Page 8, Cloverdale Reveille, October 8, 1997 Bandiera Winery wins in Long Beach Cru Competition It was a very good year-571 wine entries in the retain-eliminate competition for major categories resulted in a bonanza for 90 of the 124 wineries entered in the Long Beach Cru Competition. Medals awarded were 49 gold, 71 silver and 85 bronze. Canada and Mexico were represented, as well as thirteen states, some as far away as Iowa, Michigan, North Carolina, Ohio, Texas, New York and Virginia.

Lake Sonoma Winery was awarded gold for its 1995 Chardonnay, 1995 Grenache (Cinsault); and a bronze for its 1993 Cabernet Sauvi- gllon. Jazzercise instructor offers new class Change is rarely easy or simple. Whether we like it or no, humans have a tendency to form habits which they find hard to shake, especially when it comes to exer- cise. Or, perhaps, lack of exercise. As key seasons approach, we are bombarded with "get fit quick" messages from the media. Health clubs advertise heavily in January Jazzerciselnstructor Debble Per- rault (r) with two of her students, and in the Spring, hoping to capi- Lissa DuRee and Donna Fergu- talize on New Year's resolutions son in the new plaza. and the impending swim suit season. But for all the fitness hoopla, the percentage of individuals who make a lasting commitment to regular exercise remains low. Why? Perhaps it's because so much emphasis is concentrated into these two relatively short time periods. While it may help "pump us up", we risk getting over enthusiastic and bite off more than we can realistically chew. This year, why not try launching your fitness program in the "off" season? Local Jazzercise Instructor Debbie Perrault, invites you to her new "Musical Chairs" Jazzercise class. Participants alternate between chair work using light free weights and resistance tubing (for strength) and stylized walking patterns (for cardiovascular endurance). Just like musical chairs, when the music changes, find the nearest seat and pick up your toys! The class begins Wednesday, Oct. 15 at 6 pm at the Clover Fitness Center. A preview of the class will be demonstrated at the Cloverdale Health, Fitness and Recreation Fair Saturday, Oct. 11 at the Citrus Fairgrounds. For more information call Debbie at 894-3553. . i Southern grading project explained Don't don your golfing duds just yet-the four and a half acres owned by Reuser, Inc. and Louisi- ana Pacific that are being graded south of town are not going to be turned into a driving range-or a race track, hotel or casino, con- trary to rumors. According to Bruce Reuser, owner and operator of Reuser, Inc., he is grading his land for an area to do shipping and receiving, and in the future, may put more buildings on it if they are needed. He is also grading Louisiana Pa- cific's land (the front area) that will be auctioned off soon. "What we are trying to do is groom it to attract businesses," he said. The land is slated light industrial. The project worked out well for Reuser, who happened to have a high spot on his property, and the LP property had a low spot. "It gave me a place to put my dirt." Reuser said he plans on surfac- ing his portion with rock and as- phalt, and LP's section will remain dirt. He hopes to asphalt his por- tion Oct. 13, and complete the project by Oct. 20, weather per- mitring. 55 Alive/Mature Driving Class set for October 16-23 AARP-55 Alive/Mature Driv- ing Class is scheduled at the Clo- verdale Senior Multi-Purpose Center Oct. 16-23rd.

The American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) offers the 55-ALIVE Class for only $8. The class consists of two four-hour sessions on two different days.

The Cloverdale Unified School District is embarking on a prom- ising, exciting venture: the cre- ation of a 5-year plan that will guide the District on how to use its talents and resources to pro- vide students the best possible education. At this time the District is seek- ing community members to join with staff and parents to work on this plan. Of course, in the end we will be measured by how well our students do after high school grad- uation. We expect them to be successful, productive individu- als and valuable members of their community. We often hear how well stu- dents do in other countries, par- ticularly Germany and Japan. Thus, maybe that should be our goal -to set up similar systems. One interesting note: students in those countries, as well as 11 oth- er nations in the European eco- nomic community, have 240-day school years. In the U.S. it is slightly under 180 days. In other words, our high school graduates go to school an equiva- lent of four fewer years than these other students. The California legislature has been debating for months now the possibility of adding one (1) more day to the school calendar. So, the calendar aside, how can we compare ourselves to other countries? It may surprise many that Germany, Japan and the U.S. have the same percent, 30%, of students going on to colleges and universities. The fact is, our curricular and educational priorities are mostly geared to the college-bound, ac- cording to Hedrick Smith's re- search in Rethinking America. It is what happens to those other 70% that has created the gap between this country and other leading nations. In the U.S. there is little opportunity for students to ac- quire relevant, professional-level qualifications for occupations af- ter high school. There are two ironies here. First, it is the American way to leave it to the individual student and fam- ily to find a path in life; there is great resistance on the part of many parents when anyone sug- gests that their 14 or 15-year old should have some strong career direction. Second, many students do take jobs while in school - over half of all sophomores, juniors and se- niors. However, wrapping tacos instead of studying is a poor sub- stitute for true job-training. Fur- ther, according to Laurence Steinberg of Temple University, students who work more than 10 hours a week during the school year suffer academically. The goal for most of these youngsters is not a career, it is a car or gas money. In contrast, Germany sees each teen's skills as a social asset to be developed for the common good. In that country 500,000 compa- nies work with the education sys- tem with job apprenticeships in over 400 vocations. Mercedes- Benz thinks nothing of investing thousands of dollars in a teen with no aspirations for college. In Ja- pan schedules are set up so that high school teachers often spend at least half the day counseling with students and working with potential employers to match skills and Interests. A few states, including Oregon, recognize this problem and have created dual systems or tracks that usually occur mid-way through high school. The goal is to make school meaningful for students not only heading to col- lege but directly into the work force. Santa Rosa City Schools recent- ly implored local businesses, when hiring their students, to look close- ly at grades and attendance. This may seem a small gesture, but many companies weren't doing so and, as a result, many students weren't getting the connection between doing well in school and finding employment. In Cloverdale, despite its dis- tance from major employers, there are some exciting things at the high school. The HERO program allows to develop skills plicable in job situations el to conventions and com to use these skills. The at the high school also valuable skill-building; from that program have to positions in other fields as well.
