Here are the top 5 stories in Healdsburg today:

  1. After several women reported to Healdsburg police earlier this year that their drinks had been doped up at Duke’s Spirited Cocktails on the square, the bar has joined a national organization called “the SAFE Bar Network”. In what appears to be a press release issued by the network, Duke owners confirm that they will receive “training and technical assistance on a variety of topics, including sexual harassment prevention, bystander intervention and liquor service”. They add that “thanks to these trainings, employees learn to identify and prevent harassment, as well as how to safely cut off customers and ask them to leave.” For context, the press release explains, “Duke’s Spirited Cocktails in Healdsburg recently opened an upscale cocktail bar and fine-dining restaurant next door. After an extensive interior renovation and a newly installed patio, Duke’s Cocktails decided it Wasn’t just the look of the bar, but the atmosphere as well.” You can read the full announcement here.

  2. The Healdsburg Police Logs for the Last Month — including a chaotic Fourth of July holiday weekend — are live on the police department’s website, in the “Bulletin” section. Last weekend also seems quite chaotic. Here are some of the most notable incidents reported so far in July: a flurry of calls from more than a dozen neighbors who reported rogue fireworks are set off around the city, plus a few who didn’t know about city-sanctioned high school officials and also reported them; the much talked about murder on Monte Vista Avenue and Lupine Road right after the fireworks; a 45-year-old woman cited for allegedly break into the L& Motel, where the city plans open a shelter soon; someone else reported breaking a “wooden sign on the back patio” of the shuttered Giorgio restaurant; some new graffiti; a few reports of “petty thefts” at Big John’s and Safeway malls, including one where a guy “stole a hot container of meat and fed it to his dog” at Big John’s; a dramatic argument near Memorial Bridge involving a woman shouting “he killed my cat” and “screaming murder”, who then disappeared into the bamboo forest; And much more.

  3. There was a house fire near Terrace Boulevard and the university Street over the weekend, according to nearby residents who saw firefighters put out the fire. And on that note — neighbors in Healdsburg are telling Nextdoor how impressed they are with the sheer number of calls local police and firefighters have taken. In the words of the inimitable Anne Goebel: “I have to yell at the Healdsburg Police and Fire Department. Over the past 3 days there have been so many emergency calls I can’t understand how our [heroes] managed to keep us safe. Every call required an immediate response [response] and requiring all kinds of skills. I feel so safe. They’re amazing.” (Facebook & Nextdoor & Nextdoor Groups)
  4. A die Eddinger family patriarchs of Healdsburg, U.S. Air Force veteran Clifford Charles “Jack” Eddinger, has died aged 89. the Sonoma County Fairgrounds Board of Trustees, Sonoma State University Board Member, SRJC Evening Professor, and numerous fraternal and charitable organizations,” according to his obituary. “After he retired, he moved to southern Illinois, where his wife has family.” Jack was known as a bit of a “Renaissance Man,” the obituary says – a “master carpenter, private pilot, cowboy, recreation and leisure destination developer and outdoorsman who loved to hunt and fish and just be in the mountains”. His surviving relatives in Healdsburg include Jerry and Mary Lou Eddinger. Her father was Healdsburg resident Charles Sidney Eddinger, her mother was Opal DeLisle, and her half-brother was John DeLisle. (Legacy.com)
  5. There is a new “beverage container recycling kiosk” opened in the parking lot outside Healdsburg City Hall on Grove Street. More information from the city: “Hours are Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the parking lot at 485 Grove St. Please separate glass, plastic, and aluminum, and do not crush cans. ” Our City Manager, Jeff Kay, previously announced at a City Council meeting last month that this “portable recycling center” would be a “pilot program” with “fairly limited hours”. Now you can go try it! (Nextdoor and City of Healdsburg)
