I happened to have dinner with (actually, incidentally next to, at the sushi bar) the person who made this happen just last night. At the time she said that she had just inked the deal and that the official announcement had not yet been made. When I got home it was all over facebook. This is good for us. Now that we (the big regional/royal we) have successfully marketed our airport to the airlines we need to start working on marketing our airport to passengers. It's not that "Arcata-Eureka" isn't a catchy name but something like "Redwood Coast Regional Airport" would be more descriptive.
More of a question than a comment really: Obviously shopping at places fulling owned locally is good locally, but what about franchises? Is it good for the local economy if we shop at Ace Hardware, Do-It-Better, Subway, McDonald's or Porter Street?
