Why don't you do a comic about Safeway? They are closing both Eureka locations on October 27, yet have already begun to stop stocking their shelves, under corporate direction. Their new location is set to open on Oct. 28. All of the current employees are not promised their jobs; they have to apply for a new job at the new location. All of the 50 jobs at the new location are part time permanent, so not to to pay benefits. And then there was that story about how they contracted with non-local labor to build the thing. Isn't Safeway's corportate personhood funny?
I think the vibrant comment was referring to Old Town Eureka.
I never find clothes I like at WalMart, I think there are already plenty of grocery stores that sell cancer- and obesity-provoking foods, and I already have my favorite pharmacy.
Am I a snob? Do I not fit in with the Humboldt demographic?
So if the "Kinetic Sculpture Race" owns the intellectual property, where was their/your event the last few years? Why don't they/you put on the event, with proper planning not just some reactionary plea at the 11th hour? Why don't they/you hire a real lawyer and actually "serve" papers. Their/your actions do not seem to be those of someone who wants to pursue this to the fullest extent.
The anti-Monica comments above seem strange to me; I think that if they/you like providing the community with a race that includes kinetic machines, you would find a way to make it happen, rather than asking for terms that are unfair and unreasonable and not making yourself available for negotiation, and then putting out a press release at the last minute. That does not seem like a good way to put on an event.
As for the KGC/KU being a bully, it appears to be that they are being defensive. KSR/JHB are worried about the family friendliness of the event. My take on it is that the KU is managing their risk and liability, which may have not been such an issue when Hobart Brown was around. Insurance companies and local governments are all about reducing risk and basically enforcing regulations and making sure it doesn't come back to them if there is a problem, I don't really see how asking for proof of age is not family friendly. If anything it is protecting the children more.
The thing about it being the 43rd or the 6th annual event could be cleared up easily enough.
Based on the information above, I would guess that the brunette pictured is not the retiring Coast Guard woman, so I deduce she is the fiance of the soon to be married couple.
I do wonder if the retiring Coast Guard woman is the same woman who applied for the 4th ward Eureka City Council seat.
Wasn't the Journal the one who was giving the re-opening of the Eureka Inn all sorts of attention. Even trying to get McMenamins to partner with them.
I would love to see a Republican give up their medicare card....
