2 -MONDAY. SEPTEMBER 21,1987 -THE UKIAH DAILY JOURNAL' 'Floating 9 around Students from Applewood School were busy working on their float this morning for the upcoming parade celebrating the opening of Ukiah's new civic center this Saturday. WEATHER Extended forecast Wednesday through Friday — Coastal fog and low clouds with partial afternoon clearing. Fair elsewhere. Continued smoky in northwestern valleys. Coastal area highs mid-50s to mid-60s. Lows 40s to lower 50s. Coastal valley temperatures upper 60s to upper 80s. Lows 40s to lower 50s. Interior valley highs upper 80s to near 100. Lows in the upper 40s to lower 60s. Mountain resort highs upper 70s and 80s. Lows upper 20s to lower 40s. State summary A weak upper air disturbance along the coast of Baja California has spread some subtropical moisture into Southern California which will trigger afternoon and evening thunderstorms over the deserts and mountains, the National Weather Service said. Northeast winds of 15 to 25 miles were blowing this morning at 2,000 to 3,000 feet over the Central California coast. This is similar to a weak Santa Ana wind along the Southern California coast and should result in warmer daytime temperatures in the central coastal valleys. Areas of dense fog developed along the California coast this morning from near the Oregon border to at least the Monterey Bay area, and possibly a little further south. A strong area of high pressure over the state had squashed down the marine layer forcing the usual coastal fog and low clouds to form right on the ground. The shallow marine layer was unable to spread very far inland. The marine layer was deeper along the Southern California coast early Monday morning with typical widespread low overcast and light fog. Afternoon temperatures in the Great Central Valley just reached the century mark at Redding Sunday. National summary Showers and thunderstorms rumbled through the southern Plains today after blowing down an Oklahoma State Fair pavilion tent, while the West and Southeast enjoyed mostly fair skies. Rain fell throughout northern New England early today, and light showers were scattered through the Great Lakes region. A storm Sunday afternoon with 61-mph gusts collapsed a large tent full of people at the state fair in Oklahoma City. Six people sustained injuries, the most serious a broken leg. Winds 50 mph to 70 mph were reported northwest of Newcastle, Okla, and in Norman. Hail up to 'A -inch in diameter was reported at Selling. Altus had more than an inch of rain. Storms also buffeted parts of southeast Colorado, northeast New Mexico and northwest Texas. Winds gusted to 60 mph in Lubbock, Texas, and 50 mph in Haskell. For the third-consecutive day, Key West, Fla., tied its record high for the date. The 93-degree reading tied a 1951 record. Temperatures around the nation at 2 a.m. EDT ranged from 32 degrees at Custer, S.D., to 87 degrees at Phoenix, Ariz.

Law,' 'Promise' head the list PASADENA (AP) — NBC's hot series "L.A. Law" and a poignant CBS movie about mental illness and responsibility, "Promise," shared top honors in the longest and wordiest Emmy Awards show in history. Each won five awards Sunday night as the 39th annual prime-time Emmy Awards show on the new Fox Broadcasting service dragged on to 20 seconds short of four hours. It was the first time the show had left the big three networks. "L.A. Law," Steven Bochco's slick ensemble show about a Los Angeles law firm, won Emmys for best drama series. Despite eight acting nominations, only guest star AJJre Woodard won an Emmy as best guest performer in a drama series. It also won for Gregory Hoblit's directing, writing by Bochco and Terry Louise Fisher, and for art direction. Hoblit called the show's success a fluke. "It was a different area, an upscale, potentially stuffy law firm dealing with complex issues," he said. "We decided to make it as clear, concise and entertaining as possible, and we were surprised it did as well as it did." NBC was once again the big winner, with 16 Emmys, plus 16 others in the craft categories handed out a week earlier for a total of 32. CBS got 11, plus four craft awards. ABC won four Emmys, plus 15 craft awards. PBS got eight Emmys, one went to a syndicated show. Fox did not win any. "Promise," in which a carefree older brother is forced to care for his mentally ill brother, was named outstanding drama or comedy special. James Woods was named best lead actor in a miniseries or special for his role as the schizophrenic brother. Piper Laurie won as best supporting actress for "Promise" and other Emmys went to director Glenn Jordan and writers Richard Friedenberg, Kenneth Blackwell and Tennyson Flowers. Woods made special mention of James Garner, his co-star as well as co-producer of "Promise," calling him "a consummate actor and a great friend." NBC's "Golden Girls" won again as best comedy series, and one of its stars, Rue McClanahan, was named best lead actress. Director Terry Hughes, called "the fifth Golden Girl" by McClanahan, also picked up an Emmy. Michael J. Fox of NBC's "Family Ties" won for the second straight year as best lead actor in a comedy series, and Gary David Goldberg and Alan Uger won as best writers. The previous longest Emmy show was a 3-hour, 35-minute mar- James Woods, best actor In miniseries athon in 1978. With no time restraints placed on either the presenters or winners by the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences or the producer, it turned into a talkathon. Gena Rowlands won as best lead actress in a miniseries or special for ABC's "The Betty Ford Story," which told of the former first lady's battle against alcohol and drugs. Bruce Willis, the irrepressible private eye on ABC's "Moonlighting," stuck out his tongue at the camera as he went to the stage to accept his Emmy as best lead actor in a drama series. "I'd like to share this award with everyone on 'Moonlighting,' " he said, and included Al Pacino and the Three Stooges for good mea- sure. Willis noted that Cybill She- _• pherd, his co-star and the object his rapid-fire repartee, was because she's "carrying lVi pounds of baby." She is expecting, twins. Sharon Gless picked up her,.; second-straight Emmy as Christine' ., Cagney on CBS's "Cagney &";'; Lacey." "It's lovely the second time" .' around," she said, explaining".', backstage that her tears were",.' prompted by thoughts of her hospi-' ' talized father. The Emmy for the outstanding' 1 ' miniseries went to NBC's "A Year'••" in the Life," which is a series this;' season. Bruce Willis, best actor In a drama series. Fetzer gets grant to develop foreign market By MAUREEN CONNOR-RICE Journal Staff Writer Fetzer Vineyards has received a $30,000 grant from the state of California to increase the foreign market of wine sales. This is the second year Fetzer has received such a grant. Japan, "United Kingdom and Switzerland will be the primary targets, according to Gus Furtado, export sales manager. The target countries will remain the same, he said. Last year's campaign saw an increase in sales in Japan of 8,000 percent. "The Japanese like the blush wines," Furtado explained. "They hadn't been exposed to the blush wines before. Those wines are more attractive and appealing. "The Japanese also like the Char- donnays," he continued. He said the wines of choice in the United Kingdom and Switzerland were the blushes and Zinfandels. "There is a big opportunity in the foreign market," according to Furtado. "We are targeting the younger people who are looking for an alternative to drinking spirits. There is also a changing of lifestyles — housewives over there arc doing more entertaining and serving wine." The winery promotes its wines to the foreign market through different approaches, depending on what the market dictates, the sales manager explained. They invest in advertising, trade,', testings, or whatever they find] appropriate for the particular market. "We want the best results., and overall representation so we get'' the best usage out of the money," he , added. Fetzer Vineyards has been doing' business in the foreign market for, several years. Furtado believes thatt this exposure with that market is' why they received the grants oven other wineries. "They wanted to go./ with the winners." '.'
