Re: “Hypocrisy Now!

Adopting a vegan lifestyle out of compassion is misguided but kind. Farming for high quality nutrients relies on bone meal, fish emulsion, and other animal products. Harvesting grain kills millions of mice and countless other small mammals caught up by large threshers - ask any farmer. Only one animal died to provide me with steak versus potentially hundreds to feed me bread. Also this:

My heart is breaking I pray we get through this. I'm not related but he was a young aspiring life and to be taken violently hurts our community.

Re: “Not Guilty Plea Entered in Fatal Stabbing of 19-Year-Old HSU Student

Not true, I have lived in Memphis for over 20 years so I have experience within the black community but I also lived in Tupelo Ms., Houston Tx., Santa Rosa Ca. and now here. The one thing I have observed, in my experience, is that when the predominant race feels like they are losing ground they become very possessive and violent. And up here it's predominantly white. As a native of Yurok and Hoopa and being married to a black man if 20 years I know white anger firsthand. So I believe the white young man initiated it to instigate race relations. So sad he cannot find something better to do. Wok-lhew

Re: “Myth of the Invisible Ships

PS: A further consideration.... If I were ever in some analogous circumstance, and if I were near others, I would probably do four things:
1. Question my own sanity.
2. Look around me to see if anyone else was seeing what I was seeing.
3. If nobody else seemed to see it, you figure out the rest.
4. Mayby, if I was brave enough, and a close family member had happened to be nearby when I thought I had the 'hallucination,' at the end of the day I might privately and carefully ask, "did you see what I saw?"

Kinda funny if you ask me :-)

Re: “Myth of the Invisible Ships

I think I might be able to somehow "imagine" their mindset. I would say that surely these people who believed in, and probably saw, spirits of all shapes on a regular basis, "saw" the relatively silent sailing ship, but they obviously must have initially considered it to be a spirit of some sort, and initially deserving of the same level of attention that other such "spirits" normally received. As with other such "spirits," they probably were hoping and praying that if they ignored it, perhaps it would simply "go away," and leave them alone in peace.

Hey, I must confess I have actually "seen" some of these in my own day, and that is exactly how I tend to respond to most of them. As in a zoo with the sign, "don't feed the animals," most folks, when confronted with something that almost appears as a hallucination, will tend to try to "not feed" it.

However, should the "hallucination" begin to deploy longboats (much easier for a native to understand), and to begin heading in my direction with strangely colored and clothed men inside of them, you had better believe it, I would suddenly realize that my first strategy was simply not working, and I had better do something better, and quick!

Re: “UPDATE: Eureka Postpones Vote on Temporary Shut Down of Visitor's Center

BTW, just a note to all that the $571.500 budget does not all go to the Eureka Chamber of Commerce and Visitor Center on Broadway. The Convention and Visitors Bureau that is in Old Town Wants it all. Not only is the location not visitor friendly to find when entering Eureka From the South it may be difficult for many visitors to our city to just drop in. The location on Broadway has served our community for many years and can continue to do so. Why not share the friendliness to our visitors and support each other? The politics you speak of were drummed up by a recent previous president of the Chamber Board who is no longer there but supports the Old Town Location and would love nothing better than to take all of the budget and dump it into their pockets.

Re: “Share Your Stories About The Two Days That Shook Humboldt

I was only 11, but I remember that day very clearly. When the first quake hit, myself, a friend and my little sister were alone in my living room (my mom was outside) and all of a sudden, everything just started shaking and harder than I'd ever felt before. The sound reminded me of riding in my grandparents motor home, all the dishes clacking together. Things spilled out of the cupboards and started to fall all around. We ducked and covered our heads like they taught us in school. It seemed like it went on forever. When it stopped, everything was a mess and immediately the fear grew of having to evacuate for a tsunami. Luckily, that wasn't the case. Later that night my whole family slept together in the living room and we had two other large earthquakes. I remember my head lying on the ground and feeling it shake under me as my mom screamed to get to the hall way, which was the "safe place. " I remember in the morning watching the news of the Scotia stores all on fire. It seemed like the end of the world at the time.

Re: “UPDATE: Eureka Postpones Vote on Temporary Shut Down of Visitor's Center

It would be a shame to close down right before the high season. People need to look at the conflict of interest going on right under their noses. The location of the current Chamber on Broadway is Ideal. The Concrete Anchor Outside let's people know you have arrived. Eureka!! Parking is readily available for large Motor Homes, Trailers and the like. Think about it People!!

Re: “101 Closed Until at Least Next Week; Rain Forecast to Return

Good luck getting county residents to vote yes on another transportation tax like Measure Z. We all pay for Bell Springs Road to be there when we need it, but apparently we aren't supposed to get what we pay for. How many of the "locals" on Bell Springs pay their fair share in taxes? And, that Penske moving truck, the one that got stuck and contributed to this drama? What do you think was in the back of a moving truck in SoHum in April?
County officials: Open up Bell Springs again. It's a public road, and Humboldt residents drive roads like that every day. Give us back what we paid for.

Re: “The Craftsman

I worked at Blue Ox as a millwright, truck driver and general hand in 1979-80. That was also the time in which my father was dying of cancer, and Eric and Viviana were both employers and Mom & Dad to me. Eric's poetry about what he and his comrades went through in Vietnam was deeply moving to me, and their work with Veterans is a national treasure. I look forward to seeing The Veterans' Monologues Project when it comes to town. Bob Olofson, Eureka, CA.

Re: “Who Was Jeff Zander?

I served with Lance Corporal Jeff Zander at the DoD language school in Monterey, CA. He acted as a mentor to me until we had a falling out over a road trip to buy some M-14 rifle stocks for the drill team he headed up. Back then, Jeff was a weasel who twisted words and falsely claimed permissions he didn't really have --- like a non-existing approval by our unit commander to drill with rifles with unsheathed bayonets, in an incident that resulted in a Marine getting his arm sliced open during a drill performance. Jeff's white collar crimes are not heinous compared to others I've seen in my lifetime, but I'm not at all surprised he committed them.

Re: “Share Your Stories About The Two Days That Shook Humboldt

I was 12 and we were getting ready to do the hike through Fern Canyon. None of us felt it, but the park ranger came out and said we would have to wait because trees could come down. When we started hearing about the quake none of us believed it. When we got home that day it was very shocking. My father worked out of the county yard in Ferndale and was gone everyday from sun up to sun down for weeks after helping with the clean up.

Re: “Cannabis and Carbon

The CO2 converted to plant matter should roughly zero out over a very short time scale because of the short lifecycle of the product. Simplifying a bit, CO2 is converted to plant matter which is then burned and/or discarded and left to decay returning that CO2 back to the atmosphere. This all happens on timescales of less than a year, generally.

The challenge is the energy used to grow, process, and transport marijuana releases additional CO2 above and beyond the roughly net-zero growth/harvest cycle.

One variable that must be considered when weighing the carbon benefits of indoor vs. outdoor is a concept called land use change. This essentially tries to quantify the potential impact of converting land currently being used to provide one service (grow food, provide habitat, etc.) to grow marijuana. The increased crop density and accelerated growth cycles that are attainable with indoor operations may significantly push back on the carbon benefits of using the sun instead of electricity.

Answering the question of whether indoor or outdoor has a lower carbon foot print is nuanced, and requires consideration of variable such as land use change, whether the electricity is generated from renewable sources or not, the origin of fertilizers used, the impact of land management and agricultural strategies, etc. Its not a simple question. But if youre lucky enough to know your farmer, asking questions can go a long way towards a gut check of the potential carbon footprint of the product you are purchasing.
