Page 8, Cloverdale Reveille, October 22, 1997 News at Noon speakers give optimistic views of Cloverdale Several individuals interested in Cloverdale and its future and who are active in the community, were guest speakers at the month- ly News at Noon meeting hosted by the Chamber of Commerce. Rick Thomas, Chair of the Eco- nomic Development Commis- sion&apos;s PrideCommittee, discussed some of the problems and barri- ers encountered by the commit- tee as it strives to improve the town's more unattractive build- ings and properties. Thomas said he was encour- aged by the City's plan, now un- derway, to strengthen its nui- sance abatement enforcement procedures. Ed Bowen, recently appointed Manager of the Cloverdale branch of Exchange Bank, said that the City is getting a good foundation for local business. He noted that Exchange Bank, in business in Sonoma County for 108 years, is offering a full menu of banking services. He spoke proudly of the Bank's stewardship of the Doyle Scholarship Trust for Santa Rosa Junior College students that has helped 39,000 students over time. In 1996-97 the trust paid out $3,386,380 in scholarship funds. Jeff Weiss, founder of the Clo- verdale Wine and Visitor Cen- ter's Gourmet Club, said that this was an exciting time to be in Clo- verdale. The Wine Center is pro- gressing and the Gourmet Club is designed to involve the commu- nity in a venue that will provide fun and entertainment. The Club plans interesting monthly pro- grams .that have something for everyone. He said he hoped to attract new members. Monthly dues of $7.50 go to the Center. John Doble, a director of the Wine Center, reported that monthly members dues of $20 will go to- ward retiring the mortgage on the building. He said that the Center would like to find ways to give members their money's worth and welcomed new ideas. "I hope to receive helpful suggestions from the members regarding this goal," Doble said. Chamber President Will Jopson, owner of Ace Hardware, noted that attendance at Chamber dinner meetings was growing. He remind- ed the audience of the Chamber sponsored Octoberfest Oct. 29 which will feature sausage and beer making demonstrations prior to the dinner and program. A seminar on sales and market- ing will be a chamber sponsored event Nov., 13 with a full day of workshops. Marketng will be fea- tured in the morning and after- noon workshops will be aimed at retailers and employees. The Chamber is developing a new street map of Cloverdale. At- torney Jim DeMartini continues to work with the PUC to get reduced long distance phone rates for Clo- verdale to nearby communities. Jopson noted that other towns, such as Healdsburg do not pay a A A A A Ken Bell works at the front desk of The Grid Internet provider.

Jopson said the new Furber Shop- ping Center would bring changes to Cloverdale but it was a sign of progress. "We must work for the progress of every part of town," he stressed. Businesses in the core area of town will still be able to attract customers if they provide what people want. "Just because you are there doesn't mean they will come. Business people have to market their business and the Chamber can't do it for them," he pointed out. In closing, Jopson announced that he will move his hardware business into the vacated Clover Market building. His business should be moved there by Febru- ary. He plans extensive renova- tions to thepremises which, he explained, will give him room to expand his inventory. , Give teeth friendly treats this Halloween Before you drop a bag of "gum- my ghosts" into a goblin's Hal- loween sack, think about the scary things that, candy can do to the trick-or-treater's teeth. An esti- mated 80 percent of all American households will be giving out can- dy and other cavity causing good- ies this Halloween. According to the California Dental AssQciation (CDA), sticky and sugary foods like gummy can- dies, fruit roll-up snacks and even raisins may lodge between teeth or stick to the teeth longer, which can encourage tooth decay. To help parents and their chil- dren avoid the woes of tooth de- cay, CDA recommends the following tooth-healthy treats: -Cheese and crackers, available in individual packs. Cheddar cheese has been shown to reduce the amount of bacteria and sugar in the mouth. --Sugarless chewing gums or candies. -Non-food items like pencils, stickers, trading cards or a tooth- brush. Additional foods to avoid hand- ing out this Halloween include lollipops and hard candy and even natural foods like granola bars that can lodge between teeth, stick to the surface longer and promote tooth decay. According to the CDA, it's not the amount of sugar in candy that can cause decay, but the amount of time the candy stays in the mouth. And, of course, remind trick- or-treaters to brush and floss as soon as possible after eating. i,, The St. Peter's Altar Society will hold its annual Fall Rummage Sale Oct. 25, 27, and 28.
