The rest of the story:
Not one word about "water carrying capacity studies"??
Not one word about California's laws governing wells and the absence of inspections?
Had this county ever-once elected a majority of supervisors whose attention isn't focused on their contributor's anti-regulation agenda, we could have had water carrying capacity studies begun decades ago when they were first being demanded by those "crazy environmentalists".
At the very least, all future rural developments must be predicated upon their impacts to the fresh water sources they will extract and leach into.
Great column this week, Grant! Kevin Jodrey wrote an article recently on CBDs as well http://www.theganjier.com/2014/05/27/why-c…
I love her work, the unique medium and attention to detail... The giraffe in her studio is amazing. Making a mental note to ensure Sewell is on our journey around old town this Saturday evening. Also, Wiregami.com is available.
If the NCJ included the Mckinleyville Central Market in its reporting it would have been the first we've heard about it. We'll check it out soon. It also would be nice to read about the union-drive at ENF and why the owners are fighting it.
This is typical mainstream "news" that confines important community stories to their narrowest "positive" human interest value to please advertisers.
This is about 2 empires and their travails, now move along...

Great... now I can see both comments. Sorry... I'm posting from a phone.
I know for a fact that the ace building sold at auction. I do not know where or if it was advertised. Does anyone on the ncj staff know? I know for a fact that Kevin from ace was outbid on his own building. Why was my previous comment deleted?
The Journal has had many
Heidi Walters as one of the few!And Judy sticks her neck
out on occasion---
For a "liberal" that was a pretty reactive rant.. directed at an excellent and openminded writer. Picky-Picky, Ms. DeRoy
My understanding is that the gentleman who owns Ace was outbid at a very quietly held auction.
I just did my shopping at McKinleyville Central Market today. 2 cases of coconut water, some awesome cheese I havent tried before, and all the fixings for an awesome picnic. The smoothie was great too. I will continue to SHOP MOM N POP
We love shopping at the McKinleyville Central Market! Evan and Megan rock. Why no mention of their plight if ENF comes to McKinleyville? Littlefield finally makes it to town after he buys a building? If he can't bother to get to know our town, we won't bother shopping there either. Central Avenue Market has great prices, terrific service, and it's a family operation. Their prices beat the Co-op's, Wildberries, and frequently ENF.
I don't get why Kevin didn't buy the Ace building.... obviously he's got the money if he can buy raw parcels and build to suit himself.
I'm still surprised Ryan didn't take some credit, as he did for the federal courthouse, which was being planned long before he got elected.
Off the top of my head, the Gang of Four was a Chinese political faction in the sixties (referenced in the headline over the letter, above), the name of a band a few decades back, and the term given, also a few years back, to the originators of Design Patterns, an object oriented programming paradigm. I wouldn't be surprised if the phrase has not been used historically in other contexts as well. I'm thinking as long as Ms. Walters was writing about four people and not say 3 or 5, what exactly the fooforah is four :)
@Djromero. Jeff Joseph was not convicted by a jury, he also was never convicted of or even charged with sales to a minor. It was all bs to try to and make the public against medicinal marijuana. What Jeff was convicted of and he never even plead guilty to was 2 counts of marijuana sales, and 2 counts of money laundering. On these charges he did not even enter a plea of guilty, he plead no contest. Of course he was selling marijuana, he operated a marijuana dispensary. And in the state of California this is and was legal, he broke no law there. And on the money laundering it was because he accepted cash as a payment for the marijuana. Jeff did nothing wrong, the DEA wanted to shut down Californias medicinal marijuana stores and Jeff was one of the unfortunate ones who the feds used to scare people. And if you say oh well if he wasnt guilty he should not have plead no contest, he should ha e went to trial. Well its easy to say that when the feds are not threatening you with fifteen years if you lose. He had to plead no contest the feds dont lose they have too much money so he took the deal. Jeff Joseph was a good man who after seeing the benefits that medical marijuana provided his dying father decided he wanted to try to bring some relief to other sick people who needed relief. So to me this sums the whole situation up perfectly it goes like this: Alice realized the court room; with the icons of a justice system – a judge, jury, witnesses – was really a sham that mocks a legitimate legal process. To confirm her realization the King said after the meaningless secret poetry evidence, that it was “the most important piece of evidence” and “Let the jury consider their verdict.” The Queen retorts “No, no! Sentence first; verdict afterwards.”
McKinleyville Central Market. I know it when it had a carpeted floor and was empty. I know it when it was a dream after a young man decided to stay after a beautiful college experience. When getting in a truck and driving hundreds of miles for shelving meant a day spent with open windows and Jerry Garcia on the radio. I know it when it was okay to get no sleep because the excitement of painting the next day outweighed the exhaustion.
When "we're getting our first order and the truck is huge" and I can't wait to unpack everything and I wished I was there. I know he loves his customers because I know each and everyone one of you from his stories. Evan and Megan are what McKinleyville need. They have a heart as big as the moon. How do I know this? I was the one who waved good-bye to a young man in 2003 packed up in a Smurf blue Chevy. And as he drove away to start a new life he said to me "Mom, I don't know where I am going but when I get there it will be home." McKinleyville is Evan & Megan's home. Please support.
Sorry for sounding so angry about this article, but I get so discouraged by the big guy running all over the hard working honest small businessman. It just seems to be the norm these days. The almighty dollar has replace honor, integrity, understanding. No wonder so many of our youth are losing those important values we were raise to believe were the right thing to live by. Looks like eating healthy doesn't mean living healthy spiritually.
Hey ENF.... try Fortuna... they don't have one yet... or are you gonna wait until someone does your work for you and discovers they eat organics too...
NCJ - why didn't you guys even investigate how this new BIG BOX style project will effect Mack Town or it's existing businesses. Is it a different story or something...? I don't think so...!!!! If you want us to continue reading your rag, do some REAL research and reporting.... shees!
