LAKE COUNTY – The Lake County Community Co-op celebrated its first anniversary with a potluck and free raffle on Dec. 13.


The Gratitude 2008 gathering hosted more than 30 co-op members and friends. The winners of the raffle received donated items from the co-op community including organic wine, cheese, bread, fresh produce and gift certificates for locally grown produce, as well as gift certificates for advertising with the co-op, all enclosed in the co-op’s newly designed recycled-canvas bags.


Co-op member and marketing communications designer, Kathy Wolden, expressed what a joy it was to give away the bags as gifts of gratitude.


The co-op had its first organizing meeting in January of 2008, from which arose a farmers’ market, buying club, monthly educational series, newsletter and the upcoming community garden at the senior center in Clearlake.


Co-founder JoAnn Saccato expressed wonder and delight at the gathering and quoted Meister Eckhart’s familiar saying, "If the only prayer you said in your whole life was 'thank you,' that would suffice."


The co-op, in celebration of their first anniversary, is launching a month-long membership drive in January for the buying club that includes their canvas bag ($11 retail value) free with a fully paid annual membership of $24.

SACRAMENTO – The Resources Agency will adopt a new name, the California Natural Resources Agency, on Jan. 1, 2009, to better reflect its primary mission.


Since 1961, the Resources Agency has been responsible for the safeguarding and stewardship of California’s precious natural resources.


From water and wildlife management and conservation to wildland fire protection, energy, ocean and coastal policy, land stewardship, climate change adaptation, sustainable living, and the promotion of outdoor recreation, the agency oversees most all of the state’s functions designed to protect California’s natural resources.


In July, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger signed Senate Bill 1464 (Maldonado) authorizing the Resources Agency to change its name to the California Natural Resources Agency.


The new agency logo will remain largely the same and the change will be phased in gradually as new supplies are ordered. In this way there will be little or no cost to the agency or any of its departments, boards or commissions save for any replacement costs that would normally be incurred.


The names of state agencies have been changed occasionally to better reflect their missions.


For example, California’s Business and Transportation Agency was changed to the Business, Transportation and Housing Agency, and the state’s Health and Welfare Agency was changed to the Health and Human Services Agency.


Similarly, in 2007 the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection changed its primary identification from CDF to CAL FIRE.


Many other states also have natural resources departments or agencies. The state of Washington has a Department of Natural Resources, which has responsibilities similar to California’s. This is also true in Wisconsin, Maryland, Colorado, Louisiana, Minnesota, Illinois, Alaska, Utah, and Michigan.


Pennsylvania and Nevada have Departments of Conservation and Natural Resources that house departments and programs much like those within California’s Natural Resources Agency.


California’s Natural Resources Agency is responsible for the state’s natural resource policies, programs and activities. It has 17,000 employees and oversees 25 departments, commissions, boards and conservancies. Visit the agency online at www.resources.ca.gov.
