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.

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.

Re: “Into the Breach

Stett, I wrote several emails to the editor. Still waiting for an response. As for CVNL they bombarded many of the volunteers with an email inviting them to a thank you event they're hosting. Which is awesome. However 90% percent of those volunteers didn't signup to be added to their master emailing list. This is illegal. Also for them to use this list of volunteers to get further funding for their agency. Email me: viridianae@gmail.com. I would love to talk to you.

Re: “Into the Breach

Stett I believe you should re write your article in its entirety! If you credit yourself as an journalist do the leg work BC if you would have actually been around during the actual incident it would have been very apparent there was no CVNL and red cross sat on their ass. Carlene is a whole other story. Even if you watch news clips you could have wrote a better article.

Re: “Trump Up the Volume

So Trump's 'presidential' vision is to build the world's second "Great Wall" and send all but 'squeaky-clean white folk' somewhere intooblivion- that's when our economy grinds to a halt- without the massive labor force required to pick all of the nation's produce sold here AND abroad.

But Trump's ultimate goal is to say that 'The wall will have been built by American labor!!

I'd rather vote for Bozo the Clown- at least Bozo was genuinely entertaining.

Re: “Into the Breach

Stett Holbrook: your article is inexcusable and insulting to the citizens of Calistoga. This is uninformed and lackluster reporting. My hometown people stepped up within hours to feed, clothe, house and comfort our Lake County neighbors without fanfare. When Red Cross showed up My people were threatened and volunteers were turned away. It's my understanding that this group you speak of (CVNL) did the same. Any research you may have done doesn't reflect any effort. I'm appalled that tha Bohemian would even publish such garbage.

Re: “Into the Breach

CVNL played no role, the citizens of Calistoga did. Red Cross is an absolute joke.... You should do a more thorough job in your investigation. As I read this article I could not help but chuckle at the inaccuracies and the fact that you gave kudos to the wrong folks makes me question your credibility

Re: “Into the Breach

Kat Kosta: The nonprofits mentioned in this story were clearly not the only ones who helped during the fire. And it's clear local volunteers like you played a critical role, as indicated in this sentence: "Within hours of the outbreak of the fire, local volunteers stepped up to help." While I don't mention the good work you did I don't believe the article takes away from your efforts.
Viri Agapoff: The purpose of the CVNL story was to explain their role as the county-designated emergency volunteer center coordinator. There are certainly more stories to tell and I'm interested to hear about your experiences (positive and negative) with CVNL and the work you and others did.
