Great interview! Coworking is definitely a growing phenomenon and not ready to slow down any time soon. It's been so positive in the ways it has helped small businesses develop themselves by providing them with a not-so-expensive office where collaboration is inspiring. I found a blog which centers around the coworking/startup world, they recently published 2 interviews with founders of coworking spaces. Very interesting, check it out here: http://www.shareyouroffice.com/blog-syo/
I suddenly had a memory of "going out to coffee" at the old El Rancho Tropicana, and wondered where the heck it went.....I guess that's Target now ?
You forgot another SR icon - the funky red oriental-shaped Chinese restaurant on Mendocino near what is now Adel's.
And Holliday Bowl (though Old Mexico and their bowla's are still there).
And downtown "the hill" that was leveled, next to "Wolf Coffee," where silly "alternative" teenagers hung out, some panhandling.
Jalisco's is still around, as is Lincoln Arts Center, and the good old Flamingo Hotel !!
How we lost Petrini's I cannot understand - I remember WE eves were the "meet-market."
And the funky old Molsberry's Market (A&B?) on Yulupa eventually became Food For Thought and now Whole Foods.
And Crystal's Corner on Yulupa is still there.....
**but alas, the "Milk-Stand" was torn down long time ago - I'd buy $.10 Jolly Ranchers there after school.**
I remember when the 7-Eleven and Baskin-Robins sat next to a field in Bennett Valley.
And the Payless across the street.
We had a Long's over there too - I miss Long's.
And the "castles" at the top of Medica Rd. that my friend lived next to - I think still there, but accessible from a different street.
How about those sewer pipes one could walk through in Roseland ? (always wanted to try that one).
How about the "Baby Tree" in the old Community Hospital ?
I went up there shortly after Sutter took over the premises to see my pic on the baby tree, and sadly it was gone - a nurse said it was removed and put in storage only weeks before.
My old park on North Street is no longer the fun little place I remember.
I still call the LBC the LBC. Ode to Luther Burbank !
What a shame the Copperfield's building was renovated - SHAME SHAME SHAME !!!
Oh, the list goes on......
A swat team for a family quarrel with children present? This would never have happened when the Peace and Freedom Party ran the City of Cotati circa 1970s. The police chief was a full blooded Native American and the Mayor later worked for United Way.
I've read the story twice now, and I still don't know why I put that giant eyeball there.
You've got to read the story to find out!
Yeah, what IS up with that eyeball, anyway?
"macaroni and cheese is haute cuisine because you rubbed your truffles on it"

Nicolas Grizzle - May I quote that ending? Profound Statement..
I went to Santa Rosa Junior College back in 1968-70. We used to eat at the Artic Circle Drive-In. I remember that big plastic white chicken statue called " Acey Bird" When did that place leave Santa Rosa ? Also I remember eating at Rocky,s Pizza Parlor in back of the college on Steele Lane.
He said Joyce Teel is worth 1 billion, not that she made that much in profits or sales. Also, Raley's never opened their books. How can you all be so certain about what Raley's profit margin is if they've neve opened their books? Raley's is privately owned, there is no public record as per how much the company is really worth, how much their profits really are, or their profit margin. So, your math is a waste of time, Concerned Citizen. You don''t have the facts because Raley's never made them available.
thanks for the link Jennifer -- the link is also embedded in the story, click "help this man heal!" Our system doesn't always highlight the links in an obvious way … !

Thanks, Tom :)
Thanks for the review, Nick. Just got back from the event -- delicious
Rick is doing better than ever! He is an amazing man both in business and personal life!
Charlie, no, there is not help. Why does everyone say, "There is help"? People: please stop lying. There is no help.
"What a country we live in: In open-carry states, a mostly white group of chubby second amendment “gundamentalists” have taken to carrying actual assault weapons into retail and fast-food outlets with not much pushback from police, while in California, a 13-year-old Latino kid gets shot and killed by police while openly carrying a toy gun in a semi-rough Santa Rosa neighborhood. Meanwhile, there’s a school shooting practically every week—and thus the battle lines are drawn between arming everybody and, gee, how about some sane gun laws?"
No child is allowed to open carry. No one in CA can own a non-neutered semi-automatic rifle. Open carry activists usually inform police of their actions beforehand. There is not a school shooting every week, but over 50% of gun homicide victims are african-american. How about constructive policy rather then your anti-NRA "gun laws" that do nothing to help anyone! Talk about drinking the kool aid. Strawman much?
If you cared at all about ending gun violence, you would be talking about poverty, the war on drugs, black on black crime, and the failure of anti-gun policy. But you're not. You're repeating talking points that don't make sense, you're demonizing your enemies and your tugging at the heartstrings of racism in the United States. Unbelieveable.
Deeply affected.* Smh.
It sounds like Mr. Neillands hasn't evaluated the data and yet he's telling the public to doubt the results. Is he acting as a spokesperson for the Department, or offering his own opinion? The article doesn't say. I like seeing the Bohemian report on a scientific debate but not if it's just speculation by a scientist not involved in the research.
To respond to the above comment, the 650 number only includes workers directly employed by the casino, and only those casino worker's who are able to be in the union. This may not be 100% correct but I believe all management, admin positions, card dealers, security and others are excluded. A conservative estimate of this group is 350, it could be up to 600. There are also at least 200 if not 300 workers at the non-casino restaurants who are also not included. Conservatively that puts the total number of jobs at 1200. Additionally, there will be a hotel made in the future and those will be 200-300 jobs easily. So while 1500 jobs is perhaps a better estimate than 2000, it is NOT 650. You need to stop spreading biased information to promote your cause. Also you need to blame the evil company Stations because they laid off HUNDREDS of workers in December. Had they not done that, the 2000 figure may still be accurate. Please do some unbiased research, your activism (which I support) will be more powerful with accurate data.
