Re: “Charity Case

Jim Sweeney, editorial director for the Press Democrat, says he hasn't read this. He's heard about it but not bothered to actually read it. HaHa. I brought this up to him during my "interview."

Re: “A Little Town Called Eldridge

"The Sonoma County Airport plans to add 16 more commercial flights in the Spring of 2020. Meanwhile they are installing solar at the airport. What hypocrites! ...
Few take global warming serious"

I was wondering the same. Lynda Hopkins tells us we need to sign up for the Sonoma Green Power Ultra Green Program and pay extra, so that when we flip the switch our electrons come from the Geysers Geothermal plants instead of some other source connected to the common grid. And Sebastopol has their battery powered bus. Yet we cheer the expansion of the airport which is the most carbon per passenger mile form of transportation.

Re: “Trashed

Whales are dying by ingesting plastic floating at sea, which they think is food. Two stories -…

A pregnant sperm whale washed up, dead, on a sandy beach outside Porto Cervo, a resort town on Italys island of Sardinia last week. When scientists and veterinarians cut open her womb and stomach, they found a horrifying sight: A dead baby whale, and nearly 50 pounds of plastic waste jammed into her belly.…

Darrell Blatchley received a call from the Philippines' Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources early Friday morning reporting that it had a young Cuvier's beaked whale that was weak and vomiting blood.

Within a few hours it was dead.

Blatchley, a marine biologist and environmentalist based in the Philippine city of Davao, gathered his team to drive two hours to where the whale had washed up.

When the necropsy was performed, Blatchley told NPR, he was not prepared for the amount of plastic they found in the whale's stomach.

"It was full of plastic nothing but nonstop plastic," he said. "It was compact to the point that its stomach was literally as hard as a baseball."

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

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.
