Clow began his adventure Nov. 3, riding from Cloverdale to Baja Mexico, where a job teaching English to seventh graders awaited him. The 28-year-old Clow reached his goal--Cuernavaca, Mexico-- the day after Christmas. Cuernavaca is 2,200 miles away from Cloverdale. The trip included a 19 hour ferry ride and a 19 hour bus ride. Clow got the idea for the trip from a geography professor at UC Davis who toured the coast of France, Spain and Portugal with his will be held Thursday, March 20, from I to 3:30 pm at the the Citrus Fair building. We start working between 9 and 9:30 am and helpers welcome for the job of moving boxes of foods and making bags. In the afternoon, the work is handling food bags, people sign in and fill out applications. Anyone helping with either type of job, please call one of the below. We owe thanks to Terrie Spent,, whose Copper Tower practice is donating, free of charge, the space for new office.

"Some of the stories he told and the narration along with the slides was just amazing to me," Clow said. According to Clow's mother, Claudia, he suffered a few mechan- ical breakdowns along the way, and some bad weather--but was helped out by many friendly and kind people. "One gentleman bought him some fire wood. Some people in Baja gave him some time on a boat they had, while they went to Alaska. They sent a Christmas card to my daughter. He met some people on a ferry going to Mazatlan. The man is a winemaker for Fry Brothers in the Redwood Valley. They took him in their camper somewhere on down the coast," his mother said. She said that along the way he met other bicyclists riding from Canada and one was going all the way to Costa Rica. "He'd leap frog with them. He met them all in La Paz and they spent some time together," she said. Clow was originally supposed to teach English to second and third graders, but he was switched to seventh graders-a grade level his mother says he finds challenging. She says the trip was a wonderful experience for him, he loves his job and his neighbors are great. "On Valentine's Day he called us. He met a couple of ladies who are going to teach him the "Salsa" (a dance)," she said. Meanwhile, we are open Wednesday, Friday and Satu am to 5 pm, and Sunday 10 to 1.

Make your dreams come true at Paula Gilbert Piano & Voice Studio Have you always had a secret dream to be able to sing and turn people's heads instead of mak- ing them cover their ears? You thought it was hopeless--thatyou were tone deaf, and couldn't even sing "Row, Row Your BoaC on key? Or maybe you've always wanted to be able to play the piano like Liberace or the "kill- er" Jerry Lee Lewis. Now's your chance. According to voice coach and piano teacher Paula Gilbert there is no such thing as tone deafness. "My belief is that ev- eryone can sing--we all have a voice and the voice is a muscle just like any other muscle in the strengthened to bring out the natural beauty of each individu- al's voice. People can learn to match pitches--even if they've been told they are tone deaf. It takes about six months to do something like that," she said. Paula has worked with people on their voices in several musi- cals in Cloverdale, including CARE's production of the W/z- ard of Oz, and Cloverdale High's recent production of Working. "I love working with people. I love asking them what they want to accomplish, and I love seeing them progress and get better and better--to sing a solo for the first time and to be able to play She has been performing since age six and has been teaching voice since she was 19. She has received training from seven dif- ferent voice teachers, and three separate piano teachers. She studied with the Bryn Mawr Conservatory of Music in Penn- sylvania, Chris Macatsoris Con- servatory of MuSic in Pennsylvania, and the Academy of Vocal Arts in Philadelphia, and at San Jose and Chic, State. Most recently she trained with Susan Casey Voice Services in MaTin. Paula began teaching piano and voice when friends and co- workers began asking her to he Ip rest and has held concerts of her own original music. She may write a play for the middle school this spring. Currently she is writing a show of her original music about the bright future of our planet. So, if you'd like to sing a little louder in church, or if you just always wanted to sing or play the piano and didn't think you could--give yourself a gii and call Paula. The wonderful thing of the voice as an instrument is that you can keep on playing it for many years and enhance your skill--just like playing the pi- ano," Paula said.
