Visitors to our campus often comment on the spirit of cooperation, creativ- ity and commitment exhibited by our teachers. All of the Jeffer- son teachers spend extra time preparing to teach your children after school hours. Mrs. Plumley has seen so many children positively affected by the extra attention of these car- ing adults. Teachers are not re- quired to do many extra activities. They participate be- cause it makes the school a bet- ter place to be. Our teachers make home phone calls, arrange extra conferences, work hours decorating their rooms, spend their own money on classroom extras, attend extra workshops on their own time, read books about improving their teaching ability and even dream about students because they are dedi- cated to providing the best edu- cation possible for your children. Teacher Appreciation Day On Tuesday, May 6, the teach- ers at Jefferson School were hon- ored with a very special'reacher Appreciation .

Classified staff pre- pared a flower strewn table of hors d'oeuvres for their enjoy, ment in the staff room. Each teacher received a thank you letter from a kindergarten stu- dent and a high school student. Students in the classroom thanked their teachers with cards and appreciations. The teachers express their gratitude to all who made this day so spe- cial.

Boats out of Fort Bragg are find- ing generally good salmon fish- ing. The largest fish weighed so far has been 42 and ahalfpounds Most boats are going straight out of Noyo Harbor into the deep water trolling 30-50 feet down. Boats out of Bodega Bay have been traveling north to find salm- on. Boats going out of the Golden Gate have been finding limits far south. The best fishing has been about 16 miles south of Seal Rock. The ocean has been calm for the last few days, but a storm is forecast for the end of the week. Lake noma Bass fishing is rated fair as bass are mostly still out in medi- um to deep water. Most are us- ing rubber worms and lizards in black, red shad, and pumpkin- seed. A few fish have been caught on white and chartreuse spin- bite. Warmer weather will move the bass into shallower water and start their spawning cycle. The catfishing has been pretty slow at the lake lately. Clear Lake The bass fishing is rated gen- erally good. Most fish are being found early in the morning on their spawning beds. The bass started coming into the shallow water late last week. Most are throwing white or white/char- treuse spinnerbaits early in the morning, switching to oxblood, brown, or junebug worms in the late morning and afternoon. There is a full moon this week which along with the rain fore- cast, may change the fishing quite a bit. The catfish bite has not turned on strong yet. Most are using nightcrawlers or chunks of mackerel. Bob Sim- mons at Lakeport Tackle sug- gests that catfishermen should try fishing at the mouth of the Rodman Slough or along Tules with a worm under a bobber. lake this week. Most have either used a live shad minnow under a bobber or a topwater lure like a Zara Spook or Rapala. The top- water lures are only effective when the stripers are chasing shad baitfish to the surface. Mornings and evenings are usu- ally best. A few black and small- mouth bass have also been caught lately, most on rubber worms or spinnerbaits. The red- eared perch bite has been fair but should get better in warmer weather. Other events This Saturday the Ukiah Rod and Gun Club along with vari- ous local sponsors will host a free live trout pond for kids ages 4-16 years of age. The event will take place starting at 10 am on Saturday at the Ukiah Boat Show. There will be a limit of one trout per participant.

Cloverdale Remembered Part II By Made Vadon Hill To continue with my memo- ries of downtown Cloverdale during the years I was in high school, 1938-1942, on the corner of West Third Street was Dr. Frank Sohler's home and office. This is where I was born when it was Dr. Shipley's. Going south we then had Wallett's Electric store and apartment, previously Perry's movie theater showing silent movies, and next was Edna Cobb Gordon's building. Edna had a combination fur- niture store and undertaker's parlor. The front part of the build- ing was a furniture store adver- tising everything from sewing machine oil to bedroom sets, rugs and linoleum. She also gave vio- lin and piano lessons here. The undertaker's parlor was in the back of the store where she held funeral services as well as per- formed her duties as a morti- cian. Edna lived in an apartment on the second floor. She was tall and thin with gray hair and some of the boys in high school joking- ly called her "the buzzard  and made a game out of avoiding lips and her two' pretty daugh- and Jackson's Cigar S F  Ethel McAbee's Barl ters, LaDica and Willo (Rose), and then we came to Potter's Coffee Shop, our high school hangout. Mr. Potter was from Greece and had a heavy accent. He didn't talk much and some- times was crabby but served good hamburgers. His son, Bill, was a popular high school student and was one of the first Cloverdale boys killed in World War II. Mr. Potter expected his waitresses to clean his small apartment in the back of the cafe and they didn't like that as he sometimes followed them back there and tried to get too friendly. ARer Isaac Shaw's house and Cavalli's Grocery store came Jim McGill's Pharmacy. The other drug store was Bill Oldham's Drugs in the middle of the next block. Both were very similar with a soda fountain near the front door and the pharmacy in the rear and they sold all kinds of giR items and cosmetics as well as drugs. The soda foun- tains had six or seven stools and sold ice cream sodas, mistakes, banana splits and ice cream cones. When my husband was in high schoolhe worked at McGills after school. He was mainly a stock boy and delivered orders (drug stores delivered to your home then) but occasionally had to wait on a customer. One time he waited on a lady who asked for a box of Kotex and he almost died ofembarrassmenL This type of product was never on display but kept under the counter. How times have changed; now all types of personal products are even advertised on TV. On the corner of second Street, now a parking lot, was H.G. Grant's Dry Goods, our depart ment store, later passed on tohis son-in-law, Ray Donnelly. Gus and Charlotte Grant sold cloth- ing and shoes for men, women and children, linens, dry goods, everything from pins and nee- dies to overalls and rubber boots. Healdsburg Animal Shelter hosts "Ask the Trainer" session on Saturday, May 10 The Healdsburg Animal Shelter is hosting an Ask the Trainer session on Saturday, May 10 to celebrate Be Kind to Animals Week. Professional dog trainer Chuck Shifferling will answer any canine- related question s regarding behavior or training. Leashed dogs are welcome. A dollar donation is requested for each question asked. "If people want to tell me stories about their dogs, then weql ask two to five dollars for each story because they usually take up so much time," Shifferling explained. All proceeds benefit the shelter. The next eight week basic dog obedience class, taught by Shifter- ling, also begins that Saturday at 10 am in the shelter parking lot. The cost is a $5 discount to those who,have adopted dogs from the shelter. Call 431-3386 for more information. nerbaits, but that bite is very Lahe Mendocino inconsistent.
