January, 2016: The Lake Berryessa News Print Edition Returns From Cyberspace and the Data Cloud!

I've started publishing a paper edition of The Lake Berryessa News again (See pages below). The January 2016 has been printed and distributed. It is available at various locations in Winters, the Markley Cove store, Steele Canyon Saloon & Pizza, on the Berryessa Highlands mailboxes, at the Spanish Flat Country Store and Deli, Turtle Rock, and the Pope Valley Store.

I've also created a new detailed map of the Greater Lake Berryessa Region available by clicking the map icon on the left.

I hope you enjoy it. I will be publishing monthly through March, then twice per month for the summer recreation season. I'll also be accepting paid advertising. See rate structure description below and contact me at pkilkus@gmail.com to start advertising.
