Ross noted its origins reach back twenty years. Ross presented four large sketches outlining possible plaza configurations. This project is being resurrected now as the Highway 12 reconfiguration is about to begin. (See below)

Model train buffs come out of their corners around Christmastime. Is it because they remember the joy of seeing the Lionel come chugging around the tree on Christmas morning? At the Depot Station Museum here, Coastal Valley Lines, an informal association of novice to expert model railroaders put together an exhibit for the Museum, and on December 12 I was invited by executive director Patricia Cullinan to a holiday party to celebrate the exhibit.

The recent closing of the mouth of the Russian River and the subsequent reopening by the SoCo Water Agency remind us of the efforts underway to restore our precious Coho and Steelhead habitat. Of course in a manner of days, Mother Nature’s ocean forces had it closed again. Currently we have an estuary brim full, with the waves washing over the dunes regularly, hopefully helping to create habitat beneficial to the salmonids.
