Sculptor Susandra Spicer with "Altared Circularity." The piece, made with many"found" objects, is part of this year's Cloverdale Sculpture Exhibit in downtown Cloverdale. The exhibit continues through September. Tedd Peterson photo Stlsandra Spic00 rs A, I00rE,ct(,/rcu/ar is ;at)stract asse nDlage sc Ipture "Altared Circularity" is Spicer's latest installation in her long histo- ry of exhibiting at the Cloverdale Sculpture Exhibit. Since 2004, Spic- er's works have been an integral and interesting part of the exhibit Her work can be described as ab- stract assemblage sculpture, focus- ing on the reuse of found objects, with the intent of engaging people and challenging their personal aes- thetics. "I love the creative moment, "she says, "the 'not me' part, when the shapes, colors and textures interact in their new life with each other and the spaces they inhabit." For "Altared Circularity," Spicer brings together a patterned saw blade and serrated scythe cutting bar into an altar revering circular aspects. Spic- V er explains some of the origins of the piece, "The circular patterned saw blade was donated anony- mously. When the completed piece was displayed at my studio, artist David Schaeffer acknowledged finding it at a flea market and leav- ing it as a gift, in my drive." The whimsical element of the piece is appealing to young and old.

Enjoy the sculptures in the plaza all sum- mer! For your safety and the safety of the artwork, please do not climb or allow your children to climb on the sculptures. MEDIA RELEASE FOR FREE AND REDUCED-PRICE MEALS Application forms are being distributed to all households with a letter informing them of the availability of free and reduced-price meals for enrolled children. Applications are also available at the principal's office in each school. To apply for free or reduced-price meal benefits, households must complete an application and return it to the school for processing. Applications may be submitted at any time during the school year. The information households provide on the application will be used to determine meal eligibility and may be verified at any time during the school year by school or program officials. Requirements for school officials to determine eligibility for free and reduced-price benefits are as follows: For households receiving Food Stamp, CalWORKs, Kin-GAP, or FDPIR benefits - applications need only include the enrolled child(ren)'s name, Food Stamp, CalWORKs, Kin-GAP, or FDPIR case number, and the signature of an adult household member. For households who do not list a Food Stamp, CalWORKs, Kin-GAP, or FDPIR case number, the application must include the names of all household members, the amount and source of the income received by each household member, and the signature and corresponding Social Security number of an adult household member. If the household member who signs the application does not have a Social Security number, the household member must indicate on the application that a Social Security number is not available. Under the provisions of the free and reduced-price meal policy, the determining official(s), as designated by the sponsor/agency, shall review applications and determine eligibility. Parents or guardians dissatisfied with the eligibility ruling may discuss the decision with the determining official on an informal basis. Parents may also make a formal request for an appeal hearing of the decision and may do so orally or in writing with the sponsor/agency's hearing official. Parents or guardians should contact their child(ren)'s school(s) for specific information regarding the name of the determining official and/or hearing official for a specific school, agency, or district. If a household member becomes unemployed or if the household size increases, the household should contact the school. Such changes may make the children of the household eligible for benefits if the household's income falls at or below the levels shown above. Sponsors/agencies that use direct certification should add the following paragraph to their public release: Households that receive Food Stamp, CalWORKs, Kin-GAP, or FDPIR benefits may not have to complete an Application for Free or Reduced-Price Meals or Free Milk. School officials will determine eligibility for free meals based on documentation obtained directly from the Food Stamp, CalWORKs, Kin-GAP, or FDPIR office that a child is a member of a household currently receiving Food Stamp or FDPIR benefits or an assistance unit receiving CalWORKs or Kin-GAP benefits. School officials will notify households of their eligibility, but those who do not want their child(ren) to receive free meals must contact the school. Food Stamp, CalWORKs, Kin- GAP, and FDPIR households should complete an application if they are not notified of their eligibility by August 17, 2011.
