LOWER LAKE – The Lower Lake Schoolhouse Museum's Preservation Committee is holding a new fundraiser and offering for sale a historic Lake County map.


The 18-inch by 24-inch black-and-white map was created in the late 1800s as a marketing tool to encourage people to come to Lake County and buy real estate.


It features gorgeous drawings of the area's local architecture, and a map of the area showing the routes of the steamboats. Find areas of interest on the map still in existence today.


The map is a perfect gift for those who love Lake County, anyone who who loves art and architecture, and those hard to buy for family and friends.


Framed and unframed prints are available at Lower Lake Schoolhouse Museum and Wild About Books in Clearlake. Proceeds go towards the Lower Lake Schoolhouse Museum.


For more information call the museum at 995-3565 or Wild About Books, 994-9453.

LAKEPORT – Supervisor Denise Rushing will screen “Escape from Suburbia” at noon  Friday, Nov. 7, in the Lake County Board of Supervisors chambers, 255 N. Forbes St., Lakeport.


The 94-minute documentary film is a sequel to filmmaker Gregory Greene's 2004 “End of Suburbia,” which examines the effects of oil dependency and shortages on the suburban lifestyle in the United States.


It dramatizes the choices made by people facing issues of sustainability and prohibitive gasoline prices, and the fate of a Los Angeles community garden.


Admission is free, a brown bag lunch is suggested.
