Re: “You Know What Happens When You Assume...

Thank You Mr. Thiessen. I wish I would have read your response sooner. Might you consider sharing this comment with the community in print? The editor may be open to the suggestion. People who think outside of the box are hard to come by in the North Coast Journal Community! Thank you again!

Re: “Pension Envy

Since government is becoming our largest employer they represent our community's economic life-support along with our retirees and pot!

However, if public employees continue their code-of-silence on the uncomfortable truths they know about Humboldt County and its cities, they should be fired.

Why did Eureka's Public Service Officers wait until their jobs were threatened before they spoke out about Eureka's 700 annual missing person's reports that are mostly children? What are local children running from and what other secrets are our "public servants" keeping...and why??

Were they ordered to "shut up" until it didn't matter anymore and were laid off?

Re: “Are you Experienced? ™

Larger water storage tanks, deeper wells, new MJ regs, will only delay the inevitable that could be coming sooner than we think.

Another generation of the usual unregulated abuses of the so-called "rural Lifestyle" could be all that's left unless new water use and impact regulations start applying to everyone.

Re: “Pension Envy

Boy I dunno. Having gone to school forever, worked in my profession forever in a state other than California, and coming here living with my wife in our little RV, I see CalPERS folks in much greater luxury than I have, with much lesser degrees (if any) and fewer years worked. I've learned to call them "CalPERSians".
