*-Ukiah Daily Journal, Monday, July 1, 1974 CHANGING OF THE GUARD — Ray Rockefeller, left, district engineer for the Brooktrails Improvement District, was installed as president of the Mendocino County Chamber of Commerce Saturday night by Carrol Orhbaun, outgoing president, who offers his congratulations and best wishes for the coming year. More than 60 directors, members and their wives, attended' the installation barbecue at Hopland's Porno Inn and heard Ron Hall, right, county planning .director, explain the proposed county general plan. — Journal photos by K. Hunter. Overtime pay (Cont'd from Page!) Supervisor Augie Avila didn't think putting a patrol car in the area would solve the problem. "You have to act like an ostrich if you're going to catch one," he opted. "You're dealing with some people who are very .clever, and others who are broke and desperate and will steal anything. I don't see how you're going to catch anybody riding around in a patrol car with a big red light on top, looking like a peacock. What you-have to do is get some undercover officers there, even if they have to lay in the streets and act like a drunk." "I've heard you say the patrol car is a deterrent," Avila.

''I'd just wait until they go by." "Give me a motion for the money and let me select the men," the sheriff remarked. "The sheriff runs the sheriff's department and I expect him to do just that," Banker added. "What's peculiar to me is we've criticized the sheriff for overtime, and this time he comes to ask beforehand, and we ask him why he didn't go ahead and spend it anyway." Ed, Rosenstiel, owner of the Mendocino Hotel, recommended that a deputy walk a beat on the street and suggested that he not carry a gun. Banker made the motion to allow Bartolomie to spend the overtime as economically as possible and Williams added the second. The board acted unanimously. When it was all over, County Administrator Al Beltrami told Mendocino, residents that police protection could be provided by a vote of the people in the Mendocino community services district. Ukiah man tries to take own life A 26-year-old Ukiah man, reportedly despondent over a pending divorce from his wife, shot himself early Sunday in an apparently unsuccessful suicide attempt". The victim, Victor Leon Hensley, was taken to Hillside Hospital for treatment of a .22 bullet wound in the left shoulder: The bullet lodged in the shoulder blade. A telephone operator called the police dept. at-.l:32 a.m. to report a man with a gun on the balcony of the Uptown Apartments on W. Smith Street. Officers Richard Boyman and Harry Tucker responded, were unable to detect anyone on a southside fire escape, and entered the building. As the pair were climing the stairs, they heard a shot followed by a crash. They raced to the top, and found Hensley laying on his back on a westside balcony/ The victim is reportedly the manager of the apartments. He left a note on the desk in his apartment. Hensley's wife, Rita,, had filed a petition for dissolution of their marriage Friday. .

Weekend fire losses 1 Va acres Fire losses were kept to 1% acres in' Mendocino County over the hottest weekend of the year to date. State Division' of Forestry officials at Howard Forest report that fire crews responded to fires on Saturday. Thg first alarm, at 11:41 a.m., was eight miles south of Fort Bragg at Jug Handle Creek. One-quarter acre of brush was burned in that fire. The second fire, at 5:45 p.m., occurred 10 miles north of Leggett on McCoy Creek. CDF spokesmen say a power line was broken by a falling tree limb, sparking a Vfc-acre timber fire. Sunday at 6:23, p.m., fire crews'extinguished a one acre blaze behind Kingdom Hall in Boonville. First reports indicated that the Jehovah's Witnesses Church itself was on fire, but the blaze was contained solely to the area' behind the chuvch. ah home damaged by fire A Ukiah home sustained major damage early Sunday when fire broke out in the living room. ( Ukiah fire department units responded to a call at 2:34 a.m. to the David Brush residence at 1106 Marwen Drive, corner of Observatory, and found the living room area engulfed in flames. The entire home suffered smoke and heat damage as flames spread to the attic and roof over the living room." Heat from the fire scorched walls and doors throughout the home. The owner had . reportedly been out for the evening, and had returned at about 1 a.m. Cause of the fire is under investigation. Four units from the Ukiah fire department and two Division of Forestry pumpers responded to a fire call at the Masonite hardboard plant at 12:40 p.m. Saturday. A mill dust fire on the roof of the main building caused moderate damage. / :/ Wildcat* Welcome back In futun years Portland thanks It 's nice to know that your efforts are appreciated! This past week Rowland Nielsen, Ukiahi band director, ' received two letters from two different Portland/ Rose Festival Association sources. For band members, recently graduated, present and future; for their parents, and for the many persons and businesses throughout the community who help support the funding of the band, and its year-around program of musical and marching competitions, and its efforts to well represent Ukiah and its community, we have excerpted pertinentparts of the two letters, addressed to Nielson. , ( First, from Clayton W. Hannon, executive manager of the Portland Rose Festival Association, comes this letter: "We are in the process.of putting the 1974 Portland Rose Festival to bed. A mighty fine Festival, I should add. "And, thanks to you, your band members and the adults who accompanied you to Portland for the 66th annual Rose Festival, there are many of us who think '74 was the vintage year. "There is no way to tell you of the great response we have received from the performances of your band and the other five who came, many miles to participate. Parade viewers and officials alike appreciated the job your young people did for us in Portland. Please know that you' are welcome back in future years if your band's performance is anywhere equal to this year's group." After noting that plans already are being formulated •• for the 1975 Rose Festival, and asking for Nielson's critique of the Ukiah visit to Portland, the accommodations (excellent at Marylhurst College), the scheduling and carrying out of pre-parade and post-parade band activities, etc., the executive manager of the Rose Festival concludes with this: "If you and your students feel your visit to Portland was worthwhile, I would appreciate Todays Market Report it if you would take the time to alert us to other top-notch bands in your section of the country. "After the performances turned in by the 1974 visiting bands, we only want the better '.bands, those equal to your outstanding group of young people. Thanks for sharing them with those of us in Por- •tland..." Second Letter Another letter, somewhat shorter, came from W.E. Radford, who handled the band phase of the Portland Rose Festival so successfully. He wrote: "On behalf of the Rose Festival Association and myself, thank you and your fine band for taking part in the spirit and the activities of the 1974 Portland Rose Festival. "One of my regrets was that I was unable to view your pre- parade program on Saturday, before the Grand Floral Parade, as I understand it was a very effective show. Your band did.a fine job in the parade and we are most appreciative of their well-rehearsed talents. "We particularly appreciate the band's willingness to play a concert on Sunday following the parade, which must have been something of an, anticlimax for them, although a very un• portant contribution to the color of our week-long pageant. "I heard several comments referring to. your band competition at Ukiah (Ukiah Jaycee Festival and Band Review) and look forward to witnessing it at some time in the future. "To you and your band, and to those that made it possible for your trip to Portland, we extend you very best wishes for much success in the years ahead..." It's nice to know that vou are appreciated, and wdcom back anytime, after visiting and performing by invitation, initially. So it has been, at Disneyland, two years ago; at Victoria last year; at Portland this year. Hopefully BO may it be in the future, including Wednesday's Lions International Convention Parade in San. Francisco, where Ukiahi's Marching Wildcats will lead, and represent , the Michigan Lions delegation in the night parade. By their fine personal and group discipline, and musical performance, Ukiahi's band members represent their school and city well! BATEMAN EICHLER, HILL RICHARDS INC, 11 A.M.
