I have had three distinct encounters, each of which has been life-changing.
The content of the paper, be it editorial or advertising, is ultimately our responsibility. We regret running the image at all and apologize for any hurt or offense it may have caused. The North Coast Journal takes sexual assault very seriously, as we hope our past and continuing coverage shows, and the same goes for copyright law.
Really ? I reported sexual assault of my daughter to you in 2006 and you DID not even interview me
Great article! Ain't none of us really "from" around there, unless we are part Mattole, Weott, Sinkyone, etc. When I moved to Salmon Creek in 1992 I had no idea it was pot central; just trying to live free, grow food and get water out of the ground. I feel fortunate to have happened to get an interest in the parcel through which the Stansberry road leads down from Wilder Ridge. Haven't had the pleasure of living there or meeting many of the neighbors yet. I hope to meet you someday!
Good job. "..the main problem isn't the who, but the what." Great line when referring to the industry we all love but hate at the same time.
great piece Linda, being of the Polish persuasion I appreciate the support LOL
Really nice piece Linda. Thank you.
sb277 is insane, unconstitutional, illegal, and the work of drug companies paying politicians to get it passed. it smells worse than a decomposing body.
I don't know why there is a debate about this. Mandating chemical injections is obscene and criminal.
Nice to read some actual journalism. Well done explanation of a complicated and charged issue.
Firstly, this law, while well intended, was enacted out of panic and without sufficient research into its ramifications.
Secondly, while the new law technically "continues to honor and accept exemptions for medical reasons" it changed how those medical exemptions have to be recorded and what type of medical exemption is acceptable. The medical exception for my 12-year-old is no longer valid as it does not conform to the new rules.
Esteban fixed me an Enchilada al Pastor this afternoon and when I told him that it was as good as anyting I could make (a compliment I don't often voice)....he grinned happily, thrust his leathery hand across the counter and thanked me. He and his story remind me of my grandparents who came here from Italy, worked hard, built a restaurant around my Nonna's excellent cooking, and established the legendary Big Four Inn--- a superb entry in our culinary history. Thanks NCJ for pointing me toward Esteban!
Interesting that the late filers lucked out of the list..
I suggest Floyd Squires takes on these tenants until he repays the city for all his infractions and back taxes. Just saying.
I would've testified too... Smh...I wonder how many others there are. I'm glad this happened. Thanks to those who stood up. I didn't know.
GOOD! I was Boycotting the Businesses that Advertised on them anyway!
Hopefully the agreement didn't include payments, since most all of the billboards were placed illegally and without permission. Caltrans, the agency responsible for managing placement of the billboards, should have taken care of this long ago. It took the Coastal Commission to hold their feet to the fire and deal with them.
Call Melinda Petersen at city hall. ShE can direct you where you can be of the most help. Thank you.
I would like to volunteer to help with this effort. How can I do that? I worked as a housing navigator in Santa Cruz for our housing first initiatives there.
Our police need to be fighting crime.
The homeless need stable houses.
The reddest state in the union (Utah) saved taxpayer's money providing modest apartments instead of emergency services and they nearly ending chronic homelessness in just a few years.
Consider alcohol regulations, which require public notices on storefronts and additional notice to neighbors for on- and off-site sale applications. The argument that some growers may be placed at risk is countered by the equally compelling argument that non-growers have a right to know about commercial operations in their neighborhoods that may impact them very directly. As a recovering journalist, I'll come down on the side of the public's right to know every time.
If people are serious about wanting to come into the light ... well, guess what: Public records are public for assorted good reasons. Business licenses, CUP applications, court filings, delinquent taxes, irate emails to board members and/or county staff ... all very much public record, as will be your state licensing status. Commercial cannabis licensing and personal privacy rights are mutually exclusive concepts. You can choose one or the other, but not both.
