Re: “UPDATE: Officer Involved Shooting in Eureka

The suspect I know was wounded at Sole Savers. There is no way someone can fire that many shoots at that close of a range and not hit the suspect with bullets. I'm the only one that was outside when the officer began shooting and at him to see it that close. I seen multiple shoots from the officer going into the Mazda from less than three feet. There was never any other time an officer came close to shooting him after that. He was too far away. His wounds slowed him down to the point where they found him.

Re: “Taxpayer Advocate Leo Sears Dies

Leo was lion. He knew what was going on in this county and was willing to speak up when things were both right and wrong. Agree with him or not you left his presence more aware of what you were doing and how it affected our community. Leo cared deeply about this county and put his money and his mouth where he thought it would do the most. Even though I would always get an earful of criticism and a drop of praise I knew it was well deserved. Rest in Peace my friend.

Re: “Sometimes Voters Just Sit a Race Out

No Kim, this header should read:

"THE VAST MAJORITY OF POTENTIAL VOTERS ALWAYS SIT IT OUT".

Like obedient cogs dutifully protecting the multi-billion dollar stream of election ad-revenue, you will not find one mainstream "journalist" with the courage to question the legitimacy of U.S. elections that have the lowest turnout in the industrialized world.

Instead, readers are consistently mislead by countless articles like this one, always calculating election turnout by the number of registered voters and not the overwhelming majority of "POTENTIAL VOTERS", IE, the 80% that did not vote in the presidential primaries!

Reporting under-votes by the minority of participants is an irrelevant distraction.

Yes, 72% of registered voters cast their ballots last November, however, 70% of potential voters have been abstaining in local and national elections since the early 1970's!

Even a 10 year old can quickly look up voting age populations to compare to their community's voter turn-out.

Would reporting the greater reality and alerting the public help address this catastrophe?

Of course, but finding "journalism" that reports in the public interest requires a subscription to distant publications and media like "Democracy Now".

Re: “Ferndale Cowboy in National Rodeo Finals Tonight

Poor research on this story. Who is Bill Bugenig? Never met him... Billy or "B" on the other hand... I'll quote the article: "This process should be accomplished within three seconds." Really? My understanding is that the arena record is 3.0 seconds. So, ONE person in history has accomplished it in equal to three seconds. Get your facts straight, talk to some people who know "Bill", talk to some people who know the sport, be a journalist.
