It would be more convincing to pull that "plausible deniability" crap had Bohn's not been the only 2 campaigns to be accompanied by it...ever!
The fliers claim they're funded by the candidates they endorse..oh, but lets blame somebody named "George".
Unless there's an investigation from community-interest media, like the NCJ did in 2004, no one will know for sure...not even "Duh".
If local media educated the communities they "serve" Jane Fish's excellent synopsis (above) would be clear to all.
Furthermore, Walmart is merely bigger and badder, their record exposed an entire industry!
Communities cannot economically sustain unlimited numbers of poverty-wage, part-time, temporary jobs.
Neither can a nation.
America's current boom in predator industries; big boxes, dollar stores, Rent-To-Own, bail bonds, check cashing, rental agencies, pawn shops, job scalpers and storage units, cannot sustain an economy 70% dependent upon consumption.
Girard, the Planning Commission and supervisors, should have been going on the offensive long ago, especially considering the contentious tenure of Conlon, by reaching out aggressively to media to keep citizens informed on planning issues that a tiny, landed minority is always whining about in every county in California.
It's as if the state's largely impaired and depleted wetlands, tributaries, rivers, and the diminishing biodiversity dependent upon them, hasn't already happened throughout California; it’s as if developers haven’t already built our cities beyond infrastructure capacity for homes beyond the reach of 75% of local incomes; it’s as if moratoriums for one city after another wasn’t enough warning for our representatives to say NO MORE before the entire county faces a moratorium! And all we get from Arkley’s lobbyist Kay Backer, and her local speculator cheer-squad, is that we must continue the legacy of social engineering by the highest bidder for the love of property rights, God, Mom, and apple pie!!!???
Their "freedoms" to harvest the public's infrastructure or to mine our headwaters, should have ended long before their activities repeated the same, predictable history of greed and its profound negative impacts upon the citizens subsidizing it.
Give 'em hell Kirk, and thank you Mr. Burns.
Isn't it about time for a NCJ follow-up on "Interested Parties" by John Osborn??
This is the ONLY mainstream article ever published in Humboldt County exposing the stranglehold our greedy development community maintains over local election financing.
Not according to 99% of Hollywood movies, mainstream media, TV, magazines, and local newspapers sharply focused upon every tic of the Dow Jones and every expert thereof.
The result is a population willing to defend their delusions to the death.
It festers as a testament to a community still dominated by a tiny elite of old boys who plopped a nuclear plant across the street from an elementary school on two fault lines in the county's most populated area.
Their legacy endures.
Michael's great, but I will defer to the experts who understand that these casks will not store the material indefinitely.
I wonder if PG&E will send their employees door-to-door to keep the material here, just as they once did to emplore voters to keep the plant open.
It all about my FREEDOM to undermine my own rural economy, and Walmart's FREEDOM to a public-subsidized workforce!
Good point about Target and Kmart parking lots that are 25% full, on good days.
Better yet, Walmart's average pay is probably $2.00/hour after you include the children making that crap.
Walmart's "low prices" expire with their competition.
IT'S THEIR M.O.!!!
For right-wingers, Walmart is a win-win:
More poverty-wage jobs means growth in predator industries like pawn shops, check cashing, rent-to-own, bail bonds, storage units, rental agencies and job scalpers, which means even more welfare and social services that Tea-baggers love to whine about.
