Welcome to the good doctor Paracelsus Magnus, an itinerant 16th century European physician and scholar. He will be submitting a cosmological letter to the Kenwood Press four times per year at the solstices and equinoxes to provide astrological guidance relevant to the Valley of the Moon. Don’t try to google him, he didn’t/doesn’t actually exist. Paracelsus Magnus is a pseudonym for a real local scholar and sage who prefers to let the fictional good doctor speak for him. His first submission for the spring equinox is on page 7 of this issue.
We’re celebrating many anniversaries in the Valley of the Moon this month. Les Pascal turns 3, Comida para Todos – Food for All, turns 1, and Laurel Glen Vineyard turns 40. Read all about it on page 1 and in the Business Beat on page 10.
Have you noticed the refurbished newspaper box by Palooza at the Kenwood Village Shopping Center? It’s all spiffed up and very green thanks to Marshall’s in Glen Ellen.
We’ve partially moved into the new Kenwood Press offices at 13700 Arnold in the middle of “downtown” Glen Ellen. We keep somewhat sporadic office hours and we’re still actually putting the paper together in our basement on Warm Springs Road, but if you are driving through Glen Ellen and you see the door open, stop in and say “hello”! Of course we require masks and practice social distancing. We should be fully moved in and operational in early April.
A special thank you to our advertisers. If you’d like to advertise, send us an email to [email protected] Design services to help you create your ad are included in our low advertising rates. The Kenwood Press is distributed to every mailbox and PO box in Glen Ellen, Kenwood, and Oakmont.
We heard through the grapevine that people are wondering who we are and why we bought the newspaper. As soon as we figure that out, we’ll let you know. Let’s just say, it’s a labor of love. We’ve always enjoyed reading the Kenwood Press, and we’re honored to keep it going.
Thank you for your support. We hope you enjoy this issue.
