SF Chronicle gives some well deserved love to Steve and Kate today: "“Steve came to me with his idea, and I said it would never work, the community was too small,” recalls Malcolm Margolin, the publisher of Heyday Books in Berkeley. “He proved me wrong. But it turned out he wasn’t buying a bookstore, he was opening a community center.”" Shop local! (thx MM)http://www.sfgate.com/books/ar

A nice holiday story: "A tiny shopping shuttle that has made a big difference to seniors in rural communities including Point Reyes Station and Inverness got a new lease on life this week as Marin transit officials renewed grant funding. Kathy Hart of Point Reyes Station told transit officials the shopping shuttle has been life changing for her and others, including a man she said emerged from virtual seclusion to join others on shuttle trips."http://www.marinij.com/marinne
