|I'm glad to see the Calendar stuffed full of events. Except... I can't seem to find reference to anything closer than about 70 miles from where I live (Guerneville). Berkeley can be a cool place, and it has a lot to offer, but it ain't home, and it ain't local. Don't get me wrong; I'm not objecting to what's appeared on the Calendar, but rather, to the complete lack of events to which I might ride my bike.|

First, we want to make it clear that although David works for Monitor Publishing, we didn't ask him to write in. |
Through an agreement with the Bay Area Progressive Calendar, we are now including all of their listings. We'd like, however, to see announcements of local fundraisers, organization announcements, events, and anything that anyone would like to contribute. But that's up to you; let us know what's happening! The calendar form is easy to fill out, or you can e-mail or fax a press release , as explained at the top of the calendar page.
Remember that the Albion Monitor calendar is always free and open to everyone.
|I love what you are doing. It seems a labor of love. Sorry that you've gotten no response. Its the best (information, quality of writing) that is being put out in Sonoma County. I hope you are able to sustain your interest while you build a base which takes time in this business.|
NAFTA's Corporate Con Artists is an excellent article, and should be
plastered over the front page of every newspaper in the US, Cananda and
Mexico, as well as making it to prime time network news. Of course, a
story like this never will, as it would be, in effect, "biting the hand
that feeds them."|
Hurray for your policy of no advertising....only a news resource that doesnt accept advertisingcould publish something like this with (financial) impunity!
I want to welcome Mark Lowenthal aboard the Monitor. I have heard many of
his lectures at the SRJC, and have enjoyed his articles in the Sonoma
Independent (a misnomer. unless you count turkey recipes and whine-ing
wineries as journalism). The Monitor is by far a better space for
investigative reporters and in-depth analysis of political polecats. Thanks
also for the Buchannan Buccaneers story about how sweet Pat is going to form
a righter than right-wing party of his own. Go Pat! Let him draw all the
venomous votes out of the Republican party and we'll see how much sting they
Keep whistling in the dark, guys....Your tunes shed light in this corner.
A continuing Fan,|
|I've just signed on to monitor.net a few days ago and have begun exploring. I was delighted to find your news magazine and the variety of topics, especially West County news. It's refreshing to find local topics that we can immediately relate to. Its very easy to get lost in the WWW and feel like a small droplet in the ocean. I shall visit regularly, keep up the good work and keep your ears open for local issues.|
Some of our best stories about Sonoma County have come from reader's tips. Is there something that we should explore? Let us know! |
