Though the smoke and sadness from Butte still hangs heavy in the air and in my heart, rain is finally here and I am finding plenty to be thankful for myself. Democrats took back the house, Measure M passed and Prop. 6 did not. Happy that our local parks have a dedicated source of funding, and relieved that transportation infrastructure improvements will continue to be funded.

Fall is definitely upon us since last I wrote. We thankfully received a couple of inches of rain what already seems like quite a long time ago. My deck has been blown of leaves many times, and I need to get up on the roof to clean out the gutters. The days are a lot shorter, and we continue to lose a few minutes of daylight every day...Election day is coming up on Tuesday, November 6thPlease everyone get out and vote. The measure I feel most strongly about is Measure M, the parks for all measure here in Sonoma County. When this issue came up a couple years ago, I voted yes even though I wasn’t quite comfortable with the fact that the funding mechanism was a half cent sales tax imposed only on the unincorporated areas of the county. Well, they went back to the drawing board after that narrow defeat and crafted a measure that I can support 100%.

I am having a hard time with the fact that the farmers market is coming to an end for the year with the last market taking place on October 26th. Please make sure to stop by in the next few weeks to support our local farmers and crafts-people.

Summer is definitely in full swing, I saw tomatoes at the farmers market on Friday. Mine are still a few weeks away, though my fig tree has started producing and I picked my first basket of blackberries yesterday—hooray!

Hello Gazette readers. By the time this issue hits the newsstands it is officially summer, yay! I want to send a shout-out to all the Dub’s fans out there—Let’s Go Warriors! Three titles in four years, pretty amazing stuff, especially when you consider how many years of futility we had to suffer through prior to the run we’re on.
