PAGE 4 -- WEDNESDAY, DEC. 2, 2009 e CLOVERDALE REVEILLE CLOVERDALE, CALIFORNIA Stay the course and plan wisely Editor: I was a member of the Citizens Advisory Committee to the General Plan. We met for 18 months and discussed various aspects of City Planning. An overall concern was preserving the character and appearance of Clover- dale. We were all appalled by entrances to other cities that are often dominated by ugly car lots and strip malls and felt Cloverdale was unique in that our approaches were pleasant and attractive. We felt the initial image one gets of a city influences the number of visitors and businesses that would like to come here. We made a strong recommendation that maintaining a pleasant entrance to the city was essential for long term growth and the overall quality of Cloverdale. We were especially concerned that the southern edge of the city was not turned into strip malls and car lots. This was a few years back and since then we've seen an economic depression and a loss of downtown business. However, I for one still believe the economic future for the City of Clover- dale lays in maintaining our unique beauty and character. If we stay the course, and plan wisely .we will benefit from an eventual upturn in the nation's economy. Despite the short term potential of sales tax revenues, I believe allowing the first impression of Cloverdale to be a used car lot can do more harm than good to our long term future and long term tax revenues. I urge the planning commission and the City Council to reject this application. Steve Nurse, Cloverdale A better way to welcome new businesses Editor: I just attended a meeting of the Cloverdale Economic Development Task Force of which I have been a member since its latest incarnation in June. Over the past several months, much of our meeting time has been spent listening to anecdotal reports and discussing available options to expedite the process of bringing new business to Cloverdale. Until this evening, this has been pretty much an academic/philosophi- cal endeavor. What made this meeting different was a presentation of the proposed "Cloverdale Motors" car lot at 1215 S. Cloverdale Blvd. The hoops and road blocks that have been presented to Mr. Nader Safaie make me wonder why he would continue to try to locate in Cloverdale. He is experienced, well qualified, has demonstrated success in automo- tive marketing and is willing to comply with all of the city's design requirements but instead of encouragement and cooperation, he is is 121 E.

He must agree to place utilities underground but the city does not yet have the specifications necessary to determine the eventual cost. One consulting firm says it could be between $60,000 and $175,000. To even start the "official" permitting process and develop the specifications mentioned above, he will be required to post a non-refundable deposit of $5,000 with no guarantee that a permit will be issued or what the final permitting costs will be. I can't help but think that there has to be a better way to welcome prospective businesses. The Cloverdale Chamber of Commerce is sending out hundreds of invitations to businesses askingI them to consider locating in Ctoverdale and while I don't claim to have any knowledge of city planning, I do understand business planning. If the City of Cloverdale wants to attract new businesses and associated tax revenues, we should make this process more collaborative and helpful ahd less adversarial. More like a welcome wagon experience and less like a fraternity hazing that has to be endured to achieve the privilege of doin~ business in Cloverdale. There are those in the community who seek the status quo and refuse to acknowledge that change is ine~ bring about its own brand of, economic environment that wi services its citizens expect and stroy the quality of life they are itable but to prevent sensible growth will "hange. It will bring about a declining [1 leave our city unable to provide the ]eserve. Ultimately this attitude will de- :rying so hard to preserve. A. Nash Kunkle, Cloverdale Grapes .to grain Editor: Cloverdale is located in a ctim~te that easily accomodates self-slas- tainment. We can grow many kinds of ,fruits and vegetables but what about grains and beans? They form a complete protein when eaten to- gether, so they can take the place of meat or dairy if necessary. Mendocino County has a Mendo- cino Grain Project. Local farmers work in a unique collaboration with land owners and vineyards who are making land available to grain.

Happy holidays. - s for better nutrition? a community-supported way of producing grains locally. Members buy a share in the annual planting and receive a portion of the harvest. These shares support the process and members share, with the farm- ers, the risk of poor or failed crops. The farmers prepare the fields, care for the soil, plant and harvest the crops and the distribution. Mem- bers also receive periodic updates, expected harvest time, etc. Cloverdale might also want to re- establish grains as part of the food produced here. We could support local farmers and a local food econ- omy. We could enjoy fresh grains and legumes from organic seeds not those genetically engineered. We would also reduce the "carbon footprint" of grains we eat and we would increase the local control of our food supply which is increas- ingly concentrated in the hands of a few giant corporations. Does this interest any local farm- ers out there or any landowners in- eluding vineyards? For more information please call Mardi at 894-2736.

He was 94 years old, born Sept. 9, 1915, and predeceased by his daughter Sharon in 1949, son Tommy in 1972 (survived by wife Jess Duncan) and wife Opal in 1997. Tomnly and Opal had four children, two of whom live today: Clay E. Duncan (Judy) of La Quinta, CA and Shalia K. Duncan Vanderweken (William) of Cloverdale, CA. Grandchildren are Randy (Jenny) Duncan (great-grandchildren Dako- da, Heather, and Zachary), Chris (Karin) Duncan (great-grandchildren Tyler and Brandi), Jill Dun- can (Alex) Bombino (great-grandchildren Alex- ander and Gabriel), Shawn Fonnest (Michelle) (great grand-child Seth), Kirsty Duncan (great- grandchild Nicholas Raisch), Gregg Duncan and Sharon Duncan (Kurt Workman). Tommy was born in White City, Illinois. After moving to Arkansas, he met and married Opal Crunk on July 27, 1935. Tommy and Opal, their 18-month old son (also Tommy), one-month old son Clay, Opal's parents, two sisters and brothers-in-law, an aunt and an uncle and their two sons, and at least two family friends - 15 in all - crowded into and onto a small Chevy flatbed truck, and eventually reached California in the Spring of 1939 after a 44-day journey! His mechanical and carpentry skills eventually led to his position as Senior Mechanic for the Hollow Tree Lumber Company in Ukiah, but he was forced to retire in 1961 after several injuries. After that, he and Opal owned and ran Shorty's Caf6 in Ukiah for many years. Tommy always said, "If something was worth doing, it was worth doing right!" People also said there was nothing Tommy could not do! Tommy lived his last 12 years with his daughter, Shalia, and son-in-law Dr. William Vanderweken (himself retired) and their several happy little dogs. We note with interest that the dogs knew. As time for Tommy's passing came near, they drew closer and closer to him, hardly leaving his bed. How do they know these things? The family requests no flowers, but prefers donations to a cure for leukemia and/or cancer. He was laid to rest alongside his beloved wife Opal on Saturday, Nov. 21, 2009 at the Healdsburg Oak Mound Cemetery. Duane Lee Angeli Duane Lee Angeli passed away peacefully on Nov. 24, 2009 in Healds- burg. Duane was a native and life long resident of Cloverdale where he enjoyed family, friends and the outdoors. When he wasn't being a husband, father, Nono or friend; he enjoyed fishing, hunting, mushrooming and tinkering. He is survived by his wife Joanne Angeli; daughter Toni (Martin) Vizcaino, son Nick (Jamie) Angeli, father Ernest Angeli, brother Jerry Angeli, sister Sharon Falleri and his cherished grand chil- dren Abbey and Rowan. All who knew him will miss his feisty spirit, hard work, big heart and smile. He will be missed by us all. Friends and family are invited to attend a me- morial service at 10 a.m. on Friday, Dec. 4, at St. Peter's Catholic Church, 491 S. Franklin, Cloverdale. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to Memorial Hospice at 821 Mendocino Avenue, Santa Rosa, Ca. 95401. ~i!{iii~:: kv~,vAv,*~ The Chapel at Rio Undo Academy 3200 Rio Lindo Ave Healdsburg Sundays at lO:OOam 707-431-7856 Verse by Verse Teaching Childrens Church Provided Tb Episcopal Cbur~cb UJelomes You!
