Starting on June 13, a music study group will have its home at the Cloverdale Arts Alliance (CAA) on the second Thursday of every month. Each group meeting will deconstruct, learn the history of and learn how to play two Beatles songs. A self-proclaimed "Beatlemaniac," local musician Bob Lee will be heading up the sessions. First up on the list of songs? Two from "Rubber Soul." Lee isn't sure which tunes they'll tackle first-- before deciding, he wants to get a feel for what group participants want to tackle first-- but he's specifically looking forward to deconstructing "Drive My Car" and "Nowhere Man." Since the songs won't be decided before the session, Lee is planning on using the first meeting as an introduction to the album. Cioverdale Wellness issued permit; Quonset Botanicals turned down By Zo~ Strickland Reveille Editor zoe@sonomawest.com One more commercial dispensary will be making its way to Cloverdale. The first item on the May 22 Cloverdale City Council meeting agenda was a public hearing regarding whether the council wanted to issue dispensary permits for two dispensaries that have had permit applications in limbo for over a year. In the end, the council voted (3-1) to award a dispensary permit to Cloverdale Wellness (formerly California Wellness), and voted against (2-2) awarding a permit to Quonset Botanicals. When deciding to award the permit to Cloverdale Wellness, Mayor Melanie Bagby, Vice Mayor Gus Wolter and Councilmember Jason Turner were in favor; Councilmember Marta Cruz voted against. The council voted not to award a permit to Quonset Botanicals, tying 2-2, with Wolter and Turner voting in favor and Bagby and Cruz voting against. Councilmember Mary Ann Brigham recused herself prior to the agenda item, since she is one of the permit applicants. Prior to the council's discussion regarding whether or not to issue permits to either applicant, the floor was open to public comment. One person, Carolyn Jansen, expressed support of Quonset Botanicals, which would have been situated next door to her. "They have always kept me informed and let me know what's going on the place has never looked more beautiful than it does now and I've been there 30- something years," she said. "I'm very much in favor of them getting to get their business going." Another Cloverdale resident, Steve Nurse, expressed his concern regarding the potential of approved dispensaries having a vibrant physical appearance, such as bright lights. Another concern of his, Nurse said, is Cloverdale being known for its high cannabis presence.
