Page 12, Cloverdale Reveille, March 19, 1997 COLORS munity. He is also upset that people are feeling unsafe on City streets and at the park. The City and School district have opted to support an appli- cation by Social Advocates for Youth (SAY) for a $116,705 grant for CDGB funds to provide youth services in Cloverdale. The program, to be operated by SAY, would target high risk adolescents, 11 through 18 who live in distressed neighborhoods. The program features the inte- grated delivery of comprehen- sive services that are tailored to the community and involve a close partnership among the police, schools, Social Advocates for Youth, Circuit Rider Produc- tions, the Boys and Girls Club, and other youth service provid- ers. Strategies would include coun- seling, conflict resolution, alter- native activities, teen court, com- munity projects, and more. It is estimated that over 1,000 youth would be served by this propos- al. Unfortunately, the grant has been turned down at the first level of approval which is a com- mittee called the Human Ser- vices Commission that makes recommendations on such grant applications to the County Board of Supervisors which distributes the CDBG funds. City manager Bob Perrault has not given up hope, however. He said the City will go directly to the Board of Supervisors to plead its case. He has contacted super- visor Paul Kelley and is also stressing the fact that Clover- dale has not received any hu- man services related CDBG funds, it has all gone to central and southern Sonoma County. '3Ee want to start solving the problem now," Perrault noted. "We see graffiti, kids collecting in groups, and occasional fight- ing. We have seen the escalation in Santa Rosa and believe it's only a matter of time before we see the same stuff happening here. We don't have the services other communities have." He said that the Boys and Girls Club and the schools are doing a good job, but that there isn't much of a delivery system for the whole city. "The important thing is trying to recognize and work as a community before this be- comes a more significant prob- lem. In discussing the issue at a recent joint City/School district sub-committee meeting, Mayor Tom Sink stated: "I'm hearing that people are really concerned about public safety in this town fight now. That's why it's impor- tant to support this program." He said that although it may be true there are no certified gang members here, the level of gang "wannabes" is becoming more sophisticated. A public meeting is tentatively scheduled for April 17 at 6:30 p.m. at Washington School that will focus on gang related issues in the community.

"the kids are at- tracted to gangs, but they are also nervous. They may want to be scary, but they don't want to die. They are playing with fire and they know it." The principal said that even if the situation did not worsen, the City must still attend to these adolescents. This is why the schools are supporting the SAY grant to co- ordinate youth facilities. "We need that coordination," he said. The best thing to do is to pre- vent problems before they arise. '%Ve are getting marginal," Mag- er warned. "It's not a big prob- lem yet, but we need to be aware. We've got a little bit of time, but we better use it well."
