Those of you who remember the Jim Kweskin Jug Band’s early days will fondly recall their upbeat sound, part of the general spirit and clamor of the 1960s. Kweskin, now 79, will be  at the Occidental Center for the Arts on Sept. 22, accompanied by Meredith Axelrod, a young woman who has played with Dan Hicks, Maria Muldaur, Geoff Muldaur, Ramblin’ Jack Elliot, and David Grisman. Both musicians will be on vocals, guitar, and banjo, with possibly a jug tune or two from her.

Held on a rural ranch, a few miles inland from the spectacular Sonoma Coast, the Bodega Seafood, Art & Wine Festival celebrates year twenty-five this summer. Sophisticated yet down-home, it’s garnered the reputation of being one of the premier art, wine, beer and food festivals in California. This annual benefit attracts thousands of foodies, art aficionados, wine and beer connoisseurs and music lovers to picturesque Watts Ranch in the village where Alfred Hitchcock once filmed his classic thriller, The Birds. The festival is a food lover’s dream, especially for people who love seafood. Non-fish eaters will have no trouble finding delicious vegetarian options, meat, chicken and sweet treats galore.

We always think of summer as vacation time - time to play! And one of the spectacular benefits of living in Sonoma County is that we are home to amazing musicians who love to play music for their neighbors! Weather is good - venues vary from arks to concert arenas - food is available for those who just want to sit and relax - dance floors about for those who can't help themselves but have to MOVE! It's everything we want for summer fun. And some of these concerts even benefit good causes! Win/Win for everyone! 15 venues with live music all summer long for FREE or under $25 a ticket.

Of course, some people have great luck with farming, but I don’t believe anyone will tell you it’s an easy life. Every child in my mother’s family did farm chores. The youngest at age three fed the chickens and hunted for eggs. The oldest helped their father feed the cows and do the daily milking. My mother recalls a year they planted eight sacks of potatoes and only grew eight sacks of potatoes! That was a hunger year. My grandmother Alice Baker worked as a sharecropper at the age of 12 with her four siblings. When her children were small on the Homestead, she taught them not to greedily fill their stomachs. She led them in saying grace and leaving food so that the whole family would get enough to eat. In other words, eat to live not live to eat. So, I congratulate Cotati for their vision and follow-through on Veronda-Falletti Ranch.

One of the wonderful things about Cloverdale is its ever-increasing diversity, including  personal perspectives and views on life. Both of us have lived here for almost 20 years. Both of us have been active in our community, meeting different people, listening to them, interacting with each other in many positive ways. Recently, we began thinking: “Wouldn’t it be great to start a community dialogue?” Vicky Groom is one community leader whose special path we often cross. We asked Vicky to write her personal story of why and how she got involved doing “something” on a local and  national level. Here, in her own words, is her inspiring story:
