Re: “Closed

Man what a "downer" of an opinion. I can't believe all is lost and I won't stop trying as long as I'm physically able to help contribute something to my community. Flat roof buildings are a challenge to maintain. The houses and apartment buildings in other cities have successfully achieved their construction for hundreds of years. But they do need constant attention more than conventional roofing. The Vet building isn't beyond repair at this point. I hope it can be reborn as a tribute to our veterans and a continuing center for our community.

Re: “McKinleyville Man Abducted in Niger

I will pray for Jeffrey and share this horrible news so others can also pray for him.

Re: “Closed

I am sad to see another unintelligible rant from the chronically depressed, sick and stoned correspondent chronicling the mournful, sad decay in Goobsterdam. Right up the street from the disgusting veteran's hall, which should have been torn down decades ago, is the reprehensible Jerold Phelps Hospital-like structure, which should be closed and have an orange fence erected around it!
Goobsterdam is nothing more than a dead town inhabited by pot farmers, and operated by the remaining businessmen who moved out long ago. This little burg has nothing, is nothing, and probably will never recover. Even Cedarville and Portola and Hoopa have better medical facilities! Goobsterdam has had nothing new built in the last 50 years, with the possible exception of the Motels-which have become drug supermarkets and where no thinking person would stay...
The funniest part is that Goobsterdam is always whining about needing help! The folks in this town hate outsiders vehemently, and Goobstedam is one of the most provincial, xenophobic, paranoid and hostile places I have ever been. If it wasn't so crazy there, I would call it a small hole containing extreme conservatism. They paint themselves as hippies but they are really Republicans! All the folks there want is for you to come and spend some money (CASH ONLY!) and then leave.
John, your essay says to me "burn down the Veteran's Hall and Humboldt County will have to build us a new one". This is a dangerous viewpoint, but typical of the thinking of the disabled pot growers in Humboldt County.
Come to think of it, Garberville is a less than attractive nuisance, and the whole place should just have the orange-fence treatment that it is famous for.

Re: “Unopposed

"Eureka's ....board (council) majority continuously shift(s) from one side to the other." (Kimberly Wear).

NOT TRUE Kimberly!

Can you recall the last time there was a majority of candidates that won without the support of the usual development industry donors? Atkins, Bergel and Arroyo are the first majority I've seen in 40 years and it's probably been much longer.

There's plenty of caring and intelligent adults that would run if we had public financed elections for seats that paid meaningful compensation.

Re: “The Case of the Missing $5 Million

OMG. This is terrible and was so difficult to read. There is so much wrong here that it is way over the top of wrong. There must be SOMETHING that can be done to ensure the safety of these precious people who need care. Mr. Shlomo Rechnitz needs to answer for what has happened. This is not right.

Re: “The Other Side of the River

Law enforcement doesn't go out there? Im not sure if I can think of a spot law enforcement frequents more... between the pot growing, idiotic family feuding that results in leos having to intervene to save your family members lifes, your family's contributing to the delinquency of minors by supplying them with substances while unsupervised, your family affairs of duis, so in general next time before you feel like ranting or feeling superior perhaps you should take a honest look at your self and your "family" as you cost tax payers more than you have ever contributed

Re: “The Case of the Missing $5 Million

Marilyn, lets not forget that both Chesbro and Berg are now retired and writing this as concerned community members.
Woods and McGuire's lawns may be fair game but they are already hard at work and fully on board. I would suggest that it is the Reps in LA where Mr. Rechnitz lives who could offer them the most insight into what this billionaire will and will not respond to.
I'd rather protest directly in front of Mr. Rechnitz house, at the Shlomo & Tamar Rechnitz Charitable Foundation offices, at the Chabad of California’s headquarters in Westwood, as Torath Emeth or The Chofetz Chaim Heritage Foundation where he is the first Chairman of the Board.
This is where you can shame the man, where he lives and at the facilities that is most proud of, and where he claims to be charitable. If you can demonstrate his hypocrisy to those whose opinion he values, then we might get somewhere.

Re: “The Case of the Missing $5 Million

Excellent point.

However, our representatives typically only respond out of fear and loathing, it's how industries and their lobbyists get what they want.

We might need to occupy the lawns of Chesbro, Berg, McGuire and Wood too.

Re: “The Case of the Missing $5 Million

It is time to put pressure directly on Mr. Shlomo Rechnitz.
Thanks to Patty Berg and Wes Chesbro for this:…/a-dire-situation/Content…

But can they now help us to put pressure on Shlomo Rechnitz? It would require getting to him where he lives. What Temple does he attend and who is his Rabbi? This is where the protests need to be held as he clearly presents himself as a pious man:…
