"fly-out" to Auburn The Cloverdale Pilots Associa- tion (CPA) recently enjoyed anoti~ er "fly-out" breakfast. The group Of local pilots set out, planning to meet up in Redding for a Saturday morn- ing stop for brunch, however the weather didn't cooperate. The re- ported weather and visibility at Redding was degrading quickly, and it was clear that this was no longer a viable destination. After an in-flight re-evaluation of op- tions, it was decided that the group would divert to Auburn. Auburn Airport offered up a great alterna- tive at the restaurant called "Wings" which is located right on the field. The remainder of the trip to Auburn included some turba- lence and gusty crosswinds, which only added to the experience and to the challenge of these experienced pilots. At Wings, the crews feastOd on great food including omelets and dell style sandwiches. The pi- lots reported that the return trip to Cloverdale was uneventful and just as enjoyable. The CPA has regular "fly-outs" as a way for these pilots to get to- gether and explore other destm~i- tions in Northern California. However, they'll have to take a break here in the early fall. The city Members of the Cloverdale Pilots Association, from left to right Michael Morrissey, MarkTuma, Alan Bartleson, Eric Peterson, Ed Dalbec, Clayco and Lynn Small. of Cloverdale has secured Federal funds to make improvements to Cloverdale's airport and construc- tion is scheduled to take place in November timeframe at which time the airport will be closed.

Tough choices faced the Alex- ander Valley Regional Medical Center board on learning earlier this month that money to treat low- income, uninsured patients was eliminated in the latest State of Cal- ifornia budget. As recently as the 2003/2004 fis- cal year, AVRMC received state grants of $105,000 to cover the cost of treating low income residents with no insurance. The funding dropped to $65,500 in 2008/2009 and $20,000 last year. Within the last year, 590 visits have been eligible for the medical center's sliding scale program which allows below cost treatment based on ability to pay. "In past years, the state made up much of the difference," said Jenine Rose- Saunders, chief financial officer. "If we continue treating uninsured and underinsured at this pace, we will be short about $45,000," she said. "As a federally-designated Rural Health Center, AVRMC is not re- quired to treat everyone like the hospitals are," explained Deborah Howell, executive director. "And AVRMC is not a 'free clinic,' we are supported by the fees paid by pa- tients or their insurance company or some combination," she added. With the image of a young moth- er and two sick children riding the bus to Healdsburg, then walking five blocks in the rain to the hospi- tal, the board voted unanimously to continue treating Cloverdale and Geyserville area residents so long as the patient contributes a minimal amount to their care. "Many of these patients are friends and neighbors who recently lost their jobs, health insurance and are in danger of losing their homes as the impact of the recession rum- bles through the community," said Mark Thayer, AVRMC's chair. "With close attention to detail, belt- tightening and the spirit that fund- ed a new ambulance, I'm confident we can take on this additional bur- den for the coming year," he add- ed. There are two ways to support the medical center. First, if you, a friend, neighbor or new resident is looking for a medical home; tell them about the great staff at AVRMC. Second, is to make a tax- deductible donation. AVRMC is a non-profit 501c3 corporation. "As it stands now, AVRMC re- ceives no state or federal funding and does not have taxing authority like the hospital or the ambulance," Howell said.
