Re: “All Aboard the Fun Bus

Ryan Hurley your editorial comments where affensive to the public.

" When you think about it, transit buses and public restrooms have a lot in common. Both are uncomfortable and both are stalwart offenders of one's olfactory glands. "

Re: “Redline the Carpet

"We live in a world of politics and posturing, where people post their every superficial thought..."
Oh, the irony.

Re: “The Voice

Thanks, Simona!

"reader reading," re: Caltrans v. Richardson Grove, what are you talking about?

Re: “The Voice

Has to be said: Fear vs. Hope had a very pro-GMO slant, the title alone does the real argument no justice. I also remember Heidi's article about Caltrans vs. Richardson grove, for which she wrote an editorial response to readers at large stating she couldn't comprehend the negative backlash toward what she believed to be a thoroughly impartial report of the situation, yet never really addressed the issues brought up in defense of leaving the grove alone.

Re: “ACLU's Small Town Problem

"No doubt the ACLU does good for our country, but it disregards the smaller communities."

I have to disagree with the second part of that statement. I've lived in several small communities over the years, and in two separate locations I've seen the ACLU active in local issues involving racial discrimination, including one here in Eureka:…

Re: “Rabbits with Habits

Name calling and stereotyping. It's all that prohibitionists have left to offer society since virtually every piece of marijuana propaganda out there has been thoroughly debunked, and completely dismissed by a smarter than prohibitionists thought public.

Nobody can provide a real reason to continue the "War on Marijuana" because there isn't one.

You know, a little live and let live goes a real long way in insuring a very long, stress and anger free life. If you don't like marijuana, then by all means don't use it. Allow others to make their own choices about marijuana.

The government has no business attempting to legislate morality by creating victim-less marijuana "crimes" because it simply doesn't work and has already cost the taxpayers a fortune.

Re: “Herbs and Bees

Wow, on both counts. Here is our war on drugs in action.

And it sure is sad to see my old home town turn into a police state. One might think council members would know about the Constitution, but hey, they got issues to deal with. Still, they think they are liberals. What a joke.

Re: “Laws are Made to be Broken

A new documentary: "Plastic Paradise, The Great Pacific Garden Patch" 2014:

determined that contamination from thermal receipts, (handed to you at the organic grocery store), is immediately absorbed into your body.

That, along with the plethora of other sources of endocrine disruptive plastic derivatives, is responsible for the hormonal problems that lead to obesity.

Re: “Redline the Carpet

If you ever decide to pen a critical investigative report on HSU, for example, the plethora of wrongful termination suits, HSU's 99% loss of arbitration rulings, the class-centered fee, tuition and services structure, the multi-million dollar emphasis on leisure and entertainment, the lack of a single executive with an advanced degree in their field, the lack of a single study showing that privatization of campus services is efficient or cheaper....the failure of the school newspaper, the "Lumberjack", to file routine Public Record Act requests...

...then you will discover, (like so many other faculty, staff and student employees that always learn the hard way), tenure and due-process rights are useless after you are wrongfully fired and face state attorneys for ten years to enforce you rights and win back your job, if you're still solvent, or alive.

Re: “Brewing Discontent

Too little, too late Sid.

Get it in writing next time before you advocate for corporate welfare from an impoverished rural city that can't keep its schools open or its sewage contained.

Re: “Beer is Good

"More living wage jobs, more sales tax, more property tax and all that goes with expansion will pay off these costs in a relatively short time."

Except, thanks to the NCJ investigation, none of these claims can be verified.

In fact, according to Groom's own quotes, she holds Eureka in very low regard and doesn't deserve one dime of Eureka taxpayer's subsidies.

Re: “Laws are Made to be Broken

Thanks Charles. The First Law (not "Law"!) takes losses into account. The human digestive tract is super-efficient--at least 95%--in wringing available energy from food, which is why human shit doesn't make for useful fertilizer. When turds float, it's either due to excess fat or sulfur dioxide gas (not O2), which is why farts smell like rotten eggs.
