Re: “Transitional Housing Project Moves Forward, Grand Jury Report Underscores Need

According to health professionals, every 4th home in every U.S. city houses an alcoholic or abuser of pharmaceuticals.

In fact, it is OCD alcoholics that are "packed together" hiring each other to manage, direct and administer our pubic bureaucracies downtown making a terrible mess far worse than the destitute who lack the resources required to cleverly conceal their addictions.

Re: “Slush Fund or Healthy Reserves?

Wow...not ONE WORD about the RESERVES and out-of-state investments held by campus corporations increasingly privatizing essential and non-essential California campus services. (The Ca. Ed. Code mandates that these "auxiliary" organizations provide ONLY ESSENTIAL services).

The NCJ could provide a huge public service by periodically reminding local taxpayers just how expensive these less-accountable private entities cost us by reviewing their IRS 990 forms.

For example, does HSU, its students and taxpayers really need a "Controller" to manage HSU's privatized housing and food services?

Isn't one Controller in charge of California's entire accounting system enough?

Re: “The Administrator: Five Questions for HSU's New President

"Helping, mentoring, training", being "positive" and the gift of administrative gab are not academic administrative credentials. University presidents are selected by other opposing Affirmative Action.

Wanting to put HSU's past behind it is not "positive", it paves the way for business as usual, it contradicts the academic mainstay of understanding history and debating controversy to develop solutions and resolve conflicts...And it makes it much easier to take home $300K in salary and benefits.

The U.S. Education Act of 1965 guarantees an accessible public university education. Requiring an oppressive $30,000 tuition debt is not "accessible" nor is it "a very very special privilege" for a $12/hour job...if graduates can find one.

Re: “'We Deserve Better'

Sadly, most Americans would be better-off in a free-market by allowing licensed doctors from other nations to practice here since there's little bipartisan interest in subsidizing adequate healthcare.

Unfortunately, few foreign physicians would be willing to return to a privatized system that their country's once had.

However, it would save many older Americans thousands of dollars and the inconvenience of traveling to Mexico and Canada.

Re: “'Our Problems'

Good points Mr. Nelson.

Impeachment? What about the handful of corrupt developers we have right here? (Trump's base).

Didn't you work with some of them on the planning commission?

Nothing has changed.

Re: “'A Comedy of Errors'

In response to Mr. Ducci's inquiry:

I probably hired one of your kids or friends. I didn't start my home and family business in Eureka because of any glossy magazine, or any tourist outreach whatsoever.

Humboldt County sells itself, known the world-over for Redwoods and pot. Miles of pristine forests, trails, beaches, wetlands, lagoons, rivers, bay, a university, college (both easily mistaken for resorts), rich in art, music and theater.

Limited public funds must STOP subsidizing connected industries whether it's unfunded infrastructure for the development industry's big-home subdivisions (McKay), traffic signals for more fast food, (Carrington), welfare for the national retail industry paying poverty wages, (attracting numerous predatory businesses downtown), and ESPECIALLY the tourism industry the most volatile of all...a seasonal rush at best, disappearing overnight when gas exceeds $5/gal.

No, QUALITY OF LIFE is NOT about the QUANTITY of "tourist attractions", but the condition of average working families currently documented as being several times worse in every category of health and human services...repeatedly drawing the attention of the Ca. Att. Gen. This is where public resources and subsidies MUST be focused...and NOT on industries that waste funds for un-provable benefits often exacerbating crises, as in housing.

America's Golden Goose of living wage manufacturing, taxable incomes, "cheap" energy, and full-investments in its human resources began migrating 40 years ago.

It's time for each of these industries to ween themselves off the public teat and produce whatever they feel is needed to promote their businesses, as my family did, within their own financial means.

Step up and be celebrated.

Re: “'A Comedy of Errors'

As "genuine, authentic locals", the Eureka Chamber of Commerce poisoned the concept of tourism outreach for decades spending tens of millions showing residents just how incompetent and wasteful hiring "friends" can be.
