Re: “Officers and Suspect in Arcata Shooting Identified, Updated with Photos

I went to school with Josh at Canyon Crest Academy and lived with him in the Greater Los Angeles area. I don't know anything about this PD or this area but I do know to things about Josh.

1) He was probably drunk/high


2) There is no way in hell that Josh lunged at the police officers. He has never,ever been a violent guy. He was a spiritual free hippy type- geez he surfed most of the week.

He may have not been taking orders but that doesn't mean he should have been shot four times. Police are too trigger happy.

Re: “UPDATED: Humboldt Dog Tests Positive for Rabies

This was our dog. He was fully vaccinated. He was a loving pet for our family and two young daughters. This has been beyond deviating to say the least. He will be missed emensly.

Re: “Tribes Threaten Lawsuit Over Klamath Flows

There is a problem with the Karuk Tribe's press release: it states that "According to fisheries biologists, the solution to the (fish disease) problem is removal of the dams and retirement of the hatchery – a process slated to begin in 2020 according to the Klamath Hydroelectric Settlement Agreement."

Except that the KHSA does not and never has included "retirement of the hatchery". Instead it states that the hatchery will be transferred to Cal Fish & Wildlife, that PacifiCorp will pay for 8 years of operation after power generation from the dams ends, and that after 8 years parties will confer about how to pay for hatchery operations thereafter.

So the KT's press release appears to be disingenuous; a classic Tucker move!

Please do your journalistic duty by questioning the KT's statement and reporting their reply to your readers.

Re: “Attorneys: Fortuna Mom Standing by to Surrender in Fatal Hit and Run Case

Two young people are dead including her own daughter, she flees the scene and she's "negotiating" her surrender? And already has an attorney? Give me break.
