Re: “'Dictators and Fascists'

Amy's opinions are a good example of the failure of public schooling in history, biology, political and social science.

Public shaming feels bad but it's not fascism, a dictatorship or coercion.

Widespread ignorance is what made the U.S. #1 in needless COVID-19 deaths in the world. How many have died from the vaccine?

While most of the world's governments acted early in promoting masks and social distancing, the failure of others enabled the anticipated rapid mutation of COVID-19, just like the common flu virus, requiring an updated vaccine every year.

Vaccines have been saving lives for generations.

Re: “Piling Up

There's a simple reform if we had a majority of public-interest supervisors instead of the usual sycophants legislating to benefit the deepest pockets.

Require all developments in our headwaters to obtain water carrying-capacity certification from independent professionals.

Or...wait for further biodiversity collapse and water depletion...not without the violence that accompanies scarcity.

Re: “McGuire Looks to Create Statewide TOT Tax Collection System for Short-term Rentals

Good luck in Humb. Co. where there are 1,000 miles of dirt roads and hundreds of non-permitted structures. A team of full-time employees, methodically searching google earth, would never see most of them.

Every decade the U.S. Census grossly under-counts our rural population and many "homesteaders" refuse to participate...fearing discovery of their illegal structures...but demand more services...

Meanwhile, half of Humboldt County's homes are rentals...a constituency no one wants to touch but should be levied nominal taxes per square foot...if Humboldt County's right wing supervisor majority were serious about building an affordable housing fund.

The lack of affordable housing costs Humboldt millions of dollars every year from the fallout due to poverty and homelessness.

Re: “Too Big

We absolutely have the wrong majority of county supervisors still continuing the long-discredited orthodoxy of trickle-down economics.

Less in our headwaters is more...

Re: “Eureka Mayor 'Angry' About Alleged EPD Text Messages

Instead of being "angry" Eureka's mayor and city council can direct staff to review Eureka's vetting practices for hiring, retaining and promoting its civilian police officers.

This is LONG OVERDUE!

Does Eureka give preference to hiring veterans like other cities? Is their military record being checked? Their social media posts? Their affiliations or shared views with violent racist and sexist organizations, blogs, etc?

Violence, racism, sexism, homophobia, and gang memberships are common on military bases and aircraft carriers. These people have no business being recruited for, or serving on, civilian police forces.

At $200/hour pay and benefits and millions more in wrongful death lawsuits, Humboldt County residents need to know more about the hiring practices, psych evaluations and the percentage of military veterans being handed lethal firearms with little more than a 2-year junior college certificate.

Re: “Missing

Jene McCovey definitely deserves a dedicated profile report.

Just a few years ago she attended the U.S. Navy's pubic Q&A meeting at Eureka's Red Lion Hotel where the navy promoted bombing-practice off our coast. The "Raging Granny's" were there to perform one of their cleverly reworded songs.

From her wheelchair, Jene drew all the public attendees into a single group pointing out the misstatements and omissions on the navy's large color displays.

Then she led the group into a native prayer song.

None of the half-dozen navy pubic-relations officers participated, huddling together across the room like misbehaving children during a "time-out", poorly coping with their shame.

It would be nice to see a photomontage of Jene's life and activism. Surely I'm not the only one with cell-phone photos.

Re: “Remembering Denver Nelson: 1941 to 2021

Wow...not one word about how this long-serving commissioner advocated for water carrying capacity science in our headwaters, or another member of the development industry replacing his, appointed by supervisor Bohn.

Three decades later and none of his surviving proteges or local environmentalists are demanding water carrying capacity certification for all remote developments in the face of worldwide depletion of fresh, clean water and collapse of biodiversity that relies on it.
