Editor Editorial The message of Easter There is a mysterious, strange, joyous influence that seems to permeate everything at this time of the year - that lingers, like a sweet perfume, delicate and clean, to touch us all with its magic. It is an intriguing thing- intangible, yet real. We feel it- sense it - thrill to it. There is more to it than bunny rabbits and colored eggs, baskets and new clothes. Easter is more than a celebration because the sap is rising in the trees - and the bare branches of winter are beginning to rustle with leaves and tingling with the strength of fruition. More than blossoms turning trees and gardens into fairylands. Easter is more than a Spring festival when all the senses become alive. As far as millions of Christians throughout the world are concerned the message of Easter is contained in the declaration - "Christ is Risen!" Wordly problems at this time cannot dim the Christian way, for God's triumphant glory floods our souls. We at the Cloverdale Reveille and Geyserville Press wish you a happy and blessed Easter. Letters to the editor Tax simplicity act Editor: I haven't seen or heard anything in the news madia regarding the Tax Simplicity Act, and I am wondering why information about it is being kept so quiet I am also wondering how many people know about it or realize that they don't have to be a dupe for Jarvis II (Prop. 9); that they do have an alternative to this fraud that would allow the wealthiest 5 percent of our population to gain the most tax relief, while millions of working people, senior citizens, and renters receive nothing. We would all have to pay more taxes and fees to support Prop. 9's windfall breaks to the rich. 1'he Tax Simplicity Act would give income tax relief by making the first St0,000 of income for single people and the firsl $20,000 for couples free from taxation. Income above this would be graduated at a rate of from 1 Io 12 percent, allowing taxes 1o be dislribuled more fairly. The act would also close approximately $200 million in corporate tax loopholes. Voting for Prop. 9 to "just show Ihose bureaucrats in Sacramento that you wanl Ihe fal cut" won't do any more good than voting for Prop. 13 did. Nothing in Prop. 9 forces politicians to cut government waste; it just trusts politicians to make the right cuts. The people who stand to gain from Prop. 9 are (rely the banks, big business and corporations. Taxes on Ihe=r huge incomes would be cut in half, allowing them to pick up real estate and other investments at bargain prices. Would you like to be forced to sell your home at a reduced price to wealthy speculators? I urge you all to become informed of the effects of Prop. 9 so that you will vote NO on June 3. Petitions are now being circulated to get the Tax Simplicity Act inilialive on the November ballot and I urge your sup- port. We need fair share lax reform, but if Prop. 9 passes we are going to be m big I rouble. Sincerely, Penny Tobener Maranatha Bottle Crusade Editor: I'm a school teacher on the island of Ollet Maloelap in the Marshall Islands. On February 21, 1980 I found your bottle with a copy of the Gospel of John inside. I was quite surprised to find your booklet. I would appreciate it if you could send any additional Biblical literature, which is available. Sincerely yours Janet Edwards Education Dept. Majuro Marshall Is. 96960 Courage acknowledged Editor: We want to thank you for printing the feature story of Diane Doble and her initiating action on the Northern Sonoma Councy reformation. This letter is not intended as an en- dorsement of this action, nor a rebuttal. It is intended to acknowledge Diane's courage to step out and take action for something she believes is for the common wealth--even though it might mean standing alone. Respectfully, Dale & Diana Hudson City Clerk's Corner By BARBARA PEUGH City Clerk Just a reminder that the 1980 Census people will be out doing their job after April 1st. All Enumerators must have I.D. to present Upon request. So ff you have any questions about anyone presenting themselves as Census workers make sure to ask for I.D. Please be sure to answer all questions to the best of your ability as much of the monies that are important to the City as revenue are based on information taken by dif- ferent departments of the government from the Census. Just a reminder! The Mayor, Jack Domenichelli has signed a PROCLAMATION at the March 25th Council Meeting proclaiming the month of April as Cancer Cnmade Month and urges full par- ticipation of all citizens within the area. Watch the paper for the Cancer Smear Detection Program that the American Legion Auxiliary is sponsoring in conjunction with the Cancer Society. The program is aimed at early detection. There will be articles in the paper with full particulars. Also watch the Reveille for upcoming information on the Summer Recreation Program. Funds have been budgeted and Council go ahead has been given for advertising for two positions to be filled. Last years program seemed to be a huge success and we hope to have equally successful this year. SO, Mother's make sure to watch the paper for full particulars. The City has sent out a survey to all land owners abutting City alleys, asking owners their opinions of what should be done to alleviate the problem of badly kept city alleys. SO far the response has really been good. Owners have until April 4th to return their survey answers to City Hall. SO far about half have responded. SO, if you are such an owner and have forgotten to return your response to City Hall please get it in to us by April 4th. The City realizes that many of the alleys are important to the abutting owners and there is need for repair. But, un- fortunately, due to revenue cuts anticipated due to legislation the city feels it cannot financially take on total repairs of all City alleys on it's own. It was felt that a survey of owners would be a fair start on the problem. April 8th is the next Council Meeting and this item will probably be on the Agenda that date. So owners, give us your ideas! At the meeting of March 25th Mrs. Patricia Rose was named by Council to the Planning Commission. Welcome to Planning ELECT Angelo Scalese CITY COUNCILMAN April 8, 1980 * Retired Local Businessman 20 Year Resident of CIoverdale "Fairness, Tolerence & Honesty for the People" Pid for by Anqeto S(,lese | II Commission Pat - it's nice to have you aboard. The Planning Commissioners have a lot of work to do, it is an important commission and entails a lot of homework and studying in order to do their jobs. We are lucky there are citizens around that are willing to take on this responsibility for Cloverdale and it's citizens. Remember all of our fund raisers for the Vienna Band Trip, heard unofficially, that it really looks good for the kids and plans are really formulating.

As stated in last week's article, the North access road from Cloverdale will be out Kelly Road connecting with Hol Springs Road and into the Hot Springs Road Portal Area. The three main nor- thern end fingers of the lake are connected by access to three planned campgrounds. Those will be Hot Springs Road Camp. Cherry Creek Camp and Yorty Creek Group Camp-Education Area. Hot Springs Road Day Use Area. the North Lake Equestrian Area, and in- formation and administration center, Yorty Creek Boat Access Area and the Yorty Creek Beach will be some of the developments at this end of the lake. The water ways will be zoned for recreation allowing, for instance, fishing in areas motor boats are not allowed. Beaches, while not a rarity in design, are not all that plentiful, either, due to the slopes around the perimeter of the lake. For access to the Dam and Marina areas, Dutcher Creek Road will serve as the link from Cloverdale and will join Dry Creek Road at the project site. businesses into town with the possibilities of a boal repair- parts shop for boats and sporting goods businessess which would be compatable with the recreational uses of Ihe lake. Several families employed by the project have already purchased homes in Cloverdale and contribute to Ihe economy in many ways. , II,DI.IFE MANA(;EMENT AND ENIIAN('EMENT: Ac- cording to the Master Plan, "'Wildlife Resources lost or displaced due to inundation of habitat will be mitigated through the establishment and operation of wildlife management areas totalling some 5,200 acres." The Broad Striped area .in the pictured "Legend" shows the land set aside for the management plan. We asked the Corps about endangered species such as the now famous peregrine falcons. The engineer told us that they were not allowed to show the relocation of the nests and their habitat, but they did report that four eggs were laid last year. Of the four, three hatched and two survived. The Corps of Engineers has worked very closely with the V.S. Fish and Wildlife service for several years to not only mili gale the existing wildlife, but to also attract other species to the area.

('I,OVERDALE'S ECONOMIC POSSIBII.ITIES: Cloverdale would be the logical shopping area for some of the an- ticipated 1-'2 to 2 million visitors a year using the facilities. Those campers in the northern areas would most likely come into Cloverdale for their shopping needs. Those traveling from the north would find Kelly Road as the first entrance to the lake, leaving Cloverdale as a "Last Stop" to destination.
