Re: “It's All About Us

Yes, the whole Titus family is to be admired. And YES Caroline is my personal hero as well. How many women in a small town would be able to stand up with all these relentless and untrue accusations going on and on. Let's all hope at least one fair board member realizes they need new members who are educated and want to to the right thing by the people of Ferndale and the whole of Humboldt county who love the fair and the horse races.

Re: “It's All About Us

"Many journalists cozy up to the government officials they cover."

Marcy must have Arcata in mind with this chilling and spot-on statement.

Re: “It's All About Us

For several years I was a contributor for The Ferndale Enterprise for the Loleta area. A decade prior to that I gave music lessons to the Titus daughters. I have great respect for Caroline. I especially admire her willingness to not to be afraid of the naysayers and defend the right to free speech. Thank you, Caroline.

Re: “It's All About Us

Caroline, Stu & their 3 children, have continued to handle themselves with an amazing amount of grace and integrity. Their family should be an inspiration to us all. They've endured ridicule, vile rumors, physical threats ,intimidation, personal attacks & blatant slander. They refused to react to this relentless onslaught & chose to take the high road. Caroline fought for the truth & our right to public record. The people she was fighting, have not only shown a disregard of our Constitution, they've disrespected American soldiers & citizens that fought for those rights. Thank God our forefathers had the foresight to realize that our freedom could be threatened by our own neighbors. I am proud to call Stu & Caroline my friends

99.1 is not out of Ferndale, it is part of MAd River Radio in Eureka. It is not locally owned.

Re: “ACLU Angst

I'm a member of the ACLU and that does not prevent me from personally despising the Citizens United Supreme Court decision, neo-Nazis and everything that they do, and the effect that corporations have over health, social, and scientific policies. And I think that the ACLU, though its scope is limited, is doing a lot of good. A good reason to join the ACLU --the work they are doing to fight unjust voting laws.

Re: “Connected Dots

It's all about Marcy, right?

Re: “Connected Dots

I wonder if the students in the Journalism Department are taught to proof read their work before submitting it for publication? Ms. Burstiner clearly did not do so with this weeks Media Maven submission.

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

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: “ACLU Angst

The National ACLU is also opposed to adoptees having. their rights to their original birth certificates. Some local ACLU chapters around the country have been supportive of adoptees rights to their own original birth certificates. It seems the national ACLU doesn't believe that the 14th amendment applies to people who are adopted in this country. I think it's just become yet another corrupted political organization

Re: “ACLU Angst

I like that idea humboldtrick, and I would even take it a step further and say that we are each individually our own ACLU. If it gets down to it you need to advocate for yourself if you feel that your constitutional rights are not being respected by individuals or organizations that like to interpret laws how they see fit. I can easily see the ACLU being taken over in a clandestine move the way certain right leaning individuals tried to take over the HCDCC here. Sounds like the national strategy needs some revamping and perhaps a change in leadership.
