Salty Situation

Fort Ross State Historical Park is a treasured part of many visits to the Sonoma coast. Today, its parkland is threatened by a scheme to pump salt water out of our national marine sanctuary there, store it in a reservoir on the top of a nearby ridge and then run turbines as it comes back down the hill.

This wasteful project would decimate a lovely redwood grove, intrude on what is obviously a valued piece of our history and be built directly on top of where the San Andreas Fault moved fences and roads 10 feet sideways during the 1906 earthquake.

A comment period is running on this plan until Aug. 28, and interested members of the public are invited to provide their thoughts on this at SaveFortRoss.com.

Innocent Until

Wow! I’m almost certain Donald Trump’s last incarnation was as a circus barker or ringmaster.

That aside, I believe he is innocent until proven guilty.

For his entire presidency, he was wrongly prosecuted by the press and public for Russia-gate. The New York Times’ and Washington Post’s shared Nobel Prize award citation was for their deeply sourced and relentlessly reported coverage that furthered the public’s understanding of Trump and his Russian interference in the 2016 election.

I saw no retractions after the Durham Report cleared Trump. Loretta Bresh (“Indictment Excitement,” Aug. 16) wrote that a trial must proceed without political interference. Whoops; too late.
