Cloverdale Citrus Squares By DENA GAMBE'FrA Our publicity chairman is still on vacation and so I'm trying to fill in for him. Last Monday evening the Citrus Squares welcomed back Vanya Leighton, our. instructor who had been ill. There were about two squares of Senior Citizens who came at 6 to 7 p.m. for instruction and good 'exercise. Why not join the group for fun and good fellowship. The more the merrier. At 7 to 8:30 p.m. a beginners' class had their instructions. We need more people for the beginners class. From 8:30 to 10 p.m. the advanced class had their lessons. We also did a Circle Mixer dance which is fun and a great way to get acquainted with everyone. We do need more men and women in all groups to balance the squares. Remember the Citras Squares Party Night on November 1, at the Citrus Fair building. Folks from all over the county will be coming to have a fun party night. Committees are being formed for decor- ations and refreshments Continued on page 17 Mayor speaks to activity coordinators By JAN FREEMAN Tuesday, September 16, the monthly meeting of the Northern California Ac- tivity Coordinators was held at Manzanita Manor with guest speaker, Mayor Jack Dmenichelli, speaking on "The Community's View of the Convalescent Hospital." Twenty-four activity Coordinators were present from Ukiah, Santa Rosa, Sebastopol, Petaluma, Healdsburg, and the Veteran's Home at Yount- ville. The Mayor expressed some (thoughts and concern regarding the image of convalescent hospitals. He felt the image should be changed to a more positive one. There was a good exchange of ideas between the mayor and the group. The Mayor answered many very pointed questions as to what could be done to en- courage us to become more involved in the city government, along with hospital residents. The Mayor promised that the city will become more in- valved with the hospital. Although other con- valescent hospitals offer many of the same benefits, specifically, Manzanita Manor hasbesn a source of employment to Cloverdale dale over tlae past 13 years with a payroll of over a quarter of a million dollars a year, most of which is spent in the cit; of Clover- dale. In spite of a high turnover rate, we employ 70 people on a regular basis. Manzanita offers State required on-the-job training programs, vacations and- sick pay, as do other businesses, and also provides opportunities for advancement. Some of our residents, and most of our staff, are als registered voters in the State which makes us already involved in government to a degree. As these facts were brought out, many of the coordinators were able to PubliEC utilities commission orders PG& to reduce electr,c rates The state Public Utilities Commission today ordered Pacific Gas and Electric Company to reduce its electric rates by 7.4 percent or $261 million. The higher rates which had been in effort since May were required in the face of massive undercollections by PG&E of its costs of purchased fuel for electric generaton. The amount of this undercollection reached a high of $265,476,013 in the month of February, but has since been reduced to an estimated $91 million as of August 1. Today's rate reduction was possible because rates can now be set on a basis intended to recover, over a six-month period, only that $91 million in un- dercollections rather than the much higher amount outstanding last April. Even so, PG&E's current cost of purchased fuel have continued to increase and the new r&tes are intended to recover those costs, projected to be $115.3 million higher on an annual basis than they were as of last April. PUC President John E. Bryson cautioned that "the fact of ever higher current costs of purchased fuel makes it clear that today's rate reduction is only a temporary respite from a continued steady increase in the cost of energy and electric utility service. As a result of today's decision, the PUC said, all of PG&E's electric customer classes residential, commercial and industrial - receive the same uniform reduction of 0.459 cents per kiiowat- thour. For the residential class, however, the conservation- oriented three-tier rate spread has been retained," the PUC said. Under this ffasis for electric charges a residential customer who holds usage to the basic lifeline quantity of 240 KWH per month will experience a decrease of 86 cents (7.51 percent) in monthly billings ; residential customers whose monthly usage is double the basic lifeline quanitity (480 KWH) would realize a reduction of approximately $2.19 (7.67 percent) in their monthly bills; and customers using in excess of 1,000 KWH will have a reduction of $5.59 (7.69 percent) or more a month. (A table showing the effect of the Energy Cost Adjustment Clause rate revision is appended.) The commission noted that the continued use of a six-month amortization period, instead of a 12- month period, for offsetting the undercollected fuel costs reflected in PG&E's balancing account results in a substantial savings in interest costs to the utility's rate payers. The PUC anticipates that PG&E's current out- standing undercollectinn of energy-related costs of about $91 million will be materially reduced over the effecive period of the electric rates authorized today, despite the fact that Spaghetti dinner planned to honor Judge Jones Melody Morse and Terry Mack, beth of Ukiah, were married durin a late af- ternoon ceremony July 19 at the United Church of Cloverdale. The Rev. Gerard officiated at the double ring ceremony. Given in marriage by her father, the bride is the daughter of Ann Sohmierer of Keaawick, WA, and Don Hill of Taft. Mr. and Mrs. J.D. Mack of Cloverdaie are parents of the bridegroom. Baskets of ferns and baby's breath, accented with bows of peach ribbon, decorated the church where Tricia Griffin, Ramona Cooper and Anita Baker sang "Love Song." Maxine Allen was organist. Melody wore a sleeveless ivory silk organza gown with a scoup neckline and collar of escalloped em- broidered lace.

The bride's bouquet was a cascade of peach carnations and baby's breath centered with Japette orchids. Identical floor length gown of apricot quiana, fashioned with scoop necklines, split elbow length sleeves and pleated skirts with self-bolts, were worn by Patty Clark, maid of honor, and the bridesmaids, Donna Farley and Connie Martin. They carried long stemmed carnations with baby's breath and ribbon streamers. April Kent and Clover Martin were flower grls' see new ways to help their residents to conthme their input into their local government by visiting council meetings, Board of Supervismeetings, etc. To add to the excitement, the Mayor invited us to send a representaUve to speak to the next regular meeting of the Mayor-Councilmen's Association in November. This was a very generous offer and the ladies ex- pressed their appreciation for his concern. Other matters discussed were the upcoming Activity Coordinators' Convention in Santa Rosa, October 16, 17, and 18 and an idea-sharing time to help us better serve the residents of our hospitals and to deal with any problems in special situatons. such rates are lower than those previously in effect.
