Re: “Pot Topics

$70 for a daypass? That's completely unreasonable.

Re: “Standing Tall

I am encouraged to see the Bohemian publish Sheperd's article about Standing Rock's efforts to stop the Dakota Access Pipeline. This issue is not getting enough coverage in the media and the honest coverage has mostly come from independent journalists so I appreciate seeing this in a local paper very much. I attended both actions in Santa Rosa on the 15th and know our community will continue coming together to support Standing Rock on the long road ahead. Please be sure all or your friends and family know about this and don't assume they have heard. These are reliable sites for donations, information about what is happening on the ground and actions nationwide :

Re: “Standing Tall

Thank you for Shepherd Bliss's article on Standing Rock. It is essential to have this kind of thorough coverage, as local, national and, already, international awareness grows.
Well done Bohemian!
And thank you Shepherd.

Re: “Standing Tall

Great to see this article by Shepherd on this very important ongoing effort by Water Protectors and allies. One correction is the cost of the pipeline is in billions not millions - 3.8 billion. Many from this area have traveled up and are helping in their way. Those of us behind have many ways to contribute as Shepherd points out.

What can we do about it? There is a fourth option--REJOICE!

Re: “Letters to the Editor: November 2, 2016

The follow-the-money letter is hard to follow. The writer grumbles about receiving political mailers from lackeys/handlers of Lynda Hopkins. What he means is that he got some mail from an independent political committee that Hopkins has no control over; Noreen Evans has verified that reality in regard to independent groups supporting her.

However, the letter oddly refers to lackeys/handlers. A lackey is a manservant, houseboy, or a flunky; while a handler in this context would be a person who actually manages a political candidate. The metaphors are thus confusingly mixed.

The rest of the letter is short on substance but full of fallacy and incivility. Eric Koenigshofer, who supports Hopkins, is effectively labeled a pig, and Lynda Hopkins is called a toady. The first epithet is uncivil, and the second is sexist. Why does the writer feel the need to resort to the fallacies known as ad hominem attacks and guilt by association?

Lynda Hopkins is no toady. She is a strong woman who will serve the best interests of the entire Fifth District as our next supervisor.
