During the meeting, plans will be made for the Boys State and Girls State September dinner meeting when the high school students representing the Legion at Sacramento will be honored and given an opportunity to report on their experiences.

She is the foster daughter of Tom Vadon, grandson of Mrs. and Mrs. Fred Vadon. Comrade Vadon is the only charter member of the Post still residing in Cloverdale. Plans will also be made for the Sonoma County Council meeting which will be held in Cloverdale after the Boys State meeting. Legionnaires representing Amrican Legion Posts from thoughout Sonoma County will attend the Council meeting. The William Russell Ledford Post 293 received a special delivery letter from the North Pole; a letter from Mrs. Santa Claus informing the members that Santa was too busy to write. The letter went on... "Santa enjoyed himself immensely last Christmas in Cloverdale and plans to return on December 14/' He wants to see each of the 500 Cloverdale chUdren who visited with him and invites them to bring their little friends. Mrs. Claus wrote that Santa has a very special surpirse for his little friends this year, and that if all goes as planned, the local kids should really have a fun day on December 14. She wrote that Santa will write as Christmas gets closer. The letter included special regards to his friends Tom and Kevin of the Cloverdale F-ire Department. Apportionment of taxes distributed State Controller Kenneth Cory today announced the distribution of $6,207,980 to counties and cities as the July apportionment of cigarette tax. Sonoma County received $23,132 and C]overdale City got $878. The 58 counties' share was $1,122,650 and the cities' share totaled $5,085,330. This distribution represents 30 percent of the revenue deposited in the Cigarette Tax Fund during the month of June, 1980, less the State's administrative costs of $31,803. Distribution of $58,279,494 was sent to cities and counties as the July ap- portionment of State- collected "in-lieu" motor vehicle license fees, plus another $179,757 in semi- annual apportionment of off- highway license fees. Cory reported Sonoma County received $363,615 in motor vehicle fees a=. $I,121 in off-highway fees. In ad- dition, the City of Cloverdale received $6,464 from motor vehicles and $19 from off- highway. The distribution represents the cities and counties share of license fees and other revenue deposited in the Motor Vehicle License Fee Account during June, 960, and the semi-annual allocation of revenues deposited in the off- highway License Fee Fund. The State excise tax at the rate of $2 per $100 of market value takes the place of local property tax on motor vehicles., Except for that portion withheld to cover administrative costs, the money is returned to local governments which may use their shares for general purposes. The off-highway revenues derive from a $4 fee charged for issuance or renewal of identification of those off- highway vehicles designated by law for such identification. This fee is in lieu of all taxes according to value levied for state or local purposes. Cities and counties may use the funds for specified activities in Connection with the use or control of such vehicles. Half of each distribution went to the cities and half to counties in the proportion that the population of each city or county bears to the population of all the cities or counties in the state. Distribution is based on the 1970 Federal Census as ad- justed to reflect new in- corporations, annexations, special censuses and State Department of Finance estimates. Distribution of $65,036,956 was made among the State, cities and counties as the July apportionment of highway users taxes. Sonoma County's share was $244,386, and Cloverdale City's share was $2,754. A total of $15,430,631 went directly to the counties; $11,893,697 to cities; $36,202,628 for expenditures on State highways, $I,500,000 to the State Parks and Recreation Fund; and $30,000 to the Bicycle Lane Account. The total apportionment was derived from the following sources: gasoline tax, $60,359,370 diesel fuel tax, $4,660,772; transfer from Transportation Tax Account, $13,000; and miscellaneous, $2,8z4. The total available for the July apportionment was $7,504,796 less than that for the preceding month. The gasoline tax was $6,137,782 less than the June figures. The diesel fuel tax was $1,374,575 less than that for June. There was no trin- sportation tax transfer in June. The distribution was $9,115,893 more than that for the same month last year.

Apportionment among counties, cities and school districts of $2,949,223 in trailer coach license fees collected during the month of June: Sonoma County's share was $73,044.34. The largest apportionment was $312,802 to Los Angeles County. The smallest was $245 to Alpine County. The Vehicle License Fee law provides that the license -fees paid on all trailer coaches registered in California be apportioned monthly to the counties on the basis of the addresses of the vehicles recorded by the Department of Motor Vehicles. Each County Auditor then semi-annually distributes the total county apportionment among the county, the city (if the address is within a city) and the school districts in which each trailer is situated.
