Re: “Arcata Moves Forward on Marijuana Zone

This is good news. I strongly support medical cannabis but see rampant abuse of the system.

Cannabis growers have taken over Arcata's rental market, inflating rental rates to the point that they are un-affordable to people not making a profit from their rental units.

Greedy cannabis growers must be controlled.

Re: “There's a New Theater Owner in Town

Get Michael Moore involved. The Minor Theater is historic and maybe Moore who wants to bring back downtown movie theaters. Thsi theater is the longest operating. Deserves national attention.

Re: “Growing the Machine

Thadeus-- Good article, except this awful assumption about ...."unified the local marijuana industry behind a single vision." Have you taken a poll? Not likely. Have you attended any of the potlucks? Not sure the hill people are buying the ordinance. Not sure if only the "unified" are the grow industry businesses and not really the growers.

Re: “Growing the Machine

Sorry, I'm not buying this eco groovy land use fiasco. Politicians in bed with large scale grow businesses; why are we not surprised the out-of-towners are pushing land use regulations to benefit businesses without an eye to the watersheds. It's all about the buck - the other green.

I, too, am moved by Neff's enthusiasm. All the best. Glad it's in local, loving hands.

Re: “Reckoning Day

Well, the bastards lied to us again. They trick the public into raising sales tax so they won't have to cut police and fire services, and six months later they are doing just that. I posted a comment on the pro-tax Facebook page that this is exactly what would happen even if the tax passed. Everyone needs to remember this next time the liars ask for another tax increase. They'll just keep cutting services until there are no more. And remember this bullshit the next time they ask to be re-elected. Screw 'em.

Re: “A Well Driller's Life

I'm sure the well drillers in California must be frantic right now. Hopefully they are still able to hit water eventually. The high fives right now have got to be much more meaningful with that horrible drought going on. I wonder how much deeper they have to dig right now to get to that water if there's even any to find.

Re: “'This Devaluation of Human Life'

Do you really believe that some of these drug related deaths were because of weed and not methamphetamine or heroin????? Come on now.

Re: “Summer of Fun

Is there a calendar to go along with this information? Reading as a story is difficult to negotiate.

Re: “Paul Sever's Wilderness

Excellent hike. Be prepared for any weather conditions. Carry several copies of tide charts and never get stuck at high tide.

Re: “UPDATE: EPD's "Streamlined" Budget


How many EPD employees are related to other current/former EPD employees?
How many other local government agencies are paying for nepotism?

720 missing juveniles every year in Eureka?

What are they running from?

How is our community dealing with so many troubled youths?

Do you think this might have a negative impact on violence, crime, drug abuse, and homelessness filling the media an costing the public millions of dollars?

Eureka, and Humboldt county have been successful at keeping its large numbers of at-risk kids a secret. Once the authorities also stop counting traffic accidents, they can make those horrendous statistics disappear too. Such a clever bunch!

And with decreasing traffic accidents...we won't need so many police, right?

Re: “Upstream Battle

As a co-founder of the Salmon Run, I am for dam removal and against the KBRA.
I would feel bad if someone felt they couldn’t participate because of any particular runner or coordinator’s stance on the KBRA. The run was founded by youth of different tribes in response to the fish kill in 2002 before the KBRA, and has also always supported non-Indian participation as well. Blessings to all runners. May all your pains drop off of you as you run for salmon, the rivers and all tohna:y, wun-nowht'aw, ts'ehdiya.
