Page 4, Cloverdale Reveille, August 6, 1997 Keep your doors locked in Cloverdale Editor:. Being a refugee from the Bay Area and all its crime, congestion, pollution, taxes and regulations, I appreciate and love the friendly, rural, small town atmosphere of Cloverdale. However, my compla- cency was shattered the evening of July 9. While I attended an American Legion meeting in the Veterans Building, I foolishly forgot to lock my van, and someone stole a tool box containing an electric drill, bits and attachments. This drill was a gift from the Central Coast Floor Covering Association for my year of service as president in 1970. Therefore, it had sentimental value, as well as monetary value. However, to replace the toolbox and contents at a special sale price at Sears cost $130. The clerk at Sears told me he has customers almost every day replacing tools that were stolen. One customer bought $600 worth of tools, and when he took them out to his truck, he found thieves trying to steal his truck. The lesson I learned from this is there is no place to hide from the uncivilized barbarians with no honor or respect that have grown up among us. While most people are good, we must protect ourselves from those who aren't, even in Cloverdale. Lock your car, lock your doors and windows, sadly, even in Cloverdale. ' Jack Stuart, Cloverdale Reader angered over Clover Market buy-out Editor:. I was surprised to learn that Ray's Market has bought out Clover Market. I, as well as other people here in Cloverdale were looking forward to a competitive situation when it came to having a choice in grocery shopping. I keep hearing'Cloverdale residents should shop locally, if at all possible,' and I think a lot of us do. The only benefit to Cloverdale is to Ray's Market and not to the community. Now, in order to grocery shop we have to go further south to purchase the same product! I had always thought that the goal of shopping was to make your dollars stretch by comparing prices at different competitive stores. Safeway and Raley's is further south than Ray's but at least it represents competition that will benefit from the food dollars that I am forced to spend! I'm glad I live in Cloverdale, but now, I am forced to go further south than Ray's in order to purchase groceries.

Nature is the most discerning guide, if one submits ones self co"`pletely to it, but when it disagrees with you, all is finished. One cannot fight nature. Claude Monet A few weeks ago we ran a story about the ongoing County of Sonoma to purchase property and plete River Park which runs along the Russian First Street Bridge. The story mentioned that the Space District had been negotiating with Charles purchase a parcel that would allow vehicle access middle section of the park. The article said the district was having trouble Richardsons to agree to the appraised value. "The far below what they thought the value of the land was," t Space District spokesperson had said. Well, Richardson would like to air his side of the story. he wants people to know that he is not trying to stall the any way. He is simply wondering why property for tax purposes at a much higher level than it appraised for purchase as a park 'They have less than what the County has appraised it for. The District (County) has appraised it at $1,000, but we are property taxes on the same land appraised at $4 noted. 'TChen they want to buy it, they appraise it very 1 they want property taxes, it's appraised much higher. fair," Richardson noted. What Richardson wants is for the County to agree to roll] property taxes on the remaining property in the parcel what the current appraisal is. "That's what we let1 the We said 'when you guys want to roll back our pro remainder of our property, we'll be happy to sell.'" I think Richardson has a pretty good point. It doesn't that the same parcel should be appraised at two depending upon what the County wants to use it for. eee Have you heard about the Cassini Space Probe? This scary stuff. It seems that NASA is planning fueled by 72.3 pounds of plutonium in October of 1997 Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The unmanned space probe will ultimately head towards, but is scheduled to do a close fly-by, just 312 miles above in 1999. The danger, according to information on the Home Page, is that a slight malfunction, random collision with any of billions of result in the probe reentering Earth's atmosphere, and releasing its deadly cargo. Another concern is the possibility of launch, or accidents which would also result in the release of some fuel, though not as much as a re-entry accident would.. Needless to say, antinuclear activists are deepl this project. Plutonium is so toxic that less gram, an invisible particle, is a carcinogenic dose. One uniformly distributed, could hypothetically induce lung every person on Earth. Is gathering information about Saturn worth of the Earth? opponents want to know. They also point a few years solar techonology will be available to power why not wait? Cassini is one of the to Sonoma State's "Project Cen sored,"vlich focuses on the blatant examples of censorship of important news Nation and the World.
