Tuesday, January 24, 1978 Ukiah Daily Journal, Ukiah, Calif.—5 By Bil; Alvernaz. manager, (greater Ukiah Chamber ofCommerce At first I thought it was a dream, but then I realizi^' it was-all too real. ^' It happened so fast that it all took me by surprise, there was no way I was ready for it, because such a strange thing had never happened to me before. The absence of lights is what intrigued me — then there was a multi-color sensation of lights. I could almost taste it, as strange as that sounds. I had been working for hours on my latest manuscript when I looked up from my typewriter as the "sensation" caught my attention. At first I truly could not accept what I saw through the window. Before I had tinie to assess it I ,was outside next to it—the huge shape, resting on the front lawn in a vivid cold- metal realness. There was light and, at the same time, there wasn't. An over-all luminescence commanded my attention - I had absolutely no control over what was happenihig. Instantly I was inside of what I was sure was not some type of space craft. "It just couldn't be," I kept hearing myself say over and over again. "Ah, butit is," my mind told me through a transmission process from the two beings in front of me. Nothing beyond thoughts was necessary for communication. I could make out shapes, but no details. Still the light was ever-present, seeming to come from everywhere all at once, but jiot meant for refraction through my eyes. Through an experience I can't begin to even explain, let alone try and understand, we exchanged knoyvledge,, There was no need to be afraid and once I understood that a form of mind intra-relations and spatial variances took place. It was as if the entire history of man passed through me to them and then their entire existence of being was passed along to me. The entire experience didn't last more than the blink of an eye, but it seemed like a foreverness that I'm sure must exist. I was given a flexible, pliable wafer and I just knew it was sustenance. "My tastebuds seemed to explode in a tasteful symphonic harmony, but my mouth W9s parched. Then my wife, Diana, began to shake me. "Wake up,*'-she s^id. When I opened my eyes to the morning sunlight I realized I had eaten two of the granny- squai;;es from our bedspread. made public at a special ,lunchein this coming Friday at the Lido is now just about sold oiit.

High school rodeos held here monthly SACRAMENTO, (UPI) — A bill prohibiting landlords from refusing to rent to- people because they have children was sent to the Senate floor Monday by the Local Government Committee The measure (SB359) by Sen. David Roberti, D-Los Angdes, received a 4-2 vote from the committee, which- rejected it last May in favor of leaving it up to communities to deal with the question of discrimination against children. Roberti told the committee "the problem of arbitrary discrimination against families is a statewide problem. We cannot wait for local governments to act." He cited a newspaper ad that showed 165 of 204 advertised apartments in Santa Monica were prohibited to renters with children. The Renter's Guide,-largest rental advertisement publication in Los Angeles, shows 56 percent of the units do not accept tenants with phildren, he said, "Some landlord!^ will even permit dogs or cats when they won't accept children," said Ftoberti. "The fact is that not all children are noisy and not all adults'are quiet." Four states — Arizona, Massachusetts, New York and New Jersey — forbid" lan^ dlords to discriminate against minors, as do the California cities of Berkeley arid San Francisco. Roberti's measure, which must receive approval from the full Senate by Monday to remain alive, would not apply to senior citizens' housing, student dormitories. The bill would forbid landlords to refuse to accept renters with children, prohibit them from advertising that {M -eference is given to persons without children, forbid landlords to break leases because a tenant gives birth to a child or to change the amount of rent or security deposit because a tenant has youngsters. The bill is supported by 80 groups, including the state departme^its of Consumer Affairs and Housing and Community Development. It is opposed by the California Association of Realtors, the California Apartment Association and the California Housing Council. ; High School Rodeo Association District 2 is now holding rodeo clinics once a month at Rainbow R^ch Arena in Ukiah.
