The solution to our health care crisis is right under our noses!  Medicare — now 54 years old — is popular, efficient, and proven to improve health outcomes for seniors. But before we expand Medicare to all U.S. residents, we must improve Medicare for seniors by covering all medically necessary services, including those not currently covered, such as vision, hearing, dental, mental health, and long-term care. We must also eliminate the financial burden of premiums, deductibles, and copays, making medical bankruptcy a thing of the past.

Little Shop of Horrors, the musical that put Howard Ashman and Alan Menken on the musical theatre map in 1982, has been around long enough that chances are you’ve seen it before— but don’t let that stop you from seeing the superb production at Cinnabar Theater in Petaluma— a truly refreshing, entertaining and superior production of this zany and lovable show.

Hundreds of volunteers in our local counties focus on getting our beaches and rivers clean before the rains come in September on Coastal/ River Cleanups. Much of the debris left along our waterways ends up in the ocean. But you know this! Let’s catch as much of the debris before it makes this awful impact in the waterways around us.  Marine debris is a global pollution problem that impacts human health and safety, endangers wildlife and aquatic habitats, and costs local and national economies millions in wasted resources and lost revenues.”   Please consider participating in a beach or river clean up with your family, friends and join your neighbors making this difference.

September is a month when many birds are exiting cold northern latitudes and migrating to warmer and more food-rich southern areas. There is a bird passing by Sonoma County right now that is in the middle of the longest journey known in the animal kingdom.  This is the  Arctic Tern. But, it isn’t necessary to go out to sea to witness birds that undertake amazingly long distance migrations.  If you take a short drive to the coast, you can see the whimbrel. We can also just look out our window on a pleasant September morning.  There, we are likely to see the very common, humble, and drab-colored Golden-crowned Sparrow.

For a real blockbuster, there’s the classic Gypsy, filled with memorable songs and Broadway performer Kathy Fitzgerald. See what all the fuss was about with that icon of the Broadway belt and head to Sonoma Arts Live for Merman’s Apprentice. Left Edge Theatre breaks their own rules (and why not?) regarding age of play and prior stagings in order to present the contemporary classic Nuts. At Main Stage West, see Body Awareness, one of American playwright Annie Baker’s earliest plays (2008). This year’s festival at Pegasus Theater Company running September 13-28 features six plays, with six local actresses playing all the roles.

All these years of seeing Transcendence Theatre Company shows, and I’d never been to a Gala, the last show of every summer that runs only three performances and caps off the season. Thankfully, after last weekend I can now say I’ve remedied that error, and thoroughly enjoyed it. It’s definitely TTC’s signature style, with outstanding song and dance in original arrangements, but specifically featuring Broadway hits both classic and new, making it an end-of-season gift for patrons.

There are common-sense ways of reducing fire risk. Reducing vegetation can reduce fire intensity and speed.  Keep flammable mulch and excess fuel away from structures. Create gaps in combustible fencing near structures.  Make areas around structures lush and adequately watered. In a wind-driven fire-storm, no habitat with any vegetation is safe though, and people should be prepared to speedily evacuate and save themselves, loved ones and pets.  In the Tubbs Fire (2017), wind-driven fires crossed freeways and burned buildings surrounded by parking lots.

Did you know that brain cells do reproduce? Many preventable factors contribute to brain decline and eventual dementia, including stress, inflammation, trauma or injury, hormonal imbalance, poor diet, drug overuse, and toxicity. Even Electro Magnetic Fields (EMFs) or radio frequency fields such as from cell phones, towers, WiFi or electrical units, can throw the brain and nervous system out of balance over time. The good news is the brain can heal! In my natural medicine practice, certain nutrients are important for rebalancing the brain.

A coalition of cities, counties, towns, and special districts that share the Russian River watershed have partnered to raise awareness about storm drains and their connection to the vitality of our local creeks. Many community members are unaware of the fact that the storm drains in our streets, go directly into local creeks, and ultimately flow into the Russian River. The campaign focuses on raising awareness about impacts to our watershed and water quality by educating residents about one essential fact — only rain should ever go down the storm drain.

Next to the pink and white striped, Patrick’s of Bodega Bay on Highway 1 stands the Old Cannery Building also referred to as Meredith Pier. It juts out more than 100 feet over the bay showcasing its former glory; and it is falling apart.

Recently, buried deep in the insane news cycle of the past month or so, was the story of the citizens of one of our long-standing territories taking to the streets to demand an end to the corruption, the United States of America’s ruling economic junta, and it’s lacky governor.  You may have seen the images coming out of Puerto Rico. It had me thinking that perhaps it was time to visit the sole Puerto Rican restaurant in Sonoma County, El Coqui. What a revelation.

There are still tall, dry grasses, dead limbs on trees, wooden privacy fences right up against houses, landscape mulch that all the fire services tell us is highly flammable and spreads fire in high winds. At a recent presentation by CAL FIRE and State Senator Mike McGuire, we learned that the state of California is taking this all very seriously. They no longer consider us to have a fire SEASON. It’s ALL year. CAL FIRE is replacing Vietnam era helicopters with Black Hawk helicopter. They keep airplanes loaded with fire-retardant rather than loading them when fires begin. They have more people-power than ever before, trained and ready.

There’s a lot of publicity about the lack of affordable housing both nationwide and locally and Sonoma County is doing something about it. SHARE (Shared Housing and Resource Exchange) Sonoma County offers a timely alternative throughout Sonoma County and the Sonoma Valley.  A “Provider” has a room or rooms in his/her home and might need a bit of extra income or some sort of service exchange in order to remain home safely to age-in-place. The “Provider” is carefully and thoughtfully matched with a “Seeker,” someone in need of housing, who is screened and thoroughly background checked with proven financial sustainability should rent be exchanged.

On September 16, 2007, Riverfront Art Gallery first opened its doors.  On September 14, 2019, the gallery will celebrate the completion of its 12th year on the Boulevard!  Co-owners Lance Kuehne and Jerrie Morago were convinced that a gallery of local artists could work, but the art business is notoriously difficult, so nothing was certain.  Of course, at this point, they are beaming at reaching this milestone.

Across the USA, 45 cities and counties have approved local minimum wage laws to address soaring inequality. Twenty-six are in high-cost California coastal counties and the Bay Area: San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Alameda, Contra Costa, Los Angeles, and San Diego. North Bay cities are joining the ‘Fight for $15’ movement. Sonoma approved the first citywide minimum wage law in June 2019 and Petaluma passed the second in July. Novato, Santa Rosa, Cotati, and Sebastopol are considering $15 citywide minimum wage ordinances and will likely adopt legislation comparable to Petaluma’s.

As native carnivores, bobcats (Lynx rufus) are an indicator species of ecosystem health. Yet they face growing challenges as their habitat disappears and human impacts increasingly affect their ability to survive. Fortunately, lawmakers and a coalition of organizations are advancing bills through this session of the California State Legislature that, if passed, would protect bobcats from cruel and senseless killing. AB 1254 passed the Assembly and is scheduled to be heard in Senate Appropriations on August 30. If released, it could hit the Senate floor quickly. Residents can contact their senator and urge a ‘Yes’ vote on AB 1254.

Waterways and Watershed Clean-Up Sonoma County 2019. Every fall volunteers scour the hills, creeks, tributaries, river, and beaches of Sonoma County to remove trash before winter rains wash it out to sea or before floodwaters float trash into our riverbank trees and bushes. It's a daunting task and takes hundreds of people time to accomplish. But the end results are spectacular. Yes, wouldn't it be wonderful if this were not necessary! But it is. Please join all these wonderful people to clean up Sonoma County waterways before winter rains begin! THANK YOU!

The Sonoma Garden Park is one of Sonoma’s hidden treasures. It’s a working organic farm open to visitors, with a Saturday morning Harvest Market, workshops on sustainable farming, the Harry Potter summer camp and native plant nursery. Several  garden plots are available for a nominal rental fee. The Park is located on 7th Street East, between E. Napa and Denmark Street. That’s farm country, what’s left of it, thanks in large part to our Urban Growth Boundary. Sonoma’s UGB will be up for renewal in 2020, and as you’ve probably heard, a fair bit of controversy has arisen around it...

PG&E has hired many different companies to do their work, supposedly to prevent against their power lines causing another devastating wild fire. People are afraid naturally, of a fire, but taking out many of our fine trees is not the answer!

The national behemoth issuing your home insurance policy have decided to go away from covering you.  That is inconvenient at best and financially crippling at worst for you the homeowner, but you can be assured said insurance company behemoth has run the numbers. It’s what they do; their essential function in fact.  This is one large factor underlying the near-seismic shifts in behavior regarding fire. It turns out that there is a way that might be better AND safer than the garden hose gambit.  This is a system offered by a company called Frontline Wildfire Defense Systems.  Essentially, it is a system of smart sprinklers installed on your home by professionals. These sprinklers, when activated, will cover your home with a biodegradable firefighting foam.

It seems like everyone I come in contact with lately is “stressed.”  Why is it that in these modern times, so many feel anxious? The NYT in April reported that “Americans are among the most stressed people in the world.” This survey of 150,000 people worldwide found that Americans reported feeling stress at the highest levels since the study started in 2005. Now, about 55% of adult Americans said they experienced stress “during a lot of the day,” compared to an average of 35% of adults from other places around the globe.

There’s a great story in the program of how the play Nuts took Santa Rosa by storm in 1983 when presented by the new Actors Theatre in a downtown storefront. It’s a warm tale of a populace hungry for meaningful art, rewarding a fledgling theatre company with sold-out performances and acclaim. Left Edge Theatre, the later stepchild of that same group, chose to revive Nuts, defying their own rules to share a play about rules-breaking, fitting in the context of their current season.

From August to October we get to deal with a plague of microscopic blood suckers. I refer, as you undoubtedly guessed, to Thrombicula autumnalis, aka chiggers, or harvest mites. To be fair, only the six-legged Thrombicula larvae are parasitic. These little buggers are about 0.2 mm (roughly 1/100th of an inch) in diameter. The mites are bright yellow-orange in color and pet owners (or sometimes unlucky humans) will sometimes observe them with the naked eye as they sit inside the incredibly itchy lesion where they feed.

Quentin Tarantino has a penchant for pop culture references. His scenes are often dialogue driven and the conversations tend to be quirky and satirical. Although he detests actual violence, his work is permeated with violent situations that are stylistic and bizarre. He says he will make ten movies and then retire to write novels and screenplays. His latest Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is his 9th. Let's check out the other eight that are all available on DVD.

She died peacefully in her Freestone home surrounded by family at the age of 78, after a heartfelt, successful and fulfilling life.

It is important that cycling becomes safer within the city limits. Families in Parkland Farms, for instance, would like to send their children to school by bicycle. But they are worried about the safety of the routes, and they are right. Healdsburg Avenue from the north to the south end of the city needs to be upgraded to a major bicycle route, since it is the most direct and the least hilly route to the schools. Step one is to create a dedicated bicycle lane with more signs indicating that cars and bicycle share the road and parking in bicycle lanes is prohibited.

Brilliant. That’s the word that popped into my head at the end of Eureka Day, presented by Spreckels Theatre Company in Rohnert Park. Absolutely brilliant, timely, prescient, smart, and utterly captivating is this relatively new play by Bay Area playwright Jonathan Spector. It’s also touching, heart-wrenching, and even unsettling in its unsparing observations of current times. Spreckels’ production features a terrific cast and crisp staging to match, and is a definite Don’t Miss.
