Private interests put people into office who then appoint those same people with private interests to modify prior governmental decisions to benefit their interests. Is this not clear? We have institutionalized corruption in County politics.
Can we afford trailsWe can't afford not too have trails--
Donations of materials and source of labor from all those

old of Humboldt to use and support
That old "timber ideology" remains strong in Humboldt, whereby industry descendants and "born here's" retain a distrust for anything with "park", "greenbelt", or "walkable" in the title as they were trained to do by big timber.
We're seeing it again with the folks in Cutten opposed to the McKay park despite the inevitable property value increase and reduction in homeless camps due to the increase in visitors.
Old beliefs die hard.
the meth promblem seems to be related to no hope.. people are sitting around waiting to die. or the world to end.so they live in a world of their own. the lost children have always been with us. just now there is no place to hide and be left alone and get over it.thanks for careing.
This nation's dominant "trickle down" economic ideology is the antitheses of all the major religious teachings. When a nation legislates to benefit the poorest citizens, every class resting upon them benefits.
We are a nation of hypocrite Christians bloated on the child labor and resources of the world's poorest people, an uncomfortable truth intimately familiar to the pharisees...long before Christ.
How about let's go to the source:
Matthew 25:34-36 Then the king will say to those at his right hand, "Come, you that are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world; for I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you gave me clothing, I was sick and you took care of me, I was in prison and you visited me."
Luke 14:12-14 He said also to the one who had invited him, "When you give a luncheon or a dinner, do not invite your friends or your brothers or your relatives or rich neighbors, in case they may invite you in return, and you would be repaid. But when you give a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, and the blind. And you will be blessed, because they cannot repay you, for you will be repaid at the resurrection of the righteous."
Luke 16:19-25 "There was a rich man who was dressed in purple and fine linen and who feasted sumptuously every day. And at his gate lay a poor man named Lazarus, covered with sores, who longed to satisfy his hunger with what fell from the rich man's table; even the dogs would come and lick his sores. The poor man died and was carried away by the angels to be with Abraham. The rich man also died and was buried.
In Hades, where he was being tormented, he looked up and saw Abraham far away with Lazarus by his side. He called out, 'Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus to dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue; for I am in agony in these flames.' But Abraham said, 'Child, remember that during your lifetime you received your good things, and Lazarus in like manner evil things; but now he is comforted here, and you are in agony.
Wow. Score another Yellow Journalism award for NCJ political spinners! Last week there were several letters including mine pointing out the irrationality of defenders of Timber War advocates who made money off of homesteaders and still do who put any Green Diamond or old Maxxam eco-damage in the minor's league in comparison. Logic tells us this as does the watershed damage on the ground. Homesteaders are there 24/7/365 in their watersheds while logging is rotated in small sections through a large comparable acreage. Now these letters are gone and in their place is 100% Timber War supporters.
This is how Humboldt County loses eco-perspective with politically biased reporting and community letter imput so the picture is distorted and so too the response following the distortion in accurate reporting.
The Never Ending Story tells the story of what happens when bits and pieces of reality are "rearranged" and disappear..
I would love to speak with Amanda Tierney. If you read this and know her ask her to call me.
My letter has a serious error in it that I spotted too late to change. The Headwaters Fund spent $750,000 on ads for GD, not $175,000.
The letters by Amanda Tierney and Kristi Wrigley are so excellent. Kristi has been the victim of the terrible effects of rampant logging and has suffered personal losses from the endless flooding of Elk River. She knows of what she speaks. Both letters make important points that the article didn't even glance at.
Arkley is self righteous and hypocritical as they come and is, I believe, a Christian. His business practices led to putting many families out of their homes so he could fatten his coffers and then he turned on those he made homeless. Jean, you just wanted an opportunity to spout your own self righteous, unctious beliefs. Try being homeless for one week and see how you feel about how unimportant quality of life is, sleep out in the bitter cold and wake hungry and not knowing where you can get food and see how you feel about quality of life. Your holier than thou spoutings are offensive and uncaring.
Robert, please in the future do not defame Christians with your need to join the Prog libel and slander crew who just cannot get enough ad hominen character assassination graffiti against Rob Arkley plastered everywhere in Humboldt media venues by Prog trolls who never have done anywhere near what Arkley's done for the community. Bunch of trolls without anything to offer the community themselves so they are jealous of those who do something for the community than attack its helpers.
It is typical of atheists to be unable to discern right from wrong when on the attack against Christians, (yes, it's almost always Christians who atheists go after as someone did a survey of internet atheists posts to find 99% of them posted against Christians on religious forum discussions). Look at John Chiv's post about what Arkley just did without fanfare for the community to see how terrible these awful ethically-challenged atheist trolls behave dissing people doing much better for the community than they ever will.
Hurray for you, Robert Van Fleet !! Gotta love your description of Arkley. Let's not forget that Arkley made his money off of throwing people out of their homes. Thanks, you told it like it is.
Terence, you ain't right. These people ARE standing up for people less fortunate - people losing their business to this slime-bag Singleton. Your implication is that, before protesting anything, you must protest everything that ain't right in this world, which of course would have me up in your yard with a picket sign. Steve Parr, Eureka

For the record, I'm with Tom Wolfe (?), "Purposes are for porpoises."
Thanks to this writer for pointing out the farce that taking rat bait off the shelf is.
