Re: “Two Arcata Eateries Call it Quits, Cite Cannabis Downturn

I liked these restaurants, and I am sorry to see them go.

Re: “A Home in a Redwood

Boo! Not the place to air your grieivances. You have more cognitive dissonance in your mind than anything your neighbor could create

Re: “Strumming Up a Case

Oscar was recently greeted with a large contingent from the police department. They put on quite a show which although flattering in the amount of attention they gave Oscar seemed to be kind of morality show. First the presence are so many officers would give anyone in the area the impression that a major Criminal is probably present. I don't think that musicians busking in a public place meet that Criterion. Furthermore they attempted to intimidate anyone who would give Oscar any money in compensation for his noteworthy efforts by arresting one of his admirers on the spot. What a waste of taxpayers money to put on such a show.

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

The US Chamber of Commerce is a corporate-led organization with agendas that have no bearing to small towns such as Eureka. Get off their bandwagon, the sooner the better, to free this city from the unwanted interference of out of area political influence. Most of the voters couldn't give a rat's whisker for Mr Trump's approval for the local dogcatcher. These funds will just as well spent by local organizations

Re: “ACLU Angst

I'm a member of the ACLU and that does not prevent me from personally despising the Citizens United Supreme Court decision, neo-Nazis and everything that they do, and the effect that corporations have over health, social, and scientific policies. And I think that the ACLU, though its scope is limited, is doing a lot of good. A good reason to join the ACLU --the work they are doing to fight unjust voting laws.

Re: “Before You Stiff Your Server

There is something called bad service. I once went to the fish eatery with all the abstract art on the exterior walls. The owner hired a group of waitresses, who he had once worked with at some other restaurant, probably the Eureka Inn. They waited on people on the basis of whether they knew you already. We had to wait at the back of the line, for more than an hour. I don't think the place went out of business because of "bad art". I did make a small tip, but I never returned to the place.

Re: “Update: Arkley Draws Big Crowd to Talk about Homelessness

To say that the transient population is at the head of Eureka's problems takes a little self deception. The problems caused by drug use, gang activity, and low income are probably more pressing issues. Eureka isn't pretty, and getting rid of visibly homeless people, even if was an easy thing to do, wouldn't help that much. Whole neighborhoods could use a lot of sprucing up. There used to be funds available to help paint houses. Not any longer. The street tree program has only a limited amount of trees. The streets are not cleaned. Many poorer areas are not served by a community center. I have lived in the Bay Area, and a community activity center was the signature of an upbeat, attractive place to live. We could build walls to limit the noise from thoroughfares and commercial districts. And the public health-- when you visit any of these places, the first thing you notice, is how healthy everyone looks. Perhaps the employers in Humboldt County could try to make sure that their employees are better cared for. Accomplishing all these signs of prosperity isn't as simple as chasing a few bums away, by cutting the budget of any government program, easing up on zoning and environmental restrictions, or cutting taxes. It takes a lot of love. Arkley's plan is the reverse of that.
