Re: “New Survey Reveals Who Owns Guns in California — and How Many Got Them Without Background Checks

I put my gun on the table and I says to it , gun go kill someone...... I waited and waited. Nothing happened! People kill people. Or more correctly mentally unbalanced, no empathy people kill innocent people. God bless

Re: “UPDATE: Missing Humboldt Hiker Found Dead After Massive Search Effort

Rather heartless, Mr. Zero. Mr. Komins was an EMT and a volunteer firefighter. You know what that means? It means he saved peoples lives. Everybodys lives. Lots of them. A real loss. A family who loved this man and your concern is how much money was spent trying to rescue him. Daniel is in heaven. Keep up such cold heartless comments and you will find yourself very uncomfortably burning in...when it is your time. Take your hate someplace else.

Re: “UPDATE: Missing Humboldt Hiker Found Dead After Massive Search Effort

So all this money and those resources spent because some yuppie wanted to play adventurer. No one should be backpacking alone! That is a no brainer (for people with brains). The taxpayer has to pay out over and over again so idiots can be saved: people stuck on a river rock, college kids washed onto a coastal cliff, arrogant hikers lost in back country. Humans should not even be in wilderness or sensitive areas. The earth needs to heal. Reckless people should stay home and play Russian roulette.

Re: “Friendly City Police Contract Negotiations Get Feisty

Fortuna can't pay their excellent police force what they are worth, but STILL refuses to allow cannabis dispensaries within city limits. "Cannabis Business Tax (5-15%)
Local governments (city or county) also have the ability to tax cannabis sales at their discretion. These local cannabis business tax rates can range anywhere between five and 15 percent and are charged at the point-of-sale on top of the products selling price. The funds typically go toward local services.

Re: “'Ground Zero:' Coastal Commission Approves Safety Corridor Project, Worries Sea Level Rise May Leave it Under Water

Thanks to NCJ for the coverage of the Caltrans and HCOAG plan to build a monument to stupidity. As dangerous as driving 101 can be (slow down people!!) the fact that climate change and sea level rise is not understood as a grave danger to public health and safety is a fatal flaw in the conceptual basis of this boondoggle.

Thank you for your clear and comprehensive article on the woefully inadequate plan for 101. We are rearranging deck chairs on the Titanic with blinders on.

Re: “Coastal Commission: If Trinidad Rancheria Can Find Water, it Can Build its Hotel

Are you kidding?

Water goes to whoever can dig the deepest for it...Casinos, hotels and pot?

No one here has ever seen the movie "Chinatown"??

Prepare yourselves for the violence our county supervisors are inviting.

Re: “Questions Swirl Ahead of Trinidad Hotel Hearing

What's the rush? There's a process in place and it needs to be followed. Clearly there should be no approval of the hotel until the water issue is sorted out. And Sundberg needs to have his hand slapped hard for trying to do an end around. This project is one more in a long list of examples of why we have a Coastal Commission to begin with.

Re: “Trinidad Rancheria Believes it May Have Found Water Source for Hotel Project; Sundberg May Have Violated State Lobbying Law

Yeah Hell with water carrying-capacity impacting existing residents and future growth, more sewage flowing onto beautiful beaches, a ruined view, increased traffic and noise and public subsidized infrastructure and studies.

Didn't you know there are hundreds of rooms and idyllic cabins already available all the way to Patrick's Point?

Independent hotels and motels in Eureka have become blighted, vandalized fire-hazards after they began inviting national hotel chains.

Re: “Questions Swirl Ahead of Trinidad Hotel Hearing

How does a project of this magnitude advance this far with so little knowledge of water capacity?

Is that why they hired Eureka's former city manager Tyson?

It took decades of lawsuits and Regional Water Quality Control Board investigations and fines before Eureka's $4 million (1980) Martin Slough sewer interceptor project was finally begun, costing taxpayers $35 million a GENERATION later serving sprawl few taxpayers can afford to own!

Haphazard growth has made Eureka's infrastructure issues chronic with pedestrian, cyclist and motorist fatalities several times higher than state averages.

Having "trickle-down" economic ideologues dominating public policy has been a disaster.

Luffenholtz Creek, like Eureka's Martin Slough Creek, is already impaired and experiencing annual public warnings for fecal coliform contamination.

Greed is unsustainable.

Re: “Trinidad Rancheria Believes it May Have Found Water Source for Hotel Project; Sundberg May Have Violated State Lobbying Law

I'm not sure I see that is lobbying all they said was they found a new water source are you excited about it I don't know what he's not asking for anything this whole Trinidad Hotel thing is just gotten way out of hand there are no first class accommodations in Trinidad other than renting a house not everyone wants to rent a house what Trinidad doesn't understand is a hotel will keep people there longer there are people that would have stayed the night if there were accommodations for them as they exist now there are no hotels closest when is the Holiday Inn in McKinleyville that is very nice but it's not in Trinidad they may even spend two nights and explore more of Trinidad and its beaches but without proper accommodations you're never going to get people to stay overnight

Re: “'Absolutely Preventable'

Condolences to the family.

Maybe if the city of Eureka had faced a $2 million penalty instead of $70,000 for the absolutely avoidable death of 20 year-old Tommy McClain, reforms and better training would have been enacted by city police instead of promoting the perpetrator.

How many more will it take?

Re: “'A Higher Priority'

"Humboldt County Supervisors Bohn, Bass and Fennell are right.

Deregulating development in our watershed will create jobs, and once our water becomes sufficiently polluted, many more jobs will be created cleaning it up and treating the diseases.

They're public interest geniuses" is this kind of thinking that is destroying our climate, and the earth for YOUR children. ....USE YOUR BRAINS and conserve; this is the way to not only more but BETTER jobs.

Re: “'A Higher Priority'

I'm curious - you note, "... cannabis extraction business on the site, which many feared would expose the river to dangerous chemicals." Is the fear that the extraction process itself would expose the river to the chemicals or just the Industrial classification and potential of general industry to do so? Would seem to me a gravel plant would generate far more contaminants from runoff water than a controlled extract plant operation.
