This article answered many questions I had thought of over a perlod of time regarding the limitatiem set upon police departmem by state federal laws preventlng them for taking action in veeain eases. The interview should alto stop erroneous rumors which float around town from now and then regar- ling crimes that are not faetmd. 00tiy x moved family to Northern Sonoma County from San Francisco, where a person no longer can walk down the street day or night without fear of his or her life. What a wonderful new freedom we are experiencing now in this presented with their bill, I found it to be quite fair. A number of local residents sympathized with my plight and admired my two white German shepherds. Breakdowns are never pleasant, but the folks in Uloverdale made mine as painless as possible. I'd like to utilize your publication to thank them for their con- cern and consideration, and to wish them,a very happy holiday season Sincerely, Charles L. Erlckson Ft. Bragg, CA Love returned Editor: Many, many people, all over Cloverdale have been observed wearing the little green love wreaths;..han- diwork of Dens Gambetta. Along with each wreath, I feel sure, came a plate of Dena's "Love" cookies. This letter is to let Dena Police Department who did such a fine and prompt job in recovering our personal items that were stolen from our home last week. We went to a local market to shop and upon returning home, we discovered several personal items of value had been taken from our home, by unknown persons. We immediately called The Police Department within a very few hours. Most all of the items had been recovered. Again, thanks to the officers for such a fine job well done. Thank you, Mr. and Mrs. D.

Tip Thomas was a well- known fiddler in Anderson Valley and Cloverdale. Alva Ingram Especially blessed Editor: On Christmas Day,  members of the Baha'i Faith visited the residents of Manzanita Manor, and were deeply moved by the genuine love, tenderness and kindness shown by the staff to the residents. When commenting to one of the administrators about the beautiful spirit displayed, she responded, "This is more than just a hospital. We are like family here." Cloverdale seems to be especially blessed in so many ways, and to me Manzanita Manor stands out as a shining example of By BARBARA PEUGH City Clerk The Rabies Clinic in- formation for January, 1981, has been received. Please note the following date: CLOVERDALE CLINIC, Saturday, January 24, from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m., at the Cloverdale High School Shop Building, on School Street. The shots will cost $2 per shot. If you wish to license your dog at the same time - a city crew will also participate in licensing your 'dog. Make sure you bring your dogs' neuter cer- tificate and old license information. Cost for licenses will run; neutered: $3.75; unneutered $7.50. This is a little later than it is usually set up so I will remind you of the date in a January column. The County of Sonoma now has a Dog Licensing Computer System They have also instituted a License Hotline, 527-2833, i l I i iii i i Ci'y Clerk's Corner i where a person who has a bit problem, etc., might call to see if a problem dog is listed on the computer list. This is a brand new service and is instituted in an at- tempt to cut down on rabies problems. In 1980 at least five people have come in contact with a rabid animal and three domestic animals have been proven rabid. Approximately 50 percent of the skunks tested for rabies have had the disease. For the above reasons it is important to have your animal vaccinated. Have you noticed the bus route signs going up all over town? Right after the holidays we will have the route schedules completed and available for citizens to pick up, free of charge, at City Hall. we have con- tacted a local person to paint the Cloverdale Transit System on the side of our bus, so everyone can spot it easily when it starts run- ning. Did Santa treat you nicely? Hope so, the city staff would sincerely like to wish everyone a prosperous New Year. area where the fine local police department, under the able direction of Police Chief Persons, has kepl it almost crime free, I for one want to highly eommmd all the officers and the eh/ef for the superb job they are doi,g to protect know that ali of the love is returned.
