Ilana Niernberger, Laura Jorgensen The Road to Mecca at Main Stage West, Sebastopol CA
February 17, 2016
The creative impulse - where it comes from, what triggers it and why - has long been a favorite topic of  discussion. And the “starving artist” struggling for recognition has been featured in gloriously fictional musicals and operas like “American in Paris” and “La Boheme”. The less glamorous but no less compelling stories of real-life artists have also received their share of attention. One of the best of these may be a play called “The Road to Mecca” by South African playwrightAthol Furgard. It premiered at the Yale Repertory Theatre in New Haven, Connecticut in 1984, and off-Broadway in 1988 after runs in London and elsewhere. Furgard also directed and performed in the play himself.

“OK, love your pet…” 

“…just don’t use my front yard!” Seb-towners voice this concern with increasing energy. No one wants to clean up after someone else’s dog. It’s not even pleasant to pick up after your own dog while you enjoy a walk around town. But it’s the right thing to do. So be courteous and pick up after your dog.

Russian River Ambulance at Emergency room door Sonoma West Medical Center Celebrates Opening
January 18, 2016
Looking out over the hundreds of West County supporters happy to be shoulder to shoulder with their neighbors in the Sebastopol Community Center to celebrate the Sonoma West Medical Center [SWMC] being in business, it became clear that our hospital is a living, breathing symbol of what makes a healthy community. Local restaurants donated their fabulous food, and lined the walls of the community room with their cuisine. Wineries and breweries donated their libations, and local musicians donated their talent. The Sonoma West Medical Foundation combined efforts with the SWMC Auxiliary and hospital staff to create the event. But it was the public who made the event the celebration it was.

The Beeler Pathway to Net Zero Energy The Beeler Pathway to Net Zero Energy
December 1, 2015

A net-zero energy building (NZEB) is a building with zero net energy consumption, meaning the total amount of energy used by the building annually is roughly equal to the amount of renewable energy created on the site. Under California’s Building code, Title 24, all new residential construction is to be Zero Net Energy by 2020 with all new commercial buildings achieving this goal by 2030. In a sense, all California building owners are already somewhere on the path to Net Zero Energy, even if they are only at the beginning.
