Page 6- Wednesday, February 13, 1980 American Legj.9..p00 William Russell Ledford Post 293 By FRANK OLLENA l,ast Sunday The William Russell Ledford Post 293 American Legion com- memorated Four Chaplains. According to those who have been in the Post for many years, this was the most successful as far as at- tendance is concerned. A great deal of credit goes to Cohlrade Charles Harper Posy Chaplain and Com- mittee Chairman of the Four Champlains Sunday Harper received the cooperation of five of the local clergy: Rev. Pat Patterson, Rev. George Hoover, Rev. Robert Kersey, Re,,, Aaron Willard West, and Rev John Powell. A total of just over $70 was collected from the over 50 people who attended The moqey will be sent to support the Four Chaplains Chapel in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. On Wednesday, February 13 (tonight) the Legionnaires will discuss the final plans for the Pancake Breakfast, Jack Durham Committee Chairman with Jack Hiatt, Maurice Watts and Darel Mack in assistance. On the agenda will also be plans for the Post's participation in the Citrus Fair Parade. Again this year the Post will sponsor the 579th Engineer Battalion which will bring up several pieces of Army equipment such as Howit- zers, D/'agin Wagons, and a M 60 tank. World War I members of the Post will be honored by riding the Army vehicles. David Ramsey, Charles Harper, Henry Madden, Fred Vaton and Walter Karr will represent Post 293 in the parade again this year. Another toPic for discussion and action will be to choose this year's High School representative to the Environmental and Agricultural Seminar which will be held in the Sierras in June and sponsored by the American Legion with the cooperation of the U.S. Forestry and many lumber industry representatives. Robert Thompson, Com- mittee Chairman,w ill present three candidates from which the membership will choose the lucky person to attend the all eXpense paid field trip. All members who have not done so are asked to pay their dues in order that they will not be dropped from the rolls. It makes it much easier for the Finance Officer and Adjutant to collect the dues at a meeting. There are just a few who have not sent their money Commander Anello suggests that these members get off of the dinge and pay up that we can close the books on this year's business. Bob Thompson is also Chairman of the Boys State this year and reports that instead of the three representatives the Post had asked for, we can send only two. It seems as though for the first time Boys State has reached its maximum which is over 1000 boys. Incidently the Post was planning to send two students to the En- vironment Seminar, here again we were cut to one. There will be only seven students allowed from the Fifth District which com- prises 5 counties So, we can consider ourselves very fortunate in getting the one slot for Cloverdale. "I guess we are going to have to fight to keep it," Anello stated. There are still pictures of the Childrens' Christmas Party to be picked up at Domenichelli Real Estate. These colored pictures of the kids with Santa Claus are free of charge, so please let it be known that they are waiting for the parents to come in and get them. The U.S. Coast Guard Band will also be sponsored by the Post this year. This band should make a big hit with the parade watchers as they are good, and many of the local citizens enjoyed them when the Post sponsored them for a Concert in the Park last Fourth of July. Commander Anello asked that we show the two military units that we appreciate their giving up their Saturday to come up and entertain us. The Pancake Breakfast will be open to the public at $2.50 for adults and $1.50 for children under 12. The Post will sponsor Bingo games every day during the fair and the regular monthly bingo game will be held on Wednesday, February 27 at 7:30 p.m. Everyone is invited to play Bingo. Again the Blackout Game will be worth $100 to the lucky person. Have a fun filled Citrus Fair weekehd. U.S. Coast Guard Band Fonnest CLOVER reports for duty CITRUS Marine Gunnery Sgt. Roger N. Fonnest, son of Claudia T. Reck of 207 Triplett Drive, Cloverdale, Calif,, has reported for duty with 1st Marine Division, Marine Corps Base. Camp Pendleton, Calif. He joined the Marine Corps in November 1965. .... ', ,z Glordano to seek iudgeship 4t ' , Passing the California State .Bar in 1970, he worked as a ltesearch Attorney for he California Court of Appeal. He then joined the Fresno County District Attorney's office and in 1973 he accepted a position with-the Sonoma County District Attorney's Office where he has been 'primarily assigned felony cases, predominantly those involving rape and murder. Giordano believes very strongly in community in- volvement. While working for the Fresno District At- torney's Office, he taught night courses at a local law school. He has taught a class he developed in Trial Tactics at Empire Law School and is also a member of the faculty Raymond J. Giordano, Set, for Trial Attorney for the Sonoma County District Attorney's Office announced today that he is a candidate !r Municipal Court Judge in -fle Juue. 1980 Primary Election. Giordano will seek the seat currently occupied by James Jones, in Depart- ment One. Giordano believes that a judge should be "responsible, as well as responsive to the needs of his,community". A participant and observer of the Snoma'County Judicial system, lhe 8-:z year veteran prosecutor believes our Municipal Court is in need of some important changes. :Asked to expound on these :"needed" changes, Giordano cited several examples. :)'The current system of. scheduling hearings and trials is insensitive to the needs of the victim and witnesses. A reorganization to streamline the way iv which these matters are scheduled could greatly minimize this inconvenience and furthermore cut back needless overtime for law enforcement personnel". The centralization of Municipal Court activities in the Santa Rosa Hall of Justice fails to recognize the needs of citizens in Southern Sonoma County. /I believe that the Southern County Court should remain intact and, in fact, be expanded to ac- commodate a full range of court services. Likewise, a Municipal Court branch in' the Northern area should be opened to accommodate increased growth in t.hatpart of the county. Giordano continued by stating that currently California law provides that a criminal defendant who is represented by the Public Defender at taxpayer ex- pense has the duty to reim- burse the County for the reasonable value of the legal " 'services provided, or a ......... portion thereof, depending upon their present ability to pay. The court is responsible for carrying this out, and Giordano believes that all too often this provision is ignored. A Municipal Court Judge should make every effort to insure reim- bursement to the Sonoma County taxpayer where it is. appropriate. The 34 year 01d prosecutor ,believes a Municipal Court Judge should be available on a "full time" basis, not just when in court. "Police of- ficers seeking warrant should not have to waste valuable time and energy looking for a Municipal Court Judge". Giordano says "he will be there." "A full day's work for a full day's pay." The experienced, youthful prosecutor feels that he, will bring vitality, enthusiasm and dedication to the benc h . Most importantly,, however, Giorchmo stressed ' the need for a Judge to be responsible to the needs of his community. He believes that for years the courts have strived to protect the rights of the criminally accused, while neglecting the rights of victims, witnesses and the public at large. Victims, witnesses and public at large are entitled to he protected as well. Giordano also believes that where an economic loss has been sustained, restitution must be ordered. Born and raised in San Rafael, California, Giordano attended the University of San Francisco, where he received his Bachelor of Arts Degree in 1967 and his Juris Doctor Degree  in 1970. of the Santa Rosa Junior College and California Criminal Justice Training Center at Los Guilicos, where he teaches courses in Criminal Law and Procedure. Mr. Giordano is the President of the Board of Directors of the Sonoma County Family Service Agency and has been actively involved in the Santa Rosa Players since 1976. He is a member of the California Bar Association, the American Bar Association and the Sonoma County Bar Association, as well as the California District Attorney's Association and the Sonoma County Prosecutors Association.
