Re: “SSU Construction Management Certificate Info Meeting

UPDATED ROOM*** Salazar 2013 * (Venue subject to change)

Re: “The Rent Kept a-Rollin'

This innocuous and informational article was rolling around fine until about 3/4 of the way through, when the author felt it necessary to promote racism. Why is it ok to degenerate an entire class of people if they are "white". Racism is racism, and this is a clear case. Oh, do you want to say it's true so it's not....welll that is a very slippery slope indeed. Either stop classifying people by their race or let every racial slur stand. But, inserting it into an article, and propagating the disrespect of the Press Democrat is BS!

Re: “Square Dancing in Petaluma

Dan Lyke is a delightful caller and the location could not be better with lovely wood floors for dancing! Please come out and try square dancing. It is so much fun! You do not need a partner, and there is plenty of parking in the lot and near by on the street. So come out and join us for a lot of fun! Jim B.

Re: “Sausalito Healing Arts

Last month, it was my birthday, the anniversary of my late husbands death, and a time when I experienced another loss in my family. I was in total depression also because the gentleman I had been seeing for nearly a year decided to cut ties with me. All this happened at the same time, and my heart was broken. Then I found Dr Oniha s website, and all my luck turned around especially because the master did a wonderful spell of Love for me and my dearest companion, who decided he had made a terrible mistake by leaving me. We even took a much-needed vacation. It meant the world to me, and I have you to thank for it Dr Oniha. his email is ONIHASPELLTEMPLE@GMAIL.COM. You can can also call his mobile number +16692213962. Contact Dr Oniha for any kind of help you need. JUDITH.

Re: “ReFrame Gallery

The talent is top notch. I used to live in NYC and the quality of service is impressive and comparable to the trendy salons in Manhattan.

Re: “Grow-Site Pain

I was appalled at this ridiculously biased attack piece on supervisor Lynda Hopkins...then I realized, this isn't SUPPOSED to be "journalism" it was an advertisement!

Re: “Grow-Site Pain

Friends of Graton was not happy to be ignored for this article, but in Tom's defense he did offer us the OpenMic in the next issue of the Bohemian which comes out Wednesday, a day after the Supervisors hearing. Since we are not sure of the status of the project until we hear if there will possibly be a revision or a new project, we have decided to wait to make comment until that time. You are correct, Dian, that what you have described is the current proposed project.

Re: “Grow-Site Pain

At no point in this article did Goggola cite the main reasons for residents' opposition to the project:

"This mammoth project calls for 18 greenhouses, 30 parking spaces, 8' high perimeter fencing, 12 water tanks, 2 buildings (5050 sq. ft.), a security station, camera surveillance, outdoor grow, nighttime lighting - all accessed by narrow Railroad Street." (Joe Howard, Graton)

Very disappointed in this failure to observe high journalistic ethics, Tom. The attempt to frame the article as an impeachment of the neutrality of Hopkins' role indicates you understand the valid reasons for opposition and concern yet have paid them no attention, instead opting for an attack on the 5th district supervisor and thus supporting cries of NIMBYism when this is absolutely not true. That's the story - go follow it, please!

Re: “Grow-Site Pain

Joe, I'm not sure why you feel that way, but I think if you met Jack you wouldn't see any of the arrogance that you imply. Meet him, talk with him, take his measure. Then decide.

Re: “Grow-Site Pain

Well, it certainly was a terribly researched and intentionally divisive article, and despite your efforts at getting more reasonable as the comment string went on, Mr Buck, it feels to me that your approach is far from 'win-win,' but more like 'I always expect to win, you all just don't understand how right I am.'

Enough has been written about many negative and controversial aspects of this project, but the one thing I haven't seen that should be a deal-killer is the nature of Railroad Street. It's a one lane road. How in the world will it handle the traffic, and especially the truck traffic, that this project will require. This use is simply inappropriate for this location in every way.

Re: “Grow-Site Pain


Apologies if that sounded condescending, I didn't mean to come across that way, but curious as to why you think it should not be on the Consent Calendar?

Also, I do find it odd that you say "I do not subscribe...Press Democrat", but on 07/26/2018 you have a comment in the Bohemian that says "Good news..." and then you provide a link and quotes from an article in PD. You do read it, but I guess you don't subscribe.

Re: “Grow-Site Pain


That is very condescending the way you replied to me. No I did not see the ad you reference and I do not subscribe to that crap the press Democrat. And yes i am more than well aware of what the "Consent Calendar" is and its "purpose." Supervisor Gore allows a person only 2 minutes total to comment on any and all consent items, so if one wanted to comment on only 4 of these 52 items you could budget 30 seconds each for your comments. No I do not believe this belongs on the consent calendar as a routine business matter. And I question how the "ad-hoc" decided this belonged there, expecting it to pass as a routine matter.
Plenty of their activities raise Brown Act concerns.

Re: “Grow-Site Pain


I'm imagine you saw the ad in Press Democrat by Waybrook Associates (Cheryl Buck is Agent for Service of Process) talking about the consent calendar item. Consent Calendars are the way local governments work, there are not long lengthy discussions about every item. There are 52 consent items on Dec 11th agenda and they will be voted as a block. We elect them to represent us and it is up to us to read the minutes from previous meetings and upcoming agenda information packages, and contact the Board of Supervisors. A lot of people contact their elected officials to express their views. The BOS takes the input from the citizens to help inform their decision. But it is up to us to stay informed and contact our representatives. The government is not there to spoon feed us, we must actively participate.

Re: “Grow-Site Pain

It's on the consent calendar because the definition of trails as parks already exists per the Municipal Code and pre-dates the cannabis regulations. There shouldn't really be anything to debate/discuss as far as the supervisors and county counsel are concerned. That being said, it's a public hearing and anyone can make comments.

Re: “Grow-Site Pain

Bike Trails to be Parks is on the Consent Calendar, meaning it's expected to be approved without even debate. It is item #39. Why was this not even put on the Regular Calendar to invite public comment on the matter? Here's the specifics -

Recommended Actions:
Adopt a Resolution Interpreting Public Parks as referenced in the Cannabis Land Use Ordinance as all
existing Federal Recreation Areas, State Parks, Regional Parks, Community Parks, Neighborhood Parks,
and Class I Bikeways as designated in the Sonoma County 2020 General Plan.

39. Cannabis Ordinance Park Setback Interpretation, ORD18-0009: Adopt a Resolution Providing an Interpretation that Class I Bikeways are Public Parks as referenced in the Cannabis Land Use Ordinance.

Thanks, Lisa. But not helpful. Perhaps if you were there, you could have witnessed the vitriol for yourself.

Re: “Ism or Isn't She?

The perfect is the enemy of the good.

The left attacks the moderates, and the right wins. Now we are reaping the whirlwind: The irreparable damage to the environment and to communities from Trump. Does Solomon attack Trump, the greatest clear and present danger to American democracy in our lifetimes? Nope, its circular firing squad time. Let's tear apart the left-moderate coalition, that makes sense. Thanks, Solomon. Keep up the good work.

Re: “Grow-Site Pain

Dear Jack,

Now you're playing the victim? My family has lived in this town for many years and I've seen divisive issues from politics to development, but no one getting beat up over them. If you and your partners feel accosted from disagreement, then I suggest they toughen up and you grow a pair.

Re: “Grow-Site Pain

Hi Bonney. Thanks for your thoughtful contribution. It reminds me of the spirit of Woodstock, where Jack used to live. I'd like you to meet Jack and talk with him, get to know him. I think your three P's would resonate with him. You guys may be able to create something, at the risk of sounding too "woo-woo"... magical.
