Thank you to Lenore Rutherford of the Union Democrat for writing such a kind and generous profile of me, and for capturing our family's love of the community and, especially, the Sierra Waldorf School in our move to Sonora. Sonora and our surrounding communities may not realize just how lucky we are to have a real daily local newspaper (in print since 1854!) - so many major newspapers struggle to survive now, and when we lived in Los Angeles, I heard of one paper outsourcing its local government reporting to writers in India! (Presumably they sent them transcripts of town hall meetings.) Anyway, thank you, Lenore - and thanks to the Union Democrat...and to Sonora and the Motherlode, for making our family feel so welcome.
