Re: “Eureka City Council

Come and watch Eureka locals piss and moan about the homeless and get policies and ordinances passed that punish the poorest most vulnerable men, women and children.

HSU?

He'd better get a lawyer.

Re: “Eureka Seeks Dismissal of PalCo Marsh Lawsuit; Plaintiffs Look to Make it a Class Action

No one can call it "camping" when people have no alternatives. They are homeless, living on the Palco Marsh.

Who in their rightful mind would go "camping" on cold, damp, toxic soil under threat of arrest?

Re: “Poet Laureate Dana Gioia Reading and Lecture

If it doesn't inspire personal action against climate change is it really "poetry"?

Re: “Maybe Next Year

The NCJ's periodic tenacity is the only public-interest print media in this county aside from EcoNews.

Thank you.

The widely ignored 2013-14 Humb. Co. Grand Jury also expressed concerns about how at-risk children are being defaulted to police officers who are untrained to handle children and have no requirement for training...add that to our community's other defaults to cops in handling victims of mental illness, drug addiction, rape, and homelessness.

How many other at-risk kids are being detained by police?
Where are they being taken?
What are the outcomes?
What are the alternatives?

"...they (media) navigate(d) through the biggest recession to ever hit this country short of the Great Depression." (JUDY HODGSON)

"Depression"?

Surely you mean "Fire Sale".

Not one media source in this county has reported the number of home foreclosures since the crash began in 2008! Since then, few Eureka neighborhoods remain owner-occupied and our cities are grappling with record homelessness, addiction, suicide, child abuse, and youth unemployment.

I wonder how many people would start subscribing if journalists were allowed, once again, to "connect the dots", "follow the $", and focus on reporting news that's relevant to the searing issues people are facing everyday in our communities?

Instead, most Americans were hammered by 12 months of 24/7 coverage of a primary election in which 80% of potential voters abstained.

Re: “Fast and Reckless

Thank you for that information.

It's no longer unusual to learn about critical public-interest advocacy from the blogs, not the media.

If Southern CA. is any indication it will take much suffering, violence, and environmental collapse before enough people learn the extent of the problem and take action to protect fresh water sources.

Re: “What Does the EPD Have to Hide?

Wow.

Thank You.

Re: “Fast and Reckless

"California is one of the last states in the nation to regulate ground water".

Despite a drought, climate change, and biodiversity collapse, these supervisors will do nothing to regulate ground water because it threatens "growth".

Yes, the same gibberish they used to justify spending their first term undermining years of public workshops for the purpose of deregulating development for their campaign contributors in the development industry.

Let's wait until we have a few major fires, violence over water extraction rights, and city water that needs treatment facilities we can't afford.

Each supervisor took turns appointing members of the development industry to the planning commission, one of Bohn's first actions in office was to get rid of planning commissioner Denver Nelson who called for water carrying capacity studies decades ago.
