I think its only fair.Even if Cal Electro can't match the big boys with its resume of past work,we're not building a space shuttle here. It's replacing an existing water system to a small community. I've been in building for 30yrs. plus in the county, and it's always been a dilemma to me that; trying to land a project, that might be a bit out of the scope of my past work some how disqualifies me for the work as a company, where do you think the experience comes from ?I could go on and on but I hope you get my point. I just hope Mercer Fraiser quits wasting these limited funds
Sounds like Mercer Fraiser was successful at bullying their way into a job in Crescent City, playing on the fear of council members. It worked once, so they're likely going to try again... and again... and again. Why would any Humboldt or Del Norte resident be surprised? The sad thing is the good attorney is earning money the district needs to spend elsewhere. Bummer...
Mercer-fraudster sounds like a big bully, and a sore loser. Instead of spending money on an attorney, hire a new estimator so you can be more competitive. What a waste.
I hope some read the truth here and tell others what happened.Our church had truely gone wrong and even backed killing innocent people. Even that Jim Jones and the Giana cult genocide got its start here. My pastor and I baptised Jose Montt. He killed so many innocent people for Satan and Pat Robertson, and slandered the innocent people. Who's taking Pat Robertson to court for this? How about Bush? The CIA? I ask all to pray that the truth shuts down the evil they created. Is Jim Dirkin reeling in agony in hell, for this great betrayal. I knew he still had a indifferents towards hippies,saved or not. And I knew him enough to know that. My dad was also a buddy of his in the real estate market. Read on the other bloggs to get the rest. Montt poisoned me too!
We started our Old Town business in early 1990's, in a 1920's building. It was a different use needing to be remodeled. The city of Eureka provided extensive ADA info listing the upgrades required costing about $1,000 that we did ourselves. We have a disabled friend that wrote us a letter of satisfaction after we finished work. We remembered Mr. Singleton's visits after we opened.
Not one public or private organization or business in Humboldt County has any excuse not to upgrade their facility, ESPECIALLY, knowing about Mr. Singleton!
How is it that the media takes business', government and the Chamber's word for the unfairness, yet, they are never asked to open their books to public scrutiny to actually prove it?
I appreciate Rose's courage in being interviewed for this topic. I can only imagine how painful it must be to have to be reminded constantly that you are a second class citizen or that educated people get to have the final say in who YOU are as a person. What a crazy world we live in. I think this was a beautiful act of defiance. Keep on keeping on Ms. Rose and thank you!
Sounds like Hal didn't really read the article... sounds like all he'll get is what's already in his head. Why bother reading if you're not going to try and actually understand the issue or see things from another perspective at all?
It's made clear in the article that DL 329 is a form that she CAN'T fill out... it demands she get an additional Dr's exam, and for a DR. to fill it out... that they don't take her existing legal work as enough, bur are requiring additional physical verification of her gender... in excess of what most others have to provide... is demeaning, emotionally and physically burdensome, etc.
When was the last time Hal had to get an intimate physical exam to get their driver's license?
Wonderful story! I'm disappointed that I cannot view the slideshows on my Mac. (Just a black screen. ???)
Thank you, Heidi, for your thoughtful writing. Thank you, Jack, for your wisdom and sense of humor in regards to local politics and thank you for saving the lens for Ferndale. Awesome!!!
How dreadful to be entering your 70's and still require a doctor to determine a sex already identified by all your other documents and other states!
Where's all those republicans demanding that inefficient, wasteful government bureaucracies should be drowned in a bathtub?
A well done article about a fine man and great artist!! Thank you, Pete Hilton
All I got from this article was that a woman who had all the proper documentation refused to fill out a form. "the folks at the Eureka DMV, who she said seemed happy to accept her changed name but said they wouldn't list her as female without a completed form DL 329"
and "Rose said she's provided all this documentation — the court order, a statement from her surgeon, her old New Mexico driver's license and her MediCare card"
so rather than filling out the form, she
"In one hand, Rose clutches DMV form DL 329, as her other hand fumbles with a lighter, trying to get it to ignite"
no mention of what a form 329 is.
I hate the DMV too, but I want to drive. So I deal with their bullshit and move on with my life.
I have lived in other states, I have never once expected them to honor my CA documents without filling out their paperwork. NY, TX, and KY to name a few.
Great job, Heidi! Thank you,
Humboldt Mades so-called "environmentally conscious" requirement for products is, it seems to me, loose as a goose since they are pushers for Green Diamond.
I am forever grateful to Lyal for teaching my husband to be the man he is. He took him in and showed him a life ful of hard work and experience. He is a giant of a man with a giant heart. Thanks Lyal
Interesting "glitch" NCJ!
I read that the Harbor Commission is looking for tenants on the old pulp mill sight it bought for $1.
When we mention "media" I get think we need to mention the outsized influence of LoCO's "if it bleeds it leads" reporting.
Our Heartlands Project, now the Lifeline Inter-Tribal Lottery Project, is coming along now and once it get its funding it will be bringing in massive funding if Humboldt County is receptive this time to economic development of Humboldt Bay. Massive funding could have occurred in 2005 as our Heartlands Project found deep pocket potential in Chinese investment bankers. But they were scared away by the environmental protestors. An indicator of attitude will be seen if NCJ reverses its prejudice against Native American economic development when it's being organized by yours truly. Judy doesn't want you to know about what I do and in the past has refused to report anything about the Bear River Heartlands Project.
You are neglecting one of the perplexing realities of "civilization".
Increasing numbers of code violations are constantly being added within every category of potential offenses.
"Half the crimes are reported". (Half the "crimes" shouldn't be on the books). How many Americans were sentenced to 10 years for smoking pot decade after decade?
"Whoever counts the votes determines the outcome", (apparently, the same is true for crime statistics).
We need independent auditors in every field of government to get busy!
