Re: “The Fuzion

This place is horrible they refused to acknowledge that this lady that was at one of their events was bullying and verbally attacking my friends daughter. He posted it on the fb so it would be out there and people would know and they staff denied it all which is bs because I was there and so was another friend of ours. Then we find out that they blocked him from posting on their fb page and deleted the post. Obviously they are hiding something and they don't want anybody to know what happened. This is just wrong.

Plus them having loaded guns is not ok or safe around children i don't care how bad this town is.

Plus they over charge 10 per person for karaoke unless you get the stupid text thing then it's $8
I understand they have bills to pay but that stupid.

I don't recommend this place to anybody

Re: “A Yurok Mushroom Hunter

Nice story, I've heard about Larry for a long time. But it bothers me to think of tons of chanterelles being harvested by commercial pickers to be sold to foreign markets. It gets harder and harder to find wild mushrooms because of the commercializations of wild foods on public lands. It's not right.

Re: “Drug Money

Sheriff Downey has current Sheriff deputies and others within the Humboldt County administration that took pay offs for years from growers. Seen it with my own two eyes. Like the current Coroner Ernie Stewart who took pay offs when he lived out by Honeydew from local growers. Why don't you ask the good Sheriff about his late good pal CPA Jimmy Eddy in Garberville, who cooked the books and made many in SoHum rich by hiding illegal drug profits. Or my personal witness to Sheriff's deputies loading small planes full of confiscated cannabis in the middle of the night aboard planes flown into the Redway airport by German nationals in 1994.

Re: “The Lens of Experience

Hi Thadeus,

Thank you for your thoughtful piece on the lens of experience. My own is rather foggy, both from an upbringing that included a long stint in foster care and associated institutions and an independent early adulthood spread between military service, work with the Del Norte CCC and later my on time as a student and SCL graduate at Humboldt State University. In between, the streets of Barrio Logan in San Diego (greatly changed now, but still filled with faces and people I remember and who greet me like a lost relative), the nation's highway system as a canvasser for magazine subscriptions and a nice, if arduous, Peace Corps contract have further chipped and polished in turn the edges and contours of my world-view.

I have avidly followed this case in what I consider my only home of choice (Humboldt and Del Norte counties) and I, too, hop for a better outcome than no answer, and, further, an answer that satisfies the family of my fellow Jack Josiah. But I am hopeful also that the preliminary finding in which the evidence was not sufficient to hold Kyle is also validated by a thoroughly and fully supportable arrest of whomever is culpable. I am, however, deeply troubled by this death and its unknown circumstances.

There are no cell phone videos, pictures or records at all? How many people called the police as the fight(s) began? Was the knife that was found under the car the murder weapon? How can it not be said, "it is possible it was" if it is not ruled out? There were fibers, blood and a print on the blade. Someone has that print, and it seems they were not experienced criminals if they left it at the scene.

If Zoellner is not culpable, surely he is useless as a witness. He was described by many people as 'knocked out', 'choked out' and sent to the ground repeatedly as well as kicked in the head. It also occurs to me (and likely to police as well) that the women present, for whom Zoellner had arrived to drive home, that they would have fled the scene if they had any involvement in the stabbing itself.

I am, despite these misgivings, bittersweetly heartened that this horror happened somewhere in Arcata. Despite the flaws in the community, I remember it as being beyond simply disapproving of racial malice and rough justice. If a citizen hears something relevant, i remain confident that a better conscience, regardless, will compel the locals or students ho catch wind of anything worth sharing to report it, regardless the redwood/emerald/cannabis curtain of prison-culture anti-snitch paranoia.

I feel for my community up there in that beautiful place, and am glad that you and your family have found your home in it. I hope that it lives up to both our expectations and that an answer that is just, true and healing can be found in what my longest-time foster brother, who came to stay with me for a few weeks in the early 2000s, called, "the kindest place with the [sic] most friendly people I ever met".

I think it will work out, and we'll have justice for Josiah, his family, and if he is indeed innocent of the crime, Kyle too.

Thanks again, and warm regards from Tbilisi, Georgia

Re: “Arcata Moves Forward With Sanctuary City Status

#JusticeForJosiah is necessary for Arcata to be a true sanctuary. Who will they be granting sanction? White only immigrants? How will the city and the APD be guaranteeing sanction and safety for immigrants of color? #DemandAnswers

Re: “Eureka Ordered to Pay $90K in Police Video Case

"So what are your guys gonna do with the 90K? Built a new breakroom, with blackjack and hookers?"

The award is to me, not the North Coast Journal. However, I am intrigued with your suggestion and request you tell me more about these "blackjack and hookers" of which you speak.

Re: “No Homeless People in Southern Humboldt?

The motivation for the "homeless count" to be lower is so the City and County can back up their LIE that they have housed so many people recently. City and County officials have been bragging, FALSELY, about how many people they have gotten into housing. I work EVERY DAY locally with people who have no shelter. There are MORE and MORE people who have become houseless in the past year or so, first timers and people being thrown back on the street, to the green spaces, under bridges, into vehicles, and for short periods of time, in the scant shelter space locally. There is not even close to enough housing to match the number of people that Virginia Bass, Andy Mills, and the their ilk claim have been recently housed. The City of Eureka is being sued for civil rights violations against people with no place to go. The lawsuit, Cobine v. City of Eureka, details how much housing and temporary shelter does NOT exist versus how many people need housing and temporary shelter. Then, the lawsuit clearly asserts what is experienced by anyone who has ever been homeless here: being punished for having no place to go. Local government is trying to overcome that lawsuit and cover up its systematic persecution and denial of basic living needs. Now the City (and County) is adding to its repertoire of LIES: e.g., anyone/everyone can go to the Mission (lie), there's plenty of shelter here (lie), we don't discriminate against homeless people (lie), we just catch 'illegal trespassers' (lie), there's plenty of bathrooms (lie), we take great efforts to feed the hungry (lie) and clothe the naked (lie)etc. ad nauseum. From the City and County (in letters to the editor and other places that are more appropriate for non-politician / non-cop people) the newest LIE they are repeating and wielding is that they have been housing hundreds of people. It's simply NOT TRUE. The City and County do NOTHING to feed hungry people, NOTHING to clothe freezing and wet people, NOTHING to create space for people to sleep, NOTHING to make life or even bare survival any easier or more dignified for people experiencing homelessness. We know plenty of people who get into Betty Chinn's containers, then get kicked out within a short time; we know lots of people injured and sick, admitted into the hospitals, then discharged in short time; we know plenty of parents who simply need housing, and the County doesn't help to provide it but prefers to throw their kids in the foster system for years; we know people going through the high turnover at the MAC (which is rumored to soon close as a transitional shelter). We know even more people who's sleeping areas are raided (throughout the county) and who's vehicles which they live in are impounded, and who go to jail or are made to walk the streets all night and morning when found resting under an awning or tree. I am certain there are not fewer homeless people anywhere in this county; rather, there are MORE people with no shelter.

Re: “Battle Cry

Jennifer, if you're going to bother to respond to a comment, at least address the person's point. Your Letter to the Editor section isn't superior to this forum. What your doing is not "social engagement" but I know that hasn't been the Journal's strong suit.

Re: “The Lens of Experience

I know what happened to Lawson that night. The dumbass got in a fight at a drunken college party. Happens every year at every campus nationwide. Who didn't teach those kids to just walk away? Josiah and his friends are lucky Zoellner didn't die from a brain hemorrhage after Zoellner was initially beaten. All the newspapers would be having another sort of field day altogether. Not one media source in Humboldt has presented the story of Lawson vs Zoellner as anything but a race card of one sort or another. It happened in a way that paints an incriminating portrait of the entire uninvolved community, and nothing of a really stupid drunk college party turned to shit by a handful of kids acting tough. People are disgusted by internet comments? Is this not the year 2017? What do you expect at this point? As far as the adults in media are concerned, they're guilty of hype...an especially sinister kind of hype that divides the people they claim to represent in "the media". Our pool of "news" has largely been a politically correct circus of antagonists.
