Chilling piece but definitely in tune with the disturbing trends. Talk of media assuming non-profit status may have some merit, but corporations, others still will have to keep the money flowing. Government support probably would lead to all kinds of
chicanery and political tamperng.
What are the Poynter folks and other media think tanks suggesting to ensure the survival of the kind of "public trust" media that is becoming extinct? It would be interesting to know.
Humbodt County has something unique, grand, enduring (if developers go away). Ms. Walters' article shows how compromise upon compromise leaves nothing worth saving for future generations. Get a life, Humboldt Count, save the best of what God gave you. JAS
Reading HW's piece reminded me of some of the visual scenes of your area that were captured in columns of the "Old Dropout," the late Max Gilroy.
Putting folks back to work on much-need infrastructure projects should be among solutions for economic recovery. That, and following the slogan of a financial consultant in our area, "Save more, spend less." JAS
Interesting story...comprehensive but clear -- the kind of environmental writing that's rare in today's dwindling print media. The author does a consistently fine job. You Journal folk are lucky to have her and several other outstanding writers on the payroll.
A fine comprehensive story of the local industry, people and insights into their personalities and plans. One feels like a local, with first-hand perspectives on the concerns of neighbors and others affected by the shutdown. Another great job by HW.
