Councilmember Brigham feels the UGB should be designed with the largest boundary to give the city more opportunities to develop. "I'm not opposed to the UGB; I'm not in favor of the way it was writ- ten. If the public wants the UGB written this way, I will represent that," she said. When the hearing was closed, her's was the only op- posing vote. Economic Development Study Ses- sion City Manager Nina Regor started the session by asking city council members "What does economic de- velopment mean to you"? Varied responses from council generally centered on strategies for creating and sustaining economic health. Mayor Russell's definition men- tioned being able to compete against other cities, while Coun- cilmember Raymond discussed planning contingencies for times when the plan isn't working, and practicing, not just talking about steps to economic health. Members of the public and coun- cil expressed they had grown impa- tient with the city processes for choosing a direction. Councilmem- ber Wolter said, "The second phase of the branding study was market- ing the city as a destination. We never followed through."

On Sunday, July 4, at approxi- mately 9 p.m., a 47 year-old female subject reported to Cloverdale Po- lice Officers that she had been raped by an unknown assailant ear- lier in the morning in a remote area of a parking lot on Railroad Ave- nue. The victim told investigators that at 1:30 a.m., July 4, she walked to an empty parking lot located be- tween 127 and 131 Railroad Ave- nue, to wait for a friend. The victim stated her friend had yet to arrive so she decided to lie down on the concrete roadway. According to the victim, approximately two minutes later, an unknown adult male sub- ject approached her and asked if she needed help getting up from the ground. The victim stated she thought he was just being a "nice guy" and grabbed ahold of his hand. The subject then assisted her to her feet. The victim said that-they both. walked a, short distance away frow the street and toward the rear of the parking lot. At that time, the suspect grabbed the victim by the throat with his right hand and pushed her down the ground. The victim stated she landed on the ground in a supine position. According to the victim, the sus- pect then got on top of her, pinning her to the ground. He then stated, "You can't move, can you?" The victim stated she attempted to re- spond verbally but was unable to do so as the suspect continued to strangle her with his right hand. According to the Cloverdale Po- lice Department, the victim said the suspect forced himself on her and initiated unlawful sexual inter- course and unlawful sexual activi- ties against her will for approximately 20 minutes. Accord- ing to the victim, the suspect used his strength and controlled her movements by strangling her dur- ing the attack. The victim stated the suspect ran off in an unknown di- rection. The victim described the suspect as a white or light skinned Hispanic male in his early 30s, approximate- ly 5'4"-5'5" tall, "chubby" with a "belly" and short shaved dark hair. The victim was treated at Sutter Memorial Hospital in Santa Rosa and examined by a Sexual Assault Response, Team nurse. : - ....... The;, Cloverde:A?olioe  Depan:- ment strongly urges women to al- ways stay in well-lit areas and be aware of their surroundings to dis- courage potential attackers. "Don't go to an isolated area with someone you do not know or trust; do not take shortcuts you are not familiar with or that are routed through dim, unpopulated areas; and avoid areas that are filled with bushes, trees or shadows. Further, walk with another person whenever pos- sible," CPD Sgt. Stephen Cramer urged. RAPE CHARGE CONT. to Garcia's residence, detained Garcia, and served the search warrant. After a thorough interrogation, Officer Cardin arrested Cloverdale resi- dent, 24 year-old Bonfilio Solano Garcia, for forcible rape, false imprison- ment, kidnapping, oral copulation, and corporal injury to spouse. Garcia is currently in the Sonoma County Main Adult Detention Facility on $200,000 bail. Garcia is scheduled to appear in the Sonoma County Superior Court on this Thursday, July 8 at 8:30 a.m. CHANCELLOR PLACE WINDSOR BROOKDALE SENIOR LIV1NG Personalized care for Personal needs At Chancellor Place Windsor, each resident receives services that are customized to meet their • Licensed Nurses, • Specialized intervention FOR MORE INFORMATION OR TO SCHEDULE YOUR PERSONAL VISIT, CALL CHANCELLOR PLACE WINDSOR TODAY AT (707) 837-8785. i"' 'i ,i,i, ', ! CUSD BUDGET co.00 at the Historical Society was also impatient. "Think outside the box, stop worrying about what it means and just do something," she urged. "I moved here in 1993 and we're still trying to define it. It's time to start working on a plan. A town square is worth serious consider- ation, as well as focusing on fun activities, micro businesses, and en- couraging unusual businesses that don't necessarily exist elsewhere". Attorney Jim DeMartini says having local jobs will get people to shop where they work. He recalled that Grove Street in Healdsburg is an example of small businesses at- tracted to that city. "Land owners are never going to do the infrastruc- ture. I suggest organizing a public/ private infrastructure development group. We need an economic devel- opment czar," he added. "If [the city] can spend a half million on a lawyer, you can spend $100,000 on an individual to talk to the land owners and work on this." Mayor Russell presented the idea that University of Wisconsin has developed an economic develop- ment workbook for small commu- nities that might be useful. "We know who we are and what we wish to become. We can do that now with Budget Travel. I don't want anyone to think we aren't working on this." Comments that there should be a plan and process for dealing with some landlords who steadfastly refuse to work with the city on blight issues were met with general approval. "That's got to be part of our plan," said Palla. He would also like to see a study of why some in- quiring business owners walk away from Cloverdale. Councilmember Jessalee Ray- mond loved the idea of Cloverdale becoming identified as "Sonoma County's playground" and of reaching out to professionals and individuals who will bring their small businesses here. Other ideas that were charted for consideration: an arts and crafts coop; economic education; a customer-service type focus on serving potential new business owners through the per- mitting process; using the river, es- pecially having a beach; organizing to speak at service clubs and other places to reach potential business owners. In closing the discussion, Regor mentioned that she and Economic get items, such as for school bus repairs. • 70% of the Class Size Reduction funding, which ends in 2012/13 is being used in General Education, however the Tier 3 loss next year will be even greater. • A 5-year hardship grant for deferred maintenance will be used in the General Fund. • The ROP Program funds most CHS elective programs and is considered sweepable into the General Fund. A viticulture class and contribution to the law enforcement class from ROP is expected to remain in place. • Superintendent Rosatti says CUSD has adopted a theme to support college-bound students and to support vocational arts as a valid next step for other students. • It has been recommended that the day care program at Jefferson be closed as many children are attending another program and it has never broken even. • Staff in the District office is absorbing a four-hour position. • The District has budgeted for three people to take early retirement payout, each at $25,000 but that expense could be less. • The federal budget is expected to contain $5 billion for teacher retention. CUSD will contact federal and state representatives to make sure any opportunity isn't watered down or eroded. • Julie Hermosillo was introduced as the new Director of Instruction. • Theresa Burke will assume the role of Interim Principal at CHS. Principal Mary Black, who delivered a letter of resignation to the board in May, sent a second letter informing the board that she would be resigning and moving back to Texas. In May the board had voted not to accept her letter of resignation. Black said that although she appreciated the sup- port, she still needed to resign. Black served as principal for just one year. • It was agreed to conduct another study session on what the community forum should look like and to hold it sooner so the district can "hit the ground running" for the school year, rather than awaiting final budget approval from the state. The next regular board meeting of CUSD will take place July 21 at 5:30 pm to accommodate a study session about the community forum and board goals that same evening. For additional information on the district budget, interested persons can review the public copy at the Reveille office or pick one up at the CUSD office. to reveal at the July 14 City Council meeting. In summary, commitment to shopping in the community was a key point from Wolter, who feels some Cloverdalians should consid- er: "I work in Windsor and can shop at Home Depot, but I bring [my business] to Ace. My wife is committed to shopping at Ray's." Councilmember Brigham de- scribed numerous ways work on economic development can be ac- complished without a lot of money. "The worst of times can be the best for new ideas," she said.  Breakfast, Lunch, & Dinner $ Featuring: Swedish Pancakes, Soup, Salads, Burgers, Etc.
