Re: “Lazio's Last Stand

Just came across this article about Lazio's. I fished off the Lazio cannery loading dock when I was a munchkin, 10, 11 years old. Now it's 2016, I'm 62 and living up here in Crescent City.
Yeah, Let's see, "Duce St." the Card Room, Golden Horn, Silver Dollar Club, Vince's Log Cabin. Myself and a few of my buddies Used to ride our bikes from Harris and California streets with our fishing poles down to Lazio's and kill a couple hours fishing off the docks. Those were the days, nothing like today.

Re: “Queasy Eats

I love it! Excellent article. Thanks for the sharing, I also found a useful service for forms filling. Maybe you would be interested in an online service with a ton of Form templates (tax, real estate, legal, business, insurance forms, etc..) I used it to fill out

Re: “Piecemeal Transparency

Supporting 3 bills that limit public access while claiming they increase public access used to be the standard republican M.O.

"Democrats in name only" are the reason the democratic party has hemorrhaged members and 80% didn't vote in the 2016 primary.

Would officers be more careful discharging lethal weapons if they know the public is watching?

Would there still be executions if they were televised?

No one in the U.S. in the 19th century would have tolerated nor imagined that, one day, being drunk and violent in public justified being shot-on-sight.

Here's how a violent man with a machete was handled in the UK:…

Re: “The Curious Case of Parcel 106-101-054

I have seen the future for the Emerald Triangle.
It ain't pretty.

Corporations and other rich cretins have and are driving prices sky high.
This noted speculator is a prime example of greed making folks do stupid things.
Sadly, we regular residents will pay the many ways.

It may take a bit longer but we will also see even more obscene increased housing prices.

No longer will anyone just wanting a small piece of the countryside ever be able to make any dream come true.

No longer will anyone be able to buy their 'starter' home. Probably already can't afford one as prices are currently excessively high.

The only folks looking forward to the oncoming green rush are realtors. We know how soulless most of them are. They don't give a damn about anything but their fees and commissions.

We may have won the battle but we have lost the war....and I ain't talking about the completely worthless 'War On Drugs'.

It's only gonna get worse.
Count on it.

Re: “Slow Roll

I disagree with the paving of the Arcata Marsh trails. There are other materials that can be used on trails that are natural to the area and usable by those who use a chair, walkers and other legal mobility devices. Part of the concern and bout the Trails in the marsh is the constant need for maintenance and possible new look at how the trails are laid out, but paving them would not be the thing to do.

Clam beach, according to the State Park Service has available chairs with the large wheels to travel on the beach - I have never used one because of the difficultly of transferring, but I would check in with the park service first and see what they got.

It would be nice to establish a hard surface to travel to the beach and this is a reachable goal, but it is costly and I would want to know it would be something that is not destroyed.

Friends of the Dunes are building a trail - I was old it would be accessible, but I have heard this before. I forwarded information on what is needed to be accessible and hope the advice is taken. Be nice to have access to the facility

Re: “Fair Pay

It is irresponsible of Eureka and Humboldt County leadership to allow Eureka to suffer the underfunded services, infrastructure, and skewed statistics caused by their failure to "carry the ball" in getting Eureka's border communities incorporated.

It's the only way Eureka will get even one of its officers to live in the city they police.

How many millions of dollars in state and federal funds is Eureka losing each year because only 1/3 of its actual population is being reported? Eureka loses millions so that the rich can escape a few fees building subdivisions just "outside" city limits.

This would have been a good opportunity to report the costs of lawsuits against Eureka that resulted from excessive force by under-trained, overworked officers required to respond to the PTSD of homelessness, drug abuse, child abuse and mental illness.

Report the actual population and Eureka will have full state and federal funding for its schools, infrastructure, and an appropriate police force without their chief having to "entice" recruits by advertise the excessive number of calls each officer receives that is the result of under-staffing.

Re: “Trimmigration Sting

I miss the good old days of uncensored journalistic satire when newspaper cartoonists would compete to portray the idiotic actions taken by public officials like Eureka's police chief.

Picture one of our numerous local victims of Humboldt County's worst statewide rates of child abuse, domestic violence, and property crime crying-out for the police while their life is being violently changed forever.....

...and the nearest cop, their chief, and a few high paid lackeys were busy dicking around on the web.

Re: “Slow Roll

Thanks for the article and all your work that you do to help disabled. We have used the Hammond Trail, Hikshari Trail, Board Walk in Eureka, and the Headwaters trail. All very nice and we are happy to have them. Wish the Board walk and the Adorni trail were attached it would make a longer walk. We have used the Arcata Marsh main trail, but it is very bumpy and hard on his wheelchair and his bottom. Can't use the beach chair because I'm afraid the rocks will pop the tires. I think Arcata should pave some of those trails for the disabled. I'm surprised they haven't.

Re: “Slow Roll

My husband is in a wheel chair and we have had such difficulty visiting the beaches he loves and use to take his students to. He was a Marine Biology teacher. We discovered a beach wheel chair on Craig's list which we purchased, but are now finding it difficult to get access to the beach with that. He cannot use a motorized chair and must be pushed by his aide.So far we discovered Clam beach north parking lot is easy to get him too. We also used King Salmon beach, but the entrance is too small for a wheel chair so we had to lift him from one chair thru the entrance and put him in the beach chair. Then it was a breeze to the beach, but that entrance needs to be widened. Samoa beach is too steep to push him up and down so that's out. Big Lagoon might work too but we haven't tried it yet. Do you have other suggestions?

Re: “Liability and Losses

The County can't keep track of questionable parcel splits? Isn't that part of their job? HumCPR's lawsuit was nothing but frivolous. I can't believe the judge actually let this go to trial, let alone awarded HumCPR anything. HumCPR is a bunch of right-wing thugs who believe in emasculating government. Their lawsuits are designed to bankrupt government and render them ineffective. It is a common right-wing ploy. I would venture to guess that Marilyn Miles is a member of HumCPR. Either way, she will never get my vote again. As a judge, she should be part of the solution. In this case, she is part of the problem.

Re: “Trimmigration Sting

Well, Garth Jones,now that you have let everyone know that you are sexist, by stereotyping and looking down on women, what else would you like to reveal about yourself?...perhaps a racist core? Homophobia?...hatred of older people?...You want to present yourself as being an erudite, superior, intellectual, potential leader; you have blown it.

Re: “Trimmigration Sting

Lmao at the comments here...

You people are either clueless or otherwise involved in the weed industry in some way.

Aside from that note...ONLY HIRE LOCALS TO TRIM YOUR WEED, DOUCHEBAGS! There are too many unemployed people here as it is, we don't need transients and criminals coming from down south and taking our trim jobs.

Maybe we should build a wall. We will get Orange County to pay for it.

Re: “Trimmigration Sting

If people do come here looking for work it better be in the illicit billion-dollar pot industry. no other billion dollar industries blowing up and attracting people from all over the word around here. Sounds like someone needs to step their billion dollar industry game up ( failed local leadership). Weed has been the economic back bone of the north coast ever cents the last industries based on our areas natural resources where pushed out with nothing to replace it. (failed local leadership)? weed the people created our own grassroots, free market, capitalist billion dollar industry without you and despite your resistance (failed to stop us local leadership) Now these local leaders want to jump in front of the pot parade and pretend that they are leading it. In the words of Ludacris "Move _____ get out the way".
Why are homeless people any where? mostly same reason, looking for work didn't work out ,got stuck. like LA or San fran or New York ect.
Don't try to pin this on pot. its called people looking for work where jobs are being created.
Hey local leadership! you should try it sometime. There has been a huge free market, capitalist experiment going on all around you for decades. You know, the illicit billion dollar industry one.
Sadly some people move here and don't make it for many diff reasons and that sounded like a good opportunity to catch them in a craigslist sting operation just to give them a stern warning. ummm fail? big whoop... dork
For the people that do make'er welcome.
Just for fun... What if all the local people that grow weed for a living stopped and started looking for "real" jobs? what would you do then? lead us ... oh Brother
