Re: “Fall Splendor Up Up & Away, an Elegant & Odd Steampunk Adventure

Just to set the record straight; this fundraiser was moved out of the Southern Humboldt Community, because Tim & jennifer Metz became partners in ownership of the "Historic Eagle House in Eureka", it's the one and only reason it will be held there!

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!

The Park Board has turned their back on the Southern Humboldt Community, so Tim & Jennifer Metz can make a name for themselves, e.g. profiting from having the so called "fundraiser" at their new digs and venue in Eureka.

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

Re: “Humboldt County Historical Society

As a daughter of a retired Eureka car inspector, I thoroughly enjoyed Mr Figone's presentation. I bought his book but would love a DVD of it

Re: “Extreme "Midget" Wrestling

Whoever came up with this degrading, disgusting concept should be ashamed. "Little people" have been objectified, ridiculed, intimidated, and abused throughout history. What slack-jawed moron thinks this is fun and funny?

Re: “Jazz Jam

Went there tonight and saw a sign saying they are closed till Aug 11. So why is this event in this week's listings? This has happened recently with other events that have been posted but were on break for one reason or another. (Example: Qi Gong class Mondays 11 - 12. I went the week before last because it was listed and no one was there. Teacher was on vacation.)

Sorry guys, this showed up in the email from North Coast Journal, Thursday the 18th, at 330pm...if your turnout wasn't as you'd hoped, that's quite possibly why.

Re: “Amy Goodman

Very disappointed, while it is all well and good that, no one turned away for lack of funds, was offered, the fact is that we were turned away for, SOLD OUT. We arrived 40 minutes early, for the event, coming from Crescent City. The web site does not list advance sale tickets and I find it hard to grasp that Eureka doesnt possess a venue large enough to contain an, Amy Goodman, audience. It would seem that the promoters did not do their, Due Diligence, in considering the required audience capacity for the event. It is heartening to know that in the current, Days of Trump, that a voice of sanity and reason may still be heard. It is just a shame that we couldnt find a place big enough for everyone to be able to hear the message.
