"who paid hundreds of thousands of dollars for all those phony front-group mailers that bought Rex Bohn a supervisor’s seat."
What phony front-group mailers?
Would somebody please give George Clark his meds.
We were well into the lunch hour when Bass started making suggestions on how the letter to the NCRA could be strengthened — to reaffirm the board’s position that port and railroad projects are important, that the trail is only an interim use until the rail returns. She asked the staff to work through the lunch break and bring back those changes. The staff did, and the letter to the NCRA passed on a 4-0 vote. Which is even better than a 3-2 that might have been.
I was impressed. Since then I’ve heard a lot of comments privately and in emails giving kudos to Bass for chairing an emotional discussion, keeping everyone civil, and for finding a solution — a way forward.
There it is.
Supervisor Virginia Bass’ 2014 reelection theme delivered by none other than Judy Hodgson of the North Coast Journal, bastion of the far-left.
If I were Bass I’d be sending Judy Hodgson some cookies or something for that glowing endorsement.
It was the same old angry left-wing nuts.
Any wonder why the Regressives never get anything done in this town?
Since Linda Atkins is so ”ashamed to be a part of the city of Eureka” and she "waste time Tuesday nights at city council meetings”, maybe she can resign and move to Arcata.
Hank, Hank, Hank... "environmental non-profits" are you freakin' kidding me?
Try environmental "for-profits".
What do you think Baykeepers and EPIC do with their lawsuit money? Put is into cleaning the environment or put it into their lawyers pockets?
These front groups are nothing more the environmental extortionists. Plain and simple.
Better yet, why doesn't some investigative journalist do the research and find out exactly where Baykeepers and EPICs lawsuit monies go?
Do you know any investigative journalists?
"I’ve settled on “progressives” and “conservatives.”
Hank, you can't call one a "Progressive" unless they believe in progress.
Our local “progressives” should be called "Regressives" as they believe we should be moving back to the 1950s with one stop light and one grocery store and of course, one hardware store (Pierson's) in his bought & paid for world.
After all the "Regressives" have proud history and not pejorative, as you seem to suggest.
Have you read Dr. "Commodore" Ken Miller's Times Standard letter to the editor today? If you can translate that from cannabis into English, if would be much appreciated.
So Hank here's a suggestion, in the future lets call them "Regressives" and "Moderates".
Hank, Hank, Hank... what you really meant to say was that "nearly every consequential office up for grabs this year ended up in the Moderate win column."
Why do you (and other media) keeps labeling moderates as conservatives, when in reality all they did was defeat the radical-left?
Got no idea where you're going with the "Tea Partyish, Goldwateresque cadre of shock troops" comments.
If you think you can control the radical elements of the far-left or far-right, be my guest.
See the photo of Dr. "Commodore" Ken Miller in today's Times Standard?
I'll be looking forward to your "SDS, Weather Undergrounds types showing up at Eureka City Council meetings" comments in the future.
Hank, Hank, Hank... such short memory and where to start?
The California Coastal Commission has killed more jobs-producing projects on the North Coast than cancer.
Did you forget Chris Kerrigan and his ill-fated "big box ordinance" (financed by Bill Pierson)?
How about the 58 years (and counting) to remedy the Richardson's Grove by pass?
How soon we forget the Larry Glass and CREG (Citizen’s for Regressive Economic Growth) sponsoring “Imagine the Possibilities” seminar at the Wharfinger in 2007 where various people (financed by Bill Pierson) came and gave their visions of a piece of property they didn’t own, and had no money to clean up, nor develop.
How could you possibly forget Pete Nichols and the Humboldt Baykeepers, who will sue any business attempting to open shop in Humboldt County?
You failed to mention County Supervisor Mark Lovelace’s ill-advised 2010 journey to Sacramento’s State Land Commission, where he gave a PowerPoint presentation on the evils of Big Box. To which they replied, “Who are you and why are you where?”
The major point you missed is that thirteen radicals will sue, legislate or protest anything that anyone tries to accomplish here in Humboldt County.
And of course, Hank Sims refuses to write anything negative about Bill Pierson, while relishing in his latest jab at Rob Arkley.
If you want to know why the Proggies lost so bad this past Tuesday night, take a look at their so-called leadership.
Start with Bonnie losing so badly in the primaries she fired her “clipboard carrier” and hired Heraldo (AKA: Joshua Drayton) as her campaign manager.
Look no further than Andrew Bird’s election predictions:
Glass 61, Brady 39
Kuhnel 54, Manns 40, Newman 6
La Vallee 53, Jager 44, Spalding 3
Neely 51, Bass 49
Cleary 54, Sundberg 46
Look no further than the Humboldt County Democratic Central Committee (HCDCC) donating $5,000 to Bonnie Neely and $5,000 to Patrick Cleary without even asking their Democratic membership.
That’s $10,000 of my money they threw down the toilet with zero input.
Look no further than the leadership of the HCDCC, many whom are considered as joke in the local community (outside the confines of the HCDCC office).
Look no further than the Times Standard. How irrelevant has the paper become? Almost every one of their local endorsement lost.
Did the Times Standard even contact the various candidates to let them know the endorsement process for November?
Look no further than Heraldoville, where local Proggies think the average voter resides. Got some news for you. Maybe 20 people post on Heraldo as Joshua censors any comments that aren’t “drinking the kool-aid”.
When you’re posting rumors and lies on an anonymous blog, that doesn’t get mainstream media coverage.'
You have to have to basis of fact to make a public statement. Which is why Heraldoville exists for the anonymous prog trogs to make outlandish statements for their own amusement.
Look no further than Patti Berg. If that’s your local idea of a Proggie statesperson, you should really check with the average voter and not have someone who looks like the Crypt Keeper.
And finally, I’ll use Tom Peters own words, “We believe what we want. We don’t care about the truth.”
The average voter does care about the truth.
