Re: “Big Turnout for Tiny Homes

Unfortunately, only a minority of the homeless have $$ for a semi-permanent house of any size. The only proven solution is a tiny independent apartment as long as needed at no cost.

Utah discovered that this pays for itself from the savings in public emergency services.

Homelessness is the county's legal responsibility.

If local residents want the indigent to achieve the dignity required to be reintegrated, they will have to elect an entirely new board of supervisors capable of thinking beyond their ideological prejudices.

The current "developer board" is laser-focused on property rights.

Re: “Impact of Shaded Parcels Settlement Remains Shaded

They haven't had the staff or budget to get this done for decades and now they have 60 days?

File this with the other reports on the huge benefits for the development industry to spend whatever it takes to control county government, regardless of shrinking municipal budgets, collapsing infrastructure, water shortages, affordable housing shortages, closing schools, etc, it's full-steam ahead for the 3rd housing bubble in just one generation!

It would require a team of one dozen full-time employees a year, using Google Earth, to locate far more than the "600 remaining properties of uncertain status". There are probably thousands more that are readily identifiable from their tell-tale structures that also lack documentation.

It's SoCal redux, corrupt to the core, having their cake and eating it too.

It's up to nature now and her bat is swinging faster than the scientists estimated.

Re: “Big Turnout for Tiny Homes

My partner and I were thrilled to attend this event and to have the opportunity to contribute by bidding on and acquiring the "Wee" tiny home. We are grateful to Nezzie Wade, her neighbor and her 'team' who assisted in delivering the shed to our home. Homelessness is not impossible to solve, but it takes the efforts of groups such as AHHA to imagine and execute practical solutions.

Re: “Hoopa PD No More

The Hoopa PD will probably continue enforcing civil laws such as timber trespass, fishing, environmental enforcement and others set forth under Hoopa Tribal Codes. They will have domestic violence jurisdiction and if successful, will have Federal Police deputization. So to say the police department will be no more is wrong.

Can the north coast journal stop outsourcing artists? Stop using stock imagery. It's fucking so fucking goddamn lame, unlocal, and uberstupid that there's no excuse for it other than laziness and inconsideration.

Re: “The Reluctant Cyclist

I recently started riding again, after my bike was stolen two years ago. I can't say enough how much I enjoy my recreational ride along the bay and ocean up here in Crescent City on a sunny day. I once rode on busy streets with no problem, but I'm now retired and will avoid busy streets. I've been watching YouTube videos of bicycling in Amsterdam (do a search) and would love to have that kind of bike infrastructure here.

Re: “Murky Waters

I found this article poorly conceived. The KBRA was not so much a deal to remove the four hydroelectric dams as it was a deal for PacifiCorps to bypass the Endangered Species Act, as well as a water deal for the irrigators and the farmers, one that would have been a death knell for the fish in dry years. The US Congress was never interested in passing it, particularly because legislators would have had to pony up nearly a billion dollars, which clearly does not appeal to fiscal conservatives, not to mention how they view enforcing the ESA and helping Native Americans. Far better is it that the tribes collectively withdraw from this charade, unite, and bring a class action lawsuit (and invite the commercial fishermen and the environmental groups, too) against FERC for their clear violation of federal law in the form of the Clean Water Act and the ESA. Whether FERC is in favor of dam removal or not is irrelevant. The law applies to everyone, even PacifiCorps, with its 20 million dollar profit a year at the cost of everyone involved.

Re: “The Reluctant Cyclist

Terrific series--more please!…

The next step for us would be Gold--and perhaps, someday the coveted Platinum level--like Stanford University and almost all of Holland. The Dutch have a country the size of New Jersey with 10,000 miles of dedicated bike trails. They get health care, bike infrastructure and social benefits for their tax guilders; we get aircraft carriers. And balloon people (virtually unknown in Holland)

Anyway, ride on Jennifer!

Your fan, Gordon Inkeles

Subject to paragraph (2), subsection (d), and the Agreements, but without otherwise affecting any right secured by a treaty, Executive order, or other law, the Party tribes (on behalf of the tribes and the members of the tribes) may relinquish and release certain claims against the United States (including any Federal agencies and employees) described in sections 15.3.5.A, 15.3.6.B.i, and 15.3.7.B.i of the Restoration Agreement and, in the case of the Klamath Tribes, section 2.5 of the Upper Basin Agreement.
The relinquishments and releases under paragraph (1) shall not take force or effect until the terms described in sections 15.3.5.C, 15.3.5.D, 15.3.6.B.iii, 15.3.7.B.iii, 15.3.7.B.iv, and 33.2.1 of the Restoration Agreement and sections 2.4 and 10 of the Upper Basin Agreement have been fulfilled.
(d)Retention of rights of party tribes

Re: “You Never Give Me Your Money

"go figure"??? Maybe awesome little independent venues operating on shoe string budgets, like the sanctuary, should charge an arm and a leg for admission outright, so as to be spared your snide jabs when "promoting" them? Five bucks to see a show at the sanctuary is a great deal. Great music, great people, great venue, great price.
