CLOVERDALE REVEILLE, CLOVERDALE, CALIFORNIA  WEDNESDAY, JULY 7, 2010- Page 7 Tuell + Reynolds donate chandeliers for the new Performing Arts, Cente00 While hammers continue to bang away during the various phases of the new theater&apos;s construction on Cloverdale Boulevard, a few blocks away on South East Street, local de- sign and fabrication firm Tuell + Reynolds are attaching over 300 sheets of brass to two massive chan- deliers which have been gifted to the community. As the plans were being made over the last few years for the new performing arts center, partners Randy Tuell and Victoria Reynolds learned of the project, considered it well-designed and conceived, and immediately wanted to offer their support for the community by do- nating their design and manufac- turing skills, along with the raw materials. Reynolds explained, "We wanted to do something very ele- gant, without being old fashioned and without being trendy." Through initial discussions and concept sketches, a direction was establishedwhich was honest, bold, modern, and innovative. The two fixtures are intentionally over- scaled: in fact, simple mockups were hung in place to confirm the size and placement over a year ago. Inside the plain exterior of each fix- ture are numerous brass sheets Elliot Reynolds, left, and Shelby Forman work on the chandeliers for the new Performing Arts Center in Cloverdale. Let the Public Speak: From the June 28 continuation of the hearing on UGB: • Dennis Rosatti from Sonoma County Environmental Action: "I feel like we are at a milestone, but I still would urge you to remove the Asti Exception Area entirely because it is not good land use process to have an island. A lot of residents are supportive of removing Asti. I'd like to thank the council for entertaining our input." • Jeanne Cox: "I would like a final confirmation on my understanding of the 550' limit. Grading would be the starting point of the structure, so the structure would be higher. By putting this in the city has control over visibility, lighting, etc."? (Affirmative response from staff Bruce Kibby.) On the definition and identification priorities for Economic Develop- ment: • Melanie Bagby - "Economic development has to reflect macro and micro economic realities. We need to correct our language and get real". She suggested a professional to help defIne goals and a business plan for better focus. • Jim Waegle representing Cloverdale Alliance for Financial Education • would like the city to consider micro-business as an alternative to em- ployment because people can be earning on their own even before businesses come here. • Nash Kunkle: "I am disappointed. I've been part of the task force and committees. To start this meeting with a definition of economic develop- ment is a big slam. I thought we were a lot farther along." • Mark Thayer: "We'd be well served to take a laser approach rather than a shotgun approach. Cloverdale is the best place to/for --. Do we know what that is? Once we decide we can focus resources to achieve those goals." • George Pouridas: "What are you offering industry? "Genuine Clover- dale" doesn't define much. It takes a lot of explaining. Get the strategy". • Mike Nixon: "It takes courage. The council and city have to have courage to make the changes to make it happen. It's gotten pushed aside in the past. Now in these tough times, you have a chance to make the right decisions." • Steve Nurse: He supports putting someone in charge of industrial growth and tourism. "People say we don't want to turn Cloverdale into Healdsburg, but what we are doing is not workIng. We need deep pockets as well as budget travelers. Thyme Square could completely change the face of the town." • Retha Walker: "Cloverdale flatlines after FNL. Our natural beauty does stand out but we don't capitalize on the river in our town. I'd like to see a spa or retreat center to capitalize on relaxation." • Susan Nurse: "I think of how we make ourselves the best place to live, work, play. People like to play when they are home - leisure businesses are a start." • Fred Cook: "My family are landlords and long-time residents. We want to see good things happen for the downtown. Empty businesses are bad for landlords, also. I hope you will keep in mind that lots of our tenants find getting a business license is not a business-friendly experience." • Bagby: "We haven't laid the groundwork [for people to shop at home.] There is overwhelming evidence that commuters shop where they work. We have to know the definitions of small business within our business plan. Our biggest asset is human capital." • David Ziegenhagen: "The 1-80 Corridor looks like a death zone com- pared to Cloverdale. One entire shopping center dead except for one store. This was a wonderful meeting to move on from." which are meant to be evocative of gold leaf. Concealed energy-saving LED lighting elements will illumi- nate the interior of the fixtures, cre- ating a glowing magical effect, which while impressive when viewed from the street, will be an incredible experience for those standing beneath them in the lobby area. The chandeliers will create a real sense of drama from the mo- ment the theater-goer enters the lobby. Tuell and Reynolds, who recent- ly celebrated 10 years of doing busi- ness under this name, moved to Cloverdale in 2006 to expand their facilities, now occupying .8,000 square feet, housed inside a former feed store. Their designs are gener- ally sold to the trade through interi- or designers and architects throughout the world. View more of their work on their website, www.tuellreynolds.com. As Randy Tuell comments, "Cloverdale has been very supportive of our busi- ness and is a great place to run a small manufacturing firm like ours. We just want to give something back to the community which has been so welcoming to us." Mary Ann Brigham, president of Cloverdale Performing Arts Cen- ter's board, made the formal an- nouncement of the donation at a recent board meeting. "This gener- ous gift," said Brigham, "valued at over $16,000, is an excellent exam- ple of how our community comes together to grow our culture and support our non-profits. We are thrilled to have the support of Tuell and Reynolds, along with so many other businesses and supporters who have given their time, energy, and donations to our new perfor- mance center. This is an exciting time to be in Cloverdale." K.Knight Cloverdale Kiwanis ambulance benefit (Ioverdale (707) 894-8977 • 1143 S.

The gift shop was dedicated in Norma Rafanelli's honor by her nephew, Dave Raffanelli and his wife Patty. Norma has been a hospital volunteer for many decades and in recognition, Dave and Patty Raffanelli helped the gift store financially allowing it to stock updated products and gifts.
