It's a Done Deal
From: MikeH      Posted: December 9, 2018, 10:15 am
Bike Trails are now going to be "parks" as of Dec 11th; I know this because it is on the "Consent Calendar" meaning it is understood to have no opposition. I had expected this item to be on the Regular Calendar and be debated at least, so I am disappointed. Here is the agenda item -

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.

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.

...I read the comments on the Gogola article and I was impressed by the arrogance of the new Graton NIMBY group. It is the same hype and posturing as the other NIMBY groups that have been a plague to us.

In a FOG they are!

Want to share a great find!
Donna cleaned my home and want to share with others.
Was very happy with the results after she was finished.
Have never seen such beautiful looking wood floors as I did after her cleaning.
Was very happy with all she did.
Very much enjoyed her and hope you'll give her a call! gailjane

Re: Anyone Been to Uruguay -Advice or Place to Stay?
From: Goldilocks     
Posted: December 9, 2018, 7:37 pm I have lived in Uruguay for six years. You are visiting at peak season, you might check out for the least expensive accommodations. I live near Piriapolis, a beach town, created by an alchemist. I recommend taking the Mistico tour there. Email with specific questions, [email protected]

I am leaving for Uruguay just before New Year and for nearly three weeks. I am spontaneous that way but realize I don't just want to book hotels and wing it. Does anyone have the time an inclination to speak with me if you have been there or know of a good (not so expensive) place to stay? I am kind of going on a spiritual tour of sorts and have a break between my classes doing graduate work at Sonoma State. Thanks in advance!

Having committed myself to a third round of thirty (or so) that I'm thankful for (and therefore indulging in the giving of thanks [and of both giving and receiving music] and hope you are, too) I turn my thanks to Thanks, Music Makers, Part 3. Please forgive me for not adding Parts 4, 5, 6 and onward. There's nothing like choosing music to be thankful for, except thanking more of that music. Like, for instance....

a song by The Roches called Jesus Shaves that's actually about Jesus shaving. Did he really do that? Listen Song #2

a song that's also part of a tribute to Joni Mitchell by Ana Moura (a wonderful Brasilian songstress) of her (Joni's) songs, titled A Case of You, which is actually a better version of this song than Joni's own. Like, for example, Song#1

a song by Kieran Kane, Kevin Welch, with Fats Kaplin, a song that, when Kevin Welch played the Occidental Center for the Arts last year, I asked him to play, a song called A Prayer Like Any Other (for Nikke), for which he apologized for no longer being able to play as well as he once did. Like, for example, Song #4

a song by the Duke and the King from the album Nothing Gold Can Stay called Union Street, a street with the same name as a street in San Francisco called Union Street that I grew up overlooking. Like, for example, Song #5.

Please note...I singled out for special interest four of the first five songs on Thanks, Music Makers, Part 3, even though Song #3 is just as good as the other 4. Please note further...this is gonna be an extremely cool group of songs.

Hello! My sweet Tozi (Australian Shepherd) and I are looking for a place to rent. We would be great with a shared house, a studio unit, an RV or camper on land, or any other situation that might suit us. We are friendly, outgoing, fun, and happy. I have lots of gardening experience so if you are looking for extra hands, I can help! I work full-time and I am gone a lot. I love cooking and sharing meals, dance parties, yoga, hiking, and poorly strumming my guitar. If you have a place, are looking for a place and would be interested in being roommates, or have any leads, please let me know! Thank you very much!
The rental my son found for me has the dreaded black mold. I have to move ASAP. I need a private space, preferably separate with private bath, kitchen for basic, healthy meal prep, WiFi, and cable if possible. Can pay in advance. Excellent references. Financially secure with excellent credit score. Family in Sebastopol. I hope to find something until April 6. The fewer the stairs the better. Call or text 208-720-6880 or e-mail [email protected].

Wall Street's corruption runs deeper than you can fathom
From: Karl Frederick  Supporting member  
Posted: December 9, 2018, 8:16 pm
Have you ever wondered about the Great Recession of 2008 and why you've heard so little about what happened to the people who presided over the calamity that devastated so many Americans? Robert Scheer interviews Carmen Segarra, who was an attorney working for the Federal Reserve, overseeing Goldman Sachs.

Here, Scheer introduces the subject and Carmen Segarra. Read it in the light of what you think you know about who is operating the levers of government:
"Of the myriad policy decisions that have brought us to our current precipice, from the signing of the North Atlantic Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) to the invasion of Iraq and the gerrymandering of House districts across the country, few have proven as consequential as the demise of Glass-Steagall. Signed into law as the U.S.A. Banking Act of 1933, the legislation had been crucial to safeguarding the financial industry in the wake of the Great Depression. But with its repeal in 1999, the barriers separating commercial and investment banking collapsed, creating the preconditions for an economic crisis from whose shadow we have yet to emerge.

Carmen Segarra might have predicted as much. As an employee at the Federal Reserve in 2011, three years after the dissolution of Lehman Brothers, she witnessed the results of this deregulation firsthand. In her new book, 'Noncompliant: A Lone Whistleblower Exposes the Giants of Wall Street,' she chronicles the recklessness of institutions like Goldman Sachs and the stunning lengths the United States government went to to accommodate them, even as they authored one of the worst crashes in our nation’s history.

'They didn’t want to hear what I had to say,' she tells Robert Scheer in the latest installment of 'Scheer Intelligence.' 'And so I think what we have in terms of this story is really not just a failure of the banks and the regulators, but also a failure of our prosecutors. I mean, a lot of the statutes that could be used—criminal statutes, even, that could be used to hold these executives accountable are not being used, and they have not expired; we could have prosecutors holding these people accountable.'

Segarra also explains why she decided to blow the whistle on the Fed, and what she ultimately hopes to accomplish by telling her story. 'I don’t like to let the bad guys win,' she says. “I’d rather go down swinging."

language lesson for young angels

the wooden stone fiber box
in which they sleep
in which they dream
the box in which their possessions
keep them
the box is called a house
no house
with heart force they say home
ho om
the metal rubber vinyl fiber box
the box in which they roll over
the strips of tar that they lay down
burning smell machine cooking
the thick black goo
the metal box is called automobile
haut oh mo veal?
no aw toe mo beel
with heart force they say my car
mihigh karr
and we funnels of the everlasting godhead’s
we guardians of the young of all species
we warrior shield against wayward meteors
we vibration balancers of all tectonic plates
we singers of the constant Glory
we are called angels
han gelz?
no angels
