132 years serving the community Cloverdale, Sonoma County, CA Wednesday, May 4, 2011 Volume CXXXII, Issue Number 18 50 Cents Although a late model Chrysler 300, driven by Nancy Smith, 70, swerved onto the sidewalk at the corner of First Street and Cloverdale Blvd. on Thursday afternoon, April 28, no one was harmed. The car took out a decorative trash can, sending it and its contents two stores down and damaging the exterior of one of the buildings. In front of the Center for the Arts it crashed into two vehicles, a Lexus SUV belonging to Christine Brandt an d a new Ford Flex SUV owned by Ja nnie Falleri. A witness, who had to quickly dodge the vehicle, turned off the engine of the car. He believed Smith may have been having medical problems at the time of the accident. The car at one point was going about 25 mph on the sidewalk. It also broke a city tree on the corner. Smith was transported to the hospital.

The scenes are most- ly two-person scenes, so two out of the three actors are able to rehearse together. All three have rehearsed at the local theatre as well. Charles Noland, who is a well- known actor in LA said he loves Cloverdale's 99 seat theatre. He said he is really enjoying going back on the stage since all of the work he does in LA is either TV or movies. He also noted that the small 99 seat theatres in Southern California are not as nice as Cloverdale's theatre and the productions are not that great, usually just plays to highlight the artist. "This is an amazing theatre. It's one of the best designed theatres I've seen," Noland said. "The acoustics are perfect." As part of the production, a "Love List Contest," is being held.
