@CT: Can people who work at Target afford to buy a house most places in California? I wish they could, but the answer is no. So that is not really a fair question, especially considering that if you tried to rent a closet in the city on a retail wage you wouldn't be able to. As someone who has successfully rented in Petaluma for more than 5 years on a low salary, it is definitely possible (and in a great neighborhood). You can't compare SF and Pet real estate apples to apples because they are dramatically different places. But if you compare square footage-wise, Petaluma is less per square foot aside from ethereal questions of aesthetics and quality of life. The bus question is also not fair either, as no one is claiming that Petaluma is on par with the services of a major city with more than 10 times the population. As for businesses, Camelbak, Traditional Medicinals tea, multiple tech companies such as MarketLive and Cyan, Biosearch, Athleta and many more have chosen to be in Petaluma. Some of those companies began here and chose to stay, some moved from other places. And you know what? Places change over time. The North Bay is an expensive place that is less expensive than the other expensive places in the Bay Area. So what?
Propaganda! Petaluma pretends to be part of Marin County already. Home sales for 1.5 in SF cannot be compared to the barns being sold for 500K (as you put it, 1/3 the cost) in Petaluma. So, do you think the people working at the new Target store (BTW, their prices are more expensive than the RP/SR stores!) can afford these houses? Absolutely not. Your focus point is a Therapist from Sausalito-Marin County??? How is the public transportation system in Petaluma? Any buses across town every 20 mins? Or does the community only cater to people with cars and suvs? What companies have moved there that are not part the monoculture strip malls and restaurant chains? Exactly. People with money cannot afford to live in the Bay Area. SO they are migrating to the north bay. Where they can price out those who have been here all this time? Might want to reconsider that "G" word qualification!
Hi im 15 years old and live in Santa Rosa, I was looking up cool sex tips to help me when I need to pleasure that certain someone with my sexual orgin, but what I have to say, and I know this sounds weird, but I've taken a strange sexual addiction to my dog, Carla. I was just looking at her one day and, exuse me but, I got extremely " horny" and put peanut butter on my sexual orgin and let her lick at it. I've grown very attached to her and really want to take it a step father with real sexual intercourse. Is what I'm doing wrong? I'm so confused, it's just I try to stop but when I do I get really strange all most as if it's a drug to me. Please reply in some way, thanks.

A wonderful idea rooted in, I believe, the practices of the New Zealand Maori. It's one of those non-intuitive ideas (or perhaps "non-emotional" is a better term) for returning the young back to society. I deeply applaud this effort.
My kind of article. I learned alot. Love mustard!
Restorative Resources is a great organization + we are lucky to have it here in Sonoma County. Another local organization, Center for Restorative Process, provides a curriculum + trains facilitators to help schools build a positive culture based on the values of restorative justice. This includes positive support for problem-solving and community building before things get to the stage of needing restorative justice intervention. See www.CenterForRestorativeProcess.com, where you can download a curriculum + training manual for free. Experience shows that building this kind of foundation also helps to support positive outcomes when student behavior escalates to where restorative justice intervention is needed. Thanks!
I know many young adults who would benefit from programs like that. The hard part is getting them interested.
There's plenty of wasted tax money in this area that could easily cover the costs of keeping the library open more. One example is marijuana arrests. It's better spend money on reinforcing positive habits that to suppress negative habits. That technique almost never works – look at the war on drugs. Look a child who was NEVER allowed to eat candy or sweets. Whenever she could, she binged on those foods, and ended up overweight with an eating disorder. I personally wanted to only eat candy when I was 6 years old - and my parents let me! I lasted a day. Since that instance, I rarely eat candy.
Spend money on the library and library programs, and our town will use it.

It's no wonder so many can't see through the fog of ego bashing and misinformation to find the truth about cannabis. We are restrained by government controls and/or ignorance so science has a difficult time getting funding so they can give us the straight goods.
If however, we become ill or stressed beyond our limits and try this wonderful healing plant for ourselves all the controversy fads into the background as we realize we have found something very special, we take a deep pain free breath and we know the truth.

Thanks for this article - very interesting!
I concur w/ Thomas re the women who spoke addressing the effect that Mr. Carrillo's conduct has had on them and those they know. It was incredibly brave of them and very emotionally wrenching to not only hear their stories vis-a-vis Efren's actions, but the lasting impact of fear that permeates their lives forever after. This is not a fairy tale and should not be swept away.
Bravo to all of the contributors to this piece. You did a great job summarizing some of the most important issues which garnered the spotlight and captured the imaginations of the people of Sonoma County last year. But I must clarify something. You report that Ms. Darling says that nobody is talking about the effect that Mr. Carrillo's conduct has had on women. This is not entirely true. While I (and others) perceived a dearth of outcry of shock and disgust from the women in this county for a time after this shameful incident occurred, that all changed at the second meeting held by the Citizens for Accountability which was held at the Sebastopol Grange a week before Thanksgiving. At that time, several women, one by one, got up out of their chairs, bravely faced the members of the large crowd and spoke of their own past unrelated experiences and how hearing about Mr. Carrillo's reprehensible conduct in the early morning hours of July 13, 2013, violated their right to feel safe in their own home. Then at the third meeting held by the Citizens for Accountability, several women once again rose up out of their chairs, took the mic and expressed similar feelings. Also, it should be pointed out that I and others have been raising this issue since Day One of this incident; in fact, I wrote a letter to this publication, which was published, identifying the REAL victim as the woman who, at 3:40 in the morning on July 13, 2013, was so terrified by Efren Carrillo's actions that she found it necessary to call 9-1-1 not once, but TWICE. I will reiterate once again that I stand with this victim and hope that she will avail herself of each and every opportunity which may become available to her in her personal pursuit of justice. And it is my sincere hope that she is receiving the support that she needs to get her through this most trying time.
I live on the anchorage its a really nice life stlye
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!
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).
