In recent hirings, the Dis- trict was fortunate to recruit Ms. Margaret Trimble for Spanish courses and Ms. Maribeth Kelly for Physical Education; while both are operating presently with "emergency credentials" tempo- rarily, in fact they both have de- grees in the field of their class assignments. Now there are some school dis- tricts that want to see their teach- ers actually display their degrees and diplomas inside their class- rooms, much like you would see in a doctor's office (or so-I hear, but I have my eyes closed in most of those situations). This would provide credibility to the teaching profession. I could also see them displaying other accolades on the wall, not unlike Purple Hearts or other related "badges of courage." So, is that something that visi- tors would want to see as they enter a classroom? Would this reassure them that the classroom is in the hands of a true profes- sional? Or would they rather see other types of evidence. Visiting a classroom and sim- ply watching the interaction be- tween the teacher and students will usually give a pretty good indication. However, what one sees at any given time depends on many dif- ferent variables. Still, there are some things that we would hope to see in every learning environ- ment-at school, in the home, etc. These are the things that we are trying to identify in the Clover- dale Schools at this time. We are working on a list of things that we are willing to say WILL occur in our classrooms, that have the most value in the teaching-learning process. We've already identified the content (the information) we want our students to have, but we should also be able to determine the most effective ways of deliv- ering it. In the act of targeting important conditions for learn- ing, we can greatly improve learn- ing itself. The things the staff seems to have agreed upon are: Positive Attitude, Respect, Responsibility, Enthusiasm for Learning Caring, Consistency, and Trust/Hones- ty. It is important to have teachers with a strong background in that. subject area the}, are assigned to instruct. However, it is also important that teachers to be communica- tors and, particularly, strong mod- els for students. Roland Barth, a Harvard pro- fessor who a few years ago toured schools throughout the country as research for his book Improving Schools From Within, determined that the most important job of a teacher was to be a model. One of my favorite phrases may summarize this best: "I don't care what you know until I know you care."

The regulation requires all rec- reational vessels less than 16 feet in length, including canoes and kayaks, to carry a Type I, II, III or V wearable personal flotation de- vice for each person on board. Prior to the new law, vessels un- der 16 feet were only required to carry either a throwable or a wear- able personal flotation device for each person on board. The carriage requirements for vessels 16 feet or longer remain unchanged. A life jacket must be carried for each person on board. In addition, the boat must carry one throwable type flotation de- vice ( a Type IV cushion or ring buoy). Life jacket laws are enforced on all waters in the state.

New art shows at LBC California Art Museum Memory and whimsy ring in the new year in the form of three West Springs Road, Santa Rosa. All three shows open Jan. 14. Lucy Pule sculpture is made of very ordinary objects; such as, stuffed toy animals, little patent leather shoes, outdated encyclo- pedia pages, the kinds of things most people don't know whether to throw away or to keep. She transforms these objects by en- capsulating them in blocks of res- in or cement or by gluing disparate things together. Michael Rudnich made his en- try into the art world as a film- maker. He became known for his time-lapse photography and helped found an off-the-beaten path cinema called the NoNoth- ing in San Francisco in 1982. Rudnick's Wire Works exhibit features kinetic sculpture based on the mechanics of film. The wire works included in this exhi- bition produce the illusion of three- dimensional animation. Alongside the two shows men- tioned above, the museum will feature works from its collection in the foyer Gallery. All three exhibitions run from Jan. 14 through March 1 at the California Museum of Art locat- ed at the Luther Burbanl Center, 50 Mark West Springs Road, San- ta Rosa. Lucy Puls will present a gallery talk Jan. 30 at 7 p.m. and Rudnick will present his talk Feb. 7 at 2 p.m. Admission for the exhibition and related events is $2 for non- members. For more information call the museum office at 707-527- 0297. I own that I am disposed to say grace 20 other occasions in the course of the day besides my dinner. I want a form for setting out upon a pleasant walk, for a moonlight ramble, for a friendly meeting, or a solved problem. Why have we none for books, those spiritual repasts -- a grace before Mil- ton -- a grace before Shakespeare ? Charles Lamb Formula for handling people: 1. Listen to the other person's story. 2. Listen to the other person's full story. 3. Listen to the other person's full story first.
