I suggest Floyd Squires takes on these tenants until he repays the city for all his infractions and back taxes. Just saying.
I would've testified too... Smh...I wonder how many others there are. I'm glad this happened. Thanks to those who stood up. I didn't know.
Call Melinda Petersen at city hall. ShE can direct you where you can be of the most help. Thank you.
I would like to volunteer to help with this effort. How can I do that? I worked as a housing navigator in Santa Cruz for our housing first initiatives there.
Our police need to be fighting crime.
The homeless need stable houses.
The reddest state in the union (Utah) saved taxpayer's money providing modest apartments instead of emergency services and they nearly ending chronic homelessness in just a few years.
"says Sally Hewitt, senior program manager at DHHS...in a phone interview. 'Some were saying Housing First means build housing first, other groups say that tents are housing first, or that tiny houses are housing first. We're not saying that these ideas don't have value, but we want everyone to be on the same page.'
Sally, YES those all ALL housing...obviously the more normal and secure the better, as is true for any human being, so tents are not idea AND until housing can be built (give 3% availability) tents first are "Housing First" and are more conducive to the homeless healing or at least to not digressing further than being shuffled around every morning 7 DAYS A WEEK and relocated AGAIN in two weeks; as if being homeless wasn't hard enough as it is. I dare any housed person to try it for a few months, especially those over 40, as many homeless are. Stability for homeless is better for the community in general as it reduces the often exhausted, demoralized, drifting people and pets that occurs all day long in old town, parks, library etc.
Tiny homes are far better than tents and have had great success already all across the country. So easy there have been high school students building the tiny homes for homeless. Andrew Heben, a city planner who as a student lived in "Camps" to understand better how people survived and what was needed, has spoken twice now in Eureka. A place to start for those adrift about this solution: http://www.squareonevillages.org. AHHA (Affordable Humboldt Housing Alternatives) has been working tirelessly towards a local tiny house village for years, ahead of the curve of Focus Strategies yet concurrent with their findings and directives. This link from 2014:
The quality and quantity of lives lost due to lack of mental health care and housing in particular is staggering and most never make it to the news, dead or alive. The community suffers too...just go to the library or any trail or green space...oh and it is really not great for children to see we leave people to lay in the streets. Just saw an article about a Sheriff in TX who committed suicide due to facing eviction/foreclosure.
Your source has done you a disservice. The promoters of assisted suicide have worn out their thesaurus attempting to imply that it is legal in Montana. Assisted suicide is a lhomicide in Montana. Our MT Supreme Court did ruled that if a doctor is charged with a homicide they might have a potential defense based on consent. The MT Supreme Court acknowledged it is a homicide in the ruling.
The Court did not address civil liabilities and they vacated the lower court’s claim that it was a constitutional right. Unlike Oregon no one in Montana has immunity from civil or criminal prosecution and investigations are not prohibited like Oregon. Does that sounood legal to you?
Perhaps the promoters are frustrated that even though they were the largest lobbying spender in Montana their Oregon model legalizing assisted suicide bills have been rejected in Montana in 2011, 2013 and 2015.
Your source has done the public a disservice. Their ordinary bait and switch campaign is demonstrated by their selling "must self-administer" then they do not provide in their legislation for an ordinary witness of the "self-administration". This omission eviscerates the flaunted safeguards putting the entire population at risk of exploitation by heirs, the medical-governmental-complex and organ/tissue traffickers.

By all and any means, it's my decision.
Perhaps I will want to make such a decision without all the damn Catholics trying to ram their fantasy beliefs down everyone's throat.
Preventing a woman from having her tubes tied? Are you serious?
Another prime example of how horrible and invasive religion is often practiced.
There is no god. Get use to it.
Something is very, very wrong in McKinleyville! I grew up there. In the past several years, the number of schoolmates, their family members, and children with dire health concerns and/or mortality rates have shot sky high! There have been far too many at or near 40 years of age who have succumbed from cancers, organ failure, and brain disorders. It's not just people who are life-long residents, either. Several have lived more of their lives outside of the town. Still, these numbers should not be ignored!
