Tuesday was a concert at Lachenhof, a winter ski resort. The competition started Monday. Cloverdale sounded superb. Cloverdale people can really be proud of these students and their conductor. Shall keep you posted." Todd Junker writes: "We arrived in Vienna Heidleberg are made from cobblestone: they are really bumpy and they hurt the feet." About the band, he said: "They are doing very well and I think they have a good chance of winning." Todd is taking advantage of the musical climate and learning to play harmonica.

Cloverdale Recreation By LOU THOMPSON Another week has gone by out at the park and many things have happened during that time. We are still ac- cepting registrations and welcome new children into the program. The Monopoly Contest winner has enjoyed two barbecued hot dogs, bag of chips, a piece of fruit and a soft drink during last Mon- day's picnic in the park at noon. The lunch was Tina Vija Jacobs' prize for win- ning the contest. Last week's Carrom Tourney was won by Lisa Jacobs. The girls seem to want to keep it in the family. Lisa will have a lunch in the park this week. We are waiting to see who will be the winner of the Backgammon Tourney. This Friday's field trip will be to the Skunk Train. We will take the bus to Willits, board the train and travel to Northspur where we will stop for lunch. After eating and resting we will board the train and return to Willits. The bus will leave from the Cloverdale High School Parking Lot at 7:30 a.m. and return there at 2 p.m. The cost per child will be $5 (12 years and under) and per adult $7.50. Contact the Rec. for more information about this and upcoming trips. If you haven't had the opportunity to see some examples of the crafts the children have done through the program. We thank the Library for displaying our fine work. Jane comes home this week d will be joining us on our tt  to Willits. We are looking forward to hearing her stories about Vienna.

Slightly improved fishing An increasing number of Northern California lakes and streams are showing lower water levels and of- fering slightly improved fishing prospects for this weekend, PG&E Stream Scouts report. Water flows - in some streams continue to be swift and often hazardous. Fishermen also should be on the alert for forest fires. Several small blazes were reported last weekend. Here are some Northern California weekend picks by the PG&E Stream Scounts: Shasta Lake is dropping and is clear. The water lemperature is warming up and the fishing is expected to be fair. Cow Creeks are low and clear with some warming. Fishermen report fair results. Angling has been good at Lake Pillsbury but the water is beginning to warm up slightly.

A third cause of child abuse has recently been placed on the effects of stress. At- lention has been focused on the degree of stress placed upon families through lack of security, difficulty obtaining even basic necessities such as food and shelter, clothing, to slop it? Child abuse and spousal abuse is repetitive in families. Children who have been abused often grow up to become abusive parents or spouses. Violence is a learned reaction for dealing with problems. The child who m physically abused becomes the adult who deals with his problems by literally striking out: by physically battering his own children or spouse.

Parents and children need to establish mutual respect and rules of Chamber Chatter I I I By ROBIN SMOOT Guest Writer Hi...my name is Robin Smoot and I'm guest writing Chamber Chatter.this week. Mrs. Weer is on vacaUon and she asked me to write her column for her. She thought it would be a good idea to write it on my summer job. I work at the Chamber of Commerce Tourist Center. If you are unfamiliar with it, it's the small building tucked away under some trees in the north edge of the Owl Plaza. In Cloverdale there aren't really too many different job opportunities for the students during summer vacation. There are the typical ones: gas station attendant, waitressat a fast food place, bag person at a grocery store, etc. I've tried working as a fast food waitress and thought it wasn't had. I though I'd like to try something different. The job at the Tourist Center really appealed to me because it combines office skills with actual confrontation with the public. Really, the only prerequisite for the job is to know the area, mostly Sonoma-Mendocino counties, and to know how to type. Our first and foremost duty is to aid the public. We get, on the average of around I00 people with I00 different questions each day. These questions range from the usual, such as where are the redwoods, wineries, Geysers; to the bizarre, like where are there any rocks to climb, to where is Lake Sonoma. With the aid of the many free brochures we provide we can usually find answers to most of the questions we get. It is a very interesting b because I get to meet so many different types of people. Ive found that most of them are truly im- pressed with Cloverdale and this area. It's gratifying to know that I can help these people and most of them are very thank- ful. Along with helping the public we de various types of office work. I work along with Debbie Taber, Laura Damon, and Gilbert VilJareal (also students). It's our job to keep the brochures in stock and on the shelves. This involves keeping a close inventory and writing to the various tourist sites requesting more brochures. We also carry on all of the mailing for the Chamber and do any other things Mrs. Weber (the secretary-manager of the Chamber) requests. This summer has been very rewarding for me, as far as a job goes. I've found a unique job that is teaching me some very valuable skills. 1 hope everyone else is also enjoying this summer as much as I am...see you at the Tourist center!

Cloverdale Blvd. I I III III I I I,, Mousse Found abandoned and orphaned when just six weeks old, Mousse has been a member of the Wirtz family since they were first married. Chris and Sylvan Wirtz (Cloverdale Bakery) left Mousse, their beautiful six year old Samoyan Shepherd, in their truck while they went to watch the local fireworks held on the Fourth of July. When they returned to the truck after the fireworks Mousse was gone. They have no idea how she got out unless, as Sylvan thought, "She may have been frightened by the fireworks and got out the hack window which was slightly open." becomes a pattern when a cause becomes an excuse for child abuse. What is being done about child abuse? Many com- munities are forming child abuse teams for the handling of family violence. Police agencies, courts, and social services are working together to resolve the situation and protect the child. But before child abuse can be treated, it has to be brought out into the open. It has to be reported, and the police have to intervene "Once such intervention has occurred, however, it is recognized that it may not always be appropriate to handle this type of criminal activity with a traditional crime and punishment ap- proach." It is at this level that the "Team" approach can work. In lieu of criminal fines and time in prison, the abuser can be placed on conditional probation while seeking the needed coun- seling and support of agen- cies designed to treat the problem. At the same time is back at The Wirtzes began an immediate search for their beloved pet and made reward posters which they placed appropriately around the town and, of course, they asked everyone they came in contact with if they had seen their Mousse. Like a child the dog was always with one of them or at home, so they were worried and deeply concerned knowing how defenseless she would be out in the world...especially in the heavy holiday traffic. They were so concerned that they stayed at the Bakery and slept in their truck from Friday until Sunday night, the abuser is removed from residence with the victim who also receives supportive services. In cases of physical abuse, the family is worked with often on a daily basis. They are taught new ways of dealing with their children. Because parents are abusive it does not mean there is no love for the children. Often there is a great deal of love, and (he children are wanted, waiting Mousse  home They Richard found her back 1 Apparently Mo Chris crying, eyes as about returning reward Rick money, that he and donU of his are here. but the in dealing guilt!
