Things By Nobody in Particular BUN VOYAGE The Ban Voyage Party held at Papa John's on June 15 will have come and gone.•.by the time you read this...thongh it hasn't happened as I write this column. I know I'm going to have a good time...and will enjoy the good friends and the good food...and...the good music. Gino Novella (Heaidsbur8) offered to provide the music. Gino and his Disco Band have been playing music throughout Sonoma, Lake and Mendocino County. Gino says the group plays a variety of Disco, Country and Oldies. So...l plan to have a good time...relax and enjoy the day. Next on the agenda. Cloverdale Bakery, Continental Breakfast for the Band on June 28 and then (we hope) a grand entourage of Cloverdale well-wishers at the San Francisco Airport on June 29. I understand they will be leaving at noon. (More into on this next week.) Me?? No Many friends have asked if I was going to Vienna with the Band and my answer is, no. (I don't have a student in the Band either.) I helped raise the funds...because I believe in the values, the ideals, quality, standards of excellence and the responsibility that comes with high achievement. I worked for and gave for the same reasons you did. Now l'm going to clean my house! EVERYBODY'S DOING IT SO IT...S OKAY • Everybody's doing it•••so it's okay! That seems to be the asosOphy of today's society, We have even changed our • rules and the perspective on our values to suit that philosophy. But I don't believe it ! We are free but only free to do what is right...because it will (and does) come back to us! It is our responsibility as a community...as individuals...to recognize...to promote the highest of all ideals...quality.• .and those standards of excellence• ..not just for our children...but for ourselves and for our future• If we really want a better world then we have to make sacrifices and try to improve our own vaiues...not destroy them...just because...everybody's doing it. WHYFORE ART THOU Whyfore art thou, 0 Rhetoric? Have you ever wondered about the rhetorical emptiness of political seatseekers who malign the seatholders and us. by telling us what our problems are, as if we didn't know, as if the seatholder didn't know? The words are bollow...as claims are made that our problems will be solved after the election•••when in truth...solutions can only come from those who create the problems. Wherefore art thou O Seatseeker, who will recognize the truth of the limited human condition? DISRESPECT I have the greatest disrespect for those nublic fiRures who, at the drop of a hat, will create confusion and disunite our people and our country to further their own selfish...cause...or ideology. ; BUMBLER The biggest bumblers in politics today...may not be the politicians• The biggest bumblers may be.•.we the voters! Takes time...think about it. Speaking of and thinking about. •.bumblers, while watching an old John Wayne movie,.the philosophy of the day (long ago) confirmed one of my beliefs, "When things get bad, perhaps that is the time they need the most care !" Remember now, not all bumblers are politicians or vice versa. I keep remembering how hard this public was on baseball umpires...until only one man was left that would even go near the park. And now we are doing the same thing to our politicians. An aide to one of our well known polltieians said, "It will be a sad day for this eountry when the Ameriean people are so hard on their elected officials that only mediocre people will run for office". "When things get bad, John Wayne, perhaps that is the time they need the most care." Did I say bumblers???, (All "we the people" have to do is become involved and...informed! ) We learn all about the seatholders faults and failings through the mind and mouth of the seatseeker...but weknow little or nothing about the seatseeker and his philosophy, his religion, his stability, etcetera, etcetera, etcetera• And then we learn too little...too late...as in the ease of the sick Mr. Nixon. I think all public office holders ought to have psychological, idealogical, philosophical profiles done•.. before the election...and a "leadership" training course We've already learned that responsibility does not come with a _degree but by degrees and that presenting a speech prepared by other's who also may have a cause...is not an advisable way to choose the best person to represent...we the people. Did I say bumblers??? Yes, I think I did! But I also said, "When things get bad, perhaps that is the time they need the most care! !' Thanks John Wayne!

Mclnturf, president, told members of Allied Grape Growers in annual meetings al Merced and Cloverdale. The Merced meeting for San Joaquin Valley mem- bership was held Friday at the Merced fairgrounds audilorium, while Salurday's session for north coast members was conducted at the Citrus Fair Pavillion in Cloverdale. "The Iransition from dessert wines Io table wines exploded in the 70's." Mclnlurf stated. "1969 was Ihe first year sales of California table wines ex- ceeded dessert wines, taking 51 percent of the market. By 1979 table wines had reached 250 million gallons, triple that of ten years earlier, and had capatured 80 percent of the market ." Equally significant has been "the declining interest in red table wines and an ahnosl fanatic inleresl in while wines." Over a five year period from 1974-78, the California wine induslry showed a total gain in fable wine sales of 74 million gallons. Of this 74 percent was in whites, 23.6 percenl in rose wines and only 2.3 percent in red types. For Ihe single year 1979 white wine sales gained 22 percent while red types were reduced by"rcent. Mclnu'f called the trend ironic in the sense thai ex- Iremely heavy planlings of wine grapes in the early 1970"s were concentrated on red varieties. Many lhousands of acres of these have been converted to white types by costly grafting praclices. Mclnlurf pointed out. For lheir 1979 crop Allied members received a total of $,54 luillion for 304,000 tons of grapes, for an average return for all varielies of $175.36 per Ion. "For some varieties it was a model year," Melnlurf Grand National set for C Oct. 24 The 361h annual Grand Na;ional Livestock Ex- posilion, Rodeo and Horse Show - one of the country's top livestock showcases - will lake place October 24 Novenlber 2 al the San Francisco Cow Palace, Darl•el Chapman, Grand National nlanager, an- nounced recently. Nearly 3,000 animals will conlpele for over $151,000 in prize money in beef, swine and sheep divisions. The prestigious exposilion an- nually lures ranchers from 'hroughout the United States and Canada. Several national shows and a full slate of sales - including the Cow Palace Cattlemen's All-Breed Range Bull Sale - will top Ihe activities at this year's Grand National, ac- cording to Chapman. Prominenl cattle experts from throughout the country will judge the entries. "'Ranchers were very pleased with their results from last year's show, and we are expecting the same success for 1980," Chapman said. "The interchange of ideas thai takes place at our show makes it a worthwhile slop for those involved in the iiveslock industry. An the educational opportunities lo be derived also make at- lendance beneficial for the public." The Grand National also features Ihe counlry's fifth largest rodeo, and the largest horse show west of the Mississippi.

"with a fair-sized crop selling at reasonably good prices, with excellent weather throughout the ha rvest .'" For Ihe California grape industry as a whole, 1979 was a rec,rd one in a number of respects, he added. It was the first billion dollar year for grape sales. The wine crush was a record 2.616,000 tons, and raisins had the largest crop ill 30 years at 303,000 lollS. Mclnlurf called the short lerln outlook for white grapes very good. while black grapes are likely to have continuing problems of over supply. If the wine sales curve con- linues to climb, the long term outlook looks good barring Joining setbacks by nature or the economy. A panel of legislators at each nleeting predicted the Slate trend both al Sacramento and Vuich. Washington will be to curb excessive regulation by reliring government agencies and to Iwala, impose more responsibility in served budgeting. The panels praised the Zollin increasing involvement of elecled to agriculture in political affairs the Board- and indicated the pressing be challenge now is to acquaint urban lawmakers with issues Ihe of concern Io farmers. Speaking at the Merced meeting were Cong. Tony A Coelbo, Merced, and Cong. was Charles Pashayan, Fresno, and Slate Senator Ken Maddy, Fresno.
