Continued from Page A-l According to Robyn Bullard from the Humane Society for Inland Mendocino County, last year 957 dogs and 1,214 cats were euthanized in county pounds. "Some were abandoned adults; others were turned in because they were no longer wanted, and sadly, some consisted of entire broods of puppies and kittens surrendered by owners with no plan to find homes..." Bullard says. So during the month of February, and in support of Spay Day USA scheduled for Feb. 29, the Humane Society is offering low- income pet owners vouchers that will pay one-third of the cost to spay or neuter a dog or cat - on a first-come, first-served basis. "We ask, however, if you are able to cover costs yourself," she says, that people not apply for the voucher, and if possible, make donations to the Humane Society so "it will allow us to give out even more vouchers." Bullard says pet owners who use the excuse "I can't afford to spay my pet" are akin to people who say, "I bought a car but can't afford insurance." Furthermore, she says pets benefit from spay or neutering and it is "wives tales" that animals need to have a litter before having the procedures or will Recycling become fat and lazy. "Spaying and neutering not only curbs pet overpopulation," says Dr. Katy Sommers of the Mendocino Animal Hospital in Ukiah in Humane Society information, "but there are many health benefits as well. "In cats, it decreases the risk of life-threatening and contagious diseases, such as leukemia and FIV," Sommers says. "In all species it eliminates reproductive organ infection and protects against mammary cancer." Plus she said it helps control behavioral problems, like urine spraying in cats and fighting among dogs. The Humane Society adds that contrary to the popular belief that animals shouldn't be spayed or neutered until after they are 6 months old, many veterinarians "report the surgery is easier and quicker to perform" earlier and has "less complications and oftentimes is less expensive." In addition, the Mendocino Spay/Neuter Assistance Program, SNAP, has a program to alter feral cats - cats that don't let humans handle them and must be trapped to be spayed or neutered - not domesticated cats. Local veterinarians participating in the program are reimbursed by grant monies from the California Veterinary Medical Association, after performing a Continued from Page A-l But he didn't mean it. "George always said he wouldn't charge you for the ones you chew, just the ones you have in your basket," said cherry picker and McNab ranch resident Nancy Roca-Schneider. "So we'd just make ourselves sick" eating cherries, she said. Although most of the property isn't workable farmland, Dolan said it was priced at close to the going value of grapes. He said the hilly, higher ground at the ranch should be great for growing good-quality red-wine grapes.

' The ground has great permeability, good water retention and is well drained, he said. Dolan said the purchase is in response to the demand for Fetzer's organic wines, not to the impending end of a contract with the Fetzer family to sell its grapes exclusively to Brown- Forman, which bought the winery and Fetzer name in 1992. As with its other wine grapes, the new vineyard would be cultivated organically, Dolan said. "We wouldn't even consider growing anything other than organic fruit," he said. minimum number of privately paid surgeries. Along with the surgery, the altered feral cats have their right ears clipped one- fourth-to-one-half inch to show the procedure has been done. "After the minimum baseline requirements are met," says a recent SNAP newsletter, it "hopes that all feral alterations can be performed through this program." The Humane Society vouchers are redeemable at any veterinarian office in Ukiah, Redwood Valley, Willits and Laytonville. To apply for a voucher, owners should call the Humane Society beginning Feb. 1 at 485-0123. For the feral cat alteration program, SNAP says local participating offices include: the Mendocino Animal Hospital, the Ukiah Veterinary Hospital, Yokayo Veterinary Hospital, Dr. Mack-Fisher, Dr. Grasse, and Willits Animal Hospital.

Continued from Page A-l It has to come from commercial recycling." And while EWM's proposal is "a great gesture, it just doesn't offer enough." Supervisor Richard Shoemaker agrees. "I think (Lycier is) right on target," he said. "The county's second smallest hauler," he pointed out, "offers one of the most comprehensive recycling programs in the county at next to (no cost)." . Not only should businesses be able to recycle without paying a fee, Shoemaker said, the $5 a month EWM charges residential customers to recycle also should be removed. "Mendocino County is performing horribly," he complained. The county's "recycling rate is dropping like a rock." Supervisors "spend more time discussing (garbage issues) than on all the other needs of the county combined," Supervisor David Colfax complained. "I think at this point, we can say 'no charges' for recycling." But Supervisor Patti Campbell contends "in reality, nothing is free." Even if recycling fees don't appear on customers' bills, they are probably hidden in the monthly charges ratepayers' receive. While the county should real- ize some savings when haulers switch from using the Ukiah landfill to channeling trash streams through proposed area transfer stations, the amount of that "windfall" remains undetermined, Campbell said. And if ratepayers aren't going to be asked to pay recycling fees, the county will have to subsidize the program, she said. Before making that kind of financial commitment, Campbell thinks the county needs "some real numbers about what we can (afford) to do." Board Chairman Michael Delbar suggests making any kind of decision regarding the toter program can wait until February, when the board "has a chance to wrap up a big part of the county's solid waste issues." Supervisors have approved a proposed EWM fee schedule for other services the company offers both commercial and residential customers, such as picking up extra residential garbage cans or commercial dumpsters, once-a-month on-call garbage collection and COD-bin (collect on delivery) collection. But before finally approving or rejecting the toter program, Campbell feels the county needs to have "further conversations with Empire Waste to get those costs down." Continued from Page A-l cations and cost to expand this program is fine once we discontinue our losses from the social center." The Adult Day Health Care program already has the staff it needs, so the six staff members of the Alzheimer's center will be offered positions as home assistance caregivers or laid off. Social Day/Alzheimer's program director Terry Baxter will also be losing her job. "Terry is well respected at the center and in the community but we have nothing to offer her," Phillips said, explaining that the Adult Day Health Care program is licensed by a different organization that requires all staff to have certain credentials. The Adult Day Health Care program offers: specialized health care services, a professional staff, physical, occupational, speech and psychological therapies, transportation to and from home and meals. ; The program accepts Medi» Cal and has a sliding scale for private pay clients, to ensure affordability for clients. Still, Phillips said she knows this change will not be easy on anyone involved. ' "Some people are accustomed to the social day setting," she said. "It's going to be a change, and that's harder for Alzheimer's patients and their stressed-out family and day care workers than it is for the rest of us." UKIAH 6 Theatre Ukiah High scores above median in state API The Dully Journal Shortly after the state released the Academic Performance Index (API) scores for all schools on Tuesday, calculations of the median scores for elementary, roadie and high schools were changed by UK state. The median score (meaning half of the schools scored higher, half scored lower) for elementary schools was adjusted to 629, for middle schools 633, and high schools 620, on a scale from 200 to 1000 with 800 being the statewide goal. Therefore, Ukiah High (in addition to Eagle Peak as reported in the Daily Journal) scored above the state median. All other Ukiah Unified School District scores fell below the state median.
