Re: “County projecting large budget deficit

I wonder where Humboldt County would be at in terms of its budget if property tax assessments reflected all parcel improvements (both legal but lacking a building permit, and illegal such as grow scenes). Folks who don't play by the rules don't pay their fair share of property taxes, contributing to a fiscal crisis for the county.

Re: “Coastal Commission Gives Conditional Go-Ahead to Caltrans' 101 Corridor Project

This is great news.

- Underpass instead of a stop light at the Indianola intersection. A much more efficient way to improve safety at this intersection without forcing everyone to stop, and a smaller overall wetlands impact than the complicated and not-so-safe "Michigan left."

- Getting rid of (hopefully all) billboards -- hooray! Maybe having the clout of state government fighting the deep-pocket billboard corporations will finally make a difference.

- A good, paved, separated bike trail -- wooohooo! Fantastic! As someone who both drives and cycles, this will substantially improve safety and help get more people riding bikes (it will be a smooth, fairly flat, and car-free experience for beginners).

- Hopefully these changes will also allow Caltrans to up the speed limit back to 65. I know, some folks love the slow speed, but after crawling through Eureka countless times on drives to Santa Rosa or SF, I would really welcome even a few more highway-speed stretches of 101.

Now let's get the Willits bypass built.
