Re: “Eureka to Hold Special Meeting on Homelessness

Anyone that is homeless and is going to be at risk. We as a society have to figure out some solution for these people. Any one could be in this condition.

Re: “It's time for an Opportunity Village

I feel for the sick and the elderly. I see young adults and it seems they have picked this lifestyle. When your older and you have a young man or woman that is very capable of working asking you for money its disturbing. Also you have the drug use that makes it even more complicated. I think there is much more to it than just a housing village. You would really need to screen who could and couldnt live there. Then what would happen to the drug addicted young person still living homeless by choice? There are lots of issues. With the elderly and sick it would be easy to offer housing but there not the real problem.

Re: “On Grass

I have a different take.


Uri, with Manila neighbors and fellow equestrians saw a problem (blowout in the Rudd Property fore dune) and used their time and initiative to do do their best to alleviate the problem with

Manila CSD disassembled the repairs. What the hell! Is anyone paying attention to our coastlines resilience? My hat is off to Uri and the others who are working for stability, paying attention. Heartfelt thanks to you.
County is the Responsible Party (CEQA) I am not sure what is going-on there,
but whatever it is let us hope for a recognition of our Wildlife and Wetland Habitat,
before it is lost.

Re: “More GMO Letters

Any article that would show the nonexistent ""anti-gmoscience"" would be fictitious and using false balance to spread the balderdash of anti -g.e. fear mongerers. Any journalist who stands up to this bunk is to be commended. Thye factual way to present the anti-g.e. side in a balanced way is to say "this is false.

Re: “On Grass

Linda and I both enjoy the dunes and care about them. What should be noted is the change in management that has been taking place without any public process.

Original permits recognized that erosion and destabilization would occur after digging out the naturalized grasses unless specific mitigation measures were adhered to. The disregard for those requirements has subsequently left a lot of erosion and destabilized dunes. That should be of particular concern with projected sea level changes and increased storm intensities.
Instead we are somehow being fed a spin that this erosion and destabilization is somehow beneficial to us with nothing to back such a ridiculous claim.

Meanwhile several significant University studies done by our neighbors to the north all point to the benefit that our beach grass provides for coastal protection and to Native plants! Our very own Andrea Pickart (92) wrote that the beachgrass builds extensive wetlands. Simple math will tell us that subtracting the grass will give us less wetlands.

Since many of these issues have been brought up, those still intent on stripping our dunes have refused to engage in a public forum to address these legitimate concerns. FOD would take great strides in gaining credibility if they would support what they had agreed to years ago, transparent and open engagement with the public.

To suggest this is about riding horses is flat out ridiculous. But it should be noted that our "Friends" tried very hard to close long established trails until the county made it clear that doing so was illegal.

Re: “Flash Fiction 2014

I was left feeling like I could have picked 99 words out of just about anything and won. Cute, but meaningless. How about something under 500 words? Or 1000? Flash fiction should be short, but still develop the elements of a story, not just a cutesy little snippet.

Re: “'The Revolution Starts Here'

Regulate it like they do broccoli. Unless they want kids getting stoned, instead of eating it like they should be.

Studies are clear, GOP lied, presented false studies to justify their ninth amendment violating actions, and it was because cannabis is a vital nutrient, people will get sick if their body never gets the CBD's and cannabinoids in cannabis. Corrupt industrialists and chemical manufacturers can profit on that misery, and they do!!!

Very well written. Nothing here we cannot solve if we can cooperate and compromise for the long-term economic benefit of Humboldt County.

Re: “When the Waters Rose

I like your paper. Try to get it every week. I really liked the article on the 1964 flood. My sister lived in Arcata at the time. She was in Town And Country Trailer Park. They were evacuated out because of the flooding. Both my nephews were less than 3 and sick with scarlet fewer.
