said. "They're keeping the movement going by being in this lineage and this ancestry and expressing themselves this way." Skunk Continued from Page 1 tions, online or by phone," Hart said. However the ticket is obtained, it will be good for one of three daily runs from Willits throughout the late spring and summer. Don't count on an excursion to Fort Bragg, however. "We're planning to run hour-and-a-half long trips up the mountain, through Tunnel Number 2, to the Wolf Creek turnaround point (and back to Willits)," Hart said. The shorter runs, he said, are designed to attract tourists on the Highway 101 corridor. Those driving through will be able to give in to the impulse to try out the train, without having to plan for an all-day journey. What they experience while on the train is still in the planning stages. "We've budgeted for entertainment," Hart said. Entertainment, however, won't include riding behind an historic steam engine, at least not from the Willits de-pot-at least not yet. "Diesel locomotives pulling passenger cars or self- propelled motor cars (will leave from Willits)," Hart said. "Steam engines will be only out of Fort Bragg." The Willits runs will leave at 10 a.m., noon and 2 p.m. until Sept 5. The morning and noon runs will continue daily through October. In November and December, the two runs will take place on Saturdays only. The trips will cost $20 for adults and $10 for children between 3 and 12 years old. Children under 3 ride free. Leaving from the Fort Bragg side, the trains will make 3.5-hour runs to the Northspur midpoint and back. The ride will cost $45 if the cars are pulled by a steam engine and $35 if an-other sort of engine is used. Charter trains will be available from either station and may include more time and distance on the track. Hart says Sierra is fully prepared to help on-track customers celebrate birthdays, weddings, and other special events. Reservations can be made by calling 1-800-866-1690 or 964-6371. County Continued from Page 1 divided into 10 groups, with those making the most money per year being in the 10th group, and those making the least money being in the first decile. Those in the 10th decile would take a pay cut amounting to 10 percent of their annual salary; the ninth decile would accept a 9 percent cut; and so forth down to those in the first decile, who would only have to absorb a one percent cut. Colfax argued the county's workforce was developing into a "class system" of the very rich and the very poor, and his graduated salary furlough would help to ameliorate that condition while saving the county the requisite $2.2 million. His proposal was appended to Andersen's array of recommendations by a 3-2 vote, with Delbar and Campbell voting no. In a published statement, Andersen explained his budget plans would have painful impacts. "Service levels, the public, and employees will be im-pacted," he said. "We have attempted to address those impacts in a way that best manages the overall risks to the public and the organization. In addition, I believe that with reduced resources we must maintain realistic expectations of what can be accomplished during the next 12 months and attempt to focus our resources toward our highest priorities and the most critical issues that may emerge." During the morning portion of an all-day March 10 meeting, various department heads addressed how budget cuts would affect their departments. id nature Theatres Secret Window Daily: 5:10,7:50 The Passion of the Christ Daly: 4:10,7::25 Starskyfe Hutch Daly: 5:00,7:45 Hidalgo i ** • im ^^ W Daily: 4:00,7:15 Jurors Continued from Page 1 five people have dropped out, and alternates have assumed their positions. "It's certainly not hoped for and planned for people to drop out," said Boone. "But ... life - we can't always plan what's going on." The size of the county in relation to the number of jurors needed each year for 19 spots also makes recruitment a challenge, Boone added. "We just don't have that many people (in the county)," he said. Diana Donnelly of Mendocino County Superior Court said the county hopes to have each district represented, including citizens on the coast or living in the less- populated cities of Laytonville and Covelo. "It is an opportunity to participate in active citizenship and to make a difference," Donnelly said. Grand Jurors also must not be serving on any other government board or commission during their term and cannot hold public office or actively contributing to a political campaign. Other qualifications can be found on the Internet at grandjury, where interested parties may also download the application. Forms can also be obtained at the Superior Court at 100 N. State Street, Room 103 in Ukiah or by calling the Grand Jury at 463-4320. The deadline is May 14.
