Re: “Eureka Mayor Slams County, Legal Cannabis

Good Ol' Boys like Jager still call the shots in this county backed by the biggest landowners...like most everywhere else. The current city council represents an anomaly in Eureka's right-wing political history, none except Brady were supported by the usual big-shots.

City and county government offices are stacked with family and friends, members of the church, Rotary, and republican party. It's so bad that they no longer publish employee directories! Except for top management, you cannot see who is working under any department or what their title is!

Corruption thrives in the darkness.

The California Attorney General won't do a damn thing to enforce the law against Jager and the others unless more people immediately call the CAG office to demand it.

Law enforcement rarely punishes its own.

I have been hearing that the CAG has not been returning the numerous calls of complaints to confirm that property has been illegally "gifted" to friends, family, and law enforcement associates of the coroner's office. Apparently, there's many.

The CAG, the Coastal Commission, the EPA, are just more troublesome "outsiders" historically resisted by the Land Baron Cabal of Humboldt and their political sycophants, at great public cost.

Re: “Eureka Mayor Slams County, Legal Cannabis

Jager fits in with many other public officials, including the newly sworn-in police chief Watson, who love to use the cannabis industry as a whipping boy for all the county's and city's social ills... In this article, Watson blames the region's cannabis industry for the homeless and transients in Eureka, bringing the 2 issues in the above article together in a very sad and highly uninformed way! https://www.northcoastjournal.com/humboldt…

Re: “Eureka Mayor Slams County, Legal Cannabis

Frank Jager may be a skilled and articulate Eureka City administrator; however, I do have some concerns.

While it remains to be seen whether the new canna-businesses will in fact be "the most regulated business[es] in the city," it is fair to assume that they will be more tightly regulated than the coroner's office was when Frank Jager and others were in the practice of doling out sweetheart deals scavenged from the estates of the deceased.

Come to think of it, passing on the Eureka Police Chief post to Steve Watson, one who could be considered beholden to Frank Jager, perhaps might have some hidden perks for Mr. Jager and other city workers involved in questionable pursuits.

On another note, what gives Frank Jager the right to rain on the parade of these new, lawful, and tax-paying enterprises? One is left to wonder if Mr. Jager would change his tune were he to find a way to tap into the proceeds of the emergent industry.

Go live in Texas, Jager. Or Hell. These right-wing heartless hate-bots should follow their heads into their asses and pull the holes in behind them.

Re: “Garberville Man Found Dead in Eel River

Makes me wonder if the poor deceased dog tied to the abandoned car that was found by the tow truck driver will have something to do with this. Thats a sad statement. Sounds like your faith in humanity is lost. I dislike the transient presence here just as much as the next person its important to remember this is someones bother farther or son. And someones world is about to change forever. I hope this brings peace and closer to to a grieving family member. Kym kemp do us ALL a big favor? Remove the comment part of your reporting, please? I loose hope in humanity when I read what your readers post. I could see if they helped solve some of these things but they really do more harm to the other readers, loved ones, victims of these crimes, mothers that have lost their children.

Re: “Online Fortuna Fire Comments Spark Controversy

This is interesting. I can understand and support Wilburn's standing. Holy shit, tell your kids to stop giving a fuck about the internet, stop staring at screens all day yourselves. Teachers, politicians, media reps, PARENTS are setting the worst example possible then scratching their heads over why internet commentary is as it is. Tell your kids to stop giving a fuck about the internet, stop staring at screens all day yourselves. Teachers, politicians, media reps, PARENTS are setting the worst example possible then scratching their heads over why internet commentary is as it is. Im positive mr. Winburn is too familiar with & being honest in his assessment of how his personnel feel and the toll paid even without the bs that some will throw out. I can understand and support Winburn's standing, but the press also. It's neither that is causing this conflict, it's the public comments. What I don't understand and find hard to accept.

Re: “UPDATED: No Report Out of Closed Door Evaluation of Public Defender

Why don't all department heads meet in front of a review board of their PEERS and other educated and experienced professionals in their field? The Board of Supervisors wouldn't know a good defense attorney if it bit them.... oh unless they're getting your kids out of jail. How soon they forget. It all sounds like a self-review...Make self serving and unverfied claims of what you've accomplished and walk out with a pat on the head and a preprinted letter of support from the Board of Supervisors about how they stand behind their appointment. I have no confidence the Board of Supervisors will ever do anything to support our marginalized community.

Re: “UPDATED: No Report Out of Closed Door Evaluation of Public Defender

Something which I have not seen mentioned so far is the requirement that practicing attorneys must have completed ongoing legal training:

http://www.calbar.ca.gov/Attorneys/MCLE-CL…
"With a few exceptions, all attorneys who are actively practicing law in California must complete ongoing legal training. This requirement is called Minimum Continuing Legal Education (MCLE). The required 25 hours every three years must include credits on ethics as well as competence issues, such as substance abuse and mental health.

To make sure attorneys complete their training on a regular schedule, the State Bar requires attorneys to report their training once every three years. The bar also conducts yearly audits on a random set of attorneys to determine whether they are meeting the requirements."

Also:
http://www.calbarjournal.com/MCLESpecialEd…

While Mr. Marcus was out of state there were changes to the MCLE
("Some important changes to MCLE requirements will be implemented by
the State Bar starting July 2014.") and since he was not acting as a lawyer
in Florida during his absence, I would doubt that he took any MCLE courses
there. Whether or not he has completed the 25 hours of continuing education
required only he (and the State Bar) would know.

Perhaps this is an issue Mr. Griego will be bringing up in his lawsuit but I thought
I'd bring it to your attention and hopefully the Board of Supervisors so they can take
the issue into consideration during their discussions of Mr. Marcus' qualifications.
