I've been there, I slept inside the building overnight...and it is in fact haunted.
The July 2nd show sounds rad! I'm glad LMC is helping bring back a decent music scene to Santa Rosa since there are already so many great bands, there just needs to be more great venues.
.....never heard of him. Must hang with the LB Crew
To respond to the above comment, the 650 number only includes workers directly employed by the casino, and only those casino worker's who are able to be in the union. This may not be 100% correct but I believe all management, admin positions, card dealers, security and others are excluded. A conservative estimate of this group is 350, it could be up to 600. There are also at least 200 if not 300 workers at the non-casino restaurants who are also not included. Conservatively that puts the total number of jobs at 1200. Additionally, there will be a hotel made in the future and those will be 200-300 jobs easily. So while 1500 jobs is perhaps a better estimate than 2000, it is NOT 650. You need to stop spreading biased information to promote your cause. Also you need to blame the evil company Stations because they laid off HUNDREDS of workers in December. Had they not done that, the 2000 figure may still be accurate. Please do some unbiased research, your activism (which I support) will be more powerful with accurate data.
ONLY 650 GRATON CASINO WORKERS (WAITERS, JANITORS, HOSPITALITY WORKERS AND COOKS) ELIGIBLE FOR UNION MEMBERSHIP? We thought they created "2,000" jobs. Waiters, janitors, hospitality workers and cooks (but the restaurants are all privately owned!) are the bulk of the available jobs there. So where's the other 1,350 jobs? Here's the truth: The 2,000 jobs figure would have only happened if the large hotel planned for the casino had opened. That was where the "2,000 jobs" figure came from, but the hotel was not built, and Graton casino never corrected the figure. Check the original stories and documents going back to 2003. You'll see we're right. Visit us on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/pages/Stop-Graton…
Amigo Orr - thanks for the headsup, we've fixed that typo!

Jamie made me a lovely 8'0 a few years back, after my son (a student of his) and I had surfed a number of times with Jamie and another Sonoma Academy teacher, Michael Peller, in Baja on a school break, and along the Sonoma Coast at various breaks after school some days. I had surfed as a younger man but it had been many years and I was, in effect, re-learning how to manage it. He apparently read my skill level fairly well, and I must thank him for the faith he put in my ability to progress from where I was at the time to a higher level. The first good wave I caught with that board was like a guy who had been driving an old Buick being given the keys to a Porsche....that 8'0 is still the family favorite...."Dad, do you mind if I take the 8'0 today...?"
If my wife had not been home that night I would have put that board in bed with me to keep it warm...
Thompson.BLM.DOI.Dillon.Kunze.Tuleyome.Boxer.Feinstein. are the pack which contributed to/directed the destruction of Lake Berryessa. Their goal has been to eliminate family recreation and motorized boating. The FEIS/Financial Plan stated that Plan B was not financially feasible – yet Thompson/Dillon pushed for it. Then Stimulus Funds were used to destroy infrastructures, marinas and all facilities.
Thompson/Boxer Bills to create Berryessa Snow Mountain NCA/Monument is incongruous with the Thompson/Dillon pretense that they want recreation at the Lake. This has been/ continues to be a Land/Water/ Resource [Billions$$] Grab. BLM has become an agency of Land Control. BOR is the agency which needs to solve the problem in obligation to the guiding document [Public Use Plan- 2006 VSP].
Thompson/Dillon Orwellian Speak is rhetoric of distraction and distortion. Neither have good intentions for the Lake Berryessa Community and the Lake which is a Regional Asset / Boater Destination.
FYI - The word "management" is spelled wrong in the title.
(Will proposed federal managment save Lake Berryessa?)
Well to be fair (HA!), Jesse Shantor and Adam Lessnau were the original creators of the name (or maybe there was someone before as well). Just another mystery about Santa Rosa's oldest tradition, as this is the 103rd Annual Hooligan Street Faire.
Read the IPCC reports. Third World homefires are the biggest source of anthropogenic CO2. Chinese mine fires reportedly put out more CO2 than all US vehicles. Until we get China, India, etc. on board, CO2 reduction efforts will have little effect. On the other hand, we can make more impact with efforts to increase the Earth's CO2 carrying capacity, such as planting more trees, decreasing clearcutting.
Where can we write-in ballot?
Thanks so much for the great article! Charlie, you are doing some amazing things for the community through your writing. I am really into your writing style as well - much thanks.
I just want to give credit to Kalei Yamanoha, a dear friend of mine who coined the term "Hooligan St. Faire."
See you all this weekend!

Well Tom ...Norman Solomon is not exactly the best judge of any Democrat. He does not know the Party or it's Leadership. He spent his life as a self appointed critic of Dems. He has only been a registered Dem since 2007. Before that he was was active in in the Green PArty and helped Ralph Nader challenge Gore in 2000 (and electing Bush in the process). He did attempt to capitalize on his minor celebrity among the left by running for office once in his life but he was beaten by someone he labeled a corporate dem (Jared Huffman) and a Republican. Solomon,if you've read his extremely unpopular columns over the years, has called nearly every Democrat at the national level be they holding office as President, Vice President, Senator, Congressional member, or just a candidate for president ...a "corporate democrat". So now Levine is labeled the same way Solomon has labeled Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, Al Gore, Barack Obama ,Jerry Brown, Gavin Newsome, both of our state senators, Jared Huffman and 100 other prominent and historical leaders of the Democratic Party. He published an entire book in the 90's that was a hateful screed against the Clinton's. Solomon left the Green Party because it's leaders would not agree to his dictates and their candidates had no hope of ever winning an election other than a local one. After abandoning the Greens, he joins the Dems and starts "judging" it's leaders using an agenda that appears to be more appropriate for one of the other parties that does not welcome business, care about jobs, or understand our economy. The chairs of the local Central Committee's for both Marin and Sonoma County authored a Close to Home column criticizing him two years ago when he misrepresented Rep. Huffman's record for political gain. But ultimately, The Dems win here and throughout California because by being a big tent Party and not as narrow minded as some of its newer members like Mr. Solomon.
Sonoma County Court. you can read the documents they are all there.
what court were the charges filed in?
Might The Bohemian explain the nature of Doolan's charges (what happened) or a reference to it?
Fantastic! I love the Bohemian and it's mission. Thanks for carrying on the torch, in fearless and fun-loving fashion. And just between us, I'm looking forward to one day seeing my band Team Venus featured in the music section. Certainly that was NOT a plug, just a casual aside... ;-)

When is the all-local fashion event at the Sonoma County Museum?
