Long-time Austin Creek resident Judith Heinemann writes with concern for the king snakes sunning themselves in the middle of the road! Please do be aware of them. She is also pointing out the rather wanton approach of PG&E regarding removal of 'problem' trees. Dead trees are one thing, live trees not posing an imminent threat to power lines should be left in place!

Delicious California/New Orleans food at Cape Fear, pizza and music on Friday Nights at Raymond's Bakery, sweet and savory baked goods, tacos on the spacious back deck and great coffee at Gold Coast Cafe', The Blue Heron's fish and chips, along with Sunday live music are all enticing.
