As a 21-year-old Army wife, a local therapist attempted to kill herself. "Until that time, my husband hadn’t believed me when I said I was suicidal. Even the Army psychiatrists, whom I begged for help, rejected me," Gail Raborn writes, in her article about spotting the signs of a suicidal thoughts and prevention resources.

The book begins with a prologue featuring an Asian family coming in from the rain with their unruly children to a ritzy hotel and requesting lodging. They are snubbed by the snooty hotel clerk whereupon they just buy the place. The tone has been set.

In the not so distant past, the controversies around what risk different chemicals such as Glyphosates posed to human health pitted the Federal regulators against the Industry representatives. Now, in this new era, many of the leaders at the Environmental Protection Energy have actually come from the ranks of Chemical Industry lobbyists. Not surprisingly, despite increasing evidence of human toxicity, these regulators seem to be losing interest in limiting human exposure to these potentially dangerous substances.

As our children return to school, beauty surrounds many Sonoma County campuses, with bucolic hillsides and sprawling farmland. Yet, unseen toxicity lies within and around these rural schools. For the first time, data about this toxicity is now available to inform parents and the community.

In the last publication, I asked for readers to send me their suggestions, concerns or questions regarding the expanding homeless population in Graton. I received a lot of feedback. Some from e-mails, some calls and then some just passing conversations on the street.

The early fog has burned off, leaving us with a lovely sunny day. The rage redwoods surrounding my airy cyber-hut are outlined against the clear blue sky and the smoke from the dreadful fires has dissipated here. We hope that those fires will soon be extinguished and we salute the brave firefighters for their tireless work on all of our behalves!

I have three daughters; I call them my cubs. I am a mother bear running on instinct, teaching them to forage, hunt, and protect themselves. My duty is to help them survive the wild life of the schoolyard and then the real world.

As the tilted Earth orbits the sun, there are times when the top half (northern hemisphere) is leaning toward the sun and receiving more daylight than night (summer) and times when it’s leaning away from the sun and receiving more night than daylight (winter). In between these two extremes, there are times when neither hemisphere is leaning toward nor away from the sun, and both hemispheres receive equal amounts of day and night. On September 22nd at 6:40 pm, Earth will be in this position and Fall will officially begin as we experience what’s known as the Autumnal Equinox. Equinox is a Latin word, roughly translated to mean “Equal Night” meaning, equal amounts of night.

Janelle Hanchett, author of I’m Just Happy To Be Here, is a wonderful writer. She can be sassy and sarcastic without sacrificing poignancy. I would like to take credit for her talent and her articulate expression as I was her high school English teacher. But, I can’t. She was a natural.

In spring 2019, students from each high school will also be presenting policy and/or infrastructure proposals to their local school boards or administrations.

The thirsty redwoods outside of my airy cyber hut are standing tall in the fog! A bit of summer weather, to be sure!

I know it is the middle of summer, so the idea of planning for next year is probably the furthest thing from your mind. Though with the way the days fly past, before we know it we will be up against the holidays and the New Year will be upon us. Now is the time to start planning for 2019.

Graton has been a bustle of summer activity. The Graton Green Village housing is coming along and downtown is looking different. I am so excited to see the blackberries starting to ripen. Looking forward to making pies, jams and syrup! I hope that everyone is feeling well and enjoying all the bounty of local fruits and vegetables.

The problem with having a business especially a small business is that there is never enough time to do everything that you need (never mind want) to do.

Unstoppable by Inga Lizdenyte is many things: an autobiography, an epistolary piece, a spiritual/inspirational guide and a tragic love story.

Around midday, on October 19th, 2018, I made my way around the nature preserve that I manage in Northern California, collecting all of the footage from the trail cameras that I have positioned on the land. Having seen at least two mountain lions pass by one of my cameras at 7:45 in the morning, I expected that the big cats would be bedded down amongst the nearby cypress and manzanita for the day. I knew that the lions would be rising around sunset, so at around 5:30 in the afternoon, I headed out the ridge-top trail where the camera trap had photographed the predators nine hours prior. I moved towards one of the more overgrown paths, and in an instant, was watching two mountain lion heads bobbing their way up the steep slope towards me.

A creative and collaborative project blending public art, youth job training, environmental stewardship and education was recently accomplished in the Historic Railroad Square area of Santa Rosa. Looking along Wilson Street at the corners of 4th and 5th Streets adjacent to Chevy’s and Aroma Roasters you will now find five storm drain curb faces adorned with environmentally-themed art. These are the first artistically painted storm drains on Santa Rosa’s 18,000 drains that connect to the 100-mile network of creeks flowing through town. The project hopes to realize real-time health benefits to local water quality and creek wildlife habitat by creating this storm drain art.

In many businesses staff training is a haphazard affair that doesn’t happen very often. Businesses that are in high turnover industries sometimes expect their employees to come already trained, feeling that they lose money on training when people leave.  However,the gains for training staff (even if they are not with you for very long) still outweigh the costs and time spent.

November begins with Saturn and Mars gracing our early evening skies, but by month’s end, Saturn begins its fateful sojourn into the glare of the setting sun, leaving only Mars to reign supreme in the early evening sky.
