Re: “Bury the Problem

Biochar systems have so many market applications yet to be cultivated; "Carbon Fodder" feeds for Livestock in the EU, Australia & Japan, Plant Chemical Communications, (plant signaling), even Char building materials such as Biochar-Plasters which block Cellphone signals, the potential markets are massive.

CoolPlanet's investors & CEOs project (assert) that they will be the first Trillion Dollar Company, based on their $1.50/Gal. cost to produce Bio-Gasoline. Biochar the by product.

For a complete review of the current science & industry applications of Biochar please see my 2014 Soil Science Society of America Biochar presentation. How thermal conversion technologies can integrate and optimize the recycling of valuable nutrients while providing energy and building soil carbon, I believe it brings together both sides of climate beliefs.

Re: “Iconic Opening

I'm disappointed. I've been pretty excited about the opening of the Art Museum of Sonoma County only to find out that admission to its Studio 54 themed party, complete with red carpet, is $200/$175, if you're a member. I'm not wanting to go for the soirée but for some art in my neck of the woods. I didn't see a "normal" cost of admission for the exhibit that runs through May 24th in this article or via their website. Way to isolate a lot of us, especially the starving artist. Sheesh!

Re: “The Heretic

Folks who know how to actually practice Holistic Management planned grazing somehow get much better results than university researchers who don't understand it.
I've visited Neil Dennis and Blain Hjertes ranches in Saskatchewan - they are part of a study of 7 farms that over a 3 year period sequestered nearly 9 tonnes of carbon per hectare per year. As Blain says. "All of these farms have had increases in grass production, had a decrease in inputs, are holding more water in the soil and producing more nutrient dense food. Clearly farmers are more profitable, consumers have better food and society has more water holding capacity mitigating floods and mitigating climate change. To view results check out the web site at www.soilcarboncoalition.org"

Re: “Ghost Stories

Right before Tom took over, my friend's dad was the manager. We were about 11/12 at the time and basically lived there and helped him with everything from ushering to sell concessions. I saw many things while hanging there before and after hours. The projection booth ghost was seen many times. Also have seen someone in the balcony on several occasions. I've never been afraid though. Hanging at the Phoenix was partly responsible for me being a ghost hunter myself. Good times!

Re: “The Heretic

Its not a system but holistic management. Anyone who tries to turn it in to a system will fail - as the trial showed.

Re: “The Heretic

Cattle that grazed according to Savory’s method needed expensive supplemental feed, became stressed and fatigued, and lost enough weight to compromise the profitability of their meat. And even though Savory’s Grazing Trials took place during a period of freakishly high rainfall, with rates exceeding the average by 24 percent overall, the authors contend that Savory’s method “failed to produce the marked improvement in grass cover claimed from its application.” The authors of the overview concluded exactly what mainstream ecologists have been concluding for 40 years: “No grazing system has yet shown the capacity to overcome the long-term effects of overstocking and/or drought on vegetation productivity.”

I agree with johnny you. 40 dollars is a lot to pay for community theater.

Re: “High Drama

I've done six shows on the GK Hardt Stage at 6th Street Playhouse, and one of my favorite things to say about it is, "This theater has never let me down." I'm telling you... 6th Street Playhouse is more than just a favorite home to Sonoma County actors, it has a strangely- sentient quality about it. I have great confidence that these woes will soon be water over the falls, and something infinitely better than what has gone before will emerge. ~ Tice Allison

Re: “High Drama

Please listen to what these people are saying. I do not think it is negative and people should not be put down for saying what they believe. Try to figure out why Cinnabar can fill its theater and extend many shows an extra week while 6th Street can't fill its 184 seats. I am a senior and now try to go on Thursday nights because of the increase in ticket prices the last few years. The past two shows on a Thursday night where half full or less. One being about a third full. Look at ticket prices at the JC, Main Street, Spreckels, etc and see if you have priced out a segment of your attending audience of years ago.
What I would like to see improved is amplified sound quality. Harsh unnatural sound, which especially seems to affect female performers is a negative for me. I stopped going to performances at the Raven Theater after one musical a few years ago where the sound was so bad---my group tried a variety of seat locations during the performance---that we stopped going. If there is an equipment problem how about a campaign for new equipment such as was done for a new light board a while back.
You have a very nice facility and good people working there I hope that your financial difficulties are resolved soon and I can enjoy many more years of great performances.

Re: “High Drama

Well... This comment section took a turn for the worst. Shame on you for picking on Taylor and 6th Street as if they are the only theater company to precast. For the past year Sprekels has used the same two girls as the leads in many of their productions, and the JC has used the same girl as their female lead for the last three musicals. PEOPLE LIKE WORKING WITH PEOPLE WHO WORK HARD. The theater community is small and even smaller in Sonoma County so when you find someone who is talented and works hard, why wouldn't you want to work with them? This article was supposed to be about lifting the theater community up, not tearing individuals down. Can we please get back to the core of the article? Supporting local theater? I think what 6th Street did was very brave. Canceling shows they were looking forward to is never EVER easy, but it was smart. Now that they have proper fundraising and advertising, I can't wait to see what comes from them.

Re: “High Drama

The elephant in the room not discussed in this fine article is the question of just how much theatre this area can support and the oversaturation of one particular genre. How practical is it to have every large house doing a Broadway musical (some classics, others not so) and often simultaneously? I too have heard the complaints about repetitive casting from inside and outside the community, and I think it points more towards the issue of repetitive show styles than anything else. Then there's the issue of "recycling" shows throughout the area. Theatre companies often claim that "their" audience isn't another company's audience so there should be no problem in mounting a production of a show that was done elsewhere just last year. So much for growing your audience and reaching out to the larger community. This area has a lot of talented theatre artists who work with many of the local theatre companies. If they really want to survive and thrive, the local theatre companies need to figure out a way to work with each other, too.

Re: “High Drama

Luckily for you BoHo reader, Bonnie & Clyde will be my last show at 6th Street as I have upcoming shows booked in Berkeley and San Francisco - so you will not have to be subjected to me onstage anymore. I do hope you see "Bonnie and Clyde" though. It's a beautiful show with a cast chalk full of non 6th Street performers, including our Clyde who traveled from the East Coast to play the role, and many other talented folk. I feel honored to have played so many fabulous roles - and hope that even though you didnt appreciate my performance, I'm happy that you still supported local theatre. - Taylor Bartolucci

Re: “High Drama

I have heard that comment, about using the same actors repeatedly, from subscribers and theatre-goers, not just actors. Audience-fatigue is real. People want to see new talent, and a theatre will never grow if it becomes too inclusive, and the community doesn't feel it's "their community theatre." If I go to see Kiss Me Kate, Spamalot, Victor, Victoria, Boeing Boeing, Scoundrels,Funny Girl, etc. how likely is it I will want to see the same cast in Bonnie and Clyde? The talent is there, but even Barbra Streisand wore people out after a while, before she took a much-needed break.

Re: “High Drama

Seems we have a disgruntled actor...^^ boooo! What a negative outlook you have on this local company. It shows versatility, not a casting problem. Sonoma County needs to support local theatre and shows.

Re: “High Drama

As harsh as this will be, It'll probably help A LOT if the same actors weren't cast in all the shows. People don't want to go to see the same person every time they go and want to enjoy an amazing show. That's why no one wants to pay/donate. And no one wants to audition for things, knowing that they aren't going to get what they want anyway. Things are never going to change for the theatres, 6th street mostely, if things don't change casting wise.
