Page 6 - Wednesday, August 20, 1980 Thought n Things By Nobody in Particular OLD ENGLISH If you have noticed the number of buildings in town that have adopted the Italian Swiss Colony design...you will no doubt have also noticed the brand new frontage and coverage on the Clover Inn. The new frontage and coverage is Old English in design and was created by the creator known as "Italian Rose" and Don and Chris Parker who are the new owners. The "good guys" have been working on the Italian Swms Colony theme for many years and it is slowly taking hold. The Old English, which shall be called, Old Rose English or Old English Rose, blends in beautifully and is a welcome sight and addition to Cloverdale Boulevard. The idea of a small town remaining small,, and retaining its quality is very desirable. We are fortunate to have just "one" crowded street instead of many. There is just oneproblem. Cloverdale is such a neat name. It sounds so clean and green. With the new designs we may have to change our name from Cloverdale_ to Swissdale...or...Rosedale. CONFUSED This week was confusing. The convention is over and I know Carter won the Democratic nomination for president... but listening to the media...l keep thinking Kennedy did. Somehow the big loser came out the big winner and everybody is bowing down, including the winner. Oh, well! His speech writer must be elated! WOULD YOU?? Would you like to be president of the United States...or even run for the office? Me neither! Just about everybody involved in special interests .would either be against you, hate you, or turn on you. No matter what you said or how you said it, your words would be disected and interpreted by the professional hounds, the profeionl disrupters and the common ordinary disgruntled. They will not only interpret to the public for you, but will compute and retain their opinions of what they think you said to be held against you...forevermore. TAKE A STROLL Take a stroll down Cloverdale Boulevard and see the new frontage for your self. While there, say hello to the new owners. You'll like them. The main building is leased out but Chris and Don are working hard to improve both the buildings and the grounds. They are vainting, cleaning, redoing and refurbishing everything in sight...including the little cabin just behind the main building...and...Cloverdale's friend "Mario" is taking care of and improving the gardens. Ex- citing! According to a neighbor, the Clover Inn was originally owned by a couple named the Shaws. ': OF INTEREST While you are out strolling, strolling saves energy and even hearts, head south down Cloverdale Boulevard and you will also see the two new mini markets. Mini markets are an interesting idea. From the count.ry corner store to the supermarkets to mini markets. Where are we going next? Interesting! ENJOYING STRIKES The news media and now the movie industry going out on strikes provided me with a refreshing change...something different to look at and think about. Sometimes the "too professional" is boring. And I loved the TV special about our amazing animals...and the old movies. Press-time, that's what the media worries most about, prime-time, has the best junk on TV. My favorite time is Saturday...I watch the monster movies. The business of the news media is to feed and thrive on the negative. So be it...but, they also give aid and comfort to the self-interest groups who procmlm "'party unity" while making threats to walk out, to withdraw financially or refuse political support altogether. Now, how could anyone win with all that going on? What would you be winning? The threats and intimidation begin even before the speech is made. If you generalize you are in trouble, if you don't generalize you're in more trouble. It isn't, but if it were humanly possible to be all things to all men and the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, could be told to all the people all the time, and if the ideas that were good for and in the best interests of the whole people and the whole country could be implemented, would the people be satisfied? Given the limited human condition to consider, we have seen one president die in office in a wheelchair. One president shot and killed, one president forced out of office, and one president disgraced out of office. It is difficult to describe what is happening to the present occupant of the White House. Be assured, it is coming. He could be laughed out of office or just ignored and forgotten. When a president has to file a lawsuit against a major television network to get primetime, there is no telling what might be going on. Anyway, if you knew how tomake speeches, and if you really wanted the job, you could be the next president of the United States. Just remember, everybody will be against you, and you could be crucified! Todd Whitney glon Auxlllary ,n Santa Rosa at the A.merlcan Le Flamingo Hote,.

Besides the partciular st udy country chosen, several members also help people in other countries, by sending spiritual materials, having penpals, and clothing. One of the major projects the auxiliary has had during the past several years is the saving of cancelled stamps, which they send to Sweden, to an orphanage there, and they package the stamps, and sell them to stamp collectors, and in this way raise one third of their support funds. Special thanks to the members who have been saving these stamps, and a very special thanks to Barbara Peugh at the city hall who has supplied us with numerous stamps since the city receives so much mail. This week a nice box has been mailed to the organage. The nice part about this project is that all the stamps are acknowledged by those in charge and ex- press their appreciation. (Sometimes we donate and never really know if the recipient intended for has ever really received it.) If you would like to save can- celled stamps, please leave them With Marie Hill, Dilley Associates, Barbara Peugh, City Hall, or Tina Zanzi, at Town and Country for your convenience. This week the National Convention is going on (August 15-20), andour unit is most anxious to hear the outcome of several programs since our local unit's report had been mailed to National for competition. We are particularly anxious to hear who won the Golden Press II II II II Award, since oui" own Janice Corey of the Cloverdale Reveille won this award on state levei, on her articles on Children and Youth, which was the Cloverdale High School band going to Vienna, Austria, to the International Music Festival.

Irene Wehr, Foreign Relations Chairman reports that the new study country has not been selected as yet, since this is done at the National Convention, which is going on this week at Boston, Mass; Each year the auxiliary chooses a particular country to study, and to choose a special project to help this country with, such as schools, water, shelters, etc. This is done with cooperation of CARE, who works very closely with the Auxiliary on their particular project. The local auxiliary contributes each year a ten dollar donation to CARE for the particular project of the study country chosen. The Auxiliary also has a senior class and a junior class, doll dressing contest of the study country, for which prizes are awarded on the district and state level. They alo sponsor a travelogue contest for the study country as well as for a scrap-book of the study country. Last year's study country was the Dominican Republic, and the project was for the Kitchen-Warehouses needed at the schools, since this country had had a Volunteers to help with the Jerry Lewis Labor Day Telethon in Marin-Sonoma Counties are being sought by the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA).
