' " , Vote on casino resolution The Cloverdale City Council will discuss its position tonight (Wednesday) regarding a resolu- tion to request the County Board of Supervisors to forward to county voters a measure opposing casinos within the county. All cities in Sonoma County have been asked to take a position on this request, re- ports Cloverdale's City Manager, Nina Regor. If there is a consensus from the cities, the Sonoma County Mayors and Council Members' Association will send a Resolution to the Board of Supervisors making the request. The idea of requesting the place- ment of a casino advisory measure on the June ballot was brought for- ward by a county supervisor. Pro- posed draft language for a June 2010 county ballot question is: Shall the voters of Sonoma County op- pose any additional gambling casi- nos in Sonoma County, including proposed casinos near Rohnert Park and Cloverdale and potential casinos near Petaluma and Wind- sor, including: opposing the United States taking such properties into trust, opposing the negotiation of >PLEASE TURN TO PAGE 3 Dogs suspected of harming farm animals and pets have been euthanized.

It was recently announced that SMART would attempt to get federal funding for the far north- ern part of the project, which would reach Cloverdale, but the Metropolitan Transit Commis- sion (MTC) has said it won't be putting the SMART project on its"New Starts," priority list for federal money "at this time." The MTC is the regional com- mission that controls federal money for transportation projects. It is made up of nine Bay Area couhties, with the four northern counties: Marin, Sono- ma, Napa, and Solano, each hav- ing one vote and the other five Bay Area counties having two votes. The two projects included on the federal "New Starts," pri- ority list right now are the exten- sion of BART to Silicon Valley and a central subway in the Chi- natown area of San Francisco. Cloverdale's mayor, Carol Rus- sell, who is also a member of the SMART board of directors, says the proposal is "not feasible." Chris Coursey, a spokesman for SMART, stressed that even though MTC refused to put the SMART project on its list, the commission supports SMART and wants to meet to discuss oth- er options. >PLEASE TURN TO PAGE 3 Eagle fans celebrate Robby Rowland passing Redwood Empire boys all time scoring record ROBBIE ROWLAND In action In the game against St. Helena Friday night where he continued building impressive scoring numbers for himself and his team. Photos by Connie Glullano Friday night, was an evening of celebration for Cloverdale basketball fans. A capacity crowd at Herb Nunn Memorial gym saw senior Robby Rowland surpass the 13 year, Redwood Empire scoring record with a 26 point perfor- mance against league rival St. Helena. In a post game commemoration, Rowland gathered with previous scoring champion Rich Waller and two Cloverdale alums included in the top ten scoring list, Craig Bernardi and Dennis Kurpinsky, to celebrate the passing of the title. Not to be lost in the festivities was the Eagles sixth consecutive league title dating back to Craig Bernardi's junior year in the 2004-05 season. The Eagles' week started in Lakeport with the conclusion of three consecutive road games, against the Cardinals of Clear Lake. In a wild first half reminiscent of an NBA score, Cloverdale converted 12 of 13 free throws, hit eight three point shots and posted 62 points against the Cardinals 44. Casey Berry scored all 21 of his points in the half while Robby Rowland added 18 of his team high 24 points during the stretch and point guard Beau Gastineau accounted for three of the long distant treys for the Eagles. Following intermission, some semblance of defense ensued as Clover- dale limited Clear Lake to 14 and 8 points respectively in the next two quarters. The Cardinal defense improved as well, however the Eagles were able to extend their lead in each period and return home with a 95- 66 win. Jerod Domenichelli followed Rowland with 23 points for the contest giving Cloverdale three scorers with over 20 points on the night. Gastineau dished out eight assists and grabbed seven rebounds to go with 13 points. Friday nights match up against St. Helena was a much anticipated game, for a variety of reasons. Needing only two points to overtake Rich Waller for the career Redwood Empire scoring mark, many fans filled the gym to see Robby Rowland's first bucket of the night. With each attempt the eagerness mounted, until 5:09 into the first quarter when >PLEASE TURN TO PAGE 6 PROUD PARENTS Carol and Rich Rowland celebrate the ac- complishments of their son at the Cloverdale Gym Friday night in Cloverdale.
