Spring is here and summer is just around the corner. That means vacation time and camping trips to America's woodlands. Just one careless moment-with a campfire, a lighted cigarette, a refuse fire--and acres of stately trees can turn into charcoal skeletons. Americans residing in urban areas need to be consistently alerted about forest fires. For when they go on vacation or take trips to the woods, their limited knowledge regarding safety can be a real menace. People living in rural regions are more frequent visitors to our nation's forests and grasslands. They, too, however, also need to be reminded about the consequences of carelessness. Urban and rural Americans alike share in the responsibility to use our forest areas wisely. A gold sealed "Tribute in Friendship" from the City of Cloverdale. written by Vivian Menicucci, will be presented to Dr. Fred Sinowatz. Minister of Education and Arts, and the Honorable Leopold Gratz, Mayor of the City of Vienna, from the Cloverdale High School Band when they arrive in Vienna, Austria. Shown left to right are band Mike Pang and Elene Zagorites. MayOr right, right, presented the Tribute to by Janice. Tribute in friendship Gambling with death It's hard to believe, but motorists still gamble with death at railroad grade crossings. Last year in California 54 persons were killed in 626 train- vehicle accidents and another 173 were Injured. Most of these accidents happen during the day and at crossings equipped with automatic war- ning devices. Hard to believe. A statewide "Operation Liefsaver" crossing Safety campaign is now underway to increase public awareness of crossing dangers. It is supported by state agencies, the legislature, safety councils, railroads, and other organizations. Many drivers may not be aware that flashing red lights at a railroad crossing means the same as flashing red lights at a street or highway in- tersection. How many bother to stop, and proceed only when it is safe - as the law requires? Crossing accidents are more severe than high- way accidents - more likely to result in death and injuries, as evidenced by the crossing accident rate of 28 deaths per 100 victims injured, com- pared with the highway accident rate of only 2 deaths per 100 victims injured. Train vehicle accidents can be devastating. We have many railroad crossings in this area. We urge our readers to observe the warnings and don't gamble with death. It's your life. Save it. Letters to the editor Owe more than thanks Editor: I would like to say a big "Thanks" to Mrs. Osmon. the crossguard at the corner of Tarman Dr. All through the school year she is there every day to see that my children get off to school safely as she does for a lot of children. In the rain, cold and fog, Mrs. Osmon watches over the kids going across Cloverdale Blvd. In the heavy fog she stops the cars to get the kids safely acro the Blvd. If Mrs. Osmon wash't there to see that the kids got on the bus, or across the Blvd. we mothers would have the job of seeing that our children got to school safely. She keeps the kids in line, and out of trouble while waiting for the bus. We owe Mrs. Osmon more than thanks. I, as one, think that the City of Cloverdale or Cloverdale School Board should get Mrs. Osmon some kind of fog lamp for e mornings when it is foggy - because all she has is the stop sign, which you can't see to well if it is real foggy. I for one know that a lot of cars don't use their lights on foggy mornings. And light colored cars are a little hard to see in the fog if they don't use their lights. I think we the people of Cioverdale should make sure that Mrs. Osmon has more than a stop sign when walkiaff out on the Blvd. to stop cars m bad weather. Thank you Mrs. Osmon for watchingover my children all through the school year. I can relax just knowing that you are there. Mrs. C.M.

Due to drying conditions in Sonoma County the California Department of Forestry (CDF) will open fire season in Sonoma County on June 1, announced Frank Crossfield, Ranger-in-charge of CDF's Sonoma Ranger Unit. The CDF fire stations in Glen Ellen, Petaluma, Santa Rosa, Occidental, Hilton, Cazadero, Healdshurg, Cloverdale and Sea Ranch will be manned 24 hours a day until the fall rains in October or November. This year, continued Crossfield, there will be fewer people to assist property owners in fire prevention and fire-safety measures. The county residents that had someone to drop by and remind them about fire hazard reduction will not be receiving that visit this year. There is also a possibility, at this time, an engine will be missing from the initial at- tack force in the county. With this reduction in work force it is imperative that more rural home owners take steps to Ill II II I I I I DR. L.A.

The first step rural property owners should take is to remove dry flammable vegetation from around their structures for a minimum of 30 feet, or to the property line if it is closer. It also helps to keep this area watered. Roofs should be cleared of debris and dead branches in any trees over the house should be removed. Lower tree branches should be trimmed up on trees near the house. The second step would be to protect their property. If property has road frontage, a disked or plowed fire break can be constructed along the inside of the fence line. ff the property is large, grazing the fuel down with some type of livestock in the spring could be considered.
