Re: “Stop It Now

Excellent letter!
However, the author didn't mention that Deputy Gelhaus was not only returned to street patrol, in May 2016 he was promoted to Sergeant by Sheriff Steve Freitas. He is highly qualified and will represent the Sheriffs Office well, Freitas said. If I didnt believe that, he wouldnt be promoted. The promotion was kept secret until August 2016.
The community was stunned: The message was clear: you are faceless, nameless, voiceless, and we dont care about you, observed one Latina.
And now, the County Counsel and Board of Supervisors continue to spend millions of taxpayer dollars to keep Gelhaus - a known Nazi enthusiast - from going to trial.
For shame!
We demand justice for the Lopez family without any further delay!

Re: “Down at the Death Cafe

I've attended 3 of these. I went to the first one with a friend who was dying of cancer. I didn't know what to expect, but I'm open to many things, and found that it was wonderful to listen to and share thoughts and feelings about this mysterious event that we all face, or have faced.

When my friend of 25 years recently died, I knew that the Death Cafe would be the perfect place to express my grief, and to share one of the many letters he wrote to me over those years. Sometimes those closest to us are at a loss when we're grieving.

Death is usually seen as a negative thing, except for those of us who wish it would hurry up, especially if we're dealing with a loss of function and independence, which makes living a daily struggle. Who wouldn't welcome the Angel of Death to embrace us?

I'm so glad I took the risk of doing something "positively negative". My friends understand that it's just part of my weirdness. I just offer it, with no expectations, except that many will say "No, that's not for me!"

Not many will volunteer to discuss the topic of death, although it has proven to be very popular throughout the world. The interesting thing is that it's faciliated by volunteers, some of whom are Hospice workers, and there is no fee, exept by donation. This is one event that hasn't been monetized, which is refreshing in itself.

Check out the Death Cafe, and treasure life even more.

Re: “Down at the Death Cafe

Thank you Shepherd, for this inspiring and informative article. Im a grief counselor and have been wanting to attend a Death Cafe for years. This particular event feels very much to me like psychospiritual and emotional food for the soul. What a beautiful way to share our hearts grief, joy and all that arises when facing deaths final frontiers.

Re: “Slow Down

Napa County is even worse than Sonoma County regarding proliferation of vineyards and wineries. The county has granted amnesty for wineries that have exceeded production, visitor count or events allowed by their permits. When the wineries seek amnesty, not only are they forgiven, the county then grants them approval to expand beyond what they were doing illegally! Our water table declines every year, and our roads become more and more choked with traffic, but the officials seem oblivious to the quality of life for us who live here. Also, I read today that droughts may get worse in our state.…

Re: “Renters Rights


Glorious be unto Prophet Ayelala love spell the man who made me see reasons that there are still real and genuine spell casters like him. Since 3 weeks now i have witness what is called heart broken. My boyfriend that promised me marriage failed me, impregnated me and left, he dumped me, he stop calling" he stop picking my calls, and he no longer respond to me. I have been looking for solution, I fall into the hands of fake spell casters, they ripped me off and took my money without help. I have cried, I have weep"and tears runs out of eyes. the silentness in my heart brought me to the deepest path of failure that I lost my job. Crying all day because my life was lonely. Thanks to Prophet Ayelala who came into my life and brought me the greatest joy that was lost. I saw his Email: while browsing and I contacted him, told him what am passing through with no doubt because of what i saw in him, I was given words of solution on what to do and after casting the spell, 12hrs later, here comes my boyfriend with a rose flower on his hand on my way out, i saw him in front of my door and said he is dying i should forgive him and accept him back he was crying, i can't wait to let him finish I quickly crab him and kiss him, just then" he said he is restless without me, just as Prophet Ayelala said it would be, today makes it a month and we are living happily I don't know how to praise him enough, he has done a great thing i can never forget in my life. I want you all to help me praise him because if it wasn't for him my life would have been a living hell.. You are to contact this great Prophet Ayelala using the Email: or whats-app +2348069132476 and live the life you deserve. thanks Troy Angela

Re: “Emergency to Emergence

I am a fan of some of those building methods. How would rammed earth fare in a fire? What about a living roof? Of course, we live in earthquake country too and that has to be accommodated. The other aspect of this issue is, should we be living in the wildland/urban interface? That is why these fires are so catastrophic. Once people move into the woods, minor fires no longer occur, leaving the occasional huge fire to wipe everything away. Lets do some honest, creative thinking about these issues.

Re: “Up to Code

I'm seeing contradiction in your advice.
Concrete production is, as you have pointed out, a huge consumer of energy as is the quarrying of raw stone. I fully understand the engineering advantages to these materials as I was once a commercial stone mason and don't foresee the elimination of their use (foundations) soon.
Going LEED is great as a stop gap as long as rebuilt dwellings are just that and not palaces growing the economy exponentially, which as you have so deftly pointed to as the root cause.
Keep the faith.
Passing the word and striving to live it.
John B. Wiseman

Please clarify.

Re: “Shut It Down

Thank you for posting this. It's been an open secret for many years that people have been growing pot here in Sonoma County. We have a pre-existing culture already in place that supports this underground business. Now, with the legalization of cannabis, it is has never been more important to move towards county policies of accountability on everyone's part - and that includes growers, lawmakers, code enforcement, clearly articulated zoning laws and neighbors not looking the other way, but instead holding their neighbors accountable.

I voted yes to legalize the growing of cannabis. I did not vote yes to support blackmarket businesses that suck the life out of our communities. We need everyone on board to stop the rogue growers now.

Re: “Let the Investigation Begin

"Steve Hogle lives in Healdsburg, where he manages a family estate and ranch. " This makes me wonder if he is a typical pimp benefiting from the cheap labor of illegals. Most open-border pro-illegal immigration types are interested in having the cheap labor available for exploitation.
