Re: “From the Camps to the Courthouse

I've been left of center, left to dry, left alone, left wondering, left with few options, left to my own devices, and I've left dysfunctional relationships but in this picture I'm on the right, and right to demonstrate that the City of Eureka needs a cure in its relationship to homelessness. CUREureka!

Re: “UPDATE: Temporary Homeless Sleeping Area Abruptly Halted (with Video)

Nezzie, thank you for taking this video, and for being so respectful to the inhabitants of this village, which the City of Eureka created with its lack of creativity, lack of respect for others, and lack of self-respect. City of Eureka employees are paid from taxpayer monies and this is the best they can do for the least fortunate among us. Wow! I know they don't have the imaginations to picture themselves in this estate, because if they had they would mobilize amongst themselves and orient their work toward a nobler purpose. "I want to get everybody to a safe, warm, dry place -- today," says Nezzie. Why don't City of Eureka employees take to heart this simple sentiment? Do any of them have a sigh of remorse that they're spending taxpayer dollars creating this, this MESS? I know for a fact they are past shame because shame is a human feeling, and it's clear those who created this mess have no shame, hence no humanity. And they would have you believe the least fortunate among us have no shame and created this mess. So, whether you want it or accept it, City of Eureka, shame on YOU.

"True mental health issues on their own are rarely debilitating," the coroner says. What is that supposed to mean?

Re: “Council Moves forward with Container Community for the Homeless

Carol Jones, your analysis is spot-on. Under effective leadership Humboldt County would not have a housing crisis this serious, and these embarrassing, slap-dash proposals would not be pitting citizens against each other.
