Re: “Last Night at Roy's

This is such a great story. I was born and raised in Eureka. I'm very familiar with old town. Growing up in the 70s and 80s, my family didn't visit 1st or 2nd st often. We did shop at Daly's on 5th street though. And woolsworths was fun. What about bonanza 88. The old Eureka Theatre was great. Loved the drive inn on 101 when opened. We had really great days in the past. I would love to have been raised during the happening times at Roys. I remember going to Roys in 1991 on a prom date. It was a place reserved for special occasions. Always great food. I appreciate the history shared here. The negative commenter above should remove his comment since not appropriate and out of line. In the future should you have an issue, please fill out a comment card and not blast it on the owner's farewell. Please go back to your rock and troll somewhere else. Best of wishes to the families!!!

Re: “Fair Fight

Yea most entities do not reveal there fleecing of tax dollars. They especially dont want to let the tax payers of this county knowing anything about accountability. It gets real interesting when you see a city or county cry that there is no funding for roads. the county owes millions on cal pers retirement system with making minimal payments each month. Anymore they would rather watch the road deteriorate until a good storm comes along and declare emergency funding disaster rather than maintain the roads.. When the whole chicken pen is full of foxes there is no honor among thieves. Government gets more expensive to run every year while getting better benefits and there output is less, like right down to cal trans level ( shovel in hand bs' n all day). Its easy for them to pencilwhip the financial reports to match what looks good to them. The auditing is just as bogus , and now with browns shred document law which his family has trademark patent rights in (just kidding) . Sometimes it's best not to know and or get involved and tell your elected leaders we demand accountability!

Re: “Last Night at Roy's

How dare you write such a disparaging review if a restaurant opened in 1919 by the Fanucchis, who have served up fine Italian cuisine since that time. Over 3 generations of my family have enjoyed dining at Roy's Club, and i remember how exciting it was when my Grandparents took us there the first time. Service was always wonderful, along with a number of excellent chefs manning the kitchen.

I don't know where you are from, but we were born and raised here in Eureka. We always enjoyed the different courses that arrived before dinner, and the entrees that followed, the great service and hospitality, the ambiance ... and left full, happy, looking forward to the next time we'd return

Hopefully Roy's Club will be designated as a Historical Landmark, maintained s such, and reopened soon.

So very sorry this restaurant is closing for now. Many thanks to Evo & Catherine for keeping it open for so long. Congratulations on a happy retirement !!!

Re: “Last Night at Roy's

How dare you insult a fine restaurant established in 1919 by the Fanucchis and where at least 3 generations of my family have enjoyed dining all our lives. My Grandparents took us there for special occasions and we always looked forward to the delicious food that arrived steaming hot from the kitchen, and where a number of fine chefs cooked an array of wonderful Italian dishes.

The restaurant itself should be designated as a historical building, kept up to that standard, and hopefully re-opened soon.

Perhaps you are not from this area; however, my family was born and raised here in Eureka. Every time we went to Roys was a special occasion! We left full, happy, and could hardly wait until the next time we'd return. So sorry Evo & Catherine, you're closing. Congratulations on a very happy retirement!!!

Re: “Last Night at Roy's

For as long as I've live in Humboldt County the food served at this establishment has been unrecognizable to an Italian palate. Poorly cooked seafood risotto covered in cheep domestic Parmesan cheese and over cooked pasta, my point to those journalists covering the local food scene it that they do an establishment no favors when they cover for mediocre food.

Re: “Passive Resistance

This is the first time I have ever seen anyone, let alone a public representative, call a Human Rights Resolution "negative and mean".

Shame on Brady, and the Mayor.

Re: “Passive Resistance

im with brady in this one. indefinite amounts of time and money are wasted on politically correct feel goods that have nothing whatsoever to with the increasingly critical concerns of everybody, bigot or not.

Re: “Passive Resistance

Not sure how making a statement supporting human rights, respect, and decency is fluff or merely feel-good or how it detracts or prevents in any way from taking care of business of the city. Business is people. The city is people. We state that we support, protect, and help people. How is that a bad thing, exactly?

Re: “Under the Color of Authority

"Mills has no...dog in the fight". Quite right. Mills was hired by a conservative city council and promptly attended prayer meetings. A liberal city council is elected and he organizes Martin Luther King marches no longer attending conservative prayer meetings. Mills is a political appointee, who serves at the pleasure of the city manager and council. He will do their bidding saying whatever is in the city's perceived current interests. The "Old Guard" instigators of Sergeant Laird's questionable and unprecedented persecution were also apparently quickly "retired". The only victims here appear to be the Sergeant and the taxpayer.

Re: “Passive Resistance

So where do you draw the line ? If something terrible is going in SoHum, Mendicino, or Trinity,..just ignore it ? If something happens just outside of the Eureka. City limits...it's not something we need to deal with ? Let's concentrate on making Eureka great again, and oh yeah, let's practice isolationsm.

Re: “Passive Resistance

Thank You Kim Bergel for doing the right thing..I also would know why the mayor isn't behind this resolution...the biggest protest in Eureka history just happened and we want to know if our city is with women or not!

Re: “Passive Resistance

This resolution had nothing to do with human rights and everything to do with national partisan politics.

Bergel copied the San Francisco City Council's resolution to draw up a thinly veiled attack on Pres Trump. I am no fan of Trump but the city council needs to concentrate on Eureka's many problems and get its nose out of national politics.

Re: “Under the Color of Authority

It would be nice if this kid got half of this criminal cop's PERs for the rest of his life. This behavior won't stop til the cost comes out of the cops's own pocket. These awards need to come from the retirement fund. I hope the kid gets a good lawyer and sue in federal court.

Re: “Passive Resistance

" Brady considers the current council to be an "activist sort of council" that is letting down small businesses and is more concerned with political correctness than economic growth."

And Brady is right. The council needs to deal with the business of running a city. Not coming up with feel- good resolutions.

I will not "work together" to criminalize abortion or restrict health care for women.
I will not "work together" to increase the number of nations that have nuclear weapons.
I will not "work together" to put even more "big money" into politics.

And racism.

I will not "work together" to find ways for the billionaires to cheat the system.
I will not "work together" to implement a hiring freeze at government agencies.
I will not "work together" to suppress reporters' right to ask questions the administrations does not like.
I will not "work together" to bully any country, big or small.
I will not "work together" to craft a message diminishing women and young adults.
I will not support anyone that thinks its OK to put a pipeline to transport oil on Sacred Ground for Native Americans. And, it would run under the Missouri River, which provides drinking water for millions of people. An accident waiting to happen.
This is my line, and I am drawing it.
I will stand for honesty, love, and respect for all living beings.
