NCJ Preview: Election Baking, Mountain Lion Mamas and Upscale Climate Refugees

Posted By on Thu, Oct 22, 2020 at 5:21 PM

This week we've got Nora Mounce (and her son Leroy) on to talk about the history and resurgence of spicy, boozy election cakes. We'll also get into how climate change, COVID and wildfires combine to impact the local real estate market, as people facing the prospect of rising temps, smoke and remote work look to move to towns like Trinidad. What does it mean for locals looking for a place to live? And if you saw the viral mountain lion mama video, you might want to hear what a local State Parks guide had to say about it and staying safe in mountain lion country.

Learn why the reopening options the new level offers may be precarious. And is a strongly worded letter enough to fix COVID safety violations? Cal Osha is hoping so. Finally, we'll talk about how Frankie's NY Bagels is thriving as a one-person operation — and why he's selling the shop. Hit subscribe for weekly updates on Humboldt County stories.
