"arcata bottom" not "bottoms" ;-) peace
evan: i truly appreciate your observations of the hatred cultivated by the local govt employees. they are clearly not being unbiased and not being fair. perhaps they need some education and instruction from their supervisors about their roles in society.
re: verbena. i agree with joel. it is surprising that people are criticizing her over this photo. she sure gives us so much more to criticize about that is more substantive. (someone needs to inform her that sitting down is actually making her sciatica worse: something like 250% of your body weight is applied to your spine when you sit. it is better to stand or walk’). so, sitting down due to sciatica is a farce at best (as anyone who knows anything about sciatica would recognize; i am well experienced with this). laying down is certainly not helping either... maybe walking more and stretching.
if we want to critique verbena, lets begin with substance (and how she has been really good at destroying the credibility of the occupy peace movement, to the extent that there is an offshoot of occupy that has chosen to meet in trinidad).
i am not here to criticize her, i would rather focus on the positive. so, thanks again evan for your assessment of the perspective from those employees at the courthouse and how they need to be educated more about their roles in society (that they clearly do not understand).
oh, and this article seems to be rather short and one-sided. it is largely a commercial for wal mart. i expect more from our local journalists! i read it and still do not believe it. next time, please write with more journalistic zest please. please be a journalist akin to 60 minutes of the 1970's... (no that corporate news has anything on small news organizations), i just want more balanced coverage of such big news.
perhaps there will be a front page story about this in the NCJ soon that delves into the various aspects of what wal mart has done in other cities/communities, what has happened here in Humboldt in regard to wal mart (in the last decade or so), and what wal mart might mean to the local economy/community. after reading the article, one might think that the coming of wal mart to the mall is a good thing. i cannot think of one good result of this (with the big picture in my mind).
well, as if our economy was not already hurting, this news is rather bleak. it is ironic that the people who benefit most from the low prices are the most economically hurt by this business as this business relies on social welfare systems to support their employees. this company has a history of racist and sexist management styles. i sincerely hope this store does not open in humboldt. what horrible news.
