San Andreas, CA — The Calaveras County Board of Supervisors will kick off October with a new County Administrative Officer.

Former CAO Brent Harrington has been put in charge once again while the county searches for a permanent hire to replace departed CAO Tom Mitchell.

On the board´s Tuesday agenda are two items proclaiming the month to raise awareness for certain causes.

First off October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. According to the California Department of Health Services in 2007, it is estimated that 19,710 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer.

And October is also Sudden Infant Death Syndrome Awareness Month. The California Department of Public Health says in 2004, SIDS was the second leading cause of death for infants from one month to one year of age.

Also Tuesday, the board will hear an update on Community Development Block Grant Program.

The board meets at 9 a.m. Tuesday at the county Government Center in San Andreas.
