President Donald Trump announced Judge Amy Coney Barrett as his Supreme Court nominee on Saturday at an event with 150 attendees. 

Almost a week later on Friday, Trump tested positive for COVID-19. Now the event has come under some scrutiny, as at least seven attendees have tested positive for the virus this week.

It’s unclear if the Rose Garden gathering was a super-spreader event, or how or when those who contracted COVID-19 got the virus — whether at the event or elsewhere.

Will Seattle Seahawks pick an interior offensive lineman in NFL draft?

Posted on

Even though we have been doing it for months, it’s always hard to predict what the Seattle Seahawks will do in the NFL draft.

Their two most recent first round selections, Rashaad Penny in 2018 and L.J. Collier in 2019, were hardly expected – as Penny didn’t fill a positional need and Collier was not considered a first round talent by most evaluators.

SANTA ROSA

Order your veggies now

Every year the Harvest for the Hungry Garden in Santa Rosa throws the mother of all plant sales. Despite the coronavirus quarantine, organizers have decided not to pull the plug on the event. They’ll just change it to suit the times.

Instead of lining up and filing their carts and baskets, people can place an online order and pick up their starts the day of the sale without leaving their cars.

Volunteers have potted thousands of peppers, tomatoes and other vegetable and starts, along with dozens of flowers and habitat plants for the annual sale, which supports the garden and its efforts to provide fresh produce for people in need.

Buyers may schedule a pickup time online at the time they place their order. The deadline to place orders and make appointments for pickup is April 22. All of the available plants are listed
