Greg Sarris claim to Indian identity has been declared false by the very family through which he claims Indian ancestry. That's right. His own family outed him. His third cousin, to be exact. Her name is Velia Navarro, she lives in the Los Angeles area, and she has provided a Sworn declaration that her family has NO Indian blood. Her oral history of her family and the vital records she has in her possession confirm the research done in 2010, which was extensive. You can hear Velia's own words at http://www.stopthecasino101.com/id147.html and see actual historical documents that prove it.
None of the 254 acres currently held by the federal government is "sovereign" tribal land. It is state land, and subject state law - that's according to settled case law in California. There will be a trial on this matter on August 2, 2013. If the court agrees that the casino site is state land, the casino will not be allowed to open. You can find more at www.stopthecasino101.com
And why is there no mention of the fact that this entire area is critical habitat for the highly endangered tiger salamander? Anyone wishing to build anything will have to do a 2 year CEQA study.
Loves how pieces of cloth that have pictures of dead presidents, gets everyone excited for the worse of all.
If the police would stop militarizing and end the Drug War I'd bet there would be much better relations with the public. The shame of this is that I was raised at a place in time where we all knew the local cop and he was regarded as a friend and we were glad to see him, even the one who came to "arrest" my grandfather for biting some guy's ear off in a barroom brawl. Actually he picked a time to show up when he knew Merle wouldn't be there so he could just sort of warn him to clear out of the county for a spell. Alcohol and violence, same as it ever was. If we just had common sense drug education for ALL drugs and proper treatment with a number of psychoactive drugs that are now illegal we would see plummeting rates of addiction to all drugs including alcohol. And cops would once again be your buddy Steve instead of Robocop.
Has anyone asked members of the tribe what benefits they get, after all the millions in "payoffs" to management, city, county, state, federal governments. What will the average tribal member get. I only see 8 million in health care benefits mentioned and if that is like other "government indian healthcare/VAcare" it makes one wonder.
How is this area a "food desert"? Lola's, Costco and Trader Joe's are all found along this stretch.
This is one uuuuugggggglllllyyyyyy dog
Looks like a great event. We'll be there!
Wish Criminal opened earlier one-two days a week...but this news is great!!!
Bookstores are more than books. They are places for people to gather in community. Mackenzie Bezos played a role in taking away a safe place for women to gather perhaps by her silent complicity during the lawsuit. Today the ethical thing for the Bezos to do is to give back the Amazon name to the Minneapolis women’s bookstore along with financial restitution. As we all know, the Amazon legacy is to stand up to bullies and fight for the underdogs.
The name Amazon was stolen from Amazon Bookstore a feminist bookstore founded in 1970 in Minneapolis, MN. In 1999 the Amazon Bookstore for-profit collective sued Jeff Bezos for trademark infringement, plus staff time and money lost due to customers and suppliers mistaking their store for the Web retailer.
When Jeff Bezos stole the Amazon name, he encouraged his lawyers to interrogate a store co-owner while she was under oath about her sexual orientation and that of her staff! This week Copperfield’s Book Club hosts Mackenzie Bezos who typed a trite book about four women. I want to know how she feels about the women whose lives and livelihood she helped trample. I also want to know how Paul Jaffe and Barney Brown would feel about a corporation selling books using Copperfields.com. I think these are important musings for small independent bookstore owners and their customers.
The fact that this story is posted and has both positive and negative comments shows Mr. Briano has had some measure of success. Theater will die if you don't get people talking about it and going out to see the productions. He seems to be leading when no one else wants to. Briano should be appreciated and helped. Perhaps a list of which companies opted out of consideration or which were included might help. It never helps to be mean. LGygax
This seems to be an error. Mill Valley Library says this event was a few weeks ago.
This event is past. There is no performance at the Mill Valley Library on Saturday March 16. Look out for future Sunday Specials and other events!
do you know how ai could get in touch wtih Kevin Robinson? by e-mail or cel ph (not via Sonoma Spring Brewing.
Sorry, E.P.A. abatement is forth coming...Things change and water quality by the Fed's upon the NorthWest Coastal Rivers and tributaries cannot be circumvented by emotions....The failure of Monte Rio residents and business to pump sewage is tantamount to crimes against the environment....All uphill into a non-existant sewer pipe and water treatment Center..The County refusal to provide permits or prior Red-tagged buildings and parcels, has demolished app. one-fourth of the former buildings...All were similar as low lying along the Federal Russian River, U.S. Army Corps Warm Springs Dam Hatchery, Mill Creek, Felta Creek, Green Valley Creek, Mark West Creek, and DutchBill Creek,,,App. nine billion dollars annual is spent now, from Santa Cruz to Canada for water quality. Further operation of the Rio Theater may subject the owners to criminal prosecution by more ground water pollution. And inadequate toilet pumping service for patrons...Watch your money.....
Erma and Daniel have created so many venues that have been taken from them by people with more money behind them. What pisses me off is that they have NEVER BEEN GIVEN CREDIT for ESTABLISHING these places as good venues for music. Erma and Daniel should be recognized as the people who saw the possibilities and made it happen in these places. No one could have been sure it would work at the Masonic, the Seafood Peddler or the Larkspur Cafe without their insight and hard work.
That said, Sweetwater is amazing, as is Terrapin and I am happy for their success. Could we have some appreciation that their success is because Erma and Daniel made them a viable venue in the first place?
Blueshift is great funky fun!
