Angwin Sign
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.

First vineyard abutting PUC campus
In 2002, the Pacific Union College Board of Trustees adopted a policy of selling hundreds of PUC acres for housing, vineyards and wineries. The policy soon thereafter produced a proposal for 580 houses in Angwin.
When that, and subsequent proposals, went down the drain, the promotional emphasis shifted to agricultural lands. The college's real estate broker produced a brochure touting the potential of 600 acres in Mill Valley for vineyards and boutique wineries. Mill Valley is east of the airport, kind of out in the boonies.
However, it turns out that the first parcel sold for vineyards comes up to the PUC property line, and only a short distance from two small dormitories in the woods. The high visibility of a vineyard immediately adjacent PUC will come as a shock to some Adventists and conservationists.

Meanwhile, word on the street is that PUC has reached agreement with another developer for a sale expected to finalize in February. No disclosure about who that would be, or the size and location of the parcels, or whether it will be developed into housing, commercial, or more vineyards. A mystery.
The 12 years since the monumental 2002 decision has produced numerous lot line adjustments to make parcels more acceptable to prospective purchasers, controversial reports about the actual value of the college's acreages, and ongoing opposition to college plans by a conservation group, Save Rural Angwin.
