Community: Advisory of increased package thefts.  The Santa Rosa Police Department has received numerous reports of package thefts from the doorsteps of residences over the past month. Although there have been reports of these thefts all over Santa Rosa, the highest frequencies of occurrence have been in the downtown and Julliard Park neighborhoods. The SRPD Property Crimes Unit has been working with victims and area residents to identify people responsible for committing these thefts, and help educate the public on ways to deter those committing these thefts, and lessen the possibility of becoming a victim. The Santa Rosa Police Department Property Crimes Unit has reached out to local and government delivery services to work together to report suspicious activities which are often associated with these types of thefts. For tips to lessen the chances of becoming a victim & some steps you can take to help keep your packages safe go to: https://local.nixle.com/alert/5549722/?sub_id=947091 Auditions Announced for “Anna in the Tropics” 6th Street Playhouse will be seeing adult actors for roles in the upcoming production of Nilo Cruz’s Anna in the Tropics, directed by Marty Pistone. Actors should prepare one dramatic monologue (classic, OK!). Anything along the lines of Tennessee Williams, Lorca or Chekhov is suggested. Please bring a headshot and resume to the audition. All roles available. Time & date: Saturday, December 19, 10:00 am – 4:00 pm & Sunday, December 20, 12:30 pm – 4:30 pm Where: Rehearsal Room at the 6th Street Playhouse, 52 West 6th Street, Santa Rosa, CA 95401 Fact: Fats, Oils, and Grease Should Never Go Down the Drain! To avoid a costly sewage back-up at your home or in your neighborhood, properly dispose of fats, oils, and grease. Collect liquid grease and oils in a sealable container and let it cool, wipe pans clean with a paper towel and put it in the trash. Scrape off excess food from pots, pans, and plates before rinsing them in the sink with cold water. Have a lot of cooking oil? Don’t throw it in the trash. Bulk oils should be recycled (e.g. household fryer oil). Several Sonoma County restaurants accept clean, liquid vegetable oil that is mostly free of any solids, meat scraps, or water. Check www.recyclenow.org and search “oil, cooking/grease” for a complete listing of locations.

Our many creeks are part of a rich and diverse system that provides water supply, wildlife habitat, flood protection, recreation and open space. Visit the Creek Week website at www.srcity.org/creekweek for events, times and locations. Safe House Program– Recently, neighbors have been accosted by a bearded white man driving a white car. One woman, out riding bikes with her young son, and one young teenage girl, out with her brother near the market, were followed by this man. We were discussing the incidents on the West End facebook page, and the idea came about to have safe houses. While safe houses are not the answer to the problem of predators, they are at least a way for neighbors in the West End to provide some peace of mind for each other. What the idea of safe house means is that if you or your children are followed by someone and are near one of these houses, you can go to them for help. People who sign up to be Safe Houses post a symbol on window or door that is visible from the street. The map displayed here gives an overview of what safe houses are on what streets. If you would like to be part of this effort, please send Carol Ciavonne your name and address via email. She will make sure you get a safe house sign to post on your house, and will update the map to show your house.
