Re: “California Geological Survey Issues New Tsunami Maps for Humboldt County

My own math leads me to conclude that in a worst case scenario tsunami that Manila, California residents would have between 2 and 3 minutes to be at a tsunami evacuation area before they were on their way to a Bayside or wherever. My wife was ordered to evacuate from our 200 home neighborhood once. She grabbed the kids and left. She made it almost a mile in 2 hours. We were lucky that they got the chemical spill in hand and the wind died to zero mph that day. Without sirens in operation most people will spend half of their 2 minutes finding and reading the warning on their phones, providing electricity and cell towers do not suffer from the seismic event that causes the tsunami.

Re: “HACHR Denies Allegations as City Opposes Needle Program

As they do not understand the simple word exchange I am against their existence personally. Having thousands of needles collected at different sites each year is proof that this group is not operating in the interest of all the citizens who are not addicted to drugs. My mother told me in the 1950’s about how on the 1940’s heroin came to Harlem and thousands were addicted after their first high. Heroin and especially meth are far more addictive now and still people choose that glamorous life here causing Humboldt to have 6 times the national average of homeless drug addiction. Whatever we are doing here is completely wrong and it endangers all of us who did not choose to be addicts. Maybe some of them will hitchhike to another county if we quit enabling and coddling them. I do not know, but I have zero empathy for them and would not personally assist them.

Re: “Eureka's 'Moonshot' Program Aims High

In the 1960's it was possible to take a gravel road through Vandenberg to the ocean. There were signs all along the road saying it was a federal crime to stop and look at the many missile launch sites you passed. When we got near the beach there were thousands of dead seabirds littering the hills and the road itself. I learned years later from an acquaintance who was involved there that it was the result of the toxic gases that rockets and missiles emit when launched and he told me it is the same in Florida at Cape Canaveral.

Re: “Planning Commission Denies Wind Farm Project

When global warming kills the last redwood folks will wish their grandparents had had better vision. But at least they did not have to worry in their own time and isn't that all that matters.

Re: “Gray Whale Found Washed Up on Agate Beach

I think if they have some freed up money they need to buy a couple 3 inch capacity trash pumps and find a bunch of volunteers who could be texted, called and emailed to show up at strandings not unlike volunteer fire fighters to attempt to cut off nets and use the water pumps to move sand away and create a channel for the giant fish to get back to sea. Scientists standing around wringing their hands makes me want to puke.

Re: “AORE Campus Challenge: Everyone can participate!

With, I read last year, 20% of HSU's students not having permanent living quarters I feel they are a shoo-in.
