Re: “State, Fair Association, County in Standoff Over Sunshine Laws

I cannot believe this issue remains unresolved, that stonewalling has intensified and that the fair board, made up of a lot of people I know, is so recalcitrant. Unbelievable. Afraid of a weekly newspaper and editor/publisher Caroline Titus doing what all reporters would do: asking appropriate questions, going after stories where there are legitimate stories to be written, writing editorials about the board's recalcitrance, etc. The board has historically operated this way; in addition to having very thin skins. Shameful. Shameful.

Re: “Which Way the Wind Blows

On July 20, 2019 just before 2:00 p.m. Saturday afternoon smoke was observed coming from the generator unit of a wind turbine south of Bickleton in rural Klickitat County. The fire engulfed the turbine 300 feet above the ground. Melted sections of the wind turbine fell to the ground igniting the fire. Aided by gusting winds, the fire spread to between 350 to 500 acres in steep canyon terrain.…

Re: “Huffman Helps Pass Minimum Wage Bill; Legislation DOA in Republican Senate

Huffman says, "That means the legislation would have no direct impact in Huffman's district. In the press release, he explained that he's supporting the measure because he thinks it would give minimum wage workers a "fair shake" and be good for the economy."

What a crock, evidently he's not been a businessman or he'd know you can't give raises without increased production. Just how is this going to benefit those layed off? How does it benefit those with increased workload because of layoffs? How is it not going to effect his district? Does his district have no employees? How is this going to help employment when employers limit their crew to just 25 employees? What a dumbass! The government should not control wages, that is the definition of fascism. Look it up. Less taxes, less government is more economic freedom. The solution to being under payed is get a better paying job or start your own company as I did.

Re: “'Outside the Box'


Despite every Housing Element's proposals in addressing housing needs through many alternatives...only a tiny fraction of "low and very low" income housing are ever permitted. In all fairness, "moderate and above" housing should be frozen until a closer balance is achieved...unless you simply enjoy complaining about destitution, despair, addiction and homelessness.

Nothing will get done as long as the current political leadership and their appointees and staff stick to the usual ambiguous language "suggesting" that local government actually ensure balanced housing inventories that serve all economic class of residents.

Re: “That Van Life

Not one mention in this long article explaining just how toxic these "recreational" vehicle's are from off-gassing? How many children are being exposed? Windshields are the worst, adding to a smorgasbord of toxic adhesives, heavy metals (aluminum), paints, foam, vehicle lubricants, fuel fumes, asbestos and preservatives all condensed into a small living area.

Best to buy an old model.

Instead of taking minimal steps to mitigate the recurring collapse of the next housing fraud, (the primary cause of affordable housing shortages), Humboldt County and Eureka are approving more places for victims...selling valuable bay property for another predatory "recreational" vehicle "campground" profiteer. And "consideration" of humane car-parks, shelters and SRO's. (About time...)

Meanwhile, 250 more big homes are planned behind the Redwood Acres race track further enriching the development industry, profiting each time big homes are built, sold, foreclosed and resold, collecting their windfall until the next looming bailout while creating more infrastructure liabilities that end up being paid for by people who can't afford to live there.

The number of economic refugees living in vehicles and tents is staggering and growing rapidly. Take away the color images and it looks more like the 1930's every day...including the rise of fascism.

Bongio and Ulansey are just right-wingers who want to eliminate any and all regulations so that they can make even MORE money. Neither have the interests of the public in mind, only personal profits.

Re: “Straight from the PALCO Playbook

I would also add to Dan's comment above to please tell RCEA you don't want your electric money to support Humboldt Redwood Company. Everyone who is in RCEA's community choice energy program is supporting the Fisher family. Humboldt Redwood/Sawmill Company has RCEA's largest biomass power purchase agreement. The biomass is the tail that wags the dog.

Re: “'Hook, Line and Turbine'

Over 2000 grass roots organizations around the world are condemning Industrial wind turbines. These mega machines have a history of being embraced by absentee landlords, like lumber companies, while destroying the lives of local residents, human and animal.

Re: “'Outside the Box'

The homeless problem is directly connected to the tax code which allows real estate investment corporations and other speculators to buy up vast real estate holdings, then use them as a direct write-off on their taxes on their other profitable enterprises in other locals. Through depreciation and other mechanisms they can avoid taxes and declare a loss. They prefer to have property management firms minimally maintain the unoccupied property and thus avoid tenant complications. This causes artificial scarcity, and high cost rents beyond average pay which has not kept pace. British Columbia passed a law to combat this problem by levying a very high TAX on buildings held vacant. This is the simple answer to homelessness! ! !

Re: “Straight from the PALCO Playbook

Rainbow Ridge is owned by the Fisher's, same people who own The GAP clothing store. If you believe the wild beauty of Rainbow Ridge and the Lost Coast should be preserved rather than destroyed, stop patronizing their brands and tell your friends to do the same. Then the Fisher family might honor this remarkable area as a preserve.
