About a hundred people turned out on the Plaza in support of the Climate Strike Friday, September 20th. Happily, some 20 kids from Altimira showed up – to cheers and applause. But the absence of the high school students we had come to support was glaring. Turns out the vanguard of this growing outcry against governmental inertia on climate change were not permitted to leave school for the hour it would have taken to express their concerns for their future. A “forum” was held on campus instead. As usual here, the atmosphere was one more of celebration than outrage. But at least we were there.

The Sonoma Garden Park is one of Sonoma’s hidden treasures. It’s a working organic farm open to visitors, with a Saturday morning Harvest Market, workshops on sustainable farming, the Harry Potter summer camp and native plant nursery. Several garden plots are available for a nominal rental fee. The Park is located on 7th Street East, between E. Napa and Denmark Street. That’s farm country, what’s left of it, thanks in large part to our Urban Growth Boundary. Sonoma’s UGB will be up for renewal in 2020, and as you’ve probably heard, a fair bit of controversy has arisen around it...

They call us dreamers. We call them greedy. And never the twain shall meet, it appears. They have the power, the influence, the money. We have the 99 percent. In the midst of this intense divisiveness and endless arguments, we now have 5G. I learned a great deal about 5G this month. First, I attended a workshop presented by Sonoma Neighbors for Safe Tech, in which attorney and activist Debra Tachover spoke at length about the health effects of all forms of electromagnetic radiation, and how 5G will increase them. The evidence she presented, thousands of studies by responsible organizations, was compelling.

Possessing some of the finest hummable songs in musical theatre, My Fair Lady has charmed audiences since 1956, and sometimes been called “the perfect musical.” But anyone who sings “I Could Have Danced All Night” in the shower knows how deceptively difficult Frederick Loewe’s score can be, especially with that high note at the end. Fear not, the production at Sonoma Arts Live has Sarah Wintermeyer as Eliza, who will regale you with her superb delivery of all those “Loverly” songs, with a voice of liquid gold and her spunky charm.

It’s happening, and it’s horrid. Not only immigration but unconstrained climate change. Plans to bomb Iran’s nuclear plant. An illegal settlement in Palestine to be named Trump Heights. Starvation in Yemen. Poisonous fracked gas now called “Freedom Gas” in a recent DOE press release. And 5G cell phone networks on our horizon. And there’s more…

Emily Dickinson was an extraordinary woman who had the courage to live as she liked, regardless of expectations. “The Belle of Amherst” celebrates her story through the voice of a single actor, portraying fifteen different characters. It is a quiet, intimate play; the poet interacts directly with the audience, even offering them her famous cake. She reminisces about childhood antics, lost love and her passion for nature. Starring Jennifer King.
