In the past decade I have seen many high school sporting events and also have experienced unruly behavior by some fans on opposing teams. While I didn't appreciate their behavior, I knew that it was usually a few kids thinking they were funny when they were not. Ms. Laughlin (Rincoln Valley Christian) was obviously offended by the behavior of a few fans (Cloverdale) but I think blaming all "fans and athletes" in CIoverdale was unfair and untrue. The people in question were dealt with at the game and at school the following day. Ironically, her remarks referring to Cloverdale fans as "a foul smell and cellar dwellers" were just as offensive and put her in the same category as the kids she was complaining about in the first place. This only perpetuates feelings of ill will instead of dealing with the problem. Unfortunate incidents (such as this one) can only serve as a learning tool for future school administrations and fans alike.

Farmers Insurance is seeking essays from high school juniors for its annual contest to recognize those students who demonstrate a sense of leadership and responsibility. Twenty scholarship win- ners selected by community leaders and social studies teachers will spend a week in Washington, DC with "A Presidential Classroom for Young Americans." "It is our pleasure to provide young teens with an opportunity to attend the Presidential Classroom program which will enable them to meet face-to-face with some of the country's most influen- tial leaders and observe government and politics in action," said Martin D. Feinstein, president and CEO at Farmers. Winners of the essay contest will have an opportunity to share their ideas on citizenship and community with other students. Activities during the week include a tour of the White House by special invitation, an exclusive CIA briefing, visits to foreign embassies, and participation in the Fourth of July celebration in the nation's Capitol. This year's one page essay will challenge students to assess the quotation as it relates to the leadership of the Civil Rights Move- ment of 1954 to 1965: =A community is like a ship; everyone ought to be prepared to take the helm." Henrick Ibsen Students with a =B" average or who rank in the top 25 percent of their class must postmark their applications and essays by April 30. For an application call (800)441-6533 or (213)964-8039. Farmers Insurance is among the nation's leaders in providing home, auto, business and life insurance. The company is commit- ted to charitable causes supporting citizenship education efforts. TDA funding tops $157,000 TDA (Transportation Development Act) money for Cloverdale has been allocated n Fiscal Year 1997-98 to Cloverdale in the amount of $157,952 for transit services and street and road work. The city must allocate $31,590 for intra-county bus service; $251 to update the county Unmet Needs Plan preparation; $3159 for the Sonoma County Paratransit Servie, and $17,801 for Golden Gate Transit. This leaves $105,151for the City's own transit service and street projects. The City has still failed to meet the 10% farebox receipts required by TDA. This year the 10% would require local fares totaling $4920 based on the $49,290 allocated for the city bus operation. The $60,861 balance will be directed towards a pavement managemnt program. The articles written by Marie Vadon Hill for the Project describe a Cloverdale of 50 years ago and businesses. One often hears about the days when had a dry cleaners, a shoe store, hotels and department Marie's articles are a nostalgic look at simpler times, gathered at favorite swimming holes on the Russian Highway 101 was the Redwood Highway, and no t the s;gns, rocks, and buildings along its route. It's hard to look at the America of decades past and not those times. It seems like everything has gotten uglier, more crowded, dangerous, and dirty. There is even an that has formed dedicated to preserving wh beauty called Scenic America--they are having a Maryland May 11-14. But getting back to Cloverdale. We have lost three the last month--Copies Etc., Fleur De Mai gift; shop, and the Rosa Auto Parts store. Sales tax revenues continue closing businesses add to this decline. Why is it supported so many thriving independent stores? We were wondering if perhaps the opening of Santa Rosa and improvements to Highway 101 beginning of the local shopping diaspora. Of course the closing of lumber mills and other companies has led to a dearth of well paying local jobs. The is that even though people may live there, if they work is Rosa they also shop in Santa Rosa. The shop at home driven home relentlessly but doesn't seem to be hitting The Economic Development Committee, the City, and ber of Commerce are working hard to market Cloverdale results are mixed. Many improvements have been made, producing businesses or small manufacturing companies materializing. We all know that Cloverdale is a wonderful unselfish and caring people with a seemingly endless volunteering. What other small City supports its own Girls Club and has its own fair? There are many positive I going on here and the situation is bound to get businesses are strong and this trend will probably Nevertheless, it is a little unsettling to see the of retail and the question remains regarding when going to happen. .Plowing Playday in Geyserville April 20 Bring the kids!
