Violating parole with a D.U.I. by many S.F. construction workers took them off their union job sites and returned to San Quentin..
Great coverage that Americans rarely hear about and they need to!!
The majority of people who went to the January 9th meeting, over 200 residents and the majority of residents that filled out the online survey, around 400, made it clear that we demand our heritage trees to stay in the square! But the City Coucil seems to think that putting in more parking is more important than trees or taxpayer opinions. Not only will this kill carbon sequestration but also cause traffic chaos in downtown. Residents NEED to come to the January 26 meeting and let their voices heard. Even if you could care less about the Reunification of Old Courthouse Square you should know that if you drive in Santa Rosa you will be effected by the decisions made. Please come and insist on the City Council to make positive decisions for Santa Rosa's future and not more money exchanges within the "boys club".
LE brutality in Sonoma County is alive thanks to the DA, Sheriff and BOS for not doing their job by holding LE individuals accountable for their misdeeds. Sonoma County has not fired anyone responsible for these misdeeds or even ask department heads to resign. BOS cuts the checks to sidestep the accountability issue of LE misdeeds. The use of liability insurance by Sonoma County Risk Management to cover up Sonoma County mistakes is excessive. A public records request PRA was utilized to retrieve litigation and settlement costs from Sonoma County. These costs averaged $1million per year from year 2000 to 2013. We the taxpayers are responsible for any amount of combined settlement and litigation costs if below $1mil. If the costs are above $1mil, the liability insurance kicks in. This case is just one that has been settled. There are other cases of LE brutality waiting for the BOS to write the checks. The accountablity and transparency of this process by the BOS needs to be highlighted. There was no mention of the litigation costs incurred by Sonoma County to defend this case.
These people aren't normal. Look up each one of their verdicts and let me know where you would put them. I did. They're fine where they are.
Memorial will send their uninsured, and homeless to Sonoma West Hospital. They will not be abe to survive with the government paying 35 cents on the dollar of a hospital bill. I hear taps playing in the distance. RIP
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.
From the beginning the "I hate Obama" faction had one problem. There was a black man in the White House.
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.
worse than Alcatraz is like a zoo with all the cages outside, not normal
Donald has a special interest group of one.
Trump is a joke!
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.
Maybe its time for the Sonoma County Board of Supervisors to reduce the Sheriff's Dept budget for cannabis "enforcement" actions.
This initiative is DOA so long as it continues the ability of locals to ban even tiny outdoor grows. The cops will still be up our butts with this turkey, and Sean will laugh all the way to the bank since we'll have to flock to his stores to buy smoke.
I am a victim of mayhem, torture, attempted murder. Upon 10/04/2011@ Chanate Rd. Santa Rosa, Ca.
I am paralyzed for life.
Kaiser of Santa Rosa, Ca. refuses to "take me out."
I am unable to stop suffering from pain and loss of moving my arms from Judge Brad DeMeo's "hit" for the "as promised" added to the Oakmont located, Clyde and Helen Greco Family Trust.
Billionaires' Clyde and Helen Greco left a substantial "paper trail" while their daughter Caren Greco defrauded me of retirement savings over $400,00. This was from offshore injuries at the New Guerneville Bridge of 10/03/1996.
Beginning back in the early mid-1970's; the Greco's and DeMeo defrauded the Sonoma County taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars thru fraud. The Christian Life Center (Wells Fargo Center) was defaulted in loan of their million dollars from the Clyde and Helen Greco Trust Fund and Cle-Len Mgt. Inc..
They followed "Italy practices" of only recording real estate at one half value as often as available. They are all criminals in attempted murder.

No, it's not about "having choices," although that is what "Compassion and Choices" (formerly The Hemlock Society) wants you to believe. It is about (1) relieving insurers from the cost of your care when you get sick; and (2) immunizing doctors who play along from prosecution, both for murder as well as the making of a false record.
The "protections" this law provides against undue influence over a vulnerable person are wholly illusory. I happen to be Brittany Maynard's aunt, Alison Maynard. I have requested all records required by Oregon law to be created in connection with her suicide, including her written request for the drug; attestation of competency; and diagnosis that the patient has less than six months to live by two doctors, and been denied all of them, on grounds of "privacy." Thus, not even a close relative such as an aunt can obtain assurance the law was followed.
Of course, the lack of these records has led me to another conclusion: that Brittany's "suicide" is a hoax. She is, in fact, a prankster, and there is abundant other evidence, including that the woman holding the framed photo in the picture above is not Brittany, but some model; that it is not legal, under Oregon's law, to obtain the initial terminal diagnosis in another state, then move to Oregon to get the drug; that there is a CURE for the Glioblastoma multiforme tumor, as "60 Minutes" showcased in its March 27th, 2015, edition; that Brittany's uncle is in military intelligence; that the Maynards--my side of the family--were not notified of her marriage, cancer diagnosis, or plan to kill herself, learning about it all from the mass media along with the rest of the world; that there was no funeral; and more. My blog post setting forth my findings is at: therealcolorado.blogspot.com/2015/02/brittany-maynard-my-undead-niece.html.
The article above makes new points about physician-assisted suicide--and is a good one. For the most part, there has simply been hype planted all over the country by C&C, which is funded by George Soros, framing assisted suicide as a "health care option" and a "civil rights measure." It is neither. Brittany's "suicide" was simply the latest in a series of tragedies being staged in this country--with the mass media's full collusion--to advance public policy.
In 1997, Oregon was the first state to pass a “Death with Dignity” Law. It’s a good law, but over 17 years (1998-2014) only 859 people in Oregon took the lethal medication. In fact, 35% of the people who filled the prescription decided not to take the lethal medication.
I’m glad the law is there. It’s an option I might use depending upon my diagnosis. But I’m not going to limit my family's choices and make that our only option.
If I have a stroke the paralysis could require me to need assistance 24/7. Even though I’d be physically handicapped, I could still enjoy the company of my children and grandchildren.
I’ve been a full-time caregiver for a stroke victim. Although it was a very rewarding experience, it was a burden I will not place on anyone in my family.
That’s why my wife and I own LTC insurance. If I become disabled my wife will not have to deplete our savings in order to pay for someone to care for me; nor will she have to risk her own health by trying to get me in and out of the tub and on and off the toilet. We’ll hire the home health aides and send the bill to the insurance company. The emotional burden on her will be hard enough. I don’t want to add the financial uncertainty on top of that.
It’s all about having choices and maximizing our options.
