Two of the three new officers lifted their right hands and took the oath of office from Mayor Herb Gicse during the City Council meeting. The third officer sat quietly through the ceremony, staring intently at a bug on the ceiling of the council chambers. The officer could only listen as his fellow officers uttered their vows to keep the peace. That officer is Astor, a 2'/a year old German shepherd who is Willits' first K-9 program entry after training at Lackland Air Force Base. Astor is one week away from completing his local training. He will be used for such things as sniffing out contraband and on search and rescue missions. Willits' other new officers are hardly upstaged by their canine counterpart. Officer Richard Vcnturi, 31, is a 12-year veteran whose most recent job was deputy with the Mendocino County Sheriffs Office. Officer Blaine Johnson, also a 12-year veteran, has served with several police departments and has received two decorations for bravery and valor. -MOVING DAY- (Continued from page 1) For city residents, doing business at the Civic Center will be easy. All administrative departments are located in the north wing of the building. Staff in the finance, building and planning and utility departments will be readily available behind a horseshoe-shaped counter. Employees will share one large area, with departments separated by fabric-covered room dividers. The Civic Center includes a separate office for the mayor, and another office to be shared by the other four members of the City Council. Regulars at the City Council meetings, especially reporters, will be delighted at an improvement in the council chambers. For as long as anyone can remember, when the council has gone into closed session, the public has been booted outside, a cruel fate late at night in December. At the new Civic Center, the public can stay in the chambers while the council retreats to a separate room immediately behind where they sit. Irreplacable city records dating back to the incorporation of Ukiah in 1859 will be stored in a vault equipped with climate control and filled with halogen gas to retard the decay of paper. The entire building is equipped with an overhead sprinkler system in case of fire. When the public tours the Civic Center on Saturday they will see a vacant building, except that much of the furniture is already in place. Management employees have been "requested" to come into work Sunday to assist the movers. City offices will be closed next Monday and Tuesday to allow time to organize for regular business, which is scheduled to begin Wednesday at the new location. MARKET Randy Foster Mayor Herb Glese, left, administered the bath of office to Willits' three new officers. From Glese's left were Officer Astor and his handler, Sgt. John Brown, and officers Richard Venturl and Blaine Johnson. Police and Fire Log Alligator loose in Redwood Valley An alligator is missing from its Redwood Valley home. Yes, alligator. Alligator owner Frank Brady, of 2101 Road G in Redwood Valley, reported his pet missing at 2:30 p.m. Wednesday. The alligator was housed in a cage and got out or was let out. The alligator was described as three feet long with "a lot of teeth," according to the report. Both Animal Control and Fish and Game officials were notified. "The lady told us it's no problem now, but next year it may be," remarked Sheriff's Department Sgt. Neil Franzcn. "Believe me, we're looking for it," Franzen said. "But how do you find an alligator?" Franzen speculated the reptile may seek refuge in a nearby watering hole or pond, but he hoped it would not be in a neighbor's pool. The alligator's owner could not be reached for comment this morning. Boy draws gun on babysitter An 11 -year old Covelo boy was booked into Juvenile Hall after he allegedly pointed a shotgun at his babysitter Wednesday morning. The 17-year-old babysitter made a citizen's arrest and the child was later booked for drawing a firearm. Homes spared in Brooktrails fire A four-acre fire in Brooktrails came within 100 feel of homes Wednesday evening, but firefighters managed to extinguish the blaze before any damage occurred. The grass fire was reported at 5:16 at the corner of Madrone and Daphne streets in the Brooktrails subdivision west of Willits. According to Jim Wood of the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection, the fire was caused by children playing with fireworks. The fire jumped one road and began running up a hill before it was contained at 6 p.m. Two battalion chiefs from CDF directed six engines, two air tankers, two hand crews and a helicopter which responded to the blaze. The Brook- trails Fire Department also responded with two engines. The firefighters were on the scene until 9 p.m. One of the fire engines called away from the Brooktrails fire found itself another job on the trip home. The crew returning to Covelo on state Hwy. 162 came across another fire at 6:30 p.m. in a remote area two miles east of Dos Rios. The half-acre fire was practically inaccessible on the south side of tlic river, and crews had to cross the riv- er to reach it. The fire grew to two acres before it was contained by two hand crews, four engines and a helicopter. Wood said that fire probably was started by a hunter smoking a cigarette. Fire calls The Ukiah Fire Department responded to the following calls Wednesday. •10:59 a.m., 275 Hospital Dr., helicopter landing. •5:36 p.m., aid to Brooktrails brush fire. •No time given, 290 S. School St., smoke investigation. A small gain NEW YORK (AP) — The stock market eked out a small gain today, struggling to extend its sharp rise of the past two sessions. The Dow Jones average of 30 industrials, which had climbed 92.85 points Tuesday and Wednesday, rose another 2.45 to 2,588.12 by noontime today on Wall Street. Gainers held a narrow edge on losers in the overall tally of New York Stock Exchange-listed issues, with 691 up, 670 down and 454 unchanged. Activity was curtailed by the observance of Rosh Hashana, the Jewish New Year. One apparent drag on the mzuiot was a rise in open-market interest rates. Prices of long-term government bonds, which move in the opposite direction from interest rates, fell as much as $5 for each $1,000 in face value in the early going. Gainers among the blue chips included International Business Machines, up 3'/a at 157 3 /4; American Telephone & Telegraph, up % at 33 7 /i; Digital Equipment, up P/i at 190 3 /«, and DuPont, up '/• at 118. Manufacturers Hanover led the active list, unchanged at 39Vi in trading that included two 1.5 million-share blocks crossed by Nomura Securities. The NYSE's composite index of all its lisicd common rose .22 to 179.75. At the American Stock Exchange, the market value index was up .71 at 354.02. Volume on the Big Board came to 80.56 million shares at noontime, against 120.90 million at the same point Wednesday. .
