Re: “Share Your Stories About The Two Days That Shook Humboldt

I was only 11, but I remember that day very clearly. When the first quake hit, myself, a friend and my little sister were alone in my living room (my mom was outside) and all of a sudden, everything just started shaking and harder than I'd ever felt before. The sound reminded me of riding in my grandparents motor home, all the dishes clacking together. Things spilled out of the cupboards and started to fall all around. We ducked and covered our heads like they taught us in school. It seemed like it went on forever. When it stopped, everything was a mess and immediately the fear grew of having to evacuate for a tsunami. Luckily, that wasn't the case. Later that night my whole family slept together in the living room and we had two other large earthquakes. I remember my head lying on the ground and feeling it shake under me as my mom screamed to get to the hall way, which was the "safe place. " I remember in the morning watching the news of the Scotia stores all on fire. It seemed like the end of the world at the time.

Re: “UPDATE: Eureka Postpones Vote on Temporary Shut Down of Visitor's Center

It would be a shame to close down right before the high season. People need to look at the conflict of interest going on right under their noses. The location of the current Chamber on Broadway is Ideal. The Concrete Anchor Outside let's people know you have arrived. Eureka!! Parking is readily available for large Motor Homes, Trailers and the like. Think about it People!!

Re: “101 Closed Until at Least Next Week; Rain Forecast to Return

Good luck getting county residents to vote yes on another transportation tax like Measure Z. We all pay for Bell Springs Road to be there when we need it, but apparently we aren't supposed to get what we pay for. How many of the "locals" on Bell Springs pay their fair share in taxes? And, that Penske moving truck, the one that got stuck and contributed to this drama? What do you think was in the back of a moving truck in SoHum in April?
County officials: Open up Bell Springs again. It's a public road, and Humboldt residents drive roads like that every day. Give us back what we paid for.

Re: “Share Your Stories About The Two Days That Shook Humboldt

I was 12 and we were getting ready to do the hike through Fern Canyon. None of us felt it, but the park ranger came out and said we would have to wait because trees could come down. When we started hearing about the quake none of us believed it. When we got home that day it was very shocking. My father worked out of the county yard in Ferndale and was gone everyday from sun up to sun down for weeks after helping with the clean up.

Re: “'Not the Norm': HSU Students, Faculty Speak out on Racism

There is a saying which says "When there is Live there is hope for the future".
This vibes has been motivating my spirit and keeping me stronger the more even when I am in pains and in tears. I am Glenna Trish from Ohio, US. My life turned upside down when I found out I was having Fibroid in me and the doctor said I have to undergo surgery in other to remove it but it's going to come up after some months, inside me my heart was burning like a fire because I don't want go for any surgery. I keep researching everyday on the internet and keep asking people around me explaining my problem to them to see if they could help me out, I did this for almost two months no result was coming out. One Faithful Morning, when I was in the Church, I met this lady who later called me after service and she told me she saw when I was busy browsing researching about how to get cure to Fibroid without surgery inside the Church, I told her yes if she could help out? She answered Yes, Inside me I was happy at last I have found a way out on how to get rid of this problem, he told me about Doctor Patrick, how he met him and how she was cured too from Fibroid that she was once a patient and his medicines has no side or bad effects. She said to me that doctor Patrick can help me out too, if only I use his herbal medicine, everything is going to be fine and is not going to come up anymore and the cure last forever. I was so happy and I took the details of the doctor, when I got home I visit his website and read more about him and after that, I contacted him, I paid for the medicine and the tracking number which he used to send the medicine through DHL Courier was given to me, after three days I received it, and I read the instructions, and started using this powerful herbal medicine, I was so surprise that after one week of taking this medicine, have already started seeing changes in my body, I continued using it according to his command for two weeks and after two weeks of using it, I called the family doctor to come and run test on me, I was so surprised when he told me that he can find anything anymore that I have been cured already and there is nothing showing up, I thought he was playing, I visited two extra hospitals and they said the same thing, I took the phone and called Doctor Patrick immediately and thank him for what he has done for me, in fact, he was sent by God to heal me and save my Marriage Life. Contact doctor today if you are having any issues with your
health on his email address HERBALMEDICALHOME@GMAIL.COM and you can read more about him on his website address His office is in USA, UK, Canada, Grenada's, West African Countries and many other countries, here is one of his worker phone number +1 302-583-2195, you can text him or call him then he will direct your call to Doctor Patrick and for those who are in West African Country and other countries you can write to one of his worker on whats-app or talk to him on call and he will direct your call to Doctor Patrick if you wish to speak to him, number is +2348113872021.

Re: “UPDATE: Eureka Postpones Vote on Temporary Shut Down of Visitor's Center

A look at the list of businesses which are members of the CoC makes it seem like the Chamber is double dipping.
Businesses pay for the benefits of being a chamber member and Eureka pays for the benefits of...informing tourists about the same things?
I think it would be very interesting to see what the people who run the chamber pay themselves.

I like to see what others think so I did a little research and found these articles:……
The last link has the interesting question:
Why should we be bringing up this old news now? Because the recent approved budget included cuts to Public Safety, yet the council still approved almost $571,500 going to the Eureka Chamber of Commerce and the Humboldt County Convention and Visitor Bureau."

I'm wondering with all the attention paid in various journals to the lack of decent hotels, the unattractive streets and the inhospitable appearance of much of Eureka why the Chamber hasn't take an active roll to get local businesses (who would benefit) involved with supporting law enforcement and other services to make Eureka a better place not just to visit, but to live.

Re: “Share Your Stories About The Two Days That Shook Humboldt

I was cleaning out the fridge and everything slide toward me. I ran outside and saw my little brother in front of a big window. Grabbed him and we watched our street roll up and down like a roller coaster.

Re: “Share Your Stories About The Two Days That Shook Humboldt

Watching the ground roll and cars dance wil be an experience I will never forget. It was difficult to stand. Besides the big three quakes it did seam like the little aftershocks would never go away.

Re: “Share Your Stories About The Two Days That Shook Humboldt

I remember that day very well, I was living up here in Crescent City and working for the U.S. Forest Service on the handline crew, Gasquet District of the Six Rivers.

We were out burning slash units on the Canthook Ridge. I was deep on east line about 400' or so running saw doing line improvement for about an hour or so when I was tapped on the shoulder and a crewman yelled "Drop your saw and up to the landing, there's a earthquake". My response, "Hell I not gonna toss my saw" and I packed it up.

So all the sup's, burning and holding crews were at the landing and accounted for, and the whole time I thought someone was jerkin' my chain, wasn't none too happy at that point. Anyway, just prior to the to the earthquake alert radioed in by Fortuna, apparently all the drip torches that were filled for the burn crews were dancing around on the landing with the sway that they felt on the landing. Me, didn't feel a thing on the end of that saw, quit a few crewmen didn't feel it.

Surely felt for all the folks affected by the two day rumble. we were waiting to be dispatched to assist with the quake incident, never happened. That's my story. Stedman...

Re: “Share Your Stories About The Two Days That Shook Humboldt

I was only four years old. I lived in Rio Dell California.. I remember watching the ground roll like waves in the ocean, the mountain side broke free and the eel river splashed over the mountain.. in the next couple days we all had to camp and canned water being flown in.. all the windows around town were broke. My neighbors house broke right in half down the middle.. the devastation was incredible.. I'm grateful to have survived..

Re: “HSU Student Fatally Stabbed Amid House Party Fist Fight

My heart is breaking, thinking of that beautiful young man who was at the wrong place, and sadly he was killed,. My Grandson is attending HSU & he is racially mixed have we sent him to the right school in the wrong location? Racism is not what we even thought about when we decided along with my precious Grandson that this could/would be an issue??? Why was a knife brought to a party??? My sincere condolences to the Parents & Family & friends of this beautiful young man. Those words seem so insignificant to this family that struggled & prayed for their son to go forward with his life. Lets pray for this Family to stay strong. My love Condolences & Prayers are with you Linda Christopoulos

Re: “Arcata Affirms Commitment to All Residents, Stops Short of 'Sanctuary City'

The United States is a land of laws and the optimal words are "Legal" and "Illegal" as it pertains to immigration. Of course the democrats would alter it to "undocumented" immigrants.

My Great Grand Parents came to the United States from Norway in 1880, and went through the immigration process, as it was back then, on Elis Island. I am familiar with the new process though the I.N.S. 2003 My wife arrived with a spousal VISA, then we went through the resident VISA. Then she work on her goal, which was her citizenship which she achieved.

I don't know how many countries there are, but I'm sure we have illegals immigrants from each of them. First off they've broken the immigration laws either sneaking in or overstaying their VISA without renewal. Now if I violated a law as minimal as jay walking, was citied and didn't want to pay the fine, and after 30 days it turned into a warrant for my arrest and I ended up doing 6 months in jail, would that be fair? Of course it would be. So what is the difference between an illegal immigrant's violation for trespassing into the United States and any American's domestic crime? Absolutely none. A criminal violation is a criminal violation.

So in reality, sanctuary cities are harboring criminals and that is against the law. Let's take San Francisco as an example. Reading the S.F. Chronical, they have over 6,000 homeless whom are American citizens, and the city is unable to deal with. But there's 4000 illegal immigrants that are getting all the freebies and shelter. Something kinda stinks don't it?? It's been documented that they're chasing M13 gangsters around town.

Be carful what you wish for, it will surely turn around and bite you....
