Re: “Eureka Denies Release of Controversial Memo

And yet, the city attorney was comfortable circulating it?

If you fail to pursue this, it will become even more difficult to be taken seriously the next time Eureka circumvents the law, usually around election time.

Re: “Father, Son Killed in Alleged Fortuna DUI

An unharnessed driver can completely lose control quickly, and in the case of a rollover, people bounce around violently inside the vehicle and ejection is so often the outcome — invariably resulting in death. There is no excuse for driving without seatbelts.

Re: “Postal Consolidation Back on the Table

Government is ruthless and relentless. It is a savage beast that will keep coming at you until you get tired of fighting it. Now go pay your taxes and feed the beast, keep on picking between sockpuppets that support and enable the beast.

Re: “Pulp Mill Cleanup Continues

80 years of surrounding Humboldt bay in unaccountable brownfields and you want this process reported?

This is the legacy that gave Supervisor Bass the chutzpah to promise "hundreds of new jobs on our bay" without one assurance about the environmental safety of a wood-pellet factory...

She knew damn-well not one reporter would ask.

Re: “Pulp Mill Cleanup Continues

Transparency no longer merits follow-up reporting. Sorry you missed it the first time before it was flushed down the memory hole.

Everything that happens since then is "new" and unrelated to the past!

There is no context!
Forget it! Move on!

It goes like this:

Another industry hack is elected supervisor, they get the county to sign a "Hold Harmless Clause" relieving industry of liability, then return to a high-paying industry job after "serving the public".

Our local government/industry revolving door operates just like the one in Washington D.C.

If "community media" treated the public reality as news worthy of follow-ups, (and shared a little outrage with THEIR community), many more folks would be interested in voting the bastards out.

Re: “Updated. Our Miss California Contender

The last time you covered a beauty pageant it was not only poorly written, it was negative, and a witch hunt. Glad to see you saw the error of your ways.

Re: “Pulp Mill Cleanup Continues

Previous Evergreen Vice President and current Humboldt County supervisor Rex Bohn might be able to shed some light on why the Harbor District is undertaking the cleanup. Just wondering if my dock space rent is helping to pay for this or is it on the taxpayer's dime. A little transparency would be welcome here........

Can we not find a local use for some of the 'pulp liquor'?
How about a unique secret ingredient in one of our fine Humboldt microbrews?

Re: “Care Home Operator Appeals Suspension

My suggestion to Ms. Chamberlain is that she save her precious dollars and not fight CCLD's Suspension Order. Any CCLD determination will be before an Administrative Law Judge and the determination made will be based upon the evidentiary standard of whether a "preponderance of evidence" exists. It sounds like that much "certainty" exists! Use that attorney of yours to fight the criminal charges which should (!) be forthcoming from newly elected DA Maggie Fleming's shop. The last care home operator (Mary Pearson of Pearson's Care Home - found guilty of criminal charges against her clientele) was extradited back to Humboldt County Superior Court from Missouri (to where she had fled) to face trial. She was convicted on the criminal standard of "guilt beyond a reasonable doubt" and served jail time (it could have been prison) and did probation. Her crime was less severe / extensive than Ms. Chamberlain's is alleged to have been and the repercussions involved via a criminal trial are much more damaging than simply losing one's business livelihood.... Even if she should somehow prevail over the CCLD action, her reputation is toast and her business "cred" now worthless in Eureka. Unless this is a tactic to set up a civil suit / possible monetary award from CCLD???? Fat chance.

Re: “Sundberg Taps Paine for Planning Commission

I hope Steve will represent more than Willow Creek. He has a history of ignoring the other down River communities. This position is a voice for all communities on the River.

Re: “McKinleyville Man Facing 8 Life Sentences Granted Mistrial

The fact that 11 jurors found him guilty...and he is going for a mistrial...he is a POS that needs to be locked up. And deadlocked the first trial with 1 person not agreeing..that's still 90% of the jurors saying he did it. I hope he rots in prison!

Re: “UPDATE: Gray Wolf Listed as Endangered

Brain-dead Bohn makes another wanker statement. Hey Wrecks: wolves aren't the killing machines on this planet, that would be humans. For every cow or sheep that wolves kill for sustenance, humans kill tens of thousands. Wow, where do these morons come from? We need to get rid of these Bohners and Bassholes that have somehow managed to get elected. (I'm afraid that doesn't speak well to the intelligence of this nation. The Republicans' plan to gut the educational system since Wrongald Raygun has worked! Idiotic Republicans can now get elected.) [EDITED]

Re: “UPDATE: Gray Wolf Listed as Endangered

Although the stupidity of comparing northern California to the Greater Yellowstone Complex in discussing wolf ecology speaks for it self, the notion of estimated tourist dollars is interesting. The same was said concerning Headwaters Forest and the second Redwood Park take. Sure enough, the Redwoods are a significant source of tourist income, but ecological value aside, the Headwaters Forest seems to have cost the community economy more than it has contributed. As far as the economic contribution of Redwood Park, a trip through Orick speaks for itself.

I submit that any tourist coming to the north coast to see wolves would be sorely disappointed as by all indications wolves were very rare in western part of the State. Having found no evidence of wolves in Humboldt County, one can be certain that wolves were rare in the Redwoods, if they existed at all.
