I've been away for 3 years, but Ricos in Arcata used to be the best relleno for my taste!

Re: “Robert Durst's Ghost

This could have been avoided years ago if Trinidad had simply invited Eureka's crackerjack police force to rustle every Trinidad resident out of bed to check their I.D., just like they do in Eureka's homeless camps. They're trained, experienced and ready to go.

The poor are convicted more often than the rich because they lack good attorneys, not because they commit more crime.

Re: “Move Over PG&E?

How about we don't use Shell like Marin does. Interesting - this woman's organization is sponsored by Shell.

Re: “Move Over PG&E?

Sounds like a great idea to give us another option for energy. Where are we planning to come up with $10 million to start the program? I'm not sure what a JPA has to do with it. Seems like we are missing the point. We need money.

Re: “Move Over PG&E?

No mention of the problems of a private not-actual-CCA stepping in and running the CCA for us in a turn-key fashion? Internalize profits, externalize costs? I'd be more enclined to trust the monopoly which can be more easily regulated than an energy middleperson.

Re: “Sheriff: $26 Million Worth of Marijuana Eradicated on Island Mountain

I just want to say to the boys who got busted and are currently waiting to be found. Don't you all fell like dumb asses for letting the police know that your growing and you want to be chosen to continue to grow after legalization? AFTER the legalization!!!!! You invited them in just as they wanted you too. Way to go!

Re: “Sheriff: $26 Million Worth of Marijuana Eradicated on Island Mountain

This is a gross waste of law enforcement resources! Lazy cops picking soft targets instead of fighting real crimes. Back to work coppers and leave harmless cannabis alone!
With the CDC statistics below becoming common knowledge it is time for the next step in logic. Either politicians who are against cannabis legalization are not up to speed, or they are paid off by the alcoholic beverage , tobacco and pharmaceutical corporations which together are directly responsible for over 650,000 US citizens annually and are scared witless that cannabis legalization will ruin their deadly multi billion dollar stranglehold on the US public.
Figures directly from the CDC dot gov web site
Numbers of deaths per year in the USA
* Prescription Drugs: 237,485 + 5000 traffic fatalities
* Tobacco: 390,323
* Alcohol: 88,013 + 16,000 traffic fatalities
* Cocaine: 4,906
* Heroin: 3,365
* Aspirin: 466
* Acetaminophen (Tylenol): 179
* Marijuana: 0, none, not a single fatal overdose in all medical history and almost no traffic problems
Stop the lies and Legalize nationally!

Re: “Re-Christening the Golden Rule

Actually there were proclamations of support from the County Board of Supervisors, Eureka City council proclamation. Kim Bergel was there all day. And I'm sure I missed others from city and county. If you weren't there, it's too bad because it was a great event. Hopeful.
Humboldt County and it's citizens has shown it's support of the Golden Rule.

Re: “You Know What Happens When You Assume...

Thank You Mr. Thiessen. I wish I would have read your response sooner. Might you consider sharing this comment with the community in print? The editor may be open to the suggestion. People who think outside of the box are hard to come by in the North Coast Journal Community! Thank you again!

Re: “Pension Envy

Since government is becoming our largest employer they represent our community's economic life-support along with our retirees and pot!

However, if public employees continue their code-of-silence on the uncomfortable truths they know about Humboldt County and its cities, they should be fired.

Why did Eureka's Public Service Officers wait until their jobs were threatened before they spoke out about Eureka's 700 annual missing person's reports that are mostly children? What are local children running from and what other secrets are our "public servants" keeping...and why??

Were they ordered to "shut up" until it didn't matter anymore and were laid off?

Re: “Are you Experienced? ™

Larger water storage tanks, deeper wells, new MJ regs, will only delay the inevitable that could be coming sooner than we think.

Another generation of the usual unregulated abuses of the so-called "rural Lifestyle" could be all that's left unless new water use and impact regulations start applying to everyone.

Re: “Pension Envy

Boy I dunno. Having gone to school forever, worked in my profession forever in a state other than California, and coming here living with my wife in our little RV, I see CalPERS folks in much greater luxury than I have, with much lesser degrees (if any) and fewer years worked. I've learned to call them "CalPERSians".

Re: “Homeowners Allege Firefighters in Saddle Fire Endangered Lives, Property

It wasnt about the firefighters but the decisions made which caused the fire to grow. We are grateful and blessed for the love and dedication of those trained hardworking fire fighters. A review of policy and procedure on management may be something to consider, for the safety of all, including those on the frontlines

Re: “Discipline Disparities

Carroll, my point is simply that I fail to see scapegoating in this case. You state that discipline is arbitrary, and also site the black/white discrepancy in arrest rates, however in neither case do I read either class or race being stated as THE problem. Rather, the problem is as you state, individuals within the system. It's not scapegoating to claim race is a factor in arrest rates when, as with discipline among children of different affluence, the poor and the black are being discriminated against. Seems like your feathers are more ruffled over what you might believe to be insulting toward poor students, whereas I read it from the other perspective of favoritism...reverse-scapegoating? We agree overall, regardless.
