            North Bay Week in Review 12/9/11 I’m Michelle Olivera, and this is your North Bay Week in Review for December 9th, 2011 Hundreds of customers at more than 20 Lucky supermarkets around the bay area have been victimized by a high tech crime operation that pirated their account information from the stores’ self-checkout scanning machines. The total losses and number of breached accounts is still being added up. Stores in Petaluma and Novato were among the locations that were targeted. Chinook salmon are spawning in the Russian River in notably greater numbers this winter. Counts from the Sonoma County Water Agency’s fish ladder in Healdsburg have already counted more fish than in any of the past five years, all of them returning to Dry Creek and its tributaries. Improved food supplies in the open ocean are one factor in the higher numbers of returning Chinook. The annual count began last August, and continues through December 21st. Calistoga’s rent stabilization ordinance is under fire from the owners of a local mobile home park. They have filed lawsuits in both Napa county and federal courts seeking a bitterly contested a rent increase for the 184 lots at the Rancho de Calistoga Mobile Home Park. The suits also demand that the ordinance be struck down as an illegal government “taking” of private property without compensation. Courts are not expected to hear the cases until well into next year, at the earliest. Occupy Wall Street got a rare endorsement from the Sebastopol city council this week. The resolution, passed on a 4-0 vote, recognizes the underlying economic inequities that have fueled the movement. Occupy Sebastopol held a confrontation-free encampment in the city’s central plaza for three weeks, subsequently downsized to an information tent that remains there with the city’s permission. North Bay commuters got an early Christmas present from Caltrans. The highway agency opened new carpool lanes between Petaluma Blvd North and Rohnert Park Expressway, expanding that 7 mile stretch of Highway 101 to three lanes in each direction. Final cosmetic work on the $82 million project will get wrapped up next summer. That’s all for this Week In Review, I’m Michelle Olivera. See you next week!

              I'm Michelle Olivera, and this is your North Bay Week in Review for September 23rd, 2011 The Sonoma State student who was texting while driving when she struck and killed a 2-year-old in Rohnert Park last December plead no contest to misdemeanor vehicular manslaughter Thursday. 18-year-old Kaitlyn Dunaway will likely receive probation instead of jail time. The Great Handcar Regatta returns to Santa Rosa's Railroad Square this Sunday in what could be its last appearance. Regatta organizer, Ty Jones, is in the midst of discussions with the SMART commuter rail organization which is planning rail line construction next Fall. And, as if that wasn't enough of a wrinkle, after three years of hot temperatures, steampunk and handcar revelers might be treated to rain this year.... National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administraton reports a 30% chance of RAIN and high of 70F for Santa Rosa & most of the North Bay on Sunday: http://goo.gl/Dt6e7 Likelihood increases the further North, with Eureka sporting an 80% chance of the wet stuff. Nurses at more than 30 not-for-profit hospitals in California--including Kaiser and Sutter Medical Center in Santa Rosa -- staged a one-day strike Thursday. Nurses were protesting against proposals to cuts to their benefit and retirement packages. Optical sales at Kaiser were closed for the day, and some elective surgeries had to be rescheduled at both North Bay hospitals. A third sample of mosquitoes collected in Lake County this month has tested positive for West Nile Virus. The Lake County News reports that to date, the positive samples have come from Middletown and Kelseyville. Officials are reminding residents and visitors to wear long sleeves and pants, and to always wear mosquito repellant. http://lakeconews.com/content/view/21535/919/ In this week's most improbable local news, a large model rocket fell from 4000 feet to hit the rolling bicycle tire of Rohnert Park resident Jim Hayes. As Jim was riding across the remote Nevada desert to recover a different rocket, another fell from the sky, missing Jim by inches, destroying his bike frame and back wheel... No word on whether he played the lottery that day. Glad you're still here to tell the story Jim. You can find images and the whole story in Jim's words at NorthBayVoice.org. That's all for this Week In Review, I'm Michelle Olivera. See you next week!

                  I’m Michelle Olivera, and this is your North Bay Week in Review for October 28th, 2011 Occupy Santa Rosa announced plans late this week to boost their presence at City Hall with tents and a larger encampment. The expansion, set for Saturday night, is banned by city ordinances, and appears to be a response to the police crackdown Wednesday at Occupy Oakland. Santa Rosa officials have confirmed that the Police Department intends to enforce the camping ban. In Marin news, Katie Rice, an administrative aide to former Marin County Supervisor Hal Brown, has been appointed to fill his seat (!) Rice will be sworn in on Tuesday morning. Brown recently announced his resignation in order to focus on his 10-month battle with pancreatic cancer. Sonoma County Supervisors revisited their rules for medical cannabis clubs, this week. Among the tentative changes is a tighter limit on the number of dispensaries that will be permitted. Eleven pot shops were proposed, and nine were approved by the Board. SMART and the group seeking to repeal its funding continued their procedural kerfuffle this week. The most recent issues concern ballot language as well as the number of signatures needed to qualify the repeal. City leaders in American Canyon, which is nestled between Napa and Vallejo, were hoping to earn some needed funds by staging concerts at their High School’s new and well-equipped theater. But, with only 450 seats, they were told that the idea was risky and not likely to earn big bucks. More on American Canyon’s Show-A-Palooza aspirations at the NapaValleyRegister.com Speaking of “Paloozas” INSECTAPALOOZA! Saturday Oct 29th (tomorrow!) 9am to 4pm at Sonoma State University.
