The Author obviously never lifted a finger to read Agenda 21 or do any sort of investigative reporting.... just regurgitating what other people say. No wonder we are being usurped by the New World Order.... If people understood the main goal of the UN is to depopulate the planet and enslave who is left in the end, maybe they would "get it". The ultimate goal may not happen in the immediate future but I would think people would be slightly concerned about their progeny and future generations and resist laying the groundwork for it now. I highly recommend any intelligent person with the courage to admit our government lies and cannot be trusted to give this subject some very serious consideration. The global elite run the United Nations and they want the population down from 7.5B to 500M as shown on the Georgia Guidestones, the "10 Commandments" of the New World Order. They will be your "god" and it will NOT be pretty or even humane... The Eugenics movement is the same people behind this take-over and with Obama's recent Dictatorial behaviour, it is clearly they are closing in on our freedoms to condition us to be under their control.
Alejandro Moreno S._______ Non-trainable?.....I smell french fries from biodiesel...The Sonoma County Recorders office describes the parcel owned by the State Of California. Good luck in your thinking.
Having had a few years membership in NRA I finally decided to just say no to the BS and quit them. All they want is more $$$. I asked them why didn't they ask Bush and Cheney for a few million after they walked out with over 11 billion in war profits from their watch.
I do own a collection of semi auto rifles and WWII combat rifles that are not for hunting. I like to go out and burn off a few clips and I do keep the weapons for self protection. I hunted a lot as a boy until a tour in Vietnam which caused me to swear to never take another life be it animal or human unless it was to save a life, mine or anothers.
I served as a fed LEO for some years and never fired my arms once while on duty. I was with a fellow LEO who shot a unarmed man carrying a surveyors stake he was carving on to make a play sword for his little boy. Officially the guy charged the trigger happy LEO with a sword? Shooter was exonerated from any charges as it was a clean shooting, even though the victim was not wanted on any warrant we went to serve at wrong address. I'll wager money most hunters aren't members of NRA or Tea Party members. We all cannot be John Wayne or Rambo. But some of us did serve our country and experienced what a firearm can do to another human being. I still have nightmares about it. To blame Obama for all the firearms sold to Mexico is a joke. It is a no brainer that firearms dealers on the borders of Texas and Arizona are the real blame. But hey don't go there it is all about American free enterprise, right?
Just because something is legal, doesn't make it right. Legality is a cop-out for when something smells bad, and feels wrong. If it looks bad, and smells bad, then there is something in there that's rotten. Trust your nose.
And just because you were never employed as a contractor, is not a reason to discount someone's opinion on this matter. Those trees belonged to the public, period. What their value is relative to the size of the project does not diminish their importance, nor does it diminish the stench, public or private.
Sounds like a good place to stay away from. Never heard of most music performers? What happened to the Dream Bowl concerts with three top bands for $2?
To all who listen:
we all have mothers and fathers. When is the time when profit makes them homeless?
I hope the comedy acts are as good as the musical ones!
While I agree that the public is getting ripped off, there is nothing illegal going on.But perhaps, deals were made before hand that we are unaware of. That's how money is made, saddly.,
"Open space is not CalTrans property.
They own so much land to enable drayage services to operate.
Yes, the isles of Redwoods were inspiring.
But the highway is set up wrong in many areas due to growth.
$30.5 million dollars will help in increasing safety, width of roadway, greater travel , sidewalks, at severe locations. The trees are not the highway but they sure were coming along in making Hwy. 101 North appear as Hwy. 280, San Mateo County. Just patience and volunteer planting may help out after completion and new locations to provide visual Redwood trees.
Are you planning to pay for the dredging of the Petaluma river, harbor, turning basin, channel, creek drainage, floods are coming...Set aside twelve million dollars its bad, real bad. I would be embarrassed for interfering with the stewards of the Petaluma River and their operations with asphalt and moving gravel from barges. They took care of the community. You want to cut them off from South County grandfathered Union sites, U.S. Longshoreman sites. Shame on you and your blues. Accept change and plant/work on your own property away from the highway. It works for my tree forest from the 50' Cedars taken from the Trinity Alps as one foot seedlings.
$30.5 million dollar contract and you're snivling on trees planted upon CalTrans land?
Bridges, overpasses frontage roads. big concrete pours, creek pile driving, column boring, land stabilization, slope. water diversion, demolition of concrete recycling, staging areas, etc.
Were you ever employed as an estimator for highway construction.
No, I wonder what you print has any basis to business.
The gift of 200 trees to Sturgeons Historic Mill on Greenhill Rd . Seb. was wonderful for public school services.
The only running steam powered mill perhaps in the U.S. and they receive local classes of school kids being shown the original way of milling.
The trees will be replanted and used as visuals, sound barriers, etc.
David, Thanks for letting us know what is going on. I've been so disturbed with seeing all the redwoods being taken down... Wish I had known before, wonder if we could have stopped it??? So sad... Speaking of the Gateway to Sonoma County, whatever happened to the Dutra building? Is it still in court?
Since we seem to be transitioning to the much-vaunted "Wine Country", does that mean that CalTrans is going to start planting grapes alongside the new and improved 101? There will be at least 3-4 years before a landscaping and revegetation plan is decided by CalTrans and SCTA, so there will be an even longer period for drivers and visitors to stare at freshly mowed bare land.
In Petaluma, CalTrans is building a formulaic new South Petaluma Boulevard Interchange, which not only "required" cutting the entire heron and egret rookery trees (yeah, the lowly eucalyptus), but is also going to grace the Gateway to Sonoma County with a 40' high standard issue overcrossing and 4 traffic lights for southbound commuters, where there are none now.
CalTrans: not known for grace or design, no less concern about local traffic congestion.
It was horrifying to read this article and realize that nothing has changed since 1960 when the school committee in Sausalito launched the first integration attempt of the schools by removing me and 5 boys from Bayside school and bused us into the MLK (Richarson Bay School) in 1960. It is an abomination to hear that nothing has changed, in the self proclaimed, " most progressive state in the nation". How can it be that there is still a segregated Marin City and an elitist Sausalito? What century are you in?????
Instead of addressing the toxic degradation of the segregation of Marin City from Sausalito , the town of Sausalito now seeks to promote further segregation by funding a charter school in Sausalito and busing for" the rest of the students of Sausaltio to MLK."
The segregation of students in Sausalito and Marin City led to race riots when all students joined together at Tamalpais High School in 1960. This system of segregation led to horrific violence at the high school as students tried to accomodate to the new cultures that were totally foreign to them. This segregation was and continues to be a travesty.
This article speaks about creating a charter school in Sausalito for some students and "dumping all the other students in MLK." This would be exactly the case should this proposal be agreed upon by the town. It is shameful.
I ask that you ALL consider carefully the fact that there should be no Marin City...Sausaltio should catch up with the rest of the nation and integrate the two areas, with low- income housing available throughout the two areas and thus stopping the perpetuatiion of the cruelty of segregation for all of its citizens, the most valuable being children.
The meeting that finalizes this deal is tonight and is open to the public.

Meeting Location: 200 Phillips Drive, Marin City, CA 94965
I just ran across this article and your comments. I want to thank you for such wonderful testimonies. I've been a member of Ripon Grange for almost 60 years. I grew up in it as my parents were beekeepers here and husband and family carry on the tradition. The members all are long-time friends and the traditions and support for families, small town and farm interests is still on-going in this area. Our membership slips a little each year but we hope to come through in a strong position to build support. The Prop 37 aspect is one I hadn't thought of, though. Very interesting!
@ Grace McNamee Decker, until you have lived through an event like Virginia Tech (like I have), you are just speculating like the rest. Take it from a guy that was there, if I was carrying, (or any other trained, responsible person) was carrying, the count would not have reached over 10.
This is a bunch of hog wash. Ari, why haven't written about Eric Holder and Barack Obama and the thousands of guns (Which led to hundreds of murders in Mexico) they illegally sold to cartels. Those individuals are the ones who should not own guns . Your a hunter?? I doubt it , you should thank the NRA they have been the only ones that have truly stood up to our authoritarian government on guns.
Lastly, did you hear the story 2 days ago about what happened in Sacramento?
"California family was enjoying the Christmas holiday as the children were having a sleepover when a home intruder broke into their home. The homeowner, who was looking to protect his family took action and shot and killed the invader. A gun battle occurred at 3:30 A.M. on Saturday morning outside of the home. The homeowner was treated for gunshot wounds along with two other suspects.
The Identification of the deceased home intruder has not yet been released. 21-year-old Thomas Ordonaz, who was also injured in the shooting was later arrested on charges of assault with a deadly weapon and accessory."
I suppose you didn't hear this one did you? Possibly more children would have been dead if this man was not able to defend himself with his own guy. I hope that you follow up on your last garbage article with something about this event!
Thank-you, Ari Levaux, for clearing up a misconception. Not knowing any hunters, I've always assumed that they walked hand-in-hand with the NRA. I hope this inspires other non-NRA hunters to speak out.
Q: How many NRA members does it take to change a light bulb?
A: 4,300,000. One to start changing the bulb until shot dead by a psychotic relative using a weapon bought for the NRA member's personal protection. 4,299,999 to claim that the only problem the US has with guns is that there are not enough of them.
