And where do a lot of these dollars go? Prisons. There certainly seems to be a message here if only we will listen. Rather than look at the negative aspects of proposed budget cuts, maybe we, in Cloverdale, should school system. Maybe it's time we took charge of our own destiny. Don't feel it's not your problem if you don't happen to have a child in school. The education our stu- dents receive today will affect every single one of us in the long run.

You're the greatest.* Gang influence spread by profitability of crack cocaine The increase in gangs and gang violence can be traced back to the introduction of crack cocaine into the Los Angeles market about 7 years ago. Gangs used to keep preuy much to their own turf, but the popularity - and profitability - of crack gave them a reason to expand into previously untapped areas to increase their revenue Sonoma County is still considered somewhat unsophisticated, as fat as crack cocaine goes, which makes it "just ripe for the pickin'." The California Highway Patrol recently did a profile of the typical drug dealer out of Los Angeles, which makes it easy to see why Somona County is becoming a favorite targed. First, they ply their trade in cities and towns located along major freeway corridors. They rent innocuous looking ears (ie: family sedans, station wagons, etc.) from L.A. Airport where they can blend more easily with the crowd, leaving around Midnight and driving during the early morning hours. They stay at budget motels, renting 3, 4 or 5 rooms from which they do their selling to local gang members, and, according to the CHP, favor Domino's Pizza and Church's Fried Chicken.

The Marine is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Gudmundsen former Cloverdale residents. He is the grandson of Irene Kimmell, also a former Cloverdale resident, now of Lucerne, and the nephew of Terry Norberg of Cloverdale. Frank attended Cloverdale schools as a child.

Julian Briggs Cloverdale Ode to a sign Editor: While the mystery of the "No Trespassing" sign has been solved, I am almost sorry I raised the ques- tion, as it made a great trivia ques- tion. We did have a lot of laughs as we read it and pondered its purpose, didn't we, Mary Jo? Also, sorry the tree is probably beyond survival and has joined many other orange trees in the area - including the very old tree at the Museum. I wonder how many of us ever really read that sign over the years. Bob Laudie Cioverdale Spend reserves, save programs Editor: An Open Letter to our friends on the Cloverdale School Board, The state budget crisis has created chaos in every school district in California. This Board is currently considering over $400,000 in cuts. As you know, the C.U.S.D. budget has been cut and cut Main, over the past several years. Funding for the school libraries was slashed, for example, and is now coming under the knife again. Each position being threatened with elimination is vital. Gutting the music program would yield a short- term gain and a long-term loss. Eliminating the vice-principal at Washington School and the dean at the high school will have a tre- mendously negative impact on disci- pline and the learning atmosphere in each and every classroom. Elimi- nating the half-time counseling posi- tion at the high school will mean less time for counseling students on a personal basis. Removing the district librarian and an assistant will result in the collapse of one of this district's true assets. Volunteers are no more capable of running libraries and coordinating mat-dials and curriculum enhancement than they would be of replacing any ne of you, in your fulltime jobs. We could go on and on.
