Re: “Jersey Boys

Great movie - not as good as seeing it on Broadway. But, totally fun, full of great music, good acting and focuses on the band's story with lots of drama and dialogue.

Re: “Big Brands

Not surprising in the least. Bill Gates is a longtime legalization advocate. Microsoft money has gone to organizations such as NORML, Seattle Hempfest, Initiative 502 (WA state weed legalization), as well as funding the construction and maintenance of the Seattle Public Library.

Re: “Piecemeal Transparency

Supporting 3 bills that limit public access while claiming they increase public access used to be the standard republican M.O.

"Democrats in name only" are the reason the democratic party has hemorrhaged members and 80% didn't vote in the 2016 primary.

Would officers be more careful discharging lethal weapons if they know the public is watching?

Would there still be executions if they were televised?

No one in the U.S. in the 19th century would have tolerated nor imagined that, one day, being drunk and violent in public justified being shot-on-sight.

Here's how a violent man with a machete was handled in the UK:…

Re: “The Curious Case of Parcel 106-101-054

I have seen the future for the Emerald Triangle.
It ain't pretty.

Corporations and other rich cretins have and are driving prices sky high.
This noted speculator is a prime example of greed making folks do stupid things.
Sadly, we regular residents will pay the many ways.

It may take a bit longer but we will also see even more obscene increased housing prices.

No longer will anyone just wanting a small piece of the countryside ever be able to make any dream come true.

No longer will anyone be able to buy their 'starter' home. Probably already can't afford one as prices are currently excessively high.

The only folks looking forward to the oncoming green rush are realtors. We know how soulless most of them are. They don't give a damn about anything but their fees and commissions.

We may have won the battle but we have lost the war....and I ain't talking about the completely worthless 'War On Drugs'.

It's only gonna get worse.
Count on it.

Re: “Pass Eric's Law

It is always challenging to write something that may be controversial. Consequently, it is really rewarding when someone as informed as Peter DeAndreis supports your effort. There are usually so many limits on free-expression that most of these things go unsaid. Thank you, Peter, for helping me to feel at least somewhat accurate.

Re: “Gardening Under the Redwoods

Thank you for this. I am about to move a little redwood volunteer to a permanent spot and needed guidance on what would thrive underneath it. I also like having a list of native plants I can look for as well.

Re: “Grand Jury Blasts Behavioral Health Board for Lack of Oversight

Now it's clear.

If the Behavioral Health Board had kept the supervisors informed about the local human health crisis, the supervisors would have cooperated with the California Attorney General's investigation of Humboldt's Child Welfare Services instead of spending that "money we don't have" on fighting to stop it.

Re: “Slow Roll

I disagree with the paving of the Arcata Marsh trails. There are other materials that can be used on trails that are natural to the area and usable by those who use a chair, walkers and other legal mobility devices. Part of the concern and bout the Trails in the marsh is the constant need for maintenance and possible new look at how the trails are laid out, but paving them would not be the thing to do.

Clam beach, according to the State Park Service has available chairs with the large wheels to travel on the beach - I have never used one because of the difficultly of transferring, but I would check in with the park service first and see what they got.

It would be nice to establish a hard surface to travel to the beach and this is a reachable goal, but it is costly and I would want to know it would be something that is not destroyed.

Friends of the Dunes are building a trail - I was old it would be accessible, but I have heard this before. I forwarded information on what is needed to be accessible and hope the advice is taken. Be nice to have access to the facility

Re: “Aggressive Hitchhiker Spotted in King Salmon

The tag, depending on color, has a number which we can track through our tag system. This is Floyd. He had been rehabilitated and released from The Marine Mammal Center down in Marin county back in May. He was becoming too comfortable around people and was relocated to Cape Mendocino last Saturday for his own protection. If anyone sees a tagged marine mammal, please call our local Northcoast Marine Mammal Center stranding line with the location of the animal at 707-951-4722.

Re: “HSU Settles Suit with Ousted Indian Program Director

What I absolutely hate about every damn lawsuit against HSU is the part where they get a gag order. They pay out as they know they are wrong but if you really stick to your morals then F the payout and let them finally get caught at everything they do.

Dan Pambianco gag order so well done sir. Expose these crooks please

Except, there's no problem or crime to "nip" Ann.

EPD needs to get off the computer and out of their cars to start addressing Eureka's record incidents of domestic abuse, child abuse, and property crime.

Re: “Fair Pay

It is irresponsible of Eureka and Humboldt County leadership to allow Eureka to suffer the underfunded services, infrastructure, and skewed statistics caused by their failure to "carry the ball" in getting Eureka's border communities incorporated.

It's the only way Eureka will get even one of its officers to live in the city they police.

How many millions of dollars in state and federal funds is Eureka losing each year because only 1/3 of its actual population is being reported? Eureka loses millions so that the rich can escape a few fees building subdivisions just "outside" city limits.

This would have been a good opportunity to report the costs of lawsuits against Eureka that resulted from excessive force by under-trained, overworked officers required to respond to the PTSD of homelessness, drug abuse, child abuse and mental illness.

Report the actual population and Eureka will have full state and federal funding for its schools, infrastructure, and an appropriate police force without their chief having to "entice" recruits by advertise the excessive number of calls each officer receives that is the result of under-staffing.
