Re: “Ramen Rumble

Boy oh boy, there is so much more to ramen than instant noodles. Once you eat "real" ramen, I mean with noodles that aren't dried, and a rich broth simmered for over and hour, topped with vegetables, savory sweet meat slices, and marinated soft boiled eggs, everything kind of pales in comparison. But frozen ramen noodles (fresher the better!) can also be obtained from the Little Japan Market and will blow instant noodles right out of the water. I've had every attempt at ramen in restaurants from Eureka to Arcata and I gotta say they're kind of missing the mark. Makes me want to open a Ramen shop and give humboldtians a real treat.

Re: “UPDATE: CHP Seeking Persons of Interest in Fortuna Hit and Run

The police have had all the facts for some time, and if they haven't made an arrest by now there has to be a problem. Once an arrest and charges made, we need to know why all of this took so long.

Re: “Let it All Out

"When government agencies withhold information, people suspect that officials are trying to cover up bad or illegal behavior. Cover-ups are often worse than the crimes committed."
(Marcy Burstiner).

Are you serious?

That might have been true before an irony-weary public became too numb over a rigged society saturated in illegal behavior and cover-ups. Despite the Bernie Sanders "movement" and $1 billion dollars of media hype for 18 months, 80% of the potential voters abstained from the 2016 presidential primaries.

Today, Americans are not effectively protected as a whistle-blower and everyone from the janitor to the CAO keeps their mouth shut. They know that no one is watching, and if they are, the story will appear once before disappearing forever. If a similar story occurs it is usually reported as another isolated incident. In the worst examples, from police shooting unarmed poor kids to nationwide complicity with top Wall Street mortgage fraud, (having wrongly foreclosed tens of millions of families and crashing the world economy), few, outside the working poor and minorities, ever go to jail. When business or government is "held to account" there is usually a confidential "no-fault" monetary settlement paid by taxpayers or shareholders and the executive keeps his job. The "bad behavior" of Deborah Wasserman Schultz, former disgraced DNC chair, eclipsed without an investigation. Where's the public clamor?

Anyone actually paying attention to the media would be driven insane from the cognitive dissonance. Media reported a grieving U.S. Muslim father, (who lost his Muslim son in the Iraq war), responding to Donald Trump's anti-Muslim bigotry, "...would you like to borrow my copy of the U.S. Constitution Mr. Trump?" If the U.S. followed its Constitution only Congress could declare war on Iraq and Mr. Khan's son would probably still be alive. Media plays a huge role in distorting the public reality.

Back when student journalists were taught how to do their jobs professionally, share in their community's outrage and encouraged to do fact-finding, investigative work without fear or favor and without being outcast to the dwindling "alternative" press, (the consequence of the Bill Clinton administration's deregulation of media ownership), government agencies used to be far more selective in withholding information BECAUSE there were courageous journalists in most communities.

If public-interest reporting returned, would subscriptions increase? Would people return from the blogs in desperate search of meaningful community information?

For example, there were no headlines, nor followup, after Eureka's Public Service Officers faced layoffs and told the press, "We're handling 700 missing person reports each year, mostly youths". This is a community where volunteers operate second-hand stores to raise funds for wayward dogs while its county supervisors fight the CA Attorney General's subpoenas to investigate Humboldt's Child Welfare Services.

Would more residents rediscovery the usefulness of a "community newspaper" if Humboldt County's shocking "Trends Report" were headlined each quarter that it is published??

Oh, never heard of it? Hmmm.

Media shares a HUGE responsibility nationally and locally for the unprecedented collapse of the economy, healthcare, public services, housing, and the environment, due to the ignorance it perpetuates in every crisis we face.

Re: “Prepare for Impact

JoanRN and Chad obviously did no research and perhaps are trolls. Joan mentions the US Supreme Court - the same group who called vaccines Unavoidably Unsafe, and removed liability to the makers of vaccines basically due to the possibility of too many lawsuits caused by injury and death from said vaccines. These two missed the fact that many vaccines have killed more people than the disease they are supposed to prevent. Pertussis vaccinated individuals, at the recommended amounts have the highest rates of .... wait....Pertussis, 3x more than non vaccinated children. The highest rates of mumps also happen in vaccinated people. And then there are the side effects of the vaccines themselves - autoimmune disease, allergies, eczema, higher rates of shingles, and on and on, not to mention seizures and brain damage. And perhaps cancer and heart problems, dementia, Parkinsons, etc. No long term studies of the current schedule have been done, so no one really knows what may happen in 20, 30 40 years, assuming you live that long. I forgot to mention paralysis.

Re: “Not Even From Around Here

I just drove the Mattole road from Ferndale into AW Way Campground for a few days, a quick stop into Honeydew for gas and EVERY person who passed us on the road waved. The waves were enthusiastic, consistent and each came with a smile. Was it my classic Ford 4x4 that provoked the locals to be friendly? Did they know of my Portuguese decent from my grandfather and great aunt who immigrated to Ferndale in the 60's? I highly doubt it. Just the most friendly warm folks I've come across in Humboldt. Pordagees, Bulgarians, eastern European who knows. What I can confirm is I had a great experience and felt welcome! Leaving Ferndale when I was a child to return to Humboldt as an adult, all i can say is Thank you!
Great article, LOVE the bridge!

According to this BS277(yesBS) "law" healthy unvaccinated children are danger for others, but children with HIV and HepB are not? Where is a logic? Or it is long gone from this country?

Re: “Not Even From Around Here

I find the Bulgarians of Humboldt County to be extremely polite and amagable. I think the reason they get a bad rap is because they are good at what they do. Their professionalism in their work is extremely apparent. They take greater risks then their neighbors. Therefore greater reward. All interactions I have had have been pleasant. They might even be willing to help you out as a neighbor if your not a bigot. America is a country of immigrants, it's a melting pot of cultures. If you don't like culture start packing.

Re: “Prepare for Impact

another case of Big business in the commons! Now we are paying taxes for even more poisons and administered on children! It is differently a breach of liberty and the pursuit of happiness! Homeopathy worked just as well as vaccines back in the day~ read your history about vaccines and Homeopathy~ so they should have that alternative! yet it is medical and military influence all the way through school and college. I remember how frustrated i got at recruiters at my sons High School being allowed to recruit but people coming to talk about why not to go military got kicked off school grounds.
water, school, streets, parks are some of the commons and would best be kept minutly governed, and pure/clear of big business influence.
If fluoride is so great then just send me a bottle and I will add to my own water, if vaccines are so great then I would be vaccinated..... what is great and increases life sells itself!
Also we are sold that there is just this one option from the world that is selling them and pushing them. The same thing is done with cancer~ surgery chemo and radiation or just go home and see. Yet people are curing themselves of cancer and more in many ways out of the medical system. again this reeks of big business ! same as c sections~ and the quickness of many surgical procedures! It is the system not the doc!
let people be free~ that was the whole point of this country~ to end tyranny~ this is right up there with Fascism and Dictator behavior~
thats my feelings on it all at this moment!

Bressler, a Nurse Aid is being prosecuted as we speak after a doctor and a Nurse signed a release stating there was nothing wrong with Mrs. Jeannie Newstrom upon release to Frys Nursing home. Is that not a travesty and an attempt to transfer blame away from a Doctor and a Registered Nurse
