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.

Re: “Humboldt Deputy on Vegas Shooting: 'Everyone Was Helping'

Wow. Glad they escaped. Sad so many didn't. The fact that a "tool" was used to make the weapons more automatic-like is a stain upon this nation.

Re: “Redwood Pride Starts Over in Arcata

They've lost the main focus of PRIDE, in fact, they shoved it over the ledge to tackle issues that are important and relevant, but NOT at the expense of the roots of PRIDE. We are this VERY day still experiencing prejudice against our community in the military. The committee did nothing to address the proposed Trans Ban nor did they address the deportation of "immigrants" that have served in the U.S. Armed Forces. Instead spent MONTHS addressing the POSSIBLE triggers that people (LGBTQ+) in uniform could have on other people and also condemning the Samba group w\o any facts supporting the POSSIBILITY of cultural appropriation. It SEEMED as though sexual identity\orientation and gender identity were kicked to the curb to assure they could address other political & social grievances. BUT, the real rub is they did to these groups EXACTLY what has been done to the LGBTQ+ community for eons- they labeled, judged and boxed w\o provocation from these specific groups!

Re: “Redwood Pride Starts Over in Arcata

Excellent work Jennifer. As a parent, bi, and alli. I am thankful for the story.
I was happy to see at least two churches representing openness there.
Really want our community to stand together, especially at these troubling times

Re: “TL;DR: Five Reasons NOT to Try This at Home

And yet druggies, stoners and dope advocates can only extol virtues of this magnificent and peaceful industry where nary a criminal is know to be involved. It's time neighbors outed neighbors and criminals were driven into the sea.

Re: “Judge Allows Public Defender Lawsuit to Proceed Amid Attorney Exodus

Doctors and lawyers with the ability to leave have done so. Many who remain don't have the same mobility. This current BOS overall doesn't seem to get it or doesn't care. Time for change.

Re: “Local Law Enforcement Leaders Promise to Protect Immigrants

Local governments and law enforcement agencies that shun involvement in immigration law enforcement are missing an opportunity to protect their communities from criminal immigrant gang activity. Policymakers should take further steps to institutionalize partnerships between state and local law enforcement agencies and ICE in order to address gang and other crime problems with a connection to immigration.

Re: “Court Cracks Down on Skipping Jury Duty

I have done my time but my 81 year old relative is just unable to serve. He can't hear and he was diagnosed with cognitive decline, borderline dementia, but there is no way to remove his name from the list permanently. Having to go to the doctor to have him/her sign off on the form is just ridiculous! Also, he looses his mail so by the time I discover it I usually have to bring him down to the courthouse and talk about all his deficits. This is very upsetting for him. There has to be a better way!! With that said, if you're of sound mind get yourself down to the courthouse when it's your turn to serve!
