Re: “Merv's World

Mr. George sounds like a great man with great values and determination. As a former public servant, it does me good to see him succeed as he has. I wish him well in all of his future efforts.

Re: “Last of the Liquors Leave the Pulp Mill

In the rest of the story....

The public subsidized another major polluter on Humboldt Bay, the continuation of a century-old legacy that surrounded our bay in brownfields, the largest inhibitor to local economic growth.

We can expect our county to sign many more "hold-harmless" agreements with future polluters as long as residents remain uninformed of the practice and consequences.

Re: “Fight Night Returns to Trinidad

Anyone hurt at the casinos can't sue. They're soverign. I would think our fighter, Mr. Watts, learned that the hard way. Even with waivers, he should've been provided immediate, ringside, professional medical attention... but the casinos have no liability... blood out of a stone.

Re: “Fight Night Returns to Trinidad

I'm sick of the fights, the drinking the gambling. Why do Humboldters have to toss away their money on this crap. Send the casinos packing, just like the Trump gaming palaces in Atlantic City that closed this month. We need to spend our money wisely. This is not entertainment. This is classless, mindless, spending at vacuous casinos.

Re: “Fight Night Returns to Trinidad

These dangerous exibitions of over the top violence should be outlawed! We are a half step ahead of a society that looks as though it's preparing to go up in a massive conflagration ala Rome. (that's Rome the city state not the pundit) Such foolishness is not only bad for the participants but for our society as a whole!

Re: “Coffee or T and A?

Hey I will admit if I looked good in a bikini I would apply. I don't so no worries I will not apply. I may scare off customers rather than bring them in. HAHA My ONLY complaint is I KEEP PARSING IT UP. I will get my mom-mobile in there one of these days. I have tried almost all the Java places here, love them all no real favorite yet. Keep up the American Dream!

Re: “The Importance of Why

Really nice job, Grant. It's great to see the Common Core explained, and to get an in-the-classroom look at how teachers are implementing it—especially since there has been so much negative commentary about it.

Re: “Richmond Reflects

"So, there's this issue of what's going to happen to our democracy and I think one of the things we can do is really support it locally, and the role the university plays in that is fairly significant."

If university campuses, or their executives, ever actually cared about democracy, they would have addressed the abysmal 10% turnout rate for student voting decades ago.

Here's a rare resource for relevant questions to ask in the future:…

Re: “HSU Conference Focuses on Addiction, Social Change

It's astounding how many records Humboldt County holds in so many distressing areas, yet, without a conference, a catastrophe, or local expert with the guts to speak out, each record-high statistic is reported separate from the others before disappearing for years as the problems worsen.

Re: “Possible Insanity Defense in Marijuana Murder Case

I think the culture and tolerance in the area allows "goons" like this to flourish. While he may not have been born in Kneeland, he is representative of what can be found there, and for the purposes of this article he is clearly a Kneeland man.

I'm sure many of the meth heads roaming the streets of Eureka weren't born here, but come here to enjoy the same tolerance as Mr. Serra did. All represent the area, if you don't like it, work to run them out.

Re: “Possible Insanity Defense in Marijuana Murder Case

Please stop calling him a "Kneeland man"! He is not, was not, from Kneeland. He bought property from a "land man" [EDIT]. He never interacted with any one here [EDIT] and he scared the bajesus out of everyone whom he came in contact with. Please call him a "bay area man", I think that is where he comes from. Kneelanders do want the stigma of that goon, please.

Re: “The Light on the Bluff

As the truth surfaces from over 37 years,it is clear,all those that want to refuse to clear themselfs of this terror done to the poor and children in central america.(even going on today) are friends with the devil and sit in there wealth,givin them with the blood of the innocents. When I was with Jose Montt,I saw him molesting a child (ten or so years old),drunk ,and smelled like booze and cigars. I was summarally poisoned and later brainwashed and sent away to a fake mission. It took all this time to come out of the poison. Now and then, all the shooting at me proves I am right and I stand with Jesus even today and those that took away our church are the quilty ones with blood on there hands,along with the conservative side of our government. The church was instrumental in rooting out the poor for enialation. I noticed the clicks and snoby rich types take control andthat was where Jesus left with people like those that montt killed. Why doesn't Gospel Outreach cry out how wrong the CIA was for taking the lives of the missionaries we sent with Jose Montt? why dont they repent and preach what happened? If the truth sets you free,how come its to big a pill for g o to swallow and say they were wrong? How about the thousands sent away,poisoned,or killed.from Lolita,cal., so people like montt could get to be preacher,dictator,genocidal born again terror for George Bushes kinder and gentler America? On another note,the girl he molested looks alot like his current wife. How old is she now and how old was she in 1979 Figure that out. 11! Thats sick. you guys sent me away and so many others and let this murderous child mollester take a nation. Now the people flee from there even all these years later. By there fruits you shall know them. well G.O. That fruit is evil. time to change your hearts and really serve god and put your lives on the line for those kids and poor. Help us dear lord god for there sakes. In Jesus name,Mark Z.

Re: “Figy's No More

It's clear someone from the outside was brought in based on the efficiency of the demolition. I can't blame anyone for bringing in people that can actually get a job done in a normal, non Humboldt, timeline.

I have no issue with better service at lower prices from a corporation rather than apathetic service from Humboldt locals. I compare the pleasant serve I get from Starbucks as opposed to any of the "local" options....

It would be great if locals could learn rather than complain.

Re: “Figy's No More

Apparently CVS found it better to hire people from Yuba City rather than hire locally. Just like Lost Coast Brewery. And McKinleyville really needed another pharmacy.........News flash: Walgreens and RiteAid have better prices than CVS. Pass that on and maybe CVS will go broke.
