Re: “Yurok Tribe Awarded UN Honor for Forest Management Practices

I am proud to have had an association with the Yurok Tribe which involved returning to them my NW California Collection of 2,047 baskets and Objects of Culture. They are SUCH a fine organization, forward looking and pro-active, and I was happy to see what I had gathered over some 60 years go home at last. Tom O'Roarke was Tribal Chairman at that time, and his devotion to his tribe and to his culture was both inspiring and moving. Instead of attacking "Us Collectors," the Tribe recognized our contributions (in terms of having gathered and protected the Tribal Culture) and dealt with me very fairly.

Re: “In the Wind

Sylvia De Rooy is spot-on. The last article on the proposed wind turbines should not have been published. It just isn't Journal-quality.

As I stated in my comment on the story, why not send a photographer up there to take photos from Monument Gate south? You don't have to trespass.

Why not send a photographer up to Bear River Ridge to take photos of the grasslands? The propaganda in the story The Journal wrote about the grasslands not being pristine is hogwash. Maybe they aren't seemingly "pristine" from the road and where there is evidence of human civilization, but if a rancher allows you a walk, take it and tell me those grasslands are not pristine. Take a drive down into Bear River (it's one-way unless you have permission to drive through to Mattole).

Instead, what does The Journal give us? A propaganda photo from the project applicant that is not verified by any third-party source as being realistic. Who says that is what the turbines will look like? They may very well look like that, but why is The Journal printing it without any objective third-party architectural or other related firm taking a look at it and analyzing whether the scale is realistic and honest? By not taking those steps and publishing that photo, The Journal is just perpetuating the self-serving information from a party that has a huge stake in this project. Not kosher.

Furthermore, when is it OK to allow the taking of marbled murrelets? I'm a veteran of the timber wars, having argued mostly in editorials and columns on behalf of not shutting down all logging. Now that is has mostly been shut down, and the fact that environmentalists were correct about marbled murrelets and spotted owls, I cannot believe the Humboldt community will just idly sit by and accept the taking of even one marbled murrelet, considering what has been sacrificed to help bring their numbers back.

The Journal needs to up its game on this issue. While other coverage is good, on this issue it's a fail so far.

Re: “The Cost of Wind

What would it take for The Journal to send a photographer up to Monument Gate, shoot some shots south of it along the ridge? You don't have to trespass. You can also shoot down into the valley to show how close they are together.

Same thing for Bear River but you could actually pay a photographer's gas mileage to drive the mostly gravel-dirt road between Rio Dell and Ferndale (on the Bear River Road part) and take photos of the prairie. It is unparalleled beauty that has not been harmed by ranchers. That is just a libel against ranchers. In fact, there is a grass-fed livestock ranch up there. Check it out. Check out the quality of the grasslands and tell me it isn't pristine.

The forests are another story. Too much over-logging in most places, but that doesn't justify a project that also has its huge carbon footprint.

And who will remove the reinforced (hopefully) cement pads these gigantic wind turbines will be placed on? When will that be done? When the project shuts down? Or never? To justify such environmental pollution while saying ranching has made the grasslands of Bear River less pristine is just hogwash. Furthermore, without an elk herd for decades, those very same cattle helped keep the prairie in a more-pristine state. (If you don't believe the value of cattle and range, check out what environmentalists are doing in South Africa and other southern African nations where desertification is posing a threat.) Bad ranching is harmful just like bad logging just like bad wind projects.

That doesn't justify the taking of marbled murrelets justified by a former EPIC employee.

The Journal needs to do a much better job than this story, which should have not have been published without being sent back and further research and writing required. It's one that doesn't make the cut. I'm surprised The Journal published it.

Re: “Wagging the Dog

The City Council would do well to follow Mr. Greenson's well-reasoned advice. The coverage and this opinion in The Journal prove, once again, that The Journal is the only countywide publication that does a decent job covering such important issues.

Humboldt Made's board, by the same token, should ask its director why she didn't personally oversee the bid's submission. Whenever I submitted bids for Eel River Disposal, I did it myself. And a manager should never blame staff. The buck stops with the manager.

Re: “Wagging the Dog

Amazing display of, at the very least, ineptitude by the entire city administration.

If the city council was deliberately misled every staff member involved should be fired immediately after the June 18th city council meeting no matter who they are.

Hey Solar give Windy her due, she works day or night, rain or shine when the wind blows while you can only manage 5 hours of peak power a day when the sun shines.

Re: “'Sweet Victory' for SpongeBob Fans at the Super Bowl? Stay Tuned

Do anyone still doubt natural herbs? Ive seen the great importance of natural supplements and the wonderful work Dr Edidia has done in my husband life.
I was looking for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease COPD treatments for my husband who was 72yrs old, my husband has COPD and cancer, his condition was very critical which i was very afraid that will not survive it.
His white blood count was very low right now and his doctors are planning on starting some chemo or other treatment soon.. I don't believe he will last long if he does this.. His COPD is getting worse even though he hasn't smoked in 30 years. so i decided to come online to see if there will be better alternative, during my research i saw a lady post about doctor Dr Edidia who has power over deadly disease, so i decided to contact him because i really do not care about what my husband was talking in all i want for him is for him to get well for me because he was all i have, my husband took the remedies that he send to us through UPS as he told us and few weeks later my husband stop to notice that symptoms of his disease are begging to leave him so he went back to his Dr and he was told he no longer has those diseases.
My husband is totally free of COPD and cancer if not for doctor Edidia who help us rid this problem there is a possibility that my husband wouldn't be alive today.

Re: “'Goodbye Dear Friend'

Editor: Interesting to read these comments concerning KHSU. As an east coast broadcaster who has felt the boot print of Peter Fretwell, I can relate. Before coming west, Fretwell was General Manager of Mercer County Community Colleges Classical Station WWFM in New Jersey. He made a mess of things there with a hostile work environment, the effects of which are still being felt today. If Fretwell has truly left KHSU, consider yourselves lucky! I sincerely hope the community at Humboldt can regain control. Peter Fretwell destroys virtually everything and anyone he touches.

Re: “Win One for the Gipper

Thomas, thanks for your summary of the Crabs vs. Studs series. I appreciated reading it. But in explaining the missed 3rd strike rule [which allowed a Studs batter to reach first and eventually score on a sac fly], you inadvertently implied the batter may run anytime a catcher misses a 3rd strike. This is not the case. For a batter to run on a dropped/missed 3rd strike, either first base must be unoccupied, or there must be two outs. The most famous missed 3rd strike occurred in the 9th inning of Game 6 of the 1941 World Series. The Brooklyn Dodgers were leading the Yankees 4-3,when Yankees' Tommy Heinrich swung at & missed strike three, which should have ended the game. But Dodgers' catcher Mickey Owen missed the ball, allowing Heinrich to reach first and the Yankees rallied to win 7-4.

Re: “DIY Rush Limbaugh

Grew up there and witnessed the damaging polices of liberalism from the 60's till my father died 2004. Sold the house because Euerka is nothing like it used to be and not worth living there with the proliferation of gangs and meth, since there are not any good jobs there anymore for blue collar workers. Big reason why over 13 percent decrease of population in the 70's were liberal policies that killed 36 percent of the jobs in less than 5 years. Redwood national park expansion Carter implemented.
