Page 4, Cloverdale Reveille, December 17, 1997 Drunk driving preventable Editor: A lot of mistakes in life are excusable. Drunk driving isn&apos;t one of them It's not a joke, not a social blunder, not a minor violation of the law that "everyone does." It's a serious crime; one that killed more than 1250 Californians last year, becoming a topic covered regularly in the news. In light of the recent attention being focused on teen driving, with the passage of the graduated licensing legislation, it is important to point out that teenagers are unfortunately in a high risk group when it comes to impaired driving. Inexperience and alcohol make a deadly combination behind the wheel of a car - a combination that killed more than 100 teens last year and injured 4054. December is Drunk and Drugged Driving (3-D) Prevention Month and during this year's holiday season the Office of Traffic Safety encourages parents to talk to their teens about the dangers and consequences of drunk driving and for motorists to drive responsibly. Drunk driving crashes are preventable. But only together can we make our roadways safe. Arthur L. Anderson, Director, California Office of Traffic Safety Build a Multi-age not just a Senior Center Editor: Instead of a Senior Center, a Multi-Age Center should be buiIL Health, entertainment and life enrichment activities are an ongoing concern for everybody, and these should be pursued all life long. By the time one is a Senior it is a little late to start the process: A Multi- age Center would serve multiple purposes and help to create an integrated community and solve multiple social problems. Under one structural establishment many diverse programs could be operating: child care for working parents; parenting education; counseling for all ages; social and entertainment activities for all ages; nutritional services for all ages, etc. I don't want my tax dollars serving one vested interest group. By the time one is a Senior it is a little late to try and teach an old dog new tricks. He needs his training earlier in life. Seniors need to be integrated into the community, not isolated. They need to share their knowledge with the young. Being a Senior is no big deal and doesn't warrant any special consideration Gloria Weldon, A Senior Citizen Quali Service & Lower Costs "Over 60 homes available.

As the holidays approach, contributions are being solkited from county residents by unknown charities that purportedly "help needy veterans." To assist potential donors in determining the validity of solicitations, the United Veterans Council contacted the California Attorney Gener- al's office and was provided the following guidelines. It is extremely difficult for the average citizen to differentiate be- tween legitimate and fraudulent or misleading charitable solicitations. The prospective donor is usually told that the solicitor is working for some specific cause that urgently needs money. The donor is rarely given the important details: Is the solicitor a volunteer for a tax-exempt charity, or is he or she being paid by a comemrcial fund-raiser to solicit? Is there an identifiable tax-exempt charity that will receive the money? 8 does the charity have written financial information on its programs available for prospective donors to review prior to giving? If the solicitor works for a commercial fund-raiser registered with the attorney general what is the track record of the fundraiser, i.e., how much of the money previously collected by the fundraiser was given to charity? Smart donors know that it is wise to ask these questions about a solicitation on behalf of veterans. The Sonoma County Veterans Service Office can assist you at 528-5960. Larry Meaney, Chairman Sonoma County United Veterans Council Petaluma Misfortune visits/oca/resident Editor: Just another loving Christmas Message. Someone stole over $3000 worth of tools from his job, his bread and butter. He was down and they kicked him. again, hard! His truck transmission is out. It is in the garage. Someone stole his bike outofhis yard. He hasn't yet recovered from last Christmas time when he was bilked out of a great deal of money by an employer. Just before Thanksgiving someone poisoned his dog. Give the poor guy a break. He has helped a 10t of people and has alwas been generous and trusting. Whoever stole the tools, please return them.
