Mielke at his sardonic best.
A great, amusing and informative piece. Still chuckling.
Larry Glass is without a doubt the ballsiest guy to hit Humboldt County since Bret Harte stood up to the Eureka powers-that-be over a hundred years ago (Google it!). You are a great friend and mentor and I look forward to many more years of you kicking ass and taking names in our sweet, sweet county! Peace!
This is an encouraging sign of all that is great about Eureka, taking steps toward midwifing the rebirth of its fishery. I look forward to having a few oysters down there on a cold and clear spring afternoon sometime soon.
Took a walk down there last week with my father in law and saw the enormous potential of the vacant lot between the F Street boardwalk and the new Fishermans Terminal (including the old Eureka Coop building with the mural on the side, looking more and more like a tear-down these days). I saw the sign touting the hotel for the site being put together by Vellutini/Ash - when is that expected to be finished? Just a thought: the regional competition swim complex proposed for the Halverson Park site would be perfect for that large vacant space, with its excellent access to Old Town food and shopping for visiting swim competition families.
Great piece, amazing guy - such a slice of Humboldt. This county freakin' rocks!
Great column, Jada. Made me pine for my mom's home cooking and midnight trips to Canter's Deli on Fairfax after punk shows in the 80's...
My mom grew up in the Jewish Ghetto in Los Angeles, when there still was one (before the diaspora, following the end of WWII). Check out the great film "The Jews of LA" for more history on Jewish Angelenos, who go back to the Jewish cowboys who were among the first fifty or so people to found Los Angeles, 300 years ago (true!).
Proud to be a 2nd generation Jewish Angeleno!
Yes, I too enjoyed this thoughtful editorial. It's a bit unreal - you can actually read the Journal now without encountering "editorial snark" every two sentences. Bravo!
