@David Yun, ha ha ha ha ha ha. I hope you're joking.
I think David works for KTVU.
Really, David? Really?
Ouch. HOW did they go for this???
i dont even get it...she pronounced it "Fook" not "f*ck" so what is the mistake...its the guy's name after all?
It's going to be a great event!
Come meet our congresswoman and learn how she overcame the odds, provided for her family as a single mother, fought for women's rights in both private and public arenas, and became an inspiring mentor for so many of us!
This was awful! A few pops, then nothing. "Technical difficulties" ... They should refund everyone their money.

Great article Stephen - The Sonoma OFA grows stronger everyday.
OFA welcomes volunteers, there is much work left to do. We need help making phone calls to supporters in Republican districts, tabling for signature petitions, writing letters to the editor, and visiting Mike Thompson's office. If you want to make a difference email Linda Hemenway firstname.lastname@example.org
I heard about generators-electric in Cloverdale through a friend. do they really charge up as fast as they say they do? I think its amazing! What else should I expect before buying one?
Blessed are the whistle-blowers, for they disclose and denounce injustice and evil in the world.
More than two thousand years ago, a whistle-blower Jewish rabbi named Yeshua from Nazareth publicly denounced the religious theocracy of his time. Seriously threatened and undermined, the then religious establishment persecuted and had the Jewish whistle-blower killed. The world did that then, it still does now.
Bring them (B. Manning and E. Snowden) home.
>and the surveillance state are one and the same
You numskull, then what does that make China?
Now that Congress has been schooled in what's really going on at the NSA, maybe they'll get off their asses and do something. That is of course the congressional body is tech savvy enough to ask the right questions. From early reports, the crash course of Domestic Spying for Dummies conducted behind closed doors was enough to piss a few folks off. Thats a start!
To Reply to Ethan:
These are great questions, which are easily answered:
"Whats is the source of renewable energy?"
It depends on what they can negotiate, but will be at least 33% renewable, and could be as high as 100% renewable if you want pay whatever that 100% renewable rate will be. RECs will be used to supplement this -- renewable energy credits from clean energy projects around the country. These are the same credits PG&E likes to brag about using, except SCP will be using them as a bridge to local renewable energy.
"How are we promoting "Go Local" by purchasing energy from out of state multi-national companies… How are we decreasing our carbon footprint through supporting companies with some of highest reported negative environmental externalities?"
The BEST part about Sonoma Clean Power is that the ratepayer money over the years will be invested to both improve local energy efficiency and create local energy projects, which is way above and beyond what any other CCA is going on around the country. PG&E definitely doesn't do this.
These local energy projects will create:
Local energy security
A buffer between us and rising and falling prices of the energy market, which is HUGE.
Do a web search for FAQ and Sonoma Clean Power to find their pdf that addresses a lot of this stuff.
Who will be playing drums?
The questions being asked by the people remains the same.....
Whats is the source of renewable energy?
Only 1 out of the four companies generates renewable energy - NRG
How are we promoting "Go Local" by purchasing energy from out of state multi-national companies?
How are we decreasing our carbon footprint through supporting companies with some of highest reported negative enviromental externalities? How are we going to internalize these negative externalities?
really? is the an objective piece of journalism that really discusses the issues? Sad to see such biased reporting. How many schools in the county are surrounded by vineyards? What is the positive economic impact in the community? I rather have productive businesses paying local taxes (going towards EDUCATION), than abandoned properties full of drug addicts (we all know too well that our town unfortunately has many). People of Sebastopol, why are you always so against any positive change?
Shame on You for that ridiculous apology, and honestly What a bunch of Garbage! Who Cares why they were called to the house, or by whom! It's plain as day there were NO Exigent Circumstances requiring Police to breakdown the door. They Issued UNLAWFUL commands to these homeowners, and BURGLARIZED their home and ASSAULTED them when the Owners refused to comply with the commands. Police have no authority to come onto private property without a Warrant or Emergency/Exigent Circumstances. Neither of those conditions were met. These criminals with Badges should be in Federal Prison for civil rights violations.... since we know the Sheriff is too much of a Coward to charge them as they should be!
U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder is heading to Capitol Hill , where he’s expected to be grilled over the Justice Department’s decision to secretly seize the work, home and cellphone records used by almost a hundred reporters and editors at the Associated Press. On Tuesday, Holder defended the move as a necessary step in a criminal probe of leaks of classified information.
The use of the Espionage Act, to essentially silence whistleblowers within the government—Kiriakou, Drake and others, although Kiriakou went to jail on—pled out on another charge—the FISA Amendment Act, which allows for warrantless wiretapping, the National Defense Authorization Act, which allows for the stripping of American citizens of due process and indefinite detention. And it is one more assault in a long series of assault against freedom of information and freedom of the press.
And I would also, of course, throw in the persecution of Julian Assange at WikiLeaks and Bradley Manning as part of that process all of these measures to essentially shut down the freedom of information, as symptomatic of a reconfiguration of our society into a totalitarian security and surveillance state. One where anyone who challenges the official narrative, who digs out cases of torture, war crimes—which is, of course, what Manning and Assange presented to the American public—is going to be ruthlessly silenced.
