I can't believe they're trying to cut down the bushes by the front door. This is clearly an abuseRead Moreof power from somebody who must be jealous despite owning more property. Those bushes are beautiful, and they really set our home apart. The HOA should encourage adding bushes to other properties if anything. Stay strong! Love you Mom!

I agree with Julian. Stay strong! I know what it's like to be a victim of "board"Read Moredictac tors. You have to fight the good fight in this case. There's not much I can do to help, but suggest you join Nextdoor.com as a way of connecting with neighbors who empathize with you, and may provide some support. We don't have enough members of Nextdoor.com and it's an important network to know about "all things Rohnert Park/Cotati", and could get bigger and better than Patch. It depends on us joining in standing proud for our own communities.

That is a beautiful entrance. I don't know what is wrong with some people. I guess they like toRead Morethro w their weight around, to make up for some personal weakness perhaps. The board should be happy to have you. Best wishes.

Sizzler? Why would anyone support Sizzler? And how is that a "local" business? TheRead Morepopul ation of RP going down 1,200 over 10 years is not a bad thing. There are too many people here. I believe the city was designed to accomodate 40,000, and the population is still above that. Having too many people is a drain on the resources. Commuters are taking the place of other residents? This is a bedroom community. Always has been. That means most residents are commuters. If older people are leaving due to the high cost of living, they must be leaving the state, entirely. I liked Pacific Market, but it was overpriced and understocked. The current Costco seems to be doing fine. There were long lines yesterday, in the middle of the day. I doubt too many people stay at Santa Rosa hotels, either. The Doubletree in RP is pretty nice, though.

I fail to see how the casino will be unfair competition and cause other local businesses to go outRead Moreo f business. The only people competing with the casino would be local restaurants. They probably should be worried, because there is better food in the casino than ijust about anywhere else in RP. What is wrong with tourists, exactly? They bring money to town. Especially if they stay in a local hotel. I haven't seen any strip clubs yet, and don't really expect to. One casino does not make RP anything like Vegas or Atlantic City. Those places are destinations. The RP Casino is something to visit while you're in the area, or maybe a place for Bay Area residents to drive to. But there's one casino, no dancing girls, no big concerts, or any of that. It's way too early to say if the casino will be good or bad for RP, but more people know of RP than before.

Great Article. Back in 2000 there were photos with articles (then) that showed many men andRead Morechildren who had their limbs cut off from these tyrants to force them into this slavery. Unfortunately, no one noticed. In 2003 they found that most of these diamond mines and the sellers were funding Terrorist Groups to fight us. And no one noticed.
