The head of California’s health insurance market place, Covered Ca,  said Tuesday that more than  16,000 households have completed applications in  the first five days of enrollment, largely overcoming  early technical setbacks that continue to hamper  other states. 

Covered California estimates that over the first six  months between roughly 500,000 and 700,000  customers who are eligible for a subsidy will enroll in the marketplace. 

California officials determined that 28,699 people in

 the 16,311 households that have applied are eligible for coverage. Another 27,305 households have 

partially completed their applications. In addition, 430 small businesses registered .

Despite getting off to the rocky start, Covered 

California has racked up 987,440 unique visitors to its website and more than 59,000 calls into its customer service center through Saturday. Californians have 

until Dec. 15 to sign up for coverage that begins Jan. 1. 




At least two Sonoma county democrats are entering

 the 2nd District Senate race to replace Sen Noreen Evans who is retiring.

Mike McGuire,a Sonoma County supervisor, and 

Freshman Santa RosaCouncilwoman Erin Carlstrom announced Monday and Tuesday.

According to the Santa Rosa Press Democrat, the moves are a jolt to the state Senate race, which had 

already attracted two candidates from opposite ends of the sprawling district.

McGuire, 34, a former Healdsburg mayor, would be 

an immediate frontrunner in the current field, some 

political observers said. McGuire's first term 

representing the north county ends next year. If he

 runs for the Legislature, it would open up a seat on

 the Board of Supervisors in the June primary, 

unsettling a race that once seemed predictable with an incumbent on a clear path to reelection.

Carlstrom's situation is different. Unlike McGuire, she can run for higher office without risk of losing her 

current seat on the Santa Rosa council, which is up 

for election in 2016.

A 30-year-old attorney who has been in city office less than a 

year,  Carlstrom is currently on maternity leave from

 the Santa Rosa council. She plans to return to public duties Nov. 5 and hold a campaign kick-off Nov. 13.

Chris Lehman, a 36-year-old Arcata resident and longtime state Senate staffer, and Eric Lucan, 32, who was elected to the Novato 

City Council in 2011 are the other announced 

candidates. All are democrats.

Potential Republican challengers include Lawrence Weisner, a Santa Rosa resident who lost against 

Evans in 2010.






















Facing the prospect of a prolonged federal 

government shutdown, Gov. Jerry Brown will soon 

need to decide if the state will shoulder the cost to 

keep running federal programs used by millions of 


State officials say there's no guarantee that critical

social services in California — such as food stamps

subsidized school meals and nutrition assistance for pregnant women and infants — could run without 

interruption in November.

The Brown administration has not yet said if it plans to plug the gaps for social programs at the end of the


H.D. Palmer, spokesman for the Department of 

Finance said the department is continuing to evaluate potential impacts of the shutdown.

But it is unclear if California has the ability — and 

political will — to draw substantial funds out of the 

state's recovering budget to serve as a stopgap.

Food stamp benefits, which are collected by 4.7 

million people, would cost at least $640 million per 

month. The WIC program, which provides food 

vouchers for pregnant women, infants and young 

children, costs an average of $87.5 million per month to serve around 1.4 million participants.

Caltrans announced today that the Route 53

 rehabilitation project in Lake County will require traffic control on Saturday, October 12 at the Intersection of Route 53 with Lakeshore Drive/40th Avenue from10

AM to 10PM.  Motorists should anticipate up to 15-minute delays.
