Page 14 - Wednesday, September 24, 1980 MARK, MATHEW, SCOTT Blue was lost ! We looked and looked and hunted and hunted all over the neighborhoods, railroad tracks, city water property, downtown, on the highway and every single street in the Tarman Tract was scoured as we searched but we couldn't find Blue. We asked each person we met if they saw Blue would they please call us right away. We were getUng a little tmeasy because she had been gone for such a long time. Finally, three boys found Blue and brought her home to us. We were so happy...and grateful. Mark, Mathew and Scott Behrens, who live in Geyserville with their parents, happened to be visiting in Cloverde with their friends the Habenas who live on Clark Street. When the boys found Blue they knew they had the right dog. They recognized her description. Blue is easy to identify...she is a McNab shepherd about medium size with one brown eye...and one blue eye. Many thanks to the Bchren boys for caring enongh to bring Blue home. HELLO FORT BRAGG Hello and congratulations to newly elected Mayor Matt Huber of Fort Bragg, California. Matt is continuing to please his constituency by soliciting public opinion on matters of community concern. Friends from Fort Bragg complimented Mr. Huber for taking the time to survey the people he represents...thereb) having a more realistic view of he public mind. They say they fill out and return all forms! Matt started his surveys when he was a coun- cilman..apparently it has paid off! DAINTY BESS "Whenever I wear it it reminds me of hiking and wild roses. Dad always cleaned out a space near the river on the bank for a picnic area and we always had our own diving board. Each ranch and each family had their own swimming hole." Maxine Decatur and I had been talking about the beautiful "Dainty Bess" flower which she was wearing on the lapel of her sweater. Light pink on the inside, dark outside. The petals' edges were scalloped and as Maxine said, "They remind meof wild roses and bring hack memories of hiking near the river." The flowers remind Marine of earlier days and many pleasant experiences and Maxine reminded me of the same kind of thing for different reasons. We have lived in Cloverdale for many years and I just realized what pleasant memories came from shopping at the Cloverdale Rexall. Marine was one of those memories. Always wearing a beautiful, usually handmade sweater and always a fresh flower in the lapel when they were in season. , Funny thing how we are reminded of pleasant experiences and most of the time, at that time, we were not aware of any importance. It isn't until later, much later, that we begin to e and remember what is really important in ore. lives and that the best things in life are free! A FAMILY AFFAIR The Benedetti's (Willie Bird Benedetti's) have made it a family affair and now own and operate, besides the farm and the meat house, a restaurant called Willie Bird's, located at 1150 Santa Rosa Avenu in Santa Rosa. Most of Cloverdale will know the Wlllie Birds (Benedettis) because o Naureen Wiget, whose daughter Kathy married Willie. I met and visited the Willie Bird Restaurant quite by accident. I was in Santa Rosa picking up an order and getting my driver's license and met a young girl who Just happened to be the niece of Jones Gianpaoli who just happens to be one of our good friends. Her name is Cherylin Astin-Sokolis and she used to live in C]overdale. As we talked we decided to talk while having a cup of coffee. That's how we got to the Willie Bird Restaurant, and then found we had all kinds of mutual friends, including, Lisa Holt and Denise Rudolph who are purses at Memorial Hospital where Cherylin also works. The menu at Willie's is as the menu says, "Turkey Always d Turkey All-Ways." I was kidding when I asked if there were turkey omeletts and turkey steaks and turkey Mrnganoff...but, it was no joke and they do have all the usual scalopini, cutlets, stroganoff, parmignna and turkey BBQ. There are other things on the menu for those who wish the regular, but it just sounds delicious and different to know {urkey is being prepared and served in so many creativ ways. It was early in the day when we went for coffee and I wasn't hungry at that time, but there is a sign advertising early breakfasts, lunch and dinners,the prices are right and so is the at mosphere. Best of all, turkey is good for you. H you happen to stop by, say hello to Riley or to Rocky. Both are related and part of the...family affair! THIRTY MILLIONTT? Thirty million dollars...for 4.4 miles of a two-way bypass? ? ? Will it be paved with gold?? If we really want to save or protect lives, why don't we ask the powers that be to "insist" upon caution lights at each end of town where the children have to cross the street two times a day, five days a week, for nine months out of the year? ? Any why didn't we ask twenty years ago??? I understand that's how long the freeway fracas has been going on. Thirty million?? You gotta be kidding!
