Re: “A Star is Born and El Pulpo be thy Name

In my desire to create a book that would reveal Burning Man rather than describe it, I have successfully published Playa Dust! In order to create this collection of experiential essays, I invested in the first few hundred runs because this creative journey has meant the world to me. Now that I can share it with you, please purchase your copy at: and peer into the revelry that is Burning Man!

Any cop who betrays his public trust should be summarily executed.

Re: “'Unfit for a Free Society'

hmmmm my heart is broken many ways feeling all sides and instead of punish punish throw him/her in prison for life, we should ask ouselves how did this happen? i too think when people use drugs especially not having spirit in right place not taught given love, well others can control manipulate take advantage of these situations. I help raise and grew up with over 200 foster children, my foster/adopted mother Vicki Brown took in many probation kids. most/ALL ran cause the life given to them was to "normal' they run or rather go back to juvinille hall cause thats all they knew, kinda like asking ourselves, "why does she go back to that guy who beats her?" I ran away with art music my dad gave me. Im not defending Bodhii just know he grew up in a tough world and in year of 1995 i know my sibilngs, every foster child, everyone in juvinille hall was put on ridilyn...i was secretly given paxil, colonapin its no wonder i went down dark roads due to present past system failing us, but as an individual i cross the bridge to brighter times to share my experience and truths, hoping for a brighter future maybe part of the blame is within the system of quickly treating with drugs cause its easier and cheaper, a bunch of guinni pigs. LOOK...85-95 and NOW foster care... i see so many times the children who were not adoptable out, i want to cry but true...went back home to non functionble parents, i cry, the ones like myself struggle to hold onto our children. a cruel judge mental world so quick to judge and not even think of all the dynamics. DRUGWAR is to blame we are all to blame. I love you DAD, Christina(wish i stayed blessed(mother of 2 boys 3&4..sometimes we stay cause such loving art collective, i looking for safe family, having my own apartment at time... i did not sleep there that night leaving a few hrs before scene...sometimes i wonder if i was target water being put in gas tank...parked there...i cry cause somewhere within theres ituitive truth but the system..I cry. Christina laying her head on my shoulder, fall asleep looking for security somewhere within (beautiful caring sweet girl). i remember just meeting sunshine few days before returning to heaven...we enjoyed watching Unico, discovering so much in common in such little time, so smiling. happy confident caring kid. i do not believe even Bodhi knows what happened none of us do untill we begin to peel the onion layers back and face the truths. Please everyone where more connected then we ever can imagine, help your brothers and sisters, really what would jesus do? See a strugelling parent, a distressed person, help them life just isnt about partying and working. I cry cause of ignorance so many quick to say hes black, it was a rape... IGNORANCE. Greed is the root of all evil, FEAR, control, JEALOUS HATERS cause insecurities, BULLIES, parent not there , families torn apart... IT TAKES A WHOLE VILLAGE TO RAISE A CHILD! START ACTING LIKE A COMMUNITY, a tribe its the first HOMEROOT CHAKRA at age 5 we identify ourself with a tribe, some dont have untill its too late. My heart goes out to all of Humboldt excpecially the children caught in the crossfire and the veterans..(foster children of the drug war since civil war the 80s and now! we can change.Lamplighter rainbow warrior. Legalize weed we might begin to heal, make revenue... STATE WELLNESS PROGRAM. They are advertising foster care on street corners of parks and at farmers market. Wake the fuck up! you all matter especially our children of the future. love peace UNITY harmony beauty vibrations creation... spirit of the people is more powerful than mans technology and when people recognize they're power, the power to CHANGE than ANYTHING is possible. I love you Christina and ALAN.

Re: “Former Sheriff's Sgt. Charged with On-Duty Rape

What happened to innocent until proven guilty?? The women have been in jail and made a deal to get out??....... took almost a year to file charges??..... Something is not right with this picture??? Their is more to the story, a lot more... I think it would be humane to wait for a guilty sentence before anyone is castrated or planted in the dirt... Due process people, everyone good or bad is entitled to it....

Re: “Police Promotions

Chief Mills can't stop doing things well! What a great hire he's been. Sounds like EPD has a great plan in place and is going to get a good captain. Kudos to Chief Mills.

Re: “Former Sheriff's Sgt. Charged with On-Duty Rape

I am surprised this shitbag is still alive. I would think that family members of the victims would have manned up to bury this POS.
If not them, then fellow Sheriffs should have manned up and planted his ass in the dirt, if for no other reason than it reflects on them negatively.

I for one would not only condone such actions, but would not hold such actions against them in a criminal court. It goes without saying I'd not allow his family or anyone else to sue in civil court.

If one of the victims was my family, there would be no criminal trial. Especially with close to a year to make arrangements.

Wait a minute. Sexually penetrating a woman with a foreign object against her will ... and sexually battering ANOTHER woman while unlawfully restraining her, while ON DUTY as a law officer, and the maximum penalty is 12 years?!

Re: “Korbel Mill For Sale

Enough people have realized that Thompson's Water Seal and redwood stain on second-growth sap-wood does not a Redwood deck make. They tried to convert cut-over redwood land to Doug fir but got forced to replant redwood starting back in the late seventies.Now they're logging those hybridized 'wonder trees' and finding out that you can put any spin you want on it but second-growth redwood is shit wood, barely fit for utility fencing.

His comments on Doug fir confuse me. First he says that he believes the mill would be better run by a company with "deep knowledge of Douglas- fir manufacturing and marketing for the California market," then he says they will continue to focus on their core business, "growing and harvesting high quality... Douglas-fir timber."

Oh. I get it. They want to grow it here, clear cut it then ship the logs somewhere else to be 'manufactured and marketed'. Way to rape the county and out-source the jobs, boys. Does anybody here know how to say fucked?

Re: “Korbel Mill For Sale

once again, the self justified actions of the few, have affected the lives of the many… Sad to say, that seems to be the reason most businesses are failing, yet they seem to blame it on the economy, rather than a lack of understanding the economy

Re: “Korbel Mill For Sale

Well it states that it makes sense for a company that has knowledge in the California market to own the korbel facility. If this is the case then why is Simpson, it's former name, putting is mills in Washington, south Carolina and Georgia up for sale also? And green diamond just purchased 600 acres of timberland in southern Washington. Sounds like they just want out of the lumber business altogether to me. But I'm just speculating. That same guy said in a different interview about 2 years ago that they, crc, had no intention of selling or closing that operation when crc sent out a 60 day notice to its employees, i was one of those former employees, back on January 23 2013. That Rynearson guy is full of it.
