COAST PATROLS & JULY 4TH UPDATE:

After meeting with the Sheriff and Rachel Dann from Neal Coonerty’s office, it was decided that the sheriff’s deputies would come to Davenport later and stay later on the 4th of July. Their “Command Post” trailer will be moved to the Volunteer Fire House and there will be law enforcement looking for illegal fireworks etc. all weekend. In addition, the sheriff’s deputies that are assigned to patrol schools, will be reassigned patrol the beach areas after June 9th, when schools close for the summer until the end of August, when schools resume.

Last 7/4, neighbors brought potluck over to the Volunteer Fire House to thank the emergency responders & law enforcement. Does anyone want to organize?

OLD DAVENPORT JAIL GETS A FACELIFT:

“ E Clampus Vitas, a group of men interested in preserving California history, have volunteered their construction skills to repair some of the crumbling walls of the jail.  Residents of Davenport may see these burly red shirted men, also known as "Clampers" around town for the next few weeks continuing their work stabilizing the 100 year old jail.

Museum of Art and History volunteers, Bonny Doon Resident, Bob Piwarzyk and former Davenport Resident, Alverda Orlando, plan to open the jail the first Sunday of each month from June 6th to October 3, 2010.  Other volunteers will be working on repairing and refreshing the history panels.

This tiny Mission Revival style jail was built in 1914 with material donated by the Santa Cruz Portland Cement Company (now Cemex). The walls are eight inches thick and the window bars are half-inch steel.  The jail was never used extensively and one time was sold as a private residence. The property is now owned by the Museum of Art and History in Santa Cruz. The jail building is one of the very few Mission Revival style buildings in the North Coast area. It is significant in the history of Davenport and as one of the best examples of Mission Revival architecture in the Coastal region.For more information call Alverda Orlando 475-0808 or Paul Figurora at the Museum of Art and History 429-1964 ext 18.” ---- Alverda Orlando
