Editor Yearly Subscription Rates Sonoma Lake and Mendicino Counties 9.00 Elsewhere in the United States 9.50 Editorial All families need a 'pet policy' Midnight cat shoots, apartment houses that ban pets altogether or charge extra for having a pet in residence are all offshoots of one giant problem: an explosion of unwanted pets. Information on this crisis is so lacking, says the Animal Protection Institute of America, that official agencies aren't quite sure whether 3,500 dogs and cats are being born in the U.S. every hour - or 10,000. They do know that more are being born than the public can take care of, is willing to adopt, or has animal control personnel to watch out for. Although the road to low-cost neutering programs, helping the low-income family to bear the costs of keeping multiplication down, is a rocky one, API believes that adoption of such programs as standard throughout America will start the country on-the way toward a more responsible policy. Until such clinics or programs arrive everywhere, it is urging that every home adopt a "Family Pet Policy." Such a policy in- cludes the following steps: 1. Decide when a puppy or kitten is first acquired whether there are to be babies or not - and what will happen to the babies when they come. 2. If there is no proper way to care for or to place them, these future families should not be brought into the world-have your pet neutered by a vet at the earliest opportunity. 3. Join any move to develop a low-cost neutering program for your community so other families will readily adoPt a responsible "Family Pet Policy". We urge every home in our community to adopt a "Family Pet Policy." Letters to the editor Conflict of interest Editor: The prospect of a sea of new tract homes may warm our realtor-mayor's heart but it leaves me deddedly c(dd. However, the main issue in the proposed annexation and development is an advanced and clear-cut case of conflict of interest. Pn Dering is Cloverdale's planning consultant, for which he receives a salary. How can he also represent the Furber family, which owns one of the major parcels being considered for an- nexation? As a Reveille editorial said: Dering has been hired to help the city through the difficult task of annexing large par- cels to the city. In his staff capacity, he will be advising on how these parcels should be zoned, what the ultimate land use should be, and how .many variances should be given /+ to developers ...Granted, other people will have to approve his decisions.' But the facts remain. Dering has been hired to help the city with the annexations. He is on contract with the developers. In a real sense he 411 be in a position to draw the developer's plans, and then put on his city hat and judge + them. It is rather like having the City Attorney represent someone who is suing the City." This kind of charade is possible only in a city that does not have a conflict-of- interest code. Apparently the Cloverdale City Council will adopt such a code only if forced to. In the meantime they persist in making a joke of government and fair play. Chapter Seven, section 87100 of the Fair Political PracticAct of 1 4 statej "No public official+ 0n aby level of state or local government shall make, participate in making, or in any way attempt to use his official position to influence a governmental decision in which he knows or has reason to know he has a financial interest." Cloverdale, they're playing your song.

The ciies" clerks took in 83 licenses that day. That is not counting the amount of licenses obtained from the County desk clerk who at- tended. It was a very good turnout for such a rainy day. We have to date ap- proximately 180 dogs licensed for 1980. Anyone wishing to license their d,.gs can do so at" the City Hall Utility window. Bring your rabies certificate and neutering certificate if your dog has been neutered. We need proof of rabies shots before we can license and proof of neuter will get you a cheaper licensing - $7.50 unneutered and $3.75 for neutered. We have a lot more to license - I know - so keep coming in ya-all. Someone asked me Saturday if.the city llas an ordinance covering shots and licensing of cats - Ihe City DOES NOT have such an Ordinance. As of this writing the City does not have an Animal Control Officer - again! Our Animal Control Officer. Randy Boone, resigned his position this January. For those people needing animal sheller" services please be advised the City has con- tracked with the Healdsburg Animal Shelter for care of Cloverdale animals, they do not come to Cloverdale.

In areas where federal action if required, the Supervisor called " for cooperation between the federal and local levels. Ciling the critical nation-wide nced for affordable health care, Kahn charged that the current federal approach "cosls loo much for too little resulls". He said, "We vitally need a national health care program which has real incenlives for cutling costs, and focuses on keeping people healthy, not just treating them when lhey are ill. For example, current Medi-Care regulations often force the elderly into con- valescenl homes when they would he far better off with less costly care in their own Queen's Roller Skating, Talent Shows Bands, all this and more will be showcased at the 78th Cloverdale Citrus Fair on February 15-18, 1980.
