Re: “Fish Rap

Salmon aquaculture may be banned in California waters, but it is not banned in federal waters just 3 miles off the coast. This may be a 'non-issue' today, but offshore net pen aquaculture is currently being considered in the Gulf of Mexico and Hawaii. This issue may come up in the EEZ off the coast of California far sooner than you, or the public, may believe.

Re: “Fifth Dimensions

Alice Chan is correct in noticing this mistake, which I hope can be corrected in the online version.

Re: “New Rules

Some serious pot farming is now going on in Rural Residential zoned properties. Rural Residential can be 1, 2, up to 3 acres, often with just a small old rental house. Properties are being leased at a premium to "farmers," much more than the rent on a small old house.

I'm getting skunked-out by the smell.

You should also note that outdoor pot farms over 2,000 square feet are supposed to be required to get a State Water Board permit which concerns runoff, and other water quality concerns. The lazy ****'s do not seem to be enforcing the requirement at this point.

Re: “Fifth Dimensions

They both STINK. Evans backing by the SEIU, public employee union buying influence and endorsement by the likes of Michael Allen. And Hopkins endorsed by Eric Koenshoffer (or however it's spelled) and Mike Martini, and backed by the Sonoma County Alliance. All these things are disqualifying. Sonoma County alliance backed candidates to date have always voted in lock-step. I am disgusted and will vote for neither.

Re: “Fifth Dimensions

Very unfortunate mistake in the first word of the fourth-to-last paragraph. The sentence currently reads "Evans recently released a video where she rattles off the "bullshit" charges coming from Evans in a field dotted with cow plop."
The first word should be "Hopkins," the maker of that cow-plop filled video. A correction would be good.

Re: “Fifth Dimensions

More and more people are beginning to realize that Defined Benefit plans like public pensions are not sustainable, including the private sector which has more or less done away with them. Here is my solution to this looming crisis that is only going to get worse without any correction of course:

Please help spread the word...

Re: “BoBnB, Anyone?

I have been thinking for quite a while how I could offer affordable housing on my property. I would be willing to expand an existing building to a studio or one bedroom. But I am concerned about the county examining my property - especially the septic (although I believe my septic is very good). Also, I understand if the county were to approve a plan, the "affordable home", it would be permanently deeded as such.
Don't know if my information is correct.

Re: “BoBnB, Anyone?

Fantastic idea. What's more, there's no lack of equilibrium in "ethical real estate". It's just community focused rather than individual rights focused. I am not sure about focusing on one person's inalienable rights as something that has been working, because it has led to confirmation bias, selective perception, entitlement, and an insular lack of empathy. I think the future will see more of this equitable community focused capitalism, with more profit sharing and checks and balances on those who choose to be so self-centered they alter the character of everyone else's town.
