What concerns me as a resident of Eureka,
is the proliferation of half/way houses in
Eureka that are promoting religion.
When Teen Challenge (misnomer, mostly adults on probation) came to town, the then Community Development Director sat in their revival meeting clapping his hands and saying: "Yes, Jesus". It did not matter to
him that they work the participants for free
and use our welfare services. It did not
matter to him that they were taking work from
our population. These people come from out
of town and Teen Challenge was charging $13.00 an hr. for them. No employee in town could put a person on the payroll that cheap.
We have the Mission, a religious organization and now the Catholic Charities.
If the religious issue is clouding the judgment
of those in power, then they should be recalled. Eureka is drawing in undesirable
people, our crime rate is one of the highest
in the nation. The city looks like a graveyard
for empty store fronts.
Good for those filing the lawsuit against the
I notice all of you do gooders don't live in
Eureka. Why don't you have all this goodness
and shelters down in Honeydew or would that
hurt you marijuana farming?
Cedillo the writer of Senate Bill 2 also tried
to put a bill through to open the California
and Mexico border. He also tried to get a
bill through for all the illegal Mexicans in
California to have driver's licenses.
We in Eureka are saturated with half way houses. I own property near where Chinn
wants to put her shelter. Believe me when I
tell you many of us don't want it and have
the means to stop it. We cleaned up a high
crime area and we are not going to let it go
When Chris K. was a councilperson in Eureka,
I gave him an article from a financial magazine.
A town in Germany, broke as Eureka, went to
their local college. A partnership was formed.
They then went out to every corporation in the
world that would fit into their environment and
presented a package of what the city could do for them. The bottom line was: Come to our
city, we will educate and train the personnel
you need in our college. We will give you tax
breaks. This city is now very successful.
I was taught as a child never to touch anythingwet, it could have germs and make you sick.
I have followed that advise and would nevershake hands with the slimy looking Rex Bohn, Matthew Owen or his wife Virginia Bass.
Go to March 1, 2001 in the North Coast
Journal. Cover article Eureka's
unsanitary sewers. Compare it with
today's article. Mr. Tyson was quoted
as saying the city had money in the
reserves for the Martin Slough Interceptor. Compare everything with this current article. As to proposition
218 taking away the senior discount,
it definitely calls out for fair share.
Helping lower income people can come
from the general fund and shouldn't apply to just one class of people
