Almost upon us is Halloween and Cotati is not letting the virus ruin it for the local families.


Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is the annual campaign to increase awareness of this disease. Many of us have family and friends who have been diagnosed with breast cancer. Some are survivors, others we lost. It is always a devastating diagnosis. Women are faced with making health decisions to deal with their cancer. Choices are usually a lumpectomy or a mastectomy.

Kaaron Carver, a long time friend and past associate succumbs at age 71

Dear family and friends,

As you may know, my sister, Kaaron Mayre Carver, passed away on September 29, 2020 at her home in Mission Viejo, CA. Our cousin, Jack, was there with her, as well as her hospice caregiver. Jack, who was like a brother to Kaaron, was visiting from Kentucky. Kaaron had been fighting brain cancer for 23 months. She fought valiantly taking chemo and radiation treatments and almost made it. Now, she has gone home to be with God in heaven.


Community shouldn’t expect sports anytime soon

Last Wednesday’s announcement from Your Sports Network (YSN) and the California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) came as no surprise to Amy Alvarez, the first year Athletic Director at Technology High School.  Just like men’s soccer coach Fatima Worden, Alvarez was preparing for the worst. The worst came on July 20. 


Halloween at Tunnel of Terror

Halloween is on the evening of October 31 and observed especially by young ones in merrymaking and masquerading. Due to the COVID-19 much of the merrymaking will be on hold. All distancing and wearing face coverings will be extremely cumbersome if the little ones are wearing costumes.
