By RANDY FOSTER Journal Staff Wrltar The Board of Supervisors, still dazed by destructive fires in Fort Bragg that leveled a library and gutted a courthouse early this week, reluctantly approved a plan Tuesday that would spend almost $4 million in state and county funds to expand the county jail. Mark Morris, a consultant hired to chart the county's jail needs, reminded the board, "This county is in better shape than most." He said Humboldt County will have to shell out $20 to $25 million over the next few years (o bring its jail system up to required levels, he said. The board was incredulous. Foremost on their minds was how to house the coast library, sheriffs substation and judicial district, not how to house criminals. That, combined with the dedication of a maximum security facility only two years ago, made the board unsympathetic to how criminals are housed. she said angrily. "It's another example of the board spending time and money on a segment of the population that is neither productive or appreciated," said Supervisor John Cimplino. But Morris said additions to the county's jail capacity are inevitable. "You, like every other county in California, have just kept up with the problem." He said the county's jail population will almost double between now and 1997, increasing from 179 to 343. Some of that population could be handled by "alternatives to incarceration" programs, he said. Most of the balance would be housed in a proposed medium security jail block. Morris and a county committee set up to look into the problem recommended a jail improvement program that would work in two phases centered on the proposed new cell block. Estimated cost of the first phase of improvements is $3.9 million, and would be completed Supervisor Marilyn Butcher said the only in the early 1990s. Funds for the facility include Extended forecast Friday through Sunday — Low clouds and fog along the coast with occasional drizzle. Mostly fair but cooler inland.

Thunder, lightning and a little rain fell over the Los Angeles basin as well as many other parts of the southern California Tuesday night and Wednesday morning. An upper atmosphere low pressure system over northern Baja California swirled subtropical moisture northward into southern California where hot daytime temperatures triggered the thunderstorms. High clouds blowing off from the thunderstorms spread north as far as the northwest coast of California Wednesday morning before dissipating. Coastal fog and low overcast extended from Ft. Conception to the Oregon border Wednesday morning and had spread deeply into many coastal valleys. Only a few patches of low clouds were reported along the southern California coast where the atmosphere has been disturbed by thunderstorms. National summary Showers and thunderstorms persisted today in parts of California, Arizona and Florida. Tuesday night, one thunderstorm brought gusts of 82 mph to Phoenix, according to the National Weather Service. And in California, thunderstorms knocked out electricity to about 200,000 businesses and homes in San Diego and southern Orange counties. By late Tuesday night, most of the service had been restored. Patches of dense fog developed today from southern New England across the upper Ohio Valley. Elsewhere, Hurricane Emily slammed into the southern coast of ihe Dominican Republic with 110 mph winds and heavy rains. Fifteen-foot waves were reported to have crashed onto shore at the town of Nizao near Ocoa Bay, and many streets were flooded with trees and telephone poles toppled. Emily was weakening over land. The winds had dropped to 75 mph. Around the United States today, the forecast called for scattered showers and thunderstorms in southern California, Arizona and southern Florida. High temperatures in the 60s were predicted in northern New England, the northern Appalachians, the upper Ohio Valley and the lower Great Lakes regions. Highs in the 70s extended from central New England across the Carolinas to the remainder of the Ohio Valley and into much of the Mississippi Valley. Readings in the 90s were forecast for southern Florida and in the Southwest. improvement necessary is a 40-foot wall that should be built around the Low Gap facility. "Sleeping on a concrete floor and doing without food now and then would do them good," $2.7 million in state Proposition 52 matching funds and $1 million from local coffers. There is a $1.25 million shortfall. A second phase would cost $2.2 million and would begin sometime after the first phase is completed. The proposal calls for the tearing down of one of the existing jail blocks, built in the mid-1970s and crumbling from abuse by inmates housed there. The cleared space would be used to construct a "new and improved" jail block with greater capacity and better supervision characteristics. This would house medium security prisoners. Another building identical to the one that would be razed, but which now houses offices, would be reconverted into jail cells. The displaced offices would be housed in the Sheriffs Office main building, which would be expanded at a cost of $600,000. Other details have to be ironed out, such as housing of mentally ill criminals and suicide attempters. The cell block that would be converted from offices to jailspace will probably become unsafe, as its sister building is now, once inmates are housed there. The proposal will now be forwarded to Sac-" ramento, beating a Sept. 30 deadline for Proposition 52 funds. Police Log Elsewhere, generally, the mercury was expected to be in the 80s.

Late-night fire burns one acre A fire shortly before 11 p.m. Tuesday burned about an acre of grass, trees and brush on Northwestern Pacific Railroad property at the eastern end of Clay Street.

At noon, the Dow Jones average of 30 industrials stood at 2,576.21, up 8.16 points, after having been down about a point in the first half hour. Volume on the Big Board came to 120.90 million shares, compared with 102.96 million shares at noon Tuesday.

Some analysts said it appeared the recent 8.4 percent decline in the Dow average had reached a bottoming-out period, with the possibility of some intermittent lapses breaking up a basically upward trend. Prices did rebound after the first hour, only to fluctuate at higher levels throughout the morning. ESPRIT, DIJON, OSHKOSH.
