Re: “Service Call

Heidi is one of the best people I know. I have known her for two decades and she is as real and authentic now, as she wa the first time I met her. More than this, Heidi has a passion and heart for people, especially those who experience barriers to access and have difficulty overcoming those on their own. Heidi will make an excellent city council woman. Eureka is lucky to have her!

Re: “Profits over People?

Venezuela forced businesses to stay open and operate at a loss. How did that work out for them? And the argument that a company is making money elsewhere in the state and should accept whatever profit margin this region deems appropriate is ludicrous. They should be allowed to close and move on. A company is not responsible for your loved ones--YOU are!

Re: “Service Call

She is incredible! I was so impressed by Heidi as she quickly responded to the Humboldt Builders Exchange's request to meet with her regarding our safety concerns! She is a great listener and cares about making positive changes in our community!

Re: “Mold School

I find it incredibly hypocritical that the government that offers monitory rewards for whistle blowing against private parties, will jail or fire those that whistle blow against them.

Re: “Mold School

I feel that if this had happened in Eureka there would have been a lot more investigating on the part of our local media. Teachers and staff are electing to leave the district rather than continue under this man, qualified people that KTJUSD can't afford to lose.

Re: “What Will Happen to Ma and Pa?

If they are put in one of the local facilities, the survivors--or the family of the deceased--might get a whopping $450.00.…

Re: “What Will Happen to Ma and Pa?

"Rockport's relocation plans, which include available space locally for just 44 of the 190 people who would potentially be displaced by the closure."

No room for the elderly, no room for the homeless, no room for the addicted and mentally ill, no room for troubled youths, Humboldt County's legacy of neglect (and negligence) in serving the weakest members of their community continues.

Is there no planning in this county to get housing built for all classes of residents?

Follow the money...

Re: “Prove Them Wrong

Betty's Village must not be allowed to close.

I am glad to hear City Manager Greg Sparks hint a better location with funding is in the works. Without Betty the problem in Eureka would be much worse. We are lucky to have her.

Re: “Prove Them Wrong

This is just a fantastic article, Thad! Of all of the great stuff you've written over the years, I think this might be my favorite :-) Betty Chinn is a force of nature, and your writing has done her justice.

Re: “Prove Them Wrong

"Chinn was largely unwelcome in Old Town."

Actually, Old Town wasn't welcomed in Old Town and many of the same old crony-capitalists running this county wanted it leveled back in the 1950's...but they didn't want to spend their own little has changed.

They still want big government to provide infrastructure and emergency services so they can build their big profit, big homes miles from downtown in the third bailed-out housing bubble in 30 years, while making damn sure no affordable housing tools are enacted by local government.

We wouldn't need to intern the destitute in indignant parking lots and boxcars had this county reserved 1% of its budget for SRO housing construction to be matched with state and federal grants, a more effective, permanent solution that would save the public millions of dollars each year in police and emergency services.

The only problem: Humboldt County government doesn't work in the public interest.

This story should be titled: "Shafted by Communists, Shafted by Capitalists".

Re: “Prepare for Impact


God bless Dr.UKO for his marvelous work in my life, I was diagnosed of ZIKA DISEASES since 2014 and I was taking my medications, I wasn't satisfied i needed to get the ZIKA out of my system, I searched about some possible cure for ZIKA DISEASES i saw a comment about Dr.UKO, how he cured ZIKA DISEASES with his herbal medicine, I contacted him and he guided me. I asked for solutions, he started the remedy for my health, he sent me the medicine through UPS SPEED POST. I took the medicine as prescribed by him and 7 days later i was cured from ZIKA DISEASES, Dr. UKO truly you are great, do you need his help also? Why don't you contact him through whatsapp him on

Re: “Suing Squires

The Squire's family has been in the low-income rental business dating back to the patriarch of the family Floyd Squires Sr. They own properties throughout Humboldt County not just in Eureka. The have had a decades long pattern of litigation which is factored into their bottom line.

Re: “DA, Police Chiefs Mull Video Policy

“Mills said if a shooting draws a fierce public backlash and people are "getting ready to riot," Mills would like the flexibility to release video of the incident early, if he thinks it would quell unrest and benefit public safety.”

Got that?

Eureka’s police chief wants the “flexibility” to nearly cause a riot before releasing a video! Haven’t we been seeing enough of those riots nationwide?

This issue offers another example of how elected D.A.’s are tied at the hip with law enforcement and against the public interest. Every county should have an independent federal prosecutor instead.

While all our law enforcement agencies circle their wagons, the public has little choice but to immediately install their own, (carefully hidden), auto and body-cams to activate while being confronted by police because police are widely reported to be detaining people, including business owners, after confiscating their cell phone and video recording equipment used to capture lethal police misconduct.

Law enforcement officials “all agree” videos lack context. In fact, they consistently prove that too many officers are killing people because they appear scared. Two years is insufficient to train the thousands of people rushing to become police in this worsening economy, desperate for a living wage job and to retire in just 20 years with a good pension. Their real fear is that these videos will sway public demands that the U.S. join the other industrialized nations where police are not armed, and yet, enjoy far lower incidents of civilians being wrongly killed by police and police being shot by civilians than in the U.S.

Most other nations banned executions long ago after the public had a good, long look.

Re: “DA, Police Chiefs Mull Video Policy

Humboldt County's version of San Diego's disclosure policy will of course add the stipulation that if a cop beats up a 14 year old, nobody will ever get to see the video.
