Sonoma at its best; Sonoma at its worst.|


They say good things come to those who wait, and the Epicurean Connection is proving that theory in spades.

The local food and catering company of Sonoma resident Sheana Davis was recently honored with a Snail of Approval award from Slow Food in Sonoma County, a Healdsburg-based group that supports and promotes local farmers, locally sourced food and the traditions around them. Also awarded at an April 27 Slow Food event in Sebastopol were Sonoma’s Little Paradise Farm and Tallgrass Ranch.

“We are all quite excited and honored to be receiving the award,” said Davis, adding that the process to receive a Snail of Approval award is quite rigorous. “Lots of questions, transparency and guidelines.”

In its announcement of the awards, Slow Food in Sonoma County applauded the recipients for making “significant contributions to transform our food system to one that is good, clean and fair.”


Some of cinema’s greatest stories have been told about people stealing bikes: “Ladri di Biciclette”... “Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure”...

But Drue from Boyes Hot Springs isn’t looking for an Oscar, he’s just looking for his friend’s two-wheeler.

“So this chick hopped out of a big white truck walked up and stole my buddy’s Kona bike,” he posted on a neighborhood social media page. “Give the bike back.”

He believes it was a Ford F 250, white with a gray stripe along the bottom. A surveillance camera caught a photo of the alleged absconder. – Jason Walsh
