Kiss off any meaningful economic development if the county loses commercial air service.

Re: “When the Waters Rose

I remember it well. My dad, who worked as an investigator for the DMV, had a CB unit in our home. He helped relay messages for days. Afterwards, he had to get around the country to do his job, crossing the rivers with washed-out bridges via temporary ferries. We knew the people who owned the Jewel Box, a redwood souvenir shop, down in Phillpsville. I'll always remember going to visit them and seeing the inside of their shop up to the tabletops in mud. They raised the building up off the foundations and carried on for some years, then retired. The building is much changed but still visible as you drive south on 101. Also remember seeing an entire barn shoved back into the trees next to the road.

Re: “Port of Call Eureka

It's....Groundhog Day. Does anyone remember going through all this in the 1990s? I do. Eureka went down this road already with the hosts, tours, acitivities, attending marketing conferences to pitch the city to cruise lines, etc. When a few ships actually stopped by, the passengers mostly didn't even bother to get off the boat, particularly the one luxury ship that stopped here. A lot of local people, including me, spent a lot of time, effort and money to make local products and offerings available in what ultimately was a waste of all three. Help me to understand what has changed since then that will result in a different outcome this time.

Re: “Arkley's 'Dog Ranch' on the Market

Hope this is a trend that will continue. The sooner he sells out and leaves Humboldt County, the better. Good luck to the Friends of the Dunes on their efforts to preserve this land.

Re: “McKinleyville Natural Foods?

Uh, McKinleyville already has an excellent natural foods store, McKinleyville Central Market. We shop there all the time. The owners are great people and provide equally great service with a personal touch, like letting us call in for local eggs or Brio bread and holding them for us until we can come in later in the day to pick them up. REAL old-fashioned service. Stunned that Greenson appears to have missed the fact of their existence, much less not interviewed them. We'll continue to give our business to them.
