Burglary on B Street!

Neighbors on B Street take note. A home was broken into last Wednesday and several laptops and other items stolen. There were also reports from homeowners on B Street that the gates to their backyards had been opened and people were ringing door bells and taking off if the door was opened. Please report any suspicious activity to the Police Department at 528-5222 or online at: http://ci.santa-rosa.ca.us/departments/police/report/Pages/default.aspx

Those of you who signed up for Nextdoor last week know about this crime already as the homeowner posted it on Nextdoor.com. We encourage everyone to sign-up for this real-time neighborhood communication tool.  To sign up visit: https://nextdoor.com/invite/degupzcyzfueqjpvfasc


On a lighter note, the Sonoma County Museum still has tickets available for this event:

Sonoma Women: Life in Mexican California

Thursday, February 27, 2014, 7:00pm

PLEASE NOTE: We will be holding the lecture at the North Bay USF facility in Santa Rosa, 416 B Street,  just a couple blocks from the Museum.


Drs. Rose Marie Beebe and Robert Senkewicz of Santa Clara University speak on women in Mexican California.  Before the gold rush, the Sonoma area was the extreme, far northern frontier of California. The experiences of three different women of this area, Isidora Filomena, the wife of the important indigenous chief Sem-Yeto (Solano), Rosalía Vallejo,  younger sister of prominent land owner Mariano Guadalupe Vallejo, and Josefa Carrillo, wife of American trader Henry Delano Fitch, throw important light on everyday life in Mexican California in general and this area in particular. Each of them was interviewed by the staff of historian Hubert Howe Bancroft in the 1870s and their testimonios offer a unique perspective on the strengths, weaknesses, and tensions that animated this area before it became a part of the United States. Beebe is a Professor of Spanish Literature and Senkewicz is a Professor of History.

Museum Members $7.50 / General $10.00
