Re: “Dying and Destitute

Not exactly sure what you're referring to, Henchman, but imagine it's the comment you left on the blog version of this story, which is still there (viewable on the link below).…

Re: “A Monumental Decision

Truth is we are judging the acts of a man based on only one part in this process. These are all people, flawed. To suggest that Mark Twain should replace the McKinley statute gives forgiveness to Twain who wrote many pieces that contained racist slurs. We should correct history by pointing out the flaws of our past but taking down a monument to McKinley for one segment of his being overlooks his positive things. Where will this stop... ban the Catholic Church in the area because the Crusaders ran through Europe killing Jews? Ban the railroads because they were created on the backs of Chinese slaves? Further, who is the real judge of balancing the good and the bad of all? By the way, I am of Portuguese descent and your Vice Mayor, my daughter, is also of Portuguese descent and our ancestors are guilty of transporting the slaves from Africa to the slave traders. How evil they were, if a slave gave them trouble they just threw them over the side of the ship in the middle of the Atlantic to die horribly. Let us be honest, big mistakes were made in the past, the real discussion is how have we done since and how are we doing moving forward. The statue of McKinley should remain but should be supplemented by the negative so that those people are honored and we properly learn for the future.

Re: “Dying and Destitute

call Resolution Care at 442-5683.

HOJ just called them, reported the North Coast Journal is censoring and deleting posts which only supported the victims in this situation.....

How about that...... local media going around trying to brown-nose victims for a story and then on their own website deleting and censoring anybody else who wants to join in on the discussion and give support to the victims......

Apparently the North Coast Journal is working with local municipalities to cover up facts in one hand while in the other hand come across as sincere Folk who report issues..... What a hoot......

Censoring and deleting posts validates NCJ insincereity, having no honor......and basically, pulling faces on the victims to get information to write a story that attracts comments online that get immediately deleted without any explanation of why.....

Read familiar in Humboldt County folks??? People are afraid of the truth, and media helps coverup the lies using an ancient platform......censorship......

Re: “Congressional Chat

Huffman needs to do his job, one which he has failed to do in representing all of his constituents. He can step up, stop refusing to cooperate with the republicans and President Trump and get things done. He is one swamp dweller who needs to be removed!

Re: “Indebted

How can they claim lost rent if they are not actively attempting to rent the properties out? (totally believe they are running pea/shell, but why has the state/federal gov. hammered them by now?)

Re: “When the Waters Rose

My husband, Navy Photographer Alonzo A. Slaughter was aboard the Marine Corps helicopter that crashed into the Eel River Dec 26, 1964. Only the pilot survived the crash and the remains of those who died were all accounted for, except for my husband and the Copilot, Lt. William Arbogast. I recently saw an article in a newspaper archive that claims an unidentified body washed up on the Klamath River a few month later may have been my husband or the copilot, Lt. Arbogast. Does anyone have any further information of the identity of the remains that were found? I was never notified of these findings and would appreciate any information. It was a long time ago but the memory is still fresh in my mind.

Re: “Indebted

What's remarkable about this story is that it revealed, for the first time locally, how one person can own numerous buildings that are so profitable that he can leave over half of them empty to become profitable tax write-offs on the anticipated rental losses for years...and then rotate them back into rentals while others become empty. Why struggle with more impoverished renters than you need to...and still get buy more properties...?

This is the shell-and-pea game the system rewards and the reason so many Eureka buildings are empty. Some Old Town business properties have been in the same family name long after the original owner died. The family pays minuscule property taxes while the city and county look the other way because these are the crooks with deep roots and assets.

These same crooks get their political candidates elected who would NEVER vote for ordinances that penalize empty buildings for the blight, lost tax revenues, police calls, fires, inflated rental market, and lost opportunity for others that this rigged system causes.

How many more empty buildings are there in Eureka, a city besieged by homeless men women and children?

It's a crime against humanity that, if routinely reported, might begin to sicken decent people.
