Re: “Steampunk Splendor

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: “Bushels of Fall Fun at Fortuna's Apple Harvest Festival

Ah, this makes me homesick. Before moving to Cupertino, I think I went to every one of these festivals for several decades. One of the best things about Humboldt. I still call it by its former name: Clendenen's Apple Harvest Festival, or something similar. Old age; I can't remember.
