Re: “C.R. faces the music [now with official P.R.]

(HERE'S MY COMMENT YOU ALREADY DELETED. DO IT AGAIN, I DARE YOU) It certainly is a priority of CR to spend hours and hours of staff time to televise its football games, for which it receives ZERO $$$ ad revenue or underwriting support (which is just stupid in and of itself). Meanwhile, CR can't be bothered to continue televising any of its classes like it used to, or even televise the board meetings of its own Trustees -- EVEN THOUGH THEY ARE ALREADY FILMED BY CR STAFF.

Re: “Good Cops Aren't Afraid of Cameras

Well, either I have "no real status," or I'm responsible for ruining all media relations (in league with Kim Verbena Starr, who has viciously opposed my First Amendment rights more pointedly than any cop). Can't have it both ways, Bill/Anonymous.

Re: “Good Cops Aren't Afraid of Cameras

Has it taken you this long to catch on? I've been threatened by the local cops when photographing them before -- even by the PCS rent-a-cops they used to have running around Old Town a few years back. The EPD even closed off the spigot and stopped sending the Humboldt Sentinel their press releases for a few weeks last year just because they didn't like our coverage of their (arguably unconstitutional) DUI checkpoints which catch fewer drunk drivers than patrols do (but they sure do bring in that federal grant money). Another law enforcement agency got into some serious hot water for playing games like that recently. It was that exact 'public servant' Drake Goodale who gave me my only non-traffic violation conviction in my life -- jaywalking in Arcata when he was on the force there. Admittedly, this was in 1999, and my hair may have been too long at the time. He's now the Old Town patrol, and he sure does behave like he owns the place. These are the sorts of issues a police review committee would be able to assess...but politicians across the spectrum, despite their previous expressions of openness or even support, have quietly dropped any actual effort to make this a reality.

Re: “Former Speaker Speaks

Somebody fact check Judy -- that's 8 Democrats, 2 Republicans and 2 independents running in the 2nd Congressional District.

Re: “Eureka Wal-Mart Confirmed

For once, I will happily take Ryan Burns' advice and not feed into a fight that neither of us are interested in.

Skippy's piece stands as its own work, just as the work of the Journal does. Anyone interested in the Sentinel's latest take on the story is welcome to go here to do so.

Re: “Eureka Wal-Mart Confirmed

I've only just tuned into this on-line scuffle over our mutual Walmart coverage, having just returned from a marathon Eureka School Board meeting-- I didn't see the Journal there, of course I haven't seen them there all year, but that's another story!

I've reviewed the Journal article in question, and I've re-looked at Skippy's write-up, and I didn't see any basis for the accusations hinted at here.

I certainly don't want any anonymous comment makers calling Judy Hodgson 'sleazy' or any other names on behalf of the Sentinel.

With that said, it wouldn't be the first time that the Journal made an unfounded attack against my character and failing to even contact me for a response. They have the chance this time, but so far, no calls from Judy. I'll be waiting.
