Re: “To Wind Mill or Not to Wind Mill?

I was completely for the Terra-Gen project until I read some of the changes made for environmental concerns. The one that concerns me is the transmission lines crossing the Eel River. I cannot believe that FOTER (Friends of the Eel River) have discounted the Horizontal Direct burial of those lines under the Eel River as opposed to hanging the high power lines across and over the River. This is crazy! the technology for direct burial will not disturb the river course nor will the chance of wildland fires be a danger for the area. The strength of the bonded conduit has been proven and one possible reason Terra-Gen didn't object is because of the higher cost of installation. For people who are concerned for ascetically pleasing utilities, looking at high tension power line towers hanging over clear cut swaths of timberland won't be any more pleasing than the windmills themselves.

Re: “The Cost of Wind

I'm in! Count me as one who has been and always will be a proponent of sustainable wind, and solar energy. I've seen hundreds of "Giant" wind turbines stationed in farms across the water in Europe and the data of dead floating sea birds caused by them hasn't been mentioned. Why not? Those turbines have been flying for years. We know how many dead and injured birds and mammals have floated ashore from spilled oil! This is crazy, we can mitigate the time the turbines operate and having one third of the power Humboldt County uses generated by this operation is tremendous. I see the beauty of a fleet of turbines standing on our ridges instead of the ugly dangerous silhouette of only one off shore oil platform.

Re: “Mateel, High Times Create Partnership to Save Reggae on the River

Just like food booths set up at Reggae, would there be possibility for LOCAL Cannabis farmers to have an open Farmers Market at Reggae?

Re: “Closed

Man what a "downer" of an opinion. I can't believe all is lost and I won't stop trying as long as I'm physically able to help contribute something to my community. Flat roof buildings are a challenge to maintain. The houses and apartment buildings in other cities have successfully achieved their construction for hundreds of years. But they do need constant attention more than conventional roofing. The Vet building isn't beyond repair at this point. I hope it can be reborn as a tribute to our veterans and a continuing center for our community.

Re: “When the Shark Bites

Duane and Lost Coast Brewery will always be a part of Humboldt history and pride. Our county's future with "product recognition" will be tested with the passage of new marijuana regulations and the revenue generated by this new phase will be due to not only our reputable product quality but also our entrepreneur advertising. No doubt Duane Flatmo will again step up to the bar.

Re: “Wing and a Prayer

This dance we do with the airlines remind me of a similar ho-down with NFL teams acquiring funds from municipalities for the honor of building their temple stadiums. The results are also the same, I can't afford a 49er ticket not to mention a flight to LA. It's almost cost affective for me to travel to SFO, rent a room and park the truck than it is to fly out of ACV. At least I can get a good night's rest before traveling and arriving on time to my destination. Call it part of the adventure. There's nothing more I can wish for than to take off from ACV on a flight that won't add thirty percent to my destination charges and arrive on time. But I don't think our market is up to the squeeze, for the tribute airlines will require.

Re: “Danger at McCann

I always wondered why we couldn't repair/upgrade the railroad bridge below the McCann crossing. Although as old as that is, it might not be workable.
