Re: “13 Year-Old Boy Fatally Shot by Sonoma County Sheriff's Deputies

Before we blame the ignorant parents, first look at the makers and retail outlet that sold that item and made a financial profit.

Re: “Rohnert Park: The Walmart Friendly City

There was no legal reason to deny. If the City Council had denied, Walmart could have sued, and overturned the denial in court, then gone ahead and built anyway.

The bias of the liberal media establishment never ceases to amaze me, but the onesidedness of this report reaches new heights. Or is it "plumbs new depths?"

Re: “EXTENDED PLAY: An interview with Genevieve DeGuzman about the benefits of Coworking

Great interview! Coworking is definitely a growing phenomenon and not ready to slow down any time soon. It's been so positive in the ways it has helped small businesses develop themselves by providing them with a not-so-expensive office where collaboration is inspiring. I found a blog which centers around the coworking/startup world, they recently published 2 interviews with founders of coworking spaces. Very interesting, check it out here:

Re: “The Old-Name Game: Santa Rosa's Disappearing Landscape

I suddenly had a memory of "going out to coffee" at the old El Rancho Tropicana, and wondered where the heck it went.....I guess that's Target now ?
You forgot another SR icon - the funky red oriental-shaped Chinese restaurant on Mendocino near what is now Adel's.
And Holliday Bowl (though Old Mexico and their bowla's are still there).
And downtown "the hill" that was leveled, next to "Wolf Coffee," where silly "alternative" teenagers hung out, some panhandling.
Jalisco's is still around, as is Lincoln Arts Center, and the good old Flamingo Hotel !!
How we lost Petrini's I cannot understand - I remember WE eves were the "meet-market."
And the funky old Molsberry's Market (A&B?) on Yulupa eventually became Food For Thought and now Whole Foods.
And Crystal's Corner on Yulupa is still there.....
**but alas, the "Milk-Stand" was torn down long time ago - I'd buy $.10 Jolly Ranchers there after school.**
I remember when the 7-Eleven and Baskin-Robins sat next to a field in Bennett Valley.
And the Payless across the street.
We had a Long's over there too - I miss Long's.
And the "castles" at the top of Medica Rd. that my friend lived next to - I think still there, but accessible from a different street.
How about those sewer pipes one could walk through in Roseland ? (always wanted to try that one).
How about the "Baby Tree" in the old Community Hospital ?
I went up there shortly after Sutter took over the premises to see my pic on the baby tree, and sadly it was gone - a nurse said it was removed and put in storage only weeks before.
My old park on North Street is no longer the fun little place I remember.
I still call the LBC the LBC. Ode to Luther Burbank !
What a shame the Copperfield's building was renovated - SHAME SHAME SHAME !!!
Oh, the list goes on......

Re: “Watch Cotati Police Kick Door In, Tase Resident

A swat team for a family quarrel with children present? This would never have happened when the Peace and Freedom Party ran the City of Cotati circa 1970s. The police chief was a full blooded Native American and the Mayor later worked for United Way.

Re: “Eye of the Beholder

I've read the story twice now, and I still don't know why I put that giant eyeball there.

Yeah, what IS up with that eyeball, anyway?

Re: “Letters to the Editor: Oct. 1, 2014

Dear Editor: America is hooked on war, and although some Americans might not realize that, you can be sure the rest of the world does, as it looks at Afghanistan, Iraq and other places around the world where the U.S. has fought wars, threatened to fight wars, sent armed forces or launched missiles in their stead. They're so ignorant of the rest of the world, the last thing they need to be doing is meddling in Afghanistan and Iraq. As the old saying goes, "Power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely."

It's incredible that the governments of the world are on track to invest nearly a trillion dollars a year in killing people. You can't tell me that much is spent on weapons for "defense" and "self-protection." War is profit to many U.S. weapons makers and manufacturers, who make enormous amounts of money selling arms and material not only to the U.S. government but also to many others around the world.

They call them terrorists because the world hates. It seems to me that people who kill others without proof of their guilt, or even without being sure who they're killing, are terrorists themselves.

Re: “Fighting for a Living Wage

Thanks, Luis - you're right.
SoCo Supes say they want to fight poverty but the words "upstream investment" come up too frequently in the conversation. It's code for "A stitch in time saves nine" planning - going for prevention instead of repair.
Unfortunately it often means yet another institutional structure.
I say what's more "upstream" than our pregnant daughters and our grandchildren? If you raise my homecare wage from $11.65 an hour to $15 an hour then I can buy the kids and grandkids vitamins, raincoats, bus tickets and decent food.
Doesn't get much more "upstream" than that.
The Living Wage Ordinance could end up saving the county more money than it will be putting out. I believe it will.

Re: “Say No to Prop 1

Further focus for a real water solution is to immediately stop building cities and subdivisions where there isn't sufficient water available to serve the new residents. California MUST stop sending water away from its source. Californians must learn to live with the water that is available on site. We've seen what happens when water is sent hundreds of miles away, depriving the indigenous wildlife and environment of the water they need. We have to banish the idea that we can build communities without regard for where the water is going to come from.

Re: “The Old-Name Game: Santa Rosa's Disappearing Landscape

I went to Santa Rosa Junior College back in 1968-70. We used to eat at the Artic Circle Drive-In. I remember that big plastic white chicken statue called " Acey Bird" When did that place leave Santa Rosa ? Also I remember eating at Rocky,s Pizza Parlor in back of the college on Steele Lane.

Re: “Is Raley's Going the Way of Walmart?: Grocery Strike Goes Into Day Four

He said Joyce Teel is worth 1 billion, not that she made that much in profits or sales. Also, Raley's never opened their books. How can you all be so certain about what Raley's profit margin is if they've neve opened their books? Raley's is privately owned, there is no public record as per how much the company is really worth, how much their profits really are, or their profit margin. So, your math is a waste of time, Concerned Citizen. You don''t have the facts because Raley's never made them available.
