Shredded tires are added to the road base, and are destroying the air quality according to neighbors..How did you miss this, please?...b
Warehouse Demo Service Lost the civil suite!!!! They work supervisors over hours. I worked several 24 hour days!!!
These people are terribly ignorant of how much methane is being produces and how much damage this incredibly powerful greenhouse gas is doing to the environment. Cows are the problem, ranches (that replaced forests) are the problem. Read (or google) Livestock's Long Shadow for a full report.
And shame on you for pushing animal production facilities as being 'green.'
agreed, voting for a man who has already sold us out before would be not only foolish, but simply dangerous. I will surely NOT be voting for Carillo, no doubt about that. We need folks who put the environment first, not second or third, first. Carillo seems to have dollar signs in his eyes like so many modern citizens, when he should have trees. Also, what is wrong with a little experience, how much has really changed in 16 years? Our cell phones dont make us any smarter, just one more bill on this list and one more product to buy on credit cards. Not that much has changed, and if anything, preserving the environment is even *more* important than ever before. Vote smart, not shiny new.

Great article and very informative. As another Eldercare professional, It's highly recommended that families avoid privately hired caregivers as they are often NOT less expensive and expose families to extraordinary risk. I would also suggest interviewing caregiver agencies thoroughly, ask tough questions and for references, and make sure the agency is bonded and insured. Since there is no licensing for Non-medical Homecare in California, it's best for the agency to have a Licensed Clinical Social Worker on staff, that they contract with local government agencies and have a strong trusted reputation in the Senior Care community--one that is much MORE than positive branding, like Visiting Angels for example!

He has been asked about Preservation ranch. He will vote for development in all cases. He doesn't seem to care about the future of Sonoma County and the folks who will be here in the future.
I’d like to remind voters that an election is NOT a popularity contest or a game to be won. Someone may be young, socially adept, charming and truly kind but that does not automatically make him the best candidate for the position. You have to look beneath the surface for the truth.
I like to look at actual actions taken by the candidate for the common good and then make my choice.
I find Efren Carillo’s environmental voting record to be disturbing. He has not kept his word to MANY of us as far as so many things he said he was going to do.
For instance, he said something like…”No more gravel mining in the Russian River period,” then he voted to increase Syar’s gravel mining contract from 5 to 15 years! He told many of us personally that he would not vote for the Dutra asphalt plant on the Petaluma River. We all know the outcome of that one!
As far as town hall meetings/community visioning etc, what good are they if the person with the vote negates the agreed upon project when it comes time to vote? I’m referring to the Sebastopol Rd project that the community worked so hard on. Mr Carillo also promised to work on changing the laws regarding the impound of the vehicles of unlicensed drivers when speaking at a rally of the local UFW. Did he follow through? No.
He voted for a 45’ tall winery and vineyards to be built along the scenic corridor of Hwy 116 in a residential neighborhood, against the ardent pleas and protests of the community and neighbors.
We have lost more land to vineyards, including along the coast. General plan amendments are granted regularly to accommodate developers.
If you care about the children (and their future), then wouldn’t you work a lot harder to preserve the natural resources of Sonoma County? Our children and grandchildren need clean air and water, scenic vistas and wholesome places to recreate, not more vineyards, traffic, greenhouse gases, pollution and industrial plants. I fear that our county is going to be another Contra Costa County very soon unless this dangerous trend is STOPPED.
If you care about the elders, then PLEASE respect all the work they have done on the General Plan to guide us through this difficult growth process. Many elders with foresight and a vision for the future worked very hard to create a blueprint for development so that Sonoma County would remain the wonderful place to live that it once was! So respect your elders by not granting amendments to accommodate development. If an amendment is necessary, then the project is probably not appropriate. The current business model, based on endless growth is to the informed person, highly unsustainable! We need to develop new, perhaps creative ways to maintain a viable economy other than “development” and new construction/destruction. Otherwise, what will remain?
I am very alarmed, to say the least, at the trend of the decisions of this current board of supervisors. This can only have tragic results.
So I say….Respect Your Elders. Love the Children. Care for the Earth. Not just with words, but with your actions.
This is why I’m NOT voting for Efren Carillo, even though I like him.
I’m voting for Ernie Carpenter, because I know he is not running for his own personal ambitions, but to be of service to the citizens of Sonoma County.
Yes and they didn't invite Efren Carillo back because he didn't keep his word on changing/adjustin the vehicle impound laws as he promised thousands of attendees the previous year.
The logic of this editorial escapes me. Environmental preservation is paramount. But vote for the incumbent who has proven he puts economic development above environmental preservation. And not for the veteran who showed his bona fides in office, because he's "out of touch". (i.e. Old) And oh yeah, if the incumbent follows the path he's demonstrated he's already on, then, in four years, don't support him... Can anyone explain the rationale here? Gabe?
Interesting that his campaign is fynded by big business?!?!
Why not at least ask Mr. Carrillo what factors will weigh most heavily in his decision on Preservation Ranch?
Outstanding article Rachel! As a health care professional, I'm well aware of the need for quality care for the elderly in the privacy and comfort of their own home. It's truly a shame there are people out there only too willing to exploit that need.
I just saw the play today and was so moved and impressed by these actors. The work they put into the performance (using some of their personal experiences) was amazing. We can all learn about overcoming challenges from these wonderful people!

Kudos to Ms. Dovey and the Bohemian for shedding important light on this very important topic. There are many different delivery models for home care services, and each have their positives and negatives. Hopefully, this article will help families decide on the safest and most reliable provider when it comes to finding assistance for their loved ones. Let's keep seniors safe at home.
