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. originally scheduled to speak, died unexpectedly on February 25. Her vivid personality and local voice for feminist issues, and local journalism, will be much missed. 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”.

Upgrade to the rail crossingand the safety improvements came from the ad hoc group called the "Citizen's Organization Of Penngrove". Also  You’ll see chain-link fencing around the lot next to Penngrove Pub on Main Street, soon to be a two-story building. It will have retail commercial (non-food) on the first floor and a residence on the second floor, with on-site parking for both uses, and a private deck for the residence.
