There is strength in numbers. I hope to see some of you in Santa Rosa for the Women’s March on January 18th, 10 a.m. - 1:30 p.m. in the Courthouse Square. Also the next night, January 19th, is the annual MLK Jr. “Live the Legacy - Make it Happen” celebration at the Santa Rosa High School Auditorium, 7 - 9 p.m. Speaking of blessings, a gift of new life has been bestowed on me this year. I am expecting a baby girl anytime now. She has already brought so much joy to me and my family.

Be sure to visit the Artisans’ Co-op Gallery for your local holiday treasures. Gallery wide sale December 18 to January 2, open daily 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. You will find great additions to your home or unique gifts for those special people in your life. Speaking of special people, I would like to recognize Gloria “Glo” Molica, a heartbeat of Bodega who passed on October 17 at age 67 from Alzheimer’s disease. Her presence will be greatly missed.

As our community arrives at the 2-year anniversary of the 2017 North Bay Fires on October 8th, we are reminded about our vulnerabilities, our struggles to recover, and our continued need for resiliency. Fire and emergency services have been elevated issues over the past two years. They deserve our attention, our respect, and our support. As fire departments countywide are grappling with how to best serve their communities, the local Fire Protection District Boards of Directors in Graton, Gold Ridge and Occidental have decided to take matters into their own hands by placing funding measures on the ballot for a special election this November 5th.

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.
