Re: “Three Skilled Nursing Facilities May Close

If the U.S. will not ensure we have adequate numbers of health care professionals, driving up costs and causing deadly shortages, we should stop protecting the industry and invite certified professionals from other nations eager to come.

It's time to put an end to bankrupting individuals and families needing basic healthcare.

Re: “An Apology to Our Readers

The content of the paper, be it editorial or advertising, is ultimately our responsibility. We regret running the image at all and apologize for any hurt or offense it may have caused. The North Coast Journal takes sexual assault very seriously, as we hope our past and continuing coverage shows, and the same goes for copyright law.

Really ? I reported sexual assault of my daughter to you in 2006 and you DID not even interview me

Re: “UPDATED: Bay Billboards No More

Hopefully the agreement didn't include payments, since most all of the billboards were placed illegally and without permission. Caltrans, the agency responsible for managing placement of the billboards, should have taken care of this long ago. It took the Coastal Commission to hold their feet to the fire and deal with them.

Re: “3rd UPDATE: Suspect Killed in McKinleyville Standoff

Looks more like an invading army to me.
At last, the boys got to play with their toys.
The Constitution states that we shall not have a standing army.
Too late.
The cops in this country have been eager to accept all the left over war toys from the Feds. Out of control while folks just la de da through life.

Yes, I understand the cops were dealing with a allegedly armed crazy man but an armored car? Really?
Just how close did they think they could get to any apartment? I do see an advantage for the cops to seek shelter behind the vehicle. I know I would.
Would cops just drive that almost tank directly into structures? You betcha. If they felt they had a need it would be gang busters in the streets of Humboldt County.

Cops have a horrible, tense, danger filled job. But, they chose it.
.....and, cops should be drug tested especially for steroids.

Re: “Garberville Man Drowns in South Jetty Boating Accident

Bruce Adams went into the water to pull the 4 men out. He risked his own life in dangerous conditions. All men were out and Bruce initiated CPR before the EMTs finally showed up at the scene. Coast Guard were late to the party.

Re: “Life-Saving Librarian, Narcan Prevent Overdose Death

I was actually in the library and saw this taking place. It kind of pisses me off that they refer to the man who shakes him as a heroin user. I talked with the guy who has 3 years drug free sobriety. Give credit where credit is due.

Re: “Medical Marijuana Tax Bill Goes Up in Smoke

good! why arent those asshats spending our money (their salaries and pensions paid for by us) demanding the federal government decriminalize one of the most, if not THEE most amazing medicinal plants in the known universe, instead of demanding even more profiteering from a black market? that goes for our local representatives as well. they are imposing a tax unlike any other, IN ADDITION to all other commercial taxes, based SOLEY on the illegality of an easy to grow plant. our state and local representatives are selling everybody out to the almighty dollar. free the weed, once and for all!

Re: “Ticket to Ride: Veteran Helps to Bring About Bus Pass Program

We are "The U.S. of Extortion". Alone in the industrialized world.

Need a doctor? Lose your house and business and die anyway. Who cares if you're a vet?

Need a mediocre "public" education? Enter a lifetime of debt.

Need to get to the store or the doctor? Pay $5 round trip for a "public" bus.

Need a house but can't pay the exorbitant rents in U.S. cities rigged against affordable housing? Join the millions of other folks living on the streets.

Need affordable food? Grow your own. Crop prices are falling for a decade but over half of U.S. food processing is controlled by 4 companies fixing prices.

Need affordable airfare? There are only 4 companies raising prices while fuel costs are at an all-time low.

Need affordable cable? Many cities have one or two competitors charging 3-times more than in Europe.

Need to put your needs on a credit card? $2 trillion in outstanding credit card debt will not be bailed out like the banks. It was your government that deregulated usurious interest rates that no longer qualify for bankruptcy relief.

Need a presidential candidate that doesn't use extortion by telling you to fear the other candidate? Join the 80% of potential U.S. voters that abstained in the 2016 presidential primaries.

Need to file a grievance against your government? You must send it to a private arbitration company first.

Re: “Woman Kidnapped From Gas Station in Front of Daughters, Says EPD

Great Article. Unfortunately, I found this article too late - I already found the answer on another service. I am sure at least once in your life you had to fill out a form. I use a simple service for forms filling. It definitely makes my life easier!

Re: “Reggae Headliner Re-stokes Murder Music Outcry

Re: “Reggae Headliner Re-stokes Murder Music Outcry

I have not gotten a response from the Mateel Community Center nor Reggae on the River. This is the message I left with them. Please pressure them to use the profits to fund queer spaces.

Hi Loves,

Please provide a statement on having Sizzla perform. He seems in direct opposition to the Mateel Community Center's mission and vision statement, and I know that this headliner has reverberated through the queer community of Humboldt. I know it is too late to change the line up, and probably expensive to break a contract with Sizzla. I would ask of you to consider donating some of the profits from Reggae on the River to queer non-profits such as The RAVEN project to help ameliorate the hate that Sizzla brings to our community.

Re: “UPDATE: Eureka to Discuss Police Video Case Tonight, has Already Spent Thousands on Appeal

It's not their money, most people don't vote, and only 20% of U.S. households subscribe to a community newspaper.

Worse yet, for the truth to be believed it must be repeated.

By the time that video is released they will claim it's "old news", a few reforms may have been enacted, they were defending Eureka's finest, and most importantly, they "heroically" undermined attempts by another victim to hold them accountable.
