Courthouse Square

Anti-racism march in Santa Rosa

Demonstrations throughout our listening area—in Santa Rosa, Petaluma, Cotati and Cloverdale—protested white nationalist activities in Charlottesville, Va. over the weekend that resulted in three deaths. The outrage was stoked by President Trump's vague statements about the blame being spread "on many sides," and his refusal to immediately condemn the Nazis, KKK, and other alt-right members who led the marches there.

The slideshow above features signs and crowds in Santa Rosa, where a rally and march began at 4 pm in Courthouse Square. 

Courthouse Square Tree Removal Questioned

City of Santa Rosa

Plans for an updated and reunified Courthouse Square in downtown Santa Rosa will mean the removal of some trees--perhaps several dozen—including some of the towering redwoods. That may be a point of contention as the project moves forward.

  Santa Rosa City Councilman Gary Wysocky says he understands the concerns being expressed by the defenders of the Courthouse Square redwoods, but feels they are a bit premature.
