In-Depth Valley Sign Situation Study Due The motel room price war in Solvang which came to the attention of the district attorney's office and probers in the County Planning Department is being followed by an in-depth investigation of -all sign activity in towns in Santa Ynez Valley. The County Planning Commission approved the request last week of Mrs. Thomas Nielsen, commissioner from Santa Ynez Valley, to have the planning staff probe the sign situation in all its aspects in the Valley communities, and report back on its findings of any violations. Two Solvang motels recently took down their price signs when the Planning Department staff sent notices of violation on the grounds land use permits hadn't been granted.

PARIS, JET UNDERGOES MODIFICATIONS The result of one of the Santa Ynez Valley's more esoteric industries, Aviation Research Corporation, pares along a taxi-way at the corporation's Santa Ynei Valley Airport hangar. The four-place, $250,000 Paris jet is one of the coming status symbols among the very affluent. Ken Hess Photo Paris (Continued from Page 1A) Aviation Research has modified five planes in five years, indicating that there is no mass demand. One belonged to the late Fletcher Jones and was recently sold by his estate. Another has been purchased by Slick Gardner of the Gardner Ranch. Hetrick noted that only slight-changes are made in the planes and that they are not "souped up" in anyway. THERE ARE nine licensed Paris Jets in the United States at the present, although there are 200 still flying, based all over the world. They were first marketed here by Beech Aircraft and received initial attention from aerophile Arthur Godfrey, who endorsed the jet as a personal aircraft in 1958. One of the great pluses is the ease of mechanical upkeep. Two latches are opened without tools to remove the nose cone and reveal the radio equipment, all at work bench height. A bug-a-boo on most planes, getting at the instruments behind the instrument panel, is solved in the Paris jet with the removal of two circular panels just fore of the windshield. Presto a maze of wires leading to the trouble spot. Aviation Research employs 20, including 12 mechanics, three secretaries, a draftsman, an engineer, and a bookkeeper. Two On-Job-Training students from Santa Ynez Valley High School, Mike Maloy and Mike Valencia are also employed, with two others expected momentarily, one in drafting, the other in welding. The two Mikes will graduate from high school qualified for an airframe and power plant license.

Stephen Craig Jones, 26, Sharane Ann Jones, 29, and Norma Lee Green, 25 all of Santa Rosa were booked in the Santa Barbara County Jail on the narcotics charges. Valley News Photo by Elaine Harrison itllttt M ttlttitiltMW Jets ON THE horizon for the Paris is a fan jet engine, which will be more efficient and quieter while using a third of the fuel of a regular jet engine. Fan jets have been in operation now for about three years . Hetrick hopes to expand the business soon with a radio shop, upholstery shop, paint plant, and air conditioning plant. Additionally, he is presently negotiating with the county, owners of the airport, to establish a shop for maintenance of local airplanes. At present aircraft based at the Santa Ynez Airport must fly to Santa Barbara for repairs and checks. The Paris jet is advertised, Hetrick said, solely in the Wall Street Journal. As Town and Country Magazine noted, "It's the one jet than can be flown single-pilot ... and if you don't feel like flying that night you can almost take it as excess baggage on a 747." Area Projects Included In Park Bond Proposal El Capitan State Beach and La Purisima State' Historical Park were two of 94 projects listed under the $250,000,000 State Park Bond Act presented by the California Department of Parks and Recreation.

Trustees Approve Pared Building Program A scaled-down building project for Santa Ynez Valley High School was finally approved by the board of trustees Tuesday night after hours of discussion, and a tax increase election has been called for June 4. Ballard Board Appro) ves Lot Spli lit Plan Trustees of the Ballard School District agreed in principle on the method of meeting a lot split cost involving a five-acre parcel of land east of the present school which will be purchased by the district as part of a plant refurbishing and site acquisition program. Funds for the work on the 90-year-old frame structure to bring it up to earthquake safety standards, enlarge the present size and acquire the additional five acres will come from the proceeds of a $120,000 bond issue which was approved by district voters last summer. In other action at the session, the board accepted the resignation of trustee Robert Hunter. The board will now seek input from the community on the naming of a successor to Hunter. Names of the prosepective trustee will be forwarded to the County Board of Education for consideration. COLLECTOR'S ITEMS If you had bought a porcelain American eagle by Boehm in 1957 for $150, you could sell it today, only 16 years later, for $18,000. Such phenomenal profit on this lovely sculpture is realized because the bird was brought out in an edition of only 64 pieces and then the mold was broken. So much is mass produced today that rare objects are prized, and a collector's fancy is snatched up quickly when a small number is offered at reasonable price.

The price tag will still be above $1,000,000 and inflation may push the price close to a bond election for $1,300,000. Previous bond measures have failed twice and included the three missing parts. The collection of sewage will also be included in the proposed 25-cent tax increase. The election will not be a bond election, but a tax increase election and will need a simple majority to pass. The buildings will be constructed by a non-profit corporation and leased to the school for a 25 year period, at which time title to the buildings will go to the school district. THE NEW WAY of financing has only been available to schools since March, 1973. It is used most often for municipal buildings such as the new County Jail in Santa Barbara, and the Music Center in Los Angeles.
