    Re: “APD to "Significantly Increase Police Presence" for Plaza Halloween

    It's like playing whack-a-mole, but we try to weed out foreign spammer/scammers like Coach Factory Online. Local spammers like Uma R we tend to leave alone. BTW, Uma shares an ISP address with ATTN, Grunge Punkster, Toby Smokes Crack, Normal, Portly Petra, ILuvArcata, Peckerwood and Roberto Saschina, so what appears to be a clutch of anarchy is actually just one loner ranting at his/her keyboard. And a whole nother set of made up commenters - Norton, Wicked Wanda, (fake) Beau Devito, Praise God and War, Blood Red Wine, Yo Bama, LaFlatita, Beeeiiittthhhh, Bald Heads Unite!, Mr Dynomight, Gene Roberts, Wom Man Lovers, speedy 50, SPEEDY, FireworkMcKs, Zackster, J Man, Demon Seeds, Huff da Paint, CRITTER, WeedLvr, and more, also seem to be the same person.

    Re: “Ice Cream You Scream

    Regarding franchises, my googling and Ann's "three stores" comment: I just got off the phone with Melissa Hannan, who owns the Arcata and Eureka Ultimate Yogurt shops with her husband (turns out there are only two, not three or four). She's from Humboldt, attended school in Eureka, but now lives in Brookings (her husband is from there), so they have a business office up there, but no yogurt shop. They briefly rented an office in Crescent City, and while the record lingers on the Net, that's in the past. The upshot of all this is that it's a family business, not a franchise at all and even "distributorship" is incorrect.

    Re: “Ice Cream You Scream

    Lorna, You raised a good point regarding my use of the word "franchise,' which was perhaps inaccurate. A little research shows that Ultimate Yogurt Inc. has operations in Brookings and Crescent City in addition to two here in Humboldt County. What constitutes a "franchise" under Arcata "no new franchises" rules? I'll have to check into that.

    Re: “East-west Rail Propaganda, Anyone?

    The quote comes from the Western Web website. It was not rewritten.

    Re: “East-west Rail Propaganda, Anyone?

    the facts re: who owns the press you're so concerned about: "Western Web opened in 2005 with new, state-of-the-art equipment, great people and a passion for excellence in print production. Fueled by the quality requirements of our start up daily newspaper, we invested in the latest equipment in pre-press and press. Sadly, the newspaper fell victim to the economy and closed in 2008. Western Web continued on. On April Fool’s Day 2010 Steve and Jack purchased the assets and formed Western Web, Inc." In short, Steve and Jack own the press, not Rob.
