Re: “North Coast Railroad Authority Dodges Legal Challenge, Supports East-West Study

The fact that similar dreams were recently dashed in Coos Bay, OR should offer a a hint of what is not possible here. The railroad, port, and overseas buyers of coal all existed and were in negotiations, and it failed because it was still too expensive to upgrade that line to bring coal down from Portland. So, the NCRA + local support is telling us that wasting money on thinking about building a brand new line is reasonable use of public funds? Where are the tea-partiers now? Ask Green Diamond or Humboldt Redwood what it would cost to build a haul road from here to Red Bluff, my money says they would laugh in your face.

Re: “Committee to Study Something

Hwy 299 Oregon Mtn got bulldozed and graded, and now Buckhorn Summit is getting the same facelift. Shipping companies are investing their $$ in using trucks to move containers East-West, not trains folks.

Re: “Billboard Blight

How about advertising that says welcome to Humboldt Bay and lists locations for visitors to patronize, rather than encourage us locals to buy tires or mortgage or cabinets. Leave that crap for the paper, or webpage.
