Day light Savings means clocks have moved forward 1 hour, have you changed your clocks? The March issue of the West End Neighborhood News should be delivered to your door this weekend.

Car theft update: Good news. I spotted our Previa in the Coddingtown lot and was able to recover it. Was an anxious 40 minutes waiting for the police to show.Minor damage and it needs cleaning as it smells like it wa being lived and smoked in, but we are thrilled to have it back!  Horrible about all the break ins. Wonder if it is the same person?  – Tim

“Rocky” Update From Sonoma County Animal Care: Thank you to all of you who have contacted us about Rocky, the dog that was beaten (on Wilson St.) on Saturday, March 6. He is doing reasonably well under the circumstances. Earlier this week our veterinarian, Dr. John Strathman, wired Rocky’s jaw to repair a fracture, and removed several broken teeth. Rocky may need a root canal to save one of his canines. Dr. Strathman predicts a full recovery. Rocky the Dog  If you would like to make a donation to the Sonoma County Animal Shelter, Animal Welfare Fund on behalf of Rocky, please call (707) 565-5407, or go to How Can You Help ? Donations are greatly appreciated and are tax deductible.

Would you  like to Garden with your neighbors? Hello Fellow West Enders- I am looking to grow some food this year and wanted to know if anyone wanted to coordinate / collaborate. yours in design- Robin Stephani 350 Garden Challenge A “Garden Wheel” is a group of neighbors and friends that comes together to create and nurture food gardens and community, and to share locally-grown food, labor, information and resources. Typically, members take turns working on garden projects that rotate (like a wheel) from household to household. Eventually all members benefit from hands-on support in their own food garden and the sharing of information, resources and fun.
