I was very pleased with the coverage theReveiile provided the event, but was disappointed in the coverage provided by Channel 50 and the Press Democrat. Community Unity Day is an event that involved the entire High School student population and approximately 150 adults in projects that benefit the entire community. Organizing better than 500 people in 35 projects is an amazing accomplishment. This feat was even more astonishing when you realize that the events origin, organization and implementation was the work of the students with a little mentoring by student advisor Joe Dobbins. Students organized this day because they had a vision of unifying the community through a single day of service. A concept worthy of notice. Recently, in your pages we have read about gang violence, young people fighting with each other and exhibiting destructive behav- iors. With Community Unity Day you have captured a large "Gang" doing positive things, like visiting shut-ins, collecting food for the local food pantry, repairing a senior's home, and beautifying a hillside. You have been a witness to the cross generational benefits 'that were produced with people of all ages, working together. You" reported on the"Spirit"of the Community" that was so evident that day, and it was appreciated. James W Teague, Cloverdale City Councilmember CARE Foundation to meet May 13 Editor'. The CARE Foundation is a non-profit Educational Foundation which, since its inception five years ago, has distributed over $30,000 to Cloverdale Schools for supplemental academic, cultural and artistic programs. Our success is largely due to the generous support of the Cloverdale community through memberships and participation in our fundraisers. Our annual meeting will be held on Tuesday, May 13 at 7:00 in room one of Jefferson School. We will elect our officers at the meeting. All interested parties are encouraged to attend. We are always looking for people who want to volunteer in our activities. Please feel free to call me at 894-4668 with any questions about CARE. Brooke Greene, CARE Foundation Secretary WlC thanks friends and card players Editor:.

To Roberta Lyons I enjoy reading your column in the weekly Reveille. Usually I agree with you whole heartedly. I read your April 23 discussion several times. But this was because I disagreed with you for the first time and wanted to reread your exposition to make sure I understood you. I concluded you and I do not see eye to eye on the need for the highest standards in all of our children's education. Thetajor distinction man shows over all the other animals is his highly superior intelligence and facile use of language. This comes in major part from the fact that the human brain is only partially developed at birth and the neural patterns the person ends up with develop postnatally over many years. More and more, research is showing that the early years of a child's life are extremely important to her (1 use 'aer" to identify both sexes) brain development and general intelligence. We are rapidly leaving behind the once highly regarded argument that our DNA uniquely controls our IQ's. Today, the science of teaching has developed far beyond it's state when most of us parents were school children. With the many new techniques and the availability of computers, our children can, and should, be expected to learn much more rapidly and better than we We should not be afraid that our children will know much more and understand life better at an earlier age than we did. I suspect that your indicated expectations of your child's learning are based to a substantial extent on your own parents' expectations of your education. But, that was a few years ago The whole idea of early education is no longer only to build basic skills and buildingblocks. Yes, that is importantbut an even more important question is: With the available new teaching tech- niques should we not expect our children to learn far more than we parents did during our brains' most formative years.. There has in fact been a dumbing down of school standards nationally. This is reflected in the declining SAT scores and the needto lower their standards, as well as in the reported average educational inferiority of our school children relative to children of a number of other countries. In a sense, the newly published standards and guidelines are to an extent merely recouping what has recently been lost in this unfortunate dumbing down that has already occurred. Man's superiority over the other animals is mediated to major extedt by his facile use of language. The most important thingyou can do is to help and expect your child's early teachers to develop to a maximum her ability to "organize thoughts and communicate ideas, knowledge, information and feeling through fluent, artic- ulate speech and appropriate language"- which might well be considered a good definition of general intelligence. There is much talk of late about a dichotomy between the educated elite and the less educated classes. In this high tech age it is even more important in order for our children to compete effectively to have the best education possible. Settling for anything less is a disservice to them. Setting high standards is important- we develop our brains by exerting and training them just as we do in developing our muscles. What is commonplace to our athletes of today was uhheard +of +fiTew years ago, I feel + strongly, we+will find the same true of our children's brains. Charles Rowe Cloverdale "Take a chance!

Maybe there are many olds who have extensive knowledge of biology, ecology, ogy, physiology, European and American History and so, I commend the public schools of Sonoma County SCOE should quit trying to mislead parents with its guidelines.
