Re: “Teens These Days

How rare it is to read anything by a local educator, a strange reality considering there are two local college campuses.

How do you expect to "understand " anything if there's no effort whatsoever to report where we've been and what we've lost in how we treat youths?

Back when a part time job could pay for college, the California Employment and Training Administration was cut by Ronald Reagan and Humboldt County lost about $13 million each year in assistance emancipating youths unsuited to foster care but who are willing to work and attend college.

Today, local leaders have ensured that Humboldt County is fully funded with its $15 million expansion of the county jail, a new $20 million juvenile hall, and the recently completed $15 million federal courthouse in McKinleyville where the first civil trial found Eureka police at fault for killing a 22 year old in his front yard. No EPD policy changes are forthcoming.

If you're serious about understanding local youths you must do your own research.

Not one local media source has logged-on to the county's website and searched for the county's "Trends Report", a quarterly analysis meriting routine reporting. It details shocking statistics in every category of human health 2 and 3 times worse than state averages...youth unemployment, drug fatalities, suicide, infant mortality, child abuse, major illnesses, and on and on...

This county, its media, its educators, elected and appointed representatives, and professionals have circled their wagons in silence.

Local residents, including Mr. Kausen and Mr. Millet should be outraged.

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.

Re: “Sickened by Fiction

Wow, Joe! Thanks.
I had missed that article completely.
Searched it out to read just because of you.

Sounds good to me. When it comes right down to it there are still limited ways to describe such personal events.

Dude, the lead paragraph warned you.
Odd and revealing you object to a particular sexual act but not to murders?

Keep up the good, honest and fair work, my brothers.

Re: “There Will Be Trolls

The people who edit trolls are probably the very same people who would consider any comment made by the entire voting block of Trump a troll. Roughly HALF of the US population vituperitvely dissagree with each other. Shutting down the voice of half the population because the left leaning media doesn't like it is only going to leave more surprises to unravel. Gird up your loins (pull up your big girl panties) and quit getting feelings hurt! Bring on the comments!

Re: “Smarten Up

Terence James Dehart In my experience most people do not want to be led. They would like honest data on which to make an informed decision. Sadly it seems as if the media (Yes, I know, a generality) has decided that it is best if they be guided by the wiser heads who have the power to ration the truth.

Re: “Smarten Up

One of the most painful lessons I ever learned was that raw intelligence and reading books and listening to NPR was overrated if not unhelpful when attempting to lead people. Perhaps if you stepped out of your educated bubble you could learn about people who think differently and lead them more effectively.
