Re: “Car Hearts — Cruz'n Eureka Rolls Into Town

It's great how the older generation is showing today's impressionable youths how to save the planet by one day having their own gas-hog fetish.

Old timers understand that nothing will change until we burn up the rest of the cheap oil.

They're heroes.

Re: “Photos from the 56th Klamath Salmon Festival

Ironic that the Yurok Tribe would serve up a species - Klamath River Spring Chinook - whose wild component is on the brink of extinction and which were recently petitioned by the Karuk Tribe for ESA and California ESA protection.

Of even more concern is that the State of California allows guides and anglers to take two of these fish each and every day. THAT is insane!

I guess tribal and white fishers would say the fish were mostly from Trinity Hatchery. But even if just a few wild Springers were taken (and eaten), those who took and ate them put wild Klamath River Spring Chinook at greater risk for extinction.

Re: “Micki Dyson Flatmo's Resistance Couture

When I first observed the artistic work of Gabino Amaya Cacho I thought they were valuable figurative paintings. Now he paints something new and original, abstract pointillism, leaving the figurative for the moment. These paintings have a high level of abstraction, almost hypnotic and sets the imagination to flight, each point seems to have a different meaning, which each mind of each viewer grants it. I love his painting. What do you think?

Re: “Full Steam Ahead

Hey Ross Huber,

If you LOVE Southern Humboldt as much as you say you do, you are quoted as saying in photo 17/20:

~Fall Splendor volunteer and Community Park board member Ross Huber, of Garberville, said, "If the move of the event from Garberville to this donated venue was contentious, it wouldn't be sold out but it is. I think people are enjoying a chance to have a night out anyway from Southern Humboldt"

Its funny you used the word "contentious". No one I know ever said it wouldn't be sold out, if you moved it to Eureka; it was the fact you took that money away from Southern Humboldt, including the Mateel and other local business. I guess you can try and spin it anyway you want. However, it's hypocritical of you to say that the development plans and water usage at the Park are justified because of the money generated in Southern Humboldt from people coming from out of town and spending money in the local community, i.e. sports tournaments, concerts, festivals, weddings etc.

And theres the fact you didnt even ask the community what they wanted or what they thought. Its always a one sided conversation with you Ross and the other self-appointed Park board members. Because its not really a Community Park, its a private business, with private investors, and a self-appointed board of directors without board meetings open to the public! Do as I say, not as I do

So I guess the Park Board will not be paying Jennifer Metz this year (as in past years) for putting on the fundraiser, since the venue was donated? IMHO, I'm not sure anyone can believe that Ross. You stated on another blog;

"The park does not have a venue to hold Fall Splendor in Southern Humboldt because the Mateel is booked all the way through the fall."

Well, we found out that was BS, it's because the new venue in Eureka was recently purchased by Tim & Jennifer Metz. I'm sure right now, the Mateel would love that income since they had opening almost all of October, just say'in...

Full disclosure; Tim Metz is the founding President of the Southern Humboldt Community Park Board of Directors (2002-2010), has personally gained from accruing compounded interest on a $92,000 private loan to the Park while sitting Board President, pending private loans accruing interest totaling $15,812, personally gained from USDA/NRCS restoration contracts at the Park totaling $192,000 while sitting Board President and who is currently Director Emeritus, e.g. allowed to attend private Park Board Meetings that conduct business and planning fundraising events at the SHCP.

So I guess it's just a coincidence, right?

Bottom line; The Southern Humboldt Community Park moved its big yearly fundraiser (Fall Splendor) from the Mateel Community Center to a private venue in Eureka for 2017 ("Historic Eagle House"). And according to the Parks 2016 tax records, that fundraiser generated over $34,000 in overhead for the local community, the event grossed over $83,000; not counting money spent locally by out of town attendees and vendors, e.g. motels/hotels, restaurants, fuel and what ever else they consume or smoke. So now, the local community will lose all that income to Eureka and the Metz's! Why is that? Did the community have a say? NO!…
