About Angwin...
Angwin is a community of about 3000 residents on Howell Mountain. We are in a coastal range of northern California, about 70 mi. north of San Francisco.
The Village ranges from 1600 to 2200 ft. elevation, overlooking the scenic Napa Valley. It is surrounded by vineyards and forests.
Many Angwin residents work for Pacific Union College, a liberal arts college with a national reputation, or the nearby St. Helena Hospital.

The story is in the statistics
A few weeks ago, we introduced viewers to our two new advertisers. But we didn't provide much information about them, so here it is. Just look at these numbers.
Angwin Dental..39 years, 10,000 patients
Dr. Robert Williams pioneered dental service in Angwin. He opened his office here 39 years ago. Since then he has served more then 10,000 patients. Tally those two figures and they spell one word...Experience. And a lot of Angwin people to whom he gave healthier teeth and brighter smiles. The other person on the Angwin team is Dr. Susan Fjarli, who came aboard in 2003, after serving as president of the Multnomah Dental Society and clinical professor at Oregon Health Sciences University. Another cheerful, competent person. Dr. Williams opened a Napa office in 1985, which his son, Dr. Jeff Williams, took over 10 years ago. Building a family tradition.
Advanced of the bunch
Angwin old timers, and some not so old, travel to Napa where Geoffrey Calkins and Elizabeth Gilson listen to our hearing problems and get us listening better. They face challenges and find solutions. In 2010, the independent "Bay Area Consumers' Checkbook" took a survey of 45 hearing aid centers throughout the Bay Area. Advanced Instruments hit the top of the list in six categories. Look at these scores:
Promptness of service
Quality of products
Variety of products
Ease of testing products
Overall quality
What can we exclaim about these two professional offices which have racked up years of service and statistics like these?
Something like "Wow!" comes to mind.

Tom Stubbs leaving Angwin
Tom Stubbs
Angwin has lost its popular school administrator Tom Stubbs. Stubbs, principal of the Howell Mountain Elementary School, has won an enviable promotion to superintendent of the West Marin County District. He will be running the high school and four elementary schools there. About 600 students, compared to 130 in Angwin's one public school.
Tom's office will be in Tomales, overseeing the schools there and in three other communities, Pt. Reyes, Bodega Bay, and Inverness.
This is a largely rural region, famous for its large dairy farms, the beautiful Pacific coast, whale watching and a local herd of elk. A very different environment.
Tom has served us well for 10 years and deserves this promotion. We wish him well.

Balloons in Angwin
Balloons landed several times last week in the center of Angwin. Possibly because the Napa Valley was invisible through the fog and passengers were taken to Pope Valley instead. Here is one that dropped down on the grassy lawn of Brookside Apartments, the PUC student housing subdivision.
The passengers might have missed the scenic Napa Valley, but they would have seen the vineyards of Pope Valley, our forested range stretching all the way to Mt. St. Helena, and the campus of Pacific Union College in the exceptionally beautiful natural environment of Howell Mountain.
