Re: “Best of 2013!

The votes are bogus...I personally know businesses who ask their friends and customers to vote for them. It's not "democratic" at all! It's all people who know people and cast votes just because a business asks them to vote for them.

Re: “Bottlerock It, Man

They aren't trying to be versitile, they are desperate to keep their word that they can do this and these are the only bands that would agree to do it. Poor planning. Poor execution. Damaged brand. No surprise here. I would not be surprised if this is a worse bloodbath than last year. I hope they pay the bills.

Re: “Petaluma or Bust

As a life long Petaluman of 46 years, the only thing I have to say to all of you is please stay away. I'm not saying go F yourself, just go away to somewhere else and live happy lives and leave our fair city completely out of your plans. Damn vallejeoites, rohnert parkites, and marinites have been trying to make this nice old farm town into their chitholes. We don't want your low income housing, or your f'n mc mansions, we just want out victorians and nice new moderate homes and good working people, and you guys can keep whatever you got going on.

Re: “Cycle For Sight Rotary Ride for Veterans

Even if you don't chose to ride one of the three rides - 15, 25, or 50 miles, the post ride wine festival is a blast - many wineries participating, food booths, silent auction and music to dance to should it so move you - a great afternoon in the wine country - Topped by the cause it was created to support - The Pathway Home program literally saves the lives of the Veterans - there is not another program out there - yet - like it, and it involves the families of the Veterans and seemingly the entire Napa Valley community. The Napa Rotarians put on a great event -

Re: “Spleef of Police

This bill would also require medical cannabis patients to first acquire approval from a physician AND a surgeon in order to access cannabis medicines at a dispensary, but hopefully they will realize how unrealistically prohibitive clauses such as this are before passing it through...

Re: “Spleef of Police

When a loved one is in pain, wasting away unable to eat, and needs this marvelous herb in order to increase their appetite, reduce the overwhelming pain, and live as as healthy and happily as they can with the time they have left, let's have the compassion to allow them to have it.

Stop treating Medical Marijuana Patients like second rate citizens and common criminals by forcing them to the dangerous black market for their medicine.

Risking incarceration to obtain the medicine you need is no way to be forced to live.

Support Medical Marijuana Now!

"[A] federal policy that prohibits physicians from alleviating suffering by prescribing marijuana for seriously ill patients is misguided, heavy-handed, and inhumane." — Dr. Jerome Kassirer, "Federal Foolishness and Marijuana," editorial, New England Journal of Medicine, January 30, 1997

"[The AAFP accepts the use of medical marijuana] under medical supervision and control for specific medical indications." — American Academy of Family Physicians, 1989, reaffirmed in 2001

"[We] recommend … allow[ing] [marijuana] prescription where medically appropriate." — National Association for Public Health Policy, November 15, 1998

"Therefore be it resolved that the American Nurses Association will: — Support the right of patients to have safe access to therapeutic marijuana/cannabis under appropriate prescriber supervision." — American Nurses Association, resolution, 2003

"The National Nurses Society on Addictions urges the federal government to remove marijuana from the Schedule I category immediately, and make it available for physicians to prescribe. NNSA urges the American Nurses' Association and other health care professional organizations to support patient access to this medicine." — National Nurses Society on Addictions, May 1, 1995

"[M]arijuana has an extremely wide acute margin of safety for use under medical supervision and cannot cause lethal reactions … [G]reater harm is caused by the legal consequences of its prohibition than possible risks of medicinal use." — American Public Health Association, Resolution #9513, "Access to Therapeutic Marijuana/Cannabis," 1995

"When appropriately prescribed and monitored, marijuana/cannabis can provide immeasurable benefits for the health and well-being of our patients … We support state and federal legislation not only to remove criminal penalties associated with medical marijuana, but further to exclude marijuana/cannabis from classification as a Schedule I drug." — American Academy of HIV Medicine, letter to New York Assemblyman Richard Gottfried, November 11, 2003

Re: “Bottlerock It, Man

Hey Nicolas :-)
If I had to guess, I'd say they're trying to be versatile for the sake of getting a whole
big range of generations. A little something for everyone...know what I mean?
Have you ever seen us play? It's a fun show and we have fun with the crowd...well these days anyway.

Keep it real.

Re: “Petaluma or Bust

"Poor" folks being pushed out by the money form the East Bay & SF?

Keep in mind, these new transplants are being priced out of the East Bay & SF because they are "poor" in those cities and can't keep up with increasing prices.

So a "poor" San Franciscan becomes a "wealthy" Petaluman, while the "poor" Petaluman moves away and becomes a "wealthy" resident somewhere else thus pushing the "poor" resident of somewhere else out.

It's an endless cycle.

Re: “On Target

It's notable that any Press Democrat story about the Lopez killing draws hundreds of comments -- many, if not most, racist and hateful.

Re: “Petaluma or Bust

Petaluma has its own suburbs: everything east of the freeway. And yes, the West Side (ie, Petaluma) has been (not "is being") settled by "creative professionals" since the mid-90s that are self-employed entrepreneurs who had been priced out of the Bay Area. This is good for Petaluma and Sonoma County - homogenous suburban sprawl is not.

Re: “Petaluma or Bust

Petaluma is only just becoming a suburb. Petaluma had suburbs, now a bunch of people are moving from the big city looking at what has always been an awesome little town and see it as simply a suburb of their big city (like the guy who wrote this article).

And seriously, not gentrifying? As people flee the high prices of SF and Marin, they drive up rents here. Petalumans are moving to Santa Rosa because they are being priced out. In the three years ive been in my current place the duplexes on my street have gone from $1100 and $1200 a month to $1400 and $1450. I rented a 2 bedroom victorian in "the letter street neighborhood" for $1350 7 years ago. Now you are looking at $1800-$2000 for the same. Money from Marin and SF has been buying up real estate for profit. Petaluma Hotel, where all the poor people lived, has been gentrified. What I hear from the people I know...? Many think they will be having to move on. I mean seriously with all these new people, and the slow construction of new homes (population isn't exactly exploding), can this guy really believe that the poorer folks aren't being pushed out? I came to a sweet affordable town a decade ago, hoping someday to be able to buy a sweet home and live my life here, now what I see is gentrification and strip malls popping up everywhere. And as a single parent, I have watched my dream of being able to afford my own home here fly out the window.

Re: “Petaluma or Bust

@TC is threatened by the plurality of people coming to their white-ass neighborhoods who have diverse ethnic, social and economic backgrounds. Also, like some of these people are just coming home anyway. You saying that someone can't come home to raise their kids where they themselves grew up? Creep.

Re: “Petaluma or Bust

This article was geared toward people with money like our friend from Sausalito, who cant afford to live in Marin or SF. The target audience is people with money. "Come to Petaluma, you can buy our houses!" Sounds more Capitalist than its liberal fish wrap!
