Re: “Beef of Burden

Once again, the National Park Service is under fire in the Bay Area for issues of mismanagement. There's been a constant drone of criticism from Drake's Bay to West Marin cattle ranching practices to Tule Elk dying of thirst to massive traffic at Muir Woods damaging the environment to curtailing legitimate recreational uses at the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, including dog walking, bonfires and sporting events. Has anyone ever given thought that maybe, just maybe, the National Park Service does not have the expertise or leadership in place here? Maybe they are not the right agency, considering their experience and forte is managing remotes wilderness areas? Yes, these are hard, complex issues. Yes, there are competing interests. Of course, it's not easy. Yet this is not a good performance review by any stretch. Can anyone argue it's not time for a total shake-up and revamping of NPS leadership and operations in the Bay Area? Anyone?

Re: “Debriefer: March 23, 2016

Collapsing fisheries. Collapsing oceans. Collapsing forests. And yet still no one mentions geoengineering. Have we lost the ability to trust our own judgement and common sense? For the most part it appears that we have. Look up. The answer(s) are right above us.

Re: “Early Adopters

I am Goshen Perry by name i want to say a big thanks to the St Anthonio Orphanage home for making my dreams come true. I and my wife have been married for long now, but we are unable to have a child because of some health issues. And we decided to adopt. We have been hearing that the process to adopt a child is a very difficult one so since then going through the process has really been our fear. but we got in contact with someone who adopted from St Anthonio Orphanage she told us that the process in St Anthonio is very easy. so i decided to contact St Anthonio Orphanage, and behold the process was so easy and in just one week i got the child and now i am a happy man because the child is finally with me. So please i want you all to help me say a big thanks to St Anthonio Orphanage for their good heart. In case you want to also adopt a child, and you don't want to go through any stress i recommend you to St Anthonio Orphanage Home. Their email is (stanthonioorphanagehome@gmail.com), and their phone number is +1 (508) 686-7018

Re: “Turn to Bern?

There is no "white knight" that will save this nation that is run by The Crown and The Committee of 300 as they reach thier apex. Stop following this distraction as we are being poisoned, literaly and mentaly, from the psycopaths that run our world government. If you live in CA how about looking up from all of the bombardment of media... I mean really.... go outside and look up. In fact I dare you all to watch the cloud "lines" being sprayed accross our sky and just question it.
I am not a person who likes to post anything, but we must all know about this and talk about it; Geoengineeringwatch.org Act now, talk to eachother, before we have nothing left. Even if you are not religious (I am not saying to convert) just go to your local churches to connect with people, we need to unite the people who want to care about our future and our childrens future, for this planet and every thing living on it. Because once you know, you cannot ignore it, and if we do something now, we can save ourselves and eachother before it's too late.

Re: “Turn to Bern?

Sorry! I am not a good loser, that's why I don't gamble. Put it this way, I am not going to vote for Sen. Cruz, former Gov. John Kasich who are in the corrupt institution called Congress or the Republican good old boys clique. It's obvious if it comes to a convention, GOP elites are not going to pick Donald Trump. Using Kasich to bring down Trump, at any meeting are risking and it's at there own peril. Nor am I voting for that Criminal Hillary Clinton or a Socialist-Communist Bernie Sanders who along with King Obama has pilfered the depleted federal and state treasuries, in supporting financially millions of illegal aliens. I'll stay to the end until Donald Trump is either crippled or loses the race as nominee for the Presidency, by using any method to block Trump, which means any dirty tricks diversion, any manipulating of the delegates by either Political Party.



If it goes against Donald Trump I am out, my family out, a bunch of old GI's who fought in Viet-Nam are out; a majority of my friends and co-worker thought their vote didn't matter are out and people who have never shadowed the election booth and millions of Trump you can be rest assured supporters will drop out. The effect of riots in the street of civil unrest is will cause what's left of our sovereignty to collapse, Why bother voting when they see the election system is corrupt. All these people are a tiny drop in the ocean, but it's not worth my energy or encouragement to vote for GOP establishment, or an alleged felon who violated our National Security and just like Sanders wants to soak the rich, and then kill more jobs of what is left of them.



I never trusted either party as anybody who goes into today's Washington morass, is corrupted by the lobbyists who appear at their offices offering them blank checks that they can squirrel away as long as they work for them on the floor of the House and Senate. The people who voted for Donald Trump are part of the 'Silent Majority'. The American people are so demoralized by the Left or Right who never pursue what the population want; not the elites or a government that wants controls your life, just as the Kremlin does in Russia even today. Hillary is a clever in her dialogue, ranting on about equality and telling Americans that Conservatives are against every minority and ethnic population. YES! She's good with her automatic commentaries, but she still has the same weak agenda of Obama and his proponents, that will drone on just like the other party.



Any theft in a contested conference will certainly implode inside the Republican Party if they try to isolate the Donald. Why has millions of a silent majority entered the fray, because they want to see the Trump wall go up. Right now the United States are on the edge of economic disaster and the filaments extend outwards that includes the illegal alien invasion, that is depleting large chunks of social services and is effected Citizens and Legal immigrants way of life. More highway congestion, when foreigners are given drivers licenses and much of the facts about the illegal immigrant inversion is muffled by Obama's government and the mainstream press. States like Ohio, Michigan has lost hundreds of thousands of jobs, not only theft by illegal aliens, but by people with profiles chief negotiator Democratic John Kerry who gave away $150 Billion dollars to Iran.


On Obama's orders and GOP Cartel elites who have sold our jobs and businesses to foreign countries, that includes Mexico. Although our deficit with Mexico is $60 B, it does not compare with China' $600 Billion. To me it's no wonder that Detroit, Michigan, or the 'Rust Belt' states as they are called, which was once a hive of the bustling auto and steel industry. Now thousands of empty lots padlocked and still, having moved to Mexico. 9 provinces in the NAFTA treaty are the capitols of General motors, Ford, and Chrysler and a whole range of foreign cars and trucks, now manufactured across the border.

Adrienne, Thanks for catching that errant editing of Julie Combs' full name and that she is a Santa Rosa city council member. It's been corrected in the online version. Thanks to everyone else for their comments.

Re: “Troubled Tenants

I am concerned for the tenants, as I am one, and the landlords who after years of seeing property values fall are now faced with large increases in property taxes, water, trash etc. however, all that being said we need to be mindful of the people who live here, who want to raise their families here, and our seniors. They work here and spend their money here. If people are being driven out because the wages are too low to pay the rents then tax revenue falls, businesses fail because they don't have people to work or buy. It is not us against them. It is our community. Our village!

Re: “Troubled Tenants

Sonoma county was built on backs of the immigrant poor! Your vineyard, cellars folks of the great wine country that is Sonoma County....is pushing out the folks who still make this county great for the greedy transplants to take over with ridiculous rents. Silly people you are certainly shooting yourselfs in foot. I have an idea! Pay the people a living wage that they, we deserve!

Re: “Troubled Tenants

Wow, really, Vickie French? This area still needs teachers, janitors, and food service workers. Should they all commute from Tracy. Good thing you're older - you'd NEVER make it as a young person starting out today. And that's not right.

Re: “Troubled Tenants

Maybe you landlords should be more reasonable, and don't cry about your 'return on investment' when many of you own multiple properties worth millions. Though your money buys you a lot of political influence, the tide is turning against you, and there will be rent control and tougher eviction laws. Why should you be able to evict anyone for any reason, if they haven't broken any terms of their lease and paid their rent in timely fashion? If you want to throw people out on the street so you can refurbish a unit and then charge considerably more in rent for it, you should be obligated to pay moving expenses and relocation fees for the current tenant. So, a 'Just-Cause' eviction law protecting good tenants from greedy and unscrupulous landlords is definitely in order. There are many creative and innovative ways to provide affordable housing with the right policies. We can change many regulations, fees, and zoning laws, to allow easier construction of affordable housing, so it doesn't take years and tens of millions of dollars to accomplish, There are also many older, dilapidated, and existing commercial properties which can be converted to housing, with changes in zoning regulations.

Vicki S. French, why should people born and raised in this area or whom have resided here for decades because of the greed of you and your developer, real-estate speculator, and landlord friends for ever more profit?

Re: “Troubled Tenants

"Combs" refers to Julie Combs, Santa Rosa Council member. Please add this information to the article.

Our community belongs to all who live in it, not only those who happen to own the land and the houses. It's clear that we will are forcing low income people out of the county. That's bad for all of us and for the environment. I support strong rent control.

Re: “Troubled Tenants

The rents are high because of the increased costs to the landlord: taxes, garbage and water rates (when they are paid by landlord), insurance costs and the cost of labor to make repairs. Manna doesn't just fall from heaven you know. Banks give you no return on your savings in today's world so you are always robbing Peter to pay Paul, so to speak. Perhaps some landlords are greedy but most are just trying to cover their butts because owning investment property comes with increased risk today. Often tenants don't hold up their end of the bargain and want to create their own rules which often leads to trouble. They don't really 'GET IT" that they are merely paying for rented space that is not theirs. I'd say get over the prices folks, we live in a high priced and affluent area of the country. It's not like living in the Midwest or the South where rents are considerably lower. If you want lower rents move inland and out of CA. That's my take and I have been a landlord for over 30 years, and no, I'm not a slumlord nor am I in the upper income bracket.

Re: “Homewrecker

Few know my story about my long connection to Feinstein, her husband, his investment groups and the capital markets.

This person is highly deceptive with my story. The hard part - they murdered my relatives a family of five, they also killed my roommate, my gal friend and her daughter in 2005, and the list is over 50 deaths.

There is big little secret around the country - a mad dash to take over Military Bases known as Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) that leads to my posting here


Accenture, Blum, DoD, Rumsfeld and Cheney were in SF just after the San Bruno Explosion - when you visit my blogs you find why I know how they blew up Line 132, killed 8, killed 5 in Walnut Creek and how it links to the Nurse and School Bus accidents.

Everything is staged and likely by the unions
