The new Health Care District's emergency services building, now completed and in use at 209 Main Street, will accommodate the needs of Cloverdale for the next 20 years. It has been officially recognized by the Cloverdale Pride Committee as an attractive addition to the City. Ambulance building praised The Cloverdale Economic De- velopment Commission's Pride Committee wishes to recognize the Cloverdale Health Care Dis- trict upon the occasion of the dedication of its new emergency services building located at 209 Main Street. The building was recently ded- icated to Chairman Randy Ran- dolph whose many years of ser- vice to the district culminated in construction of the new facility. The handsome two story facil- ity was built with funds realized from the sale of a neighboring home owned by the district. The old quarters next door to the -new are now being offered for sale. The structure houses two am- bulance bays, attractive office space and a laundry area down- stairs. Upstairs are two bed- rooms, a full kitchen and a day room to accommodate paramed- ics when on duty. Rick Thomas, chairman of the Pride Committee, said the com- mittee extends congratulations to the district for a job well done. Zero tolerance against drugs and alcohol It was an attitude reflected in our laws, certainly, but it was even more evident in our cultur- al response to those who used drugs. As a nation, we simply laughed it off. When we finally realized "the devastation that drug and alco- hol abuse had wrought, we changed course, adopting a strong cultural commitment to promoting healthy, drug free lives. We committed to a zero- tolerance approach for both a : O youth--and it worked. In the late eighties, drug use steadily declined. In 1979, 24 million Americans used drugs. By 1992, we had cut the number in half, to about 11 million--still too high, but real progress to be sure. Despite this progress, many today are calling for surrender against drugs. How can we let this happen? When we know that there is a sure link between drug use and violent crime, how can we give up? A 1995 National Institute of Justice survey found that 37 percent of juvenile males arrest- ed for violent offenses in three Los Angeles County facilities tested positive for drugs. In San Diego, 48 percent of juvenile males arrested for violent oftens- es tested positive for drugs--45 percent of the time that drug was marijuana. Attitudes matter. Cultural messiges matter. When we strongly discourage drug use, fewer kids try drugs. But are we as a society--as a nation but es- pecially here in California-do- ing absolutely everything we can to discourage drug use by kids? No way. I would move heaven and earth to have the same commitment to fighting drug use by our kids as we have made to discouraging tobacco smoking. ! don't like tobacco smoking. I've never smoked, and I hate to be around it. When I was in Congress, I voted to end federal price supports for the tobacco industry, and I voted to increase so-called "sin taxes" on tobacco to help pay for smokers' health care costs. But let's be perfectly honest with ourselves. While we have come a long, long way in taking on tobacco for its deleteri- ous health effects, we have dropped the ball when it comes to fighting illegal drugs. It may be unpopular to say this, but it's true: Akid who gets behind the wheel of a car is im- paired and dangerous--to him- self and to others on the road--if he's been smoking a joint or snorting crank or drinking beer. Yet you would think from our priorities that the most danger- ous driver is one who smokes a cigarette! San Francisco is the toughest anti-tobacco city in California. But it also has the most lax atti- tude toward illegal drugs. Is there a price to pay for that con- tradiction? The state Department of Health Services recently report- ed that San Francisco leads the state in drug-related deaths. Its drug-related death rate was 20.4 people per 100,000--almost three times the statewide average. It is the drug-death capital of Cal- ifornia. What if San Franciso was the automobile death capital of Cal- ifonria? Or the lung cancer cap- ital? Wouldn't you expect to hear all about their wrong headed policies on traffic and smoking? But when it comes to drugs, there is virtual silence. These are not coincidences, they are consequences. These are the results of permissive at- titudes lack of personal respon- sibility and failure of leadership. Fortunately, there are more and more young people willing to stand up to drugs and alcohol. Many community-based, youth ' drug prevention programs are trying to take up the slack and refocus our nation's attention on fighting drug use. Those who would give up can- not beat he energy of young peo- ple determined to change their world. i p HOME LOANS For buying or refinancing your home. Competitive Rates!

Lungren Illegal drugs, alcohol and to- bacco. When they are used by young people, bad things hap- pen, not only to the younger person but to our whole society. You would have to live under a rock to miss all the antitobacco rhetoric in America today. But are we as serious about keeping our kids drug and alcohol free as we are about tobacco? Recently, I spoke to a group of California teenagers who came to Sacramento for a youth lead- ership conference. Californians For a Drug-Free Youth spon- sored the event, which featured youths who have stepped for- ward as positive examples for their peers by refusing to use drugs and alcohol. These young men and women brought a clar- ity of purpose to the issue that is too often lacking in their adult counterparts. As I told these young people, we've been both smart and stu- pid as a nation. We realized in the mid-eighties, after a long national experiment with so .called =recreational drug use," that young people are pretty smart about the signals we send them. And we realized that for about two whole decades, we sent a consistent message through- out culture that drugs weren't so bad, that they were kind of funny and harmless.

Blazing Guns ka Flneri Would you like to hear the story about the River Read gun battle? while our family was liv- ing at the Shelford House, in the 1930s, a widow and her two young sons, leased the old Os- mon place, a fruit ranch, ap- proximately nine miles from our place, near the end of River Road. They were well liked by the neighbors and accepted favor- ably by the community. A school- mate of mine lived on the adjoining ranch and can remem- ber being invited to their place for many pleasant games of crib- bage. She said they seemed to be a nice, close family. The boys took good care of the fruit trees, pruning and irrigat- ing as necessary and appeared to be doing well. After a few months, when they seemed to be well established, the boys began going by our house more oRen than usual. In those days, cars were loud- er and slower and no one unnoticed.
