Salli “Raz” (Harrison) Rasberry was a beloved West County community member, cherished and known by many as the Original Hippie of Sonoma County. She died peacefully in her Freestone home surrounded by family at the age of 78, after a heartfelt, successful and fulfilling life. The newest novel by Eldonna Edwards is Clover Blue, which is about a boy searching for identity in rural Freestone, Sonoma County, within a commune of the 1970s.

The Valley Ford Cheese & Creamery now has its very own store front! The Valley Ford Cheese & Creamery now has its very own store front! Doors opened on May 2nd, although the shop was purchased in early 2016. Karen Bianchi runs the distribution out of their new location along with the front of house. She is excited because it’s “good to build relationships with the consumer.” 

The Sonoma-Marin Dairy Belt has undoubtedly transformed due to increased costs and consolidation of the market. The business is not what it used to be. Fourth generation farmers like Karen have to think outside the milk box to survive and continue their family legacy.

I had the great pleasure to meet with our new neighbor, Lindsey Migdalski, the owner of the Mudd & Gold shop. She has lived in Bodega Bay since August, 2018. She was born to be a barber. As a young girl, she would chop up the hair of all her barbies. Once she found the clippers, she took it upon herself to give the family dogs a new hairstyle. As a teen, she trimmed and colored her boyfriend’s hair. Finally, she went to cosmetology school at age 19 and has been a hair stylist ever since.
