As quoted in "The islander," '"The Islander' aims to make you think, or make your laugh, or make you feel so disgusted with municipal theory, that you will push the political 'heroes' off their pinnacle and then start yourself to live a practical citizenship." "The Islander" believes that the "Chamber Of Commerce," with its approximately 50 members, which is referred to as "Lefavor's politi- cal machine," is a failure. It is felt that it is working against the "Trustees" of the City of Avalon and their meetings are closed to the public. It went on to state that the election of the officers of tle "Chamber" was rigged by "The Boss," Editor LeFavor, of the com- peting "Wireless" newspaper.

CHOICES and Chamber team up on alcohol training BY JIM WATSON May 14, at the "M" Restaurant in Chamber of Commerce at (310) Special training and certifica- tion courses aimed at reducing alcohol-related problems and lia- bility for local food and drinking establishments will be held May 14 and 15 in Avalon. Catalina's CHOICES (Citizens Helping Our Island Children End Substance Abuse) has teamed up with the Catalina Island Chamber of Commerce to offer training known as LEAD, .or Licensee Education on Alcohol and Drugs. The program is administered by the state Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control. The training is primarily aimed at employees who serve alcohol at local bars and restaurants. Topics covered will include such issues as checking various forms of iden- tification, detecting and prevent- ing illegal activity, awareness of liability laws regarding such prac- tices as "over-serving" and many other topics. "Summer is just around the corner and soon Front Street will be crowded with visitors," said CHOICES volunteer Kristy Throndson, who is coordinating the sessions. "As a community, let's help our visitors have a great time here while being positive role models for both our local and vis- iting youth." Three separate training ses- sions will be held, including 12 p.m. Wednesday, May 14, at the Founder's Room (upstairs above US Bank); 4 p.m. Wednesday, the Metropole Marketplace; and 10 a.m., Thursday, May 15, in the City Council Chambers at Avalon City Hall.
