Letters to the Editor, Dec. 8 - 11

My wife worked tirelessly to try for improvement more than 10 years ago, and others before that.

Here’s my concern; nothing will continue to happen until there’s an even worse accident than the ones we’ve already suffered. (I have extremely experienced cyclist friends that have been taken out on Arnold). Then there will be much hand wringing, attention and concern, and maybe something will happen, but too late.

I don’t know if you know Steve Brumme, one of your more amazing constituents.

He has a long incredible story, but what’s relevant here is that he contracted polio earlier in life and currently commutes on a hand powered trike between Sonoma and Glen Ellen. I am painfully aware of my vulnerability on a narrow two wheeler out there, I don’t know if I would have the courage to risk it on three! I recently saw him out there and felt extreme exasperation toward you and your inaction on making this crucial link in our community safe!

Please bring me up to date on what is or isn’t happening to ensure our safety before the inevitable serious tragedy!

Letter of gratitude

EDITOR: Thank you, City of Sonoma, for the amazing November Freedom Week celebration to thank and honor our “heroes” from Kenwood to Schellville. Thank you poster and sign artists, merchants, musicians, school, community groups and volunteers whose participation helped make the week such a phenomenal success. It is heartwarming to see the many posters and signs and the inspirational light pole banners surrounding the Plaza; they visually capture what we are all feeling at this time in our beloved Valley of the Moon. The love and concern demonstrated in so many ways so many people in Sonoma Valley tells the story of a community that puts aside differences and comes together when tested. May the “love in the air” continue to be a presence in our lives as we rebuild and support one another and our resilient community. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
