www.cloverdalereveille.com September 5, 2019 The Cloverdale Reveille Page 5 Wait, Wait Don't Tell Me National Public Radio has a popular program called "Wait, Wait Don't Tell Me." During part of the show, celebrity guests tell far-fetched stories and try to fool listeners who have to guess which stories are true and which are false. Wanna play? Let's. Here is a series of "breaking news reports." Try and guess which ore real and which ones might be fake. 1. According to Axios, an online news organization, President Donald Trump has repeatedly floated an idea for preventing hurricanes from reaching American shores. "I got it. I got it. Why don't we nuke them?" one of the anonymous sources paraphrased the President as saying during a hurricane briefing. He suggested dropping a nuclear bomb in the eye of a threatening hurricane to diffuse it. 2. Japanese engineers at the Keio Institute have built a robotic tail for humans. They named it Arque and it is one- meter long and mimics monkey and large cat tail motions. It is meant to be strapped on to elderly people who are prone to falling, giving them an extra balancing accessory. 3. Scientists at UC San Diego are worried about one of their inventions that has taken on a life of its own. The scientists shipped tiny clusters of stem cells called "organoids" to the International Space Station. Lead scientist Alysson Muotri now says the clusters are "replicating like crazy" and are giving off brain waves similar to those of premature babies. Muotri said she's not sure whether she should be elated or horrified. 4. Speaking of brain computers, guess what Facebook has been up to. Since 2017, the social media giant has been experimenting with a headset people can wear that can decode unspoken thoughts. The headset can transmit the thoughts onto a computer or paper by directing typing on a keyboard. "Imagine a world where all the knowledge, fun and utility of today's smartphones were instantly accessible and completely hands-free," said a Facebook spokesman. 5. The Chinese are very competitive people. Molecular biologists elsewhere have "cloned" cats and dogs in laboratory settings. But China's Sinogene Biotechnology Company has gone a few steps beyond. They recently unveiled their first cloned cat which they will next use artificial intelligence to , transfer memories from a beloved pet to its clone. They will use man-machine interface technology they already have tested. Soon pet owners can have immortal pets with ageless memories. Any issue with tariffs was not mentioned. 6. A small city that shall go unnamed recently withdrew plans to build new high-tech public toilets in a park. The toilets were to be self-cleaning and feature a slew of security features -- including one that would put a stop to "inappropriate sexual activity" by sounding alarms and spraying any would-be lovebirds with water. Public backlash on social media led the city council to disavow it ever planned to pay for anti-sex toilets. New sets of plans are being drawn. 7. All our quiz participants who have read this far will probably get this entry correct. Kentucky Fried Chicken has announced it may soon introduce "meatless" fried chicken at its fast food outlets. KFC has teamed up with Beyond Meat and is testing the plant-based fake chicken in Atlanta. Is there a nugget of truth here, or not? 8. Room for one more. Sono Motors of Germany has built a new solar-powered automobile that also has moss on its front dashboard to serve as part of the car's air filtering system. The moss is not alive but it apparently does the trick. RESULTS: Unlike the NPR version of this quiz where true and fake stories are intermingled, all of our entries here are real news stories from verified news sources including the New York Times, Business Insider and London's Daily Mail. As they say, "you can't make this stuffup." -- Compiled by Rome Atkinson HISTORY Through the the Reveille Years in The following items are selected from archived issues of the Cloverdale Reveille. September 4, 1909 - 110 years ago Joyce Mann w.H. Hiatt is building a winery on his ranch southwest of town, and will from now on crush his own grapes. Every year more vineyardists are preparing to make their own wine rather than take chances on the grape market. As a rule, those owning their own Cooperage find it pays. Ira grower crushes his own crop, he can hold onto his product until the market improves. August 21, 1969 - 50 years ago Despite the gloss of modernity that has seeped into most of the historical interesting places in the world, there are still such things as towns, roads and mines that have survived the last century or so without apparent change. Such an area is the Northern Mines region of the Mother Lode country. You can still explore such towns as Grass Valley, Nevada City and Downieville, plus a host of smaller settlements, and find delightfully authentic examples of everything from gabled Victorian homes to rusting mining machinery. August 24, 1994 - 25 years ago The Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) recently ruled that Jeff Wilson is no longer the leader of the Cloverdale Polo Tribe, and recognizes Cloverdale Indian elder, John Santana, as the true leader. The Bureau admitted to making an error in 1991 when they let Wilson take control of the tribe. A former Cloverdale Postmaster and a local resident since 1921, Santana has been representative (chief), even after Wilson assumed the title. In April, Santana and 30 members of his tribe petitioned the BIA for reorganization in order to have 12 acres of his family's land be given Rancheria status. Four month later the Bureau realized their error and recognized Santana as the true leader and the controversial Wilson was out in the cold. Wilson was able to reestablish the tribe in 1991 following BIA guidelines that allow Native Americans to reorganize tribes that were officially terminated during the 1950s and 1960s.Wilson dubbed the tribe the Cloverdaie Makahmo Polo Tribe and then tried to set up a casino in Santa Rosa, Tomaies and Petaluma, where he was met with resistance each time. In April Santana decided to reorganize the Cloverdale tribe in order to gain Rancheria status for 12 family owned acres south of town on the north side of Santana lane. The original Cloverdale Rancheria was terminated in 1962. More recently, the City of Cloverdale designated the area containing the 12 acres as industrial. Santana reports he was told that only one building per every five acres could be built, and that it had to be a commercial building. The tribe's main objective at this time is to secure the land and in the future they may possibly build homes and seek land grants. OPINION Jonah Raskin Cannabis Country Rules make caring for kids Jbana Adams, a Sonoma County real estate roker, has an extensive support group. She needs it and so does her daughter, Brooke, who just turned 6, and who has Dravet Syndrome, a rare form of epilepsy that typically begins in infancy or early childhood and that's characterized by seizures that can last minutes or hours. The name for the syndrome comes from Charlotte Dravet, a French doctor who discovered the gene mutation that was later named after her. Brooke was diagnosed with Dravet Syndrome when she was nine months old. She had her first seizure on September 24, 2013, when she was just three months. Adams said it helped to attach a name to Brooke's condition, but the conventional medicines that doctors prescribed didn't help. In fact; many times they made matters worse. On one occasion, when a seizure lasted three hours, Brooke was hospitalized. To cope with her medical condition, which is geneOc, Adams created a support group that includes her parents, her husband, Jon, who works to support the family, and their three children, Luke, who is the oldest, Max, the middle child, and Faith, the youngest, who enjoys spending time with Brooke and helps care for her. Luke went to Sacramento on "Lobby Day" to call for legalization of medical cannabis on school campuses, like other medications used by students. "It takes a village," Adams tells me in her office in Santa Rosa at Northern Nest, where she is the president of the company she founded in 2015. The support system that Adams created where none previous existed has five crucial individuals in addition to her biological family members; Sarah Shrader, a cannabis activist with Americans for Safe Access; marijuana attorney Joe Rogoway; two doctors, Bonni Goldstein, the author of Cannabis Revealed, and Joseph Sullivan, a Dravet specialist at UCSF; and Jason David, the owner of Jayden Journey, a cannabis dispensary in Modesto. Adams drives to Modesto, buys medicine for her daughter and drives back to Santa Rosa. It's against federal law to send THC through the mail. Also, Brooke can't fly On an airplane because it's illegal to transport THC; she has to have her medicine with her at all times. Adams praises Dr. Goldstein because she explains how medical cannabis worksin the human body -- which has natural cannabinoid receptors and endocannabinoid compounds -- and provides illustrations that make it easy for a layperson to understand. Adams said, "Dravet Syndrome is similar to diabetes and thyroid conditions. If you have severe diabetes, you take insulin; if you have seizures like Dravet, you take cannabanoids to make up for what the body doesn't produce naturally." Modesto cannabis dispensary owner Jason David created a product he calls "Jayden's Juice" that contains THC and THCA for his son, Jaydon. Like Brooke, Jaydon was diagnosed with Dravet's Syndrome when he was an infant. Not surprisingly, the emotional support Adams receives from David counts greatly, as does the me cine itself. Brooke also takes CBD, which Adams buys from Charlotte's Web in Colorado. That product is named after Charlotte Figi, who suffered from seizures and Dravet Syndrome, and was greatly helped by medical marijuana. Brooke's "cocktail" includes CBDA and CBG both from Myriam's Hope, a Nevada-based company that manufactures cannabis oils that help with seizures. Adams spends $450 a month on medicine for herdaughter. The money is all out of pocket, though some companies offer discounts to patients with disabilities. The Adams family belongs to Kaiser, but Kaiser doesn't approve of medicinal cannabis. If the federal government would get with a medical cannabis program, Adams wouldn't have to drive to Modesto. She wouldn't need her extensive support system, and she wouldn't have had to take on the Rincon Valley School District, which didn't want a drop or even a seed of cannabis on campus. The district didn't even want Brooke to travel with her cannabis medicine on the same school bus as other students. As a result of that policy, Brooke attended a private preschool, paid for by the district for two years. Later, she was home schooled. Adams took the district to court and won her case, thanks in part to attorney, Joe Rogoway and her own persistence. "Call it a mother's intuition," she said. "I wanted the best life for my kid. I still do." One of the most heart-breaking aspects of the story is that the school district treated Brooke as though she had a contagious disease and ostracized her because of the stigma associated with cannabis and federal laws that make it illegal. The story isn't over yet. Adams keeps a close eye on her daughter. She has support from her group. "I hope our story will help other parents and children," Adams said. "Not all mothers and fathers know they can question doctors. We had to look for answers on our own. If you have to, you can take on a school district and the medical system."

Thursday, Sept. 12, Jazz Thursday returns for the monthly visit with Big Blue House.

Miles, Monk, Maceo, Meters, and more -- 6 p.m. downbeat. On Saturday, Sept. 14, Jimmy Chardonnay and the Coolers celebrate the harvest with some vintage classic rock. Bring your dancing shoes, as the saying goes. Weekend music at Cloverdale Ale Co. starts at 6:30 p.m and admission is free, The Arts Alliance folks probably need a break after a solid summer of Friday Night Live shows, but they're not resting the whole month. They've got Blues Night coming back on Sept. 14 with local blues crew the Blue Lights playing their mix of blues and rock classics. It has a 7:30 p.m. start. There are also learning opportunities through the Arts Alliance.

Young people are especially encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity to learn to express themselves freely through the art of improvisation. Music education has been proven to facilitate learning and intellectual development on many levels, which we all want to see.
