Editor, Index-Tribune:

Hope floats, or so the saying goes. Wine corks float, as do empty beer kegs.

Why not drink locally and at the same time help build a local community pool?

This could easily be done by asking our friends in the hospitality business to add a $1 corkage fee and a 50-cents-per-pint fee to all the wonderful wines and beautiful beers (many of them locally produced by our friends and neighbors), enjoyed here in this amazing town.

“Keep Sonoma Wet” could be a possible campaign slogan, or perhaps “Just Say No to a Dry Sonoma,” or “Raise a Glass for a Splash,” or “Take a Sip for a Dip.”
