PAGE 4 --WEDNESDAY, DEC. 17, 2008 CLOVERDALE REVEILLE CLOVERDALE, CALIFORNIA ;iii i:i i! ;::i All the kind words are appreciated Editor: Last night, the City Council presented me with a proclamation of appre- ciation (with lots of "whereases"!!) for the years that I have served as a Member and Chair of the Cloverdale Planning Commission. I sincerely appreciate that proclamation and the kind words! We often read about the angry divisions and conflicts among people in the neighborhoods, on the City Councils and Commissions elsewhere. My exper!ence is that here, even when we view the details differently, we do respect each other. Generally, in Cloverdale there is a shared positive vision. For me, working together with a fine group of diligent fellow Planning Commissioners has been such a positive experience. I believe that the residents of Cloverdale are fortunate to have (in alphabetical order) Larry Asien, Susan Bennett, Bob Cox, Mike Shanahan and Vice Chair Dave Ziegenhagen on the Commission. Each shows up for every meeting well- prepared and ready to listen and think hard, with Cloverdale's best future in mind. I really appreciate Bruce Kibby and Jill Garibaldi, the staff with whom I have worked most closely at the City. Both are very skilled and knowl- edgeable about pertinent technical matters, helping to keep the Commis- sion on track. Planning Commissions are appointed to make difficult decisions, in public meetings, with the public present. Many hundreds of individuals have come to those meetings during my time there, shared their ideas, opinions, and wisdom, helping us make better decisions. I appreciate all those persons who cared enough to speak up, voicing their opinions, support, and critiques of aspects of development applications. I hope that most felt that their voices were heard and respected. Finally, I am grateful for the City Council's trust and support of the Commission. After appointing Commissioners, Council lets the Commis- sion do the job, while keeping well informed. It is good to see a system work well, and I am pleased to have been of some service! Bob Jordan, Cloverdale Reveille article was unbiased Editor: I was pleased to see your article regarding Charlotte and Mike Mc- Manus. It presented another and far more unbiased view than the piece that ran in the Press Democrat. Following the appearance of that article, I wrote the PDin an effort to address some of the points that I felt were unfair. To date, I have not received any acknowledgement or response from the Santa Rosa newspa- per. Freya Richardson, Cloverdale 121 E.

Rancheria comes out with neon lights Editor: The Cloverdale Rancheria comes out with neon lights blaring! The' proposed 596,000 square foot casino facility will be more than three times larger than any existing Las Vegas casino. With almost 1,000 restaurant seats, a 244-room hotel, 984-seat convention center and 1,300-seat enter- tainment center, Cloverdale can expect to experience the negative impact 24/7 - how many stories will the building(s) be? I find it ironic the Rancheria professed a sensitivity to the town's issues, yet with this proposal it appears they have become a pawn of Nevada gaming interests where bigger is better and damn the neighbors' com- plaints. What will happen to the local motels/hotels and restaurants if this is allowed to be built? The project is totally out of scale for the community and is an environmental catastrophe. Voters granted the tribes the right to build casinos, and everyone has the right to make a decent living, but not at the expense of sacrificing vibrant communities. Cities have won the fight against big box stQres; those that didn't are now suffering the'economic consequences whereby one entity drains the economic livelihood out of the other. Martin Shenk'~jCloverdale Somebody must hate redwood trees Editor: Somebody must hate redwoods, there are 33 beautiful eight inch red- woods missing on South Foothill Blvd. and now our wonderful slogan "Where the Vineyards Meet the Redwoods" has been eliminated for some- where around $60,000 price tag. Do we now eliminate the vineyards? Hey folks, we are now Genuinely Cloverdale? Whatever that means? What was that again?

Vivian is survived by her husband of 64 years, Albert. Vivian is also survived by their three sons, Wayne (Janis), Lynn, and Lee (Dawn) and grandchildren, Joe, Christina and Jen- nifer. Albert and Vivian were married on Jan. 17, 1944. They moved from Fort Bragg, Ca to Cloverdale in 1962. They purchased Cloverdale Auto Parts in 1975, and still own it today. Vivian wrote a column called "Thoughts and Things" for the Clo- verdale Reveille for many years. She was an activity director for Manzanita Manor for eight years. She participated in Toastmas- ters and won several awards for her poet- ry and writings. Until just recently she was writing columns for the "Upbeat Times." Vivian loved music, writing music, writ- ing poetry and stories and most of all she loved the animals. She was grandma to every child she met and friend to all. She always had a smile for everyone she met, and a friendly story to brighten your day. Vivian will be forever missed and always in our hearts.

He died Nov. 14, 2008, one day before his 70th birthday. The story of David's life is filled with adventure, travel and out of the ordinary experiences. Every- thing David did in his life, whether helping workers in Guatemala file for worker's compensation or living in Cloverdale, tak- ing housebound seniors to appointments, shopping or on outings was driven by gen- erosity and passion for helping people. He simply enjoyed living and making life bet- ter for those around him, friend or stranger. A graduate of the Wharton School of Business, David quickly learned the value of his life had nothing to do with status or consumption, but had everything to do with making the world a better place, per- son to person. David was a pioneer in the early days of the radical psychiatry move- ment, which was aimed at disseminating psychology skills to lay people so that they could help others. David's eye for beauty came in different forms. He dressed with color and style. He arranged beautiful bouquets of flowers and he always had a pocketful of warm, witty or wise statements that he gathered to share with his friends at just the right moment. David is survived by his sister, Janet Gross of Connecticut, his fiance' Marta Moro of Cloverdale and countless friends who remember him with joy. A memorial service will be announced. - C LO V E R D A LE - and pencil and ink drawings. ~ There are also. two display; cases :: .......... .......... ................ ................ 22' " ' ........................................................ : ..... | At Empire Mini Storage we make featuring,,......... student art at the~,high / : hOP ..............
