Willows resident Ester Bugna gave us a heads up about fellow Willows resident Manfred Kopisch’s recent rafting trip from 280 to Cooley Landing; check out the video posted on YouTube.
Ester added: “Being an 80 + year-old native resident, the creek holds many special memories…Besides wading in water which was there all summer long, I recall a tragic drowning of a child c. 1950, the numerous chards of Stanford Memorial Church mosaics from the ’06 Earthquake some of which were placed in patio cement. I have a piece in my rock/mineral collection. And I have vivid memory of the 1997/98 flooding which subsequently prompted the formation of the SFCJPA [which is holding a public meeting tonight.
