Stout also said that patterns around Truckee, Sparks and South Hills airports may also provide good models. The airport has received 228 complaints for the year- to-date through August. This represents a 178% increase over last year, which Stout attributed to “a perfect storm of factors: seasonal airline increases, a change in the airlinefleet mix, a larger Grove event and Napa runway construction.” Most of the complaints were in regardto jets versus . propeller powered planes. The two airlines most complained about were Alaska and Sky West airlines, Stout said. He said complaints of helicopters 'were steady and he hadn’t seen any spikes. The airport has a direct line residents can call to log the convenience of not having to drive to SEQ, but that she actually likes the sounds of the airplanes. She just wanted to call to give us good news instead of a complaint and, given that we need a local airport, we have no right to complain,” the form reads. ‘ Others are not as positive, such as the complaint from Leslie Kneeland. “A jet flew so low it p panicked her elderly mother; only used one swear word in her message,” the complaint form reads, which was followed by another complaint. “Just when she thought she had recovered from the noise of the earlier flight, another plane came in so low and loud she feels like she lives in a war zone. Mild profanity in this message.” The complaint was for a private jet that flew over at 6:30 a.m. at 1,330 feet, the records show. There were four other complaints filed by Kneeland in that timeframe. If complaints log the time actually flying too low, which is against FAA regulations. In addition to reviewing complaints, the airport is also expected to host Windsor Town Manager Ken McNabb and Councilmember Sam Salmon to give them a better idea of what the flight patterns look like, both from V the ground and in the air. Sunny outlook The airport will be installing new solar panels that will make the airport 100% green in terms of . energy use. The panels are expected to be installed by April, and should generate power by July. The power generated is expected to be in excess of what the airport needs, and it plans to sell the excess to the county jail. There is a concern that the panels may cause glare issues to the control tower at certain times of the day, which may change installation or force control to move to a different area at those times. z.

Continued from Page 1 to the core was the ' community,” she said. “People just, all kinds of different patrons of the shop have been saying ‘thank you for keeping the doors open,’ and I feel like the community really feels that need to keep it open.” The Kelders have been in‘ Cloverdale since 2001, and the Krugers have been in town since 2004. Between them, they have five daughters, have coached 16 seasons of Cloverdale Youth Soccer and serve on the board of four organizations — community and family is important to them. While none of the four have worked in the grocery retail industry before, the Krugers believe that all of their combined experience mixed with their deep community roots and experience in other areas of the food industry will makes for a winning ownership combination. Since 2005, the Kelders have run Cloverdale-based Kelder Engineering. Additionally, Peter is a master brewer and the chief operating oflicer of Bear Republic Brewing Company and Frances has 15 years of experience working in the wine industry. “I’m loving being part of the community in a different capacity,” Frances said. “I’ve coached soccer, I’ve been on boards, I’ve been in the community with the Alexander Valley Film Society and in different wine capacities. But this is so fun there’s this lovely old guy who comes in every day and he has a cup of coffee and we have a couple minute conversation every day — I just love that. I love seeing my friends and just chatting with people.” Going forward While the future of Dahlia & Sage will continue to be rooted in the sale of fresh food, the Krugers said that there are some additions in the works. “The core of the company is not going to change,” Frances said. “The mission of bringing fresh, local, organic food to Cloverdale — that’s not going to change. We’re going to hopefully bring beer and wine in, you will be able to get a glass of beer or a glass of wine here—no hard liquor—and those products will be locally sourced or organic brands that we know about and trust.” Farther down the road, they’re hoping that Dahlia & Sage will become a community hub when it comes to food education. Though nothing has been sorted out yet, the owners have plans to potentially host food education classes, community projects and food making seminars. ’ “We want to provide a venue for people to come together,” Peter said. “Whether that’s classes or things like author signings, this is a chance to give people a place to meet.” MEDIA: Units set up to be adjustable for school needs Continued from Page 1 The sessions will be led by local writer and illustrator Angela Larsen, who has served as a substitute teacher in media classes at Healdsburg High School. In addition to writing and illustrating children’s books, Larsen has also led workshops and worked on a web series. “I really wanted the kids to know that they could be ‘ telling their own stories,” Larsen said, discussing why she was interested in working on Full Circle Cinema. Larsen was drawn to working with the AVFS because of their appreciation for both films, and the process behind making them. . “I’m really excited for this program,” she said. “I think it will help expand some of the kids’ concepts of what they can accomplish.” r AVFS has already had a hand in childhood media literacy programs — it runs a summer film camp for kids in sixth to 12th grades. This program, however, will bring media learning directly to the classroom without a summer barrier. Both the film camp and Full Circle Cinema are aimed at improving media literacy, which Hecht pointed to as being a necessary skill for the workforce that today’s kids and teens will be entering into. “We don’t see this as. much as arts education as we do as skills development for the 21st century marketplace,” she said. . The program will vary depending on the classroom it’s in, Hecht said. The AVFS is looking at making it fully . adaptable so it can accommodate a variety of grade levels, class subjects and school needs. “In our research we’ve run into the fact that every school district is different, every school is different and every teacher is different,” she said. “What we’re trying to solve is the access to different tools.” In Healdsburg, the program is being adapted to accommodate Healdsburg High School’s no cellphone policy. “We’re really excited about coming up with a solution, and when I had this meeting with Healdsburg and realized we kind of hit a block with students not having accessto phones during class,” Hecht said. “Because the film society is nimble, we’re able to pivot and say ‘what do we need to bring into classrooms to make ' this still applicable and ’ available to students in this way?’ It speaks to the larger ethos of the film society.” As part of its youth outreach as a whole, the AVFS is trying to assist schools in getting arts coverage into the curriculum so that students are able to gain a deeper understanding of the skills that are integral to putting together a film. “When it comes to funding priorities in the county, and we’ve just seen so much tragedy in the last couple of years and the cost of living is so high, I think it is also important to sneak the arts in wherever we can because it’s such a critical component to being good humans and having our souls fed,” Hecht said.

They sit there and they enjoy themselves and a lot of them thank'us for putting it on. That’s my favorite part.” . Bike routes While ‘every bicyclist will start their cycling journey at Asti Winery, different bike routes extend to additional parts of north county as well. The 25k begins in Asti and extends north to Cloverdale, with cyclists heading down River Road and making a series of turns, eventually heading back via Cloverdale Boulevard and Dutcher' ~_,- Creek Road. The 50k follows a similar route, but the end of the ride extends farther west toward Lake Sonoma, before backtracking and heading to Asti through Dutcher Creek and Dry Creek roads. The 100k and 100 mile routes both dip farther south. In addition to the Asti- to-Cloverdale ride, bicyclists will be directed down West Dry Creek Road and on to Westside Road. From there, cyclists will ride to Dry Creek Road from Kinley Drive, continuing on a series of turns that will put them on Geyserville Avenue for a 5- mile stretch. The 100 mile differs slightly in the beginning from the 100k, as those looking for an extra challenge will head from the Lake Sonoma rest stop to Rockpile Road, tacking on an additional 25 miles of trip.
