Re: “That Dam Breitbart Story

In reading Mr. Greensons condescending opinion piece reply to That Dam Breitbart Story, I am heartened that Breitbart readers may be excused by Mr. Greenson for daring to agree with something other than Mr. Greenson's paid-for-print activism. My question is, who will forgive Mr. Greenson?
It sadly seems that unaccountable self-assured intellectual arrogance and assumptive ignorance all too often walk hand in hand.
We are 4 generations on and in the Klamath River at the focal point of dams impact rhetoric, before and after Iron Gate, though apparently not encompassing the profound knowledge of Mr. Greenson writing 180 miles downstream. Of course, we must also apparently defer the resident majority regionally affected experience, documentation, and current studies to the paid-for-agenda predefined position for which Mr. Tucker was imported to promote.
Iron Gate releases average approximately 12% of the volume at the estuary, and the flood conditions destructive to the upper river that Mr. Greenson so easily dismisses often occur with levels comprising less than 3-10% of those typical to same time estuary non-destructive winter flows. We experienced the almost yearly inundation, riparian erosion, sedimentation, environmental degradation, and regional losses that occurred prior to the needed added capacity which Upper Klamath Lake and Copco alone were unable to quell. Those pundits regurgitating agenda constructed bullet points for the uninformed, such as no flood protection, should consider reading the engineering completed years ago supporting regional reality by describing a debris capturing minimum 9 hour attenuation period provided by those reservoirs during high flow events. Though he may be forgiven for stating Upper Klamath Lake averaging less than 8 feet in depth as a deep reservoir, Mr. Greensons solution of increased Upper Klamath Lake capacity to compensate for loss fails to consider the lack of Agreement assured funding or even a practical ability to do so, or the often far greater flood contributions added to the canyon between Link and Iron Gate. None of the profound regularly experienced damages to our region have occurred in the years since Iron Gate, a large part of why it WAS and is still supported by locals.

Virtually EVERY original profiting special interest assured bullet point fabricated in the creation of secret and exclusionary dams removal imposition Agreements has been subsequently shown by experiment and currently monitored data to be completely unsupported and defective in premise. However, NONE of that public rhetoric or orchestrating biological opinions are being allowed alteration until AFTER the hydroelectric/water storage/hatchery facilities are slated for destruction to secure a rewilding agenda. Nearly 80% of those most affected and knowledgeable concerning the facilities now proven environmental benefits have officially voted to keep the dams, but of course Mr. Greenson is infinitely wiser. Current data is now revealing facilities profound and irreplaceable benefits regarding unameliorable natural Upper Basin conditions including biological nutrient sequestration, mircrocystin, and temperatures, and yet none of that is currently allowed in the frenzied maneuvering to forcing environmental/public/private loss and uncompensated confiscation upon the majority most affected before the uninformed become aware or care. Impairments have now been proven benefits, and volitional passage for millions of salmon to hundreds of miles of previous habitat has been refuted not only by ignored pre-Project historical documentation and majority multi-generational experience, but now by proponents own paid studies trying to prove the opposite. Freedom of PacifiCorp choice was NOT the mantra uttered prior to continued threat of seated members proponent lawsuits and specifically altered 401 permits to effectively force Agreement acquiescence, nor does it address the impacts to the unrepresented public/private affected interests in a quasi-public entity facility. A myriad of documented examples exposed by diverse whistleblowers proving the extent of corruption to achieve pre-defined policy directives is available to any who wish to research. Multiple PROVEN alternatives to removals of dams certified in EXCELLENT condition have been repeatedly presented for a FRACTION of removal costs, damage, and risks, but NONE are considered in the face of this one outcome special interest agenda refusing to amend now proven defective FERC EIR mandates. None has said Governor Brown STARTED the removals, but his Water Crisis Management Plan policy directed order that ALL his appointed agencies, including DWR, DFG, and CPUC, WILL do whatever is required to facilitate Klamath Dams removals (which they have) is hardly exculpatory. But then, Mr. Greenson obviously knows all this. Even stranger, had he examined equally available statistics of salmon returns to the dams region over the last hundred years, he might find it not only suggests no pre-Project statistical decline, and in fact productive consistency, but a significant INCREASE of returns with the addition of Iron Gate artificially further enhanced downstream conditions.

Hopefully, Mr. Greenson, I will be another one that the readers might forgive. However, in your accusation to the prior author, whom I dont personally know, questioning his possible motive, I find it interesting throughout this debacle, I have yet to hear of ANYONE from the most knowledgeable and affected majority speaking in opposition to the environmentally and regionally destructive removals who is paid or reimbursed for their moral obligation to do so. On the other hand, in their attempt to divide and conquer a previously trusting regional community, I have also yet to hear a SINGLE locally knowledgeable PROPONENT for removals who ISNT personally profiting from their position, and absolutely NONE who are willing to be held liable for the damages caused. Are you the exception, Mr. Greenson? I thought not.

Re: “Drugs! Guns! Eureka Police Department POPs Five

I do know the Camilli family. I love both Bill and Delores,and have known and loved them my entire life. However Doug and Dougie are both a disgrace. Big Doug has been a drug using ,selling piece of shit for 40 years. Little Doug is a loser junkie and been on and off heroine since he was a kid . Now he's a grown man and needs to finally be accountable for being the piece of shit he is. It's a shame that these two men were allowed to even have the Camilli name .

Re: “Huffman: 'I Know My Job is to Fight'

California has enacted the National Popular VOte bill.

It is 61% of the way to guaranteeing the majority of Electoral College votes and the presidency in 2020 to the candidate who receives the most popular votes in the country, by changing state winner-take-all laws (not mentioned in the U.S. Constitution, but later enacted by 48 states), without changing anything in the Constitution, using the built-in method that the Constitution provides for states to make changes.

All voters would be valued equally in presidential elections, no matter where they live.

Re: “That Dam Breitbart Story

As I remarked the other day, the dodgiest part of that whole sad article is that allegation regarding the Pat Brown-Ronald Regan election hinging on North Coast flooding:

"It's laughable to suggest that big city California voters gave any fucks whatsoever about the conditions of life on the North Coast, whether in 1966 or today."

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: “(UPDATED) Arrest Made in Fatal Shooting of 19-Year-Old

Considering that Maxx was raised bugs grandmother, I don't think his mother's character should have anything to do with this. The fact is, the witness just refused to testify because he SAW the shooter and it wasn't Maxx.
I've never ET his mother, but I've known Max since he was about six years old and he is a very kind, funny, creative young man. His rap needs a little work, but he is no murderer.

Also, Steve, your opinion about him should be based on your experience with HIM not his mom. Max and his sister Eve are two of my very best friends. I had to speak up here.

Re: “Defense Attorneys Urge Supes to Scrap Public Defender Hire, Start Over

this deserves way more attention. objectively, its a crime against the public and plain old ass kissing chickenshit of our supervisors, especially. what cases has this guy already represented locally? he's a future liability in the very least. include similar instances like lee ulansey's glaring conflict of interest associated with his appointment to the planning commission, the entire board of supervisors needs to be scrapped. the supervisors continue to prove themselves inept, if not corrupt. this is more icing on an already ridiculously iced cake.
