Re: “Pipe Down

The state muffler law is not hard to enforce at all. It's not that the police have to ticket every single excessively loud motorcycle that roars through their jurisdiction.

Like Alex said, simply ticketing a few of them on a regular basis will get the message out that riding illegally modified loud motorcycles through town has consequences that the bikers would probably want to avoid. And that would educate them that the best way to avoid those consequences is to comply with the state muffler law.

But simply ignoring the problem and not enforcing the law at all sends the message that there will be no consequences for violating the state muffler law, riding loud and disturbing the peace.

The town's officials should stop making excuses and stop blowing off those who complian about unlawfully loud motorcycles. They should enforce the law and send the right message to the loud riding motorcycle noise scofflaws.

Re: “Down to the Wire

Where has Hopkins officially endorsed a ban on GMOs since becoming a candidate?

This is what a March 16, 2016 Press Democrat article said- "Lynda Hopkins, an organic farmer, on Wednesday expressed opposition to GMO crops and support for labeling of products that contain the altered organisms. She said she also signed the petition seeking to put the proposed county ban before voters.

But she stopped short of endorsing a ban, saying she wanted to read through “every single line” of the proposed ordinance before stating her position on it. Supporting the ban would likely put Hopkins at odds with many of her own supporters, including influential and deep-pocketed farming interests. Hopkins did not express concerns about that potential conflict, saying county politics are not “black and white.”

Re: “Pipe Down

Well said, Don Scott! Another aspect is greatly increased air pollution when scofflaw bikers remove exhaust systems with catalytic converters. Have those city council members and mayors who covet biker dollars considered the dollars they lose from tourists who stay away to avoid the abusive noise?

Re: “Down to the Wire

Lynda Hopkins is indeed smart and she genuinely seeks out the opinions of Sonoma County residents. She is an organic farmer who believes in urban growth boundaries. She supports the initiative to ban GMO's in Sonoma County. As a long time resident and voter, she has my vote for Supervisor!

Re: “Pipe Down

Mr. Scott is right on target regarding the absurdity and insolence of the Loud Biker Cult[ure]. In 1981, with the de-funding of the Office of Noise Abatement and Control (ONAC), the responsibility for control/enforcement of environmental NOISE issues and enforcement relevant to "vehicular NOISE" was delegated to the States and Local Governments - THEY HAVE FAILED US MISERABLY - ALL ACROSS THE UNITED STATES!

The US EPA, via the Code of Federal Regulations, restricts "total" street motorcycle noise emissions to 80 dB(A) for the 1986 production year forward - why? Because 80 dB(A) has been stipulated as the "minimum" safe level of protection for the general public. The EPA even went further - they require every production motorcycle muffler for street use to be permanently embossed with an EPA label showing that said muffler is compliant with EPA mandates. Then the EPA enacted "tampering" restrictions that forbid the alteration, modification, removal of that factory-installed muffler except for repair, maintenance or replacement - but - the replacement muffler must not contribute to "total" motorcycle noise emissions over 80 dB(A). So, what's the problem?

We, the American people, have, for the previous five stinking decades, been audibly assaulted by hedonistic mongrel-bullies who have, with an attitude of "entitlement," opted to remove their legal factory quiet motorcycle muffler and replace same with any number of illegal, NOT FOR ROAD USE, aftermarket egregiously LOUD exhaust that, via their unlawful NOISE, intrude into our homes, our places of worship, our schools, our work environment, our daycare facilities, our retirement homes - destroy our quality of life and audibly assault or most innocent and defenseless while the Loud Biker Cult[ure] does so with impunity and void any semblance of conscience. ENOUGH WITH THE ILLEGAL NOISE!

Law enforcement, get out of Starbucks, put the hamburger down and do your job - stop the bully behavior of the Loud Motorcycle Cult[ure]! We the citizens have had enough of the LOUD biker-bully-behavior!

Re: “Pipe Down

Police are only being asked to enforce the law. Ticketing one in one hundred violators would be enough to make bikers consider their behavior while driving through town. It's hard to not feel like law enforcement is turning a blind eye for personal reasons.

Re: “Pipe Down

Don is absolutely correct about police officers routinely ignoring the illegal loud bikes. In fact, it's abusive behavior to ride loud and that fact alone should prompt the police to address this abuse.

Re: “Letters to the Editor: April 27, 2016

Well, we do a little better with the actual nomination in November. It's still by winning the most electorates of a state, but if the state gets the electoral vote. Like IL has I believe 20 members of the Electoral College, so if Hillary wins IL by just one vote she'll win all 20 electorates and once you've reached or surpassed 270, Hillary is then the next president. And that's the closest we get to our vote really counting. At the same time, it shows how important it is to vote in the primaries and the off year non presidential elections unless you don't give a damn who you congressman is, the one that controls the purse strings. Same for you Senator. It takes two houses to pass that bill.

And people who don't vote, and there are a lot, just need to shut-up if they have a complaint. A lot of people are elected by your direct vote.

Re: “Civic Malfeasance?

My gripe is not with Courthouse Square, although I would not vote for it personally. My frustration is over the lack of due process in allowing this project to pass the correct milestones in relation to timing of community input for design review, as well as for community input over finance and funding mechanism for this project. The budget is for $10 million, which will likely cost much more than that, or about 20 million over 30 years due to the fact that counsel motioned for a funding mechanism called certificates of participation, which is a form of finance that will cost much more in interest payments, risk, and administrative costs. Whereas if counciil chose traditional funding or if they put the cost of the project to a vote for a bond, then the project costs would be much lower. As it is, the community advisory board officiated by counsel did not give the courthouse Square (finance review) the required four community meetings to review the funding mechanism. This is a violation of the city charter. Are you out raged yet? If this project is such a great idea then what is the fear Council has in putting it to a public vote? Answer; because they know it will not pass two thirds majority vote. This project has been opposed for more than three decades, which tells us that the public does not want it. Yet counsel insists on pushing it down the gullet of the taxpayer. Our group has worked tirelessly to attempt to get answers out of council members, city attorney, the city manager, the CFO; of whom obfuscate the details. It is like trying to nail Jell-O to a tree getting a clear answer out of them, akin to a shell game. One extreme measure to take would be to repeal the city charter so that Council will stop violating city charter governing laws put into place by the voters. We could replace it with state general law, which is much more restrictive of local government, but that has its drawbacks to. Frustratingly, it would be a pleasure to take the sandbox and toys away from counsel for a while and replace it with stringent general state law until they know how to play by the rules for the people by the people.
