Re: “Ghost Stories

Right before Tom took over, my friend's dad was the manager. We were about 11/12 at the time and basically lived there and helped him with everything from ushering to sell concessions. I saw many things while hanging there before and after hours. The projection booth ghost was seen many times. Also have seen someone in the balcony on several occasions. I've never been afraid though. Hanging at the Phoenix was partly responsible for me being a ghost hunter myself. Good times!

Re: “Dirt Farmers

Nice article on the composting and cover cropping practices by Chateau Montelena.

One thing jumped out at me though that is worthy of another article - that further work needs to be done to prevent food waste in the first place.

Second, when food waste or food scraps are generated we need to make sure that what is perfectly edible and nutritious gets to hungry people first and then to compost or energy generation. The work of groups like Food Shift or ExtraFood.org needs to be front and center in this effort.

Finally, businesses in the waste management sector need to transform their models from making money off waste to making money by preventing waste.

Re: “Cosby Canceled at Wells Fargo Center

It's so wonderful to see that this show was cancelled. Or postponed. Or whatever they want to call it.

Re: “Cosby Conundrum

Cosby's show has been indefinitely postponed! But Kyle from Wells Fargo Center for the Arts said to the Press Democrat that only 50 people contacted him. Kyle knows of our petition with over 4,300 signatures. How disingenuous! The people who signed this petition and all the others who made calls etc. know they have made a difference even though WFCFTA will not acknowledge that fact. Shame on them!

Re: “Drive On

Too bad KSRO is now a right-wing station. Can't listen to Steve Jaxon anymore because I won't support KSRO.

Re: “The Heretic

Its not a system but holistic management. Anyone who tries to turn it in to a system will fail - as the trial showed.

Re: “The Heretic

Cattle that grazed according to Savory’s method needed expensive supplemental feed, became stressed and fatigued, and lost enough weight to compromise the profitability of their meat. And even though Savory’s Grazing Trials took place during a period of freakishly high rainfall, with rates exceeding the average by 24 percent overall, the authors contend that Savory’s method “failed to produce the marked improvement in grass cover claimed from its application.” The authors of the overview concluded exactly what mainstream ecologists have been concluding for 40 years: “No grazing system has yet shown the capacity to overcome the long-term effects of overstocking and/or drought on vegetation productivity.”

Re: “What Ails the Whales

Very nice! I paddle a lot on Tomales and it seems that the Greys are pretty consistent. Friends and I have seen them between the mouth and Pelican Point, right near where you spotted yours. These are amazing animals and it's very cool to see them in the water.

Thanks for including the info on how to safely watch the whales (for us and them)! Best thing to do is just stop and enjoy the moment.

Mr. Benét was not French. He was born in Pennsylvania, the second son of a U.S. Army colonel.

Re: “Topsy Turvy

Carousel....where the moral of the story is that you can hit your wife, attempt to rob and murder someone, then commit suicide and when you get to "heaven's back gate" they'll let you go back down to earth to beat your daughter too. Just be sure to say you love them and then step right up to heaven. Yep well done Speckles on your musical promotion of domestic violence! It was awful.

Re: “Cosby Conundrum

don't buy a ticket that is the best way to shut down the event. the venue is in the market to make money not loose it. If any one can not fill the house no one will produce him the term boycott comes to mind and if you really want the show gone boycott all shows at the venue and see how fast things change.

Re: “Letters to the Editor: February 11, 2015

Obama and Walmart

Dear Editor: Walmart is one of only a few major retailers that have refused to sign on to new safety standards that came out after a garment factory collapsed last year in Dhaka, Bangladesh, killing 1,129 people.

Despite a spotty record on labor issues, President Barack Obama's visit Friday to the Walmart in Mountain View was the first ever by a sitting president to a Walmart store -- the world's largest retailer. It raised the ire of some labor advocates who have long criticized the retailer for low wages and importing goods from China rather than buying from U.S. manufacturers. They protested alongside environmentalists demanding a halt to the Keystone XL pipeline on a street outside the Fairmont Hotel on Thursday. Yet the same cost-saving motivations that have led Walmart have cut corners on labor.

Re: “Fatten Up

Second Line is a New Orleans Funk Band based in Sonoma County and we will be playing 3 Mardi Gras performances this weekend. We kickoff the weekend off on Saturday 14 February with a Voodoo Valentine Mardi Gras Ball at 8:00 pm at the Redwood Cafe. On Sunday February 15 Second Line is co-billing with the Dixie Giants at 755 After Dark (Aubergine) for a Saints and Sinners Mardi Gras Ball. On FAT TUESDAY 17 February Second Line is at The Parish Cafe in Downtown Healdsburg from 5 pm to 8 pm.. The Parish is a New Orleans restaurant and they will be serving the most authentic Mardi Gras cuisine west of the Mississippi.

www.SecondLineMusic.Com

Second Line is a collaboration of professional musicians that formed a project for the love of New Orleans music and culture. Their sound is defined by a combination of tight melodic grooves and highly syncopated New Orleans "second-line" rhythms under highly charged guitar and keyboard riffing. New Orleans funk is filled with raw, infectious, and downright dirty grooves. Smelly, greasy, fat (phat), and lowdown swamp funk thick as gumbo and nourishing as a barbecue shrimp po-boy.

The band features legendary musicians Val Fuentes (It's a Beautiful Day, New Riders of the Purple Sage, The Zins) and Roy Schmall (Big Brother and the Holding Company, Snooky Flowers, Bill Cutler, Smoke Inc, Stephanie Teel Band). The band is fronted by lead vocalist Andre Kelly (Rosetown Revue and Mojo Filter), Jim Stice on Guitar and Vocals (Phenix, and the Zins), and Matt Petruska on Bass (Travelin' Soul).
