  • The Heroes Next Door

    Firefighters are our heroes. They face the menace of raging wildfires while others seek safety, and every day, they assist individuals experiencing traumatic events. Incredibly, many firefighters perform their duty without pay or the promise of pensions.

The Addictive Nature of Sugar

Several times during the day when I meet with patients, I find myself teaching them how to read labels. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Americans age 6 and older consume about 14 percent of their total daily calories from added sugars. So many packaged foods contain hidden sugars, such as energy drinks, fruit juice, sweetened coffee and teas, granola bars, salad dressing, bread and yes, even fat-free yogurt.

Homeless on the Joe Rodota Trail

The website for Sonoma County Regional Parks describes the Joe Rodota Trail as “an 8.5-mile paved, off-road trail linking downtown Santa Rosa and Sebastopol . . . a popular route for cyclists, walkers and runners.” But that bucolic description is sobered by this warning on the same website: “Joe Rodota Trail users are advised to use an alternate route between Stony Point Road and South Wright roads due to safety concerns caused by illegal encampments along that trail section.”

Transparency and Health Care Consumerism

Ask anyone who has suffered a serious injury or illness, or is living with a chronic condition necessitating continual and considerable expense, how they feel about the state of health care in the U.S. The inner workings of our health-care delivery system remain a mystery.

Anaba Wines

During the heat of summer, gusts and gales from Petaluma often sweep over the Carneros region in Sonoma. As they encounter warm surface temperatures on steeper slopes and drift upward, they transform into anabatic winds, a gift from Mother Nature that usually occurs on clear sunny days. The name anabatic stems from the Greek word anabatos, which means moving upward. These anabatic winds are the inspiration and magic behind Anaba Wines.

Too Early to Approve Another SMART Sales-Tax Extension

We trusted in our political leadership’s claims that the Sonoma-Marin Area Rail Transit (SMART) would reduce our congested highways, eliminate unnecessary greenhouse gases and be a spectacular and popular new mode of transportation.

Come February, most of the rah rah rahs and can-do attitudes of New Years resolutions are kicked to the wayside. Except for one, according to research from market analysis company, IWSR, which cited in a 2019 roundup, that 52 percent of U.S. surveyed consumers want to reduce alcohol consumption.
