I was hunched over in the road (in a bright coral hoodie) picking up a pound of nails and tacks thatRead More were dumped in the road when a neighbor in a white Pontiac SUV punched the gas and made an aggressive swerve past me. This was witnessed by my husband and three other neighbors (who were shocked at his stunt). The guy lives around the corner from us . . . what is he thinking?! I was picking up nails and roofing tacks, some #16's, so that drivers didn't puncture their tires! People need to slow down and take a breath. Our street is in a quiet neighborhood, on a hill, 25 mph, around the corner from Bodega Bay Elementary school. People (including parents taking their kids to school) drive like maniacs up the 3 block hill to what? Get home, get their kid to school? I've been slammed into by a car at 19 years-old (the woman was on prescription meds) and spent a month in the hospital and came out scarred with a leg 2" shorter from a compound fracture. Let me tell you first hand . . . it's not worth all the pain and suffering you may cause someone or yourself or your kids, SLOW DOWN . . . please . . .

"unspent .32 caliber bullet"?? The bullet is the part of a cartridge that goes down rangeRead More when fired. I suspect we are talking about an "unspent .32 caliber cartridge" or "unspent .32 caliber round of ammunition".

The victim was obviously killed with an unregistered hammer. If the weapon had been registered, theRead More crime never would have happened. California hasn't gone far enough. We need to register all hammers, baseball bats and rolled up newspapers.

Who were the johns? What was their market? Where did they advertise - I am curious to know so thatRead More I can recognise anything similar

Iris Dandi, I agree that any those who sought sexual services should be arrested and charged,too,butRead More I think law enforcement was focusing on arresting the pimps involved in human trafficking,which is a serious problem. These women were more than likely illegal immigrants from Central America. They need to be given the option of going into a safe house,where they can receive treatment,or being deported. The reason that law enforcement should do this is that they will more than likely be out on the street working for another pimp unless they are given sanctuary in a safe house. I live in Alta Heights and I'm pretty sure there is something of a similar nature going on in the apartments near where I live. Things have quieted down of late,however. I wonder if Napa Patch would find out the address of the brothel in Napa.

Money is the root of all evil, no? You'd think smart guys like lawyers and bankers would understandRead More that. Ahhhh... but power breeds power, and they're only human, right? No worries, liberal judges will help them rehabilitate back into society...
Dee Baucher April 11, 2014 at 01:41 pm
These people need to go to jail. Period.
Rock Fan April 16, 2014 at 01:49 am
Oh , I think they will go to jail , but it will be awhile .They all managed to post bail .But areRead More looking at a federal judge in less than two days .They will all plead not guilty and it may be 8 to 10 months before the trial runs it's coarse .I'm sure there is quite a paper trail .

Who says casinos are bad for your community, bringing in out of town crime? You think these thugsRead More would have visited Rohnert Park for their shady ops because of Scandia or Spreckles? Dream on folks, welcome to the new Sonoma County lifestyle. Casino Royale. Children first!

Good job police! Oh yeah, don't blame the casino!

"Wagstaffe said that this latest arrest prompted a thorough interview by a detective, who foundRead More no evidence of any mental illness." Well Hell, if the DETECTIVE, who is NOT a Psychologist OR Psychiatrist didn't see any sign of mental illness, there must not be any, right? Stevie Wonder could see this woman has a mental problem, and does NOT deserve to sit in jail or be charged with a crime. She needs and deserves help, from a DR, NOT a friggen Detective! So now we're going to start arresting the elderly for being confused, or having possible dementia?!?! It's all about the $ right? $25k bail, for WHAT? This is so wrong!

"She Believe She Can Fly"....................................... She used to think thatRead More She could not go on......... And life was nothing but an awful song...... But now She know the meaning of true love...... She leaning on the everlasting arms...... If She can see it, then She can do it....... If She just believe it, there's nothing to it....... [Chorus:] She believe She can fly...... She believe She can touch the sky...... She think about it every night and day....... Stowing away on a Plane and fly away..... She believe She can soar...... She see herself running through that open door...... She believe She can fly....... She believe She can fly..... She believe She can fly..... See She was on the verge of breaking down...... Sometimes silence can seem so loud.......... There are miracles in life She must achieve......... But first She know it starts inside of her, oh...... If She can see it, then She can be it......... If She just believe it, there's nothing to it [Chorus] She believe She can fly...... She believe She can touch the sky...... She think about it every night and day....... Spreading her wings and flying away..... She believe She can soar...... She see herself running through that open door...... She believe She can fly....... She believe She can fly..... She believe She can fly.....

The $950 raised should be more than enough to send her on a one way ticket to Hawaii. Then she canRead More be their problem.

What has this got to do with the Graton Casino? Not a damn thing. You sure bring it up though toRead More spread innuendo and make judgements. Please print the facts and keep your judgements out of the articles.

This crash was reported in at least three other news outlets and each chose to include anRead More explanation of who Cindy is, and on each site there was someone complaining about that. I think when someone famous is involved that gets reported because of the tendency towards sensationalism in the media. Patch in this case is sort of just re-reporting the news from other sites. But it could have been edited out as everyone in Napa knows who CP is (and if they don't they don't care). I would also like to hear about the child's family, and the circumstances leading up to the crash.

I am dismayed by the number of crashes recently that have involved "veering" orRead More "swerving" as if it was an impossible task for some people to keep their car in their own lane pointed in the right direction. At least when alcohol, sleep deprivation, or texting is involved we have an explanation. But when those factors are not involved it is really scary that we have here now a population of drivers who seemingly don't have the skills to operate their vehicles.

NVR is reporting that CP was a passenger in the RX450 Lexus and sustained "moderateRead More injuries".
