The Lower Russian River Trail Feasibility Study has been holding public workshops and meetings since May 2019, to gather input on their plans for a car-free, continuous walking and bicycling trail from Forestville to Jenner along the Lower Russian River corridor. It details the study process and community input, recommended trail alignment and amenities, estimated costs, and offers the next steps to move toward implementation. The Public Draft Study is now available for community review. Please provide your feedback by 5pm on Tuesday, January 21.

I don’t know about you but I’m all for kicking 2019 to the curb and taking on the New Decade!  2020 is such a nice round number, full of potential, rife with possibilities, a powerful year I’m sure.  We know the political wrangling’s will either generate or conversely suck up lots of energy being an election year and all, yet we’re out there. We get a say in who leads us and we are having serious discussions about the future we design.  If you don’t think life is interesting, you may not be paying attention.

“I calm myself and check in.”  “Awareness of breathing brings immediate calm. It is a bridge to self- reflection that guides us to effective choices.”  Boy, that’s for sure!  I learned that as a Crisis Counselor to those who lost everything in the wildfires two years go. It was the best tool we could suggest. When we calm down we make better decisions.

5th District Supervisor Lynda Hopkins called a meeting to gather neighbors negatively impacted by visitors to Russian River parks each summer. She invited Regional Parks director Bert Whitaker and his staff, Public Works director Johannes Hoevertsz, and our local CHP officers who patrol the Russian River corridor in weekends when the impact is greatest. Residents gathered at the Hollydale Club to listen to what is being done, and add their own ideas about what can and should be done to mitigate impacts.

It's a very sad day in Forestville as teachers parade in front of the school asking for a Living Wage while administrators prepare for opening day with substitutes. This small community school once boasted more than 800 students and is now down to less than 300 from Kindergarten through 8th Grade. Once the recipient of the California Distinguished Schools Award, parents have pulled their children from this school to attend neighboring schools instead. Both parents and students who love the tradition of multiple generations attending their hometown school are stressed and concerned about the future of their school.
