Page 4 - Wednesday, February 27, 1980 Community Lif h mber Ch=tter Byrne files for By VIVIAN WEER WEATHER TODAY: "Un-Fair" Well, let&apos;s hear it for the good sports who showed up with that "Show must go on" attitude to march in what must have been the leakiest parade ever. Chairman Lester Herring was heard to say after, "I'm sorta' glad it did rain, because folks have been asking for thirty years...What do you do if it rains?". Now we know... The tourist center was complete bedlam, switching quickly to "Plan B" for which there was no script. By I0:00 a.m. it was apparent that Mother Nature would get her way. The call went out for more cars as one local dealer had pulled out his complimentary automobiles...and you certainly couldn't blame him what with muddy feet and all. During the countdown, it was discovered that dae tape wouldn't stick in the rain, so Randy Randolph and Phyllis Henderson scurried to punch holes in the car signs and string lhem to the inside door handles. We are proud to say that the entire Parade Committee, Chamber Board and City Council showed up to help. All of the judges save one appeared on time, and if you didn't see them on the judges' stand, it was because they took refuge at Sciaini Hardware (The Ace Place) so that their papers wouldn't get wet. And because of so many "no-shows" and the fact that the numbers wouldn't stick, it was nearly impossible to spot, but smiling Herb Nunn pulled it off by nearly adlibbing the whole show and no one was the wiser. Great job, Herb, (without a cue card). As you probably know, the 1980 edition of the Citrus Fair Parade was dedicated to the Cloverdale High School Band with Honorary Grand Marshal, Steve Connolly accepting the award. The visitors from Cloverdale B.C. rode in the famous old Wells Fargo Stage as Grand Marshall for the event. All of the awards were presented by Diane Doble, President of the Chamber. President Tom Johnson of the Healdsburg Chamber stopped long enough to challenge the Cloverdale Chamber in the Big Orange Contest. Thanks to Lyall Neat, Cloverdale won with.his sixteen incher! Other local folks who brought in a possibility are: Bill Bates, John & Melody Maggiora, Michele McArthur, Elsie Mtrgolis, Marion Stewart, Garnet Rowland, Mr. and Mrs. Roland Osmon, Velma Snoddy, Adam Ramos and Frank De George. We thank you one and all. Municipal Court election Haymond J. Byrne, can didate for Municipal Court Judge, Dept. 5, Office 4, today filed for the election sub- mitting in excess of 4,000 signatures in lieu of the filing fee. The 4,O00 signatures were more than twice the amount required under the stale law, and according to a spokesman in. the County Clerk's Office is the largest number of signatures ever submitted in a Sonoma County election filing. Byrne's opponent in the June election is incumbent Dick l)ay, who was appointed 1o the position by Gov. Jerry Brown in May, 1979. "Gathering this petition has been a really heart- warming and encouraging experience for me," Byrne said. "It is my firm belief that jud[es should be elected by the people they will serve raher than being appointed to Ihe position. The fact that over 4".tM county citizens signed the petition indicates they agree with me that our present court system in Sonoma County is not working and that some changes need to be made." SUBJECT CHANGED: I suppose you have heard by now our friend, Billy Singleton will be in the hospital for some time (perhaps months) as a result of a fall he took at Masonite where he was employed. His injuries are serious and my source tells me he is, still paralysed from the waist down. Some of Billy's classmates and buddys are talking about organizing a henifit dance for him. Meantime, if you would like to .send along a little cheer, his address in Santa Clara Valley Medical Center, 751 So. Bascomb in San Jose. LOOK-A.BOOK: Among the many nice presentations at the Sister City Bon Voyage Luncheon was a gift of a book to our new library. It was given to Doris Bowman who has placed it on the shelves for you to share. I t is a Centennial edition about the history of Surrey, B.C. and truly a beautiful volume.

Two persons reported it to the police dept. and were told there was no animal control officer, and wouldn't he until the first of the month. Marmalade Cherbert, an animal lover, was contacted and took the cat to Dr. Anderson. The feline suffered a broken pelvic and leg. MC. is now nursing the victim hack to good health between her two jobs as cashier at Souveram and Papa Johns. Chamber Chatter called the polic dept. and was told they would now refer any injured animal to the Humane Society in Santa Rosa. However, beth partys reporting the cat deny that they were told this. Meantime Marmalade got the Bet's bill. It has been suggested that a collection he taken up down around City Hall to help with that expense. IRONIC TWIST: Marmalade Cherhert had applied for the position of Animal Control Officer and was turned down .... GOOD THINGS: Frank Fontana brought down the house with his performance at the Citrus Fair this year.

Kahn told the Kiwanians that the fact that he was speaking as the senior member of the Sonoma County board after only four years in office was a sign of the changes that have taken place in Sonoma County government in recent years. The yodng supervisor pointed to revised county land use planning policies, increased coordination in the criminal justice system, streamlined county management, and greatly expanded citizen in- volvement in counly government as represen- tative of the major changes he has helped to bring about. "'We have moved from allowing development wherever a developer could make a dollar to seriously considering the long-term impact on the well-being of our communities," Kahn said. "We are now actively encouraging [he development possible cost to the taxpayers who oow live in the county." Kahn said a key element in the county's approach to land use planning is the preser- vation of agriculture as major component of its economy. "The farmer cannot compele with the developer in terms of a quick return on inveslment" Kahn pointed out. "But over the long run, agriculture produces" essential commodities, requires very little in the way of lax-supported government services, and maintains Sonoma County as a unique place to Jive and raise our children." Kahn praised the work of new Fourth District Super- visor Nick Esposti, elected to Ihe board in 1978. Kahn said Esposti is "'honest and ex- tremely hard-working and has brought to the Board years of experience as a successful small businessman." Kahn indicated thai he hoped Esposli would have the Poetry contest offers $1000 prize ! A t. lil, r,:| prize will be Aa.:, t'ontesl chrector, a++rdcd  Ihe Poetry Joseph Melhm.
