The new official estimate of California's population as of Jan. 1, 1993, is 31,552,000. That's a one- year increase of 1.8 percent, and it's an increase of 6 percent since the 1990 census reported 29,760,021 residents. Mendocino County's population grew 1 percent in the last year from 82,800 to 83,600 with much of that growth taking place in unincorporated areas. Individual cities within the county showed only minor, if any, growth. Fort Bragg's population was virtually unchanged in the past year as was Point Arena's at 410. Ukiah grew from 14,850 to 14,950 while Willits grew from 5,075 to 5,100 people. Unlike the census, which is a comprehensive door-to-door count once every decade, the annual population revision is an estimate based on records such as utility hookups, school enrollments and drivers' license records. The desert community of Calipatria in Imperial County had the highest percentage growth during 1992, more than doubling from 2,920 residents to 6,825; due to the opening of-anew state prison there last year.' Imperial was the state's' fastest growing county in 1992, increasing by 10.2 percent from 118,900to 131,000, the report said. Among California's 10 largest cities, Fresno had the highest growth rate, increasing by 2.8 percent to 391,600 residents. Fresno also moved past Sacramento from seventh to sixth place in population. Lake County receives grant for The Geysers The Department of Energy has just announced a grant of over $400,000 to Lake County to analyze the environmental impacts of a proposed pipeline project to convert wastewater to energy at The Geysers Geothermal Field in Lake County. "I'm encouraged to see that this administration recognizes how critical alternative energy forms are in decreasing our dependence on fossil fuels," said Rep. Hamburg of Ukiah. "This project, which I've supported for months, will provide a source of cheap, clean energy and will save ISO permanent jobs and create up to ISO construction jobs in our district." The S.E. Geysers Effluent Pipeline and Injection Project consists of a pipeline which will carry 3,500 gallons of treated wastewater per minute from Lake County treatment plants to Geysers steam suppliers. It's expected to generate a gain of upt to SO megawatts in power plant capacity. If approved, the project is expected to inject up to $18 million into the local economy during construction, and approximately $6 million annually. Construction costs are an estimated $29 million. A public and private cost shared financing plan has been proposed which uses Lake County wastewater funds, federal and state financial assistance adn Geysers operators' funding. The project has received praise from environmentalists for representing an environmentally superior method of disposing of secondarily treated wastewater and avoiding discharge of the waste into Cache Creek. The Department of Energy will grant $437,535 toward the project to be coupled with $15,000 from the Lake County Planning Department. County representatives plead for scarce state dollars By JOHN HOWARD The Associated Press SACRAMENTO — The annual budget parade is under way at the Capitol as interest groups and local governments fight for scarce state dollars. On Wednesday, representatives of California's strapped counties collared lawmakers and pleaded for money while parents and teachers rallied on the Capitol steps to protect school funds. "It's miserable, a continual parade of people coming in here and asking for money," said one senator. The counties' statewide coalition lobbied legislators and met with Gov. Pete Wilson on his $51.2 billion bare-bones budget, protesting the Republican governor's plan to cut $2.6 billion in state aid to counties, cities and local governments. The budget document suggests that local governments can raise taxes or fees to make up the difference, but the locals question whether they have sufficient legal authority to do so. As county advocates fanned out through the Capitol, some 1,500 teachers, parents and children's advocates rallied on the west steps in a demonstration sponsored by the California State PTA. Local officials said Wilson's budget cuts would devastate local services, with the biggest reductions in Los Angeles County, where the 7,400-member sheriffs department would lose more than 1,500 officers. Even without the new budget cuts, the department has lost more than 540 deputies because of current-year cuts, said Under- sheriff Jerry Harper. "With these new budget cuts, you're talking about closing down five jails and putting all those inmates out on the street," Harper said. Los Angeles County — like virtually all of California's 57 other counties — would be forced to cut. services across the board. Even Los Angeles' lifeguard service would lose 107 positions. In Sacramento, city-county authorities are considering cutting branch library hours to two days per week. In nearby Yolo County, authorities say Wilson's budget would result in a 15 percent cut in basic county services, most of it in law enforcement. San Joaquin County District Attorney John Phillips said his office can no longer prosecute misdemeanor crimes such as shoplifting, public drunkenness, restraining-order violations and some concealed weapons violations. $800 million in tax breaks OK'd despite deficit By STEVE LAWRENCE The Associated Press SACRAMENTO — Despite warnings about a looming $8.6 billion state budget deficit, a Senate panel has approved more than $800 million a year in new tax breaks for businesses. The Revenue and Taxation Committee approved three tax- break proposals Wednesday, but it also rejected other tax legislation with an estimated first-year cost of nearly $300 million. And the committee approved a bill that would raise $ 10 million a year by taxing insurance purchased directly from an insurer without the help of a broker. Meanwhile, Sen. Tom Hayden, apparently sensing that he didn't have enough support, put off a vote on a bill that would raise about $100 million a year, in part by reducing tax deductions for business-related meals and entertainment. The measure would also eliminate deductions for club dues and sports-related expenses, impose a SI tax on tickets for professional sporting events, levy a 25-cent tax on each sale of a pay-for-view broadcast of sports, and authorize a tax credit for businesses that hire new employees. Hayden, D-Santa Monica, said the bill would raise money for school sports and other programs facing cuts. He warned that California is sliding "toward the Roman Empire. "We're subsidizing leisure and cutting subsidies to education," he said. But his bill ran into opposition from major league teams, cable television operators, restaurants and country clubs. Several committee members warned about the state's severe budget problems and questioned the effectiveness of trying to use tax breaks to stimulate economic growth. But the panel approved three bills with an estimated first-year price tag of $875 million. The most costly measure, a bill by Sen. Alfred Alquist, D-San Jose, would authorize a five-year tax credit equal to the sales tax spent to buy manufacturing or research and development equipment in the United States for use in California. Martin Sidney Palomo-Sosa Fort Bragg police seek rape suspect Fort Bragg police are seeking a suspect in the April 23 rape of an elderly woman. Martin Sidney Palomo-Sosa, 28, of Fort Bragg, has been identified as a suspect in the case. Investigators said they obtained an arrest warrant for Palomo-Sosa on April 29 charging him with the rape of a 66-year-old Fort Bragg woman. Warrants were served on Palomo-Sosa's Fort Bragg and on a residence in San Rafael. Police now believe Palomo-Sosa may have fled the coast and be enroute to Mexico. People with information on Palomo-Sosa's location are asked to contact Fort Bragg Police Investigator Troy King, 961-2820. Rancheria school granted accrediation The Rancheria High School of the Anderson Valley School District in Boonville was recently granted accreditation from the Accrediting Commission For Schools, according to Principal Carl Anaclerio. Anaclerio said Rancheria's educational program was recognized for its diverse and extensive course offerings for the students. The program for students provides continuation, cooperative study, independent study, young mothers, adult parents, work experience, limited English and Spanish- speaking students and GED students. A liasion has also been established with Mendocino College and the the Mendocino Private Industry Council. The accreditation is effective through June 30, 1996.
