Light Reduction Program– Several neighbors have suggested that we turn on our front lights to combat the changes that the reduction of lights might bring to the neighborhood. The Neighborhood Watch Program has always suggested that light is a deterrent to crime. Porch lights can be put on timer, they can also be motion activated and, of course, there’s also solar lights.

Found Dog: We found a nice little dog today in Railroad Square. He seemed to be some kind of Corgi/Chihuahua mix. Friendly. Short and squat with a caramel coat. Was wearing a red collar. He is now at the Sonoma County Animal Care and Control hoping to be found by his owners. Drop us a line if you think he’s yours so we know he’s been reunited. Thanks, Tim Sarter For more info in this dog, Click here!
