Providing shelter for 79 people is a great benefit to those 79 & to the larger community. People with shelter are more likely to gain employment & to become able to take care of themselves and then can go on to give back to the community. -abe farag
I presented a 3-page analyses to the city council describing in minute detail why the Marina Way location presents health and safety hazards to the homeless, and why it goes against the original intent expressed in the General Plan, ordinance No. 5-201, the Industrial/Coastal Dependent zoning designation,and so on. Also noted are significant hazards presented by Dock B, flooding, lack of safe "back door" (exit) from the end of a pocket street, noise pollution from the next door logging operation, not to mention the loss of many parking spaces for visitors. Also, cars, pedestrians and wheelchairs wouldn't be allowed to go the whole stretch of Marina Way. Some think that Marina Way offers more privacy than other sites, but that is an illusion promoted by those who don't know the street very well. In addition to it being the coldest and dampest place in Winter around here, the Coastal Commission advised the Eureka City Council on Monday to scrap this location. Good!
Another protector lost. Rest easy brother.
Marina way would be good on the very short term, but not long term. Long term, the city of Eureka needs to Work on cleaning up and developing the waterfront. There's so much real estate right on the water that's home to derelict buildings, junk heaps, and empty lots of tattered unkempt grass. The whole stretch needs to be cleaned up and re-zoned. It would cost millions up front but that land could bring in many millions more, were it a pristine tourist destination. And to get back on subject, it would allow for the creation of hundreds of jobs.

Richard fisher taught me something in. Grandcanyonof Cambodia.for 3centuries,before monuments,tight grid residential neighborhoods with pond on each block.we all poop so much we poison ourselves with our runoff. Oink oink.corruption fears my type.
I hope the Marina Way location isn't chosen. Regular visitors and tourists are being told to sacrifice a recreational public right of way to a minority. Furthermore, the street is covered under public safety ordinance No5-201 and is zoned Industrial/Coastal Dependent. It's not suitable for human habitation and isn't near any services at all. Bad choice all the way around.
The City Of Eureka is getting pretty good at taking people and moving them from bad situations to even worse situations, while forcing those people into even more dependency upon government. Beats the heck out of bringing living-wage jobs to the area and HEALING healthcare that doesn't just turn people into pain-filled addicts who are conditioned to see drugs as the only "answer"...
"Humboldt County 4th District Supervisor Virginia Bass refers to challenges Chinn's outreach faced from local business owners and the city of Eureka as a 'dark time in our recent history.'"
Local business owners are still fighting the tools that get affordable housing and SRO's built, ie, policies, ordinances and fees that make temporary group shelters obsolete.
Celebrating a temporary shelter while fighting humane policies and turning independent motel housing into boarded-up firetraps is reprehensible.

Another Paul Gallegos in our D.A. Office. What a sad and pathetic world we live in. The only thing between Maggie Fleming is they probably had the girl tested for Alcohol and Drugs. When I lost my 2 daughters and there friend in an auto Accident almost 13 years ago the male driver of that car was never drug or Alcohol tested. His family has a history of drug abuse. He got off with just a slap on the wrist for killing 3 people and there was almost a 4th death in this accident. The kid was on a Suspended License and had no Insurance. So we didn't see squat not that that mattered. What mattered was seeing that Justice was served but Paul Gallegos could not prosecute him because he didn't feel like it and we later Learned the judge in the case Christopher Wilson once dated his Aunt. We never learned that till the trial was over tho. The judge should have at least excused himself for. Conflict of interest. Yes I did go to the Bar Association in San Francisco against the Judge Assocation and was told beings trial was over we couldn't appeal for a new trial. Now we understand how corrupt our justice system really is and the sadest. Part is us Tax Payers are the one who pays there wages. Time for the Laws to Change somehow and quickly.
I am so sorry for your loss.

Yesterday, I walked in my first ever Pride march. I enjoyed the march and festival and felt both welcome and safe. The people around me seemed to be having fun, at ease, and glad to be there. I'm glad that I went and I greatly appreciate how it was easy to participate and support Pride and the LGBT community.
Where did you get that these bullets were from a BB gun? The things lodged into the wall after making it through windows, blinds, and curtains.
Despite Humboldt Pride's claims of creating a safe space for the festival, many people did not feel safe to attend as it is members of the Humboldt Pride BOD that are being investigated for the shootings.
The moderated, open forum you mention is something that's been organized by Humboldt Pride with their chosen moderator. It is not a neutral event and a fair outcome cannot be expected.
NCJ, you're amateurs. Obviously your readers are better reporters than any of you! Stop with the BS apologies, and focus on your jobs instead -- then this sort of crap won't happen.
Plus, Rick Breen sounds like a bad liar.
