"but he comes out during harvest to tool around on a tractor and catch the Calistoga Speedway's"
Neat, upon what property is running a tractor?
Is he a part-time owner operator of a modest vineyard?
Are they making money from working for his father, twice?
Or does he has ownership of this business in Calistoga.
And is it solvent?
Beautiful Calistoga building with natural light and space on the corner.
Are you planning to pay for the dredging of the Petaluma river, harbor, turning basin, channel, creek drainage, floods are coming...Set aside twelve million dollars its bad, real bad. I would be embarrassed for interfering with the stewards of the Petaluma River and their operations with asphalt and moving gravel from barges. They took care of the community. You want to cut them off from South County grandfathered Union sites, U.S. Longshoreman sites. Shame on you and your blues. Accept change and plant/work on your own property away from the highway. It works for my tree forest from the 50' Cedars taken from the Trinity Alps as one foot seedlings.
$30.5 million dollar contract and you're snivling on trees planted upon CalTrans land?
Bridges, overpasses frontage roads. big concrete pours, creek pile driving, column boring, land stabilization, slope. water diversion, demolition of concrete recycling, staging areas, etc.
Were you ever employed as an estimator for highway construction.
No, I wonder what you print has any basis to business.
The gift of 200 trees to Sturgeons Historic Mill on Greenhill Rd . Seb. was wonderful for public school services.
The only running steam powered mill perhaps in the U.S. and they receive local classes of school kids being shown the original way of milling.
The trees will be replanted and used as visuals, sound barriers, etc.
best beer in the world??? overstatement x20
David, Thanks for letting us know what is going on. I've been so disturbed with seeing all the redwoods being taken down... Wish I had known before, wonder if we could have stopped it??? So sad... Speaking of the Gateway to Sonoma County, whatever happened to the Dutra building? Is it still in court?
It would take more than 400 words to describe one of the most embarrassing moments of my life thus far.
Since we seem to be transitioning to the much-vaunted "Wine Country", does that mean that CalTrans is going to start planting grapes alongside the new and improved 101? There will be at least 3-4 years before a landscaping and revegetation plan is decided by CalTrans and SCTA, so there will be an even longer period for drivers and visitors to stare at freshly mowed bare land.
In Petaluma, CalTrans is building a formulaic new South Petaluma Boulevard Interchange, which not only "required" cutting the entire heron and egret rookery trees (yeah, the lowly eucalyptus), but is also going to grace the Gateway to Sonoma County with a 40' high standard issue overcrossing and 4 traffic lights for southbound commuters, where there are none now.
CalTrans: not known for grace or design, no less concern about local traffic congestion.
The Diaz family has been extremely generous in the Healdsburg community. It has been an honor to know them.. They were our major Sponsors for Ancestors of Mexico presented by the
Healdsburg Museum & Historical Society...
I wrote about the family for Healdsburg Patch. Wonderful people, wonderful community members! Excellent article.
How can I contact Scott Heath & Ellen Cavalli - Cider lean? We have just purchased a property with vintage apple trees & want to share the apples with them. Tried looking them up & the article had no contact info. Much Thanks, Debora & Jeff
What a great article! And what a lovely family. We know Octavio and Pedro. They are wonderful people and a blessing to have in Healdsburg. Not only do they run excellent restaurants and a store, but they continually give back to their community. The Diaz family is truly Royal!
It was horrifying to read this article and realize that nothing has changed since 1960 when the school committee in Sausalito launched the first integration attempt of the schools by removing me and 5 boys from Bayside school and bused us into the MLK (Richarson Bay School) in 1960. It is an abomination to hear that nothing has changed, in the self proclaimed, " most progressive state in the nation". How can it be that there is still a segregated Marin City and an elitist Sausalito? What century are you in?????
Instead of addressing the toxic degradation of the segregation of Marin City from Sausalito , the town of Sausalito now seeks to promote further segregation by funding a charter school in Sausalito and busing for" the rest of the students of Sausaltio to MLK."
The segregation of students in Sausalito and Marin City led to race riots when all students joined together at Tamalpais High School in 1960. This system of segregation led to horrific violence at the high school as students tried to accomodate to the new cultures that were totally foreign to them. This segregation was and continues to be a travesty.
This article speaks about creating a charter school in Sausalito for some students and "dumping all the other students in MLK." This would be exactly the case should this proposal be agreed upon by the town. It is shameful.
I ask that you ALL consider carefully the fact that there should be no Marin City...Sausaltio should catch up with the rest of the nation and integrate the two areas, with low- income housing available throughout the two areas and thus stopping the perpetuatiion of the cruelty of segregation for all of its citizens, the most valuable being children.
OK! I will be sending it in to you - as "Glad It Ended" ;)

The Pentagon has officially removed the longstanding military ban on women in combat. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta formally announced the move on Thursday in Washington
"It’s clear to all of us that women are contributing in unprecedented ways to the military’s mission of defending the nation. Women represent 15 percent of the force: over 200,000. They’re serving in a growing number of critical roles on and off the battlefield. The fact is that they have become an integral part of our ability to perform our mission."
In being officially allowed to serve in combat roles, women will be afforded opportunities for medals of recognition as well as for advancement to positions they have been unable to pursue.
It illustrate the blatantly hypocritical policies of the U.S. and its allies. I don't believe in war. I don't believe in killing my fellowman. Violence breeds violence, and he or she that lives by the sword shall die by the sword. The true God is a good God who is kind and loving, concerned. God hates war and its rich perpetrators. In some ways, I'm a pacifist, because I believe that God can settle all wars.

Sad but true. When I was a kid, you could not shoot nor own a gun until you passed a "Hunter's Safety Course" at a local shooting range. One was taught resposible firearm control and safety. ( and they might have been checking you out for mental issues also).You were not allowed to obtain hunting license until you passed. Why would anyone want a high powered firearm for anything else? What happened?
It will always be Sear's Point to me, but I'll call it whatever you want for free tickets.
Few of us recognize the true security threat to the USA; consider:
trust in gov:
The 'boast of heraldry, the pomp of power' don't address/solve the deadly problems created globally by this God forsaken war waging nation.
