This honor still stands true today - however, an ad- ditional recognition has been added- Cloverdale is now also becoming known as the "City United". Cloverdale, this little city of approximately 3800 people, is proving to be a "one.in-a-million" city - well on its way to the fruition of a "Miracle come true". Its recognition is broadening as each day passes. Now our "Miracle of Vienna" project has g a i n e d recognition even farther away than our own county. Through the efforts of Mike Pryor (Cloverdale Nursery) ABC'sChannel 7 came to Cloverdale last week to televise the "Miracle of Vienna" band project. They interviewed members of the band and local citizens. On the same night it was shown on Channel 7's News Scene." As a result of that show Channel 7 viewers fromthe San francisco Bay Area to Eureka and Just about, if not every single person who lives in . even Carson City, Nevada, in letters wishing the Cloverdale, is in some way helping to enable Steve Connolly and his Cloverdale High School Band to accept the great honor bestowed on them to go to the International Music Festival in Vienna in July an invitation which, in the beginning, seemed that only a "miracle" could enable them to ac- cept. With the Sonoma County Board of Supervisors donation of $]500, the Lions Club's $1000, Cloverdale Auto Parts $1000 guarantee, the Farm Bureau's $900, the Cloverdale Police Department, American Legion Auxiliary, Green Thumb Garden Club and City Council's donations of $500 each, plus many other donations of various sums, valuable gifts donated to raffle, nickels, dimes and quarters put in the cans at many locations, and fund-raising events, we believe the "'miracle" will come true. There just couldn't be another town with a more outstanding record of dedication and cooperation. As Supervisors Brian Kahn and Nick Esposfi so aptly put it- "'There's something special about the community of Cloverdale - for its ability to ac- complish whatever it sets out to do - projects that seem impossible". band luck and success. As of Friday over 75 letters were received. The Cloverdale Reveil|e and Geyserville Press heartily commend this city, every organization and each person on their dedication and highly effective services in behalf of their community and fellow citizens. We believe if a poll were taken if would show a 100 percent united town supporting this nobel project, which has brought honor and recognition to our city of Cioverdale. We're now over the half-way mark of reaching our grand total goal. W urge everyone to keep up this exciting momentum. It's a sure way to succeed.

The adoption and use of this code may prevent a continuation of the mind-boggling power- juggling we've witnessed in the past. I wish to share some of the contents of a letter I received from the Fair Political Practices Commission. This is. in response to my letter asking if it would be ethical to hijack the City Council and threaten to fly them to Cuba if they didn't adopt a conflict of interest code. "The City of Cloverdale is required to adopt a Conflict of Interest Code for its em- ployees. The Political . Reform Act has established June 30. 1980, as the deadline for all cities to adopt codes. If ,the City fails to adopt a Code by this date. you or any other resident of the City may seek an order from the Superior Court that would compel the City to adopt a Code. "You have also asked whether it is necessary for there to be a Conflict of In- terest Code in order for you to bring a suit alleging Conflict of Interests. Government Code Section 87100 provides: No public official at any level of state or local government shall make, participate in making or in any way at- tempt to use his official position to influence a governmental decision in which he knows or has reason to know he has a financial interest. "Any person residing in the jurisdiction may sue for injunctive relief in the Superior Court to overturn governmental decisions that were made in violation of Government Code Sections 87100 and 87103. These provisions of the Act are applicable to all public of- ficials within the City even ff no Conflict of Interest Code has been adopted." Anyone wishing more' in- formation, or a copy of the Political Reform Act of 1974 from whence the Conflict of \\; Interest Code springs, may write the Fair Political Practices Commission, Box 807, Sacramento, 95804, or call 916-322-6444.

We at the Chamber of Commerce wish to thank all "the wonderful volunteers who "so unselfishly gave of their time and energies to put the parade on the road; you all deserve blue ribbons! With appreciation, Your Cloverdale Cha m ber of Commerce Board of Directors Still those who trust Editor: Last Friday evening I managed to run out of gasoline near Oakmont on Highway 12. While I sat in my car waiting for a highway patrolman to happen by, a couple in a nearby home came out to see if they could help. Upon learning of my plight, the gentleman brought out a container full of gas and offered it to me. I asked if I could take the container ahd have it refilled the next day. Driving away, I realized that a perfect stranger had trusted me not only with 2.5 gallons of precious gasoline, but also with the expensive container as well. The next day when I returned the gas I was pleased to meet Mr. & Mrs. D.M. Eddy. Not surprisingly, these good people are former residents of Cloverdale. I wish to publicly thank the Eddys here for their act of kindness toward me. Sincerely, Gall Luttmann Defense must be varied Editor: In further response to your Feb. 20 editorial on the in- flation and military budget, I feel it necessary to disagree with you as regards to our military preparedness. Your analogy of our defense as a roof over a house sounds very tempting to believe, however, upon in- spection, it fails to be a good analogy. A roof on a house is designed to withstand certain fixed types of elements, i.e., rain, snow, hail, wind. But what if it rained rocks or fire? Your roof that was so good yesterday is a failure that affords no protection today and in reality is a liability, in that you mistakenly think you are secure. That is the way our national defense is: what was adequate yesterday, is a total failure today. Our ad- versaries are developing weapons of offense at a rate that makes our development of a defense look like it is standing still. I must agree with you that there is indeed a lot of waste in our military program. But if you have a hang nail, you do not amputate the hand. We must trim back the waste and graft in all branches of Fred Young and Company Funeral Directors *Locally Owned Since ]859 *Funeral Services with dignity need *Complete traditional services * Memorials * Ground Burial * Immediate cremations *Burial Insurance avatlable * No membership fees * No extra charge 50 mile radius to meet every We recommend pre-need arrangements 24 hour immediate services Telephone 433-3329 or 894-2540 Healdsburg - Cloverdale - Windsor i Supervisors donated $1500 for the Vienna trip.
