I live adjacent to Salt Point. The suggestion that the park is somehow over-run with foragers is just absurd - most of them never make it more than a few hundred yards inland from Highway 1, in a park that extends a mile inland & up steep hills.
Are more & more people discovering it? Absolutely. Is the forest trampled? Hardly. Wild pigs have a much larger and more negative impact on the park (lately) than humans - period.
This year there isn't much to harvest anyway, as we simply haven't had enough rain.
The idea that other Coastal Sonoma parks should be opened to foraging is brilliant. The larger numbers of people randomly walking the forest will also stem the emergent destructive illegal pot grows on state property as well - something that *IS* a recurring problem in Salt Point (and others) but somehow is not mentioned much in the press...
I live on the anchorage its a really nice life stlye
Than you everyone for saving the theater. A great community effort (including Zack Braff) and treasured resource.
George is also active in the Japanese American Community, producing a musical drama on his imprisonment here:
And when he posted this site to his followers, bumped this petition by about 25,000 signatures:
Fighting for civil rights with passion and humor, an amazing human being!
It is refreshing to hear the voices of RNs, the actual caregivers who work at the bedside and see first-hand the impact of the decisions of those working in the corner office. Health care services are shrinking, and privatizing, and becoming more expensive and exclusive, even in the face of Obamacare. Hopefully for the rest of us, Nurses like these will lead the way to a place where health care is a human right. Go Nurses!
Although I haven't been much of a "Trekkie", an Interred-Asian, or specifically gay man, I still find the career and life of George Takei fascinating.The author of this article paints a picture of an uncomplicated American original who has survived, and is now thriving in an ambiguous culture with an uncertain future. His bravery is demonstrated when virtual and actual worlds of real people meet. It is not surprising that he has gained an immense following in the realm of social media. A man of this caliber would be a natural for political office in any arena.His ending statement about humor being the connective glue that binds us, speaks of his humanity. Someone with this much insight and wisdom is desperately needed to lead us out of our virtual prison camps and into a closet that fits us all ...(Pun intended).
Thank you to the Bohemian for the continuing coverage on this story. I pray to God that Andy Lopez's family would get the attention their story deserves.The other local news media outlets coverage of this story are neither informative or noteworthy with only a few seconds of their airtime. Please continue to have coverage of any upcoming events in Andy's honor.
Thank you again.
Merle Haggard is scheduled at the Uptown theatre on December 7, 2013. This coming Saturday December 7, 2013
It sounds as if the Bohemian is intentionally trying to evoke a certain response to Walmart or the change of the market to Walmart with the wording "Walmart sneaks into the former ...". How are they "sneaking"? This was announced a few weeks ago ... did the Bohemian "news crew" not hear of that? Is this really "news" to the Bohemian? And in the final result, will the community be better served by a lower priced grocery outlet in their midst than either a higher priced store as before OR by an empty building in a major space for the center? In free enterprise, the measure is whether or not the public patronizes the store ... no?? That remains to be seen. But I doubt the folks in the community are as surprised as the Bohemian seems to be. This is old news.
Luffman and Bennett, the Living Wage Coalition and their knee-jerk reaction...and I do mean "JERK"...all typical of the kind of people and attitudes that have plunged Rohnert Park into the financial morass where it wallows.
Pacific Market was a business failure. Its business plan...putting a high-end, high-priced market into a median-income area where the closest surrounding customers were in apartments...was a failure. It TRIED to put on the front that it would fail if Walmart expanded its store. Truth is, it failed anyway. Walmart had nothing to do with it.
As for the study about how Walmart would decimate them...note that Pacific Market's "owners petitioned (the) study from Sonoma State University." It is easy to conceive of a study and execute it to produce a pre-ordained result. Any egghead can do it. Academia is full of them.
I have had their delicious dinners 2x and will be back for more. Each course of the meal is carefully paired with a (often hard to get) wine... With amazing results!

WE DO LIVE IN A POLICE STATE SIR.. If u think we r free in this country u r str8 retarted.
They might as well call this country Nazi America..
Ravich....just as Diane Swine-slime, Nancy Pelosi (we have to pass it to see what's in it), Megabucks Meg Whitman, Carli Fiorina and grossly too many others of their sociopathic ilk....is a laboratory specimen of political whoredom at its absolute lowest and most execrable.
You know...you people on the Boho have an amusing priority structure: here Rachel Dovey goes and uses up six full pages all but conferring sainthood on Will Parrish of the Anderson Valley Advertiser for bravely enough making a temporary fixture of himself on a CalTrans contract stitcher, and yet Leilani Clark rations out a paltry four rather anemic and inconsequential short paragraphs to what is indisputably the single most destructive hoax against the American people in their entire history: the triply misnomered so called "federal reserve bank" which is using the name "federal" fraudulently and in violation of Title XVIII USC 709 and is NOT a bank as lawfully defined. The "fed" is a foreign, privately owned credit cartel, not a "bank", and has been directly and feloniously responsible for sodomizing the American working people bowlegged out of their substance and their very lives often enough for almost exactly one century...and Leilani's comically brief remarks are tucked away on page 26 constituting a virtual subliminal frame for some readers. By intent most likely.
This celluloid, MONEY FOR NOTHING, may well be worth seeing, but I would be willing to bet rubies to dead cockroaches that nowhere in that film do they once mention that the i.r.s., in all its perfidy and gross violation of the Constitution, has never once been anything other than an armed collection agency for the "fed" and was bastard-spawned in the exact same year, 1913.
A lot more could be said but it would run into book length before I even got started so I drop it here.
If anyone wishes to see thee real and very ugly truth about the federal reserve prank, I cannot praise Aaron Russo's FREEDOM TO FASCISM too highly.
Will it be a crime for teenager to paint his yellow gun black, so he can be a tough looking wannabe and posture in the hood like a real gangsta?
Thanks for the heads up; got our vinyl today.
Do you remember let it be records in sf?
Hi David, thank you for this review. I notice that, based on the photo, the cast features long-time local actor Norm Hall (with whom I've worked in musical theater productions). It seems a shame that Norm is not name-checked *somewhere* either in the review or in the photo caption. I just felt I needed to mention it. Thanks again!
As a friend of Mark's, I think there are other circumstances that came to play in this terrible tragedy. There was clear and irrefutable evidence that there was drug use involved with Houston, the son. It was never well established during the trial that Houston was free of the amphetamines that he had been using, or whether or not he was experiencing withdrawals.
At this point,those factors are no doubt irrelevant. But, they are worth noting to those of us who stood on the sidelines and suffered the loss of Mark's friendship and his wonderful music. God rest you Mark --- we mourn your loss, but celebrate your life and the joy you brought to so many of us.
