A new campus for Bergin University of Canine Studies is almost complete at the former Green Mill site on Old Redwood Highway. Facilities manager Eric Jensen and founder Bonnie Bergin gave me a tour last month of the modular buildings centered around a quad. With a budget of $700,000, there will be three classrooms, an administration office, a training space with a mirror wall to reflect what trainers and dogs are doing, and a restroom block. The units house Associate and Bachelor degree classrooms, and a library with small classroom and lunch break space.

Susan Swartz’s new fiction, Laughing in the Dark, rides the roller coaster year in three women’s lives as they navigate infidelity, the latest California dying styles, and the absurdities of aging together. Swartz’s was long time journalist, author, radio commentator and public speaker.

On January 2, 2020, the people of Penngrove and environs gathered at the Penngrove Social Firemen's clubhouse for a presentation of “Living with lions” by Dr. Quinton Martins of the Audubon Research Ranch. The gathering was in response to the recent killing of a llama and a large goat in the Sonoma Mountain area around Lichau/Cold Springs. While people are often afraid of a lion, killing a lion does not help. Dr. Martin said that “if you kill one male, two will takes its place”.
