State Water Rights Board will hold a hearing on the petition of Mendocino and Sonoma counties to review a previous decision on water rights of the Russian River.

The counties are now appealing this decision.

The results of the survey run recently by the Cloverdale Senior Advisory Commission are in, and show there is overwhelming support for a Senior Center in Cloverdale. The bulk of the responses came from people in the 65 to 80 age bracket. In all, there were 102 responses, and 79 of these voted to have a center.

The under grounding of all utilities on south Cloverdale Boulevard as far as Porterfield Creek came a step closer to reality this week as the city council had a first reading of the ordinance to create the necessary underground Utility District.
