Re: “Jersey Boys

Great movie - not as good as seeing it on Broadway. But, totally fun, full of great music, good acting and focuses on the band's story with lots of drama and dialogue.

Re: “Get to Work

Great story which outlines that our government and school`s are leaving behind a valuable and much-needed program. I have said for years our schools need more trade programs alongside the college prep courses. It's almost as if the students that are interested in a trade program are being discriminated against. It all boils town to our government and how the all mighty dollar gets distributed.
Being a self-employed contractor myself, the number one problem I have is finding people that know how to work. That actually want to work, as mentioned in the article. It's a huge problem in this county. Too many millennials are either growing or trimming and making enough money in three months to last until the next growing season. Humboldt County needs to step up and create a trade program model that could be replicated throughout the state. Perhaps then our politicians will take notice that not every student is interested in college.
Thank you, Amy, for a great news article.

Re: “A Culture of Civility

Speaking to the comment by Janice T (who I don't think I know): John Chiv is anything but decent in his writing and public comments. He is unethical and dishonest. He cares not about how his words harm. Oft times, I believe he intends for his words to cause harm. It is disgusting that Chiv, a person of color, is so committed to kissing the ass of the oppressive, white ruling good ole boy class in Humboldt.

Here are some of my comments:

Re: “Sheriff's Office IDs Inmate Who Died in Custody

We love you, Colleen. We will remember and miss you. May your spirit have peace and rest in love and power.

Humboldt County needs to learn how to detox people when they are in County custody! Colleen died because of County negligence and refusal to properly detox people when they capture them and throw them in jail. Humboldt County is responsible for young Colleen's death.

Re: “Get to Work

I too am disappointed that Building Trades is being taking out. This class exposes the kids to many areas of the working world that they can get into. Our country and county need ALL kinds of jobs to round out the work force. Why not set the kids up to succeed in life not to fail. We have college courses. We also need classes for the kids that are not college bound to expose them to possibllities of future jobs.! Don't get rid of building trades.

Do you have an inalienable right to anonymously spew hate speech in our comments section or anyone else's?

Naah--that's what Twitter is for... :-)

Good job, not just managing your site but striving for transparency. I appreciate the effort to keep it both "real" and civil.

So well written, Amy! I appreciated your thorough background as well as the real life impact of Building Trades current status.

Re: “'Undermined'

The blind arrogance of Humboldt County's Board of Supervisors is by itself a disservice to everybody. They repeatedly represent nothing more than cash grabbers, treating their constituents like piggy banks, always available to shake a few more dollars out of us. Our cost of living is going up very fast because of them.

Re: “'Undermined'

County Counsel is also a bit of an odd bird. He had been practicing law in Nevada but it looks like his 'office' was actually a space rented in the office of another law firm. He, however, was in favor of marijuana legalization and had close ties to the Black community and had been elected to serve one year as the head of the Reno NAACP.
Older ads for when he was practicing in Nevada don't make him seem to be the kind of lawyer usually hired to represent a California county.
I do hope that there isn't someone on the BoS who is making Humboldt a dumping ground for out-of-work lawyers.

Re: “A Culture of Civility

Thank you so much for this! NCJ and John Chiv seem to be the only ones willing to maintain any sort of decency standards. I'm sick of having to watch every single thing that I say so that I don't draw a pile-on for no good reason. Sometimes it happens anyway, no matter how careful that you are. This is what is truly stifling freedom of speech; a rabid, vocal minority being allowed to control virtually every local blog, amped by the administration of said blogs and running off almost everyone who is even vaguely decent. You are a breath of fresh air!

Re: “About the Fourth Estate

California has enacted the National Popular Vote bill.

The bill is 61% of the way to guaranteeing the majority of Electoral College votes and the presidency to the candidate who receives the most popular votes in the country, by changing state winner-take-all laws (not mentioned in the U.S. Constitution, but later enacted by 48 states), without changing anything in the Constitution, using the built-in method that the Constitution provides for states to make changes.

All voters would be valued equally in presidential elections, no matter where they live.
Candidates, as in other elections, would allocate their time, money, polling, organizing, and ad buys roughly in proportion to the population

Every vote, everywhere, for every candidate, would be politically relevant and equal in every presidential election.
No more distorting, crude, and divisive and red and blue state maps of predictable outcomes, that dont represent any minority party voters within each state.
No more handful of 'battleground' states (where the two major political parties happen to have similar levels of support) where voters and policies are more important than those of the voters in 38+ predictable states, like California, that have just been 'spectators' and ignored after the conventions.

Re: “Alleged Energy Scam Has Eureka Residents Up in Arms

Thank our POTUS for deregulation! I too was visited by two solicitors from Spark Energy. They were very polite and discussed our local Redwood Authority for electric and stated they were from the gas side and can drop my rates. They asked to see my gas bill. Too bad it's all online. It's ok, we'll wait for you to print one. They had a flyer in their hand and while I was printing I looked up the company. Maybe I got suckered, but my new gas rate is .59 per therm. It is locked in and guaranteed for 12 months. After that we'll see.

This story glosses over what I think is one of the weirdest aspects of the BOS's hiring of Mr. Marcus: he was not the candidate recommended by the advisory panel.(https://www.northcoastjournal.com/NewsBlog/archives/2017/03/07/supes-support-marcus-face-lawsuit-by-weeks-end)
