On June 4 that promise came to fruition when the Sonoma County Board of Supervisors voted unanimously to pass a resolution that bans synthetic pesticide use on county property and county-owned land that's open to the public. The resolution also establishes no-spray zones in county-owned public use areas such as plazas, playgrounds, parks, sidewalks and county campuses like libraries. According to Hopkins the resolution directs staff to create a map and publish a list of all of the no spray zones by the end of the year. The resolution will also apply to See County Page 7 CPAC event on June 23 brings Pride Month to Cloverdaie By Zo~ Strickland "And since it is the 50th anniversary Reveille Editor of Stonewall, we thought it was a zoe@sonomawest.com good way to honor it.

Mike McGuire, along with air quality experts and education leaders announced the development of new statewide guidelines for school districts to use when communities are inundated with smoke from nearby -- or even far off-- wildfires at a press conference in Sacramento on June 4. According to a statement from McGuire's office, the guidelines were developed following months of meetings and negotiations between multiple statewide organizations and public agencies. The working group was formed following last year's devastating Camp Fire, which inundated dozens of communities with smoke and forced the cancelation of multiple school days all throughout Northern California. The initiative is called, "Get Smart about Wildfire Smoke: Clear Guidelines for California Schools." Over the past five years wildfires have destroyed tens of thousands of homes and covered significant portions of the state with smoke.
