  1. New data from the Healdsburg Police Department shows that its 911 dispatchers are answering 95 percent of their calls within 15 seconds, with most answered in 10 seconds or less. According to Healdsburg Police Chief Matt Jenkins, a 15-second answer time is the standard set by the Governor's Office of Emergency Services. The local dispatch center answers an average of 2,700 emergency calls per year. (SoCo News)

  2. Today is National Bagel Day, and you don't have to travel far to get the best bagels in the county. Sonoma Magazine named our very own Healdsburg Bagel Company as one of the 12 best bagel places in Sonoma for its traditional New York-style bagels. In addition to their storefront on Healdsburg Ave., HBC's delicious bagels are also available at Big John’s Market and various local farmers markets or can be ordered for delivery right to your door.

  3. Cilla Marshall, a longtime member and volunteer of the Healdsburg Museum, has made a special addition to the Museum's local quilt collection by donating two quilts from the 1880s. Marshall's hand-embroidered silk quilts belonged to her late mother, Dorothea Batchelder, a former Healdsburg resident. The Healdsburg Museum hasn't held a quilt exhibit since the early 2000s, but with this donation and several other unique quilts acquired over the last two decades, it is considering planning another one soon.
