For well over four decades, every Fourth of July celebration has brought our city all the color and excitement of a spectacular, professionally produced fireworks display generously sponsored by the Cloverdale Lions Club. This year, as always, the show starts at dusk, about 9 p.m., and the happy crowd will start gathering early on the football field at Cloverdale High School. Admission is free. Donations are appreciated.

As you may have heard, Cloverdale City Manager Paul Cayler is retiring March 31st. Unlike some long-time CMs, Paul is not simply an official up on the podium at city council meetings and regularly quoted in the media.

You don’t have to be a legendary vintner to know that all great wine makers share that same special passion. Just talk wine with one of them…or, better, with two. That’s exactly what we did when we met recently with Kathleen Kelley Young and her daughter, Madeline Kelley Stewart, at the newly opened tasting room: Kelley & Young Winesat the Library.

The difference between seeing a play again and watching a movie more than once, is that the play will necessarily be different every time you see it. Even if it’s the same cast, a play is a living thing with changing moods and nuances. I’ve seen Sam Shepard’s True West several times and each endeavor has been different. Director Christopher Johnston’sproduction at Cloverdale Performing Arts Center is full of energy, truth and brilliant acting.

Throughout our region and well beyond, the new millennium has ushered in an increasing recognition of Cloverdale as a dynamic incubator for an ever expanding and inspiring range of culturally diverse projects and events focused on the visual and performing arts.

Eccentric San Francisco residents wander through Nick’s waterfront dive bar, swapping outrageous tales, looking for jobs, and flirting with women who take their fancy. Premiering in 1939, the play’s age is evident in jokes about darkies, Indians, and midgets which are in poor taste. William Saroyan’s casual pace and shifting style augments these unfortunate details, coming to a hasty and violent denouement which seems out of place with the previous quiet, thoughtful monologues.

Cloverdale Performing Arts Center’s latest production is The Time of Your Life by William Saroyan. If the work of this author doesn’t immediately come to mind, that’s not surprising. Though this California native lived into the 1970’s, the bulk of his popularity in both stage and novels came during World War II. But this play has surprising relevance to the issues and tone of many debates going on today.

Thinking outside the box once again, Cloverdale Performing Arts Center opens their 2018 season with David Mamet’s November, in February. But the timing couldn’t be better. With everything going on in the real White House these days, it’s fun to compare that with Mamet’s vision of a desperate man’s last-ditch effort to hold on to power even when all hope is gone.

Our community has never been stronger than it is today. We were sorely tested by the fires in October. We’ve been tested ever since, as fire survivors clean up the ashes and rubble of our homes and attempt to keep our focus on the future.
