Precious Cargo: CA Indian Cradle Baskets & Childbirth Traditions

Sonoma County Museum
425 Seventh St., Santa Rosa
(707) 579-1500
Click here for details

Show runs through: June 1, 2014. Tickets: $7/Adults, Free/Members & Children under 12.

For centuries, California Indian people have relied on cradle baskets as a way to carry their infants & keep them safe. However, in addition to their functional attributes, they also play a role in shaping a child's character & directing his or her future. Today, renewed cultural pride among California Indians is finding expression in the creation & gift-giving of traditional cradle baskets. Many individuals are sharing their knowledge about the gathering, sorting & weaving techniques required to make cradle baskets. This exhibit represents their story & the stories of all those who've play with, carried, or occupied a cradle basket of their own.

The exhibition is on loan to the SC Museum & was organized by the Marin Museum of the American Indian. In 2014, SCM will host basket workshops & a series of lectures around the theme of the exhibition.

Local Homes Sought for Sonoma State International Students

Would you like to experience another culture while providing a place for an international student to live?

The Sonoma State American Language Institute (SSALI) is looking for homestay families who would like to share their homes with international students who are studying English in the SSALI program. Families should live within biking, walking, or a bus route from SSU in Rohnert Park or Cotati.

Students are seeking a home where they can be part of a family, learn about American culture & practice their English.

At SSALI, 4 sessions are held throughout the year: 2 summer sessions of 5-weeks each & spring & fall semester (15 weeks each).

The remaining dates for 2013-2014 are:
Summer 1 (2014): 5/29-7/3
Summer 2 (2014): 7/10-8/14
Fall 2014: 9/4 – 12/19

SSALI students come from all over the world but the majority come from Asia. A sizeable number also arrive from Saudi Arabia & South America. Generally, the students are between the ages of 18-25. Most study English for 1 or 2 semesters, although some have been known to stay for as long as 2 years.

Students pay homestay fees directly to the family & there are 2 housing options. The most popular is the homestay option in which the student pays $700 each month & receives 16 meals each week, a private bedroom & full use of the laundry facilities. Utilities are included.

The student can also choose the "room only" option in which the student pays $550 each month & must buy and cook his/her own food. Even with this plan, the student is part of the family & is included in family activities. Applications from potential home stay families should be submitted several months in advance.

For more information, contact Debra Crow, International Student Coordinator, Sonoma State American Language Institute, debra.crow@sonoma.edu, (707) 664-2742.

Charles M. Schulz Museum Exhibition Starry, Starry Night

Starry, Starry Night, which runs through April 27, 2014, features 40 Peanuts comic strips, an interactive constellation board, a planet walk & indoor telescope viewing.

Charles Schulz’s nighttime vistas include some of his most dramatic, beautiful & evocative strips. Schulz created the majority of Peanuts’ nocturnal scenes during the first 25 years of the comic strip & then returned to the theme late in his career. These strips were some of the most difficult to produce due to the heavy inking needed to create the night sky. The result, however, are comic strips that encapsulate the awe, wonder & sometimes overwhelming loneliness of looking out at the universe.

Drought Town Hall Meetings Schedule

http://www.sonomacountywater.org
(707) 547-1927

Sonoma County Residents, Agriculture & Businesses are encouraged to attend one of 4 upcoming drought town hall meetings scheduled this month to learn about the drought, receive an update on water supply conditions & hear from local organizations about water conservation rebate programs. Several dry years combined with the driest year of record in 2013 have culminated in drought conditions across the region. The meetings are co-hosted by the Sonoma County Water Agency, Sonoma Resource Conservation District, County of Sonoma, Cities of Cloverdale & Healdsburg, members of the Sonoma-Marin Saving Water Partnership, including the City of Santa Rosa, City of Rohnert Park, City of Petaluma & the Town of Windsor. Meeting participants can expect to meet water supply, conservation & regulatory officials to discuss the drought & ongoing efforts to provide relief to our community. Informational tables will provide conservation materials, such as water wise gardening brochures, applications for water use efficiency rebate programs & much more.

"Despite the rain, our region still faces a drought due to the lack of rainfall over the past several years," said Water Agency General Manager Grant Davis. "We ENCOURAGE ALL Residents, Businesses & the Agricultural Community to attend a town hall meeting closest to you to learn more about the drought & how to beat it. Local agencies will be at each meeting to provide critical drought relief assistance and conservation rebate program information. There are tools available to help our community beat this drought that will be made available at these meetings."

While the recent rain has helped increase storage levels in local reservoirs, Lake Mendocino remains below 50% of water supply capacity & Lake Sonoma's water supply capacity is holding steady at around 74%; both well below average storage levels for this time of the year. Below is current rainfall data to date:
