10—Uklah Dailly Journal, Uklah, Calif. Wednesday, January 18, 1978 Ukiah .aiif. Editor, Ukiah DaUy Journal: The persons curriently' circulating petitions to force a special election at Mendocino College are, performing an important service in ways they might not realize. After several years of lukewarm community response to the college, the issues surrounding this institution may finally come to the fore: Do the citizens of this district really want a college? , Wiat should be the function of that college in terms of the total area educatibnal system? What should be , the location of that college? Regardless of how any • of us might feel about Mr. McFadden, his continued existence on the scene is testimony to the fact that these questions still go unanswered. While the rhetoric and accusations surrounding Mr. McFadden's recent appointment have been heated, there are a few important issues which should be understood by the community. One, while Mr. McFadden is vehemently opposed to the Yokayo Ranch site (due to what he sees as an extremely limited and ever-threatened quantity of prime ag land in the county), he is strongly in favor of the existence of the college district with a campus in Ukiah. Two, while there is , always a great temptation to build monuments to education, this college will succeed or fail ultimately on the basis of its ability to offer the skills which people need. 80 percent of the current student population consists of parttime students. 50 percent of the college district population resides outside the Ukiah area. As Mr. McFadden points out, these are significant factors in ascertaining the need for a major core Campus in the Ukiah valley. Three, Mr. McFadden has rais^ an imporant issue regarding duplication of services. County ^dult education, ROC P, and the community college all have their fingers in the vocational education pie. As taxpayers, we should endorse air serious attempts to save tax dollars by rationalizing services. There could hardly be % more appropriate time for a special election. Clearly, much more is at stake than Mr. McFadden's seat on the trustee board. The long-term direction of this college district may well be determined in the next few months. Dan Hamburg Ukiah. Calif. Editor, Ukiah Daily Journal; What a delightful surprise to find THIS WEEK again a featured column in the Ukiah Daily Journal. Thank you for bringing Bil Alverna^' haippy observations to a far too serious world. Doris N.Harding Redwood Valley, Cal. Editor, Ukiah Daily Journal; I would first like to thank th» board members of the Redwood Valley Jitter District for their wiljingness to address themselves to the many questions raisfed by the residents of Redwood Valley. I would also likp'io thank the editor of the Ukiah Daily Journal for providing a public forum for the district's responses, 1. Willard Hansen has stated that only 700-800 households have signed up for a project originally designed to serve 2,660. If this is a fact, why are many residents being denied water service when they live within the district and have been paying taxes to the district? 2. With the reduced number of people signed up for service will they be charged increased rates to compensate for the, fact that the project is not serving its designed population? 3. Will the water rates be lowered after the loans are repaid or will funds be used to finance other public projects? (Compare to the Golden Gate which has been paid for but now supports other transit.) 4. Who is going to bejar the financial burden for compensating the landowners for construction errors such as moving off rights-of-way? If it- is not the responsibility of the contractors then how is the district going to finance this? 5. While speaking of rights- of-way, it is a fact . that portions of the right-of-way include roadways .belonging to private parties. Who is going to be responsible for maintaining these families', roads as-well-as the maintainence . of rights- of-way across their properties? . 6. Many people in the valley live well back from the road and main, pipeline and are under the impression that when they paid their $25 they would be provided hook-up to their residence. Is this true? , 7. The residents in Los ^risas are currently- bping served by a private water system. Many have paid for hook-up tb the Redwood Valley Water System. Is the district going to install a duplicate system or is it going to purchase the existing system? Do the residents have the option of which system they use? Wheife are the funds coming from for the purchase FROM OUR REAPERS) of the existing system should that be necessary? 8. In the condemnation papers the rights-of-way were condemned for the use of any- and-all utilities. Why has this been done? Does the district Intend to lease its right-of-way to , other utilities or does it intend lo just give it to them at the landowner's expense? 9.' In some of the southern water districts the residents are requii-ed mandatorily to cap their wells when they hook up ta the sysfiem. In others the residents are charged for the ' water they take from their. wells because the , district states that it is the water their users put into the ground which maintains the water table. Will we be strappied . with such restrictions here in Redwood Valley? 10. Some of the people in , the condetnnation proceedings ' have had portions of property condemned two or more times, yet those properties affected in the original cbriK demnation have not been landowners? •returned after subsequent condemnation has taken {dace. Doug Sutton It seems that if you condemn enough property you eventually place the line where you please and the landowner will have no idea where it will be located. When will those properties not to be crossed be returned to the THE REAL THING: Just being at the top of the showbiz heap isn't enough for Pearl Bailey. She says she's wanted all her life to be a teacher, and now, she's, going to take a crack at it She's enrolled at Georgetown University in Washingtoh where she'll major in F'rench.
