Kauri gum was brought to England in 1769, following Capt. Cook's discovery of New Zealand. Paint and varnish had been developed over a period of 900 years, and it was not too long ago that material was put on furniture with a trowel while hot, before the use of brushes and the varnish maker peddled his products on the street. Formerly all material was applied with a sponge or rubber and it took many weeks to finish; only the very wealthy could afford such furniture. Nowadays paint and varnish may be applied by air-brush or spray, leaving no brush marks. Clear lacquers were first made by using resin gums for solids while now synthetics have improved the quality as to tenacity and strength and today the use of acrylics is wide-spread, and the ultimate goal is to develop one that will not scratch or mark or be affected by chemicals or the glass of beer you left lying in the new coffee table...better go check that out before the war- department employs the use of the doomsday weapon on your hide ! ! Well perhaps this bit of wisdom will make you better appreciate the lustrous furniture that can be pur- chased thday due to the advanced technology and man's development of his gray-matter. Viva-la-Homo Sapiens !. Meanwhile back at the rancho-Cloverdale in January 1934 Italian Swiss Colony announced they will spend $100,000 for expansion of its facilities at Asti, which will include the manufacture of all its wines, additional cooperage, machinery and residences will be built, and Asti, during the 1933 vintage held the distinction of being the largest winery in the United States. Distributors for Asti in New York, Ber- nard Davitto, said that 45 percent of Urban Americas thirst, excluding beer, has turned to wine, and California manufactures 90 percent of all wines. (Does that include Ripple?) Now that you have all the hot scoop on wine making in 1934 lean back in that easy chair, open up that bottle of Pinot Noir that Aunt Gertrude brought you for your birthday last year, turn on the record of Dean Mar- tin's "The little old Wine- drinker-me" and relax, but don't fall asleep before you finish reading the gollowing gems of wisdom: Jan. 1894; The North-Western-Pacific R.R. has agreed to run an excursion train to the second annual Citrus Fair. The rate will be one fare for a round trip. Fantastic! Now those days are surely gone forever. And also that month of 1984 Mr. and Mrs. Michael Menihan celebrated their ?..Sth anniversary by having an open house at the U.S. Hotel. Ah, that grand exalted structure that entertained thousands of weary travellers on their journey through the Redwood Empire! Those were the days of nostalgic Victoriana, Barber-ship quartets, Minstrel shows (that nobody took offense to l cylinder playing phonographs, livery stables, that smelled like horse and fresh straw, wagons that watered the streets on a hot summer day, kids that went barefoot and went fishing down to the "hole", or skinny- dipping up behind the willows. Those were the days of lemonade, made from lemons that didn't contain mono-sodium glutamate; the covered bridge at Preston, Pop McCrays resort where you could get a good meal for 6 bits, nice surroundings, amiable guests and a host that was as good as the manager of the Palace Hotel in "Frisco," and a swim in the Russian river or lounging on the floating barge called "Laffayette", after Pop's middle name. Well I didn't live then, no sirree, but I can see it as plain as anything and thats almost as good as being there. That dear readers is the reason why we pass down all this knowledge and preserve all these artifacts so generations to come can take a look back o.re in a while and see what ey mean by "the good old l(ys .'" The U.S. Hotel had its" demise in 1947. The smoking ashes left behind a legacy and ended an era of our history that is still fondly remem- bered by many. So raise your glasses and give a silent toast. Ah cruel fate, t'was ever thus.

Wednesday, January 30, 1980 - Page 13 AI Rizzo announces candidacy for Judge of Municipal Court A fourth generation Californian with lifelong ties to Sonoma County, Al Rizso today announced his can- didacy for Judge of the Municipal Court, Department Number Three. Rizzo, a veteran San Francisco police officer, worked his way through law school and college before becoming a Sonoma County Deputy District Attorney. He has been engaged in private practice for eleven years in Healdsburg. Rizzo stated that his fourteen years as a lawyer gives him the experience in both criminal and civil law that a judge must have. "It is essential", Rizzo said, "that a judge understand the entire legal process, not just parts of it. As a former policemen I understand what our law enforcement officers are up against, as a former Deputy District Attorney I un- derstand the criminal prosecution process, and as an experienced private attorney I have a complete understanding of the civil aspects of the law." Rizzo charged that "There is no other announced candidate for lhe office who has this breadth of experience in all aspects of the law." "A judge", stated Rizzo, "performs the ultimate community service. He or she is responsible for protecting those who are innocent and making sure that those who are found guilty are appropriately punished. Probation must be the exception, not the rule, in crimes of violence and theft." Rizzo went on to say "It is time that all the people in- volved in the criminal justice system realize that the reason there are laws is to protect society first, not those who have committed a crime." Speaking of the upcoming race for the seat opened by Judge Hyland's retirement, Rizzo stated "The real decision which the voters of this County must make in the next few months is whether they want a judge who knows all aspects of the law or a judge who knows aspects of the political arena. I'm sure", stated Rizzo, "the people of Sonoma County want a professional for a judge, not a politician." Rizzo staled "In order to be effective, a judge must be deeply involved with the community. Genuine con- cern for the community cannot be developed on the eve of an election." In this regard Rizzo cited his years of community service which includes present service as a Director of Big Brothers-Big Sisters of Sonoma County, Director of the Salvation Army Advisory Council, Director of the California Human Development Cor- poration, eleven years as a Trustee of the Healdsburg High School District Board, and membership in the County Committee on School District Organization. Rizzo is a former member of the Sonoma County Planning Commission, Board of Zoning Adjustments, Healdsburg Planning' Commission, and St John's School Board. Rizzo is also active with the Sonoma County legal Aid Society, California School Boards Association, and Sonoma County School Trustees Association. Rizzo consistently donates over twenty percent of his pracl ice to clients who cannot afford a lawyer, but have a legitimate need for representation. Rizzo's campaign office is localed at 151 Montgomery Drive, Santa Rosa. Telephone 526-7340. AI Rizzo SOUF Town House Bath Sugar Tissue Macaroni & Cheese Truly Fine.
