Conflicting Poll Numbers In California's U.S. Senate Race

ALSO: Gov. Brown has signed a package of bills intended to speed up graduation rates at California State University campuses.

Dear Member,
   As the New Year swings into full gear there are a number of projects underway at KRCB. Some you may have heard about, others may be new; all of them have been developed in conjunction with our community, responding to needs and opportunities.

   We mentioned last month the new emergency generator at KRCB. You’ll see the picture on page 7. Thanks to PBS and the community donors.'

   KRCB Live! is swinging into its second season with two great shows/recordings in January. We caught Darryl Purpose at Main Stage West in Sebastopol and worked with the Green Music Center to present and record Helen Jane Long later in the month. In response to community request that KRCB feature local and visiting artists in a way that is accessible to the entire community, KRCB is presenting these and other artists on television and on radio. And you’ll be able to check out the performances at krcb.org as well.

   As Cheryl Scholar has shared elsewhere in this issue, two other major undertakings are underway. Look for all the different ways we will be introducing and enjoying the poetry of Emily Dickinson in the month of March as well as the imminent launch of KRCB’s Health Connections Initiative.

   Really, loads going on and your support makes it happen. The community that works together, works.
