Re: “Water Boys

As a surf teacher and basic kayak instructor who has worked with local kids since 2007 here in Humboldt, I have witnessed many of our youth catch the stoke of what is possible on our local waterways, but what I know of these two chargers is that they have the type of resilience and persistence that will help them succeed at an elite level in whatever interests they pursue. It takes a special love of the ocean to charge out as these guys do on days when most are content to cozy up in a warm place far from the bone-chilling, tumultuous, relentless northern waves.

Re: “Water Boys

As any self employed person knows, Nate being one of them, you can't qualify for unemployment or disability. He wears a safety glove and is responsible for his own injuries. He has no employees yet.

Re: “Water Boys

What an awesome story. Don't let the state labor people know though. 12 and 14 yr olds working? Using knives? Not allowed!! Well, 14 yr olds can work, but not on fishing boats or with knives or machinery. I hope the bureaucrats leave these boys alone and let them grow up and excel.

Re: “Cash, Plastic or Bitcoin?

Barry: Before you pronounce bitcoin as secure, you might want to Google "bitcoin theft."

Like any predator/prey interaction it's always a a pendulum swing. And one should consider what legal mechanisms are available to help the victim in case of loss.

Re: “A Little Lower Than the Angels?

"Charles Darwin showed how the relentless thrust of evolution further dilutes our previously self-glorified status."

"...according to some contemporary physicists who propose that even our universe isn't special! "Universe" used to be interpreted literally: "that which is combined into one." Now speculation runs rife with talk of "multiverses." Whatever process created our universe..."

Darwin did not know about the digital code of DNA in the 1800s and the multiverse is untestable. It's all part of our final exam. We can believe what we WANT to believe, and what we WANT to believe tells God who we are.

Re: “Foraging

Great article that just touches on the wild edibles that we have surrounding us in Humboldt. I was wondering if there were anyone locally who was deemed an "expert" who would be willing to take people out to do some foraging or some type of class or seminar locally that is available to take?

Re: “Wild Wood

Carving without professional instruction is not a smart idea. Just learning how to sharpen tools takes weeks. Not a smart idea to follow these instructions. Call 444-2717 and The Eureka Woodworking Association will help you out and get a professional to give you a start.

Re: “Wild Wood

The new Eureka Woodworking Association has free wood for members, classes on woodworking specializing in reclaimed wood, and more. Would have been great to be in your article. We are a branch of the American Woodturning Association and are just about to file for our 501 C. We have a work shop space for meetings and have had packed meetings the last two months. Please call 444-2717 for information. https://www.facebook.com/Eureka-Woodworkin…
