Letter to readers: New Press Democrat debuts Wednesday
Beginning Wednesday, Press Democrat readers will see a new newspaper, with more local news in the front section and increased coverage of the outdoors and other topics.
Press Democrat reader survey shows what matters
The Press Democrat asked you what you value most in your local paper, and more than 1,500 of you answered.
Tell Us: What do you want from the future Press Democrat?
We started meeting with readers this fall to discuss some possible changes to the newspaper, and now we would like to invite you to join the conversation.
FROM THE EDITOR
Today marks the return of a separate local business section to The Press Democrat an additional three days a week.
Sally LaFranchi lived more than 90 years in Sonoma County, many of them on the same quarter-acre in Sebastopol where she died Sunday. She was two years old when her parents Stanley and Belle Jenkins moved in 1919 to the dirt road on the outskirts of Sebastopol that became Murphy Avenue.
