Hey, thanks for the note about the Ukiah page. Mendocino County is a pretty rural community overall, and Ukiah is the county seat and largest city in the county. It seems when people reference things happening in nearby communities, they tend to select the largest city in the area, as it makes for an easier reference point to those unfamiliar with the geography. I.e., saying an event or place was in "the San Francisco area" rather than Crockett or Tiburon, or another less familiar name. Redwood Valley is a 15 minute drive north of Ukiah and is a distinct, albeit unincorporated community. The building that used to be the People's Temple sits at 7700 East Road (County Road 230) in Redwood Valley, and is now the local chapter of the Assembly of God. (Here's a photo of the building, from the AoG page [1] ). Of course, you won't find any connection from the church about the temple, and it's difficult to find properly written sources. I'm a 5th generation local to the area so I have the benefit of family history for local information. Unfortunately, family history is not currently a usable source on wikipedia, so I use the few sources I can find to support my native expertise.

Important! - Round up what few ballet enthusiasts you know on Wikipedia and get them to vote on the proposed merging of the Ondine articles that would see the article about Frederick Ashton's production of the actual ballet, being merged into one about the music.

See here: - Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Classical_music#Straw_Poll

And please vote to oppose this change, as this music would not have been written had it not been for Ashton's ballet!!!

Thank You
