Douglas Kenning helps us rediscover the Sicily once known by every schoolchild, the
Sicily that gloried in two Golden Ages, when twice she was a turning point of Western
Civilization. Uncover the Sicily of Homer’s Odyssey, the Sicily that taught civilization to the
Romans, and through them to us, and later helped to ignite the Renaissance
David McCuan introduces a “three presidencies” concept (domestic aﬀairs, foreign policy, and national security), utilizing the topics of elections and domestic politics and linking terrorism, political violence and the laws and conventions governing these issues. The intent is to join actions of the Trump Administration (domestic politics) with a discussion of broader changes in conﬂict, concentrating on terrorism (security changes).
This year’s Healdsburg Homes Tour features six historic homes exemplifying the preservation of Healdsburg’s architectural heritage for contemporary living. The core of the oldest home, built over 150 years ago, was a settlement era cottage. Two homes are Queen Anne Victorians. One was the recipient of the Museum’s prestigious Historic Preservation Award in 2008. The turn of the century bungalow built as one of the “Howard Cottages” might have been one of the first tract home in Healdsburg. Also see Craftsman homes, gorgeous gardens, and amazing interiors.
