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: “North Bay Rotaract

This is an awesome group to be a part of. They are always doing so much for the community. Another great part is that you don't have to fully commit to everything that they have going on if you have a busy life. I would fully suggest checking it out.

Re: “Qigong

Today I attended for the 1st time to Shullie's Qigong class and I am so grateful to finally find a practitioner who does this work on regular basis. She is so natural at it!! loves this work and enjoys doing it. Qigong is a wonderful practice to slow down your brain, be in the now, opens your heart and cells with lots of oxygen, as your life depends on it! :) Breathing is so important and so not done well enough for most of us... and that is why I have been looking for Qigong classes for a while, as I know through my own holistic practice with bio-energetic synchronization technique how important the breathing is! it is needed for every cell of your body to function well in every stage of it. I highly recommend this class to everyone who is seeking gentle and powerful mind body connection practice.

Re: “Eureka City Council

Come and watch Eureka locals piss and moan about the homeless and get policies and ordinances passed that punish the poorest most vulnerable men, women and children.

Re: “Poets on the Plaza

It needs to be pointed out that the rent for Poetry on the Plaza is gratis (free). It is meant to serve to Poetry community in our lives. Unfortunately , we have the same MC of the event after 12 long years, without any change , or dialogue. The show is advertized heavily, and is not sustained by its own merit. The MC needs to be turned over to different talent from time to time . Thiis change is long overdue !

Re: “Arts McKinleyville

Also during McKinleyville Arts Alive, in the Silver Lining Restaurant at the airport-…

A show by Herman Bouler at the Silver Lining Restaurant. The reception is tomorrow evening. Please join me - I'd love to have your company and spend some time with you!

"Artists and pilots utilize the same side of the brain to do their craft. I am grateful to have that attribute, and happy that I can show my photos at the primary airport of training for my private pilot’s license. I've spent a few hours slow and low, flying over this runway, landing only a few times, turning around and doing it again. I love aviation, and when I heard that there has never been an art show at the
Silver Lining featuring airplanes, I thought of my airshow photos. Photographing airplanes at an airshow is fun and intense. A constant input of planes and people make this a must-go-to."

Live Music by JD Jeffries and Michael Stewart

Also, in the main part of the airport is a show called "Women's Work," art by Elizabeth Berrien, Lynn Carlin, Becky Evans, Lida Penkova, Georgia Long, Micki Dyson-Flatmo and Rachel K. Schlueter.

Re: “Poets on the Plaza

I would like to see some kind of "barrier" between the two areas, the Poetry area and the restaurant. The noise from the restaurant is loud. Also, the lighting is blinding to the point I wanted to change my seat and face the podium from a different direction. So my 3 Star is more based on the surroundings than the event itself.
