Mike McGuire stopped in at Mattie Washburn Elementary School in Windsor to discuss his achievements and plans, and answer questions from constituents. The evening started off with Windsor Mayor Dominic Foppoli answering a few questions, primarily regarding the planned installation of a roundabout at the intersection at Windsor Road and Windsor River Road, in preparation for the arrival of the SMART train. Foppoli pointed out that since he owned a business near the intersection, he had actually been recused from any discussion or action on the roundabout, but several incorrect statements or misconceptions were corrected by Town Manager Ken MacNab. MCGuire then shifted into the spotlight, discussing both the various initiatives which had already been passed, and those he wished to attack in the coming session.

And, I've one of the few Democratic but also rural districts in the state." He went on to tout the state's strong economy, which represents 25% of the nation's Gross Domestic Product. It has the fifth largest economy in the world, and the Bay Area alone would rank 19th in the world economy, according to McGuire. However, he did point out some liabilities to the state's economic foundations, including the changes to the Affordable Care Act, which he said is costing the state approximately $450 million a year. He also cited unfunded pension liabilities and a lack of affordable housing. "Housing is our biggest liability, and since the fires it's worse," he said.

Ripe Rewards Peach season Gayle Okumura Sullivan Our first peach season in 2001 was our biggest harvest on record.

Once the season was over and we returned to San Francisco, I started working in the pastry department of Postrio, a beautiful restaurant with a grand sweeping stairway entrance, in the category of Stars, though a different vibe and location. It was a destination, a special occasion restaurant, a politician's hangout and a rock star favorite. I was very impressed with the entire operation. Bread was baked daily, stocks always simmering in the early hours, cooking done seasonally and top notch ingredients sourced both locally and internationally. Christine Law was the Pastry Chef at the time. Culinary Institute of America-trained, precise, serious and creative. It was great to work with her, creating seasonal menus, recipe testing, ingredient sourcing, plating, etc. All the work and preparation that goes into one dish. Remarkable really. I admire everyone that works in a restaurant. The commitment, organization, preparation, staffing and hard work that goes into serving great meals in a fast-paced and sometimes crazy environment is truly remarkable. One of our favorite recipes that we make here on the farm all summer long is a fresh peach pie. We try to eat dinner together whenever we can, like when growing up, and at the end of every meal is dessert. This recipe combines a bit of Postrio and some down home cooking. Nothing quite screams of summer like a peach, and the nice thing about this recipe is that you can make it all year long, with whatever fruit is in season.
