The NAPA REGISTER 21 Commission Decides Tomorrow Friday, May 9, 1980 Prop. 1 funds To Napa? SANTA CRUZ The state Parks and Recreation Commission is meeting here today and tomorrow to decide whether the proposed Napa River State Park will be among those projects recommended for funding under Prop. 1. The city planning staff Tuesday revealed it had approached the state with a proposal to develop the riverside park with state funds that would become available under the parks bond act on the June 3 election ballot. Michael Foley, city planning director, said he had presented a proposal to the state last week and officials were especially interested because it was an urban park and small in scale compared to other proposals. Preliminary rough estimates made by planning staff pegged the cost of acquiring some 25 acres of riverbank property at $700,000 and development costs at around $3 million. The act would set aside some $140 million of the total $495 million proposal to fund additions to the state park system. The planning department indicated it would like to set up a series of hiking, running and biking trails from the Maxwell Bridge to the Lincoln Avenue bridge. The area south of downtown next to the river's confluence with Napa Creek would be developed into a picnic area. Both staff and commission will be meeting to discuss over 100 proposals submitted by parks and recreation planners from around the state. A list of priorities will be drawn up for the legislature to adopt if Prop. 1 is passed by the voters in June. A spokeswoman in Sacramento said the commission should have its list of priorities drawn up mid-way in the day on Saturday. Foley said he first heard the state was holding hearings on possible state-funded and maintained parks projects less than two weeks ago from Gordon Hall, the city's redeveloper. City manager William Bopf gave the planning department the go-ahead to develop a proposal for enhancing the city's riverfront.

Mrs. Fleishman, a member of the National Animal Protection Association, says the birds appear to be sparrows, but her husband, George, thinks Vineyard they are robins. In either event, all seven are alive and hungry, requiring food every three hours. The Fleishmans are feeding the little chirpers strained baby food, sugared water and, with George's help, worms.

Annual Mussel Quarantine Begins The State Department of Health Services has issued a quarantine of mussels along the California coastline from May through October. During the six-month period, mussels may contain a toxic material that is poisonous to humans. The quarantine prohibits the taking, sale or offering for sale of mussels in or from the coastal waters, San Francisco Bay and all other bays, inlets and harbors, including the Napa River, except for use as fish bait. However, all mussels used as bait must be broken open and sold in containers labeled, "Mussels May Contain Poison Unfit For Human Food." During the quarantine period, fishermen are being alerted that clams should be cleaned and washed thoroughly before cooking. All dark parts of clams should be discarded, and clams should be taken only from areas free from sewage contamination.
