Re: “That Sinking Feeling

The Allen Cody (USS APc-48) or the Dennis Gayle (USS APc-5) should be raised, restored to their WWII glory and put in a museum to honor the 5000 or so WWII sailors that served on them and fought for our country in the early ominous days of the Pacific war campaign. There are very few of these boats left and none have been preserved as they should.

Re: “Wiyot Tribe Votes to Remove McKinley Statue

Buildings and public art shape the intellectual climate of a place. We in the present moment have more power to determine what future generations experience than we may have previously realized. We do not have to receive and continue to put the destruction in a place of honor. We can tell the whole truth about the past and the present and honor something honorable. I vote for honoring the Wiyot nation with that space in a way they select.

Melt it down, and recycle it into a monument to the Wiyot, and the genocide unleashed on them. Havent they suffered long enough?

Re: “Wiyot Tribe Votes to Remove McKinley Statue

Apparently everyone has given up on solving real problems like keeping school children from getting massacred. Now we just have to devote all our energy to silly symbols and heroic rewrites of history that pander to our own political sensibility.The statue has been there for over a century It's part of Arcata history regardless of McKinley himself.

Re: “Still Missing

Fred-
Thanks for your comment. We stand by our reporting.

The bottom line is Humboldt County has a very high rate of missing persons reports with dozens of people unaccounted for every year. In our view, that's a problem. We disagree with the argument that because local law enforcement find more people reported missing each year than do counties with fewer missing persons reports, theres no problem and that should have been the story.

To clarify, here are some numbers from the California Attorney Generals Office.
On average since 2000, Humboldt County finishes each calendar year with 40.41 uncleared missing persons reports per 100,000 county residents. The statewide average is 27 uncleared reports per 100,000 residents. While some of these folks may be located in subsequent calendar years and the statistics are, as we note in our reporting, flawed, they are the only statewide data on the missing and they indicate that, proportionately, more people go truly missing from Humboldt than from the rest of the state.

Looking at missing persons reports that are cleared by the finding of a dead body, Humboldt county has proportionally much higher rates as well. Since 2000 in Humboldt County, an average of 3.99 missing persons cases a year per 100,000 residents are cleared by finding the person deceased. The state average over the same time period was 1.17.

So, while Humboldt County law enforcement finds more missing people per 100,000 residents each year than the state average, more of our cases go unresolved and more end with discovery of a dead body.

I wish it was as simple as Humboldt residents not calling their moms. But its more likely our high rates of drug and alcohol addiction, high suicide rates, an illicit industry shrouded in secrecy that includes some violent actors, very high rates of chronic homelessness and a rugged, rural terrain.

The Attorney Generals Offices database is the official list of the missing from the states chief law enforcement office. The list is obviously flawed as our reporting states and the cases of Rebekah Martinez, Daniel Stromberg and those obviously swept out to sea illustrate but it remains the official state database. As such, both the list and its flaws warrant examination.

Again, thanks for reading and taking the time to weigh in.

Re: “Crisis Delayed

"I think the only way we're going to do it is by working with the private sector," Bohn went on. "We might have to work with the big nasty developers. That's who gets it done, the DANCOs and the Strombecks. Nobody came in here with the tool belt today. We're looking to Sacramento for help but they have 30 to 40 people camping on the Capitol lawn every night."

I disagree. The only housing these organizations provide are for those at the Federal Poverty Level. They do not provide affordable housing for those single, on SSI/SSA, or SSA. You want to provide housing that is affordable, build Single Resident Units for the very very low income.

Sure, DANCO & Strombeck might be building housing for Seniors & Veterans through public grants, but these come with support from Vouchers and other housing programs for tenants filling these - those units being set aside for use by DHHS will have limited funding to support the homeless to move in and are limited in numbers, as are the numbers being provided for those using mobility devices (which in the end will be filled with a walking disabled, and the one with a chair will be left out on the street (getting many calls for these now).

You want to get people out of the streets and bushes buld low low income housing, not affordable housing.

Re: “Crisis Delayed

"Bohn said he was concerned that an ersatz shelter on public land, one of the potential outcomes of a shelter crisis declaration, might put the county into conflict with the Americans with Disabilities Act. The county has already come under fire for its non-compliance with ADA restrictions. Bohn emphasized the importance of private citizens, faith groups and non-governmental organizations working to address homelessness."

You are playing a game, do not use the ADA as an excuse. I have heard the ADA as an excuse from many as stopping things from going forward. The only thing stopping it from going forward is the lack of doing what needs to be done!

This comment from Bohn is an excuse, it solves nothing and places the blame on the wrong community!

Re: “Not Missing in Humboldt: Bachelor Contestant Bekah Martinez

Bekah Martinez was rejected by Arie Luyendyk Jr. on Monday's episode of The Bachelor.

The 22-year-old nanny was left sobbing after the former race car driver ditched her during a cringeworthy group date.

'It's hard for me to accept that this is over,' bawled the California native as she left.

Response: Strong men don't like weak women who lie and manipulate others just to get on a reality show.....

Now Becah is a nanny...... The twists and turns in this mother daughter hoax...... Nanny for a dope grower when not trimming weed for that dope grower.....

Becah is still a girl, and a very dumb one to boot, needs to grow up, maybe go to a love counselor or hitch a ride on the love train ......boats are too contaminated these days with germs....
