My son just informed me that an old friend of mine Herb Macias was shot and killed I went to school with him many years ago and remained his friend after school for years, I new his family all extremely nice folks and Herb was always a mild mannered gentleman. I lost communication with the family for several years now but I just can't believe this has happened to him God bless him and his family they were always nice to me, like family nice I am truly shocked. and I am very sorry he is no longer with us may he rest in peace my old friend.

Re: “Huffman, Thompson Blast Trump Admin for Leaving California out of Disaster Funding

If they believe Trump's policies to be harmful to their constituents, why should they not object to them? "Fanatical" implies that the policies would benefit us and the congressmen are objecting simply for partisan reasons. I don't think that is the case.

Re: “Squireses' Properties? Going, Going, Gone?

Its pretty interesting, whats going on with the Squires properties. It seems like the City of Eureka hired Santa Monica based attorney Mark Adams to steal the properties, not bring them up to code. To defend a trespassing suit and being a receiver for four weeks he charged $158,000? How many thousands a week does Jeff Smith or the average receiver get? I want to be a receiver too. The way Mark Adams and his company, California Receivership Group creatively charges they'll end up with all the Squires places and The City of Eureka owing them money to boot. He must have gone to Trump University. They're going to get a management company and everything. That will take care of all the problems.
If the Squires owe $1,500,000 in back property taxes, why didn't the County ever put their properties up for sale? They do it with numerous other properties for a lot less. If the City and County want some of their money, why don't they sell the 26 properties one at a time? The return will be much higher and first time homebuyers could get a chance to buy an affordable fixer upper.
Ha ha ha, this is Humboldt County, the only business model they have ever known here is the Robber Baron business model. I am not exaggerating either.

Re: “Huffman, Thompson Blast Trump Admin for Leaving California out of Disaster Funding

If the Congressman and his predecessor would be less fanatical regarding their opposition to everything the President would like to accomplish, then maybe California would fare better when it comes to the federal government. But we know Jared is not going to play ball, no matter what, so he will allow California to just slip into the abyss along with his constituents and nothing gets done in Washinton.

Re: “State Accuses Eureka Doc of Negligence

My father was a patient of Dr Palmer for over 35 years. He performed an cardiac/thoracic aneurism repair and several smaller surgeries over that time. He always showed respect, kindness and compassion. Most important, he was forthright & honest with him up until the time my Dad passed away from cancer at age 84. My father had strong faith in Dr Palmer. Mainly because he always considered my Dad's well-being uppermost. This resulted in a peace of mind for my Dad that helped him cope.

Re: “Bass Announces $4.8 Million Federal Grant, Ramped Up Needle Disposal Efforts at Packed Opioid Town Hall

So these opioid users are predominately native Humboldtians or imports?

Needles - double edged sword, 90% needle return rate data is not believeable.....

How many millions in costs as a result of "build it and they will come"?

Will it turn out like the AGAPE HOUSE.....? Too early to tell says the 8 ball......

Needle users routinely cause other problems too because most are already douches in life......lazy, liars, irresponsible, etc....rather walk over a cleaner dirty needle on the sidewalk than puke, spit, feces, etc......but who picks up dog poop, or their own butthole proceeds to mankind's generously unprincipled society.....

Do the drug abusers who use the services pay back the fed/state treasuries the 4.8 million buckaroonies??????

That is why this grant is nonsensical......if Apple or Microsoft can buy land to build a city, then why can't a specific city be built for drug abusers only.......good people don't want LOSER abusers in our communities...... Very few abusers are good folk......most are scum.

Re: “Squireses' Properties? Going, Going, Gone?

I agree with Beachcomber. Common sense tells me someone assigned to carry out duties in this matter shouldn't be able to bid on the same properties. That's not okay. That's like my family is holding a public contest and I'm picked as the winner of the contest. It's not ethical. It's wrong on so many levels.

Don't get me wrong, In no way do I think these properties should remain in the hands of the Squires. They let them go to crap, they refuse to pay the back taxes, fines, fees on the properties or the judgements against them nor have they done anything to bring these places up to code not to mention clean them up and take actions to prevent them from being problem properties. I think they should be auctioned off and the new owner given a time frame to get each one cleaned and up to code starting with the worst first. I think anyone associated with the legal process up to this point should absolutely be disqualified from bidding. Otherwise the judge, attorneys and Mr. Smith would be allowed to bid also. This is abuse of position and conflict of interest as far as I'm concerned.

I addition, I think the city and/or county let this matter drag on about 5 years too long. It's crazy, wasteful, very costly and completely unacceptable to let this drag out this long.

Re: “Squireses' Properties? Going, Going, Gone?

I'm no fan of the Squires' and their brand of landlordery but....this sounds more than a little sketchy? The guy is given and fails at the job of bringing things up to code then is allowed to buy and manage them? This sounds like the dictionary definition of "conflict of interest". Am I missing something? With those qualifications, next thing you know he'll be working in the White House.

Re: “Men with Rifles, Tactical Gear Rob 35, Make off with Six Vehicles in Three Robberies

Native American looking men. Thats so stereotypical. What does an Indian look like? We are all colors of the rainbow, pale with blue eyes, medium colored skin with green eyes, Asian looking, dark skinned, Hispanic looking and even albino. I for one am tired of stereotypical descriptions. Except for one, we are mostly under 6. Remember the Tea Party in Boston. White people dressed like Indians.

Re: “Eureka Mayor Slams County, Legal Cannabis

Good Ol' Boys like Jager still call the shots in this county backed by the biggest most everywhere else. The current city council represents an anomaly in Eureka's right-wing political history, none except Brady were supported by the usual big-shots.

City and county government offices are stacked with family and friends, members of the church, Rotary, and republican party. It's so bad that they no longer publish employee directories! Except for top management, you cannot see who is working under any department or what their title is!

Corruption thrives in the darkness.

The California Attorney General won't do a damn thing to enforce the law against Jager and the others unless more people immediately call the CAG office to demand it.

Law enforcement rarely punishes its own.

I have been hearing that the CAG has not been returning the numerous calls of complaints to confirm that property has been illegally "gifted" to friends, family, and law enforcement associates of the coroner's office. Apparently, there's many.

The CAG, the Coastal Commission, the EPA, are just more troublesome "outsiders" historically resisted by the Land Baron Cabal of Humboldt and their political sycophants, at great public cost.

Re: “Eureka Mayor Slams County, Legal Cannabis

Jager fits in with many other public officials, including the newly sworn-in police chief Watson, who love to use the cannabis industry as a whipping boy for all the county's and city's social ills... In this article, Watson blames the region's cannabis industry for the homeless and transients in Eureka, bringing the 2 issues in the above article together in a very sad and highly uninformed way!…
