Analy High School

West County High School will return to being called Analy High School as early as next year. Last night, West Sonoma County Union High School District’s board of trustees voted 4-1 to no longer consider rebranding West County High School, which was supposed to be a temporary name after Analy and El Molino merged as the district seeks to address a growing budget deficit.

Farming Costs Rising

Rising fuel and fertilizer costs are impacting California farmers and, over time, could create uncertainty in the food market. Diesel fuel for tractors is up $1.25 per gallon since last year, costs for agricultural aircraft used for crop applications have tripled since 2020, and supply chain issues are spiking costs of nitrogen fertilizers. Farmers say the trend could affect supermarket produce selections if they need to alter planting decisions due to costs. (photo courtesy Farm and Dairy)


Giving Tuesday

Today is Giving Tuesday, a big day for Non-Profit organizations worldwide. The theme of Giving Tuesday is "Unleashing the Power of Radical Generosity", and gives non-profits a way to funnel their fundraising into one-day under one-banner, last year raising almost $2.5 billion in the US. Giving Tuesday is a philanthropic change from Black Friday and Cyber Monday. (photo courtesy GiveSmart)
