Jessie was 22 years old and married only two weeks. Jessie was killed in the 100th fatal traffic collision so far this year in Sonoma County, a higher total than anyother full year and we still have almost two months to go. Somehow people feel traffic fatalities, traffic collisions and traffic injuries are just one of those things that happen. Not so, says Captain John McLarty of the CHP. Collisions don't just happen, they are caused. We hear, "Someone ought to do something about accidents." Someone can -- you, you the drivers. Drinking drivers are involved in almost three quarters of these collisions. The Highway Patrol is taking them off the road as often as they can with over 1,000 arrests this year so far. But it's not enough. They can only put so many-officers out there and they cannot be everywhere. They need help and so do the people of this country. *That is I II where thq help must come from, The Drinking Public. Don't drink and dr, ive, watch out for people that do. Safe drinking just doesn't happen, it takes some effort, it requires that drivers pay attention to their driving and not become distracted. Captain McLarty said that the CHP investigated a fatal collision a few days ago. Two witnesses, one a driver and one a pedestrian,j, said ,that from the way the car was being driven, it was sure to crash. It did, killing a passenger. Going too fast for conditions, the type of road for weather and traffic conditions is the number two cause of traffic collisions. Watch that speed! With the winter months ahead, it takes even more care to be a safe and accident free driver. Help us, Captain McLarty asks, we need the Ielp, but more importantly, you, the driving public, needs help, help to stay alive and safe on our roadways.

Also, there will be a discussion of what other commodity groupe have.heen hie to do to stabilize and improve their market and improve price. Robert A.

Sonoma County Farm Advisor, Robert Sisaon said, "I feel this meeting is particularly important in that the growers of grapes for crushing have the + biggest investment in the future of the California wine industry."

OOOR - s.,'s ( 7'Y By BARBARA PEUGH City Clerk Want a fun project for the whole family? My husband Tom and I have had the best time writing up a family biography for publication in the Cloverdale History Book! What's the Cloverdale History Book? The Cloverdale Historical Society has contacted the well-known firm, National Community History Society, to help compile a local history of families and businesses to go into a hound book that will go on sale to interested people sometime in 1981. You don't have to be of pioneer stock to participate; after all, how many of us are of original settler families here? Not many dusl that's for sure. But we all have a stock in Cloverdale. We've put our minds and bodies into action for the town, we've raised kids here, done business here, helped in community efforts here, cried a few tears here, cheered on the local teams, had a few victories here, I could go on and on. Some of us will stay forever, maybe even being buried in the old historical cemetery on the hiU - some of us might move away in a few years. But while we are here, we are a part of a viable, living, breathing community. And what a community? We have accomplished so much for a litUe town - we have been designated the "Town of Volunteers," we've entertainea politicians, sent a band to Vienna. 'helped people in need, started an ambulance service, have a terrific Volunteer Fire Department (one of the best in the state, I think), taken a con- valescent hospital to our. hearts, sent talented musicians out into the world - the list is so long it would be too much to list in this article. I myself, would hate to think ,that we shouldn't be a participant in this fun, exciting project. We sat down and figured out how general of a description (history) we wanted. Deciding we didn't want something dry, with a )ong list of dates and names in the line of personal begats. We decided to go the general Story form, liting where original family settlers immigrated from on his side and on my side. Then we picked up facts about the personal histories in our families which is back further in my husband's family than in mine. We sketched how the families from back east came to the West Coast and where they spread to, en- ding up with us here in Cloverdale. How about your family. biography? How about having your's published in the upcoming book? I have seen one of the history books done by the company for Sonoma (:ounty headed for all time high in fatal accidents Captain John McLarty of the California Highway Patrol reported today that Sonoma County is headed for Christmas tree needed The City of Cioverdale is sending out a request tor me donation of this year's town Christmas tree. Usually by this time of year several people have offered to donate one, but this year there hawn't been any offers to date. III I I an all time high in fatal traffic collisions this year. As of October 31, 1980, 107 people have died in 94 fatal collisions within the county, The CHP has investigated 75 of these collisions in which 88 people were killed. 'ltS year wUl far surpass the record year 1972 in which there were 99 county-wide fatal collisions. There were a total of 83 in 1979. Our best years in the last ten years were 1974 and 1975, which had 60 each. Captain McLarty said these accidents are scattered throughout the.county with no definite pattern. Of the collisions investigated. 63 percent are one vehicle problem is drinking and driving. Of the fatal ac- cidents, 73 percent involve drinking drivers as compared to a national average of about 50 percent.

The book is done in a lovely, rich brown-colored cover, with beautiful gold stamping for the title. The pages are on very nice paper, and the picture reproduction is very good. Apparently Pat- tonburg is a very small town, yet the book is beautifully done. One af- ternoon i had lunch with the lovely program director, Madison Kane (yes, Madison is a she). We had an interesting exchange of ideas on the project and she is so full of enthusiasm and loves history, small towns and people. It was nice to talk to someone you who is interested in our type of place. She couldn't get over the involvement and drive of the Cloverdale citizens. She thought people moved to small towns to relax and take it easy - to which I replied, not.this little towd - We're movers. SO how about moving with us and adding your family history to the history book. You can get histories from' members of Historical Chamber of Cloverdale the company. remember, from now, history, too!
