Kathleen Stafford, mom of 3 teenage boys, businesswoman and Heather Elliott-Hudson, mom of 2 teenage boys and a 7 year old daughter, businesswoman both came together because of a very scary drug incident that happened and because of the incident prevalent drug use at our school was uncovered. Xanax being the current drug of choice, and mixing that with hard alcohol causes a “Toxic Cocktail” and is deadly.
Vowing that we can’t sit on this knowledge we have to get the word out. We then started PPAD who’s mission is to partner with parents, schools, and law enforcement to establish much needed drug education in our schools. 6th graders have the D.A.R.E program and high school freshman can elect to take Human Interaction which teaches lots of important information including drug education. Other than those 2 opportunities there is nothing that is taught on an on-going basis. Leaving our kids at a huge disadvantage when trying to maneuver through the very serious drugs that are widely available to them.
Congrats to Marin French Cheese & Sister Company Laura Chenel’s Earn Many Awards
Marin French Cheese’s Triple Crème Brie with Black Truffles took the coveted Best of Class Award for flavored soft-ripened cheese at the World Championship Cheese Contest in Madison, Wisconsin, March 7-9, 2016. The World Championship Cheese Contest, established in 1957, is organized by the Wisconsin Cheese Makers Association. This year, the organization saw a record 2,955 entries from 23 countries and 31 states.
Made with fresh cow’s milk and cream from neighboring Marin County dairies, Triple Crème Brie specked with Black Truffles lends itself to an irresistibly earthy aroma of mushrooms balanced with sweet cream, each year earning high distinctions in regional, national and international contests alike.
Other honors conferred to the Marin French team of dedicated cheesemakers during this recent competition include third place in the soft-ripened category for Petite Supreme, a high butterfat, extra-crème cheese with an aroma of sweet milk, and fourth place for Traditional Brie in the brie category.
Equally impressive, Sonoma-based sister company, Laura Chenel’s, received accolades once again this year for its creamy, fluffy-textured Original Chabis fresh goat cheese, garnering third place in the Soft Goat Milk Cheese category. The Orange Blossom Honey Log won its first award at the event, placing third in the Flavored Soft Goat Milk Cheese with Sweet Condiments category, while the Chabis Garlic took a fourth place prize in Soft Goat Milk Cheese category. Laura Chenel’s Original Buchette was recognized with a fifth place award.
Here is a short video from deli market news on the new Laura Chenel products:

The young ice cream entrepreneur’s, Neal Gottlieb, tenure on the popular reality show Survivor comes to an end. Tragically he had to ‘medical out’ of the game because of a precarious infection that developed on his knee (as well as his back). Neal jokingly called it Mount St. Neal, but the Survivor doctor didn’t find humor in it after looking at his two infections. The doctor was not as worried about the infection on his back as he was with the one on his knee. He said that because the oozing infection was so close to his knee joint that it could cause him permanent damage if it was not treated. So his journey ended on Survivor shortly after show host Jeff Probst showed up on the beach and declared Neal out of the game on a medical.
In this video Neal talks about his journey on Survivor and said it was “the greatest opportunity of my life”, and a dream that will be unfinished for him (hoping to be invited back to do it again). It was really cool to see our Petaluma company owner on Survivor. We wish for his full recovery and that we see him on Survivor again in the future.
