As you may know we've been supporting Healdsburg teacher Greg Costa who was put on administrative leave. This was done straight out without speaker to Mr. Costa first which is a direct violation of Labor Law. Mr. Costa is a 30 year veteran and well loved teacher. His students held a walkout demanding he be returned to their classroom. We've started a letter writing campaign and we need your help.

Local dispatcher named best in America for ‘saving countless lives’ during 2017 wildfires

How unlikely it seems that the fire-and-ambulance dispatcher judged to be the best in America would also be a locally esteemed skunk whisperer.
