"The church paid for it," said Baguley, speaking of the stuff she bought for the lunches or got donated. She attends the local Church of Jesus Christ of .Latter-day Saints, which along with many churches in town, take turns making sack lunches to pass out to people on the weekends while Plowshares, the local soup kitchen, is closed. Baguley heard about the lunch-making project through her church and talked with Audrey Southwick, the woman who coordinates the project at the Mormon Church, asking if the high school's FFA program could take on the job of making and distributing the lunches. "I wanted to get FFA more into the community," said Baguley about why she wanted to do the project, "because people don't know who we are." With youthful exuberance, the project was completed by the around 50 high school students and FFA members during the class period. Then on Saturday afternoon, they passed out the lunches to people in the parking lot behind Foster's Freeze off South State Street. "FFA is a national organization from Maine to Hawaii and from Alaska to Puerto Rico," Baguley said. "It's like a continuation of 4-H for high school students. "It gives students opportunities for leadership, learning, growth, scholarship and careers," she said. FFA also gives students real-life experience raising animals and crops or working in the agricultural industry. "It's kind of like a business," said Baguley's best friend, 16-year-old Kiley Bray from Hopland. "Like our chicken business." Baguley and Bray are working to start an egg farm as one of their FFA projects. "It's about agriculture," added 18-year-old FFA member Simone Ashiku from Ukiah. "It's also about doing community service," she said, pointing out with Baguley that the FFA's motto is: Learning to do. Doing to learn. Earning to live. Living to serve. FFA helps build self-confidence in students, Baguley said, and gives them opportunities to go to places like Africa, New Zealand, Australia and Latin America on exchange programs. Vietor said FFA teaches teenagers about ownership and entrepreneurship through programs where they raise their own pigs, cattle, poultry, etc., and offers on-the-job training through its placement program. Students can learn about agricultural mechanics, sales and communications, she said, livestock or crop production, floriculture, forest management, landscape and nursery management and operations, environmental science and more. "Over the four years they take class here," Vietor said, students also complete FFA record books. The record books are used weekly to track a student's projects and progress in everything from 20- hour community service programs and classroom work to individual project receipts, expenses, legal business agreements, etc. "It's good because you have to figure out how to use money," said Ashiku, who has completed two record books and is now eligible to run for a state FFA office. "Every Wednesday, we do record books," Vietor said, adding that instructors have even helped stu- Cleaning and cutting up celery in Heidi Vietor's veterinarian left to right, Simone Ashiku, Bonnie Ford and Rosie Ryan. dents who have bought cars "figure out how much they use it for their project and depreciate it." Other community service projects the high school's FFA group has done, Baguley said, include a canned food drive for the Food Bank; at Christmas time students painted windows'at local convalescent hospitals and sang carols to residents; classes adopt low-income families during the holidays, donating food and gifts for family members; and FFA members volunteer to do work at the fairgrounds. "We have a really good group," Baguley said. Cancer Continued from Page A-1 Willits post office boxes and may or may not live in Willits. Based on population and other factors, like age and sex, the Cancer Registry said it expected to see around 267 cases of cancer. ." "The number of new, primary cancer cases actually observed during this period, although sjightly higher, was well within the range of what would be expected," the registry's report said. . The registry noted there were limits to the type of study it did. One is that it only takes into account where people lived at the time they were diagnosed with cancer. It's unknown whether those people recently moved to the Willits area, so they may have contracted the illness while living elsewhere. Nor does the information indicate if people diagnosed elsewhere with cancer used to live in Willits. • Another problem is the lag time between exposure to a potential cancer-causing source and identification of cancer. It may be decades between the time people are exposed to a cancer-causing agent and the time they Vi>v ne ill, the study said. Another shortfall of the study is it fails to take into account other illnesses that could be caused by exposure to toxic materials, including asthma and immune system diseases. The Cancer Registry recommended a total health assessment be done. The Cancer Registry isn't the first, or last, study on health hazards associated with Remco's toxic contamination, some of which was allegedly done purposely over a 30-year-period. Rogers said the Office of Environmental Health Hazards is looking into the risks associated with the contaminants found at the site. Prior to querying the Cancer Registry, Rogers and Mendocino County Public Health Officer Marvin Trotter planned to do their own preliminary survey of 75 homes near Remco. They may still do that, depending on what studies they can get the state to do. There also is potential for a study based on a $2 million medical monitoring fund through the Willits Environmental Remediation Trust set up two years ago to clean up the site. But the funding for the trust from litigation with Remco - has yet to be resolved. Two new hangars planned for the airport Ru nCRfiDALI CIUCGTSMJC UK j .T, • , , *,,.... . ..... ••By DEBORAH FINESTONE The Dally Journal The airport is growing again, but the two new hangars won't cause an increase in noise or air traffic. It's hard to say when the projects will be completed, Airport Manager Don Bua said last week. The city Planning Commission approved permits for Nick Bishop of West Coast Garbage Wings and Ukiah's Mark Ashiku on Wednesday. Next, they have to order the building kit, and then it takes about a week to construct. "Weather permitting, I imagine they may be done this spring," Bua said. Bishop is building the 6,000- square-foot facility to expand his company that repairs sheet metal, like aircraft wings, he said. The Continutdfrom Pagt 4-1 overturn the county-PCD agreement and force supervisors to revoke the company's contract. "It was a surprise for us to see the writ show up," Paul Caylor, the county's Solid Waste Division director, said Friday, because Risley never made* formal offer for PCD's contract. In reaching the settlement with PCD, the suit alleges supervisors exceeded their authority and violated county codes. It also claims the board failed to provide reasonable notice of the hearing, nor did it provide citizens reasonable opportunity to be heard. If a full and open hearing had been held, the suit charges, "con- siderable additional information" about PCD's violations would have come to light. And since the only evidence presented during the meeting claimed PCD "had a long history of improper actions," revocation of the company's franchise was mandatory, Risley's petition argues. The board's decision "was not supported by the findings," the suit claims. In addition to asking the court to set aside the county-PCD settlement agreement, Redwood Sanitary Service also is seeking attorney's fees and cost of the suit. No date to hear the petition has been set. Ashiku building will be used as a storage hangar. The airport's current hangars are occupied and have a waiting list, and people are requesting larger hangars. None of this growth will lead to air traffic outside the airport's current uses for air freight, fire protection, an air ambulance, charters, plane maintenance, or the occasional use from the sheriff's department or National Guard. The California Department of Forestry is also still planning its 4,000-square-foot, $7.3 million airport facility to replace the outdated, small complex it uses now. If CDF proceeds as planned, the building will be finished in 2002. CDF will also be upgrading to quieter aircraft.' UllDVH EYE OF THE BEHOLDER DAILY: 5:10,7:15,9:20 NMttB ^00. MAT.
