Program picks kids from Stewardais sunsets ts get itishonaid’s with atticer By Zoe Strickland Reveille Editor zoe@sonomawest.com The Cloverdale Police Department is partnering with the school district to help get kids comfortable with being around cops. The newly adopted Lunch with a Cop program takes two students from both Jefferson Elementary School and Washington Middle School and lets them spend a lunch break at McDonald’s with members of the Cloverdale Police Department. The first Lunch with a Cop took place in mid-November and gave two fourth graders, Lily Farrer and Oscar Cibrian, the opportunity to have their questions about cops answered while chowing down on a Happy Meal. “It’s community engagement,” Officer Carlos Nunez said. “We want to be part of this community. We want to work in conjunction with the schools. We want to have an open door to where if there are any problems, they can communicate with us. We want to be a positive presence.” Nunez has served as the liaison between the police department and the middle and elementary schools to help get the program up and running. He also joined Chief Jason Ferguson for the first lunch. Nunez said that each school site chooses its own pair of kids to participate in the lunch and from there (once permission slips are signed and parental OK is given), they set up a day that works best for both parties. CPAC announces 2020 theater lineup By Zoé Strickland Reveille Editor zoe@sonomawest.com The Cloverdale Performing Arts Center (CPAC) announced its 2020 theater lineup on Sunday, Nov. 24. The lineup includes five plays that offer a range of subject matter. The lineup includes “Talley’s Folly,” “Crimes of the Heart,” “Funny Money,” “The Beard of Avon” and “The Somewhat True Tale of Robin Hood.” Each play opens on a Saturday and runs on Saturdays and Sundays for three weeks after opening night. The season begins in March with “Talley’s Folly.” The play begins on Saturday, March 7. According to information provided by CPAC, the romantic drama catalogues the meeting of a Protestant woman and a Jewish accountant who is “determined to woo her.” The play highlights humor and the “humanizing power of love.” It won a Pulitzer Prize in 1980. On May 2, “Crimes of the Heart” v is coming to the Cloverdale stage. With the same plot as its 1986 silver screen counterpart, “Crimes of the Z] Heart” follows three sisters as they reunite to spend time with their family patriarch. “This play is tough, tender and eccentric — like its characters — and worthy of our attention,” reads CPAC’s description. “Funny Money” opens on July 18 and tracks an accountant whose life is flipped upside down when he accidentally picks up a briefcase full of money. “Funny Money” is billed as a British farce that takes full advantage of British-style comedy. On Sept. 26, “The Beard of Avon” opens at CPAC. The tribute to William Shakespeare follows “Will Shakspere” as he flees his country life, wife and chores in pursuit of becoming a poet and playwright. For its winter play, CPAC will be performing “The Somewhat True Tale of Robin Hood” beginning on Dec. 5. This family-friendly play asks viewers to follow the exploits of Robin Hood and his Merry Men in Sherwood Forest.

V “We pick them up, we let them check out the cars, sit in the driver’s seat, passenger seat, ask us a gazillion questions We take them to McDonald’s. They order whatever they want. We sit down and have an ordinary lunch,” he said. Farrer and Cibrian, both 9 years old, said that the best part of the lunch was getting to ride in the police car. “I was curious about the car,” Farrer said. “I had never been in a cop car before. It was fun there were like plastic hard seats and the front seats were like normal car seats.” Cibrian said that he was confused when they rolled down the back windows of the car and there were See Lunch Page The laws and ordinances surrounding dog bites are complex and multi- pronged By Heather Bailey Staff Writer heather@sonomawest.com In Sonoma County, when a dog bites someone, it kicks off a tw0— pronged legal process that exists at a complicated nexus of state law, county ordinance and local jurisdiction. The first prong has to do with rabies control and ensuring the deadly disease, familiar to anyone who read Old Yeller as a kid, doesn’t spread. The second prong has to do with determining if the incident of the bite should trigger the legal process for getting a dog deemed either “potentially dangerous” or “vicious.” When it comes to rabies control, state law mandates that any animal that bites and breaks the skin undergo a 10-day quarantine in isolation. “Regardless of where it took place, how it happened and/ or if the dog is vaccinated, it doesn’t matter. State law says we have to do a 10- day observation period on the dog,” said Kevin. Davis, .Field. Supervisor, , for Sonoma County Animal Services. “Depending on where it occurs and how it happens, we’ll ' make a decision here with our oflicers whether to do a home quarantine; meaning we go out, we meet with the owners, we check their confinement, the vaccines and all that and as long as they have good confinement there we will allow them to do the quarantine there at their house for the 10 days. After the 10 days we go back out verify the dog is healthy and take the dog ofi" quarantine at that time.” However, Davis said, if the owner is not able to properly quarantine an animal at home, as evidenced by the animal being at large at the time of the bite, or the owner living in an apartment or condo without a yard that would require the animal be walked in order to relieve itself or the owner is homeless, the animal will spend its 10-day quarantine at the shelter at animal services. “Depending on the circumstance, most of the time its just a 10-day quarantine, because rabies vaccine is not 100% effective, mostly based on the handling of the vaccine,” Davis said. “It could be in a vet’s office where the vaccine heats up or gets too chilled, and it can lose efficacy.” SCAS serves unincorporated Sonoma County, the city of Santa Rosa and the Town of Windsor, however rabies issues are the one area where it has jurisdiction over the entire county. “We cannot, by law, go into other jurisdictions except for rabies control. Our department is the designated rabies control for the entire county,” Davis said. “Ifa bite happens in Cloverdale, which has a contract with Petaluma Animal Services, we are going to do the quarantine only. We’re not going to do the follow-up in terms of a potentially dangerous or vicious designation; the legal case part falls back on the local agency to enforce whatever they are going to enforce. If we went up to Cloverdale and we determined the dog won’t be quarantined at home, it will have to go to the Petaluma Animal Shelter. We do the rabies part and deem where it goes (for the quarantine period). Once quarantine is up its up to them whether release animal or not.” The only dog bite cases exempt from the 10-day quarantine are police dogs who bite in the line of duty. Dangerous or Vicious Parallel to but separate from the rabies control process is the process to determine whether a dog should be deemed either “potentially dangerous” or “vicious.” These two terms have specific legal ramifications.
