PAGE 4- WEDNESDAY, OCT. 13, 2010 CLOVERDALE REVEILLE * CLOVERDALE, CALIFORNIA Writer is looking for answers Editor: I would love to be supportive and help the school district. But I try very hard to be an informed voter and I have several questions regarding Measure G that need answers, answers I have so far not been able to find. Perhaps somebody can help. Apparently a bond measure was passed by the voters in 1999, a bond measure we are still paying for through our property taxes. Measure G, as I understand it, will extend that existing bond and may generate $17 million..That money can only be used for upkeep and improvement of structures and such and not for teacher salaries. But can it be used for administrative cost? How precisely will this money be spent and what will it accomplish? How were the 1999 funds spent? The literature mentioned a master plan. Is there a master plan? Was it adhered to? In spite of the 1999-2009 bond measure funds I think I understand that the district has been deficit spending for several years. How will Measure G, if passed, help that situation? The literature states that an oversight committee will be selected. Was there (or is there) an oversight committee for the 1999 bond? If so how were these people selected and what powers do they have? If not, what is the difference between then and now? I agreed that the district is in dire straits, but what will Measure G do to fix those very current problems? Kirsten Sullivan, Cloverdale More on Measure Q Editor: The Urban Growth Boundary as depicted in Measure Q is very well designed and very deceptive. Rains Creek, the Western Hills and even the Industrial Area provide Cloverdale with something in exchange for what they receive. In examining the map, for all intents and purposes, the Airport and the IEA are contiguous. The distance between the upper half of the IEA and the Airport is 500-700 feet - two football fields - nothing in the scheme of things. There is about 1/2 mile between the end of the IEA and the Asti Exception Area. The AEA, which only includes facilities belonging to roster&apos;s Wine Estates, an Australian corporation, is located on a piece of land, identified as Parcel 5. That parcel actually extends from Washington School Road known as the summer bridge road north to the IEA. (The house on the corner of Washington School Road, the Catholic Church and the church's parking lot are separate parcels.) This means that although these two exception areas appear to be sepa- rate, in reality, they are adjacent due to the contiguous nature of parcel 5. 300 words. Aphe I umb hujd  includ/b:diiati:  1 n0t be published' Unsigned I For those of you who thought that LAFCO would definitely turn down a request to extend Cloverdale's sphere of influence south to Asti, think again. Based on this juxtaposition, a smart salesperson could easily make an argument convincing the LAFCO Board to extend Cloverdale's sphere of influence. Annexation would be close behind. The County would then settle the Urban Service Area Boundary to include the exception areas and Cloverdale would be bound to provide services whether we want to or not. Don't be fooled by appearances. We need an Urban Growth Boundary - just not this one. Reece Foxen, Cloverdale Land Use Coalition What happened to our Boys and Girls Club? Editor: What happened to our Boys and Girls Club of Cloverdale? It's now called Central Sonoma County. Many things have changed besides the name and I think what is happening is wrong. The Club was a place teens could go in this town. Now it's just one less productive thing teens can do in Cloverdale. Many teens did their community service hours (a requirement at both Cloverdale High School and JEH High School) at the Boys and Girls Club. Now students cannot volunteer their help at the club unless they are a paid member. When I went to the Club, I met a little girl. I ran into her a while back and asked her if she was still going to the Club. She told me that she couldn't go there anymore because the cost was too high. Where are kids going now that they don't have a place to go because of money? It's called the streets to go have fun doing whatever they can. I am just one person who is really upset about the change. A change that I don't see is a good one. Brian Alonso, Former Teen Club participant and youth volunteer Everything starts in Cloverdale Editor: It is all about "How You Say It" and If you can say it with conviction. As I spend time around Cloverdale I hear people talking about how the SMART train will end in Cloverdale and how we are the last stop in Sonoma County and the Alexander Valley, well for some this might be true. However, I am adopting-a new tagline for Cloverdale: Everything Starts Here! I must say that the SMART Train will START in Cloverdale for those on their way south and as I sit and have a wonderful meal at the Hamburger Ranch, I see plenty of cars heading into town "from the north." For these tourists, Cloverdale is the beginning of Sonoma County and the Wine Country of Alexander Valley. So let's be sure that our wine glasses are half full these days and remember that: Everything STARTS in Cloverdale.

The beloved matriarch was the last of the second generation of the Seghesio wine family; her entire life was dedicated to family, farming and the wine business. Rachel Ann was aided in life by her faith, rich friendships and the love of reading, gardening and travel. Rachel Ann was born in Healdsburg on Feb. 28% 1930 to Emil and Camille Passalacqua who instilled in her a strong Catholic faith, a love of farming and an appreciation for i learning. Her early childhood was deeply influenced by grapes and wine. Growing up on the Passalac- qua Ranch was magical for Rachel Ann; her childhood was marked by the seasons and the beauty, richness and humility of each harvest. Ever a dutiful daughter and sister, she and her siblings helped their father on the ranch, harvesting prunes, pears and grapes. Her wine roots are traced to Oliveto Winery in Healdsburg (pur- chased by her grandmother Rachele Passalacqua in 1934) where her fa- ther was the winemaker. After graduating from Healdsburg High School, she attended San Fran- cisco College for Women (Lone Mountain) and received her B.A. Re- turning homG she taught first and second grade in Sonoma County Schools for five years during which time she met her future husband Eugene Peter Seghesio. Upon their marriage in 1956, she moved to the Home Ranch at Chianti, CA becoming active and devoted to the Seghesio family wine business. She was preceded in death by her husband Eugene Peter Seghesio and is survived by her beloved family, son Peter Seghesio, daughter Amy Camille Seghesio, daughter-in-law Cathy Clements Seghesio, grandsons Joseph and William Seghesio, brother Fred Passalacqua (Donna), sister Jeanne Passalacqua and numerous nieces and nephews. A rosary vigil was held at Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Catholic Church in Asti Monday, Oct. 11. Funeral mass was held at St. John's Catholic Church in Healdsburg on Tuesday Oct. 12. Memorial donations in Rachel Ann's name may be made to St. John's School. Funeral arrangements are being handled by Fred Young Funeral Home in Cloverdale 894-2540. Vote YES On Measure Q 121 E.

MEASURE Q WILL: Preserve the Western Hillside Prevent sprawl to the South Promote economic development MEASURE Q IS ENDORSED BY: The Greenbelt Alliance Sonoma County Democratic Party City of Cloverdale League of Women Voters By adopting this UGB, residents will protect the community's rural characfer and our surrounding hills from sprawl. The benefit to the southern exception . area approach is that it concentrates necessary development in two specific areas and better preserves the land between the exception areas and the land surrounding it. The County General Plan, allows for 1 house per 10 acres or 1 house per 20 acres depending on the area. In the City General Plan/UGB those areas are designated as Conservation, which allows up to 1 house per 160 acres.
