The land-use plan came before the Mendocino Planning Commission Thursday, but commissioners decided to take their time ruling on it. Pinoleville rancheria is a 93-acre patchwork of houses, vineyards, businesses, wrecking yards, and an asphalt batch plant. Some of the land there is owned privately and some is under federal trust for the Indians, That mix has created a tangle of jurisdictions. While the county zoned the entire area for industrial development in 1982, local government has authority only over the privately owned parcels. When Shamrock Materials Inc. got county permission last year to build its asphalt plant on company- owned land within the rancheria, residents there sued. Allowing industrial development so near their homes and farmland, they said, has a severe effect on land outside the county's jurisdiction and is an attack on their quality of life. While a deal between the tribal council and Shamrock allowed the asphalt plant to go ahead, the tribe's. lawsuit with the county See OWNERSHIP, Bock Page Arms accord cuts non-nuke weapons throughout Europe Roly Sharpe-Drash/The Daily Journal PARIS (AP) — President Bush and Soviet President Mikhail Gor- bachev led European leaders today in signing a historic treaty that slashes non-nuclear weapons in Europe and pushes the Cold War deeper into history. Bush said the pact heralds a "new world order." "We are putting an end to the previous age," French President Francois Mitterrand agreed as he put his signature to the treaty documents. The glittering signing ceremony was the prelude to a 34-nation summit called to discuss European security in the post Cold War era, but shadowed by the Persian Gulf crisis. The long-sought agreement to destroy tens of thousands of tanks, artillery and armored combat vehicles in Europe is die most sweeping arms accord in history. It will alter the military balance in Europe by erasing Moscow's ability to mass huge numbers of tanks and other heavy armor in central Europe. "It is the farthest-reaching arms agreement in history and it signals the new world order that is emerging," Bush said shortly before the ceremony, held in an ornate ballroom at the Elysee Palace. "This reduces to practically nil the tensions that have existed." The leaders also signed a companion non-aggression declaration between the 16 nations of NATO and the 6 nations of .the Warsaw Pact, which is disintegrating as a .Soviet-led mililtary alliance. It pledged that the nations "are no longer adversaries, will build See ACCORD, Back Page Conventional arms treaty at a glance Here are key provisions of the Conventional Forces in Europe treaty. TANKS: The treaty requires the Soviet Union to reduce the number of tanks from about 41,000 before the treaty negotiations began in 1989 to 13,150. Moscow already has reduced its tank holdings in the area to about 21,000,- mainly by moving its best models east as replacements for older ones. The allowable number tanks for all of Eastern Europe will be 20,000. The ' Jnited States and its NATO allies alsowu e allowed 20,000 tanks. That will require a cut of about 4,000 for NATO, although more than 1,000 of the top-of-the- line American M1-A1 tanks already are being moved from Europe to Saudi Arabia. ARMORED VEHICLES: The 32,300 armored combat vehicles now deployed by the Soviets will be reduced to 20,000. NATO will not have to make any cuts in this category, which includes such war-fighting machinery as the U.S. Bradley Fighting Vehicle used to move infantry, protect maneuvering tanks and help consolidate gains in an offensive. ARTILLERY: The Soviets will be required to reduce the number of artillery pieces, which provide the essential firepower for a combat operation from about 52,000 to 13,175. The Soviets already have reduced the number to 18,300. NATO will stay at its current level of 18,500. Crew members consider an upcoming scene on location on the north side of Noyo Harbor near a fishhouse. 'Dying Young' enlivens coast Shooting has begun in earnest on the Mendocino Coast for Twentieth Century Fox's "Dying Young," starring Julia Roberts and Campbell Scott. Actual production began Nov. 12 in Mendocino with a number of residents hired on as extras during filming of street scenes. Roberts, who last appeared in "Pretty Woman," has been also developing a good rapport with coastal people. Although considered somewhat reserved, Roberts has been visiting Mendocino shops as well as "Dick's Place," a local bar, where she was taught how to play darts. Directed by Joel Schumacher, and produced by Sally Field and Kevin McCormick, "Dying Young" will also be shot in San Francisco and Napa before cast and crew return to Los Angeles to do soundstage work at Twentieth Century Fox. Also satrring Vincent D'Onofrio and Colleen Dewhurst, "Dying Young" was written by Richard Friedenberg, from the novel by Marti Leimbach. An Impromptu studio stage created out of Carine's Fish Grotto on North Harbor Drive. In "Dying Young," Roberts stars as Hilary O'Neil, a young working class woman who takes a job as the companion to Victor Geddes, a wealthy, acerbic man with leukaemia, portrayed by Scott. Despite their different backgrounds, the two. fall in love. When Geddes begins to feel himself slipping away, however, he pushes Hilary toward "Gofdon" a young man played by D'Onofrip, who has befriended the couple in the past. Roberts will soon be seen in the Twentieth Century Fox thriller "Sleeping With The Enemy," co-starring Patrick Bergen, and scheduled for release in February 1991. Previously, Roberts starred opposite Richard Gere in "Pretty Woman," the year's second highest grossing film to date, as well as "Steel Magnolias," for which she received a Golden Globe for Best Support Actress, as well as an Oscar nomination. Scott, praised for his performances in the feature film "Longtime Companion," and the miniseries "The Kennedy's of Massachusetts," will soon be seen in "The Sheltering Sky," directed by Bernardo Bertolucci, and Kenneth Branagh's "Dead Again." D'Onofrio previously starred with Roberts in the 1988 comedy See FILMING, Back Page Plenty of gobblers for Thanksgiving feasts WASHINGTON (AP) — Consumers have plenty of turkeys for this Thanksgiving and more are on the way next year, according to the Agriculture Department. An outlook report said stockpiles of frozen turkeys Sept. 30 were at near-record levels, up 8 percent from a year ago. And production in the October-December quarter is forecast to be up 5 percent. Further, the report said, 1991 turkey output is expected to rise 6 percent from (his year, compared with a 1990 increase of 9 percent. Retail prices are averaging slightly higher than a year ago, said Larry Witucki of the department's Economic Research Service. "It's hard to predict exactly, because we don't know what the retailers' special strategy will be in any particular year," be said. In (he last quarter ofJ989, retail prices of whole turkeys nationally averaged about 96 cents per pound, Witucki said. "About all I can say is that it's another year of ample supplies in stores, at reasonable prices — but those may be a little higher," he said. Supermarkets in the Washington, D.C., area are offering specials on whole turkeys this week at prices ranging from 66 cents to 89 cents per pound. Prices are similiar in the Ukiah area. The 1990 turkey crop will total more than 281 million birds and produce an estimated 4.7 billion pounds of turkey meat, Witucki said. Not all of it will be sold as whole birds. Processors have developed many ways of selling turkeys, including turkey luncheon meats, See TURKEY, Beet Page National turkey tips hotline celebrates 10th anniversary CHICAGO (AP) — When Thanksgiving Day chefs don't want to wing it or stick their necks out, they can talk turkey with experts stuffed with the right cooking information. They can dial the Butterball Turkey Talk-Line, which takes questions from harried holiday cooks. Callers range from young brides to Army cooks to a blind man from Norfolk, Va., who was talked through the cooking steps by a hotline staffer. Forty-five Chicago-area home economists and nutritionists provide the turkey tips from an office in suburban Downers Grove. The service was started by Swift- Eckrich, which has the trademark on Butterball turkeys. "Every year we have a three-day training session for them," said Jean Schnelle, Talk-Line director. "Staff members have a notebook with 66 categories of types of questions in it." Since opening in 1981, the hotline has handled about 1 million calls, including 260,000 last year. "The most common one is 'How do you recommend we roast the turkey to get it picture perfect?'" she said Friday. Answer: Use the See TIPS, Back Page Food Bank fund-raiser The Ukiah Daily Journal, in conjunction with the Don- rey Public Foundation, is raising funds for the Food Bank throughout November and December.
