16—Ukiah Daily Journal, Ukiah, Calif. Wednesday, January 25, 1978 Safe boating classes CO wants you to know how to save yourself Suppose you were out fishing in a 16-foot aluminum open deck deep-water boat and your 25 hp outboard motor spluttered and died somewhere opposite Caspar. You have no oars, no radio, no boats nearby. What would you do? Let's say you're the skipper of a $35,000 sailboat enjoying an afternoon cruise with four aboard in San Francisco Bay, and you suddenly detect the unmistakable odor of gasoline fumes in your bilges. You don't want to risk a fire, you don't want a stray spark to ignite the gas fumes, you've no radio to call for help, no boats nearby and no dinghy to abandon ship if worse came to the worse. What would you do 9 It's mid-winter and you Workshop at SSC on aging ROHNERT PARK "Social Policy and Aging" is the focus of the first spring semester workshop at Sonoma State College.

You launch at the Fifth Street ramp and pretty soon you are planing at 3,800 RPM when you notice the temperature gauge going into the red. Figuring that there is some debris caught in the exhaust or water intake, you steer left and right hoping to shake off the problem, but instead you aggravate the situation. The engine emits several loud pops and stops. You're too far from shore to signal for help, you've got no radio and there are no other boats in sight. What would you do 1 ' In each of the above circumstances (which truly happened), U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliarists patroling the specific areas were able to assist the boaters in their predicament. With the sharp increase of pleasure boats on coastal and inland waters, it is becoming more and more important for boating families to become more knowledgeable about boating safety, skillful boat handling and latest boating regulations. There's more to boating than filling a boat full of fuel, taking aboard a load of passengers and heading for the nearest pleasure spots! Knowledge of how to handle a boat in congested waters safely and what to carry aboard for emergencies and to meet state and federal requirements sure helps. While 1977 statistics will probably not be available until May, it is a fact that 1,264 persons perished in Boating accidents in 1976. This represents a drop to 13.8 fatalities per 100,000 recreational boats. In addition to these fatalities 8,954 boats were involved in reported accidents in 1976 with 1,838 persons injured and $14,012,400 worth of damage to property logged. One reason cited for the reduced fatalities among the 7.67 million U.S. boaters is the constant vigil of the U.S. Coast Guard and its civilian arm the U.S. C.G. Auxiliary. In addition the Auxiliary's primary goal being boating safety, it goes without saying that an effective Public Education program backed by Courtesy Motorboat Examinations and Patroling have proven helpful. The Public Education courses offered by the Auxiliary provide the right opportunity for improving boating skills and knowledge. The courses are for families and individuals of all ages. They are good for novices as well as "old salts" interested in getting the latest information on State boating laws and new Federal regulations. This wide selection of courses taught by experienced members of the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary include in- depth classes for serious skippers from the ever- popular "Boating Skills & Seamanship to mini subjects such as "Skippers Outboard Special". Introduction to Sailing, Young People's Boating Course and First Aid For Boaters. Those interested in acquiring boats this year and those planning to use the region's waters are urged to sign-up for the forthcoming "Boating Skills and Seamanship" course in February. Announcements will be made about time date and place next week. Those interested in these courses or joining the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary can get additional information from Flotilla 87 Commander Arthur Bailey by calling 462-9032. Dr. Robert Wallace Copley Newt Serylc* Television in Review Doctor Wallace: I'm 15, if that makes any difference, and my boyfriend and I are seriously thinking about making love. Everything is perfect. We respect each other, are friends and no\v want to be lovers. The problem is that we are both virgins and shy and we don't know anything about birth control. We are responsible so I hope you can tell us where to go. Please help! We are serious and love each other. — Jessica, Torrance, Calif. Dear Jessica: Please contact a Planned Parenthood group. They will explain the various methods of birth control. But I would be amiss if I didn't add that "making love," while it is physical, can leave emotional scars, especially if you are unmarried and 15. Doctor Wallace: Why are parents more strict on girls than boys? I'm talking about being caught after curfew by the police or skipping school. Girls always get into more trouble than boys. — Debbie, Everett, Wash. Dear Debbie: I hate to admit it, but you are probably right. In most cases, boys are dealt with more leniently than girls. I guess this, goes back to the myth that women are the "weaker" sex and therefore girls need more protection than boys. But we both know it is only a my th.

By JOAN HANAUER UPI Television Writer NEW YORK (UPI) - Who says television isn't varied when viewers can watch a spaced out comedy in the style of a documentary or a two- part documentary about the space race. The comedy, one of the funnier efforts to appear on the screen of late, is NBC's "Peeping Times," a satirical news magazine show that will be broadcast tonight, 9-10 p.m. p.m. One of the best segments of the show deals with illegal aliens, in which a professional alien smuggler is asked his favorite method. "By mail," he said. "Parcel post." And the audience watches while he packages an illegal alien for shipping. There's a section on Bigfoot, and the town that fakes evidence of the creature's existence. The 'doubting television interviewer is shown a home movie of Bigfoot that leaves the audience with the question, "Why does Bigfoot wear an ankle bracelet?" Other imaginative subjects explored by Miles Rathbourne (Alan Oppenheimer) and Dan Cochran (David Letter-man) include a self-service hospital, the dance class at a reformed prison, and the story of a New York longshoreman who wants to become a nun. Then there's the story of crime in America and a look at people serving time for having committed victimless crimes, like the woman who removed the tag from her couch — you know, the one that says "Do not remove under penalty of law!" — and the fellow who taped a baseball game without the express written consent of the commissioner. David Frost and Marvin Minoff are the executive producers of the show, created, produced and directed by Rudy DeLuca and Barry Levinson. Over on PBS, "Nova" marks the 20th anniversary of America's first venture Into space with a two one-hour programs to be broadcast tonight and Feb. 1, 8 p.m. (check local listings). The first show, "One Small Step," traces the space race from 1957 when the Soviets launched Sputnik through America's emerging dominance crowned by the landing on the moon, through to the Soviet-American handshake in space in July, 1975. The second stanza is titled "The Final Frontier," which might strike a chord with "Star Trek" fans, whose pressure led to naming the first space shuttle the Enterprise. But the real fascination of the second show lies with other developments that might be within our grasp. Broken Sizes Reg. $6.00 ITEMS LIMITED TO STOCK ON HAND!
