Furthermore, he admitted to "peeking" in an interview with a detective, and that he wasn't drunk, just buzzed and amazingly he didn't even know the woman's name.

Re: “Decarceration Nation

So if a guy rapes me, Martinot wants to put me in a room to talk to him, instead of putting him in jail. Wow, that's brilliant. That's how I want to spend my days, if that ever happens to me. I definitely want to spend my recovery days looking at the guy that raped me, and knowing he's still walking free, and probably choosing his next victim.

Re: “Pastie Treats

Please, Over-the-hill gang appears @ Christy's in Santa Rosa,Ca.

The county thrives on young-blood, Hello?

This picture above looks like a 45 year-old, "witch."

And lots of history of "MDMA," observers from "Burning Man."

Re: “The Telltale Text

This is woefully inept reporting. It appears as if the Bohemian has done nothing more than file a series of public records requests and use that as the basis for skewering a competing news organization. I can't say whether the assertions in this story are true - that the PD's ownership is influencing coverage of a favored politician - they very well may be. But journalism - good journalism - owes an obligation to prove that. Here, the author has clearly fallen short. He takes one example, the bosco-carillo text after the lopez tragedy, and uses that to make a leap of logic backward to suggest that a similar thing may have happened after Carillo's arrest. No other hard evidence is provided, just circumstantial "proof" that may not prove anything. Had the author presented this in a court of law he would have been laughed out of the courtroom by both judge and jury. This story Is akin to a prosecutor arguing, "Well the defendant has done the crime once, so clearly he's done It before!" Thankfully, our legal system has protections built in for this. In journalism, that duty rests with a skilled editor. Sadly, in this case at least, it doesn't appear the Bohemian has one.

Re: “Back Yard Rambles

How right this article is. K & A is small, but what comes out of this small kitchen is always
something so tasty. With every corner in our towns a McDonalds, etc. you will be so
glad you take the drive to the little town of Tomales and see what Amy has whipped up.

Re: “Dharma Bummer

This article has factual errors and does not reflect the large number of people and Sonoma County environmental groups fighting this large-scale industrial printing press near Salt Point State Park. It makes it sound as if it's just a few neighbors.

Get the REAL story with the CORRECT facts.

Re: “Homeless Front

This is a very moving and informative story. I don't know how any military person returning home after serving on active duty in Iraq or Afghanistan COULD NOT have PTSD. The terror of both what they did (in the name of our country) and what they experienced over there would really mess up anyone. Then, coming home to an entirely different reality with their recent military training and experiences and trying to fit into their old lives and relationships is a further corkscrew.

IMHO, the problem is at the front end and that's really where the focus should be.
Defending our country on our soil is one thing, engaging in an optional war is really unfair to those who we ask to serve as our surrogates. Those who believe in starting such a war should be the only ones who should serve in it. I understand that all those who serve do so in a volunteer capacity...we don't have a draft. However, some of them see no other option in their lives and others naively believe that the benefit they receive (in experience, money, education, personal growth and responsibility) will outweigh the horrific blowback of the experience. Though not all service people serving in war end up with such debilitating PTSD that it's nearly impossible for them to function normally in our society, I have a hard time believing that most of them don't have varying degrees of PTSD.

When did Mac and Cheese multiply like rabbits in every hip place across the country? When did rich people start eating poor people food? It's a cheap starch worth a nickel and sold for ten dollars.

Re: “The Guerneville Flood Project: Rowboats at Abby's Playland

I boated past there many time growing up. It's part of the fond memories I have of the area. People who didn't live on The River would always say how tragic it must have been to be flooded in. We River Rats knew it was just part of winter on The River. The bigger floods were always bad. That intersection, however, flooded at least once a year when I was a kid and there would always be a picture in the news with the caption saying something to the effect that flood victims were fleeing. A lot of the time, though, it was people like my family boating to the bridge so we could get groceries. Then we'd boat back and drive home.

Jackie's correct, it was directly across the other side of drake road from pee wee golf all 3 were there during this time (J's, Pee Wee, Abby's). Abby's was home of a huge super slide and at one point had an arcade, that's all I remember :)
