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: “Cannabis Conundrum

Quoting from the piece, "Yet buried in the pages of the proposition is a specific change to the licensing framework. In just a handful of words, the AUMA creates a new cultivation license with no limit on the scale of cultivation, effectively repealing protections for small farms that were enacted by the state Legislature."

Unless a state ballot measure is a CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT, rather than a simple ballot measure, anything and everything can be changed by the state legislature. It is more work and money to lobby to change it to Craft Cannabis people's liking but it could and should happen. All this potential gloom and doom of wiping out the small grower can be changed by the legislature, especially if the elected Prohibitionists finally realize, as some of them already have, that Craft Cannabis cultivation is a sizeable part of their constituents' local economy, and has been in some parts for 30-40 years--sort of kill the goose that lays the golden egg theory! Now that it is in the "mainstream", Craft Cannabis money flowing in the local economy is bigger than ever. Allow the local economy to be killed and they will be voted out of office and replaced. The legislature can change whatever they want by passing future legislation, slyly or overtly, good or bad. The Craft Cannabis side just has to work harder for that to happen to what the Cannabis people like. That means people like Hezekiah and his organization has to raise more funds and hire more lobbyists than they have now. Cannabis is in mainstream politics all across the country and the pro-Cannabis PAC groups have to work it like all the other special interest lobby groups.

In all the states that have passed adult use rec legal, the original ballot measure provisions have been tweaked and outright changed from their original intent. Legislatures will change future ballot measures everywhere in the states that pass adult use/rec legal. It just means and boils down to more work for the Cannabis PACs.

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: “Bitter Is Better

More often than not when we fire up the grill, there is a chicory present. They transform to a tender in places, crisp in others texture with lovely bittersweet flavor.

Re: “Uncle Sam’s River Dance

As Guerneville residents we try to support our community. We set up our packed in chairs and bought 2 chicken sandwiches for $28.00. Then spent $14.00 for a beer and a very tiny glass of wine served from a box. As a dj boomed his music from one side of tbe street the amps on the laser stage competed with music of their own. We waited for something spectacular or even just patriotic to happen. We reluctantly picked up our chairs and joined the multitudes of families fleeing what whas evolving into a block party rave.There was absolutely nothing "4th of July" about the whole thing. Very Disappointed.

Re: “Debriefer: June 29, 2016

Neither SB 1190 nor AB 2002 are necessary. Existing laws regarding ex parte communications with coastal commissioners requiring that treasures complete the form with detailed information. If the commission wants to increased transparency, they could post the forms online prior to a hearing. Oral reports about X partake medications could be followed – up by a written form that is posted online.

Re: “Feminist Fatale

Hillary is certainly the equal of many men that have been president---such a Tricky Dick Nixon. Hillary's lack of fitness for the presidency comes of the fact that she is not the equal of any of the good women who would have well served in the highest office in the land or any other position of trust and responsibility to other members of a community that woman have long served in a capacity far better than have far too long been reserved for occupancy by a male. And let us be fair minded in recognizing that Hillary is as equally unfit as men all too often have been in any position.

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: “Feminist Fatale

If Sanders says he's voting for Clinton I would think that it would be an acceptable, and his recommended, path for his followers.
