Deserve it or not, a professional needs to act to professional standards. We should all remember the photographer is a business owner in what has got to be one of the easiest to shop lift from stores in Arcata. He understands theft. ENF also has loss prevention officers, but they are uniformed, I know because one directed me to the water dispenser just a few days ago. If the coop wants to deter shop lifters, and not just catch them, then it seems a uniformed officer would be more a deterrent than one who looks like just another shopper. I think that alone would've prevented a lot of the confusion. All of you "thieves deserve it" folks also need to remember you're living in a country that has bullied and parasitized the rest of the world for most of the fancy crap you "own". You want to address thievery, start there.
Nail on the head is right. Orleans, as well as Somes Bar, Forks of Salmon, Happy Camp, and the other river communities here, are all amazing places (I've had the pleasure of living in most of them). These are still land locked islands of people who live, and work, in their own community. No commutes to the city out here. I believe that is the Mid Klamath's greatest strength, not weakness. We rely on each other. Are interdependent, not independent. Someday, despite the oppressive heat and lack of housing/private land, I hope to find myself working a piece of land of my own here. Thanks Hank, great article, I'm sure you had fun "researching" it.
