Re: “So Far, So Near

There are a number of State Parks locally (Sugarloaf Ridge, Armstrong Redwoods) which sit mostly empty most weekdays, but do fill up somewhat on weekends. In any event, you can call Sugarloaf and ask about availability if you don't want to go through the Reserve America, admittedly clunky, and State Parks usually have a set number of first come, first served spots. They are both spectacular natural areas and, while maybe not hip like a winery, truly provide a close-up look at nature, for real. I know, because I was the campground host last summer at Sugarloaf! Awesome job.

President Obama is as much white as he is black. He handles the issues in his own ways based on advisors and staff inputs. He will go into history as a great President. Not perfect but truly a President looking out for his people both black and white.

Re: “We Are Family?

Really enjoy the samples and the folks serving, thanks COSTCO. These are jobs for Senior Citizens and college kids and such. Family providers need full time work (40 hrs/wk). The program itself is a winner and leaves shoppers with a pleasant exprience.COSTCO does many things right.

Re: “Not Ready

How could Trump represent "a silent majority of decent men and women"? He's crass, boastful, and demonstrates he doesn't like millions of Americans. He demonstrates that he represents hateful, ignorant people.

Re: “Not Ready

In 2008 we surely needed the HOPE that Obama offered. We needed a new model of who a President could be. What we got was a clear demonstration that the Civil War is not over, by far; that minorities have not won the battles for Civil Rights, and that we have much more work to be done in all areas before real Freedom (not just the freedom to own guns and drive trucks anywhere you want) can Ring in the US of A.

Re: “Not Ready

From the beginning the "I hate Obama" faction had one problem. There was a black man in the White House.

Re: “Not Ready

Louis, you have overlooked Bernie Sanders -- he is not owned by special interests but, unlike Donald Trump, is not using duplicitous and manipulative "art of the deal" techniques on the American people every time he speaks. Bernie is what you say you want and he has 30 years of being a public servant who works tirelessly for all Americans -- those on both the Right and Left. Bernie is also unique in being a true gentleman, never stooping to power broking, dividing racial groups from each other or running a negative campaign that insults other candidates.

Re: “Not Ready

Donald Trump is the only candidate in either party who is not owned by the special interests of the left and of the right. He represents America's silent majority of decent men and women.

Re: “Consignment Chic

Whoops my big mistake.

The correct address for Mazzy's Closet is 110 N. Main St., Sebastopol

Re: “Consignment Chic

The address for Mazzy's Closet in Sebastopol is incorrect. The correct address is 101 N. Main St. You have it listed as 10 N. Main St. Thanks.

Re: “Music on the Margins

John is a wonderful, crazy guy who I met first in the mid-1970s when he was a teenager. He performed at the Avant-Garde Festivals in Trenton, New Jersey, and slowly grew into one of the most interesting and quirky musicians I've ever known. And is more than 'just' an unknown musician. He donated a kidney. He recorded and distributed prank phone calls. He was the subject of a lecture at Rensselaer by a guy who'd never met him. A famous composer flew across the country just to meet him in person. He's been the subject of a documentary. And he had (still has?) a mechanical monkey. And much more. Too much more. This article is well deserved!

Re: “Music on the Margins

I've known about him since the Eighties and always thought he was hilarious. Glad to see he's still making music on his terms.

Re: “Into the Breach

The spontaneous response by the Calistoga community and volunteers was extraordinary. In the days immediately following the evacuations, hundreds of people stepped forward to help fire victims and evacuees. There were many people who came to the aid of evacuees (including Wendy Lopez, Viri Agapoff and Mimi Quirarte), prior to when CVNL’s Emergency Volunteer Center (EVC) was activated on Thursday, September 16.

Normally, CVNL stands up its emergency volunteer center within hours of a disaster. The delay in activating us as an EVC contributed to confusion and misunderstanding about our role in disaster response. CVNL is one of many who play a role in disasters – there are national and local partners that step up in what can be a very chaotic and emotional time. We honor and recognize the heroic efforts made by both individuals, businesses, and organizations.

During our time on site, no volunteers or donations were turned away. Through our business partnerships, and at no expense to the county, we transported 18 semi-trucks filled with 400 pallets of donated goods to the evacuees.

With respect to the email CVNL sent on Friday, we have not, and will not, add anybody to our mailing list without them opting in, which was clearly stated in the email. The purpose of the communication was to invite those who had volunteered their time to a celebration in their honor. If people have specific questions about CVNL’s role as an EVC, they can reach us directly at 415.479.5710.
