This “othering” of a class of people different from ourselves is not only reserved for black people, not only for people of color, but for people of sexual difference, and the poor; and it is a license to kill. It may serve us for a time but it does not help us. The pressure that builds up as we suppress feelings we do not want to own eventually creates an explosion, not always physical but violent and destructive nevertheless, whether it takes the form of police brutality, genocide, war or domestic abuse.

We are moving into a time of corporate control over just about every facet of our lives. The Big Box stores we fought to keep out of our town are now operating behind the veil of their Internet shopping sites. If we look at the little things, it’s apparent that the clock has turned back on many of our better practices. Remember bringing your own bag into the grocery store? Paper bags are now piling up next to my fridge. Filling your water jug with filtered water instead of buying plastic gallon bottles? for recycling, but we don’t have great recycling program place.The world that is emerging on the other side of this pandemic could be sterile, wrapped in plastic, and controlled by the invisible Wizard of Inc.

If you’re worried about food safety, keep in mind that fresh farm produce has actually passed through fewer hands than the food at the grocery store! For the past couple of months, Redwood Food Bank has extended its services specifically for seniors. There’s a monthly drop off at Sonoma Creek on Oregon Street. FarmTrails has gathered some information about farms that are delivering farm products or accepting new members into their CSAs.

Homelessness is now a global problem, and Sonoma is no longer immune. On February 1, a teenage girl was accosted by a homeless man along the trail near the ballpark, the Police Department, and the Haven, our small homeless shelter. She fought him off, but the incident caused an uproar. Mayor Logan called a special community meeting. Some 300 locals attended. Watch the City council meeting on the issue in the article.

This is a local column, but there are times our hearts must stretch beyond our territory. The Board of Supervisors has approved a temporary shelter for homeless people across the highway from Oakmont at Los Guillicos, a detention center for delinquent youth. Many Oakmonters have objected to this choice of location. Lets to help make the situation workable.
