Schulz-Sonoma County Airport -- a crucial hitch that could delay the return of commercial air service.

Along the scenic Russian River, where mellow practically was invented, about the only time folks find time to worry nowadays is when it rains. And when it doesn't. The problem isn't so much the floods that seem to regularly wash over Monte Rio, Guerneville and other quaint towns in this redwood-and-whitewater resort area 60 miles north of San Francisco. The real problem is with the City of Santa Rosa--and its sewage.

In a sting Thursday, police contacted dozens of women who advertise on the Web. Police set up appointments to meet the women in Santa Rosa. A team of nine officers cited and released 19 men and women on suspicion of prostitution and pimping, said Sgt. Steve Fraga. "If we had the resources, we could have done more," he said.

Modern California remains a series of geographic enclaves, each one a cultural universe of its own. The differences between these enclaves pop up everywhere, even down to the way they bestow celebrity. In the Bay Area, for example, it is now possible to achieve some level of fame by growing vegetables. If you come from an enclave outside the Bay Area--Los Angeles, say--you are probably not familiar with the concept of fame through vegetables.

A quarter-cent sales tax increase that would go to Santa Rosa's police and fire departments has just enough voter support for approval, according to a poll conducted by the city. The poll of 600 Santa Rosa residents indicated 66% of probable voters would support a sales tax hike if it were used to maintain police and fire services and reduce traffic congestion. For it to pass, such a measure would require approval by two-thirds of those voting.

A Santa Rosa woman could reel in major endorsement dollars over a whale of a fish story. Leaha Trew has a picture of a bass she caught that is estimated to have weighed in at nearly 23 pounds. She caught the giant fish last August in Sonoma County's Spring Lake, then released it. But her son took a picture before she threw it back. Now the bass is being considered for the all-time world heavyweight title for largemouth bass by the International Game Fish Assn.

Officials scrambling to find a place to dump some of Sonoma County's garbage think the answer may be the railroad. The public North Coast Rail Authority, which for years has struggled to revitalize an unused rail line, sees garbage as a steady source of potential revenue. The refuse would be loaded on freight trains and sent to desert landfills. The concept is preliminary and among many options under consideration for the county's long-term garbage disposal plan.

Within five years, hikers may be able to walk along the ocean from Sea Ranch to Bodega Bay as a 40-mile stretch of the California Coastal Trail emerges along the Sonoma County coast. It also may be possible to walk along 20 miles of inland meadow and forest trails from the coast to Occidental before 2010. The trail is being expanded through a series of land acquisitions by the county Open Space District and funding pledges by the state Coastal Conservancy.

Teachers assigned to watch the swimming pool during a field trip to a Windsor water park where a seventh-grader drowned Tuesday were specifically advised to keep watch for students who might be unable to swim, according to a memo released Thursday by Santa Rosa City Schools. "Scan the bottom of the pool FREQUENTLY," the two-page memo said. "Watch for wall crawlers -- students who cannot swim, but crawl down the wall to the deep end, also watch for roughhousing."
