Re: “Piecemeal Transparency

Supporting 3 bills that limit public access while claiming they increase public access used to be the standard republican M.O.

"Democrats in name only" are the reason the democratic party has hemorrhaged members and 80% didn't vote in the 2016 primary.

Would officers be more careful discharging lethal weapons if they know the public is watching?

Would there still be executions if they were televised?

No one in the U.S. in the 19th century would have tolerated nor imagined that, one day, being drunk and violent in public justified being shot-on-sight.

Here's how a violent man with a machete was handled in the UK:…

Re: “The Curious Case of Parcel 106-101-054

I have seen the future for the Emerald Triangle.
It ain't pretty.

Corporations and other rich cretins have and are driving prices sky high.
This noted speculator is a prime example of greed making folks do stupid things.
Sadly, we regular residents will pay the many ways.

It may take a bit longer but we will also see even more obscene increased housing prices.

No longer will anyone just wanting a small piece of the countryside ever be able to make any dream come true.

No longer will anyone be able to buy their 'starter' home. Probably already can't afford one as prices are currently excessively high.

The only folks looking forward to the oncoming green rush are realtors. We know how soulless most of them are. They don't give a damn about anything but their fees and commissions.

We may have won the battle but we have lost the war....and I ain't talking about the completely worthless 'War On Drugs'.

It's only gonna get worse.
Count on it.

Re: “Slow Roll

I disagree with the paving of the Arcata Marsh trails. There are other materials that can be used on trails that are natural to the area and usable by those who use a chair, walkers and other legal mobility devices. Part of the concern and bout the Trails in the marsh is the constant need for maintenance and possible new look at how the trails are laid out, but paving them would not be the thing to do.

Clam beach, according to the State Park Service has available chairs with the large wheels to travel on the beach - I have never used one because of the difficultly of transferring, but I would check in with the park service first and see what they got.

It would be nice to establish a hard surface to travel to the beach and this is a reachable goal, but it is costly and I would want to know it would be something that is not destroyed.

Friends of the Dunes are building a trail - I was old it would be accessible, but I have heard this before. I forwarded information on what is needed to be accessible and hope the advice is taken. Be nice to have access to the facility

Re: “Fair Pay

It is irresponsible of Eureka and Humboldt County leadership to allow Eureka to suffer the underfunded services, infrastructure, and skewed statistics caused by their failure to "carry the ball" in getting Eureka's border communities incorporated.

It's the only way Eureka will get even one of its officers to live in the city they police.

How many millions of dollars in state and federal funds is Eureka losing each year because only 1/3 of its actual population is being reported? Eureka loses millions so that the rich can escape a few fees building subdivisions just "outside" city limits.

This would have been a good opportunity to report the costs of lawsuits against Eureka that resulted from excessive force by under-trained, overworked officers required to respond to the PTSD of homelessness, drug abuse, child abuse and mental illness.

Report the actual population and Eureka will have full state and federal funding for its schools, infrastructure, and an appropriate police force without their chief having to "entice" recruits by advertise the excessive number of calls each officer receives that is the result of under-staffing.
