Great, Chris! Now the rest of you young folks replace that crazy City Council!
Great illustration of a problem that the free market just can't solve. This hasn't changed in a long time. The main reason they built HSU (then Humboldt Normal School) a hundred years ago was because it was incredibly impractical to get to/from Humboldt County. Unless you have a car, it's still a PITA.
This has made my day. I dare hope again. Thank you Chris!
You will have my vote Chris!
Yours is largely a thankless job, but thank you for changing this headline in your print edition. It is appreciated.
This is why I refer to "transportation-starved" Humboldt in my blog. Nice job, really.
If I still smoked pot and drank beer I'd be all over that place.
"English-only" types are invariably both unskilled at English and monolingual.
@Mike Buettner: Albin will be up for reelection next year. If reelected twice he could potentially serve for nine years. On the other hand, he could lose next year and wind up serving just a single year.
Eureka citizens and their "community media" should share outrage that two, out of five, Eureka city council seats are selected by a mayor. Where's the journalists that used to thrive on ironies like a mayor that invites a lawsuit over an illegal "Mayor's Prayer Breakfast" claiming that elections are "too expensive"?
Good work Ryan...now that it's over, can we put this story on the front page where it belongs?
Free headline suggestions:
"Eureka's Corrupt Politics, There They Go Again"
"Eureka's 4 to 1 legacy"
"Representative Government Too costly, God Priceless"
"Will Albin Join The Other Republicans On The County Democratic Club?"
"You Thought It Was A Non-Partisan Office?"
"Mayor's 2008 'No-Agenda' Campaign Needs A Face-Lift"
"Wingnuts Are Only On The Left"
"Politics Is A License To Lie"
"All We Need To Know Is His Real Name"
Oh, Steve... I wish your spirit a peaceful journey. Great keyboardist and a generous man. Father and long-time Arcata resident. Old friend. I'm so sad that this happened.
13. Respect proper punctuation and the use of capital letters!
How long is his term?
I am disappointed but not at all surprised. Dangit!
not sure how guy died but I CANNOT believe these 3 killed someone. they LOVE protecting life, standing up for right and rights. time to investigate past looks and circumstantial evidence. I want facts, I want justice not just easy targets.
There's no need to "imagine" anything!
The European Union (Germany) and even Brazil, are decades ahead of us in developing the economic growth potential in alternative, clean industries, energies, planned development, and fair taxes on wealth. Even the U.S. military is heavily engaged in solar energy research, installations, and alternatives to toxic materials.
It's crony capitalism that keeps us invested in outdated technologies. Instead of importing biodegradable alternatives to plastics, we could be growing soy beans right here in Humboldt County, as well as, processing them into non-toxic products for national distribution.
There was never a need to ban plastic bags when we have every imperative to prosper with modern and cleaner technologies.
Was this near State Route 299?
The shark on the Baykeeper logo really says it all. Can you image what Humboldt County would be like if all our community environmental conflicts were required by law to be resolved by mediation instead of lawsuits? Can you imagine how many supposed "eco" jobs would vanish overnight? No EPIC, No Baykeeper, and all our anchor businesses still in operation complying with sustainable environmental regulations. You want social war-you go to the social war-mongers: this yellow journal is the place to start. Then head on over to HCDCC, formerly representing LABOR in Humboldt County but now representing the Green Party and our enviro elitists who have theirs and don't care about anyone else's economic struggles.
Industry has run roughshod over this community forever...they took what they wanted, sent the profits out of state, and left us with the dioxins, PCB's, heavy metals and a GI cancer rate near the highest in CA. They passed their political baton to the developers, now it's their turn to maximize profits by making damn sure our chronic deficits in affordable housing continue. When the big earthquake hits half our rural population will have nowhere to live. Enjoy your Crab.
My check is on its way BK!
