Re: “The Sea Forager

My first, and basically only, thought, reading this article, was I hope to God he doesn't reveal ALL of the precious secret spots that we have been fishing in the area since we were kids. There's already too many people out there and now, for instance, I can just see the Bolinas shore cheek to jowl with Sunday fisher people. There should be a law against publicly revealing time-honored and sorely won fishing, foraging and hiking spots that are the domain of children and those grown ups who had to "hang out"as children with the other children in-the-know. Instant knowledge is no fair. Aaaaaargh.

Re: “Out of Darkness

You know what would be even more "impressive"? The day that ANY theater company actually casts an Arab in the role of Othello. A "moor" by the name and the times of those days was an Arab - NOT white, NOT african, NOT indian, etc. God forbid anyone should ever actually break with stereotypes and tradition and complete a play as WS actually wrote it.

Re: “Forty Years of Music

I'm going to this festival this year because of the line-up. I've been waiting far too long to get back to the basics of the blues and have a line-up that hasn't toured up and down the west coast for the past year. I do respect and appreciate all past performers but this year is a treat......
I'm disappointed, as I know many others are, for the Bohemian not to mention Bill Bowker and company when reporting about the Russian River Blues Festival?? He has worked harder than anyone to keep the blues alive in and around Sonoma County and I thank you for that Bill Bowker. Lola

Re: “Under the Prairie Sun

" Italian food and talking Rasta." Rasta pasta!
I live on the same property. It's a nice little community. Mooka, Nate and the bunch are great folks, and the somewhat rural ambience is sweet. I encourage those who seek recording, mastering, concert sound, etc. services to check out Prairie Sun, and those wanting to learn the craft ought to consider Prairie Sun's internship program.

Re: “Last Stands

Please keep these excellent, detailed, well-researched cover articles on important issues by Will Parrish coming. Our local daily does so little of such serious, old-fashioned journalism

Re: “Last Stands

Rather than controlling sediment discharge from logging that has filled the "core" coho habitat of Elk River, the Regional Water Board voted to let HRC alter the river channel with heavy equipment from the historically deeply incised channel with long deep pools that are deeply shaded by tall riparian forests to a wide flat "V" shaped channel that lacks sheltering vegetation. The plan is to destroy forever the channel that naturally evolved and supported the North Coast's most thriving salmon runs. The Regional Water Board reasoned that the cold water fishery must be sacrificed so that an industrial waste ditch can be built, at taxpayer expense, that is designed to increase logging's pollution load allocation.

Elk River Residents propose low impact management to encourage the channel to incise down through the eight feet of timber sludge that clogs the channel and entombs spawning gravels and rearing pools. We have notified California Fish and Wildlife and requested permits to proceed prior to early rains this fall. Many residents have volunteered to help remove obstructions to flood water conveyance, including landowners whose homes, farms, and orchards are severely and frequently flooded as a result of the obstructions to flow. Please call or write CA Fish and Wildlife and CDF and ask them to implement the low impact methods that residents have requested since 1998, and/or volunteer to help. Funds, and your efforts are desperately needed. Contact ELKRRA or Elk River Residents' Association at: if you can help.

Residents also propose a restoration forest; one planned to regrow forest cover resembling old growth forest by thinning from below the canopy. The methods are designed to comply with the Timber Production Zoning, but would prioritize the stabilization of the rapidly eroding landscape while sequestering carbon at maximum biological potential. This method is designed to recover the deeply incised channel so important to salmon and residents' continued existence. Forty years of abject regulatory failure to prevent severe cumulative impacts provide no other feasible alternative than a restoration forest.

Re: “Last Stands

William Ericson,
Yes, the Karuk are a tribe in the Klamath River basin. The Kashia Pomo, as you know, are the indigenous people whose ancestral territory includes the Gualala River watershed. These two peoples are separated by a few hundred miles, as are the logging activities this story describes.

Re: “Last Stands

The ''Forest Service'' are the pimps of the Federal Government. They ''service'' industry. They not only sell logging rights, they sell mineral rights, grazing rights and more. Their job is not to protect the forests, but to use them and make money off them. Most of their ''protection'' involves keeping the public away with use fees and closed roads and overpriced campgrounds so you do not see the extent of their pandering. Clear cutting? No problem. If you don;'t think so, go up to the Mount Shasta area and get off road. You'll be appaled. And if you go off road in Oregon or Washington you'll just throw up.

Re: “Last Stands

Karuk are a tribe from way further north. Do you mean, the Kashia Pomo?

Re: “Put a Bird on It

This is very interesting research. Another good example of the interface between humans and the natural order. We still have much to learn about birds and their true benefit to humans. I think tagging birds, like we have tagged other wild animals, will continue to provide us with valuable information like how do birds accommodate to the changing habitats and our environment. And, I hope we keep protecting our environment to provide a healthy place for birds to flourish.

Re: “Put a Bird on It

"but the dark side of his success is that, most likely, he consumed his siblings—not uncommon in the unsentimental world of the barn owl." I'm sorry, this is not factual. They only consume siblings after they have died, or maybe almost died. They do not engage in siblicide.

Also, vineyards that kill birds can never be bird friendly. It's not a few non-native songbirds that get trapped and killed, it's more like thousands. and it's not ok.

I appreciate that vineyards are moving towards non-toxic, predator-friendly practices! Barn owls and bluebirds are a vineyards best friends as long as no poison is used. This is a great steady and much-needed, but there have been others - just recently in fact. Another study was published in the local Ag-Alert paper in April of this year! I look forward to the results of this new study.

Re: “The California Front

The budding politician and gun-owner Keith Rhinehart wants to work within the NRA: "Most NRA members, like myself, are pretty sane, normal people who don't believe you should be able to go to a gun show, buy a gun and walk out."

I'm sure many would like to know what efforts he's making within the NRA to put sane leadership in charge there. Otherwise, his money is just going to keeping in place the current extremists there now.

Re: “Eat More Beef

Mr Natural, my step-father is 90 years old, healthy, and drug-free, and eats meat every day of his life, for lunch and supper. I eat meat at least five days a week. I am 55 years old, an ultramarathoner who runs every single day of the year, without ever incurring injury, and I never get sick. I have a friend who is Sikh, from India, who is vegetarian and is alway suffering from some sort of nutritional deficiency, suffers from migraines, and allergies. What is your point? A person's health is not really as related to diet as much as Americans have been misled to believe. Many other variables factor into a person's health.
