“Fire 13-4” now has a name: The Walbridge Fire. Don’t ask me. I have no idea how they come up with these designations. The evacuation areas (whether mandatory or warning) seem to have expanded, but Sonoma County’s incident map seems to be down and the notifications I get refer to map grids on a map I don’t know where or how to find.
Bill Peduto condemned the plainclothes arrest of a protester mentioned in my most recent blog post and ordered that such tactics not be used in future misdemeanor arrests, but protesters continued to target him, demonstrating outside his home. It would seem the mayor does not appreciate demonstrations that disturb the neighbors in the wee hours. Poor baby. He could have met with them as they demanded, but instead accused one of a felony.
