When this park was original- ly planned, Mary Ann Brigham and the Neighborhood Watch group had requested security cameras be installed. Mary Ann was even able to get an agreement from a company to provide the cameras and do the installation at a reduced cost. During many meetings with city officials during that time and the years since, our concerns have always been the vandalism, gang activity and drug activity that occurs in this park. It occurred prior to the renovation of the park and continually since. Now you feel this is really an important issue that needs attention? Why didn't anyone listen to us before now? Do we really have so much extra money that we can afford to continue to correct the damage that has been done? Not to mention this area, which is already challenged, has a park with a very unattractive name attached to it, there prior to the renovation. The city officials never saw a need to listen to our complaints then, but now, you want to pride yourselves in showing that you are taking care of this disturbing problem and quote that you don't allow this in the other parks? Why should Clark Park ever have been treated any differently than any other park in this city? Why did this matter take so long to be made important, and at such a cost to all involved? As for the tennis shoes thrown over the electrical wires, those have been there for over six months. There have been a number of city officials who have driven under those very shoes. Why has this not been taken care of? Don't tell me as a citizen, I need to call the electrical company to have them come out and remove the shoes. They have also driven under those shoes for these many months and done nothing. Since I pay taxes to this fine city, my expectation is that the city officials will take care of removing this type of issue when seen and not when a citizen calls to complain. If in fact it does signal drug activity, then just think, we have had six months plus of that very thing, which goes along with the six years of waiting for the security cameras. Think of how many children who have been negatively affected during this time. Isn't it our jobs as adults to protect them from this sort of activity?

The police, fire, ambulance and REACH helicopter crews were professional and took into account the victim's health, welfare and as important, his dignity. Again, thank you for your prompt and capable response to this serious accident. Ron Delparmo, Cloverdale Friends are pitching in to help Josh Durant Gina Greene, owner of Rest and Refresh Massage Therapy in Clo- verdale, is pictured with four year old cancer patient Josh Durant. Green held a yard sale in August with the proceeds benefitting Josh and his family. Because of the large number of donors in the community, the ga- rage sale expanded to two houses, and generated $1500 for Josh's fam- ily. Although Josh's medical treat- ments are now covered by insurance, many of his medicines are only partially covered and with the added cost of travel to and from UCSF, the family of five spends about $1000 to $1200 a month. "We appreciate all of the help that has come our way," mother Elizabeth Durant said. To continue helping Josh's family Greene is raf- fling off gift baskets which include over $500 worth of products, even a brand new GPS. The raffle will continue until Oct. 15. Tickets are $5 each or five tick- ets for $20. Call 494-0805 to pur- chase tickets. Green participated in Milano Winery's Ladies Night Out last Saturday and sold raffle tickets there also. "This little boy has changed my life and I plan to keep raising money for him in various ways until he is 100 percent better," Green commented.

Wallace House shelter "calls all shoppers" Wallace House Community Ser- vices is in desperate need of sup- plies for their Emergency Shelter, so that they can continue providing services to the over 3,000 people that the shelter helps annually. In particular, they are in need of toilet paper, disposable razors, paper towels, shampoo and cleaning sup- plies. They could also use donations of copy paper, which is used for client case management and daily administrative operations of the fa- cility. "Just imagine if everyone in Clo- verdale donated just one item? What a huge difference this would make to those who depend on our agency for the every day basic nec- cessities of life," said Colleen Hal- bolm, executive director of the Wallace House. Patty Mannatt of Exchange Bank, an Advisory Board member has graciously agreed to place a bin in the lobby of Exchange Bank to col- lect these items. "Thank you Patty for your continued support of Wal- lace House. Thanks also to our oth- er Advisory Board members, Bruce Rouser, Jim Di Martini, Mary Jo Winter, Garry Witty, Sydney Sciaini and Val Hanchett for helping in this effort," Halboim said. In addition t ° the Exchange Bank location, you may drop off donated supplies at the shelter office at 126 N. Main "Street, Monday through Friday between the hours of 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. You may also call Gloria Higginson, Operations Manager at 894-2727. They are also looking for other locations, such as businesses, service organizations, churches or schools to place a collection bIn or donation can. The shelter board and adminis- trators realize current financial times make it difficult to give cash donations, so if you can, they ask you to think of Wallace House the next time you shop. The needy peo- ple in the community will greatly appreciate your help. For more in- formation, or if you would like to make an online donation, visit the website at wallacehouse.org. "From the Wallace House staff, Board of Directors and especially from our clients, thank you, thank you, thank you. These small acts of kindness add up to so much, to those who have so little," said Hal- bolm. • OUR AREA CHURCHES INVITE YOU TO ATTEND • ........  i..i Geyserville Christian Chu "Open and Affirming"  Rev.
