I'm writing to you concerning your front page article Sept. 24 about the meeting Sept. 18 discussing the Hot Springs Road closure. I found your report a bit misleading and incomplete. Firstly, as one who attended this meeting, I don't think it was primarily a meeting of people who opposed the road closure. Our neighbors up the hill may be more vocal, but I wouldn't say that most of the people there were in opposition. Secondly, and more importantly, it wasn't mentioned in the article, as it was at the meeting, that this closure has been part of the Environ mental Impact Report for both the Rosen and Del Webb projects. This is a professional report that concerns our environment, health and safety for the future. The truth is that Hot springs Road is basically a one lane road with trees and private property on both sides of the road that really prohibits widening by any sensible or sensitive plan. And I felt it was unfair that it was said that the City was unconcerned about its condition. I think it is also important to point out that Foothill Blvd., going through the Del Webb project, will be a nice, wide street much safer for everyone than the old access. It is also noteworthy that Foothill Blvd. will not have a lot of driveways coming into it as the new homes will have their backs to this boulevard. Old habits are often hard to change but as one gentleman pointed out, for all the inconvenience, we as a community should be grateful for the Del Webb project which is bringing more prosperity to Clover- dale.

In addition, we collected and distributed blankets and warm clothing to persons in need of such items. This project, spearheaded by the Soroptimist Club of Cloverdale, is dependent on individuals and organizations in our community who are willing to donate their time and money to help their neighbors. We invite you to participate and share in the pleasure of service to others. With your help everyone in Cloverdale can be a little more thankful this year. To volunteer your time, talent, or to make a financial contribution please contact any Soroptimist or call 894-4080 or 894-5825. Thank you. Sydney Sciaini, Soroptimist International Cloverdale's emergency personnel thanked Editor: To everyone who assisted me after my accident--construction workers, police, fire, ambulance crew, emergency room, city" employ- ees and all the others-thank you more than words can express. I had never been in an accident or emergency room, so I did not know first- hand just how excellent our emergency services are. I was impressed! Once again our community proved just how competent, kind and compassionate we are in an emergency. I'm well on my way to recovery now, and can only say, "Thanks again for everything, Cloverdale--you will always be number one with me."

Paying public kept in the dark The Teacher's Association of Cloverdale has filed an unfai practice complaint against the Cloverdale Unified School DistrJ the California Teachers' Association over the District's alleged  to bargain during the 1996-97 school year on the contract that e June 30,1997, according to Co-President Regan Urbanick. The Reveille made an informal request of Superintendent Mik= for a copy of the complaint. Carey, on advice of the Districf counsel, denied the request. Subsequently the Reveille made a formal request for the document under the California Public Act. This newspaper was informed that the denial was based scope of negotiations and potential litigation citing 5496.9. Counsel for the Teacher's Association has also text of the complaint. As a result the public does not really is going on between the District and the Teachers' though the public foots the bill and has a vested interest proceedings. The secrecy that has developed over the years in regard negotiations, especially between public entities and has gone to elaborate lengths, thus resulting in a serious disre the public's right to know what is taking place and how the money is being spenL A certain amount of privacy can be countenanced news black-out that is now permissible indicates the process has gone too far. Negotiations take place each year between city and the public service segments of fire and policing, without paying public any clue of the wage demands being made ability of the government entity to pay. The public is notified agreement is reached and the pay schedule is accepted. This situation raises serious questions. Should negotiations be in such secrecy? Do they" obligations they are about to assume without their knowledge. the demands of the employees involved be kept secret and sac while the paying public is kept in the dark? To what negotiations be made public? In looking back over time, it does on these questions has occurred as all public information in this arena.. Has the time come in address this situation? In the past, the press was always able to re benefits were being placed on the table and what response the  ment entity was making. That era is long gone. Perhaps it is bring it back.BJH 00New exhibit at the CHRISTIAN SCIENCE THE CHRISTIAN SCIENCE SO- CIETy, 424 East Street, Healds- burg, 433-7645. Sunday Church Service 10:30 am.
