Re: “What Now, Treesitter?

To Heidi Walters: This is a great piece of writing! Your choice of words had me right in the woods. You dug up the answers we wanted to hear. I have lived through this horrible time and my heart has been so sad for these trees. I won't go into detail but know that this article had me crying and still does. To think that we've come to the end of greed and mismanagement of the forest, and that RIGHT WON OUT. I am ecstatic. I don't have a paper copy of this, but I will get one soon before they are all gone. At long last, Humboldt County and the trees are free of Maxxam's grip. There is one left-over here in Fortuna that I would like to see go back to his homeland tho.

Re: “Lazio's Last Stand

This story is so sad it almost makes me cry. I used to LOVE to go to Lazio's. The food was so wonderful and the ambiance was so great. I loved to watch the Pelicans and seals while I was eating. when Mayor Fleming was in office, I had such high hopes for a vibrant waterfront, but even hopes were dashed to the ground. The stumbling block seems to be the City of Eureka. We speak of it like it's an entity that cannot be overcome. The city government is made up of people who work for the City. The governing bodies work "at the pleasure of the Eureka citizens". How can a government be so "locked up" nothing gets done? It seems to me that if those specific people in the government that are hindering the future of Eureka were brought to light (so they could be voted out, or fired), then maybe the city would grow. I have a few people in mind who have a choke hold on that town. I will say no more, but there must be a way to remove their vice- grip and give it back to the people who want prosperity and growth for Eureka and not stagnation and iron-fist control.

Re: “Save the Trees!

I have to add my 2c, in that I also love to go up into the city trees whenever I get a chance. My reason is for prayer and meditation. It is the Lord's Cathedral and a very special place for prayer. I pray for this town, because there are so many changed taking place. I liked it the old way best, the home-town atmosphere. But We all must grow and change I guess. I just hope and pray our City Council will not make this another Santa Rosa (or large, impersonal city). I am really praying the OUR trees get to stay and we can either repair or rebuild another water tank in another location. When did the bottom line become the "It's all about money" line?
