And yet, in his 3 minute testimony in front of the Planning Commission, (days before being seated as a member), McKenny cried Crocodile tears for "the poor homeowners that I will represent battling restrictive and costly regulations trying to get that 3rd bedroom addition for their mother because they can't afford a retirement home".
Obviously, the people that coach Humboldt County's political owners were the same one's behind Big Timber crying...."If you pass regulations against clear-cuts, you won't be able to cut a tree in your yard"...."If you pass regulations against herbicides, you won't be able to dump that can of motor oil behind your house"...."If you pass regulations to stop slash burning, you won't be able to have that burn barrel".
Big land owners are still doing all those things as they wished, but its average residents that are (rightfully) regulated in cutting redwoods, dumping oil and burning garbage.
If there was a local reporter that still retained a rational sense of proportion, McKenny's speech would have been a front-page story covering patented BS from appointed representatives.
It's important to point out that Ulansey and Morris are more than just HumCPR's "former" founders, they are also very wealthy real estate investors. They're not mom n' pop back to the landers. They're real estate moguls.
A very telling question to ask every individual member of the board of supervisors and planning commission would be which of the initial Options A-D do they favor of the former, simplified, plain language guide to the GPU that was, for some strange reason, completely scrapped?
It's tough to cover local corruption in less that 10,000 words when there's only one local paper willing to allude to it once or twice a year.
Allan Dollison's was disciplined by the California State Bar for stealing from his clients. Check out the California State Bar web site and read the details. He is not fit to be the District Attorney. Moral turpitude is a fatal character defect and one which proves he is unfit to seek or hold the highest law enforcement office in Humboldt County
A good investment. I paid my money and the black helicopters only bother me two or three times a day, now. The advanced course ($29.95 per week) promises to get the Communists out from under my bed. I'd sign up but I'm worried about who - or what - is under the Communists.
Apparently, misconceptions about MJ use and side-effects are lingering alongside misconceptions about the nation's biggest "welfare sucks" that remain the largest U.S. corporations.
Since the 1984 General Plan is still the basis of planning and regulatory decisions in Humboldt County, it is important to clarify a comment in this story. It was not a patchwork "fix" of the 1964 plan. That plan was done by the lowest bidding, out of town consultant(s) that left the County without any of the most basic information on the basis of the plan(s - there were 3 for North, South and Mid County). The 1984 adoption of the Framework General plan culminated a THREE year work program initiated by the Board, done all by County staff, of which I am proud to have been a part. There were workshops on all of the major components of the plan, and there were "plenty" of hearings at the Planning Commission and the Board around the County and through 1983 that necessitated the adoption of the Plan in early 1984.
That plan became "outdated" because the Board removed the budget for regularly scheduled quarterly amendments to focus on doing the McKinleyville Community Plan (again). The balance of communities in the County lost their opportunity for "local" participation in planning - except for the Avenue of the Giants, the last Community Plan.
I guess that all of this and my view from the distance of retirement leads me to ask three questions:
1. What was really "wrong" with the 1984 Plan and how was that "fixed" in the current draft? And,
2. What is the mechanism, and where will the budget be, to update the current community plans (most also from the '80's) and to address the needs of those communities that were listed, but not addressed then? And,
3. What is the "plan" and the budget to implement this current draft? The current Board of Supervisors has a LOT of hard work ahead of them.
Thank you for considering my comments.
Oh Creator please reach those who will be without Fathers Freed's help now. I Loved this man as a person who stood in defiance of the devil even in the face of danger. Because of his faith and his true service to the cause I am certain he is with our Lord Creator. I was a victum of the CIA backed Jose Efrain Rios Montt that was sent to the lighthouse ranch so to make it look like he was saved there and sent out as a legit priest. ( Obviously he wasnt). Father Freed (a blessed man of humanity and God had been exposing the involvement and reporting the eye witness accounts of the Gautamalan Genocide and years the of deception and horror. Father Freed had helped many from other horrorable genocides to tell there story. Through his ministry and his books, there lives started to heal some, from the murder,then the wonder of how a church could send a hitler after a culture of blamless innocent Mayan indians and kill them all if he could. Infact he took 6 missioaries I knew against a brick wall and shot each in there head- dead in front of the entire village before he ordered his general to bury the entire village alive. Pat Roberson and other churches including my Jim Dirkens- G.O. went with the devil as CIA involvement even in twisting the churches away from there original doctrine and purpose distroyed the lives of many americans here as well. The Lighthouse as you know is gone. and the bloggs about what a great guy Montt is has been rapidly vanishing from there web sites. No call to regroup or repent. Just a huge list of people victumized by the leadership of the ministry that were wrongly sent away and spiritualy harmed seems all thats left. The truth is being covered up. I feel Freed was possibly killed for that reason and not due to just what seems a drunk did. People please pray for the victums,the truth to be exposed, the churches, and for all like Father Freed whom stood boldly to help even knowing this may happen. Maybe it was just as it looks. But, as history is being covered up,will what happened to this saint also be left as such. If all the proff shows this could be likly yet there is a big "Air" of words against people thinking such things out;you can bet it is them...the CIA. P.S. It was my aunt and uncle from Virginia that was used to bring Montt with them to the ranch to apparently case the place out in april of 1977. I got the goods on many of the devils and is the reason I suppose,that I'd been shot at 4 times. And 3 as a missionary for G.O., sowas it just some drunk. A coincidence? Pray and ask God to show you the light. Lightning has a habit of not striking twice in the same place.
Wow,it seems miss Coosbee has a real bug up her but these days.I will be in town later this spring to discuss the Montt-CIA Genocide/Eureka lighthouse -G.O.;connection to this case and others.Please feel free to to bring your church people involved in hiding the Verbo/Gospel Outreach, Jose Montt CIA, Genocidal priest of Gospel outreach; connection with you to my meeting(to be date and place givin later). Im certain as all hell,that several members are infact CIA infiltraters and traitors to the cause of the gospel,God,the earth, mankind,and yes this nations great intentions of equality.(And still linger with you with the intent of shutting down the truth when someone like me or anyone with the truth and a conscience stands in bravery to face the enemy. He murdered 250,000people and is now waiting trail for genocide again this April. Thank you.
SR 169 does not go all the way through to Crescent City. It is unconstructed between Johnsons and Klamath. The only option would be to drive over to I-5 and take it north to US 199 in Oregon and come back down.
Nomatter what is said of the LIGHT HOUSE RANCH @ the bluff. It was like heaven to me. I lived their in the middle of the 70's. Those that were true to the word & christians shared Love & forgiveness to me. There was a peace in that place. People came & went and did not take GOD seriously. But I was blessed @ the lighthouse Ranch!
Maureen if you should ever see this, I love you more then words can say & Miss you so!
Did the Earthquake in Eureka affect the Atomic Waste stored at PG&E Humboldt Bay Nuclear Power plant? Is it still contained? Did it leak? How would anyone find out? If you know contact me: gregvan[at]yahoo[dot]com
I'm really really apprehensive after reading this article, regarding providers not taking Covered Ca. plans. Before ACA, I was paying $330/mo for individual coverage. I signed-up with Anthem under CC, with a subsidy, but now it looks like I may need to pay about $600/mo (i.e. similar plan but not under C.C.) if I want access to providers other than Open Door system!?!? Help!
"this is just another example of the gov trying to enforce the mommy laws"
I do not believe this is a Mommy laws as you refer to it. I believe, as most look for the long-term effects of cannabis on our lives. I feel it should be legalized, but I want and hope those who are more knowledgeable of the facts than I am to look into the effects. Should it be regulated as alcohol and cigarettes? Who knows, yet?
Either way, to transport goods (legal or not) to sell across State lines is against the law, yes? It has been this way since it was passed in Congress before we were born.
There are a lot on mommy laws, but at this time, I do not think regulating the transportation of cannabis across State lines for sale is one of them.
this is just another example of the gov trying to enforce the mommy laws.until we stop trying to impress/repress/ the mommy of the world the little boys/girls will try to bully us into doing what the old woman think we should do. there is only one way to change it un-elect all the folks in-charge. I'll see y'all Halloween and we will see what we can dream up about it.
till then pleasant dreams
Slanted coverage. Scott-Goforth finds it necessary to describe Kerrigans supporters as "lefties" and mis-categorizes his speech as Eureka-centric because he used the word "Eureka" once. The entire speech was about the county as a whole. What is the authors problem?
"with a smattering of fish biologists"......love it............coho, ho!
Interesting about that IQ study: http://www.hightimes.com/read/pot-iq-flawe…
I meet a lot of people who wish they hadn't started smoking pot quite so early in life; and others who seem to do just fine with it (like Steve Jobs, who started at least four industries and was a teenage pothead). For Brown to say "potheads" can't work 24 hours a day...well, I guess that's his new model for the workplace. Most adult marijuana smokers work, pay taxes, and should have the right to smoke a joint in the evening, and be free of insults from their elected officials.
Anyone familiar with New Zealand knows it is an ultra-conservative, nationalistic, right-wing religious and intolerant nation. Its jails are full of kids that smoked pot. Travel from Humboldt County and they will tear your baggage apart upon arrival and departure.
Governor Brown is elated to have MJ to focus upon instead of leadership.
There's few other explanations for the level for concern over 8 percentage points of IQ when the largest growth in jobs are part-time, temporary, uninsured, poverty wages, where a "public" university costs a year's salary in tuition, where there's insufficient affordable housing, healthcare and public services, in effect, the reason so many youths are filling jails, emergency rooms, rehab centers, committing suicide and yes...smoking pot...
