Re: “Vote Sundberg!

Sorry, I spoke with a grower in Willow Creek who has applied and paid for all of his permits and had still not received county permits unlike the permits obtained by emerald family farms. The emerald family farms who contributed to Sundberg and Bass. What a nice thing to have in Willow Creek so we can smell it all summer long and all of the runoff that goes into the Trinity River.

Re: “The County Needs You

It's difficult for residents to be inspired by an organization unwilling to defend its own findings by requiring a response from local public agencies with the same force of law faced by average residents who would dare ignore official GJ inquiries.

Re: “Vote Sundberg!

Holding incumbents accountable for problems that developed on their watch is perfectly acceptable, and in fact a necessary part of a functioning democracy. Appeal to emotion is not a valid defense against points on an issue, it is a logical fallacy upon which propaganda and disingenuity is founded. Your pearl clutching defense offers nothing besides claiming standing and attempting to defer responsibility off of a candidate that's deeply in the pocket of your organization's largest donors. Not a complimentary look in a "grassroots" organization.

Legality to me means you have a nice potted pot plant in your home. You cut some off to smoke as will or needs be.

Re: “Vote Madrone!

I am glad Sundberg has done so much for Mckinleyville but I sure don't see that he has done anything for Willow Creek unless backing emerald family farms after they contributed to his campaign is considered doing something for our area.

Re: “Vote Sundberg!

No thanks! After Sundberg's trip to Sacramento and taking money from his pot friends I won't be voting for him and I know a lot of others that feel the same way. I spoke with a grower in Willow Creek and they were still waiting for their county permits, that they have paid for, so they can get state permits but Sundbergs friends at emerald family farms already have their permits. Doesn't seem fair.

Re: “It's Not Over 'Til It's Over

Willow Creek already stinks thanks to emerald family farms and we don't need anymore pot industry of any kind close to our town. Everyone looks at the grow at the old millsite and asks if they are growing only what they are permitted for.

Re: “Vote Sundberg!

Building our way into the third housing collapse and bailout since the 80's creates jobs alright....MORE BIG HOMES!!

Tens of millions of American families foreclosed and bankrupted in the collapse can find work in all those predatory industries rushing here to exploit the New Depression...turning poverty into destitution.

Jobs, jobs, jobs...

As an insurance agent, Sundberg earns more selling to those big homes.

Win-win!!

There's also big-bucks selling health insurance. Is this why Sundberg won't support a resolution for universal health care in California?

Win-win-win!!!

Democrats my Ass!!

Re: “A Teachable Moment

Lionizing the U.S. president who opened the floodgates of U.S. imperialism, (that the U.S. Founding Fathers fought a revolution against), is outrageous. One million Filipino civilians perished under McKinley's conquest.

Put his statue with all the others commemorating history's most-infamous, include their good-deeds too, and let the public decide proportionality...as they should in Arcata.

(Hitler put Germans back to work after the depression, was a regular church-goer, artist, funded the Autobahn, and admired Zionism...posterity decides proportionality, as is our right).

Re: “It's Not Over 'Til It's Over

Corrupt developers everywhere are emboldened by the corrupt developer/U.S. president.

This story should be front page news along with another planning commissioner who illegally tore up his wetlands while refusing to check his mail-box-full-of-warnings.

These revelations are critical for voters to make informed decisions to GET RID of supervisors Bass and Sundberg in this June's election! Developer-financed politicians and their developer appointees to the planning commission are serving their industry's interests, not the public's.

Thank you Mr. Miller!!!

Re: “Driving Change

I had to smile at the recommendation of Colin Fiske to "go electric" when pondering which vehicle one should drive. Those of us who live check to check may find the cost of such a vehicle prohibitive. After spending five years riding my bicycle and taking the bus, I landed a job which required a car. A buddy of mine sold me his 1996 Toyota Corolla, in great shape and with plenty of life left, for $750. I looked at the prices of new electric vehicles and found a range of $23,000 for a Mitsubishi to more than $69,000 for a Tesla. The average for the nine vehicles I found listed was more than $37,000. So, like many luxuries in this day and age, environmentally-conscious driving is only a possibility for those who can afford it.

Re: “Dude, Am I Stoned?

A better question would be, "Am I stupid?"

If you need an app to know when you are stoned, you are in worse shape than we thought.

Better you should explore life without drugs, for a change...
