Re: “River Robbery

I think the caption for the salamander may be incorrect. The flattened "shovel head", 5 toes on the rear foot, purple gills and dark color suggest that this is a Pacific Giant salamander. In comparison, Torrent salamanders are more slender, more golden in color, have a proportionally longer tail and more bulging eyes than Pacific Giants (Dicamptodon tenebrosus).

Re: “Fastest Route Between Eureka and Arcata Finally Determined!

Rikki, the maximum speed limit on Hwy 255 is 55 mph. Note the maximum part. One can legally drive 10 mph slower than the maximum speed. i choose to drive 50 mph in Manila because i feel that speed is safer. Sorry.
If you're in a hurry, consider leaving 5 minutes earlier. Slow down and enjoy the journey.

Re: “Drunken Confusion Leads to Fickle Hill Shooting

there was no "forcible entry" if the trespasser walked thru an unlocked door. there was no credible threat of "great bodily harm" if the trespasser was asleep on the couch. there was no indication intent to commit burglary. i speculate that the trigger happy neighbor was amped up and had his blood pumping from hurrying up the steep hill to respond to the fears of his young neighbors.
