Re: “Bigfoot and the Trolls

Not a hoax? Where's the evidence? Where's ANY evidence? Bones? Fur? There's NOTHING.

Re: “It's Business Time

Goats? Most of the cheese made at Cypress Grove is made from imported frozen curd. They could make that cheese anywhere. The tiny amount of milk bought from local dairys is just a token . It doesn't take a genius to see how much cheese is produced at CG vs the amount of milk that comes from these tiny local goat dairys, and know that the dairys can only produce a fraction of the milk or curd needed.

Re: “Rah Raw Raw

Mandatory pasteurization is prevention for problems that occurred before dairy inspections, lab tests, etc. Current legal parameters for the quality of milk legal for human consumption are strict enough to prevent the pathogens that pasteurization kills. Isn't it better to have clean milk that doesn't need to be pasteurized ( cooked) than dirty milk that does need treatment?

Re: “Humboldt Roller Derby -- the Saplings Version!

Believe me I am all about supporting the roller derby, but not because it's for girls, but because it's awesome! And yes, it's not called "boys football". Male is the default in our society. Why isn't it Lumberjacks and Lumberjills? No it's Lumberjacks and "LADYjacks". I suppose because Lumberjacks are male? The article mostly wasn't about our youths, it was about "wow, girls can do that?" And "mother hens"? Open your eyes, people..

Re: “Humboldt Roller Derby -- the Saplings Version!

If they were just treated as athletes, rather than GIRL athletes, more girls might be interested in joining. As it is, they are pointed out as being girls, as if that's something special. My whole life I have done things "unusual" for girls. Instead of just letting me do these things, it was constantly pointed out to me that I was a girl, as if I didn't know that, and as if that made a difference ( it doesn't). Let us be and do and stop making sexist comments.
