News from Recreation, Parks and Community Services! Our Department has been going through some extreme budget cuts this year. We have been forced to downsize our park maintenance staff for 61 parks. Now, more then ever, we need the community to step up to help us with litter pick up, reporting safety hazards and organizing group ½ day and full day clean-up projects. We also have an Adopt-a-Greenspace program in which businesses, neighborhood and community groups can care for a park or green space on an ongoing basis. Please go to our new Volunteer Santa Rosa website at srcity.org/volunteersantarosa for lots of opportunities to get involved. We also want to thank our many customers who have gone to city council meetings in support of our programs and facilities as well as those who have donated money to our Aquatics Trust Fund, Senior Center Trust Fund and Youth Scholarship Fund. We will continue to do our best to offer a multitude of quality programs for your family. Our Spring Guide will be mailed the 2nd week of February. Please call us if you want to be on our mailing list at 543-3282 or 543-3737.

Thank you for helping us to achieve our mission of creating community through people, parks and programs! Registration for Fall Classes or Activities begins August 5, 2010 Recreation information 543-3282 or 543-3737

Steele Lane Community Center Steele Lane Community Center - 415 Steele Lane GEN ZOVICH July 19- September 10 Reception July 21st, 4-6 pm As a California native and geologist, Gen has been captivated by the dynamic landscape of California where nature’s creativity is evident not only in the flora and fauna, but in the changing landscape of an active geologic region. Her landscapes are completely painted outside on location throughout California. Her focus is on natural forms as well as man-made ones interacting with the natural landscape. Color, texture, and luminosity are characteristic of her paintings, just as it is in the layers of soil and minerals that make up the landscape.

Art Exhibitions

Finley Community Center Finley Community Center - 2060 W. College Avenue ABSTRACT ARTISTS GROUP July 26- September 24 Reception July 29th, 5-7 pm As artists, we seek in the camaraderie of others who spend many hours expressing ourselves in line, shape, value, color, and texture; this is quite a unique activity in the larger scale of occupations. There is an excitement in knowing that there is a shared desire and in a multifaceted expressive language and process in creating a work of art that opens views in to the uncharted areas of our collective souls. Coming together offers us the opportunity to emerge from the isolation that artists typically work in and into the larger context. That is one that allows the artist to explore the region of that secret place where primal power nurtures all of nature. As a group we can seek venues that will exhibit our works as it is displayed side by side.

INTERTWINED TREASURES July 26 – September 24 Reception July 29th, 5-7 pm Art does not have to be large in order to have power. Intertwined, a group of 7 artists, proudly presents work that is considered to be small treasures. They have crafted smaller artwork that touches the soul, allowing for greater intimacy with the art. A variety of materials have been used to make their two-dimensional and three-dimensional imagery, with the subject matter left up to the individual artists. Jennifer Baker: Sculpture, Mixed-media; Robin Burgert: Painting, Sculpture; Jean Cullinane: Painting, Mixed-media; Eileen Jungwirth: Ceramic Sculpture; Susan Osmers: Painting, Drawing; Karen Rose: Encaustic, Sculpture; Pam Selvaraj: Painting, Mixed-media.

SENIOR ART September 27 – November 19 Reception September 30th, 1:30-4pm Celebrate Senior Creativity! The 13th annual Senior Art show highlights the art of Sonoma County seniors. Our goal is to enhance seniors’ lives by encouraging them to experience the joy of creativity while providing an opportunity for them to share their art in a professional setting. Artwork was created by amateur to professional senior artists affiliated with agencies that either provide art classes or serve seniors. Some of the represented agencies are the nine Sonoma County Senior Centers, Becoming Independent, Southwest Adult Day Services, and Sonoma County Indian Health Center. This exhibit is sponsored by the Adult and Aging Division of the Sonoma County Human Services Department. The exhibit will include oils, pastels, watercolors, mixed media, sculpture, woodworking, photography and much more.

SRJC OLDER ADULT PROGRAM ART INSTRUCTORS November 22- January 14 Reception December 2nd, 5-7 pm The SE 501 Creative Arts for Adults Course is designed to enrich the quality of life for older adults through art.

MILTON WOOLLEY: REFLECTION AND SHADOWS July 12- September 3 Reception July 23rd, 5-7 pm Milton enjoys creating images from recognizable landscapes or natural light that offer a distortion or a reflection which causes the viewer to question what he or she is seeing. There are two points of contact with photography that gives him joy. The first is discovering a visual phenomenon that is pleasing, interesting or naturally deceptive.

Basic chords, strums and lyrics are introduced as you “play by ear”. Bring a four stringed ukulele. Min 10 Max 15 Instructor: Ed Hayes over 50 years playing the ukulele, teaching for over 20 years.

Director’s Note Fall/Winter 2010-11 SRCT Bridget Palmer

HAVE YOU HEARD OF THE 80% LAW? Eric Booth, a nationally recognized arts educator, stresses the idea that 80% of your impact on others is WHO YOU ARE – the radiance with which your personality shines and influences others. That’s why signing your child up for theater classes is such a great investment in their future! Because theater emphasizes human relationships, it is unique among the arts in offering children a deep play experience that yields high performance interpersonal skills. To be the center of attention requires many children to grow their level of courage. Through practice, we learn to overcome the fear of being in the spotlight. We learn to function as creative, expressive beings who have an impact on others. We learn that our imagination turns ideas into realities, and that careful listening and tuning into feelings helps us develop a high level of emotional intelligence. These are the life-long gifts you are giving your child when you enroll them in a theater experience. This session, I’m going to experiment with a new teaching strategy at Proctor Terrace. Instead of integrating the younger students into the “Big Show,” I’ll be directing them in their own performance which will take place right before the longer show. If your child is 7 or 8, please sign them up for whichever section would be most appropriate for their level of experience and readiness to participate. Children in Section A should be good readers with the capacity to cooperate well in a group setting. Section A will focus on developing excellent performance skills while Section B will learn the basics of acting and perform a custom-crafted story showcasing the children’s creativity and growing skills.

Santa Rosa Children’s Theater, sponsored by Santa Rosa Rec & Parks, provides quality performing arts to children. All instructors have formal training and experience in stage craft. Children are always the most important priority in every production.

CPR & FIRST AID (Age 12+)

Did you know that the brain starts to die in just 4-6 minutes after the heart stops beating? If CPR is not performed properly within that time, the victim will die. Do you know what to do if your husband stops breathing, your child chokes on a piece of meat, your neighbor gets cut by a table saw, a relative has a diabetic emergency, a co-worker has a seizure? These are all accidents that happen everyday. How would you feel if you were unable to intervene properly to save the life of a friend or loved one? Don’t let this happen to you. Take this fun, hands-on class and be prepared in the event of a life-threatening emergency. Participants will receive two-year infant, child and adult certifications in both CPR and First Aid.

WILDERNESS FIRST AID (Age 12+)

No one sets off on an outdoor adventure expecting a medical problem to occur. However, a potentially hostile environment and lack of facilities can quickly cause a routine situation to escalate into a real medical emergency. There is no substitute for preparedness. Everyone venturing into the wilds should have an understanding of basic first aid and wilderness rescue. Do you know how to handle a sprained ankle or how to properly splint a broken bone? Would you know what to do if a camper fell into a fire? Do you know what percentage of rattlesnake bites are dry bites (no venom), and how to tell the difference? If not, this informative, interactive and fun workshop is perfect for the experienced backpacker as well as family day hikers. Note: Standard First Aid is required as a prerequisite. .

CLASS LEVEL DESCRIPTIONS Beginning Tennis- is for players who have never taken a class before, and want to learn the fundamentals. Junior (4yrs to 18yrs) players should stay in beginning tennis until they can rally with other kids consistently. For adults, they should only stay in beginning tennis for one class session. Advanced Beginning- is a secondary class for adults. They should have taken a beginning class before or have reasonable control rallying with other players. This is an introduction class to score keeping and playing so if you already know how to play matches, you should be in adult Drills or Intermediate classes. For juniors you should be able to keep rallies with other juniors but not have match play experience. Beginner Intermediate- is an introduction class for juniors to competitive tennis. You should have taken beginning tennis as well as have the ability to play from the baseline with other students and be able to serve the ball with some consistency. Usually recommended for kids older than 10.

Budget Information

~ Major Budget Changes for 2010/2011 ~ The Recreation, Parks & Community Services Department has been affected by the recession just like many families and businesses. We faced significant budget cuts this past year and will face more in the coming year. We have worked hard to mask the impacts of reductions, but the most recent cuts have, and will continue to have, very visible impacts on the community. In addition to visible impacts in our parks, we are faced with finding ways to keep the doors open to our swim centers and community centers. At the direction of the City Council, we are pursuing a plan to raise our revenues by charging a park use fee in Howarth Park and raising programs fees at all of our facilities. We also have put a structure in place to receive donations from the public and have had a number of people from the community step up to help us fundraise. In addition to raising revenue and fees, we are planning to reduce ongoing operating costs at the swim centers by installing energy efficient heating systems. Our hope is that the community will understand that the most practical way to sustain our programs during the recession is to raise our fees and reduce operating costs.

Budget Specifics

The budget cuts for fiscal year 2009/10 were severe. We cut $2.4M from the previous year, 2008/09, and 33 full and part time staff from park maintenance, recreation & gang prevention. The next fiscal year will be even tougher. $2M more will be cut as well as 15.95 full and part time staff. We have also been asked to raise revenues by $1M (or cut $1M) in recreation programs alone. With proposed reductions in 2010/11, our parks, neighborhood services, and recreation division we will have cut 48.95 staff over the last three fiscal years. We started with 121.15 full and part time staff in these divisions in 2008/09 and they will have 72.2 staff in 2010/11, a 40.4% decrease. The total general fund budget for Fiscal Year 2010/11 is $12, 687,701, a 16.43% decrease from fiscal year 2009/10.

Programs and Services that have been affected by Extreme Budget Cuts • Only 12 park maintenance staff will remain in the Department to maintain 61 parks, Downtown & LBH&G. (In 2003 we had 70 park staff). • Park Maintenance staff no longer plant, prune or remove street trees. • There is severely reduced maintenance at our Neighborhood parks; most of our maintenance resources will need to be utilized in our heavily visited community parks. • We have a limited ability to respond to complaints. • Mowing & edging is now provided by a private contractor. • Decreased ability for parks staff to respond to special requests by park patrons and prepare for special events. • Parks will be watered less frequently due to increased water costs; turf will turn brown in most neighborhood parks and in some areas, will be eliminated. • Adult basketball, flag football, volleyball and ultimate Frisbee programs were eliminated. • The fee-based, after-school programs offered at school sites has beeen eliminated. • Neighborhood Services youth development programs have been reduced. • After 55 years, our free Summer Playground Program has been suspended. • We will have fewer programs and classes, with higher fees. • Our Senior Center Membership & drop-in class fees have doubled. • We increased fees for swim programs, lessons, and pool usage. • Reduced staff commitment to Citizens Organized to Prepare for Emergencies Program (COPE). • Added New Community Services Division to facilitate city-wide volunteer program, partnerships and to support community events. • The City’s Building Maintenance Division, with staffing at half the national standard and over $12 M in deferred maintenance, was transferred to Department in 2009.

PRESERVING THE HARVEST: CANNING, FREEZING AND OTHER TECHNIQUES FOR “PUTTING UP”

When we have abundance as we do in the fall, it’s time to put food away. It used to be that one of the only ways to do that was to “put food up”, as in canning.

Please bring any “extra” produce and we can put it up in class. Everyone will leave with at least 1 “canned” jar. If you have extra canning jars and lids, bring them to use or share.

THE ROAD TO RAW: SPROUTING AND FERMENTING

Eating more raw foods is a great idea no matter what else you choose to eat. Including more sprouts and fermented foods gives your eating a boost. Sprouts offer fresh and delicious food in your kitchen all year round, from nuts, seeds, beans and grains. Small batch fermenting is best done at home. If fermentation sounds scary, think of products such as bread, cheese, beer and wine. Learning how to naturally ferment vegetables such as pickles or other fermentations such as kim chi or sauerkraut can change your intestinal health for the better. Some believe that eating fermented foods also offers protection against certain types of cancer. Learning the art of vegetable fermentation is easy and Jill will show you what you need to know to turn locally grown produce into products that will improve your health and well being.

Safety/Education CPR & FIRST AID (Age 12+)

Hunter Education - CA DEPT OF FISH & GAME HOME STUDY/ON-LINE (Age 18+)

Did you know that the brain starts to die in just 4-6 minutes after the heart stops beating? If CPR is not performed properly within that time, the victim will die. Do you know what to do if your husband stops breathing, your child chokes on a piece of meat, your neighbor gets cut by a table saw, a relative has a diabetic emergency, a co-worker has a seizure? These are all accidents that happen everyday. How would you feel if you were unable to intervene properly to save the life of a friend or loved one? Don’t let this happen to you. Take this fun, hands-on class and be prepared in the event of a life-threatening emergency. Participants will receive two-year infant, child and adult certifications in both CPR and First Aid. Min 6 Max 24 Instructor: Eric Peterson’s professional career includes training as a Rural Paramedic, EMT Certification/Instructor, Firefighter for US Forest Services & Reserve Fireman, Health Instructor for Sonoma County School Districts, and a graduate of U.C. Davis Health & Safety Certification Program.

This 4-hour class lets you rely on your experience, home study and internet on-line study course to prepare. There are three internet on-line courses to choose from http:// hunterexam.com/usa/california, http://www.hunter-ed.com/, http://homestudy. ihea.com/. Class objectives are: to address questions from the internet on-line course; review of key information; hands-on firearms session (no live fire); and administer the Dept. of Fish and Game Hunter Education test. Recommended age is 18 or older. A parent or legal guardian must accompany any student under 18 to sign necessary documents at the beginning of class. Students must successfully complete the internet on-line portion of the home study course, print out and bring to class the official Pre-Certification Exam Voucher.

Safety/Education WILDERNESS FIRST AID (Age 12+)

No one sets off on an outdoor adventure expecting a medical problem to occur. However, a potentially hostile environment and lack of facilities can quickly cause a routine situation to escalate into a real medical emergency. There is no substitute for preparedness. Everyone venturing into the wilds should have an understanding of basic first aid and wilderness rescue. Do you know how to handle a sprained ankle or how to properly splint a broken bone? Would you know what to do if a camper fell into a fire? Do you know what percentage of rattlesnake bites are dry bites (no venom), and how to tell the difference? If not, this informative, interactive, and fun workshop is perfect for the experienced backpacker as well as family day hikers. Note: Standard First Aid is required as a prerequisite. Min 8 Max 20 Instructor: Eric Peterson’s professional career includes training as a Rural Paramedic, EMT Certification/Instructor, Firefighter for U.S. Forest Service & Reserve Fireman, Health Instructor for Sonoma County School Districts, and a graduate of U.C. Davis Health & Safety Certification Program. Wed, 9/15 6;00-9:00pm Finley/Maple Rm $48 (S.R. Resident $38) #55756
