Page 4, Cloverdale Reveille, January 8, 1997 Syr Council on Aging catering service Editor:. The Council on Aging has to find new sources of revenue in order to continue the wide range of services it offers to seniors in Sonoma County. We believe that we have found one way to increase the budget and we would like your assistance in making this idea a reality. We are starting a catering service, providing a light luncheon, aRernoon tea, designed to meet the needs of families and friends following a funeral or memorial services. The food can either be served at a residence or in the centrally located conference room at the Council on Aging. The Council on Aging Nutrition Department is well qualified to meet this new challenge. The agency provides about 23,000 meals per month from our centrally located commercial kitchen. We need help in starting this program. You can help by donating some of the following items: teapots, china teacups and saucers, salad size plates, and tablecloths. In the last three years we have received budget cuts totalling a loss of over $250,000 to the agency. We are sorely challenged in maintaining our services to seniors. We cannot serve the commu- nity without help from the community. Please assist us. LI Basic training over for Seaman Blair Navy Seaman Recruit Laura I Blair, granddaughter of Olon E. and Faye G.

Our service fund benefits which sponsor such programs as Family Service, the Boys and Girls Club and the CARE Founda- tion, and you, the consumer benefit by having the products available here in Cloverdale at the same price you would pay in a See's retail shop.

Thank you for your continued support, Sydney Sciaini ii __-- ---- __ __c__ \\;c\-- -- -- ___j New Cloverdale website expands available services Cloverdale has had a presence on the Internet since November of 1995, but the focus has been primarily on information aimed at visitors from out of the area. The new site features a com- pletely redesigned index page allowing the user to select from a variety of categories to quickly find the information he or she is seeking. In addition to a redesigned vis- itor information area, some of the more readily apparent fea- tures of the new site are up-to- date city council agendas and minutes, Chamber of Commerce news, meeting schedules, and a business directory, complete in- formation about local churches and non-profit organizations, Citrus Fair event schedules, a community-wide calendar of events maintained by the Cham- ber, and audio-enhanced Fiddle Contest page, and a 'dmplete section covering the work pro- grams of the Economic Develop- ment Commission. According to Robert Jehn, Vice Mayor and Chairman of the Eco- nomic Development Commis- sion, the web site is the culmination of three months of work in their spare time by many volunteers in the community. "The primary programming work was done by Joan Trimble, Chamber Assistant Director; Joe Heckel, City Planning Director; Michele Winterbottom, City Clerk; and myself", said Jehn. "Although the site design was approved by the EDC promotion committee, many many mem- bers of the community assisted in providing up-to-date informa- tion which has been incorporat- ed into the site", he added. According to Jehn, the num- ber of visitors to the Cloverdale web site has steadily increased since July when the domain name, "cloverdale.net  was ob- tained. The number of "hits" in December was 1,072. Immediate plans include add- ing .more community informa- tion such as complete transit schedules and cdnstruction + projects m progress, while plans over the next several months will produce more audio on the site, as well as a community bul- letin board. v v v v v v w w v v w v w Wsdnesday, January 8 Family History Ctr., LDS Church .................... 9 a.m.-9 pm Soroptimist International, Sciaini Office ................... 12 pm Senior Center, Grange Hall ....................... 9.'30 a.m.-4 pm Bingo, Kings Valley Seniors ....................................... 1 pm American Legion & Auxiliary, Vets Bldg ..................... 8 pm Sup.

The City's position on this issue is clearly untenable. The presented its financial analysis for funding the District before Local Agency Formation Commission. On the basis of that tation, which included the expectation that to be generated from City and County property taxes as well assessments, LAFCO approved its formation. To later renege on this analysis and announce its intent to longer makes its tax contribution is a very serious mistake on Council's part. Let Council members graciously acknowledge their error, good on their original intent to contribute and let both City join in an effort to support the coming special tax election. it will be a formidable task to secure a two thirds vote in March that will ensure the District can continue to provide and medical emergency services.

They are not erected to make decisic of personal antagonisms or, as in the Council's case, an unwillingness to admit that a wrong decision has been made. The future of the Fire District is at stake. Hopefully the officials in this confrontation will rise above personalities and what is in the best interest of the people served by both bodies.BJH The Cloverdale Historical Society will be presenting its Fiddle Contest on Jan. 25 at the Citrus Fair.
