Corona Norco Independent (Newspaper) - January 3, 1973, Corona, California * • . ^ \ - - ■ , TDemocrats call for war halt now 85th Year, No. 145 Corona, California Wednesday, Jáííuary 3, 1973 Phone 737 1234 22 fä-ages-^lO CentsHead Start reopening stal 'ByDONN The Head Start progr^, wliS^fc^ad been tentatively scheduled to r«%en tomorrow, will not do so. Schools Supt. Charles Terrell informed the board last night that, though the district had received a telegram last week authorizing the district to reopen the • program, there is still no guarantee that funds will be received. The county counsel advised Terrell yesterday that the telegram does not guarantee payment of costs already incurred during the year's operation. The counsel advised Terrell to wait to reopen the program until the district is sure that,the money will be received. TERRELL said he had been at-tpmpting to reach the telegram's author, Samuel Miller, assistant regional director of the Department of Health, Education and Welfare Office of Child Development in Sacramento all last week to discuss where funds are; but he was told that Miller was not available. Terrell also voiced hope that the coun^J! schools office will take over the administration of the program, but that it will be February before the transfer is complete. The telegram bad told delegate agencies to reopen the programs this week and run through the end of January when the Economic Opportunity Board wiir close. There was nothing in writing about funds being available, however. BOARD PRES. WILLARD LO^E asked if it would be appropriate for motion to be made to reopen th program once the funds are assured. But Terrell said, "The thing is so slippery that if I were a board member I would want to wait until I got something more concrete." Terrell also noted that if word is received soon the board could call, a special meeting to reoperr the program before the next board i^eeting. > ' There have been unofficial reports that the county , EOB has received federal funds for continuing of the Head Start program, but Terrell noted there has been no pfficial word of it and that no one can prove the money is there. "I cannot in good conscience tell the board to continue the program without actual knowledge of the funds being ready," he said. The district has spent $15,000 without receiving one penny, he added. HIGH SCHOOL CONSTUUCTH)N PKOi KEDING—The third and final addition to \orco Hifih School is under construclioii. The project, which began in .August, was expected to be completed by thé end of .April ; but with :$9 per cent of the contract time elapsed, only 25 per cent of the work has been done, the board learned last night. Pouring of concrete beams for the roof is currently underway. The project includes construction of a buildingjtousing the cafeteria, music rooms, two classr»)onis, and faculty dining room. Another building includes the boys' physical education locker rooms and mat room. Interest quickens in proposed low density for area in Norco WORLD glance held A few 'more persons appeared interested in Norco's proposed new zoning" map last night than have been in the zoning text which has already been the subject of a hearing and several study sessions. The council held a hearing on the map last night and representatives of the Quintana lands, which are in the southeast corner of the city, spoke. THEY WERE Roy Hackelton of Inland Engineering in Redlands and Joe Sullivan of Norco. . Both questioned the low density proposed for the area, which is presently undeveloped. The area is designated as a PD~ planned development-zone on the map. It contains about 693 acres and the recommended density is 1.4 units per acre which Hackelton and Sullivan both said is too few. HACKELTON presented a slope analysis for the area which is quite hilly and said he feels there could be as many as 900 units on the property instead of the proposed 278. DACCA, Bangladesh AP - Students He said it would be useless to develop protesting the U.S. bomljing of North it at all at the recommended density.

Corona council to act today on community center futureFlu cases mounting in Corond Though local schools are not reporting significant increases in absences due to flu. Corona Medical Group reported today an "unusually large number of patients coming in" with the flu. "We've been very busy with it," receptionst Jo Appelt said. Symptoms of the illness seem to be vomitingr^ stomach cramps and respiratory'^ problems, according to nurse Elsie Rice, and the illness seems to go through the entire family. .y DR. JAMES MCKINNON. of the group, stated that it is not of epidemic proportions so far. He said the flu seems to be the usual type, and that he is not aware of its being the London flu. Flu has been reported in epidemic proportions in San Francisco and in other states. Local schools are reporting only normal absentee rates, and there are fewer teachers out this week than last year at the same time. Jeanne Vierra of the district personnel office noted that only 35 teachers in the district were absent today. COUNTY Director of Public health Dr. Harold Erickson has indicated that there is no evidence of the London flu here. Checks throughout the county have ^hown that only a normal percentage of persons have been absent . from schools and admitted to hospitals. Dr. McKinnon also noted that if the London flu would reach the. area it would mean vaccines would be ineffective since the type is a new strain of flu.Counts to resign WASHINGTON AP - J.

Sixth, Corona police reported today. Investigators found 10 to 12 indentations around the door of the safe and its combination. They indicated the burglars employed a pry and punch operation in their abortive attempt. As of this forenoon, officers had been unable to learn how the burglars gained entry tb the buHding. A search of the exterior and roof disclosed no point of entry, and police think the burglars may have obtained a door key. Unexpected developments. The center formerly was financed with federal funds distribute^ by the Riverside County Economic Opportunity Board. Federal funding of EOB has been discontinued, leaving futurp operation of the center in the hands of the city or a combination of government agencies. Wheatpn told the council, "Recent discussions have identified the need for continuing the work done by Mrs. (Juanita) Rameriz and Mrs. (Vera) Balderas." He is recommending that center operations be continued for 90 days and that Mrs. Rameriz and Mrs. Balderas be retained to provide services to Corona area residents. The council recently approved a recommendation to ask the City of Norco and County of Riverside to share the costs of operation beyond the 90-day perio^ Wheaion has informed both agencies of the council's request, but no answer had been received as of this forenoon. Wheaton said the 90-day extension would be subject to a city attorney ruling that the expenditure is proper. "At such time as the other agencies respond, the <;ouncii will be advised in order that a permanent decision can be made, " Wheaton said. one-acre and some for none, indicating the latter would be the steepar peaks.

Elision of Coifgress is underway WASHINGTON (AP) - The Democratic-controlled 93rd Congress opened today with Senate Democrats unanimously endorsing their leader's call for an immediate end to U.S. involvement in Indochina while Republicans gave split-decision support to President Nixon's peace efforts. Both Senate and House went through the opening-day rituals swearing in new members and electing their leaders. Vice President Spiro T. Agnew presided over the Senate, while Pat Jennings, its clerk, led the House until Carl Albert was formally re-elected for another two years as speaker. Senate Democrats, putting aside until at leasf Thursday a series of policy proposals on the vyar and other issues, endorsed the lengthy statement delivered to them by Sen. Mike Mansfield of Montana, elected for an unprecedented seventh two-year term as majority leader. It declares, "there is no greater national need than the termination forthwith of our involvement in the war in Vietnam," and urges that senators take whatever steps are necessary "to bring about complete disinvolvement." Republicans, meanwhile, voted 16 to 10 in favor of a resolution by Sen. Charles Percy of Illinois that expresses full support for Nixon's efforts "to end the tragic conflict in Indochina now through a negotiated settlement." Sen. Norris Cotton of New Hampshire was unanimously elected the new chairman of the GOP conference. In GOP contests, two Southern conservatives, Sen. John G. Tower of Texas and William E. Brock of Tennessee, were elected to chair the party's Policy Committee and Campaign Committ^. Republican Leader Hugh Scott of Pennsylyafiia and Assistant Leader Robert P. Griffin of Michigan were reelected.Project to add tsOOresidents \f Corona Land Co. has filed a tentative tract map with the city planning staff thai shows 1,365 dwelling Units on 300-acres of land in southwest Corona. The map will go to the planning commission on Jan. 23, the staff said today. It includes phase three, four, five and six of Corona Land Company's massive planned development. s ^The project will add up to 3,500 residents to the city's present population of 28,600,, pushing the total to about 32,000. t PHASE ONE arid two provideci 1,078 dwelling units, including a high density area at Border and Camelot. Construction is still under way on these phases. Existing city standards would permit Corona Land Co., a wholly owned subsidiary of Foothill Lemon Co., to construct 1,590 dwelling units in the new tract. But, said James Cashman, president of the firm, "Because of its. ^st experience in PD zoning and the background in sales patterns and wlopments within the City of Corona, ) is asking for a reduction... by 225 dwelling units." if Riverside begins enforcing all its laws we'll behave when over there RIVERSIDE (AP) —If you're thinking of roller skating on a tennis court, abandoning your pet duck on a park lake or wearing a hat in a theater— don't do it in Riverside. It could land you a maximum .six-month jail .sentence or a $500 fine. Also, avoid wandering near ^ ladies' restrooms on strolls throtugh the park, if you're a' male ; smoking on a public dance fhMir, or opening a tent show within a mile of downtown. Under the city's municipal code, all that, and much more, is illegal. Only city parks oommissioners arc authorized to turn loose ducks or chickens in packs. And if you r«' a male and over six years old, stopping within '¿i) feet of à women's resiuHtm in a park can , ^ you a criminal record. Things.liJti-taking someone for a ride on bicycle handlebars. ; running a business that offers to restore lost love, find relatives, or locate i)il wells; and if you're a man, dressing up like a member of the opposite sex—eveii for M'alloween— are frowned upon in Riverside. You can't walk your dog in a city park, drive a truck with muddy wheels or sweep dirt into a gutter. Hanging around dance floors can get you iii Iroyble, too. ^Marathon dancing, or "any contest or exhibition of endur-ance in dancing or any walkathon or any coirt««t—<n a similar natU4:e,''-is a no-no. And.lady, if you're thinking of making a career out of leading two-Jell-_f<Htted gentlemen around a dance fl<M»r, forget it. Dance hall girls aren't welcomed in Riverside.. Even hugging your sweethedrt a little loo much on a dance^floor can draw a suspicious look from an officer of tBe law. Anif if you're a "lewd or improper person" even attending a dance can get you in trouble. Similarly, swearing in public, making out pawn shop report in a foreign language or riding a bicycle faster than is "prudent or reasonable" can put you on the wrong side of 4he law. Of course, no one is ever arrested fdr breaking any of the above. Police" Chief Fred Ferguson can't remeniber his department ever enforcing any of them. "They're never enforced," Ferguson says. "They've obviously be^n on the books for ■ many, many years. "What happens in any city is you have special needs come up and then the laws are necessary no longei;^ It's the same way in Los Angeles i>r any o.lher city. ^'We're just going to have to weed them out."
