Re: “The California Front

The budding politician and gun-owner Keith Rhinehart wants to work within the NRA: "Most NRA members, like myself, are pretty sane, normal people who don't believe you should be able to go to a gun show, buy a gun and walk out."

I'm sure many would like to know what efforts he's making within the NRA to put sane leadership in charge there. Otherwise, his money is just going to keeping in place the current extremists there now.

Re: “Eat More Beef

Mr Natural, my step-father is 90 years old, healthy, and drug-free, and eats meat every day of his life, for lunch and supper. I eat meat at least five days a week. I am 55 years old, an ultramarathoner who runs every single day of the year, without ever incurring injury, and I never get sick. I have a friend who is Sikh, from India, who is vegetarian and is alway suffering from some sort of nutritional deficiency, suffers from migraines, and allergies. What is your point? A person's health is not really as related to diet as much as Americans have been misled to believe. Many other variables factor into a person's health.

Re: “The California Front

What the Congressman is a complete joke. Gun Control costs people lives, it does not save them. Look at all the mass shootings, they took place in gun free zones. Additionally, he speaks highly of California and it's ability to pass Gun Control laws that Governor Brown will sign. He simply neglected to mention that most of all the laws passed in California violate our Civil Rights by violating the Constitution's 2nd Amendment.

These laws will do little but make criminals bolder knowing the average citizen will not be able to defend themselves. They also forgot some minor details about California, we are in DEBT to almost the tune of $2,000,000,000,000.00. The Democrat Oligarchy that runs the state is kicking that figure down the road for now.....

Re: “The California Front

If "a vote, any vote" was so important, then why did EVERY Democrat vote against the 2 bills Republicans offered in the US Senate??? Come up with a clever line to explain their craven hypocrisy - we'll wait

Re: “Of Water and Wine

Angwin. Howell Mountain, Napa County, under massive logging\deforestation proposals. Conversion to Vineyard is the #1 threat to environment. Ground water depletion, climate change, habit loss, wildlife migration corridors blocked, streams destroyed. Why interview a dweeb like Smith? He is a mad man.......

Re: “Of Water and Wine

Great article. Thank you Stett, for writing it and for publishing it in the Bohemian. I live on a hillside in the Napa Valley about a mile from the proposed Calistoga Hills Resort. A neighbor of mine cleared many acres of beautiful hillside forest and planted vineyard in its place. The chainsaws, tractors, and excavators were operating at all hours and days of the week on and off over several years time. The county and the state have no issue with a clear-cut like this, and I don't think he is done yet as there are still some trees left on his property. I wonder how many more "conversions" will be taking place on the hills of this county, since there is no agency that restrains greedy owners from cutting all the trees on a property.

Re: “Of Water and Wine

This is exactly why big wine money wants to elect Hopkins; to continue their push onto our remaining hillsides and coastal hillsides. Come on Sonoma county, get out from behind your I-phones and help elect Noreen Evans. It's not "Imagine if she wins" we need you in the streets talking to your neighbors and fighting for what's at stake here.

Re: “Of Water and Wine

Though there are problems in Napa, they seem far ahead of Sonoma County in reigning in the over-growth of the wine industry, and thus preserving food farming and rural diversity. That's why Napa vintners such as Paul Hobbs and Joe Wagner are moving some of their operations out of Napa and into Sonoma County and beyond. For more information, go to www.winewaterwatch.org

Re: “Crude Awakening

With a weak coastal commission and a big business dominated Sonoma County Board of Supervisors, Noreen Evans will help effectively push back Big Oil and Big Wine and Big real estate. Take back our coast and save our environment.

Re: “Crude Awakening

This article reveals yet another reason for electing environmentalist Noreen Evans as the 5th District Supervisor. She would be more able to stand up to Big Oil and its damage to the environment, including the climate, as well as to Big Wine. It is our habitat that provides jobs, not the corporations that rape nature.
