Re: “Follow the Money

The largest part of increasing government expenditures is public employee health and pension costs.

Re: “The Blue Cross Blues

How simple minded we must be to allow our elected officials to create a medical plan that is "good enough for the american citizen!" Yet they refuse to be part of it and have their own plan. Enough is enough! It should be a mandate that they participate and allow no other palns. Also there should be no pension or benefits granted to any elected official after they are out of office. This was supposed to be a "public service" not a career field.

Re: “Weed Disagree

Wow am so grateful for the good Rick Simpson [edited] did for me and my family for curing my husband’s prostate cancer of 3 years. My name is Suzane Clark from Oklahoma USA, June 2 2010 my husband was diagnosed of prostate cancer and he had done all sorts of treatments (chemo, radio and herbal) and his doctor still gave no hope for his condition, after his last chemo treatment on 10/08/2013 the doctor told him that he had 8 months to live. When I heard this I was disappointed, frustrated and full of pain that the one I love so much would leave me and my children all alone in this world. One faithful day my uncle called and told me about Rick Simpson cannabis oil and how it cured his 48 years old neighbor so I became very interested in this cure, my uncle and I decided to do some research about the Rick Simpson cannabis oil and I found it very interesting, so I decided to purchase the oil. I called my uncle and asked him for Rick’s direct contact, so I could discuss with him. I contacted Rick Simpson [edited] he told me what to do to purchase the oil and how to use the oil I followed his instructions dutifully and now I can proudly say that my husband is cancer free, all thanks to Rick Simpson for restoring my lost hope.

Re: “A Magical Game

So glad Angela has had a similar experience with Magic as thousands of other young players! The community and development opportunities are endless. Also lad our local stores are calling yellow journalism out for what it is. The article referenced had an obvious soap-box element that doesn't belong in the Journal, the Magic community, or even Hunboldt!

Re: “Now, About Elk River

Jerry, I think it's past time to blockade with our bodies. HRC not only won't listen to the residents but they are, in addition, the ones getting support from public agencies instead of the Elk River residents

Re: “Motivating the Truce?

Ellen Taylor does it again. What a great letter and how true it all is. On Monday eve HRC is supposed to be re-certified as a sustainable, good logging company. Meanwhile the people who live near the Elk River are facing yet more logging on the slopes over the already silted in Elk River and they will suffer, yet again, this winter with flooding that will destroy homes and lock them in or out of their homes and HRC will not cease their destructive actions. Aside from the silt that river is so poisoned by logging run off that it's unusable.

Re: “Now, About Elk River

I was seriously considering buying a house on Elk River Road, but I asked the people at work what they thought. They said: don't buy that one because of the flooding. So I bought a different House.

Re: “Now, About Elk River

Thanks for explaining what's going on. I keep on seeing full logging trucks getting onto 101 at Herrick Ave. The Headwaters Forest is back there and there is no logging inside the reserve. The Headwaters Forest is a great place to go if you have wheels. Bicycles, strollers, skateboards, wheelchairs... NO Cars. There is a long smooth paved path and everytime I go, I see people having a good time.
