Re: “Drop it Like a Pot

Very enjoyable read. I took up crabbing a long time ago, as it was a hobby of my grandfather's. He passed away, but I started a website in his memory - http://crabbingzone.com

Re: “Sailing on Big Lagoon

Great story. It's also fun to kayak at Big Lagoon. For many people who may not realize it, the east side of the lagoon used to be fully underwater at high tides. Now, if memory serves me correctly, since I haven't been in Humboldt for 8 years, the east side of the lagoon, traversed by Highway 101, is more of an estuary. Fond memories reading the story. In some winters, the lagoon will breach at the north end.

Re: “How to Run

I tried to donate blood for the first time in my life about 4 years ago, and the local county health department telephoned me that afternoon and said I needed to go to see a doctor immediately because I had hepatitis B. I had absolutely no symptoms. I had several blood tests over the course of a year or so, and my doctor said I was a chronic carrier. My sister had Down's syndrome, and my doctor said I probably got it from her as she lived in an institution for a period of time. As the disease progressed all medication stopped working, i was introduced to Health herbal clinic in Johannesburg who have successful herbal treatment to hepatitis B. I spoke to few people who used the treatment here in USA and they all gave a positive response, so i immediately purchased the hepatitis B herbal formula and commenced usage, i used the herbal supplement for only 7 weeks, all symptoms gradually faded away, herbs are truly gift from God. contact this herbal clinic via their email healthherbalclinic @ gmail. com or visit www. healthherbalclinic. weebly. com

Re: “How to Run

Phil had decent advice but seemed to miss the main point of the article. Nice tribute to dad and great advice for sons and daughters. Love you sis! Terry

Re: “How to Run

What a lovely story, Peri! Thank you for sharing this with us. I remember constantly wishing that I had more things to talk to my dad about that would help me feel closer to him when he was at the end of his life, struggling through his cancer treatments.

Re: “How to Run

Such a loving tribute to your father. You were able to give him a connection and sense of purpose at the end of his life, and he gave you his passion. Thanks for sharing, and do, keep running!

Re: “How to Run

Too much running (when do you know enough is enough) leads to old people slowly walking on hobbled knees and other irreversible infirmaries which are the result of repeated skeletal pounding in their youth. Similarly football players (if they don't have concussive brain syndrome) in their later years find life miserable with knee, shoulder, and other skeletal injuries. Get the same benefits through participating in golf, walking, swimming and other sports that improve your later years - not destroy your enjoyment of them. Your ability to enjoy life as an adult / senior is connected to the choices you make along the path - what you participate in, what you dissipate with, what you eat, etc. It takes awareness early in life - something most folks don't develop until it is too late.

Re: “A Home in a Redwood

I think tree houses are great and what not but as Crystal's neighbour I'm not to happy with her.My husband caught her putting her trash in our cans that we pay to have emptied and they won't get picked up if they are over stuffed and tonight she was shooting off illegal fireworks and another neighbor called the police on me thinking that I was shooting off guns because they couldn't figure out where the noise was coming from.Thanks Crystal for being inconsiderate of your fellow neighbours.

Re: “The Road Not (Yet) Taken

Thank you for perhaps the most level headed thing I have read today. I am sure there are many people who are faced with the same problems I recently had. I couldn't find I am sure at least once in your life you had to fill out a form. I use a simple service http://goo.gl/VRnuq7 for forms filling. It definitely makes my life easier!

Re: “Water Boys

As a surf teacher and basic kayak instructor who has worked with local kids since 2007 here in Humboldt, I have witnessed many of our youth catch the stoke of what is possible on our local waterways, but what I know of these two chargers is that they have the type of resilience and persistence that will help them succeed at an elite level in whatever interests they pursue. It takes a special love of the ocean to charge out as these guys do on days when most are content to cozy up in a warm place far from the bone-chilling, tumultuous, relentless northern waves.

Re: “Water Boys

As any self employed person knows, Nate being one of them, you can't qualify for unemployment or disability. He wears a safety glove and is responsible for his own injuries. He has no employees yet.

Re: “Water Boys

What an awesome story. Don't let the state labor people know though. 12 and 14 yr olds working? Using knives? Not allowed!! Well, 14 yr olds can work, but not on fishing boats or with knives or machinery. I hope the bureaucrats leave these boys alone and let them grow up and excel.

Re: “Foraging

Great article that just touches on the wild edibles that we have surrounding us in Humboldt. I was wondering if there were anyone locally who was deemed an "expert" who would be willing to take people out to do some foraging or some type of class or seminar locally that is available to take?

Re: “Wild Wood

Carving without professional instruction is not a smart idea. Just learning how to sharpen tools takes weeks. Not a smart idea to follow these instructions. Call 444-2717 and The Eureka Woodworking Association will help you out and get a professional to give you a start.

Re: “Wild Wood

The new Eureka Woodworking Association has free wood for members, classes on woodworking specializing in reclaimed wood, and more. Would have been great to be in your article. We are a branch of the American Woodturning Association and are just about to file for our 501 C. We have a work shop space for meetings and have had packed meetings the last two months. Please call 444-2717 for information. https://www.facebook.com/Eureka-Woodworkin…

Re: “Cray Cray

Signal crayfish are native to northern states west of the Rockies, but were introduced to California in the early 1900s.

Re: “The Reluctant Cyclist

so appreciate your candidness about venturing out on two wheels, socially and physically uncertain and going the distance anyway. Likely your pieces increase the number of cyclists giving it a try and doing so more safely and more drivers learning about things they/we might not consider in our rush to wherever.

Re: “A Home in a Redwood

I wondering if anyone knows how hard it would be to get a permit to build another tree house in Humbolt County--near Eureka?

Re: “The Reluctant Cyclist

I recently started riding again, after my bike was stolen two years ago. I can't say enough how much I enjoy my recreational ride along the bay and ocean up here in Crescent City on a sunny day. I once rode on busy streets with no problem, but I'm now retired and will avoid busy streets. I've been watching YouTube videos of bicycling in Amsterdam (do a search) and would love to have that kind of bike infrastructure here.
