Re: “Merv's World

Mr. George sounds like a great man with great values and determination. As a former public servant, it does me good to see him succeed as he has. I wish him well in all of his future efforts.

Re: “Scare Tactics

"The problem with the news industry is that it feels compelled to report what's new."
This is the sort of loopy prose that I'd expect to see in the letters to the editor in a small town newspaper, but instead we're getting it from the "chair of the Department of Journalism and Mass Communication at Humboldt State University."

Re: “Last of the Liquors Leave the Pulp Mill

In the rest of the story....

The public subsidized another major polluter on Humboldt Bay, the continuation of a century-old legacy that surrounded our bay in brownfields, the largest inhibitor to local economic growth.

We can expect our county to sign many more "hold-harmless" agreements with future polluters as long as residents remain uninformed of the practice and consequences.

Re: “Follow the Money

The largest part of increasing government expenditures is public employee health and pension costs.

Re: “Fight Night Returns to Trinidad

Anyone hurt at the casinos can't sue. They're soverign. I would think our fighter, Mr. Watts, learned that the hard way. Even with waivers, he should've been provided immediate, ringside, professional medical attention... but the casinos have no liability... blood out of a stone.

Re: “Fight Night Returns to Trinidad

I'm sick of the fights, the drinking the gambling. Why do Humboldters have to toss away their money on this crap. Send the casinos packing, just like the Trump gaming palaces in Atlantic City that closed this month. We need to spend our money wisely. This is not entertainment. This is classless, mindless, spending at vacuous casinos.

Re: “Fight Night Returns to Trinidad

These dangerous exibitions of over the top violence should be outlawed! We are a half step ahead of a society that looks as though it's preparing to go up in a massive conflagration ala Rome. (that's Rome the city state not the pundit) Such foolishness is not only bad for the participants but for our society as a whole!

Re: “Scare Tactics

This one kind of threw me for a loop. I agree with your message that newspapers and media in general swamp us with bad news. It's like a pack of dogs during dinner time, they go to where the easy meal is. The easy stuff tends to be the bad stuff. The dogs devour that stuff as gluttonously as the rest of us do. But you are so right. We are safe for the most part. Now that news is worldwide and updated by the minute, it's easy to get lost in it all, to lose your grip on reality if you follow it too closely. For that reason a good journalist should take his time and breath a situation in before he reports on it. And as for the rest of us, we should do the same. It's too easy to go with the pack. We should take the time to chew our daily dosage of news before we swallow it.

Re: “Scare Tactics

Marcy, I hear you, but if newspapers ran their main headline with "Nothing Bad Happened Today," no one would read them.

Re: “The Blue Cross Blues

How simple minded we must be to allow our elected officials to create a medical plan that is "good enough for the american citizen!" Yet they refuse to be part of it and have their own plan. Enough is enough! It should be a mandate that they participate and allow no other palns. Also there should be no pension or benefits granted to any elected official after they are out of office. This was supposed to be a "public service" not a career field.

Re: “Coffee or T and A?

Hey I will admit if I looked good in a bikini I would apply. I don't so no worries I will not apply. I may scare off customers rather than bring them in. HAHA My ONLY complaint is I KEEP PARSING IT UP. I will get my mom-mobile in there one of these days. I have tried almost all the Java places here, love them all no real favorite yet. Keep up the American Dream!

Re: “The Importance of Why

Really nice job, Grant. It's great to see the Common Core explained, and to get an in-the-classroom look at how teachers are implementing it—especially since there has been so much negative commentary about it.

Re: “Richmond Reflects

"So, there's this issue of what's going to happen to our democracy and I think one of the things we can do is really support it locally, and the role the university plays in that is fairly significant."

If university campuses, or their executives, ever actually cared about democracy, they would have addressed the abysmal 10% turnout rate for student voting decades ago.

Here's a rare resource for relevant questions to ask in the future:…

Re: “HSU Conference Focuses on Addiction, Social Change

It's astounding how many records Humboldt County holds in so many distressing areas, yet, without a conference, a catastrophe, or local expert with the guts to speak out, each record-high statistic is reported separate from the others before disappearing for years as the problems worsen.
