It makes you wonder Editor, I guess you could title this letter "It makes you wonder" because I just have to wonder who in the City of Cloverdale manages contracts such as the street sweeping contract. Clearly they need to open their collective eyes and take a look at the service they are paying city tax dollars to contract. In our neighborhood and as I believe everywhere in Cloverdale, the street sweepers show up on Saturdays. Around 8 to 10 a.m. in my part of town, when the streets are full of cars so the sweeper can't possibly do a good job in the gutters. Add to this the fact that the street sweeping machines don't seem to have the "de-dusting" sprays operational and what you get is a huge cloud of dust blowing all over everything (see photo) for your viewing pleasure It seems to me and others I have talked to that street sweeping is best done mid week when folks are at work and the streets are open to clean. Further the contractor should be instructed to use the sprays on the ma- chines. City personnel should monitor the contractor to insure the job is done properly. Failing at this, the city should refund to us the cost of street sweeping services and fire the contractor. Frankly a better job could be done with a broom.

Cloverdale schools thank the community Editor: On behalf of the students and staff at Jefferson Elementary and Wash- ington School, we would like to thank the many individuals, businesses and community clubs and churches who contributed to the "Stock Our Schools" campaign, which contributed over $1,700 in supplies for our teachers and students. Cloverdale Unified, along with school districts across the nation, are having to endure a reduction in financing for education due to the nation's current financial crisis. We are aware that not only are schools struggling with finances but families are, too. The generous support of our commum- ty supplements what we currently can provide and greatly assists us in providing a quality education. It is our hope that our students are able to give back to our community in a similar fashion. Again, thank you. Teresa Johnson, Principal; Jefferson Elementary; Ashley Tatman, Principal; Washington School; Steve Jorgensen, Superintendent Thank you to Cloverdale Healthcare Center Editor: Wanted to give a heartfelt thank you to all who took care of our Mother during her short stay at the facility. All of the nurses, Physical Therapists, Dieticians and Administration were all very kind and caring. Our mother loved her view from her room and really enjoyed the excellent food she was served. God bless you all. She rests in peace Oct. 11, 2012.

Friends of Cloverdale Library meeting The Friends of the Cloverdale Li- brary held their annual general membership meeting at the Librar~ on Saturday, Oct. 20. The Friends support the LibraW with those things that are beyond the library budget. They sponsor all the various programs, adult and children's, that are held. When you enjoy an author visit or musical program, thank the Friends! The special children's programs like magic shows, the holiday ginger- bread house program, and our summer reading program are all thanks to the Friends. And increa'ff- ingly, with budget cutbacks, the Friends are helping to supplement our book budget. You can support the Friends (and the Library!) in several ways. Sim- ply becoming a member helps with your tax deductible membership dues. Becoming an active volunteer is not necessary. Membership ap- plications are always available at the Library. You can also purchase Please notify us of changes to the calendar gently used magazines and paper- backs at the kiosks in the Library or at the annual book sale. If you are interested in volunteer- ing, there are opportunities to par- ticipate on a regular basis. You can note your interest on your member- ship application. There are rota- tions of volunteers who help with the sorting and stocking of donated books and magazines. There are also annual events when there is a need for volunteers, such as serv- Dave Rose Dave Rose a long time Geyserville resident, passed away from a long battle with cancer at the age of 65.

Verna Mae Fairbairn Vema Mae (Leirich) Fairbaim, known as Grandmae to her grandchil- dren, was born in Cation City, Colorado on Feb. 24, 1926 and died in Windsor on Oct. 9, 2012. She married Andrew Fairbairn in 1948. They spent much of their life in California, living first in San Jose, then Lake Almanor and finally moving to Cloverdale. She had a BS in Home Eco- nomics and a Secondary Teaching Credential, and she spent 20 years teaching Home Economics at Wilcox High School in Cupertino, CA. She was of Scottish, Irish, Welsh and Austrian descent and a child of the Great Depression, .... which deeply affected the values she lived by. Verna was always known as a kind and caring indi- vidual. She had a way of being in the world which she taught to her children and grandchildren in a way they never forgot. She was a gifted homemaker, cooking, crafting and knitting with a level of skill that was enviable Verna Mae was known for her delectable Christmas cookies and her fabulous holiday meals. She also enjoyed tennis and bridge, hobbies she shared with her husband of 60 years. She was an active participant in church activities for her whole life, most recently United Church of Cloverdale. In addition, she was a mem- ber of the PEO chapter UQ. A lifelong learner as well as an educator, she valued education greatly. Vema Mae was predeceased by her son, James Andrew Fairbaim in 2010 and her husband Andrew Fairbairn in 2011. The death of her hus- band was particularly difficult, because it marked the first time in her life that she had ever lived alone. She is survived by her daughter, Ann (Stillman), her sons, Thomas and Timothy, as well as eight grandchildren and two great grandchildren. Verna's memorial service will be held on Nov. 24, 2012 at United Church of Cloverdale. It will begin at 10 am, and there will be a reception afterwards.
