Custom Beachfront Home Just Listed For 2.7M in The Sea Ranch

When the weather gets hot, I look forward to days at the beach and trying to keep it cool. While I generally view beachfront homes as a vacation getaway, this newly built, custom home in the Sea Ranch makes me want to move in full time. Designed by Builder/Architects John Schmidt, Tomas and Don Olsen, this house takes its cue from Don Olson’s International Style aesthetic.

Hip Hop Artist Chance Receives Humanitarian Award, Advocates Marijuana

Not everyone has the honor of being introduced by the former first lady Michelle Obama, but that’s what happened when Chance the Rapper got on stage to accept his award for Best New Hip Hop Artist, as well as the BET Humanitarian Award, at the BET awards in Los Angeles last weekend.

6 Recently Listed Forestville Homes Near the Russian River

As the summer heats up – and it has definitely been heating up – homebuyers in Sonoma County may be looking for a house that helps them escape the heat. The disparity of temperature may be too great when home locations are closer to the coast, but the five to ten degree difference often found in the woods around the Russian River may be just about right.

Nurse’s strike in Petaluma

This petition was filed over a year ago, and is a result of their belief that the CNA is no longer an effective union to address their concerns, and that their ability to advocate on behalf of patients has been blocked. The assembled protestors set up a mock wedding to symbolize their issues with the partnership between the CNA and St.

Bikes become the equalizer at UCP day camp

Friday, June 16 was the final day of the weeklong UCP (United Cerebral Palsy) of the North Bay Bike and Swim Camp held at SSU. The main gym on the SSU campus was filled with bicycles of all sizes, and parents with smiles that stretched from ear to ear. While this sounds like a run of the mill summer camp; it’s anything but.

Marijuana Recycling? That’s One Way To Go Green…

Did you ever wonder what happens to all that marijuana police confiscate when they go on raids? In Denver, Colorado they recycle it. A1 Organics – a recycling plant in Commerce City, Colorado, does a brisk business recycling wood pallets, logs, garden materials…and marijuana. “There’s quite a bit that comes in,” said Kevan Northup, who runs operations for the company’s Commerce City location, “Two or three years ago we would do one grind every three or four months,” Northup explained.

2.9M Historic Victorian Home/Hotel in Geyserville Just Listed

I had a completely different property in mind for today, but I can never resist the pull of a well restored- and well maintained- historic home. While Craftsmen homes are my all time favorite, this 1872 Eastlake, stick style Victorian took precedence over anything I had written earlier in the week.

Santa Rosa – second least expensive in Bay Area to rent? What you get for 1,500 or less

Though we’ve already looked at home rentals in the range of what someone would pay for a mortgage at the current Sonoma County median, I recently saw that Santa Rosa is ranked as the 2nd least expensive city to rent in the Bay Area this month, tying with Napa.

Forget That Stoner Stereotype; Study Shows Marijuana Users More Successful

We all know the tired marijuana stereotypes: users are labeled lazy, stoners, shiftless, hippies. But a recent study has found that, surprise! , cannabis consumers are overall more successful, have higher incomes, and are more satisfied. This study focused on marijuana consumers in both California and Colorado, two states where marijuana has been legalized for recreational use.
