Re: “Kitchen Sentenced to Eight Years in DUI Manslaughter Case

The district attorney apparently believed that the maximum punishment for Ms. Kitchen was 11 and 1/3 years in prison with a denial of probation. The defense apparently believed that the maximum sentence was 7 and 2/3 years in prison with a prison sentence suspended and Ms. Kitchen placed on felony probation. I don't understand the comments attacking Judge Cockrum. He agreed with the prosecution and denied probation. He disagreed with the defense on the maximum sentence and gave her an extended time in state prison. What were you thinking he should do, ignore the law that was established by the legislature as to the punishment set in the penal code? If you believe that the crime was inadequately addressed, confront the prosecution who chose the crimes to charge. You can always run for district attorney you know.

Re: “Kitchen Sentenced to Eight Years in DUI Manslaughter Case

Cockran doesn't have enough experience (just "appointed"...not even elected) to understand the full ramifications of this minimalist sentence....if it was his daughter that Kitchen had killed I bet he would have found a way to impose a much stricter sentence....I hope Kitchen is scared to death when she walks through the doors of what will be her home for the next 8 years....

Re: “Dozens Gather to Remember Josiah Lawson at Beach Vigil

As a member of the Justice for Josiah Committee and Eureka community & NAACP member, I want to thank the North Coast Journal for the sensitive article and beautiful pictures of the September 15, 2018 monthly vigil for David Josiah (DJ) Lawson, an HSU student who was viciously murdered at an off campus party on April 15, 2017. His mother, Charmaine Michelle Lawson and his family, friends and her supporters will continue to hold these monthly vigils in the community until his murderer is brought to justice. Moreover, Ms. Lawson, works tirelessly with the California Faculty Association and other individuals and groups to urge the Chancellor ans Board of Trustees of the California State University system to take responsibility and make necessary changes to the policies and procedures for the recruitment, retention and education of students, particularly students of color and Indigenous Peoples, to ensure their safety on campus and in the communities in which they live, learn, work and play. Thank you again for capturing the love, laughter, tears and determination we bring to honor the memory of DJ and his mother and grieving family.

Re: “The Voynich Manuscript

There is a key to cipher the Voynich manuscript.
The key to the cipher manuscript placed in the manuscript. It is placed throughout the text. Part of the key hints is placed on the sheet 14. With her help was able to translate a few dozen words that are completely relevant to the theme sections.
The Voynich manuscript is not written with letters. It is written in signs. Characters replace the letters of the alphabet one of the ancient language. Moreover, in the text there are 2 levels of encryption. I figured out the key by which the first section could read the following words: hemp, wearing hemp; food, food (sheet 20 at the numbering on the Internet); to clean (gut), knowledge, perhaps the desire, to drink, sweet beverage (nectar), maturation (maturity), to consider, to believe (sheet 107); to drink; six; flourishing; increasing; intense; peas; sweet drink, nectar, etc. Is just the short words, 2-3 sign. To translate words with more than 2-3 characters requires knowledge of this ancient language. The fact that some symbols represent two letters. In the end, the word consisting of three characters can fit up to six letters. Three letters are superfluous. In the end, you need six characters to define the semantic word of three letters. Of course, without knowledge of this language make it very difficult even with a dictionary.
If you are interested, I am ready to send more detailed information, including scans of pages showing the translated words.
And most important. In the manuscript there is information about "the Holy Grail".

Re: “Amid Controversy Over New Policy, KHSU Volunteer Tried to Thwart Studio Move

Art, I think you might be on to something, about multiple HSU accounts. Why would anyone "dislike" that listeners enjoy hearing real people doing live radio? Because they can get programmed, bland, non-spontaneous radio anywhere these days. And then general managers wonder why people aren't listening. Because safe, sanitized, predictable radio is BORING. Which is how KHSU will end up, when the University is done with it. If you want an actual example of sabotage, it's what HSU is doing right now. Despicable.

Re: “Main and Loleta

I lived in loleta in 82/83 i was only 7 at the time, i had moved over from England with my mother who has now passed away and my 3yo sister. My first memories were of the smell, the dairy used to have this smell to it that as a child, intrigued me and my freinds when we rode past on our bikes. I remember the trains that used to take forever to pass, being from England, our trains are small compared to those over there. My memories of the shops are amazing i remember every detail even the penny sweets i remember having 1c on them! Im so happy it looks like it used to although i cant find the gas station and the motel that im sure was next door to it on google earth, i have found my old house just off pershing street is still there too! All i can say is i miss it soo much and i would love to take my children and go back sometime. And i nearly forgot, Halloween. Its hard to tell people here in England about halloween in Loleta, i remember the whole town out at night im sure even the fire station did something and we ended up at the market? Correct me if im wrong but im sure there were stalls where we had chilli dogs and things there? God i miss that place! All my love from England!

Re: “The Price of a Burger

Perhaps you had better speak with Mr. Larose and seek remedial math tutoring. You claim the price of a biodegradable food box to be 85 cents/unit. The actual cost is < .07$/unit as per the advertised price per case at a popular online retailer:

It is obvious that this is merely an editorial intended to show support for a group of advertisers, but please don't insult our intelligence by pretending to do math and then blatantly fudging the figures when they're not supporting your narrative.

Re: “Amid Controversy Over New Policy, KHSU Volunteer Tried to Thwart Studio Move

Cindy, I agree completely. It's media gentrification and it makes me sick to my stomach. A local treasure going the way of roboradio. I'm a regular listener all hours, some of the best shows are on late. That's what people want to hear, the voice and vibe of a real live person, with you in the moment. Completely against the university's supposed mission to be a strong local voice.

Re: “Amid Controversy Over New Policy, KHSU Volunteer Tried to Thwart Studio Move

For nearly 40 years volunteers have done live programming over night. What events have occurred that would lead risk management to lock down the station? What is the value in not having a live operator? When I got my FCC license stations were required to be attended during broadcast hours. Is this a push for automated programs, or just dumping the diversity in programming? I am so sad to hear about the internal strife at the station that is a community service. When I worked at KHSU in the 1980's we had about 100 volunteers. And we branded the station as Diverse Public Radio. Silencing voices is wrong.

This article is SO OFF POINT, obviously you havent worked on a line or shopped for a restaurant. These numbers youve compiled are a great way to put people out of business, especially the ones who use local products and pay their employees well! Stupid.

Re: “Dishing it Out

When I was in high school, and later when I attended HSU, I worked at several food establishments, but always in the back. In high school, I washed dishes, but the chefs took a liking to me and allowed me to help with prep work- it turned out that I was pretty handy with a knife. Over the years, I managed to do okay in the back of the house, but one day both of the scheduled waitresses called in "sick"; it was a picturesque early fall day, so I'm sure that the doc that they were visiting was on a river somewhere. As I was the only person available, I was enlisted to be the wait staff for that evening. I tried to convince the owner of the establishment that this was a terrible idea, but there weren't any other options. Fast forward 2 hours: I informed a customer who was barking orders at me that she "could go F#

Well said, Gordon. Clearly HSU's damage control is glued to this thread with at least a couple multiple-account clickers. I've been paying attention to different local news comment sections for years,, this thread generated too many likes/dislikes in less than a day for even half to be genuine.
