Page 4, Cloverdale Reveille, June 25, 1997 Reader supports teen center at City Park Editor:. In response to the articles that were in the Reveille on June 18, 1997, concerning the "Teen Center". I am a member of the Youth Partnership Committee. I would like to correctly inform the citizens of Cloverdale. First of all the Scout Building in the City Park is NOT going to be a"Troubled Teen Center". It would be used as a place for counseling teens that are beginning to show indica- tions of problems. These are not teens that are dangerous. These are teens that need support from the people in the community that care about their future. The goal of this program is to help the youth of Cloverdale and to make it a safer place, not to take away the feeling of safety and security of the City Park. My husband and I have been citizens of Cloverdale for a long time. We have-four children of our own with ages ranging from two to 13 years old and use the park periodically ourselves. We hope that our children do not take the wrong path while growing up, but it is reassuring to know that if they do there is a program such as this to help them. We support this program 110%. Sincerely, Libby Pedersen Failure to renew lease a poor decision Editor:. Cloverdale Cooperative PreSchool has been thriving for 30 years, 17 of which in the Scout Shack at the Cloverdale City Park (leased from the City of Cloverdale). On June 3 the pre-school teacher called the City to find out where the school's supplies should be stored for the summer. She was told the lease would not be renewed, the PreSchool had to be out of the building in two weeks (no written notification, just a chance phone call). This little building and playground is a perfect setting for PreSchoolers. This decision disrupts the lives of about 25 youngsters. I feel it is a poor decision. I think it is a shame that it was handled in such a manner. Jacquie Proschold Mother extends gratitude to Cloverdale Editor:. I am writing to thank you for the recent article regarding my son, Marcus Elliott Woody, and his graduation from Harvard Medical School. I would especially like to thank Cloverdale, with its caring, small town atmosphere, excellent schools, teachers, coaches, friends and countless others all of whom contributed greatly to the devel- opment of his compassion for people and his life goals. To all of you, I extend my deepest gratitude. spot,., I This Week Plums, Peaches iiiiii I Rochelle Elliott Farm fresh unsprayed fruit, vegetables, flowers.

It has come to our attention that the City of Cloverdale, with no prior notice, has elected not to renew the lease the Cloverdale Preschool Co-op has had on the Scout Shack at City Park. The Preschool has been in this building for 17 years. The Cop is a valuable program to this community. The pre- school is helping parents become actively involved in their chil- dren's education and their community. The children are entering school cooperative, ready and able to learn. The parents that work in the Co-op also go on to volunteer at Jefferson Elementary School. Some volunteer their time with PTC, others with the CARE Foundation. Some of these parents even work for the school district. The city wants to put a "troubled youth" program in the building at City Park. This is the only playground in Cloverdale made just for children. Shouldn't it maintain a safe, child friendly atmo- sphere? Scott and Sandy Wilson Grace Lutheran member Cal Calloway and Pastor Paul Stark finish cleaning upthe median strip of Citrus Fair Drive. Church volunteers have adopted the area and are wstedng the trees and plan to plant colorful flowers and keep weeds in check. Grace Lutheran volunteers beautify entry Members of Grace Lutheran Church are volunteering their time and energy to maintain and beautifying the central interchange entryway into the City. In previous projects, trees had been planted along the section of Citrus Fair Drive, which to many drivers provides their first view According to Grace Lutheran Ptistor Paul Stark, so far they have close to 20 volunteers to work on the area. "There is no water going to the trees in the median. We're watering the trees a couple times a week. We're also taking care of beautifying the area--getting rid of the weeds in the cement and planting colorful flowers under the trees," he said. The church received a special grant of $500 through the Aid Association for Lutherans to be used for the project. One of the stipulations of the grant is that youth must be involved. "We thought it would be neat to involve the entire congregation. It is a way to serve the City and way to serve our lord as well, Stark said.

Dog finds happy with Cloverdale fam He was owned by a homeless family who kept him in a car 24 hours a day. One leg was totally paralyzed. The veterinarian rec- ommended amputation: at $600. He'd never been obedience trained. The future didn't look to promising for the young black Labrador dog when he arrived at the Healdsburg Animal Shel- ter in mid-March. =Our initial appraisal of Tuck- er was that he wasn't adoptable because there was just too many things going against him, par- ticularly his paralyzed leg. It dragged on the ground and dan- gled freely when he walked, caus- ing the pad to bleed and become infected. Most people felt un- comfortable looking at him. We also doubted if Tucker was house- broken since he was used to re- lieving himself in the confined spaces of an automobile," recalled shelter director, Nancee Tavar- es. The Healdsburg facility euth- anizes animals only for cause: sever aggressiveness, incurable illness or disease or inability to adjust to shelter life. Tavares said Tucker fit into "the grey area." "The staff grew attached to Tucker. I guess we all admired his spirit and joy for life, even air what he had been through. We went ahead and had him neutered. None of us could bear the thought ofputtinghim down, but we also knew living indefi- nitely in the shelter wasn't fair to the dog.  More weeks went by and no one expressed interest in adopt- ing Tucker. Enter Dan and Sta- cy Dennett from Cloverdale. =It was Tucker's face that got to me. He looked up with those big brown eyes and I didn't even notice his disability," recalled Stacy Dennett about the first time she saw him.
