Re: “Yurok Tribe Awarded UN Honor for Forest Management Practices

I am proud to have had an association with the Yurok Tribe which involved returning to them my NW California Collection of 2,047 baskets and Objects of Culture. They are SUCH a fine organization, forward looking and pro-active, and I was happy to see what I had gathered over some 60 years go home at last. Tom O'Roarke was Tribal Chairman at that time, and his devotion to his tribe and to his culture was both inspiring and moving. Instead of attacking "Us Collectors," the Tribe recognized our contributions (in terms of having gathered and protected the Tribal Culture) and dealt with me very fairly.

Re: “Win One for the Gipper

Thomas, thanks for your summary of the Crabs vs. Studs series. I appreciated reading it. But in explaining the missed 3rd strike rule [which allowed a Studs batter to reach first and eventually score on a sac fly], you inadvertently implied the batter may run anytime a catcher misses a 3rd strike. This is not the case. For a batter to run on a dropped/missed 3rd strike, either first base must be unoccupied, or there must be two outs. The most famous missed 3rd strike occurred in the 9th inning of Game 6 of the 1941 World Series. The Brooklyn Dodgers were leading the Yankees 4-3,when Yankees' Tommy Heinrich swung at & missed strike three, which should have ended the game. But Dodgers' catcher Mickey Owen missed the ball, allowing Heinrich to reach first and the Yankees rallied to win 7-4.

Re: “UPDATE: Health Officials: New HIV Cases Cause of Concern

I was cured of HIV with the used of natural herbs. My name is celina jolly and am from US. I love herbs so much. Most times, injection and drugs are just a waste of time. I was cured 8 months ago, i suffered from HIV for 13 yrs but with the help of Dr.Ogun herbal medicine, i was cured within few weeks of drinking the herbs he sent to me through courier delivery service. This same doctor also cured my Aunty from herpes, as soon as i heard she had herpes, i quickly refer her to Dr.Ogun and she was cured too after drinking his herbs.I have referred more than 15 persons to Dr.Ogun and they were all cured from their various illness. Have you taken herbs before?. You have spent so much money on drugs,injections,surgeries etc and yet you have no good result to show for it. Contact Dr. Ogun now, he is a herbalist doctor, i assured you of a cure if you drink his natural herbs. Dr.Ogun have herbs that cures Hiv, Herpes, diabetics, asthma, hepatitis, HBP, STD, cancer, chronic, etc. Contact Dr ogun through his Email address on: or WHATSAPP/CALL him on+2348104991149 . Please share the good news to other people once you are cured..

Re: “Eureka Council Rejects Humboldt Made's Proposal, Moves Forward with Virginia Marketing Firm

I don't know anyone from Humboldt Made and I've only been in Humboldt for 19 of my 42 years and won't likely reside here forever, but this was a case of not 'seeing the forest through the trees' in many ways. I just visited my old college town in northern coastal Washington that was much like Humboldt at one point. It's now a gentrified upscale town due to actions like this (I got artisanal cocktails at my old dive bar and $80 Indian food). I've been on both sides of RFPs (government and consultant) and mistakes are made across the board and things like this happen frequently. Some laxity is often given to smaller firms or local firms where no official DBE process is in place. I realize that it is a slippery slope and we must be careful and I agree we should have ethical and professional standards, but from what I could see NCJ really spun the facts and exacerbated the situation. I saw no deliberate attempt to hurt the gross circus. I almost felt like I was watching an abusive parent talk down to a child or watching a bully in action. I know Humboldt needs money after the long string of boom/bust economy, but have a little faith in your local government and people please. No need to create "a story" just to sell the paper and get back at the guy that grabbed your parking spot or whatever is going on here. Again, no real interest in the situation other than a person that has lived through the government bid process and is sad that NCJ really through some local folks under the bus for some reason. I honestly got choked up reading it.

Re: “Eureka Council Rejects Humboldt Made's Proposal, Moves Forward with Virginia Marketing Firm

I'm very disappointed that the #cityofeureka was persuaded by #internettrolls who forced them to default this marketing contact to a organization who clearly doesn't want the public to know their marketing strategy in the #eurekaRFP adding to which another disconnect in this very fragile community. I would rather see this money allotted to local businesses to help them promote Eureka.

Re: “Eureka Council Rejects Humboldt Made's Proposal, Moves Forward with Virginia Marketing Firm

This frustrates me no end. I understand the decision had to be made because it appears process wasn't followed by what looks to be the natural choice to promote Humboldt, a HUMBOLDT group. Instead, we'll be relying on someone in Virginia to entice visitors to an area that few outsiders 'get'. Unless Eddy Alexander is a Humboldt ex-pat, I have no faith in our area getting the cheerleader we deserve.

Re: “Retired FBI Agent: Lawson's Murder Can and Should Be Solved

If it were the son of a prominent and well-established Local, you can be sure that this "mystery" would have been solved - or at the very least, a scapegoat found - by now. But outsiders can only dream of getting the Humboldt County Just-us style Justice.

Re: “Julie Benbow Tapped to Head Visitor's Bureau After Supes Extend Contract

"Locals only" is a way of life in Humboldt County. No doubt Ms. Benbow is a descendant of whomever the town was named after. It sure is "funny" how so many of the sinecures that are handed out around here seem to be handed out to the well-connected "locals" only.

I'll be sure to tell all whom I meet when I manage to extract myself from this west coast version of Hazard County - of what they can expect, should they be so foolish as to actually consider relocating here.

"Lost Coast"? It seems that ethics were the first to be lost here.

Closed Session? Skulking behind closed doors to cover up the traces of their dirty deal, while fobbing the blame off onto unnamed - and conveniently unaccountable - "staff".

Re: “Eureka Staff Repeatedly Provided Council, Public Inaccurate Information About Marketing Contract Process

Lane Millar needs to be fired. HumMade needs to be looked at financially by the IRS and state. The city attorney lied during the city council meeting about wrongdoing to council. Eddy-Alexander needs to make Eureka marketing shine in the next 3 years, they won by far IMO and I read it all, sorry. Hope this happens.
The money going to HM would have quite a bit going to two outside state agencies the first few years and over $28,000 going to 3 of their local consulting board members, not into the two employees with their feet on the ground. Too much convolution IMO.
The locals here are restless being the only county in CA to lose tax revenue in 2018. It shows more and more everyday, especially in Eureka....they made the bed lied in now. Eureka needs to end all the cronyism and move forward... Friday Night Markets will start soon, the best thing to happen in years though.

Sorry Humboldt Made, it might take a few more decades before the memory fades from the costly debacle left behind by the Eureka Chamber of Commerce.

Humboldt Made - What about violating the rules of the submission process? Maybe outsiders are what is needed to break the deadly combination of good ole boys network and the outlaw mentality that is so pervasive and sickening.

Re: “Eureka Staff Repeatedly Provided Council, Public Inaccurate Information About Marketing Contract Process

Im part of the Humboldt Made creative team. All we hoped to do was apply our considerable skills, energies, and knowledge of Humboldt and Eureka to move the County and the City forward in a genuine and authentic way. We dont need people from across the country to tell us who we are and what to do about it. Working with the community we can do that ourselves, thank you. I fear that poor management of the processes involved will eliminate a worthy group of locals who were ready to give everything weve got for Humboldt and Eureka. Read the proposals folks, and judge for yourselves. And remember, its hard not to be part of an inner circle when the circle is so small to begin with.
