Re: “McKinleyville Arts Night

It's wonderful that a thriving artistic community is developing in McKinleyville. I moved there in 1975 when it was not-so-affectionately deemed "Oklahoma By the Sea." Culture there at the time was mainly remnants of a dying timber industry. Sewage from failed septic systems flowed through ditches along Central Avenue. McKinley's most prominent feature was the world's tallest phony pole. Education was frowned upon and considered a sell-out to city-slicker elites.

Back then McKinleyville seemed like a Euraka suburb. Now it seems like an Arcata suburb, which is a huge improvement.

My favorite holdover from those days is that "Horses have the Right of Way."

Re: “McKinleyville Arts Night

Great artwork. McKinleyville has come a long way since it was aptly named "Oklahoma By the Sea."

I think it's great that Mckinleyville is starting to do this. I hope it takes off.

Re: “First Saturday Night Arts Alive!
