An outgrowth of the Reading Recovery Program, a one-on-one teaching approach that dramat ically improves students read- ing skills called the REACH Plan will be used in the classrooms. According to Plumley, for the first time this year a cross age tutoring program will be start- ed. "Eighth graders in Jon Mill- er's class will bus to Jefferson and meet with students needing additional readinghelp four days a week and they will be trained. This year we will have interven- tion at every grade level," Plum- Icy said. Breakfast and lunch programs are still offered and free and reduced lunch forms will be sent home with students on the first day, along with emergency cards which must be filled out and sent back immediately. There are several new teach- ers at Jefferson including trans- fers from Washington School: John Travinsky, David Gregg, Jocelyn Hester, and Brenda Si- moneau; and new hires, Julie Lawson (Hunt) who worked as a substitute at Jefferson; Cheroe Tappin, formerly a teacher in Healdsburg; and Julie Brandt, who lives in C]overdale and taught in Santa Rosa. The teach- ers are filling positions opened by the retirement of Mrs. Will- iams, Mrs. Peck, and Mrs. Mich- elon, and the influx of more students and class size limits. The art docent program has been replaced by a multicultural arts program geared towards this year's school theme: "Jefferson's World of Leaders'. According to Plumley, each classroom will qe- come' a country with an all year- round emphasis on multicultural literature and geography while conveying the point that people around the world are more alike than different.

According to store owner Jack Hafner, Clover carries a lot of Best Yet private label items-- items Ray's Food Place does not want and will not give credit for when they take over Clover's inventory. Ray's private label line is Western Family. As a result, Clover is not re- stocking it's Best Yet brands and at least half of the Clover adver- tisement features Best Yet goods. The store will continue to have the same sales, but has opted not to go with a 'run of the paper' ad to inform customers, relying on in-store signs instead. According to Hafner, Clover will continue operating with a full inventory. He plans on re- placing the private label brand with national brands. When word came out the end of July, that Ray's Food Place, the new supermarket at the Furber Ranch Plaza, had pur- chased Clover, Hafner was on vacation and unable to comment. Now, he explains, he just felt it was a good time to get out of the grocery business. "Within a pe- riod of two weeks it was my 50th wedding anniversary, 73rd birth- day, and 50th anniversary in the grocery business--There comes a time really," he said. He also was worried about the fate of his loyal employees. "The biggest thing that bothered me most of all, is ifl stayed, and the new store opened, I'd have to get rid of about half my people. This way most of my people will be working across the street," he said. According to Hafner, each of his employees was given the chance to be interviewed by Ray's and will probably find out if they've been hired this week. He said he did not know if employ- ees who are picked up will retain seniority and benefits accrued during their years of employ- ment at Clover. In the contract between Hafner and Ray's, Ray's stipulated that Hafner could not put a grocery store on his property for at least 10 years. Hafner recently met with Longs officials about the possi- ble expansion of Longs Pharma- cy, but as of yet, is uncertain of their plans.
