Re: “My Land

Response to E. G.Singer

E.G., Thank you for showing your support for #DAPL, however, I feel you missed the point that this a victory for Tribal Sovereignty. The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, the Tribal council and Elders made this a reality. It was begun by Native youths but sovereignty is what leads. Neither individuals nor organizations are sovereigns. It is wonderful to see the support from around the world for this effort. Water is sacred, thank you for your thoughts.

With respect,

Peggy Berryhill,
Native Media Resource Center

Re: “Bad Move

I live in a rural residential area and I have seen a grower move in to a very close family neighborhood and construct an 8 foot fortress fence with a padlock solid 8 foot hight gate all around the little neighborhood lot and house they bought. Only thing missing is the armed guards.

This is not kid friendly or neighborly. Usually one guy lives on these properties as a guard or watchman. These are neighborhoods. We also don't want other big industries next door. We want neighborhoods where people live, have kids, know each other and are a community. Many of the grow sites destroy community. They are not usually families. Just a care taker watchman and a big keep out fence.

Re: “Dear Fellow Christians

There is no way you are christian dude. If you knew what the communists you would put in power would rewrite the bible if you were allowed to have one, then once the muslims kicked their ass, you would get a Qu'ran or a guillatine. Soft head. This is more typical crap that goes on in Stett Holbrooks sandbox.

$70 for a daypass? That's completely unreasonable.

Re: “Standing Tall

I am encouraged to see the Bohemian publish Sheperd's article about Standing Rock's efforts to stop the Dakota Access Pipeline. This issue is not getting enough coverage in the media and the honest coverage has mostly come from independent journalists so I appreciate seeing this in a local paper very much. I attended both actions in Santa Rosa on the 15th and know our community will continue coming together to support Standing Rock on the long road ahead. Please be sure all or your friends and family know about this and don't assume they have heard. These are reliable sites for donations, information about what is happening on the ground and actions nationwide :

Re: “Standing Tall

Thank you for Shepherd Bliss's article on Standing Rock. It is essential to have this kind of thorough coverage, as local, national and, already, international awareness grows.
Well done Bohemian!
And thank you Shepherd.

Re: “Standing Tall

Great to see this article by Shepherd on this very important ongoing effort by Water Protectors and allies. One correction is the cost of the pipeline is in billions not millions - 3.8 billion. Many from this area have traveled up and are helping in their way. Those of us behind have many ways to contribute as Shepherd points out.

Thanks Stett. We can certainly use a trustworthy press right now.

Re: “Letters to the Editor: November 2, 2016

The follow-the-money letter is hard to follow. The writer grumbles about receiving political mailers from lackeys/handlers of Lynda Hopkins. What he means is that he got some mail from an independent political committee that Hopkins has no control over; Noreen Evans has verified that reality in regard to independent groups supporting her.

However, the letter oddly refers to lackeys/handlers. A lackey is a manservant, houseboy, or a flunky; while a handler in this context would be a person who actually manages a political candidate. The metaphors are thus confusingly mixed.

The rest of the letter is short on substance but full of fallacy and incivility. Eric Koenigshofer, who supports Hopkins, is effectively labeled a pig, and Lynda Hopkins is called a toady. The first epithet is uncivil, and the second is sexist. Why does the writer feel the need to resort to the fallacies known as ad hominem attacks and guilt by association?

Lynda Hopkins is no toady. She is a strong woman who will serve the best interests of the entire Fifth District as our next supervisor.

Re: “Letters to the Editor: October 12, 2016

I'm Evans has no specifics. And the ones she has are illegal or not practical.

Re: “Letters to the Editor: October 19, 2016

Noreen's only argument is that she has been in government so many years. Where is real policy? Oh ya pot for potholes (she won't get that money) and use pension money to fund housing (oh ya that's illegal). Time for new ideas.

Re: “Letters to the Editor: October 12, 2016

a perfunctory perusal? done at perhaps at a precursory level?

Re: “Letters to the Editor: October 19, 2016

David Katz hits the nail on the head with respect to Erik K. It is sad that he brings so much money and misery into the local contest for the 5th District. His funding of the unsubstantiated allegations against Noreen Evans are a disgrace.

Re: “Create a Bee-Friendly Garden at Healdsburg's Shed

This is very educational content and written well for a change. It's nice to see that some people still understand how to write a quality post.

Re: “Letters to the Editor: September 27, 2016

In the terse, anti-Lynda Hopkins letter, the writer opined that she should not be running for county supervisor, because she is the mother of two young girls.

Does he mean that she should not work outside of her home? Would he say the exact same thing if it were her husband who was seeking this county job? Haven't we gotten beyond such antiquated thinking?

Simplistic either/or arguments are in vogue: the woman can apparently either choose to be a good mother or a good supervisor, but not both. To the contrary, Lynda Hopkins is an excellent mom, and she will--simultaneously--be an excellent supervisor.

Re: “Freedom of Expression

Too many of our police officers are acting from fear of, rather than from love of, their fellow human beings. We do not adequately educate or train them to fulfill the only oath they take which is to "serve, protect, and defend" the Constitutional Rights of All People, not just the ones who look, sound, and smell like the wealthy living on the right side of the tracks.
