PLAGIARISM hits the Mad River Union- Check out their latest issue. They had to fire their sports editor and what a blow to a small community paper. Jack and Kevin put out a great paper. What a shame!
According to the Biz News papers, Santa Rosa lost fully 5% of their housing stock in the fire. Will folks be moving up here as a result? I was pleased to find out that the Sandman, the handiest, most affordable motel in SR, made it through the fire. I must have stayed there a dozen times when I worked for the State. Glad they made it through.
Last week’s New Yorker had a piece about Mike Pence that was a lot more interesting than it had any right to be. Did you know that he served 12 years in Congress without having a single bill passed? Talk about useless! Javanka apparently pushed him for Veep. I’ve claimed since our trip last year that Indiana is the weirdest State.
LIU’S -is not dead, they’re only sleeping or on vacation. We pulled into their parking lot Friday to find they’d posted a sign saying they would be closed until November15th. Hope they’re having a good time! Liu’s is a good dependable restaurant. I like their broccoli beef and the hot and sour soup.
MORE BAD NEWS- the Benbow construction project, which was supposed to be competed about now, is not. They’re talking December but that’s just gossip. I hope they’ll be able to recover from the loss of revenue. People are still staying there, but I’m sure they’ve had lots of cancellations. We cancelled my birthday party there because of the construction. Hurry back, Benbow! We need you. There was no finer place to have a drink and some lunch than the old bar and I’m sure the replacement will be equally wonderful. Especially on a winter day.
Didja notice that Trump gave himself a “10” for his handling of the Puerto Rico crisis? With 80% of the power still out? He must grade on a curve.
Does anyone watch the North Coast News on Ch 7? Have you noticed any rightwing propaganda yet? Please let me know if you do. That was supposed to be the result of the recent sale to Sinclair. If you see clips with Sebastian Gorka commentaries, that’s a tell.
HSU FOOTBALL- I went to my first HSU football game when I was 17. It was also my last, but I do hope they’ll be able to salvage the program. At this point, it seems the community wants it more than the school does. There IS something beautiful about a football game on a Fall day except that the players break their necks. Would anyone show up for flag football? Why not?
EUREKA is going all-out for Hallowe’en this year. I’ve never seen so many displays. Will we see a lot of Trump masks? Would go well with a Dracula costume. You’re welcome.
Good to know about the Sandman, but I tend to frequent Hotel La Rose where one can get a room overlooking Railroad Square and watch the SMART trains arrive at the station.
I’ve eaten at the restaurant there but never stayed there. How’s the parking??
Parking is free, but in a lot across and down the street behind the Coffee House. Unfortunately, the restaurant has closed because the owner retired and no replacement has been found.
Oh no! That was a good place, I think it was called Michele’s? So they meet the same fate as our Roy’s Club.
No. It was called Joseph’s. He also prepared the continental breakfast for hotel guests, and it was incredible. Not your standard hotel fare.
