Once again, Cloverdale has had to cope with both the fires in Sonoma County and their after effects. Despite the fact that we have not had direct impact, we all experience the emotional upheaval from the fires and ask many questions.There has never been a more important time to support our local community - that is eating local, shopping local and using local resources as well as helping your neighbor. The  22nd Cloverdale Toy Run  is hosted by the Cloverdale Lions Club. December 1st; Registration 9-11 am; Santa Ride 1-2 pm followed by BBQ with raffle prizes and more

As we began talking about what is happening in Cloverdale this month, our first meeting came to mind. Reece was tabling for the Human Rights Commission in 2003 and Carol walked up to the table and started talking – truth be known she is still talking. She had been in town three months; Reece had been here three years. Their friendship started that day 16 years ago and obviously is still going on – together we are writing“Cloverdale Comments” for the Gazette.

If our city does get into trouble, we’ll need to know who’s close-by, who can help or, conversely, whom we might be able to help. If we ever have to leave our homes and even this entire area, we’ll need to know how we can all get to safety without causing congestion and other problems. For instance: what are the surest routes in and out of our neighborhoods?

Anyone looking to liven up the midsummer doldrums should head on over to theCloverdale Performing Arts Center for “a hilarious evening of murder and mayhem” in the form of their stage production of The 39 Steps.I’ve used the words “fast” and “fun” more than once in this review. I could change a few to “rapid” and “amusing” but the meaning would be the same. Fasten your seat belts for this play. It’s not a bumpy ride, but a wild one and you’ll be laughing all the way.

We need more kindness, more compassion, more joy, more laughter. I definitely want to contribute to that. — Ellen DeGeneres. Walk around Cloverdale today and look for painted rocks left by an artist for you to find. Wonderful works of art—an owl, a ninja, a cat on a fence, or a simple color with the greeting, “Hi!”. Generosity of spirit, beauty, goodness, kindness, and talent all waiting on the ground for you. Good feelings are not just limited to painting rocks, there was plenty of good feelings Last Friday night at Friday Night Live street fair and live music on the Plaza.
