Re: “Homeless State University

Great article! Absolutely accurate all around from my experiences while attending college of the redwoods. I lost over 100 in rental fees before i gave up on the prop mgmt companies entirely. They inherently are bias against orphans and those without provable income.its worth mentioning, if you are lucky enough to find a place, youll quickly realize most landlords here are slumlords who do very unlawful things to tenants and there is literally no oversight.the legal services office for tenants doesnt have time to help, they are so busy. Some of the professors and the "CARE" dept at CR was also very judgmental of house less people. A worker at CARE once lectured me for having a dog and being without a house, like it was apart of my plan when I got my dog 7 years prior. I gave up on western education because it was sugh a discouraging environment.the students were lovely though and some professors were incredible at cr. But I wouldn't do it again. It is sad I am now forever in debt for trying to educate myself and getting very little out of the whole experience. It would have been cheaper and more rewarding to move to denmark.

Re: “Homeless State University

I dunno if you can plan around it. The rental agents leave the places open on Craig's list so folks keep paying that $20 application fee. The greed of PPM is unconscionable, the city needs to put their scans in check.

Re: “Homeless State University

This is the epitome of poor planning, not only by HSU, but on the part of the students. It is normal to hear numerous excuses for everything in Humboldt County, and lots of governmental whining about why they just can't do anything to improve, but to dump over 6000 "students" into a community incapable of housing them and into a county unable to provide basic services is absolutely reprehensible.
Students can vote by going elsewhere, if qualified, but in the meanwhile, call the Governor's office and complain.

Re: “G Street Squat

We here at 1625 G Street request another correction and exspect you too get your information right as this article directly and adversly affects us. In your article you state
"The Eureka Police Department has visited the old Victorian at 1635 G St., and the neighboring property, at 1625 G St., 60 times in the last six months."
There have been calls to police from 1625 G regarding 1635 G, I can not think of one call that was for our address.
Please do some proper research.
