Re: “Saga of an Ape — The surprising true story of the late Bill the Chimp

Thank you so much for posting this, last year my Grand father Willy Lenz passed away and Ive been trying to do some research about his past in the circus, I was never very close to my grand parents as they lived in North Carolina and I was raised in Calgary, Alberta. I knew that my grandma and grandpa were in the circus and trained chimpanzees but I never knew to what extent so I am greatly appreciative for you sharing this article. Its helped me find out more out my heritage and family.

Re: “'Sweet Victory' for SpongeBob Fans at the Super Bowl? Stay Tuned

My Wife was diagnosed with ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease) when she was 72 years old 4 years ago. The Rilutek (riluzole) did very little to help her. The medical team did even less. Her decline was rapid and devastating. Her arms weakened first, then her hands and legs. Last year, a family friend told us about Organic Herbal clinic and their successful ALS TREATMENT, we visited their website www. organicherbalclinic. com and ordered their ALS Formula, i am happy to report the treatment effectively treated and reversed her Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), most of the symptoms stopped, she is able to walk and eat well, sleep well and exercise regularly., she is pretty active now

Re: “Cooperation Humboldt Open House

I would be interested in helping with the tool library. We had one in Berkeley that was very helpful for me with my first fixer upper. Having things like a motorized snake for a clogged main pipe can save a bundle for a low income family. I think I could get donations of simpler tools from Members of Humboldt Unitarian Universalist fellowship.

Re: “Local Beefcake: Photos from the Mr. Humboldt Pageant

rlbw: Good eye on the retro use of "beefcake" and thanks for using my preferred title of Ms. Though I'm not sure, if you root through vintage Playgirl magazines, that you'll find any sneering, nor in my approach the fellas in this slideshow, who clearly gave it their all.

It's interesting that it takes so little a handful of men actively and consensually sending up beauty pageants and stereotypes about masculinity for laughs and charity for you to abandon support, if ever you gave it, for nonprofits that feed the hungry, aid families in need and give shelter and comfort to victims of sexual assault.

Likewise the ease with which you dismiss the #MeToo movement and its support of victims of sexual assault and harassment based on, what, looking at men who've taken the stage to be looked at? Consent is the name of the game, rlbw. And as long as nobody engaged with the contestants without it, I don't see the harm in a little striptease from Mr. Queer.

There's a nuanced discussion to be had about male objectification in the context of the patriarchy but the idea that women and femmes must walk a tightrope of chaste, humorless perfection in order to qualify to ask for fair treatment and freedom from violence is just silly.

I suppose we'll all have to carry on without your support. We've done all right without it thus far.

Re: “Local Beefcake: Photos from the Mr. Humboldt Pageant

"Beefcake"? Oh, how very 1970s Playgirl-esque sneering that is, Ms. Cahill.
Humboldt County people, females specifically, many of you are sick.

Why take the #MeToo movement seriously or women's issues in general seriously when so many women have no qualms about engaging in this festival of male body...
> Comparing
> Shaming
> Humiliation
> Stereotyping

Ladies, your protests about misogyny, paternalism and such ring completely hollow when you enthusiastically go for this local gutter depravity.

As for Food for People, I no longer support you. As for North Coast Rape Crisis, the Arcata Family Resource Center, and Planned Parenthood, thanks for reminding me to ignore you.

Re: “On Priest Abuse

While Henry II is on record expressing the sentiment mentioned above (Will no one rid me of this troublesome/turbulent priest?) it is a modern coinage, first (I think) used in the 1964 movie Beckett as: Will no one rid me of this meddlesome priest?
Also, Chambers has laicize or laicise: (1) To make laical (2) To open to the laity

Re: “Steps Made to Protect the Klamath Spring Run Chinook

The Shasta River is the best bet for restoring robust and wild Spring Chinook salmon population. All that is needed is removal of one small dam used for irrigation. The Montague irrigation District could switch to wells or divert water without a dam.

The Karuk Tribe had a lawsuit a few years back that could have gotten Dwinnell Dam out or at minimum fish passage around it. But they settled for lawyers fees and a token amount of water for fish flows. That was too bad; but some other entity could, and should, do a similar lawsuit.

That would be the best thing that could happen for Klamath River Spring Chinook!

Re: “Steps Made to Protect the Klamath Spring Run Chinook

The #1 thing that could be done to help S[ring Chinook on the Klamath side of the Klamath-Trinity River Basin survive would be to take out Dwinnell Dam and Reservoir on the Shasta River. The Shasta was once the largest producer of Spring Chinook in the K-T. Then, in 1928, Dwinnell Dam wasd completed with no fish passage. It blocked access to the Spring Chinook strongholds on the Upper Shasta, Parks and Edy Creek, etc. Within 10 years Spring Chinook were extirpated from the Shasta River Basin.

Getting Spring Chinook established in the Upper Klamath River Basin may be difficult and may not produce m,any fish. The Tribes have a plan for a hatchery up on the Klamath Reservation above Upper Klamath Lake. They plan to haul juveniles down to the Klamath River. This sort of "experimental population" would not have ESA protection. It would be better to just let the Springers find their way once the dams are out. Then they would have ESA protection but some think humans can do better than natural recolonization. i have my doubts.

Re: “The Grifter in Chief

Umm, Anony grazer, the Clintons are NOT in power, good grief are too many of you Far Right folks seemingly dumb as rocks, no offense - constantly dodging, deflecting, anything but facing the FACTS - Trump is a buffoon, and a criminal one, anyway you cut it, buddy. And Trump is the POTUS not the Clintons, oh clueless and blind one. Btw even if it were pertinent to try to 'defend' them, the Clintons were not nearly so CORRUPT and self serving as this buffoon we have as POTUS, not even close. So it appears you are WRONG on all accounts. :-(

Re: “HumCo Health Officials Eyeing Measles Outbreak in Washington, Bracing for the Worst

You're all idiots. 18 cases an hour worldwide. Measles is one of the most contagious diseases in planet Earth. And in the US measles was declared eradicated in 2000 until you ant science flat earthers became patents. Your priviledge is disgusting. You have been privileged to grow up in a country with herd immunity so you have no idea what EASILY PREVENTABLE childhood diseases like diphtheria, polio, measles can and routinely did to children. We have an infant too young to be immunized against measles and immunocompromisedlike children with leukemia can't be immunized. So now that you can exercise your privilege out family will remain isolated for the next 9 months until our baby is old enough to be immunized against measles. Frankly you all belong in jail on child endangerment charges you privileged entitled snots.
